A Vision for the Future
So many of the old hymns talk of Zion. Were they talking about Israel or the church? These old hymn writers were speaking primarily of the church. Such old hymn titles as "Zion's King shall Reign Victorious" or "Hail to the Brighteness of Zion's Glad Morning" all talk about the church. The church is the spiritual Mount Zion. This was what the old hymn writers so clearly saw. they had a high view of the church. The earthly Jerusalem has it foundation on earth, but the heavenly Jerusallem is from heaven, and that's the Jerusalem that we should be seeking.
