Not By Might, Nor By Power, But By My Spirit

Zec 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. (KJV)

The temple of God, built by Zerubbabel, was prophecised to be completed without further interruption of violence or power from above but by the Spirit of God. In the New Testament parallel the "mystery of God" and His temple is completed with a "pillar in the temple", as promised to the angel (least) in Philadelphia.

Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth. (KJV)

Once that pillar is set up (as with the plummet in the hand of a figurative Zerubbabel, i.e. Christ) and the least's circuit completed,. the two witnesses are empowered in ministry to call God's faithful elect out of the "Church" to be nourished for a "time, times and a half" in the spiritual wilderness.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (KJV)

The temple is finished with those precious remaining few taken from the vile (the worldly beasts), and the least provides a "baseline" of conviction over his spiritual "betters", to convict all by putting the believer to the left hand of God to convict them to repent and to separate themselves from the corporate "Church" of the scarlet beast.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (KJV)

It is not by threat (might), or of legal interruption in the courts (power) that the scartlet beast will be overcome, but only by the communication of conviction by the Spirit of God that "sparks the gap" between fellowships as the "least" of each fellowship exits and their "betters" are to follow suit.

Jer 49:20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them. (KJV)

As fellowships incorporate then the conviction by the Spirit of God will do likewise.

Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. (KJV)
