He keeps His word
“Then another message came to me from the Lord of Heaven’s Armies: “This is what theLord of Heaven’s Armies says: My love for Mount Zion is passionate and strong; I am consumed with passion for Jerusalem!”
Zechariah 8:1-2 NLT
Nine times in this passage, we find the phrase: “The Lord of Heaven’s Armies says:” When God “says” that He will do something, is because He keeps His word.
As part of the restoration of His people, God agrees to do the following:
- God will have fellowship with His people; He will live in the temple where He can be found.
- God will bring peace, tranquility and rest for His people, even the elderly will have reason to live and rest in their old age.
- God will do all that it seems impossible for our eyes.
- God will rescue us from our enemies.
- God will cause us to be treated with dignity.
- God will save us and will make us a blessing, He will make us prosperous.
- God will treat us well, so we should not be afraid.
It was real to the people of Israel, and it is real for us today.
When God restores us, makes these things happen in our life. He keeps His word.
