When Jesus entered, he knew had the Jewish people accepted Him as the Christ peace and salvation would have been theirs. This is how Jesus sees each man today.
Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem
Luke19.41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.
Jesus points out the principal that when fathers are obedient to the word of God, it not only goes well for the father it also goes well for the children. As fathers worried about our children’s future, the only thing we can do is turn to the Lord. Luke19.43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
The triumphal entry into Jerusalem demonstrates that those that receive the Lord receive peace. Luke19.37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
When Jesus speaks peace, there is peace and the result is a great calm. Mark4.39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Luke2.14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased…
These verses are a great guide for peace in every father’s life. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN
