We fast for God’s harvest of souls. To do God’s will of saving the souls He died for on that cross. We fast to help our fellow man. Great video. People are taught in the church to fast for a husband, a house a new car, that is wrong–God will not honor it. We need to get the mind of God, We are Word carriers. We are to carry the oil. We need to keep oil in our lamps. A Word that is fitly spoken God will help you brings Words that edify. You become manager of words, how to teach it, how to preach it, how to proclaim it. Tribulation brings patience. Build your understanding who God is which is Jesus. We have Jesus in us.
I opened the Holy Bible today February 28, 2019 and it landed on Zechariah 1
Jesus telling me to say to the nations from what is in Zechariah the prophet who told the Jews to stay close to God so He would not have to judge and punish them again.
A Call to Return to the Lord
1 In the eighth month of the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Zechariah son of Berekiah, the son of Iddo:
2 “The Lord was very angry with your ancestors. 3 Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Return to me,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the Lord Almighty. 4 Do not be like your ancestors, to whom the earlier prophets proclaimed: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Turn from your evil ways and your evil practices.’ But they would not listen or pay attention to me, declares the Lord. 5 Where are your ancestors now? And the prophets, do they live forever? 6 But did not my words and my decrees, which I commanded my servants the prophets, overtake your ancestors?
“Then they repented and said, ‘The Lord Almighty has done to us what our ways and practices deserve, just as he determined to do.’”
Vision of the Horses
7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, the month of Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Zechariah son of Berekiah, the son of Iddo.
8 During the night I had a vision, and there before me was a man mounted on a red horse. He was standing among the myrtle trees in a ravine. Behind him were red, brown and white horses.
9 I asked, “What are these, my lord?”
The angel who was talking with me answered, “I will show you what they are.”
10 Then the man standing among the myrtle trees explained, “They are the ones the Lord has sent to go throughout the earth.”
11 And they reported to the angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, “We have gone throughout the earth and found the whole world at rest and in peace.”
The Lord Will Comfort Zion
12 Then the angel of the Lord said, “Lord Almighty, how long will you withhold mercy from Jerusalem and from the towns of Judah, which you have been angry with these seventy years?” 13 So the Lord spoke kind and comforting words to the angel who talked with me.
14 Then the angel who was speaking to me said, “Proclaim this word: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I am very jealous for Jerusalem and Zion, 15 and I am very angry with the nations that feel secure. I was only a little angry, but they went too far with the punishment.’
16 “Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will return to Jerusalem with mercy, and there my house will be rebuilt. And the measuring line will be stretched out over Jerusalem,’ declares the Lord Almighty.
17 “Proclaim further: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘My towns will again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will again comfort Zion and chooseJerusalem.’”
Four Horns and Four Craftsmen
18 Then I looked up, and there before me were four horns. 19 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?”
He answered me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.”
20 Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen. 21 I asked, “What are these coming to do?”
He answered, “These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.”[a]
Children can’t wait to celebrate–
with birthday cake.
They dress in costumes that
are colorful indeed–
they dress up like a princess
or a boy with beads.
They each have a jewels in their hands,
they act it out in fun land.
The room was a full of laughter
the adults upstairs did hear
never before all this cheer.

Did you know that the life you are living
can be better than before?
When you open your heart and open
to see Jesus who is waiting to
give you peace, break the yoke of sin
and give you rest-
Yes, your life can be lead by Him
and not a life of sin.
