Sanctuary

 

By Morris Lewis

 

Now you see the structure is that it has blue, purple and scarlet and that is in the gate of the white linen wall that went entirely around the sanctuary and came across this side, but we have taken it out here as well as the front of the sanctuary so that you could see in.  But keep in mind that this white wall went completely and entirely around the building.  And that the gate was indicated by being between these four pillars and the three apertures of blue purple and scarlet.  Now to show you the continuity of it here we come to the door into the Holy Place and I could read the text that indicates that this door also had blue, purple and scarlet.  Now notice the way that they are enumerated, blue, purple and scarlet.  Now we have put them in here in a sequence of English that reads from left to right.  Were these the Hebrew curtains, the blue would be on this side then the purple and then the red.  Because the Hebrew reads from right to left, but this is constructed in the English manner, but it doesn’t make that much difference, blue, purple and scarlet, keep in mind that the purple is between the other two colours.  Now you will notice that also into the Most Holy Place that here again you find these same colours and they are spoken very distinctly in the scriptures in the 37th and 38th chapters of Exodus as well as 27th chapter, the colours of blue, purple and scarlet. Now it is very essential to understand these particular colours in relationship to these three doors, so let me call you attention to the fact in the book of Proverbs the 23rd chapter, a verse that you no doubt are familiar with and verse 7; speaking of men he says “for as he thinketh in his heart so is he” as a man thinketh in his heart so is he, now the word for think in this particular text is the Hebrew word “Sha’ar” (sa ear) which is also the word for the door. So the text that I read and they shall make the door of the court of blue, purple and scarlet the door for door in that particular text is also the word for think in this particular verse in Proverbs 23:7, so now I want you to see that the door has more than just the colours, blue, purple and scarlet, by which the people could come through the door into the court.  The door now takes on an added meaning of thinking. Now you recall in the book of John the 10th chapter and verse 9 ‘I am the door: by me if any enter in, he shall be saved”, now Christ therefore identifies himself with the door, now the door means think.  Now turn with me in your Bibles to book of Acts 14th chapter and 27th verse “and when they were come together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.”  Now notice every particular word; “God had opened the door to the Gentiles” now you recall the Bible says in Romans and Ephesians a Gentile is a person who has no hope and without God in the world.  So that would indicate then that the people outside of that door are Gentiles, people that have no hope and have no salvation.  But Christ said I am the door and if you will come through that door you will have everlasting life, so it is indicative that if an individual will step through that door into the court area he was in the area of salvation.  Now Christ said I am the door, now the text in Acts 14:27 said God had opened the door of faith, now the word faith in Greek is the word “pistual” which is to believe, to think, and to believe.  So God has opened a door of thinking and believing or faith, so Christ said “I am the door”, the moment the person accepts Christ as the door and steps through that door into this area, he steps into the area of salvation.  Now why would the door make that much difference, turn with me to the book of Numbers the 15th chapter and we will pick up the meaning of those colours and you will see that the door has a very very specific relationship to Christ.  The book of Numbers 15th chapter I am reading verse 38-39 “Speak unto the children of Israel and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: and it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord, and do them;” Now notice that text It says that the Priest was to put a ribbon of blue on their garment now you see that is exactly as it is here, here is a white garment that comes clear up to the sleeve as you can see but around the border they put a blue ribbon.  The white garment of which the blue ribbon is on the border is symbolic of the white or linen wall completely around the Sanctuary.  So this white garment is the court of the sanctuary the priest is wearing.  The blue garment with the bells and pomegranates refers to this particular apartment (Holy Place) and the very colourful ephod with the breastplate represents the last apartment.  So these three pieces of garment the white, the blue and the colourful ephod refers to the court, the Holy and the Most Holy place.  So the priest is wearing the building. Now he said that the priest was to wear a blue ribbon around the border of his garment and it was the case that the door here had a blue stripe in it, that blue stripe represents the Law of God the love of God in the Law and the fact that Christ lived that particular colour, so turn with me now to the book of John the 15th chapter and let me read to you a very important observation that Christ made John 15 verse 10 this is the Master speaking and he said  “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my father’s commandments and I am abiding in his love.” Now you see the blue ribbon on the garment, and by the way Christ had a garment that had a blue ribbon around the bottom of it, now you understand that he was of the tribe of Judah, and we are talking about the tribe of Levi, but even the teachers and the Rabbis in Israel qualified in the text that I read you from Numbers15:38-39, that the teachers and the priests were to wear a blue ribbon around the border of their garment.  Now you remember it said that, that blue ribbon represents the righteousness of the Law.  Now let me show you how this is realistically pictured in the scripture turn with me to the book of Psalms 119th chapter and verse 96 “I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad” now you understand the commandment is a commandment of love and love is exceeding broad and he says here I have seen the perfection of the commandment of love and it its exceeding broadness.  Now it just happens to be that the word perfection in that text is the word kalah (Kaw-law) in Hebrew which is the word for blue. So the Hebrew understood that the word blue Kaw-law, which comes from the basic Hebrew word Kalah, which means perfection that the law is symbolized, the love of the law, is symbolized by the colour blue.  Now you remember there was a woman as recorded in the book of Mark 9th chapter and also in Matthew that was sick, she had an issue of blood of some kind and she could not stop it and it was causing her life to ebb away, she heard about Christ, she said “If I find this master, this Rabbi who has healed other persons, perhaps he could heal me.”  When she found him and saw him she obviously observed that he had a blue ribbon around the border of his garment.  Knowing no doubt this text in John the 15th chapter verse 9-10 and knew that that blue ribbon around his garment was indicative that he kept the love, the law of God.   That if she touched that blue ribbon on his garment it would make her whole.  She followed him for days, she was rather timid but when she saw him in the streets of Jerusalem which were about as far from here to the other side of the altar of sacrifice very narrow and full of people and the crowd following Christ and she thought this her chance, so she pushed the disciples aside and came right up behind Christ for he wouldn’t notice her, he was dealing with the crowd and talking and here she was coming up behind pushing the disciples away, got right behind him, now you see if she wanted to touch his garment she could have touched his sleeve, she could have touched him on the hip, she could have touched him anywhere, but she kept saying; If I touch the hem of his garment, I will be made whole.  So now coming up behind him she no doubt reached down and touched the hem of his garment, the moment she did she realized that the divine power of God had made her whole.  Christ said, ‘Who touched me,” and the disciples said “master in this crowded street who hasn’t touched you,” He said “I perceive that virtue has gone out of my life.”  The word for blue in Hebrew is the word for virtue.  So when she touched the blue, which represented his virtue, the virtue went out of his life and healed her completely.  Now you see the reason why it could heal her is found in the book of John, the same chapter, the15th chapter and I call your attention to what I think is one of the greatest verses in the New Testament, verse 24 “If I had not done among them the works which none other man did,” it is significant that no other man did “they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.”  So Christ said “If I had not done in my humanity by the power of the Holy Spirit what no other man did, then you Jews would not be in sin.”  So his life and his perfection is a contradiction of their life of sin, so if he had any advantages over them, this text has no argument, but they also had access to the power of the Holy Spirit through him so he is saying “in as much as I have done, that is I have lived a perfect life, I have lived a life of blue, that no man has ever done before, now you Jews are in sin because if you touch this blue stripe you will have the virtue of my life.  Turn with me to the book of Matthew the 14th chapter and read the last two verses, verses 35-36, “And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; and besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”  Now do you understand that the word perfectly if it were in Hebrew could be the word Kaw-law, which is the word for blue.  So now you see that the blue in that door and the blue in these succeeding doors has a very very special meaning pertaining to the life of Christ following and exhibiting the love of God in his human person, that if anybody touches that human person and believes that Christ is their personal Saviour and his virtue will come into their lives by merely touching that garment and the blue stripe.  Have you touched the blue stripe of his garment?  The blue in that door represents the life of Christ living in humanity by the power of the Holy Spirit the perfect evidence of the love of God, and if anybody will go through that door knowing that blue stripe is the perfection of the Law in the life of Christ that blue will be attributed to the person who steps through that door, now the red is very very obvious, in the book of Isaiah and the first chapter I read this text that you are most familiar with verse 18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”  Now the word red and crimson and scarlet in this text, the word crimson in Hebrew is adam-dam-ah now if you hear me pronounce that you hear this word dam dam is repeated in this word.  The word for crimson in this text in Isaiah 1:18 is adam-dam-ah, the word adam in Hebrew, Adam means red dirt and God took red dirt and made a man and called him red dirt, which in Hebrew is Adam.  Now the word dam in his name is particularly the word for red in Hebrew and when Hebrew want to emphasize a colour or an idea they double that syllable, so in as much as he wants to show that the crimson is even more red than scarlet, thou your life be as crimson it shall be as wool, the word crimson is adam-dam-ah, you see it is really red red.  So the red stripe in the door represents the blood of Christ that he died on Calvary.  Turn with me to the book of Isaiah 53, that great chapter that has to do with the crucifixion of Christ, and I read verse 10 “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.” Now the soul a sacrifice for sin, the Hebrew word for soul is nephesh which is the word for mind or soul.  So this text says that God will make the mind of Christ a sacrifice for sin.  Now we are getting down to the great basic principle of the entire Sanctuary, all the sacrifices that were offered on this altar and all the blood of the sacrifices that finally came to the altar of incense and all the blood of the sacrifices that came to the last altar of the covenant in the last apartment, on the gold lid, all are centered in the meaning of this particular text.  It says God gave his mind a sacrifice for sin that is in the Garden of Gethsemane Christ took upon himself the sins of the entire world.  He took these sins upon himself as if he had committed every sin, and in as much as his person is our person and he has taken upon his person our sins, it is as if he is taken our person upon himself in its sinful nature.  Now that he has taken all the sins of the world upon him, and by the way where did he take them upon him, did he put them on his garments? Did he put them in a little book and put it in his pocket? Did he record their sins in heaven and refer to heaven from time to time to get an account of their sins? Where did he take our sins? He took them where we have them in our mind.  So the sins of our mind are transferred to the mind of Christ.  In the Garden of Gethsemane he is wrestling with this issue and he said “Father if this could pass let it pass, if not I will accept it,” so when he took the cup which is symbolic, and drank the contents of the grape juice, which represents the blood of the human race on their guilt of sin then he transferred the sins of the whole human race to his mind.  And once they are transferred to his mind and he is conscious of the guilt of the sins of the world it begins to press out of his life the Holy Spirit.  Because this took place in the place called Gethsemane which in Hebrew means an Olive Press.  So at an Olive Press which represents the oil of the Holy Spirit is pressed out of his life so that when he takes the sins of the world the pressure on his mind squeezes out the Holy Spirit of his life and he now is in a position to die a death which sinners will die at the end of time when they pay the penalty for their transgression, and they die a death in which there is no hope that they will ever live again.  So in order for Christ to die the death, the penalty for sin in his mind, taking their sins, his sins begin to separate him from God as it says in Isaiah 59:2 Sin separates from God.  So when he took our sin it begins to separate him from God and press the Holy Spirit out of his life, which was the power that united him with God.  And this separation became greater and greater and his experience of eternal death became more real and certain until he cried out in Hebrew on Calvary Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani, Mark 15:34, My God why have you deserted me, or left me, now you see this could never be the truth if the Holy Spirit was still in his life.  He gave his mind a sacrifice for sin that is in his mind he’s taking the sins of the world which are separating him from God and taking him down to a depth in which he will have no hope that he will ever live again.  This is the same death that the sinner will die at the end of the 1000 years, and if his death is not in the capacity of man as their death will be in the capacity of man then his death would have no advocacy.  But in as much as he is a man and by the Holy Spirit being pressed out of his life because of the guilt of the sins he is now going in his mind an experience of being separated  from God and dying a death in which there is no hope of a resurrection.  Now my dear people this is the great meaning of the red stripe all through the Sanctuary it represents the death in which the person will die and having no hope that he will ever live again.  This is the death that the sinner will die at the end of the 1000 years and that is the meaning of every sacrifice that went on this altar and every bit of blood that was tipped on the horns of this altar for it says that “Christ is the horn of our salvation” and whenever they put blood on their finger and put it on this horn they were putting on Christ.  And the blood and the red stripe in this door also has a very specific meaning of the blood that went on the horns of that particular altar (Incense).  And the red stripe in the last door also has a relationship to the last altar the covenant of the 10 Commandments.  So I want to trace these colours through these doors so that you see the meaning as the person is advancing more and more through the Sanctuary to the throne of God.  So the red stripe represents the mind of Christ taking the sins of the world , permitting those sins to separate him from God, dying a death in which there is no hope of a resurrection that that red stripe may go in that door.  So as that person approaches that door and sees the red stripe there he recognizes that red stripe represents the blood of the death of Christ on this altar which represents Calvary and the red stripe as it goes all through the Sanctuary in its different applications. So the red stripe is in the mind of Christ dying and paying the penalty for sin, now I want you to see that even though they were dealing with animals and blood and a lamb on the altar and blood on the altar all those sacrifices referred to the mind of Christ suffering sin.  All though in that case they were animals used they pertained to the mind of Christ suffering the sins of the entire world.  And that put that red stripe in that door and the red stripe in this ephod.  Now let me give you a direct and classic example of symbolic interpretation, you interpret symbols by analyzing the physical feature of the symbol, in this case it’s the door; blue, purple and scarlet.  Now you recognize that if you take blue paint and mix a little red you would get purple.  So now you must recognize this colour is a part of this colour and a part of that colour.  Now that is physically true, purple is a part of blue and red.  Now it’s the same in the Ephod, you see it’s in the same position, the red the purple and the blue, and it is the same all the way through these doors.  So the colours in these doors are all related, but in each apartment they have a different meaning.  So now you see in this door the red is the blood of Christ, the blue is his righteousness and in the book of Judges the 8th chapter verse 26 says that the Kings wore purple, that’s correct this purple was a very beautiful purple made with a dye that came from a shellfish in the Mediterranean and they used it to dye cloth and when they did they made the most beautiful purple you ever laid your eyes on and it was a fast colour and wouldn’t wash or fade away.  Now when Christ was crucified as it records in the book of John the 19th chapter and verse 2 “And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,” Now why did they put a purple garment on him, well because in the process of the trial it came up that he claimed to be the King of the Jews and Pilate took him aside and said to him privately “Are you the King of the Jews?” and he said “you have just spoken the truth” Pilate never stopped shaking after that.  He knew he was handling a King, the King of the Jews and when they put the purple robe on him which was worn out and discarded it was to shame him, it was to ridicule his acclaim to be of the royal lineage of David and King of the Jews of which he really was. So when they put the purple robe on him it was indicative of that purple stripe in the door.  Now the Bible says that as a result of Salvation, God will grant that we become Kings and Priests and rule with him throughout eternity.  So the purple stripe is the symbol of the reward of the saints of this earth, they shall become kings by accepting the Davidic righteousness of Christ which puts them in the royal lineage of the Old Testament, and they shall become kings and rule with Christ throughout eternity.  This is exactly the words that came from his mouth as recorded in the book of Revelation 3rd chapter and verse 20-21 “Behold I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”  Now that throne is illustrated by the last piece of furniture and the crown that is worked in the top of the ark as you can see by looking at that piece of furniture.  So the purple stripe all through these doors picks up the crown in this piece of furniture (table of shew bread) as you see here the crown worked in this furniture, you see the crown in the piece of furniture , and in the candlesticks, when the bud of the almond opened up, the shell of the bud opened up, it is just like on an apple, if you take an apple and look on the blossom end you will see that little jagged part of the folding of the bud that opened up to produce the apple.  That is called crown in Hebrew because it has the jagged symbol of a crown.  So there is a crown in this piece of furniture (Table of Shew Bread) there is a crown in that piece of furniture (Candlestick)  and a crown in this one (Altar of Incense) and there is also a crown in the Mercy Seat of the ark.  That crown is picking up the purple stripe in these doors to promise you the fulfillment of the statement that Christ made ‘If he who comes in and sups with me I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, and rule throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.”  That blue stripe is the symbol of your reward by letting Christ come into your life with the blue, the purple and the scarlet.  Now you will understand the blood went on this altar (brass altar of sacrifice), the red stripe in the door went on the altar and on these horns representing the atonement of Christ, the blue in the stripe represents the copper in the brass which is perfection and the purple in there represents the fact that you stepping through that door you step into this area and become a son of David of the Royal lineage of the Bible and you are in the family of God’s royalty and will become a king and sit with him on the throne.  Now you remember the word Israel in Hebrew means “a prince of God”, the el is God in Israel, and the moment you become an Israelite by accepting Christ that el means that you shall rule with God throughout eternity.  So the el in Israel is the purple stripe in that door. So the moment the person steps into that door, which is Christ and in his mind understanding that the blue is Christ’s perfection, understanding in his mind that that red is Christ’s death for his sins and the combination of those colours shall make him in the royal lineage of Christ and become a king to rule with Christ throughout eternity and he understanding that, thinks that, accepts Christ, he steps through that door.  So you understand you don’t come in the door on your feet all together you come through your thinking in your head which is faith, and that is why it is called the door that God opened for the gentiles of faith into the relationship with Christ, which is this apartment (Courtyard).   Now we come to these particular colour in this door turn with me to the book of Psalms the 118th chapter and notice the implication of the colours in the next door Psa 118:19 “open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord.” this gate of the Lord into which the righteous shall enter.  Now you see this gate could not possibly be that gate, because the people on the outside of that door are not righteous, they are gentiles without hope and without God in the world.  But once they step through that door and receive as a gift the righteousness of Christ then that makes them righteous.  So being in this apartment and stepping through this door then this particular blue represents the righteousness in the life of the individual that he has in the court that enables him to step through this particular door into this area of the Sanctuary (Holy Place) that is surrounded by gold walls.  Now I want you to see that when a person steps through that door he steps behind a white linen wall.  In Revelation 19:8 says that the white linen is the righteousness of the saints.  So once he steps into that area he has the righteousness of Christ, now he stands in face of this door, if he steps through this door and he makes up one more decision and that decision is found in the book of Psalm 119th chapter and other places in the Bible but notice it in this particular book Psa 119 and this is a beautiful chapter on the Law and it says in verse 34 “Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy Law; yea, I will observe it with my whole heart.” Now you understand that the Law we are talking about is the Love of God.  So perhaps it would be better and more meaningful to say that this blue stripe represents the Love of God.  So the person must have this love before he can step through this door. Now this has a tremendous meaning, let me go back and illustrate it; in order for a person to step through this door he must be a righteous person, he must be one who already has the blue.  This is the door the righteous shall enter and he is entering this door, it puts him behind gold walls, now you understand that the gold wall came all across here, if we had it you would not be able to see in, that’s why we took it off here on this side, but the gold wall is completely surrounding this apartment (Holy Place).  So when he stepped from a linen wall area into a gold wall area he is stepping from the gift of Christ’s righteousness and when he makes the decision’s, I will obey the love of God, he steps through that door.  Now you understand this is a great principle revealed in the gospel of the sanctuary, you must be righteous before you can do good.  Now God knows that, so in order for you to step through this door (Holy Place) you must have stepped through that door (Into court yard) previously.  Well by the structure of the sanctuary you see that is essential, how get you get through here if you did not come through that door, because the Bible says that if you get into an apartment by not going through the doors you are a what??  A thief and a robber.  If anybody enters other than the door he is a thief and a robber, so you must go through the doors, so at that door the blue stripe, you pick up the love of God in Christ, now in this particular decision to go through this particular door you make the mind that you are going to manifest the love of God.  Now you remember what Christ said ‘the world will know that you are my disciples because you manifest love to the brethren.”  Now do you see the difference between that door and this door.  That door you pick up the righteousness of Christ’s obedience, going through this door you make a decision that you will begin to manifest the love of God in your life and you will obey the Law of God.  Because door means decision, so what Christ is wanting you to do to come to the Throne of God is to take his righteousness and make up your mind that you will live it. So when you make up your mind I will obey and live the love of God you step through that door and that blue stripe is now in your life in this apartment and now you are behind the gold wall of the 10 commandments.  Now this is a very very advantages position to be in, once a person is in here (Holy Place) he is now covered by the red stripe which is the blood that the priest on certain occasions would come in and dip his fingers in the bowl and put the blood on the horns of this altar (Altar of Incense). Now the question is ‘what is the difference in putting the blood on this horn than putting the blood on the horn in the court.  The difference of the blood in this horn is this, when the individual makes up his mind that he will obey the love of God, that is he will live the life of Christ, if he makes any mistake in his life and quite evidently will, for the Bible says “if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness,” now that text is applicable to that altar.  So when the individual steps through this door, making a decision to obey the love of God and to live the life of Christ, if he should make some mistake in his life and did not come up to the complete obedience of Christ, the blood on that altar will wipe away that fault or sin in his life or the negligence in his life.  So that by restoring in his life the blue of Christ’s righteousness which is represented by that gold wall, then God every day by your confession is keeping your life up to the blue stripe of this apartment which is the gold wall of this enclosure (Holy Place).  Now be sure you see this is one of the most beautiful revelations of the gospel in the entire Sanctuary truth.  In this apartment you receive the obedience of Christ and you are saved by his obedience.  In this apartment you begin to give evidence of your own obedience which determines your reward, the blue stripe in that door (Courtyard) is your salvation, the blue stripe in this door (Holy Place) is your reward in Heaven for Christ said “I will reward every man according to his good works.”  So let your life so shine before man that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” So now the love of Christ is coming out of your conduct and you become a light to the world.  So the blue stripe in this door is the righteousness of Christ evidenced in your conduct.  Now if you will take the blue strip of his righteousness and the red stripe of the blood on this altar and mix them together you will have the crown of this particular piece of furniture (Altar of Incense) which is your realization you are now preparing the Royal Character of a son of God and you will rule with him throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.  Now be sure you see the blue, purple and scarlet in that apartment and you see the blue, purple and scarlet colour in this apartment, the difference is that’s the blue, purple and scarlet in the life of Christ and this is the blue, purple and scarlet showing up in your life by your obedience to his law.  Now let’s look at the last apartment, here we have the last door and here to we have the same colours blue, purple and scarlet, now these colours have a very definite meaning in this apartment.  Let’s take up the blue, The blue in this apartment, you remember I showed you the word blue (Kaw-law) is the word for perfect gold and the last piece of furniture, that is the gold lid or the mercy seat was made of solid gold, that’s the only piece of furniture in the whole building made of solid gold.  Now this is gold plate (table of shew bread), that is gold plate (altar of incense) this is all gold but it is hollow (Candle stick), the box (Ark of the Covenant) is out of wood, gold plate inside and out, but the lid (Mercy Seat)is solid gold.  So the lid now is the blue stripe absolute perfection of Christ.  In the book of Leviticus 16th chapter we have Yom Kippur set out, they took two goats on the Day of Atonement which is the day they went into that apartment, only one day, once a year.  The day of Atonement, on that day they took two goats and they killed one goat and they took his blood in the course of time the priest would put on this beautiful garb that you see, the full garment of the high priest, and go through this particular door and he would dip his hands in the bowl that had the blood of the goat and sprinkle it seven times on the lid between the two angels.  Now this red stripe is goats blood sprinkled on the lid, now that is symbolic of the final atonement, all the other altars are just subsidiaries, all the other altars are just functioning in a way to bring the person to the final atonement.  So one day of the year on the 10th day of the 7th month when they put the goat’s blood on that lid, that is the blood that atoned for sin.  Now you understand, it did not atone for sin, that blood only represents the blood of Christ on Calvary that will be applied in the Heavenly Sanctuary on that particular piece of furniture in the Heavenly Sanctuary at the last of time.  And when that blood is applied for you it will cleanse you of all sins of which you are guilty whether you have overcome them in your life or not.  So if the person died in this apartment (Holy Place) endeavoring to obey Christ but his life did not come up to the top of the gold wall which is the love of God, he has faith that here is one more door and one more red stripe one more application of blood which is of the goat, and when that blood is applied for him by having faith in the lamb or the sacrifice of Christ, that blood when applied in that apartment will wipe away all guilt of sin.  This is found in the book of Hebrews the 9th and 10th chapter and I should call your attention to it.  I am reading now from Hebrews the 9th chapter verse 14 “how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal spirit offering himself without spot to God, purge you conscience from dead works to serve the living God.”  Now the blood that purges the conscience from all sense of guilt is the blood applied on the last altar.  So that red stripe indicates that God at some time in the Heavenly Sanctuary where Christ is administering for us will apply his blood of Calvary to our life and account and it will wipe away every sense of guilt or disdain or despair that results from sin will be wiped out of your life and you will be as if you had never sinned , now that’s what that red stripe and that application of blood that the other two did not do and when that is done the individuals life will be as perfect as gold as that blue stripe is evidence of God’s love.  And that will make you truly and absolutely a righteous son of David and you will have the opportunity to step up with Christ upon his throne and rule throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.  Revelation 15 and verse 2 “and I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” they are standing before his throne, in the 7th chapter of the book of Revelation I am reading from verse 9 “after this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;” so here John sees the redeemed of the earth standing before the throne of God which is in the symbolism of the Sanctuary this apartment (Most Holy Place) standing before that throne which is the purple stripe in this door, and as Christ says “he that overcomes I will  grant him to sit with me on my throne and in the book of Revelation now he sees the redeemed of this Earth have come all the way through the Sanctuary to the last apartment and are standing before his throne and Christ will say to them “Come ye blessed of my Father and reign with me throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity” And we pick this up in the last chapter of the Bible which is chapter 22 of Revelation and I read it in verse 5 “and there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign forever and ever.”  The reigning forever and ever with him is the symbol, the final symbol of the purple stripe in the last door which is applicable to the crown around the altar of the Ark which indicates now that the people of this earth have come up the full blue stripe which is righteousness they have met the atonement of the red stripe and putting those two together makes the purple stripe and they shall become kings with God and reign with him throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

 

This is all the result of the individuals uniting himself with Christ, let them make me a sanctuary that I may dwell with them, and I will dwell with them and take them into this apartment, I will dwell with them and take them into this apartment and I finally will dwell with them and take them into the last apartment and make their lives as pure as the blue stripe of his perfection and the final atonement of the red stripe of their atonement of the cross of Calvary applied to their lives will make them truly the sons of God to Christ of the lineage of David and they shall rule throughout the ceaseless ages with him throughout  eternity because they have united their lives with Christ and he has taken their lives with him all the way through the Sanctuary to the throne of God and grants them to reign with him upon his throne throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity, this is the blessed result of the revelation of the sanctuary in the Old Testament as fulfilled in the life of Christ in the New and culminates in the book of Revelation it its final reality that you shall become a child of the lineage of David of the Royal family and reign with him throughout eternity, that is the true meaning of Is ra el a prince of God.
