Mar23SatMarch 23, 2013John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus and now people lined the way for Jesus as He came into Jerusalem. What a celebration this must have been as the king came into town. Palm Sunday is a celebration of our salvation from death to life. “On Palm Sunday many Christians celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. For many Christian churches, Palm Sunday, often referred to as "Passion Sunday," marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday. The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branches and covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.” Sadly the celebration was cut short and the Saviour was to be crucified. What a turn around from celebration to bereavement. What was happening to this person Jesus who was to save us? Just as our generation have not listened to the word of God, they did not listen to His words as he told them what would happen to Him. He also shared the good news of His rising from the dead. But just as they missed the part about what kind of king he would be they missed the part that this had to happen in order for us to be saved. Remember the celebration continues because Jesus Christ has conquered death. Isaiah 25 “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken. 9 In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in Him, and He saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in Him; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.” Hosanna in the highest.
