The Triumphal Entry

Lk 19:37 Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works 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 called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.”

40 But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”

This is referred to as the Triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem. Its was that however it began to solidify the final aspect of Christ' purpose to come. He same crowds that shouted Hosanna (save now) would shout crucify Him days later. Salvation is what He will bring, just not how the crowds invisioned it. Jesus would be victor over death. The roman empire was not the greatest enemy, it was sin & death. His triumph had lots of pain involved toward Himself. So much so, He sweated drops of blood with the thought of this cup of wrath. The religious leaders asked Jesus to quite the crowds. His response I love, if they were to be silent, the rocks would cry out! Almost wished they would of quieted down to witness that. Creation groans for the LORD.
