New Moon 1/3/41/120

Dear Friends,

This is the week of Standing at Sinai as the Samaritans termed it.  In this week Moses made his first ascent to speak with the Angel of the Presence we now know as Jesus Christ and receive the laws of God.

From this month to the end of the Sixth Month he made six ascents and six descents.  The ascents and their duration and purpose are covered in the paper The Ascents of Moses (No. 070).

In this last week from the 43rd day we see that Israel had left Rephidim, and then two months after leaving Egypt they arrived at the desert near Mount Sinai where they set up camp at the foot of the mountain. Moses went up the mountain to speak with the Lord God (Exodus 19:1-3).

In Exodus 19:4-6 Moses was told that if Israel would obey the voice of God and keep His covenant they would be God’s own possession among all people and they would be to Him a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. He then gave instruction as to what Moses would say to the people (44th day).

On the 45th day, the Third day of the week, there was thunder and lightning. A thick cloud covered the mountain and a loud trumpet blast was heard and the people trembled with fear. Moses led them out of the camp to meet their elohim and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Mount Sinai was covered with smoke because the Lord had come down in a flaming fire. Smoke poured out of the mountain like a furnace.

The Lord gave the boundaries to Moses for Israel and the people were confined and only the priesthood was allowed to approach the Lord (Ex. 19:19-22) (46th day).

Then Moses went up the mountain and the cloud covered the mountain six days. On the Seventh Day the Lord called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.  The appearance of the Glory of the Lord was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the sight of the people of Israel. Moses entered the cloud and went up the mountain and was on the mountain for forty days and forty nights (Ex. 24:15-18)( 47th day).

Friday will be the 48th day and we must remember to prepare for the Feast of weeks on the 49th and 50th days.

This sequence is important to the maintenance of the Holy Spirit among the elect of the Israel of God.

One should also reflect on the week of the Standing at Sinai in reference to the last seven years of the Jubilee from 2020 to 2027. 

In this sequence we will stand before God and be given the boundaries to which we must adhere. Then we will see God and then we will ascend the mountain over the First Resurrection and speak with Messiah face to face along with all the patriarchs and the prophets.

Remember we must be prepared and be ready for the Glory of the Lord.
