Every man has witnessed Mount Sinai. It stands tall enough for everyman to see. It is a Holy place. The peak of which burns intensly with Holy Fire. Many are drawn to it because of its blazing glory. Do not desire to climb it!
God has called one man to stand near its peak. He delivered to that man the things he desired to give. If you climb it you will die. For the LAW of God makes no room for even a shadow of wickedness.
Read what Moses has brought back. Consider yourself carefully; can you do the entire law? Have you done what is perfect from birth? Can you assail Mount Sinai without failing? If not you will die. Everyone who lives by the law will also die by the law. And no one of blood alone will fulfill the entire Law.
We are of wayward desire. But the desire at the top of Mount Sinai is perfect, unblemished, without fault, eternal and Holy. Those who attempt to climb will be destroyed along the way. You will be chared to fine ashes before you arrive at the Holy Fire. And the torrent of Holy Wind will blow you away.
There is One who has assailed the height. There will not be another. He is the Holy Son of God. He was with God from the beginning and has known his Father’s ways forever. Though he is a son of man, he was not so by the will of man. He alone has performed the law of God perfectly. And now he sits enthroned at the right hand of God forever.
Without him we are but animals. With him we become immeasurably more. And we remember that it is written, “If even an animal touches the mountain it must be stoned or shot with arrows.” The rock of God’s salvation will crush him. Or he will die for the piercing guilt he wears.
Therefore do not attempt to climb Mount Sinai. Rather approach the mount at its base and plead with he lives above. He is full of mercy, but he will test every heart. Leave what is Holy to he who is Holy forever. Do not presume that you can grasp what is far beyond your reach. Do not insult the Most High God.
In time, if you persist in service to him, he will grant you the holiness his wisdom dictates for you. Revere the Lord Jesus! Humble yourself before him in his Holy Place. In due time he may lift you up.
Climb the mountain of humility. Its base has roots in the grave. Pride is of the grave. Therefore this mount suits us perfectly. It is sufficient for a man to climb this mountain.
This mountain of humility is often unperceived by man. Pride and desire cloak the eyes. And there is no blazing glory visible at its peak. It is not desirable to the eyes and pride of man. It’s base begins in darkness. And its peak is in but shadows. Though it is not perceived by many, it remains the will of God for man.
This mountain is the Mount of Olives. Here a man comes to prepare himself for death. Here a man comes that he may be stripped of all that he owns. It is here that pride is beaten, humiliated, scourged and murdered. Here a man comes to proclaim the glory of God in Christ Jesus. Here a man comes to say, “May your Holy you will be done.” Here a man comes to learn that God alone is good.
Mount Sinai will kill you; soul and body. The Mount of Olives will burn away your sinful nature, while setting fire to your soul. It is here that faith finds blazing life. It is here that man has no glory. It is here that we find the will of God for all men.
May God grant wisdom to those who read, according to his excellent purpose.
