Weekly Pursuit:

 

Verses:

 

Psa. 132:15 “This is My resting place forever; here will I dwell, for I have desired it.”

 

Excerpts:

 

[In Psalm 132:15-18] Jehovah [speaks about Zion] by saying that He will abundantly bless Zion’s provision and satisfy its poor with bread, that He will clothe its priests with salvation, that its faithful ones will shout with a ringing shout, that there He will cause the horn of David to shoot forth, that He has prepared a lamp for His Anointed One, and that He will clothe with shame the enemies of His Anointed One but that on Him His crown will shine.

 

In Psalm 132 we have seven items related to the overcomer—resting, dwelling, food, clothing, the victorious horn, the enlightening lamp, and the shining crown. These items are at the top of the church life. However, when God is homeless, we also are homeless. When He does not have satisfaction, we also do not have satisfaction. But when God is resting and dwelling in Zion, we have plenty of food. Furthermore, we have the proper clothing, a horn, a lamp, and a crown. This is the situation of the overcomers in Zion, the highest peak of God’s mountain.

 

When Zion is built up and when God is resting there and dwelling in Jerusalem, then we have a place where we can gather and where we can dwell together in unity. If this is our situation in the meetings of the church, we will enjoy God’s commanded blessing. (Life-study of Psalms, msg. 42)
