Zechariah 9:1-17; Revelation 17:1-18; Psalm 145:1-21; Proverbs 30:32

What Christmas started, Easter completed! Zechariah gave a prophetic word of a time when God’s people would have their hope restored and their lives put back together.

“Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9)

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, as He approached the cross, this Scripture is used to describe His triumphal entry on what we call Palm Sunday. God always knew the cross was a part of the process to complete what God started on Christmas Day.

We are living in that time right now! You and I can rejoice because God has promised as His blood-bought children that we can break free of all the chains that bind us and dungeons that have imprisoned us. God will give us double blessing for each trouble we’ve experienced.

Are you in faith for this? You should be. Every time trouble arises, you should know that double blessings are yours. This is a promise from God’s Word. If you have unclaimed gifts, set your heart that starting today, every trouble you’ve experienced will be paid back double with blessings!!
