Four Chariots and the Crown
Speakers: Mr Quek Tze-Ming / Ps Dev Menon

“Behold, those who go toward the north country have set my Spirit at rest in the north country.” (v. 8)
Symbolic Act: Crown and Temple (vv. 9-15)

“And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.” (v. 15)
Questions for Reflection & Discussion:
- Why are the chariots going to the north country? What are the implications of this for God’s people? Are you facing a situation today in which this teaching can be of particular comfort?
- Try to summarize the messages of the 8 night visions. How does Zech 1.14-16 help to link them?
- What are the roles of the Branch in this oracle? How does Jesus fulfil this oracle? What are the implications of this for us as Christians?
- How would you respond to someone who suggested that Christ does not appear to be reigning as King today? Is there evidence in the world around us that God is reigning?
