MOUNT ZION Hebrews 12:18-24

 

The human mind can never comprehend God, we are only limited to our experiences and those of others. The experience the Israelites had of God was fearful, to the point they declined further encounter but asked Moses to represent them, even Moses confirmed it, V 21 “And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake”.

According to our text, the mountain of God is beyond the fearful presence of God V 22-24 “But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 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, and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel”.

What we stand to gain from the heavenly Mount Zion can never be imagined, there is such release of power to meet all needs, Obadiah 1:17 “But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions”. In addition, the blood of Jesus has broken the barrier between man and God and we can thus access His presence for ourselves, Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.

 

Prayer point: By the blood of Jesus, I enter into the Holy of holies and i receive mercy now in Jesus name.
