“See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.”
Matthew 20:18-19 ESV
Are you truly listening? We often listen enough just to get the gist of what is told, but we don’t fully listen.
Jesus told His disciples many times that He was going to Jerusalem and was going to be crucified and then rise on the third day.
But even with this information, they weren’t ready.
The thing is that God doesn’t withhold any information from us. He lays it all out, right in front of us to know, accept and believe in.
The problem is we don’t listen. We don’t try to understand.
The crucifixion is a fulfillment of the Jewish feast of Passover. Isaiah 53 gives even more information.
It’s all there! Don’t miss it because you are distracted by the things of this world. Don’t miss what Jesus has for you in exchange for something that is worthless or passing away.
God always reveals what He is going to do! True Believers understand this. Do you?
Father, thank You for revealing Your ways and plan. Help me to stay focused on You.
