SIGNS OF LIFE & VICTORY
John 12:13 “They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!’ ”
The Scene: Crossed date palm branches–looking like crossed swords; signs of life and victory and symbolic of righteousness.*

Revelation 7: 9-10 “After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’ ”
NOTE: The date palm tree is very tall, upright. It bears fruit which can be used in cooking, baking, or eating plain.
