Although I saw this for the first time earlier this year, I've waited to post it until now because it begins with a mall pianist in a Santa hat playing Jingle Bells. :)

On November 13, 2012 unsuspecting shoppers eating lunch at a Food Court in the Seaway Mall in Welland, Ontario, Canada were treated to a performance of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.


You can see that many in the crowd are surprised and perhaps a bit stunned, some are amused, while still others stand and join in on the singing (lyrics below).

A quick internet search reveals that more and more of these 'flash mobs" are going into malls and other places and performing Christian music and Christmas Carols.


As numerous Christian monuments and displays are legally challenged and removed, and our school systems try to silence their Christian students free speech, and businesses try to remove "Christ" from Christmas and refer to it as "the Holidays"...these flash mobs bring to mind Jesus' words on His  triumphal entry into Jerusalem in Luke 19:37-40:

37
When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:


38 “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

39 Some 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.”




 
 
 
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
And of His Christ, and of His Christ;
And He shall reign for ever and ever,
For ever and ever, forever and ever,

King of kings, and Lord of lords,
King of kings, and Lord of lords,
And Lord of lords,
And He shall reign,
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings, forever and ever,
And Lord of lords,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
