    Sounds like the Pastors were combining parts of scripture to make a point that every one will have different rewards, some more than others. Some lights will shine brighter than others. Maybe they were considering lights as clothing.

    Revelation 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

    Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

    God bless,

    Trudy I don't think that Can be answered from Gods Word but I do believe our just father will bless everybody accordingly.

    Trudy, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    He who is born of the flesh is flesh, he who is born of the Spirit is SPIRIT.

    Does SPIRIT need clothes, streets to walk on, houses with rooms to live in, windows to look out of, doors to go through, sun to give light, food to eat, water to drink.

    Behold all things have become NEW.

    You want exist as you do NOW.

    You become the LIKENESS OF CHRIST (fullness of Deity), who only hath immortality (life with no end).

    Ephesians 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God,unto a perfect man, unto the measure and stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST.

    Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be FILLED WITH ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD.

    Which is his body, the FULLNESS of him that filleth all in all.

    Colossians 1:29 For in him dwelleth all the FULLNESS of the Godhead bodily.

    Colossians 1:27 ...this mystery...CHRIST IN YOU....

    John 3:13 No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man which is in heaven (CHRIST IN YOU).

    Luke 17:21 .....THE kingdom of GOD is WITHIN YOU.

    Revelation 21:1 You are the NEW HEAVEN
  • Trudy on Zechariah 8 - 2 years ago
    I have heard pastors say that that your clothes in heaven will be given to you according to your works. I cannot find a bible verse to support this. I greatly appreciate your help with this teaching.

    Thank You!

    The patron Saint is a big hello to everyone. The word PATRON and Host are synonymns which you think nothing of anymore at all. Everyone is pretending to be JESUS or not understanding everything fully. There have been a lot of people called to ISRAEL right now and that is only 1 part of a multi-part progression of Faith.
  • James Alexander Hunt - In Reply on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    Reminds me of the New Testament where the Lord had to return 300 years later and that points obviously as the Lord being pre-1AD and obviously James is a name for who is meantioned, more than once..... and it is not because of the name of the Version.. it is a translation and James is obviously nothing in the Story of Christ to you, but the Patron Saint is the Same, even for the JEWS.
  • James Alexander Hunt - In Reply on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    You are in for a big plot twist. There has always been this significant translation. Even in the Torah....

    Zechariah 8:2 Context

    1Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, 2Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
  • James Alexander Hunt - In Reply on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    What version are you following???

    Solomon wrote all of Genesis you know.
  • James Alexander Hunt on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    Appears the Jewish prophecy of Solomon has been fulfilled and the directions followed. There are 2 churches involved in this and the treaty of Nicea adds more. The Jewish people remember were not all in favor of Jesus and the fulfillment of the scriptures all come to a head at this place we are in time and this is not the first time. Look back to many religions over time and it is not about being right or wrong when many recognize the LORD and that to be JESUS while others contest the name and remember, he has gone by many names throughout the milennia.
  • Fred scanlan - In Reply on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    It is not lord and lord . Its Lord Of Lords!! Big , big dif!
  • James Alexander Hunt on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    Lord and Lord of Hosts... The difference between the 2 is almost enigmatic here; however, we are talking about 2 different entities here. Why has this never been brought up in the modern "Church" and, significance?
  • Mishael - In Reply on Zechariah 8:15 - 3 years ago
    You'll have to go read the Commentary, as it is long and not enough space to post here

    by Matthew Henry

    9-17 Those only who lay their hands to the plough of duty, shall have them strengthened with the promises of mercy: those who avoid their fathers' faults have the curse turned into a blessing. Those who believed the promises, were to show their faith by their works, and to wait the fulfilment. When God is displeased, he can cause trade to decay, and set every man against his neighbour; but when he returns in mercy, all is happy and prosperous. Surely believers in Christ must not trifle with the exhortation to put away lying, and to speak every man peace with his neighbour, to hate what the Lord hates, and to love that wherein he delights. Let the hands of all who labour in the cause of the gospel be strong, serving the Lord in true holiness, assured that their labour shall not be in vain.

    The restoration of Jerusalem. (1-8) The people encouraged by promises of God's favour, and exhorted to holiness. (9-17) The Jews in the latter days. (18-23)1-8 The sins of Zion were her worst enemies. God will take away her sins, and then no other enemies shall hurt her. Those who profess religion must adorn their profession by godliness and honesty. When become a city of truth and a mountain of holiness, Jerusalem is peaceable and prosperous. Verses #4,5|, beautifully describe a state of great outward peace, attended with plenty, temperance, and contentment. The scattered Israelites shall be brought together from all parts. God will never leave nor forsake them in a way of mercy, for this he has promised them; and they shall never leave nor forsake him in a way of duty, as they have promised him. These promises were partly fulfilled in the Jewish church, betwixt the captivity and the time of Christ's coming; and they had fuller accomplishment in the gospel church; but the full import must be as to the future times of the Christian church, or the future restoratio

    When god "does well" to somebody, what action does he do?
  • ALBERT LIBOYIo on Zechariah 8 - 3 years ago
    Only Jesus,is the way the truth to eternity,let's believe his works.
  • Monique on Zechariah 8 - 4 years ago
    hello just wanted to say that just like God breathed on the people of Isreal and so forth He will do the same today God just wants to know can He trust Us. God Bless
  • Mark Diffin - In Reply on Zechariah 8 - 4 years ago
    Marlo, if the nations want to learn about Jesus then why would they come to the Jews who clearly have rejected him? That cannot be the meaning. Yes, Jesus could be refered to later in chapter 13, which is refering to a false prophet, but not in chapter 12, since the context does not fit in with Jesus' life at all. Go and learn!
  • Chris ball on Zechariah 8 - 4 years ago
    God's Word is always true. He wrote it, its inspired which means God breathed. He gave us Jesus, His Son. He did come in the flesh. Now, we have this wonderful word which is in print! God knows what He doing. So, we must press on for the high calling of God! As my preacher said many times before The Word of God Will Help You, if You Let It. Let's win souls for Jesus today and everyday. God bless
  • Sara on Zechariah 8 - 4 years ago
    According to my research, April was the original first month in the Julian calendar. Hence April fools. However doing simple math in my head I backed up the first month of the year March. Which would make June the fourth month. Guess what June is now guys! Gay pride month and I would not be surprised if satan did this on purpose to mock the fourth month feast of Yahuah
  • Marlo on Zechariah 8 - 5 years ago
    Mark Diffin I agree. This will only occur when they recognize the Lord Jesus as their Savior prophesied in later chapters of Zechariah.
  • Mark Diffin on Zechariah 8 - 5 years ago
    Dear Irene123 - clearly v23 has not yet come about. Look at verse 19 - it says that the 4 fast days shall turn into days of joy. The Jewish people are still keeping these days as days of mourning as they have for the last 2000 years. So just as v19 has not yet come about, so too v23 has not yet happened. This is clear and unrefutable. See also Jeremiah 16:19
  • Irene123 on Zechariah 8 - 7 years ago
    V. 23 - After the church age begins, Acts 2:38, the Jewish apostles and disciples went to the Gentiles and the Gentiles 'went' to the Jews (accepted the Jews testimony of Jesus). The believing Jews and Gentiles were the Christians at that time - the Jews 'n Gentiles were first called' Christians' at Antioch.
  • BSP on Zechariah 8 - 7 years ago
    Zechariah was zealous to build God's house of pure worship.
  • Zack on Zechariah 8 - 7 years ago
    Jews come from the House of Judah (JUH-dah; JEW). The House of Judah was the tribes of Benjamin and Judah. The House of Israel was scattered amongst the nations after being taken captive in Assyria. Essentially if you believe in Christ you are thus grafted in as part of Israel. Christianity today does not preach this message, for they believe the OT is rendered obsolete, which is absolutely false.
  • Mark Diffin on Zechariah 8 - 8 years ago
    Verse 23 - this is clear proof of the truth of Judaism - in times of messiah why are all the nations going to the Jews saying G-d is with them. Obviously because their's was, is and always will be the only true religion - this will only become clear in the messianic era!!

SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA ! God Bless you. Shalom yedda dim.
  • Robert on Zechariah 8 - 9 years ago
    In verse 19 the months are the Jewish feast months. The most important point in verse 19 is in the last part that "Truth comes before Peace ". Which we know will not come until the Prince of Peace comes back at the second advent. Verse 23 is a prophetic verse of the Gentile Nations in the Millenial Reign of Christ.
  • Vinod on Zechariah 8:19 - 9 years ago
    i want to know the information about the months mentioned here in this verse
