Zechariah 3


The fifth vision discloses:

(1) The change from self-righteousness to the righteousness of God (See Scofield "Romans 3:21") of which Paul's experience, Philippians 3:1-9 is the illustration, as it is also the foreshadowing of the conversion of Israel.

(2) In type, the preparation of Israel for receiving Jehovah's "BRANCH" (See Scofield "Isaiah 4:2") . The refusal of the Jews to abandon self-righteousness for the righteousness of God blinded them to the presence of the BRANCH in their midst at His first advent Romans 10:1-4; 11:7,8 Cf. Zechariah 6:12-15 which speaks of the manifestation of the BRANCH in glory (v. 13) as the Priest-King, when Israel will receive Him. See Scofield "Hebrews 5:6".

Zechariah 3:10 marks the time of fulfilment as in the future kingdom. It speaks of a security which Israel has never known since the captivity, nor will know till the kingdom comes. (Cf. Isaiah 11:1-9).
