“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. Zechariah 12:10
If there is any doubt on whether Jesus (Yeshua) fulfilled the Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament, look no further than the book of Zechariah. Not only did Zechariah clearly prophecy about Jesus riding into Jerusalem, but he prophesied he would be pierced or crucified and mourned as the only begotten Son
Many people might wonder why, the Son of God, would have to be crucified on a Roman Cross left to die. What they don’t know what this was Gods redemption plan for humanity. Jesus willingly laid down his life as a ransom for our sins, this was not an accident, this is our salvation.
When you realize who Jesus truly is, we mourn deeply for the punishment and torture Christ has endured for us. Not because he deserved but because we deserved it. God loves us so much, that even though we were sinners and rebellious, Jesus died for you!
But we can rejoice and be glad because Jesus has overcome the grave! Gods amazing grace has given us new life in Jesus Name Amen!
