Exodus 24

1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.

2 And Moses alone shall come near the Lord: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the Lord hath said will we do.

4 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord.

6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient.

8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.

9 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:

10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.

14 And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

16 And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

  1. Fiery Trials

    15 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

    16 And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

    17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

    18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

    The number six in the Bible represents the weakness of man. Moses was a judge and went before God because of the weaknesses of man…he was drawn into the cloud for six days, but on the seventh day he called moses out of that cloud of weakness and sin and brought him into the presence of divinity. There Gods glory surrounded Moses and brought him into a period of probation, or trial. The entire mount was encompassed by the glory of the Lord, which looked like a consuming fire. There his character would be tested for the sake of all of Israel until God transformed him, spoke with him, prepared him for more ministry, then let Moses live up to his namesake. He withdrew him from the period of trial to continue to be a judge to the people.

  2. 10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

    11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

    It’s amazing how quickly we forget God sometimes. Here we see that the children of Israel saw God. They saw him and are and drank. He was among them, his presence was known. Shortly after this chapter we will see that the children of Israel get discouraged because Moses is with God for too long. He’s gone 40 days and the children of Israel turn their back on God and built an idol. The children of Israel knew God was real but when left to themselves they lost faith in the truth and tried to replace it with something false.

  3. 12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

    The Lord asked Moses to come up to the mountain so he can give him the commandments he wrote so he can teach them. God wants us to live a righteous life and obey his commandments so we can stay away from sin.

  4. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord.

    6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

    Sacrifice is always necessary before the glory of the Lord is exhibited. Their act of sacrifice brought the fire of the Lord to the mount where Moses received the ten commandments.

    Our acts of sacrifice can bring that same fire into our lives and consume out of us anything unlike God, and bring us closer to Him to receive the instructions for our lives.

  5. Exodus 24:7
    “And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and he obedient.”

    When pastor or any other minister reads, teaches, and preaches the Word of God to us, how is it received? Does it fall upon deaf ears or do we gladly receive it? It all depends upon the condition of the ears and heart.
    So when we come to the house of God, let us come with open ears and heart. That we may hear and gladly receive the word of God and say, All that the Lord hath said will we do and be obedient.

  6. SPIRITUAL LEADERS GO FARTHER

    1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.
    2 And Moses alone shall come near the Lord: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

    GOD called Moses and 73 other leaders to come up unto the LORD.

    This passage establishes the principal of Leadership in the church. However there remains journey yet farther for the shepherd, pastor, deliverer, voice from the LORD.

    It is a privilege to lead others to JESUS and an even greater privilege to lead others in JESUS. GOD has trusted SPIRITUAL LEADERS to to GO FARTHER in HIM. GOD has trusted SPIRITUAL LEADERS to come closer to HIM. For this reason church LEADERS should be MORE accountable, committed, dedicated and sacrificial. We have been BLESSED with covenants of Leadership and Ministry at The POFW. We commit ourselves as SPIRITUAL LEADERS to GO FARTHER in SPIRITUAL principals to more efficiently lead others to JESUS and in JESUS.

    13 So Moses and his assistant Joshua set out, and Moses climbed up the mountain of God. 14 Moses told the elders, “Stay here and wait for us until we come back. Aaron and Hur are here with you. If anyone has a dispute while I am gone, consult with them.”

    In these verses we quickly notice a few important details. First we notice that Moses took Joshua with him. What makes this interesting is the fact that Moses took Joshua with him. Just a few chapters back, this scene unfolded.

    Exodus 17:10-11 NLT So Joshua did what Moses had commanded and fought the army of Amalek. Meanwhile, Moses, Aaron, and Hur climbed to the top of a nearby hill. (11) As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage.

    It would seem at first that Moses would have taken Aaron and Hur instead of Joshua. But deeper insight reveals that Aaron and Hur were more on a peer level with Moses while Joshua was being trained to be the future leader of the Israelites. So, he took Joshua the man who was the one leading the army (the one who was in the field doing the grunt work) to a place higher than the ones who held his hands up.

  8. 17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

    My God will answer by fire. In the last days. He will destroy the earth with fire.

  9. 12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

    13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.
    I Love how God was like ” Moses” and Moses never hesitated to answer God. God used Moses in a mighty way, obedience is the key, there were times when he questioned God and he got angry and made crazy on the spot decisions, But for the most part he was obedient. I love how when Moses moved Joshua moved and he just had Moses’s back! I hope that I can have the opportunity to be able to lift up my leaders arms when they need it…I believe that in praying for them I am doing that. God is Great and Greatly to be PRAISED.

  10. 17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

    Wow like cloven tongues a fire that sat upon each of them!
    Jesus is such a personal God.

  11. Exodus 24:3 and Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the judgment and all the people answered with one and said all the words which the Lord hath said we will do

  12. 3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the Lord hath said will we do.

    When we can unite and be unity in following the voice of God, great things can happen.

  13. Exodus 24:17 (NLT)

    17 To the Israelites at the foot of the mountain, the glory of the Lord appeared at the summit like a consuming fire.

    Perhaps this same fire was identical to the fire that burned the bush but didn’t consume. Maybe this fire looked like the pillar of fire that led the children of Israel through the wilderness. Whatever the case this was God showing forth his glory, majesty, and power. Our God is a consuming fire.

    Yet to walk in the fire takes trust is God and faith in his word. What glory awaits those who walk into this fire. Consumed by his spirit and his presence. We learn that Moses face would shine bright after his encounter with the most high. This is what our world needs. Men and women of God consumed by his holy fire.

  14. 18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

    What a great introduction to 40 Days of Passion. January 6th- February 14th. It is my desire to seek the face of God during these 40 Days that He may speak to me and I would refocus on my attention on Prayer, Outreach, Fasting, and The Word!

    I’m ready to impact Fort Worth By the thousands!

  15. 7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient.
    Moses had the support and the obedience of the people that he led. they said they would follow him and do with the LORD commanded them to do. we need to have that same spirit and attitude with our leadership and our pastor we are to be willing and obedient as we serve the kingdom of God and the man and woman of God.

  16. 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes

    The first fruit of the day. There is something special about giving God the first hours of your day. When Brother Gidrose preached about the pealings and he ate those nasty orange peals, he was talking about tithe and offering mostly but I got a strong conviction about time. It is hard for us, being so busy not to just jump up in the morning and hit the ground running with all the tasks that are in front of us. But if we could just give God those first moments of our day then we would change the course of our day drastically. I have seen the difference in praying and studying in the morning versus in the night. I wonder if God feels like an afterthought or like we are giving him pealings? Every man of God that I’ve seen mightily used has a testimony of early morning prayer and study. What made Moses rise up early? He must have known that it pleased God.

  17. v12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of sdtone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou masyest teach them.

    The LORD gave us HIS WORD that we might know HIS mind and obey.

  18. “And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient.” They was aware of who God (Jesus) was, and willingly made the statement; “All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient”. One must likewise ask oneself if one is also willing, or is one waiting until Judgement day. Dear God, open our (my) eyes and ears, and bind deceptiveness in Jesus name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In God we trust”. “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  19. “Now the glory of the LORD rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.”(‭‭Exodus‬ ‭24:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

    And the glory of the Lord abode upon Mount Sinai,…. The divine Shechinah or Majesty, some visible token of it, an exceeding great brightness and splendour, and the cloud covered it six days; either the glory of the Lord, so that it could not be seen it had been; or the mount, as Jarchi but that is observed before, unless repeated for the sake of the, for six days together was covered with a thick cloud, so that he was not seen by any while on the mountain; and thus he remained, until he was admitted into the immediate presence of God, for which he was now preparing, it is probable his thoughts were employed about the glory and greatness of the divine Being; and as he was abstracted from earthly men and things, he was more at leisure to contemplate on divine and heavenly things, and so was more fitted for an intercourse with God. In Jesus Name!!!

  20. 8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.

    Moses is applying the blood of the sacrifice as the blood of the covenant here. This is a type of the blood of Jesus to come. They will need the blood of Jesus to follow after him to be covered under his judgments and commands in covenant to Him.

  21. Verse 3 MSG “So Moses went to the people and told them everything God had said—all the rules and regulations. They all answered in unison: “Everything God said, we’ll do.” Same verse CEV “Moses gave the Lord’s instructions to the people, and they promised, “We will do everything the Lord has commanded!” It is very important to be in unison; but, also to follow through your promises. It is not wise to make promises you do not intend to keep.

  22. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord.

    It is of major importance to include and train the younger generations that will later take on and carry this message and gospel.

  23. “And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭24:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    They both went to the mountain where God called Moses because Joshua was serving Moses. When someone is able to get a blessing, a word, or a gift they often have someone with them. Sometimes it is someone they confide in and other times it is a witness. Either way they both receive some portion of the same circumstance because they are together. They are able to rejoice together.
