Ride The Donkey

Ride The Donkey…

The writings of the ancient rabbis of Judaism say an amazing thing. There is not one Messiah, but two! How did this happen?

The rabbis were confused. They read in Zechariah 9:9 that Jesus would come on a donkey riding into Jerusalem, humble and with salvation – Palm Sunday. And yet, Daniel 7 says Jesus will come on the clouds of Heaven in glory.

Other prophets said Jesus would die for our sins – and yet reign forever. The rabbis couldn’t deal with it so they came up with two Jesus’s.

The first Jesus, son of Joseph, would come humbly on a donkey and die for our sins. The second Jesus, son of David, would come on the clouds of heaven and reign forever.

But the Bible speaks of only one Messiah. The only answer – one Jesus, two comings. The only one in history to fulfill this is Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth.

If you follow Jesus, you must follow His example – first the donkey, then the clouds. Walk in humility as God’s servant and you will be lifted up in glory – Jesus has two comings – and so will you!

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. Daniel 7:13

Seek to live this day as Jesus did, coming humbly to glorify God and to bless and save others.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
