Now, for the this week, September 28, 30; October 2, 2020 we enter our 'final' 'section' of the Old Testament Book of Zechariah, posting since July 31, 2020. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Get ready for some continued 'treat of treats'!!!
[Please see the post on Monday, July 27, 2020 for notes to review Nahum, Habakkuk. Haggai, and Zephaniah].
Then, UPDATE: Because THE SMALLER SCROLLS of 'Ezra', 'Nehemiah' and 'Esther' are 'writings' which relates to this period of time, after Zechariah and Malachi, I shall post those three books here instead of as I originally planned to post them in the 'topical' room. So, please stay tuned!!
If you have the time, remember, I am posting a series since Tuesday/Thursday, July 21-23, 2020, 'From Where I Sit', a 'commentary' of the 'perilous times' in which we are living. [2 Timothy 3:1-5]
Now, without further, following our 'introduction' of the 14-Chapter Book of - Zechariah.
III. PROPHETIC BURDENS, Chapters 9 — 14 MASTER SECTION THREE-a
A. First burden: Prophetic aspects connected with first coming of Christ, Chapters 9 — 11
III. PROPHETIC burdens, Chapters 9 — 14
Chapter 10 Blessings to be sought from the Lord. (1-5) God will restore his people. (6-12)
1 'Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
2 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.
3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.
4 Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.
5 And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded.'
6 'And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
7 And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine: yea, their children shall see it, and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
8 I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased.
9 And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.
10 I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them.
11 And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away.
12 And I will strengthen them in the LORD; and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD.'
Notes for further and deeper study. Chapter 10. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
A. First Burden: Prophetic aspects connected with first coming of Christ, Chapters 9 — 11
Chapter 10 — Judah and Israel are to be scattered again, but they will be finally regathered.
[The 'scattering' occurred in 70 A.D, when Rome sacked and destroyed Jerusalem. Many believe the 'regathering' began from 1917 [Balfour Agreement] to 1948 [Israel became a nation, again] and continues.]
v. 1 — “Rain” is literal rain. The rainfall is to be restored to the land when God regathers them.
vv. 2, 3 — This is a condemnation of the sweet-talking false prophets.
v. 4 — This is a reference to Christ in both His first and second comings.
v. 6 — By His mercy the Lord will regather them.
vv. 9-12 — The Lord will not only scatter them (v. 9), but He will regather them. Amen. Amen.
Blessings to be sought from the Lord. (1-5) God will restore his people. (6-12)
Notes: 1-5 Spiritual blessings had been promised under figurative allusions to earthly plenty. Seasonable rain is a great mercy, which we may ask of God when there is most need of it, and we may look for it to come. We must in our prayers ask for mercies in their proper time. The Lord would make bright clouds, and give showers of rain. This may be an exhortation to seek the influences of the Holy Spirit, in faith and by prayer, through which the blessings held forth in the promises are obtained and enjoyed. The prophet shows the folly of making addresses to idols, as their fathers had done. The Lord visited the remnant of his flock in mercy, and was about to renew their courage and strength for conflict and victory. Every creature is to us what God makes it to be. Every one raised to support the nation, as a corner-stone does the building, or to unite those that differ, as nails join the different timbers, must come from the Lord; and those employed to overcome their enemies, must have strength and success from him. This may be applied to Christ; to him we must look to raise up persons to unite, support, and defend his people. He never will say, Seek ye me in vain.'
Notes: 6-12 'Here are precious promises to the people of God, which look to the state of the Jews, and even to the latter days of the church. Preaching the gospel is God's call for souls to come to Jesus Christ. Those whom Christ redeemed by his blood, God will gather by his grace. Difficulties shall be got over easily, and effectually, as those in the way of the deliverance out of Egypt. God himself will be their strength, and their song. When we resist, and so overcome our spiritual enemies, then our hearts shall rejoice. If God strengthen us, we must bestir ourselves in all the duties of the Christian life, must be active in the work of God; and we must do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.' Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710. Amen. Amen.
Thank you for returning on Friday, October 2, 2020 for our post of Zechariah Chapter 11. Amen. Amen.
