From Fasting to Feasting, Part 2

Scripture: Zechariah 8

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: In part 2 of our look into Zechariah 8, our pastor asks and answers the question, "How can we be assured that God's promises, which seem almost too good to be true, will actually come to pass?" It's almost as if God anticipated a skeptical view towards His claims with the question He posed in v. 6. The assurance of God's blessing would come in five different ways as our text reveals. Do you really believe God delights to bless you if you know Him as your personal Savior? If you are skeptical, then today's message from Zechariah 8 is for you.

The Characteristics of Genuine Worship

Scripture: Zechariah 7

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Zechariah chapters 7 & 8 are linked together and form the second section of this OT prophecy. Chapter 7 begins with a question about a religious ritual that had been established and God gives four answers to the question--two in each chapter. In chapter 7 God's answers drive home the point that He wants genuine worship and that worship has two characteristics. Today's message tells us what those two characteristics are.

The Symbolic Crowning of Joshua

Scripture: Zechariah 6:9–15

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Zechariah 6:9-15 is a coronation ceremony that is not part of the 8th vision but rather an event that actually happened. What is symbolic here is not the event but what the crowning of Joshua the High Priest represents. So what's the significance of all this? Not only do we discover the answer to that question but we also extract timelessly relevant truth that is just as vital for us today as it in Zechariah's day to provide much needed hope.

Scripture: Zechariah 6:1–8

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: This message takes a look at the 8th prophetic vision God gave to the prophet Zechariah. In this highly symbolic vision, there is wonderful, hope-filled, encouraging truth for every born again believer who battles discouragement or senses that what he or she does for the Lord seems futile and of little consequent effect. After identifying and interpreting the symbols in this vision, there are three truths every saved person needs to embrace and allow to motivate them in their service for the Lord.
