Dear Friends,

The verse above is from the Prophet Zechariah. He was a post exile prophet of the Old Testament, who may have been born in Babylon, but who's family returned to Israel for the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple. Chapter 3 of the book of Zechariah is worth reading in one sitting, it is not that long. It records the fourth vision of the prophet. He is given a vision of Joshua the High Priest, who served after the exiles returned to Judea (Haggai 1:1, Zechariah 3:1). The High Priest was the representative of the nation, and in this vision his filthy garments are removed and he is clothed with pure and clean vestments. The Lord's gracious act of clothing Joshua is not based on any works or words. Joshua says and does nothing. 

But then the charge comes from the Lord to Joshua. Zechariah 3:6–7 (NKJV) "Then the Angel of the Lord admonished Joshua, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘If you will walk in My ways, And if you will keep My command, Then you shall also judge My house, And likewise have charge of My courts; I will give you places to walk Among these who stand here."  The Lord says to Joshua, see what I have done, now serve me and walk in all my ways. 

After that in Zechariah 3:8 (NKJV), we read "Hear, O Joshua, the high priest, You and your companions who sit before you, For they are a wondrous sign; For behold, I am bringing forth My Servant the BRANCH.". This is a prophecy of the coming of Jesus, our great sinless High Priest. So in Chapter 3 of the book of Zechariah we have a very clear picture of the Gospel or good news, with the Lord's promise of forgiveness of sin and new life serving Jesus. No matter how fifthly we may feel, or what our past may have been.
