Listen to Thy King Cometh, Part One, by Lasseerre Bradley JR at One Place.
"The text tells us that "much people" were come to the feast, so first we look at the people. They are excited about the entrance of Jesus into the city and declare he is king, while they wave palm branches and cry "Hosanna." But their enthusiasm was short-lived. By the end of the week many would cry "Crucify him."
"Then we look at the King. This king came came in humility and gentleness. His purpose was not to set up an earthly kingdom, but to go to the cross where he would die and redeem fallen sinners.
"Finally, we consider the kingdom. It is unique, because it is not of this world. It is a kingdom of peace and a kingdom which endures. As you look at the faltering kingdoms of earth do you not find comfort to know there is a kingdom which endures forever?"
On the next day the large crowd who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout, "Hosanna! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, even the King of Israel."
