Zechariah 5:

Zechariah saw a flying scroll (book) 30 feet long and 15 feet wide.  In the book were curses against thieves (those who stole from others to make gain) and those who swore falsely in God's name (lied against another to make gain).  The book will enter their houses and destroy them completely.  The angel then showed Zechariah the basket with a woman in it.  The basket was the iniquity and sins of the people in the land and the women was their wickedness.  Then two women with wings came and lifted the basket between heaven and earth.  The angel then told Zechariah that they were taking it to Babylon to build a house for it. So Babylon in Iraq, where the tower of Babel was originally build, will the resident of all our sins and wickedness.

Zechariah 6:

Four chariots came out from two bronze mountains.  The first chariots had red horses, the second black, the third white, and the fourth different colors (dappled).  The angel explained that these where the four spirits of heaven that left the presence of God for the whole worldThe black horses will head north, the white west, and the dappled south (I guess the red horses went east)It appears that God was dividing the horses according to the races of the region.  White Europeans are called the west, Black Africans are the center of the world and north, the red army of Asia is east, and mixed Hispanics and Caribbean (of Indians, Africans, Europeans and Asians) are southIt was the Black horses going north that gave God's spirit rest.  God asked Zachariah to take gold and silver from the 3 exiles that returned from Babylon and used it to make a crown for the high priest.  This high priest will be called the Branch to branch out to build God's temple and sit on the throne in majesty

Zechariah 7:

People came to the priest to inquire if they were to fast and mourn, but God sent Zechariah to ask all the people if their fasting and mourning was actually for God in the past 70 years of exile.  God made it clear that he was only interested in true justice, mercy, compassion, no oppression of the widows, fatherless, and foreigners, as well as not to think evil of each other. The people refused to listen and that is why God dealt with them by sending them into exile.
