WORSHIP IN ZION

“Zion” relates to worship that ascends in harmony with the choirs of heaven, to the One who sits upon the Throne. Zion speaks of “a set apart place” in which the expression of pure adoration and love flows up to the Lord through spontaneous worship.

Spiritually, Zion resides within us as being “a habitation of His presence.” As we maintain the poise of our spirit in an attitude of worship, we enter Zion. Then, whenever we attend a meeting and blend our personal flow of worship into the flow of corporate worship, the heavens will open and release a manifestation of the presence of the Lord moving through a meeting in waves of glory.

There is an urgent need for us to understand the value of our coming into the atmosphere of Zion, to worship.

“When the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.” Psalm 102:16

Zion is a city within a city. It is located on the highest hill in the southeast area of Jerusalem. It is here that David set up his tent to provide a resting place for the Ark.

In David’s “tent,” there were no partitions. The people and priests were intermingled together on common ground. In contrast, the “temple” was structured and liturgical. It had an outer court for the people, a holy place where a priest came once each day to make a sacrifice, and the Holy of Holies, which the High Priest entered once each year.

Ephesians 2:20-22 tells us that “we” become Zion, when we separate and dedicate ourselves to be a vessel to house (the building fitly framed together) His presence (grows into a holy temple).
