Friday: Further Study: The Heavenly Sanctuary — 4 Comments

  1. when paul said the eye have not seen it neither the ears hear it it really shows that we must not lose our salvation because of worldly richies ; infact what thing is good here on earth is just but dug as compared to what heaven have in store for us. lawrence mupatsi bulawayo pelandaba church

  2. I thank God for this quarter's lesson. Please shed some light about the truths in the earthly sanctuary and how they are linked to our salvation

  3. Adding to the last question: What does it say about God when He allows His creation to judge what He has already judged. What does it mean when Paul says, “Do you not know that we shall judge angels?” (1 Cor 6:3 NKJV) or that heavenly beings are judging us in the investigative judgment? Who is everybody actually judging and why does God allow it?

    • Both Daniel and John state that judgment was given to the saints, or the resurrected ones (Dan. 7:22; Rev. 20:4). In Revelation 20 the word "judgment" is from the Greek word krima, which generally means "sentence," "verdict," or "a decision rendered." Here krima seems to mean the authority to pass sentence. The passage does not refer to a verdict in favor of the righteous. In the Septuagint of Daniel, the word for "judgment" is krisis, the "act of judging"; but in the Theodotion Greek version it is rendered krima. The work of judgment referred to by the revelator is doubtless that spoken of by the apostle Paul: "Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? . . . Know ye not that we shall judge angels?" (1 Cor. 6:2, 3). The work of judgment may well involve a careful investigation of the records of evil men and a decision regarding the amount of punishment due each sinner for his part in the rebellion against God.
