Our reading of the Scripture today is taken from Hebrews where it says:

“But you have COME to MOUNT ZION and to the city of the Living God, the heavenly JERUSALEM, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and CHURCH of the FIRSTBORN who are REGISTERED in Heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of JUST MEN made PERFECT, to JESUS the Mediator of the New Covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel” (Hebrews 12:22-24).

We must know that Mountain Sinai where Moses received the LAW of God is a Mountain of judgment, condemnation, and death. It was a Mountain that burn with fire, darkness, and tempest (Hebrews 12:18). This Mountain brought FEAR to the Israelites to the extent that those who heard the voice of God the Judge, begged that they don’t want to hear His voice anymore lest they die (Exodus 20:19).

In fact the author of Hebrews (Paul) tells us clearly that, “And so TERRIFYING was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly AFRAID and trembling” (Hebrews 12:20). Even Moses was afraid of God’s judgment under the Old Covenant. But unfortunately, many Christians are still worshiping under “Mount Sinai” where the FALSE Christian leaders have told them that they can enter the Kingdom of God by their good deeds of the LAW.

Those who worship God under the Old Covenant of Mount Sinai are “AFRAID” of God’s judgment because their belief system does not allow them to be sanctified from their SINS once and for all through the WATER and the BLOOD of CHRIST. They are “AFRAID and trembling” because they have not passed from death to life (John 5:24).

However our Scripture reading tells us clearly that the TRUE Christians who are truly born again of the water and the Spirit of JESUS are already on Mount Zion. It says, “But you have COME to MOUNT ZION and to the city of the Living God, the heavenly JERUSALEM, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and CHURCH of the FIRSTBORN who are REGISTERED in Heaven.”

These are words of BLESSING to the Saints of God. Praise be to God! My beloved Brothers and Sisters, God has given us spiritual eyesight through FAITH in order to see beyond the natural phenomenon. The “MOUNT ZION” where we have “COME” is not like “Mount Sinai.” It is a Mountain of Grace, of reconciliation, of righteousness, and of justification of Life in JESUS CHRIST.

When our Scripture reading says that “MOUNT ZION” is the “heavenly JERUSALEM” we must understand what it means. When Apostle John was on the Island of Patmos for the Word of God and for the testimony of JESUS CHRIST, he said, “Now I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the Holy City, NEW JERUSALEM, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:1-2).

This is where we are told that we “have COME.” In other words, we are ALREADY there. What a BLESSING! That’s why we are no more SINNERS, but we are the RIGHTEOUS children of the Most High God. How can somebody come to “MOUNT ZION and to the city of the Living God, the heavenly JERUSALEM, to an innumerable company of angels” and still thinks that he is a SINNER begging for the forgiveness of SINS every day.

Nobody can beg for the forgiveness of SINS on “MOUNT ZION” which is “the city of the Living God.” Those who do that are rather on “Mount Sinai” where Moses received the LAW which tells them the do’s and the don’ts. It is a place where people pray for the Prayers of Repentance everyday because they couldn't do what the LAW dictates.

Christians must move away from “Mount Sinai” and come to “MOUNT ZION” where there is a pure river of the water of Life which is “clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb” (Revelation 22:1). Unless Christians move to this place of HOLINESS, they will continue to be under the LAW, wallowing in the mire of SIN, speaking a gibberish language of the so called “tongues” without understand what they say or a affirm (1 Timothy 1:7).

Many Christians leaders are so blind that they have led their congregation to “Mount Sinai” only to face the fearful judgment of God. That’s why JESUS said, “Let them alone. They are BLIND LEADERS of the BLIND. And if the BLIND leads the BLIND, both will fall into a ditch” (Matthew 15:14). It is therefore catastrophic that many Christians leaders and the congregation have fallen “into a ditch” called “hell.”

Christians SINNERS must know that they cannot “COME to MOUNT ZION” by themselves, either by their deeds or devotion. It is JESUS CHRIST who brings the true believers to “MOUNT ZION” because they believed that He accepted all their SINS upon Himself and He fulfilled all RIGHTEOUSNESS for them when He got baptized by John. He then shed His precious BLOOD to pay for their SINS and RESURRECTED.

Therefore if you are a Christian who really thinks about your soul, then you must abstain from any gospel doctrine which leads you to “Mount Sinai” because it is very dangerous and deadly. You must also not follow Pastors who cannot help you to become RIGHTEOUS through JESUS CHRIST, but who are only interested in your offerings and money.

It is time for all Christians to repent and return to the TRUE GOSPEL of salvation. If they do that, then they will come to “MOUNT ZION” where the “innumerable company of angels” shout with a loud voice, “Worthy is the LAMB who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12).

Our study continues.....

Those who have COME to “MOUNT ZION” are truly BLESSED!
