Part of the book of the prophet Zechariah tells of visions the LORD shows him. One of the visions in chapter 5 is of a flying scroll. This scroll is huge and details a curse that the LORD pronounces on sinners for their various sins.
Zechariah 5: 3-4 Then He (the LORD) said to me: “This is the curse which is to go forth over the whole earth; in accordance with it shall every thief be swept away, and in accordance with it shall every perjurer be expelled from here. I will send it forth (the flying scroll), says the LORD of hosts, and it shall come into the house of the thief, or into the house of him who perjures himself with My Name; it shall lodge within his house, consuming it, timber and stones.”
Zechariah 10:12 I will strengthen them in the LORD, and they shall walk in His Name, says the LORD.
Chapter 13 of Zechariah talks of God cleansing the people of idolatry and false prophets. Verse 9 is particularly endearing of the filial love we have for the Heavenly Father.
Zechariah 13:3, 9
verse 3: If a man still (false) prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the Name of the LORD.”
verse 9: I will bring one third through fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and I will test them as gold is tested. They shall call upon My Name, and I will hear them. I will say, “They are My people,” and they shall say, “The LORD is my God.”
