We break from our Sunday morning sermon series on Exodus to ponder the fulfillment of what the prophet Zechariah foretold: “Look! Your King is coming.”
Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the applause of the crowds is the starting pistol for what we have come to call Holy Week. The “Hosannas!” of the crowds are soon followed by the cries of “Crucify Him!” only days later.
“Your King is coming!” is the theme of the entire Old Testament starting with the promise given to Adam and Eve of a Savior who would crush the serpent’s head.
It is also the theme of the New Testament all the way to the last page where Jesus says: “Behold, I am coming quickly!”
Our King is always the One Coming – wrapped in the swaddling clothes of the ancient prophecies, cradled in the womb of a virgin, coming to die for those who despised Him, coming back from the grave in triumph, coming into our hearts with His gospel, and promising to come one last time to take us home.
