Shadows of New Jerusalem in Psalms 22-27

Here is another group of verses from Psalms, verses which in some way point toward Christ, house, city, earth and thereby are previews of New Jerusalem.

Psalm 22:1-21 speaks of the death of Christ; several verses are quoted in the New Testament. Through His death we have been redeemed and through His resurrection we have been regenerated; these steps together bring us into New Jerusalem.

Psalm 22:26, “Those who seek after Jehovah will praise Him—may your hearts live forever!” Let us seek Him today!
Psalm 22:27-28, “All the ends of the earth will remember and return to Jehovah…for the kingdom is Jehovah’s, and He rules among the nations.” Surely this points to all the nations surrounding New Jerusalem.

Psalm 23:1, “Jehovah is my Shepherd; I will lack nothing.” Christ is shepherding us now.

Psalm 23:6, “Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for the length of my days.” Surely goodness and lovingkindness will be in New Jerusalem and we will dwell there for eternity.

New JerusalemPsalm 24:1, “The earth is Jehovah’s, and its fullness, the habitable land and those who dwell in it.” This will be visible in the kingdom and in eternity on the new earth.
Psalm 24:10, “Who is this King of glory? Jehovah of hosts – He is the King of glory!” The King of glory fills New Jerusalem; “the glory of God illumined it [New Jerusalem]” (Rev. 21:23).

Psalm 26:8, “O Jehovah, I love the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory abides.” I love God and I love New Jerusalem as God’s house and city, where His glory abides.

Psalm 27:4, “One thing I have asked from Jehovah; that do I seek: to dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire in His temple.” In the church today and in New Jerusalem eternally we dwell in Jehovah’s house and behold His beauty.
