Vision Four : Clean Garments For The High Priest (Zech. 3:1-10)

  • Joshua represents the priesthood
  • Satan was accusing the priesthood of being unworthy because of their sinful past (filthy clothes).
  • God forgives their sins and restores them to his service (shown by clean garments).
  • The priests were symbolic of the ultimate High Priest to come who is called the Branch.
  • The stone could mean the Church (see also Dan.2:34-45). The seven eyes watching symbolizes the perfect care of God for the Church.
  • The removal of sins in a single day refers to Jesusí sacrifice on the cross.

Today we too are His royal priesthood (1Pet.2:9) not by birth but the removal of our sins by the blood of Christ (Rev.1:6).

Vision Five : The Gold Lamp Stand And The Two Olive Trees (Zech.4:1-14)
  • The lamp stand here resembles the one in the Holy place described by the Law of Moses.
  • The previous vision, the priesthood had been cleansed. Now the civil side of nation (Zerubbabel) is also seen to be under Godís care.
  • The reason for the success is that God will remove the mountains (obstacles) for them and the victory will be based on Godís power and not manís!
  • The two olive trees supplied a continual supply of oil to the lamp stand, which could mean Joshua and Zerubbabel in their work in rebuilding the temple.

The true supply of oil for us is from Him who is both Priest and Prophet, namely Jesus Christ. It is He who gives us the Holy Spirit in abundance, as streams of living water that flows within us!

Application :
Write about Satanís accusation and Godís promise in different areas of your life.

Romans 7:25-8:2
Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
