If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

WHO SHALL ASCEND?
 
As Moses ascended into the Mount and received the testimony from God, we who are blessed to see the picture as a whole, and not just in part, can see how Christ also fittingly signified the completion of the purpose of God in giving his Sermon on the Mount. This set of laws, for that is really what they are, were to be a guide for his disciples of all ages to follow. But now he is ascended into the greater mountain of the Lord, and is acting as Mediator between the faithful believers and God. God still dwells too high for us to approach Him without the aid of Jesus Christ. We still have a long hill to climb as we daily attempt to walk in his ways and follow in his path, doing our best to become like him.
                      
"Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in His holy place? He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, not sworn deceitfully.” (Ps 24 v 3 - 4)

“Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at His holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy,” wrote the Psalmist - Ps 99 v 9.

Going up to the mountain of the Lord to learn His ways is not necessarily reserved for the days of the Kingdom. We are supposed to be doing it today, so that when that Great Day of the Lord does come, we shall be amongst His kings and priests doing His work. We must look to the mountain of the Lord for our salvation. It is true of all generations. We cannot approach Him unless we do; and “no man comes to the Father except by me” indicates that we cannot do it alone.
