Sunday Blessings - That 's My King

Today we celebrate Palm Sunday, the royal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem the city of His crucifixion. Although Jesus used a humble donkey as a mode of transport , His entry is called the triumphal entry because the crowds hailed Him as a King thinking He would give them freedom from their political oppressors. Little did they know that Jesus had come to give them spiritual deliverance not political emancipation. Not realizing their predicament the very same crowd who bestowed on Him "Hosannas in the Highest " screamed for His cruel execution on the cross.
Listen to this message by the late preacher Dr S M Lockridge, a powerful messenger of God. I have a very old worn out recorded (copied) tape of his which I got in the early 80s as a young Christian. Glory fills my soul whenever I listen to it.

Here is another Palm Sunday video.

Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna
in the Highest,
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.

My Dad was Mr Palm Sunday when he was well :-). It was a very important day to him, and he'd bring blessed Palm to all those he knew from his parish who could not get out. You've brought back lovely memories of my Dad for me, thank you. ~Mary

Hello David, I had a very good day today. In the evening I went to see Simran andher family and recorded her singing a Sunday school song. I will post that later on.

Dear Paresh, good to get your email. I will keep in mind what you said. God bless you.

Dear Mary,
Palm Sunday is celebrated with great enthusiasm in our churches in India. The churches are decorated with gree palm branches
and children sing special song etc. In some churches they distribute dates for people to eat - after service that is.

Dear Amrita,
I see you have had the good start of the silent week.
my brother used to play Jesus Christ Superstar as a prelude to the Easter week.
Lots of stuff to call for reflection and set the spirit in the right mood, even though I do not quite equal with its theology.
William Lloyd Webber, the father of Andrew and Julian, has composed a beautiful Easter Oratorio.
Gunnar and I attended this just a week ago, in our church.
Might me on YouTube.

Oh, yes, Amrita, I love Dr. Lockridge's "That's My King!" (As a matter of fact, I just posted it to my facebook profile!)

Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of Lords! (Reference 1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14, 19:16). Hallelujah!
