And he does so – it says here – in the second year of Darius. And the Lord then gives a message to Zerubbabel that’s based on this vision. 4 0 obj Are there still nations that are seeking to scatter them yet again? And that’s the book of Zechariah. A long time prior to Zechariah’s ministry, God had been calling these people to repent. This is therefore an important and interesting book. And I trust that we’ll gain more insight into that chapter as we study it in detail. The next section runs from chapter 7, verse 1 to chapter 8, verse 23.
But Jesus died to live forever Lord of lords. I should say, he is right now both king and priest! (McGee, J. Vernon. They are. And God basically says that he’s going to make those fasts into feasts. This is not a literal woman with flesh and blood and a soul. Zacharias was a priest who was serving at the altar of incense when an angel appeared to him with a message from God after four hundred years of silence. It destroys sinners – people who are transgressing against God’s law. So, that’s Zechariah’s first encouraging vision. And this book – which is in the Old Testament – features several exciting but veiled references to the coming Messiah. So, the question is whether they should weep and fast.
And these nations are the ones that are now at ease, as the horsemen just attested to. He’s ready to restore and forgive. Well, what does the Lord remember? The other lost His life to win the whole world's faith.
Too often the dreamers are not practical. But for now, that’s what we see – God’s spirits as he calls these horses going forth to put down rebellion from the nations. Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us. And so, I honestly don’t at this point feel prepared to give the interpretation of that. Well, what does the Lord remember? We need the practical, pragmatic man to go along with the man who is visionary because there is a danger in the dreamer. And so, an angel comes and explains a bit more to Zechariah. And again, let’s remind ourselves that this is a dream vision outside of the realm of time and space. The second time-reference that we’re given is in chapter 1, verse 7.
But that’s not the emphasis of this vision. He does – but there’s going to be another one after that! Yet their prophecies are just about as different as any two could be. 2 The LORD hath been sore displeased with your fathers. Basically, the idea is that Jerusalem will once again be inhabited. a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. And that’s just the beginning. Now, the sixth and seventh visions as I count them seem to be related in that they picture something flying in the air. Ah, but there will be a priest who wears the crown in Israel someday. Just like the oil in the vision constantly was being supplied to the candle contraption – so too God’s spirit would continually provide the needed grace and strength for Judah’s governor to finish the work on the temple. And God’s response will be one that we’ve heard numerous times in the Old Testament. This will be a good thing. And of course the angel explains what Zechariah is seeing. We’re in his dream visions until the end of chapter 6. The one lived but to blast, the other but to bless. KJV Zechariah 7:1 ¶ And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu; 2 When they had sent unto the house of God Sherezer and Regemmelech, and their men, to pray before the LORD.
But she ends up somewhere. And in it we see some exiles coming from Babylon to make a crown. So, in the midst of this situation, God has the following message of encouragement for his covenant people, the Jews. Now, the name Zechariah (zakar + yah) means “Yah Remembers” – the LORD remembers. It begins in chapter 5, verse 5 with an ephah – a large container – going out of the land of Israel. They put that crown on Joshua the High Priest. Chapter 9 starts with an oracle against an area that extends from up north in modern-day Syria down through the Mediterranean coast near Israel. And then for the majority of that chapter there’s this talk of shepherds and sheep and staffs being broken and 30 silver pieces being given to the potter and a foolish shepherd who will not care for the flock. In fact, this was a large part of the reason that all Israel needed to be exiled – they couldn’t stop sinning against and abusing one another.
So, draw near to God and he will draw near to you. And then at that time, the people of Israel will all mourn when they see the one whom they’ve pierced. So… what does that mean?!
