But this tag is about the Bible – my FAVORITE book EVER! To narrow it down to one book of the Bible is very difficult. I tend to spend most of my time in Psalms and the Epistles. I need to keep my mind on praising God and knowing how to walk in a manner worthy of the Gospel.
However, over the past few years I have come to LOVE the book of Zechariah. Some of you know that politically, I back Israel. Honestly, I feel God has more to say about that country and definitely the city of Jerusalem, where He has established His memorial name forever, than any other geographical region on earth. I don’t see the promises as only spiritual – I also see them as literal. So, with that in mind, I LOVE the book of Zechariah.
I came across these three statements that help to clarify the purpose of the book of Zechariah:
1) The transcendent God is working out His eternal purpose for Judah and Jerusalem, equipping His covenant people to fullfill the role for which He chose them.
2) God’s kingdom will be established thru struggle and tension.
3) A Deliverer will bring a time of ultimate blessing.
