Scripture: Zachariah 1:1-6
Zachariah 1:1-6 says, “In the eighth month of the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, ‘The Lord has been very angry with your fathers. Therefore say to them, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Return to Me,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets preached, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Turn now from your evil ways and your evil deeds.’” But they did not hear nor heed Me,’ says the Lord. ‘Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever? Yet surely My words and My statutes, Which I commanded My servants the prophets, Did they not overtake your fathers? ‘So they returned and said: “Just as the Lord of hosts determined to do to us, According to our ways and according to our deeds, So He has dealt with us.”‘”‘” What a rebuke Zachariah had to give! The prophets were trying to save by outlining what God was about to do judicially. This is surely an amazing process that we find ourselves in. How much of the prophetic Word of the Lord are we going to find ourselves speaking in the days ahead? Will God say some of these things through us? It is critical that we prepare for the days ahead and get established in both the priestly and the judicial Christ.
