“You Have Come To…”

“You Have Come To…”

Blessings folk!

The children of Israel had “seen” the Lord in His might and power.

They “saw” Him as…

Hebrews 12:18-19
For you have not come to a mountain that can be touched and to a blazing fire,
and to darkness and gloom and whirlwind,

and to the blast of a trumpet and the sound of words which sound was such that those who heard begged that no further word be spoken to them.

They experienced Him at The Mountain.
They saw the Fire.
They saw the Dark.
They saw the Gloom.
They saw the Whirlwind.
They heard the blast of the Trumpet.
They heard the sound of the Word.
They begged to hear no other Word…it rattled them.

Deu 18:16
“This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God,
let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.’

Heb 12:20-21
For they could not bear the command,

And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said,
“I AM FULL OF FEAR and trembling.”

But, this is not who we are as true Believers.
For today, rejoice in what we learn here…

Heb 12:22-24
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels,

to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven,
and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,

and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant,
and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.

Not Mt. Sinai.
Mount Zion!

Not a city of man.
The City of God!

Not Jerusalem.
The Heavenly Jerusalem!

Not among rebellious angels…demons.
Among myriads of angels.

This is just the beginning.
Oh what awaits us…!!

Fear not in this life.
Rejoice in that which is yet to come!
