Shadows of New Jerusalem in Psalms 36-50

The Psalms speak about many things; looking at them from the New Testament, Christ, house, city, earth are the key words. Each is fully seen in New Jerusalem.

Psalm 36, in addition to the river and fatness, touches God’s lovingkindness and light. New Jerusalem will have a fullness of lovingkindness. Furthermore, the city will be full of light; “there will be no night there” (Rev. 21:25). In New Jerusalem God Himself in Christ as the light of life will obviate the need for any other kind of light.

This shining God is also foretold in Psalm 50:2, “Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.” New Jerusalem, the heavenly Zion on the new earth, is the perfection of beauty because it is saturated with the Christ who is perfect in every way. In response to this perfection, there is praise in New Jerusalem, as foreseen in Psalm 65:1, “Praise awaits You, O God, in Zion.”

Psalm 47:1, “Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with the voice of a triumphant sound.”
Psalm 47:6-8, “Sing psalms to God, sing psalms; sing psalms to our King, sing psalms. For God is the King of all the earth; sing psalms with understanding. God reigns over the nations; God sits upon His holy throne.” God and the Lamb will be on the throne in New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:5, 22:3) and we will sing psalms there.

Psalm 48:1-2, “Great is Jehovah, and much to be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain. Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”

New JerusalemWe should expect New Jerusalem to be full of praises and full of singing. New Jerusalem will be exceedingly joyful within and it will also be “the joy of the whole earth.”

Here is the second verse of a song about Christ, house, city, earth:
_Christ brings us to God’s house to dwell,
_Where all day long His praises swell.
_O hallelujah! None can tell
__How lovely is God’s house!
___How lovely is God’s house!
___How lovely is God’s house!
___O hallelujah! None can tell
____How lovely is God’s house!

Praise Him now and in New Jerusalem!

  2. Apocalypse 22 : 1-2
    Et il me montra un fleuve d’eau de la vie, resplendissant comme du cristal, qui sortait du trône de Dieu et de l’agneau, au milieu de sa rue 2 Au milieu de l’avenue de la ville, entre deux bras du fleuve, se trouve l’arbre de vie. Il produit douze récoltes, chaque mois il porte son fruit. Ses feuilles servent à guérir les nations.

    Apocalypse 2 : 7
    Celui qui a des oreilles, qu’il entende ce que l’Esprit dit aux Églises. A celui qui vaincra je donnerai à manger de l’arbre de vie, qui est dans le paradis de Dieu.

    L’arbre de vie est planté dans le paradis de Dieu. Puisque l’arbre de vie se trouve dans la ville, cela indique que la nouvelle Jérusalem est le paradis de Dieu.

  3. Oui. En la Version Recouvrement, la note 7 de Ap. 2:7, “Le paradis de Dieu dans ce verset est la Nouvelle Jérusalem, dont l’église est aujourd’hui un avant-goût.” Merci à Seigneur pour cette avant-goût.
