These are words that will never cease from the mouths of those who truly know Emmanuel – “God with us.” To rejoice means to outwardly express great joy. To rejoice means to be glad and take delight in something or someone. Zech 9:9 says; Rejoice greatly , O daughter of Zion! This refers to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the Church. The words of Zechariah predicted the coming of a great King. One who would bring salvation to Israel. The one who would redeem and restore them. Jesus rode triumphantly into Jerusalem on a donkey, not a chariot, with wheels of gold as expected. (Matthew 21:5 and John 12:15).
Daughter of Zion, daughter of Jerusalem, shout, announce and declare the good news. There is reason to rejoice! Every believer, both Jew and Gentile has cause to rejoice. The promised Messiah, the Son of David, the King, the Redeemer, Emmanuel is with us. The redeemer of Israel is just and righteous. He came to save, “having salvation,” though He didn’t come as Israel was expecting Him. He came meek and lowly, giving all. He gave it all on the cross. He came with the power to redeem. He knows those who belong to Him.
He is knocking on the hearts of men and women today. Will you rejoice and share the good news of Emmanuel, “the One who came down to be with us.” He came down to earth and humbled himself. His promise is sure, yes and amen. Make your boast in the Lord this morning. You can boast about so many things, but those who know their God will boast about Him. May all those who hear your voice rejoice and be glad (Psalm 34:2). He is compassionate, kind, gentle and of a humble heart. Receive Jesus Christ today and have rest for your soul (Matthew 11:29).
Hallelujah!!! Emmanuel is with us!!! Salvation is come!!!
