Ascending the Mountain of God

"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, to the church of the first born, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new convenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel." Heb. 12: 22-24.

We are going to ascend the mountain of the Lord Monday, assembling with "so great a cloud of witnesses,": thousand upon thousands of angels, all that have gone on before us who are in heaven, God Himself, and Jesus and the sprinkled blood which speaks of mercy, love , forgiveness, joy, hope, peace, which purifies us. Wow!!! Reflect on that and "see" it. See with your spiritual eyes the eyes of those on that mount who will be present and watching us come forward to God Himself and present our question, having faith and trust that what He says is the truth.

I can hear that song in my spirit-"Come let's go up to the mountain, come let's go up to the Lord, Come let's go up to the mountain, He will teach us His ways." Yes, that is what we are seeking-His Ways and not our own ways, and not the ways of man or the world.

If it is His will to reveal to us, we will be given a treasure. And, if He does, we will then be called on for a response. In the following Scripture in Hebrews it says:"See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks." This was in reference to seeking the sabbath rest that still remains for God's people, and it is suggestive that if we don't heed when God speaks, then we will not enter into that rest.

So, we come expectedly, and we come with great reverence if He chooses to reveal something to us, which could require a response in our individual lives. When God speaks there will be an effect!!!

Prepare yourselves this weekend to come humbly, but confidently to the place in the spirit where this great company resides and is looking on, but also knowing that God has enabled us to respond to what He might say. It is there only that we will find rest.

Another thought about commenting: Feel free to share what things get stirred up in you when coming to God with the question,even if it's not a particular answer.
