A Thought on our today’s verse

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

This passage is one of the most poignant sections in Scripture, that describes Jesus as the true Shepherd of Israel, Who was betrayed for the price of a slave – (30 pieces of silver). Here, we read about the coming worthless shepherd, who abandons the flock of God, and justly deserves condemnation.

Israel rejected the good and gracious Shepherd, Who was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, at His first coming. He was despised and rejected by many. He was a Man of deep sorrow, Who was acquainted with grief. Jesus came to His own, created world, in His Father’s name, and was not accepted by His own people.. and yet there is coming a false and idol shepherd, who will come in another name, pretending that he is the Messiah.. and he will be accepted –how tragic.

This is a prophecy, which was partially fulfilled at Christ’s first coming, when the true Shepherd of Israel was rejected and crucified. However, the worthless and idol shepherd, who is the subject of this verse, is yet future. He is the one, who that will be revealed during the fast-approaching, ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble” – the 70th week of Daniel, which is often identified as the great, seven-year tribulation period.

He will deceive the people of Israel with lies and trickery, for he will abandon them and rob them. He will abuse them and slay them – but his treachery will finally be exposed.

Zechariah gives a description of this worthless shepherd. We read that: a sword will be on his arm – and on his right eye! Also, his arm will be totally withered. Although it is more than likely that his physical appearance will mirror this description.. and he will have a wounded right eye and a crippled arm, the Bible often uses the word ‘arm’ to identify strength – or the lack of strength.. and Scripture often uses the word: ‘eye’ to designate intelligence – or the lack of it.

How sad, that Israel rejected their true Shepherd, whilst accepting this worthless, counterfeit fellow. However God is faithful to His people, and we read.. that the strength of this idol shepherd, will be terminated. His intellect will be found wanting, and he will be destroyed by the glory of Christ’s coming. On that day, God will graciously deliver His people, Israel –and will wipe away all tears from their eyes.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, what a gracious Saviour and good Shepherd You are, to both Israel and to the Church. Thank You for this peep into the future and the knowledge.. that despite all the terrible things that are to take place, during the time of Jacob’s trouble –You remain faithful to Your people, and will restore to them the inheritance, that You promised to Abraham and his seed, forever. We pray that while it is still ‘today’, many people, both Jew and gentile, would come to a saving knowledge of Christ, in Whose name we pray, AMEN. … More A Thought on our today’s verse

I FOUND THIS INTRESTING HOPE YOU TOO

*I found this interesting. You may too:*

*There was a Pastor who had a Choir team and the Choir was the Best Team ever in his Mind. People would not afford to miss their Ministration during Service and at Conferences.*

*The Pastor died 3 days before the Youth conference. So the Pastor Cried out to God that he could not Miss the day his Choir was singing and God said you can’t go back on earth but the day your choir will be Ministering, I will grant you the Chance to see them Singing on Earth.*

*So the day came and God fulfilled His promise to the Pastor. What shocked the Pastor was that he could only hear two Female and one Male voice amongst the whole choir.*
*He asked God why am I Hearing only Three person Voice yet people are rejoicing with the way they are singing…and God replied, ” here in Heaven we only hear the Voices of those who sing in Truth and in Spirit, also in Right Standing with my Word…”.*
*The Pastor Cried and said what about my Wife and Others?*
*God replied,” they are doing it for Prestige not for my Sake, so only those on Earth Rejoice but the Heavens are not Moved by that.*

*So its a lesson for you Worshippers…. Do not please Man but your Father who sees the Heart, who sees Every place you are, who sees your Commitment at His Works.*

*Pass this to other Worshippers especially Groups, it’s faster.*
*John 4:23-24.* 😇 … More I FOUND THIS INTRESTING HOPE YOU TOO
