And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields. Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting: “Hosanna! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Mark 11:8-9
Imagine you were in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday! Imagine you were there while the King of Kings and Lord of Lords was riding through, you spread out your coat and palm branches on the road in admiration for the King! The King is Coming! The King is Coming!
Finally the fulfillment of all the Messianic Prophecies is here, Finally Israel will be saved and the Kingdom of God will be restored! Finally Rome will no longer have its iron grip on us and persecute our families! Finally the Christ is here!
Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest!” Mark 11:10
Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a donkey, fulfillment of the prophecy from Zechariah, surely this man Jesus is the Son of God who will reestablish Gods Kingdom here on Earth! Everyone was in awe of the Messiah, everyone was filled with hope that God has saved his people!
When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, Luke 19:41
But as Jesus approached Jerusalem he was mourning over it, why? Because Jesus knew what was going to happen, he knew he would be rejected as their Messiah. Because Jesus came to save the whole world and not just Israel. Jesus had to come as the Lamb of God first before returning as the Lion of Judah
But be ready, the Lion of Judah is returning! The King is coming soon! This time will be permanent and he will establish Gods Kingdom forevermore Amen!
