“Even as there is a natural place called Zion, so is there a spiritual Zion experience. There you shall know My covenant is always with you and shall never be broken. For there you shall find liberty and My tangible presence. Know that Zion is calling you this day, says the Lord.”
They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten (Jeremiah 50:5).
Jeremiah 50:5 speaks of a company of people from Israel and Judah who were hungry to find Zion. They knew Zion to be the place where they would encounter the Lord. Zion became a synonymous term with Jerusalem, the place of God’s throne. While this passage represents a natural experience, the Bible also points to a spiritual Zion under the New Covenant. The people of spiritual Zion are a group of believers hungry to know their God, who has given them an everlasting covenant of promise. They want a spiritual experience with the Lord that gives them the confidence to rely on that covenant in every part of their life. These people look for churches that emulate Zion where there is a charged spiritual atmosphere and the preaching of God’s Word is rich and alive. Those hungry for Zion look for a worship experience that is full of God’s high praise and is joyful and free. It’s a place where you know God intimately and He knows you and His tangible presence is there.
Ask the Lord to show you the way to continually experience Zion and let the call to Zion-Christianity fill your heart today.
Lord, I ask that You would continually show me the way to find Zion in my walk with You. I am hungry to be in the tangible place of Your presence before Your throne. I worship You, Lord, King of Zion! Amen.
