And Will The Stones Really Cry out ? Luke 19:39-40 39Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!" 40"I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." I was wondering why Jesus would say that the stones would cry out in our place . When looking up the use of the word stones , it was a figerative use which was used frequently . God has the power to change " stoney heart" into hearts of flesh . Jesus gave Simon a new name " Peter or Petras "....( which means little stone ) Jesus Christ is the stone the builders rejected ..... the Chief corner stone . We as believers are living stones in God's temple ( 1 Peter 2: 5-8 ) So in other words if we become silent , who will cry out ? God could command the stones to speak . And if the stones could cry out they would magnify their" Builder ". So even more .... shouldn't we talk about our Builder and Architect who has put us in our place in the Temple of the living God ...... to exonerate and bring praises to His name ?
