Dear John and Doves!
Mike Curtiss pointed out that The Stones are Crying Out, because so many are Silent about Jesus' Coming!! Awesome!! I totally agree that it is so. Glory to God!!
Sharing this as encouragement to The Bride of Christ awaiting The Glorious Appearing of her Bridegroom. The Time Has Finally Come!
Looking for that BLESSED HOPE, and THE GLORIOUS APPEARING of The Great God and Our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who GAVE Himself (John 3:16) for us, that He might REDEEM (save, deliver) US from all iniquity (evil, darkness), and purify UNTO HIMSELF a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:13-14
The crying out of the stones was Jesus' response to the Pharisees, when they asked Him to rebuke/silence the people (The Multitude) of His Disciples for Singing, Shouting, Praising Him Coming Near/Into Jerusalem on THE COLT/DONKEY (ON WHICH NO MAN HAS EVER SAT, brought to Him by TWO of HIS DISCIPLES send ahead of Him), Descending on The Mount of Olives!!
The Stones may very well be crying out!! Thank You Jesus! Knowing all these things, may we all sound The Trumpet... making A Noise... for The King is Coming! HalleluYah!!
And when He was COME NIGH, even now at The Descent of The Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of The Disciples began to Rejoice and Praise God with A Loud Voice [singing] for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be The King that Cometh in The Name of The Lord: Peace in Heaven, and Glory in The Highest.
And He [Jesus] answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these [the disciples rejoicing, praising Him] should hold their peace, The Stones would immediately Cry Out. And when He was COME NEAR, He beheld the city, and WEPT over it,
Whilst reading the whole of Luke 19 again, it came to me about The Parable where Jesus spoke about The Ten Pounds given to His Ten Servants. He told The Disciples this when He was yet Near Jerusalem and they, at the time, were thinking that The Kingdom of God would immediately appear. This was Before He was to Descend on The Mount of Olives about which The Stones would be Crying Out!?
Jesus is That Nobleman He referred to in The Parable! We are those Ten Servants... Occupying... Labouring... BEING ABOUT THE FATHER'S BUSINESS CALLING ALL TO REPENTANCE, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!! We know that some refuse to have Jesus Christ as Reigning King, therefore may WE be found to have been FAITHFUL with that which has been given us and WORTHY to receive OUR REWARD of OUR LORD... to Reign with Him in Glory!!
And as they heard these things, He added and spake A Parable, because He was NIGH to Jerusalem, and because they thought that The Kingdom of God should immediately Appear. He said therefore, A CERTAIN NOBLEMAN went into a far country to receive for himself A Kingdom, and to RETURN.
Stay at Jesus' Feet. Use That POUND!! Truly Jesus is Coming!! Glory to God in The Highest!!
Your Brother in Christ, Mathew.
WATCH ye therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS, that ye may be accounted WORTHY to ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and To Stand Before The Son of man.
