The Sanctuary Message

The following sanctuary message study you about to read is not only a truly amazing study, but also a journey. A journey through the plan of salvation, and an attempt by the ANTICHRIST to cast down and destroy this amazing Bible truth. But God is triumphant in all things and He has now restored His sanctuary message.

You will not hear the sanctuary message in the majority of churches today, because Satan, through that 'mother of harlots', the Papal Church of Rome, has cast it down and trampled upon it and turned the masses away from this amazing Bible truth. But God now restored this message through His remnant church. This study is of great importance and I humbly ask that you come before God in prayer before reading through this page and ask God to guide you in His truth.

Psalm 77:13 ...'Thy way O God is in the sanctuary.'

The great battle between good and evil started in heaven with Satan (originally known as Lucifer). Lucifer wasn't satisfied with his already lofty position in God's kingdom and wanted to 'be like the most High' (Ezekiel 28:13-18). Part of the origin of this controversy was the fact that Lucifer was jealous of God's Son Jesus, and would not accept the authority of Christ over him. You can read more about this on our page THE ORIGIN OF SIN. Because of this great sin against God, Lucifer (Satan) was cast out the kingdom of God. (From here we will refer to Lucifer as Satan). Satan then succeeds in deceiving Adam and Eve into disobeying God by eating of the tree that God told them not to eat from. So God in His mercy gives man second chance and reveals His great plan of salvation to lead man back to Him.

That plan of salvation is amazingly revealed through the Old Testament sanctuary, which as Hebrews 8:4-5 and Hebrews 9:24 says, is a copy of the original sanctuary in heaven itself, where God dwells ... "I believe the Sanctuary, to be cleansed at the end of the 2300 days, is the New Jerusalem Temple, of which Christ is a minister." (E.White, A Word to the Little Flock p. 13). The purpose of the 'copy', the sanctuary on earth was to do for the sinner, and through it, lead man back into the presence of God.

Exodus 25:8

God wants to dwell with us, and the sanctuary message reveals the way back to God's presence, through Christ.

God's Plan in the Sanctuary

Exodus chapter 25-30 lays out the earthly sanctuary, which consists of the other court with the altar of burn offering and the laver of water. Then the first room is the holy place with the table of shewbread, the seven branch candlestick and the altar of incense. And the second room is the most holy place with the ark of the covenant, which contains the ten Commandments.

Now many Christians just see the sanctuary and it's furniture as a part of Old Testament law that is no longer relevant to us. And yet they are missing the great spiritual aspect of the sanctuary and the great salvational plan that God has revealed through it. The sanctuary and it's furniture represents much more than just pieces of furniture used in the Old Testament. God has given us a message through it and has revealed His great plan to draw man back to Him.

The outer court around the sanctuary represents this earth where Christ Jesus came to take the penalty for our sin and be our sacrifice. The altar of burnt offering (sacrifice) where the animal sacrifice for sin would be slain, represents Christ on the cross. He is the "Lamb", our sacrifice. The lavar of water where the priest would need to be "washed" represents baptism (by full eemerson - Matthew 3:16). Then we move from the courtyard which represents the earth, into the sanctuary building which represents God's kingdom. In the first room, the holy place, the table of shewbread represents the Word of God, the true bread of life (Matthew 4:4; John 6:35). The seven branch candlestick represents the light of Christ shining through His people, witnessing (Matthew 5:16), and the altar of incense representing the prayers of believers that are offered through Christ Jesus (Revelation 8:3-4). Finally, we have the most holy place with the ark of the covenant, which contains the great moral law of God, the ten Commandments.

Note: If you draw a plan of the sanctuary and draw a line connecting the furniture, you will end up with the shape of a cross! The reason being that Christ Jesus is at the center of the sanctuary. As He is the only One who can lead us back to God the Father.

Can you see the plan of salvation and the Christian walk in the sanctuary? It's such a beautiful picture! First, as sinners we need to confess our sins over the 'lamb' that was to be slain, which points to Christ and accept His sacrifice for our sins (altar of sacrifice), which then leads to baptism by full emersion (lavar of water), as a symbol of being 'washed' clean. Then, as a truly converted Christian we will study (eat) the Word of God (bread of life) in the Bible each day (table of shewbread). Our prayers will rise everyday to God (altar of incense), and the light of the gospel of Christ will shine to the world through our witness (candlestick). This leads us to God and He writes His law upon our hearts and we become a commandment keeping people (most holy place with the ark of covenant containing the ten Commandments).
These types and symbols in the Old Testament sanctuary service was to teach the world the seriousness of sin (sacrifice of the lamb) and the work that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was to do for us, as our sacrifice and then High Priest in the 'true tabernacle' that 'the Lord pitched' in heaven.


Hebrews 8:2. John 14:6).

The types and symbols laid out in the earthly sanctuary was 'the way' to the Father. But they were types and symbols that pointed to Christ. He is our sacrifice, our life giving water, our bread of life, and our Mediator with the Father. This is the amazing plan of salvation that the sanctuary message reveals. It is God's plan of bringing lost man back to Him, through His Son.

Psalm 77:13

God even reveals this plan of salvation through Israel's exodus and journey through the desert. First, while they were still in Egypt, they were told by God to sacrifice a lamb and put the blood on the door posts at the passover in Exodus 12 (Altar of sacrifice - Christ on the cross). Then after they came out of Egypt, they passed through the Red Sea in Exodus 14 (Lavar of Water - Baptism). Then in the desert in Exodus 16, God sent down "manna" from heaven for them to eat (Table of Shewbread - Word of God). Then in Exodus 19, God told the Jews that if they obeyed His commands, they would be a "holy nation" and would be a light to the rest of the world, witnessing for God to other nations (Seven Branch Candlesticks - witnessing). God also tells the Jews in Exodus 19 they must prepare themselves for three days, for He was about to descend upon the Mount Sinai (Altar of Incense - Prayer). THEN WHAT HAPPENS? THEY RECEIVE THE LAW OF GOD in Exodus 20 (Ark of the Covenant - Ten Commandments). And the order of events is in line with the order of the sanctuary furniture. God's great plan of salvation!

Note: All this happened BEFORE the Jews entered the promised land, which is a lesson for us today.
