Jesus Wept, Again
Jesus Wept, Again is a sermon teaching us about Palm Sunday when Jesus enters the city of Jerusalem, according to prophecy on the last Sunday before His crucifixion. This is what we call Palm Sunday. Jesus knew His time was at hand just as God planned.
On His way to Jerusalem, Jesus went to see Lazarus to “wake” him, to raise him from the dead after four days. The religious leaders wanted to put Jesus to death because many of the people believed on Him after raising up Lazarus. From there, Jesus went to triumphantly enter Jerusalem.
The Son of Man came to seek that which was lost. People are separated from God because of sin. Jesus sent for a colt of an ass to fulfill prophecy. If God can use a donkey, He can certainly use each of us. Sometimes we think we are smarter than God, how foolish is that.
People saw His miracles and the resurrecting of Lazarus. As Jesus entered Jerusalem, the people praised the Lord for all He’s done and called out “Hosanna in the highest.” meaning “Oh, save us.” As they saw Him riding in on a colt, they proclaimed Him as Messiah, as Saviour, and King of their heart. You would think everyone in the world would rejoice, but religious leaders rebuked His disciples and order that He silence them from calling Him Messiah. It was the week of Passover. Their concern was that Jesus would come and replace them to rule the people. Even some Pharisees believed on Him. But He told them that if he did silence the crowd, the very rocks would shout “Hosanna in the highest.”
When Jesus was just about to enter the city He wept over it. He had pleaded for the city to turn to Him, but the unbelief of the people had caused Him to cry. Unbelief is the worst sin anyone can commit. God forgives all kinds of sinners but He cannot forgive unbelief. People who accepted Jesus that day were saved just as we are saved today. But those who rejected Him that day are lost as are those who have rejected Him today are lost. Ask God to forgive you. He prophesied the destruction of the temple and it happened just as He said. Ask Him to save you and He will. Christians should share the message so others can be saved. Ask God to be a witness for Him. Trust Him and He will care for you.
Jesus Wept, Again sermon starts with verses from Luke 29:28-44:
28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.
31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.
33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?
34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
