Moses and the Place of the King’s Name

For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you. But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:

Deuteronomy 12:9-11

That place marked by Moses prophecy where the LORD would “cause His name to dwell there” would be Mount Moriah. That was the place where, on the southern slope of the mountain, Melchizedek’s “city of peace” was located. The northern height was barren in 2000 BC and had been where God led Abraham to sacrifice Isaac (Genesis 22, 2 Chronicles 3:1). These events in the days of Melchizedek and Abraham happened a thousand years before David would choose Mount Moriah for his capital city, also known as Jerusalem, Zion, and “the city of David.” After David’s reign, Solomon would build the temple there. Mount Moriah would be the place of the crucifixion of the “King of the Jews”; and it will be the place where He will one day “sit on the throne of His father David” (Isaiah 9:6-7). This was and is the place where God set His NAME forever.
