July 11, 2021 • Pastor Peter Kim

**Mount Sinai** **Heb 12:18-21** For you have not come to a mountain that can be touched and to a **blazing fire, and to darkness** and gloom and whirlwind, 19 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.** 20 For they could not bear the command, "IF EVEN A BEAST TOUCHES THE MOUNTAIN, IT WILL BE STONED." 21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, "I AM FULL OF FEAR and trembling." **Ex 19:16-18** 16 So it came about on the third day, when it was morning, that there were **thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain** and a very **loud trumpet sound**, so that all the people who were in the camp **trembled**. 17 And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Now Mount Sinai was **all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire**; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole **mountain quaked violently**. **Ex 19:12-13** **"You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, 'Beware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.** **13 'No hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned or shot through; whether beast or man, he shall not live.** **Ex 19:19-22** When the **sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder**, Moses spoke and God answered him with thunder. 20 The **Lord came down on Mount Sinai**, to the top of the mountain; and the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up. 21 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, **"Go down, warn the people, so that they do not break through to the Lord to gaze, and many of them perish.** 22 "Also let the priests who come near to the **Lord consecrate themselves, or else the Lord will break out against them."** **Ex 20:18-19** 18 All the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, **they trembled and stood at a distance.** 19 Then they said to Moses, **"Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die."** **Deut 5:24-27** 24 "You said, 'Behold, the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we have seen today that God speaks with man, **yet he lives.** 25 'Now then why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; **if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer, then we will die. 26 'For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?** 27 'Go near and hear all that the Lord our God says; then speak to us all that the Lord our God speaks to you, and we will hear and do it.' **Matthew 10:28** 28 "Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. **1 Peter 3:18** 18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
