Hebrews 12:18-24

I asked for a bible passage from the Holy Spirit to help out a specific individual, and was given Hebrews 12:18, which expands to verses 18 to 24:

18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched , and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,  19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

After looking at the passage, I agreed with the Spirit that this passage would definitely help the individual for whom I asked it. 

However, as I re-read it again this morning, I looked a lot more closely, and realized that the Holy Spirit was not included in the list of those waiting for us to come to Mount Sion (Zion).  So what's with that?


"Silly!" The Spirit replied to me, "I'm not up there waiting for you to get up there!

"I'm down here helping you get up there!"

And people wonder why I'm such a fanatic about the Holy Spirit...
