36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
37 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 for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38 Saying, Blessed be the king that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
ref. - Matt 21:8 - And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strayed them in the way.
Matt 21:9 - And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Mk 11:9 - And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
Lk 2:14 - Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Hab 2:11 - For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it.
There is no covering it up! And there is no silencing the disciples! Glory to God in the highest! Let it be proclaimed that Jesus Christ is Lord!! We, as the disciples of this day, have a great desire to worship and praise God as well as serve him in the utmost! There also are those who have been chosen to give us the true Gospel as well! Though there be many that try to silence our voice or upend the Gospel with sorcery and false direction, this voice can not be silenced! We are taught from the truth and therefore we know the truth! It has set us free. When many try to cover up the Gospel and God's true worshippers, there will just be ten thousand more behind us that will confirm the truth through obedience to the truth! Praise God that out of millions of people he looked down on us and said, these are my children, I will draw them to my Son! Just as the people of this day were willing to lay down their garments to smooth the path for Christ, so shall we lay down our earthly things and worldly beliefs to pave a path for Him! Glory to God in the highest! In this scripture it says that they that went before and they that followed cried, saying, Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. This meaning that no matter who or what tried to cover the Gospel, even with damnable heresies(man made doctrine) and worldly ideas, they were not successful. From the beginning of time until the end of time, there will be disciples who will serve the Lord and will praise the Lord! The wonders and mysteries of this Gospel and this life will not be hidden! If one true worshipper is silenced by the worldly acts of man, ten more like them will rise up! If all mankind, all followers of Christ, were put to death and silenced right now, the rocks and the walls would begin to cry out and the name of the Lord would be raised up anyhow! If one true minister of the Gospel is brought to silence by the disobedience and hatred of worldly men, the Gospel will still be brought as God will replace him with another voice, a stronger voice, a holier voice, that will raise up the disciples of God and crush in to powder they who oppose the almighty order the God has put in. There is power in the name of Jesus Christ! He is the Son of God! He is worthy to be praised! He is worthy to be worshipped! He is worthy to be served! He was, is, and always will be, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!! Won't you serve him today? Have a great day!!
