      The Blessed One    

      Some blessings come in disguise. They seem like troubles. The good God always has good reasons for what takes place in His world. Christ is the leading example.  

      The crowds adored Jesus on what we call Palm Sunday. They sang Psalm 118:26, “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.” The religious leaders were outraged. “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples” (Luke 19:39).  

      These same religious leaders were so angry, they plotted to destroy Jesus. The blessing seemed to turn into a curse. Acts 2:23 interprets.
      “This Man delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.”  

      The greatest act of treachery in human history was the foremost blessing. Godless men put Christ to death. Once again, the Bible interprets. “Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). God accepted this sacrifice. “God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death“(Acts 2:24).  

      Evil becomes good. So it is with us, if we love God. “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God“(Romans 8:28).
      Christ is the ultimate example. “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord”
