The LORD's Sermon From Mount Sinai

"The whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the Glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud ... And the LORD came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the Mount"

The English-language word "sermon" originated from a Latin word, sermonis, which meant to join together. The English-language word "series" originated from the same ancient word.

As such, a "sermon" is literally defined as "A discourse delivered in public, especially by a clergyman or preacher, for the purpose of religious instruction or the inculcation ["Teaching or impressing upon the mind by frequent instruction or repetition"] of morality, and grounded upon some text or passage of Scripture" (The Consolidated Webster Encyclopedic Dictionary).

The greatest Sermon ever delivered, from which all genuine Christian sermons should be based and faithful to, was the LORD's Sermon from Mount Sinai. It was delivered "live" to the Israelites, but to all of humanity because the Ten Commandments are the basis of the coming Judgment of every human that will ever exist (see the Fact Finder question below).

Mount Sinai

The day began with the LORD's instructions to Moses about how and where the congregation in the wilderness ("16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud" Exodus 16:10 KJV) were to assemble themselves. Those who chose to be rebels and hecklers would not survive the day.

"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 19:20-25 KJV)

The LORD (see A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The LORD God Of Creation) then delivered the first "Sermon on the Mount":

"20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

20:15 Thou shalt not steal.

20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's." (Exodus 20:2-17 KJV)

Fact Finder: Rebels declare that "God's Law is done away" and now everyone is "free" to do whatever they please in the LORD's Name. What fate do such self-righteous renegades have awaiting them if they don't repent?
