Sanctuary Services: Why Are Understanding These Important Today? – 5 Essential Bible Truths (3 of 5)
About this video:
This doctrine is one that most people have never heard about. In fact, when they do hear about it they can't see that it has any purpose at all! I realize it's from the Old Testament, but I found it so insightful to investigate because as I looked at it, something actually shocked me. When I learned that God does not forgive sin...that he only forgives sinners...that blew me away!
There’s a big difference between the two! God does not have an eraser where he erases our sins. We studied earlier that the books of deeds are for the recording of our sins; and there's no way that our sins — even though Jesus forgives us — are just erased and forgotten, and then we move along. Many people believe that salvation operates on the big eraser theory. Well, if that was the case, Jesus wouldn’t have needed to come to earth and to have died!
But, for some reason, new Christians don't think this is worth investigating. It just seems too big. But understanding what happens in the temple service really shows God's wonderful righteousness and mercy on sinners. King David wrote in the Psalms “The ways of God are in his temple”. And if you want to understand God's government, if you want to understand his righteousness and his love, you've got to study his sanctuary! God's temple is actually 2 buildings in 1: it's a church and it's a courthouse! God oversees the ultimate church-state. God is Lord of lords, and he is also King of kings. And all of this is designed and put in the temple services; and it’s put there for our benefit. Let me explain....
Wake-up America Seminars is a non-profit / non-prophet organization. We are dedicated solely to proclaiming the imminent return of Jesus Christ. We are not affiliated, endorsed, nor sponsored by any religious organization; we, quite frankly, haven't found one that would have us. This is not a clandestine method of getting you to join a church because Wake-up America seminars is not a church — we have no prisoners (members). We are an organization that is dedicated to education. Our mission is to inspire and encourage people into the Word of God, and what church may mean to you or what church may be to you is something between you and your Lord. Finally, the basis for the views presented in this seminar is limited to the Bible; the only authority that I except for matters in doctrine and spiritual guidance come from the Bible.
