Ever get the sudden urge to drive, hike or ride up to the Mountains? I sure do! You know what? The “Mountain” (Heaven / Mt Zion / The Firmament) is the place where God dwells, and He wants you to Come up to His Mountain too. God is in Heaven and He wants you to “climb” up there to dwell with Him. Maybe THAT is why we love going to the mountains so much… 🙂
See these related verses:
17 “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God,
Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain.
Then Jerusalem shall be holy,
And no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”
Mt Zion / Zion:
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion! Declare His deeds among the people.
Revelation 14:1 [ The Lamb and the 144,000 ]
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.
Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
25 A voice came from above the firmament that was over their heads; whenever they stood, they let down their wings.
26 And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. 27 Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. 28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.
