Prophetic Voices Zechariah

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Are we afraid?” “Are we afraid of building God’s kingdom?” It’s time to be Zechariah’d

Timeline to Zechariah:

Timeline to Zechariah 1000 BC Solomon’s Temple was built. 922 BC Israel splits in two . 721 BC Northern Israel is destroyed. 587 BC Southern Israel – also known as Judah, is completely ransacked and destroyed. 520 BC Prince Cyrus lets the Israelites return to Judah . Zechariah tells them that God wants them to build a new temple.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“ He asked me, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” Zechariah 4:2-3

PowerPoint Presentation:

The lamp stand is Israel. The tree branches are the two leaders appointed by God . The golden oil comes from God himself .

PowerPoint Presentation:

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel : ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. “What are you, O mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of God bless it! God bless it!’” Then the word of the Lord came to me: “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you. “Who despises the day of small things? Men will rejoice when they see the plumb-line in the hand of Zerubbabel .” Zechariah 4:6-10

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord Almighty.”:

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord Almighty.” GOD will build his church. He will build it by his Spirit, and he will use US as his instruments in that work. But it will be HIS work.

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord Almighty.”:

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord Almighty.” The construction manager knows what he’s doing. He’s the one who has the plans. Everyone is given work to do that is important.

“The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.” :

“The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.” God chooses the people and God chooses the timing. It doesn’t matter what We think. What matters is what God says. It doesn’t matter what we face, as long as we follow!

“The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.” :

“The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.” We tend towards wanting success whereas God just wants our obedience. Are we still able to follow, even when its difficult? We will see God move mountains to build his church.

“Who despises the day of small things?” :

“Who despises the day of small things?” The temple was the place where God lived on earth with his people. “I want to be with you again! Return to me and I will return and live with you again.”

“Who despises the day of small things?” :

“Who despises the day of small things?” Just the presence of the temple signified God’s presence with them. “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?” 2 Corinthians 3:16

“Who despises the day of small things?” :

“Who despises the day of small things?” Do you ever think that what God is doing here is small or unimportant? Sometimes we despise the days of small beginnings but God doesn’t.

Zechariah message:

Zechariah message God will build His church by His Spirit, in His way, with His people and in His time. “Will you follow?
