Michael Jackson Justice: A Temple By Corrupted Hands - Exploring Zerubbabel Part 2

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

A Temple By Corrupted Hands - Exploring Zerubbabel Part 2

Finishing the House of God




2 Corinthians 11:3
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."


I had a really strong feeling about this topic when I started it.  After posting it last night (early this morning) I am even more convinced of this topic’s influence on the events leading up to Daniel’s and Jesus’ prophecies.

There are so many points I could connect in each of the verses we went over yesterday, I knew I would not get them all and sure enough in the re-reading, I did not.  That’s okay.  That is what part 2 is for.

The snow has stopped in the south where I live and to my knowledge the northeast will see the last of it today.  I posted video of it on my Facebook page, but oddly enough, a day after the storm, the planes could not resist a flyby over this house at low altitude.  I almost expect it now when I put these blogs up that expose just a little more in the Bible.  I’m beyond caring if it sounds paranoid or not.  I’m not afraid, it’s just that it happens, the timing is spot on and that’s just fact.  We have a military base about an hour or so away, it’s not unusual.  But when the yaw they create blows the leaves on the tree tops, that’s low.  And they buzz this house like that after topics having to do with the end times servant or the coming of the reveal.  If it weren’t so, I wouldn’t say anything about it.

Today also, I prayed for a friend that I’ve known since before my children were born.  She was my next door neighbor for eight of the earliest years of my children’s lives.  I won’t go into why I would like you to pray for her, but she needs prayers.  Just put yourself in the shoes of someone who is facing a very scary time in their life and would like some reassurance that even if it is not in the will of the Father to let her win this one battle, that there is a bigger plan for her, she is loved more than she ever knew and her purpose is definite and eternal.

It is personal or I would give you more detail, but just please pray for her, and for God to reveal Himself to her during her struggle with this issue.  God most certainly will know where to direct the answer.

One more thing before I continue this topic.  I had found this video today on Fox News and it mentions the four blood moons between this year’s Passover and next year’s Feast of the Tabernacles.  John Hagee is the one being interviewed and since I don’t watch much T.V. anymore, I missed this:

Four Blood Moons Between Passover 2014
And Feast of Tabernacles 2015
Acts 2 And the Sun will go dark

This could be the real deal . . . it could also be part of the “signs and lying wonders” since the establishment news is so keen on promoting this.  I thought you would like to see what they were saying about this.  When the time comes, you will know if it is real or not as the Lord reveals to your heart.

Also, at the end of last night’s blog, “Exploring Zerubbabel, Part 1”, I had posted the song “Jam” by Michael Jackson, quoting part of the lyrics which said “I just want you to recognize me in the temple”.

In the film with him is Michael Jordan (basketball fame).  I remember in a very, very early blog, back in 2010, I made a comment that both Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson were featured in Michael’s musical film shorts.  I remember also making a joke about “The Three MJ’s”: Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.

But I also noticed at the very beginning of this film, before the dramatized intro, the title of the song came across the screen  one letter at a time – as if people didn’t know how to spell “Jam”.  I thought for a split second “why would Michael want that emphasized like that?”

The answer came to me quite unexpectedly.  Considering the content of the lyrics and the chorus “It ain’t too much for me to Jam…” and the message behind the song, The title “Jam” just didn’t seem to be a likely theme for the song until I understood that the title of this song could also very well be an acronym – “Jesus And Michael”.  And they most certainly do share events in the Bible.  Good one, Mr. Michael!

I wanted to share that with you also.  And now, where we left off yesterday continues.



Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel
A House Unfinished



We learned yesterday through Ezra chapters 3-6 that both Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel were given credit for laying the “foundation of this house”.  We also learned that Zerubbabel is reported as the son of two different men (Pedaiah and Shealtiel). 

We never really cleared up the confusion about that, but we did go by scripture in determining that Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel were the same person.  Why they had two different names could have to do with him being called one name in Babylon and another name in Judah.  Both were made governors of Judah at the same time, and both were credited for bring the people out of Babylon and both were credited for laying the foundation of “this house”.  However; Sheshbazzar was not credited for completing it.  Only Zerubbabel was told by Haggai that “his hands will finish it”.

We also left dangling the fact that Sheshbazzar was given the “vessels” of gold, silver and other things that were in the previous temple by King Cyrus, and told to “carry them into the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be builded in that place”, Ezra 5:15.

I have searched the Bible and although Solomon’s temple had been damaged and looted a couple of different times, it wasn’t “destroyed completely.  It was burned by Nebuchadnezzar in 2 Kings 25.  Since they carried much of the metals away that it was part of its details, most probably stones still were lain of the building.

The last few paragraphs of Part 1 I will repost below starting with the description of Jesus and in Acts, Peter and the apostles walking in “Solomon’s Porch”, which obviously still remained of the old temple.

Start section:*****

And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering."

"And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch."

  Of the prophet Haggai, this was said:

"The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."

This chapter of Haggai I had quoted from before.  In the verse above it states that the “glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former…”

There is no mention of this being possible through Herod, and this “latter house” was the “building made with hands” written of in Ezra chapters 4 and 5, then this didn’t happen did it?  Does this mean the Lord of hosts lied?  No.  Because I want to show you something:

Let’s look at the rest of Haggai 2:

"In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,  11. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,  12. If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.

13. Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.  14. Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.

15. And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:  16. Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.

17. I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.  18. Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.

19. Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.  20. And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,  21. Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;

22. And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.  23. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts."

Take time to decipher this and we will discuss this part of Haggai, and take up from Ezra to Nehemiah tomorrow night.

End Section from Part 1 *******

Did Solomon’s porch still stand well into Jesus’s walk within it, or Peter and John’s in Acts?  Seems they all “ran together and were of one accord in Solomon’s porch”.  Miracles happened in “Solomon’s Porch”.  Jesus walked “in Solomon’s porch”.

Is it possible that “this” porch was of a “non-material” nature?

In Haggai 2:10-23, you can see the tone God tells Haggai to take the with Jews.  At God’ instruction, Haggai asks the priests two questions:  If the folds of their garments harbor holy flesh, and their garment touches meat or food, will that item be holy?  They answer “no”.

Second question:  Then if one is unclean by a dead body and touches one of those, will it be unclean?  They answer “it will be unclean”.

God through Haggai then tells them “and so is this people, this nation and the work of their hands”.  He is telling them that nothing offered in a building built with those hands would be acceptable to the Lord because it will be unclean.

He then tells them “Consider this”, the work of their hands, their disobedience despite God’s persistent travail upon them they did not turn to Him – “Even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it”, He tells them through Haggai.

What do you think He meant by that?

Consider This
Do you know what this song is about?
Do you know who it is to?
“Consider this . . .  the hint of  the century…”

We learn that the “second temple”, who’s foundation was laid by “Sheshbazzar” and unfinished, also laid by Zerubbabel who’s “hands will also finish it” was missing quite a few key elements that Solomon’s Temple, the first house of God had;

"Since some of the original artifacts were, according to the biblical account, lost after the destruction of the First Temple, the Second Temple lacked the following holy articles:

The Ark of the Covenant[2][6] containing the Tablets of Stone, before which were placed[14]
the pot of manna and Aaron's rod[6]

The Urim and Thummim[2][6] (divination objects contained in the Hoshen)

The holy oil[6]
The sacred fire" - and

"the dwelling or settling divine presence of God, and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Spirit of Holiness, present in the first." -  The Second Temple, Wikipedia

The “dwelling” place of God was missing from the second temple.  And remember, we know that it was not “lost” because the Apostles in the book of Hebrews “knew” what was on the mercy seat, and the fact that they knew it was protected somewhere and “not lost”.

"Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.  2. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.

3. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;  4. Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

5. And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly."

In All of chapter 8 and chapter 9, they talk about the difference between the “Worldly Sanctuary” and the one “perfected” and not made with hands:

"7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:

8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:"

We were told in Zechariah 4:5-9 that the word of the Lord came to Zechariah that the vision of the candlestick with the bowl on top of it in verses 2 and 3:

"a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof."

When the angel asks Zechariah if he knows what these things are, Zechariah answers no and the angel tells him in verses 6-10:

"Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.  7. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

8. Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,  9. The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you.

10. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth."

The angel tells Zechariah “not by might or power but by my spirit – the great mountain will become a plain before Zerubbabel, and he shall bring forth the headstone.”

Who is the headstone?

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?"

Christ is, in ALL the verses that mention the stone that is head of the corner.

Who’s doing is it?  It is the Lord’s doing.  The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house and his hands shall finish it.  “Not by might or power but by my [The Lord’s] spirit.”  Remember?

They who despised the day of small things shall rejoice. They will “see the plummet” in the hand of Zerubbabel, with the seven that are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth; the “seven” which are mentioned in Revelation 1

Zerubbabel has the plummet in his hand with those seven.  Is he the “eighth who is also of the seven”?

"And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition."

The beast that was, and is not . . . and goeth into perdition; what does perdition mean?

1. a. Loss of the soul; eternal damnation.

Yet Zerubbabel will “bring forth the headstone”, and in the last few verses of Zechariah 4?

What do the last verses of Zechariah 4 tell us?

"12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."



The Two Anointed Ones


In Zechariah 4:14, Zechariah is told about the two “anointed ones”. 

In Hebrews chapters 8-10, the worldly tabernacle and the spiritual tabernacle (not made with hands) are explained and compared.

The two witnesses who have the power to shut up heaven are told to us in Revelation 11.  But way back in Deuteronomy, we are told of he who sits on the throne.  And what does this tell us about he who does not multiply wives or riches to himself?

"And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:"

 . . . out of that which is before the priests and the Levites.


***************************************

Who was caught up to God and to his throne?  Was it Zerubbabel? 

"And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.  6. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

7. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,"

Was it Michael who was there when the dragon tried to take the heavenly realms, believing he accomplished what their fathers and their father’s fathers could not?

What was the difference between Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel?  Sheshbazzar laid the foundation of the house of God and “still to this day is unfinished”.  Zerubbabel “laid the foundation of this house and his hands will finish it”.

One was made with hands . . . the other was not.  The one who finished the one made with hands would “bring forth the head stone”.

Consider this . . . the hint of the century – it was NOT a physical temple.  It was the “house of God”, the “dwelling” which was in the first temple, but was missing from the second temple restored after the Babylonian exile.



Question Answered in the same Book and Chapter

Hebrews chapters 9 and 10 reveal the second temple would not be “made with hands”; because the true temple was yet to come.  The answers to Zerubbabel lie within Hebrews, and within Daniel, within Isaiah 52 and 53, within 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation12, 13 through the end.

In Hebrews 7, we are lead through the meanings of Hebrews 8-10:

"If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

12. For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.  13. For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

14. For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.  15. And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

16. Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life."


Zerubbabel completed a temple.  According to Zechariah 6, he completed the physical temple.  But he would also bring forth the headstone, which is Christ Jesus.  Haggai gives a message to Zerubbabel from the Lord in chapter 2:

"In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the Lord by the prophet Haggai, saying,  2. Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying,

3. Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?  4. Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts:

5. According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.  6. For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;

7. And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts."

We are shown in Nehemiah, what consists of this house “filled with glory” and Zerubbabel’s “temple made with hands”.  Consider it . . .

"Who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number, I say, of the men of the people of Israel was this;"

The verses above that, 3-6 say this:

"And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.

4 Now the city was large and great: but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.

5 And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein,

6 These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city;"

Here they are talking about Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian captivity LONG before Daniel did!  And they are talking about it in past tense.  In verses 61 and 64, in the midst of the count of the children of Israel who would live in this city and be part of the "priesthood", they also make mention of those who tried to get in but could not because they were not "reckoned" through their seed (genealogies):

"61 And these were they which went up also from Telmelah, Telharesha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer: but they could not shew their father's house, nor their seed, whether they were of Israel....

64 These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.

65 And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim."

What is Urim and Thummim?

Lots of controversy on this too, and I don’t have an answer.  But if those trying to get into the “house of God” were not on the register of genealogies as being “of Israel” and were therefore considered as “polluted”, then this explanation is probably closest to being correct:

"Thummim (תוּמִים) is widely considered to be derived from the consonantal root תתּוּמִים (t-m-m), meaning innocent,[1][2][3] while Urim (אוּרִים) has traditionally been taken to derive from a root meaning lights;[4] these derivations are reflected in the Neqqudot of the masoretic text.[3] In consequence, Urim and Thummim has traditionally been translated as lights and perfections (by Theodotion, for example), or, by taking the phrase allegorically, as meaning revelation and truth, or doctrine and truth (it appears in this form in the Vulgate, in the writing of Jerome, and in the Hexapla)." - Source, Name and meaning/Wikipedia

So, perfect or “innocent”, and “lights” or “full of light”.  This means they could not enter this house of God without a “priest” who was “innocent” or “perfect” (not polluted), and who’s body contained “light”.  Like Jesus, and like Melchizedek in which Jesus was “a priest in the order of”.

What we see going on with the story of Zerubbabel and the “second temple” is just another time of what we are going through today; case in point:

Nehemiah 5 talks about the oppression, and people "mortgaging" their homes to pay for food (sounds like today!  Yes the old KJV used the word "mortgage").  Look at what verses 5-6 say:

"Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.  4. There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.

5. Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.

6 And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words."

Dearth” means loss or scarcity of something, commonly used in place of “famine”.

Nehemiah also got angry when saw these things, and hopefully you can understand my anger, especially with those that seek to exploit the very suffering they took part in bringing, to mark souls into spiritual bondage.

That whole chapter is about Nehemiah taking the oppressed of his people, getting them to promise to no longer sign their children into bondage of the system, and gathering them to exit out of the system.

Nehemiah 4:6-10 have some key verses which speak about the "breach" in the wall of "Jerusalem":

"So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.  7. But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,

8. And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.  9. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.  10. And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall."

This chapter gives me a lot of peace.  This has all happened before and God is telling us, in his word.  In verse 17 it talks of those who bear burdens for people, and in verses 18-20, it talks about the sounding of the trumpet because God will fight for them as they work on the wall.

Remember, Nehemiah chapter 7 is where the "Book of the Law" was found and read to the king.  We talked about this on "I Believe in Miracles and a Miracle Has Happened Tonight" back in September of 2012.  This is where we learned that the “book of the law” had a lot more to do with how and with what we were made (the Word of God), how we became polluted, and how we would through Christ ultimately be restored.

Nehemiah 8 is also a foreshadowing of another event in Revelation:

And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:

6 And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground.

Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place.

8 So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

9 And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the Lord your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law."


And they declared that day "holy", because the book of the law was "opened" and read, and those that could understand helped the others to understand.

So the "book was opened".  Is this another foreshadowing of this?

"A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened."

"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."

Jesus, the innocent paid with his blood.  And another servant, who would be declared in his generation will be taken out of the way.  And evil will be revealed, the temple having been polluted; his mind changed yet even as his soul is not upright in him, the just shall live by his faith.

Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel WERE the foundation that was laid of the house of God.  It would not be completed in Sheshbazzar, but in Zerubbabel it would.

Zerubbabel was told to be strong, just as Michael was told to be strong, and walk when not able ,and fight to the end, though he was only human.

Jesus would become a more perfect temple – made without hands in which God dwelled; because Jesus was the only begotten son of God.  He would be crucified and bear our iniquities and defeat death, but the spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead would return, restoring those who believe on his name.

And the vessel of him who would be polluted, as sanctuaries before him in time were, will be cleansed, and we will see the “salvation of our God


"Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;  22. And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother."

23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts."

"And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious."

Why does Zerubbabel have to “be strong…. Oh be strong”? 

Who are the two anointed ones?

We know Jesus is one.  Who is it that stands up in the end?  Who’s name is mentioned in Daniel 12 and Revelation 12?

Let the truth burn a place in our hearts, so that it can never be hidden by lies and deception ever again.  Because the Lord our God loves us and there is no love stronger, more pure, more fulfilling.

God bless you, call to Him and hold tight.
