This is after the 10 Commandments when the people are standing at the bottom of the mountain scared to death because they heard the voice of the lord when he wrote them. Moses was on mount Sinai as GOD is writing the foundation of the earth he is speaking not only to Moses however so loud that the people at the bottom could here.
Mind you GOD just saved them from the Egyptians by parting the Red Sea. Can you imagine these Egyptians are coming after you on horses and chariots with swords and running away from them you get to the end of the road and there is only a sea, which is water. Right?!?! Because GOD knows this is going to happen, you look back to see if they are still coming and Bam. The sea comes up like a tidal wave and under it is dry land! What! Not only can you cross on dry land not mud dry land! However your enemies are gone, dead! Isn’t that so profound!
Could you imagine your going through a rough time just like the Israelites, your in bondage of self, going through a heart break, anger, addictions. Whatever it may be. GOD obviously knows what your going through because he made it. So that you would come to him for help. With this being said your at the bottom of the mountain and all of a sudden a black cloud comes over you and you can hear the voice of GOD.
Now obey my voice; I will give you advise, and GOD be with you! You shall represent the people before GOD (Your calling), and bring their cases to GOD, and you shall warn them about the statutes and the laws, and make them the way in which they must walk and what they must do. Exodus 18:19-20
So now you know what you must do, To get through your burdens pains, troubles and tragedies. One look to GOD. You now know that you can because he rescued the Israelites from the Egyptians. He freed them from bondage and slavery and he can do that for you as well.
Everything that happens on earth happens over and over again. Generation after generation. Just has the sun rises and sets in the west. Just has the wind blows from the north to the south from the east and the west however you don’t know which way the wind is actually blowing. Such as life.
Since this is before The 10 Commandments he talks about statutes and laws. To reach your full potential, the greatness that lies inside you. You must must learn theses statutes and laws and become one WITH GOD.
He didn’t make them to be easy. He made them for a reason and that is so that we will go to him for everything and trust him no matter what and know that everything comes from GOD. That we would show him unconditional love just has he does us. To kill the spirits of earthy bodies and build us to spiritual wisdom thinking. Our brains are the gardens and our bodies are the tree of knowledge.
So back to standing at the bottom of the mountain. The Israelites are standing there waiting for Moses. Mind you Moses is 84 years old climbing this Mountain. That just shows one Moses dedication to the Lord all his days. Two don’t wait til your older to do so because he’s calling you. Sit quietly. And picture the setting. They are waiting for Moses to come down and talk to them. Moses gets down the mountain and they are trembling. As he is coming off the mountain there is lightening and thundering.
Now when all the people saw the thunder and flashes of lightening and the sounds of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, the people were afraid and trembled, and they stood far off. Exodus 20:18.
Omgosh. They even backed away from the mountain. Shoot I would have too.
And said to Moses, ” You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let GOD speak to us, lest we die”. Moses said to the people, “Do not fear, for GOD has come to test YOU, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin. Exodus 20:19-20.
What is the definition of test? The definition of test is as follows. A procedure intended to establish the quality, performance, or reliability of something, especially before it is taken into widespread use.
My friends, the 10 Commandments are not easy to put into action because you are born into Sin. They are made on tombstones for heavens sake. That should say enough. They are made so that you come to him. That’s it that’s all. They are made that you may become a person of faith. From generation after generation very few Sadly accomplish the most important feeling gift thought whatever you want to call it. It’s called FAITH.
The promise of doing this is indescribable in thought. Yes, people talk about the promises in day AA, NA, even church. Yes there are promises in doing the right thing because quitting some kind of addiction is very hard. I get it. Habits are hard to break call it anything else and your making excuses for your ancestors. He will definitely bless you in healing relationships, pay off bills answer all prayers that you pray and will always provide for you. That is a promise.
Life is about YOU! Who you are. What your character is. What your projecting in to the world. When making yourself better and you praises the maker. Are you thankful for the change. It’s YOU!!!! How are you treating yourself and other people. In which is character.
A good name is to be chosen rather than riches, and favor is better than silver or gold. Proverbs 22:1
The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches. Proverbs 22:4
Riches in both of these verses is rich at heart, not of money rich. The Lord sees the intention of the heart. Trust that!
