Did you know that the greatest event in history has to do with you? Yes, and on top of that it’s your fault…
Get ready for Holy Week
The Holy Week refers to the most important period in all of human history. And, between the 2nd and 9th of April, throughout Universal, we will experience this event.
What do you need to know:
The consequence of sin is a condemnation that will last for all eternity (Romans 6:23). Therefore, as humanity is flawed, the Lord Jesus had to take the blame in our place. So instead of us dying, He died (and through His sacrifice on the cross). This is what The Holy Week is about.
During Holy Week, Palm Sunday took place (in which the Lord Jesus made the “Triumphal Entry” into Jerusalem).
Afterwards, He went to the Temple and expelled the merchants from there, in the “Cleansing of the Temple”.
He also brought lessons of faith through an order given to a fig tree.
Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha, washed the feet of the Lord Jesus in preparation for the sacrifice to come.
On Thursday, the Holy Supper was held in the company of the disciples.
He also prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, was arrested and went through trials and torture until the cross, erected on Mount Calvary (or Golgotha). There, He took upon Himself the sins of mankind. And he shed His blood in sacrifice, because the Word of God explains that in the blood is life (Leviticus 17:11).
Finally, on Saturday, as victor, Christ took authority out of the hands of the devil (Colossians 2:15) and was resurrected on Sunday, appearing to some disciples.
Do this: just as people, from time to time, look at the calendar to schedule a trip, vacation and get organized, mark this week to have a time with God. From the 2nd to the 9th of April, think about what you can move into your schedule so you don’t miss a day of Holy Week. Because it is a special moment for the person to strengthen the faith in every way”.
