Here is my little contemplation from some unearthly hour last night.

We all know the statement, but Why is this the case?

The Sanctuary

So we had to work back late at work this evening because of stock take. While we were going around doing the scan one of my colleagues was quizzing me on what why I believe what I do. He ended up getting me to explain the Sanctuary to him. It was actually very interesting as he repeated back what i was saying and simplified it very clearly which was rather startling.

As SDA’s we believe that the Feast of Yom Kippur, Also known as the day of Atonement or the Cleansing of the Sanctuary has been underway since Oct 22 1844.

And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Dan 8:14)

That the sins of those who accept Christ by faith are transferred buy merit of his blood to the sanctuary and the record of them is on/against the veil that hangs between the Holy and Most Holy Place. Since 1844 Christ has commenced the work of removing the record of those sins and he will not return until the last Christian’s character is perfected and his Sins are blotted out.

My colleague described the matter along the lines of “So Jesus is cleaning the curtains in heaven and you guys are still messing them up, and he can’t come back until you stop making them dirty.”

 Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own.  {COL 69.1} 

It was fascinating to see someone who doesn’t profess any flavor of Christianity grasp a concept that so many other Christians fail to understand.
