December 21, Reading 2 – Zechariah 4

Reading

Audio, Visual

SAA Notes

You will find this vision in Revelation 11 as well. It is a vision of the heavenly Tabernacle. The King and Priest (those anointed) bring the outpouring of the Holy Spirit through their work. Does this tell us anything about Jesus and His work?

SJA Notes

Here we read words that have been made into song, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”

What wonderful words these are to us.

It’s the message of Israel at the Red Sea, of Gideon, of David and Goliath, of the Lord speaking to Elijah in a low whisper.

God works in such a different way, on such a different level, than any other entity in life.

He works BY HIS SPIRIT!

Nobody else, no other nation, no government, no king or president can do this!

We can be encouraged in still quiet voice of the Lord, in the day of small things, though we may not be great and mighty – We are of the Lord, and His Spirit works through us! The world can never offer this.

Hallelujah, what a God we have!

* Dear Lord,

Thank You that You work through Your Spirit.

Thank You that Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit, to be our companion in life.

Thank You that Your Spirit is at work in and through us as we walk this road, making us more like Jesus, and pointing others to Him.

Amen.
