Psalms 48:0

The Judgment of the Nations and the Millennium

1. Jerusalem the city of the King (Psalms 48:1-3 )

2. The confederated nations scattered (Psalms 48:4-7 )

3. The millennium (Psalms 48:8-14 )

Jerusalem is now seen as the city of the great King. His glorious throne will there be established, and Mount Zion becomes the joy of the whole earth. Psalms 48:4-7 show what preceded the coming of the King. The nations had come against Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:1-21 ), a mighty confederacy was assembled. He came and scattered them by His judgments. Then Jerusalem is established forever; His millennial reign begins.
