Chariots and crowns

Zechariah 6

  • Four chariots with differently colored horses (v. 1-8)
  • Gold and silver crowns for men as symbols of the crowning work of the Lord Jesus in building the house/kingdom of God (v. 9-15)

Meditation Points:

  1. Color, not mere black and white. This message has no meaning to the person unable to see or distinguish colors. The scriptures have no meaning to the person who is spiritually blind.
  2. Symbolic actions. The crowning of the high priest must point us to Christ the Great High Priest. Is there any activity in life which should not point us to Christ?
