Psalm 87:6 (NIV) ~ The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: “This one was born in Zion.” Selah.

Psalm 87:6 (NIV) ~ The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: “This one was born in Zion.” Selah. 

Where were you born? What royal line are you from? What lineage does your heritage come from? Whose ancestral tree do you descend from? This glorious answer to all those pressing questions can be found is this verse from Psalm87, “I can say of myself, ‘This one was born in Zion,’ the city of God, the city of the free; a city of power, victory and praise.” 

When a census is taken and the register is opened up for our heavenly birth certificate to be displayed for the world to see, it will say, “This one was born in Zion,” the city of the promises of God. We were born because of a promise, a promise which was ordained by God from the heavenly city of Zion. We belong to Jesus Christ, and we are sealed with His stamp of approval, birthed by the water and the blood of a new creation, a newborn babe in Christ Jesus; clean, washed and born-again of the spirit of the ever-living, incorruptible seed of the word of God. 

From Zion came all the blessings of God. Three times in Psalm 87 we read this statement to that affect, in verses 4 and 6, “This one was born in Zion,” and again in verse 5 we read, “This one and that one were born in Zion.” 

To be born in Zion is to be born free! It is to be strong and bold, so when the enemy comes against us we can say, as prophet of God says in Isaiah 10:24 (KJV), “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, ‘O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian. Be not afraid of the enemy at anytime.’” For we are from Zion and we are not afraid! God is in the midst of us, He is our defender, He is our strength, the MOST HIGH Himself will establish us for we are born in Zion. 

My friend, one day every soon the Lamb’s book of life will be opened in heaven, the heavenly register of births in Christ Jesus, those who have put their trust in the LORD. When your name is read out will it say, “This one was born in Zion?” Today, ask the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your life, so you may be born-again, born of a promise, born in Zion, the heavenly city of God, place of power, victory and praise. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
