Psalms of Ascents: The Preciousness of Zion and Jerusalem

Posted on Apr 10, 2012 | 0 comments

“Those who trust in Jehovah are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved but abides forever.” (Psalm 125:1)
“For Jehovah has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here will I dwell, for I have desired it.” (Psalm 132:13-14)

The Psalms or Songs of Ascents reveal the people’s love and appreciation of God’s house on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. In the New Testament, the real Jerusalem is the church, and the real Zion is the overcoming believers in the church. These psalms portray the overcomers as people who trust in the Lord, are one with the Lord in His work to build the house of God, are humble in heart, and partake in the Lord’s blessing of Zion with the bread of life, clothing of salvation, victory over the enemies, and a crown.
