King of Kings

Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. Luke 19:38

One of the great moments is Palm Sunday, when Jesus marched into Jerusalem as the King of Kings. This moment was however shortlived , as the Jewish people quickly turned on him when they realized he was not the King that they had envisioned

Jesus came as the Lamb, to take away the sins of the world. The Jewish people were looking for the Lion of Judah, to rule with a rod of iron. This will happen eventually, however first Jesus came to save everyone who calls upon the name of The Lord

And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. Luke 19:40

Jesus makes a very profound statement here, “even if the world rejects him, he will still be worshipped” What is Jesus saying here? First he’s demonstrating his deity , as Jesus is God and created the Heavens and the Earth including us. Yes Jesus was there in Genesis during Creation, he doesn’t need us to worship him, but has opened his arms to us out of love if we choose to.

Second I believe Jesus is introducing the New Covenant here. Even if Israel rejects him , Jesus is establishing a New Covenant with anyone who receives him as Lord. Jew, Gentile, Roman , Greek, they all become a Child of God with the blood of Jesus Christ and the baptism of the Holy Spirit

When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. Luke 19:41-41

Jesus wept over Jerusalem, Jesus wept over Israel, why? Because he knew what was going to happen, as Israel rejected their Messiah. He knew his resurrection would change the world, and turn the world upside down.  The destruction of The Temple which marked the end of the Old Covenant.

But Jesus is coming back , not as the Lamb but as the Lion of Judah! Blessed be the King of Kings! Amen!
