Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?” (Zechariah 4: 4)

During the period when Zechariah saw his vision, the children of Israel were already in captivity. Notice that in Ezra 1, Cyrus king of Persia proclaimed that God had mandated him to build a temple in Jerusalem. Notice also that the temple which was destroyed, was destroyed by the same Babylonian empire which Cyrus represented. So the same people who destroyed the temple were divinely mandated to help and rebuild it.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the same people who worked against you in time past will work for your elevation. The same people who disqualified you will qualify you. The same people who said no in time past will say yes. The same people who turned their backs against you in time past, will come begging you to work in your favour. The same people who sabotaged you will become messengers of your new season and next level.

God will use the same people who worked against you in the past to work for your good. God will open new doors and gates for you through the same people who locked major doors and gates against you in time past. God will instruct the same people who caused you pain and tears in time past, to bring you joy. God will instruct the people who caused you to suffer loss in time past, to become harbingers of much gain and increase.

Cyrus did not know God, he had no relationship with God, but God used him to fulfill a divine purpose in the lives of His people. Hear me as I hear the Lord: God is about to use the heathen to fulfill His divine will and purpose for you. God is about to use even your haters to work for your own good. For your sake, God will speak to men that will work in your favour. God will thunder in the ears of those who will ensure that the temple is built.

Welcome to that new season where heaven will mandate men to fulfill heaven’s purpose for your life. Welcome to that season where the heathen will become messengers for your new season.


Those who worked against me in time past will work in my favour, in Jesus’ name!
