  Study Tools

DON’T “KILL THE ROOSTER” ……… LUKE 22:60-62 …… Rev. Jesse W. Evans Jr.

LUKE 22:60-62 AND PETER SAID, MAN, I KNOW NOT WHAT THOU SAYEST. AND IMMEDIATELY, WHILE HE YET SPAKE, THE COCK CREW. AND THE LORD TURNED, AND LOOKED UPON PETER. AND PETER REMEMBERED THE WORD OF THE LORD, HOW HE HAD SAID UNTO HIM, BEFORE THE COCK CROW, THOU SHALT DENY ME THRICE. AND PETER WENT OUT, AND WEPT BITTERLY.

THE ROOSTER STILL CROWS ……………. Luke 22:54-62

THE GOSPEL WRITERS, MATTHEWS, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN WROTE MANY PAGES OF SCRIPT

CONCERNING AND LEADING UP TO THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS.

MANY OF THE SCRIPTURES WERE WRITTEN SO THAT WE COULD HAVE A HISTORY OF JESUS’ MINISTRY.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THE EVENTS OF JESUS’ LAST WEEK ON EARTH LEADING UP TO HIS CRUCIFIXION.

AFTER COMING INTO THE CITY ON SUNDAY,

WE DISCOVER THAT HE SPENT MOST OF THE WEEK TEACHING DURING THE DAY.

AND HIS EVENINGS WERE SPENT IN THE HOME OF MARY, MARTHA AND LAZARUS IN BETHANY.

ON MONDAY JESUS CLEANSED THE TEMPLE AND CHASED OUT THE MONEYCHANGERS, THOSE WHO WERE BUYING AND SELLING IN THE TEMPLE AS HE EXPLAINED TO THEM “ MY FATHER’S HOUSE IS A HOUSE OF PRAYER, BUT YOU HAVE MADE IT INTO A DEN OF THIEVES”.

ON TUESDAY THE SANHEDRIN CHALLENGED HIS AUTHORITY AS JUDAS ONE OF HIS OWN DISCIPLES WAS BARGAINING WITH THE JEWISH RULERS ON WHICH WAY TO BETRAY HIM.

ON WEDNESDAY AT SUNSET WHEN THE PASSOVER BEGAN, PEOPLE REMEMBER HOW GOD HAD SAVED AND DELIVERED THEM OUT OF EGYPT BY ALLOWING THE DEATH ANGEL TO “PASSOVER” ALL THE HOUSES THAT WERE SPRINKLED WITH THE BLOOD OF A LAMB.

ON THURSDAY AS JESUS WAS EATING THE PASSOVER MEAL WITH HIS DISCIPLES HE INSTITUTED THE LORD’S SUPPER OR HOLY COMMUNION.

AND IT IS AFTER THIS SUPPER THAT JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES WENT INTO THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE AND HERE JESUS PRAYED FOR THEM EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD NOT STAY A WAKE FOR ONE HOUR, JESUS PRAYS FOR THEM.

I AM GLAD THAT JESUS IS NOT LIKE US.

I AM GLAD HE NEVER SLEEPS NOR SLUMBERS,

THAT EVEN WHILE WE ARE ASLEEP HE HAS HIS EYES ON US, WATCHING OVER US, KEEPING TROUBLE AWAY.

THEN ON FRIDAY, WHAT WE CALL GOOD FRIDAY, JESUS WAS BETRAYED, ARRESTED, LIED ON, MOCKED, CONDEMNED AND SENTENCED TO DEATH, ….. BUT BEFORE HE WAS CRUCIFIED, PETER ALSO DENIED HIM.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT A GOSPEL ROOSTER

NOTICE THIS ROOSTER:

HE DIDN’T NEED AN INTERPRETER…………. HE DIDN’T TALK IN TONGUES

THIS GOSPEL ROOSTER PREACHED THE SAME MESSAGE OVER AND OVER.

AND, HIS MESSAGE, ……. THIS MESSAGE IS STILL HEARD BY MILLIONS TODAY!

FOR WHEN THE ROOSTER CROWED PETER REMEMBERED THE WORDS OF THE LORD.

AND ITS TIME THAT THE CHURCH REMEMBERED THE WORDS OF THE LORD

FOR WE ALL HAVE AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER ………… DENIED JESUS.

WHEN WE ARE DISOBEDIENT TO THE WORD OF GOD WE ARE DENYING HIM,

WHEN WE HAVE COMMITTED ACTS OF SINS WE ARE DENYING HIM.

GOD’S WORD THE BIBLE IS TO US …………………… WHAT THE ROOSTER WAS TO PETER.

FOR WHEN PETER HEARD THAT ROOSTER CROW HE WAS CONVICTED OF HIS SIN AND HE WEPT BITTERLY.

GOD’S WORD TELLS US THAT ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

HIS WORD TELLS US THAT THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.

Very helpful sermon. I never look at peters rooster in that way but it so true we kill the rooster all the time. Thanks for allowing the Holy Spirit to give us the insight on this.
