A Flying Scroll and a Basket

Zechariah 5:1-11 In verses 1-4: The vision of the flying scroll – God’s judgment across the land. Judgment against those who violated God’s law, especially regarding stealing and lying. Judgment would be brought to God’s people then to the rest of the world. The flying scroll declares the righteous wrath of God against sinners. The flying scroll could also represent the Ten Commandments that used to hang on the courtroom walls. We are responsible for our own deeds. The world cannot change if they do not have someone to show them the way. We cannot show the world our Savior if we are not where we need to be in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Psalm 147:15, He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly. Ezekiel 2:9-10, And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. Revelatio

Wake Up, Get Up, and Open Our Eyes

Zechariah 4:1-14   Zechariah sees the golden lampstand. Verses 1-5: The angel came and woke Zachariah up. He saw the candlestick which represents Israel. The olive trees represent Zerubbabel & Joshua. The olive trees supplied oil (God’s spirit) for the lamps (Israel) to shine. What do we see? Revelation 4:5, And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Revelation 11:4, These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. Verses 6-8: Zerubbabel was tasked to rebuild the Temple. Haggai and Zechariah were tasked with giving moral and spiritual support to do the work. Zerubbabel could do nothing without God, no might, no power, no money, no smooth-talking, only by God’s Spirit. We cannot do anything unless God works through us. How can we let our light shine if we continually let the devil blow out the flame

Immediate Prayer!

Christians need to band together and pray for all of those in Ukraine. We do not need another war. Pray for the Lord's hand to move and hearts to be touched.
