When Jesus needs a colt... (Mark 11:2-3)

"Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’" - Mark 11:2-3

I've always wondered about this. Imagine some strangers coming into your town (it's a small town and you know who should be there and who shouldn't) and beginning to pick a door lock on a truck. You say, "Hey, why are trying to break into that truck?" And when they say "The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately" you think, "Well... thats a good enough reason for me. Let me see if I can help you hot-wire this sucker."

Granted Jesus is Lord. He is God. And so these sorts of things are well within the power of an all powerful God. I just always thought these people in the village must have been idiots. But then it occurred to me that they probably knew exactly what was going on. When Jesus rode into the city people were ready. They weren't surprised. They were throwing down leaves they had brought from their fields and their jackets and praising the Lord.

I'm just wondering what kind of preparations we'll have when He comes back. I'm wondering if maybe He'd like to send some people ahead of time to borrow my car...
