As we celebrate Palm Sunday, we reflect upon the triumphant entry of the Lord Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. Men, women and children were worshipping Him and Praising Him. Everyone was not happy that day. The religious were furious and went to Jesus demanding that His followers stop. They recognized that Jesus was His followers were doing what was foretold in the Scriptures.
Zechariah 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 a colt the foal of an ass.
Jesus made His entry into Jerusalem and there was shouting and praise unto God. The crowd was saying Hosanna; blessed is he that c ometh in the name of the Lord. They were celebrating the arrival of their Great King and Lord God.
Isn’t it amazing that even though Jesus went about doing good by healing the sick and delivering the captives, He was hated by some and they sat in motion to destroy Him. Isaiah said it right He was a man that was rejected and despised. He bore our guilt and sins upon His own body as our sacrificial lamb of God. He willingly laid down His life for us. The Innocent, Holy One took upon Himself all our sins and willing took the bitter cup by giving His Life and a ransom. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. The innocent for the guilty. The Holy One for the filthy and sinful ones. We have all sinned and come short of God’s Glory.
When Christ made His Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem, He was met with worship and praise by some and hatred and rejection by others. The scriptures tell us that Christ first died for our sins and then rose from the dead; triumphant over death, hell and the grave. The Great King of Glory before He could be crowned King of kings and Lord of lords, first needed to conquer sin and the penalty of sin and that is death.
He truly is victorious over death, hell and the grave. Let us crown Him, worship Him and Magnify Him for He truly is Worthy of all Praise.
Has Jesus Christ made His Triumphant entry into your heart? Has He defeated the enemy of sin and given you the gift of the Holy Ghost? That’s what it is all about. Sealing us with the Holy Spirit of Promise.
