Matthew 26:11-12 “For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always.  For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial.”
I firmly believe that the disciples were not willing to believe that Jesus was going to be crucified! They thought He should be King right then. But that was not the plan, He had to save us first! Now, He IS coming again. This time HE WILL BE KING!
