When enraged at the loud rejoicings of His disciples and the people, the Pharisees called upon the Lord Jesus to reprove them, He uttered the following significant and ever memorable words: "I tell you that if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out." The Lord, in these words, could not have more clearly evinced His inmost conviction of the invaluable blessing the world enjoyed in Him, and the object of His mission. For what else do they imply than that "I am such a Saviour and bring you such aid, and offer you such felicity, that if it produced no exultation and rejoicing among mankind, the Almighty would animate the lifeless creation to celebrate His love and compassion!” The Lord, in these words, gives us also the assurance, that earth shall never be silent concerning Him and His salvation; for should Israel and Christendom be silent, He would animate the sons of the desert, the dead heathen world, to sing hosannas to Him.~F.
