Mt. Sinai and Mt. Zion

We often think about the differences between Mt. Sinai and our current worship. Hebrews 12:18-29 points out many of these differences. But how is the assembly at Mt. Sinai like our Lord’s Day worship services where we go up to Mt. Zion? Christopher Ash mentions four ways as he compares Exodus 19 to Hebrews 12. On the Lord’s Day

- We still assemble together.  
- We still assemble in the presence of God. (Hebrews 12:23)
- The God in whose presence we assemble is still a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:29)
- We still assemble to hear God’s Word. (Hebrews 12:25)

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
