Passion Week: "it is finished"

Day Seven

Every thing is quiet behind the stone in front of the tomb, Jesus must be confined securely, death is assured ! ! !

Lots of stuff died on the cross, “Faith”, “hope”, “son” and “savior”   like Jesus said, “it's over!”


Yours in the Life and Death of Jesus,

The Passion: Day Six

Day six
         * looking beyond * the “CROSS”

     Remember Jesus has been in custody now for all night, 1 trial before Caiaphas, Jesus is held over for trial. The whole Sanhedrin is gathered before sun up for a second trail, so the full Sanhedrin declares Jesus of Nazareth a Blasphemer! (Matt.26:65)
Peter denies “he knows Jesus”!
A third trial at sun-up Jesus is declared guilty of Blasphemy worthy of death.
Jesus sent to Pilate a “forth” trial.

Passion week: day Five

Day Five Thur
Staring down the Old Rugged Cross.

The Plot thickens - Passover is ready

Like Jesus we shouldn't get distracted with time lines or days for feasts but keep our eyes on the “Cross.” What is important here is God's Plan!
It included the betrayal, the institution of Christ Communion, the Cross and the coming Resurrection!
This is also the time Jesus washed the disciples feet, the prayer of agony in Gethsemane and His ultimate arrest.

You God, we glorify; Have mercy on us, according to your unfailing love.

Preparing for the Cross

day four 

    All Israel prepares a paschal lamb or a kid of a year old, Exo. 12:5 says it must be “an unblemished Male” on the tenth day of the month until the 14th day. Our pastor just preached on this, Jewish tradition says they would bring the lamb into their homes, clean it up, keep it till the day of the “Sacrifice.” It was special to them, it was the best they had!

Not much is said in the New Testament about Jesus and the disciples activities on this day. But we do know that in this silence in scripture, Gods plan was still in action!

Looking toward Via Dolorosa

Tuesday – day three

Looking toward Via Dolorosa

Departing Bethany again on the 3 day they pass by the orchard on the way to the temple; And Peter remembered and said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered." (Mark 11:21) Jesus used the teachable moment to encourage the disciples faith. While at the temple the scribes and elders challenge Jesus' authority. Leaving the temple Jesus taught with many “parables” as they returned again to Bethany.
The betrayal begins: Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went off to the chief priests in order to betray Him to them.

Jesus' Passion week

Monday, 26
Day two
Jesus is moved as looks upon the “City of God,” the “City of David,” Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. It is this day that Jesus cursed the barren fig tree! Now in Jerusalem, Jesus comes to the Temple, the sight of the “money changers” stirs righteous indignation and turns over all the merchants booths!

Matthew 23:37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

Passion week Devotion

Palm Sunday
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
St. John 12;12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! ” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Blessed is the king of Israel!”

Most high and prayer hearing God
As we walk in Your garden as did Adam and Eve we talk with Thee our God and Creator.
Let us be ever mindful of the Love and Suffering of Your Son and the Savior of all people of Creation.

"For God so loved . . ."

Love Month

February is “Library Lovers Month” declared by one group! Along with that comes a whole list of February activities. Not to mention VALENTINES DAY. For some like our daughters occupation; National School Counseling WeekTM.Along with Black History Month, Heart Health Month, Nation Wild-birds Feeding Month, including Darwin Day celebrations and last most certainly least National Condom Month!

For God so loved . . .”
Gospel of John 3:16

The anti Christian portion of all societies would point to Lent, Easter and of course Christmas as purely Christian recognition.

The WONDER of it ALL


The Wonder of It All
by Chuck Swindoll

Luke 2:6-7


When Mary and Joseph began their journey southward to Bethlehem, they probably thought they had time to make the trip, register for the census, and then return home to Nazareth before the baby would be born. The weather cooperated and a donkey carried their provisions, but the journey proved more lengthy than either of them had expected. Mary was soon to give birth.

By the time they reached Bethlehem, Mary was exhausted. To make matters worse, the tiny town was packed with travel-weary people.
