As we gather this afternoon for Worship-Intercession we are gathering on the day when the entry into Jerusalem by Jesus is remembered. The people rejoiced because they thought He would save them from Roman rule. Jesus came, however, to liberate the world from the rule of the god of this world and his demonic minions. Luke 21:1-9
21 When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.” 4 This [a]took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5 “Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold your King is coming to you,
Gentle, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
6 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them, 7 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on [b]the coats. 8 Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road. 9 The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting,
“Hosanna to the Son of David.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest!”
The cries of Hosanna were cries of "Save us" but most did not understand. It was a dramatic week of cleansing the temple and declaring His Father's house a house of prayer, teaching on the Kingdom of God with authority and challenging the religious system. Matthew 21-26:13. Jesus wept over Jerusalem because they did not understand the day of visitation. Let us, as believers, praise Him, worship Him and pray that we will not miss our day of visitation. Holy Spirit is moving powerfully in revival and awakening.
