July 9, 2021 – Zechariah 5

Two more visions for Zechariah, one being a vision of a flying scroll. On both sides, the scroll contained judgments against those who steal and swear falsely by the Lord's name. And then, the vision of the woman in a basket. The woman's name was “Wickedness,” a picture of the people’s iniquity in all the land. Two other women came, who would remove the basket and the woman to the land of Shinar, i.e., Babylon, thus taking the wickedness, likely idolatry, out of the land so that it would not return. The Lord is always intent on removing sin and transgression from his people. And graciously he does so.


Far as east from west is distant

He hath put away our sin;

Like the pity of a Father

Hath the Lord's compassion been,

Well be knows our frame, rememb'ring

We are dust, our days like grass;

Man is like the flower blooming,

Till the hot winds o'er it pass.


Then 'tis gone, and is remembered

By its former place no more;

But on them that fear Jehovah

Rests his mercy evermore.

As it was without beginning,

So it lasts without an end;

To their children's children ever,

Shall his righteousness extend. –From Psalm 103; Sung to the tune “Easter Song” (Mozart)

We don’t always get to do what we want to do even when we think an action will be good and moral.  Consider David:  “Now when David lived in his house, David said to Nathan the prophet, ‘Behold, I dwe
