Tag Archive: Crucifixion
“And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee (Matthew 21:9-11).”
The word, “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise, or joy. When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, He was met with great adoration by the people who placed palm leaves in His pathway. This expression of adoration, praise and joy leading up to the crucifixion, symbolizes the victory that Jesus would gain on the cross. Palm Sunday is a time to celebrate Jesus’ journey to the cross, and the ultimate sacrifice that He made, that would be the greatest victory in Christianity. It is the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to Easter.
As we celebrate Palm Sunday, you need to understand your journey here on this earth. Remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for you, and that you have already overcome by His blood.

If the enemy is trying to humiliate you in any way, I would like you to understand that with humility comes honor. Don’t let the enemy steal your joy and cause shame and dishonor in your life. People will often times try to put you down, speak to you in a manner that is humiliating or disrespectful, but you have to maintain your composure. You do not have control over how others act or what they say, but you do have control over your own actions and attitudes.
Jesus had been mocked and humiliated before His crucifixion, but afterwards came His greatest honor. If you are being put-down and humiliated in any, you have to understand that your honor is just about to be bestowed upon you. All those who might have mocked you, spoke bad about you in any way, or disrespected you, will see your honor.
Before honor is humility (Proverbs 18:12).
Grace and peace to you.
I have been so busy today, after a break from the Memorial holiday yesterday, but I just stop by to tell somebody that if you are going through your darkest moment, your victory is about to be accomplished. The light is about to be risen upon you today. So arise, shine; for the light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you (Isaiah 60:1).
It is when you are going through your darkest hour, your victory is most powerful and successful.
In the gospel of Luke 23:44-46, It was stated that about the sixth hour there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. This was so, because Jesus had already given up the ghost – meaning, His spirit had already left His body, because He was dead. However, this moment of darkness was about to bring the biggest victory in the life of Jesus.
In Luke 24:4-6, when the women came to the sepulcher to bring spices to anoint His body, they saw two men standing there in SHINING garments. These two men were angels with bright ray of light shining from their garments. The light symbolized the victory and power that was gained through those hours of darkness. The sight of the angels and no body in the sepulcher caused the women to be afraid; But the angels said to them, “Why seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!”
Praise the Lord today, if you are going through your darkest moment, because your dead situation is about to be resurrected.
