Enter His Gates
Isa 26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
Singing a song of the return of Jesus to Jerusalem. The strength of the city is the presence of the Lord. The structure in a spiritual metaphor, is salvation, built on the Solid Rock of faith and obedience to the Messiah: The Lord Jesus Christ.
