I'll get even one last time in Minnesota the CLE share for our final message and again as I said this morning I have been richly blessed by being here in Bermuda the last nine days my wife and daughter have also enjoyed being here with you and it's been a blessing for me to be able to share with you during this time the various messages that we have covered and just by way of review we started off last Sabbath thing that we need to wake about us we were in a lukewarm condition and examples that show is that we don't need to stay sleeping we don't need to be neat lukewarm Abraham gives an example of living out the three Angels messages you why it gives is the example of someone who fearlessly proclaim the truth during his time Jesus is the ultimate example of someone who was a living sacrifice for us when he died on the cross and then we saw that the reformers carry that spirit forward and I be extension of the Reformation was the raising up of the second Advent movement which we talked about last night and we saw this morning that God sent a special message to this church in eighteen eighty eight to prepare a people to be part of that last a group who will stand when he comes and what were going to talk about tonight the title for the message is the last generation in the cross of Christ were specifically going to be looking at the one hundred and forty four thousand those you are prepared by the messages that we've been talking about those you will stand with the land so before we get into that message I would like to offer a word of prayer and I will kneel and you can now your heads as we get into this message father in heaven we thank you for bringing us out one more time to hear a message that reminds us of our need to be living sacrifices to be transformed by the renewing of our minds and as we speak one more time I pray that you would speak through me and that we would hear what is needed to be heard so we thank you so much for your blessings for bringing us here tonight this is my prayer in Jesus name the last generation in the cross of Christ and God has designed that there should be a generation of faithful Saints living upon the years when Jesus comes in the clouds of the there will be a generation of why that will stand when Jesus comes in the clouds of heaven this will be the last generation upon the years and just as there is a righteous last generation there will be awakened last generation but there will be a generation of people standing upon the years when Jesus comes back in the clouds of heaven and Revelation chapter fourteen verse one through five verses one through five gives a description of this group of people known as the one hundred and forty four thousand and before we read the description one he just explained to you where the hundred and forty four thousand comfort because if you study revelation becomes very clear you have the seven churches the seventh church the Laodicean church the church of the judgment are which we talked about a week ago tonight this shirt is in a lukewarm condition yet Jesus sends eight points of testimony shoes that shares to prepare them to wake-up and when you come then to the seven seals which follow the seven trumpets when you come to the end of the seal you find that there are a group of people that way cannot hate on the message that Jesus gives they are known as the hundred and forty four thousand and then you come to the seven trumpets which follow the seven seals and you find at the end of the seven trumpet that is through the second half of that movement which Jesus himself raised up that God prepares the one hundred and forty four thousand and specifically after you come past the church is sealed and traveled to Revelation fourteen you see is through the proclamation of the three Angels messages but the one hundred and forty four thousand are prepared and we saw this morning that Jesus himself is a riveting demonstration on the cross of Jesus dying on the cross he demonstrates to us the third Angels message and it is the message that prepares the one hundred and forty four thousand so let's look now at Revelation chapter fourteen verses one through five and here John the regulator says and I will and love all away and stood on the Mount Zion and with them an hundred forty and four thousand having his father 's name written in therefore and I heard a voice from heaven as the voice of many waters and as the voice of a great founder and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their cars and they sung as it were a new song before the throne and before the four beast in the elders and no man could learn that song at the hundred and forty and four thousand which were redeemed from the years these are they which were not defiled with women for they are virgins these are they which follow the Lamb weather so whatever he guess these were redeemed from among men being the first reason they got into the lamp and in their mouth was found no guile for they are without fault before the throne of God that is your description of the hundred and forty four thousand Revelation chapter fourteen and up until this point in the book of Revelation God 's people have been under attack they have been under duress they have been facing persecution but Dragon has been wrought with amusement coming after them you see the whole world makes unjust victory against them in Revelation thirteen above finally and Revelation fourteen John sees a picture of the three dogs people are no longer under attack for persecution they are standing on Mount Zion where the land and may have in their warhead the name of the father written this is the Wham 's father which is in the lamb of course is Jesus know what we know about this hundred and forty four thousand they are standing on Mount Zion with the land they have the father 's name and therefore as they sing a new song they follow the Lamb weather so whatever he go with they are the first fruits undergone in the lamp they have no guile in their mouth and they are without fault before the throne of God so what we know about them they have God 's name and therefore had specifically the father 's name they follow the Lamb Jesus wherever he goes they have known John Iowa or do see in their mouth and they are faultless before the throne of God they have to do that if the people that we are striving to be part one we show you a few things that are very interesting about one hundred and forty four thousand first of all they are standing with the land does you want to be standing when the Lamb the one hundred and forty four thousand are standing with Jesus and when you come in John chapter one verse twenty ninth as John the Baptist is pointing people to Jesus for the very first time as Jesus comes into the most of John the Baptist John the Baptist says as he sees Jesus behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world here are a group of people for the one hundred and forty four thousand who have warranted to behold the Lamb he has taken away their sin and they are standing on Mount Zion with him whom they have beheld and not only that they have the father 's name written in therefore heads when we know about the father 's name only to show you one versus many others that we could look at the in Isaiah chapter fifty seven versus fifteen we read for thus saith the high and lofty one that inhabits eternity whose name is holy God 's name is holy and the one hundred and forty four thousand who stand on mount Zion with the lamb they held a father 's name which is wholly written and therefore had in their minds that means that their minds are wholly they found the mind of Christ let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus one Paul says that Philippians two he's just not speaking hyperbole year he is saying how the mind of Christ which is slowly and the one hundred and forty four thousand have learned that experience and they have allowed God 's character his name which is slowly to be written in therefore had because they have beheld the Lamb of God now might be holding we become changed and as we behold the Lamb of God who is always we are changed into his image and his holy character becomes our character and I really like the fact that the father 's name is written in our four heads of the neurologist I really like because in the forehand that the frontal of the frontal love is the part of the brain where we make our conscious choices for good or evil that is where the will cover the will reside that's where our conscience is in God is specifically saying I am putting my name in the part of your mind where you make your decisions forget or for evil and here are a group of people at the end of time in a world of evil in our world of wickedness who have chosen to stand on the side of God and I said because we beheld Jesus the Lamb of God 's land upon the cross 's land from the foundation of the world we have been changed and she was damaged and we will share you do get to be arrived to be holy through his power and through the grace and God says I won't flip my name my character on your four head because you have chosen to live a holy life standing on Mount Zion with the land Jesus Christ having the father 's name written in therefore and members shoot creates a scene that you can imagine with your ears hearing the voice from heaven the voice of many waters can you imagine what is going to feel like we can but this year the heavenly sounds when we stand on the sea of glass there is nothing on this Earth I compare that can compare to what we will experience in heaven and in verse three as they sung as it were a new song before the throne and before the four beasts and the elders and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand which were redeemed from the years and the Bible when you sing a song in this leave insurance songs are him when you sing a song when a writer writes a song what is that song conveying in the Bible especially a song describes an experience read the Psalms the Psalms of David read the song of Moses in Exodus fifteen after they pass through the Red Sea and escape the Egyptians in the one hundred and forty four thousand they are singing a new song because it's a new experience and experience that no one else has ever gone through these are the group of people who pass through that time of trouble described in Daniel chapter twelve such as the world has never seen and they have passed through and have been faithful to God and so they can sing a song of an experience that no one else has ever gone through and then verse four these are they which are not defiled with women prophetically speaking this means they were not defiled by the woman Babylon or the harlot daughters and others allots you that not only were they separate from Babylon Bonanza some of them have never been part of Babylon some of them have come out of Babylon but not only in name only had they separated themselves but in their life and in their experience and my brothers and sisters in God 's remnant church there is no place for the methods of worship styles and the this is a Babylon among God last date people because God what they people have not been filed by Babylon and the and the harlot daughters if we are going to be part of the one hundred and forty four thousand we won't not be defiled with the theology the practice of the ideas or concepts of modern-day Babel for they are virgins notice these RNA which followed the way with her so whenever he get with listen when you learn to behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world as you keep your eyes on Jesus he says keep following one other problems that we often has happened is that we don't keep our eyes on Jesus we don't follow him wherever he would take us and if we're going to follow the land where there soever ye go in heaven we need to learn to do that here serve don't expect to just get to heaven and say well I never followed Jesus on earth but now all folly Jesus but if we learn to follow him here we will follow him whithersoever he these were redeemed from among men being the firstfruits unto God and to the life notice first five and in their mouth was found to know God for they are without fault before the throne of God but here's what I want to submit to you the hundred and forty four thousand have no trial in their mouths no deceit they are without fault before the throne of God because as they have kept their eyes on the Lamb of God they have been changed into the same damage and it's very interesting if you go to first Peter chapter two you find something about Jesus that we see in the one hundred forty four thousand Turner first Peter chapter two starting in verse one first Peter chapter two starting in verse twenty and here's Peter the apostle Peter speaking of the Christian church for what glory is if one you need not that it for your faulty shall take it patiently but yes when you do well and suffer for you take it patiently this is acceptable with Scott Peterson worsened when you mouse off and you get review for massing and you take it patiently that this is just what should be expected anyhow in the modern world the day when we must not and we get called out great we said how dare you tell me that I messed up don't cross my pride and yet the Scriptures and if you mess up in your cold out for you should accept must just the way it is the not only that when you choose the right thing and suffer for it and you get called out for doing what's right for standing for what's right and you take it patiently that is what is acceptable with God about only by the grace of God that we can do that because human rights work in a flight back from organization I think the right thing I stood up for what's right how dare usually me this way twenty one for even hereunto were you called because Christ also suffered for us leaving us an example that ye should follow his steps of Christ suffered he gives us an example we should follow afternoon in what way verse twenty two who did no sin neither was guile found in his mouth there's Jesus no guile in his mouth just like the one hundred and forty four thousand in the next verse who when he was reviled reviled not again when he suffered he threatened not by Chen noted himself to him the judges righteously Jesus as he goes through the final trial of life on this earth as he is being spat upon as a human being 's laugh as they are saying prophesy and if you're the son of God come down from the cross and he had done nothing wrong he patiently said that abuse and that suffering and he committed it to God the father judges righteous and not the example against us he didn't fight back and have Jaya one has now what an example the one hundred and forty four thousand fees are those who apparently are going to come through great tribulation through suffering through trials and just as Jesus went through the experience of across the one hundred and forty four thousand have learned to behold the Lamb of God so that when they are reviled when they suffered when they are threatened they will respond the way Jesus did is they they go through the crises of life for the final time of trouble as they go through that was great trouble and that's something for us to seriously pondered to seriously examine our hearts what are we like when we are crossed when our wills are cross our spouse gets on lesson if we can handle our spouse for early going to do one on when all the ships are on the line at the end of time no God Hill and they are without fault before the throne of God and it's interesting and Seabury 's Hebrews chapter nine verse fourteen we see another description of Jesus actually was server thirteen and Paul's making them an illustration comparing the blood of bulls and also the blood of Christ verse thirteen furthermore more than a guess and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean sanctify the purifying of the flesh how much more shall the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God and noticed in the King James does as he offered himself without spot but if you have a marginal reading you will see he offered himself without fault in the word and agreed first spot and fall is the same and is identical to the word in the Greek used in Revelation fourteen five meaning that Jesus offered himself without fault as the Lamb of God she was without fault before God he was a perfect sacrifice she was without fault just like the one hundred and forty four thousand described in Revelation fourteen so the one hundred and forty four thousand they have the father 's name which is slowly written and therefore heads they have no John Ireland their mouths and they are without fault before the throne of God and each situation having the father 's character and therefore had passed just like Jesus Jesus and the father are one without fault before the throne of God that's just like Jesus know you know I'll end my mouth that is just like Jesus the one hundred and forty four thousand and they have kept their eyes on the Lamb of God has been changed into the image of the land himself and they stand on Mount Zion with they have been transformed by the three Angels messages in the likeness of Jesus Christ and as we want to gain maybe one lasts whence of an understanding during this week of revival how the one hundred and forty four thousand jobs last date he both come from God second half of that movement meaning that God designed that we should be among that number as we look one more to write about how this group is prepared I want to bring you back deceivers chapter twelve and were going to live through a get section of Hebrews twelve has we see what it means to behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world so that we can have the father 's name are for it so that we can follow the Lamb whithersoever he got so that we can be without fault before the throng of God and have no guile in our mouse heaters chapter twelve starting in verse one wherefore seeing we also work and pass them out with so great a cloud of witnesses let us lay aside every weight and the sandwich stuff so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us he was eleven has just happened we've seen these heroes of faith and policy what we are compelled about what a great cloud of witnesses will get the heroes of faith will get GMAC look at able look to Abraham Isaac Jacob Sarah Moses all of the elders those you were stopped they were sawn asunder of whom the world was not worthy to look at them they are cloud of witnesses if they can live a life of faith we tend to let us lay aside every weight lettuce lay aside the sin was sucked out the so easily beset us and let us run with page race set before us with when Paul says wondrously aside every weight and the sun which doth so easily beset us we all now just how easy it is sent is basically all you breathing for us and in some areas of our lives we've become so good at it that we keep that we do it automatically without even thinking him we hardly feel bad about any of Scriptures is the way it assign its easily be setting here is easily bringing you down any so not only to lay aside the Senate in your life that every way because he says were running a race and there are some things in your lives that might be okay if you weren't running the Christian race on the way to heaven but we are running the Christian race on the way to heaven and just as a marathon runner doesn't wear a backpack loaded down with bottles of water but rather has the bottles thrown to him as he or she is running and just drinks on the run people shouldn't be weighed down by unnecessary burden and we might say what's up this is a salvation alleges that what the problem the problem is it's slowing you down in your walk with God in other might be a news program is okay to watch on television I watch them from time to time but if you're watching all day every day and that's all you can think about and Jesus has been pushed aside that's become away in your life that needs to be laid aside and you can apply that to anything else on this given the fairly benign example let us lay aside every weight he in the sin which so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us Allison is not the only person we have this would sound like legal because it sounds like you have to do the work yes we met a choice yes when I get choices to lay aside the waves in the seminar life the way we do it is found in verse two looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith this is what it means the whole lamb of God was taken away the sin of the world where we are told to lay aside the way in the cinema like and as we behold the Lamb of God he takes most of the way he's like if you're going to Mahone made as you run this way race I will take persons away from you you don't have the power to take this way but I can forgive your send if you trust in my merits and as we trust in the merits of Jesus we receive forgiveness and we also received power to run my race to begin that race and we are called to run that race with Haitians and Paul talks about patients and one other passage in Hebrews ten oldest mention this in Hebrews ten thirty six pieces for you have need of patience that after you are done the will of God you might receive the promise verse thirty seven for yet a little while and he that shall come will come and will not tarry now the just shall live by faith but if any man draw back my soul shall have no pleasure in him but we are not of the mentors who drawback in the tradition of them not believe in the saving of the salt so you put that universes together were running a race with patients that is leading us to the coming of Jesus Christ because after you have done the will of God you will receive the promised seed shell welcome and will not tarry as we waited for Jesus to come it takes patients in the area to keep running forward and cannot draw back the tradition the devil wants us to take our eyes off of the author and finisher of our faith so that we won't get to the finish line by Jesus to say Paul the apostle if you keep your eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of your face and you run with patience the race that is set before you can get a little while he that shall come welcome and he will and that while the defendant to take you and you see in that passage while we are running that raises is the just shall live by faith in your running that race with patients not all connected to the third Angels so let's look a little bit more in Hebrews twelve received looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith now were talking in spiritual terms about running a race by definition when you run a race there is a starting line and a finishing line is they're not Edwards hold to run a race therefore has a starting point and has a finishing point and the question is if we look at this passage does the apostle Paul shows what the starting line is and what the finishing line has what he really gives you the answer because he says will look unto Jesus who is the author and finisher of the faith race that you are running were running the race of faith with patients and Jesus helps us to start the race as the author of our faith and he promises us that if we keep our eyes on him he will help us to finish the race as a finisher of our faith he's not been allowed as well let us go halfway through the race and say well you done okay for the first half let's see how you can do on your round the unit we log on to let go of us we say man I've been having a great Christian experience I've been coming along I think of the starting my own way now but if we learn to keep our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith he will take us from the beginning point to the finishing now doesn't hold devastating specifically if Jesus is the author if he's the finisher what the starting point and what the finishing before carefully looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the show I that was set before him in the year at the cross despising the shame and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God you see it finished the finishing line is clearly the right hand of the throne of God what's the starting point across who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross which is why Jesus says that if any man will follow me let him deny himself take up his cross daily and follow me the race of faith being stands out across as we see the author of our faith in dealing the cross despising the shame for the joy that was set before him and those you would be saved as a result of his sacrifice and as we run the race set before us we look at the joy set before us which is Jesus our Savior who has promised eternal salvation each one of us so we start the race of faith at the cross we come to the foot of the cross we see Jesus hanging on the cross and through faith we become crucified with him and become living sacrifices that is the beginning point in the race that we are called to run a and the good news is that there is a finishing line that finishing line is at the right him on the throne of God 's Word Jesus is seated and in Hebrews twelve he is described as the author and finisher of our faith seated at the right hand of the throne of God but in Hebrews chapter eight verse one describe as our great high priest seated at the right hand of the throne of God Cedeno where the finish line and our faith experiences today the start of the cross and every day we are running that raises my face looking to Jesus on the cross but we are also looking to the finish line where Jesus as our great high priest is seated at the right hand of the throne of God in the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary where he has been since eighteen forty four city and what that tells us about this race of faith that we are called to run this race of faith reminds us of a cross into the sanctuary as we run with patience the race set before us as we look to the author of our faith we see fruit yet nice for our sins available through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ we also see that he will empower and then as we look to the right hand of the throne of God as we look ahead to the finisher of our faith seated at the right hand of the throne of God we see our great high priest who says come boldly to the throne of grace because I was tempted in all points like his URL with our center so I can help you to live a victorious life so that you can lay aside that way you can lay aside the sin in your life that's so easily beset you because as your high priest who has finished the race I know what it's like to give you power to overcome the temptation so as we behold the Lamb of God the author and the finisher of our faith we received the faith and the grace and the power to receiver and M transformation and empowerment to live a life to run a race the swallows after our Savior in on my parade starting at the cross being crucified with him living by the faith of Jesus and ultimately getting to the finish line at the right hand of the throne of God and he realized that Jesus gave a analysis especially to the latest in church notice we talked a little bit about this last week that is what Jesus is Revelation three twenty and twenty one behold I stand at the door and knock if any man hear my voice and open the door I won't come in to him and will sup with him and he with me so Jesus seminar doorknocking is as if you open the door I will come and enter theory based on at least than studying always when we let Jesus come and that means we have been crucified with Christ and as we are crucified with Christ because we let them come and notice what happens in verse twenty one she would hand out overcome will I grant to sit with me where in my throne not the finish line on the race of faith will I grant to sit with me and my ground even as I also overcame and sat down with my father and his throne in first John five portals that that this is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith so if we overcome as Jesus overcame we have the faith of Jesus and Jesus is saying I am the author and finisher of your faith I help you to start your faith experience at the cross he received forgiveness and cleansing you run this race with patience with Faith keeping your eyes on me and as you keep your eyes on me as I have content in your heart I will bring you to the finish line and will allow you to see down at the right hand of the throne of God with me in heaven as you finish this race of faith the message to the way of the sea insureds and it connects to a reading and he restructured twelve so Jesus he is the author and finisher of our faith he helps us to begin the race of faith he helps us to lay aside every weight and the sandwich that so easily beset us and what he helps us to run with patience the race set before us because we see him in the cross we see him despising the shame we see him ultimately victorious and seated at the right hand of the throne of God now Paul Niles that this may be a challenging halt and begin and he continues on verse three a fever stroll for consider him that in the order such contradiction of sinners against himself lest he be wearied and faint and your mind policy consider Jesus looked at the altar and finisher of your faith who when you're such contradiction of sinners against himself meaning that when he was here on this earth he has with a life of purity and he was seated he faced such revolting and read violent interactions he was spat upon he was mocked he was told to come down from the cross and as you see Jesus into your and such awfulness out of his love for us surely that could have an effect on your mind as you run this race of patient medicine because naturally speaking we would become weary and faint as we run a race in the way to avoid weary in our Christian experience the feel like fainting just feel like stopping to feel like turning around like busters again now considered consider the Lamb of God and not his first four you have not yet resisted unto them why it's driving again sent the normal Christian experiences were running the race locations okay I saw Jesus on the cross and then my first trial counsel and I were like July surely God would know what to expect me to go through this and have policy if you keep your eyes on Jesus you can resist sin on the blog you can be faithful unto death as you run with patience the race set before us now what's very interesting is right after that in verses five through seven you see in essence the way to see a message because you see in verse five pulses my son despise not thou the chastening of the Lord nor say when thou art review defense for whom the Lord while the teach basement and scourges every son whom he receive it if you and your chastening God deal with dealing with viewers with some are one classy whom the father chased off and remember in the latest CMS as Jesus says as many apply while I reviewed Jason so see verse twelve is a message to the Laodicean church this is a message saying Laodicea in your any among the hundred and forty four thousand to run with patience the race that a set of four eight so that you can application for the stack described in Revelation fourteen and in order to have that patient just as Jesus says he will rebuke and chasing you and the Laodicean message policy media in viewer the choice of the Lord as you run this race with patient because this shapes in the Boulevard is remove when we series from your life so that you will be strengthened Iran the race of faith if those impurities remain you what fallout become weary and I and so the latest in messages seen here and he ritual continuing on notice in verse twelve and connect the comparison of how fathers of the flesh of our flesh chasing is the hobgoblin fathers chastening as a person for who they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure that he for our profit that we might be partakers of his holiness and remember the hundred and forty four thousand they have the father 's name written and therefore had and we sign Isaias fifty seven fifteenth but the father 's name ever draw the name is holy so as we go through this chastening it allows God to remove the impurities for my wife and just as Jesus said the way to see insured I counsel you to buy gold tried in the fire that gold tried in the fire is making our faith your continuing verse eleven now no chastening for the presence even to be joyous but grievous nevertheless afterward a yield of the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby alleviating your trials will think anybody enjoys trials and sometimes one am going to your particular trial you will remind me of the Bible versus is in everything give thanks and I can tell you that at that moment humanly speaking that is not the verse I want to hear that you know God allows us to go through trials security virus and a Scripture says here afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness and the notice first twelve verse twelve of key resources wherefore with all the hands which hang down and the feeble knees and make straight paths for your feed was not which is lame he turned out of the way the letter rather be healed you can make the case that one with the hands which hang down to you saying you need to allow yourself to be crucified with Christ because you license making her think I don't want those the mail to go through my hands just allow me to go through this experience without those nails going through I don't want that part of the crucifixion but if we are crucified with Christ we will be crucified in every sense of the word spiritually speaking as the Scripture says you're running a race with patient lift up my hands and knees allowing yourself to be crucified with Christ and make straight have for your feet walk a straight path and continue offers continuing numbers fourteen follow peace with all nine and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord and there you see it in it's a dangerous gospel that says you can stand in the presence of a holy God with all of your filthy God is merciful we commented his presence with a repentant heart and he will take the rack the filthiness off of us but we don't commandeer his presence presenting that are around the field filthiness are acceptable in and I also like results follow peace with all yes sometimes we can say I'm in a stand for the truth and I'm just give us say it like it is under the young modern-day allies in the weeds you so in a way that does not follow peace with all men workers were just doing it to make a name for a sum being on the one who always space up against error but were not doing in the spirit of Christ we we need to stand up for the truth yes we do but we do so by following peace if we can follow peace with all men and women without men which no man shall see the Lord and none of this was never thinking it's interesting how Hebrews twelve connects to the message of the hundred and forty four thousand after we see that we need to make straight paths for our feet noticed pulsing we are coming somewhere as we met as we run the sweat race we are running a race with patients we are making straight paths for our feet and numbers taking impulses for you are not common to the amount that might be such and then burn with fire nor on the blackness and darkness incentives and the sound of the trumpet and the voice of words which voice they heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them anymore this is Mount Sinai in the wilderness for they did not endear that which was commanded and if so much as a beast touch the mound it shall be stoned or thrust through the dark and so terrible was the site done Moses said I exceedingly fear and way now notice in verse twenty two where we are coming as we run this race with patients where we come in numbers twenty two that you are on on some mouse on and under the city of the living God and the heavenly Jerusalem and to an innumerable company of angels listen those of you who are running the race with patients that is set before you the race that starts at the cross and in at the right hand of the throne of God this race is taking used to Mount Zion on so that you can stand with the lamp on malathion with the one hundred and forty four thousand Hebrews chapter well if the methods especially Pentagon last date sure to resume her to see insured to prepare us to be part of a one hundred and forty four thousand and we do so by working under Jesus the author and finisher of our faith he's the author of our faith of the cross he helped the run with patience the race that is set before us he also finished the race and we finished that race at the right hand of the throne of God on Mount Zion and the heavenly Jerusalem and we do so because we have learned to keep our eyes on Jesus the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world the one
