PALM SUNDAY: Hosanna to the King of Kings

Palm Sunday begins the holiest week of the year for Christians, and the Passover Feast for the Jewish people. Our Lord and Savior Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey on this day for the Jewish feast of Passover. In biblical times the donkey was a symbol of peace and it was understood that those who rode them were of peaceful intentions, and the palms were symbols of martyrdom or victory over death. Many people believed.

46But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. 47Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. 48If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. (John 11:46-48 KJV)

And from then on they plotted to kill Him. Jesus is just as much of a threat to their 'place and nation' today as He was then. Even more so because this time He is coming with vengeance in the final battle that ends satan’s reign on this earth and begins the glorious reign of Jesus. Hosanna to the King of Kings who is coming to reign.

5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
(1 Timothy 2:5-6 KJV)

He is the way, the truth and the life. Praise His holy name and give thanks for all He has done, and is doing and all that is to come.

“I am the way the truth and the life; NO MAN cometh unto the Father BUT BY ME.” — Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

…SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION?

People are out in the streets in many countries with a recent report of protests against Putin in Russia. Last week the Thai people were throwing their own blood on the doors of parliament and in the streets. That is dreadful but it represents the level of dissatisfaction of those who are supposed to represent the people. Many people are starting to realize the lie of the fa├žade that has been status quo for so long and we are seeing the desire for a revolution all across the whole world.

Revolution:
(n.) A fundamental change in political organization, or in a government or constitution; the overthrow or renunciation of one government, and the substitution of another, by the governed.

Yes, we the governed, want a change.

Proverbs 29:2 (KJV)
2When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.


The Lord is coming to lead His people out of slavery once again. This time the change, the revolution, will be permanent. Do people want the Lord to be their ruler? Adam and Eve rebelled against His will and it certainly did not serve them very well by being kicked out of the garden. We are still lost and floundering outside of the garden while trying to make it our own way and have failed miserably for being removed from God is misery.

Enough suffering and onto restoration, I say. Some say we are going to have a leaderless revolution. I say it is the Lord Himself who is the leader of this revolution that is coming. He was a revolutionary when He walked the earth and what a change He is about to make in world today.


Jeremiah 17:7-8 (KJV)

7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.


The Lord is so good. Soon may all His people be rejoicing.

ISAIAH CHAPTER 12

1And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

2Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

4And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

5Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

6Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
