Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The Prophet Zechariah



Chapter 4

Vision of the Lampstand and Olive Trees

1. Now the angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep.
2. And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I am looking, and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps.
3. Two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.”
4. So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”
5. Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?”

And I said, “No, my lord.”

6. So he answered and said to me:

“ This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:

‘ Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’

Says the LORD of hosts.
7. ‘ Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And he shall bring forth the capstone
With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”

8. Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
9. “ The hands of Zerubbabel
Have laid the foundation of this temple;[a]
His hands shall also finish it.
Then you will know
That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
10. For who has despised the day of small things
For these seven rejoice to see
The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
They are the eyes of the LORD,
Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”

11. Then I answered and said to him, “What are these two olive trees—at the right of the lampstand and at its left?”

12. And I further answered and said to him, “What are these two olive branches that drip into the receptacles[b] of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?”

13. Then he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.”

14. So he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.”

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Our Father in Heaven,
Magnified, Sanctified,
and Hallowed Be Your Most Holy and Glorious Name!
You Are So Holy and Worthy of Praise and Worship,
we are Overwhelmed by Your Glory!
It is You Who Have Made The Earth and All it Contains,
from the tiniest of Creatures,
to the Greatest of the Mountains,
Forests and Deserts.
It is You Who Command the Motion of the Stars,
The Galaxies,
and the Great Singularities of Time and Space,
And it is You Who Create new Life in the Secret Place of a Mother's Womb!
Oh, Father, You Are So Wonderful,
So Glorious,
So Magnificent,
And Mere Words Don't even Tell The Story of Your Awesome Splendor!

Thank You Father,
for Your Word to Zerubbabel the Master Builder!
For we know that, although You gave him a specific task,
Your WORD is Eternal and Applicable to us In This Day.
We are to approach ALL tasks in life,
"Not By Might, Not By Power, but By Your Spirit".
We Pray THIS for Our Brothers and Sisters in Israel as well.
Zerubbabel's task was to rebuild Your Temple after 70 years of exile in Babylon and Persia.
Our Prayer is That You Will Protect
and Defend Your People from the evil that Surrounds Them.

We Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem,
According to Your Will and Promise.
We Pray For the People and Leaders of Israel,
that They Will Look to You for the Protection
and Prosperity of their Nation.
We Also Pray For Revival in our own Beloved USA.

We Pray For The Swift and Sure Coming of Messiah,
Blessed Be He,
To Establish His Kingdom,
and Make All Things Right.


Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






There are many differences of Opinion on the identity of the two Lampstands, Olive Trees, and "Anointed Ones" Mentioned in this Marvelous Chapter.

Some say that Zechariah is talking about Zerubbabel and Ezra, and the prophecy is over and done with already.

Some say similar things but it's Ezra and Nehemiah, two Anointed Witnesses who wrote separate Books in the Bible about the same event, the rebuilding of the Temple. OK. Plausible.

Some say it is the Two Witnesses mentioned in the Revelation of St. John. This would indicate DUAL Fulfillment. A common thing amongst the Great Hebrew Prophets, a Near Fulfillment, and a Messianic, End of Days Fulfillment, BUT we are STILL talking about TWO MEN.

Then there is another Interpretation. That the Two Witnesses to God in the Latter Days will be the LAST People who Believe in the God of Abraham. The Church and Israel. Indeed, in these troubled times, The Church (Believers in Jesus Worldwide) and Israel are the most maligned and persecuted groups on the planet. They are, indeed, two "Witnesses" for the God of Abraham. Also, the image of the two olive trees sending, through golden pipes, oil to light the Lampstand (The Symbol of the modern State of Israel) seems significant, as oil is symbolic of Nurturing, sustenance, light, warmth, and support. For centuries, this image from Zechariah has decorated Synagogues, Manuscripts, and Various Pieces of Jewish Art all over the world. In my humble opinion, may I suggest that this Prophetic Image is being acted out in the Present Day?

Come and pray For The Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant Israeli Nation!


"AND THE ANGEL that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.


And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:


And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.


So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?


Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.


Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.


Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.


Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,


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.


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.


Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?


And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?


And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.


Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth."
