The temple in Jerusalem was being rebuilt but all was not well. A delegation arrives with a question for the priests. Zechariah senses a deeper issue, and God gives him four messages that expose our hearts.
Zechariah's first four visions show God's unwavering compassion for Israel. The second four visions pick up where the first four leave off - with the nation being cleansed from sin. This deeper need for spiritual cleansing is the focus of Zechariah's second four visions.
Does God care about you? Does it really matter how you live your life? If there is a God, why doesn't he fix this world's problems? You may have wondered this. The Jews in Zechariah's day did, too. Mysterious visions in the night revealed truth we still need to apply today.
This morning we meet an amazing prophet who lived more than five centuries before Christ, yet prophesied details about His life and death, and details about His future second coming! His name is Zechariah.
