    Zechariah 1
    The Lord is using the nation to do His will, however, the intent of man is evil.
    Persia oppressing Isreal etc. (The horn nations)
    The four horns represent the Gentile nations oppressing Israel.
    The Lord is going to use the prayer of the saints to release power against these Gentile nations.

    Zechariah 10
    The Lord is not returning until Israel welcomes Him home. Keep praying for this even if we are not sure how many Israel has come to salvation now yet.
    Many Jewish will return and call on the name of the Lord. Also, there is going to be a great revival after the return of Jesus.
    (This is similar to Israel crying out to the Lord during the oppression in Egypt and revival broke out, and God raised up Moses for them.)
    (1948, Israel declared as a nation and revival broke out)

    Zechariah 14
    If you fail to celebrate this feast, there is going to be consequences because this is the celebration of the joy of being in God's presence.
    There is seven feast in the book of Leviticus, the seventh is the final harvest feast at the end of time. This is similar to Thanksgiving. Leviticus 23.

    The Prophet Zechariah – The Lord Remembers:

    Zechariah 1:1-21, Zechariah 2:1-12 The Lord was very angry with the forefathers of the Israelites for their sins and apostasy. They experienced the fulfilment of His threats and decrees against them and were punished as their deeds deserved1. But now, if you turn to Him, He will turn again to you. Do not be like your ancestors who failed to heed the prophets.

    The Lord says: I am very concerned for Jerusalem and the holy Land and now I am exceedingly angry with those nations who have harmed My people and encroached upon their heritage2. They have caused distress and harm far beyond what I had planned for them. For they are My chosen flock and it is My holy Land.

    The Lord has sent me on a glorious mission to those peoples who have injured His people and plundered His Land. The Lord will shake His Right hand over His enemies3 and they, in turn will be injured and plundered.

    Be silent before the Lord; all of humanity, for He comes out now from His dwelling place in heaven, to judge the nations4 and punish all His enemies. Four destroyers will come against the four empires that scattered Israel and Judah5 and those peoples who destroyed Jerusalem will in turn be destroyed.

    Therefore I will come back to Zion with mercy and compassion. My House will be built again in Jerusalem6 and the Land will brim with prosperity7, for I will bless My righteous people and give them peace. Very soon Jerusalem will become so populated8, it will be too big for walls to surround it, but the Lord will be like a fire of protection around it and His glory will come back to the new Temple9. Many nations will be joined with the Lord and will become His people.

    Rejoice now, My people, for I am coming to rescue you and My spirit will rest upon you10. Judah will be My special portion and I will make Jerusalem My choice.
