JesusRidesIntoJerusalem

TODAY  IS  PALM  SUNDAY…… THE   DAY  LONG  AGO  WHEN  JESUS  CAME  RIDING  INTO  JERUSALEM  ON  A  LOWLY  DONKEY…… AS  THE  CROWD  WAVED  PALM  BRANCHES….. AND  SHOUTED  THEIR  PRAISES  “BLESSED  IS  THE  KING  WHO  COMES  IN  THE  NAME  OF  THE  LORD”……WHAT  A  WEEK  THAT  WAS  AHEAD  FOR  OUR  LORD  AND  SAVIOR  JESUS  CHRIST…… THIS  DAY  WAS  THE  BEGINNING  OF  THE  WEEK  THAT  FATHER  GOD  HAD  SENT  HIM  TO  EARTH  FOR……. OH,  WHAT  LOVE  BOTH  OF  THEM  EXHIBITED.  GOD  SOOO  LOVED  THE  WORLD  THAT  HE  SENT  HIS  ONLY  SON, JESUS…… “JESUS  HUMBLED  HIMSELF  AND  BECAME  OBEDIENT  TO  THE  POINT  OF  DEATH…. EVEN  THE  DEATH  OF  THE  CROSS”    

JUST  MONTHS  AGO  AT  CHRISTMAS  ….WE  CELEBRATED  HIS  BIRTH…… HOW  HE  CAME  TO  EARTH . . . .   WAS  BORN  AND  LAID  IN  A  MANGER  (A  FEEDING  TROUGH  FOR  ANIMALS)…. HE  LIVED  A  SINLESS  LIFE…. BUT  WAS  BETRAYED  BY  ONE  OF  HIS  DISCIPLES  FOR  30  PIECES  OF  SILVER….. DURING  A  PHONY  TRIAL…. HE  WAS  BEATEN….. SPAT  UPON….. HAIR  PLUCKED FROM  HIS  BEARD……. MOCKED….. WAS  CONDEMNED  TO  DIE….. HAD  A  CROWN  OF  THORNS  PLACE  ON  HIS  HEAD …… SUFFERED  HUMILIATION…… AND  WAS  NAILED  TO  A  CROSS  WHERE  HE  SUFFERED  EXCRUCIATING  PAIN  FOR  US…. THAT  WAS  THE  MEASURE  OF  HIS  LOVE.   WHEN  JESUS  CRIED  OUT  “IT  IS  FINISHED”….. MEANING  “IT  IS  DONE”…. AND  HUNG  HIS  HEAD  AND  DIED…..  HE  HAD  DONE  WHAT  FATHER  GOD  HAS  ASKED  OF  HIM.

JOHN  17:4  ~   I  HAVE  GLORIFIED  YOU  ON  THE  EARTH.  I  HAVE  FINISHED  THE  WORK  WHICH  YOU  HAVE  GIVEN  ME  TO  DO.

OH…. BUT  HE  DIDN’T  JUST  DIE….. AS  PASTOR  E.V.  HILL  WOULD  SAY…. SUNDAY’S  COMIN’… AND  HE  GOT  UP  FROM  JUST  AS  HE  SAID  HE  WOULD….. HE  CONQUERED  DEATH,  HELL  AND  THE  GRAVE… AND  BECAUSE  OF  THAT…. WE  SHALL  ALSO  RISE….. HE  SHOWED  THAT  HE  HAD  POWER  OVER  SIN…. HE  CONQUERED  DEATH  THROUGH  THE  RESURRECTION…… WHICH  IS  THE  CORNERSTONE  OF  OUR  CHRISTIAN  FAITH   AND  WITH  HISTORICAL  FACTS  TO  SUPPORT  IT  ….. SEE,  IF  HE  HAS  NOT  RISEN….. OUR  FAITH  IS  FUTILE….. BUT,  HE  DID!….  HE  IS  RISEN …. HE  IS  RISEN  INDEED!   AND  IS  ALIVE  FOREVERMORE.

I  LOVE  WHEN  I  CAN  MINISTER  TO  A  GROUP  OF  LADIES….. IT  WAS  IN   PALM  DESERT…. THEY  MEET  ONCE  A  MONTH….. THERE  WERE  OVER  50  PRESENT…. MY  DEAR  FRIEND  MS.  GWEN  SPOKE  ON  “THE  BRIDE  OF  CHRIST”…… A  POWERFUL  MESSAGE!…… THERE  WAS  A  BEAUTIFUL  DOLL  DRESSED  AS  A  BRIDE….

BUT  OVER  HER  HEAD  WAS  A  BLACK  SCARF….. WE  WERE  TOLD  THAT  SIN  HAD  US  COVERED  LIKE  A   DARK  CLOUD  BEFORE  WE  MET  JESUS…. SHE  LIFTED  THE  BLACK  SCARF  AND  UNDERNEATH  WAS  A  RED  SCARF  WHICH  WE  WERE  TOLD  THAT  WHEN  WE  ASK  JESUS  TO  COME  LIVE  IN  OUR  HEARTS…. TO  FORGIVE  US  OF  ALL  OUR  SINS…… WE  WERE  THEN  COVERED  BY  THE  BLOOD  OF  JESUS…… THAT  SCARF  WAS  REMOVED  AND  THERE  STOOD  THE  MOST  BEAUTIFUL  BRIDAL  DOLL …. STANDING  READY  TO  MEET  HER  GROOM…. SHE  TOLD  US  THE  ENTIRE  STORY…… HOW  A  MARRIAGE  HAPPENED  IN  THE  BIBLE  DAYS….. THE  ENDING  BEING…..

ISN’T  THAT  AWESOME?  OF  COURSE  WE  WERE  ENCOURAGED  TO  LIVE  IN  EXPECTANCY…… BECAUSE  WE  DO  NOT  KNOW  THE  DAY  NOR  THE  HOUR  WHEN  OUR  ETERNAL  BRIDEGROOM  WITH  RETURN  FOR  US….   HALLEUJAH!  THE  MEETING  WAS  THE  DAY  BEFORE  ST  PATRICKS’  DAY…….
