Sermon Title: Unshakeable
Sermon Text: Hebrews 12:18-29

God's Kingdom has eternal stability and this earthquake will reveal the temporary nature of this world.
Observe the qualities described with this Old Covenant:
Ominous-"blazing fire and darkness and gloom and tempest..."
Unapproachable-"don't touch the mountain..."
Fear-don't speak v.21,21, "a voice whose words made the hearers beg that no further messages be spoken to them..." So terrifying was the sight that Moses said, "I tremble with fear."
The overall purpose was to establish the separation that exists because of the sinfulness of man the the holiness of God.
New Covenant in Christ in verses 22-24:
Approachable v.22 - "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem"
Celebration v.22 - "to innumerable angels in festal gathering..."
Citizenship v.23 - "to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven..."
Judgment v.23 - "to God, the judge of all..."
Grace and forgiveness v.23 - "to the spirits of the righteous made perfect..."
A way was made v.24 - "to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel."
Living the Word Application: Hold on and don't drift by...
Live a life of worship...reject worldliness. v.28
Worldliness is focusing on this world and the things of this world more than things above...the things of Christ.
Be ready for the earthquake...God's judgment. v.23,25
