PALM SUNDAY-THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

PALM SUNDAY BEGINS HOLY WEEK- THE MOST IMPORTANT WEEK IN THE                                         CHRISTIAN CALENDAR                                                            In comes the triumphant king, Jesus comes into Jerusalem, but then things turn   sour very quickly, we see the power struggle between the 2 powers- the authorities and   JC. The Pharisees just waiting to catch Jesus out, so as to destroy Him once and for all.

    Ezekiel in chapter 10, he makes a pronouncement on the temple, that God’s glory has left the temple because of corruption- a devastating text. This really shows God as a judgemental God, well how fickle are people? The crowd instead of supporting Jesus accused him, this represents all of us, we put Jesus to death, our sins did. In Colossians 2:15 it says “and having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Thank God that He is merciful, not because we deserve it, but because God is full of love for us all.
