Then Zechariah looked up and saw a scroll flying through the air. It was real long and real wide. The Angel told him it was a curse telling bad stuff going over the whole world against people who steal other people’s stuff. The curse goes into the house of the one who steals and it will stay in their house and eat up their house even the wood and the stones.
Then the word came and told Zechariah to go to one of the men’s house to make silver and gold crowns to put on the heads of the prince and the priest. The man whose name is the BRANCH coming out from God Himself to be in charge over everything. He will build the temple of the Lord and carry all God’s shiny brightness. He will be the priest and the king and do it all perfect.
When you are the judge, do it right like I said. Be kind and love people and help them. Don’t press on people to take their stuff. Don’t make your heart hard or turn away from me. If you do that and you cry to me, I won’t listen. I scattered you with a whirlwind to strange nations and My special land was empty.
Later, another word came from the Lord to Zechariah, Tell the people, I want you for Myself really bad. I have come back to live in the middle of you. Jerusalem will be called the true city where truth lives. People will live long and get really old here, says the Lord over all the armies of the angels of heaven.
