Two Mountains and an Altar

January 21, 2018 • 6:00 pm

Scripture: Exodus 20:18–26

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: The Lord's Supper

At Mt. Sinai, God spoke thunderously; at Mt. Calvary He spoke triumphantly. God provided the ten commandments at Sinai as an expression of His moral nature; it's also the standard by which each person is judged. Right after the giving of that law, it's most significant that God immediately makes provision for reconciliation for us who break His laws. In this message, there are three significant truths about the altar God provided Israel that yield vital lessons for us to know today. Today we rejoice in the altar God has provided at Mt. Calvary (Cf. Hebrews 13:10ff) and the Lamb of God Who was sacrificed for us there, that we might be reconciled to God.

Synopsis: In preparation for the Lord's Supper, we draw our attention to Zechariah 13:7 and Matthew 26:26-32 and note the Old Testament prophecy given regarding "The Smiting of the Shepherd." There are two powerful thoughts that are overwhelming when they are considered. NOTE: Since the evening service centers around the observance of this important church ordinance, extended periods of silence were edited out from the audio recording so that there can be continuity in what is spoken and what is heard musically.

Synopsis: In preparation for the observance of the Lord's Supper, this message is a call to remember "The Thorns of the Curse and Crown" - what the first Adam did and what the Last Adam did. It is a call to thank God we have a Redeemer Who defeated Satan and Whose sacrifice not only covers our sin and shame so that we don't stand before God naked, but also clothes each born-again believer with the garments of Christ's righteousness.
