Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
"The Lord is there." Such is the name of the church in consequence of the presence of her glorious husband. (See Ezekiel 48:35) The prophet is speaking by the Spirit of prophecy, and looking into the days of the gospel; so that here is a mark to know the church by now, and which will be the character of Christ's church for ever. Without the Lord's presence there is no church: unless he be in the midst of us, we may go lean all our days. Lord! write JEHOVAH Shammah in our churches, in our hearts, in our houses, in our families!
