12 The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,
15“Fear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
sitting on a donkey’s colt!”
16 His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him.
17 The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness.
18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had done this sign.
19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.”
This is the beginning of Holy Week.
We wonder what Jesus would have felt to see the crowd give Jesus the homage due their King.
Jesus in one Gospel goes to His Temple and looks around and children gather to go give Him more praise. Even the babies.
Isaiah tells us Jesus was a man of sorrows. Jesus tells us in John 14,15,16 and 17 the thoughts of His Heart. Isaiah is correct, the government always was upon His Shoulders, trying to pull Him down. The Cross is usually suffocation.
And Jesus left us a record of exactly how HE felt about His own willingness to live our life and walk Grace upon Grace.
Jesus begins like this to tell us of His Life as He truly, truly feels:
Let not your hearts be troubled.
Believe in God; believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants
you have established strength
Jesus faces His Death with Strength. He is not just setting His face to Jerusalem to suffer and give us Life. Jesus is going to His Father and in His Words, "His Father and ours."
Should be difficult. This is our time to understand what Innocence of "See, Be Opened, Walk, Be Forgiven, Your Sins are forgiven, I will - be cleansed, Rise." The Goodness of Father God shown completely in Jesus.
We bring ourselves to Father God to think upon what was done to Jesus, for us to be clean enough to dwell with Father God. And suffer is what Jesus, Innocent Son of God, did. Mayo Clinic Doctors have examined what is known of crucifixion and the Words of Scripture to tell tell us of Jesus' Sacrifice.
Scriptures tell us to carry our Cross for Jesus.
The woman wearing the silver cross and blue shirt in the photo, kicked off an enormous debate in the U.K., in 2013, to be able to wear her cross. Many people said she should change jobs away from the airline. The courts upheld her right to her belief in Jesus and to wear the cross.
Audrey Jarvis, a liberal arts major, asked until she received permission to wear her cross necklace. Her boss at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California said no. Sonoma State University said, “It was absolutely an inappropriate action for him to make that request of her,” the representative said, noting that the school’s president, Ruben Arminana is trying, through Kashack, to reach Jarvis for an apology. She spoke up and spoke up to wear her cross.
5 years ago we said 1/3 of the World population is Christian, our largest Christian world. Today we worry about birth rates of Muslims and Christians. We are able to be merciful and speak up for our beliefs. Gentle. The birth rates of most Catholic nations are just as high as Muslim countries. The rest of the world is 12 to 16 babies as compared to 25 per 100 in the more populace religions.
Jesus said God overcomes the world. Let's pray more and take more reassurance from Father God being in charge.
When Our Holy and Heavenly Father sees the world,
He is determined to save the world through Jesus Christ, His Son.
This is Holy Week. Remember Jesus our Hero.
Our Abba, in Heaven,
Thy Kingdom Come,
Thy Will be done on earth as this is done in Heaven.
Give me this day!
My daily bread.
Forgive me my sins,
as I forgive those who sin against me.
Lead me not into temptation.
Deliver me from evil.
As Disciple John saw and wrote in Revelation,
because Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.
Holy is the Name of Jesus we pray in,
