Matthew 21:15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased,

Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

Strong’s Greek Dictionary:

Hosanna …

Hosanna, from the Hebrew language; it means oh save!;

Hosanna, an exclamation of adoration;

John 12:12-16 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.  These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

Life in our modern day is so busy, and as a result it may be that we seldom have time to stop and “focus” on the present moment.  In my mind’s eye that is how I view the past.  I was busy busy busy living life, and in my business it seemed as if my mother would always be there.  I wish that I had taken more time to “focus” on yesterday’s “present moment.”  Yes, there were many blessings in the end, blessings mixed with sadness, but I still think about how much more I could have done for her, or would do for her now, if my mother were still alive.  Things we take for granted.

Over the years my husband and I have witnessed to many Jewish people, most of them elderly.  The times of witnessing have been, and continue to be, both a joy and sorrow to us.  Joy because we have the love of Christ in our hearts for the lost, and sorrow because most reject Gospel truth.  I can sense the Lord’s heart when He lamented over Jerusalem.

Time after time the Lord puts precious souls before us and gives us the opportunity to witness.  My husband always prays for “divine appointments” and God answers those prayers.  In the past few weeks we had two opportunities to witness to Jewish people.  They both occurred unexpectedly, and there was much peace and love in both conversations.  I think the people can sense that you love them even though they do not believe what you are saying.  One of the Jewish people, a man, was orthodox.  He still talks to us and is friendly even after I told him, with a smile, that we were trying to “covert” him.  The other, a woman, expressed exceptional warmth towards me even after I witnessed to her.  We have planted seeds and now leave the rest to the Lord.

What am I trying to say in all this?


God gives opportunity.

God gives love.

Don’t be afraid.

Evangelize the Jewish people.

Christian Zionism is not the Gospel, it is Politics.

True love is expressed by evangelism.
