“In the Loop”
John 12: 16: “These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him.” The Hosannas, the palm branches, the donkey: it seems like everyone knew what was going on – except Jesus’ disciples, because they were doing it for their own glory, and not His. While they were thinking, “The King is here, bring out the twelve thrones!” God was doing His work His way. What they thought was a dream come true was about to turn into their worst nightmare, and they never saw it coming. It is only when are committed to God’s work, God’s way, for His glory, that we can prophetically understand what is happening.
