( 24th November 2013, Sunday Morning Message from Psalm 24:1-10 by Rev. C. Peter Chandran )

Praise the LORD. Grace to you and peace be multiplied to you. Today’s GOD’s message is from Psalm 24:1-10. We shall study this Psalm into three components:

  1. God’s right to the earth, vs.1-2
  2. Character of God’s people,vs.3-6
  3. Earth’s future ruler revealed,vs.7-10


“ The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods” ( Psalm 24:1-2 ).

God created the earth. It legally belongs to Him. Earth means the planet earth on which we live, life on the planet earth. The earth with all its countries and people are the world. The Word of God says that the earth was founded and established by the LORD. The Bible speaks about the foundation of the earth in Job 38:4-7 and Psalm 102:25.

God laid the foundation of the earth. It was the work of a person and not the development of an evolving, self-existed, molecule or any number of molecules. Job was asked to tell how the earth was formed under God’s hand, if he had understanding. If he could not do this, he was a poor critic of God’s government.

Foundations transmit the structural load into the ground safely. For convenience, foundations are divided into two broad categories: Shallow foundations and Deep foundations. Jesus speaks about the house built with deep foundation upon the Rock.

The LORD founded the earth and established it. To stabilize means to become or to make firm, steady and unlikely to change. e.g. the patient’s condition has stabilized. Stabilizer is a device that keeps steady, especially one that stops an aircraft or a ship from rolling on to one side. Another, example is when lime is mixed with soil, about 5% to 10%, the strength of the soil is improved. The Bible says:

“ For the LORD hath founded the earth upon the seas, and Established it upon the floods”.

The Apostle Peter through God’s wisdom speaks about three periods of the heavens and the earth in 2 Peter 3: 5-7 :

  1. The world that then was ( Gen.1:1-2 )
  2. The heavens and the earth which are now ( Gen. 1:3-2:25 )
  3. The new heavens and the new earth ( Isa. 65:17, 66: 23-24; 2 Peter 3: 13; Rev. 21-22 )


Psalm 24: 3-6 says: “ Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of His salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob”.

The following are 4 qualifications to eternal blessing:

  1. He that has a clean hand
  2. He that has a pure heart
  3. He that has not lifted his soul to vanity of idols and sin
  4. He that is truthful.

The hill of the LORD represents the place of worship, wherein the N.T. one can worship the LORD in the spirit and in truth in any place. And the holy place represents the people of God or the heart of people or the the temple of God where God dwells which is our human body with soul and spirit. To abide in God’s house and church, we should have these character traits.

From this character development, we get the blessing from the LORD, for example, the man Job, and righteousness from the God of his salvation, for example the man named Abraham. The man Job was perfect and upright, and one that feared God and eschewed evil. The Bible says:

“ So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters” ( Job 42:12,13 ).

Job lived a good, prosperous and long life. This is the man who received blessing from the Lord. The man Abraham believed God, when he was childless. God gave him a son according to His promise in due time. God counted him a righteous person. He received righteousness from God. Abraham was justified by his faith in God Almighty.

In the O.T. there was another person who sincerely sought God’s presence. The man was Jacob who was later on called Israel ( = Prince with God). He prayed though out a night seeking God’s face and His blessing. God blessed him in Peniel which means face of God. Psalmist says: we are the Jacob generation, who seek, enquire and seek the face of the LORD. And we are blessed.


In Psalm 24:7- 10, the Bible says:

“ Lift up your hands, O ye gates; and be ye lift 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”.

The name “The King of glory” for our LORD Jesus Christ is mentioned five times in these four verses. Here we have the identification of the eternal ruler on the eternal earth. The future eternal door or entrances to the eternal temple.

For the King of glory to come inside His dwelling place, we should lift up our heads of the gates. Here I would like to explain about gates and doors.

Gate: the part of a fence, wall, etc. like a door that can be opened to let people or vehicles through; please keep the garden gate closed. Another meaning: the place at an Airport where you get on or off a plane; Swiss air Flight 139 to Geneva is now boarding at gate 16.

Similarly, in the human body we have five senses as Gates. Eye gate, Ear gate, Nose gate, Mouth gate and Feel gate. These gates must be opened as an act of faith to the LORD and His word.

DOORS: a place of wood, glass, etc., that you can open and close to get in or get out of a room, building, car, etc., e.g. the front/ back door.

We must open the doors of our heart ( spirit) and mind opened to the LORD Jesus Christ. He says in Revelation 3:20 :

“ Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”.

Here, the King of glory is requesting the Laodicea church , so that He can come into the church and have fellowship with them. He was knocking at the minds, hearts and life of those believers in Laodicea church. In the same way , Jesus Christ, the King of glory is knocking at your doors everlasting ( minds, heart and life). The scripture says Lift up your hands, Lift up your eyes, Lift up your heads, Lift up your voices and all these be opened. Ephatha = be opened, forever. And when the King of glory – the LORD Jesus Christ comes into your life, you shall become a glorious person, your church will become a glorious church. The Bible says: Christ in you, the hope of glory.

“ To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”( Colossians 1:27 ).

The King of glory shall come in. Invite Him, our LORD Jesus Christ, saying, please come in. Your life shall be wonderfully changed. Who is this King of Glory?

  1. The LORD strong and mighty
  2. The LORD mighty in battle
  3. The LORD of hosts

He is the King of glory. He is coming very soon. Are you prepared to meet thy God. And God bless you. Amen.
