PRAISE JESUS; THE KING AND THE LORD WHO IS GOD 2

“ ” Jesus replied, “I tell you, if these [people] keep silent, the stones will cry out [in praise]!” Luke 19:40 (Amplified Bible)
 
In Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, He wasn’t only announcing Himself as the Passover lamb. He also announced Himself as the true Messiah and as the Eternal King.
It was not by a mere excitement the people began to rejoice.
There was something they saw at the coming of the Lord.
They saw their expected Messiah, and their Saviour in His glorious royalty.
When they saw Jesus drawing near, they began to rejoice and to praise God.
They praised God because of the mighty miracles of Jesus.
However, they also knew that He did those miracles because of who He is.
At that moment their tongue couldn’t only declare Him as a miracle worker.
They declared who He is. For He is the King who comes in the name of the Lord.
 
“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, saying:
‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Luke 19:37-38 (NKJV)
 
It was not by mistake they quoted, Psalm 118:26; it was by prophecy.
And as they praised Jesus, and declared Him as the Messiah and the King, the Pharisees were troubled.
 
“But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “ Sir, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!” Luke 19:39 (TLB)
 
They didn’t just ask Jesus to silence the crowd because they were making noise; but because of the things the crowd were saying.
The Amplified Bible brings out the clarity:
 
“Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Him, “ Teacher, rebuke Your disciples [for shouting these Messianic praises].” Luke 19:39 (Amplified).
 
Jesus’ response to the Pharisees revealed His divine preeminence over all things.
” He replied, “If they keep quiet, the stones along the road will burst into cheers!” Luke 19:40
 
Beloved, even if many may deny His Lordship, His creation will ever celebrate Him.
 
” All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Psalm 66:4 (ESV)
 
” The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1 (ESV)
 
Our Lord Jesus, must be the focus and the object of your praise.
Praise Him for who He is, for the greatness of His power and His mighty works.
Praise Him every moment of your life.
 
“…I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1 (ESV)
 
Praise the Lord and thank Him as you wake up from bed, walk around the house, as you step out of the house, and whiles you drive.
As you praise the Lord, you sharpen your perception of Him and increases your consciousness of His presence in your life. (Psalm 103:2)
 
Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God!… (NLT).
 
There is no room for sorrow, when you continually praise the Lord.
Whiles Paul was in prison with Silas, they decided to praise the Lord in the middle of the night. As they praised God, the Bible says, “The prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!” (Acts 16:26 NLT).
 
Oh glory to God…
There is the activation and the working of God’s power when we praise the Lord.
Beloved, Jesus is the King and the LORD who is God; PRAISE HIM WITH THE GLADNESS OF HEART!
Hallelujah
DIG DEEPER
(Psalm 71:8; Colossians 3:16; Psalm 28:7; Psalm 24:8-10; Exodus 15:2; Psalm 100:1-3; Daniel 2:23)
 
WE PRAY:
Father we thank you for who you are to us, your manifested presence and mighty workings of Grace in our lives.
 
ONE YEAR BIBLE READING
Day 64: Deuteronomy 24-26
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– My heart is full of thanksgiving.

– My tongue is full of praise in all I do.
– Oh thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus.
