The Everlasting Gospel

as illustrated

in the sanctuary ceremonials

 


 

 

The high priest with his portable censer

 

Preface

This book is an attempt to set out the gospel as it is illustrated in the Old Testament sanctuary services. I do not profess to have covered it all, or even that what is written is the complete truth, but it is presented here as a help to get started. There are many layers of understanding in the Bible and this is merely what the Spirit of God has been able to show me so far.

The following words were published in 1900.

*************** (Begin quote)

{COL 133.1}

The significance of the Jewish economy is not yet fully comprehended.

Truths vast and profound are shadowed forth in its rites and symbols.

The gospel is the key that unlocks its mysteries.

Through a knowledge of the plan of redemption, its truths are opened to the understanding. Far more than we do, it is our privilege to understand these wonderful themes. We are to comprehend the deep things of God.

Angels desire to look into the truths that are revealed to the people who with contrite hearts are searching the word of God, and praying for greater lengths and breadths and depths and heights of the knowledge which He alone can give.

*************** (End quote)

This book is published here with the prayer in my heart that you may comprehend those truths.
