Zechariah 1 - 6

Study 1 – Zechariah 1 and 2

  1. Refusal to obey the Word of the Lord will always end in disaster. You cannot merely pledge obedience and then go your own way. Obedience is a must!

  2. Those that God has chosen He does not abandon. He truly wants the best for His people. Those that stand in opposition to the people of the Lord have no hope of success. God is able to restore His people from the most desperate of circumstances. There is no amount of devastation that will stand in His way.

  3. The description of Jerusalem as a ‘city without walls’ is clearly an allusion to the inclusion of the nations. The Church becomes the fulfillment of the promise made to Abraham. The Lord keeps His promises to His people! Nothing will ever stand in the way of that as long as we remain obedient to Him.

Study 2 – Zechariah 3 and 4

  1. The Lord is the only one that can remove sin. He can do it with a simple  word from His mouth. The only requirement that was given to Joshua was continued obedience to the Word of the Lord.

  2. Apart from the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, the leaders of the Church are powerless to build anything of value in the Kingdom of God.

Study 3 – Zechariah 5 and 6

  1. The way of the wicked will always perish!

  2. The vision of the crowning of Joshua as Priest/King points to Christ, whose name in Hebrew was ‘Joshua’ and who also came to be the Priest and King of His people.
