Please read “Go to the Mountain Top Part 1” for context.
Previously we established that all parts of the God-Head are ubiquitous in the Bible, and that the great controversy between good and evil is being fought. With that in mind we will return to the mountain top setting and examine the pertinence of the Ten Commandments.
In the wilderness of Sinai, God gives Moses a message to inform the children of Israel on how to sanctify themselves to receive His tables of stone. And on the condition of obedience, “and keeping [His] covenant”, God promises that, “…ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation…”(Exodus 19:5,6). From that we can conclude that keeping the law of God comes with great advantages on earth and in heaven.
Now we will fast forward to the time after God spoke and wrote the Ten Commandments. The children of Israel were dumbfounded, afraid, and made sure to stand a good distance from, “the thunderings,..lightnings,…noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking” (Exodus 20:18). But Moses beckons the people saying, “Fear not; for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not” (Exodus 20:20). Therefore, the Ten Commandments, are an immutable covenant designed for us to worship God and not fall to sin like Adam and Eve did.
Ergo, on the Mountain of God, the Ten Commandments were given as our test of loyalty to the Father. For through His Covenant God will prove us.

Please stay tuned as we connect the keeping of the Ten Commandments with Revelation 14’s Three Angels’ Messages and the closing conflicts of the last days. Thank you.
