    Why did God set boundaries for the people in Exodus 19:11-12. Only Aaron & Moses were permitted to be on it. We're they not worthy?

    well, the bible talks a lot about The New Jerlusomen and the kingdom of God being a mount called mount zion.

    [ Psa 48:2 KJV] 2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, [is] mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

    from what I understand that is picturing that no one is going to heaven unless they have been cleansed and are holly.

    [ Rev 21:27 KJV] 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither [whatsoever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

    Dear all, such nice words! If we continue in the good hope we have received, salvation, we will not may only be seen in this life. But guaranteed in the future. Greet you with Galatians chapter 1 and 2, especially in v.20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Ty for good reading

    Hi Kathy,

    I would like to add to the truth Cait has given referencing Hebrews 12:18-23. For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

    And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

    (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

    And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)


    To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

    Notice the contrast. In Exodus 19:10-12. THE LORD TELL MOSES TO SANCTIFY THE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO WASH THERE CLOTHES, and bring them the third day, and they still couldn't touch the border of the law given mountain!!

    In the Heavenly Jerusalem God don't wash garments, he gives new ones.

    Zechariah 2:10-13.

    Zechariah 3:1-9.

    Ephesians 4:20-24.

    Colossians 3:9-10.


    Galatians 4:21-26. Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?

    For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

    But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

    WHICH THINGS ARE AN ALLEGORY: FOR THESE ARE THE TWO COVENANTS; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

    For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.


    Romans 8:3-4.

    A general area to study in.

    Hopefully someone will add.

    God bless.

    Thanks Brother Rick.

    Isn't marvelous that same law giver "God" is "ON" both mountains, The law "applies" on both mountains, But the way to God is only available by one mountain!! MONT SION. If you clean your self and try to approach God by the law you will die.

    also, how wonderful here how God, great and holy as He is, seeks relationship. He has a plan and a way to bring life and blessing to His people.
  • Cait - in Reply on Exodus 19
    if I understand correctly, Moses alone was permitted to approach God. This is about the great Majesty and holiness of God, how we, before Christ, stand naked before a holy righteous judge. Now under the gospel what a privilege we enjoy to have "boldness to enter the holiest by the blood of Jesus". Hallelujah!
