ALT TEXT = "palm branches hosanna"

By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

The mob can turn.

One day you’re the favorite, the next day you’re not.

It happened a couple thousand years ago as Jerusalem was getting ready for a big event called Passover.

Everyone was busy preparing, anticipating, and rushing around when a man rode into the city on a donkey. Not all that unusual, but the actions of the people with him were.

They spread their cloaks on the road for the donkey to walk on, waved palm branches in the air, and shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD! Hosanna in the highest!” 

Hosanna means “send help from on high.”

This guy was trending.

The people had Messiah in mind—the one who would rescue them from oppression.

They didn’t know He was the sacrificial “lamb of God” who had come to rescue them from their sins, not wage war against Rome.

Four days later, the crowd called for His crucifixion.

They demanded it. Screamed for it.

Got it.

He wasn’t what they had expected. He didn’t fit in their idea box.

They didn’t know He was indeed the help they needed from on high, for who but God could snatch mankind from the jaws of judgement and death?

To be continued …

Because God’s children are human beings
—made of flesh and blood—
the Son also became flesh and blood.
For only as a human being could he die,
and only by dying could he break the
power of the devil,
who had the power of death.
Only in this way could he set free all
who have lived their lives as slaves to
the fear of dying.
Hebrews 2:14-15

    God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die on the cross to pay for all our sins. Jesus was sinless. He was the only one that could save us! He freely gave His life for us. He submitted to the Father’s plan.
    All that accept The Resurrected Jesus as their personal Savior will eventually be resurrected also to spend eternity with Him.
    There will be no more evil, death, sickness or sorrow.
