Matthew 21:1–11 NLT
As Jesus and the disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to the town of Bethphage on the Mount of Olives. Jesus sent two of them on ahead. “Go into the village over there,” he said. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will immediately let you take them.” This took place to fulfill the prophecy that said, “Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’ ” The two disciples did as Jesus commanded. They brought the donkey and the colt to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it. Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting, “Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Praise God in highest heaven!” The entire city of Jerusalem was in an uproar as he entered. “Who is this?” they asked. And the crowds replied, “It’s Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

John 17:11–26 The Message
For I’m no longer going to be visible in the world; They’ll continue in the world While I return to you. Holy Father, guard them as they pursue this life That you conferred as a gift through me, So they can be one heart and mind As we are one heart and mind. As long as I was with them, I guarded them In the pursuit of the life you gave through me; I even posted a night watch. And not one of them got away, Except for the rebel bent on destruction (the exception that proved the rule of Scripture). Now I’m returning to you. I’m saying these things in the world’s hearing So my people can experience My joy completed in them. I gave them your word; The godless world hated them because of it, Because they didn’t join the world’s ways, Just as I didn’t join the world’s ways. I’m not asking that you take them out of the world But that you guard them from the Evil One. They are no more defined by the world Than I am defined by the world. Make them holy—consecrated—with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth. In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world. I’m consecrating myself for their sakes So they’ll be truth-consecrated in their mission. I’m praying not only for them But also for those who will believe in me Because of them and their witness about me. The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So they’ll be as unified and together as we are— I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this one-ness, And give the godless world evidence That you’ve sent me and loved them In the same way you’ve loved me. Father, I want those you gave me To be with me, right where I am, So they can see my glory, the splendor you gave me, Having loved me Long before there ever was a world. Righteous Father, the world has never known you, But I have known you, and these disciples know That you sent me on this mission. I have made your very being known to them— Who you are and what you do— And continue to make it known, So that your love for me Might be in them Exactly as I am in them.
John 17:11

REAL LOVE

Do Me a favor Look at someone better looking than you and ask them Have you found it???
I’m talking bout REAL LOVE
This Text Points Out something real important to me...
Matthew 21:2 NLT
“Go into the village over there,” he said. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them to me.
Matthew 21.
Jesus Is in Human Form yet he knew where a
Donkey (jackass) & a Colt (A young foolish fellow; a person without experience or stability …)
Scripture tell me
The Message Chapter 6

“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

Matthew 6:28 NLT
“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,
The Message Chapter 6

27–29  “Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

30–33  “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

34  “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

That’s Real Love
So Wait You still don’t get it...
If Jesus while he was human knew exactly where the donkey and the colt would be and what the owner would say.. Don’t you think he knows where you are right at this very moment....
-35
So Lets get it....
Matthew 6:28 NLT
“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,
What are you currently tied too........
Is it wrong information
Is it Trust Issues
Is It Rejection....
Is It Unforgiveness
How Long are going to stay tied to that mess..
How Long are going to stay tied to that mess.. (does your excuses work for you?)
I have Come in the Name of Jesus to untie you.
because the Lord Has Need Of You...
Some of you are stuck in tradition.. Old laid back un-effective man made tradition..
See some of you stuck because you never got truly delivered thats why you can’t love your enemy.. You ain’t saved.. You rock with the Son of Perdition...
Jesus disciples didn’t need permission to set them free they told the owners The Lord Has need of them...
Look at your neighbor that forgot to use deodorant and tell them God has need of thee so lose here…
depression, anxiety, worry, doubt & fear are weapons the enemy uses against us.. But they only work when we let them.....
I dare you to shout that ain’t going to work....
3. Jesus prayed on earth a prayer that we seldom pay attention to..
The Message Chapter 17

Now I’m returning to you.

I’m saying these things in the world’s hearing

So my people can experience

My joy completed in them.

I gave them your word;

The Message Chapter 17

The godless world hated them because of it,

Because they didn’t join the world’s ways,

Just as I didn’t join the world’s ways.

I’m not asking that you take them out of the world

But that you guard them from the Evil One.

They are no more defined by the world

Than I am defined by the world.

The Message Chapter 17

Make them holy—consecrated—with the truth;

Your word is consecrating truth.

In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world,

I give them a mission in the world.

Sanctify them thru thy truth.. Sanctify means to make Holy, to separate..
Jesus prays before his crucifixon that his disciples will be a holy people..
Hebrews 12:14 KJV 1900
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Hebrews 12
The Message Chapter 17

I’m consecrating myself for their sakes

So they’ll be truth-consecrated in their mission.

Jesus sanctified himself by setting himself apart to do the will of God and die on the cross . Jesus suffered on calvary in order that his followers might be separated from the world and set apart for God..
The Message Chapter 17

I’m praying not only for them

But also for those who will believe in me

Because of them and their witness about me.

The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind—

Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you,

So they might be one heart and mind with us.

we have to many people in the body of Christ fighting against the Will and prayer or God… Anti-Christ..
a personal opponent of Christ expected to appear before the end of the world. "the battle between Christ and the Antichrist"
a person or force seen as opposing Christ or the Christian Church.
The Message Chapter 17

Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me.

The same glory you gave me, I gave them,

So they’ll be as unified and together as we are—

I in them and you in me.

Then they’ll be mature in this one-ness,

And give the godless world evidence

That you’ve sent me and loved them

In the same way you’ve loved me.

But he loved me more than i have ever loved myself… And i declare whatever is still trying to hold me from reaching my fullest potential has to be broken off my life today..
