Zechariah 2:5  ” ‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’ ”

The Scene: A night scene; a field of tall grass being burned off purposely so new growth will come, replacing the previous season’s  grasses.

Each year the tall grasses of the prairie are purposely set ablaze by the ranchers and farmers in the area. This may seem a harsh treatment at the time and will look ugly, for a short period. But the burning is necessary to preserve the life of the prairie plants.

The day of the Lord is coming! The Holy Spirit uses this “burning of the grasses” scene to give us hope. All people are going through a season. A new season is coming–the season of the Lord.  Before this new season can come a time of trouble (the burning process) which is painful and ugly must occur. A better time and new season will come. We have God’s promises.

2 Peter 3:10, 13 “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.”

Revelation 21:4-5 ” He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’ ”
