........They cast their garments upon the colt, and they put Jesus thereon.And as he went ,they spread their clothes in the way.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 his mighty works that they had seen;Saying , Blessed be the King that comes in the name of the Lord :peace in heaven, and glory in the highest . And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him,Master rebuke thy disciples . And He answered unto them, I tell you that,if these should hold their peace , the stones should immediately cry out . Luke 19 35-40

This Bible commentary is By Dr. J Vernon McGhee.

The crowd did not know the the full significance of this action.A few days later the crowd cried"Crucify Him "Even the disciples did not know the significance until later : "these things understood not his disciples at the first:but when Jesus was glorified , then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him ."(John 12"16)
This episode of coming into Jerusalem as the Lord Jesus Christ did ,was bound to incite the Roman rulers to act because of two things . First, He accepted the reverence and loyalty of these followers. In the second place, he did not silence them .
The Lord Jesus Christ recognized that eternal and significant issues were at stake and that to rebuke His followers would force the silent stones to cry out . In, fact they were crying out ,for when Nehemiah had rebuilt the walls and gates of the city, there was a message in the stones . Those very stones and walls were proclaiming the gospel message,and the gates were fairly shouting ,"Lift up your heads, O ye gates , and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors and the King of Glory shall come in "( Ps24:7 ).
It should be remembered that the so-called triumphal entry ended at the cross.Christ will come the second time in triumph.Hebrews 9:28says, "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation . "The second time the Lord will come to this earth, His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives. (see Zech 14:4)Then the Lord will enter Jerusalem . His true Triumphal Entry will be at His second coming.His first entry into Jerusalem took him to the cross to die for our sins. By His death and resurrection ,Salvation is offered unto us .

I also have Big Daddy Weave singing :Every time I Breathe . This has blessed me this past week.

Have a Blessed week!


  1. I love this post! This song touched my heart as my day was not turning out to be very good. The words IRS and taxes do not thrill me.

    So instead I visited all the Spiritual Sunday posts. I am down to the last two and am enjoying all of these great posts offering so much kindness and encouragement. Please stop by to my blog. I would greatly appreciate having you visit. Thank you.

  2. I also visit all the Spiritual Sunday posts. I start on Friday and usually finish by Monday. Each post ministers to me in a different way. Thanks for sharing, Myrna. I hope you have a great week!

  3. Thank you for this the song too..God bless....

  4. Beautiful post along with an equally beautiful song. My Sunday afternoons are filled with being inspired by reading Spiritual Sundays posts, so thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    May God richly bless you each and every day!

  5. That's a good song. I had not heard it before. Thank you for sharing it. I am looking forward to that second triumphal entry. I have the feeling it can't be too far off.

  6. J Vernon McGee is one of my all time favorite radio preachers.

    I had the privilege to hear him preach a couple of times back in the early 1980s just before he died.

    I'm thankful God is still using his radio ministry.

  7. Hi Myra,
    Thank you for your post. I couldn't listen to the song because I live in Canada and a message came up telling me it had something to do with Copywrite laws?? Anyway, I'll take your word for it, that's it's a good one! Have a wonderful week.


  8. Blessings Myrna, Triumphant entrance for the King of kings! I'm so thankful that He triumphed over the grave and for His precious sacrifice and Resurrection power that gives us salvation for eternity. Beautiful post from beginning to end except I, too, could not view Big Daddy Weave because of restrictions out of the country since I am out of the country. He is a marvelous God! And I am so in love with Him. Have a wonderful week! (I was here earlier but did not comment because I could not see the song but I thought it was just my computer because all You Tubes were white spaces over the weekend).Sorry.
    You had much more that I could have commented on. :)

  9. Great post! Enjoyed all of this....
