An Exegetical Study Of Zechariah's VisionIn the opening chapter of the New Testament book of Luke, we learn that one main task of that man who would become known as John the Baptist was to prepare a people for the coming of Jesus Christ. I believe that many times God provides means of escape or whispers words such as "You are going through this large wilderness because I have a giant Promised Land for you." Sometimes by listening to evil spirits' radio frequencies, we do not hear the words "Change Course or Stop," before it is too late.
Among his many visions, Zechariah saw a menorah (flanked on both sides by olive branches) and he heard an angel explaining to him that this vision meant the Temple in Jerusalem (which had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 422 BCE) should now be rebuilt not by might, not by power, but by the spirit of G‑d".
Summarize Zechariah 1-2 by explaining that through Zechariah the Lord told the Jews who had returned from Babylon that if they would turn … unto Him,” He would turn unto them” ( Zechariah 1:3 ). Zechariah prophesied that there would be peace in the land so that the temple could be rebuilt.
Come you that profess to be God's people, if you have been negligent in the duties of your high calling, and if your hearts at this moment are going after vanity, pray God the Holy Spirit to put you into a proper state to perform the functions of your holy office, and now in the courts of the Lord's house, stand like Joshua, with your hearts prepared by the Lord of Hosts to minister before the Lord.
Now the second thing is Israel's deliverance in verses 6 and 7, Ho, ho, come forth.” Now I don't know exactly how to translate this, actually the Hebrew is the word, Hoi, hoi,” and it's kind of emphatic and I have a good friend who preaches the Bible in another city in the state of Texas and he thought that this was so emphatic that he kind of likened it to the word that of an officer spoke to his company, Attention!” And that's the way in which he would like to translate this.
Now, in the second division of this book, which begins in the seventh verse of the first chapter and does not conclude until the end of the sixth chapter the prophet describes for us eight apocalyptic visions, by apocalyptic I mean primarily symbolic visions, which he had apparently in one night.
Here Tiemeyer surveys the interpretive history of each passage and offers her own interpretation of each exegetical problem, but also argues that many of the exegetical difficulties throughout the visions can be resolved if one understands the content of the visions as an actual record of what Zechariah actually saw.
Hagee thinks the coming antichrist will be shot in the head and miraculously recover, but the deadly wound has already happened with the Protestant Reformation and Napoleon's capture of the pope who died in exile, Zechariah Vision also in Revelation 13. Hagee mentioned the number 666 from Revelation 13, but didn't mention the pope's title, VICARIUS FILII DEI vicar of the Son of God as it adds up to 666 in Roman numerals (Google).
Why, those believers who live nearest to God and have the deepest experience of divine things will tell you they have given up that dream long ago, they never expect to be perfect except in Christ Jesus, and never to be complete in themselves but only to be complete in him.
All the nations whither I have scattered thee, but I will not make a full end of thee ; but I will correct thee with judgment, and will by no means hold thee guiltless." " And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them to destroy them utterly, and to break My covenant with them ; for I am Jehovah their God " (Jer.
And so the fourth thing that Zechariah has told in this thrilling good news concerning the future is that the Messiah is coming and it's not his first coming, but it's his second coming and he's going to come and he's going to establish residence in the midst of the people of Israel in the city of Jerusalem.
