In the Bible however, we find a king who rides on a donkey. The King of kings who is born in small town called Bethlehem and later on mocked as the King of Jew when He died on the cross. This King brought us salvation and ultimate peace to all nations including the nation which rejected him; the Jews.
He will conquer the enemy and break all the battle bows by conquering death and bringing new life to those who put their trust in Him. His weapon is not sword or armor but love for the lost world. He is a king who is willing to leave His Heavenly throne and come to save His own people though He was rejected as their king.
Do we accept our King and sing praises to Him for the peace He has given us through His death on the cross? Let us draw closer to Him. Do not let our lips praise Him today but curse Him tomorrow just because we could not comprehend His love for us. He has come in a donkey to bring us peace, even when He deserves an army of chariots and horses. He is the true King that deserves all the honor and praise for He has sacrificed His life for us so that our lives may be preserved and it will flow with abundance.
Praise the name of Jesus this Easter and all the days of your life. Let us make Jesus the King over our lives so that His love and peace will reign in our hearts.
Zechariah 9:10 - 11
I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses 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.
