While sleeping last night I heard the voice of what sounded like a town crier announcing, “The King is coming!” “The King is coming!” Over and over again last night I heard this announcement in my spirit. It was not loud, obnoxious or annoying, it was an announcement, I knew it was an announcement. Upon awaking this morning, I wanted to find out where the scripture was for this announcement and I found it in two places, Zecharaiah 9 and Mark 11. Mark 11 is the fulfillment of the prophecy spoken in Zechariah 9, and it has to do with Passover week, of which we are still in on the Hebrew calendar. Passover or the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a seven day feast, not just a one day like we celebrate Good Friday or Easter.
The Lord knows His calendar, so for Him to announce to me “The King is coming!”, during this week, the week of Passover, is not coincidental, it is deliberate. The question I asked was, what is He coming to do? As I read all of Zechariah 9 and Mark 11, it became clear, “The King is coming!”, to save us from our oppressors. Zechariah 9 is about God saving Israel from Tyre and Sidon, the financial robbers of the nation of Israel and the world. Zechariah 9:3-4 “For Tyre built herself a fortress And piled up silver like dust, And gold like the mire of the streets. Behold, the Lord will dispossess her And cast her wealth into the sea; And she will be consumed with fire.” We are about to experience a national jubilee in the nations. But there is more.
Zechariah 9:8-9 says, “I will camp around My house because of an army, Because of him who passes by and returns; And no oppressor will pass over them anymore, For now I have seen with My eyes. 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.” We are about to be delivered from oppressors, “The King is coming!” Read all of Zechariah 9, for there is still more, He is going to restore double as well. Rejoice my friends, “The King is coming!”
