Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it Zechariah 4:7 ESV
The text of this brief message is Word declared by the Angel is the word from the Almighty God assuring Zerubbabel one of the two anointed that he does not need Might or strength but by the Spirit of God. A mountain is often used to speak of the obstacles that man faces in life
Our Lord Jesus Christ also taught us in Mark 13:11 to speak to mountains or the obstacles of life, when he said: whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him”. Your not having any doubt is because you do not rely on your own strength but by the spirit of God. As such, with your faith in God nothing shall be impossible for you.
The Psalmist also declares that: The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. (Psalms 97:5). Therefore when you command your mountain to move, the power of God will cause the obstacle to fall
Everyone has a different mountain of challenge. The Mountain before the entire world today the Pandemic of COVID 19. People are getting restless at the length time it is taking for normalcy to return to life. People are wondering how we will get out of this Governments all over the world are also worried about the economy. But we have an assurance in the Word of God that the mountain shall melt like wax before God as we keep calling on Him in prayers and supplications.
Brethren, what is the challenge that COVID 19 has thrown to you? Is it the fear of your work? Or the loss of a loved one. No matter how terrible it is. Each constitute a mountain that you cannot by your power or knowledge move. Just like the women were saying to each other on the morning of Resurrection saying amongst themselves: “…Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? -Mark 16:3
But when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled already away. – v 4. The Pandemic Mountain of COVID 19 will also be rolled away by the power of God. Jesus taught that if we have faith we shall command mountains to move and they will move. Our fervent prayer is our command. Let us hold unto our faith. The mountain shall move. The Word of God to you and I today is do not fear. Because God will roll away the stone, He will roll away the mountain of COVID 19 in Jesus name. Jesus did not need anyone to roll away the stone for Him because He is the resurrection and the life. That same power is available to roll away COVID 19.
Also, Just as the Psalmist says in Psalm 97:9 that God Almighty is the ruler of all the earth; and He is much greater and mightier than all the gods of COVID 19. God rules over the earth and the mountain. The Light of God will shine and bring gladness to humanity. God will bring gladness to the Work if His Hands (the world) and we all will remember what God has done, and we will give him in Jesus name.
In conclusion, like the word of God came that the mountains before Zerubbabel became plain the Mountain of COVID 19 in the universe, against the life, health and wealth of man shall also be made plain by the Power if the Almighty God Amen.
