The red alert of Zechariah
Book of Zechariah
Zechariah was a Prophet who lived during the times of Jeremiah, Daniel and other great Men of God. The book of Zechariah is a High Voltage book. If dealt with correctly it is of powerful help but if on the wrong side it can electrocute a person dangerously.
The book of Zechariah talks more on the coming of Jesus Christ and of the end times going into great details of them. It also talks about the phases the world goes through after Jesus. Many revelations which John the writer of the book of Revelation got was from meditation on the Word given via the Prophet Zechariah.
Some of the main highlights of the book concerning our times and times ahead are as follow:
1) The four chariots: The colored horses depicting the phases of changes the world will go through.
2) Lampstand and the 2 Olive trees: The Lampstand symbolizes the Holy Spirit and the 2 olive trees symbolize the 2 witnesses at the ends days who are the last holders of the Spirit of God and after whom the world will be destroyed (Rainbow - God's Covenant with Noah).
3) Prosperity of Zion: The phase in between the Day of the Lord and end times when the true glorious Church of God will be seen.
4) Prophecies against neighboring nations: These are not nations against whom it is prophesied, but religions and believes contrary to God.
5) Doomed flock: The destruction of the false church / Babylon / the institute.
6) Exposure of the false prophets: This is the time and people of Zion who will know the Word. They will catch anyone who tries to deceive them with another word.
Among all these, the one prophesy of Zechariah which is a red alert to all is about the actual number of people among believers, who will be saved (enter Heaven) and that number is one out of three believers (Zech 13:8,9).
Everyone that believes in Jesus Christ will be saved from hell but it is not necessary that he or she will enter Heaven. It is only those who abide by the Word (whatever or as much is revealed to them) will enter the Kingdom of God and remaining will be thrown in the lake of fire / sulphur, made for Satan and his angels. In short the ratio between goat and sheep is going to be 2:1 respectively.
It was this reason that Paul a much anointed Man of God still wrote that he worked to his salvation with fear and trembling. If Paul had concerns then how much should we?
The only One who can assure that we receive the salvation that Jesus Christ made available for us is the Power that worked unto His Resurrection and that is the Holy Spirit.
So if we want to be one of the three then we need to be in the Holy Spirit, baptized in the Holy Spirit and being led by the Holy Spirit
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, before creation Satan bought one third of the host of Heaven down with him, but when You showed father Abraham the stars as his descendants, You also showed him the one third which will be part of New Temple which is rebuild. Lord as the time of great harvest is near we pray for all those near and dear to us that they too be among the sheep and not the goats...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven,
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
