They Shall Look Upon Him Whom They Have Pierced

The Gospel of John said Zechariah's prophecy was already fulfilled:

JOHN 19:36,37
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 
37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

God has already poured out a spirit of grace and supplication on Jerusalem - in fact, He has poured out of His own Spirit upon them! 

He has already opened the fountain, to cleanse them from sin and impurity. 

If that was not the case, no Jew has ever yet been saved! And if no Jew has ever yet been saved, then neither has any Gentile ever been saved - because Gentiles were to be grafted-in to the same vine (into the same promised-salvation), not into something different.

The risen, ascended and seated Lord has already been given all power in heaven and in earth, He said. 

It's just that they were not all 'Israel' who were natural descendants of Israel. A remnant would believe, the Prophets foresaw. Then afterwards Gentiles would be grafted-in to the same promise. 

And there is inauguration and consummation phases to the Kingdom. That was the Apostles' revelation - that there was to be a first and second coming of the Messiah. 

Kingdom Now/Not yet - but only the born-again shall see it!
