“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you: He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey” (Zech. 9:9)
Lowly – it is the same Hebrew word behind the English translation of “poor” in Zechariah 7:10.
A King who came poor. Needy. Afflicted.
This is unexpected. A scandalous event. The kind of stuff that makes for a radical revolution.
He is not in a big, black SUV. He is not even driving a Ford. You could be looking in all the wrong spots. He is on a donkey. During this election season, don’t miss Him.
There is joy among His followers. The shout of a King is among them.
