Truths of Jesus Triumphal Entry

 29And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
 30Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.
 31And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
 32And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.
 33And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?
 34And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
 35And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
 36And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
 37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
 38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
 39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
 40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
 41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
 (Luke 19:29-41, King James Version)

(Now, if you are like me and tend to skip over Bible passages in blog posts, go back up and read it carefully.)
 Truth  1).(verses 30-35)Imagine riding on an untrained horse or pony,that has never been ridden? I wouldn't try it! The people  marveled at Jesus! I believe His riding of an untrained ass was a foreshadowing of his power over death. No one else would have dared to ride that donkey,but Jesus had power over the donkey,just as He has power over the grave! He has the power to help you through whatever you are facing,you just have to ask!
Truth 2).(verses38-40)The people were praising Jesus,and the Pharisees told Jesus to rebuke them. Too often,we are like the Pharisses.We don't praise Him as we should. Next time you hear some birds chirping,join them in singing praises to the Creator to keep the rocks silent for one more day!

This is a great post! I really enjoyed it. The note at the end of the verses was very helpful too, as I do that a lot... :)
