The Night The Rocks Cried Out

Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom;and the earth did quake and the rocks rent;

The night they crucified the Lord was one of the most herrific events in human history.The God we claimed to love so much hung on an old rugged cross by the very people he came to save.What a display of love,for even as he was dying a death of such agony,His love for us was so deep He said “forgive them Father for they know not what they do”.And then the rocks cried out.

Jesus said the rocks would cry out for us if we held our peace.Here is the Saviour of the world,the Son of God Himself, and yet we refused to acknowledge His person.And while we mocked and ridaculed Him, the rocks cried outbecause of Him.The temple veil was rent and the earth did quake. Shaking with such force the dead was awakenand their graves were opened.The rocks were rent,like the tearing of the hard hearts of those who would not profess Him causing the centurian to confess “surley this was the Son of God.”

As the resurrection Sunday approaches let us remember all that Jesus went through on that night.The suffering,the rejection,the denial,the mocking ,and the beating.He endured it all just for you and I. He stood in and accepted for us,our judgment and punishment, so that we could have a right to the tree of life. Let us now shout out to a dying world that Jesus is The Christ the Son of the living God,that all can hear and be saved.Don’t let the rocks cry out for you..
