Palm Sunday Sermon John 12 12 19
In the Gospel of John, Jesus enters Jerusalem as the Messiah. A few days before His crucifixion and resurrection, this day coincided with the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy, which is found in Dan. 9:24-27. This prophecy details God’s plan for the people of Israel. In the first part of the book, Daniel shows that God has prepared a 70 week period and four hundred years of reign.
This is the second Palm Sunday sermon to focus on Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. In the Gospel of John, the crowds welcomed Him with palm branches, shouting praise. In first century Israel, people would welcome a king into the city, wave palm branches and hail him as king. They wanted to be their own emperor, so they welcomed him with such joy. As the savior of the world, Jesus is our own king.
While wealth and material possessions are important, the true joy of life is found in storing up treasures in heaven. A person can never acquire lasting glory in this life. His eternal success comes from God’s praise for his humble service. He rode a donkey to death to earn the ultimate victory for us. If you want to be in the place of God, you need to be like Jesus.

In addition to worshipping their kings, they also celebrated their new King. They wanted to be His own ally and Messiah.
