Day 32 – Man (Angel) with Measuring Line
Wall of Fire & Glory in your Midst!
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. - Colossians 1:16 -17
Zechariah 2 is our passage today; the man with the measuring line. The angels declare that God will be a wall of fire around her (Jerusalem - His people) and the glory in her midst. As stated on Monday, these visions are 2-fold, they specially speak to the exiles / Israel but they also are speaking about the Church age.
It’s important to remember that the Children of Israel had come out of 70 years of captivity. Jerusalem had few people but the Lord, using angels, was prophesying and calling forth His people back to their homeland.
God is a wall of fire around us and the glory in our midst!
Here we see angels partnering together - an angel network. Angels work together they communicate with one another.
Zec. 2: 1-5 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. So I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.” And there was the angel who talked with me, going out; and another angel was coming out to meet him, who said to him, “Run, speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. For I,’ says the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’ “
God’s Glory and Protection Promised
The Lord speaks, prophesies, saying whoever touches My people I will shake My hand against them and their enemy will become spoil for them.
Zec. 2:8-9 For thus says the LORD of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. “For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me.”
The Promise of the Presence of the LORD
In that Day…It’s After Christ…So It’s Our Day!
Zec. 2:10-13 “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says the LORD. “Many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. “And the LORD will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem. Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!”
Word of the Lord
As I declared to Zechariah, so, I say to you, I am a wall of fire around you - your enemies are My enemies says the Lord. I wall you about with the fire of My Spirit and the angelic host. We are fighting for you! Not only am I a wall of fire but I’m the glory (weight, honour, abundance) in the midst of you. My people are the apple of My eye and those who mess with you, mess with Me says the Spirit. I will shake My hand against them and they will become spoil for you. So rejoice and sing for I am coming to dwell in your midst. Go forth, bring
the nations (people) to Me as they are My inheritance - you are in Me so the nations are your inheritance too! Call them forth! Partner with the Spirit and with the angelic host - NOW is the TIME for My Glory to manifest in the earth through you!
Open our eyes, Lord!
Lighten thou mine eyes; and I shall behold the marvels of thy law. (Open thou my eyes; and I shall see the marvels, or the wonders, that come forth from thy Law.) - Psalms 119:18 (WYC)
