Daily Reading: Zechariah 8-14

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.

This happened Matthew 21:5!

Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

Not only did Zechariah prophecy that Branch (Jesus the Messiah) would make a triumphal entry into Jerusalem, he also prophesied:

  • That He would be the Prince of Peace, vs. 9:10

  • That He would be betrayed for thirty pieces of silver and that the silver would be cast down in the house of God and used to purchase a potter’s field, vs. 11:12-13

  • That He would be crucified, vs. 12:10

  • That He would be wounded by His friends, vs. 13:6

  • That He would be the Shepherd smitten and His sheep would be scattered, vs. 13:7

  • That He would one day come in Revelation Glory, chapter 14

Now, put your socks back on because we have just one more day of devotions for the Old Testament. It’s about to get good…It’s already good, but it’s going to get gooder!

Until tomorrow, live for Christ today.
