Please click the links below to Zechariah 7:
This chapter is about a question the Jews wanted to ask about fasting. God's law called for only one day of fasting each year in the Day of Atonement. By the time that Zechariah prophesied in this chapter the Jews had added a fast in the fifth month to commemorate the destruction of the temple by Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian armies (2 Ki 25: 8-9). Not that the temple was being rebuilt (518 B.C.), they wanted to know if they had to continue observing that day.
God's message was that they were not fasting in the right way, the proper attitude or motives. They simply were going through a formal routine that was void of any real hunger and thirst for God and desire to accomplish his purposes. And, they did not pay attention to prophets and to respond by sincerely fasting and praying for God's help so they could live in a way that pleased him and benefited others, including promoting justice and showing mercy.
Their hearts were as hard as flint and did not listen to the law or the prophets. Flint was one of the hardest substances known in Old Testament times (Jer 17:1; Eze 3:8-9). They just stubbornly refused to obey to God and his prophets. When judgment came, it was too late to repent.
How soft is your heart to listen and obey to our Lord?
My Spiritual Journal
What I got from Jesus today is: Was it really for me that you fasted?
What I received from Jesus today is a challenge to our fasting(if we have any). I am shock that the messages of my two blogs today is so complimenting to each others.
God wants our fasting is really for Him and not other purposes!
Just as N.T. Wright says fasting get ourself to be in tune with God.
Please click this link to my Evangelist 123 blog now:
This must be from Jesus to invite you to start your fasting to repent from your sins, be more closer to him and to be in tune with him and with the others.
How soft is your heart?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to start to fast for you and not other purposes so that we can be in tune with you. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
