Jesus Is The Lamb

March 26 

The LORD’S Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, (PALM SUNDAY), occurred only days before His crucifixion and is recorded in Matthew 21:1 – 9, (also in John 12:12 – 16). This event was predicted by the prophet Zechariah in the 6th century B.C. Lets take a look at some of the features in Zechariah’s prophecies, and how they are fulfilled in Messiah Jesus.

Zechariah 9:9 — “Your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” — Fulfilled by Jesus during His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. (Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40; John 12:12-19)9:10 — “He shall speak peace to the nations; His dominion shall be ‘from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.’” — Jesus established the covenant of grace which is available for Jews and Gentiles alike; the church has expanded from sea to sea, and the gospel has been preached all over the world. (This verse is practically a quotation of Psalm 72:8, which is about the Lord’s Anointed King.)9:11 — ““As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.” — Through the sacrifice of Christ and the atonement provided through His blood, God has liberated those who were trapped in the pit of sin and death, separated from God.9:12 — “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.” — Jesus will compensate those persecuted and killed for their testimony of faith. He calls all those persecuted for the sake of the gospel to maintain their hope and faith in God, the ever-present refuge.9:14-16 — “Then the Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord God will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south. The Lord of hosts will defend them; They shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; They shall be filled with blood like basins, like the corners of the altar. The Lord their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land.”
— This part can be summed up in three words: HIS KINGDOM COMES!9:17 — “For how great is its goodness and how great its beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive, and new wine the young women.”— Bread and wine, the elements of the Lord’s Supper in the New Covenant which was established through Jesus blood give joy to God’s people, reminding them always that the price has been paid for their sins.Did you know there is one other time in the Bible that people wave palm branches and cheer Jesus? It’s in heaven….
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
(Revelation 7:9–10)
