The coming of The King

“As they approached Jerusalem...They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it. And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields. Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting: “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest!”

Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple..." (Mark 11:1-11)


How many times when we see something finally happening that we have been hoping for and expected and it doesn’t turn out the way we want...

The people shouted out with shouts of praise when Jesus entered into the city of Jerusalem... believing that they were going to see Jesus set up an earthly kingdom that would deliver them from the strong hand of Rome that had oppressed them for years...

They expected they would get what they wanted without having to change their attitudes, and their worldly ways. The people wanted a king to rule over them in the natural… but God wanted a King who would shatter the grip of sin…

Man sets his heart toward the natural, but God to the Supernatural

We think from the flesh... God from The Spirit

And what about us the church... have we not cried out to God for decades wanting revival to come into the church and our cities and villages? And yet, Jesus stands at the door and knocks even now during this world-wide crisis and are we, even us the church, willing to open the door to let Him in?

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.” (Rev.3:20)

Are we willing to humble ourselves and admit we have gone astray, that we have become lukewarm in the mouth of God…like the church in Laodicea…?

Or will we continue to do what we know and do church our way... same ole…same ole… without even a thought that we need to change our ways…and our hearts...?

We stand in one of the greatest hours the church has ever seen in this generation... revival is not coming the way many have wished or anticipated it would...

But know this, as God is waking us up from our slumber and calling His church to a place of repentance and renewal...

it will always turn out the way God wants!

He stands at the door and knocks... what will we do?
