"But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men... See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks." ~ Heb. 12:22-25
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.” ~ Matt. 23:37
"Jerusalem" is a song for the church, the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God, God's people, his bride, his saints. So much of today’s church is living in spiritual adultery against her Lord. She is filled with idolatry and is consumed with the ways of this world. The church has become so worldly, for the most part, that she does not stand out as the light of the world and as the salt of the earth. So, this is a call for revival of the church and for renewed faith and obedience to Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Jerusalem / An Original Work / May 2, 2011
…you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God… Heb. 12:22
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, hear now your King of kings.
He speaks to you, Jerusalem, in all His majesty.
Oh, listen now, Jerusalem, He’s calling out to you.
Hear Him call you, Jerusalem; He’s waiting now for you.
Won’t you bow down, Jerusalem? Let Christ make you anew!
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, hear God’s call to obey
Your Lord and Savior, Christ the King; trust Him without delay.
Turn from your sin, Jerusalem; let Christ rule in your hearts.
Invite Him now, Jerusalem, to save you; grace impart,
And purify, Jerusalem, your hearts of all your sin!
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, hear your God’s final plea
To come to Him, Jerusalem, right now on bended knee.
Make Him your Lord, Jerusalem; He’s your Messiah, King.
Honor Him as the Holy One, your off’rings to Him bring.
And serve Him now, Jerusalem, for He is Christ your King!
