    Zachariah is a very interesting book. After reading this chapter, I had to read it again to get a better understanding of what it is saying. The commmentary on Zachariah one got my attention. I realy believe I was led to have this material for my devotion. Its amazing how he speaks to us, in some very unusual ways. He is an amazing friend.

    Be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray without ceasing. Seek the Lord in all that you do. Work and ask of no one that you may stand blameless before them .For this is good in the eyes of God. Know and understand the kingdom of God is not of this world . Paul tells us that faith without works is meaningless .But let our faith be seen ,that the glory of God shine ever so brightly

    A question regarding the book of Zechariah; some of the prophetic books seem fairly focussed, but Zechariah seems a little disjointed, hence hard to follow. It seems that the Messianic portions could refer to either a divinely anointed human political leader or as has been interpreted to Jesus Christ/Messiah, anybody else wonder at this given the Jews would have been more accepting of the former.
  • Divine Michael (Evangelist) for verse 16
    As put forward recently by different scholars of the greatest book ever, man inceasant search on the scriptures enlighten man and gives a better understanding when the holy spirit is leading. The idea of many founders of churches today is a clear drifting away from the original pattern of the great Jehovah. The church of christ was to begin at Jerusalem according to this passage Zech. 1:16, isaiah 2:1 and fulfilled in Act chapter 2, the mixed interpretation of this context is unideal and consequencies are never symbolical, they are real. As such, any denomination that does not have her origin traced back to Jerusalem, and her Dogma in line with the apostolic approved examples, is never a CHURH OF CHRIST. Matthew 16:18 Romans 16:16 .
