“In Jesus Christ dwells all the fullness of the Divine bodily.” - Colossians 2:6, 9
Kempton New Church

Day 5: February 28


And they led the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on it; and He sat upon it. And many spread their garments in the way; and others cut branches from the trees, and spread them in the way. And they who went before, and they who followed, cried, saying, Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David, who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! (Mark 11:7-10)

By the disciples putting their garments on the donkey and her colt, was represented that truths in the whole complex were submitted to the Lord as the Highest Judge and King; for the disciples represented the church of the Lord in respect to its truths and goods, and their garments represented the truths themselves. The like was represented by the multitude strewing their garments in the way, and also branches of trees. The reason why they strewed them in the way was that by “a way” is signified the truth whereby the man of the church is led. (Arcana Coelestia 9212:6)


Laying garments and palm branches in the way for the Lord, again symbolizes serving the Lord. And this time, that truths when subordinated to the Lord, lead the way to heaven. Was there a time where you felt the Lord leading you directly by His truths from the Word?
