Save Now!

“Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey,’ ” (Zechariah 13:9). So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!” And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying “Who is this?” So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.” (Matthew 21:5-11)

Jesus, more than a prophet from Nazareth, has come into the week of His passion, were He is being prepared to fulfill the plan of God to bring salvation to the world. It is not what the people were expecting. Spreading one’s garments on the dusty road was an ancient act of homage paid to royalty. This suggests that they did recognize His claim to be King of the Jews. Hosanna – A Hebrew expression which translates “Save now!”  Taken from the Messianic Psalm 118:25.These were the shouted words of a crowd at Jesus at His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Days latter these same people were part of a larger audience who would shout, “crucify Him!” and reject Him because He did not provide military nor political deliverance for the Jewish people. God’s plan of deliverance was that their spiritual bondage to sin would be dealt with first, Thus the Good Shepherd became the Passover Lamb who takes away the sins of man. Blessed is He – This also a quote from Psalm 118:26, along with the messianic title “Son of David,” clearly indicated that the crowd was acknowledging Christ’s messianic claim. the date of this entry was Monday, 10 Nisan, A.D.30, exactly 483 years after the decree of Artaxerxes mentioned it in Daniel 9:24-26.

Beloved friend, We are entering another time of remembering God’s prophetic promise to Israel, to make an end of sin and it’s captives who are kept in bondage, by making reconciliation for iniquity and an actual covering for sin by the full atonement, the blood of His Son, the crucified Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29). Let this promise be for you, and your families too!

May the Lord bless your walk!
