Sunday: The Heavenly Sanctuary: Part 1 — 1 Comment

  1. I get the feeling when I look at it in detail the layout of the earthly sanctuary in type is the replica of actual heavenly sanctuary built by God’s own hands as it is according to the lesson. There is one entrance into the outer court and in here, the actual sacrifice takes place. Prior to Priest entering the inner court, he washes his hands and feet at Lava. He enters the inner court into the holy compartment where it contains table of show bread, seven candle sticks and alter of incense where the Priest burns a portion of the flesh from sacrificial lamb. He then enters the most holy place to sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat or the Ark of the Covenant.
    The earthly High Priest played the role of Jesus’ role as heavenly High Priest mediating between people and God but more for the benefit of the people that He came and died for. The gospel of salvation is acted out in the sanctuary layout. Bible says (in Isaiah 66:1 & Acts 7:49) that heaven is God's throne and earth is His footstool. In a close view, heaven and earth very much appears in the context of sanctuary. Outer court I see it as earth and inner court as heaven. From inner court, Jesus came out and offered as a sacrificial lamb at outer court and returned to the inner court and now, He is our heavenly High Priest.
    The rituals carried out in the earthly sanctuary and the sanctuary itself wraps up the salvation message for sinners. His first coming fulfilled and type has met the anti-type and the culmination all these is His second coming.
