are in this message was sent to you I seems than sequencing from Phoenix Arizona and other resources like this visit us online at www. USC is as iconic thank you so much for the Sabbath for the opportunity to draw close to you because you have drawn close to us that you've set aside this holy time the special day week by week where we can meet with you we can come into your presence city graffiti learn from you from your word taught by your Holy Spirit in us our parents after you bless us with your presence is merely a word you would make it clear to teach one of our hearts and minds in Jesus well I couldn't actually have asked for a better introduction to what I'm going to share with you this afternoon then the sermon this morning how many heard the sermon this morning everybody is very yeah I had mentioned the idea of you know that so the gospel in previous in the previous seminar number five work different views of the gospel among Seventh-day Adventists I like the way it was put there that that the gospel of sound would like to push on us is an incomplete gospel is not the total package that we know about as sometime as we have a great privilege of knowing as we do about the heavenly sanctuary Jesus ministry there not only that but the Bible prophecies of Daniel and Revelation that bring them together so beautifully and interconnect Daniel Hebrews Revelation and many other parts of Scripture we don't have anything to apologize for gospel is God 's work of atonement Christ's work of atonement in English workforces you know comes from its kind built together around that are coined word that means at one is God 's reign of us back to himself establishing reestablishing the connection we talked about it in previous seminars as a ladder stretching from heaven Jesus high nearing a pathway for us into the heavenly sanctuary to God 's presence especially now since eighteen forty four in the most holy place and we will talk and focus on that in particular and the significance of the time in which we live this day of atonement time here this afternoon I liked again that three steps that were mentioned this morning gospel you got sacrifice across outer court you have the application the blood or sometimes blows port beneath the altar often also brought into the holy place but it was applied to the horns of altar bread offering or sorry for putting it on the altar of burnt offering are applied to the horns of the altar of incense and so there is application of the blood and the holy place and cleansing the sanctuary course beginning the most holy Place the technical sanctuary cleansing everything from from inside out which is a lesson for us is meant as to how God wants to cleanse us from the inside out man not from the outside and sometimes we get backwards we try to cleanse ourselves of the runway we can't cleanse ourselves really only God can do it and he only does it one way and that's the way it's illustrated in sanctuary so beautifully from the inside out begin the most holy Place the heart you know and and affecting everything we think in everything we do so let's look at these three steps when Hebrews Hebrews nine fifteen we have the sacrifices mentioned we we spoke about Hebrews nine first nine verses are so last time so I will review that I he was nine fifty for this cause he Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant that by means of dead redemption transgressions that were under the first testament or covenant they which are called may receive the promise of the and eternal inheritance so by means of gas for the redemption transgressions also the first coming on just for the new covenant but really for all time and Jesus in the animal sacrifices were a symbol they were shadowing the book of Hebrews nothing but animal blood could not take away sins only Jesus like to do that and offered once for all and so those sins worse were not really redeemed until the Redeemer came and offered that that's why it was at the risk of eternal loss that Jesus came only with his worthiness sins of all previous heiress reteamed paid for of course our sins as well secondly second step application the blood verse twenty two almost all things are by the law purged or cleansed with blood purified with blood and without shedding of blood there is no remission no forgiveness without same blood cells the application but had two essential parts to the atonement you have the sacrifice and the application of the blood and without that there was no forgiveness of sins and then find I know there is the most toy place in verse twenty three was therefore necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these I was necessarily copies that is the earthly sanctuary places and things to be purified with these that is animal sacrifices that heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these does have any plans to see the idea of having these concerns it was also surprised me when as an atheist as I mention I read the great conversation starter same revelation realized that there was warned that the war the first one that ever began in the universe was in heaven I wouldn't have thought of that there was a Bible war in heaven and dust for that reason there are things that need to be settled in heaven as well as under as Paul says we are spectral spectacle to the universe Angels command were there Wisconsin's Greek universe so we need to recognize that the controversy and that the the battle between good and evil is bigger than than we are visited and bigger issues involved off course were important part of but but bigger issues are involved tenth and so let's turn the Hebrews chapter six where this go back a little bit we didn't really cover this verse but I think it's important as connection to mention he says therefore have courses bringing up all that has been said already about Jesus and his work as fully God and fully human as the Redeemer who is the only one who can actually save us and he can save us only because he lives forever according to the order of notches chapter five and that he learned obedience verse eight of chapter five by the things which he suffered and being made perfect p.m. he came the author of eternal salvation to all them will pay him so on so now therefore verse six leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ King James says on the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on to perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God not laying again the foundation anyone who's bought a house how many times you lay a foundation want to try hopefully only once actually that was the building that I was had I I was involved with later after the foundation in Layton unfortunately when was not laid right and guess what had been taken out and report back again sometimes the Christian life is like that in a related foundation right we have to kind and do things and recent relay things but if that sat down correctly you build from that foundation building again and again and again that's not thus not how God works that the once the foundation is late than the house is built and as it says in Hebrews chapter three who is the house covered out and in the seminar number two whose house are we thank you whose house are we if we hold the power confession steadfast and sure whose house are we if we hold fast the confidence and rejoice in the hope firm under the in chapter three so so so we are that house God is building his temple his people and he wants us to move forward look upward as we talked about last time that the we don't arrive to look backward that Jesus was not there is not he's not on the cross anymore as sometimes you might see him carried and even paraded as I came through the streets you know braided hanging and crosses of these delays not there anymore it's like when the women came to the gym and I said at the Angels said to them she is not here now don't look for him where he is not key is risk and now he is a son and he is at in God 's right-hand presence of God amen so let us remember that the foundation is important it's essential it's really the most important part of the building documentation the building is strong access care second alas foundations what keeps of solid firms we can never get rid foundation but we can't just remain with the foundation it is a something to build on God is building his people into a holy and holy Temple to restore his image inhumanity so that we can reflect that image to the world that's the goal the foundation is essential but it's only just begin and what a wonderful beginning to dance and then in Hebrews eight six were reminded about Jesus that he has obtain a more excellent ministry a more excellent ministry by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant which was established upon better crowd assess moral excellence better better promises why would we ever want to go back why would we ever want to look back there is something much better but God has in store for groceries Hebrews eleven talks about and we'll get to that in one Hebrews chapter ten three or underscores emphasizes this point verse one for the law having a shadow of good things to come and not the very image of the things can never with those sacrifices which they offered year-by-year continually make the comers thereunto perfect for then would they not have ceased to be offered because that the worshipers once purged or cleansed should have had no more conscience of sins but in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year so what as we mentioned actually last time Hebrews is very clear Paul says that it's not just the daily service service through the year that was inferior the day of atonement was inferior to Christ ministers more excellent ministry than the whole the whole of the year daily yearly sacrifices everything his is better and it especially emphasizes here the day of atonement which they offer you year after year year after year those of remembrance it says every year of sense why because they were never really clans why because the blood of animals and goats and calves could not do that on the blood of Jesus computer and so these were shadows symbols we have the reality we can enjoy the light of the cross looking forward and upward this is one to the significance of this notice this is from the great controversy page four eighty eight and four eighty nine the subject of the sanctuary and the investigative judgment should be clearly understood by the people of God all needed knowledge for themselves of the position work of their great high priest have you ever heard people say I'm just not too long ago you know mention eighteen forty four is not something you can never understand you heard that all need a knowledge for themselves of the position and work of their great great high priest otherwise it will be one impossible for them to exercise the faith which is essential when at this time or two occupy the position which God designs them to feel essential for us to understand at this time all who receive the light upon these subjects are to bear testimony of the great truths which God has committed them so not only are we to understand them but what would you share them were to testify were to tell people about it and of course that's the best way to understand this you know if if you can't tell unexplained someone else probably don't understand very well right so there's this fits together as together well all who receive light upon the subject are to bear testimony of the great truths which God has committed the sanctuary in heaven is the very center the crisis were in behalf of men and concerns every soul living upon your it opens to be the plan of redemption bringing us down very close of time and revealing the triumphant issue of the contest between right just test and send it is of the utmost importance that all should thoroughly investigate these subjects and be able to give an answer to everyone that asked a reason of the hope that is quotation first Peter what a privilege for what great light we have been given notice the intercession of Christ demands behalf in the sanctuary above is as essential to the plan of salvation as was his death upon the cross by his death he began that work which after his resurrection he ascended to complete in heaven we must by faith enter within the wedding veil whither the forerunner is for us entered Huber six twenty there the light from the cross of Calvary is reflected where where is there where the sanctuary happen why because that's where Jesus is the light of the cross account free is shining from Jesus himself we don't need to look back to the cross we need to look upward and and and Jesus looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith this is where Calvary is focused in the person of Jesus himself there the light from the cross of Calvary is reflected their we may gain a clear insight into the mysteries of redemption the salvation of man is what you send expense to have the sacrifice made is equal to the broadest demands of the broken love God Jesus has opened the way to the father 's throne and through his mediation the sincere desire of all who come to him in faith may be presented before God he's opened the way this is the message of Hebrews he's opened up the way and it already begins with Hebrews chapter two verse ten Hebrews chapter two verse ten for it was fitting for him for whom are all things by whom are all things in bringing many sons to glory to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings that network Captain is a very interesting word in Greek are kickoffs that you might recognize a word our current arts are like arch angel archangel Arctic us it means the pioneer the one who blazes the trail ahead of someone he is the pioneer of our salvation he is the one that has made it possible at ever every one of these three stages Jesus has gone through an entry for us and now he is in the final stage in the most holy Place during the day of atonement ministry and so we can enter into that is better than in the day of atonement and the earthly sanctuary because cool could go there only the high priest only and when only once a year only on the day of atonement Jesus has opened the way for us now everyone must enter in with him by faith so Hebrews twelve is the other place this is the word arcade guys this is twice in Hebrews this is the second place is huge therefore since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us looking to whom Jesus the high near parking us and perfecter of our faith who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross disregarding its shame and is taking a seat at the right hand of the throne of God Marlis 's Jesus tinier and perfect of our faith we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses unit Jesus is the only one actually we don't have to only suppose that there's only been one person that has been victorious now we've all center except for Jesus okay he's the only one who has lived without sin but there are many who have been victorious over sin and there is a whole chapter of Hebrews vote to the so great a cloud of witnesses it says and the cloud of witnesses we don't have much time to talk about them but they richly repay study and thought and so will go really briefly through this chapter eleven beginning with able follow them of course it begins how by faith the only way by faith faith is always first and last and at all times by faith Abel offered undergone a more excellent sacrifice than Cain by which he obtained witness that he was righteous God testifying of his gifts him I had he been dead still speaks he still speaks his life still witnesses testifies to the fact that now is the only way of salvation through faith in him not through our fruit of our own works actually those works are according to Hebrews because we are dead in trespasses and sins of any works that we do without Christ living in the house are just works in verses five and six by faith Enoch was translated these should not see death and was not found because God had translated him for before his translation had this testimony that he pleased God and verse six very important lesson here without pay it is impossible to please him why for he that comes to God must believe that he is that he exists I I didn't believe that for a long time I was an atheist and high school took me some time to recognize that God exists now once I started opening my mind to the possibility I silence all around me in Scripture was very clear but we must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him in you might be liking religion forward to translation to being with Jesus you know as long as we focus on him doesn't matter what counts he is with us he art as we focus on Jesus he will lead us every step of the way until it cysts are a natural thing to step from here to have as it would be a very small step when we spend time with Jesus Noah first seven by faith Noah warned of God of things not seen as yet moved with fear prepared an ark to save his house by which he condemned the world he condemned the world how simply by choosing the way of faith building and are believing God and his word no real scientific evidence there wasn't people thought he had lost his mind he was a fool for God preparing an arc for the saving of his house by which he condemned the world became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Abraham per se call to go to a place he didn't even know where you going Abraham there where I don't know got going to show me okay by faith he sojourned in the land of promise as in a strange country stranger in a strange land dwelling tabernacles in tents with Isaac and Jacob heirs with him of the same promise why because he looked beyond he looked for a city which has foundations his builder and maker is God and ladies are not left out here Hebrews eleven mentioned Sarah through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed and was delivered of a child when she was past age because she judged him faithful promise him the way I remember this story I don't actually remember either Abraham resource sapping really that confidence when they were at first but as the years and years went by but even the New Testament is mentioned God has forgotten these things and so he's not going to inspire his profits to remember these things is gone from that record what a wonderful proximate wonderful truth of what God remember what God forgets we can't remember the others coming to time beautiful time when the most powerful things about time travel is that she says that when the sins are blotted out there born away into a land of forgetfulness and that even those who are living in trouble that they will soon they will feel unworthy they won't try to recall but they can't bring them find me know they've done little good but they can't bring first twenty two Joseph by faith Joseph we die when as he was dying made mention of the party and the children of Israel gave commandment concerning his bowl he lived in Egypt he died in Egypt but he wasn't end-stage and his mind and his heart were in the promised land where is our heart where are our thoughts what wonderful customs is Moses by faith Moses first twenty three when he was born hit three months of his parents thank God for godly parents because they saw he was a proper child him afraid of the king 's commandment by faith Moses when he was come years refused to be called the son of Pharaoh 's daughter choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God and to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season esteeming the reproach of Christ greater than the riches of Egypt what a choice reproach of Christ riches of Egypt which looks better on the surface and you know even after thousands of years ago to Karnak and Egypt and you look at those palaces very impressive you look at the Pyramids in Giza very impressive and we can imagine what they were like his Moses was strolling through those palaces how tempting that must but he didn't house on specs esteeming the reproach of Christ greater free had respect unto the recompense of reward respect to the reward verse twenty nine Israel people of Israel by faith they doesn't say who they are but we know who they are they passed through the Red Sea has by dryland which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned and then of course they say on the inside song of Moses went beautiful song victory and hundred forty four thousand will sing a song like that song Moses in the land verse thirty by faith the walls of Jericho fell down you know they were camped at Cadiz Narnia they were they were the majority was saying the other giants in the land the walls are reach up to heaven what I remind you of any place that one trend don't have Wall Street necklace was an exaggeration with God it was not a problem when they came and circled around Jericho those walls came tumbling was a problem the Giants verse thirty five women received their dead raised to life again others were tortured not accepting deliverance that they might obtain a better resurrection and others had trial accrual markings and scourging CA moreover bonds and imprisonment they were stoned there was on asunder were tempted were slain with the sort they wandered about in sheepskins and goat skins made destitute afflicted tormented of whom the world was working they wandered in deserts and mountains and dens and caves near these all having obtained a good report through faith received not the promise why God having provided some better thing for us that day without us should not be made perfect of course we don't have to put here because we also have a great controversy in all the we could look through the chapters in the great Congress and we could see the Waldenses and the wood Cliffs Hoss Jerome Luther John Knox the story continues right down to Christian history once set all of these people apart what's up faith say what we talked about earlier faith how do we define faith being fully persuaded that what God had promised he was able also to perform I know Hebrews eleven is different we all know but I like the one in Romans for that Abraham was being was fully persuaded that what God had promised he not we key was able also to perform they believed God they believe his word they hate for his work they die for the truth what are we prepared to die for what is valuable enough they stood all costs for what is true they did not fear man because they feared and love God more so what is this pathway was it me Hebrews ten beautiful description beginning nine first nineteen therefore brethren having boldness to enter the holiest by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way which he consecrated for us by the way the word holiest and he in Greek is the holy places high gear means the sanctuary as a whole by a new and living way which he consecrated for us through the veil that is and having a high priest over the house of God let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for he who promised is faithful census aims what Paul said his letter to the Romans he who since then would be fully persuaded that what God had promised he is able also to perform let us also consider one another in order to stir up love and good works not for sale in the assembling of ourselves together as is the manner of some but exhorting one another and so much more as he see the day approaching to see the day approaching you see the science around us that there and here is a wonderful step-by-step guidebook hold fast the confession without wavering without we consider one other encourage one another stir up one another with love and good works not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together when wonderful wonderful night Berkowitz Hebrews chapter twelve verse two continues this guidebook looking into Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross despising the shame and hence has sat down at the right hand and throne of God for consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls when I think about some of the things I've gone through they don't measure any to anything what Jesus went through I have been in places where I didn't know where our next meal was coming from there was no foods on the shelves in stores but Jesus always provide and it helped me to love you more you have not yet resisted to bloodshed to blood striving against him him a climactic comparison we won't really thought much about that you know how this chapter concludes with a beautiful contrast between Mount Sinai with the blackness and darkness and tempest and now signed heavenly Jerusalem innumerable company of angels those written in heaven which would you rather choose K Sinai with the tables of stone out there is Paul also describes me confess all new covenant segment themes chapter three once a ministration of death written and engraved in stones the other ministration of righteousness written on tablets of human hearts written by the spirit that spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus amen so while the investigative judgments going forward have sex now while the sins of penitent believers are being removed from sanctuary will kindly words all believers penitent believers are being removed from the sanctuary there is to be a special work of purification of putting away of sin among God 's people on earth you see there is a connection that has been established by Jesus he is the latter that is still reaching between earth and heaven through his people he lives on her and he in his person is before the throne of God in half for us beautiful picture and the work that he's doing in heaven he is doing also here through us on earth there's a special work of purification if his work is not our work is his work in our hearts of putting away sin among God 's people on our this work is more clearly presented in the messages of Revelation fourteen when this work shall have been accomplished what work work of purification the followers of Christ will be one don't be shy ready okay maybe it's too small print click read he lets it lets you save ready for his appearing then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant the Lord is in the days of oldness in former years then the church which our Lord is coming Mister received himself will be a glorious church not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing my privilege what a privilege to live at this time we can see the sweep of history we can learn from the cloud of witnesses we can look to Jesus who is standing for us and interceding for us can we stand for him are we willing to stand for him verse ten of chapter thirteen you know that that if you can put yourself back in the time of Paul when he was writing this the Temple was actually most glorious it was ever in the mid- sixties they just finished her that the work that Herod the great had started back you know it was already in building for forty years since the time of Jesus when they were still cannot they just putting the finishing touches on the temple a few years before Rob came and destroyed but if you can imagine you know you can kind of still see if you go through the Western Connell that the title underground along the Western Wall see the foundations of the Temple of enough temple but other foundations that the Temple Mount the amount on which the temple was built was nothing temple remains it's all gone not one stone upon another but just the just the a retaining wall that Herod had to build to make the kind glorious Tapley had in mind which the original Temple Mount was not big enough to do so he built he made it larger and he made a large routine while you can still see those brilliant stones and they looked like they were from yesterday and noticed that the workmanship is his glorious beautiful business that just the request is the retaining wall and Josephus describes countless glorious thing disciples said to Jesus look at these buildings if you can imagine what what kind of attraction that was and yet notice what he says Chapter thirteen verses and we have an altar were aware of day that is those who rejected Jesus and the priests who were carrying on the meaningless rituals which may have no right to eat which serve the town for the bodies of those beasts whose blood is broadened sanctuary by the high priest for sin are burned without the camp wherefore Jesus also that he might sanctify the people with his own blood suffered without the gate let us go forth therefore to him without the camp bearing his approach first year we have no continuing city but we seek one to come we seek one to come here we have no home is not Jesus is not here are homeless with him he's prepared a place for us to want to go there going to be there with him that his motivation if you love me you will keep my command the conclusion is simple if we look to Jesus and follow his steps we will be victorious we will not be led astray and I love it and I'll close with this statement from desire of ages page six sixty eight and six seventy one the Savior 's promises given on condition if you love me he says keep my command he said his men not in sin but from sin and those who love him will show their love by obedience all true obedience comes from the heart it was hard work with Christ it was hard work with Christ as we saw earlier he struggled he suffered he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane he said father if it be possible let this cup pass from me nevertheless not my will not my will but thy feet it was hard work with Christ and if we consent he will so identify himself with our thought streams so lend our hearts and minds into conformity to as well that when obeying him we shall be but carrying out our own impulses that's not humanly possible I know myself too well it is a miracle that is described here when obeying him but I believe that God said it I believe when opening hymn we will we shall be by carrying out our own impulses the will refined and sanctified will find its highest delight in doing his service when we know God as it is our privilege to know him our life will be a life of comic book obedience continual obedience through an appreciation of the character of Christ that's the secret through communion with God that is where sin will become hateful to us as Christ lived a long humanity so we may do if will take hold of the strong for string the comfort is called the Spirit of truth his work is to define and maintain the truth he first dwells in the heart as the Spirit of truth and thus he becomes the comforter there is comfort and peace in the truth but no real pizza comfort can be found in falsehood it is through false theories and traditions but Satan gains his power over them I noticed that it is how the same gains power through false theories and traditions is what we believe important is the truth important if for deceived visit dangerous it is back online says errors always dangerous it's never harmed us it never sanctifies it is through false theories and traditions the same gains his power over the mind by directing men to fall standards he miss shapes the care him through the Scriptures the Holy Spirit speaks to the mind and impresses truth upon the heart that exposes error and expel sent he expels from Seoul it is by the spirit of truth working through the word of God that Christ views his chosen people to himself yes I need to be subdued we need we need to be subdued by this book this is our safeguard in describing to his disciples the office work of the Holy Spirit Jesus sought to inspire them with the joy and hope that inspired his own heart he rejoiced as of the abundant help he had provided for his church the Holy Spirit was the highest of all gifts that he could solicit from his father for the exultation of his people the spirit was to be given as a regenerating agent and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been no avail without this without the spirit the sacrifice of Christ why because it's the spirit it applies the blood to the heart it was not just the sacrifice and the sanctuary that did things the blood had to be applied not just somewhere in heaven but to our hearts it had to make a difference without this the sacrifice of Christ within Northvale the power of evil had been strengthening for centuries in the submission amended the Satanic captivity was amazing still it's same could be resist and overcome only through the mighty agency of the third person the Godhead who would come with I like this no modified energy no manufactured energy no substitute Holy Spirit he would come in the fullness of divine power it is the spirit it makes a factual what has been brought out by the worlds Redeemer it is by the spirit that the heart is made pure through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature of Christ has given his spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil that's just about covers it does he has given his spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil and to impress his own character upon his church of the spirit Jesus said he shall glorify me how does he do that the Savior came to glorify the father by the demonstration of Islam so the spirit was to glorify Christ by revealing his grace to the world what a privilege we happen revealing Christ to others of being his hands his feet his love the very image of God is to be reproduced in humanity the honor of God the honor of Christ is involved in the perfection of character of his people do want that privilege following Jesus all the way all the way my Savior leads me what have I to ask beside to make out his tender mercies who to life has been my guide what a wonderful wonderful Savior we well maybe there is question to him as the father is more and will yes but they are in the vessel that well the day throughout the Old Testament is the rep redid the Lord is no looking to becoming of the Lord and yes it could include judgment I suppose in a sense I would want to necessarily excluded because it's a judgment as a process that there is a judgment that takes place now in heaven this is investigative judgments really for the Angels and for the universe we are that we are only dare I say then there is when Jesus comes there will be people resurrected to see and not only those who love his those awesome peers in the most those who were the most strenuous opposers of him they will be resurrected to see humans glory so there was there a set of rewards given it gives he will give every man according as workshop he and then of course the millennial judgment with regard to I think there will be some some things to sort out I know Paul and Stephen might have a little discussion of Stephen when he gave his life for Jesus Paul was there is no guarding the close of you know Stephen that was his last image of Paul meant when he sees in heaven I think there'll be some some some discussion there with you what happened I don't think of any animosity but very curious conversation and that will be repeated millions and millions of times then we have of course executive judgment so the other day the day is as little bit elastic were looking forward to that the new earth to the real the real possession of the inheritance that God had in mind this question here is a huge important question because you know really only the one who saves us as Jesus every step of the way sacrifice intercession cleansing and judgment this is Jesus who doesn't he is the high priest and so the work of the high priest and the earthly sanctuary in the Temple is only like week shadowy representation of the work that Jesus thought that was only symbolic but what Jesus does is real key he is a real sacrifice the real in Sasser and and that is that affects us now is intercession he was interesting study I I struggle you know what to leave in and what to leave out there's so much we can learn about his intercessory work for us it's it is as much here on earth as it is there before the father in heaven his work and that we must never forget it it has a vital connection with us that's all the time we have but thank you so much for your patience let's just conclude with programming father thank you for the beautiful beautiful picture of Jesus in the book of Hebrews presents to us and Lord we walk by faith and follow him day by day step-by-step until he can use may not be our experience and now the God of peace that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus that great shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the everlasting covenant make you perfect in every good work to do his will working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and will this message was included in Key West to twenty fourteen Phoenix Arizona USC a supporting
