A BETRAYER AT THE DINNER TABLE

THE PLACE OF THE LAST SUPPER (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My brothers and sisters, this week allows us to go deep within ourselves and reflect upon that awesome moment in history that Jesus took upon His shoulders the agony of being beaten, humiliated in every way possible, suffering while being nailed and hanged upon a cross for all of our sins in order that we may have the opportunity to enjoy eternal life that God the father promised and sent His Son Jesus to die for.

Now use your imagination and image yourselves sitting down at the dinner table with family and friends and eating a well prepared meal as you discuss the family problems and current events which are suppose to be a very enjoyable moment.  Then image yourself not having the benefit of spiritual insight to know that one of your family members have been plotting behind your back to kill the head of your family, what would be your immediate reaction?  In the case of Jesus and His twelve disciples this is exactly what happen.

On that evening (Wednesday or Thursday), Jesus arrived in Jerusalem with the twelve disciples.  The meal was not to be eaten until after sunset and was supposed to be finished by midnight.

However, as Jesus and His Disciples were eating, Jesus spoke the stunning words, that quickly got the attention of everyone sitting around the dinner table that evening.  Jesus said, “One of you will betray me.”  The betrayer was one of his own chosen twelve disciples, a member of his own family, one with whom the meal was being shared.  Jesus words caused quite a stir among the disciples.  They had heard Jesus tell them three different times that he would soon die, but that one of them would actually betray Jesus saddened them greatly.

Although the other disciples were confused by Jesus words, Judas knew what he meant.  Apparently, Judas was not the obvious betrayer.  After all, he was the one the disciples trusted to keep the money.  Therefore, the disciples asked Jesus who the betrayer was; “I’m not the one, am I?” each one asked in turn.  Matthew records that even Judas asked the same question (Matthew 26:25).  Jesus knew that Judas was going to betray him, and he also knew that Judas would not repent.

In our studies we find that Luke wrote this about Satan, he said Satan entered into Judas Iscariot before he went to the religious leaders.  However, Satan’s part in the betrayal of Jesus does not remove any of the responsibility from Judas.  In God’s sovereign will and according  to his timetable, he uses sinful men.  But that doesn’t excuse their sin.  All people will be held accountable for their choices and actions.  Whatever Judas thought, Satan assumed that Jesus death would end Jesus mission and thwart God’s plan.  Like Judas, Satan did not know that Jesus death and resurrection were the most important parts of God’s plan all along.

All I can say in conclusion, is that this had to be one hellish feeling in the gut of each family member sitting around the dinner table that night knowing that one of them would betray the head of their family in such an evil way.

THE PEOPLE CHOOSES A MURDER OVER A POPULAR TEACHER

THE PEOPLE CHOOSES A MURDER OVER A POPULAR TEACHER

PILATE WASHED HIS HANDS OF THE SITUATION (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Today as we  think on all the good things Jesus has done for each one of us, and if you were one of those people in the crowd more than 2000 years ago would you make the same choice as they did.  How can you be certain that you would or would not?  On what basics are you making your decision?

Now let us look at how scripture records that event.  We know from our studies that the Jewish leaders clamored for Jesus’ death, while a Gentile woman believed that Jesus was truly innocent.

People of these times placed a great deal of importance on dreams.  God was sending a warning to Pilate through his wife, but he did not heed it.  Pilate’ fear of losing his very prestige job made him not listen to his wife with the warning God had given to her to give to her husband.  Listen to the message she sent to her husband, 19Also, while he was seated on the judgment bench, his wife sent him a message, saying, Have nothing to do with that just and upright Man, for I have had a painful experience today in a dream because of Him.”  (Matthew 27:19 AMP).

Now Pilate is caught up in a situation is regardless to how he truly feels about it and the fact that his wife is pressing upon him not to go through with it, if he wants to keep his job and prevent a riot from taking place, he must complete the task.  All the religious leaders went among the crowd, persuading the people to call for Barabbas to be released.  This is how the Bible describes the situation; 20But the chief priests and the elders prevailed on the people to ask for Barabbas, and put Jesus to death.  21Again the governor said to them, which of the two do you wish me to release for you? And they said, Barabbas!  Matthew 27:20-21)

The people knew that Barabbas was a revolutionary and a murderer, yet they still chose him over the Son of God, one who had done so much for them.  Faced with the same choice today, people are still choosing “Barabbas.”  They would rather have the tangible force of human power than the salvation offered by the Son of God.  Now think on this for a moment and look at your own life.

The crowd has really been wiped into frenzy and Pilate is caught in one big mess, so he says this to the crowd, “Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?  23They all replied, Let Him be crucified! And he said, Why? What has He done that is evil? But they shouted all the louder, Let Him be crucified!” 

24So when Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but rather that a riot was about to break out, he took water and washed his hands in the presence of the crowd, saying, I am not guilty of nor responsible for this righteous Man’s blood; see to it yourselves. (Matthew 27:22-23 AMP)

This hand washing was performed as a gesture of innocence to show that one had nothing to do with a murder, was a Jewish custom, not a Roman one (Deuteronomy 21:6-9).  In trying to excuse himself and place the responsibility for an innocent man’s death on them, he followed the path already taken by the religious leaders as they dealt with Judas in 27:4, saying, “The responsibility is yours!”  In making no decision, Pilate made the decision to let the crowds crucify Jesus.  Although he washed his hands, the guilt remained.  How do you feel after you physically wash your hands, of a situation that you have been heavily involved in that you know was wrong?

 

PALM SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 67

TODAY WE ARE CELEBRATING PALM SUNDAY AS ONE PEOPLE HONORING OUR LORD AND SAVIOR

We encourage you to begin the worship service this morning by clicking on each video as it delivers a special message for the order of the service for your enjoyment.  Please enter into our virtual church, take a seat and enjoy the service…

It is now prayer time, click on this next video as Pastor Davis lifts us up with his prayer of praise and thanksgiving.

JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM RIDING UPON A DONKEY

Jesus Riding on a Donkey into Jerusalem (photo by photobucket.com)

As you begin to study this lesson and the many lessons you will study on this subject, be assured that all four gospels were in agreement on this great celebration and spoke clearly about the event.  Here are the chapters and verses you can find what each had to say:  (Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19).

Now let us understand that Believers as well as non believers from around the world will begin this Sunday Morning CELEBRATING PALM SUNDAY, and we encourage you, where ever you may be to join us here as well as your local church community and together we will lift up the one who said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.”  It is a day of remembrance of the triumphal entry into Jerusalem by Jesus as he sit upon a DONKEY.  This was the first day of the week that Jesus would be crucified, and the great Passover festival was about to begin.  Jews would come to Jerusalem from all over the Roman world during this week-long celebration to remember the great Exodus from Egypt.

The symbolism of the donkey may refer to the Eastern tradition that it is an animal of peace, versus the horse, which is the animal of war.  Therefore, a king came riding upon a horse when he was bent on war and rode upon a donkey when he wanted to point out he was coming in peace. Therefore, Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem symbolized his entry as the Prince of Peace, not as a war-waging king.

When Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey’s colt, he affirmed his messianic royalty, as well as his humility.  The people recognized that he was fulfilling prophecy.  The colt, never having been ridden, did not have a saddle, so the disciples threw their garments over the colt so that Jesus could sit on it.  The action of placing the cloaks on the donkey and Jesus riding it connotes majesty.  Crowds of people had already gathered on this stretch of road a mile outside of Jerusalem, going to the city for the festival.  “The crowd’s spontaneous celebration honored Jesus as they spread their coats on the road ahead of Jesus and cut

PALM BRANCHES

PALM BRANCHES

branches from the trees.  Some were spread along Jesus path; others were probably waved in the air.  The branches were from palm, olive and fig trees, and they were used to welcome a national liberator and symbolized victory.

Palm branches are a token of rest and peace after sorrow (Revelation 7:9).  The word “Hosanna” means “Save now, we pray you.”  Putting these thoughts together, it would seem as if the people were acknowledging Jesus to be the One sent from God to save them from Roman cruelty and to give them rest and peace after the sorrow of their long years of Gentile oppression.

The disciples did not realize that what was happening was in exact fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy, that Jesus was actually entering Jerusalem as the rightful King of Israel.  But after the Lord had gone back to heaven to be glorified at the right hand of the Father, it dawned on the disciples that these events were in fulfillment of the Scriptures.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers.  You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us.  We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.  May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

WE ARE OUR BROTHERS’ KEEPER

We are the stewards of what God placed in our hands.  He gave us his only begotten son as a symbol of love, peace and justice.  In CELEBRATING this PALM SUNDAY, let us remember that we all are our brothers’ keeper, therefore, when we look upon the life and death and resurrection of Jesus, he showed us in so many wonderful ways how we too should live out our lives filled with love, peace and justice and never allow our FAITH to ever wavier on the fact “we are our brothers’ keeper.”  Now let us go out and serve as we have been called to do.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?

HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE AND READY FOR HARVEST (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE AND READY FOR HARVEST (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

THE HARVEST IS RIPE BUT THE LABORS ARE FEW (MATTHEW 9:36-38)

We begin our lesson today and for the rest of the week praying for labors to go forth and gather in the Gospel Harvest.  We asked the question, “HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?  Now we set before you the path in which it all must unfold by asking this next question; “How can we be in real sympathy with Christ unless we love the work of laboring in this Gospel harvest, and long to be commissioned to go forth and put in our sickle with our own hand?”  “THE HARVEST IS RIPE BUT THE LABORS ARE FEW!”

Most certainly, if we were in Christ‘s spirit we should say — I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I strengthen till it be accomplished? We should cry out, Lord, let me go! Let me go — for dying millions are just now perishing in their sins. How can I pray God to send out others if I am in heart unwilling to go myself? I have heard many say — O that I was young; how I should rejoice to go myself. This seems like a state of mind that can honestly pray for God to send forth laborers.

The spirit of this prayer implies that we are willing to make any personal sacrifices in order to go. Are not men always willing to make personal sacrifices in order to gain the great object of their heart‘s desire? Did ever a merchant, seeking goodly pearls, find one of great value but he was quite willing to go and sell all that he had and buy it?

Moreover, an honest heart before God in this prayer implies that you are willing to
do all you can to prepare your selves to accomplish this work. Each young man or young woman should say God requires something of me in this work. It may be God wants you as a servant in some missionary family; if so, you are ready to go. No matter what the work may be no labor done for God or for man is degrading. In the spirit of this prayer, you will say — If I may but wash the feet of my Lord‘s servants, I shall richly enjoy it. All young person’s especially, feeling that life is before them, should say — I must devote myself, in the most effective way possible, to the promotion of my Savior‘s cause. Suppose a man bows his soul in earnest prayer before. God, saying, “O Lord, send out hosts of men into this harvest-field,” does not this imply that he girds himself up for this work with his might? Does it not imply that he is ready to do the utmost he can in any way whatever?

Again, this prayer, made honestly, implies that we do all we can to prepare others to go out. Our prayer, will be, “Lord, give us hearts to prepare others, and get as many ready as possible and as well prepared as possible for the gathering in of this great harvest.”

Of course it is also implied that we abstain from whatever would hinder us, and make no arrangements that would tie our hands. Many young Christians do this, sometimes heedlessly, often in a way which shows that they are by no means fully set to do God‘s work, first of all.

When we honestly pray God to send out laborers, and our own circumstances allow us to go, we are to expect that He will send us. What! Does God need laborers of every description, and will He not send us? Depend on it, He will send out the man who prays right, and whose heart is deeply and fully with God. And we need not be suspicious lest God should lack the needful wisdom to manage His matters well. He will put all His men where they should be, into the fields they are best qualified to fill. The good reaper will be put into his post, sickle in hand; and if there are feeble ones who can only glean, He puts them there.

One indispensable part of this preparation is a heart for it. Most plainly so, for God wants no men in Hisharvest-field whose hearts are not there. You would not want workmen in your field who have no heart for their work. Neither does God. But He expects us to have this preparation. And He will accept of no man’s excuse from service that he has no heart to engage in it. The want of a heart for this work is not your misfortune, but your fault, your great and damning sin.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:  (MATTHEW 14:22-33 MSG) WALKING ON WATER

As soon as the meal was finished, he insisted that the disciples get in the boat and go on ahead to the other side while he dismissed the people. With the crowd dispersed, he climbed the mountain so he could be by himself and pray. He stayed there alone, late into the night.

Meanwhile, the boat was far out to sea when the wind came up against them and they were battered by the waves. At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came toward them walking on the water. They were scared out of their wits. “A ghost!” they said, crying out in terror.

 But Jesus was quick to comfort them. “Courage, it’s me. Don’t be afraid.”

Peter, suddenly bold, said, “Master, if it’s really you, call me to come to you on the water.”

He said, “Come ahead.”

Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, “Master, save me!”

Jesus didn’t hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, “Faint-heart, what got into you?”

The two of them climbed into the boat, and the wind died down. The disciples in the boat, having watched the whole thing, worshiped Jesus, saying, “This is it! You are God’s Son for sure!”

DRAWING STRENGTH TO SURVIVE IN THE MIDST OF EVIL AND CHAOS

DRAWING STRENGTH TO SURVIVE IN THE MIDST OF EVIL AND CHAOS

THE PURPLE IRIS (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

THE PURPLE IRIS (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

We are living in very dangerous times, our lives and the lives of our children are at risk and it seems that our government and laws are failing to protect us from Evil and Chaos.  The trial of George Zimmerman murdering Treyvon Martin, an unarmed seventeen year old boy and then being set free and given his weapon back to go out and do it all over again sets a bad example for others to do the same to anyone of us are our children.

Now I encourage each of you, hold onto God’s unchanging hands; allow your deep abiding faith in God to become your guiding light.  For we know that in moments like this our minds can become hot and take us into many different directions, and some will cause us to make wrong decisions and possibly commit evil and violent acts.  But when you go deep inside and allow your faith to strengthen you and guide you and become the armor that will protect you, then you know that without a shadow of doubt, “no weapon formed against you shall ever prosper.”

In these very difficult times when it seems that each turn we take, life is throwing us another curve ball and we are running into irremovable walls, know that it is in such times that your faith is being tested and at this moment, your only option is to trust the Lord.  Allow your faith to dwell in His powerful hands, for He said, “He would never leave you or forsake you,” therefore in times such as this we must come into His presents and dwell in His House of Righteousness.

Let us remember, God will always have our backs.  Our friends and love ones may forsake us, but God will never leave us.  Listen to what He tells us, He says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)

Therefore, when we find ourselves caught up in the middle of Evil and Chaos as so many of us seems to find ourselves at this very moment in time, stay focus, keep your eye on the prize and allow your faith to calm your mind in the heat of the storm.  God knows the trials and tribulations you are facing and He will fight your battles.  The enemy will do all he can to keep you off balance, confused and fighting among yourselves, but God will always be your guiding light and your faith will strengthen you and carry you through to the end.  The race is not to the swift are the strongest, but to those who have the patience to endure.

Therefore, let us be about the business of “DRAWING STRENGTH TO SURVIVE IN THE MIDST OF EVIL AND CHAOS!”

We thank you for studying with us and helping to spread the word of God’s love and mercy throughout the world.  It is through the work that each one of us does, that God get the glory.  There is more for you to read and study, just click on the links below and discover:

REMOVE THE RESTRAINTS FROM YOUR MIND AND BE FILLED WITH KNOWLEDGE WISDOM AND POWER

LISTEN AND LEARN HOW FROM THE TEACHER PREACHER AND HEALER

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES 

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.  (Mark 11:23-24 ESV)

Follow, Ask, Seek, and Go, what more do we need? Listen and Learn from the Teacher, Preacher and Healer; Jesus, who took his assignment, his mission seriously. Concerned about the plight of all people he diligently sought to deliver the Message the way God intended. His intended purpose, to help us understand who we are and to whom we belong. He came to erase the guilt and stain of sin from our lives in order that we might be able to spend eternity in the presence of the Most Holy of Holiness, eternally.

The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them. His work is honorable and glorious and His righteousness endures forever (Psalm 111:4-3).  Jesus encourages us to, “Come, all who labor and are heavy laden, I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, you’ll find rest for your soul (Matthew 11:28). He encourages us to seek him out and in doing so we will find in him peace and joy unlike anything we’ll ever experience.

Jesus the Teacher: As he began his earthly ministry it centered on people from every walk of life. Getting them to slow down and listen to his message was a task he carried out diligently no matter attempts to side-track him. Even in choosing his closest followers (his disciples) he was not concerned about whom they were, yet he knew that in them there were possibilities to help perfect God’s plan for the human race.

Jesus preached God’s Kingdom and taught people the truth about God, the process for renewal of spirit, grace and mercy. His word encourages hearts when it seems as if there is no one to turn too, no hope. He therefore wants each of us to diligently seek him, for he says, “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened (Matthew 7:7). In his sermons he was always striving to relate his teaching in simplicity, it is therefore much easier to understand and apply his word to our lives when we set aside time to fellowship with him, because he is a Teacher, Preacher and Healer of great importance.

Jesus the healer always compassionate, caring and concerned about the wellbeing of others; He healed people of their diseases and the bad effects of their lives, their ailments, mental, emotional and/or physical conditions. What he did was out in the open and when others saw how he ministered to those in need, they believed and made the decision to become followers, by embracing his teachings.

Jesus the Preacher, Teacher and Healer provides all we need in this life, so why do we worry about the material aspect of our lives. He lets us know that he is always present and watching over each of us as we journey through life; Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow , for tomorrow will worry about its own things (Matthew 6:34). We have an advocate to make our request known, one who does not judge or criticize. He patiently waits and expects us to call him in times of distress as well as peace; he is the Preacher, Teacher and Healer of our weary hearts.

Let today be a day you embrace life and look to the hills from where “all” your help comes; allow your heart to be filled with praise and thanksgiving, prepare yourself for the battle, it all belongs to God.  “REMOVE THE RESTRAINTS FROM YOUR MIND AND BE FILLED WITH KNOWLEDGE WISDOM AND POWER!”

Thank you for visiting and studying with us.  We love you and appreciate you, for we all have been called by Jesus to GO and make disciples.  Therefore, our mission is to help make that possible.  The work you do in your own ministries provides avenues for those who are seeking the truth, and when we join together, we provide powerful forces to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.  May His grace and mercy be with you now and into all eternity, in Jesus name, Amen!
