Hosanna Palm Sunday (09th of April 2022)

Blessed Hosanna! Many Jews have seen how Jesus went around and performed so many miracles. As the climax of all these wonders, He raised Lazarus from the dead. Seeing all these and recognizing him as the Messiah they had been expecting for generations, His disciples and the believers greeted Him with Hosanna while he was coming to Jerusalem. Then the crowd that went ahead and the others that came behind raised the shout:

"Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessings on Him who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the Heavens" (Mathew 21.9).

The celebration of Hosanna is also looking forward to the glorious Second Coming of the Lord. While singing Hosanna using fresh palm leaves they are joining the crowd who were robed in whites and had palms in their hands. During this Hosanna celebration let us accept Christ as our Lord, Saviour and King. He is humble and meek and coming towards the New Jerusalem or the dwelling place of the glorious King which is our heart itself (1Cor.3.16). Let us remember His Glorious Second Coming and prepare us with white robes and simple Hosanna leaves. Let us remember our responsibility towards the whole world and the entire nature and bring it before God as a good, acceptable and perfect offering to the Lord our God.
