Jesus Comes, Teaches, Warns, Predicts, and Spent

Jesus: His Last Days on Earth as a Man

 If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily
and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.

– Luke 9:23-24

Jesus comes to Jerusalem as King,  He curses an (unfruitful) Fig Tree, His authority is questioned, He teaches parables about two sons, and tenants of a farmer. Matthew 21

Jesus teaches: a parable about a wedding banquet, paying taxes, having high integrity, two great commandments upon which all commandments hang. Jesus’ authority is questioned.

He tells the Pharisees He is not only the Son of God; but is God Himself, come in the flesh, and has all authority over everything.

Matthew 22

Jesus warns his disciples about becoming hypocrites and gives them seven woes. He warns the top religious leaders and teachers of God’s law. Matthew 23

Jesus predicts the destruction of the Jewish Temple, shares signs of the end times, and tells his followers no one will know the day or the hour when He will come again.  

Matthew 24

Within a few days many, from the same crowd, who followed and praised Jesus, were deceived and turned against Him. They shouted out to crucify Him after He was arrested.

Jesus spent his days: teaching, encouraging, warning, and predicting.

He told: His disciples they would like Him; rejected by many, abandoned by friends and family, persecuted by the ungodly, killed and resurrected from the dead after they suffered an untold time.

He promised: He would send the Holy Spirit to empower them, He would sustain them when they were at their weakest, He would never abandon, betray or desert them.

He said He would welcome them to a Heavenly place where He would be with them and His love and peace would be their life. There would be a New Kingdom and His followers would rule and reign with Him throughout eternity. They would have to wait and trust. They would be tempted to run away.

Matthew 21-24

You can’t FOLLOW JESUS WITHOUT FAITH in Him, His Words, His teachings, etc. or His eternal Kingdom. You can’t be a coward and follow Him and you will never have the strength to follow Him without Him. It’s a narrow road.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Hebrews 11:1,3

Pursuing our faith in Jesus means building our lives on the faith and belief that Jesus is who He says He is, knowing we will be reunited with Him upon our death, and our lives are eternal.

Our lives and troubles here are temporary. There is life after our death and a place for us being prepared for eternity.

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD. Hosanna in the highest.

Give thanks to the Lord, our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever

Forever, God is faithful

Forever, God is strong

Forever, God is with us

Forever
