1 The Sanctuary in The Wilderness Lay Evg. BC Sono

2 The Sanctuary Ellen G. White Estate, Devotional for September 13 Visit us at Close of Probation Passes Unnoticed “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” 1 Thess. 5:1, 2 The righteous and the wicked will still be living upon the earth in their mortal state--- --men will be planting and building, eating and drinking, all unconscious that the final, irrevocable decision has been pronounced in the sanctuary above. Before the flood, after Noah entered the ark, God shut him in, and shut the ungodly out; but for seven days the people, knowing not that their doom was fixed, continued their careless, pleasure-loving life, and mocked the warnings of impending judgment. Lay Evg. BC Sono

3 The Sanctuary Then those who have despised God's word, those who have lightly esteemed it, shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east; they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord and shall not find it.... The ministers of God will have done their last work, offered their last prayers, shed their last bitter tear for a rebellious church and an ungodly people. Silently, unnoticed as the midnight thief, will come the decisive hour which marks the fixing of every man's destiny, the final withdrawal of mercy's offer to guilty men. The people are fast being lulled to a fatal security, to be awakened only by the outpouring of the wrath of God. The Lord in judgment will at the close of time walk through the earth, the fearful plagues will begin to fall. Lay Evg. BC Sono

4 The Sanctuary The sun is fast westering. Can it be that it will set and thou wilt not know "the things which belong unto thy peace!"? Must the irrevocable sentence be passed, "But now they are hid from thine eyes" ( Luke 19:42 )? Revelation 22:11 Amos 8:11 From Maranatha - Page 264 The eye of Jesus, looking down the ages, was fixed upon our time when He said, "If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace!" It is still thy day, O church of God, whom He has made the depositary of His law. This day of trust and probation is drawing to a close. Lay Evg. BC Sono

5 The Sanctuary The Correct Understanding of the Sanctuary, By EG White quote. Psa 77:13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? “The subject of the sanctuary and the investigative judgment should be clearly understood by the people of God.” Great Controversy, Ellen G White “Facing Life’s Record” Lay Evg. BC Sono

6 The Sanctuary THEY PRAYED, HE FELT ASSURED THAT LIGHT WOULD COME. A LITTLE LATER, AS EDSON AND A FRIEND WERE CROSSING A CORNFIELD TO VISIT FELLOW ADVENTISTS, IT SEEMED AS IF A HAND TOUCHED HIS SHOULDER. HE LOOKED UP TO SEE - AS IF IN A VISION - THE HEAVENS OPENED, AND CHRIST IN THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY ENTERING INTO THE MOST HOLY PLACE, THERE TO BEGIN A WORK OF MINISTRY IN BEHALF OF HIS PEOPLE, INSTEAD OF COMING FORTH FROM THE MOST HOLY PLACE TO CLEANSE THE WORLD WITH FIRE, AS THEY HAD TAUGHT. CAREFUL BIBLE STUDY BY HIRAM EDSON; F. B. HAHN, A PHYSICIAN; AND O. R. L. CROZIER, A SCHOOLTEACHER, SOON REVEALED THAT THE SANCTUARY TO BE CLEANSED AT THE END OF THE 2300 YEARS WAS NOT THE EARTH BUT THE TABERNACLE IN HEAVEN, WITH CHRIST MINISTERING IN OUR BEHALF IN THE MOST HOLY PLACE. HIRAM EDSON, ONE OF THIS GROUP, LIVED IN CENTRAL NEW YORK STATE AT PORT GIBSON. HE WAS THE LEADER OF THE ADVENTISTS IN THAT AREA. THE BELIEVERS MET IN HIS HOME ON OCTOBER 22, 1844, TO AWAIT THE COMING OF THE LORD. CALMLY AND PATIENTLY THEY AWAITED THE GREAT EVENT. BUT AS THE HOUR OF MIDNIGHT CAME AND THEY REALIZED THE DAY OF EXPECTATION HAD PASSED, IT BECAME CLEAR THAT JESUS WOULD NOT COME AS SOON AS THEY HAD THOUGHT. IT WAS A TIME OF BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT. IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS HIRAM EDSON AND A FEW OTHERS WENT OUT TO HIS BARN TO PRAY, AND AS OCTOBER 22, 1844 Lay Evg. BC Sono

7 The Sanctuary The Sanctuary consists of three parts:  The Courtyard  The Holy Place  Most Holy Place

8 Lay Evg. BC Sono

9 The Sanctuary Dan 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. Lay Evg. BC Sono

10 The Sanctuary There Are at least 5 stages found in Sanctuary: 1.In the camp—Where Jesus has lived the life we should, Never sinned, Hebrews 4:15 2.The Court----Alter of Sacrifice (Jesus Died). 3.Laver---Resembles Baptism and Our Cleansing. Titus 3:5 4.The Holy place (Candle Stick & the Table of Shewbread). 5.The Most Holy Place and the present truth. Lay Evg. BC Sono

11 Most holy place or second apartment First apartment or The Holy place First apartment or The Holy place Ark of the Covenant Menorah Alter of incense Veil Table of Shewbread This is Gods dwelling place Lay Evg. BC Sono

12 The Sanctuary The Table of Shewbread. Two stacks of six loaves of unleavened bread were upon the table. The number twelve represented the number of tribes in the encampment. The priests would eat this bread once a week. The Holy Place contained three pieces of furniture:  The Table of Shewbread  The Altar of Incense The Seven-Branched Candlestick Lay Evg. BC Sono

13 The Sanctuary The Courtyard has two pieces of furniture: The Altar of Burnt Sacrifice The Lavar The Altar of Burnt Sacrifice.  This is where the sacrifices were offered. The Lavar.  This is where some of the sacrifices were washed and where the priests had to wash themselves before entering the Holy Place. Lay Evg. BC Sono

14 The Sanctuary The Altar of Incense. Incense was to continually burn upon this altar and its smoke would ascend over the veil into the Most Holy Place. The Seven-Branched Candlestick. This was to shed light continually in the Holy Place. The candles were always burning. The Most Holy Place contained one piece of furniture: The Ark of the Covenant. Lay Evg. BC Sono

15 The Sanctuary The Ark of the Covenant. This piece of furniture was made of two pieces. The Ark, which is the box, and the Mercy seat, which is the cover. The Mercy seat is where the presence of God dwelt. Within the Ark were three items:  The Ten Commandments,  Pot of manna  Aaron’s rod. Manna = the Provision of God Rod = the Authority of God Tables = the Demands of God Lay Evg. BC Sono

16 The Sanctuary A. How does the earthly sanctuary help us understand the plan of salvation? The earthly sanctuary was established to represent God’s plan of salvation and pointed to the heavenly sanctuary and the ministry of Jesus in heaven Lay Evg. BC Sono

17 Heb9:22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. The Sanctuary Lay Evg. BC Sono

18 The Sanctuary MORNING AND EVENING SACRIFICES (Exodus 29:38-42) It symbolized “their daily constant dependence upon the atoning blood of Christ.” (EGW, PP, p. 52) The Plan Of Salvation SANCTUARY SYMBOLS AND ITS MEANINGS o Morning & Evening Sacrifices Showbread and candlestick o The Day of Atonement ceremonies o The High Priest garments JESUS IS THE LAMB OF GOD Lay Evg. BC Sono

19 The Sanctuary “Both the manna and the Shewbread pointed to Christ, the Living Bread.” (EGW, PP. p. 354) John 6:33,35,48,51 - Jesus is the bread of life & Matt 4:4 The word of God SHEWBREAD AND CANDLESTICK (Exodus 25:23, 30, 31) Also represented the Seven Churches that Christ has to go fill up With the Holy Spirit to keep The churches fueled up with the anointing power to shine for Jesus. Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. JESUS IS THE LIVING BREAD & LIGHT OF THE WORLD

20 The Sanctuary Christ our Intercessor Rev 5:8 Our Prayers = Incense JESUS IS THE LIVING BREAD & LIGHT OF THE WORLD

21 The Sanctuary The Presence of God, None enters except the High Priest and him only once a year with sacrifices Manna = the Provision of God Rod = the Authority of God Tables = the Demands of God JESUS IS THE LIVING BREAD & LIGHT OF THE WORLD

22 The Sanctuary It represents Christ’s priestly ministry Sinners and God be reconciled, two goats lambs were needed, one for Jesus who symbolically died to cleanse the world from sin and the other for the Devil, who when the penitent sinner repents, the sins are transferred to that scapegoat and was not killed but left for abandonment to die symbolically Satan’s punishment for all he did. DAY OF ATONEMENT CEREMONIES (Leviticus 16)

23 The Sanctuary THE HIGH PRIESTLY GARMENTS (Exodus 28:6-21) “That as Christ pleads His blood before the Father, He bears upon His heart the name of every repentant believing soul.” (Roy Adams, The Sanctuary, p. 38 )

24 The Sanctuary By understanding the plan of salvation By accepting Christ’s intercession for us in heaven “The subject of the sanctuary was the key which unlocked the mystery of the disappointment of It opened to view a complete system of truth, connected and harmonious, showing that God’s hand had directed the great Advent Movement, and revealing present duty as it brought to light the position and work of His people.” (EGW, Great Controversy, p. 423). Lay Evg. BC Sono

25 The Sanctuary The New Covenant o Christ our Mediator o Christ our High Priest o All Believers are priests, male and female, o from every tribe, tongue, language & people o No Earthly Sanctuary o Our bodies = the temple of the Holy Spirit The Heavenly Sanctuary o Not made with hands, not of this creation o Heaven Itself o The Presence of God The Old Covenant  Moses the Mediator  Aaron the High Priest  Many Levitical Priests  Had regulations of divine worship  Had the Earthly Sanctuary The Earthly Sanctuary Heavenly  The Outer Tabernacle: the Holy Place  The Inner Tabernacle: The Holy of Holies What is happening NOW? Lay Evg. BC Sono

26 The Sanctuary The priests entered into the earthly with the blood of an animal as an offering for sin. Christ entered into the heavenly sanctuary by the offering of His own blood. The earthly priests were removed by death; therefore they could not continue long; but Jesus was a priest forever. EW.pg 96 The veil was lifted, and I looked into the holy of holies and saw that the furniture was the same as in the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary. The priest ministered in both apartments of the earthly. He went daily into the first apartment, but entered the most holy only once a year, to cleanse it from the sins which had been conveyed there. I saw that Jesus ministered in both apartments of the heavenly sanctuary. EW.pg 66 Similarities Lay Evg. BC Sono

27 The Sanctuary Lev 16:29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: Lev 16:30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. What matters is to vindicate the character of God without reference of reward. That’s what Moses and God agreed upon, whether or not I walk on the street of gold, but reprove that Satan’s claims were never true, the false-accusations that Satan’s made. It’s all or nothing, it’s God who’s vindicating His character and not us. That is the Most important existence of the SDA church. Lay Evg. BC Sono

28 The Sanctuary Eze 4:6 “……I have appointed thee each day for a year.” PROPHECY KEY UNLOCKED So 2300 days is = 2300 literal years Lay Evg. BC Sono

30 The Sanctuary

31 Mar 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. Mar 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. Mat 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. Mat 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; Lay Evg. BC Sono

32 The Sanctuary

34 The Sanctuary

35 And in the wisdom of God the particulars of this work were given us that we might, by looking to them, understand the work of Jesus in the heavenly sanctuary. As Jesus died on Calvary, He cried, “It is finished,” and the veil of the temple was rent in twain, from the top to the bottom. This was to show that the services of the earthly sanctuary were forever finished, and that God would no more meet with the priests in their earthly temple, to accept their sacrifices. The blood of Jesus was then shed, which was to be offered by Himself in the heavenly sanctuary. As the priest entered the most holy once a year to cleanse the earthly sanctuary, so Jesus entered the most holy of the heavenly, at the end of the 2300 days of Daniel 8, in 1844, to make a final atonement for all who could be benefited by His mediation, and thus to cleanse the sanctuary.
