Â MyÂ Commentary
Â Â on the BookÂ Of
Earth by www.PDImages.comÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Zechariah Part Seven
Â Â Â Â Â Â This is my commentary on the book of Zechariah. This book’s prophetic meaning is now revealed to the body of Christ. My comments are not meant to replace the word of God, nor be added to it. They are meant only as a guide for you to compare my interpretation to what the Holy Spirit leads you.
Please comment on areas that you feel are wrong and I will be happy to reconsider it included with the facts you gave. My only intention is to teach on the book of Zechariah and the interpretations God revealed to me, subject at hand.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Lack of leadership in the body of Christ on prophecy is unending.Â Those who are pastors and teachers constantly ignore these prophetic books. The rejection of prophecy has let to a great crisis in the church today. To teach the bible without teaching prophecy is just plain wrong. My goal as a teacher is to fill this gap.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Let us break bread and open the book of Zechariah, chapter 10:1-12. Please read this, [only], side by side when you have your bible with you. I use an NIV so I put those words here so it is easy for you to see what God stated in his holy bible.
Please be careful and do not place my words equal to those in the bible for they are not. This is just commentary only and I am not adding or taking away from the bible according to Revelation 22:19.
This is only a commentary of a long line of commentaries down through the last 2000 years. But I do believe this interpretation is far superior to any interpretation out there today.
Please pray for God to wake you upÂ by giving proper interpretation of these prophecies so you may warn and wake up your family andÂ the body of Christ.
Â Â Â Â Â Â For God says to wake up wake up or sleep forever for those [that] live in Babylon the Great, America, Jeremiah 51:57.Â For theÂ daughter of Babel will not rise to inherit the kingdomÂ to cover the earth with her cities, Isaiah 14:21.Â I have placed my words in a different color, this color, so that you may differentiate them from God’s words.
For those climbing the mountain of Zion are also told Awake, Awake and put on your garments of splendor, Isaiah 51:17, Isaiah 52:1.Â So let us not be the five virgins without jars of oil when Jesus Christ, Bridegroom, comes but let us fill our jars with oil, Holy Spirit, and be counted worthy to escape these things at the coming Rapture.Â
Zechariah 10:1-4 NIV
The Lord Will Care For Judah
Â Â Â Â Â Â 1 Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who makes the storm clouds.Â He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone.Â 2 The idols speak deceit, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain.Â Therefore the people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd. 3″My anger burns against the shepherds, andÂ I will punish the leaders; for the Lord Almighty will care for his flock, the house of Judah, and make them like a proud horse in battle. 4 From Judah will come the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every ruler.Â
Verse 1–Trust for the Lord in everything, even the storms in your life.Â God supplies all of creation everything needed to thrive.Â He gives plants of the field to everyone.Â He gives the law, figs, and grace, vine from the branch to everyone.Â God is the planter, farmer, we, the Christ followers are the fruits of the figs and the vine.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Verse 2–Idols deceive through trickery by causing the idolater’s conscience to rationalize falselyÂ a particular lustful sin is okay to commit.Â Diviners like false prophets claim to have special dreams and visions that through trickery deceive large groups of people into thinking everything is okay and that God’s judgment is not coming, Ezekiel 13:6, Ezekiel 13:3, Ezekiel 13:10-11.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Verse 3–God is angry with the shepherds of Judah and they will be punished harshly.Â God doesn’t mention Israel for they were swept away by Assyria and became the ten lost tribes never to be seen until the last generation when God brings all the tribes back to become the nation of Israel with Judah.Â This prophecy called, Valley of Dry Bones; Ezekiel chapter 37Â ,Â was fulfilled in 1948, also called the Fig Tree Prophecy.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Verse 4–A cornerstone will come from Judah, this cornerstone we now know to be God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.Â Â The easiest way to understand verse four is that everywhere the verse says “him” this is Jesus Christ.Â All of these “hims” should be capitalized, for this him is God, Jesus Christ.Â From Judah the Cornerstone, Jesus Christ, from Him the tentpeg, from Him the battle bow, from Him every ruler.Â But from them will come every ruler forever and ever.Â Verse 5 seems to implicate they will be likeÂ warriors.Â MaybeÂ this is why they are men.Â This is for the brain trust out there.Â If the Lord gives you revelation or even a possibility leave a comment please.Â Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Zechariah 10:5-12 NIVÂ
5 Together they will be like mighty men trampling the muddy streets in battle.Â Because the Lord is with them they will fight and overthrow the horsemen. 6″I will strengthen the house of Judah and save the house of Joseph.Â I will restore them because I have compassion on them.Â They will be as though I had rejected them, for I am the Lord their God and I will answer them.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Verses 5-6–One day God will take Judah’s & Joseph’s side by strengthening their weaknesses and restoring them to put away all sin never again to be scattered.Â God will strengthen Judah because she is weak and wanted idolater nations asÂ allies.Â God willÂ save the house of Joseph because theyÂ acted unsaved by marrying foreign women without converting them.Â God will cover their weaknesses as he does all our weaknesses as long as we call out to Him asking Him to save us.Â God’s plan is to humble Judah and the house of Joseph
Joseph is the nickname for Israel just as Ephraim was.Â Ephraim was one of the two children of Joseph that received a double portion of blessing per their father Jacob’s prophesied blessing.
Zechariah 10:7-9 NIV
Â Â Â Â Â Â 7 The Ephraimites will become like mighty men, and their hearts will be glad as with wine.Â Â Their children will see it and be joyful; their hearts will rejoice in the Lord. 8 I will signal for them and gather them in.Â Surely I will redeem them; they will be as numerous as before. 9 Though I scatter them among my peoples, yet in distant lands they will remember me.Â They and their children will survive, and they will return.Â
Verses 7-9–The Ephraimites, Northern Kingdom, Israel, will return to Israel in the distant future.Â This is not the time of the Second Temple that was established till Titus marched on theÂ 2nd Temple in 70 A.D.Â This is the re-scattering the Jews till they were drawn in by God in 1948 in fulfillment of theÂ Fig Tree Prophecy and Ezekiel’s Dry Bones Prophecy.Â God will redeem them and they will start to bear many children again.Â Even they will come from distant lands because they did notÂ forget their G-d.
Zechariah 10:10-12 NIV
10 I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria.Â I will bring them to Gilead and Lebanon, and there will not be room enough for them. 11 They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea willÂ be subdued and the depths of the Nile will dry up.Â Assyria’s pride will be brought down and Egypt’s scepter will will pass away. 12 I will strengthen them in the Lord and in his name they will walk,”Â declares the Lord.
Verses 10-12–They will be brought back from Egypt and Assyria during this last generation.Â There is noÂ Assyria country today.Â Syria is not the same country specifically because Syria is not an empire which Assyria was.Â Assyria is The whole middle east Islamic countries.Â These are the countries that swallowed up the ten lost tribes and these are the Assyrians.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â This is speaking of a time during the 1000 year millennium.Â Gilead is a term meaning west of the Jordan river.Â Â When Moses was allowed to only look into the promised land by GodÂ he was looking into Gilead from the top of Mount Nebo, Deuteronomy 34:1.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Judah and the house ofÂ Joseph will be so populous they will even flow into Lebanon.Â Â This is speaking not of a time today but during the 1000 millennium.Â We know this because the Jewish population has gone down since 1948, not up.Â In 1948 the Jewish population in 1948 was 5,000 in Lebanon.Â Today the Jewish population in Lebanon is less then 100.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Over 600,000 left the Arab lands since 1948 with world recognition of nationhood status by the United nations in 1948.Â Â The surging sea that Judah and the house of Joseph pass through are IslamÂ and the whole world ofÂ gentiles to get back to God, back to Jerusalem.Â Assyria’s pride is Islam and this will be brought down to the depths of Hades.Â Egyptians will no longer be able to taunt the Jewish people in the world for their iron scepter will be taken awayÂ by God.Â They will be strengthened inÂ God andÂ inÂ God’s name J-sus Christ and will walk in Christ’s name forever and ever declares God.Â Â Â
