NIPTO, Day 6 - Irony

Matthew 21:5, 13, and 42 are all prophecies that were fulfilled. That's in ONE chapter. It's just kind of ridiculous. There are hundreds and hundreds of prophecies that were spoken hundreds of years before Jesus' time. One thing that I find ironic is that the pharisees knew their Bible back to front. So when they heard Jesus saying that the prophesies were being fulfilled, they should've listened to him, but they didn't. It's just plain ironic.

Matthew 21:18-19-Early in the morning, as he was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!" Immediately the tree withered. This passage to me is simply IRONIC. Today is just full of irony isn't it?! We've talked about this in my Sunday school class. Figs weren't in season... yeah. That's about it for this one.
Proverbs 13:2- From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence. This relates to the proverb I posted yesterday too. If you're careful about what you say, then you will enjoy good things that come form God.... On the other hand, if you are unfaithful to God, you just want violence. And that's no good.

Revelation 6:16-17- They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"
I'm not sure why, but this verse stood out to me. Hm. Still thinking about that one. I might have to update this post later today or tomorrow.
