Mountain Messages

Psalm 144:6 "...touch the mountains and they shall smoke."

Our "Mountain Mysteries" theme this year is an extremely important theme. From the message of design in Mt. Rushmore, to the intriguing archaeology and Biblical ramifications of Mt. Sinai, this theme is perhaps the most faith-building series of messages of the five themes we have! Added to these two mountains are Mt. Ararat (with the search for Noah's Ark) and the volcanic island (mountain almost underwater) of Krakatao (tying in to the Biblical Flood).

Except for Sinai, each of these mountains ties in perfectly with creation or the Flood. The message of Sinai ("The Secret of Sinai") is the most intriguing of all as we explore the distinct possibility that Bible maps are wrong and God's Word is right! Much more than the archaeological implications is the Biblical message of Sinai. It was the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments and where he saw a portion of God's glory. In addition, we read in the book of Hebrews:
"For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest... (Heb 12:18)
We later read that we've come instead to a mountain named Sion that entails great blessings, one of which is a "new covenant" of blood--the LORD Jesus! The "mountain messages" in God's Word are extremely important indeed as God Himself used His earth to teach us great truths.

Job 12:8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
