As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, shouting:
“BLESSED IS THE KING WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!” Luke 19:37-40
Jesus entered Jerusalem to a mixed reception. Some recognized Him as the blessed king, others were threatened and angry at Him. Jesus said that He was divisive. Sometimes He drives a wedge even in family members. Reverend Samuel Lockridge powerfully recites in poetic form who Jesus is in his poem ‘My King’. Its worth listening. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzqTFNfeDnE
What’s been my reaction to Jesus? Am I one who shouts ‘blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’? Yes! He is my King and He is indescribable!
Lord Jesus you are amazing! Thank you that You entered Jerusalem and also my heart.
