Psalm 24:7 (NIV) ~ Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors that the King of glory may come in.

Psalm 24:7 (NIV) ~ Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors that the King of glory may come in. 

Tucked away within these few Scriptures from Psalm 24:7 to 10 (NIV), “The Lord the King of glory” is mentioned five times. Furthermore, verse seven is repeated verbatim in verse nine. 

  1. Lift up your heads.
  2. O your gates be lifted up, you ancient doors.
  3. That the King of glory may come in.  

For He is strong to deliver and mighty to save! 

  1. Lift up your heads.

Your Salvation, Your Saviour, is a heavenly gift from above. Take your eyes off what is below and lift high your gaze heavenward. Look to Him all the ends of the earth and be saved. 

  1. Gates and ancient doors.

Open wide the door to your heart. Open wide the ancient doors to your inner-most being and there, let Jesus Christ be enthroned Lord of all. Enter into and through Jesus Christ who is the Gate, the Ancient of days. Come to Jesus, come to Him and find a fresh start, with fresh pasture. 

  1. That the King of glory may come in.

The King of glory will only ever enter into a willing heart. He will only enter through a gate if we open the doors of our heart, the gateway to our spirit and soul, unto Him, and bid Him enter in. 

Oh, how the song writer D.W. Whittle pens such a beautiful invitation from the chorus of the song, “Have You Any Room for Jesus, He Who Bore Your Load of Sin?”

Room for Jesus, King of Glory?

Hasten now, His word obey,

Swing the heart’s door widely open,

Bid Him enter while you may.

Who is this King of glory?

Who pursues me with His love?

Who pours His love over me?

Who whispers in gentleness?

Who gifts me with His grace?

Who gives me His forgiveness?

Who surrounds me with His mercy? 

The Bible says in Psalm 24:10 (NIV), “Who is the King of glory? The Lord Almighty – he is the King of glory.” King of my heart, King of glory. 

My friend, let the King of glory enter in today. Open wide the gates of your heart, the inner ancients doors of your spirit and soul. Lift up your eyes heavenward, look to Jesus and be saved as out text for today says in Psalm 24:7 (NIV), Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors that the King of glory may come in.” Let Jesus be the King of your heart, the King of glory.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.

  1. Hi matthew – good blog!

    Just sense God is saying let the nations ancient gates/doors be opened and let the King of Glory in.

    He can change a nation if we let him in – I was listening to this song and I believe it applies to UK too.
