MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 7 December 2019
Paul the apostle was privileged to be “caught up to the third heaven” where he heard unspeakable words, which are not lawful for a man to utter. Many years later, John the Beloved was also privileged to see “the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:2). The eternal home of all redeemed souls will be in this glorious city.
Though this Psalm was written by David, it portrays the great principles on which the kingdom of Christ will be governed. Here, David expressed the desires of his heart for the government of his house, the land and the city of God.
David, being a prophet was actually foreseeing the future kingdom of Christ “wherein dwelleth righteousness”. The glorious Kingdom revealed to God’s servants both in the Old and New Testaments will be the culmination of God’s perfect plan and purpose for His loyal and obedient children.

As the people of God labour “in journeys often, … in perils in the city … in perils among false brethren in weariness and painfulness, in watchings, often, in hunger and thirst, in fasting often…”, a day will come when God will finally wipe away all tears from their eyes and their sorrow will be turned to everlasting joy.
All present sufferings are but a ‘light affliction’ which will fade into oblivion when God’s glory shall be revealed. Paul the apostle, chained in prison wrote to the church urging them to rejoice always. He rejoiced too in all his afflictions. Today, he is over there. Will you be among that great multitude that stand and sing before the throne?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Should one allow anything to hinder him from partaking in this coming glory?
DAILY BIBLE READING: Amos 1- 5
