The Secret Hidden In The Sanctuary

2024-01-18 02:41

God gave the two parts in the bible: the Old Testament and the New Testament. The purpose of the old covenant is given as copy and shadow for the things to come in the new covenant, which is the reality.

Hebrews 10:1 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.

The law, which is the old covenant or the Law of Moses, was the copy for the things to come, which is the new covenant or the Law of Christ. In this sense, the old covenant is the parable for the new covenant. The old covenant was given to teach us about the new covenant, which is the reality.

One of the laws in the old covenant was the law about the sanctuary or the temple, which was later established by King Solomon. Then what is the reality of the temple and how can we know about it? 2000 years ago, Jesus says that he came to reveal hidden things since the creation of the world.

Matthew 13:34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”

Therefore, to find the reality of the things in the old covenant we must listen to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Then what is the reality of the temple in the old covenant? When we look at the temple, it is composed of two separate room, the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. And the two rooms are separated by a curtain placed between them. Then what are the realities? Let us find one by one.

First, what is the reality of the temple? Let us look at the bible to find the answer.

Revelation 21:22 I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

Ezekiel 11:16 “Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.’

The reality of the temple or the sanctuary is God himself. However, God is Elohim and they are God the Father and God the Mother. That is the reason the temple was divided into two separate rooms. And the bible teaches the Holy Place and the curtain which separated the rooms represent Christ Jesus or God the Father.

John 2:19  Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” 20 They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body. 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body.

If the first room and the curtain represent God the Father, then what does the second room of the temple represent? It is God the Mother. To find out this, first we should know the structure of the Most Holy Place of the temple. The earthly temple was a copy for the reality of the temple in heaven. (Hebrews 8:5) Therefore, to know the invisible heavenly temple, we have to first know the earthly temple. The Most Holy Place or the inner room of the sanctuary was in the shape of a cube. (1 Kings 6:20)

Then what is the reality of the Most Holy Place shown in the early temple? In the Book of Revelation, Apostle John saw the heavenly temple, which is the reality of the Most Holy Place. He saw the heavenly temple New Jerusalem coming from heaven. And the temple has one conspicuous feature that the length, height, and depth of the temple is the same, which means it is in the shape of the cube. This means that the heavenly New Jerusalem is the reality of the Most Holy Place of the temple.

Then who is the Heavenly Jerusalem? Apostle Paul also testifies about the heavenly Jerusalem and he let us know what she is to us.

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

The Jerusalem above means the Heavenly Jerusalem, which is our Mother. The reality of the Most Holy Place is God the Mother. God Elohim was the reality of the Temple. God the Father signifies the Holy Place and God the Mother the Most Holy Place.

    The reality of the sanctuary in the Old Testament era represents God as a person who will appear in the New Testament era. God showed through the sanctuary of the Old Testament that there is forgiveness of all sins and the blessing of eternal life in Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother

    We are thankful for the grace of God who freely forgives us without asking for our rebellious sins.
    In reality, I deeply engrave in my heart that this is the grace of God who suffered all these sins on the cross and became the sacrifice of all the seasons, bearing our sins and forgiving them. It is natural that our goal is to receive forgiveness for our indelible sins and reach eternal heaven, but the sacrifice and love of God the Father and God the Mother are not natural.
    Rather than believing in God and seeking His grace for our own purposes, we just want to quickly reach the heaven that our Father and Mother have prepared and granted us. I sincerely hope that you will truly realize and feel in your heart the supreme love and grace of God who observes God's feast days with all your heart and sacrifices himself for your children.

    In the Old Testament, when the Israelites became unclean, they performed a ritual of making lye using the ashes of burning a heifer and sprinkling it on the third and seventh days. The lye water from the heifer is meant to wash away the uncleanness of the Israelites.
    If an unclean person did not purify himself with this lye, he was cut off from among the Israelites.
    The blessings of purity promised on the 3rd and 7th days continue into the three-day worship and Sabbath that we observe today.
    Thanks to Christ's sacrifice, every time the countless Israelites committed a sin, countless animals shed their blood and were burned in the fire of the burnt offering altar as payment for their sins.
    The animal offered as a sacrifice to wash away sins represents Christ, who took on our sins and sacrificed himself in the New Testament era.
