FESTAL MATINS HYMNS PALM SUNDAY

PALM SUNDAY
Our Lord Jesus Christs Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem is celebrated by the Holy
Church on Palm Sunday.
By the time of Christ, Jewish Nationalism had led to the expectation of a political
Messiah to deliver them from Roman oppression and rule and to re-establish
King Davids earthly Kingdom.
In utter Humility, our Lord Jesus emphasised the fact that He had not come to
establish an earthly Kingdom by not entering the great city of Jerusalem on a
horse or in a chariot like other conquering heroes but instead He was seated on
a humble, untrained young donkey a real sign of His Humility and Peace. (SEE
THE BOOK OF ZECHARIAH 9:9 LXX)

Christs Triumphal Entrance into the Holy City declared the Establishment of the
Kingdom of Almighty God.
It was also a Divine Promise of our Lord Jesus Christs final, Glorious Entrance into
the Heavenly Jerusalem together with all Faithful Believers and of His accepting the
New Jerusalem as His Pure Bride. (SEE THE REVELATION OF CHRIST THE APOCALYPSE 21:2)
THE ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CHURCH THE NEW JERUSALEM - IS TRULY THE ALL PURE BRIDE OF CHRIST WHO IS
THE DIVINE BRIDEGROOM

St Matthew recorded in his Holy Gospel that there was a colt as well as a donkey,
which our Holy Church Fathers regarded as representing the Faithful Hebrews
and the Gentiles who are brought together in the Kingdom of God.
At Vespers of Palm Sunday we sing: Thy riding upon a foal prefigured how the
untamed and uninstructed Gentiles would pass from unbelief to Faith.
Those people who spread their clothes upon the ground before our Lord Jesus
Christ, did so as a spontaneous gesture of reverence to a great King, which
symbolises our own need to lay down our flesh and indeed, our very life for
Christ.
Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord! was a Divinely Inspired
Prophecy of King David, which referred to the Messianic Expectation. [PSALM 117:25
26]

It was recited daily for six days during the Feast of Tabernacles, and seven times on
the Seventh Day of the Feast as branches were waved.
Hosanna! means Save, we pray!
At Vespers of Palm Sunday we sing: Keep the Feast with the children, and holding
branches in your hands, sing Hosanna.... Many Liturgical Hymns of Palm
Sunday emphasise the perfect Praises of the children, who were innocent,
worthy, unashamed and compelled by their Pure Love of Christ - unlike the
sinister and conniving adults who would contribute to a greater or lesser degree
to His betrayal and unjust, illegal arrest, trial, torture and crucifixion.
We are all Called to Glorify Christ in the same joyous and spontaneous spirit of
unashamed and pure Love of God!
In contrast, the adults Praises carried earthly expectations and hidden agendas
which, when left unfulfilled, led them to rebel against our Lord Jesus Christ just a few
days later!
AS USUAL, THE EVIL ONE ALWAYS USES OUR HUMAN WEAKNESSES AND SELFISH DESIRES AGAINST US AND AGAINST
THE WILL THE GOD.
IN THE CASE OF CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR, THE ENEMIES OF GOD USED THE EARTHLY DESIRES AND EXPECTATIONS OF
THE PEOPLE AS AN EXCUSE FOR THEIR UNJUST AND UNLAWFUL PUNISHMENT AND EXECUTION OF CHRIST.
HOWEVER, THE LORD OUR GOD, VOLUNTARILY SUBMITTED TO THEIR EVIL SCHEMES SO THAT HE COULD ENTER
HADES, SMASH OPEN ITS GATES AND SET THE RIGHTEOUS FREE. FROM THAT MOMENT ONWARDS, THE
RIGHTEOUS WOULD REPOSE IN PEACE IN PARADISE UNTIL JUDGEMENT DAY.
