MR No. 406—Theology of Zechariah

I am instructed to make inquiry of the leading men in our cause, Are you carrying forward the work committed to your hands in all lines as the Lord would have you? Are there not many branches of the work that will testify that some are not carrying forward the work as the Lord would have them? 6MR 375.1

“The word of the Lord came unto Zechariah, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and show mercy and compassions every man to his brother: and oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.” Zechariah 7:8-10. 6MR 375.2

A strange spirit has been coming in among our people; but now there is to be an awakening. There is to be true, sincere missionary work done for the Jews. A little is being done, but it is nothing compared with what might be done.—Letter 42, 1912, p. 1. (To “Dear Brethren,” November 6, 1911.) 6MR 375.3
