I would be a little afraid to walk into a town and just take someone's donkey. It's all trusting in Jesus that he knows what he is is doing. It seems so wonderful how people are loving Jesus and worshiping him I just do not understand how this will be the same crowd that later wants him crucified.
Jesus is tied of people ruining his place of worship we all get frustrated sometimes and I think Jesus was done with what his people where doing. It's better to hurt a tree than a person Jesus seems to be so filled up with anger he can not take it anymore. Without limiting God's power we can do any thing the only limit to your faith is your trust in Christ. Doubt is the worst it ruins everything else Satin is always going to be pushing for it be we need to have faith to know that God knows what he is doing.
It's better to be an bad figure on the outside but then on the inside you really are a good person this is the first son. It is worse to be like the second son he try to look nice but when his true colors showed it was not a pretty picture. The Pharisees are wicked farmers they try to kill all the people that come to them but Jesus still loves them.
you mean you wouldn't walk around buhler and take someones dog? Why not ? But yes it is strange for this and say that the Lord needs it and well they will let you just take them. I love the aspect that for this in v9 says Jesus was in the Center of the procession. He should be in the center of our lives as well, should be in the midst of everything. Some people knew him while others didn't but they still wanted to know and people still rejoiced.
Jesus drives out the people that are using his temple for the wrong reason. It is to be a house of prayer but has been turned into a market/deen of thieves. He get angry with them and believe that its alright to get angry in this aspect and drives them out. He transformed it from a mockery to then healing people. This is a form of Righteous indignation. Yes Jesus sort of still took out some anger that he had on this fig tree which always just makes me laugh for this story. But just like this fig tree that wasn't bearing any fruit what good does it do? You would think Jesus was looking at it during a time that it should have been. Well look at us? Do we have any fruit on our tree? We are just called to have faith and amazing things will happen. I believe that and yet sometimes almost still doubt. I wish i just had a little more faith in Jesus and in myself sometimes to be able to do the things he has called on me to do.
What authority do we have? Its by the power of the Holy Spirit that is thought God and Jesus that we are able to do the things that we do. Its better to show up late than not come at all, especially to Gods "Party"
We see an interesting story with the wicked farmers and how it progresses and sometimes we can't just send people we actually have to be able to go ourselves. If not we are foolish. These people think and want certain things and are willing to do whatever they can to get it, but Jesus casts them out because he knows the heart and the way it is achieved. Just like we see here and think that at times we see that still today that some people are good, others not and some put on a good act.
I would have a little trouble taking someone's animal and just saying the lord need him. Jesus did say he would protect us so I would trust him. Never think I'm too late for God or I not good enough none of us are good enough that's the great thing it is for everyone.
