As our High Priest, Jesus gives us the power to live right in the present and in the future. A A What six sublime promises does the Bible give us about the righteousness offered to us through Jesus? The sprinkled blood (representing Jesus' sacrifice) was accepted by God, and the confessed sins of the people were transferred from the sanctuary to the high priest.

A A Does the Bible give specific information regarding the nearness of Christ's second coming?

Lucifer is symbolized by the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14 and as the king of Tyrus in Ezekiel 28.
Jesus' key aim in life was to demonstrate His Father's character in His own life so people would know how loving, warm, and caring the Father really is (John 5:19).
He knows thinking people reject monsters as fable and so will be led to deny his existence. The walls were made of upright acacia (wooden) boards, set in silver sockets and overlaid with gold (Exodus 26:15-19, 29).
The Bible teaches that everything in the sanctuary or connected with its service was a symbol of something Jesus would do in saving us. They were a copy of the original sanctuary in heaven, which was the pattern for Moses' sanctuary. The laver, located between the altar and the entrance of the sanctuary, was a large washbasin made of brass.
Jesus' death as our sacrificial lamb and substitute, and His continual powerful ministry as our heavenly Priest, accomplish two incredible miracles for us:a€?a€?A.
This righteousness, which is miraculously accomplished for me and in me by Jesus, is the only true righteousness that exists.
Once each year, on the day of atonement, a solemn day of judgment took place in Israel (Leviticus 23:27). He then transferred these confessed sins to the scapegoat, which was led into the wilderness (Leviticus 16:16, 20-22).
That day's services pointed to the blotting out of sin by the real High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary. The altar of burnt offerings where animals were sacrificed was located in the courtyard, just inside its entrance (Exodus 27:1-8). Jesus' death as our sacrificial lamb and substitute, and His continual powerful ministry as our heavenly Priest, accomplish two incredible miracles for us:A. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?


The staggering threefold (Luke 9:26) brightness of His coming will stretch from horizon to horizon, and the atmosphere will be charged with brilliant glory like lightning. As the cloud nears the earth, Jesus will send His angels, and they will quickly gather together all of the righteous people in preparation for the trip back to heaven (Matthew 24:31). He will restore to His people all of the joys and glories of Eden that Adam and Eve lost by sinning.
Then the righteous living will also be given bodies like Christ and will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. This earthquake will be of such a devastating nature that it will leave the world in a state of total destruction. Through the Holy Spirit and my conscience, Jesus knocks and asks to come into my heart so that He can change my life.
One great angel stands on the left side of God's throne and another on the right (Psalms 99:1). By rejecting one of God's commands, Adam and Eve allied themselves with Satan, God's enemy, and thus brought separation between themselves and God (Isaiah 59:2). And Satan will appear as a glorious angel of light with power to call fire down from heaven.
All sinners will openly admit that they are lost because of their determined refusal to accept God's love and salvation. Satan Misrepresents the FatherSatan misrepresents the Father as unfeeling, aloof, exacting, stern, and unapproachable (the devil's own traits).
Jesus Died the Second Death for Every PersonWhen Adam and Eve sinned, they immediately would have died the second death except for the fact that Jesus stepped forward and offered to die the second death on Calvary for every person. But most people don't know that at the same time, the Lord gave Moses the blueprints for one of the most mysterious structures ever built - the sanctuary. This means we cannot fully comprehend the plan of salvation until we understand the symbolism connected with the sanctuary.
Between these angels was the mercy seat (Exodus 25:17-22), where the supernatural presence of God dwelt.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. In this manner, the sanctuary was cleansed of the sins of the people, which had been transferred there by the blood sprinkled before the veil and had been accumulating for a year. Through His shed blood applied to those written in the book of life, Christ would confirm the decisions of His people to serve Him eternally. We cannot know the exact day and hour of Christ's return (Matthew 24:36), but we can be confident that we are the people who will live to see Jesus return.
Here are the Bible's amazing facts about this prince of darkness and how you can overcome him! Lucifer's aim was to usurp God's throne, even if it might eventually lead to murder (John 8:44). Satan hoped the couple would sin and then eat of the tree of life, and thus become immortal sinners. Before Jesus comes the second time, Satan will appear as an angelic being, posing as Christ. In this final showdown, not one being on God's side will die and not one being on Satan's side will survive. It must have been important, because the Israelites could not enter the Promised Land until it was completed.
This symbolized Goda€™s throne in heaven, which is likewise located between two angels (Psalms 80:1).
When Adam and Eve sinned, they would have died at once except for Jesus, who stepped forward and offered to give His perfect life as a sacrifice to pay the death penalty for all people (Revelation 13:8).
This ministry of the blood by the priest foreshadowed Jesus' present blood-ministry for us in heaven. This special judgment day, like that of Israel's Yom Kippur, foreshadowed the final atonement to be made for planet Earth. And these are just a few of many, many positive signs that show we are in the closing days of earth's history.
Spiritism has invaded the churches, as well, with the false teaching of the immortality of the soul. For example, Jesus stated specifically that He will not appear in the desert or come to the seance chambers (verse 26). As a free gift, He bestows upon me His own righteous character so I can stand unafraid before a holy God when my life is changed by Jesus. They surround the holy city to capture it (Revelation 20:9), and fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours them. If anything or anyone other than God receives first place in my life, I am--innocently perhaps--worshiping and supporting Satan.
After his expulsion from heaven, Lucifer was called Satan (adversary) and devil (slanderer), and his angels were called demons.
His deceptive power will be so great that our only safety will lie in refusing to go to see him (Matthew 24:23-26). Note: It is not possible to adequately describe the sadness and anguish the Father and Son will feel at Satan's destruction.
This unique portable temple represented God's dwelling place among His people, and its services showed the nation of freed slaves a three-dimensional panorama of the plan of salvation. After Jesus died on the cross as our sacrifice for sin, He arose and went to heaven as our Priest to minister His blood in the heavenly sanctuary (Hebrews 9:11, 12).
From the yearly type of the ancient day of atonement, all of humanity is assured that our faithful High Priest, Jesus, still mediates in heaven for His people and stands ready to blot out the sins of all who will exercise faith in His shed blood.
Jesus is coming soon, but there is a lot of popular misconceptions regarding just how He's coming. Even religious leaders are denying the plain Bible teachings of Creation, the Flood, the divinity of Christ, the second coming of Christ, and many other vital Bible truths.
Only a small percentage of the citizens of our large cities attend church services regularly, but they jam pleasure resorts by the thousands.
There is no reason to be deceived if we learn what God's book teaches about Christ's second coming.
Those who deny, ignore, or make light of Christ's second advent (as a literal, soon-coming event) are specifically fulfilling Bible prophecy--and doing the devil a very great service. If you absolutely refuse to look and listen, Jesus will protect you from deception (John 10:29). If at that point God had refused to create him, He would have been repudiating that prime principle of free choice.
Too much unchallenged authority (as the Father and Son have) tends to blind leaders to real life.


A careful look into the secrets of the sanctuary will crystallize your understanding of how Jesus saves the lost and leads the church. By slaying the animal with his own hand, the sinner was thus graphically taught that sin caused the innocent animal's death and that his sin would cause the death of innocent Jesus. The blood ministered by the earthly priest represents Jesus applying His blood to our record of sins in the sanctuary above, showing that they are forgiven when we confess them in His name (1 John 1:9).
There is no possible way for a person to become righteous by works (his own efforts), because righteousness requires miracles which only Jesus can accomplish (Acts 4:12). So take a few minutes to understand what the Bible really says about the second coming so you won't be left behind! False christs will appear and do miracles on the earth (Matthew 24:23-27), but Jesus will remain in the clouds above the earth at His second coming.
It is said that 80percent of the world's total knowledge has been brought forth in the last decade and that 90percent of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive today. Psychiatry and the traditions of pseudo-intellectuals have replaced the Bible in many religious circles.
To destroy him and the millions who have followed him will pain the Father and the Son more than the burning will hurt anyone in the fire. But on this day the blood was taken into the most holy place and sprinkled upon and before the mercy seat (Leviticus 16:14). Secular educators teach our youth to scoff at the Bible record of these great truths and substitute evolution and other man-made, false teachings for the plain, simple facts of God's Holy Word.
Pleasure-mad Americans waste billions of hours in front of the TV set in direct fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:4.
The wisest statesmen of our time are concerned for the survival of civilization because crime sweeps forward seemingly beyond control. People who know what the Bible says about the second coming will not be led astray by Satan. Ezekiel 28:13 seems to indicate that his throat was specially prepared to make him an outstanding musician. Centuries later, when he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, worship was still the central issue (Matthew 4:8-11). In love, God had withheld from them the knowledge of heartache, grief, suffering, pain, and death. And it indelibly impressed the sinner with the solemn reality of sin's awful consequences (eternal death) and the desperate need of a Saviour and a substitute. Only on this special judgment day did the high priest enter the most holy place to meet God at the mercy seat. It does not take place at a man's death, nor is it figurative--to be manifested by better world conditions.
A recent poll discovered that only two percent of American student ministers believe in the literal second coming of Christ. His part is to work the mighty miracle within me that changes my life and prepares me for His second coming.
This so infuriates Satan that he will try to force people to worship him or else be killed (Revelation 13:15).
Satan told lies to misrepresent God's character because he knew that no one would ever turn away from such a loving God unless he misunderstood His character. Because they were barred from the tree of life, decay and deterioration--leading ultimately to death--began immediately. God knows before we are born how we will live, but even so, He permits us to live and choose whether to endorse His government or Satan's. We must not permit our noble leaders who are out of touch to jeopardize the very existence of heaven.
The second coming will be a literal, worldwide, visible, personal appearance of Christ in the clouds to bring this world to an end and to reward or punish all men and women.
Divorce rates are climbing wildly, with nearly one marriage in two ending in the divorce court.
Perfect, holy, happy beings, restored once again to the perfect image of God, will at last be at home in a sinless, spotless world as God originally planned. God is willing to be misunderstood and falsely accused and blamed for ages, while taking the time to allow every person to freely choose whom he will follow.
The current immoral generation--with its obsession with sex and filth, with its increasing church membership but decreasing true spirituality--is plain and positive fulfillment of God's Word. Fulfillment: This prophecy points primarily to the long period of tribulation that took place during the Dark Ages and was instigated by the apostate church.
Only a Loving God Would Risk Granting Full Freedom for AllThis glorious, crucial gift of freedom could come only from a just, open, loving God. For a real shock, see how many of the last-day sins listed in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 you can find depicted in any issue of your Sunday newspaper. That's why Luke 17:37 speaks of the bodies of the wicked and mentions the eagles (or vultures) gathered around them.
Nothing short of the coming of the Lord will stem the tide of evil that is now engulfing the world. If God had destroyed Lucifer immediately, some angelic beings who did not fully understand God's character may have begun to worship God through fear, saying, "Lucifer may have been correct. God Accepts Only Loving, Voluntary Service The only service acceptable to God is cheerful, voluntary service prompted by love. Obedience for any other reason is unacceptable.a€?a€?God Is Giving Satan Time to Demonstrate His Principlesa€?Satan claimed he had a better plan for the government of the universe. Obedience for any other reason is unacceptable.God Is Giving Satan Time to Demonstrate His PrinciplesSatan claimed he had a better plan for the government of the universe. The entire universe is watching as we each play a part in the controversy between Christ and Satan. Candles were lighted in many houses; the birds were silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost. As the controversy ends, every soul will fully understand the principles of both kingdoms and will have chosen to follow either Christ or Satan.
Those who have chosen to ally with sin and Satan will be destroyed with him, and God's people will be taken to the eternal safety of their heavenly home.
