WHERE DID LIFE COME FROM? Clifford Goldstein & Signs of the Times Aug. 2015.g

Note(JB): My many thanks for the words from this author and the Publisher, for this edification.

   Please note, Francis Crick and James Watson co-discoverers of the DNA double helix molecule. Francis, as militant atheist, must have learned, that any information, which is what the the DNA molecule carries, MUST have an intelligent source, to even exist! It was, after all HIS intellect in part with his partner that we now know about the DNA, agree??  I guess we all see that what we wish to see, right?

    ACCORDING TO HOLLYWOOD....    there's no shortage of alien life out in the Universe. They are usually presented as hostile to humans. In fact the flicks as War of the Worlds, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Independence Day,  depict cosmic creatures that threaten humanity's very existence.
     On the other hand, throughout history some thinkers, philosophers and even scientists have taken a completely different spin on the question of the relationship between life on earth and life in outer space. Instead of imagining aliens as hostile, to the point of making us extinct, they believe that alien life could have "SEEDED" life here to begin with! So, far from being hostile, they are quite friendly towards us. So what's the back story on this idea? Is there anything to it?


    The idea that life on earth originated from outer space is called PANSPERMIA  from the Greek words PAN meaning, " all" and SPERMIA meaning  "SEED". Proponents of this theory.. (JB remember every idea states a theory, until its a proven fact, and teachings today that evolution is a fact, does not make it so!) hold that this can spread throughout the Cosmos, via microbes is asteroids, or other such debris that landed on  earth or elsewhere.and fortuitously life got a foothold on this earth. Or, as some have argued, perhaps aliens came here, and purposely planted life on this planet as perhaps elsewhere.

NOTE(JB):  ever wondered of the why,   .... why all these ideas are couched in words like perhaps, possibly, could have, might have, does this give these PHD's "Wiggle Room"?  Compared to the Holy Bible's Creation stating it as fact? Yet on each Bible's point human science says the exact opposite, just as Satan has a counterfeit, exact opposite, for each of God's ideals! Ever wondered of the WHY?  Please think for self!

     We must give Francis  Crick his due, stating that life on  earth is far too complicated to have formed by mere chance... "An honest man," he said, "armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment ( a "wiggle room" word)  to be almost ( another?) a miracle, so many things have had to be satisfied to it going."
     Hence, he proposed a solution: Life itself was first brought to Earth in spaceships billions of years ago by more highly advance creatures.......

NOTE(JB) ditto for the small super dense rock that exploded and created the Universe? Where IT... and these Superior being come from originally, an open question to any PHD! Is this not as spitting into the wind but hoping to stay dry?

........ "As an alternative to these 19th Century mechanisms," he wrote, " we have considered Directed Panspermia, the theory that organisms were deliberately transmitted to the Earth by intelligent beings on another planted"!!!!


    Others who think there could be something to this but reject the idea of the DIRECTED part, rather they hold that life could have been transported through space in comets or asteroids, and meteorites, but purely by accident. This is called Ballistic Panspermia. Then, by some "Miracle"? survived the all the rigors of space travel, for however long in time, even surviving the massive heat, of travel through Earth's atmosphere, then landing on a surface, suited for that life-form! These "SEEDS", then just happened to take "root", survive and even multiply, and of course "EVOLVE" into what we see today! From Fungus to turnips to the Boston Symphony orchestra, has their origins from other planets!
    Yet, even proponents of this idea admit this is highly speculative, but they suggest, that this would solve the most problematic problem: The explanation of the Origin of life on earth. Because how could the life-form on our planet have arisen from nonliving material, as the evolution theory teaches?

NOTE(JB): Does not life begat life? Thus this idea of Panspermia, IF TRUE, would solve this problem, however it does not show anyone how the diversity of life came to be on this earth, now does it?


     Some in science, have claimed that we already have the evidence for alien microbes reaching earth. In 1996, headlines were splashed all over earth, that a meteorite found in Antarctica, earlier, called the Allan Hills 84001 had shown evidence of life on Mars. The theory stated that the rock was blown off the Mars surface, by a meteorite impact ( JB. quite conveniently 4.5 Billions of years ago, the same age as stated for earth, which they claimed was but a molten mass???? Does it not strike you, dear reader, the more they explain, the muddier it gets?) .The announcement of the possible discovery of what would have been extraterrestrial life caused quite a stir, even prompting President Clinton to make a televised announcement to mark the event!
    However,, critics quickly pointed out to the many problems with that specific interpretation of the evidence found in this meteorite.  Before long, papers had been written arguing that the strange features on the rock were mere leftovers of a unique geochemistry and that nothing on the meteorite showed microbiological features. To this day scientists debate the question, even if the consensus is that Allan Hills 84001, however interesting, didn't carry evidence of extraterrestrial life from Mars'
     Hence, what might have been deemed a powerful example of how Panspermia could have happened doesn't seem to present any solid evidence for it at all. (JB how does anyone know it was a rock from Mars? Did it have a " Zip code on it?" after all there many Billions of planets out there , right?)


    The idea that panspermia is not a 20 nor a 21st Century idea, in fact the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras, who lived more than 400 years before Christ, believed that life could have started elsewhere in the Cosmos be fore coming here.. In 1743, the idea of panspermia appeared in the writings of a french natural historian named Benoi^t de Maillet, who claimed that life on earth began as seeded by germs from space that fell into the oceans. Others also promoted this idea as well, including the fam3ed Lord Kelvin, who wrote in 1871 that "we must regard it as probable in the highest degree that there are countless seed-bearing meteoric stones moving about through space.. If at the present instance no life existed upon this earth, one such stone falling upon it might {a wiggle word!}, by what we blindly call natural caused, lead to ots becoming covered in vegetation."......
NOTE(JB)" Of course all these people are far too highly educated to accept the Word of the Holy Bible, after all who can speak things into existence from nothing?  Funny that most of these "Intellectuals" rose to prominence post the book by Darwin, "The Origin of Species" that came from the fertile mind of Satan, and hit the public in 1850's! Along with "DAS KAPITAL, by Karl Marx and Engels' "Communist Manifesto" (who also began the international Trade Unions). Man what a trio,  in that each collaborated with the other! How ever, Darwin's book is beloved by the Left, they do not embrace that idea that the white race evolved long before all other races, thus far superior to all others, thus it's never spoken about nor written of, right? Lies built upon lies, is Satan M.O.!

...... Just how live ca n be sustained in a rock, is space for eons of time, is not ever explained, beyond dormancy, but????


     Genesis 1:1-2  In the beginning <re'shiyth> God <'elohiym>{PLURAL MEANING THE fATHER, THE SON & THE HOLY SPIRIT] created <'eth> the heaven <shamayim> and <'eth> the earth <'erets>. And the earth <'erets> was <hayah> without form <tohuw>, and void <bohuw>; and darkness <choshek> was upon the face <paniym> of the deep howm
>. And the Spirit <ruwach> of God <'elohiym> moved <rachaph> upon <`al> the face <paniym> of the waters <mayim>.
NOTE(jb) WITHOUT FORM [ tohuw} desolate, and void of life!
    Genesis 2:7  And the LORD hovah
> God <'elohiym> formed <yatsar> man <'adam> of the dust <`aphar> of the ground <'adamah>, and breathed <naphach> into his nostrils <'aph> the breath shamah> of life <chay>; and man <'adam> became a living <chay> soul <nephesh>.     Note, Life equals Dust+ Breath of Life from God= life. A souls is NOT any added on feature, that lives beyond life of body, breath of life return to He Who created it! Eccl,12:7 Anther lie of Satan men have swallowed since Genesis 3:4-5. 

    Ecclesiastes 9:4-5  For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

If none believe this, speak to God in prayer, He love to hear your opinion!

     Proverbs 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
They speak for themselves, do not these verses?

   So they are right, without their knowing it for this reason.....
    John 1:3-4  "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."
     John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
     John 1:17-18  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

........   On the other hand, maybe there something to this panspermia all after all and Francis Crick might have been far closer than he realized. According to the Bible {and Crick), life did not originate here on earth in and of itself. Instead, it was purposely formed (just as Crick spoke of) by a non-earthly power, (again al-la Crick).
     Instead of aliens in space ship, though, or microbes in comments the Bible teaches that God Himself was the ONE who created all life on this earth, just as the Genesis 1 depicts.

    Genesis 1:20  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
     Genesis 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    This idea is repeated all through the Bible,as we can see in.....

     Job 12:7-11  But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.  Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?

    Psalms 100:3-5  Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.

     Let's return to the creation of the man Adam...
     Genesis 2:7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
   This special action, took place, not in space, but right here on earth! Yet is shows that we are indeed, and i n point of fact created by an EXTRATERRESTRIAL BEING, and the Cross of Calvary shows just how much we each are loved!

NOTE(JB): Yes the Father-God giving His SON to die for our sins, is geatest sign of His love for each one of us! Sadly most know not of this, and many who do, could care..... less! Only Jesus Christ can bestow eternal life upon us! Proving evolution's ideas of theirs, as wrong,, if lucky love and then die to nothing!'

chapter 7 CONTINUED. Google would not allow me to advance on previous post JB

Continue post page 91.
Consider what happened when the great court of God convened in Heaven in the year of 1844. The first case would have been that of Abel, who was murdered by Cain his brother.   Yet as we are all sinners..... Romans 3:23 "...all have sinned, and come short of the glory that is God."
   Yet, he believed in the savior, and did as God required, he took a lamb and confessed his sins over it, slew the sacrifice. Thus as the Books are opened, in the which are all recorded sins, Jesus stood before God, pleading for Abel, "I have covered his sins with my blood, I want him in heaven with us." God the Father then looks at Jesus, and speaks, "Retain his name in the Book of Life"
    As we know not which name came next, but eventually Cain's name did. Now was he a religious man? Well he did murder his brother, yet Cain thought of self as righteous, and came to God with his thank offering, but he made no confession of sin , and in place of an animal for a blood offering he DECIDED, HE would gather up a few vegetables, and offer his OWN idea of a sacrifice to God> He even built an alter for it.
    Then he knelt down and prayed, asking God to accept his offering. God, however, had demanded a blood sacrifice, and refused to accept his substitute for sin. No one can ever earn salvation by his or her self's righteousness, as we have none!
     So as the Books are opened, could Jesus stand up for Cain? We know not, for we are not so told, however we can imagine Christ's sorrow, as He might say "Put his name in the Book of Death".
    And so forth it goes down through the ages for all of humanity.Each person MUST come before Jesus, as it has been outlined in this Sanctuary series, of studies, and in all honesty fully accept Christ ads their personal Savior, with loving obedience to His stated ways.
   The ONLY QUESTION LEFT IS: Have YOUR sins been covered by the blood of Jesus Christ?

   What about Y O U, my friend?  You being a person, who in man's eyes have lived a decent life, a law-abiding life, but Y O U did not obey God's rules for this life. Did Christ do anything for Y O U to save Y O U? 
   Jesus will point to the scars of His hands and feet, and says to the Father, "Father, I gave my life for that person, I died on Calvary, what more could I have done"? There's no obedience, no love for ME, and would not accept my sacrifice, and I cannot cover his sins with My blood.
    Slowly, but surely The Father-God says "Put this name in the Book of Death"!

Please know, the The Cleansing has not ever been this close to being finished. When it does it shall begin with the living, and when it is done, Probation will close, and sins no longer can be forgiven!
Thus each one of us shall stand or fall on our own merits, and chose which side we shall serve, God side or Man's side which is also Satan's side!

 for all those who think the rapture is secret and silent read on:  

     1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 " For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent{ come before them] them which are asleep.  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

     Revelation 1:7 " Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."

NOTE(JB): Just how much secrecy, can there be when every eye shall shall see Christ?  Or just how secret can it be with God shouting and millions of angles blowing their trumpets?
Yet, again I say "Never take the words of men, for the Word of God!"

(1) The Tribulations, of the trumps
(2) At this time span the Probation closes, and prayers shall not be answered.
(3) The SIXTH Trump is Satan's poor imitation of Christ, the Instead of Christ., Satan!
      2 Corinthians 11:14 " And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."

(4) The Last Trump, Christ's return, in the clouds, {He will not put His feet upon this earth, at this time, but stan, in his defacto body, shall walk upon this earth pretending to be Jesus! All T.V. cameras shall be on him,, 24/7 but do not even look at a T.V. in this scene!
(5) All the just will be resurrected and the living changed, and the angels will fly them up to Jesus for ever more!

(5 ) The unjust NEVER leave this earth!

     Revelation 20:6-7 " Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,"

Note(JB): 1,000 years this is the Millennium, Mille is Greek for 1,000 and Annum is year Mille Annum. Then the Final Judgment in which every knee shall bow, even Satan's, he is then forced to carry all human sins, as he and sins are tossed into the Lake of Fire's one time use!
Not at all the stories men have preached, now is it?

     Matthew 24:3-5  "And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."

Thanking Y O U, dear reader, for your time, and I pray that you'll not be able to be deceived, due to your Bible studies!

Chapter 7 "CHRIST IS THE ANSWER." L.M. NELSON- C.H.J. PUB. PP. 85-96.

 I need to thanks both the author and his publisher for this effort.  (John B)

    As we have pointed out  during this study, once a year the Earthly Sanctuary was cleansed, on the Day of Atonement. It was a great and solemn day for the children of Israel. It was also a particularly holy day,j as none was allowed to to work, any work on this day period. It was the keystone of the sacrificial system, for it was a direct pointing to Christ, yet to come then.
    Anyone, old enough to understand, was to prepare their soul, in making sure each sin had been taken to the Sanctuary, and thus separated him or her, form their sins., If this was not done they were to be cut-off, from the people of Israel.

     Leviticus 23:29-30 " For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people."

Note(JB) Think that God is not serious about the "NO WORK" days?  LOOK  Exodus 20:1  "And God spake all these words, saying,
    Exodus 20:8-9  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
     Exodus 20:10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:"

Now go and look at your calendar, and see which day is the seventh day , NEVER MIND WHAT MEN SAY OR DO LISTEN TO GOD'S WORD!

    Let's use our imagination, and think about what happened in 1844, the very first case, would be Abel, the Bible's first recorded victim., at his brother's hands, Cain.
    Remember Romans 3:23 ".. all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." 

   Revelation 18:2-4  "And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

    Revelation 21:7-8 " He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

JB : There is no salvation, nor a reprieve, from the second death, one is them Blotted -out, meaning removed from all living memories, as they have not ever existed!  Observe the Sabbaths, from Sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, not Sunday, as per Roman Babylon, only!

    And so the Day of Atonement was a very solemn occasion, for each had to self asses and examine that each and every sin had been confessed of and separated from the self unto the sacrifice, which today is Jesus Christ, in prayer and repentance and humbly seeking His forgiveness!

     Let us quickly remember once more the steps by which sin was separated from the sinner, and carried into the Sanctuary. The sinner must experience true contrition {be very sorrowful} for his or her sins, and repent { to turn away from that sin action] andeir hand upon its head , while confessing the sin(s) , and thereby transferring the sin to the animal. Then with their own hand, slay the animal, for the innocent victim must die for the sins.. Next, the priest had to catch the blood and now take it to the alter and put the a finger of blood on each of the four horns/corners, and then carry it inside and sprinkle it upon the veil. In this way was the sin both transferred and forgiven. After a long year of this one can understand the need for a cleansing, agree? Then the blood was sprinkled upon the Mercy seat, and the blood also was to be put upon the Scapegoat, thus symbolically removing all sin from the Tabernacle and into the this goat, that was led out to the wilderness, and left there to die. In this manner, the Sanctuary was annually cleansed, on The Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.

    This has been ongoing in the Heavenly Tabernacle  by our High Priest and Redeemer Jesus Christ, ever since 1844. One day, soon the God The Father will announce, "It is finished". And our Probation shall end and Heaven shall be emptied and on to this earth, as His Second coming!
   That's when Jesus shall standup, cat of His priestly garments and say...... "Revelation 22:11-12 " He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."

   However, today Satan is spreading aboard a new philosophy which is completely opposite and contrary to the Bible, and teachings about the Sanctuary services the and now! He has deceived many into thinking that all sins for all time will be "Wicked at" by God, and that our dsins shall not be discovered until Jesus comes.  But LOOK......
   Numbers 32:23  "But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out."

     Psalms 44:21 " Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart."

NOTE(JB): You can be sure of this fact:: There are no unknowns with God. He knows each sin, each crime's perpetrators, the truth of each lie, each half truth, is a full lie, and each omision is counted as a lie!. But as most young people, they think they have the rest of their life to get right with God The Father, thus are in no hurry, but please remember, nobody is sure of a tomorrow! There's many in our morgues that are there well before their time, due to an accident, or hit by a drunk driver, or shot by accident, or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Or perhaps you are among the deceived, and think, "Well I've been good to others, so at death I'll see Jesus in heaven. But look....

     Ecclesiastes 9:4-6  "For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
    Ecclesiastes 9:10 " Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest."

NOTE(JB): If this is not clear enough please look at this.... Genesis 3:19 " In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

However if you think as most have been taught, the body stays in the earth but the spirit goes up or down just read on:

    Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

MAN IS A WHAT?  a living soul, that all life that moves  and breathes is a soul"

Thus    DUST + Breath of Life = a living soul.   
Therefore at death we have Dust, as the breath of life return to He Who created it. 

    Ecclesiastes 12:7  "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."

  In Matthew 24 Jesus spoke directly as "Let no man deceive you by any means" three times and referred to deceptions two times all in one chapter make you think?

   Hebrews 9:27  "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

In order to be judged are we then not be among the living, evn those who died 1000's of years ago?
Read 1 Corinthians 15:50-55. for the answer.

    Daniel 7:9-10  "I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand 
stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened."

Chapter 6: "CHRIST the Advocate" L.M. Nelson- C.H.J. Pub. pp 76-84.

My many and sincere thanks to the two named entities for this work. (John B).

    In chapter four as we studied, Daniel 8:14 we discovered  some amazing facts concerning a prophecy that covered some 2,300 years, of this world's history, written about 500,  years before Christ! In fact one part of this very prophecy is the 1260 year portion that showed Rome as the persecuting power, from 538 A.D  [ Daniel 7:8. she removed the three powers-horns, thus ruled unopposed] through to 1798 A.D. when France's Napoleon's General Berthier took the Pope prisoner, disbanded the Vatican civil powers at that time, This not not restored to her until 1927 by Benito Mussolini and Gaspari, in the treaty of that year. This is the why the Vatican now has over 80 embassies in her boarders, and a seat at the U.N. the ONLY church on earth has this! Because she is a sovereign nation of 114 Acres, that wants to rule the world! Read Rev.13:2 know that Satan is this dragon, NOW THINK! The Bible has given us all the knowledge we need for our safety in salvation.

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

     We also learned, that this great foretelling, was to be divided into two parts, twp sections of time.The first covered, the 490 days/years, and the second covered the remaining 1810 years.....

    "......then shall the Sanctuary be cleansed." 

    However, before we make the same mistake as many did in 1844 A.D. we must make sure, and understand WHICH Sanctuary shall be cleansed, agee?  You may recall, there were TWO Sanctuaries at that time, ONE, which Moses guided the building of it, and latter The Solomon temple in Jerusalem, which continued just beyond the Time of Christ on this earth, and the ONE ORIGINAL built without hands, in Heaven!

     Hebrews 9:1-9  "Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.  For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.  And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercy-seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;"

   The time period covered by this first Covenant [as in contract] , Paul has told us of the Sanctuary that was here on earth. He describes it in the these verses:

     Hebrews 9:2-5 " For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.  And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly."

  Note (JB):Therefore, none should confuse the two Tabernacles, the Original in Heaven and the copy on this earth., that was no more since A.D.70.

     The earthy Tabernacle {Hebrew for tent, as it was made to be portable}, services were preformed until the day when Solomon's Temple was built; then continued in it. Later, in the days of Zechariah the Prophet, the temple was rebuilt, because the Babylonian's destroyed this temple. This was the Temple in the days that Jesus walked upon this earth, until Rome removed it and destroyed the nation, and renamed it Palestine in 70 A.D

Note (JB):  Does this not negate the Arab's claim, of ancestral homelands, when the jews had another 1,000 years of occupancy?  Ishmael, Abraham's son with his wife Sarah' slave Koturah, he is NOT the child of the Promise!
       Genesis 16:11-12  "And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.  And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."
   Now know there shall not ever be "PEACE", in this region, between the Jew and the Arab, until Jesus' return!

  As you recall, from the previous chapters, the ENTIRE SANCTUARY SERVICE was symbolic of Christ's Priestly Ministry and Christ was represented in each and every Sacrifice. From the daily, to the yearly Day of Atonement, all this was but a "Shadow" that point to Jesus Christ's self sacrifice, yet to come, at that time!
      We should also remember that each and every article connected with the sanctuary, pointed to the Lord Jesus Christ as our Redeemer:
THE GOLDEN CANDLESTICK: Symbolic of Jesus, John 8:12  "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
THE TABLE OF SHEWBREAD:John 6:35  "And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."
THE ALTER OF INCENSE: Revelation 8:4  "And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand" Symbolic of the Holy Spirit*

*note (jb):  If can think of God, The Father, as a TRANSMITTER, then the Holy Spirit, that can....note can upon our invite, dwell within, as HIS,  RECEIVER do not ask me how, God said it, and I accept it, in this manner, for my understanding.

THE MERCY SEAT:  symbolic of God's Throne depicts our atonement, and His grace, via the Blood of Christ.
THE ALTER OF BURNT OFFERINGS:  served to represent Christ's sacrifice. He who freely offered Himself up to die for us all, willingly.
THE LAVER;  which pointed to Christ as the ONE Who cleanses us and makes us acceptable before the very presence of our great Father-God!

     Is it not a marvelous revelation that the entire Sanctuary service was symbolic of Christ's Priestly ministry?  He was represented in every sacrifice, and in each and every step of the service, and fulfilled both phases of the Priesthood-- the first by dying for fallen ma n, and the second by pleading before the Father for each and every repentant sinner, that confessed their sins.. But all of these things... the articles and the furnishings of the earthly Sanctuary, as well as the system of animal sacrifices performed by the earthly priests, all this came to and end when Christ, The Lamb of God, hung on the Cross, and dying when He cried, "IT IS FINISHED"; and the Inner veil of the Temple was ripped from the top to the bottom, by unseen hands!  This represented Christ's body being torn in death.

Note(JB): The torn veil, represented, man's ability to in prayer, approach the Throne of God, in the name of Jesus, to petition the Father. Humans no longer need a prophet, nor a human priest, to speak for them.

   Hebrews 8:1-2 " Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man."

  It is this Sanctuary that is to be cleaned, and finished just prior to the close of PROBATION. This is where Jesus is now meditating on our behalf. Can you now understand, that the earthly Sanctuary, as for the time frame covered by the Old Testament, but the Heavenly Sanctuary is covering the New Testament, the new and everlasting Covenant. This was put into place with Christ's blood and His human life, and the Heavenly Sanctuary took the place of the earthly one that was fully destroyed i n 70 A.D.
     The earthly priests had ministered until Christ was crucified, when the Lamb of God offered up His life once and for all, Jesus entered the Heavenly sanctuary as our eternal High Priest.

     Hebrews 8:8-10 " For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:"

    The priests, under the old Covenant performed their ministry in relationship to the Ten Commandments. So, Jesus Christ, our permanent High Priest, now in Heaven, will under the same laws, the same Ten Commandment, the Original Law of God.Yet, what is He saying, or telling us in the above passage?
    We are under a new contract, a new Covenant in where He will write His laws onto our hearts and minds, so He is saying: "I will give you a new heart, and write my laws in your heart."
     However, He did not say "I will abolish my covenant, and give you a new law"  and neither did He say "I will give grace to supercede the Ten Commandments."  What God is telling all is... trying to convey that He will write His law in our hearts/minds and bring our lives into conformity to His precepts, IF WE ALLOW IT! It's really all that simple, as all who desire eternal life, with loving obedience, shall gain it.

   Thus we can know, that Jesus pleads our case before the Father with His pierced hands and shed blood, on our repentant self.
      1 John 2:1-2  "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."

Note(JB)" There's none going to Heaven with Jesus, at His Second Coming, unless they have allowed Christ's blood and His righteousness, to cover their manifold sins.

     In other words: Jesus is saying: "Father, my blood, my blood, I have shed my blood for those, and those who love me, for these dear ones I claim by the merits of my sacrifice, on Calvary, and plead that You Father, accept My sinless life for these sinful lives."

Yet we must always remember this:  Hebrews 7:25-26  "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;"

Note(JB): The "HE" is of course Jesus Christ, our High eternal priest.

     From 34 A.D. until 1844 Christ ministered within the first apartment, the Most Holy unit, as per the new Covenant. In 1844, Christ entered within the Veil, into the Most holy of holies, the Second Apartment, just as the earthly priests did annually, on the Day of Atonement, to cleanse the earthly sanctuary.
     This is what we read in Daniel 8:14:
     Daniel 8:14  "And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
    So Christ entered the Second Apartment in 1844 to finish the mediatorial work,, to becoming our
advocate. Thus very soon, Jesus is going to be finished, and He will cast down His censer, as our Great High Priest, and He shall say.......
      Revelation 22:10-12 " And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."

   At that point in time, our probation closes, and our appeals to Heaven shall not reach it. For all the times since 1844, to present, Jesus has been cleansing the Sanctuary, first for the Just dead, that shall arise at His return, and soon, all the living, shall be judged...
   Hebrews 9:28 " So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

  If Y O U ans I, were able to see Heaven's Record Books,, we'd feel helpless and hopeless, BUT for Christ' sacrifice and effort, ALL who have confessed their sins ain repentance, to these Jesus will say: "I will blot out their sins, as I have covered them all with my Blood"
     Yet none should dare to presume their own salvation, without confessions of their sins for they shall hear.....

    "Depart from me,ye that work iniquity {lawlessness], I never knew thee."   Matthew 7:23 +/-. They will bear their own guilt, and be lost as they are cast into the Lake of Fire, and be instantly died and reduced to ashes.

NOTE (JB):  Jesus Christ, HE alone can save us, none other, and man-made edifice, nor church, nor human priest is able, all that is but "Tradition of men"..

    Matthew 15:3 " But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?"
     Matthew 15:6  "And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition."
     Mark 7:9 " And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition."
     Mark 7:13 " Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye"
      Colossians 2:8 " Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.."
      1 Peter 1:18" Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;"

It is the Roman Catholic Church, and its allies in Ecumenicalism, are the most tradition bound, in fact Rome holds it own historical writings above that of the Bible, which is the reason they differ so much in doctrine from the Bible! Plus the why of these verses.........

Revelation 18:2-4" And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues"

Revelation 13:2 " And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.:

   2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 " Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

1 John 2:18 " Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."

Note(JB) this suffers from a poor translation, instead of against of anti, it should read in place of, or instead of Christ, That's Satan's attempt to deceive.

Lastly this verse:
Daniel 7:25-26  "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end."

NOTE(JB):  There's but ONE and only one religious power on earth that all of Daniel 2, 7th  chapters points to,  and that is the Vatican's leadership! They even claim, to have the God-given powers to change God's laws! And they have done so! Even with the Ten Commandments the second the fourth, and the 10th split into two due to the second's elimination, but only in their Catechism books! They discourage us reading the Bible! It's far too  complicated for us folks Thus they use a dead language Latin or the pagan Roman empire!
    They have been playing us for nearly 2,000 years, and Daniel 7:25-26  "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end."

    Daniel 2:45 " Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure."

The Stone...Jesus Christ our ROCK!
Destroy it unto the end.... When He Jesus returns, He will put an total end to this Power that mixed civil and church in one rule, before and and shall again near the end....

    Revelation 13:2 " And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."
   Revelation 13:16-17  "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

This church ruled State and Church as one, where ever they had a church, on earth, just as they did in the Dark Ages!. The last Court of Inquisition closed its doors in 1890, i n Peru! That's 128 years ago! She has not changed one iota of her laws and doctrines, only she says otherwise, and just as Satan , they lie alike a cheap rug!

Chapter 5: Sanctuary made simple. L. M. Nelson + C.H.J. PUBLISHING PP.62-75.

My many thanks to both the Author and his Publisher. (John B)
The second printing was in 1997. CHJ Publishing 1103 West Main Middleton, Idaho 83644. They may still have some books on hand John B.

NOTE(JB): Would anyone disagree with this statement... "Earth has been contaminated by sin, as all humans are sinners, when judged against the Ten Commandments in their fullest meaning"?
   Who, in their right mind would this sin ,and all the grief and heartache it causes, to continue in Heaven forever?  Who would want to be there? This is the reason why, no sin, nor a sinner, be allowed entry in the Kingdom! There shall not be sin...period! As God knows our hearts and reads our thoughts! Thus none shall con God Now to the story!

    Let us mention again that one of the most fundamental factors of the Christian life is CONVERSION, {of the heart/mind/character}. Every professed Christian needs to experience the peace of mind that conversion brings. This is indeed the longing of the heart. Repentance and conversion is urged by Peter as a prerequisite to the  blotting out of sins. The blotting out, or the overcoming of sins, is another very important factor in the plan of God's Salvation.

NOTE(JB): For this we need to daily, or as often as needed, to invite the Holy Spirit, into our minds, as we can't do none of this by our own powers. We need to pray and ask for Heaven's help, daily!

   The foundation for this chapter's study is found in...
     Acts 3:19 " Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;"

Note (JB) Please note the when, this event will occur in the course of human's search, for truth, remember people lie, God can't! Satan can only lie steal deceive, and kill, God uses only love and truth, but men pervert both the Bible and what it stands for, Christian Faith.We need only to look at all the different churches, that use the Word og God, to suit their own interpretations, YET the Bible proves itself, within itself,  but they delete, change or ignore many parts. Read Revelation's 22 last few verses!

       When we realize, within, that we can't have true "Peace of Mind", unless and until we are assured, that all our wrongs are forgiven and blotted out, and we by the powers of self, can not do this alone!

NOTE(JB) The Hebrew word "Blotted OUT", means in reality, as if never existed, the same term is used for all those who refuse to accept Christ as their Savior, Blotted Out! Thus the ones who love their sins, in the end, it shall be as if you never ever lived, nor existed! Is that empty or what?
    This time has been defined by inspiration as the time of judgment, the Latter Rain, from the Holy Spirit and then the sealing of persons.. This comes to us only from Heaven's powers.
    If is for these reasons we, each, must study carefully, what takes place within the Sanctuary, concerning the sins which have been brought in by virtue of christ's blood and His work of Substitution.....

     Hebrews 9:6-7 " Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:"

     Who ministered in the First Apartament? The Priest. How often? Every day. Who went into the most Holy Place the Holy of Holies" Only the High Priest. How often? Only once a Year on Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement.  What did he take with him? He took the atoning blood. You see, the path into the sanctuary is a blood-stained path, and inside there's more blood, on the horns of brazen alter,j and there's blood on the Mercy Seat. The Blood always represents the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. This is brought out very beautifully in the Great Controversy, page 416.

   "His (Christ's) intercession is that of a pierced sine, the the marred feet plead for the fallen man, whose redemption was purchased at such infinite cost."

     This, the earthly Sanctuary had to be purified, or cleansed by the blood of animals. But not the Heavenly Sanctuary!

    Hebrews 7:27 " Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself."

    This refers, of course, to the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and the shedding of His blood..not pp 417-418  IBID.    "The cleansing, both in the typical and in the real service, must be accomplished with blood: In the former, with the blood of animals, in the latter, with the blood of Christ."
    Hebrews 9:22  "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission."

What is remission? Ellen White continues: "Remission  of sin, is the work to be accomplished."

     Hebrews 9:23-24  "It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:"
    The words highlighted, above are just so comforting, to me and should be to Y O U as well. For it tells us, that Jesus was NOT just "LOANED" to us for a few years, some 2,000 years ago, as a gift, but even forever! When He ascended back to Heaven He did so as our Older Brother, to personally present us to The Father. Therefore as He entertd Heaven, He carried all sins of the world, by virtue of His blood into the First Apartment, of the Heavenly Sanctuary, of which the earthly was but a copy! BUT NOW NOTE THE CHANGE. Once a year the High Priest went into the second apartment. Just so, Christ entered into the second Apartment in 1844 A.D.
     Now a question: "How often did the high priest, go into the Second Apartment, the Most Holy of Holies? Only Once A Year! Will Jesus Christ do this every year?
     NO! Absolutely not. Why not? He will do this once, and in the times of the end! He shall continue His work, His ministry in the Holy Apartment, until His work is finished.  Read.......

     Hebrews 9:26 " For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."

Note(JB): in the end of the world, This word used as end, is the Greek word Sunteleia [ soon-tel'-i- ah] 4931 String's, entire completion; Consummation of a dispensation (of time).. A careful reading of Revelation will show all, that this same earth, shall be the heaven of eternity.[Revelation 21: 1-2.] It is for this reason we can say "Only those with Christ within will ever leave this planet, the wicked never shall!
Note also the underlined: He ..Jesus, put away sin by the Sacrifice of Himself." In Hebrews 9:26.

This term to put away, is the same used in the Bible to describe a man putting away his wife i n a divorce! So you see, that Jesus is in the business, of "Divorcing " us from all our sins, from His won, in this the the times of the end of this dispensation.. There's no other way to secure this earth, from Satan's grasp, sin.No peace conferences by the U.N, will last, in fact as of 12/2017, This U.N has put 20 some odd, declarations of wrongs against Israel, and none against the their constant antagonists the Palestinians! Note.....

    Genesis 27:29 " Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee."
Note(JB): All that have Christ's Spirit within are "Spiritual Israelis," thus grafted int the Tree of Israel, therefore this covers all true believers. Can you not see how of the "peace of mind," He gives, the world can't match?

This world shall not know peace, until He returns, after the final Judgment is rendered!  So+what's been going on in Heaven that we can know about?   Since 1844 our High Priest Jesus has been preforming the work of the Investigative Judgement, and making atonements for all who are shown to be entitled to its benefits.
   In the book, "The Great Controversy," p. 422 we read:   "This is the termination of the 2300 days in 1844, Christ then entered the most Holy place  (The First Apartment) to preform the closing work of atonement preparatory, to His  return ." (Second coming.)
IBID p.421: "This is the service which began when the 2300 days ended. mAt the time, as foretold by daniel the prophet, our High Priest entered the most Holy, to preform the last division of His solemn work- to cleanse the Sanctuary.
      Plus in Testimonies, Vol. 5, P 520 are these challenging words: "The sacred work of christ for the people of God that is going on at the present time in the Heavenly Sanctuary should be our constant study,"

    From all these references we can see there was a big difference between what when on in the Two Apartments. In the first apartment, the sins of the penitent were transferred into the Sanctuary, by the substitute. Bur in the Second apartment, the Most Holy of Holies, the blood was sprinkled upon the Mercy Seat, in order to erase or blot out the sin. This is what took place during the Annual day of Atonement.....
       Leviticus 16:5  "And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering."
    There we discovered what the ancient priest did in the most holy place ( 2nd Apartment) note that there's two goats!  They were brought in to the nmpriest, and lots were cast to see which one would represent the Lord's goat and which one would represent the Scapegoat, or Azazel (The devil) .

    Leviticus 16:7-10  "And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.  And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.  But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. "

AS the "Scapegoat" was symbolic of Satan, the people could see and learn that the devil shall not always be with us, he shall die,at God's time.

    Leviticus 16:12-16 " And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail: And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not: And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the veil and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat: And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness."

SMOKE: from the candelabra, and the alter of Incense,, are both symbolic of the Holy Spirit.
     So, Blood of the Lord;s goat was taken into the Sanctuary, into the second apartment ,the most holy of holies, and sprinkle it on the Mercy Seat and before the Mercy Seat. Yet that's not all...
    Leviticus 16:20-22  "And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:  And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness."

    Let's look at how Ellen White puts this in Patriarchs and Prophets P.356. "On tje Dsa\y of Atonement, the High Priest, having taken an offering for the congregation, went into the most holy place with the blood and sprinkled it upon the Mercy Seat, above the tables of the law. Thus the claims of the law, which demanded the life of the sinner, were satisfied. Then, in his character of mediator, the priest took the sins upon himself, and, leaving the Sanctuary, he bore with him the burden of Israel's guilt. At the door of the tabernacle, he laid his hands upon the head of the scapegoat,... And as the goat bearing these sins was sent away, as they were with him, regarded as forever separated from the people. Such was the service performed "unto the example and shadow of Heavenly things"

   The scapegoat represented Satan, so, in the final act taking place on the Day of Atonement, the scapegoat was led into the wilderness, and left there to die!

Note(JB): When our Savior Jesus returns,all the just will be resurrected, and the living will be changed "in the blink of an eye", 1 Corinthians 15:50 -55. and the unjust will perish, all shall be upon this earth with Satan and his unholy angels, for a 1,000 years. During this time the just shall be with Jesus, learning why so and is there, but he nor she is there, and why and why not! After the 1,000 years {The Millennium] Satan will again rule all of the unjust, who are now resurrected, with same body and illnesness the died with, and will surround the New Jerusalem {rev. 21:2} in a attempt to steal
brimstone /sulfur, and purify this earth by fire, while Jesus has then transferred all sins upon Satan, who shall be cast into this Lake of Fire! Along with all the Unjust!

    After the 1,000 years, i n the fires of the Second death.......
     Revelation 21:8 " But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

........  Satan and all his shall receive the punishment of the Second death, not only for his own sins, but for the sins of all the redeemed saints, that were placed upon his head in the closing act of the Final Atonement. We are told in the Spirit of Prophecy that he shall suffer longer than any other being.
    May I paint this picture for you? We are watching a man, leading a scapegoat away from the sanctuary.
    Because the scapegoat has upon it the, confessed and forsaken sins of God's own people. Who placed them on the scapegoat? The high priest. Where did the priest get these sins? It is interesting to note that he carried a portion of the sins in his own body: because according to the instructions, sometimes he was to eat part of the burnt sacrificial offering. The other sins he carried from the Holy Place of the Sanctuary. Do Y O U remember hows the sins came to be there?  Yes, they were put there by means of the blood that was carried into the sanctuary by the priest.. These were the sins that the sinner had confessed over the head of the Substitute. Thus, transferring the sins to the Substitute, and the lamb, or the sacrifice offered.and slain by the sinner. So now we can see that there are two steps that must be taken i n separating sin from the sinner.
      First, the sin must be transferred from the sinner, into the First compartment, of the Sanctuary, and in the Second Apartment, the second step there is a work to be done getting those sins out of the Sanctuary.
     Here's a simple illustration of the separation process. Every City has a laundry and on Monday's, we shall find people bringing in their laundry's dirty clothing to be cleaned. That's what the a laundry does , right? Paul used the same idea in....
    Ephesians 5:25-29 " Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:"

     The Sanctuary therefore gives us a "Laundry service, for the "Church", enabling the people of God to be cleansed so they can welcome the return of the Lord, without fear His return! The Church members are to be waiting for His return... fully washed and clean, of sins.  BUT God and God only can wash and cleanse us from all sins, this NO MAN can do! Therefore it MUST be up to us as individuals, to make sure that ALL our dirty laundry gets to God's Laundromat, to be fully cleaned, and no dirty  clothes are left in the hamper, period!
    Seeing there no earthly Tabernacle today, how are we to do this?
     Verily [truly], it is by our repenting, and giving up our sins, and then asking our High Priest Jesus Christ, to take them away from us! We must go, by faith, to Calvary and behold Jesus, shedding His blood for you and all others.Then , by faith, we must follow our Resurrected Savior as He stansfers our sins through the efficacy of His Blood to the Heavenly Sanctuary. Then, on the Final Day of Atonement [ JB , this shall be at the close of man's Probation Period] the Jesus will, asw He sprinkles His blood upon the Mercy Seat, and blots out every trace of even our record of sins! In His last act He will carry the from the sanctuary, and place them upon the Scapegoat, ... Satan!

    Here comes a big..big question: "Why is ti when we confess our sins, they are are not blotted out then and there?
     Let's try this: Pretend that I am holding a whiteboard, and I write i n it the word SIN. Can you see it, i n your mind? The word, represents a sin, of a man, that's just come to the lord Jesus, and seeks forgiveness. What does Jesus then do? The Lord's desire, it that this man never "sees", this sin again, so He takes the sin into the Sanctuary and sprinkles His blood over it. If you could look into the record of heaven now, you would find that this sin is indeed covered with the priceless blood of Jesus. The ma n is forgiven, and is pardoned,, To illustrate this, suppose I take a handkerchief and hold it over the word sin. Now you can't see the word.
     Because it is covered by the handkerchief, SIN is still there... So, there is something further that must be done! The word SIN, must be erased, or blotted out. Now imagine that I take the same handkerchief and erase the word SIN, from the whiteboard, it's no longer there, no longer visible!

      Psalms 32:1 " Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered."

    Dear reader , when we confess, repent, and ask for forgiveness, and do this with all honesty, the sin is removed! Our Heavenly record, has been overwritten  by the word, PAID IN FULL BY JESUS CHRIST.

     Acts 3:19-21  "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began."

    This should,nay MUST,tell all, that before Jesus returns again, He is going to "Blot out" the sins that have been covered, provided, of course, that you and I have met the conditions. Look at Jacob from Patriarchs and Prophets p.202 for the conditions of Salvation:
    "Had not Jacob previously repented of his sin in falsely obtaining his birthright, by fraud, God could not have heard his prayer and mercifully preserved his life."


    "SO,  in the time of trouble, [the tribulations of the time of the end] if the people of God had unconfessed sins to appear before them, while tortured with fear and anguish, they would be over-whelmed; despair would cut off their faith, and they could not have the confidence to plead with God for deliverance. But while they have a deep sense of their unworthiness, they will have no concealed wrongs to reveal.
     Their sins will have been blotted out by the atoning blood of Christ and they cannot bring them into remembrance!

   IBID:   "Satan leads many to believe that God will overlook their unfaithfulness in the minor affairs of life; but the Lord shows in his dealing with Jacob, that He in no wise sanction or tolerate evil,[JB no matter how small ,or light] All who endeavor to excuse or conceal their sins, and permit them to remain on the Books of Heaven, unconfessed and unforgiven, will be overcome by Satan!"

     Revelation 20:12-13  "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."

Note(JB):  I have used tobacco, for some 40 years, and I told many, many times, "Oh I can quit anytime I want" Yes even several times in one day" Yet is was not until my wife, since 1961, got ill, and quite smoking, that I got on my knees, after tossing out all the fixings, including lighters and ash trays, and ask The Father in Jesus' name to remove this craving from me. This was at least 15 years ago, and to this day, I've not ever unconsciously reached in my shirt pocket for another fix! Thank YOU FATHER! I was amazed at the better taste of all foods, and that fact that neither of us smell like old dirty ashtrays! Have YOU seen the price of a pack of smokes lately?

   You may ask, does prayer help? Well as the Dad, of an alcoholic son, who has lost more that a few good jobs, and is still today looking foe life's answers in the bottoms of a bottle or can, prayers has not yet dried-up his "thirst". but at least I know that all we can do is to keep loving him, and praying for him to find that alcohol has no answers in it!

  I. L. M. Nelson, must tell you that Jesus Christ is now in the heavenly sanctuary for the purpose of taking sin out of our lives.
Because, He bore our sins i n His body on the Cross, and continues to bear our sins until he completion of the Final Atonement, when He places them upon the head of Satan, just before he is cast into the lek of Fire, when death and sin shall never ever arise again!
    It is only possible through the Christ's actions, that the bands of sin can be broken. It is only through Christ's work in the heavenly Sanctuary, with our co-operation, that sin can be separated from the sinners, for the eternity!

Thanking Y O U for your time.

Chapter 4. Sanctuary made simple. by Nelson L.M. and C.H. J. Publishing PP.47-59

As always my many thanks to the Author and his Publisher.(John B).

    Psalms 32:1  "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered."

NOTE(IB): Please understand, that none can "Transfer" their sins,and still keep them!

  This chapter features Christ as the Mathematician, and will, present even more evidence of the perfect wisdom and knowledge of our God, and His love and care for each of us  WHY??

    Romans 5:8 " But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Now about that?

     Mathematics, the most known to mankind! It is the tool we shall use, to present, to Y O U, dear reader, as we explore one of the most evidence ofj and for the perfect wisdom of our God, and His loving-watch-care, for us all. We shall prove and explore one of the most profound prophecies in the Bible. We shall establish by Mathematical proof that Jesus was, and still is the Messiah, The Anointed One, and, The Holy One of Israel, the Savior of this world. This proof has its foundations in Bible Prophecy and events relating to the Sanctuary service.
    Who would dare to predict what will happen one year from now? Or even a week, or a day? Concerning the events that shall take place on this earth? Yet it was the Word of God, The Holy Bible, boldly predicted, nearly 500 years in advance, the exact year when Christ would begin to cleanse the Sanctuary in Heaven, before He returns to take His people home!
  W e shall begin in Daniel the 8th chapter. Here Daniel is given a vision of shall take place at a latter date.We will read from his account, of how the Angel was commissioned to explain every detail of this vision, so that he might fully understand it......
     Daniel 8:14 " And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."

Note(JB): Daniel knew the Old Testament very well, and he knew that Israel was getting close to her 70 years of captivity in Babylon, so you can know the reason that Daniel was troubled! Notice....

     Daniel 8:16 " And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision."

Daniel was so overwhelmed, that he fainted 8 :17,.....
    Daniel 9:19-23 " O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.  And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.  At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision."

   Then the Angel Gabriel, returned {did you notice that when Daniel prayed, that the order was given, to the angel to have his fully understand all this?) The He began to explain this vision of the 8th Chapter.
      Daniel 9:24 " Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."

     Please make note, of the first two words SEVENTY WEEKS,. This is measurement of time. agree?
Thus Gabriel continues: Seventy weeks are determined upon they people.... This refers to the time when Israel was indeed God's chosen people, as they were placed at the THEN cross-roads of the known world, thus able to show God's Grace to all, but they did not share the Word with others! This dealt with the nation, and....."Determined upon thy people, and upon thy holy city ..." This was the Jews and their capital Jerusalem..
  Please know the Hebrew word "Determined", in the original Hebrew, means to "Cut-Off". In other words the seventy weeks are a part of, a segment of the total 2300 days., which we3re allotted to the Jews.... T^o what end?
  Read again 24th verse.... to finish the transgression, and MAKE AN END OF SINS...or they would be CUT-OFF.

     REMEMBER?  Luke 13:35 " Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."   [Matthew 23:38] The Jews today still reject Jesus as the Messiah, but the Messianic Jews   WHO   "Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord"  There's no more salvation in NATIONALITY, NOR HERITAGE! Only in Christ Jesus.

   Now we must turn to mathematics, for our first math problem. We have 2300 days, and from this number,as a total, we must subtract 70 weeks, but wait! So we must use numbers that are equal in value, and change the weeks into day, knowing that 7 days a week makes thus 70 weeks x 7 days = 490 days which must be subtracted from the 2300 days.  2300 - 490 = 1810 days, as the remainder of the Prophecy.
     Now you can see that the 2300 days were divided into two unequal sections of time. The first section, 490 days were allotted to the Jews, The second section os 1810 days were allotted to the Gentiles...

NOTE(JB):...." Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles."
    This was the and still is the Jews , and every one's free-will choice!

    This exercise in math will allow us to discover the the year of the "Cleansing of the Heavenly Sanctuary's" beginning!

  However we are still in need of two pieces of information, the actual time frame of a prophetic day, PLUS the exact staring date. A Prophetic day ids a year, of 360 days in the Jewish calendar, that they came from Babylon with. The Word gives us this requirement as well.....
    Ezekiel 4:6  "And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. "

    Numbers 14:34 " After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise."

NOTE(JB): This was their punishment for disobedience, and they spent the next 40 years wandering in the wilderness, until all but two people had died.

   Thus by the Word, a day for a year is used only in prophecy. Therefore 2300 days are 2300 years, so this first 490 years is for was for the Hews to stop sinning. The remainder 1810 years for the Gentiles, and the beginning the cleansing of the Heavenly Sanctuary.  However we still need to have a beginning or a starting date, right? As the 2300 years has no meaning until we know the beginning date, agree?

    Daniel 9:25 " Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times."

  We learn that this decree, to rebuild both the Jerusalem and the Temple, in Ezra 6:14...
   Ezra 6:14  "And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia."

    From man's historical records, we know these three kings ruled and that clay tablets have been found and translated we know this date was the year of 457 B. C. (Before Christ)  Can this be so?

   Ezra 7:12-28  "Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time.  I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee. Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven counsellors, to enquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which is in thine hand;  And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem, And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem: That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem. And whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God. The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem. And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the king's treasure house. And I, even I Artaxerxes the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily, Unto an hundred talents of silver, and to an hundred measures of wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much.  Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?  Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims,[ temple servants] or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them. And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not. And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.  Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem: And hath extended mercy unto me before the king, and his counsellors, and before all the king's mighty princes. And I was strengthened as the hand of the LORD my God was upon me, and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me."

Note(JB)" POur Creator leaves us with, all we need, in order to know, all we need to know! Did you catch the fact, that Babylon supplied the resources and the materials need to rebuilt it all? God will take care of you and me!

Now that we know both the time and the beginning, we can do more simple math, right?

     Daniel 9:25 " Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troubled times."
WE have:    7 weeks + 60 weeks + 2 weeks = 69 weeks
                   69 weeks X 7 days in a week = 483 days/years.- 457 date of decree=26 + 1* + 27 A.D.
* plus 8-9 months since the decree was issued in the fall of the year, and Jewish reckoning that any part of a day, or a year was counted as a whole day or year.Know there is not a year in 0-1, from B.C. to A.D.
   So what occurred in the fall of 27 A.D.?  Jesus was Baptized and began His 3.5 years of ministry!

     Matthew 3:13-17 " Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

Noye(JB):  John the Baptist, recognized he was in the presence of a Holy One, and shrank from grating the Baptism, declaring that he himself is in need of Jesus baptizing him! Then the Holy Spirit is used within John, who then shouts:..
   John 1:29-30  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. "
The bold letter part, had to come from God, agree? How could John have known that Jesus was eternal, otherwise?

   John then leads Jesus to the river Jordan,, and "BURIES" Jesus under the water, and brings Him back up, out of the water. {No Sprinkling here!)
   Luke 3:21-22 "Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased."

Luke continues on with the ancestral blood line of God-Man Jesus. It is from His allowing Himself to be born of a woman, that Jesus became a flesh-man, who was still also God! Thus also why He Jesus, is called God's Son, just as we are Sons and Daughters of The Father-God!  After this Anointing and the 40 days spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, Jesus began his work in the fall of 27 A.D.JUST AS PROPHECY INDICATED! The year? 483 time frame was fulfilled, in the fall of 27 A.D.

    Mark 1:15 "And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."

    The words" The time is fulfilled.." , tells us that He Jesus knew all about the prophecy of Daniel, and why not? For it He Himself, through the Angel Gabriel, that had instructed Daniel, that it would be i n 69 weeks after the decree that He would commence His work, and preach "The Time is fulfilled".

    Yes, we have Mark 1:15  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.e many who have claimed the power to know the future, and many have had a little success. However if Y O U and I each make say 1,000 predictions, we'd both guess right at about the same rate sway 3 percent, which is around the same success rate of humans. God's hitting a 100 percent! And on  time as well!
    We are now, in this study, at 27 A.D. which brings us to the end of the 69 weeks, leaving us with one more week, or seven years! We just can't forget about it, or to put it in another time frame now can we, if we do so, are mixing apples and oranges, ands calling the results a banana, which is in total error! Agree?

Lets read Daniel 9:24's "70 weeks are determined upon they people..." and then verse....27 "...and HE shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease."

Note(JB) Confirm the Covenant, There had to be a NEW Covenant, a new CONTRACT between Heaven and mankind, as with His death the animal sacrifices and the feast days, were now come to the fulfillment in Jesus' death and resurrection. This is the LAW that was NAILED to His Cross, the Ceremonial laws! NOT THE TEN PILLARS! All who teach we are not under the Law but under Grace, teach a DISGRACE!

    Now when we cut a week, or in this prophecy, a period of seven years, in half, what's the results? Two periods of 3.5 years agree?  Remember one day for a year?
    Notice Daniel 9: 26.. "...And He shall be cut-off, but not for Himself..."
    Even the Roman Governor, who sentenced Him to die said, I find no fault in Him" [ John 19:6]  Thus He was CUT-OFF, but not for Himself, friend, but for Y O U and me.
    Can Y O U, dear reader, not help but see the great love Heaven has for us all? Remember Jesus chose to become the Lamb slain, before the foundations of this earth were lain, therefore both Jesus and The Father-God lived with this knowledge for 4,000 years before the fact!  THINK on this!....

    Isaiah 53:4-6 " Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

  NOTE(JB):  Have Y O U friend, not ever read, that at His death, at 3 in the afternoon, it turned dark, as if midnight, and the vial of the Temple was rent from top to bottom, by an unseen hand? That signalled that all in prayers, could come before God in Christ Jesus, right to the Throne of Mercy. The Temple priests quickly sowed it back together again! Thus then and now many continue to deceive us from the Pulpits, and why we have 1,000's of so-called "Christian Denomination! " Men want to do this MY WAY!  Read Genesis 2:1-3 and Exodus 20:8-11,  31:17  
Luke 4:14-16 " And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read."
   JOHN 14:15 "If YOU love me, obey my commandments!  {Christ's words!} The Sabbath is the SEVENTH DAY, for it is HIS Memorial to us for His creation week! But the men in Rome has other ideas! We did it MY WAY!

Remember this passage?  John 19:30  "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

What is the IT? That part of of the overall prophecy is come to pass, as written, thus finished!  We have established that He was Baptized in 27 A.D.  Thus 27 + 3.5 days/years = 30-1/2 years or Spring of 31 A.D. for His death.

What happened other than His death on the cross, as per the Word?  The Veil was ripped from the top to the bottom by an unseen hand, signifying that the earthly sacrifices no longer had any meaning. The sacrifice of the Lamb of God was completed and it was finished.
      Mark 15:37-39 " And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God."

NOTE(JB): Remember Christ died at the 3rd watch or 3 P.M. and at His cry, it became totally dark and a earthquake at the same time, no wonder why the Roman soldier said what he did!

    Look, for some 1,500 years, the Jews had faithfully been offering lambs for sacrifice morning and evening. If they had only bothered to study the Word, that was given to them, they'd known all this, even to the very year,, the month, and date day and even the hour when Christ ended His sacrifice with His death, of the flesh part of Him! BUT NO! Even 300j years latter, they put a curse an anyone who did figure the numbers in Daniel! A curse in the most vile words they had.

   However this brings us to explain all but the remaining, 1810 years, from the original 2300 days/years.
Therefore... 34 A.D,i n the fall, + 1810 = 1822 A.D.

     This, then brings us to what took place within the Heavenly Sanctuary, and not the earthly one, which many used, but the earthly Sanctuary was destroyed by Romans in 70 AD. and will NOT ever be rebuilt, Period!
   Dear reader, remember the original Pass-Over? During the Egyptian captivity? Remember, the 10th and final plaque? Death to every First born? What did God tell the Israelites to do? To tale a spotless lamb, kill and eat it, but use its blood to paint with it over the doors, of their homes, be be inside, while God sent his death Angel to strick all first-born life forms!
    Well guess what period it was when Christ's blood was shed> Pass-Over week! There are no accidents nor co-incidents in God's Word!

    Now at Christ's return, the Second Coming, the Death Angel shall onc3e more do his work, upon all who disbelieve, or reject Jesus, no matter how much blood they paint around their doors!
  It was also the Seventh-day Adventist "Great Disappointment," because they had not, at that time considered the ORIGINAL TABERNACLE, BUILT WITHOUT HANDS! IN HEAVEN.

What men have since learned, is that it was in  1844, in the fall, that Jesus our High priest, entered into the Most Holy of Holies compartment, and there began the work of Judging all the dead, and to cleanse the Sanctuary from all their transferred sins!  All the sins that were and are still being recorded in the Books of Heaven..
    If through Christ's righteousness our lives have been prepared through repentance, confession and surrender of our will, so that we are declared right with God The Father, at the Judgment, this final atonement will be made for your and for me.
