The Messiah is Yahweh

Jeremiah 23:5 Look, the days are coming, Yahweh declares, when I shall raise an upright Branch for David; he will reign as king and be wise, doing what is just and upright in the country. 6 In his days Judah will triumph and Israel live in safety. And this is the name he will be called, 'Yahweh-is-our-Saving-Justice.' "

Isaiah 24:21, 23 In that day … The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for Yahweh Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously.

Yahweh has come once

Zechariah 8:3 This is what Yahweh says: "I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of Yahweh Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain."

Second Coming - Yahweh will return

Isaiah 26:21 See, Yahweh is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her; she will conceal her slain no longer. 27:1 In that day, Yahweh will punish with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea. 2 In that day-- "Sing about a fruitful vineyard: 3 I, Yahweh, watch over it;

Isaiah 31:4 Yahweh Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights. 5 Like birds hovering overhead, Yahweh Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will 'pass over' it and will rescue it." 6 Return to him you have so greatly revolted against, O Israelites. 7 For in that day every one of you will reject the idols of silver and gold your sinful hands have made. 8 "Assyria will fall by a sword that is not of man; a sword, not of mortals, will devour them.

Hosea 6:3 Let us acknowledge Yahweh; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth."

Joel 2:11 Yahweh thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey his command. The day of Yahweh is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?

Joel 3:17 'Then you will know that I, Yahweh your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.

Micah 1:3 Look! Yahweh is coming from his dwelling place; he comes down and treads the high places of the earth.

Zechariah 9:14 Then Yahweh will appear over them; his arrow will flash like lightning. The Sovereign Yahweh will sound the trumpet; he will march in the storms of the south,

Zechariah 14:3 Then Yahweh will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. 5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then Yahweh my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

Wedding Feast in the Kingdom

Isaiah 25:6 On this mountain Yahweh Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine-- the best of meats and the finest of wines.

Compare to:

Luke 12:37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.

The Wrath of Yahweh

Isaiah 2:10 Go into the rocks, hide in the ground from dread of Yahweh and the splendor of his majesty! 11 The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men brought low; Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day.

Compare to:

Revelation 6:15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

Food for Thought

These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time (Psalm 104:27).

Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns (Matthew 24:45-46).
