Daily Fountain 2017 - Behond Your King Comes





Sunday April 9
Palm Sunday

Bible Reading:     Matt. 21: 1 - 17

Topic:         Behold Your King Comes

This passage falls into the last days of Jesus' Ministry on earth.

Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a common animal meant for burden bearing (Gen. 49: 11) to bear the burden of men's sin.

The people who expected a Political Deliverer from  Roman oppression gave Him a Royal Reception.

The cry of the people - "Hosanna" - means 'save us now'

He did indeed save but not in the way they thought He would.

He eventually died on the Cross and ascended to the Right Hand of God.

He will ultimately reign over all kings and nations.

The triumphal entry was followed by Jesus' second cleansing of the Temple (John 2: 13-16).

Corrupt money changers used exorbitant exchange rates and sacrificial doves were sold at great profit. All these took place in the only place where the Gentiles were allowed to stay and worship.

If you are in business, do you deal unfairly?
Let the Word of God 'drive out' your corrupt dealings.

Is there any way our activities in Church constitute a hindrance to those who seek to worship God as the Gentiles did?

Jesus is still ready to save, heal and cleanse if only we will cry to Him.

Let's take advantage of His readiness to save and ask Him today.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, thank You for coming to save me. Please prepare me for Your Second Coming, Amen

Memory verse:   Matt. 21 : 9

"And the multitude that went before and that followed cried saying, Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest"
