Palm Sunday is important to me and Christians everywhere. It is the day we celebrate our Lord’s Triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the world. The day our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ took His Royal Title as King of Kings, and announced His rightful place at the Throne as God’s Son.
He fulfilled prophecy on this day as Zechariah 9:9 tells us:
Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See your King comes to you, Righteous and Victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Jesus Christ fulfilled many prophecies in the Old Testament, Zechariah and in Isaiah 53:
Who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord revealed His powerful arm? My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to Him. He was despised and rejected-a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest drief. We turned our backs on Him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighted Him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins! But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so wwe could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on Him the sins of us all. He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, He did not open His mount. Unjustly condemned, Hew was led away. No one cared that He died without descendants, that His life was cut short in midstream. But He was struck down for the rebellion of mhy people. He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But He was buried like a criminal; Hew was put in a rich man’s grave. But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush Him and cause Him grief. Yet when His life is made an offering for sin, He will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord’s good plan will prosper in His hands. When He sees all that is accomplished by His anguish, He will be satisfied and because of His experience, my Righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for He will bear all their sins. I will give Him the honors of a Victorious Soldier, because He exposed Himself to death. He was counted among the rebels. He bore the sins of manhy and interceded for rebels.
PRAISE TO THE KING OF KINGS! JESUS CHRIST!
