The Trumpet Sounded

The trumpet sounded (God’s Voice) like nothing we can imagine or even think to hear coming from the mountain along with the fire. The people were afraid and ran with fear. They asked Moses to speak to them and not God, for the people worried that death would come upon them. Why would they think death would come? Because their hearts were still not right with God. Many of those original Hebrews were from many nationalities and countries. They came to know God when the plagues came upon Egypt. Therefore, when it came time to migrate away from the wicked Pharaoh, Moses asked all who wanted to leave to pack their belongings and travel with them. They took on the Hebrew title once they left the land of Egypt. These were the ones who lived among the Hebrews and had already acknowledged the customs, but they were idol worshipers.

Moses, guided by God, led the Hebrews to Mt. Sinai, the mountain of God, where His temporary sanctuary was established on earth. This journey was a physical relocation and a spiritual pilgrimage to help the Hebrews understand their place in God’s plan. God intended them to learn and embrace their role in His divine order, following the commandments and statutes set before the world’s creation.

Read Exodus 19:16–20: "Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because the Lord had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled greatly.”
