Who Is Zion?

Hi R____,

‘Zion’ in scripture is where God dwells. In that sense, it is the same as God’s temple, His people.

1Co 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Rev 14:1  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

The ‘temple’ of 1Co 3:16-17 is the same as ‘mount Sion’ in Rev 14:1.
Here is who is Zion, or Sion:

Heb 12:22  But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
Heb 12:23  To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

I hope that helps you to see who is Zion.
Your brother in Christ,
