We must understand and remember these prophecies to help us recognize the true Messiah. For antichirsts are coming and have been revealed all through history.
On this day, the 10th of the head of the months, Abib, Y’shua fulfilled three prophecies.
Matthew 18 | 16
‘Every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’
Barukt haba b’shem Adonai
(Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord)
The Witness For The King
In Zechariah 9|9, prophecy speaks of a future king, as Shlomoh did, presenting himself to Jerusalem while riding on a humble colt (young) of a donkey. 1
Kings 1|33 mentions Solomon riding a donkey on the day he was recognized as the new king of Israel. The old king Dawid agreed to the campaign of his woman, Bethshiva, in coronating their son, Schlomoh (Solomon), as the heir.
And the king said to them, “Take with you the servants of your lord and have Solomon my son ride on my own mule, and bring him down to Gihon.– 1 Kings 1|33
In the year 30 A.D, Y’shua turned 33. And prophetically He entered the same city riding as the young king on a colt. A mule is the offspring of a donkey and a horse. A colt is a young un-castrated male horse or donkey. A foal is a young horse or related animal.
“Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your king is coming to you,
humble, and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt,[a the foal of a beast of burden.’”
This foreshadowed the Lord come as the prophesied King of Jerusalam, that happened about 500 years after the Word of YH spoke to Zechariah.
As explained in Luke 19|35-37, Y’shua rode into Jerusalem on a colt followed by his momma donkey and presented Himself as the Messiah, the King.
In Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19, Y’shua fulfills it. He descends from the Mount of Olives towards Jerusalem, and the crowds from Galilee lay their clothes on the ground to welcome Him as He triumphantly enters Jerusalem.
Matthew 21 included the detail regarding the mother of the colt.
7 They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. 8 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
The Witness Of The Lamb
Luke 19 On this day, the 10th of Abib, Y’shua went to satisfy also the prophecy of Exodus 12.
3Tell the whole congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month, each man must select a lamb for his family, one per household. 4If the household is too small for a whole lamb, they are to share with the nearest neighbor, based on the number of people, and apportion the lamb accordingly.
Y’shua was displayed as the Lamb of Passover sitting on a wild animal, tamed by the Prince of Peace, to the House of His brothers, the House of Israel. He was displayed in preparation of His death as having not one blemish. He was perfect!
28 And when he had said these things, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, He sent two of the disciples, 30 saying,
“Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’”
32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as He rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As He was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
The shout of peace is prophetically speaking to the righteousness that the death of Y’shua 4 days later, which will bring true peace to mankind. When one’s relationship with the Creator is reconciled through a sacrifice of blood, this is the everlasting peace that we may obtain through the broker of peace, Y’shua and Y’shua only.
This shout of piece turns out to be the prophetic fulfillment of the heralding of the angels upon His birth. On that night, the shepherds in the field heard that witness for the first time. They were told by the angels that a King is born. In 30 A.D., this King was marching into Jerusalem.
10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
The Witness Of The Second Advent
This witness shall rule out many false christs and modern day charlatans who claim to be the Anointed One, the Christ.
|For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive|
Matthew 23 | 39
37“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! 38See, your house is left to you desolate. 39For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’”
On that day upon the entry of their true King, they shouted,
‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’
Yet, Y’shua hinted that the people of Jerusalem shall not see Him again until once again, the people who shall live in Jerusalem receive Him as the One. They will be enslaved by the coming antichrist in the last seven years before the Second Coming. The antichrist represents the kingdom before the final kingdom, where Y’shua once again shall rule the earth as King. The people of Jerusalem shall cry for deliverance and cry for their Moshiach to come save her. Then they will realize that Y’shua is not just the Nazarene, but indeed, He is their King of kings.
