Unforgettable and deeply moving was the scene at Mt. Sinai when God proclaimed His eternal Law to the people of Israel. Young and old, including all the leaders of Israel, stood trembling and drew back in holy awe. Never before and never since has God spoken like He did at Mt. Sinai. Only the voice of God as it be heard upon Jesus return on the clouds of heaven and earth will match this majesty of God.
But why did God choose to display Himself to His redeemed people Israel in this moving manner? He never has done anything without a purpose and certainly His purpose then must have significance for us today.
