After the fall of Adam and Eve, God instituted a plan of action to restore His creation to a loving relationship with Him. But before God sent His Son to serve as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world, He sought to develop a covenant relationship with His people to prepare them for the Messiah and their role in spreading the Word of God to a fallen world.
God sought to be a sanctuary—a place of refuge or safety—for His people. He sought to dwell among them and teach them His ways. He sought to point them to the coming Messiah and the work of atonement that Jesus would perform.
After Christ’s incarnation, life and ministry, death on the cross, and ascension, God once again sought to be a sanctuary for His fledgling church by dwelling in them through the Holy Spirit.
Glorious Redemptive Act of the Sanctuary of God examines the wilderness sanctuary service, the earthly/human sanctuary, and the heavenly sanctuary to gain a better understanding of God’s plan for His people in the closing days of earth’s history. The time is short, and we must be ready!
