28After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, 30"Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.
34They replied, "The Lord needs it."
35They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. 36As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road.
They shouted: Hosana! – God save us now! I pray
Their action: took off their robe and to be used as coaster treatment for royalty
The disciples – “Save us from hell & judgment”
The rejoicing crowd – “Save us from the oppression of Rome” Yoh 12:17
These quickly turn against Him 5 days later
The wondering crowd – “Save us from whatever”
“herd mentality” – “Crucify Him” (ikut2an) Jesus’ response: “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”
The critical crowd – “Save us from change” Luke 19:39, Yoh 12:19
Personal: where are we in the crowd?
Ministry: family, friends, city, country are in the moments of decision.
Next Sunday can be glorious decision for your friends & family. What are you going to do about it?
John 12;32 “But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself."
Jesus is still crying for Jerusalem. In a moment He will not have any choice but to curse the fig tree. Will you join His weeping?
This is the first time He announced that He is the Messiah. It’s decision time!
