This Week's Sermon ( 4-16-19 )

" Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. 
And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. 
And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. 
And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 
And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 
And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. 
And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. 
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; 
Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 
And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. 
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. "   Luke 19:30-40

I know God could have caused the rocks to praise Jesus as He was going to Jerusalem, nearing His crucifixion.

God can do anything.

Another thing to keep in mind is that I reckon that colt did not know he was carrying God around, his own creator.

Isaiah said;

" Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. "   Luke 3:8

God amazes me.

As I watch nature, it is amazing to see what Jesus has done.

I've seen incredibly small insects fly near me but recently I saw one that was so small I could not believe how he existed. 

As vast as Jesus is, being God, I wondered how He could see to create this insect I saw that was so small, give it a brain, eyesight, hearing and feelings.

My mind is boggled at what God has done.

And this same God died for you and me.

" And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. "   Revelation 5:9-10

Always keep your faith in Jesus and remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in Jesus who are being persecuted because of their faith in Jesus and also remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in Jesus who are suffering in catastrophic conditions of all kinds.

There is a lot going on in the world today.

John ended the book of Revelation with these words;

" He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.  "   Revelation 22:20-21

I wish Jesus would come today.
