MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 25th December 2020 Devotional
The ministry of Jesus Christ on the earth is replete with the fulfilment of prophecies. His birth and death, resurrection and second coming, among others, are all in fulfilment of what the prophets had foretold about Him.
In our passage, Christ’s entry into Jerusalem was the last before going to Calvary. His popularity could not bring any doubt in the mind of the owner of the colt He wanted to ride to Jerusalem.
As He entered the city, people ran out to meet Him spreading their clothes, leaves and branches of trees on the wayside in His honour. This was the fulfilment of Zechariah 9:9, which says, “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.”
The choice of the time Christ entered into Jerusalem was indeed perfect. It was for the people to know that He was the real Messiah. They held wrong view of His messiahship. They even thought He had become the leader, who would liberate them from the Roman Empire.
Christ coming is not only for a set of religious people or nations, but also for the whole world. He came to liberate the whole world from the imperial rule of Satan. This shall be fulfilled during His millennial reign.
Despite this ageless truth, several millions of people still hold erroneous belief about the Personality of Jesus Christ. If your purpose of coming to Christ is just for earthly gains, then you have made a great mistake. You must “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
Jesus came to fulfil all the prophecies. At the centre of His prophecies is salvation. It is God’s free gift to all men through Christ our Lord. It can be attained by confessing and forsaking of sins, and receiving Christ as personal Saviour.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t get the purpose of Christ’s coming wrong.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Revelation 4-6
