₍₍ 5 things about Palm Sunday That Remind Us Jesus Christ Is King ₎₎

1. God’s Word tells us the people cut palm branches from palm trees and waved them in the air, stow them out on the ground before Jesus Christ as He rode into city. The palm branch expressed goodness and vitory and was symbolic of the final victory He would soon fulfill over death.

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Corinthians. 15:55

2. Jesus Christ selected to ride in on a donkey, which mean fulfilled Bible Old Testament prophecy of Zechariah. 9:9 (“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”).

In Biblical times, it was common for kings or important people to arrive by a cortege riding on a donkey. The donkey symbolized peace, so those people who selected to ride them showed that they came with peaceful intentions. Jesus Christ even then reminded us that He is the Prince of Peace.

3. When the people say loudly “Hosanna!” they were hailing Jesus Christ as King. That word exactly means “save now,” and though in their own minds they waited for an earthly king, God had a different way in mind of conveyance true salvation to all who would trust in Him.

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!” Psalm. 118:26

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans. 10:9

4. The Holy Bible says that Jesus Christ wept for Jerusalem. In the middle of the praise of the moment, He knew in His heart that it wouldn’t be long that these same people would turn their backs on Him, betray Him, and crucify Him. His heart broke with the reality of how much they required a Savior.

“As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it, and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes.” Luke 19:41-42

5. Palm Sunday reminds us that the reign of Jesus Christ is far greater than any the mind of man could ever plan. Man looked for someone to fight their all battles in the present day world. Yet God had the eventual plan of sending His Son to fight the final battle over death. This is the greatness of why we celebrate in the week. Because of Jesus Christ’s eventual sacrifice, we can be set free of death.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,” John 11:25

In this Holy Week, God direct our thoughts and attention towards what matters most, Christ our King…

Let’s choose to concentrate on worshiping our Lord, thanking Him for the great gift of His sacrifice, celebrating the power of the Resurrection, and also the new life found in Him alone. Amen

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians. 9:15

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter / Jesus Christ’ Resurrection Day that begins the Holy Week. It’s the day that we remind and celebrate the day Jesus Christ entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus Christ rode a donkey into the city of Jerusalem. A massive crowd gathered and stow palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus Christ royal treatment. The hundreds of people spoke loudly “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the God! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

“Christian people celebrate Palm Sunday, that is often the Sunday before Easter (Don’t Say Happy Easter, say Happy Resurrection Day) / Jesus’ Resurrection Day. Perhaps your church has kids waving palm branches to remind the story. But while this is a prideful entry, it’s Jesus Christ ‘ first step toward His death.

According To Matthew 21:4 :

‘This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, ‘Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’ The prediction is cited from Zechariah 9:9 and Isaiah 62:11.

Jesus had become somewhat of a celebrity among people that had heard of the supernatural raising of Lazarus from the dead, and they wished to see Him and treat Him like a king. But Jesus Christ wasn’t reaching to be their king on account of Lazarus; the story of Lazarus would have had the spiritual leaders in even more of an furore and determined to put an end to His life, that He knew . . . Jesus Christ’ glory would be exceptional than that of a local king.

The Story of Palm Sunday in Bible :

Gospel of Matthew 21:1-11 – Jesus Christ Comes to Jerusalem as King

As they approached Jerusalem (city of Israel) and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus Christ sent his two (2) disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied with rope there, with her colt by her. Untie them and convoy them to me. If anyone says something to you, so say that the Lord requisite them, and he will send them immediately.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Matthew 21:4) The disciples went and did as Jesus Christ had command them. They brought the donkey and also the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus Christ to sit on. A huge massive crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut palm branches from the palm trees and spread them on the road. The hundreds of people spoke loudly “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the God! Hosanna in the highest heaven!” once Jesus Christ (Son of God) entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The huge massive crowds answered, “This is Jesus Christ Son of God, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.

On the heels of Palm Sunday, as we start this Holy Week, may we perpetually be reminded of its importance and value for our lives today. That very important day in history, once Jesus Christ began His journey towards the cross.

Yet perhaps in the midst of busy lives, on the heels of Spring Break, or in all of the upcoming thoughts about Easter, the real meaning of it may, even accidentally, get missed.

His Word reveals such nice truths in every part of this story. Truths that draw us closer towards Jesus Christ, reminding us that He alone is King…
