Cry Out

37 As He was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of His disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” 41 And when He drew near and saw the city, He wept over it, ~ Luke 19:37-41

Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem when His disciples began to praise and rejoice because of Him. They weren’t just praising God for a good teacher; they were praising Him for their Messiah. This angered the Pharisees, and they wanted Jesus to rebuke them for praising God for Him. They wanted to silence the disciples, and nothing has changed to this day.

When we praise Jesus, we’re told to be silent. We’re told the Church isn’t essential. We’re told to keep our beliefs to ourselves. But how can we not speak of what we have seen and heard? And how can we not praise the Savior of the whole world? Jesus was, is, and always will be so much more than a good teacher. Jesus is so great that if we are silent and refuse to praise Him, the very rocks would cry out. Why? Because Jesus is God, and God is more than worthy of praise.

Jesus is coming back very soon. The signs of the times are appearing everywhere. Are you ready for His return? Are you praising Him as He deserves? Or will you remain silent and allow the rocks to praise Him?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Cry Out Before The Rocks Do.
