From the Desk of Pastor Richard Saxon

THE KING IS COMING

     After having just come from Israel and spending quite a bit of time in Jerusalem, we saw how many of the Jewish people are in high anticipation of the coming of the Messiah. They are looking for their promised Messiah. They are praying for their promised Messiah. They are preparing for their promised Messiah. The problem is, He has already come and they missed Him. They were looking for the wrong kind of King.

     Just a few Sundays ago we walked down the Palm Sunday road, the road that comes from the top of the Mount of Olives and leads down to the Garden of Gethsemane, and then into the Old City. I can picture in my mind how that little, rocky road was lined with excited people, eagerly looking in anticipation for the King to come. They knew the scriptures and this really seemed to be Him. And when Jesus made His way down that road into Jerusalem, they carpeted it with palm branches as a welcome for royalty. They waved palm branches and shouted to the tops of their lungs, “Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” Hosanna is actually the English for the Hebrew hôshia-nā’ and is short for hôšî‘â-nā’, which is Aramaic and means “save or help us now.”

     These people knew Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.” To them this was the long-awaited King they had so eagerly longed for. Great numbers of people shouted and praised Him as He entered Jerusalem. Sadly, many turned away after only a few days when Jesus did not fulfill their worldly hopes and desires. Some in fact would be among the group that shouted on Friday, “Crucify Him!” they had missed the King.

     Today people are still looking for something. They are eagerly searching for someone that can save them. But many are looking in the wrong places and for the wrong type of savior. The King came the first time as a humble Savior and Lord, but they missed Him. The King is coming again, but He is coming for His Church. He is coming in the clouds. He is coming to “catch away” those who believe in Him, and those that serve Him. Something in the air tells us it can’t be long. The Holy Spirit is wooing in the final invitation. From the scriptures we know it is near. Now is the time to look up, for our redemption is drawing near. Now is the time to win our families to the Lord. Now is the time to busy about our Father’s business by spreading the gospel message. Now is the time to stay true to Jesus. Now is the time to eagerly proclaim, “The King is coming!”

NORTH GREENWOOD VISION STATEMENT
