The Next Time….

Sunday is what we commonly call Palm Sunday. It commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem before Passover, just a few days before His death and glorious resurrection.

The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord !’ The King of Israel!” Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: “Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey’s colt.” His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him.
John 12:12‭-‬16 NKJV

Upon Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, the disciples remembered the prophecies concerning these things:

The above is just one fulfilled prophecy surrounding His first coming. We can be sure future prophecies will be fulfilled just as well.

The next time Jesus arrives in Jerusalem, it will not be upon a donkey and He will no longer present Himself as the perfect sacrificial Lamb. Let’s look again at the book of Zechariah:

The book of Revelation has something to say about the next time Jesus arrives in Jerusalem, too:

The next time Jesus arrives in Jerusalem, it will be as the Lion of Judah: the King of kings and Lord of lords.

To Him be all glory, honor, power and praise forever and ever!

Maranatha!

A MASSIVE Coincidence?

Have you heard of Event 201?

Event201-logo

What if I told you that in October 2019 a panel of global experts from the fields of business, public health and government met in New York (organized/supported/funded by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) to discuss, simulate and solve a global catastrophe? What if I told you this tabletop exercise centered around a global health concern and its affects on the global economy, and how governments, businesses and health professionals should respond in such an event?

Recent years showed that the world sees about 200 epidemics per year. The panel met to discuss how to respond should EVENT 201 become a global pandemic. What if I told you the simulated health concern -the “pretend” pandemic- discussed in October 2019 was centered around a possible coronavirus outbreak?

That was Event 201.

A massive coincidence? They say it is. They say Event 201 did not predict our current predicament. A coronavirus scenario was likely, so that’s what they simulated.

But do we really think they would admit it if they did know? It’s very possible the individuals on the panel did not know, but the left hand often does not know what the right hand is doing-correct?

I don’t know if I believe in such a large coincidence. Decide for yourself.

Take a look at the video recap posted by the group that hosted the event. The hypothetical news reports and proposed global response are eerily familiar.
