Adding to the light that He gave with the coming of King David, the Lord provides a wonderful picture of His Church in the city of Jerusalem. We see David conquer that city, where the Lord was pleased to place His name, and through it, show His people something of the glory and beauty of the true Church.

We consider two things: 

  • First, that the Lord chose Jerusalem as the city in which He would dwell. 
  • Second, that in doing this, He was providing His people with a picture of the true Church.

We are challenged to examine ourselves to discover whether or not we are citizens of the New Jerusalem.
