Sing Hosanna To The King Of Kings
Focus: Isaiah 51:11 - KJV
11. Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
There is great joy awaiting everyone that is the redeemed of the Lord. We are made to sing praises unto God ceaselessly. Jesus gave us an example when He was about to transit: He went into Jerusalem riding on a colt. Every eye that saw Him had occasion to praise Him, singing Hosanna to the son of David, thereby acknowledging Him as their king, and honoring Him as such. Those who did that at the time assumed He was up to deliver them from Roman bondage; hence they sang with so much joy exalting their king. Little did they know that He did not come to deliver using physical sword. When towards the end of the week they did not see Him do any exploit towards delivering them but rather He was arrested, and was delivered to the Roman authority, like a lamb to the slaughter, they changed tune to “crucify Him”. Had they known that truly, scripture was being fulfilled when they sang Hosanna, they would not have delivered the King of glory to be slain.
The story is different now. The Lord already brought us salvation through that death that He submitted Himself to. Therefore, from hence, everyone that is a partaker of the blessing of His redemption has the visa to enter into the presence of the Lord in Zion. The beauty of that is that, we only enter Zion singing praises. Why? Everyone that carries joy and gladness on his inside is never given again unto sorrow or bowing of head. There is some form of exhilarating joy welling up from their inside that cannot be suppressed. Such joy forms praises from their very inside, to express their gratitude unto their Redeemer. Such is their permanent status when they leave the earth, to dwell in Zion, forever. Nonetheless, from the time of their redemption here on earth, as they make up their minds to stay perpetually in the presence of their Redeemer, sorrow and mourning fly away from them, and they keep appearing before the Lord with joyful songs.
Beloved, as the redeemed of the Lord, let us all sing with joy always, as we approach the mountain Zion, which is the City of the Lord. Let us exhibit gladness in the presence of our Lord, who saves us from calamity that the enemy is forever pushing, and has given us the joy of salvation. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, that the King of kings deserves all praise, honor and adoration. As we do so here on earth, we are translated to His presence where there are pleasures evermore; and even those who observe us shall find that indeed, the Lord has done great things for us. When eventually we appear before the King in Zion, we will not be strangers but people accustomed to singing Hosanna. Of course, we will not be like them who turned around to sing crucify Him; because we know our Redeemer and trust Him, in whom we believe.
SOLUTION: Knowing God affords the strength to praise Him, no matter what. Let us learn to know Him whom we believe. It is from that knowledge that we will appreciate His awesomeness and being. When we do, then praising Him is not coerced, but flows naturally.
Please pray: Father, I will praise you forever, for all you are, and you have been to me. Help me to forever be in your presence no matter what the enemy may be putting up against me.
