Exodus 19: 1-6
"In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. For they departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness, and there Israel camped before the mount. And Moses went up unto God, and the lORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel."
The children of Israel had gone through a very rough time, and were now camping out at Mt. Sinai. They were just recently freed from slavery in Egypt, and had come now to Sinai to hear from and receive blessings from God.
Today, our world is going through some tough politic, social, and economic times; however, if we sit at the feet of Jesus, we will hear His words, and receive blessings from Him. We will be His people, and He our God.
