Matthew 21:8-11

“And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”


The devil is always out to get you to doubt what you believe. Satan is the author of confusion and he thrives where there is doubt. We all have times of doubt. We all have times where there is simply a mass of swirling confusion inside of our heads. It is in those times that the devil slips in and tries to turn you down a path you are not even sure you want to go down.


Regardless of what the enemy is doing, you can always look back in your life and look at what attracted you to Christ. God always gives you an attraction that brings you to the Word. For instance, it is good to go back to the beginning of your Christian experience to remind yourself how Christ first won your heart. Maybe it was at an altar, with a friend, or in a secluded closet when you first received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Something attracted you to Him.


What attracted you to the Message of the Hour? What attracted you to the Light? What was it that made you say, “There is just something unique about this, and I need it?” Maybe it was a trying life event that brought you to it. Maybe it was a healing that brought you into the Light. Something brought you to it and that cannot be denied.


Don’t let confusion reign in your mind, because it is not the work of God. Look at the Rock you stand on, the Word, and see what attracted you to it. Grab a hold of it as tightly as you can, because the Rock of your Salvation cannot be shaken.


65-0725E - “What Is The Attraction On The Mountain?”

On top of Mount Olive come a little, white donkey coming, walking down the hill, with a group of people fanatically screaming, pulling off palms' leaves off the trees, throwing their clothes in the road, screaming, "Hosanna to the Son of David that comes in the Name of the Lord!" The… this little mule, his Rider was none other than God's anointed Messiah of the hour. God, then, what was He doing? What is that attraction up there on the hill? It's God making history, and God fulfilling prophecy. And that always causes an attraction. It brings all the critics up, the vultures (of this morning's Message), and the eagles also. See? They come together to find out what's going on. Some coming for curiosity, some coming to find fault, others coming to criticize. There's all kinds gathered, as we said this morning: believers, make-believers, and unbelievers. What's on the mountain? Prophecy is being fulfilled. Now we'll see what takes place.
