Scripture: Zachariah 6:9-13
Zachariah saw the crowning of the King, but he also saw something else. In verses 12-13 it says, “Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying: “Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH! From His place He shall branch out, And He shall build the temple of the Lord; Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord. He shall bear the glory, And shall sit and rule on His throne; So He shall be a priest on His throne, And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”’” Zachariah saw the Kingly and the Priestly ministry of Christ that would be given to each of us and then he made this statement, “…the counsel of peace shall be between them both.” When do we go Priestly and have to pray salvation and when do we rise up as a King and have to pray judgment? The counsel of peace is what directs us which way to go. But the counsel of peace cannot be present if we do not develop both areas so they are of equal strength within us. Zachariah saw it, he declared it and just as his countrymen needed to heed it, so do we today!
