My Title: How Do YOU See Jesus?


My Verse: 9-10

"9 And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, 'Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!'"

My Response:

How do you SEE Jesus? - Jesus enters on a donkey (fulfilling prophecy) the promised Messiah. (The entire town of Jerusalem packed to the gills with Jews from all over to celebrate the Passover Seder) They all come out to shout Hosanna! - They want Jesus to be their savior... as they want to be saved. They want another Moses to rise up and free them from the Romans. To establish a forever kingdom where they reign forever. When He fails to be this for them they turn on Him in days and cry "crucify Him." - Daniel, how often are you expecting Jesus to be YOUR god instead of your GOD?

Those that want to have a powerful god who answers their selfish desires will miss Him completely.

Those that stand to gain from Jesus' story (My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations) will be removed by reproof... but also with teaching.
