Mark 11:1-19

Mark 11:1-19
Jesus Enters Jerusalem

Jesus and his disciples reached Bethphage and Bethany near the Mount
of Olives. When they were getting close to Jerusalem, Jesus sent two
of them on ahead. He told them, "Go into the next village. As soon as
you enter it, you will find a young donkey that has never been ridden.
Untie the donkey and bring it here. If anyone asks why you are doing
that, say, 'The Lord needs it and will soon bring it back.'" The
disciples left and found the donkey tied near a door that faced the
street. While they were untying it, some of the people standing there
asked, "Why are you untying the donkey?" They told them what Jesus
had said, and the people let them take it. The disciples led the
donkey to Jesus. They put some of their clothes on its back, and Jesus
got on. Many people spread clothes on the road, while others went to
cut branches from the fields. In front of Jesus and behind him, people
went along shouting, "Hooray! God bless the one who comes in the name
of the Lord! God bless the coming kingdom of our ancestor David.
Hooray for God in heaven above!" After Jesus had gone to Jerusalem, he
went into the temple and looked around at everything. But since it was
already late in the day, he went back to Bethany with the twelve
disciples.

Jesus Puts a Curse on a Fig Tree

When Jesus and his disciples left Bethany the next morning, he was
hungry. From a distance Jesus saw a fig tree covered with leaves, and
he went to see if there were any figs on the tree. But there were not
any, because it wasn't the season for figs. So Jesus said to the
tree, "Never again will anyone eat fruit from this tree!" The
disciples heard him say this.

Jesus in the Temple

After Jesus and his disciples reached Jerusalem, he went into the
temple and began chasing out everyone who was selling and buying. He
turned over the tables of the moneychangers and the benches of those
who were selling doves. Jesus would not let anyone carry things
through the temple. Then he taught the people and said, "The
Scriptures say, 'My house should be called a place of worship for all
nations.' But you have made it a place where robbers hide!" The chief
priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses heard what Jesus said,
and they started looking for a way to kill him. They were afraid of
him, because the crowds were completely amazed at his teaching. That
evening, Jesus and the disciples went outside the city."

God bless you.

John 12:1-19

John 12:1-19
At Bethany

"Six days before Passover Jesus went back to Bethany, where he had
raised Lazarus from death. A meal had been prepared for Jesus. Martha
was doing the serving, and Lazarus himself was there. Mary took a very
expensive bottle of perfume and poured it on Jesus' feet. She wiped
them with her hair, and the sweet smell of the perfume filled the
house. A disciple named Judas Iscariot was there. He was the one who
was going to betray Jesus, and he asked, "Why wasn't this perfume
sold for three hundred silver coins and the money given to the poor?"
Judas did not really care about the poor. He asked this because he
carried the moneybag and sometimes would steal from it.Jesus replied,
"Leave her alone! She has kept this perfume for the day of my burial.
You will always have the poor with you, but you won't always have me."
A Plot To Kill Lazarus A lot of people came when they heard that Jesus
was there. They also wanted to see Lazarus, because Jesus had raised
him from death. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus. He
was the reason that many of the Jewish leaders were turning from them
and putting their faith in Jesus.

Jesus Enters Jerusalem

The next day a large crowd was in Jerusalem for Passover. When they
heard that Jesus was coming for the festival, they took palm branches
and went out to greet him. They shouted, "Hooray! God bless the one
who comes in the name of the Lord! God bless the King of Israel!"
Jesus found a donkey and rode on it, just as the Scriptures
say,"People of Jerusalem, don't be afraid! Your King is now coming,
and he is riding on a donkey."
At first, Jesus' disciples did not understand. But after he had been
given his glory, they remembered all this. Everything had happened
exactly as the Scriptures said it would. A crowd had come to meet
Jesus because they had seen him call Lazarus out of the tomb. They
kept talking about him and this miracle. But the Pharisees said to
each other, "There is nothing that can be done! Everyone in the world
is following Jesus."

God bless you.

Seek wisdom from the Lord.

Seek wisdom from The Lord

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to
all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

James 1:5 NIV

I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs
me in the night.
I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right
hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:7,8 NASB

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined
in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24;5 7


Days of Elijah (Worship Video w/ Lyrics) HD


Standing Unashamed Before HIM.

Standing Unashamed Before HIM

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be
ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the
Father and of the holy angels. I tell you the truth, some who are
standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of
God."

Luke 9:26,27 NIV

And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we
may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If
ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth
righteousness is born of him.

1 John 2:28,29 KJV

According to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put
to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even
now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Philippians 1:20,21 NASB

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into
my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.

John 11:45-57.

John 11:45-57 (GNT)
The Plot against Jesus

(Matthew 26.1-5; Mark 14.1,2; Luke 22.1,2)

45Many of the people who had come to visit Mary saw what Jesus did,
and they believed in him.46But some of them returned to the Pharisees
and told them what Jesus had done.47So the Pharisees and the chief
priests met with the Council and said, "What shall we do? Look at all
the miracles this man is performing!48If we let him go on in this way,
everyone will believe in him, and the Roman authorities will take
action and destroy our Temple and our nation!"
49One of them, named Caiaphas, who was High Priest that year, said,
"What fools you are!50Don't you realize that it is better for you to
have one man die for the people, instead of having the whole nation
destroyed?"51Actually, he did not say this of his own accord; rather,
as he was High Priest that year, he was prophesying that Jesus was
going to die for the Jewish people,52and not only for them, but also
to bring together into one body all the scattered people of God.53From
that day on the Jewish authorities made plans to kill Jesus.54So Jesus
did not travel openly in Judea, but left and went to a place near the
desert, to a town named Ephraim, where he stayed with the disciples.
55The time for the Passover Festival was near, and many people went up
from the country to Jerusalem to perform the ritual of purification
before the festival.56They were looking for Jesus, and as they
gathered in the Temple, they asked one another, "What do you think?
Surely he will not come to the festival, will he?"57The chief priests
and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where Jesus
was, he must report it, so that they could arrest him.

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for me. Three days later you resurrected him.
I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and
savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.
