5 – Christ in the Heavenly Sanctuary – 4/28 – 5/4

This week’s lesson – Christ in the Heavenly Sanctuary

This week we discuss the role of Christ in the heavenly sanctuary, what He does for us in the Most Holy Place in heaven. These lessons are important to understand in the end times.

“Make friendship with Christ today. Put your case in the hands of the great Advocate. He will plead your cause before the Father. Though you have transgressed the law, and must plead guilty before God, Christ will present his precious blood in your behalf, and through faith and obedience, and vital union with Christ, you may stand acquitted before the Judge of all the earth, and he will be your friend when the final trump shall sound, and the scenes of earth shall be no more.” –Ellen G. White, “A Vital Connection With Christ,” Signs of the Times, July 27, 1888.

By discussing what Christ does for us in the heavenly sanctuary, we affirm that our salvation is valid. In the heavenly sanctuary, the fate of sinners rests with Christ. The service of sanctifying us, of giving us the power to overcome sin, of helping us become better followers, and of reuniting us with our heavenly Father, is vital in the end time. To erase doubt from our minds completely, now we know that Christ is engaged in an important activity to ensure that we benefit from His death on the cross.

4 – Salvation and the End Time – 4/21 – 4/27

This week’s lesson – Salvation and the End Times

We live in a world filled with more violence, immorality, and suffering than ever before. People are seeking comfort and hope from the perils and deceptions of the last days—comfort and hope that Christianity can provide. But to an unbelieving world, what Christians can or cannot do often crowds out what Jesus taught. And for those who pause long enough to consider what He actually taught, many forget the two most important lessons: love and sacrifice.

“There are many whose hearts are aching under a load of care because they seek to reach the world’s standard. . . . The continual worry is wearing out the life forces. Our Lord desires them to lay aside this yoke of bondage. . . . He bids them seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and His promise is that all things needful to them for this life shall be added. Worry is blind, and cannot discern the future, but Jesus sees the end from the beginning. In every difficulty, He has His way prepared to bring relief. Our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to provide for us, of which we know nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making the service and honor of God supreme will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.” — The Desire of Ages, p. 330.
