From the Pastor’s Desk

Sunday, April 10, 2022

“The next day a vast crowd of those who had come to the Passover Feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him. And as they went, they kept shouting, Hosanna! Blessed is He and praise to Him. Who comes in the name of the Lord, even the king of Israel!” (Psalm 118:26)

“And Jesus, having found a young donkey, rode upon it (that) as it is written in the Scriptures. Do not fear, O Daughter of Zion! Look! Your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!” (Zech. 9:9)

“His disciples did not understand and could not comprehend the meaning of these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified and exalted, they remembered that these things had been written about Him and had been done to Him. The group that had been with Jesus when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from among the dead kept telling it (bearing witness as) to others. It was for this reason that the crowd went out to meet Him, because they had heard that He had performed this sign (proof, miracle).” (John 12:12-18 Amplified Bible)

The pilgrims who had come to Jerusalem for Passover had heard about Jesus’ raising of Lazarus and were convinced that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. So they accompanied Him into the city; shouting praise to God and singing the words of Psalm 118: 25-26 — “You are my God and I will praise You, You are my God, I will exalt You. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever.”

You are loved, Pastor Don
