Wesley's Notes for Psalms 24:7


24:7 Lift up - He speaks here of the gates and doors of the temple, which by faith and the spirit of prophecy, he beheld as already built, whose doors he calls Everlasting, not so much because they were made of strong and durable materials, as in opposition to those of the tabernacle, which were removed from place to place. These gates he bids lift up their heads, or tops, by allusion to those gates which have a portcullis, which may be let down or taken up. And as the temple was a type of Christ, and of his church, and of heaven itself; so this place may also contain a representation, either of Christ's entrance into his church, or into the hearts of his faithful people, who are here commanded to set open their hearts and souls for his reception: or of his ascension into heaven, where the saints or angels are poetically introduced as preparing the way, and opening the heavenly gates to receive their Lord and king, returning to his royal habitation with triumph and glory. The king - The Messiah, the king of Israel, and of his church, called the King, or Lord of glory, #1Cor 2:8 James 2:1|, both for that glory which is inherent in him, and that which is purchased by him for his members.

    ONLY Lord Jesus fits the description of v.4. Jeremiah23:6THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."The blessing" is singular unto him who "knew no sin".Our blessing is to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior.2Cor.2:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

    In Psalm 24, we are reminded of the attributes that can make us see God- "Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully."
  • Hamadzashe Mudavose
    It is a powerful chapter that demonstrate God's dominion in everything He created including the earth. He is God and there is no other. He is God and there is none like HIM and He has also given me dominion over all at the day of my creation in Genesis 1 in Jesus Mighty Name!!!
