The Mountain of The Lord

The gathering of ancient physical Israel (and the "mixed multitude" that came out of Egypt in the Exodus with them i.e. Exodus 12:38 KJV) to Mount Sinai where they were given The Law of God is one of the most well-known events of Bible History. But it was in fact an objective Prophecy of the ultimate gathering of spiritual Israel, from all nations, to Mount Zion where the same Law of God will be given unto all the world.

"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion [see Zionism], and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4:3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Micah 4:1-3 KJV)

"He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the Law shall go forth of Zion"

In the third month after the Exodus, the Israelites, arrived at Mount Sinai in "the wilderness of Sinai" and "the desert of Sinai" (see Why Did Paul Say That Sinai Was In Arabia?).

Mount Sinai

"19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai [see The Wilderness of Sin]. 19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount." (Exodus 19:1-2 KJV)

Who did Moses see and talk to on Mount Sinai? Who was it that delivered The Ten Commandments to His people? "10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV; see The 'God Of The Old Testament').

"19:3 And Moses [see also The Education Of Moses, The Trysting Tent and Why Did Christ Put Moses To Death?] went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant [listen to the Sermon The Divorce and Remarriage of Jesus Christ from our Sermons page], then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel." (Exodus 19:3-6 KJV)

After Moses delivered The Lord's instructions to the people, The Lord came down upon the mountain to proclaim His Law.

The Ten Commandments

"19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount [see also Behold, He Cometh With Clouds], and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. 19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. 19:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish. 19:22 And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, Sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.

19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

19:24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them.

19:25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them." (Exodus 19:16-25 KJV)
