No One Lives Forever
all that harm and loss
Zechariah 1:5 (KJV)
Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, do they live for ever?
The prophet began by challenging them not to be like their fathers. Why? Because their fathers had not listened to the prophets. The trouble Judah had endured, the captivity in Babylon, the destruction of the magnificent temple Solomon had constructed, the loss of the treasures of the temple, namely the ark, all that harm and loss were the direct result of their fathers’ rejection of the prophets.
