Zep 1:12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.
This is talking about the Lord using his 2 witness body of overcomers (the candles) to look for people who’s heart is perfect towards him. Eze 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Those that see the abomination, (spoken of by the Prophet Dainel)
Zec 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall The governors of Judah are the 2 witnesses, carrying out the work of the Lord Zurubabbel is the type, he was the governer in line to be king, from the line of David. Zec 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
Zerubabbel (the actual Zerubabbel) started the house and he also finishes it, it shifts to the spiritual as Zerubabbel represtents the royal of the royal priesthood of believers, (the real church) as they build Jerusalem. Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
“In troublous times” God is using his church to build his church. He is measuring it using his 2 witnesses to do it. Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
“if any man hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth. Full cirlcle right back to Zech 12 Zec 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
These words are so encouraging to me because I have such a burden for the lost in the churches. I know many of them want the Lord, I share what Zechariah is teaching with all my heart. Zec 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
The inhabitants of Jerusalem are the lost in the church that God hasn’t reached yet. Zec 12:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
It’s the feeble, the meek. the little ones Zec 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
That’s where God’s heart is, those he is looking for, the lost sheep.
Jer 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. (every remnant christian that has been attacked for telling people that the church is Israel knows exactly what that verse means)
Jer 30:18 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity
From H7617; exile; concretely prisoners; figuratively a former state of prosperity: – captive (-ity).
of Jacob’s tents, (Tabernacles) and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
Jer 30:19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
Jer 30:20 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
This happens when the church is glorified, it hasn’t happened y
happens when Christ returns in glory, when his time comes. 1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. When you read scripture and see tabernacles, tents, glorified, it’s talking about the second coming when Christ manifests in his church, in glory. This is not to be confused with pentecost that happened at the beginning of the week, the begining of the new testament era, tabernacles happens at the end of the new testament era, when christ and his church are glorified, revealed. “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
