Welcome to the Kerwin Baptist Church broadcast today.

Our desire is for the word of God spread throughout all may know Christ. Join us now for a portion of one of our services here at Kerwin Baptist Church located in Kernersville, North Carolina Chapter 19 and I would like to start there today if I can and I would like to. If you don't mind I want to look at this as an education process today.

It's amazing how many people go to good Bible believing churches in they might not fully understand the significance of what we call Palm Sunday, the Bible doesn't use that term, obviously, but that's what we call Jesus what we call his triumphal entry back into Jerusalem. What is interesting though is when Jesus entered back into Jerusalem and all this worship in and all the things that happened it literally, though, was the beginning of the end those very people that were worshiping him within a week said crucify him. And so while this is his triumphal triumphant but at the same time is tragic and it's a reminder to us and I want you to be able to understand today as we lead up to Easter. Obviously next week that we understand these things sometimes is really good conversation at work for you to make sure that your coworkers understand and it's an open door for the gospel to. There is a lot of untruth out over the years and in different beliefs about Palm Sunday so were to do our best. The Gospels, all cover this particular story that were doing but I want to use Luke chapter 19 has some details in it that I like and I were also going to trace it back briefly and to where this was prophesied back in the book of Zechariah, Luke chapter 19 verse 28. The Bible says when he had thus spoken, he went before ascending up to Jerusalem and it came to pass his meeting Jesus when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany at the mount called the Mount of olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying, go ye into the village over against you in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat lose him and bring him hither. And if any man ask you, why do ye loose him the show you Santa him because the Lord hath need of him. They that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them, and as they were loosing the colt. Now imagine this is somebody's property. They just go loosen up to take and the Bible says that as they were loosening up the coal verse 33.

The owners thereof said unto them, to do more of that as a diversion art was that of them why loose ye the colt.

They probably pulled out a colt for brother own colt you know kind of thing and they said the Lord hath need of him that would that work in your house and they brought him to Jesus. I guess it worked amazing God always provides what's necessary and he always makes away when it's his will.

Bible says that they brought him in verse 35 they brought him to Jesus. They cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon, and as he went, they spread their clothes in the way when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the Mount of olives, the whole multitude this obscene entering Jerusalem the whole multitudes of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord peace in heaven and glory in the highest.

What a wonderful scene and then verse 39 and some of the Pharisees. They always showed up in the from among the multitude said unto him, master review thy disciples. I believe Matthew has a fantastic account of this, it talks about the multitudes of people that were praising God as he was injuring were to talk about that.

The second we've entitled his palms a victory obscene. You know the old song talks about that I want explain this to you today and why this is exciting to says Bible believing Christians.

Lord we love you less. Your word as you always do. Please help me to try to make a lot of material plain simple to the point and understandable to our people. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen. Me describe this way.

Jesus and his disciples were traveling over the Mount of olives on their way to Jerusalem and I passed by a little village called Bethpage and what Jesus did he send his disciples ahead. Two of and he said I want you to go up and as we enter Jerusalem on one you to find me an animal to ride on this what Jesus said I wanted to be colt or a donkey and this donkey would be an animal that nobody never sat on had been broken hadn't been in other kind of animal that you know had been trained for somebody to ride on and I'll know about you but whether you talking donkey horse whatever you get on an animal that's never had somebody on them. That's a different experience in this just goes to show that the power that Jesus had not just over man but every part of creation belong to him. You know when it's a sign that you you would think of a donkey that nobody had ever written on that the wildness the stubbornness of the the desire not to have anybody on your back and yet this is a picture and this begins the process of showing you all the pictures through Palm Sunday what were talking about here. This shows the process how that Jesus can bank can bring peace into your life. He can break the most stubborn individual and bring peace was interesting.

The disciples said well you know if we go get this animal.

What if the owners have a problem. In order to go find some of what it in. And Jesus said well if they say anything just say that the Lord needs so that is exactly what they did. They went to Bethpage and they found obviously you know this donkey and and that we find in Matthew even an account that we believe there was a colt and then the son of that cold or a donkey and they brought both of these animals there to Jesus and they put their close their garments. The disciples that they laid them on the animal on this lonely donkey and as they put their clothing on him. Then then they obviously began to lead into Jerusalem is exactly what it happened. Now, if you notice in verse 31. The Bible says. And in Luke chapter 19 Jesus said if any man ask you, why do ye loose him just tell him the Lord hath need of him that's exactly what they did. This is another thing for us to learn is that when Jesus tells you to do something just do what he said to do and it'll work out.

You don't have to add to it, just say, well, Jesus said that the Lord has needed him and him are actually the owners like okay let me help you in time there. Amazingly, this owner let go. These animals and exactly what Jesus said would happen happened in as they went. They ascended toward Jerusalem and a large multitude began to gather around as they entered into the gates of Jerusalem and this crowd. I want you to understand today. They understood in the sense that Jesus was the Messiah, but what they did not understand is that it wasn't time for Jesus to set his kingdom up yet. You see, they thought when Jesus came into Jerusalem that day.

The triumphal entry of the Messiah.

They thought that he's going to come clean house set up his kingdom. Get rid of the political leaders take over and everybody's going to live in peace because of the Messiah. But Jesus that was in his plan was interesting, if you will look at chapter 19 where you're at. I want to look at verse 10. He describes this for the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which is lost same Oligomers 11 and as they heard these things, he added, and spake a parable because he was not higher close to Jerusalem and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear, you see the very people that that while I believe he is the Messiah because they thought he was going to set up his kingdom immediately, and when he did set up his kingdom immediately, but died on the cross for our sins.

All of a sudden, they change their tune and now they're saying crucify him when he didn't do what they thought he should do now. They didn't think he was the Messiah.

And it's amazing how many church people say their say. But when Jesus doesn't do what you think you should do when he doesn't line things up the way you think you should line things up in the way I think he should do think it's amazing how we can take them right off the throne. Don't we get mad we say he doesn't love us. He doesn't use the note for us. It's amazing how so many things are similar, but that was interesting is the crowds action along the road. That's what gave rise to the term Palm Sunday now the very large crowd. What they did. There's two different things and there's different accounts. Matthew 21 you want to write this down for sake comes that you need to do for sake of time today. Matthew 21 verse eight and following describes the process.

But what happens is as Jesus rode into Jerusalem. Many people took their garments and they would laid them in the road and then there are also individuals that took the leaves of palm trees. Always a sign of peace and it was the royal treatment now what you'll find in second Kings at your write this down for your own study.

Second Kings chapter 19 Jade who was given the same treatment when he was coordinated. So what these people were doing was tradition. They believe that Jesus was the Messiah, so they took their garments out. They laid him in the road for him to pass on and then many of them took those palm trees only read in these verses, so you know where you get palm trees. John chapter 12 verse 12 says this 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. So that's where we get the term Palm Sunday and you know because some people through their garments Palm Sunday is better than shirt Sunday or cope Sunday so we went with Palm Sunday, but it just simply describing what happened this day, which we believe is the Sunday before Jesus actually on Easter arose from the grave now in their praise of Jesus I want to explain to you what was going on. If you want to hold your place and see this. Matthew 21 verse nine. Luke has some details that I wanted you to see today but Matthew 21 verse nine, I'm not giving you some information and were to draw to a close briefly but I want you to see what the crowd specifically said as Jesus was entering Jerusalem on that lowly donkey say why he keeps saying that you understand Matthew 21 verse nine. This is what they said they said hosanna to the son of David. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest heaven now where in the world would they get back Psalm 118. Write it down.

Verse 25 to 26.

That's exactly what we call messianic song. It's a song that speaks of the Messiah coming and in Psalm 118 that's exactly is said, what would be said when the Messiah would come and because they believed he was the Messiah. They quoted the crowd literally quoted from Psalm 118 and this is why this is important because when they did that Pharisee got nervous because they knew that Scripture and they knew that Scripture was set aside for the Messiah. And you know that many Jewish Pharisees and Jewish people.

To this day still think the Messiah is yet to come. But I'm here to tell you he's Artie been here and he is sitting on the right hand of the throne of God right now but when the crowd began to say this. They knew that the crowd believes this man Jesus is the Messiah and that a problem that's why this was the beginning of the end. That's why they then sought to crucify and kill Jesus because they said these people believe he's the Messiah, and they didn't this was going to ruin business for them. So that's why it all started.

Now let me mention this if I can. Some of the Pharisees in the crowd when they heard it. If you notice in chapter 19 of Luke where you're at. That's why wanted to see the verse 39 the Bible says some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, master. They look to Jesus and they said master review thy disciples.

You see why it's so important because when the Pharisees heard all these people basically coordinating Jesus as Messiah. The Pharisees got upset and they went to Jesus and I said hey Jesus, you need to rebuke your disciples.

You need to stop them from saying stuff like that. Now notice Jesus response licorice Warden and he answered and said to them, I tell you that if these should hold their peace. In other words, if these people kept their mouth shut and they didn't worship me be said the stones would immediately cry you can stop their mouths if you want to, but if you if I tell them to be quiet. The very stones on the ground are going to praise me. That really got a mad Jesus was so politically correct what Jesus was so passive with a something Jesus spoke the truth with love, but he still spoke the truth.

So I got garbage. I get this now to me today why would I want to bring in the play today, some 4 to 500 years before this day ever happened. Zechariah prophesied of this day I know you're aware that but what I decided instead to give you my outline when you put these verses up on the screen because I want you to see them while I explained to you. Zechariah chapter 9 verse nine intent over disbelievers night up just for little bit.

I want you to see that some 4 to 500 years before this ever happened to Jerusalem.

Zechariah prophesied that this event, which we call Palm Sunday would take place. Now the prophecy that he gave in this verse was fulfilled and every little detail. Unfortunately, the crowds, they look for a Messiah know what you get this please. As you look at others, please hear what I'm saying all these multitudes of people are what we call disciples which were followers of Christ, not the apostles disciples were people that were believers. Supposedly the people that follow Jesus.

They thought that Jesus would rescue them politically or even nationally.

But Jesus came to save them spiritually. First, thanks for I cannot tell you something were not going to fix America politically until we fix America spiritually, you and I often we want to see something nationally or politically. They know that he is God he didn't come to save us politically or nationally.

He came to save us spiritually, you can change the outside, but it will last you gotta fix the inside and the crowds didn't like because when they realize that he was crucified and killed well.

He didn't set up his kingdom. He didn't do anything of that nature. While they just killed. He must not of been the Messiah that something wicked Zechariah chapter 9 verse nine words on the screen. If you have it turn to in your own Bible want you to read it. This is what Zechariah prophesied. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion or Psion. Some your Bibles I shout, O daughter of Jerusalem. Behold, thy King cometh unto the he is just and having salvation lowly and riding upon an ass or a donkey. Obviously, as we use nowadays, and upon a colt the full and after donkey. That's the prophecy is not amazing 4 to 500 years and this little inconspicuous profit just put this verse and they're just another little sign that the Messiah was coming and this is exactly how it would happen, and sure enough it happened exactly like he said, but this gives us even more information than all of the Gospels combined.

Why, because Zechariah before Jesus even showed up told us exactly what Jesus would be and I want to look at that this morning versus they appear want you to see.

Look at verse nine. First, I want you to see this, he said, rejoice greatly. You and I have a whole lot of reason to be happy today. This Palm Sunday were, get ready to celebrate.

Obviously a great day for us, which is Easter but can I tell you Palm Sunday is great for us because he wouldn't have risen if he hadn't come and Zechariah said in order for him to be the Messiah. This is what he has to be and this is exactly what Jesus was notice verse nine he said, behold, I King cometh under the notice number one. He is just now this word just as the Hebrew word Sunday get it means this it means lawful. It means, right chess. That means if he's going to be the Messiah. He has to be a person without sand now he just gives these three little words, he is just cannot tell you something.

Those three words are almost unbelievable aspect of our Savior.

The fact that he could be born man and God live here on earth supper on earth be treated the way he was treated on earth and never one time sin Bible says he was tempted in all points like we are, yet without sin. Why is this so important well to bring grace instead of the law. The law had to be fulfilled to you and I enjoy grace today, but in order for us to enjoy grace.

The law had to be done away with. And the only way the law can be done away with is that the law would be totally completely fulfill now to bring grace instead of the law. Law had to be fulfill but to be forgiven for sin. God had to be appeased with a perfect your sacrifice so you got two things going near the law has to be fulfilled.

And God has to be satisfied.

So Jesus came not want to get this to be forgiven of sin. God had to be appeased with a perfect sacrifice.

Jesus was righteous and lawful.

He fulfilled the law and he became a pure unblemished sacrifice for our sin, he had to be just righteous perfect PR in order for us to even have the chance to approach God, Jesus, as Zechariah said is just different.

If those three words could be said about Jesus, we wouldn't be meeting this morning we be burning in hell. There would be no hope. Jesus was righteous.

Notice the second thing he says about him. He is just Zechariah said and having what salvation where would we be without salvation. He showed up born man and God lived a perfect holy, righteous life. But guess what, if he had lived a perfect holy, righteous life. He could've gone right back to heaven and we would have been just like we are. But he brought salvation makes all the difference in the world and I say this, he didn't go get a bottle of salvation somewhere and bring it when the Bible say he had. He didn't go get it. He already had. That means is he didn't go by something so he can give some salvation to a bunch of people salvation. That's why he came he came to say bring us salvation is in a byproduct of him being here. That's why he came was to bring salvation. He is just having salvation while notice number three if you would've verse nine was the Bible say about lowly right after that perfectly crafted English; you have one word a minute, Zechariah, as the prophecy came to him through the leading of the Holy Spirit of God.

He said he is just he is having salvation lowly notice he didn't say hello. He said lowly, that means this lonely means. Although he was as high as you could possibly get.

He made himself low you get this. He rode on a lowly unbroken donkey military leaders would have written it on strong horses.

Political leaders would've written in gold chariots and a whole array of different things. Wealthy zealots of society would've showed up in some training of chariots or whatever the case might be, but all our Savior who was righteous was lowly. He held the highest office but he was lowly.

He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, but he was lowly legions of angels at his beck and call, but he was lowly. He was wealthier than all the wealthiest of the world combined.

But he was go to love our Savior. Wow he was humble, number three, he was lowly number four.

He's peaceful if you look at verse nine. As we said, I want to notice his phrases that he was lowly and he was riding upon a donkey for sake of you understand we don't want kids to hear words and repeat them in different things. I know how it means nowadays. It's a shame that the world perverts things he was lowly and riding upon a donkey having a colt the full of that donkey you that I understand why is this significant because you say he is writing in his king, but pains whatever and then on a big grant of our sort finish sharing or something. He was peaceful live because strong horses always meant a military presence me. The fight was coming. He wasn't coming to find folks already. Why you gotta fight a fight when you've Artie wanted even riding a horse taken over the already one. He wasn't coming to fight. They already have the victory listen to me he wasn't coming to be politically correct.

He was already God. He wasn't coming to rage war on the people he came to defeats. So instead of writing you like some political motivated leader or a military general.

He became an auto lowly, humble donkey to let the people know I come to bring peace now. I can rage the greatest war that's ever been raged and waited because I've already wanted, but I didn't come to fight you. I came to save you. He was peaceful, mastitis, laughter almost done here, and I'm excited about this.

Did you notice the very first thing that Zechariah said about them for even started describing in verse nine. I love this rejoice so greatly, O daughter of Zion shout, O daughter of Jerusalem. Behold, thy what blast he's king.

He is righteous. He's the Savior. He is humble he is peaceful. Zechariah said. But he said in verse nine, he's the king noticed first in a bring up at verse 10 up on here want to see what he said and I will cut off the chariot for me from the horse from Jerusalem.

Jesus came in on a donkey and he will overcome those in chariots, and those on the horse. No one excited about this, just leave me alone.

Okay really immersed in in the battle bow shall be cut off, nobody gonna fight against him.

Listen to this, he shall speak peace unto the heathen, and his dominion shall be from sea even to see and from the river, even to the ends of the earth. What is it mean dominion. He's king say what I didn't treat him like a king all their said all hosanna the highest, the Messiah has come in just a few days.

They crucify down say well he wasn't treated a whole bunch like a king hold on. It was amazing that a whole bunch of people whose garments had been taken off, thrown on the road. People that it taken the time to cut down palm branches and throw them on the road. It's amazing that all these people shouted for joy but they missed the real reason Jesus came, they could neither see nor understand the cross I want to get this in Luke chapter 19 where you're at. Hopefully still want to look at verse 41, look at this.

This is why Jesus wept so much as he entered Jerusalem and their praising him left and right.

He knew in his heart that they would try to verse 41 and when Jesus came near, he beheld the city and you think, oh, here's my time, everybody's ready to come in as the king in the Bible says what wet Wiley verse 42 saying, if thou hast known, even thou, at least in this thy day he's talking about Jerusalem.

The Jewish people. If you had only known the things which belong unto thy peace but now they are hit from thine eyes before Jesus ever even went to Jerusalem, he knew they could see him for who he really was.
