Sanctuary Services Parallel
services in the earthly temple give us a
shadow of the services that take place in heavens
temple. We see these services being performed
throughout the book of Revelation. It was very
important to know why God insisted Moses make the
temple according to a pattern.
8:1-2) The point of what we are saying
is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat
down at the right hand of the throne of the
Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the
sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the
Lord, not by man.
above text indicates that Jesus serves in the true
tabernacle that is located in Heaven. The
author of Hebrews used the word true
tabernacle to contrast the sanctuary in
Heaven with the pseudo tabernacle
that Moses erected on Earth. (Hebrews 8:5) Did
you know that certain processes or ceremonies in
the heavenly tabernacle have direct parallels
with the earthly tabernacle? I like to describe
these parallels as the Heaven-Earth-Linkage-Law.
Activity in the temples of Heaven and Earth are
linked together by law! For example, did you know
that more than fourteen end-time events are
synchronized with special ceremonies in Heavens
temple? The books of Daniel and Revelation are
based on ceremonies in Heavens temple;
therefore, it helps to understand the ceremonies
in Heavens temple to correctly understand
Bible prophecy. The only way to properly
understand the ceremonies that take place in
Heavens temple is to examine the services
that were conducted as a parallel on Earth. This
is why Moses was warned when he was about to
build the tabernacle: See to it you make
everything according to the pattern shown you on
the mountain. (Hebrews 8:5)
how many times in the book of Revelation, that
temple language is used: Revelation 1:12, 2:1,
4:1, 4:2, 4:4, 4:6, 5:2, 5:5, 6:9, 8:2, 8:4,
9:13, 11:2, 11:19, 14:15, 15:2, 15:5, 15:6, 15:8,
16:1, 167, 16:17, 19:5. It is extremely important
to know these events and what they represent.
Feasts that are included in the temple services
and are shadows of things to come.
Colossians 2:17). Notice the end-time parallels.
First Passover Gods people were
miraculously delivered from slavery.
Parallel (ETP) Gods people will be
sealed and then physically delivered from the
bondage of mortality.
First Passover Everyone in Egypt was
notified that the firstborn (man or beast) had
been placed under the curse of death. This
announcement produced two groups of people:
believers and unbelievers. The believers put
blood on their doorposts.
The inhabitants of the world will be
notified they are under a curse of death. There
will be two groups of people: believers and
unbelievers. The believers accept Christs
atonement and will obey the message that the
144,000 will proclaim.
First Passover God kept His covenant with
Abraham and took Abrahams descendants to
the Promised Land.
Jesus will keep His promise and return to
Earth at the appointed time. He will take the
saints to the Promised Land, that is,
the Earth made new.
First Passover There was a Sabbath rest
test in Egypt and persecution before the Exodus.
There will be a Sabbath rest test and
persecution for the inhabitants of Earth before
the great Exodus of the saints at the Second
First Passover God passed over
every house in Egypt and He checked the door
posts of every house to see who believed His
God will pass over every human
being and save each person who believes His word.
First Passover - God sent ten plagues upon a
God will send 14 plagues upon a defiant
Earth during the Great Tribulation (seven first
plagues called seven trumpets and seven last
plagues called seven bowls).
First Passover God destroyed Pharaoh and
his army with water.
God will destroy the Antichrist and his
armies with fire.
Passover is an end-time parallel of Gods
judgment of man. The judgment of mankind is a
topic of utmost importance and yet, few people
know anything about it.
number 6 leaves us with Conclusion
Jesus is now serving as our high
priest in the heavenly sanctuary. The spring
feasts have all been fulfilled as
shadows of things that have already happened. The
fall feasts have yet to be fulfilled, the next
being the feast of trumpets which will serve the
same purpose as the temple, resounding the soon
coming of the Day of Atonement to get right with
God before Jesus return. Because the feast
of trumpets begin in the fall of the year, we can
safely conclude the trumpets will sound in the
. Is this the 6,000th autumn?
Next autumn? The window is closing rapidly.
