The Hero We Have Been Looking For

Luke 19:28-48

1. Making a Planned Royal Entry (Luke 19:28-39)

A. Time Slows

B. All of this Prophecy The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. He ties his foal to the vine, and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine; He washes his garments in wine, And his robes in the blood of grapes. Genesis 49:10-11

“The Lord has need of it.”- How a king would be from 1 Samuel 8:10-18.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. - Zechariah 9:9

C. Finally Recognized as the King (Luke 19:35-39)

Then they hurried and each man took his garment and placed it under him on the bare steps, and blew the trumpet, saying, “Jehu is king!” 2 Kings 9:13

And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields. Mark 11:8

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord; We have blessed you from the house of the Lord. Psalms 118:26

Just at that time some Pharisees approached, saying to Him, “Go away, leave here, for Herod wants to kill You.” And He said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I reach My goal.’ Nevertheless, I must journey on today and tomorrow and the next day; for it cannot be that a prophet would perish outside of Jerusalem. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not have it! Behold, your house is left to you desolate; and I say to you, you will not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord !’ ” Luke 13:31-35

D. Quiet! (Luke 19:39-40)

And he said to them, “Men of Israel, take care what you propose to do with these men. For some time ago Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and a group of about four hundred men joined up with him. But he was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and came to nothing. After this man, Judas of Galilee rose up in the days of the census and drew away some people after him; he too perished, and all those who followed him were scattered. Acts 5:35-37

“We do not enter a building and then commence to worship. If you are not worshiping God on Monday morning, as you worshiped Him the day before, perhaps you are not worshiping Him at all.” AW Tozer, My Daily Pursuit, Quotable, 352.

For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

2. Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem (Luke19:41-44)

A. The Things Which make for peace!

B. Judgement will Come

3. Entering the Temple (Luke 19:45-48)

A. House of Prayer for all People!

Even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.” Isaiah 56:7

Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 7:11

B. Mixed Response Luke 19:47-48

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “ Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “ A men, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?” I said to him, “My Lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:9-17

Reflection:

1. Do you know Jesus as king?

2. Have you truly worshiped the King today and every day? At what level in your heart, your home, and in your life do you recognize that Jesus is King?

3. Invite others to the King!
