Once upon a time in the land of Judah, there was a prophet named Zechariah. God spoke to him in visions, revealing His plans for His people. In the first vision, Zechariah saw a man riding on a red horse, symbolizing victory and war. The angel explained that this was the Lord's victory over all enemies.

Next, Zechariah saw a vision of Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord. The Angel wore filthy clothes, representing the sins of the people. But when Joshua and his companions purified themselves, the Angel clothed them in clean garments, symbolizing God's forgiveness and restoration.

In another vision, Zechariah saw a potter making clay pots on a wheel. The Lord spoke to him, asking if it was impossible for Him to make the people of Judah into a nation again? He promised to gather them from all corners of the earth and bring them back to their land.

Zechariah then saw a vision of a flying scroll, with God's law written on it. The scroll would go out and devour everything that was not right in the land. It was a reminder that God's word is powerful and will always prevail.

In another vision, Zechariah saw a man with a measuring line, measuring the city of Jerusalem and its walls. The Angel explained that the city would be rebuilt and its people would live peacefully within its walls once again.

Finally, Zechariah saw a vision of four chariots coming from different directions. Each chariot represented an aspect of God's work in the world: peace, salvation, sacrifice, and the spirit of truth. The visions reminded the people that God was with them, working to restore and protect His people.
