“WHO?” (Ps 24)

Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? vs3

Here is the question. “Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?” How can we, poor sinners, come up to God? How can we live acceptably in His sight?

There is One Man, Jesus Christ the Lord, who has obeyed God, and in Him we are accepted. Apart from Him, we cannot make it. We are unclean and impure. We are sinners from our father Adam, cast OUT of the Garden and removed from His presence. In Christ, however, all is forgiven because that Perfect Man obeyed God [Rom 5:17].

Do not look to yourself but look to Him whom God’s exalted. He’s proven the Son is perfect, taking Him up into heaven. He is as the Father’s right hand, and He’s a Mediator for poor sinners. He prevailed, and by Him, we are worthy.

Secondly, this is a chosen generation and royal priesthood. He says, “Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.” He’s not talking about one man but many. Not only is He talking about Christ but me and you who believe, because righteousness has been imputed. It is imperative to know that all He has done is for us, so we can be accepted fully. Paul said, “And be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through the faith of Christ--the righteousness from God based on faith (Phil 3:9).”

Do not merely see a Perfect Savior, but see a perfect salvation that gives YOU access with boldness. You have been redeemed. You have received the reconciliation. You are a son of God, and you are free from the law and all obligation to make yourself acceptable. It is accomplished, once and for all times through the finished work of Christ. Be bold, therefore, beloved, and do not act as if you have no God, as if He will not hear you, as if all Christ has done is in vain! We must be practical! We must use access (Eph 3:12). We must draw near to God to get help and strength in our need (Heb 10:19-22).

Do not fear as one who has no hope. Come boldly to Him and get what you need.

Finally, the Lord Jesus Christ is the King of glory who comes in. He says,

7Lift up your heads, O gates!

Be lifted up, O ancient doors,

that the King of Glory may enter!

8Who is this King of Glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O gates!

Be lifted up, O ancient doors,

that the King of Glory may enter!

10Who is He, this King of Glory?

The LORD of Hosts—

He is the King of Glory.

Do not fear beloved! See how mightily the Son of God enters in! He does not whimper and beg, but He boldly takes the book (Rev 5:7). He is not ushered in at night... let down through a window... but He enters heaven’s front door as worthy. Worthy is the Lamb! Let salvation be ours. Worthy is the Lamb! Give us the Spirit. Worthy is the Lamb! The gates of hell shall not prevail against Him.

We go with absolute confidence. We are not playing games, whimpering about as unworthy sinners, but in the Lord Jesus Christ we are bold like a lion, accepted, and mighty in battle. We can do great things, even delivering God’s elect from bondage. We can live holy.

I saw an online debate where a sister patiently mocked and rebuked the hyper calvinist. These men want imputed righteousness and nothing else! They think themselves spiritual, but they are unspiritual and unskillful in the word of righteousness. They have entered the first step, at best, but there is MORE to be had in Christ, and she confounded them by abiding in Christ for the Spirit. She said, “There’s more, brothers”, and indeed there is! There is more and sufficient power, even all that we need.

Do not say, “I can’t rejoice.” Do not murmur, as if you have no hope. Look at yourself no longer. Look at the situation to bring it unto Him, and be bold and confident. Christ has prevailed and the promises are real. Christ has won, and we are victors.
