Lift up your heads, O ye gates: and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in.

Who is this King of Glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.

PSALTER 58

Ye gates, lift your heads, the glad summons obey,
Ye doors everlasting, wide open the way;
The King of all glory high honors await,
The King of all glory shall enter in state.

What King of all glory is this that ye sing?
The Lord, strong and mighty, the conquering King.
Ye gates, lift your heads, and His summons obey,
Ye doors everlasting, wide open the way.

The King of all glory high honors await,
The King of all glory shall enter in state.
What King of all glory is this that ye sing?
Jehovah of Hosts, He of glory is King.


    How does Psalter 58 (Psalm 24) describe Christ's triumphal ascension into heaven? Has the theme of this song ever touched your heartstrings?


Christ's ascension is of great importance for the following five reasons. It is of great importance to:

1. God the Father - Christ's ascension marks the receiving home of His only begotten Son who is His daily delight. It proclaims the glory God's justice required - the perfect, eternal glory the Father promised for obedience. It testifies of God's full satisfaction with His Son's payment for His Church.

2. God the Son - Jesus' ascension proclaims His triumphal return after conquering God's and His Church's enemies. His resurrected human nature shines with the full glory He earned through His humiliation.

3. God the Holy Spirit - Christ's ascension secured the rich outpouring of the Holy Spirit as Jesus testified to His disciples, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you" (John 16:7).
