Everlasting Joy Shall be upon their Heads | Id# shabb-030714-everlasting-joy
Joy begins here, redeemed, ransomed, and knowing that one day, as those who have been redeemed, ransomed, and delivered by our God through his Son Jesus Christ, we will walk, singing, as the ‘ransomed of the LORD, into Zion with songs, having everlasting joy upon our heads, like a crown. All sorrow and sighing shall flee away in a moment.
Pause, think, about that for a moment, Selah!
All the shame, and all the confusion of the former life will be done away with! We shall return to our God, from whence we came! We shall return to the gates of Zion, having been in this life, redeemed and ransomed from the ‘curse of the law’ and the ‘death’ associated with it. We who had the Son of God give his life for ours, as a ransom unto God, a purchased possession, now we are the LORD’S
Isaiah 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Isaiah 51:11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
