Zechariah was a prophet in the Old testament. If anyone would have been familiar with God’s Law, it would have been this guy. He grew up as a P.K. (priest’s kid), with several generations of religious leaders in his family tree. Yet as he was being shown the word of the Lord, he realizes how special it is, and wants to make sure he fully grasps it. So he fires away with the questions:
- What are these?
- What are these coming to do?
- Where are you going?
- What is it?
- Where are they taking it?
The Word of God is living, active, and powerful. I should inquiry of it: what does this mean?
The same Holy Spirit that inspired the biblical writers is the same Holy Spirit Who will illuminate your mind to understand it.
All you have to do is ask!
