The Palm Sunday 2020

The Church celebrates today the Palm Sunday which is the entrance of the LORD JESUS to Jerusalem; this was HIS last entrance to Jerusalem after which HE was crucified.
Truly when we talk about Jerusalem, it resembles the human soul; Let us go through together and see what has happened when the LORD has entered into Jerusalem, but I will take off the word Jerusalem and replace it by the word I or the human soul or my heart.
When the LORD JESUS enters my heart (Jerusalem) HE does 3 things Purifies, changes and makes it joyful.  How is that?
The first thing the LORD JESUS did after HE has entered Jerusalem was that HE went into the Temple and cast out the buyers and sellers and overthrew the tables of the money-changers and said “Mat 21:13 “My house shall be called the house of prayer”; but you have made it a den of thieves.”  So the first thing the LORD JESUS did was to purify the Temple.  The first thing the LORD JESUS does when HE comes into my soul is to purify the heart.
For example, St Mary Magdalene met with the LORD JESUS her temple was purified, HE cast out 7 devils from her, the same act of purification.  In Jerusalem, HE cast out the buyers and sellers and purified the Temple and when HE entered St Mary Magdalena’s heart HE cast out the devils and purified her.
The second thing is the changing:
It is not possible that anyone comes to know the LORD JESUS and he does not get changed, let us take an example Zacchaeus the tax collector. Zacchaeus loved his money and wealth very much and he was a very unfair man in his job as a tax collector and used to report anyone evading the taxes so that he gets jailed.  The LORD JESUS came into his house and sat with him, Zacchaeus said to the LORD “Luke 19:8 Behold, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor. And in anything I accused anyone falsely, I restore it fourfold.”  This means that when the LORD came into Zacchaeus house Zacchaeus was a rich man and when the LORD left the house Zacchaeus was almost broke, for someone to change from a money lover to someone giving up all his wealth to the poor and compensating those he treated unfairly, such changing cannot happen except by the LORD JESUS when HE comes into this sole.
So the first thing the LORD JESUS does when entering Jerusalem (my heart) is????Purification.
The second thing is????Changing.
The third thing is rejoicing: when the LORD JESUS enters someone’s heart, this person will find himself very happy no matter the troubles he is having.  St Paul when he was in prison and chained across the ankles he said “Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say, rejoice!” how can he rejoice and he is in prison and might be killed?  That is exactly what the LORD has said (John 16:22) “And therefore you now have sorrow. But I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”
The most important thing today is that the LORD enters my Jerusalem and I hope that during this week we get only concerned by the LORD JESUS who Purifies, Changes and gives us happiness. Good News
