    Zechariah 9

    Verse 1 states:

    The burden of the word of the Lord in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the Lord.

    According to Isaiah 17:1 Damascus shall become a ruinous heap. There will be a highway; nonetheless in the last days according to Isaiah 19:23 there will be a highway from Assyria into Egypt which encompasses part of Syria; Turkey; and a couple other nations. Isaiah 17:3 states the rest of Syria will be as the glory of Israel. No doubt there will finally be peace among the survivors of the surronding nations.

    The destruction of Tyre is also mentioned in Ezekiel 26 and 27 (along with the prince of Tyre and king of Tyre in chapter 28 signifying a human and Lucifer controlling things behind the scenes with his history). This prophecy was partly fulfilled; as to some of the details which I won't elaborate on here.

    The same could be said for the Philistines and others mentioned in verses 5 through 7; verse 8 shows the Lord's conquering and control in the future.

    Verse 9 is a direct prophecy of Christ riding on a donkey during Palm Sunday and signifies hi eventual rule on earth. His dominion from sea to sea is also in Psalm 72:8 and was a popular hymn of Sir Arthur Sullivan as seen in verse 10.

    The rest of the chapter talks about prisoners being brought forth; interestingly it mentions the "blood of the covenant" in verse 11. That shows the King of Kings here but apparently can refer to the earlier promises from the Abrahamic covenant. We see the final blessings here in the last verse for the whole earth; and God's majesty in deliverance of prisioners and over all the enemies of the land. Verse 13 mentions the sons of Greece which certainly had some fulfillment in the book of Maccabees but could indicate some areas near where Antichrist rules from as being conquered with prisoners set free also.

    The LORD is praised and magnified as we learn of HIS will and desire for us. Let us build up our nation by praying for the leadership to lean on the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    Thank you LORD for the blessings and daily benefits, for the LORD GOD HIMSELF will blow the trumpet soon and we will experience "... the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.

    17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids."

    GOD shine HIS face upon all on this forum.

Zech. said he wd have Salvation and a kingdom .When the woman in rev 12 gave birth to the manchild the H.G.

    If you're referring to "pure religion", it is found in James 1:27.

    There is no formula. The reason all three of the Godhead are mentioned in Matt 28:19 is because the Jews immersed three times. Today we do it once. But the Jews would dunk three times for baptism. They don't why, except Jesus said when you immerse three times, one's in the name of the Father, one's in the name of the Son, and one's in the name of the Holy Spirit. Guess who changed it Constantine! He said if Jesus told them to do it three times, we're only going to do it once just to be different. That's why Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is used in Matt 28:19. But in Acts 2:38, they baptized in the name of Jesus. So now we have this big battle over baptisms, one is Jewish, and one is Gentile.

    For Howard Dishmon: I went through that with my Dads death. We were real close. I would wear his shirts and pray to die. If it's not our time, it's not. Slowly I joined the living again. One night I had a dream, in color. It's never faded. He was walking towards me down our family home driveway. He was young, smiling with that eye twinkle I loved. I woke up. Later it was like God had shown me that my Dad was with Him and not destroyed by Alzheimer's anymore. Life continues but our loved ones wait for our arrival there. Why would God break their hearts by allowing loved ones see us struggle, on earth Live. Stay close to God. Ask the Holy Spirit to come alongside you & comfort you.

    after the loss of her son is it wrong to ask why it was not her instead of her son and pray for death

    Diana, I'm not sure what you are referring to with Philip. Acts chapter 8 gives the account of Philip's ministry in Samaria & his meeting with the Ethiopian eunuch on the way to Jerusalem. Philip was not restricted in where he could baptize. Could you elaborate as to what Scripture you saw about this, or your understanding
  • Fidel on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    Jesus allowed Lazarus to die to show His power. He has also healed and delivered others from death during his ministry. Not one of those raised from the dead were given a glorified body...Jesus was the first, and an example for us all. Remember His burden was to redeem mankind from sin and death through His blood.

    Why Philip Could not Bautize in the Holy Espirit in Samaria
  • Chris - In Reply on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    Lazarus died towards the end of Jesus' ministry. In Jn 11, Lazarus was then raised from the dead & lived a normal life. Unless, he is still miraculously walking amongst us in the 21st Century, I would say he would have died again and was buried. Yet, he still faced another death ( Jn 12:10,11), as the chief priests planned to put him (and Jesus) to death since through Lazarus' resurrection, many Jews began to believe on Jesus. We don't know what happened to him after this, but traditions give us a possibility. He would then have died, possibly in old age & is awaiting his 2nd resurrection (1 Thes 4:15-18). Here is a man well acquainted with death but remained true to the Lord whom he loved.
  • Corey Brown on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    If Lazarus was raised from the dead can he die again or is he still alive
  • Chris on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    The only two references that come up are in Joshua 9:5,12; and these are spelt the U.K. way: mould. These references don't give the same application as your references to moth and rust, but to the deception by the Gibeonites when they went to visit Joshua.
  • Mickey on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    I couldn't find mold but there's much scripture on moth and rust. Does that include the mold Anybody

    I believe this is what you are looking for.
    Proverbs 21:9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
    Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
    Proverbs 25:24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.
  • Julie on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    When someone who has been baptized and lives with praising the lord in there life and they have passed away do they see all things from heaven . I understand that they can look down on you from heaven (there other family members) but do they see all or just good or anything.... don't know where to look in the bible?

    To Guillermo: I'm gonna redirect on that. I believe that world economies are going to tank on corona virus as we have already seen. The only problem is that the scripture says pestilence in plural: pestilences. We need to be drawing real close to Jesus now. "My sheep hear MY voice". Be careful what you listen to.
    SPIRIT of Antichrist has been here for years. I believe the Antichrist is here. He's in the background. The economies may act like a roller coaster? Get in Daniel and study it. Watch some YouTube sermons. Eventually Antichrist will stand up, solve the broken world economies, create one world money and one world religion. Keep hold of your faith in Jesus to save. Rejoice!
  • Mick on BaptistIsm on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    John the Baptist was baptized by the Holy Spirit in his mother's womb. Luke 1:41, 44
    John the Baptist baptized with WATER unto repentance for sin.
    If you have received the Gift that Jesus preached then the Holy Spirit has made his abode with you. The gifts of The Spirit are for you. Study those gifts. You can ask for what you need. Don't be greedy.
    1 Corinthians chapter 12 and 13. My advise: spend time enriching your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Read the verses Jesus speaks concerning Him.
  • Mick on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    To Rachelle: when listening for voices, they must be spiritually discerned. If it edifies you're spirit, then it is the Holy Spirit. If it frightens you, it's a demon. Even satan can quote scripture. It happened to me. I was a new Christian. It was quiet, I was folding clothes for my mom. "It" quoted Luke 4:18 audibly. My spirit went on a high alert inner freak out. I stopped what I was doing and went in my closet to pray. I knew I had been attacked. I trusted Jesus and the Holy Spirit protected and comforted me. Lesson learned. I don't reccomend it. You can ask the Holy Spirit at any time to help you discern the spirits. Demons want to trip you up and shipwreck your FAITH in Jesus.
  • Chris on Zechariah 9:13 - 4 years ago
    Very true. I gather you mean that our work should be one of introspection and not inspection of another?

    Zechariah's donkey and colt is very important,If ya don't understand the donkey and her colt you will not understand the woman and her child of Rev 12. Zechariahs donkey and colt is a picture of the woman and her colt HER spritual offspring which is the H.G. THATS THE COLT THAT NO MAN CAN RIDE BUT JESUS,Ya gotta realize that we are speaking of a kingdom that is coming with in us Zech.is using this donkey and colt as a coming kingdom. Behold thy king cometh sitting on a donkeys colt,meaning the churches offspring.the Donkey and her colt was tied up in a place where 2 ways meet the flesh and the spirit.Just as the WOMAN had a baby the church is gona have a BABY. OUR colt is the H.G. TH PROMISE
  • ALEX on Zechariah 9 - 4 years ago

  • Sharon on Zechariah 9 - 5 years ago
    When God said a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. God is referring to those who are denying Him. A bastard is a false leader a perverter of the Gospel. There are many in the pulpit, but they fail to see that God will cut them off. They are not called or chosen as leaders by God. These are the men who are the Bastard Children of Satan, and they hate God
  • Alex on Zechariah 9 - 5 years ago
    Just as the king came on the donkey and her colt the kingdom is gonna come with the WOMAN and her Child which is humanity and her offspring Immanuel God with us which is the H.G. OUR NEW INNERMAN HE SAID THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT THUS THE LIL CHILD THAT IS GONNA LEAD US IS THE H.G.
