King's Sweepers the following week: Mumma
(Notes by Kathy Y)
Many symbols are used by Christians. Ex: Cross is a symbol of our salvation; Bread & juice-Blood and body of our savior; Fishes & loves-provisions; Towel-servant.
The palm branch is a symbol of royalty. When a king is in our midst...that's when the palms are waved. Today is the day we remember Jesus' entry into Jerusalem (II Sam 7:12, Psalm 89)
Great joy was expressed when Jesus rode into Jerusalem. The sounds were so loud they were told to hold it down. All gospels tell of His entry into Jerusalem.
Luke 19:28 (Pastor read Luke's account of this entry.)The disciples were excited-expecting liberation from Rome for their people. They expected him to overcome the Romans. (Jesus will one day riding a white stallion horse) thru the Eastern Gate (AKA Golden Gate) It has now been sealed by the Muslims. However, when Jesus returns, He will break that seal and enter thru that gate again. (Heb 12:2) The purpose of His life was in full view there on the west side of Jerusalem; the Hill of Golgotha...containing a stone that looks like a skull.
Hosanna's (God save us!) were shouted. The Pharisees told Him to quiet the crowds & He said if He did, the stones would cry out. Jesus only wept twice; during Lazareth's death and for Jerusalem. For 2k years they cried out for their savior
Vs 41 He wept. He made this day a personal day for Israel, but they couldn't see it.
Vs 43-44 He gives a prophesy...to this day, not one piece of evidence is there to prove a temple was once there. Year 70AD, Kind Titus demolished the temple.
Pastor gave an invitation to make Jesus our King. With the palm we sing "Hosanna"
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Prayer/Praises: Kathy K.'s mother; Baby Bonnie Daniel's doing well; Bonnie doing good in spite of her heart beating an extras beats; Pfaunmiller's MoM of April; Susan (Darlene's neighbor) having seizures. Jack's wife, Sue, wrist doing well; Darryl's Mary's tumor on ovary is benign!! YAY, PTL
