-Theme: The city of God, where God resides forever with all His believing children. Zion, the Holy Temple, the gathering of the elect, God’s Jerusalem, the LORD’s love of this place over all of the other dwelling places of Jacob, the Glory of the city of David where the Christ shall reign.
-Historical Insight: Written by the Temple assistants, the sons of Korah as a song in respect of the holy mountain.
-*Application* God has established His Kingdom both materially and spiritually. While the geographic fact of Jerusalem exists, and will exist anew in the eschaton, the spiritual implications of union with this magnificent God should spring out in our understanding and just thrill the soul. The LORD Most High establishes His dominion in this place where worship and praise reside. God is the registrar of the people who will inhabit this wonderful domicile. All His springs of joy and salvation are in her as redemption gives birth to eternal existence!
Verse to Memorize: Psalm 87:2
