    Jesus/Yeshua's Title as "The Great Mountain" ZECH 4:7

    YESHUA; THE GREAT MOUNTAIN


    We know the different titles of Yeshua, like “The Bread of Life,” “The Light of the World,” “The Living Water,” “The Good Shepherd,” and many more, but have you heard of “Yeshua, the Great Mountain?” This is a title that is not well known, yet it is a title. It comes from the book of Zechariah;

    “Who are you? A Great Mountain before Zerubbabel? A plain, and He shall bring forth the Top Stone with shoutings of grace, grace unto it (him). (Zechariah 4:7)

    The question; “who are you?” indicates that it IS a person that the mountain refers to. We can see some symbolism in the original Hebrew; “Mi atah HaHar HaGadol?” In this verse, we can find the letters YHVH.
    If we look at the “Sod” understanding of “HaHar, HaGadol” (A Great Mountain) using gematria, the two words sum “703.” One way we can look at this number is; “The Perfect, Eternal, Elohim.”

    Two other words which can point to Mashiach are “plain” (mishor) and “Top Stone’ (Aven). While a mountain is “very high” or “tall”, a plain, on the other hand, is lower than a mountain and flat. Yeshua was with the Father in Heaven, yet he left his place “On High” to come “down” to earth to dwell among men. Serve, heal, teach, and finally, die for our sins. The Hebrew word “mishor” comes from “Yashar” which means “straight” or “blameless” Yeshua was “straight and blameless” Hitting the mark, fulfilling all the Torah and the Prophets. The word; “Yashar” is part of the word “Yisrael” it means “Yashar-El” (Straight to God).

    The “Top Stone” is the most important stone, “Stone” in Hebrew is “Aven” which is the combination of “Av” (Father) and “Ben” (Son). And who is the “he” that brings forth the “Top Stone?” Could it be the Father who brings forth the Son? And the Son is full of “Chen” (grace). The word “Grace” is mentioned twice. The word “it” can also be translated “him” There are two types of “grace;” Saving grace and Covenant grace. By grace, we are saved, and through the renewed covenant, we “grow” in grace and faith.

    Another verse that can support this is Isaiah 52:13; “He shall be lifted up and be very high” What on earth is higher than a mountain? Yeshua died for our sins, was buried and then, “lifted up” resurrected and now is “on high.” He came from being “on high” to come down and be a “plain” and then was lifted up and ascended unto the Father once again.

    Have a blessed day…..Rabbi Yakov

    That obviously isn't about Jesus.

    Zec 4:7 Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel you will become level: and he will let all see the headstone, with cries of Grace, grace, to it.

    Barnes:

    As it is the character of antichrist, that he “opposeth and exalteth himself above everything that is called God” 2Th_2:4, so of Satan himself it had been said in the former vision, that he stood at the right hand of Joshua “to to resist him” Jos_3:1.
    So then the mountain symbolizes every resisting power; Satan and all his instruments, who, each in his turn, shall oppose himself anti be brought low. In the first instance, it was Sanballat and his companions, who opposed the rebuilding of the temple, on account of the “exclusiveness” of Zerubbabel and Joshua , because they would not make the temple the abode of a mixed worship of him whom they call your God and of their own idolatries.


    Clarke:

    Zechariah 4:7

    O great mountain? - The hinderances which were thrown in the way; the regal prohibition to discontinue the building of the temple.
    Before Zerubbabel - a plain - The sovereign power of God shall remove them. March on, Zerubbabel; all shall be made plain and smooth before thee. I have given thee the work to do, and I will remove all hinderances out of thy way.


    Gill:

    Who art thou, O great mountain?.... This is said in reference to those who opposed the building of the temple, as Sanballat, and others; or the Persian monarchy, and Babylon the capital of it; a mountain being a symbol of a kingdom, or capital city; so Babylon is called, Jer_51:25 hence the Targum paraphrases the words thus,

    "how art thou accounted a foolish kingdom before Zerubbabel!''
    James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
