What's In the Old Testament "FOR" Us?
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Romans 15:4

Visions of the Coming Messiah and His Universal Kingdom

We could do a deep study that would last for weeks; however, we will just touch on things "FOR" us that we find in Zechariah.

Does this sound familiar about us today?

And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying,
Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying,
Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor;
and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder,
and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law,
and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets
therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear;
so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:

And we surely are glad that verse 14 is not TO us today!
But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not.
Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned:
for they laid the pleasant land desolate.
