My name is Zechariah. I am a prophet, which means God trusts me to give His message to His people.

The Almighty has given me this message to share with His people.

I'll share with you the portions that talk about the coming Messiah.

The Lord has promised a coming Messiah for a time. I am excited, but don't know that He will come in my lifetime or not. Although there are words from the Lord that tell of the coming Messiah, I'm not sure when.

The Almighty said, "See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

"He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.

"I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit....even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.

"Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime. It is the Lord who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone. The idols speak deceit, diviners see visions that lie. They tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain. The people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd.

"From Judah will come the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every rule. Together they will be like mighty men trampling the muddy streets in battle. Because the Lord is with them, they will fight and overthrow.

"I will strengthen the house of Judah. I will restore them because I have compassion on them.
