Posts Tagged ‘Palm Sunday’

 

With the advent of Holy Week, there’s going to be a slight delay in posting all of the General Conference talks. We’ll post 1-2 sporadically throughout this week, but our main focus right now is the importance of biblical events leading up to our Lord’s death on the Cross for us! Praise His Holy Name!

Palm Sunday is of course, one of the most important days in all of time. It marks the day when Jesus finally allowed for people to worship Him as King. Up until that day there were numerous times people had tried to label Him as King, but those were done with the intent to do Him harm, and He always said, ‘It is not my time’.

John 6:15; “When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.”

John 7:30, 44; “Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. 44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.”

John 8:59; “Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

John 10:39; “Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand.”

The timing of His announcement was solely in His hands, for He had come to do His Father’s will, and to fulfill scripture. Because He’s God, He controlled all things

. We can see how cool this is when we look back at historical events found in secular writings, and how they’re mentioned in the Bible as well! Check out the following passages –

John 12:12-13; “On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

 The events of Holy Week are so meaningful that not mentioning them is tantamount to ignoring the fact Jesus left heaven, donned human flesh, and died, so we could live.

Quite sadly, that’s how I lived the first thirty years of my life while calling myself a Christian. Twenty-three years ago I was more concerned about what to put in my kids’ Easter baskets than I was about what I’d put in their hearts about Jesus.

Today we’re asking for Christians to pray for the Mormon people. At the time of this writing, the LDS Church just wrapped up their three day, bi-annual ‘General Conference’. A cursory glance over several of their numerous talks revealed the same story.

Hosannah – Oh Save Us! 

Holy Week01John 11:55-57, 12:1, 12-15; “And the Jews’ Passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? 57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.”

12:1 “Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.”
