    The book of Zechariah has been called the Apocalypse of the Old Testament. Like the book of Revelation, Zechariah is a book of prophecy. Its theme is to set forth the program of God, which is also the theme of the book of Revelation. The difference is that in Zechariah Israel is in the foreground and the Gentile nations in the background, while in the book. VISIONS AND PROPHECIES OF ZECHARIAH chaps, ix. and x. form the first section, chap. xi. the second. In that concerning Israel the first section extends from chap. xii. i to xiii. 6, and the second from chap. xiii. 7 to the end of the book." l Chaps, ix. and x., as has just been observed, go together and form a continuous proohecy.

    John's vision of the Son of Man is described in the scriptural Revelation John sees a vision of the risen, ascended and glorified Jesus Christ, whom he describes as one "like the Son of Man" ().Jesus is portrayed in this vision as having a robe with a golden sash, white hair, eyes like blazing fire, feet like bronze and a voice like rushing waters. This Zechariah has of old been connected with 2 Chronicles although Zechariah is called son of Jehoiada. The reason for this supposition is probably that in the Hebrew Bible the Chronicles are placed at the very end. Abel then would be a man out of the first and Zechariah a man out of the last book of the Old Testament.

      The “behold” of Zechariah (untranslated by the NIV) begins the second section of Zechariah’s second “oracle” (Zechariah ). The first Section (Zechariah ) was structured around the “day of the Lord” when God will renew covenant with Israel, defend Jerusalem, pour out the divine Spirit of grace, and cleanse the house of David from sin and idolatry.   By Lang’o Evans Odhiambo S.O.T.P. Ministry Director/Speaker “THE TWO VISIONS OF ZECHARIAH 5” In the first vision of Zechariah prophet Zechariah saw a flying roll; the length twenty cubits, and the breadth ten cubits; after that in the second vision Zechariah the prophet saw go forth two women, having between them in an ephah “to build it an house in the land of Shinar; .

The Visions of Zechariah: Lighting the Darkness: A Study Guide (Revelation Series): Hans Boersma: : Books. The last three visions have to do with the administration of judgment on sin in Israel, and on the Gentile nations who have not responded to the God of the sixth vision, Zechariah saw a flying scroll, 30 feet long and 15 feet wide ( x meters).

All that I beheld was bright, driven snow; the light shining in the darkness. So it is with the prophet Zechariah. Darkness lay over the land of Israel in the sixth century BC.

Concurrent with the prophet Haggai’s work, Zechariah’s ministry began in. Zechariah, on the other hand, experienced God through visions. Many of these were interpreted for his benefit by an accompanying angel.

Because he was a visionary, a lot of his words are very obscure. Nonetheless, it is the book of Zechariah (among the Minor Prophets) that is most often quoted in the New Testament, so it was well known. And, no doubt, during the times of the New Testament, writers.

The Vision of the Angelic Patrol Zechariah Septem Last Sunday we began looking at this book of Zechariah. The prophets whose name means “The Lord Remembers” Last week we listened as he reminded the people to return to the Lord. They had returned to Israel.

They had started rebuilding the temple. But [ ]. And as the apostle Paul told Timothy regarding that Spirit, we must "fan into flame the gift of God" (2 TimothyNIV).

Thus, it is through God's Spirit that His people are able to shine as lights and pierce the darkness of this world. God's Spirit is a central element in the prophetic vision of Zechariah 4.

The 6th and 7th visions were a little more sobering. THE 6TH AND 7TH WERE THE FLYING SCROLL AND THE FILTHY BASKET They revealed that in order to fully accomplish His purpose of making Israel a light in the darkness, God was going to have to not only finish the temple, but also sanctify His people.

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series End Times Zechariah. A Bible Study by Jack Kelley. Zechariah assumed his role as a prophet in BC, a few years after Israel’s return from the 70 year Babylonian captivity.

The first half of his book describes eight visions that all came to him on a single night, Febru BC. Divine light always breaks in, when all seems darkness; but then the chequered condition of our mortality comes to an end, then comes the morning, which has no evening; the light which has no setting; "perpetual light, brightness infinite;" when "the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold.

Book Summary: Zechariah delivers 8 night visions in chapters Though nations war against Israel, the LORD will, in the future restore, protect, bless, and raise his people to prominence. Chapters answer the question about continued fasting in memory of the destruction of Solomon’s temple.

Zechariah's Vision of Joshua the High Priest "And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this.

Zechariah’s words of comfort came to the remnant, and these same words come to us. Return to Him and He will return to us. As we awaken, we see God working with power and authority, with love and compassion.

We see God in Zechariah’s first vision a red war horse – God fights for us and a white horse – He brings victory.

Zechariah introduces himself as the son of Berechiah, who was in turn the son of Iddo, the prophet. These names are significant, for Zechariah means "God remembers,"Berechiahmeans "God blesses" and Iddo means "at the appointed time." Thus even in the prophets' names God has hidden the theme of the book of Zechariah, for His message was a.

This is the meaning of Zechariah's fifth vision, and it sets forth in symbol the great truth proclaimed by the former prophets in relation to Israel's future glory as the centre of light and blessing to all the nations of the earth, as, for instance, in Isa.

i 3: " Arise, shine; for ttiy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee. Zechariah 4 records the fifth of those visions. The NIV calls it “The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees”. I think most others call it something similar.

Whatever you call it, it is the most static of the eight night visions. Text: Zechariah Theme: Zechariah’s fifth vision. Date: 03/04/ File Name: ID Number: I do not know if Charles Dickens read Zechariah, but the experience of Ebenezer Scrooge accompanied by the ghosts of Christmas past, Christmas present, and Christmas future bears a.

In this vision, the angel had to awaken Zechariah from a sleep-like condition and then direct him to the vision by asking what he saw (). Later, Zechariah has to ask twice regarding the meaning of the two olive trees (). The trees provided a continual flow of golden oil to the lamps so that they did not burn out.

was that of filling the heart with hope, even in the days of darkness and of hopelessness. The burden of Zechariah was that of the pervasive power and the persistent purpose of the Lord. The book has been accurately described as the apocalypse of the Old Testament.

An apocalypse is the removal of something that hides; an unveiling. Zechariah's book resumes exactly two months later, on the 24th of the 11th month ()—corresponding to mid-February of B.C. Zechariah records a sequence of eight visions (or seven, depending on how they are reckoned) that the prophet experienced that night followed by the symbolic crowning of the high priest Joshua, as we will later see.

In the last 4 visions, the prophet Zechariah saw the future Glory of Jerusalem. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy up thine eyes.

by George H. Morrison. The first thing to arrest us in this text is how a second vision followed on the first. Then-when he had had one glorious vision-the prophet lifted up his eyes again. Zechariah, despondent, sick at heart, had gone out one evening from the ruined city.God’s sons and daughters who honored the Holy One in songs, feasts and offerings, in the repudiation of idolatry and in their God-imaging righteousness in daily life [Exodus ; ; Deuteronomy ] were light in a world of darkness because as his beloved children they .The latter include Eating God's Words: The Life of Jeremiah: A Study Guide and The Visions of Zechariah: Lighting the Darkness: A Study Guide.
