Today's word is from Matthew 21:7-11
They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!”
Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem was on Sunday or Monday, and He was crucified by Wednesday, the 1st day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the “High Sabbath.”
It is interesting that the same people [with a few exceptions] that cried out “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!” 2-3 days later raised their voices and cried out, “Crucify Him, Crucify Him!”
The people wanted a RULER KING and that is who they thought Jesus was at the time of the triumphal entry, but as soon as they discovered that Jesus came not to be served, but to serve as a servant leader, and that He was not going to lead a revolt to overthrow the Roman empire, they wanted Him dead.
We all have pre-conceived ideas as to who Jesus is, and how He does things, and many believers become very offended if Jesus does not do things on their terms. Yes, Jesus did come to serve, but He served according to His Father’s commands, not the people’s commands.
In other words Jesus was and still is led by the Father, not by man’s demands. When Jesus serves us, the Father leads Him in the way that He believes is best, and according to His will, not always ours.
As believers we need to TRUST the ways, the timing and the methods of the Father. We need to rest, and have faith that in Christ, all things will indeed work out for the best, as we place our trust in Him! As we do that, we will not become disheartened, bitter or disappointed. God is good, and he has a blessed future for all of his children.
Father, I place my trust in You! Holy Spirit, lead me to discover who God is, His ways and His timing… renew my mind!
Father, I will NEVER question Your ways, Your timing or Your methods… I know that You love me and that in trusting You I will receive the highest, best blessing when I need it most, in Jesus Name!
JOIN US FOR AN AMAZING, ANOINTED TIME OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP AND CELEBRATION TOGETHER WITH A POWERFUL, LIFE-CHANGING PALM SUNDAY MESSAGE FOLLOWED BY A BAPTISM ON THE BEACH
We are going to have a beach baptism after church @Amazing Love tomorrow, March 20 THIS PALM SUNDAY!
Please invite friends and family to join us if they have not yet been water baptized.
If you have not been baptized yet or if you want to be re baptized, please come prepared to be baptized. Bring your bathing suit, a pair of shorts and a T-shirt. We will announce where the baptism will be held at church.
Galatians 3:27 says, “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ,” so through Baptism, we put on Christ! Instead of putting on clothes, we clothe ourselves in Christ [the Anointed one and His Anointing!]
So after water baptism you should expect the level of the anointing to increase dramatically in your life!
Please feel free to forward this to friends, family or co-workers that you would like to invite to our church and water baptism on Sunday!
Amazing love meets each Sunday 10am @Kapolei High School
