Power to Prosper, Part 2

Scripture: Zechariah 4:4–7

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Many born-again believers have no problem believing God's power is all-encompassing and available: where the struggle lies is in the area of personal application of that power. We can be supremely confident of the fact of God's power but often doubt whether they can ever experience that power in their personal lives. So how does an individual or a church congregation experience God's power? Power to prosper? Today's passage offers great hope and encouragement and presents the key message of this fifth vision Zechariah received from God.

Power to Prosper, Part 1

Scripture: Zechariah 4:1–3

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: This message begins with a look into Zechariah 4, the 5th of 8 visions the prophet received in one night. Whereas the 4th vision in chapter 3 addressed the removal of the internal obstacle to God's blessing, sin, by the work of The Branch (Christ), this 5th vision addressed the removal of the external obstacles to the advance of God's kingdom by the work of the Holy Spirit. Although the image Zechariah saw may be challenging to comprehend, the message is not as the interpreting angel shares the timeless truth that Zerubbabel, the civil leader that oversaw the rebuilding of the temple project, and Joshua the High Priest needed to hear. It's the message we desperately need to hear, accept, and personally apply today.

Behold the Branch

Scripture: Zechariah 3:8

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: In today's text there is a key term that is highly significant as the focal point of hope in Zechariah's message to his people--"the Branch." To fully appreciate this title, it would be best for us to define the term, see how it is used, and from that we will see two important truths emerge from which we can draw personal application.

Accused by Satan; Acquitted & Approved by God, Part 2

Scripture: Zechariah 3:6–10

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: On Thursday, June 24, the Champlain Towers South collapsed in Surfside, Florida. Sadly, the death toll continues to rise. Obviously, the ground upon which a building is built as well as the foundation that is laid is critical to that structure. As we think about the foundation of our hope for God's acceptance and eternity in Heaven, Zechariah 3 directs our attention to what God revealed to His prophet in this fourth vision. In today's message, we unveil the final two parts of this beautiful picture of our salvation (justification).

Accused by Satan; Acquitted & Approved by God, Part 1

Scripture: Zechariah 3

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Someone once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Zechariah 3 is indeed a beautiful picture worth far more than a thousand words as it illustrates the Bible doctrine of justification. Most believers seem to think of salvation only in negative terms--the pardon/forgiveness of sins. But the blessed truth you will be tempted to disbelieve or deny is the positive component of our salvation. You've got to hear what that is! It will greatly bless you!!

The LORD of Hosts uses a very graphic image to illustrate just how special His people are to Him!
