Luke 19:31 - And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

In today's message we read that Jesus sent His disciples to a place where they would find an ass tied, which they were to bring to Him. Jesus needed that ass because He needed to fulfill the prophesy as given through the prophet Zechariah (9:9).

Zechariah 9:9
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

If you observe the scripture it says the King comes riding on an ass and then the word 'and' follows. The second animal is which the King comes on is not an ass, but it says a young (colt) relative (foal) of an ass.

We all know that ass is related to the horse. In the book of Revelation John writes about the Rider on the white horse who is the King of Kings and whose name is 'The Word of God'. In the Gospel of John, John the Apostle writes that Jesus Christ as the Word of God who became flesh.

People are waiting for the Rider on the white horse to come, the King of Kings to come just like the whole of Israel waited for their Savior to come. The irony is we like Israel (Jews) did not know that the savior was among them during the time of Jesus and were awaiting Him. Even today the Jews are still waiting for their Savior.

It was a few years back when the Lord revealed to me about the Rider of the white horse. It was just awesome to understand that the Rider had already come and has been among us since a long time and yet like we are awaiting Him. If you look at history from the time the early Church (Apostle's Church) fell and became into RC Church (which was around 200-300AD) the revival of the church happened exactly after 1260years from then. The scriptures talk about the woman (Church) being taken away into the desert and saved from the dragon for 1260years. This woman is now come back and it's children will bruise the head of the dragon.

Taking the Bible unto the people and formation of the believer Church are the first works of the Rider on the white horse. He has been gathering His army since the 1400-1500AD and moving forward progressing the Kingdom of God. If you record it was after this period true evangelizing of the Word started. Many anointed Men of God started coming out into the public after this period.

My dear brother and sisters in Christ, we go about this world witnessing Christ with fear not knowing that we are part of a great army led by the King of Kings. Our King is among us and we are not aware of Him. With Him among us why do we still fear! What have we to fear when the beings in Heaven and even those below the earth bow unto Him?

Do not confuse with the second coming of Jesus Christ, which is about Him coming as man. This is when He comes as Son of man to judge the world. If you realize the Judgment Day as approximately indicated in the Bible is about 2500-2520 AD, exactly 1000 years from the coming of the Rider on the white horse, thus fulfilling the scriptures.

The King is not here to rule this world; this world is not part of His Kingdom. This world will perish when He comes as man to judge it. He is here to gather His people unto His real Kingdom and He needs you and me who are part of His army to march forth with Him.

[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, like in the Bible Elisha prayed to open the eyes of the young man and he would see the great army, Lord we pray that the eyes of your people be opened to see the King of Kings among us and His great army marching forth to do its work. Lord we intercede for the army that they march forth with all boldness especially those who are weak and do not have the courage to witness You among the people of this world...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
