THE PROPHETIC PROMISE  - THE  KING OF PEACE COMES RIDING A DONKEY 

Zechariah 9:9-12 (quoted in Matthew 21:5; John 12:15)

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.

VERSE 9 - KING OF PEACE - Zechariah is delivering the prophecy of the King coming to Jerusalem, with the background of Jesus riding on an ass entering into Jerusalem and people spreading their clothes before him, waving palm branches.

"Ass" (KJV; NRSV: "donkey") and "colt": point to one animal in the 'style of Hebrew parallelism' (cf. Genesis 49:11; John 12:14–15), indicating 'peaceful intensions', in contrast to "horse" (or "war-horse") in verse 10.[8]

New Testament authors see this verse as a prophecy to Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday as quoted in Matthew 21:5; John 12:15).[22]

 

 

YOUR KING IS: 

Coming to you ON A DONKEY - indicating 'peaceful intensions', in contrast to "horse" (or "war-horse") in verse 10

Righteous and having Salvation is he

Humble King

 

YOUR KING WILL:

Cut off the chariot from Ephraim 

The war horse from Jerusalem 

The battle bow shall be cut off  

He shall speak peace to the nations  

Rule shall be from sea to sea

 

YOUR KING:

Because of the blood of my covenant

I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit

Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope

Declares that He will restore to you double
