                              Who Is This?

                         Matthew 21:1-11 (NIV)
21 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”
4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5 “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Since being set free from the bondage of slavery forced upon them by the Egyptians, the children of Israel kept finding themselves back in oppression. The Old Testament accounts show that the Philistines,
The Babylonians, Assyrians, Israel's own kings, the Romans and even 
Religion trapped God's chosen people and enslaved them.

We are not immune, for we keep finding ways to enslave ourselves as well. Today's Slave Masters are Money, Drugs, Alcohol, Sex, People, 
Gambling, Fear, Addictions, Religion, pornography and so many other things.

The fulfillment of of years of prophesy that the Messiah was coming to deliver God’s people and set things in order. Was unfolded in Matthew 21 verse 1 through 11

Matthew 21:9
9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Hosanna means:

  1. Save US Now O LORD!
  2. We Pray To You O LORD!
  3. O LORD, Please Give Us Success!

Psalm 118:25 (NKJV)
25 Save now, I pray, O Lord; O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
