Mountain Sinai v.s. Mount Zion Part 3

July 25, 2021 • Pastor Peter Kim

**Heb 12:22 (ESV)** 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, **and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,** **Heb 12:22 (NIV)** But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon **thousands of angels in joyful assembly,** **John 10:10** "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. **1. Who will be at this party? (What is the guest list)** **Col 2:18** 18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, **Rev 5:11-14** 11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and **the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,** 12 saying with a loud voice, **"Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."** 13 And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, **"To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever." 14 And the four living creatures kept saying, "Amen." And the elders fell down and worshiped.** **Matt 13:44-46** 44 "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, 46 and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it. **John 15:11** 11 "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. **Heb 11:15-16** And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 But as it is, they **desire a better country,** that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them. **John 4:21-23** 21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 "You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. **Col 1:18** 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. **Rev 7:9-10** After these things I looked, and behold, a **great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands;** 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." **Heb 12:2** 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. **2. For what cause are we celebrating?** **1 Cor 13:9-12** 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. **Col 3:3-4** 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When **Christ, who is our life, is revealed,** then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. **Luke 10:17-20** 17 The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." 18 And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. 19 "Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. 20 "Nevertheless **do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven."** **Luke 15:7** 7 "I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. **Luke 15:10** 10 "In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." **Luke 15:21-24** 21 "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' 22 "But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; 23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; 24 for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.' And they began to celebrate. **Isa 25:6-8** 6 The **Lord of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet** for all peoples on this mountain; A banquet of aged wine, choice pieces with marrow, And refined, aged wine. 7 And on this mountain He will **swallow up the covering which is over all peoples, Even the veil which is stretched over all nations.** 8 He will **swallow up death for all time,** And the Lord God will **wipe tears away from all faces,** And **He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the Lord has spoken.**

Mountain Sinai v.s. Mount Zion Part 2

July 18, 2021 • Pastor Peter Kim

**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."

Mountain Sinai v.s. Mount Zion

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;
