We are going to have to be clean to be able to go up to God’s mountain. “And he said unto the people, be ready against the third day; come not at your wives. And it came to pass on the third day that there were thunderings and lightnings.”
Here’s the answer to the symbol we are to teach after while, “thunders and lightnings”, and the thunder and lightnings back there mean the same thing as those in the Revelation. “There were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceedingly loud; so that all the people that were in the camp trembled.” Moses brought forth a people out of the camp to meet with God and they stood at the nether part of the mount, and Mt. Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. We have the answer to every symbol of the 8th chapter of the Revelation. It’s nothing more than a symbol that God moved on the mount. When God moves, the lightning will still flash, the thunder will still roll, and there will be voices, just as we read here.
He said, “When the trumpet sounds long let the people go up.” The trumpet is the voice of God or the voice of Christ or the Word of God. To seal that a little farther let us go to the first chapter of the Revelation and the 10th verse, the beginning of the Revelation. John said: I was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day and I heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet, saying, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.” You know who that is. The trumpet is the voice of God or the Word of God. God, help us to see it. The sounding of the trumpet is going to be responsible for Babylon’s fall. The seals had to be opened, the vials had to be poured out, and the trumpet sounded, to “break Babylon down”. Just the sounding of the trumpet alone, won’t do it. [ The End ]
