The King Is Coming

Big Idea: Palm Sunday was a happy time because Jerusalem witness the entry of their king.  We too must lift our heads and give entry to the King, the groom.

Scripture: Lift up your heads, O gates!

And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!

Lift up your heads, O gates! Thanks

And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah

Psalms 24:7-10 ESV

 

 

Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.”  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 disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them.  Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”   Matthew 21:1-9

 

Application:

Some of the people were ignorant. “What’s happening here?”

Some were excited, “the King is coming!”

And others were indignant. “Who does he think he is?”

What am I feeling about the entry of the King and the coming wedding?
