THIS is the generation?…
Friends, may it even be as David wrote…for THIS generation….
‘This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.’
‘Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.’
Open your hearts and minds and the King of glory SHALL come in.
Oh friend, are your eyes and heart lifted up unto God? Is your heart open, waiting, desiring, longing for the King of glory to come in? If it is then this is the work of the Holy Spirit in you, for we have no such desire in ourselves.
‘Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.’
‘Who is this King of glory?….’
Who is this glorious, honorable abundant one?
David tells us He is ‘The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.’
It is the One who is mightier and stronger than your poor sinful heart.
It is the One who is far stronger than Satan, the enemy of your soul.
It is the One who is stronger than the pull of the world on your soul if you will but open the door and trust Him.
It is the one who has already won the victory over sin, death and hell upon the cross and who even now….
‘is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.’
When Jesus rose again from the grave He opened the gates of heaven to every seeking soul and they can never be shut against His dear people, the everlasting doors to heaven have been opened and the way made….
‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock.’
Do you earnestly desire and long with all your heart for The King of glory to come in?
Do you long to know Him as your Saviour?
Then if you have never yet opened the door of your heart, will you not let Him in? O, by God’s grace may the door of each of our hearts be opened unto Him…
‘Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory SHALL come in.’
THEN dear Heart, you will be able to say with Solomon,….
‘I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love…His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. THIS is my beloved, and THIS is my friend.’
May God TRULY be OUR King for each of us, ruling with His perfect love over every single part of our lives.
