Sanctuary


Journey Through the Sanctuary

 

Today I would like to take a different approach as I talk about the sanctuary. I want to take you on a journey through it. To me it's like a treasure map to the greatest treasure anyone can ever find. So today I'd like to take you on a personal journey through the sanctuary. As we travel, please remember this is an allegory, not a theological exposition. What I want to share is how this doctrine affects us in a very personal way. So let's begin the journey.  Read More >>

Journey Through the Sanctuary

Is the Investigative Judgment Biblical

 

The investigative judgment is one of the most contested doctrines of the Adventist church. Some claim we have no Biblical bases for this belief. Pause for a moment to read this challenge: - "I am puzzled that something such as the Investigative Judgment, that is suppose to share equal billing with the Christ Events, does not have any clear declarative exposition as to its existence by any New Testament writer. . . "  Read More >>

Is the Investigative Judgment Biblical

Reasons for an Investigation

 

The question is often asked, "Why do you believe in an Investigative Judgement?" As we read the Bible, we see plainly that it tells us judgment is certain. "God will judge his people". (Heb. 10:30) Some will be judged and awarded everlasting life, others will be judged and sentenced to everlasting destruction. (See John 5:28,29) Will God execute judgment without an investigation or trial?  Read More >>

Understanding the Investigative Judgment

 

"I beheld," says the prophet Daniel, "till thrones were placed, and One that was Ancient of Days did sit: His raiment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like pure wool; His throne was fiery flames, and the wheels thereof burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened." Daniel 7:9, 10, R.V.  Read More >>

Christ's Ministry in the Heavenly Sanctuary

 

God instructed Moses to build as His earthly dwelling place (Ex. 25:8) the first sanctuary that functioned under the first (old) covenant (Heb. 9:1). This was a place where people were taught the way of salvation. The New Testament reveals that the new covenant also has a sanctuary, one that is in heaven. In it Christ functions as high priest "at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty." This sanctuary is the "true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man" (Heb. 8:1, 2).  Read More >>

The Atonement

 

Amazing thought is the atonement. God wants to be at-one with us! He longs for intimate fellowship with us. Like Enoch, who walked with God, till God took him home then and there to continue that walking and talking for eternity. "Before his translation Enoch had the record that he pleased God" Heb. 11:5. He made God happy!  He met the heart need of the Infinite One,  and there are many Enochs today!  (COL 332)  Read More >>

The Atonement

Q & A on Atonement

 

Question by one speaking against our belief: - "Why do you believe in more than one atonement? Do you not know the atonement was completed at the cross?" Answer: - Christ has made atonement for sin. The full and complete provisions for that atonement He provided at the cross. Christ's sacrifice was once and for all, totally sufficient. Jesus, as our high Priest is now applying that atonement to those who come to Him with contrite and humble hearts, surrendering their lives to Him.  Read More >>

Sin Transfer in the Sanctuary

 

We often hear the argument that sin was taken care of at the altar of sacrifice and all the priest had to do was present the blood before the mercy seat as proof that the penalty was paid and the sins blotted out. They say sins were never transferred anywhere. Yet is this the Biblical presentation? We will see that indeed, the priests transfer the sins of the penitant into the sanctuary. Then, on the day of atonement, when the sanctuary is cleansed, the sins are once again transferred . . .  Read More >>

Q & A on Cleansing of the Sanctuary

 

Question: - Most scholars regard the Bible as ordinary literature, not inspired by God. What basis have we for taking it as a day for a year? Answer: - Read Dan 8:26. It says, "The vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true, therefore seal up the vision, For it refers to many days in the future." In this way the angel stresses the importance of the 2300 days riddle, helping us to see how God regards it. The "many days in the future" implies the day-year principle, for 2300 literal days would be less than six and a half years, and there would be no point in sealing a vision for such a short time.  Read More >>

The Shut Door

 

Revelation 3:7-8 - "To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens and no man shuts, and shuts and no man opens...Behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it." People have often questioned us concerning the "shut door question". Why was there a "shut door" and did we then change it back to an "open door". However, as the text above shows, the shut door and open door is very Biblical!  Read More >>
