ZECHARIAH THE PROPHET LESSON 11
CHAPTER 7 – RITUAL OR OBEDIEINCE?
 
The young prophet Zechariah, probably about twenty years old, received his eight visions around 519-520 B.C. Now we shift to chapters 7 and 8 about 518 B.C. as the word of the LORD of hosts continued to come to him.
 
Zechariah and a number of other men went to the House of God (Zech. 7:2) to pray and observe a fast. During the Babylonian exile, the Jews had decided to establish a fast during the fifth month to observe the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon. This was not a God-ordained feast, rather one they decided on their own to do annually. They also kept a God-ordained biblical feast in the seventh month, likely the Day of Atonement, on the religious year as it was a solemn fast.
 
They questioned the priests as to whether they should continue that fifth month fast seeing as how Jerusalem had now been rebuilt. The word of the LORD came to Zechariah rebuking them for simply doing the fasts and observances for themselves and their own reasons rather than out of true devotion and worship to Yahweh (Jehovah, LORD).
 
The LORD said that they had refused to give heed to the former prophets, and that is why they had been sent into exile and the land was laid to waste. Their religion had become a mere formality without sincerity. They had allowed evil to rule their land.
 
God then instructed them to do that which is good and righteous: execute true judgment, show mercy, and compassion to everyone, do not oppress anyone, and to not imagine (plot) evil against anyone. Failure to live accordingly is why they had (v. 12) “made their hearts (like) an adamant stone…” A stony heart, hardened toward both God and fellowman, had brought the judgment. They only had a form of religion, but no love for God or mankind in their hearts (spirit).
 
Today most who claim to be “Christians” only have a form of religion also. It may just be a ritual duty they perform. Maybe they are only a “cultural Christian” who does not even attend church meetings or gathers; they were only “born” into it.
 
God does not care for your culture or ritual. He cares about the sincere desires and intentions of your heart. True devotion comes from within, not from the externals. Let your true desires be unto God first, then to family, then to others. Love is the true motivating factor. Love and compassion go hand in hand.
 
Examine yourself. See if you need “a heart tune-up.”

WHEN GOD IS SILENT
 
David was the youngest in the family. Do you know what that is like? Well, it is the place that the older brothers and sisters look at you as not being on the same level. The baby. The one that should take advice from the “older” ones. Often the youngest is made to feel “less than adequate.” 
 
Yet with David it was different. He didn’t get his “perks” from his family’s praise. He spent most of his time alone with sheep. He knew them well. Perhaps he knew each of them by name. Sheep know their shepherd’s voice and follow them. David even wrote about it in Psalm 23. 
 
Those years as a young boy also brought him close to the “great shepherd.” He knew his voice. He followed Him. He had gained much spiritual strength from those lonely days where it was just him and the sheep. He became strong physically and spiritually. In the natural he fought off a lion and a bear. He was a protector of what he was made steward over.
 
Those years did not go to waste for David. It prepared him to face a giant and win a battle. He was anointed by Samuel to be king, but it took years before he had a kingdom. Those years were preparation for him. He knew the lonely walk where it was just himself and God, and it prepared him for the time where he could say, “thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.” Yes, there were many enemies. His brothers were jealous. The reigning king hated him. He lost his best friend Jonathan in battle, and he had sons that turned on him.
 
Sounds like real life, right? Yes, my friends it does. And that brings me to this. There will be times that it seems that God is silent. You wait for the “promise” to come, and it seems like it has been permanently delayed. You cry out to God and you “hear nothing.” Your tears may flow like a river, while you question God as to why you are going through these things. Yet, in your heart, you know that God is with you. He is refining you in these quiet, silent days. He is making you dependent upon your “shepherd” rather than the armor of man. These are the days that you will come out of the fire stronger than ever before. 
 
When the medical report doesn’t look good. When the family turns their back on you. When your friends scatter just when you need their help. When your finances are low and you sense your world is crashing, you must remember the voice of the Shepherd. He is saying, “I will lead you. I will carry you. I will never forsake you.” The silence can be deafening, but the ears of the spirit hear him say, “Peace be still. Trust me and we will make it through this together.”
 
Be blessed today, knowing that the one that created you, the shepherd of your soul has not forgotten you. He has been there all along, allowing your faith to grow stronger in Him as He brings you through the waters and the fires of life. Your day of victory is coming.

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION
 
Would you come apart and be with me today saith the Lord? For I would take the time to have you sit at my feet and just enjoy being in your presence. Yes, I enjoy that as much as you do my child. There are so few that turn the distractions off and come to this place and rest in my presence. For here, in this hour it is more necessary than ever. For I will show you of things to come and warm your heart with my love. Many have grown cold towards me for they think that I have forgotten them when prayers are not answered the way they expected. For those that are truly intimate with me, know that there must be a shedding away of the old, in order for the new to come. Many are hanging on to the old wineskin which cannot hold the new for it would burst. As they do not understand, they have walked away in disappointment. I will not force my presence upon anyone. I would say, it is of the free will to come and be close. 
Yet, it takes more than a yes, I will. It takes a resolve to tune out everything that is a distraction and just sit quietly at my feet. I would say to you that as the old wineskin is removed, that the new will be far better than the old. It will cause your faith to grow and be stretched in the hours ahead. It must happen if the remnant is to rise up in my Spirit and do what I desire them to do. There has to be a shedding and a shredding. Shredding Lord? Yes. Shredding of that which was the old so that there is no place to go back to. Shredding the hopes and dreams that have failed and shredding the disappointments and even the victories. For if you dwell on the what ifs, and the what weres, you can never become the what is. 
 
So, my child, sit at my feet and let me do the work necessary to bring you to that place of total dependence on me. Not on any others or anything. Totally dependent upon me. I will remove the old and place the new upon you. During this time, it will be painful, for not only am I removing the old things but also removing some people from your life, which is necessary for you to grow into the new wineskin. Oh, what a beautiful wineskin it will be as you yield to me. I have long waited for you to come to me and allow me to do this my child. For the hours ahead will require it more than ever. And, when I am finished, you shall shine like pure gold refined in the furnace, yes, the furnace, but my reflection shall be upon you as you allow this. When others see you, they will see me. For this is your hour to be what I have called you to be saith the Lord.

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

There is no better test of someone’s personal integrity...Than their actions when they are wrong...OR when they themselves have been wronged by another person. God’s Word has much to say (both directly & indirectly) regarding living a life of integrity. Hebrews 13:18 says, “Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things.” Then Proverbs 11:3, “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the unfaithful destroys them.” Have a blessed day; And guard your integrity...It’s priceless.

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

Paul, to the church at Corinth:
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God." ~ 2 Corinth 2:17

Lucifer's Fall:
"Through the abundance of your commerce (orig Heb. - "merchandise") you were internally filled with lawlessness and violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you out as a profane and unholy thing from the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire."
~ Ezekiel 28:16

God is raising up reformers in this hour who will be very careful not to make merchandise of the anointing that God has given them. There will also be many prophetic reformers who the Lord will raise up to call out and confront this error and perversion in the Body. Some things are NOT for sale, and should not be used for personal gain!

Please understand me, I am not advocating that ministers should not receive an offering, or that the Lord wants us poor or broke. I am also not saying that those in the ministry should not sell books, CD's, DVD's or things of that sort...but when that becomes the most important thing, or when you will not do anything without a high pricetag, then it has become solely a business, and you are making merchandise of what God has freely given you. I do believe that those who are asked to come and minister at a church or event, should receive some type of "love offering" or monetary gift for their time of ministry ("a workman deserves his wages"- 1Tim 5:18), but that should not be the primary reason they agree to come, nor should it be the driving force behind what engagements they schedule or receive.

If God has told you to go somewhere to deliver a message, in the end it shouldn't matter if they are able to pay you or not. Where He guides, He provides. If He has lead you there, He will provide resources and will reward you for your time, even if it is through another source. The question should never be "how much money are they willing to give me to come?", but only "is this my assignment?".
I have actually known of "prophets" who required an extra $1000 if they were asked to prophesy during a meeting. Is that really what God created the five-fold ministry for??
Is this really what we are allowing and accepting in the body of Christ? Is this perfecting the saints? Surely not!!
This is also something that relates to ministry networks and/or alignments. They are both good things in their own right, but when your main objective is to get more people to sign up or "align" with you so you can have more monthly income, then your heart objective & purpose have become perverted.
Churches are also not exempt from this "merchandising" issue.
Some Pastors will cater to high-giving or wealthier members, or they will make sure to never say anything to upset or offend those who have much influence in the church...mostly because they are afraid they will leave and take many "tithe-paying" members with them. Is this really the kind of fear we are to be functioning with in the body of Christ? Is this not fearing what man can do to us, instead of what God is saying and wanting to do? Tithers, givers, or "partners" are not our supply...God is. When we begin to fear man more than God, we are in much danger of losing all that the Lord has allowed us to have for His puposes.
I have been around some of the largest churches and ministries in the world, and also some of the smallest, and this much I know - God is still the provider, and all He requires is obedience and trust. If we are willing and obedient, we will eat the good of the land (Isa 1:19).
It is time for a shift in our mindsets...a reformation of the way we do "church" and ministry. It is time to reform the bride of Christ, until she is fully dedicated to His purpose and will, and not her own.
