GOD HAS A BETTER PLAN
Good News for a Change — Part 3
Buddy Owens / Saddleback Church


“‘Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each
man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household . . . Take care of
them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the
community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take
some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the
houses where they eat the lambs . . . On that same night I will pass through
Egypt and strike down every firstbornboth men and animalsand I will
bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. The blood will be a
sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will
pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. This
is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall
celebrate it as a festival to the LORDa lasting ordinance.’”
                                                                                         Exodus 12:3-14 (NIV)

The _____________ of God brought the ___________of God into

the ___________ of God on the ___________________________.


Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside
and said to them, ‘We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be
betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn
him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged
and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!’”
                                                                                       Matthew 20:17-19 (NIV)

“Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.” 1 Corinthians 5:7b (NIV)


As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of
Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, ‘Go to the village ahead of
you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie
them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the
Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.’
This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: ‘Say to the
Daughter of Zion, “See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a
donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the
donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A
very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches
from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of
him and those that followed shouted, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ ‘Blessed
is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ‘Hosanna in the highest!’
When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, ‘Who
is this?’ The crowds answered, ‘This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in
Galilee.’” 
                                                                                        Matthew 21:1-11 (NIV)

Jesus didn’t come to save us from our _____________________.

He came to save us from our _________________.

Throwing down their cloaks was a sign of _________________
and _________________.

What’s __________________________________________?

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. O LORD,
save us; O LORD, grant us success. Blessed is he who comes in the name of
the LORD . . . With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the
horns of the altar.” 
                                                                                        Psalm 118:24-27 (NIV)


Jesus didn’t come to conquer _________________. He came to

conquer __________________________________.


Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and
selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the
benches of those selling doves. ‘It is written,’ he said to them, ‘“My house will
be called a house of prayer,” but you are making it a “den of robbers.”’
The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them. But
when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he
did and the children shouting in the temple area, ‘Hosanna to the Son of
David,’ they were indignant. ‘Do you hear what these children are saying?
they asked him. ‘Yes,’ replied Jesus, ‘have you never read, “From the lips of
children and infants you have ordained praise”?
And he left them and went out of the city to Bethany, where he spent the
night.” 
                                                                                        Matthew 21:12-17 (NIV)
