Today we explored the third vision in the series of Face2Face i.e. the vision of Joshua the High Priest in the book of Zechariah. This passage was a courtroom scene where Satan accused Joshua the High Priest before the Lord. Joshua was helpless as Satan’s accusation was true. However, the focus in this passage was on the work of the Lord Jesus Christ who clothed him with righteousness and made him clean to stand before the Lord. Join us today as we explore this passage together and praise the Son of God for the work He’s done for us all.
Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan[a] standing at his right side to accuse him. The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?”
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.”
Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.”
Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.
The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.”Zechariah 3:1-7 (NIV)
