The Message of Zechariah gets Personal

zechariahIn my article Zechariah Speaks Yet Today I wrote the following warning –

We are in captivity as much as they were; captivity to sexual immorality, to greed, to demonically inspired lifestyles, to destructive world views such as socialism, communism, and humanism, and to selfish rebellion which looks to government to solve their problems rather than to God, who alone can solve them!. Our educational communities are not teaching truth but are teaching doctrines designed to bring us down as a nation and a people. I know, I was a teacher for over 30 years in both High School and college and witnessed the corruption of liberalism first hand.

We are standing on a precipice, if we do not turn to the Lord – destruction, but, if we turn back to the Lord – healing, deliverance, and blessing. As the Lord spoke to Zechariah so, He is speaking to us –

“But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, they did not take hold of your fathers? [Your fathers wouldn’t listen.] and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do to us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us” –  (Zec 1:6)”

Zechariah and the Dividing of Jerusalem

year of the treesIn my last post, Zechariah Speaks to our Day, I highlighted God’s plan; (1) to restore Israel, (2) to restore Jerusalem, (3) and to restore His House (Temple). As Jonathan Cahn shared, over the last three Jubilees, beginning with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and ending with President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem being the capitol of Israel in December, 2016, the first two parts of God’s plan have been fulfilled. All that remains is the restoration of His House. I used the beginning chapter of the prophet Zechariah to highlight this plan but, I want to especially point out several facts that I didn’t cover in the first posting –

“And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.” – Zech. 1:15,16 Continue reading

Zechariah Speaks to our Day

Jerusalem Coming “So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.” – Zechariah 1:14-16
