THE MESSAGE

THE VISIONS AND MESSAGES GIVEN TO ZECHARIAH

1. PROMISE:

Zechariah.1:13,14,16,17.

Here the Lord promises to rebuild the cities and prosper it.He was jealous for these cities and was determined to rebuild them. Even in our lives there may be times of despair and desolation. But the Lord promises hope and restoration.

2. PROTECTION:

Zechariah.2:5,8.

The Lord here promises protection and starts to fulfill his promise of rebuilding by sending an angel to measure the city. The Lord promises to be a wall of fire round the city. He says ‘whoever touches you will touch the apple of mine eye’. The Lord is determined to protect us from all harm and danger.

3. PURIFICATION:

Zechariah.3:1-4.

Here we find God’s purification. Satan stands as an accuser of God’s people.Joshua the high priest was standing in filthy garments. The Lord removed these filthy garments and gave him a change of garments. The Lord rebuked Satan for his accusations and called Joshua as a brand plucked out of the fire. The Lord is our Saviour and justifier. He purifies us and prepares us to receive his blessing.

4. POWER:

Zechariah 4:6,7,9,10.

The Lord promises his power to bring deliverance and victory. Not by might, nor by power but by the Spirit of God there is deliverance from every situation. The mountain will become a plain by the power of the Holy Spirit. We should not despise the day of small things.

5. PUNISHMENT:

Zechariah.5:3,4.

Here we find God’s punishment upon the wicked. God’s patience should not be mistaken as his approval of sin. There is a day of judgement when all mankind will receive due reward or punishment according to what they deserve.
