In Isaiah 14 Satan made the bold statement he would sit on the mount of the congregation, the farthest north. What mountain was he referring to?
Ezekiel 28:14 gives us a clue.
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
Which mountain was it that God placed him on?
Psalm 68:15-16
15 A mountain of God (His holy mountain) is the mountain of Bashan; a mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.
16 Why do you fume with envy, you mountains of many peaks (the kingdoms of this world)? This is the mountain which God desires to dwell in; yes, the Lord will dwell in it forever (so this mountain is where God will dwell on earth to guide His people).
This particular mountain rises from the valley of Bashan, thus called the mountain of Bashan, but its literal name is Hermon or Mt. Sion.
Deuteronomy 4:48 reveals this.
48 from Aroer, which is on the bank of the River Arnon, even to Mount Sion (that is, Hermon), (So Mt. Hermon and Mt. Sion are one and the same)
Why so much discussion about this mountain? Because Satan has challenged God for the rightful ownership of it! For instance a huge assault of Satan took place here. It was this very mountain that the fallen angels first touched down on earth that married into mankind creating an altered race. This atrocity started from the very mountain God claimed as His!
The Book of Enoch, the 7th from Adam explains,
Enoch 6:1-6
1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters (see Genesis 6).
2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another” 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.'
3 And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.'
4 And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.'
5 Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it.
6 And they were in all two hundred who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it.
You see, in many versions of the Bible Sion is translated only with a Z as Zion, but if you will look in the Strong's Concordance you will see for yourself, every New Testament definition in the Greek dictionary is number 4622, meaning:
4622. Sion see-own' of Hebrew origin (6726); Sion (i.e. Tsijon), a hill of Jerusalem; figuratively, the Church (militant or triumphant):--Sion.
As Mount Zion, spelled with a Z, governed Old Jerusalem so Mount Sion, spelled with an S, governs New Jerusalem. As New Jerusalem spiritually is the Bride of Christ so Mt. Sion is His government!
Revelation 21:2 shows us the Bride.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God (she was conceived in the mind of God and a part of His plan for restoration of creation), prepared as a bride adorned for her husband (these are the people of God, the body of Christ).
Revelation 14:1 (the government)
1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion (number 4622 in the Greek dictionary meaning Sion), and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads (these are God's priests, His government, the head of His body).
This same Sion is seen in the Old Testament as number 7865, which is the Sion of the before mentioned Deuteronomy 4:48.
7865 Siy'on see-ohn' from 7863; peak; Sion, the summit of Mt. Hermon:--Sion.
It is important for us to see the two different mountains to understand latter day knowledge. So the mountain or hill in old Jerusalem, Zion, was a physical shadow of Mt Hermon, the majestic holy mountain of God, where He said He dwelled. The only other number listed in the Old Testament as Sion is 6726. It says 6726 is the same as 6725. We should really begin to understand the importance of this mountain as we look at these definitions!
6725 tsiyuwn tsee-yoon' from the same as 6723 in the sense of conspicuousness (Compare 5329); a monumental or guiding pillar:--sign, title, waymark.
5329 natsach naw-tsakh' a primitive root; properly, to glitter from afar, i.e. to be eminent (as a superintendent, especially of the Temple services and its music); also (as denominative from 5331), to be permanent:--excel, chief musician (singer), oversee(-r), set forward.
5330 ntsach nets-akh' (Aramaic) corresponding to 5329; to become chief:--be preferred.
5331 netsach neh'-tsakh or netsach {nay'-tsakh}; from 5329; properly, a goal, i.e. the bright object at a distance travelled towards; hence (figuratively), splendor, or (subjectively) truthfulness, or (objectively) confidence; but usually (adverbially), continually (i.e. to the most distant point of view); --alway(-s), constantly, end, (+ n-)ever(more), perpetual, strength, victory.
5332 Netsach nay'-tsakh probably identical with 5331, through the idea of brilliancy of color; juice of the grape (as blood red):--blood, strength.
We can see just from these definitions Sion speaks of something much, much bigger than a hill in Jerusalem, the old Zion. It is for this glorious mountain Satan challenged God! But here is the irony of God. He really isn't counting on either physical mountain to win the final battle! There is yet a third Sion!
Hebrews 12:18-24 speaks of it.
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched (so not the Zion or Sion previously discussed) and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,
19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore (the blasts of God's trumpet from this Sion will only be heard by those seeking truth).
20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow (not referring to the animals God created, but the beasts of Daniel and Revelation).”
21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”) (this mountain is a place of shelter and peace)
22 But you have come to Mount Zion (4622 –should have been translated Sion) and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem (New Jerusalem), to an innumerable company of angels,
23 to the general assembly (congregation) and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God (the born again are registered or recorded in heaven) the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel (the people of this Sion are made perfect by the blood of the Lamb).
So where is this mountain, how do we get to it?
The road to this Sion is made visible only through the Word. A closer look through the eye of discernment will show us a greater depth to the truth found in I Corinthians 3:9. It will give us insight to the third Sion.
I Corinthians 3:9
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry (land), ye are God's building (His house).
The definition of husbandry is found in the Strong's Greek dictionary 1091.
1091. georgion gheh-ore'-ghee-on neuter of a (presumed) derivative of 1092; cultivable, i.e. a farm:--husbandry.
1092. georgos gheh-ore-gos' from 1093 and the base of 2041; a land-worker, i.e. farmer:--husbandman.
1093. ge ghay contracted from a primary word; soil; by extension a region, or the solid part or the whole of the terrene globe (including the occupants in each application):--country, earth(-ly), ground, land, world.
We begin to see in the light of truth, New Jerusalem, God's city is made of people. They are His and chosen by Him, registered to Him and solely owned by Him, His Bride, as is also the real Mt. Sion, the mountain where He sits as King Priest and rules through His government.
I Peter 2:2-6 makes the picture clearer.
2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,
3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house (the body of Christ), a holy priesthood (the head of the body), to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
6 Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion (4622 – Sion) a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame (Again, Zion should have been translated both times as Sion as its number is 4622).”
So when Satan decreed he would sit on the Mount of God he meant he would manifest in the natural as King on God's physical mountain so mankind could see his glorious victory over God and bow to him. This reality began to take place with the fallen angels fulfilling his evil intent to alter mankind so he could easily rule through the men he chose and placed in authority. So physical mount Sion held captive by Satan actually wages war against the spiritual mountain Sion of God through the human race!! In other words, heaven and hell meet head on through mankind!!
Satan said he would sit on God's mountain so let us look at the word “sit” in the Hebrew dictionary in the Strong's Concordance number 3427.
3427 yashab yaw-shab' a primitive root; properly, to sit down (specifically as judge. in ambush, in quiet); by implication, to dwell, to remain; causatively, to settle, to marry:--(make to) abide(-ing), continue, (cause to, make to) dwell(-ing), ease self, endure, establish, X fail, habitation, haunt, (make to) inhabit(-ant), make to keep (house), lurking, X marry(-ing), (bring again to) place, remain, return, seat, set(- tle), (down-) sit(-down, still, -ting down, -ting (place) -uate), take, tarry.
Wow! The people Satan places on God's mountain, the physical Mt. Hermon to carry out his desires are in the supernatural his bride, his household that he is married to! The direct counterfeit of the spiritual Sion! We should ask ourselves who sits on the throne of our hearts and whose household are we a part of? Let us look at 4150, the number for congregation. Remember there are two, God's gathered people and Satan's as you read these next definitions.
4150 mow`ed mo-ade' or moled {mo-ade'}; or (feminine) (God's Bride or Satan's) moweadah (2Chronicles 8:13) {mo-aw-daw'}; from 3259; properly, an appointment (like Sabbath), i.e. a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival (God's feasts found in Leviticus 23 or Satan's holidays); conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose) (to be taught or lied to); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting (Babylon, New Jerusalem); also a signal (as appointed beforehand):--appointed (sign, time) (God's people will not be caught unaware, complacency has been taught Satan's people), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season (Day of the Lord), solemn(-ity), synogogue, (set) time (appointed).
Side Note: Truth, revelation, God's knowledge is released through His feasts. They are to be experienced not treated as a ritual. But, Satan has seen to it that mankind has formed traditions and customs concerning God's feasts so all promised through them concerning His people is void and has no effect on them.
Mark 7:13
13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”
He truly rules the congregation of the world's churches and the many religions of man. Concerning appointed times the enemy has had mankind predict the end so many times people laughed at the latter attempts. Humanity is complacent, in fact it is almost a laughing matter when another group comes up with a date. The knowledge of God He intended to feed His flock at His Feasts would set mankind free of the false doctrines that permeate the church world, raise the moral standards of the world's pagan society, chop away at their financial debt and loose their bondage to its governments. All of this mishap has come about through the enemy's plans to sit as God on Mount Hermon. Satan with the limited knowledge of a created being has doggedly taken over the physical mountain of Hermon. All he has accomplished is foolishness as God meant all along the spiritual Mount Sion! In fact, all Satan has managed to do is give us an evil counterfeit picture of the real Mount Hermon. At the summit of the physical Mount Hermon is the United Nations, at the top of God's Hermon is David's Tabernacle or the house of David. As Satan dwells in lore as the shepherd goat god Pan in Mount Hermon the Lord dwells sovereignly in the supernatural Mount Hermon as Jehovah Rohe. As Pan is the god of fright and panic, Jesus is the Prince of Peace, the God of love.
Another piece of irony concerning the revealing of the people chosen by God, He said in Romans 11:26 “all Israel would be saved” yet in Revelation 7 Dan and Ephraim are missing. You guessed it, they are the living stones! You see, the 10 northern tribes of Abraham’s seed were scattered and lost in the nations of the world. Lost that is to man, but not lost to God. He knows every hair on our heads, so it is no big deal for the Father to keep track of the bloodline of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, even through crossed many times into the people of the world. It is these God is calling to His holy spiritual mountain, to learn, be set free of Satan's world by adhering to His law. Not the law of Moses, but the universal law and order of the universe. Israel is being called home and out of the world, some to become a part of Sion, some to make larger His city.
Jesus said He was sent to the lost sheep of Israel.
Matt 15:24
24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
First He ministered to the Jews, but after their refusal to hear the new doctrine He said He had another flock that would hear. Since He was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel, who would this be? Of course, the 10 lost tribes. God said He is the Father of Israel so when we are born again, we come up with the characteristics of the different tribes. There are those born again with the characteristics of Dan as His government as well as those that are resurrected from the watery grave of baptism as the rest of the 10 tribes absorbed into Ephraim with all their individual differences. These chosen by God and reborn through the Word are His body. So, let us look at Dan and his prophecies through his father Jacob.
Let us look at the meaning of Dan, number 1777. 1777 diyn deen or (Gen. 6:3) duwn {doon}; a primitive root [comp.1131; to rule; by impl. to judge (as umpire); also to strive (as at law): - contend, execute (judgment), judge, minister judgment, plead (the cause), at strife, strive. So this would be governmental position.
Now let us look at the prophecy concerning him by his father Jacob.
Genesis 49:16
16 “Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel.
A glance at Moses' blessing on Dan speaks volumes also!
Deuteronomy 33:22
22 And of Dan he said: “Dan is a lion’s whelp (son of the Lion of Judah); he shall leap from Bashan.” (The valley God's mountain rises from!)
The word leap is number 2178 in the Strong's Hebrew dictionary, meaning:
2178 zan zan (Aramaic) corresponding to 2177; sort:--kind.
2177 zan zan from 2109; properly, nourished (or fully developed), i.e. a form or sort:--divers kinds, X all manner of store.
So Dan will emerge from Bashan as a different kind, a new species, nourished and fully developed as the children of God. The Lion of Judah, Yeshua the Judge will sit down in them to judge and govern God's people from spiritual Mount Sion. Please go back and look at the definition of sit. Of course natural Dan, the altered Adamic race is quite the opposite! Through Ephraim God will establish a new society and restore harmony, through Dan, He will restore righteousness to the earth. All will be made new through the children of God. Predestined for this time, born again Dan and Ephraim are rising as one body, the body of Christ. Satan will never sit as god on this mountain or in this city! Sion and New Jerusalem are God's private ground, His living stones. By the way, you that serve the physical Mount Hermon, the figure etched in the rocks is not the face of the mountain goat. It is in fact that of a long horn mountain sheep, a ram! Just a reminder that God owns the earth so He still owns Mount Hermon the mountain of Bashan and all that is on it not of Him will soon perish.
Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 11 total restoration of the earth and in verse 9 he says,
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
God is victor both in the physical and spiritual!
In closing, Jesus gave His life to pay the price for all Adam and Eve turned over to the enemy. He Jubilee'd, set free man, as well as the earth and all creation. All has been legally restored to Father and all is soon to be returned to His children. Let us rejoice as we read this final scripture.
Psalm 115:16
16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men.
