05-05-2023 Matthew Ch 20 v-1719 Jerusalem way death condemned




Gospel of Matthew Ch 20 v- 17 thru 19

17 As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve [disciples] aside by themselves, and said to them on the way, 18 “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, 19 and hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.”


I met a “Crew” of eight last night. At least I think I counted them right. A family commanding a row in a Zac Williams and Blessing Offor concert in St Petersburg, Florida. “Who is the oldest,” I asked. The girl next to her dad raised her hand, “I am,” she exclaimed. “What an honor to meet you all,” I said aloud commending them for their family participation of attending a Christian musician concert as one big happy family. Dad was holding the youngest a 10-month-old little girl happily smiling. “You are a happy crew for Jesus,” saying aloud, “and that makes my heart glow with goodwill.” Amen. “It is an honor to meet you all. Please can I take a photo of your family and share it in my podcast?” The father and mother shook their head, “yes,” and I snapped a shot of their row. Later, we went to the bathroom and I got a chance to say hi again and share my poem, “You Can’t Imagine.”


I’m sorry I didn’t get their names although I gave them a card of my ministry information and said I’d be writing about them today. You see, they came to hear about Jesus. They came to hear the songs that resonate this amazing love, faith and hope of grace. “The Crew” made my heart feel full because even though they know Jesus was scourged and mocked and Crucified they also know Jesus rose on the Third Day and offered Salvation for anyone who called on Him as their Lord and Savior. “The Crew” said the Name of Jesus just sitting in a crowd. Nice work mom and dad. “The Crew” touched my heart with Redemption yearned. I must say that even though Blessing Offor was blind, he commanded the keyboard and vocals with ease and shared his songs of Truth. Look up the song, “Heaven sounds like rain on a Tin Roof.” Beautiful song. Zac Williams sings his anointed soul with the Lord’s passion and gave a witness that would touch anyone’s heart with hope and faith of Jesus. I advise you to take a listen to them both as anointed men of God sharing Salvation helping others know Recovery. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for Boston aka Keith. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Jerusalem way death condemned**


Jesus Jerusalem up going was He

Aside disciples twelve taken to discuss

Jerusalem way death condemned for Me

Scribes priest chiefs accused of not being tough


Mocked by Gentiles you will see

Crucified and scourged

Day three raised Me be

Tree hanging humanity forged
