Zechariah 14:9

"And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one."
Zechariah 14:9

 I was reading this verse and it struck me how utterly amazing this will be.  Not just because Christ will return... this chapter talks about some great stuff.  God's feet on the Mount of Olives and valleys being created before our eyes, and living waters... so much.  And God uniting the governments of the Earth is also pretty cool.  But think about the whole "there shall be one Lord" part.  In this world of ours we worship so differently, and so diversely.  Even people who are of the same religion often have very diverse views about who God is and how to follow him.  And yet, here, at this time, there shall be one Lord, and his name one.  Everyone is going to know God, and who he is, and we're going to be united in having the same spiritual foundation for our belief.  ... I think that is amazing.  Sometimes it is so hard to talk about things now, because we can't get through just the first level of meaning without running into disparate views, and it is almost impossible to get down into the more interesting layers of how it works and how cool it is. :)  In *that* day, we're going to be able to have such awesome conversations. :)  And it just makes me grin to think that everyone will know God.  It makes such a difference in my life, just to know the smallest part that I know, and to feel his love.  It will be overwhelmingly cool when everyone has that. :)  ... Just the idea of a world where everyone knows God... the same God.  The same gospel.  Everything will change.  ... In a good way. :)
