SUMMARY: In Zechariah 9:9-10, the prophet speaks of a coming Messiah who will bring salvation and peace to the people of Israel. The Messiah is described as just, humble, and riding on a donkey. The passage calls for rejoicing and celebrating despite the suffering and oppression in the land. Christians are called to imitate the qualities of the Messiah, including justice, salvation, and humility. The weapons of the Messiah are those of light, love, and mercy, and Christians are called to use these weapons in their battles. The passage reminds us that God always has a good plan for our lives and that we should trust in Him even in the midst of tribulation.

We’re going to read from the book of Zechariah, chapter 9, verse 9. Zechariah is known as a minor prophet because his writings are small and yet they have such a powerful teaching for us. God put this passage in my heart today to share with you, particularly verse 9 although we’ll go on to verse 10 as well.

“Rejoice greatly oh daughter of Zion! Shout daughter of Jerusalem! See your king comes to you righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariot from Ephraim, and the woe horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken, he will proclaim peace to the nations, his rule will extend from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.”
