The Mob Can Turn

The mob can turn.

A big event was coming to town and everyone was busy preparing, anticipating, hurrying. The Jews called it Passover.

Early in the week, on a dirt-and-stone street, a crowd hailed an itinerant teacher as a king entering the gates of Jerusalem.

He was trending.

“Hosanna!” they yelled, strewing his path with palm branches and their cloaks in a sign of honor. The word means “send help from on high.”

Four days later, they called for His crucifixion.

Screamed for it.

Demanded it.

Got it.

Those who cried “Hosanna!” while waving palm branches and dancing alongside the donkey that carried Jesus didn’t know He was the Christ who came to die, not wage war against Rome.

They didn’t know He was indeed the help from on high.

They didn’t know He was the sacrifice.

Who else but God could snatch mankind from the jaws of judgement and death?


To be continued …

Then the multitudes who went before
and those who followed cried out, saying:
“Hosanna to the Son of David!
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’
Hosanna in the highest!”
Matthew 21:9

    God’s purpose and plan is perfect!
    His will be done!
    Everything God does is because of His Great Love for each and everyone of us!
    We are all invited to spend Eternity with Him. We just simply need to accept His invitation.
