Capstone Restoration

“‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’” Also the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you.”. Zechariah 4:7-9

Jeconiah and his son Zedekiah were the last kings of Judah. Jeconiah’ strand son Zerubbabel was apparently next in line, but he was never king since Judah was a vassal of Babylon then. Zerubbabel was made governor. But what if the above passage is a prophecy? The temple was rebuilt after the captivity, and perhaps shouts went out when the capstone was placed. But will this happen again in the resurrection? What mountain became a plain in Zerubbabel’s day? I can’t think of any. But in the future:
“A voice is calling,
“Clear the way for the Lord in the wilderness;
Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
“Let every valley be lifted up,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
And let the rough ground become a plain,
And the rugged terrain a broad valley;
Then the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
And all flesh will see it together;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 40:3-5

When the Messiah appears, the area around Jerusalem will become a plain. Will Zerubbabel be one of the leaders then? Will he have completed the temple prior to this? Will he have anything to do with the refinishing of the surface of the great pyramid and its topstone? Time will tell.
