In that day declares the Lord of hosts every one of you will invite his neighbor to come under his vine and under his fig tree.” (‭Zechariah‬ ‭3‬:‭10‬ ESV)

Zechariah chapter 3 is perhaps one of the most fascinating scenes revealed to mankind by the Holy Spirit in Scripture. We get to see deep into the heart of God as well as learn more about His interaction with Satan in regards to Gods servants.

Joshua bears the iniquity of the house of Israel. His garments are filthy. True leaders always bear the burden of the people they are called to represent. They identify with the sin of the people. If they dont they will become hard-hearted and self-righteous.

Satan is in the business of accusing. All he has to do is keep us at a place of shame guilt and lack of confidence. We cant remove the filthy garments on our own. Satan tries to warp our identity and cause us to identify with sin and failure rather than who we truly are in Christ.

God is in the business of restoring His people. He commands the filthy garments removed. If we dont relate properly to Gods authority we risk missing His blessing. Too many cant handle God commanding His blessing they can only relate to God suggesting his blessing. Yes God commands His blessings! His goodness doesnt come to us packaged as some sugar coated pop-psychology sloppy agape touchy-feely goosebumpy thing. He commands His blessings. Which is why we ought to be positioned right and our hearts have to be right with Him. Defiance against Him wont get us anywhere. Surrender and receive His commanded blessing!

On that day the day of restoration as the people of God become restored individually they end up opening up their homes and community is restored too.
