41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42 and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”
This passage is a prophecy of Jesus as he came to Jerusalem for the Passover celebration.
I had a little understanding of this passage. Knowing the Bible, knowing the history of Jerusalem, I could piece together pretty well what was going on here.
I skim read MacArthur's sermon, because I knew the break down had to be deeper than I was going!
MacArthur says this....(for a quicker read through, I've made bold the points that stood out to me)
That’s the question you have to answer. It’s history but it’s a monumental lesson to the catastrophe of rejecting Christ. Don’t follow that path. Become one of Him, embrace Him as your Savior.
