Palm Sunday: Precision Prophecy


As you celebrate Palm Sunday (March 24th this year), remember that this day …

… not only marks the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-40; John 12:12-19) …

… not only sets in motion the events of the Passion week …

But this day commemorates the precise fulfillment of numerous Old Testament prophecies … even to the very date on the calendar!

Check out Zechariah 9:9“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!  Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem!  Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, humble, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

For those of you who were part of the OC Bereans when we studied the O.T. book of Daniel early last year, may remember that the angel Gabriel delivered an extremely detailed and precise timetable for the future (Daniel 9:21-27).  Based on what Gabriel stated in verses 25-26, we know that the predicted date would be the 10th of Nissan in A.D. 32, or 173,880 days from the Decree of Artaxerxes (Nehemiah 2:1)!

We are loved by … and we serve … an AMAZING God! … who has delivered to us an “integrated message system from outside our time and space domain” … revealing His character and His will.

“Hosanna to the son of David.  Blessed is the King that comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.  Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
