Upward, Into the Promised Land! Part 6: “The Temple Cleansed Again” 

To read Part 1 of “Cleansing the Sanctuary”, click here…MARCH 24 (Upward, Into the Promised Land! Part 2: Cleansing the Sanctuary)

“And he said unto me,

Unto two thousand and three hundred days;

then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.”

Daniel 8:14

This above verse foretells of a time when the sanctuary shall be cleansed.

.

And at the end of the year, the earthly priest entered into the temple of Israel, to cleanse the Most Holy Place.

.

And this was a picture of what Christ, our High Priest will do to His Heavenly Temple in these last days.

“YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD”

.

And just what is today’s unfolding message?

.

It is the revelation that each and every true worshiper of God is part of God’s sanctuary, even as it is written…“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1st Corinthians 3:16

.

Here is a profound truth which reveals that God’s Elect people together make up God’s temple. And because God, our high priest, indwells within the hearts of His people, therefore their heart is an extension of the heavenly Sanctuary and its service.

.

.

.

CLEANSING THE TEMPLE OF HEARTS

.

And so, when God speaks of cleansing the sanctuary, He is also referring to the hearts of His Believers. Oh yes, the cleansing has to do with the true Believers and the false brethren being separated in these last days. But God sits as a purifier of the hearts of His people, purifying them even as gold and silver are purified…by fiery trials.

.

Listen to Malachi 3:2, 3…“But who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth? for He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”

.

Here is a great truth which God is just now revealing to His people. The Bible clearly tells us…“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation…” 1st Peter 2:9

.

.

.

.

.

“GOD…MADE US TO SIT…IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST…”

.

Now it becomes clear just who are the sons of Levi in these last moments of time: The New Testament Believers. And the Bible says…“And(God) hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Ephesians 2:6

.

Now, we know that it is said of Christ…“He ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us…” Hebrews 7:25, 26

.

And having this knowledge of Christ’s ongoing priestly service, it is not difficult to conclude that every Believer shares the priestly duties along with Christ, their great High Priest, who dwells within their hearts!

THE TEMPLE CLEANSED AGAIN

.

Well, Ellen White wrote of the temple being cleanse, in her book, The Desire of Ages, in which she spoke of the events surrounding that cleansing.

An easy way to find Arcturus is to follow the arc of the handle of the Big Dipper, in the spring through fall (these are the months in which Arcturus is visible). 

.

Picture right: constellations span the heavens (Ark in south, 7 Stars in north), and travel from east to west through the night.
