December 26 – Daily Notes – Amanda

It’s so neat when we know things that happened in the Bible and then we read more obscure parts that explain them. Did you know that Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey was prophesied into today’s Zechariah reading? It was! Reading Scripture consistently brings so much into the light.

Zechariah 9:1-17:

  • 1-8 – The prophecy announces judgment to come down on a variety of Israel’s enemies.
  • 9-13 – This prophecy is fulfilled by Jesus when he rides into Jerusalem on a donkey on Palm Sunday.

Revelation 17:1-18:

  • 8 – Note that when talking about God we say, “Who was, and is, and is to come”, but here, when talking about the beast, it is described as “who was and is not and is to come.”
  • 14 – Even though the beast is powerful and will gain power as the kings give it to him, Jesus will still conquer.

Psalm 145:1-21:

  • 10-21 – There are many references throughout Scripture about not just humanity, but all creatures and natural things giving praise to God. Obviously, as humans, we have the greatest ability to do so, so let’s use that ability for all it’s worth.

Proverbs 30:32:

  • A good lesson for us all. If what you’re saying isn’t of great value, stop talking.
