Title: The Sanctuary Service & the Plan of Salvation
Post by: restoretruth on August 23, 2014, 09:43:57 AM
RE the Burnt Offering:

The Patriarchs did not offer daily sacrifices. The Patriarchal system of sacrifices was not the same as the Levitical system instituted by Moses. The one thing in common with the two systems was the Burnt Offering which tied the two systems together. Frank Holbrook explains this well in his textbook “Light in the Shadows, An Overview of the Doctrine of the Sanctuary.”  The book, with its companion book “Walking in the Light, An Overview of the Doctrine of Salvation in Christ,” can be downloaded @

Here is an excerpt:

Fully one-third of the book of Exodus is devoted to the organization and construction of the Israelite sanctuary. But Israel’s national worship is not to be thought of as being an entirely new and different system. Rather, it was a flowering or an elaboration of the ancient religion of the patriarchs.

Two observations confirm this view:

1. Israel at Sinai entered into a covenant relationship with the same God who had made a covenant with their immediate forefathers: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Gen. 17:7-8; Ex. 6:2-8; 19:3-6), and who was earlier worshiped by their ancestors, such as Shem, his father Noah, and the preceding godly line who traced their lineage back to Adam (Gen. 5, 11).

2. The Israelite sanctuary preserved the basic sacrifice of the patriarchal worship. It is significant that the only sacrifice discussed in detail in the book of Exodus (other than the rituals dealing with the consecration of the priests) is the morning and evening sacrifice, more commonly known as “the continual burnt offering.” (See Ex. 29:38-42.)

 This offering was the foundational sacrifice in the Israelite sanctuary system, and the large altar located in the court apparently derived its name from it (Ex. 30:28). The burnt offering was the common sacrifice of the patriarchs. Noah made a burnt offering from every type of clean bird and animal after his release from the ark (Gen. 8:20). Abraham was commanded to offer Isaac as a burnt offering, but eventually was able to offer a ram for “a burnt offering in the stead of his son” (Gen. 22:2-13). Job offered burnt offerings in behalf of his family; his friends also offered burnt offerings for themselves [Job 1:5; 42:8]

Thus, one important aspect of the morning and evening sacrifice—the “continual burnt offering”— made by the priests in the ancient sanctuaries of Israel was that it locked their tabernacle-temple system of worship into the religious life of Israel’s forebears. The basic sacrifice of the patriarchs became the central sacrifice of the Israelite ritual.

In view of these links between patriarchal and Israelite worship, the latter may be viewed as an example of unfolding revelation. In the sanctuary we find a progression in the worship forms that in turn disclosed more fully the purpose and plan of God for the salvation of sinners.

We may infer, therefore, that God saw it was time for His people to be given further insights into the nature of the Deity, the sin problem, and the means by which He would effect reconciliation with man. New light does not nullify old light. The essentials of sacrifice and mediation seen in the patriarchal age in the form of victim and father-priest would now be elaborated upon in a new context— the tabernacle-temple sanctuary, the dwelling place of God (Ex. 25:8, 29:45-46).
It is significant then, that the New Testament book of Hebrews does not view the sanctuary in Jerusalem in apostolic times as presenting the quintessence of the Hebrew faith. Such would have been the case if the worship conducted in Herod’s temple had been considered the end-product of an evolutionary development in Israel’s religion. Instead, for spiritual meaning and understanding, the book of Hebrews centers on the tabernacle constructed in the wilderness. This is to be expected, since the bulk of the data pertaining to the Israelite sanctuary is found in the books of Moses. But it also implies that the Bible writer saw no basic change in the spiritual teaching of the Old Testament religion, whether in patriarchal, tabernacle, or later temple phases. In fact, he asserts that the same God who spoke in Old Testament times to “the fathers” now speaks “unto us by his Son” (Heb. 1:1-2).

The religion of the Old and New Testaments is essentially one.

Today, “every wind of doctrine is blowing”! There are false ideas & theories all around us! If we study & understand the Sanctuary services & Christ's work as our High Priest; if we walk in the Light;  & if we share Christ with others, the Holy Spirit will help us discern truth from error & keep us on the right path!

Imagine this one. Today a friend from another SDA church called and said that since her husband died she has found a friend on the internet. They really hit it off. In only 4 days he ( professedly SDA) proposed having not even personally met her. Red flag #1. Then more recently he said that he has discovered new light. He said that the rock that smote the image is the 144,000. He chastised my friend for being so rigid and not accepting new light when she said he needs to show her from the Bible and SOP. Then he wanted her to buy a video for $80 that is supposed to show how this heresy makes sense. Either the man is in la la land or else he is trying to scam her for money.

Take a moment and think through what the idea that the 144,000 is the rock that smote the image, leads to. Yikes !

I can't think of a false doctrine that would more fully align God's people with Isis than that one.

What about Job ?

Job 1:
4 ¶  And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
5  And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

The rock that smote the feet of the image (the end time kingdoms of Earth involved in mingling church-craft + state-craft) <A.>grows to fill the whole Earth , and <B.>owns a kingdom that never ends.   

The 144,000 are not the One that is the Rock that grows to fill the whole Earth, they do not own that kingdom.  They are not the Shepherd and Bishop of Souls - Jesus is the Rock who smites the church state combining self/Satan  ruling kingdoms and crushes them at the Second Coming and after the 1000 yrs are over, fills the whole New Earth with His rule and teachings.  Then since sin is destroyed turns everything over to Father God.

The whole start of this process began in Eden with cursing the Earth, the snake & Satan, the woman & man, and instituting the sacrificial system, and later the system of passover & the feasts that both symbolized Christ's work in and through the Sanctuary services and lessons.

The 1888 message was built upon the absolutes of the pre existence of Jesus, His Divinity, His incarnation taking humanity into Himself, His battleground of conquering human sin in the mind & flesh, His victory over human sin and His victorious righteousness.

Scripture tells of His preexistence .   The Passover Lamb tells of His dual natures.  ....... continued after Church...... 
Exodus 12:
1 ¶  And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
2  This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
3  Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
4  And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
6  And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
7  And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
8  And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
10  And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
11  And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover.
12  For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
13  And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 17:11  For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

Deuteronomy 12:23  Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.

John 6:53  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

John 6:54  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 5:26  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
The blood the symbol of eternal immortal indwelling life beyond human life, which could die, and all the internal organs and unbroken bones remained in the typical passover lamb, the symbol of Jesus Christ the Coming Messiah.
