Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion Shout,Daughter Jerusalem!See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey on a colt, the foal of a donkey
Here the prophet is prophesying and saying to ‘ Rejoice always’ as the king is coming to you .How is he coming? He is coming mounted on a donkey. In those days kings used to travel on donkeys and soldiers on horses.This prophecy was completely fulfilled on the last entry of Jesus to Jerusalem as a king before crucifixion. When all was laying their cloaks on the road and shouting,’Hosanna ‘ to the son of David. Jesus was born as a king,lived as a king,he came to Jerusalem as a king also on the cross Pilate ordered to put a sign board on the cross of Jesus as King of Jews.
49.King of Jews
‘After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea,during the time of King Herod,Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
On the cross where Jesus was crucified Pilate instructed to put an inscription saying, ‘King of Jews. ‘
50.King of Kings
Jesus was not just a king but he was the King of Kings.
1 Timothy 6:15
‘For at just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.”
Many places in the book of Revelation, the title King of kings is written.He is the King of all kings who ruled this earth and because of his kingship we also are kings with spiritual implication. Jesus never wore a royal attire, a crown or lived in a royal palace but he made it clear his kingdom is a Spiritual heavenly kingdom. All kings came, ruled and vanished.The kingship of Jesus never ends and his kingdom never ends.
51. Lamb of God
‘The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.’
During John the Baptist’s ministry he was straightening the way for Jesus by spiritually preparing all people in their hearts to come in to repentance and accept the Lord Jesus. John the Baptist declared ‘Behold the lamb of God’ that takes away the sins of the world.This title is quoted many times both in new and old testament.
‘All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life,the Lamb who was slain from the creation
of the world.’
Very clearly Jesus became the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world .
The first Adam was the first man created and he became the very first living being. The last Adam is Lord Jesus he became the first life giving Spirit. Through the first Adam death entered the world and through Jesus new life began.This is why Jesus says , ‘ I am the life. The earthly man came first but the last man is a Spiritual man, he is a heavenly man. He became the final word, final and the perfect example .
1 Corinthians 15:45-49
So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven.And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.’
‘Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father except through me.’
This is a famous verse of the Bible.When Jesus says he is the life, all life proceeds from him and he is the giver of life.
55.Light of the world
‘When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’
Jesus very boldly is declaring that he is the light of the world and if you follow him there will be no darkness but instead you will receive the light of life. Even in daylight many people walk in darkness .When you are in pitch darkness you are totally unaware of the surroundings, the directions, where to go. In other words you are completely lost.
Jesus says he is the light of the world, the light of life, you will know the direction , the destination and your destiny through him.
