Hebrews 12:18-24; from rejection to blessing

Before meeting Christ we were like Esau, who cared so little for his faith and heritage that he sold his birthright and blessing from Isaac (his dad) for a single meal.  Hebrews 12:17 tells us because of this Esau was “rejected”.  As believers we do not come to that culture of rejection (fire, darkness, gloom, whirlwind, trumpet blasts and loud words), but to “Mount Zion, the city of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God …and Jesus” (vss 22-24).  All this to say that our new spiritual identity in Christ includes spiritual goodness and peace and power in and from the heavenlies.
