Light from the Sanctuary (Qtr 2 - Week 8: 25 May)

2024 Qtr 2 Wk 8 Light from the Sanctuary.jpg
Key Text: “We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man” (Hebrews 8:1, 2, NKJV).

Shortly after the disappointment of October 22, 1844, some of the Millerites came to understand that the 2,300-day prophecy didn’t deal with the second coming of Jesus but with Christ’s work inthe heavenly sanctuary.

The cleansing of the sanctuary in heaven was the fulfillment of the earthly cleansing of the earthly sanctuary. To understand this important truth better, look at the parallel between Daniel 7 and Daniel 8:

Daniel 7
Babylon
Media-Persia
Greece
Rome
Judgment in heaven

Daniel 8
------
Media-Persia
Greece
Rome
Cleansing of the sanctuary

These parallels show the nature of the cleansing of the sanctuary, the pre-Advent judgment. This week we explore Christ’s ministry in heaven.

Thought questions: How does Christ’s death on the cross relate to His intercession inthe heavenly sanctuary, and why is the judgment so necessary to the plan of salvation?
