Coming events. April27
From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Matthew 16:21-23
The tension between Jesus and the Pharisees had been growing for some time. These confrontations were casting a shadow of what was to come. Sure enough it was the Pharisees who played a prominent role in crucifying Jesus. It seems that coming events often cast a shadow before them. If this is true, my what is coming soon! So many things seem to be lining up for the end time events. Peter said, no Lord we won’t let this happen to you. This is when Jesus rebuked Him, telling peter you are savoring things of man and of the earth but I have come to do Gods will. Oh church, let’s be praying for the Lords will to be done in these days ahead.
