Listen to the Message
 

Luke 19:39-40
 
V. 39 SOME OF THE PHARISEES IN THE CROWD SAID TO JESUS, “TEACHER, REBUKE YOUR DISCIPLES!”“I TELL YOU,” HE REPLIED, “IF THEY KEEP QUIET, THE STONES WILL CRY OUT.”
 
* EPHESIANS CALLS IT: “THE GOSPEL OF PEACE”
* JESUS CAME TO RULE THROUGH LOVE
 
ZACHARIAH 9:9-11
“SHOUT AND CHEER, DAUGHTER ZION! RAISE THE ROOF, DAUGHTER JERUSALEM!
YOUR KING IS COMING! A GOOD KING WHO MAKES ALL THINGS RIGHT, A HUMBLE KING RIDING A DONKEY, A MERE COLT OF A DONKEY.
 
I’VE HAD IT WITH WAR—NO MORE CHARIOTS IN EPHRAIM, NO MORE WAR HORSES IN JERUSALEM, NO MORE SWORDS AND SPEARS, BOWS AND ARROWS.”
 
V. 11 “AND YOU, BECAUSE OF MY BLOOD COVENANT WITH YOU, I’LL RELEASE YOUR PRISONERS FROM THEIR HOPELESS CELLS.”
 
* EVANGELISM IS TO “SHARE THE GOSPEL”
 
WHEN YOU REMAIN SILENT...WHEN THE ATROCITIES OF OUR WORLD LEAVE YOU FEELING BLANK... THOSE ATROCITIES HAVE BECOME NORMAL
 
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. “OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER.”
 
THE ONLY THING THAT TRULY TRANSFORMS A PERSON IS HOPE.
 
IF YOU LET SUFFERING SILENCE YOU, THEN YOU'VE LOST AT SUFFERING!
 
“COME HOME, HOPE-FILLED PRISONERS!”
 
ESTHER 4:14
FOR IF YOU KEEP SILENT AT THIS TIME, RELIEF AND DELIVERANCE WILL RISE FOR THE JEWS FROM ANOTHER PLACE, BUT YOU AND YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE WILL PERISH. AND WHO KNOWS WHETHER YOU HAVE NOT COME TO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS?”
 
WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, AND IT IS TIME TO START SHINING.
 
ROMANS 10:15
“HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO SPEAK THE GOOD NEWS!”
