Thoughts on Holy Week: A Tale of Two Gardens and Two Trees

Thoughts on Holy Week:  A Tale of Two Gardens and Two Trees

In the Garden the “first Adam” fell. In the Garden the “last Adam” prayed. When Adam fell, he lost his unhindered relationship to his Father and access to the Tree of Life. In another Garden, the Son of Man (the Last  Adam) prayed three times, “Father , if it be Your will take this cup from me…but not my will, but yours be done.” This prayer reveals His humanity. The suffering before Him was unbearable. He was already feeling the weight and agony of the sins of the world upon Him. So much so that He began to sweat drops of blood. So much so that the Father sent angels to strengthen and minister to Him. In the end His love for the Father and for us compelled Him to obedience. It led Him to another “Tree”, upon which He suffered and died. That act of staggering and almost unimaginable love and obedience opened the way back to the Garden and the Tree of Life and intimacy with the Father for us! SelahIn the Garden

Thoughts on Passion Week and Revival

Thoughts on Passion Week and Revival:

While reading the various accounts of the Passion Week in the Gospels several things struck me. First, the same crowd that celebrated His arrival, crying “Hosanna” later cried “crucify Him!” Why? because He disappointed their theological and political expectations.

Second, the religious leaders and theologians were “indignant” (offended) that He healed in the Temple. Why? Because He broke religious tradition and protocol by allowing the “unclean” (blind, lame) on to holy ground and healing them.

Third, His own disciples were “indignant” (offended) that costly oil was poured out on Him. Why? A poverty mindset always sees extravagant worship and radical generosity as wasteful.

And fourth, when Jesus rode into the city, “He saw the city and wept over it” and lamented “You did not know the time of your visitation!”

In contemplating this strange mix of responses to Jesus it occurred to me that it sounds much like how revival is received and treated. Initially, there is great joy. Our prayers have been answered. But it can soon give way to disappointment, offense and indignation. Why? Because when He (who is revival Himself) shows up in our lives and meetings He will do so outside our narrow definitions and expectations. And if we succumb to offense and reject His ways we can “miss the time of our visitation!” This week let’s celebrate Him, receive Him and be extravagant in our worship of Him. Selah

The Father NEVER gives up!

Wow!!! This is true worship! I can’t watch this and not get totally “wrecked!” At about the 5:45 minute mark Jonathan’s wife, Melissa, comes in. It is soooo powerful! It is true…the Father is NEVER giving up on us! This is the Gospel. It is what consumes us! It is why we must take this message to the nations! It is why we must take it to Thailand! It is what the children rescued from human trafficking must hear and experience! Click the link below, enjoy and pass it on. Blessings
