Mark 11:8-10, "And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches from the fields. And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, Hosanna! Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the LORD." It was not just a Triumphal entry, JESUS came with a purpose this day. HE drove out those who bought and sold in the temple and over turned tables of money changers. Then HE began to teach and everyone listened and the chief priests and the scribes heard and began to find away to destroy HIM. JESUS taught that the temple was a house of prayer for all nations. The entrance had been blocked to the Gentiles because of those who bought and sold in the temple, and the money changers were conducting business. The people shouting HOSANNA were wanting a King to destroy their enemies and give them security. JESUS came to give them true peace and security but not in the way they thought or wanted; THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE TO IT! PRAYER - FATHER, we pray that the HOLY SPIRIT guides us to wisdom in understanding the scriptures that are GOD breathed. MEDITATION - Am I just asking JESUS to give me what I want? THOUGHT - Do I stand in the crowd shouting praises; or do I perform praises? WRITE - Palm Sunday, THERE IS JUST SO MUCH MORE TO IT!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
