Sabbath: Lessons From the Sanctuary — 6 Comments

  1. The love that God has for falling being can not be quantify, if not this love He could have wipe out the entire human race but yet He decided to dwell with men. I have hope that one day we shall see Him.

  2. Exodus 25:8 has given me a new insight. The phrase "that I may dwell among them" is so significant to me in a special way. You see I'm in training presently in medical missionary work, and "Christ Method" that we follow to give us true success starts with "the Savior mingled with men." Do you see the similarity? On top of that check this SOP quote: "Devise methods to reach the people where they are—Let every worker in the Master’s vineyard, study, plan, devise methods, to reach the people where they are. We must do something out of the common course of things. We must arrest the attention. We must be deadly in earnest. We are on the very verge of times of trouble and perplexities that are scarcely dreamed of.—Evangelism, 122, 123. – {PaM 117.2}. Isn't this a powerful?

    • Beautiful. "...beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Romans 10:15b

    • Thank you for sharing, Ferdi. God will bless your efforts as you follow the methods of Christ. You will have the angels and the Holy Spirit to guide you as you determine the best ways to follow Christ's methods.

  3. Indeed, the sanctuary is the device that teach the meaning of the Gospel. If take time study the symbols used, we will surely acknowledge the beauty the come out that.
    God really wanted His people to fully comprehend Him fully and make them realize how offensive sin to Him and how He also desired to their God in their fallen state.
    The sanctuary also brings to people's understanding how sin and the instigator of sin will finally one be eradicated in the typical great day of atonement.
    Beautiful lesson indeed that should makes us realize how we ought to live in these last days.
    God is calling us to reestablish our relationship with Him while our probation still lasts.
    Wish you all Happy Sabbath.

  4. Christ became the ultimate sacrifice on the cross for us and this generation is no better off than the children of Israel in the wilderness for despite God's presence in their midst they chose to follow after other gods.let the cross remind us of His undying love, His omnipresence, His love, all we have to do is to sacrifice our hearts and let Him dwell in us and He is Emmauel God with Us.the sanctuary can not co exist with sin hence we need to rid ourselves of sin amongst us and surrender our everything to Him and come before without fear because he bore it all
