Nearly 25 centuries ago, the angel Gabriel foretold the time Christ would transfer His ministry from the holy place to the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary in preparation for the time when divine intercession for man's salvation would be finished.
Christ has revealed His plans about the reward of the righteous and the final disposition of evildoers inside the pages of the Bible. The Most High has assured us in His word that the root and branches of sin will be consumed into smoke and ashes—evil shall not rise the second time.
The sanctuary is mentioned in both the beginning and end of the Bible. Between these entries are some of the most fascinating and inspiriting themes that can occupy the human mind is revealed. The study of the sanctuary may properly engage the interest of the one who desires to understand the purposes of the Creator in the salvation of the rigorous and the final disposition of evil.
