**Rom 3:10-12, 18** 10 as it is written, "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE; 11 THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS, THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; 12 ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE." **18 "THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES."** **Heb 10:31** 31 It is a **terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.** **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." **Rev 14:1-3** Then I looked, and behold, **the Lamb** was standing on **Mount Zion**, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the **sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps.** 3 And they **sang a new song** before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; **1. Zion is the permanent dwelling of God where Sinai was where God visited.** **a. Heb 12:22** But you have come to Mount Zion and to the **city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem,** **b. Ps 132:13-14** 13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. 14 "**This is My resting place forever;** Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. **Rom 7:13;** 13 Therefore did that which is good become a cause of death for me? May it never be! Rather it was sin, **in order that it might be shown to be sin by effecting my death through that which is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful.** **Rom 7:24** **24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?** **Rom 8:2-3** For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and **as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,** **Gen 4:9-10** 9 Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is Abel your brother?" And he said, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?" 10 He said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to Me from the ground. **Rev 5:1-9** I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?" 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it. 4 Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; 5 and one of the elders said to me, **"Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals."** 6 And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a **Lamb standing, as if slain,** having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. 7 And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 8 When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. **9 And they sang a new song,** **1 Peter 2:6** For this is contained in Scripture: "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED."
