Jesus Is The Lamb

March 26 

The LORD’S Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, (PALM SUNDAY), occurred only days before His crucifixion and is recorded in Matthew 21:1 – 9, (also in John 12:12 – 16). This event was predicted by the prophet Zechariah in the 6th century B.C. Lets take a look at some of the features in Zechariah’s prophecies, and how they are fulfilled in Messiah Jesus.

Zechariah 9:9 — “Your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” — Fulfilled by Jesus during His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. (Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40; John 12:12-19)9:10 — “He shall speak peace to the nations; His dominion shall be ‘from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.’” — Jesus established the covenant of grace which is available for Jews and Gentiles alike; the church has expanded from sea to sea, and the gospel has been preached all over the world. (This verse is practically a quotation of Psalm 72:8, which is about the Lord’s Anointed King.)9:11 — ““As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.” — Through the sacrifice of Christ and the atonement provided through His blood, God has liberated those who were trapped in the pit of sin and death, separated from God.9:12 — “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.” — Jesus will compensate those persecuted and killed for their testimony of faith. He calls all those persecuted for the sake of the gospel to maintain their hope and faith in God, the ever-present refuge.9:14-16 — “Then the Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord God will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south. The Lord of hosts will defend them; They shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; They shall be filled with blood like basins, like the corners of the altar. The Lord their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land.”
— This part can be summed up in three words: HIS KINGDOM COMES!9:17 — “For how great is its goodness and how great its beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive, and new wine the young women.”— Bread and wine, the elements of the Lord’s Supper in the New Covenant which was established through Jesus blood give joy to God’s people, reminding them always that the price has been paid for their sins.Did you know there is one other time in the Bible that people wave palm branches and cheer Jesus? It’s in heaven….
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
(Revelation 7:9–10)

HOSANNA! BLESSED IS HE WHO CAME! 
BLESSED IS HE WHO IS COMING AGAIN!

THE GREATEST FATHER OF ALL

 BECOMING A CHILD OF GOD
*  Acts 4:10, 12 “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole….Neither is there salvation in any other:  for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
*  John 1:11-12 “(Jesus) came unto His own, and His own received Him not.  But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the (children) of God, even to them that believe on His name.” 
*  Romans 10:9-10 – “…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
*  Galatians 3:26 – “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD BY ADOPTION

*  Romans 8:15 – “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
*  Ephesians 1:2-6 – “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:  having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in The Beloved.”

AS HIS ADOPTED CHILDREN, WE HAVE GOD AS OUR FATHER

*  Matthew 5:16 – “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”
*  Matthew 6:1 – “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them:  otherwise ye have no reward of your Father Who is in heaven.”
*  Matthew 7:11 – “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?”
*  Matthew 18:14 – “Even so it is not the will of your Father Who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
*  Luke 6:36 – “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”
*  Luke 12:32 – “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
*  John 20:17 – “Jesus saith unto her, Touch Me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Father: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your God.”

SOMETIMES, IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN!

*  1 John 3:1-2 – “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the (children) of God:  therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.

In Honor of Mothers Everywhere.


Jesus secured His mothers future on the cross. He deeply loved Mary. Mothers are beyond measure.


26When Jesus then saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 
27Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household.John 19:26-27

14368743_1208642472584248_1903782319690324442_nBeloved Brothers And Sisters ~

As I was just rushing to pick up Julian from school, I began to feel the hunger in the people as I passed by person after person in their cars and in the streets. And as I looked at each person passing by, God began to form my thoughts and I could feel His Anger rising as He let me realize that their stomachs would most likely be fed by the hands of the enemy rather than the hands of the servants of God… God was revealing to me the deprivation and emptiness in people, and in that moment I began to pray, “Jesus… feed Your People. Show us how to be the answer, how to HAVE the Answer; how to SPREAD Truth…” And in the midst of all the hustling to pick up Julian on time from school, God was giving me a disturbing vision of our church (the Church in general) – Outwardly welcoming yet inwardly barred shut…

I began to feel the weight of God’s Problem with the Church settle in the pit of my stomach as I realized that God’s Church has become completely IRRELEVANT. In fact, it seems like a breathing hypocrisy… I was smacked in the face with the disturbing REALITY as I ran from my parked car the rest of the way to school to meet Julian on time… Churches outwardly welcoming yet inwardly barred shut! In me Jesus was crying, “I AM ALIVE!” yet the hearts of His People are barred shut, the window to their souls locked and church parking lots empty. Looks pretty dead to me! I felt sick as I realized that God is filling the Church with His SPIRIT and asking us to go feed His People with TRUTH, LIFE, LOVE, WISDOM, DIRECTION and POWER, yet the doors are barred shut and the windows are dark and closed…

So when the woman ready to commit suicide wants to reach her hand out one last time, who will be the one to fill it? The enemy seems to have a better grasp on relevant ministry than we do. I think something in the way we view CHURCH needs to shift DRASTICALLY and IMMEDIATELY… If we have the HIGHEST, MOST HOLY, OMINISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, SPIRIT as our GUIDE, why aren’t we offering a Spiritual hand of guidance to the hungry and the needy? Are we asleep? Are we numb? Are we hypocrites? Why put a WELCOME sign on the door to the Church (so to speak) if we are going to bar up the entire porch so that the dirty hands of the homeless won’t be able to touch it and mess up the new paint job?

Now with Julian in tow and after sharing this with him, he looked at me and said, “What if we could feed the spirit of each person by whispering the name of Jesus as we walk by each one. Maybe their spirits would grab His Name and begin to long for Him…” For the rest of the walk back to the car Julian said, “JESUS” as he passed each person. I laughed as I realized my little guy is just as OBSESSED with spreading the LOVE of God as I am! Truly a moment when God was speaking wisdom through and out of the mouth of babes!

God, help us. Wake us. Show us the way to invade the spiritual powers of this culture. Let the Church become RELEVANT. Let the Living God truly explode with LIFE out of the servants who have chosen to be the hands and feet of Jesus… Let us have RELEVANT FAITH so that those who are hungry will be able to GRAB onto it…

God, we pray that Your FAITHFULNESS will fill us with FAITH to step toward the desires you have for our lives. Give us a CAUSE to fight for YOUR NAME. Let the history of Your VICTORY in our lives be on our lips daily as we face the giants. Let YOUR NAME be magnified in us ,as Your Servants choose to fulfill the vows and covenants we made with YOU… to KNOW YOU… In Your Holy and Precious Name Jesus we pray… Amein… (shared of my journal)10440802_696494227073693_7724385406213002777_n13001092_1143066769048122_7200995702218758525_n

SOME WORDS ABOUT US


WHAT DO YOU THINK? – We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, “Jesus is Lord,” you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

ARE YOU READY FOR WAR? 

  • When my feet hit the ground I like to let the enemy to know- I AM READY! I plead the blood of Jesus over me. I put my armor on and I VISUALIZE the BATTLE I am walking into! I am battling for the men and women without HOPE. I am battling for the divorced couples. I am battling for those in sex-slavery! I will not be SILENT, when GOD created me to SPEAK OUT! I want to make sure HIS LIGHT is shining through me. We are the SALT and LIGHT of the earth- ALSO know as CITY, COUNTRY and WORLD CHANGER! Let’s go to war for souls! AMEN!
