our father in heaven we thank you so much this morning for bringing this year to ASI we thank you for the privilege of being at meetings like this were weakened and fellowship and learn more truths and interactive just pray that you would be with me in a special way over the next hours as we go through this message may the message be clear may you give me just the words to speak and may help us to be more prepared for the soon coming of Jesus this is my prayer in Jesus name boy while can you hear to our seminar this morning this is the first in a series of four presentations on prophecy later today Michael possible be doing a seminar in the tomorrow morning with Waldman tomorrow afternoon great Hamiltons loves for presentations on prophecy the first presentation this morning is entitled and citizens prophetic role in the great controversy now you realize that we as Seventh-day Adventists have a very unique and special role to fulfill in the great controversy between Christ and Satan right we are not just any other group of people we have a special message and a special mission to take to the world but in order for us to accomplish that mission we need to allow God to do a special work in our life that we are going to be looking at our prophetic role in the great controversy I hope this will give you some full rash ideas perhaps looking at things the way they did it's familiar concepts but presented in the way that you haven't thought of exactly missing my performance in a give you a couple of quotes the start off what we study prophecy why is prophecy such oh nine DLC was a Seventh-day Adventist but here's a statement from type mice the ministers page one thirteen and the statements of the book of Revelation opens with an injunction to us to understand the instruction that contains when we as a people understand what this book means to us there will be seen among us are great revival and that you know sometimes you hear people say on tired of studying bees and horns and not think well if people are tired of studying these and one that could be that they haven't studied the book of Revelation and Daniel correctly because when you study the book of Daniel and Revelation correctly you will see that there's a lot more than these and more next a test like the ministers page one sixteen those you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the son of God will bring from the books of Daniel and Revelation shrews that is inspired by the Holy Spirit they will start into action forces that cannot be repressed the lips of children will be open to proclaim the mistreatment of an hidden from the minds of men listen if you want upbeat partaking of a flesh and blood of Jesus Christ your enemy studying the book of Daniel and Revelation and you're going to bring each grades from those books that are inspired by the Holy Spirit and this will start into action that cannot be repressed and my friend Beth talking about the loud cry the latter rain that will bring this work to a club so we find in these books the message that will start to action forces that cannot be repressed under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit so we don't this is what we study prophecy this is why we look into these things now what were going to be looking at today especially working to be looking at the twenty three hundred your prophecy twenty three hundred a prophecy in connection with the seventy weeks and were going to see hopefully something that we don't think about so much but what is our identity is seven fabulous wealth of course we see the twenty three hundred a prophecy we see that that prophecy takes us down to eighteen forty four we see that that prophecy tells us the time of the investigative judgment been inaugurated we see that we are the judgment our people identified in Revelation chapter fourteen and sometimes my work around our church today I wonder have we forgotten our identity why are we trying to be like Willow Creek why are we trying to be like the church is not just that it frankly here the churches of battle and honest people in the church is about one million euro God says come out of her my people but that does not mean that we go to Babylon to say let's see how we can be like a note were supposed to be the head and not the tail we are supposed to be calling people out and showing them from Scripture what the truth is for our time we need to get over this identity crisis that were having other people need to get back to our true identity I'm hoping that as you see this presentation this morning you will gain a clear picture of just exactly what her identity is more robust than twenty three hundred a prophecy have regard to what in greater detail and this prophecy of the importance of the twenty three hundred days why does this prophecy so important yeah I hear some people say how I'm so tired of talking about the twenty three hundred was just talk about Jesus as any of you ever heard anybody say that okay well if someone says that particular don't really understand the twenty three hundred a prophecy because the twenty three hundred a prophecy identifying what Jesus is doing right now in heaven so if we want to talk about Jesus let's talk about what he is doing now for ASP as identified by prophecy the importance of the twenty three hundred and this is great controversy page four oh nine paragraph one the Scripture which above all others had been that the foundation and the central pillar of the advanced faith with the declaration and to choose thousand and three hundred days then shall the sanctuary be notice alliances this is the Scripture above all other this is the foundation and the central pillar of the aberrant faith on the two thousand three hundred eight vengeful the center of the core found in Daniel eight fourteen and I think you're going to see why this Scripture is the foundation and the central pillar of the advocate wasn't this foundational Scripture this central pillar of Scripture to our faith is more than just the time prophecy this prophecy takes us to an understanding of the sanctuary message and of what Jesus was and is doing in heaven and it's deeds designed to place our focus on what Jesus is doing right now and in and whine with that thought was good her next statement great controversy page four twenty three the subject of the sanctuary was the key which unlocks the ministry of the disappointment of eighteen forty four no notices carefully it opened to view account we system of Shri connected and harmonious showing that God 's hand had directed the great Advent movement and revealing present duty of the brought to light the position and work of his people listen the sanctuary message which is identified through the twenty three hundred and prophecy I want account we system of truth that is connected and harmonious was in with a Seventh-day Adventist we need to understand more than ever before in this type of earth history that God has given to us a complete system of truth it's time to stop being ashamed of the complete system of truth I got a interest but now I don't really want to talk about the sanctuary and for a talk about the spirit of prophecy SM people and we get all defensive about our message whenever we were being led by the spirit we would be excited to show people the complete system of truth that God has given to us we don't need to be ashamed of our doctrines now is not the time shoot and start removing sellers of Shri from our face we have a complete system of truth that is connected and harmonious and notice it reveals present duty has brought so as a brought to light the position work of his people suite we have a lot to be thankful for announced one other statement and I love the statements as testimonies volume five page five seventy five the great plan of redemption is revealed in the closing work in these last days should receive close examination this seems connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others all need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement which is going on in the sanctuary above I noticed this when this ranch three is seen and understood there was to hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare people to stand in the great day of God and their efforts will be successful by study contemplation occurred your people will be elevated above common earthly thoughts and feelings and will be brought in the harmony with Christ in his great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people wasn't the one makes it very clear we need to give the great plan of recent redemption a close examination and when we did the scenes connected in the sanctuary above will next such an impression upon our mind and heart that Morgan I go out and share with others so that they will be addressed we need to have that level of and experience with God not only just having a relationship with Jesus a relationship that is connected to what he is doing and haven't so that we will impress others with what he is doing in heaven on our behalf and when we do this we won't work in harmony with Christ to prepare people to stand in the great and not he wanted to us our work we are to be working took care of people to stand they have gotten great and got and we do services our efforts will be successful yet we come up with all sorts of schemes to reach people and it's good to understand what people are coming from their cultural backgrounds and things of that nature lived in Trinidad for two years and so yes you want to understand where people are coming from but at the end of the day shrewd industry and you can come up with all sorts of interesting plans but the end of the day we need to learn how to present this truth in a way that it will impress their hearts and minds of that they will get excited about this message now having said that this is what I found the conclusion to the prophecy of the twenty three hundred days is the engine and the vehicle that drives out into the night in a resentful nonnormative the twenty three hundred a prophecy what about Jesus will my point is this the twenty three hundred days takes us to what Jesus is doing right now it is Christ centered it is Christ present truth it is showing what Jesus is doing in heaven right now this prophecy connects the wife work and death of Jesus on earth with his work in ministry in heaven today it's a complete package we don't just talk about Jesus on the cross we talk about in the sanctuary in heaven we don't just talk about Jesus and the centering on which like about his ministry here on earth and his death on the cross it all goes together into no it's not surprising that this sheet central pillar of our faith came under attack in the seven patent search in fact I think most of you here in this room remember when Desmond Ford came out with his attack against the sanctuary message how many of you it was as if yesterday that doesn't forget that this key I know several of you and I often only two years old when he made his famous speech of Pacific Union College that I was a baby than that Wilson as I've gotten older and as I've come to love our truth in our message I stopped and I study were nothing Ford's said you know you read what he says and it makes you wonder why were so many people deceived by him because once you get below the initial layer of what he saying it's so easy to refute this point all this give you a few examples I mean he says that the little horn of Daniel eight event type is set to music and then he hides behind non- happiness scholars discussed dangers of you and I mean it is clearly unsustainable on the RAM wife Teresa Shiga waxed very great the little horn waxed exceedingly Daniel it makes a very clear in verse twenty the RAM is Medo Persian verse twenty one Michiko is greased and then you're telling me one came out of the kingdom of Greece was exceeding great when he only ran for a few years and that's the best of the I want a scholarship can come up with any seventh amnesty warns that anyone on he's got some good arguments but I never thought of before I guess what we believe doesn't trade you know that should be a lesson to us that we need to know much better what we believe someone like that who hides behind his doctoral degree and comes along and tries to make it like white Seventh-day Adventists don't really know what they're talking about we as God 's people can study for ourselves and defend the truth that God is given to and of course it's not surprising that because Ellen White made a very clear that the twenty three hundred days of the foundational prophecy about a dozen Fort had undermined the credibility of Eleanor Wright she said that she had devotional value but she was not inspired and hopefully what if you think that doesn't for came in one eleven and having attention to our church because the theology that he brought into the church in the late nineteen seventies is bearing fruit today because you see doesn't for didn't just go after the twenty three hundred days she also do you know why he went up to the twenty three hundred days she said something that that's his view and understanding of the gospel his gospel of grace forced him to throw out the doctrine of the investigative judgment because the gospel of grace your covered by the righteousness of Christ even while you're continuing to send you would talk about Ellen Weiss is perfect health requires perfect circulations that you cross your legs are signing in a lifetime of stuff and he went off on all sources for stuff that at the end of the day he was saying this concept of an investigative judgment were godly use the record on your why goes against the gospel of grace because the Bible teaches that your keeps until Jesus comes you just need grace the cover you to answer what's the purpose of having a record of your life review of Linda Formosa he's like what was the purpose of the sanctuary being planned because your mommy plans before probation clauses a lot I mean someone's as though Jesus comes off when oven for thought here where that right so that's why he went after the sanctuary doctrine though here's what happens when we has some fabulous study the sanctuary message and see as a complete system of truth we realized that as Christ the one thing the sanctuary in heaven above he is wondering us friends then here on Mister and that we really can have victory over sin in this life and so a lot going on so what happens is destined for introduced ideas concepts from of a gospel that was different than what happened is that historically believed and taught and now mouse on ninety seventh at without even perhaps realizing how an understanding of the gospel that is more similar to deduct two thousand four from the Bible the spirit of prophecy another problem Serena keep going here and see what truth really says what is our typical understanding of the twenty three hundred a prophecy of the Savior in a nutshell what something is the end this is all get what I meant to say is as good but it's not the whole picture when we look at the twenty three hundred a property reset out okay this is twenty three hundred a prophecy in Daniel chapter eight fourteen and we look at Daniel chapter eight fourteen we don't know the starting point so how do we get the starting point I would go to Daniel chapter nine we get to verse twenty four Mrs. seventy weeks are determined which means cut off parts cut off from the twenty three hundred days a minute start of the decree to restore and build Jerusalem and that decree was you sent your monitor is according to other seventh verses thirteen and fourteen and according to the canon of Ptolemy the seventh year of Artaxerxes is four fifty seven BC so there we waited with a twenty three hundred and seventy weeks right but typically what we must get that's an excellent understanding of the seventy weeks in the twenty three hundred is and how they're connected there's more to it but there's a lot more humor than one spend some time looking before I get into you anymore these August twenty one examples of how to share but the twenty three hundred eight prophecy is a date for your prophecy when you look at Daniel chapter eight Daniel goes into vision in verse cheese and the word and in the Hebrews tells him and he's in vision and he 's the word for version here has our names to describe what he sees what he see he sees the RAM in verse verses three and four PCs I see here in verses five and six cc Peter destroyed around her seven and the heater waxes great birthday and that he see the little horn come up in verse nine and all the way down through verse twelve and then the question is asked how long and researching the question about how long shall be the vision issue what's in the vision that Daniel sees a RAM aikido and a little horn and then little horn magnifies itself against the Prince of the house in the tramples the truth under the ground he attacked the sanctuary God 's people and so you have the RAM of me occurs of the heat out of Greece the little part of pagan and then papal round and the question is how long shall be the version the what the answer two thousand three hundred days now if you have any logic you would say okay well there the vision in capsule and I made a personal kingdom agrees the kingdom taken around the kingdom of Pandora these XML two thousand three hundred days is writing literal time for nothing forth that it was but all you have to do is use some common sense now clearly the twenty three hundred days is encapsulating these major kingdom and so it has to be editing a day for a year prophecy because there is no way that the twenty three hundred days in the literal time and taken all those kingdoms easier just one illustration of many of how you can undermine Desmond Ford's arguments so when we look at the twenty three hundred days that gives us some understanding that will take a deeper look what is the deeper meaning how should we understand the connection of the seventy weeks in the twenty three hundred is and how does this help us to understand absences and prophetic identity all in a January fourteen we've read the ominous to take some time now Henry Daniel chapter nine verses twenty four twenty seven thirty got your Bibles open them up to Daniel chapter nine and we are going to read versus twenty four through twenty seven Daniel chapter nine versus twenty four through twenty seven seventy weeks are determined upon my people and upon my holy city to finish the transgression of Jamaican and ascends and to make reconciliation for inequity in the bring in everlasting righteousness and to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy know therefore and understand but that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem shall the Messiah the current owners are into the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks in three sports she was the street shall be going in the wall even in troublous times and after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off but not for himself and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary and the end thereof shall be with a flood and under the you know what desolation to determine he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week and most of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease for the ever spreading of abominations he shall make it desolate even until the consummation and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate of the so this is the section of Daniel that helps us to understand the beginning point to the twenty three hundred days of the seventy weeks are determined and the Hebrew word there is a contact which means to cut off but there is a lot more that's been talked about here in the section and just helping another starting point for the twenty three hundred days right to seventy weeks are cut off and determine upon my people and upon my holy city to do what notice what it says finish the transgression Nathan Anderson make reconciliation for iniquity bring in everlasting righteousness seal up the vision and prophecy and anoint the most holy do you think that's important can we talk about this very want to show you right now is how this connects with the twenty three hundred days less than seventy research cut off from the twenty three hundred days but in the seventy weeks we see the Messiah the Prince will become and and when he comes to his purpose is to finish the transgression making him a sense make reconciliation for iniquity bring in everlasting righteousness still at the vision and prophecy and anoint the most holy now when we look at this when you look at the first four points here you see that God 's purpose in the seventy weeks is to deal with the sin problem right because all of them and come short of the glory of God sin has been a problem here on this earth ever since Adam you sent so for specific point that talk about dealing with the sin problem now how did Christ deal with the sin problem in the seventy weeks his death on the cross right so this is pretty basic pretty obvious that here's the thing Jesus dies on the cross to deal with the sin problem but let me ask you a question did some cease to exist when Jesus died on the cross now it did not sin has conceived to be an issue we have not yet seen the everlasting righteousness brought in by what Jesus did on La Crosse being jammed out work that was necessary to deal with his son probably see that to make an innocent of finish the transgression to make reconciliation for iniquity to bring in everlasting righteousness and the question is can we identify a time in prophecy where the sin problem will be dealt with once and for all what just so happens that the seventy weeks are cut off from the twenty three hundred days and when you get to the end of the twenty three hundred days if so then shall the sanctuary be quite the day of atonement language when the sons of God 's people would be blotted out that here's what you're saying theologically the seventy weeks in the twenty three hundred days are connected as well not to just give you a starting point for the twenty three hundred days of the unit is four fifty seven BC to eighteen forty four it's also showing you what Jesus is accomplishing in dealing with the sin problem he starts with the same problem when he died on the cross but he will finish dealing with the problem he has in the most holy place in nineteen forty four that makes sense looking out the first four points but notice that she would other things that are mentioned here in Daniel chapter harnesses seal up the vision and prophecy and anoint the most holy and one assists you up the vision and prophecy the word seal it means to ratify what vision and prophecy did Jesus ratify with it with his death on the cross the vision of the twenty three hundred he realized that the twenty three hundred days is so important that Jesus 's death ratified and why did the vision and prophecy need to be ratified or sealed up because his death guaranteed that a day would come that he would take his blood and with his blah blah our son is secret not ratify the vision without Hezbollah if Jesus doesn't die we don't get eighteen forty four at least as far as the sanctuary but because Jesus died and thirty one eighty we get to eighteen forty four so Jesus 's death ratifies the vision and prophecy about twenty three hundred days and says he anointed the most holy another word in the Hebrew for more most holy the Skoda Skoda Sheen and that means sanctuary and so when Jesus died on the cross he shed his blood for Hezbollah and inaugurated the work of the sanctuary to now that gives us some understanding of what the twenty three hundred days is all about her on the seventy weeks in connection of the twenty three hundred is both look a little bit more than twenty three hundred days out here we see him in two thousand three and it is a sanctuary shall be clamped the word and the Hebrew is the Hebrew word NASDAQ your site without the meaning of fever were in Daniel chapter in verse fourteen so I know who I'm talking to you then I started without a few of you have many of you have not sung someone is any Sunday man a few thousand three hundred days and then shall the sanctuary the clan the word when it is NASDAQ and you know what this word means in the Hebrew note that it actually means justified nuts one of the things that doesn't work that saith not even talking about the Clinton of the century but the word NASDAQ comes from the word setback that he reflect which means to be justified are to be set right or to be vindicated but what doesn't for didn't understand and I'll show you is that through out the Old Testament this Hebrew word NASDAQ which construes or so back which comes from the back is in parallel with another Hebrew word to Herrick which means the client but we just give you a few verses turn in your Bible to Joe chapter four verse seventeen Job chapter four verse seventeen and here we read shall mortal man be more just than God shall man be more pure than his maker notice that the parallel there shall Mandy Moore Jonathan Gotshal he be more pure than God just and pure are put together you see this again can I take the time to read all the verses that you see the very same thing in James seventeen verse nine Psalms nineteen verse nine in Ecclesiastes chapter nine verse two cheers what she hears how the Hebrew mind operates if you say justified you also mean that your peer if you say justified you also mean that your claim that it should go together it's like justification and sanctification and in the modern world today we try to separate out justification sanctification and say that justification means everything and sanctification of worry about when in reality they go together hand-in-hand okay so when it says on the two thousand three hundred days then shall the sanctuary he justified it also means your clan and ultimately set right or to be vindicated and in that there is an element of the vindication of God that is being described here now this is what I've come to understand what Jesus began on the cross according to the seventy weeks in the twenty three hundred days as they are connected when Jesus began on the cross he finishes in the sanctuary specifically the most holy Place Nelson and we've known this for a while but I'm just showing the house connected to join these two prophecies know what I'm going to do next I'm want to spend some time showing you a big picture of what of how the sanctuary baying for and have how God has raised up a people through him he won't cleanse the sanctuary how this is all over the books of Daniel and Revelation when you look at the big picture now we can get into the details of organ especially look at the big picture so that Daniel means God is my judge so it's all about judgment and of course the cleansing of the century 's first mentioned in this book some Daniel chapter shared we see the promise of the second coming the stone is on a strike the image and Jesus is going to come we don't yet know of course an amendment but there they are we don't know when the second coming is going to take place only now is that according to shoot this foundational proposition than a chapter to you at some point Jesus is coming in the clouds of heaven then we can to Daniel Chapter seven we see that after the kingdoms of this world the wine the bear the leopard that the dreadful beast and the little worn there is a judgment in heaven where Christ the Son of Man comes in the clouds of heaven to the ancient him them just sat in the book through but now we know this on the twenty three hundred days an and its connection to the judgments of this work began in eighteen forty four somehow things are becoming a little bit clearer when we come to Daniel chapter eight we see in the sequence of kingdoms after the RAM of Medo Persian he got of grace and the little horn around the sanctuary 's clan and this is aging forty four and by the way you might wonder why Babylon is no thing from the twenty three hundred a prophecy in the chapter of Daniel chapter eight femininity is found in Daniel seven minutes missing in chapter eight because the twenty three hundred a prophecy starts during the kingdom of Medo Persians of Babylon is not relevant to that prophecy and then we come to Daniel chapter eleven ten eleven and twelve this gives us even greater detail anatomy company in the elections of this world Michael stanza probation closes and that happens just before Jesus comes and again we don't know exactly when that's going to take place when you look at the big picture this is what you see Daniel two tells us Jesus is coming back in the clouds of heaven we know that but in order for Jesus to come back there must be an judgment to take place in which the Saints are given the kingdom as a result of the judgment right of Daniel seven so that the end of the chapter that the Saints are given the kingdom as a result of the judgment well in order for the Saints to be given the kingdom and the judgment the sanctuary in heaven not the color Christ will not give his kingdom the saints who are not one percent BC so Jesus is coming back but in order for them to come back he must have a judgment and when he has a judgment he will give the kingdom to his saints but in order for him what to say teen models have a sanctuary that is when because the wires of the sentiment one from and when the sanctuary Esquire Michael will stand up and probation will close both of her enough of the overall big picture message of the book of Daniel is an operating how those four prophecies connect there will be a second coming we don't know maternity the judgment begins in eighteen forty four centric London in the nineteen forty four probation closes and each of those prophecies shows us what needs to take place for Jesus to come back to here's a very interesting thing if you're looking at that graph very carefully you see that the focus of prophecy is between eighteen forty four to the second time right that should wake us up a little bit should it not we should just be living wise business as usual right click when the economy starts to tank a little bit of a limited amount before and Jesus is coming anytime soon really is that your attitude of the Seventh-day Adventists when we study prophecy we see that the focus of prophecy throughout history is from eighteen forty four shoe the second and so studying the book of Daniel gives us an understanding of just how important our judgment our messages this complete system of truth that is connected and harmonious throughout the prophecies in an attempt to the book of revelation and I love studying the book of Revelation the book of Revelation is the revelation of Jesus Christ this is a book of not revealing decent horns when it does describe East and Horn is describing the antagonistic right but the book of Revelation is all about showing who Jesus is and how he is revealed now in a special way in the seven churches in the seven Seals and in the seven trumpets we see God 's plan to deal with the sin problem it is remembered in the seventy weeks you're missing the finishing of the transgression magnanimous and making reconciliation for inequity and bring in everlasting righteousness or Revelation is showing us how that takes place when we look at the seven churches when we come to the end of the seven churches we see that Jesus stands at the door of Laodicea 's attorney says let me come in the article take a few moments to talk about the latest in-house figure out what fellow wants about the Laodicean message in early writings page two seventy she says that she was asked the meaning of the shaking that she had seen and was shown that it would be brought forth by the Council of the true witness to the Laodicean church and when you read the Council the true witness to the Laodicean church Jesus says you are my judgment our church Laodicea means a judge people and Jesus says my judgment our church in my wealth so much you say that you are rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked parties like counseling or mining gold tried in the fire that you may be rich what's later to see his problem latest uses were rich were increased with goods we don't need anything and Jesus is actually in order for you to be Rich you need to buy gold tried in the fire what's the gold tried in the fire first Peter chapter one verse seven says that if the true ideal of your faith that is much more precious than gold the parish of the tried with fire here's what where the CSI we have faith because gold tried in the fire safe way to see if they were rich because we have faith we have righteousness by faith we have saving faith we have assurance of salvation were just cannot wait until Jesus comes and everything so many great and Jesus says this is a big problem because you think you have righteousness by faith and reality you are wretched miserable poor blind and naked malice and if you are naked you do not have the righteousness of Christ and yet has as a way to see in church were like oh yeah were a little late form were not too hot will not see how we just need to get a little bit more on fire for Jesus and yet Jesus and you are lacking righteousness by faith and yet Laodicea sent now we have righteousness by faith were fine we are rich were increased with goods we don't need anything else we don't want to do that gold tried in the fire and because that would mean we have to go through the trials of life among the really trust in Jesus we don't want that and this is what brings the shaking of the church because when the message comes to the church to prepare people for cleansing to have the gold tried in the fire so that the sins in our life will be removed so that we can be cleansed of sin we say no don't tell me that I just want a message that gives me assurance of salvation but doesn't require me to surrender my life to Jesus and so waited to see if it's supposed to be and is the church of the judgment power that is being prepared to be cleansed of sin so that Jesus can finish his work in the sanctuary in his great poverty battle with Satan and Young Laodicea in many respects has been deceived into a false understanding of the gospel which causes us to be complacent about our Christian experience I like this have a relationship with Jesus Ball keeps until he comes but the fault gospel and you know if you go through the only way to see an method wretched miserable poor blind and naked the word ratchet is the great mortality progress is found one other place in the New Testament young in our last Pam Robinson O wretched man that I forget that I was in high but which I did I love so I do the things I don't want to be I don't do the things that I wanted to a lustrous depression returns on the way to heaven levels of experience that's my spirit that's righteousness by faith alone Jesus is saying now if that's your experience your naked the probably seals were blind so that we don't see that true conditions that when Jesus as the true witness gives the straight message to the church this will bring a shaking to God 's people and so Jesus is saying after he says all of the seasons on as many as I love I rebuke and chasing be zealous therefore and repent then he says behold I stand at the door and not why is Jesus standing at the door knocking because Laodicea has let Jesus outside of our lives we want Jesus on the outside we want the covering of his righteousness but please don't come into my life and be the Lord of my life I'll take years my Savior but please don't be my Lord affiliate a CSI without realizing and Jesus and I want each you must delete units conditions of Jesus Cinque please let me come in and then the very next verse he says in verse twenty one to him whatever for I grant to sit with me in my throne even as I also overcame and sat down with my father in his throne now you realize first-round fiber sources this is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith Jesus overcame by his face if we overcome as he overcame we overcome by the faith of Jesus the third Angels message Laodicea is a lacking the experience of the third Angels message which is designed to fix landless from the seminar why but so often we have not wanted the experience of the third Angels message we want a form of godliness we want Jesus to covers we don't want to cleanse us and yet Jesus sank the purpose for your existence as Seventh-day Adventist as to because when the sin in your life so that I can finish the work in the sanctuary in heaven Jesus begin that work on the cross and he went into the most holy Place in eighteen forty four to finish it but he's got a problem right now because Laodicea is not letting him finish that work and Jesus is saying please let me come so that's the message and the seven churches as we may forward here we come to Revelation chapter six and seven the method of the seven seals and somehow from Gaza last day church we see that the one hundred and forty four thousand are sealed now I am so thankful that when I study the methods revelation I realized that even though God 's people are in a terrible condition in the last days that somehow someway God 's people and Jesus come in and from that last a church the one hundred and forty four thousand will come forth you were sealed with the seal of the living God to you go down through the ceiling using the first four seals with the four Horsemen and then you can of the fifth seal of the souls trying under the altar how long the Lord shall you judge and avenge our blood and then when you get to the six seal suddenly see the great Lisbon earthquake of seventeen fifty five the dark if seventeen eighty Fawn the stars in eighteen thirty three and the very next thing you see is Jesus coming in the clouds of heaven and the wicked all calling for the rocks in the mouth the file on and so eighteen thirty three seconds and we've got a long time now from eighteen thirty three till now and the question is why has Jesus not yet come back yet because of that and then the very next section Revelation seven we see the before weapons are being held until the servants of God are sealed and therefore it and they will be sealed now every time I see a major Earth event like 9/11 like the tsunami of two thousand four even like the economic Great Depression or whether a recession that started in two thousand eight those are signs of the Windsor Bentleys the little God 's people are waking up and becoming more ready and getting closer to being sealed wasn't now only thirty six years old that you see I'm greater awakening takes taking place in the Seventh-day Adventist church today there are things that are happening in this church that perhaps twenty five years ago were not happening right on the scene and awakening among young people you have the movement like G Y C which shows that young people don't need to be entertained to come to church in fact if you look at young people many of whom I went through school with the one through one of the entertainment driven services are no longer in the church so those entertainment driven services didn't see them in the church anyway and if they did they don't understand our message is Seventh-day Adventist our purpose is not to try to keep children the church just to locate and if they don't know Jesus am not prepared to meet them in the closet up our message and our purpose of the church is to prepare each and every one to receive the seal of the living God that's why were here enough of this the seal teaches many to the trumpets and when you come to the end of the trumpets you come to Revelation chapter ten which describes the ministry of God being finished this is the read chapter were mighty angel comes down with a blood oath and in his hand he has one foot on the earth the other on the sea and he goes down through Nice tries mightily as one online resume says that I should be no longer and that the ministry of God should be finished in the mystery of God according to Colossians chapter one verse twenty seven is Christ in you the hope of glory so this is the second Advent movement that's raised up by Jesus himself this work was important Jesus didn't leave any other rental he's the mighty Angel she comes down from heaven he raises his name out it's based on the open book of Daniel especially the twenty three hundred a prophecy that point the cleansing of a century and this is the beginning of the sound of the seventh trumpet and while the seventh trumpet sounding Jesus said that during the seven trumpet sound which began in eighteen forty four in this agreement that I am raising up the ministry of God is to be finished which is Christ in you the hope of glory by Christ outside of you not Christ as a forensic covering now Christ in the hope of glory and that's the same message as the latest unity stamp of the doorknocking let me come and urinal might assume the one condition that watching the righteousness of Christ Jesus saying let me come in any you see that the purpose for the afternoon is to let Jesus comment so that the mystery of God to be hashed out abilities Galatians two twenty I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live yet not either Christ live in and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of a the son of God and let me and gave himself for me that's what living by the faith of Jesus again that's the third Angels message the third Angels masses about full surrender to Jesus being crucified with Christ so that Christ can come in and cleanse us of sin of course we can than the three Angels messages in Revelation chapter fourteen which call us to remember the everlasting optimal to proclaim the everlasting gospel with a loud voice to proclaim fear God and give glory to the hour of his judgment has come and worship him who made heaven and earth the sea and the fountains of waters have a message that Babylon is fallen fallen and you conclude with the third Angels message it talks about the Mark of the beast that concludes by saying here is the patience of the fewer they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus it was a few point that I can make about that one when God 's last day people are identified as keeping the commandments of God why do we as Seventh-day Adventists get so worried about being accused of being legal lists for keeping the commandments listen the Bible says that God lastly people are going to be keeping the commandments of God why are we trying to diminish that teaching because the Bible makes it very clear that God last date people will keep the commandment of God now obviously this is not your strength how is Christ in you the hope of glory wasn't if you like Christ comes into your life is Christ and eleven OBD life to your disobedient life his eleven obedient life he was Jesus the legalist now if you live a perfect life right that doesn't make Jesus a legalist because he was connected to God we need to stop being afraid of these charms that are thrown around and just say what the Bible says the Bible says that through the power of God there will be a group of people who keep the commandments of God and revelation chapter twelve seventeen push the throttle while profit between Christ and Satan as is the Dragon was rotten with a woman went to make war with the remnant of her seed which keep the commands of God have the testimony of Jesus Christ is it any wonder that she will do things better under most attack in the Seventh-day Adventist church is keeping the commandments of God 's Spirit of prophecy because Satan has that if God 's people will stay connected to him and allow through this power strength Christ the contents of the vacant so that we can than obedient life we will also be drawn to the testimony of Jesus which is the spirit of prophecy which will point out areas in our lives that we need to surrender to the Lord which will prepare us to be ready for Jesus to come and so was saying that these like all Alan White's writings those are so outdated and they don't even apply anymore she's so strict and later was that I've heard people say our folly ever did was read the testimonies become a legalistic theater all these things that are out there and at the end of the day you have to realize that these are the attacks of Satan against the last thing the church and yet God is raising up a group of people who are sent to keep her eyes on Jesus or not to be deterred by the false charges for energy price on Jesus were going to watch them come in and through his grace and through the strength we will live obedient life we will believe in the spirit of prophecy and we will share it with others so they could here's the point when you look at the big picture when you look at the big picture of revelation in the seven churches the seventh seal the seven trumpets the three Angels messages these are just different facets send the same thing that Jesus is working through the second Advent movement she plans the sanctuary of Sir he does so by coming and the staff of the door he's mocking he says let me comment when we went to him declined results of sin and the sanctuary and covenants the book when see also forty four thousand that also demonstrates that he has dealt with the sin problem is when the Saints from the when the mystery of God is finished Christ in the event of a glory in the second amendment again the sanctuary in heaven with client and when Christ has a commandment keeping people who keep the command forgot application for the second and the faith of Jesus he has finished his work as our high priest where he is working to write his lot to our hearts and minds which cleanses us a son so when you look at the book of Revelation as a big picture what you see is that in reality the book of Revelation is describing how Jesus plans to deal with the second problem from eighteen forty four to the second coming housing on India by coming into our hearts and lives in cleansing and that means we need to surrender not this is a point here and so simple it sounds so easy but we only how hard our old fallen natures fight again the call of Christ for full surrender right it's a lot easier to talk about this than to experience above through the grace and power of Jesus he is all-powerful we can experience and Americans sent down through the ages you have enough the one item I was Abraham holds a small but here the faith and human Chapter 11 so this certainly is possible for each one of us that you know it for some seven thousand 's of a lot more fun to talk about conspiracy theories than it is about the work that Jesus needs to be when our hearts are prepared for the second time were more interested about knowing what the popes doing and what the Jesuits are doing in the illuminati and this and that and whatever and we don't really understand have we let Jesus comment the that were actually kind and cheerful to also there were nice and loving even when we are crossed when things don't go our way at work or at home we're actually showing the love of Jesus and who cares if you don't know about conspiracy theories as long as you surrender your life to Jesus the conspiracy theories are necessity and management probably aren't true anyway onto all get off that soapbox but since brother for me in my life I felt that license the Senate today to okay so what I want to do now I just want to share a few things from from Helen why they corroborate what I can say this is customized volume one page one eight one eighty seven those you come up to every form and stand every chest and over time the rice what it may have seen the Council of the true witness and they will receive the latter rain and dust befitted for translation do you realize that Revelation three versus fourteen through twenty two is the message that our church needs now to be fitted for translation the translation message is not just a message about improvement in your Christian experience if the methods that's going to bring the shaking and is going to prepare God 's people for translation because when we talk to every point and passed every test and overtime be the price one of make when we receive the latter ran an effort fitted for translation that means we been cleansed from the one way of the sea LLC is the common he will cleanse his church of some of what we need to and then cleansing and the seals testimonies on five page two fourteenths a week from the seals and receiving the seal of God Nasrallah watches five assessment sixty fourteen not one of us will ever receive the seal of God while our characters have one spot or stain upon it is left with us to remedy that the defects in our characters to cleanse the souls whatever you do file then the latter rain will fall upon us as the early rain fell upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost was in order for us to receive the seal of God which is a staff of his character in heart for had I his grace and truth power we need every cent in our lives unnecessarily a popular method for one half you really enjoy some I mean there's something that is the pleasure of sin for a season with something I mean do you really enjoy being there other at that person who wronged you twenty years ago how's the last twenty or so for you always been so good to just have that brunch for twenty years on so glad I felt like garage for twenty plus he'll get really Jesus has something so much better for us why do we not want each one this why wouldn't we want to have the keys and freedom that comes from having Center America marijuana payment Jesus has something so much better for us we can be fun through his grace and through his power and then cleansing in the trumpets and this ties it all together this is review and Herald April twenty one eighteen ninety one the latter reign as the fall upon the people of God a mighty angel is to come down from heaven and the whole earth is to be elided with his glory are we ready to take part in the glorious work of the third angel are vessels ready to receive the heavenly D8 have we defiled and send the heart gifts out and noticed this let us cleanse the soul sample and prepare for the showers and the latter rain the refreshing from the presence of the Lord will never come the hearts the with impurity May God help us to die to self that Christ the hope of glory may be formed within the revelations Christ the hope of glory being formed within the mystery of God is him with receiving the latter rain so the loud cry can go to the worlds of the earth can be enlightened with the glory of God that's why the MMA and has been raised up and in preparation for the we need to be art to have our soul topples one to prepare for the showers of the latter reign of Christ in the hope of glory and a personal application this is not the page two forty nine from the holy of holy there goes on the grand work of instruction the Angels of God are communicating the man Christ officiates in the sanctuary we do not follow him into the sanctuary as we should try and Angels work in the hearts of the children of men the church about united with the church allows war and the good warfare on here is this there not be a purifying of the soul here upon the earth in harmony with Christ cleansing of the sanctuary in heaven God 's people are now to have their eyes fixed on the heavenly sanctuary where our great high priest is interceding for us people somehow dismiss the sanctuary in heaven is not one of the one percent if we as God 's people are not one person here on this Earth we do not surrender allies wholly and completely to Jesus now some people may take is that they are both on time and join the swirls all the heat having fun in them I wanted him around it I'll get my act together and then Jesus will finish his work not you better not have that attitude because there's people all around us that are preparing themselves to receive the latter rain so if you send your harm I wore delays is coming you may be left out so Jesus is trying to get each one of us to surrender a life that hands that we can be purified soon in the last fifteen minutes and is going to show a few applications from the book of Hebrews and how it culminates in Revelation fifteen the closer provision Jesus is our high priest what is he doing them we have three passages in Scripture that I want to point out here is chapter a versus one in shape we see that the things which we have spoken this is a summary of such an high priest you set him on the right hand of the throne of the you are a minister of the censoring of the true tabernacle which the Lord testimony to what we know about Jesus Keyser high priest seated at the right hand of the throne of God what's he doing a diversified he is the mediator of a better covenant the new covenant and then in verses ten to twelve what is he doing at the mediator the new covenant working to write his law into our hearts and minds so that he can blot out our sins and remember our sins and iniquities no more and have the right to the throne of God he's not only our high priest he is the author and finisher of our faith helping us to run with patience the race that is set forth so that we can look in the Jesus of you for the joy that was set before him and you're the cross despising the shame and he said that the right hand of the throne of God so this is what Jesus is doing in heaven right now he's working the writing is on our hearts and minds he's helping us to run with patience the race that is set forth so that we can overcome as he overcame through the faith of Jesus and that's a nice little summary of revelation fourteen verse twelve so this is what Jesus is there now what I want to focus on especially is finishing the race because this race of faith has been set before us and I will spend some time especially liking the Hebrews Chapter 11 starting in verse nine three receivers chapter twelve verse two this is a great section of Scripture we study Hebrews it become a favorite chapter you see all these heroes of faith who through faith conquered kingdoms so it subdued kingdoms wrought righteousness and high hurting it's like wow they stop the mouth of why I want to have that kind of faith and the others she can does it better resurrection were slain with the sword sawn asunder and so forth just because you have faith doesn't mean you're going to escape some people dead in the faith chapter some people didn't they all have victorious faith and after you see all of these heroes of faith we come to the end of your chapter eleven picking up inverse and thirty nine assists and these all him again report through faith received not the promise God having provided some better thing for us that they without us should not be made perfect in what one is Paul saying here he was a one thousand extensive flight ever uses all of these amazing things about the faith experience of these people since they received not the promise what promise do they not receive well when you do few verses earlier promise was of a better country a heavenly country is foundations and on this Earth use builder and maker is God it's the heavenly Jerusalem and they have not yet received the bonuses that they without us should not be made perfect what does Paul mean when he says these heroes of faith are not perfect without us first of all what is it mean to be made perfect in this context and work with the us that Paul is talking about the answer is and here's twelve verses one through four that helps us to understand what it means to be made perfect so speak and to the S the post- about the plot of the FindWhat need to be perfect if you want Hebrew chapter ten especially the first four versus when he talks about being perfect it's in the context of the blotting out of the sons of God 's people to take this hundreds line up to be perfect is to have your sins blotted out because when you look at these heroes of faith there are people mentioned in that chapter that are in heaven now in it is in heaven now Moses and is in heaven now and even though Elijah doesn't mention my name he was translated without saying that there was the first fruits of her were raised with Christ at his resurrection and what does it mean for them without us to not be made perfect well it's because there sends have not yet been blotted out and then he ritual versus one key where forcing we offer that was so great a cloud of witnesses let us lay aside every weight and the similar stuff so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith and for the joy that was set before him in gear the cross despising the shame and a set down at the right hand of the throne of God here's what Paula said there is going to be a group of people who experienced the third Angels message at the end of time that will allow Christ to finish his work as high priest in the sanctuary of heaven above and when Christ finishes that work as our great high priest he will block out the sound of all the same all of the heroes of faith in Hebrews eleven and those are alive at the end of time because they do those your living at the end of time the hundred and forty four thousand they will run with patience the race set before they will look into Jesus the author and finisher of our faith good for the joy that was set before him and you're the cross despising the shame and a set down at the right hand of the throne of God listen we have a race to run it's a race to run where we are to lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us so that Christ concludes us from Sanford 's power and strength so that he can have a sanctuary Clinton had about and when he has a group of people who run this race they will have the experience of the third Angels message of having patience and of being like Jesus how we run this race we looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith he died on the cross but he sat down at the right hand of the throne of God this race takes us from the cross to the most holy place of the heavenly century just like the seventy weeks in the twenty three hundred days and when that work is finished we will see something very amazing happen on its shaky shoe revelation chapter fifteen as we close Revelation chapter fifteen is a very fascinating chapter it it occurs just after the three Angels messages are described in the great harvest in Revelation chapter fifteen throwing numbers once you see a sign in having the seven angels having the Sonoma placer Philip of the wrath of God then you seems the hundred and forty four thousand single song of Moses the servant of God and the son of a lamp and the numbers five as is and after that I want to behold the sample of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened and the seven Angels came out of the temple having the seven last plagues closed in pure and white women having their breasts with Golden girls and one of the four beast demon of the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God he limits forever and ever and sample was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power and now man was able to enter into the temple of the seven plagues of the seven Angels were fulfilled so at this point the sanctuary in heaven is opened and now the Senate must place of import smoke from the glory of God built the Temple Mount who can go into the temple this is the closing of probation and the question is what has happened happening during the time that the seven last plagues are being poured out we see the smoke felt that simple and when you worked at the experience in the central message if you give to the book of Leviticus you see that the high priest finished his work in the most holy place he came out of the sanctuary through the holy place and the outer corridor and then he waved the sons of God 's people rescinded and blot out onto the head of the scapegoat in the scapegoat was led out into the land or into the wilderness land of forgetfulness by a fit in so what's happening here prophetically his probation is closed Jesus has come out of the most holy Place is taken off his priestly garments he's put on his kingmaker in the meantime he sliced the sense of God 's people I had a seat in the same note and now the third man is going to lead Satan out into the land of forgetfulness because of this point one provision of the Christ tell the people is one hundred and forty four thousand commitments when the Senate as well Walmart says this is falling my gun collection page one nine seven Jesus work in the century will soon be finished and after his work there is finished he will come to the door of the first department can set the sons of Israel upon the head of escape it then he will put on the garments of vengeance than the playful upon the wicked and they do not cancel Jesus took on my garment and takes his place upon the great white cloud then while the plagues are following the scapegoat is then went away he makes a mighty struggle to escape but he is held fast by the hand that leads and if he should affect his escape Israel will lose their lives I saw that it would take time to lead away the scapegoat of the land of forgetfulness after the sins were problems that this is what I see a fit man represents the hundred and forty four thousand because they are the people for whom Christ has climbed them absent as he has finished his work in the century he then comes out of the most solid plate and he got the sent of God 's people under the head of Satan and now the plague started report out on the wicked this is when God 's people go through what is known as Jacobs time of trouble and this is what Satan sang to God in the great controversy Satan is saying you're saying that after probation closes that they won't need a mediator and they won't send any more than God I'm telling you when push comes to shove and the great controversy is on the line I am going to get that bitmap leg of his draft because I'm numbering the strongest temptations they've ever seen in their lives and I know that I've gotten the semaphore in London again and again God and Jesus is saying just wait and see here is the patience of the saints here they may keep the commandment God and the faith of Jesus and Jesus is betting the great controversy on the fact that when he cleanses his ranting to add that movement is the way literacy ensures that he can place a seal one hour format that the mystery of God is all we can completely accomplished he is guaranteed that we as his people were we'd see as the fit man into the land of forgetfulness so that he will never be seen from again we will pray for God 's strength and power that it is possible to follow God fully and completely but his law he is a fair lot that it can be kept and that even though we are the weakest of the week living at the worst time ever said Street the power of God is omnipotent and we can defeat Satan and the great controversy so what is Adventism 's prophetic role in the great controversy is to allow God to fruit through 's that Satan is wrong this charges against God and you know some fans when you wake up to that reality we need to stop siding with Satan the great controversy saying things like oh I can't really ever constant upkeep in the Commandments of legalism of the spirit of prophecy doesn't really matter not when you do that unwittingly you are eating Satanist fight against God and we are Seventh-day Adventist need to write to rise up to the challenge that God is given us and say you know what we are sinful we human beings who have fallen short of the glory of God that God is an omnipotent God he is a powerful yet he is a loving God he is a merciful God I see Jesus dying on the cross I want a savior like that I want a lower like that I will be crucified with Christ so that Christ can come into my heart he will live out his life to me I will live by the faith of Jesus I will live in obedient life and when the history of the great controversy is written it will be Saturday and then made them here was a group of people who learned to follow Jesus fully and completely so that they would have a patient for the same keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus not Islamic and affiliated at this is the message for our time this conference is not playing games with the phone church is about one time for us to shut down one how beautiful and powerful this method is if you want to be part of such a powerful and closing work I would invite you to stand with me as far as possible as we have a closing prayer father in heaven we thank you for the work that you've given us to do for the identity that you have given us that drives our mission I just pray that we would learn to surrender our lives fully and completely that Jesus so that it can be said of us that Christ lives in the hope of glory that Christ is cleansing us from sin that he began to deal with the sin probl
