The model of the sanctuary on earth found in the torah is representative of the throne room of God. God had presented to us where He lives and what His home is like and here abides the very keys to salvation by repentance, obtaining mercy and loving God. Angels are on either side of the mercy seat and within the mercy seat is the 10 commandments. This is the place in which the Father resides, this is His throne. The covenant is between God and a commandment keeping people.
In Revelation the scene is of the throne room and both mercy and the commandments are the foundation of God’s government. The book of Revelation revolves around the throne of God giving mention to the Most Holy Place- the throne room of God in nearly all the chapters. The commandments are a key to understanding Revelation and who are the people of God.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. REvelation 22:14 Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. The covenant is made clear throughout the Bible. A false gospel twists the words of Paul to say the commandments do not have to be kept. But Paul also said Romans 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
Then we ought to look real carefully at the commandments for most are not keeping them. Few keep the 4th commandment as they ought and what of the 9th and 10th????
As I add to this page I wish to cover the daily and yearly services of the earthly sanctuary as reflecting the heavenly and how that relates to salvation. How the Sanctuary relates to our understanding of Daniel and Revelation and what persons we ought to be to meet the Day of Judgement.
When prayer is sent to the Father, through the mind an impulse is sent through space into the constellation of Orion, through the corridor of stars, through the Son to the Throne of God. Just how is communication and answers sent? John 1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. Angel communicate our needs to the portals of heaven and also return answers. They also make record of life events and our words. We are privileged to take our requests to the highest authority in all the universe and ask for His help. The Sabbath day; that is the 7th is to be a special day of communication.
Book of Revelation pertains to the Sanctuary and in the Holiest of Holies pertains the mercy seat with the law. The law is the key to salvation. Law abiding citizens are citizens of heaven.
