'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

This week, in a series of posts, let us consider - the last week in Our Lord and Savior's Life on Earth, His First Coming, and the 'prophecies fulfilled'. There is so much of major importance in this matter.
As I mentioned in our last series of devotions, when we consider what He, God in the Flesh, 'freely gave', as He suffered for our salvation; when we really concentrate on that - we shall become not only 'mature', but, 'humbled'.
Therefore, I find it most 'marvelous' and 'miraculous' that during this 'time of year' with 'Covid-19', and the 'restraints of movement', that we are 'at home' and can actually 'focus' on what really matters - our eternal destination. My prayer is that all will come to realize -as it is written at Romans 8:28:
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
May all see the answer to the most often asked questions of me, 'Is God REAL?'; 'Can GOD be trusted?'
God died for me. It always leaves me, breathlessly amazed, and eager to glorify Him, in any manner possible. How about - you? Let's carefully study the 'parallel' passages of Holy Bible Scriptures, meditatively, without rush. But, we will consider many of the over 300 Old Testament Prophecies of the 'First Coming' of - The Messiah. His 'Second Coming', is still 'imminent'. Therefore:
THE LAST WEEK IN THE LIFE OF JESUS THE CHRIST. PART 1 of 3 [April 5, 9, 12, 2020]
Day 1: Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday Jesus' triumphal entry is recorded in Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19; as prophesied in Zechariah 9:9. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Day 2: On Monday, Jesus Clears the Temple
Monday's events are recorded in Matthew 21:12–22, Mark 11:15–19, Luke 19:45-48, and John 2:13-17.
Day 3: On Tuesday, Jesus Goes to the Mount of Olives
The tumultuous events of Tuesday and the Olivet Discourse are recorded in Matthew 21:23–24:51, 26:14-16; Mark 11:20–13:37, Luke 20:1–21:36, and John 12:20–38. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Day 4: Holy Wednesday The Bible doesn't say what the Lord did on the Wednesday of Passion Week. Scholars speculate that after two exhausting days in Jerusalem, Jesus and his disciples spent this day resting in Bethany in anticipation of Passover.
Just a short time previously, Jesus had revealed to the disciples, and the world, that he had power over death by raising Lazarus from the grave. After seeing this incredible miracle, many people in Bethany believed that Jesus was the Son of God and put their faith in him. Also in Bethany just a few nights earlier, Lazarus' sister Mary had lovingly anointed the feet of Jesus with expensive perfume. [John 11:1-45; 12:1-11]
Carefully read, prayerfully all the Scriptures included herein. Our next post shall be on Thursday, April 9, 2020 with a final post on Resurrection Sunday, April 12, 2020 - understanding Jesus' day by day during His week on earth, over 2000 years ago.
At the same time, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, there will be posts for you to 'read and research' - some of the 'fulfilled' prophecies which occurred at the 'First Coming of Jesus Christ.'
On our last post on Sunday, April 12, 2020, you will learn of the eyewitness accounts in the Gospels providing what Christians believe to be undeniable evidence that the resurrection of Jesus Christ did indeed happen. Two millennia after his death, followers of Christ still flock to Jerusalem to see the empty tomb.
This is so important, for if the 'first' prophecies were fulfilled, surely, the God who cannot and does not lie, [Numbers 23:19; Isaiah 55:11; Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18], shall most assuredly 'bring to pass His Word' in the prophecies of - 'The Second Coming' of Jesus Christ to set up a 'kingdom of God' on this rebuilt earth, and beyond. [Matthew 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 21; John 3; the 'Book' of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, Chapters 1-22]
This, my friends, is most 'encouraging'. And, the most important question any human being must answer:
'Are you, am I, ready to meet our God?' [Amos 4:12] Amen. Amen. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
