Psalm 24

- Oh think of those everlasting doors! Doors that have forever been closed -- the gates of hell, the gates of incurable sickness!-- and someone has been found worthy to open them! He even commands them to be opened! Who is that? The one who is at last the perfect man! The new Adam! The one who is worthy to open the seals! He is the king of glory! The triumphant victor who has finally redeemed humans from sin, death, sickness and all that mocked us and triumphed over us. We are free. Whom the son has set free is free indeed!

if only we could see the majesty of this, what might we not believe!-C



Psalm 24

1The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
