Theme : MOUNT OLIVES
And in the daytime He was teaching in the temple, but at night He went out and stayed on the mountain called Olivet. Then early in the morning all the people came to Him in the temple to hear Him.
-Jesus was teaching in the temple during the daytime but at night He went out & stayed on mount Olivet/Olives. In the morning all the people (Jews & Gentiles) went to the temple to hear Him.
-Mount Olives is the throne of God where Jesus went out (ascended) at night.
-In Luke 22:46, Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.” This was in the Garden of Gathesemane after coming from Mt Olives where He was later arrested.
-Jesus encourages us to pray persistently lest we fall into temptations. When we pray our spirits share with Jesus in Mount Olives.
Lord Jesus, give me the grace to pray persistently so that I may not fall into temptations. Let me share with You in the throne of God where all good things come. Have mercy on our nation during this time of unrest & protect us from the evil one who’s work is to kill, steal & destroy. Take control Jesus, as all power & authority belongs to You. Amen.
