READ JOHN 12:12-15
12-15) What did the multitude do when they heard that Jesus was coming? Compare their cries with Psalm 118:22-29.
v. 22 - the stone "Christ" which the builders (Israel) rejected has become the chief corner stone. (Upon His death He will build His church, Matt. 16:18)
v. 24 - this is the day that the Lord has made. This is the day of Jesus' death where He takes upon Himself the sins of the world.
v. 26 - blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord. Jesus came to do the will of the Father and to glorify Him who sits on the throne.
v. 27 - The Lord has given us light, prepare the altar. The light of the world had just ridden through the gates as a humble servant, for He came to die for our sin.
v. 28-29 - give thanks, the Lord is good and His loving kindness is everlasting. The New Covenant is an everlasting covenant that can never be broken. The Old Covenant is a progression of revelations given by God, picturing the Lord Jesus Christ. The Messiah now is bringing in the New Covenant and has ridden into His city Jerusalem ready to do the one thing that only He could do. "He (God) made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Cor. 5:21)
FATHER, THANK YOU THAT JESUS WAS WILLING NOT ONLY TO DIE FOR US BUT TO DIE TO HIS OWN WILL AND SOUGHT TO ONLY FULFILL YOUR WILL. THANK YOU THAT HE WAS OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, SO THAT WE CAN CLOTHE OURSELVES IN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ENTER INTO YOUR THRONE ROOM OF GRACE. AMEN!
