This weekend April 10 we as Christians we celebrate Palm Sunday. This is the triumphant entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. The crowd was so excited that Jesus was entering Jerusalem on a donkey. This symbolized the entrance of a conquering King after a military victory. What they thought was that Jesus was about to take his place in the King’s palace and destroy the Roman occupation of Israel and Jerusalem.  There cheers became jeers when they realized that he was not what they thought he was.

In actuality, Jesus was entering triumphantly as a conquering King. His reign was not in the natural kingdom but in a spiritual kingdom. His final victory was yet to come one week later. He defeated the powers of darkness, death and Satan himself.

This Sunday attend a church and celebrate the triumphant entry of Jesus into your life as He has defeated the same powers of darkness, death and Satan in your life. All you need to do is believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord and you enter that spiritual realm called the Kingdom of Heaven.

Then next Sunday April 17 we celebrate Jesus and our ultimate victory. Resurrection

Remember it’s the truth you know and walk in that sets you free.
