Call in to speak with the host
Zechariah has taken us through God's Plan of the Ages! From Israel as the apple of God's eye (ch. 2) bringing into the world the Messiah (ch. 3) from which all the families of the earth were to be blessed in the Church (ch. 4-5A) to the Gog/Magog War (ch. 6A; Ezek. 38-39) and the Great Tribulation (ch. 5B) to Christ's return in power and glory (ch. 6B)!
So, we can end the study now, right? Wrong. The word of the Lord comes to Zechariah again in Chapter 7 with a simple message after all that Zechariah had seen: the days are evil and we are to DIE TO SELF. We must redeem the time while there's still time (Ephesians 5:15-16). We are engaged in the greatest war that has ever been waged, and we must be suited in the armor of God, taking up our crosses daily and following Jesus. He uttered that declaration from the place that the plan to stop Him was first hatched: Caesarea Philippi, which is at the base of Mount Hermon (Matthew 16).
It's good to talk.
