When God Came Down (Exodus 19:1-8)

We have been looking at our redemption that we have in Christ through the life of Israel as God redeemed the people of Israel from Egyptian slavery. Exodus 19 opens with telling us that it is now two months since the people have come out of Egypt. They are about to experience a moment that will change everything in the life of these people. Notice in verses 2-3 that Israel is in the Sinai Desert and they have camp in front of the mountain. Moses has gone up on this mountain. In fact, notice how this is worded because it is amazing: “Moses went up to God.” God has come down and Moses is able to go up the mountain to God. This is a monumental moment for the people of Israel.
