PSALM 48

What a time to read about the Holy City of God!  Tonight Israel is calling up 70,000 troops for her conflict with Palestine ... Bombs have hit close to Jerusalem... the world is tense waiting to see what will happen!  How do we interpret this Psalm?
"Great is the Lord... in the city of our God, his holy mountain. It is beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth."
 
Pope John Paul said when he visited Jerusalem, "this city belongs, not to any one nation, but to God."

 
The New Testament tells us that God has a new dwelling place... "and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." God's dwelling place is within every follower of Jesus Christ. Mount Zion has become the church of Jesus Christ.
 
May God's peace be upon Israel and Palestine.
