Look Around

In the days of the Prophet Zechariah about 520 BC, Jerusalem enjoyed a season of peace and prosperity. Under Persian rule the Hebrews enjoyed the chance to live without fear and want. They could worship and obey God and not have to worry.
As often happens in times of peace and plenty people tend to relax in their observance of their faith. Its party time and we do not worry about tomorrow as everything is OK today. What usually happens under these conditions is that we let righteousness slide and we become corrupt as a society. That put us on a downward slide into the pit of depression. This has happened many times in the past and we fail to learn from history.
The prophet Zechariah tried to call the people to actions and repentance. Well that is the job of a prophet!
 Happy Yes
Look around and ask, “Where are we today?What


  1. If you listen to the media and look at some parts of the world, we are living in hell on earth as we speak.

  2. We have become a society that is afraid of speaking out loud about their faith. It is frowned upon to stand on a mountaintop and loudly proclaim, "Jesus is my savior. He is my love, and I shall devote the rest of my existence honoring him and being his hands and feet." To be proud nowadays could, unfortunately, bring a person harm.

    The world was a much better place when we all had a strong, unbreakable bond with our God. I refuse to bow down and hide my faith. I stand tall and proudly admit to loving Jesus Christ.

    It's time for us all to not feel shame or to hide behind barriers. It's time for all of us to stand proud.
