Today we don’t offer sacrifices, but we can and must offer praise and thanksgiving to our Father in heaven, not because we are required to, but out of a grateful heart and a heart full of love for Him. God is good all the times. He is the God of gods, and the Lord of lords and His faithful love endures forever ( Psalm 118 ).
“ Then Jesus, knowing that they meant to come and seize Him that they might make Him King, withdrew again to the hillside by Himself alone – John 6: 15 “.Our Lord perceiving this, either by some words which they had dropped, or by his penetration of their hearts, retired before the project that been fully formed, or could be put into execution. It was not tell a considerable time afterwards that even the disciples fully understood that his Kingdom was not of this world – John 18: 36 ” My kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my kingdom is not of this world. “
Worldly wisdom would have said: ” Declare thyself king to the desires of the people this will be the readiest ( in a suitable for an action or situation fully prepared ) way of converting the Jews ” No Jesus must die for the sin of the word ( John 3: 16 ) – No man’s heart can be turned to God by outward pomp or splendor – No saving change can be brought about by any might or any power, but by the Spirit of the Lord of hosts:
Zechariah 4: 6 “ …this ( addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olives trees ) is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying not by might, or by power, but by My Spirit ( of whom the oil is a symbol ) is says the Lord of hosts. ”
