Matthew 21: 1-11
Worship the Lamb!
April 10, 2022
We take a short break from Bible Characters to join Jesus as He enters Jerusalem on donkey. The people praised and worshipped Him for His miracles. Little did they know that they were worshipping the Lamb on a donkey!
Sorry we had an audio glitch about 6:15 into the main message. We continued to record but the audio isn't wonderful...again, sorry.
We continue to pray that you will invite Jesus into your life and make Him Lord of your life, if you haven't already.
And if you need to take care of this please call Pastor Harvey at 323-316-7131 and he will be glad to pray with you.

After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Isaiah 53 - King James Version
1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Here is the text from the sermon.
Matthew 21:1-11 NASB
 When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me.
 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
 "Say TO THE DAUGHTER OF ZION, 'BEHOLD YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU, GENTLE, AND MOUNTED ON A DONKEY, EVEN ON A COLT, THE FOAL OF A BEAST OF BURDEN.'"
 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,
 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on the coats.
 Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road.
 The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!"
 When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, "Who is this?"
 And the crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee."
John 1:29-30 NASB
 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
 This is He on behalf of whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.'
Revelation 13:8 NASB
 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.
Exodus 11:4-6 NASB
 Moses said, "Thus says the LORD, 'About midnight I am going out into the midst of Egypt,
 and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of the Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the slave girl who is behind the millstones; all the firstborn of the cattle as well.
 Moreover, there shall be a great cry in all the land of Egypt, such as there has not been before and such as shall never be again.
Exodus 12:1-13 NASB
 Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
 "This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.
 Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a lamb for themselves, according to their fathers' households, a lamb for each household.
 Now if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor nearest to his house are to take one according to the number of persons in them; according to what each man should eat, you are to divide the lamb. [
5] Your lamb shall be an unblemished male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats.
 You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it at twilight.
 Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
 They shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled at all with water, but rather roasted with fire, both its head and its legs along with its entrails.
 And you shall not leave any of it over until morning, but whatever is left of it until morning, you shall burn with fire.
 Now you shall eat it in this manner: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste-it is the LORD'S Passover.
 For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments-I am the LORD.
 The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Exodus 12:21-23,28 NASB
 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Go and take for yourselves lambs according to your families, and slay the Passover lamb.
 You shall take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and apply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts; and none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.
 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to smite you.
 Then the sons of Israel went and did so; just as the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.

“Ride on, ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin
O’er captive death and conquered sin.”
Again, Denise and I are available for prayer.
