Teachings from the book of Zechariah.
The teachings from the book of Zechariah continues today, so I stopped at chapter 3 vs 4, and then I would start from chapter 3 vs 4b,
Behold I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
We all remember in my last post, how I talked about this Joshua the Priest, and then how Satan clothed him with a garment of sin, and then God instructed Satan to take away the garment from him, seeing that he was a Prophet, and then God is saying now behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee.
This vision refered to ministers, God’s people that Satan has put a filthy garment of sin on, now this garment is like, we have people do things out of their way, and then they are not quite sure why and how came about those actions, and then they do it continually over and over again, not thinking, especially for God’s ministers, and God’s own people not thinking of what they are doing, and then sin would become what they are used to, and this why sometimes, it’s difficult for members to have break through, seeing that their ministers might be wearing a garment of sin but un aware to them or maybe they are aware.
Now look at this Joshua, he was God’s Priest, and then Satan took hold of his lifestyle. Now let’s look at vs 5.
And I said, let them set a fair mitre upon his head, which means fresh annointing upon this Priest and clothe him with garment. And the angel of the Lord stood by, inorderwards, the angel of the Lord stood in amazement at this Priest.
And should any minister, just because they carry the annointing go out of their way, and then live life just the way it came to them through manipulation of Satan, certainly not, that is why they are called ministers, they should be able to know all of these manipulation, and then spend time to pray, and still spend time to listen to Gods commands, God’s instructions, and so they could be able to render help to their congregation, and this was why God called them and then placed His annointing upon them.
No minister of the gospel should joke with the annointing that they carry, this is because, once they keep committing sin, that annointing becomes void, it can’t produce results, and this is why most Christians, probably under these sets of ministers, would find things difficult sometimes, that is if Satan decide to use the lifestyle of the minister as a medium, and then what should the members do, they should connect their hearts to God completely not even minding whatever it is that is happening in the church, because God could as well make them ministers, and that is why we have churches, they keep raising members as pastors from time to time.
The heart of every child of God should be connected to God first, seeking the face of God and not the face of man, and making efforts to be obedient to the voice of God, for this is what is expected of every child of God, and as they continue to live their lives in accordance to God’s will, they would be uplifted in every aspect of their endeavor.
