Notice the similarity in comparing these two Scriptures in
the use of the words "great multitude" and "palm
branches". These are the ONLY TWO Scriptures,
in all of the Bible, which contain BOTH
the words "great multitude" and "palm
branches". I DO NOT THINK THE LINK IS ACCIDENTAL!
The first Scripture is describing the day
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the colt of a donkey on the
fourth day before the Passover to
fulfill the prophecy. The Day of Palms is
now commonly called Palm Sunday. The Biblical date of Passover
is always Nisan 14, and the fourth day preceeding
Passover is Nisan 11 which is the Day of Palms.
"The next day a GREAT MULTITUDE that had
come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to
Jerusalem, took BRANCHES OF PALM TREES and
went out to meet Him, and cried out:
"Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord !
The King of Israel !"
The next Scripture is ALSO written by
"After these things I looked, and behold, a GREAT
MULTITUDE which no one could count, of all nations,
tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and
before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with PALM
BRANCHES in their hands, and crying out
with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who
sits on the throne, and to the Lamb !"
The "great multitude" in heaven holding "palm
branches" is the raptured Church including
the Christians who made-up the "great
multitude" with "palm branches" who went out to meet
Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem on a colt of a donkey that
day. The reason for the "palm branches" on that
day Jesus rode into Jerusalem was to put down on
the dusty road ahead of Jesus as a sort of pavement for Him to
ride on as an honor to Him.
Ask yourself, why are the "great multitude" in
heaven holding "palm branches" ? This is to show
us, the Christian readers of the Scriptures, the connection
between the raptured Church in heaven and that day
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Nisan 11.
Scripture indicates, in many places, that the rapture
will take place in the First-month which is Nisan. I believe
that these Scriptures tell us that day
of our rapture will be Nisan 11th which is the Day of Palms.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
