A Word from the Lord.

“This is the word of the Lord Zerubbabel: ‘not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of Grace, grace to it!’” Zechariah 4:6, 7 NKJV. Zechariah-4_6-
Might, chayil, Strong’s #2428. Strength, power, force, might (especially an army); valor, substance, wealth. Its basic meaning is force, especially military strength. It may refer to the power of accumulated goods, that is, “wealth,” as in Deut 8:17.
In some instances chayil is translated “valor,” especially when describing a military man (Judg. 3:29). In the present reference, God informs the rebuilder of the temple that the task would not be accomplished through the force of an army (chayil) nor through the muscular power or physical stamina of the workman; rather, it would be accomplished by the empowering of the Holy Spirit of God.
When the temple is completed, all will acknowledge its beauty and realize it is not the result of human achievements, but rather, of God’s grace and more grace.
