Zechariah 6:15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
What God said in Zechariah 6:15 is absolutely taking place in the present time.
Yes we all were far off but he called all of us to build his temple.Obeying his words and his voice.
Sometimes it make goosebumps in my body when I read the scriptures and start thinking what an amazing and awesome God we have ,he knew that one day he will bring forth all the people who love him and obey him not to make happy people but doing deeds that will be exceptable before God.
If we go through this scripture we will find he is the merciful father who tells not just to residue of his people as in the former days but prospour us ,he said the wine will give fruits ,the branches bear the fruits.and if we look into New Testament where Jesus said in John 15:5-8 ” I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
So we can see what God said in Zechariah 8:12 talking about Jesus who is the wine and we are his branches.he clearly said the wine shall bear the fruits and the ground shall give her increase.
Zechariah 8:11-12, 16-17, 20-23 “But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts.For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also.Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.God words are fulfiing what he said that many people and strong nations come forward to seek Him the God of Jesrusalem.the living God .all the inhabitants of one city go to another city saying about him seeking him and gather before his temple.because their souls are hungery and thirsty and they come to seek the one true living God . people from.thats what we see and proclaim yes what he said is true.
Now is there any proof of truth required? I don’t think so , people who are still not believe in his words and still walking in the darkness are like hope and Deliverence what the scriptures if we read Romans 9:21-26 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
Here I must say that this not that we have done,or our might so that we should proud ourselves ,but this the Power of his voice who called us to be his very own children of living God.He has chosen us not we…how fortunate we are.
Suppose you have got an invitation from President of the country..you feel proud and telling everyone that I have got an invitation from the president..but that is worldy happiness ,and now the Creator of this universe has called you ,he has chosen you ,can you compare it.
The relishness and the enjoyment you get when you hear his calling is beyond imagination.
(Relish definition: If you relish something, you get a lot of enjoyment from it.)
All this is by our Awesome ,who said not by might not by power but my Spirit has chosen you to be the fruit bearing branches of the wine.
