In this Series, Dr. Don G. Pickney takes a deeper look at Zechariah’s prophetic revelation of the Day of Jehovah Tsaba. A fascinating “true tale” of an open vision in which Zechariah looks out across a field of Myrtle trees. There, underneath the shade of the trees he sees a “tribe” of angels gathered. Some where riding on red horses with swords in their hands, some were “bay horses, of gray, spotted and ringstraked” colors, and finally some were on white horses.
The lead angel on one of the red horses, explains that they have been through the whole earth, observing all the nations of the world. They find them at rest with much ease, but God’s people troubled (with lack of the earth’s goods). The angel of the Lord (which turns out to be the angel of glory that speaks in Chapter 2 to Zechariah in the name of Jehovah Tsaba) crys out, “How long on Jehovah Tsaba will you not avenge your elect?” The angel then with an apparent response from God, cries out again, “God sees the nations of the world at ease, and He is very sore displeased with the excess power they wield over God’s people.”
The Bible Commentary, Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament, helps guide Pastor Don in this teaching as we come to understand this as at first just a local prophecy about Israel and the condition of Jerusalem and the Temple, but in the manner that all future prophecy is hidden within Old Testament “local scriptures,” it quickly expands to the “latter Zion,” the Church and God’s plan for the event we have come to know through Isaiah 2:11-12 as “the Day of Jehovah Tsaba.”
Vengeance is a key to the Day of Jehovah Tsaba, but not the vengeance of the latter wrath of God upon the wicked at the very end of time, rather this is described in Isaiah 61:2-6 as a “vengeance to comfort” all those who mourn in Zion to give them an “inversion” of comfort, and as those verses explain, “you shall consume the riches of the gentiles and in their glory boast yourselves.” (vs.6)
The Church is not accustomed to God’s vengeance, although in this event, it’s purpose upon the wicked rich, elite proud and haughty, is to bring “comfort” to the body of Christ – Isaiah calls it a “vengeance to comfort.”
Isaiah 61:2-6 “To proclaim… the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, (3) To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion--to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit--that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (6) But you shall be called the priests of the Lord; people will speak of you as the ministers of our God. You shall consume the wealth of the nations, and the glory [once that of your captors] shall be yours.
The “comfort” sound wonderful! But what about the “vengeance” that is to bring the comfort? What does that look like?
In this teaching, Dr. Don G Pickney unveils God’s “vengeance” and how it will lead to a “comfort” for the believer during this great period of end-time history.
Get ready for much biblical prophetic revelation in this teaching.
