Day 39: Hosanna
Oh how they greeted
as they waved
THE KING OF THE JEWS
rode into town on a donkey.
A KING riding on a donkey.
But this was the same
who was born in a smelly stable.
Why would anyone
BELIEVE that this was a KING
when HE never looked like royalty.
Would I have believed IN HIM?
I probably wouldn't have because I would have
to see a man sitting on a throne
with a caravan of servants
while HE was performing miracles to prove to me
that HE was the ONE who we all have been WAITING for.
HE was not only greeted with
Palm Branches and the words~
“Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the LORD!
Blessed is the KING of Israel!” (John 12:13)
But also greeted with all those who didn't come with palm branches
because they came with the nails that would hang HIM later that week~
"So the Pharisees said to one another,
'See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after HIM!'” (John 12:19)
All because they knew, deep in their hearts,
who this MAN could possibly be~
“Here is this MAN performing many signs.
If we let HIM go on like this,
everyone will believe IN HIM, &then
the Romans will come and take away both our temple & our nation” (John 11:47-48).
BLESSED IS HE flowing from some mouths
BLESSED IS NOT HE because
HE may be & maybe
I will have to BELIEVE IN HIM and then what?
"DO NOT BE AFRAID, Daughter Zion;
see, your KING is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt” (John 12:15).
The same "DO NOT BE AFRAID" words that greeted HIS mother from the angel's mouth
announcing that THE KING would be born to her.
Who was riding on a donkey & born in a stable & swaddled in Rags~
when HE deserved to wear a ROBE.
But JESUS did so
HE could ROBE
because no matter what anyone says
was born to be
especially the doubters who are so afraid to
What if this is really true?
What if I can be set free?
What if I can be forgiven?
What if I can be filled with a peace that transcends all understanding~
HE IS THE KING
Who Rode on a donkey
Who was Born in a stable
& just maybe
HE made the exchange
to take us
FROM RAGS TO RICHES!
“Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the LORD!"
BLESSED IS YOU
the moment you
JESUS is here
to take that journey to the cross~
Wave you palms
"HELLO GRACE" (listen to the song below)
