We must therefore, always keep in remembrance on this day, how over two thousand years ago, our Lord Jesus, THE RIGHTEOUS came into JERUSALEM riding on a donkey prior to his crucifixion when he died for the sins of the world (John 1:29) (1 John 2:2).
“AND when they drew nigh unto [JERUSALEM], and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
Saying unto them, ‘Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
[TELL YE THE DAUGHTER OF SION, BEHOLD, THY KING COMETH UNTO THEE], meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.’
And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon” (Matthew 21:1-7).
“On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that [JESUS WAS COMING TO JERUSALEM],
Took branches of [PALM TREES], and went forth to meet him, and cried, [HOSANNA: BLESSED IS THE KING OF ISRAEL] that cometh in the name of the Lord” (John 12:12-13).
“And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; [HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST].
And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
And the multitude said, ‘[THIS IS JESUS THE PROPHET OF NAZARETH OF GALILEE]’” (Matthew 21:8-11).
GOD sent JESUS to be the propitiation for the sins of the world (John 3:16-18).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).
“[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).
Now then, as THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE THINGS THAT ARE ETERNAL IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST who died for us; for this purpose then WE SHOULD LIVE UNTO HIM AND NOT UNTO OURSELVES (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8).
“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
