There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood (Zechariah 12:10-13:1)

Phillip Stuckey, November 11, 2018
Part of the Hymn Studies series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

The prophecy in Zechariah 13 looks to the time of the coming of Israel’s Messiah. That time would not only be a time of judgment but a time of restoration, a time when God would redeem His people and cleanse the people from their sin (Zech. 13:1-6). Such was a familiar promise in the prophets (Ezek. 36:25; Isa. 12:2-3). God had opened a fountain before to cleanse the world from sin in the great flood in Noah’s day (Gen. 7:11). This imagery is the basis for the hymn we want to consider tonight, William Cowper’s, “There Is A Fountain.”

Zechariah 12:10–13:1 (Listen)

10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. 11 On that day the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 The land shall mourn, each family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the Shimeites by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 and all the families that are left, each by itself, and their wives by themselves.

13:1 “On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
