Luke 19: 29‐44
1. As the King enters the city a. The King of Kings: Those who come in the name of the Lord should be praised: “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” “Thus you shall say to him, ‘Because the Lord has need of it.’” “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” i. The Lord who creates, the Lord of all nations, the Lord of Israel, the Lord who controls all things in heaven and on earth, the Lord of the eternal Kingdom. ii. Lord Jesus Christ came to the world to prove this through many signs and miracles = to prove that all beings in the entire universe will listen to Him. He heals the sick and cast away the demons, resurrects the dead and calls the poor to be rich / this has never changed from the beginning until today. b. Prince of Peace: He is the King who rides a clot into Jerusalem (city of peace). “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” i. The Lord who represents us in taking responsibility in judgments, suffers, curses, deaths, burials and resurrections. ii. Casting out all of the works of the devil (sin, fear, worries, sickness, poverty and war) and revives love, justice, harmony, peace, the blissfulness in the Kingdom of heaven (Price of Peace) <Matt 12: 28, Romans 14: 17>. c. Entering the city of Jerusalem: The King of Jerusalem (King of Peace enters His own kingdom) i. The origin of Jerusalem: Abraham sacrificial altar (promise) Moses’ tabernacle (Most Holy Place / Holy Place / Outer Court) David’s tent (Jerusalem) Solomon’s Template Zerubbabel’s Temple / Ezra and Nehemiah’s revival movement King Herod’s temple. ii. The relationships with Christ Jesus in Jerusalem = Christ’s works and teachings / Christ’s death and resurrection / the beginning of Christ’s works of the Gospel. d. The life of a saint and the circle of influence of a saint (church) belongs to Jerusalem <John 2: 19, 1 Cor 3: 16> i. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up”. ii. “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”. e. When Jesus enter the city, it symbolizes the receiving of a King and a Lord to a saint or a church <Rev 3: 20, Romans 6: 1‐11> i. How does it relates to our self = we obtained a new life and a master once we die and resurrected together with Christ. ii. How it relates to the church = when the disciples of Christ were gathered, we revive the teachings of Christ, the promises, vision and the obedience to the guidance of the Lord. This results in fetching more people of God. The King cried for the city Now as Jesus drew near, He saw the city and wept over it…For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another… a. Jerusalem will be destroyed because: i. It didn’t know Jesus Christ (the Messiah) “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”. ii. Therefore enemies rise and surround it. “For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another…”. iii. Because they didn’t see the Immanuel God “because you did not know the time of your visitation.” = <NIV> because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you. b. Jerusalem is the major focus of God and the center of the entire world i. The prosperity and decline of Jerusalem in the history determines the prosperity and decline of the era 1. Jerusalem is the only way to obtain the blessings and favor of God. 2. The rise of Jerusalem brings the rise of era and the kingdom; but the fall of Jerusalem brings fall to the era, sin, disaster and war will come… ii. The rise and fall of the template determines the rise and fall of Jerusalem and Israel 1. The objective of the construction of the tabernacle and the temple = to obtain the perfect will of God, obedience to the guidance of God and to revive all glory of God. 2. The revelation of the book of Leviticus (the secrets of prayer) = The 5 offerings, the affliction of the great priest, the entering of the holy places, the seeking of God in day and night, all this yields practical results. 3. How the Lord has taught us to pray (The Lord’s Prayer) = Immanuel, the revival of the perfect will, righteousness, holiness and victories in troubles. iii. The rise and fall of the state of heart of Israel will determine the rise and fall of the temple 1. Those who preserve the status of a person with the 8 beatitudes = those who preserve the love towards the Lord, those who seek the perfect will and obedience to the Lord and those who have the heart to testify the Lord in order to bless others. c. <Acts 1: 1‐14> The revival of the 120 disciples has brought revival to the whole Jerusalem, all of Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth. i. <Romans 1: 16> The Gospel of Christ it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jews first and also for the Greeks. Later it is for the Romans, Europeans, Americans, then later for the
Asians, especially the Chinese of the 21 century, until the ends of the earth… ii. Jerusalem, whole of Judea, Samaria, Antioch, Asia (Turkey), Macedonia, Rome. iii. Acts 1: 1‐11 1: 13‐14 2: 5‐47 8:4‐8, 11: 19‐30, 13: 1‐3…28: 30‐31. d. Lord Jesus Christ wept over Jerusalem because of its condition i. The Lord is always present from yesterday, today and forever and that all of His glory, love, righteousness and richness are always with us. ii. The Lord’s words, accomplishment, spirit and a fervent heart has won over the disciples whom are called to be blessed today… iii. The Lord’s focus and vision are to obtain our lives as His citizens. He hoped that the Jerusalem could revive at that time. If we invite the King to work in our lives, everything will be revived a. The personal revival i. We have to have deep believe (He holds the ultimate authority over all of the heavens and the earth). ii. Understanding (invites Him to have dinner together). iii. Determination (He is always the first in our lives as He sits on His throne) = Total destroy of what is old and rebuilt. iv. Examination (His pureness, gentleness and perfect will). v. Obedience (understand that He is in our body and spirit, lives, relationships, resources and He leads us in every matters). b. The revival of the church i. The Lord has gathered all groups of disciples <Acts 1: 1‐ 14>. ii. The Lord has given them the vision of the era <Acts 1: 8>. iii. The spirit of the Lord has unite their hearts and encouraged them to pray <Acts 1: 13‐14>. iv. The spirit of the Lord filled them and provided them with the strength so that they have the testimonies of the Immanuel <Acts 2: 1‐4>. v. The Lord testifies Himself as the Christ through the life, testimonies and the preaching of Gospel of His disciples. vi. The Lord increases the number of people in the church through His disciples whom He has trained <Acts 2: 37‐ 41>. vii. The Lord’s disciples have their holy communion in the temple and at home (learning, enjoying and testifying Christ) <Acts 2: 42‐27>. ** Without a blessed church, there will not be any blessed disciples of Christ; Without the blessed disciples, there will not be any blessed churches. c. The rise of Jerusalem i. Christ the Lord opens the doors of Gospel through the network of the disciples <Acts 8: 4‐8, 11: 19‐30…28: 30‐31>. ii. In every place, Christ must first obtain a family who is called to be blessed <Matt 10: 11 / Acts 16: 14‐15, 17. 1‐9, 18: 1‐4…>. iii. With that family who is called to be blessed, it will be the center of training for His disciples, and through that, it obtains more disciples of Christ in other regions <Acts 2: 41‐47, 11: 19‐30, 18: 9‐11, 19: 8‐20, 28: 30‐ 31>.
The establishment of churches in each region <Arcs 13: 1‐3 the church of Antioch, 14: 23 the church of Lystra, 16: 40 the church of Philippi, 17: 1‐9 the church of Thessalonica, 18: 1‐11 the church of Corinth, 19: 8‐20 the church of Ephesus, 28: 30‐31 the church of Rome. The more the churches communicate at the right time, the more the works of the Gospel will be raised. The number of disciples will be increased, more churches will be established and this will result in the revival of the people of God <Colossians 4: 16, Colossians 4: 7‐ 18, Romans 16: 1‐27> .
