The Prophecy - Messiah's Second Coming - King Of All Kings
Old Testament Prophecy
New Testament Fulfillment
Jesus came once and ascended up into heaven until this day comes. This prophecy is yet to be fulfilled.
Zechariah 14:1-4 is a picture of Israel's King returning to earth to defend Israel, and pronounce judgment on Israel's enemies. Israel may very well have some hard times ahead of her. For more on Israel's prophetic future please see Israel In The End Times.
This prophecy from Zechariah is still to come with the Second Coming or rerun of King Messiah.
It is in the future.

The return of the King of all Kings.
Notice that God is the one to come down from heaven and yet He is also manifested in a way He can stand on the Mount of Olives. This appearance of God is similar in some ways as His appearance 2000 years ago as our Messiah. who was born so He could die, resurrected, and went to heaven to be the Father until this time when He returns again. God and Messiah are one. For more on the divinity of Messiah see (Isaiah 43:11). A few verses later (Zech V.9) we see more evidence of Messiahs Divinity when Zechariah teaches that "The Lord will be King over the whole earth."
Zechariah saw a King (Messiah) coming two different times and not two separate Kings.(This is sometimes taught as a possibility in Judaism). For more on this, check out (Two Messiah's).
God promises to once again live with us. "Shout and be glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you," declares the LORD. (Zechariah 2:10). This also reflects upon Isaiah's title for the messiah "Imanuel-meaning God is with us". (See Isaiah 7:14)
Israel is located along the Great Rift Valley, which runs for 4,800 kilometers between Syria and Mozambique and passes through the Dead Sea, below Jerusalem's eastern hills. There is an earth quake fault line near the Mt. of Olives.
Zechariah foretold of a king coming two different times. Another prophet, Isaiah, who also foretold of these events over 200 years earlier, gave him many names including "The Government Will Be On His Shoulders." This title was to go to the Virgin Born Child that would come once as Zechariah saw Coming On A Donkey and return a second time as Zechariah saw to save Israel and begin His Millennial Kingdom. He would be Israel's King.
