The King – the Messiah – the Christ

As foretold by the Prophet to Israel…behold, thy King cometh unto thee

Zechariah 9:9…Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass

Luke 19:38…Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest

Much to be said in the above verse that Luke recorded about Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on a donkey. The main point? Luke recognized Jesus as the Messiah and King of Israel. So did a few of the people in Israel!

Traditional Palm Sunday was derived from this event of Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey… but the point was, “Christ was the promised Messiah and King of Israel”.  Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on a donkey was the fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy! The earthly King had come! Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord. The Kingdom was offered. The King had come. The King entered the city as promised…but the nation of Israel as a whole rejected their promised Messiah.

Jesus wept over the city and stated according to Luke…

Luke 19: 41-44…when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Israel as a whole didn’t recognize the King – the Messiah – the Christ. Israel was backslidden. Israel was not keeping the Torah or obeying the Law of God. Their hearts were unholy and as a whole they were unable to recognize the King – the Messiah – the Christ. They rejected the Christ.

John 1:11…He came unto his own, and his own received him not

The King came but the earthly Kingdom was not restored! The earthly King went to the cross only to become a heavenly King. Thy promised Kingdom will come when the Heavenly King comes a second time. At that visitation He will have all His saints with Him. This writer will be there.

1 Thessalonians 3:13… To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord.
