A Promise Fulfilled
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey
. Zechariah 9:9

The Lord Can Use Your Possessions To Fulfill His Promises
Matthew 21:1-3 Approaching Jerusalem they came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them, and bring them to Me. If anyone says something to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”

The Leadership of God Is Based In Humility
Matthew 21:4-5 Now this took place so that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’

Isaiah 57:15 This is what the High and Lofty One says– He Who lives forever, Whose name is Holy: “I live in a High and Holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite…

66:2b This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at MY WORD.

Luke 22:24-27 A dispute arose among the disciples as to which of them was considered to be greatest. Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over people; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

When Disciples Obey His Word It Brings Glory to The Lord
Matthew 21:6-8 The disciples went & did just as Jesus had directed them, & brought the donkey & the colt, & laid on them their garments, on which He sat. The multitude spread their garments in the road, & others were cutting branches from the trees, & spreading them in the road.

The multitudes were saying, This is the Prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.

Recognize His Visitation; It’s Today!
Luke 19:41-44 When He approached the city He wept over it, saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side, and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”

The House of God Is A House of Prayer!
Matthew 21:12-13 Jesus entered the temple and cast out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a robbers’ den.”
