PALM SUNDAY MATT 21:1-11

  • TODAY IS PALM SUNDAY,IT IS THE SUNDAY BEFORE   THE LORD’S SUFFERING AND CRUCIFIXION.
  •   TODAY  WE REMEMBER THE LORD’S ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM  RIDING ON A DONKEY ACCOMPANIED BY HIS APOSTLES
  • THERE HE WAS GREETED WITH ENTHUSIASM AND GLADNESS BY THE PEOPLE,VERSE 8-11
  • THE SIGNIFICANCE OF PALM SUNDAY RESTS IN THE FULFILLMENT OF ONE OF THE PROPHECIES ABOUT JESUS CHRIST ,ZECH   9:9
  • “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”
  • I HOPE YOU ALL REMEMBER THAT THIS WAS OUR ANCHOR 2015
  • ANY PROPHECY ABOUT CHRIST THAT IS FULFILLED SIMPLY REMINDS US THAT EVERY PROPHECY ABOUT HIM WILL BE FULFILLED
  • ESPECIALLY ALL THE PROPHECIES ABOUT HIS COMING BACK TO EARTH TO RAPTURE THE CHURCH
  • AND THEN RETURN  PHYSICALLY AFTER THE RAPTURE TO  REIGN ON THIS EARTH FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
  • HOSANNA TO THE SON OF DAVID!” THE PEOPLE SHOUTED.
  • HE IS WELCOMED AS A KING WHO WOULD BRING THEM GOOD TIDINGS OF JOY AND PEACE.
  • HE IS ACCLAIMED AS THE MESSIAH WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
  • HOWEVER,  THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WELCOMED HIM WERE THE ONES WHO REBUKED HIM AND EVENTUALLY SENTENCED HIM TO DEATH.
  • THERE WAS NO FAIR TRIAL FOR JESUS
  • PEOPLE CONNIVED AND THREW FALSE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HIM IN ORDER FOR HIM TO BE CRUCIFIED.
  • PEOPLE ACCUSED HIM OF CRIMES HE DID NOT COMMIT
  • . IN SPITE OF ALL THESE, JESUS WILLINGLY SUBMITTED HIMSELF TO TRIAL AND SCRUTINY
  • ONLY A FEW WORDS WERE UTTERED BY HIM. HE DID NOT REACT VIOLENTLY, NOR DID HE THINK OF RETALIATING.
  • HE FACED EVERYTHING WITH ABSOLUTE FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD.
  • HE KNEW THAT HE WAS ON THE SIDE OF THE TRUTH AND LOVE.OF GOD
  • JESUS HAS SHOWN US THAT THE PATH TO TRUE PEACE IS SUBMISSION TO THE WILL OF GOD.
  • IT IS ONLY IN SUBMITTING OUR ENTIRE SELVES AND OUR ENTIRE LIVES TO GOD THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO ATTAIN REAL PEACE AND FREEDOM.
  • TODAY, PEOPLE THINK THAT SUBMISSION TO THE WILL OF GOD LIMITS OR DIMINISHES OUR FREEDOM TO DO THE THINGS WE LIKE.
  • HOWEVER, JESUS PRESENTS THE CONTRARY
  • IT IS BY GIVING UP YOUR VERY LIFE THAT YOU WILL GAIN THE FULLNESS OF LIFE.
  • INSTEAD OF TRYING TO CONTROL OUR LIVES AND OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES AS WELL, LET US HUMBLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT GOD KNOWS BEST
  • . BY PLACING OUR LIVES IN THE HANDS OF GOD, WE KNOW THAT EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT TO BE GOOD.
  • AS WE ENTER THIS  HOLY WEEK, AS WE PREPARE FOR THE CELEBRATION OF THE  MYSTERY OF CHRIST’S SUFFERING, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION, LET US LOOK UP TO JESUS CHRIST  HEB 12:1-15
  • LET US ALSO LOOK UP TO  THE PEOPLE WHO STOOD BY JESUS AS HE ENDURES SUFFERINGS AND PAIN ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY
  • THINK OF  THE WOMEN WHO WEPT AS HE WAS LED TO THE CROSS
  • , THE CENTURION WHO LATER CONFESSED THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH
  • PEOPLE LIKE JOHN THE BELOVED DISCIPLE, AND MARY, THE  MOTHER OF JESUS
  • ALL OF THEM PLACED  THEIR LIVES IN GOD’S HAND AT THAT MOMENT OF PAIN EMBARRASSMENT AND ABSOLUTE CONFUSION
  • .HOW COULD THIS MAN WHO CALLED HIMSELF THE SON OF GOD ,THE MESSIAH JUST BE SENTENCED TO A TERRIBLE DEATH JUST BY ORDINARY HUMANS?
  • COULD THIS REALLY BE THE MESSIAH?
  • WHEN JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS IN PRISONED BY HEROD, HE WAS TEMPTED TO DOUBT THE MESSIAH MATT 11:1-6
  • HEB 12:1 CALLS  THESE PEOPLE  A” CLOUD OF WITNESSES
  • MAYBE YOU ARE GOING THROUGH SOME PAINS AND SUFFERINGS THAT MAKE YOU QUESTION YOUR FAITH AND TRUST IN CHRIST
  • BRETHREN DON’T QUESTION YOUR GOD’S LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS TO
  • , YOU  MUST ONLY  DOUBT YOUR DOUBT
  • THE TRAGEDY IN CHRISTIANITY TODAY IS THAT PEOPLE HAVE STOPPED TO REALLY CELEBRATE CHRIST AND FOLLOW HIM
  • WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE TRIALS AND CHALLENGES .WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO  PERSEVERE AND ENDURE WITH LONGSUFFERING ANYMORE
  • .IN SHORT WE JUST  DON’T UNDERSTAND  ENDURANCE AND PATIENCE IN TRIBULATION
  • LET’S LISTEN TO APOSTLE PETER A LITTLE BIT 1 PETER 1:3-9 ;2:19-24;4:1,7:12-19
  • 1 PETER 1:3-9 TELLS US THAT WE HAVE AN INHERITANCE THAT CANNOT BE LOST
  • IT CANNOT FADE AWAY AND IT IS RESERVED IN HEAVEN
  • THAT WE ARE  KEPT OR PRESERVED BY THE POWER OF GOD
  • THAT THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE GREATLY REJOICE ALL THE TIME
  • THOUGH FOR NOW WE ARE IN HEAVINEES OF SPIRIT BECAUSE OF SO MANY  TRIALS AND TEMPTATION
  • WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ALL THESE TRIALS OF OUR FAITH? READ VERSE 7-9
  • EVERY GENUINE FAITH IN CHRIST MUST PASS THROUGH FIRE TO BE CLEANSED AND PRESERVED
  • JUST THE SAME  WAY YOU PURIFY AND PRESERVE GOLD
  • 1 PETER 2:19 -23 TELLS ME AND YOU THAT IF YOU ARE TRULY FOLLOWING CHRIST IN HIS STEPS
  • YOU MUST EXPERIENCE SOME DEGREE OF SUFFERING  EVEN IF YOU ARE INNOCENT
  • IT IS CALLED IDENTIFICATION WITH CHRIST IN HIS SUFFERINGS
  • NOW HERE IS THE DEAL,IF YOU SUFFER WITH HIM YOU WILL ALSO REIGN WITH HIM 2 TIM:27-13

“Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.  Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:  Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.  Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:  If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:  If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.”

  • STUDY THE BOOK OF ACTS AND SEE HOW THE DISCIPLES SUFFERD.ACTS 5:27-42
  • NOW LOOK AT VERSES 41-42 AND COMPARE TO WHAT JESUS SAYS IN MATT 5:10-12
  • NOW ARE YOU REJOICING OR LAMENTING? 
  • IF YOU DON’T APPLY CHRIST’S TEACHINGS TO YOUR LIFE YOU WILL SUFFER AND BE CONFUSED 1 PETER 4:14-19
  • AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT SUFFERING AS A THIEF ,A MURDERER,A BUSYBODY OR A WITCH OR  AN EVIL DOER APOSTLE PETER SAYS  DON’T BE ASHAMED
  • ,HE SAYS JUST GIVE GOD GLORY ,JUST GIVE HIM PRAISE AND MOVE ON
  • HE SAYS COMMIT THE KEEPING OF YOUR SOUL TO YOUR FAITHFUL CREATOR AND CONTINUE TO DO GOOD
  • APOSTLE JAMES SAYS THE SAME IN JAMES 5:7-11
  • APOSTLE SAYS IN ROMANS 5:1-6 THEREFORE BEING JUSTIFIED BY FAITH, WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST  BY WHOM ALSO WE HAVE ACCESS BY FAITH INTO THIS GRACE WHEREIN WE STAND, AND REJOICE IN HOPE OF THE GLORY OF GOD.  AND NOT ONLY SO, BUT WE GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS ALSO: KNOWING THAT TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE  AND PATIENCE, EXPERIENCE; AND EXPERIENCE, HOPE:   AND HOPE MAKETH NOT ASHAMED; BECAUSE THE LOVE OF GOD IS SHED ABROAD IN OUR HEARTS BY THE HOLY GHOST WHICH IS GIVEN UNTO US. ¶  FOR WHEN WE WERE YET WITHOUT STRENGTH, IN DUE TIME CHRIST DIED FOR THE UNGODLY”
  • WE ARE FULLY INFORMED OF THE PURPOSE OF ALL THESE SUFFERINGS  :TRAINING.
  • TRAINING IN PATIENCE,EXPERIENCE,HOPE,AND WHEN WE PASS OUR TRAINING WE ARE FILLED WITH THE LOVE OF GOD
  • WE ARE NO LONGER PERPLEXED ,CONFUSED OR ASHAMED
  • WE ARE NOW QUALIFIED TO HELP OTHERS HAVING GAINED SOME DEGREE OF EXPERIENCE
  • THIS IS WHAT THE SUFFERINGS OF CHRIST TEACHES US
  • THIS IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS HOLY WEEK
  • NOT PUTTING PALM LEAVES ON OUR DOORS IN THE SHAPE OF THE CROSS
  • OR GOING TO THE STORES TO BUY EASTER EGGS AND ALL THOSE RELIGIOUS PRACTICES
  • THAT NEITHER SAVE NOR ESTABLISH OUR SOULS.
  • THEY ARE JUST SATANIC VANITIES PUT IN PLACE TO UNDERMINE WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE FOR US
  • THEY ARE THERE TO MAKE US FORGET THE IMPORTANCE OF FOLLOWING THE LORD CLOSELY ENOUGH TO BECOME LIKE HIM
  • YOU MUST BE SAVED AND LEARN TO REJOICE WHEN THE TRIBULATIONS ARRIVE,
  • TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS  WILL SURELY COME OUR WAY ACTS 14:21-22

And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

  • BUT DAVID SAYS GOD WILL DELIVER US FROM THEM ALL PSALM 34 18-19
  • “THE LORD IS NIGH UNTO THEM THAT ARE OF A BROKEN HEART; AND SAVETH SUCH AS BE OF A CONTRITE SPIRIT.  MANY ARE THE AFFLICTIONS OF THE RIGHTEOUS: BUT THE LORD DELIVERETH HIM OUT OF THEM ALL.  HE KEEPETH ALL HIS BONES: NOT ONE OF THEM IS BROKEN.  EVIL SHALL SLAY THE WICKED: AND THEY THAT HATE THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL BE DESOLATE.  THE LORD REDEEMETH THE SOUL OF HIS SERVANTS: AND NONE OF THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM SHALL BE DESOLATE.”
  • . WE PRAY THAT DURING THIS SEASON, THE MERCY OF GOD WILL ENABLE US TO BE MORE TRUSTING AND MORE SUBMISSIVE TO HIS HOLY WILL
  • IF YOU WILL ASK GOD FOR GRACE TO BE LIKE OUR JESUS CHRIST WHOSE PAINS AND SUFFERINGS FOR US ALL WE REMEMBER THIS WEEK
  • YOU WILL START TO ALWAYS  REJOICE AND BE FILLED WITH EXPERIENCE AND HOPE
  • YOU WILL GROW IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST
  • YOUR PEACE AND LOVE WILL INCREASE
  • YOU WILL BECOME VICTORIOUS AND GREAT AND COMFORTED ALL ROUND
  • ABOVE ALL,THE LORD GOD  WILL DELIVER YOU  LIKE HE DELIVERED JESUS FROM THE POWERS OF THE GRAVE AND MAKE YOU GREAT
  • HE WILL FILL YOUR MOUTH WITH LAUGHTER AS HE TOLD US THIS YERA.PSALM 126
  • NOW CONSIDER 2SAMUEL 5:6-7  THE ORIGINAL INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM THOUGHT THAT EVEN IF THE BLIND AND THE LAME WERE DEFENDING THAT CITY THAT DAVID WOULD NOT TAKE IT
  • VERSE  7 SAYS NEVERTHELESS DAVID TOOK IT
  • WHAT DOES NEVERTHELESS MEAN?
  • IT SIMPLY MEANS,NOT WITHSTANDING,IN SPITE OF,NO MATTER  THE DEGREE OF OPPOSITIONS,
  • NO MATTER THE PAINS AND DIFFICULTIES,NO MATTER THE CHALLENGES,
  • YOU WILL SURELY LAUGH AT LAST,YOU WILL OVERCOME
  • DAVID WAS MOCKED THAT HE COULD NOT TAKE THE CITY,
  • BUT INSPITE OF THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBILITY  THE SAME PLACE BECAME HIS INTERNATIONAL HEAD QUARTERS
  • HIS LIFE DISAPPOINTED HIS ENEMIES
  • NOW NOTE THIS BRETHREN IN THE REST OF THIS YEAR
  • THE GOD OF HEAVEN   SHALL WRITE A NEVERTHELESS IN YOUR HISTORY IN JESUS NAME
  • IT SHALLBE SAID EVEN THOUGH THIS PERSON WAS BORN INTO POVERTY,NEVERTHELESS HE IS A WEALTHY AND COMFORTABLE MAN
  • IT SHALL BE SAID ALTHOUGH THIS PERSON WAS DISAPPOINTED AND RIDICULED BY MANY
  • ,NEVERTHELESS HE  IS HIGHLY FAVOURED BY GOD AND HE IS AN OVERCOMER
  • IDECREE BY DECREE OF HEAVEN THAT YOUR MIRACLE NEVERTHELESS STORIES ,SHALL BEGIN TO MANIFEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS
  • IT SHALL BE SAID THAT EVEN THOUGH THE ENEMIES ATTACKS WERE  TERRIBLE NEVERTHELESS YOU ARE MORE THAN CONQUEROR
  • THIS PERSON NEVER HAD A UNIVERSITY DEGREE NEVERTHELESS  HE IS EMPLOYING GRADUATES NOW
  • THIS PERSON WAS HATED BY WITCHES AND WIZARD NEVERTHELESS HE HAS TRIUMPHED OVER THERE CURSES
  • PETER BETRAYED JESUS NEVERTHELESS HE TURNED AROUND AND WAS MIGHTILY USED BY GOD
