The Sanctuary

I will dwell in your tabernacle forever. I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.  Psalm 61:4 Blessed is the one whom you choose, and cause to come near, that he may live in your courts.

Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them. It will be an everlasting covenant with them. I will place them, multiply them, and will set my sanctuary among them forever more.  My tent also will be with them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. The nations will know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary is among them forever more.”’” Ezekiel 37:26-28

I will bring these to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer… 🙂 Isaiah 56:7a

Now in the things which we are saying, the main point is this. We have such a high priest, who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a servant of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man. Hebrews 8:1,2

True tabernacle

The Holy Spirit is indicating this, that the way into the Holy Place wasn’t yet revealed while the first tabernacle was still standing; which is a symbol of the present age, where gifts and sacrifices are offered that are incapable, concerning the conscience, of making the worshiper perfect; being only (with meats and drinks and various washings) fleshly ordinances, imposed until a time of reformation.  But Christ having come as a high priest of the coming good things, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:8-12

More perfect tabernacle

They shall be abundantly satisfied with the abundance of your house. You will make them drink of the river of your pleasures.  For with you is the spring of life. In your light shall we see light.  Oh continue your loving kindness to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart. Psalm 36:8-10

Abundance of Your House

One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple.  For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.    Psalms 27:4,5

…and having a great priest over God’s house, Hebrews 10:21

See that you make them after their pattern, which has been shown to you on the mountain. Exodus 25:40

Look down from heaven, and see from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory. Where are your zeal and your mighty acts?

Our Redeemer from everlasting is your name. Isaiah 63:15,16

“Therefore prophesy against them all these words, and tell them, “‘Yahweh will roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation.  Jeremiah 25:30

Hear, you peoples, all of you. Listen, O earth, and all that is therein: and let the Lord Yahweh be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. For, behold, Yahweh comes out of his place, and will come down and tread on the high places of the earth.  Micah 1:2,3

Be silent, all flesh, before Yahweh; for he has roused himself from his holy habitation!” Zechariah 2:13

Yahweh’s voice makes the deer calve, and strips the forests bare. In his temple everything says, “Glory!”  Yahweh sat enthroned at the Flood. Yes, Yahweh sits as King forever.  Yahweh will give strength to his people. Yahweh will bless his people with peace. Psalms 29:9-11

I will dwell in your tent forever. I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah. Psalm 61:4

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of Yahweh, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.”  Psalm 91:1,2

One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after: that I may dwell in Yahweh’s house all the days of my life, to see Yahweh’s beauty, and to inquire in his temple.  For in the day of trouble, he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the secret place of his tabernacle, he will hide me. He will lift me up on a rock.  Psalm 27:4,5

Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.  Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.  From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised.  The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,  Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!  He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;  That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.  He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.  Psalm 113

To you, Yahweh, I call. My rock, don’t be deaf to me; lest, if you are silent to me, I would become like those who go down into the pit. 
Hear the voice of my petitions, when I cry to you, when I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.   Psalm 28:1,2

What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?  Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.  But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him. Habakkuk 2:18-20

To you I do lift up my eyes, you who sit in the heavens.  Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; so our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.  Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.   Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud. Psalm 123

They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the Sanctuary.  Psalms 68:24

Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.  The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.  I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.  When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into Thine holy temple.  They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.  But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. Jonah 2:4-9

We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.   Mark 14:58

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.  II Corinthians 5:2,3

But Christ having come a high priest of the good things to come, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11,12

For Christ entered not into a holy place made with hands, like in pattern to the TRUE; but into heaven itself, now to appear before the face of God for us:  nor yet that he should offer himself often; as the high priest entereth into the holy place year by year with blood not his own; else must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once at the end of the ages hath he been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. Hebrews 9:24-26

“Moreover concerning the foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, when he comes out of a far country for your name’s sake (for they shall hear of your great name, and of your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm); when he comes and prays toward this house;  hear in heaven, your dwelling place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls to you for; that all the peoples of the earth may know your name, to fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by your name.  I Kings 8:41-43

Don’t you know that you are a temple of God, and that God’s Spirit lives in you?  If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, which you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16,17

For our citizenship is in heaven, from where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20

Seek first God’s Kingdom, and His righteousness;

…to demonstrate his righteousness … Romans 3:26
…everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him. I John 2:29b
…we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. I Peter 3:13
…the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day. 2 Timothy 4:8
…He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,… Isaiah 61:10
‘The city of righteousness, a faithful town.’  Zion shall be redeemed with justice,… Isaiah 1:26b-27
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness. Your law is truth. Psalms 119:142

But you have come to Mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable multitudes of angels, to the festal gathering and assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,  to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better than that of Abel.  Hebrews 12:22-24

For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens.  For most certainly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven;  if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked.  For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.  Therefore we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord;  for we walk by faith, not by sight.   We are courageous, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord.  Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him.  For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.  I Corinthians 5:1-10

But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.  Daniel 12:13

He said to me, “To two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary will be cleansed.” [2,300th Day of Atonement]  Daniel 8:14

 

He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity. Psalms 98:9b

… The LORD bless thee, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness. Jeremiah 31:23b KJV

“Yahweh! Yahweh, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth, keeping loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and disobedience and sin; and who will by no means clear the guilty…Exodus 34:6,7

…‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest to you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.  You shall do no regular work; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh.’” Leviticus 23:24,25

He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Psalms 23:3

O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

…they may be called trees of righteousness, Isaiah 61:3

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. Psalm 52:8

… a righteous Branch, and a King…THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.   Jeremiah 23:5,6

…The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:  Zechariah 6:12

1

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 

Repent!

Yahweh, who shall dwell in your sanctuary? Who shall live on your holy hill?  Psalms 15:1

You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, the place, Yahweh, which you have made for yourself to dwell in; the sanctuary, Lord, which your hands have established. Yahweh shall reign forever and ever.” Exodus 15:17,18

…your righteousness like the waves of the sea. Isaiah 48:18

Your judgments are like a great deep. Yahweh, you preserve man and animal.  How precious is your loving kindness, God! The children of men take refuge under the shadow of your wings.  They shall be abundantly satisfied with the abundance of your house. Psalms 36:8-8

2

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;  And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 

Repent!

…until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 2 Peter 1:19

There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad, the holy place of the tents of the Most High.  God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her at dawn.  Psalms 46:4,5

But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.   Amos 5:24

It will happen in that day, that the mountains will drop down sweet wine, the hills will flow with milk, all the brooks of Judah will flow with waters, and a fountain will flow out from Yahweh’s house, and will water the valley of Shittim.  Joel 3:18

3

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;  And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 

Repent!

Those who turn many to righteousness will shine as the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12:3

For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning lamp. Isaiah 62:1

In my Father’s house are many homes… I am going to prepare a place for you. John 14:2

Jesus answered him, “If a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him.  John 14:23

4

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 

Repent!

…the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2
…they may be called trees of righteousness, Isaiah 61:3
…leave a blessing behind him, even a meal offering and a drink offering to Yahweh, your God. Joel 2:14

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and entering into that which is within the veil; where as a forerunner Jesus entered for us, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19,20

…being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, Philippians 1:11

(…for the tree bears its fruit… Joel 2:22)

Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.  They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; Psalms 92:13,14

I will make them and the places around my hill a blessing. I will cause the shower to come down in its season. There will be showers of blessing.  Ezekiel 34:26

5

(the beast that comes up out of the abyss Revelation 11:7)

Repent!

The fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the earth. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him.  He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit.  Then out of the smoke came locusts on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  They were told that they should not hurt [treat unrighteous] the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those people who don’t have God’s seal on their foreheads.  They were given power, not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a person.  In those days people will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.  The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war.  On their heads were something like golden crowns, and their faces were like people’s faces.  They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like those of lions.  They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron. The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war.  They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails they have power to harm men for five months.  They have over them as king the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is “Abaddon”, but in Greek, he has the name “Apollyon”.  [A destroyer].

In righteousness he judges and makes war. Revelation 19:11

“If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, if there is blight, mildew, locust or caterpillar; if their enemy besieges them in the land of their cities; whatever plague, whatever sickness there is; whatever prayer and supplication is made by any man, or by all your people Israel, who shall each know the plague of his own heart, and spread out his hands toward this house,  then hear in heaven, your dwelling place, and forgive, and act, and give to every man according to all his ways, whose heart you know (for you, even you only, know the hearts of all the children of men); that they may fear you all the days that they live in the land which you gave to our fathers.  I Kings 8:37-40

and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness. Malachi 3:2,3

6

Repent!

…Until I entered God’s sanctuary, and considered their latter end. Psalm 73:17

The first woe is past. Behold, there are still two woes coming after this.  The sixth angel sounded. I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Free the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates!”   The four angels were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year, so that they might kill one third of mankind.   The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million. I heard the number of them.  Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the horses’ heads resembled lions’ heads. Out of their mouths proceed fire, smoke, and sulfur.  By these three plagues were one third of mankind killed: by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur, which proceeded out of their mouths.  For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they harm.  The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues, didn’t repent of the works of their hands, that they wouldn’t worship demons, and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can’t see, hear, or walk.  They didn’t repent of their murders, their sorceries, their sexual immorality, or their thefts. 

DIDN'T REPENT

I saw a mighty angel coming down out of the sky, clothed with a cloud. A rainbow was on his head. His face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.  He had in his hand a little open book. He set his right foot on the sea, and his left on the land.  He cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars. When he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.  When the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from the sky saying, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders said, and don’t write them.”  The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to the sky, and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there will no longer be delay, but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as he declared to his servants, the prophets.  The voice which I heard from heaven, again speaking with me, said, “Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.”  I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. He said to me, “Take it, and eat it up. It will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.” I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth. When I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.  They told me, “You must prophesy again over many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.” Revelation 10

A reed like a rod was given to me. Someone said, “Rise, and measure God’s temple, and the altar, and those who worship in it.  Leave out the court which is outside of the temple, and don’t measure it, for it has been given to the nations. They will tread the holy city under foot for forty-two months.  I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”  These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands, standing before the Lord of the earth.  If anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone desires to harm them, he must be killed in this way.   These have the power to shut up the sky, that it may not rain during the days of their prophecy. They have power over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.  When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them. Their dead bodies will be in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.  From among the peoples, tribes, languages, and nations people will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. Those who dwell on the earth rejoice over them, and they will be glad. They will give gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.  After the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet. Great fear fell on those who saw them.  I heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” They went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies saw them.  In that day there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified, and gave glory to the God of heaven.  [Repentant] The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe comes quickly.  Revelation 11:1-14

DID REPENT!!

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His Throne.  Psalms 97:2b

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.  Psalms 89:14

But as for me, in the abundance of your loving kindness I will come into your house. I will bow toward your holy temple in reverence of you.  Lead me, Yahweh, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before my face. Psalms 5:7,8
