“As they were untying it, the owners asked them, “Why are you untying that colt?” (Luke 19:33 NLT)

Jesus predicted events. He knows what will happen because he is the almighty God and all things belong to him, and all the future is his. He has asked for this donkey (colt) to be brought, as he is going to go to Jerusalem, where he will be killed, as he knew would happen.

“Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!” (Luke 19:33, 38 NLT)

Many people praised Jesus and seemed to love him, but it was only a passing fashion. The very next week, they were nailing him to a cross, to die in agony, for our sins. Jesus is The Lord of everything. What they said was true, although they didn’t really show it by their thoughts and deeds. We also don’t want to face up to our bad attitudes and sinful ways, so we just put on a good face but really we don’t love Jesus at all.

“But as he came closer to Jerusalem and saw the city ahead, he began to weep.” (Luke 19:41 NLT)

Jesus knows what will happen to people who reject him. He knows that being truly sorry and giving our lives to him, is the only way to avoid punishment. He loves us, and he weeps at our stubbornness. He even waits for us to come to our senses. He also knows that his way is the best way, and leads to a real and everlasting life.

“How I wish today that you of all people would understand the way to peace. But now it is too late..” (Luke 19:42NLT)

What fearful words to hear from the Saviour of the world! These people have wasted their time, and rejected him, and now it is too late for them. It is not too late for you.

Jesus calls you to be wise and come to him and ask for forgiveness and a new start…
