Though the World Would Shut Jesus Out.
The Triumphal Entry
As Jesus entered Jerusalem on what we have come to call Palm Sunday, people then were crying out,
“Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory to the highest!”
The Pharisees, religious leaders of the time, told Jesus to rebuke his disciples but Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very rocks cry out.”
Today, there are those who would have the name of Jesus censored from television. Yet, His name prevails thanks to a number of strong Christian artist who refuse to be silenced. Here is a link, Jesus’ Name Be Lifted Up, to view the artist and their astounding performances. It takes courage to take a stand for Jesus and it makes my heart glad to see young people refusing to be silenced. I pray that we will continue to see more and more people young and old alike praise the name of Jesus wherever they are.
It has been my experience to watch a room clear when Jesus is discussed. If there were no power to His name then why does His name effect peolpe the way it does? I will worship and adore His name until I die. Praise the name of Jesus!
Try as they may to keep Him out, the name of Jesus will prevail. To God be the glory!
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:16-17
