Day Twenty-seven – הַיּוֹם שִׁבְעָה וְעֶשְׂרִים לָעֹמֶר
But on Mount Zion there will be those who escape, and it will be holy. And the house of Jacob will possess their possessions. Obadiah 17
“Climb every mountain...”
The Psalmist declares, “Come let us go up...” There is a mountain on this earth were the Creator placed His name. He revealed not only His character in so doing but established Himself in time and place. He is a God who is there and is not silent (Francis Schaefer). When God chose to reveal Himself he picked the time and place.
• How do I recognize the presence of the Lord in real time? How does creation proclaim Him without words?
• Have a conversation about mountains, trees, or clouds with someone today. How do these reveal things about God?
• Define special and general revelation. Discuss as a group how each are part of God’s plan to reveal Himself to us. [Reference Ps 19 and Romans 1:18-25]
