“I looked up again and saw a flying scroll. “What do you see? ” he asked me. “I see a flying scroll,” I replied, “30 feet long and 15 feet wide.” Then he said to me, “This is the curse that is going out over the whole land, for every thief will be removed according to what is written on one side, and everyone who swears falsely will be removed according to what is written on the other side. I will send it out,” — this is the declaration of the Lord of Hosts — “and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It will stay inside his house and destroy it along with its timbers and stones.””
Zechariah 5:1-4 HCSB
I read this and think that theft and lying are two sides of the same coin, or scroll… what I believe the Lord is telling me is that either of these sins will come in and wreak havoc on us, right down to our foundations. Ill gotten gain, either through theft or bearing a false witness only results in ruin.
