    V. 18 - The 4 horns represent 4 kingdoms. Assyria, Egypt, Babylon, Medo-Persia. All are symbols (for the N.T.) that enslaved the Israelites; a type of N.T. sin. The 4 carpenters. Zechariah is saying that God is going to send 4 carpenters to overthrow all these powers. There was a 5th carpenter who would be over all the 4 carpenters - Jesus Christ. He is the master carpenter, who builds us up.

    Chapter 1 of Zachariah has a lot of revelations about our present world. God is a jalous God just as its writing. The world is full of adultery, fornication, murderer, workers iniquities, idol worshipers etc...The 4 horns are the result of our sins that have scattered our business, families, marriage, giving wars, think every bad situation in our lives. 4 carpenters from God to correct.

    These are not war horsemen but messengers reporting to God. Keep the seals in mind. Vs 11 reported is the earth is at rest and that is mans one world system. Then in vs 12 you need to remember Daniels 70 weeks which was shorten for the elects sake in Rev chapter 9 to 5 months. So antichrist is on earth and deceiving the children and God is jellious.

    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
