Importance of God’s Word

In Chapter one of Zechariah, the Jews are returning from Babylon to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple. God reminds them of the importance of repentance by saying don’t be like the previous generation that ignored the prophets when they could have stopped the temple from being destroyed. Learn from your fathers, learn from what your fathers did wrong. 

Charles L Feinberg wrote in his book, God Remembers, A Study of Zechariah: “The fulfillments of the threatenings were so patent that Israel had to admit after consideration that God’s Word was true, even though it was to their discomfiture. Proof that the fathers recognized the Lord’s hand and their judgment.” 

Times are so disruptive today that the importance of knowing the season we are in is imperative. If we must repent, repent. If we don’t understand the signs of our time, study God’s Word. Measure truth by His Word. Don’t be deceived by lying spirits. God’s Word is living and active. 

Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” … If we are lacking in knowledge of God’s Word, we will struggle to fight against the enemy.

Ecc 9:1, 17 For I have taken all this to my heart and explain it that righteous men, wise men, and their deeds are in the hand of God. The words of the wise heard in quietness are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools.

Ecc. 4, 10, If the ruler’s temper rises against you, do not abandon your position, because composure allays great offenses. If the ax is dull and he does not sharpen its edge, then he must exert more strength. Wisdom has the advantage of giving success. (Know God’s word, sharpen your wit by it).

Last two verses of Ecclesiastes: Fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment (Light), everything which is hidden whether it is good or evil.

    In the house I wear fur hat,
    looks weird but, yeah, there’s a reason
    attuned to just where I am at,
    stuck now in the chilly season.
    It’s warm outside, and warm within,
    but it’s more warmth I am now needing
    for last night I did begin
    that darn good old internal bleeding,
    and thus I’m cold, a little weak,
    but I cannot say I mind
    or bewail just how bleak
    this is compared to what’s behind,
    for God has formed my every day,
    and, whatever, I’m OK.
