Psalm 122

From Jerusalem Past to Jerusalem Future; What was, what is, and what will be. The first tourist map published in the 1930s in British-Mandate era Jerusalem. The nation of Israel was “born” on May 15,1948.

  • “Not many maps are capable of visually resurrecting a city. The task is even more challenging when that city is Jerusalem, and not only that but Jerusalem as it appeared eighty-eight years ago. Rare are the maps that show us not only a schematic of a street grid, but also depict buildings, cultural and recreational institutions, as well as government structures, in a detailed and aesthetic fashion. Maps that place a picture of life in Jerusalem as it once was before our eyes. Such are the hand drawn Jerusalem maps of Spyro Spiridon.”

What should I learn from this chapter?

  • A peek into the Millennium
  • Build your house on the rock of God
  • It is a house of Royalty
  • It is the “house of Wind-Soar”

The Joy of Going to the House of the Lord

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

Psalm 122:1 I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go into the house of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ).”
  • The house of the Lord is also the family of the Lord. It is a house of royalty like “the house of Windsor”
Psalm 122:Our feet have been standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem!
Psalm 122:Jerusalem is built
As a city that is compact together,
Psalm 122:Where the tribes go up,
The tribes of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ),
To the Testimony of Israel (Or: As a testimony to),
To give thanks to the name of the Lord ().
Psalm 122:For thrones are set there for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
  • Judgments during the millennium
  • Perhaps a court for the Antichrist, the False Prophet, and those involved in the crimes of the Antichrist; just like the Nuremberg trials except more extensive and with more justice.
Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
Psalm 122:Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”
Psalm 122:For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
Psalm 122:Because of the house of the Lord our God (Yᵊhōvâ ‘ĕlōhîm)
I will seek your good.
  • The Jerusalem of the Future: The New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven.

The Holy City

Last night I lay a-sleeping
There came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem
Beside the temple there.
I heard the children singing,
And ever as they sang
Methought the voice of angels
From heaven in answer rang,
Methought the voice of angels
From heaven in answer rang.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And then methought my dream was changed,
The streets no longer rang.
Hushed were the glad Hosannas
The little children sang.
The sun grew dark with mystery,
The morn was cold and chill,
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill,
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Hark! How the angels sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And once again the scene was changed,
New earth there seemed to be.
I saw the Holy City
Beside the tideless sea.
The light of God was on its streets,
The gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter,
And no one was denied.
No need of moon or stars by night,
Or sun to shine by day;
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away,
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Sing for the night is o’er!
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna forevermore!
