In the incredible encounter of Moses with the Lord on Mount Sinai, the Lord speaks of placing limits around the mountain:

“Put limits for the people around the mountain and tell them, ‘Be careful that you do not approach the mountain or touch the foot of it.  Whoever touches the mountain is to be put to death.’ ( Exodus 19:12

These limits were to stop the people crossing to where the Lord’s glory was manifesting.  Only Moses was given permission to go all the way into this glory. In other words, the glory was off limits to the general populace.  Throughout the Old Testament it stayed that way. But not so today!  The limits are off!  We are told in Hebrews 12, we are not coming to the mountain of the Old Testament–the one with limits, but to the new mountain–Mount Zion.  We are coming to the Heavenly Jerusalem.

That which was untouchable is untouchable no more.  Jesus brought access and sonship. He released the precious Holy Spirit among us.  That which Moses had was glorious, but what comes with the ministry of the Holy Spirit is even more glorious!  Paul then speaks of this ministry in depth and starts Chapter 4 with this incredible statement. “Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart” (2 Cor. 4:1).  This more glorious ministry, this limitless ministry, is available to all. But will all avail themselves of it.
