Download Notes

That the sanctuary of the new covenant
(Hebrews 12:24)

is the tabernacle of God in heaven,
(Psalms 102:19)

of which Paul speaks in Hebrews 8 and onward, and of which our Lord, as a great high priest, is minister; that this sanctuary is the antitype of the Mosaic tabernacle, and that the priestly work of our Lord, connected therewith, is the antitype of the work of the Jewish priests of the former dispensation (Heb. 8:1-5, etc.);
(Hebrews 8:1-5)

that this, and not the earth, is the sanctuary to be cleansed at the end of the two thousand and three hundred days, what is termed its cleansing being in this case, as in the type, simply the entrance of the high priest into the most holy place, to finish the round of service-connected therewith, by making the atonement and removing from the sanctuary the sins which had been
transferred to it by means of the ministration in the first apartment (Lev. 16; Heb. 9:22, 23);
(Leviticus 16; Hebrews 9:22-23)

and that this work in the antitype, beginning in 1844,
(Daniel 8:14)

consists in actually blotting out the sins of believers (Acts 3:19),
(Acts 3:19)

and occupies a brief but indefinite space of time,
(Revelation 15:5-8)

at the conclusion of which the work of mercy for the world will be finished, and the second advent of Christ will take place.
(Revelation 16)
