But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?
In the pages of Scripture, Mount Zion was called the Mountain of God. It was a place where the presence of God was felt very powerfully.
I’m so glad that the presence of the Lord is no longer confined to a specific place. That being said, there have been times in my life when I have encountered the Holy Spirit in a powerful way. Other times He spoke with a “still, small voice.” When we come to Him in an attitude of expectation, He will speak to our hearts.
There is one thing I have learned in these encounters. When I hear His voice I must be quick to say, “Yes, Lord!” Sometimes He speaks a hard word – a word that calls for change – as He did many times in Israel’s history. Change is never easy, but when ordained by God, it’s for the best.
Seek to spend quality time in the presence of the Lord. But more than that; when He speaks to you, be the one who is ready and willing to agree with His plan for your life.
