As we head into the Passover week - and Good Friday- Then Shabat where we are having a Passover Seder ...
I love to wonder about the Donkey and how significant it is to the story.
I thought it would be on this week since it is Easter weekend Passover week in so many different ways. In fact, we are going to have a Passover Seder at slow missionary homes. If you want to talk to me about that. I would love to have you come join us. It will be Saturday from 4 o'clock until about seven is usually about three hours and you can just call me my number is 336-909-2779 I would love to talk to you and have you join us there at the Passover Seder coming up again this Saturday. That is a parole 16th starts at 4 o'clock and it's it slow missionary homes in snowcapped North Carolina again is call me and I give you all the details.
336-909-2779, but also since it's Easter week, we wanted to get into this more Bible wonders as I love the wonder about Palm Sunday there so many things to wonder about until that we do. Several of these this week about Palm Sunday, but the first one there.
I think for me, as you sit there and wonder what's up with these donkeys, the donkeys were there. You know why why did this happen why did he write in the Jerusalem on a donkey and you may know, there's lots of prophecies about that but I don't know if you've ever thought through that this was not the first time that there was a triumphal entry into this area with a father and a son with a very obedient son going to be sacrificed. And so when you look at the picture that that God painted very clearly in the book of Genesis when it came to Abraham and Isaac, and so much of the foundation of of our faith is found here in Abraham because he was being obedient to the to the father himself and driving in writing this donkey to Jerusalem and you can see there in Genesis where he saddled this donkey and then obviously had his son going with them so you can see that Isaac was writing this donkey and all along on the donkey would have been the wood for the sacrifice and you may understand. I sure do that.
There is wood involved in righteousness throughout the Bible there was wood in the ark, and there is wood in all the burnt offerings and clearly there was wood in the cross and so here we have another son is being very obedient in the case of Isaac to his father saddling this donkey on his way to Jerusalem for a sacrifice. Then, very interestingly you'll note that they leave the donkey behind as they go up to worship and even Abraham says to the people with them. You will be back so it's faith clearly was there and then we know the ram was stuck in the thicket so to me is just her tremendous Bible wonder to think about today is wow the obedience of Abraham here is unbelievable that he would sacrifice his son is a picture of what God the father was going to do another triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Again, you may question whether not always Mount Moriah exactly the same location I've seen several studies and I think it's pretty clear that if that's definitely in the general vicinity of Jerusalem, so you know knowing God as I know them. I think when we see the instant replay.
I think we'll see that Isaac did come in that that exact same area there on the donkey leave the donkey behind it to make the rest of the trip up to Mount Moriah/Golgotha.
However, the Lord provided he provided a ram for us on Good Friday is working to be headed towards that.
We got a few more Bible wonders along these lines again III could talk at length about the donkey or donkeys, depending on which version you want, but I'll leave that for another day because it is when I leave this wonder like oh my goodness, the obedience of the son and the desire of the father. Here is just remarkable in all sorts of different aspects and and again as were doing this Passover Seder we actually slaughter a lamb and every time I slaughter that lamb. I've taken part of it. I can't help but think of what that felt like that day for Abraham to have his son having no Abraham himself having slaughter lots of lambs realizing what that's like, that lambs are a lot different when you slaughter them. They do go quiet and ended it in. We pray with that lamb because to me it just represents so clearly that that that the price of sin is very very high and something to wonder about. I mean, oh my goodness, the price that Jesus paid for all that we have done is only understood through the blood that comes out of that lamb is absolutely amazing and those who may want even take part in that. Again, call me because we will be slaughtering that lamb on Good Friday and anybody that wants to has never experienced that and that's something that you want feel free to call me 336-909-2779.
