“The Heavenly Mountain Retreat ”
Pastor Herb Huhnerkoch ‘s Sermon: “The Heavenly Mountain Retreat ”
August 21st, 2022 at Abiding Love Lutheran Church
I. Where We are Perfected in Christ’s Blood, Not Damned
II. Where Joy Prevails, Not Darkness and Gloom
18You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”
22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
