Palm Sunday 2020

Matthew 21:1–11 ESV
1 Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” 4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, 5 “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’ ” 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. 8 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” 10 And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”

The Crowds were fixated on what THEY thought that God was doing

They wanted political salvation
They were concerned about the next 50 years of power rather than they next 5,000
Fast Forward and The Crowd leaves. Why? What THEY thought God was doing didn’ t happen. And because their dreams and desires didn’t happen they dropped out. The moment the world didn’t revolve around their little wish, they lost hope.

At some point you have to let go of what you thought God was doing and start living in what God is doing.

The people who were present at The Triumphant Entry has no idea that God had created them and positioned them for one of the most significant weeks in the history of the world.
Esther 4:14 ESV
14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Esther 4:14

You are in the middle of a supernatural God ordained moment.

Follow Through

Matthew 21:6 ESV
6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them.
If you fast forward, the difference between the crowd and the disciples was prolonged follow through.

It not what you do for a season that shapes you, it’s what you consistently.

Seasons create defined starting, growth, and ending point.
How do you know what Jesus is director you to do?
Know who is speaking
You learn his voice
Know his word
