One week after his resurrection Jesus told Thomas, who had at first doubted Jesus' resurrection, "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed".
Morning Service: Daniel 7 (part 3).
Daniel sees in his God-revealing vision that believers in the future will be terribly persecuted. This persecution will last until God Most High intervenes and all that opposes God will be brought crashing down. The only thing that will remain will be the never ending kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Evening Service: Luke 4;1-13.
Jesus is led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit. Here he is tempted by Satan to sin against God and to turn away from God's purpose for him, which is to die on the cross. Jesus stands firm and is able to go to the cross and give himself as the unblemished sacrifice for sin.
On the first Palm Sunday Jesus rode into Jerusalem. He claims to be God's chosen king. He is meek an lowly. The crowds didn't realise that this king will soon hang a cross and be forsaken by God as the ultimate sacrifice.
Morning Service: Daniel 7:13-14.
When Jesus claims to be the Son of Man he declares to be the "one like a son of man" who comes with heaven's glory and be given an everlasting kingdom. The challenge is not to remain rebelling against heaven's authority by bowing the authority of Jesus Christ, the Son of Man.
