    12. 22. Let’s start with the holy hill

    14. 24. That’s how Ezekiel describes it <ul><li>Ezekiel 28:13-14 NIV You were in Eden, the garden of God … (14) You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God … </li></ul>
    15. 25. What happened in Eden? <ul><li>Genesis 3:23-24 NIV So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden ...

Who may live on your holy hill? </li></ul></ul>

    23. 33. That’s bad news!
    24. 34. Psalm 15:2-3 <ul><li>… who speaks the truth from his heart </li></ul><ul><li>… who … has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman </li></ul>
    25. 35. Are you critical of others?

    29. 39. Psalm 14:2-3 NIV <ul><li>The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. (3) All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. </li></ul>
    30. 40. Have you had a really good day?
    31. 41. Righteousness is not a self-portrait
    32. 42. Psalm 14 & 15 tell us that we’re not ever good enough <ul><li>The answer to the questions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Psalm 15:1 NIV LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“Not I!” and “Not we!” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>So we cry with David </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Psalm 14:7 NIV Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad! </li></ul></ul>
    33. 43. Where we have failed, the holy one in Psalm 16 says … <ul><li>Psalms 16:8-11 NIV I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (9) Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, (10) because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. (11) You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. </li></ul>
    34. 44. He was the high priest <ul><li>Exodus 28:36-38 NIV &quot;Make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it as on a seal: HOLY TO THE LORD. (37) Fasten a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban; it is to be on the front of the turban. (38) … It will be on Aaron's forehead continually so that they will be acceptable to the LORD. </li></ul>
    35. 45. The high priest – the Lord’s holy one <ul><li>So, in answer to our questions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Psalms 15:1 NIV LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The answer is: only the holy one, the high priest </li></ul>
    36. 46. But that’s not the entire answer … <ul><li>The high priests from Aaron to Caiaphas entered the sanctuary in the tabernacle & temple. </li></ul><ul><li>They never entered the true sanctuary; they went into a model. </li></ul><ul><li>That was because they were just copies of the true great High Priest, Jesus Christ. </li></ul><ul><li>Their white robes were just symbols of the spotless life of Jesus Christ, our High Priest. </li></ul><ul><li>He entered not the sanctuary in Jerusalem, he entered heaven, itself. </li></ul>
    37. 47. Psalm 15:1 NIV <ul><li>LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? </li></ul><ul><li>Only the great and true High Priest, Jesus Christ. He entered heaven as High Priest and sits enthroned as King. </li></ul><ul><li>Psalm 2:6 NIV &quot;I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.&quot; </li></ul>
    38. 48. What a relief!
    39. 49. Hebrews 4:14-16 NIV <ul><li>Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. (15) For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. (16) Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. </li></ul>
    40. 50. We can enjoy a confident future because of what Jesus has done
    41. 51. But what if we still feel guilty?
    42. 52. We’ll do the things in Psalm 15 <ul><li>He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart (3) and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, (4) who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, (5) who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. </li></ul>
    43. 53. The final word of Psalm 15 <ul><li>Psalm 15:5 NIV ... He who does these things will never be shaken. </li></ul>
