“Who shall ascend to the hill of the Lord?
Or who shall stand in His holy place?”
Two searching questions. Who will be able to climb the hill of the holiness of God? This is a pure ascent of the hill where God dwells. It is the hill of the city of God and all His redeemed people. Only the righteous can climb those slopes.
When the climber reaches the top of that hill, they must be worthy to stand in that holy place. No unclean thing will be there, and no sinner will be able to show the face of human failure in that glorious city.
“The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.”
Now we have the answer. It is the person who has a pure heart and therefore clean deeds, words and thoughts. This pure person will not put their trust in idols of any kind. This person puts all their trust in the living God, who keeps them secure.
If we desire this ability, we will look to Jesus who can begin that new work in our lives and bring us daily to a standing position in His holy hill of Jerusalem. Ever after we drill climb those sparkling slopes and enter in to our destiny, our inheritance and eternal joyful activity..
