Here, on earth, there is spiritual warfare. We do not fight in our own strength – “The Lord will go out and fight against those nations” (Zechariah 14:3). when the Lord returns, there will be His triumph over all His enemies: “The Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones will be with Him” (Zechariah 14:5). We must not lose sight of the eternal perspective. This is what gives us encouragement: “the Lord will be King over all the earth. On that day, the Lord will be the only Lord, and His Name the only name” (Zechariah 14:9).
