Zechariah 6 | The Mountains of Bronze

Dear Saints,

Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus. I need to share a strategic word with you from the Book of Zechariah that the Lord has given to me to shed light on current events and on the times that will soon follow. Around two thousand years ago, our Lord Jesus taught his listeners about interpreting the signs of the times so that they could understand the present moment and what was to come (Matthew 16:2-3, 24:32-33). And hundreds of years before then, the sons of Issachar were commended for their understanding of the times and what God’s people ought to do (1 Chronicles 12:32). Today too, we need to understand what is taking place so that we can respond and prepare well for what God is about to do in the world and through His Church.

The Mountains of Bronze

In Zechariah 6:1-4, the prophet Zechariah, in the company of an angel, sees a vision. He records:

“Then I turned and raised my eyes and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming from between two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze. With the first chariot were red horses, with the second chariot black horses, with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot dappled horses—strong steeds. Then I answered and said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”

Zechariah sees this stunning vision and asks for understanding from Heaven. When I was given this Scripture in my time of prayer a short while ago, I asked the Lord for understanding. As I sat with Him and I prayed, he provided a clear understanding to me of what this word means for us today as a global Body.
