    The ARK of the Covenant HAS BEEN FOUND since AD 1844! The Sabbath Commandment [Ex. 20:8-11] is seen!

    This is no joke, for there is irrefutable documented evidence, and it has been confirmed by the Holy Ghost Himself.

    Yes, brothers and sisters, it is True! The true Ark of the Covenant was found in AD 1844, and it was found located in a place which many forgot to look for it.

    Let's begin this real archeological hunt from the scriptures [KJB] as it will lead us right to it!

    Way back in Exodus, God spoke to Moses, and showed him the "pattern" to make on earth, which resembled that which existed in the Heavens ["... Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10 KJB] and "I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart." [Psalms 40:8 KJB]]:

    Exodus 25:1 KJB - And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    Exodus 25:8 KJB - And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

    Exodus 25:9 KJB - According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

    Exodus 25:40 KJB - And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

    Numbers 8:4 KJB - And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according unto the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.

    [​IMG]
    Joshua knew of this "pattern":

    Joshua 22:28 KJB - Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you.​

    David and Solomon, were given this "pattern" by the Holy Ghost/Spirit:

    1 Chronicles 28:10 KJB - Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.

    1 Chronicles 28:11 KJB - Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,

    1 Chronicles 28:12 KJB - And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:

    1 Chronicles 28:19 KJB - All this, said David, the LORD made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.
    Asaph the Psalmist knew of the "pattern":

    Psalms 77:13 KJB - Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?​

    Ezekiel was shown this "pattern":

    Ezekiel 43:10 KJB - Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.

    Ezekiel 43:11 KJB - And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them.

    Ezekiel 43:12 KJB - This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.
    Paul, the writer of many epistles and of Hebrews, knew of this "pattern" and what was shown to Moses, and from where this "pattern" came from. It came from the True Tabernacle in Heaven!:

    Ephesians 1:20 KJB - Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

    Hebrews 8:1 KJB - Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

    Hebrews 8:2 KJB - A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

    Hebrews 8:3 KJB - For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

    Hebrews 8:4 KJB - For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

    Hebrews 8:5 KJB - Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

    Hebrews 8:6 KJB - But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

    Hebrews 9:23 KJB - It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

    Hebrews 13:10 KJB - We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
    Daniel the Prophet knew of the "pattern", and even of the original!:

    Daniel 8:11 KJB - Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

    Daniel 8:12 KJB - And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

    Daniel 8:13 KJB - Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?

    Daniel 8:14 KJB - And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

    Daniel 8:26 KJB - And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.​

    Daniel 9:24 KJB - Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

    Daniel 11:31 KJB - And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
    John the Apostle knew of this "pattern", and even saw the original!:

    Revelation 1:12 KJB - And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

    Revelation 1:13 KJB - And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

    Revelation 3:7 KJB - And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

    Revelation 3:8 KJB - I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

    Revelation 4:1 KJB - After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

    Revelation 4:5 KJB - And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

    Revelation 9:13 KJB - And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

    Revelation 11:1 KJB - And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

    Revelation 11:19 KJB - And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

    Revelation 15:5 KJB - And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:​

    "... The law of God in the sanctuary in Heaven is the great original, of which the precepts inscribed upon the tables of stone, and recorded by Moses in the Pentateuch, were an unerring transcript. Those who arrived at an understanding of this important point, were thus led to see the sacred, unchanging character of the divine law. They saw, as never before, the force of the Saviour's words, “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law.” [Matthew 5:18.] The law of God, being a revelation of his will, a transcript of his character, must forever endure, “as a faithful witness in Heaven.” Not one command has been annulled; not a jot or tittle has been changed. Says the psalmist: “Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in Heaven.” “All his commandments are sure. They stand fast forever and ever.” [Psalm 119:89; 111:7, 8.] GC88 434.1

    In the very bosom of the decalogue is the fourth commandment, as it was first proclaimed: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day; wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.” [Exodus 20:8-11.] GC88 434.2

    The Spirit of God impressed the hearts of those students of his Word. The conviction was urged upon them, that they had ignorantly transgressed this precept by disregarding the Creator's rest-day. They began to examine the reasons for observing the first day of the week instead of the day which God had sanctified. They could find no evidence in the Scriptures that the fourth commandment had been abolished, or that the Sabbath had been changed; the blessing which first hallowed the seventh day had never been removed. They had been honestly seeking to know and to do God's will; now, as they saw themselves transgressors of his law, sorrow filled their hearts, and they manifested their loyalty to God by keeping his Sabbath holy. GC88 434.3

    Many and earnest were the efforts made to overthrow their faith. None could fail to see that if the earthly sanctuary was a figure or pattern of the heavenly, the law deposited in the ark on earth was an exact transcript of the law in the ark in Heaven; and that an acceptance of the truth concerning the heavenly sanctuary involved an acknowledgment of the claims of God's law, and the obligation of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. Here was the secret of the bitter and determined opposition to the harmonious exposition of the Scriptures that revealed the ministration of Christ in the heavenly sanctuary. Men sought to close the door which God had opened, and to open the door which he had closed. But “He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth,” had declared, “Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.” [Revelation 3:7, 8.] Christ had opened the door, or ministration, of the most holy place, light was shining from that open door of the sanctuary in Heaven, and the fourth commandment was shown to be included in the law which is there enshrined; what God had established, no man could overthrow. GC88 435.1 ..." - The Great Controversy, pages 434.1 - 435.1 - The Great Controversy, Table of Contents -- Ellen G. White Writings

    But there were prophecies within the Bible, that showed that there would come a desire from persons to change God's Law:

    Daniel 7:25 KJB - And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.​

    [​IMG]

    Acts 20:30 KJB - Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

    Maybe all the people who have "found" the Ark in different times and places can get together and agree which is the real one, and then show us a photograph.

    In the OP, I showed you from scripture [KJB] the "word" picture of the real ARK of the Everlasting Covenant in the True Temple of God in Heaven. You know, like those old typewriter pictures made from letters when properly typed out?

    this is a classic case of do not be led into every wind of doctrine. Dan 9 could be more likely split into the 1st 69 weeks and the final 7. a 7 year week would be 84 months and half of that is 42. That is exactly how many months the beast in Rev has authority over every tribe tongue kindred and nation. Jesus pointed to the abomination of desolation as a future event. This was not Nero is 70AD. Thes speaks of the man of sin. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[fn] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[fn] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. This is still future and as Hosea promised the return of the sacrifice after many days is linked with the return of the kingdom.
    Then the LORD said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover[fn] and is committing adultery, just like the love of the LORD for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans.
    2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley. 3 And I said to her, “You shall stay with me many days; you shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man—so, too, will I be toward you.”
    4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim. 5 Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the latter days.

    The mandate of Dan 9 is not finished until everlasting righteousness is brought in. The kingdom does come to earth for 1000 years at the 2nd coming.

    You are probably a 7th day adventist or perhaps JW. I would like to know as perhaps the direction of this conversation would be helped.

    Exodus 20:11 KJB - For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    Nehemiah 9:6 KJB - Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

    Psalms 146:6 KJB - Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

    Psalms 119:142 KJB - Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

    Acts 4:24 KJB - And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

    Acts 14:15 KJB - And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:

    Revelation 10:6 KJB - And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

    Revelation 14:7 KJB - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

    Everlasting righteousness began with Jesus.

    Jesus/Michael stood up in AD 34 [Acts 7:55-56 KJB], the end of the 70 weeks, in Daniel 9, and thus the close of the probation of the Jews as a nation, the sanhedrin, having rejected the Head and the body. He will so stand again [Daniel 12:1; Luke 13:25; Revelation 22:11 KJB, etc]

    AD 27 + 3 1/2 = AD 31; crucifixion. The first of the final week of the 70 weeks, as Jesus told Peter [Matthew 18:22 KJB]

    AD 31 + 3 1/2 = AD 34; Stephen martyred. End of the 70 weeks, as we see in Hebrews 2:3 KJB

    Parallels [the short version, two rainbows]:

    Jesus in AD 27 Anointed with the Holy Ghost, ministry 3 1/2 years, miracles, taken captive AD 31, rejected by the sanhedrin, condemned to death, dies outside the city

    Disciples/Apostles in AD 31 anointed with the Holy Ghost at Pentecost, ministry 3 1/2 years, miracles, Stephen is taken captive AD 34, rejected by the sanhedrin, condemned to death, dies outside of the city.

    Daniel 9:27 KJB - And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

    Hebrews 10:12 KJB - But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

    Hebrews 10:26 KJB - For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    Hebrews 2:3 KJB - How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

    Romans 15:8 KJB - Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
    Through Christ Jesus, it is the end of sin, He brought in everlasting righteousness, reconciliation, etc.

    Matthew 1:21 KJB - And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

    Hebrews 9:26 KJB - For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

    2 Corinthians 5:18 KJB - And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

    2 Corinthians 5:19 KJB - To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

    Hebrews 2:17 KJB - Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.​

    Non sequitur to OP. I am a member of the Seventh-day Adventist movement.

    The OP is about the Eternal ARK of the Covenant in the True Heavenly Sanctuary, in which, the OP points out, is the Eternal "Covenant" of God, the Ten Commandments, in the middle of which is the 7th Day the Sabbath of the LORD thy God.

    That which Moses was told to make was made after that "pattern" that exists in the Heavens.

    This thread specifically shows from scripture where the real ARK is, where the real Ten Commandments are and where it is written, of which no one can change, the 4th Commandment, the holy 7th Day the Sabbath of the LORD thy God.

    This thread is not about him. See the two OP. The other person who posted about that person opportunistically posted. I would rather they hadn't [and would do this thread a favour by deleting their post]. If we can keep to the actual OP instead. Thank you.

    The 7th Day the Sabbath of the LORD thy God is truth, and is forever:

    Psalms 119:160 KJB - Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

    Psalms 119:151 KJB - Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.

    Psalms 33:4 KJB - For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

    Romans 1:25 KJB - Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    Mark 7:8 KJB - For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.​

    There are those among the race of "men", that "changed the truth of God into a lie", and "worshipped and served" "the creature", thus they "hold the tradition of men" and lay "aside the commandment of God".

    They choose not to keep God's Holy Sabbath day, the 7th Day, the day in which Jesus rested in Salvation "It is Finished", and entered into His rest, in remembrance, in memorial, and thus as they forget their Creator, the LORD of the Sabbath [Mark 2:27 KJB], they also forget their Redeemer, and what He came to redeem them from [Matthew 1:21; 1 John 3:4 KJB], and they turn away from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    They break the heart of the Ten Commandments, breaking God's own heart, and they presume to call what they do - "love".

    Jesus said:

    John 14:15 KJB - If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    Exodus 20:6 KJB - And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
    The Ten Commandments, including the 4th Commandment [Exodus 20:8-11 KJB], are eternally written in the Heavens, even in the true Temple of God, in the true Ark of God.

    Look up into the Heavens, by faith, based upon the Word of God, and see God's eternal Law there, the foundation of His Kingdom/Government, the very thing that satan hates and seek to "change".

    Daniel 7:25 KJB - And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.​

    The Bible says:

    Proverbs 24:21 KJB - My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
    Look at the Seal of God and the Mark of the Beast [creature, the number of a man]:

    Revelation 14:6 KJB - And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

    Revelation 14:7 KJB - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

    Exodus 20:11 KJB - For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJB - Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man [Adam].

    Ecclesiastes 12:14 KJB - For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
    Revelation 14:8 KJB - And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

    Revelation 14:9 KJB - And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

    Revelation 14:10 KJB - The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

    Revelation 14:11 KJB - And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    Revelation 14:12 KJB - Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.​

    God is Light, and His character Glorious, indeed a coat of many colours, as a bridegroom, and the Justice of God and the Mercy of God meet, in the Sun and thick clouds of Rain to form the Rain-BOW, which surrounds His throne:

    Genesis 9:16 KJB - And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.​

    Moreso, His Word, the weapons of righteousness and the Light of His mouth, the arrows of infinte and almighty power, are terrible in majesty, awesome to behold, greater than we can imagine, exalted in the Heavens. There is much more to say, but perhaps later, but I will say that if one looks carefully at God's Law, the Ten Commandments, in the middle of His Law, which is the written transcript of His perfect character, you'll see His name there, surrounded with the description of who JEHOVAH is, and it is filled with His Glory, surrounded by a halo of beautiful colour, bringing Peace/rest to the sin sick soul.

    Colossians 3:2 KJB - Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

    Context, the Ten Commandments [Exodus 20:1-17 KJB]:

    Exodus 20:22 KJB - And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

    1 Corinthians 15:48 KJB - As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

    1 Corinthians 15:49 KJB - And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

    Philippians 3:19 KJB - Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

    Philippians 3:20 KJB - For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

    Colossians 3:1 KJB - If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

    Colossians 3:2 KJB - Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
    This was where Jesus' always had his mind/heart [John 3:12 KJB; constantly dwelling upon the Heavenly], on the perfect will [Psalms 40:8; Matthew 6:10; Luke 11:2, 22:42 KJB] of His Father:

    John 3:12 KJB - If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

    John 3:13 KJB - And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.​

    The 7th Day the Sabbath of the LORD thy God is rooted in His Glory, His character, which shone [revealed, manifested] from Day 1 [see also Link & Link]:

    2 Corinthians 4:4 KJB - In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    2 Corinthians 4:5 KJB - For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

    2 Corinthians 4:6 KJB - For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.​

    God's Law not only shows persons their need of a Saviour, even down to this very day, which demonstrates their inviolability and eternal nature, but they are also each a promise of God to the New Man, in that in the New Covenant, God says, "I will ....", and through faith in that promises understand the mercy-side of God's character [The Ten Commandments], such that, He promises that:

    we will not have other gods before Him.

    we will not make graven images or bow down to serve them.

    we will not take the name of the LORD our God in vain.

    we will Remember to keep His Sabbath, the 7th Day, the LORD's day, Holy.

    we will honour our Father and mother, and inherit the new Heaven and Earth, the land of the promise.

    we will not kill/murder.

    we will not commit adultery.

    we will not steal.

    we will not bear false witness against our near-brother.

    we will not covet our near-brother's wife or house or things.

    Why, because they are God's own immutable character, and we are re-made in His image and likeness.

    So why does it say that we will not commit adultery? It is because God is perfectly faithful in His promises.

    So why does it say that we will not kill/murder? It is because God Himself is eternal life.

    So why does it say that we will not steal? It is because God gave His only begotten Son, even all things in Him, withholding nothing.

    So why does it say that we will not covet? It is because God is self-less love.

    So why does it say that we shall honour our Father and mother? It is because God is honourable and honours those who honour Him, and New Jerusalem above is the mother of us all, and whosoever does the will of God is His brother, sister and mother.

    So why does it say that we shall Remember to keep the Sabbath holy? It is because God Himself is Holy, and the Author and Finisher of our Faith, perfecting the Love of God in us.

    So why does it say that we shall not take His name in vain? It is because the name of God is love itself, and He cannot deny His character.

    etc...

    Do you realize that anyone in breaking God's Sabbath and disregarding His explicit command, they have broken all the commandments?

    1. Placing another as 'god" before God, for they acknowledge another and obey them
    2. They have an idol, either of self, or another, they serve another, rather than the Creator [the LORD of the 7th Day]
    3. They have taken God's name in vain, for they do not have His character [which the Law is a transcript of]
    4. They have not rested, but worked, not believed but doubted
    5. They dishonoured their Father in Heaven [Isaiah 58:13 KJB], and their Mother [Galatians 4:26 KJB]
    6. They have murdered themselves, not resting, but continuing to work
    7. They have commited adultery having left subjection to God, for another's will
    8. They have stolen themselves from God, and thieved the time that belonged to Him, living as they pleased
    9. They have born false witness in the world as to who God is, what His character is like
    10. They have coveted their own ideas, plans and time rather than God's will.​

    Why is that commandment not important? It has the word Holy in it, the Holy Commandment [2 Peter 2:21 KJB]. It has God's actual name JEHOVAH in it, describing His authority, position and kingdom.

    The Sabbath commandment, a promise as are all the others, describes the moral aspect of God's character:

    1. God is relational, God to man, and man to man, an at-one-ing God.
    2. God is purposeful, God gives purpose, of work and rest.
    3. God is Creator and Redeemer, and concerns Himself in love to that which is created, thus He is Life
    4. God is an Author and Finisher, Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the ending, First and the last
    5. God is Holy, and the Sanctifier and the one who Blesses
    6. God is above nature, greater than creation
    7. God is the example for all creation, in that He worked and in that He rested
    8. God is selfless, being the giver, for it was given as a gift
    9. God is logical, mathematical, orderly, consistent, star systems, planets, orbits, days, years, cycles, etc
    10. God is no respecter of persons
    11. God is worthy to be worshipped, loved, etc
    12. God is the owner and sustainer
    13. God is all about family, cohesive love
    14. God is intelligent and wise, thus "remember" [a word, re-member, to bring back together as one, at-one-ment]
    15. God is fore-thinking
    etc.​

    Moses saw the "pattern" of the true Heavenly things themselves, having been shown them by God - even Jesus, and was to make the earthly things after their "fashion":

    Acts 7:44 KJB - Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
    In the days of Solomon [after David], he too was to make a grander, more lasting earthly model of the heavenly:

    Acts 7:47 KJB - But Solomon built him an house.

    The reason for this was because the one by Moses was a temporary tent/tabernacle, that waxed old and is like unto our bodies, but Solomon's temple of precious stones and metals was to be an model of something everlasting and [as earthly possible] that fadeth not away, like unto the bodies of the resurrection.​

    But God said:

    Acts 7:48 KJB - Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

    [That is to say 'human hands']
    Acts 7:49 KJB - Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?

    Acts 7:50 KJB - Hath not my hand made all these things?

    [the Hand of God, and is not His rest upon the Real Ark, His Throne with the Mercy Seat? [as His 'footstool', the mini-ark on earth made by Moses, etc], and what then is the foundation of His Government, the eternal Kingdom, the King's Dominion? His original eternal Law/Character.]​

    Notice, did not God make those things which are in the Heavens, even the true Temple which the LORD pitched and not man?

    Hebrews 8:2 KJB - A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.​

    Jesus was the one that came down upon the mount Sinai, with ten thousand times ten thousands, and thousands of thousands of angels:

    Consider:

    Jesus is called an "angel" [messenger - all through scripture, see also Malachi 3:1; Galatians 4:14, etc, even "archangel"; Daniel 12:1; Luke 13:25 KJB, etc, the highest messenger of the Father], dealing with office, not nature.

    Deuteronomy 33:2 KJB - And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

    God in awesome majesty came, and said that if anything approached the mountain, it would die, for God Himself was going to give the standards of the eternal Kingdom, from the very foundation of His eternal throne:

    Exodus 24:10 KJB - And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

    Exodus 24:11 KJB - And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

    [A covenant meal, upon a mountain, eating and drinking with Jesus.]
    The Ten Commandments are not transitory, and are never stated as such, nor implied in scripture to be so, but are eternal, permanent, immutable, even as "...it is written."

    Psalms 45:6 [see also Hebrews 1:8 KJB] - Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom [is] a right sceptre.
    The Ten Commandments were cut from this crystal blue sapphire throne of God [Exodus 24:10,12 [Hebrew: "tables of the Stone"; definite article ["even"], question then becomes, What stone? The very blue sapphire stone of the Throne of God in the very same context], and Exodus 28:28,31,37, 31:18, 32:16 "And the tables [were] the work of God, and the writing [was] the writing of God, graven upon the tables." and Exodus 39:21-22,31; Numbers 15:38-41; Ezekiel 1:22,26, 10:1]

    Even the Legends of the Jews, by Louis Ginzberg, picked up on this,

    "...Moses departed from the heavens with the two tables on which the Ten Commandments were engraved, and just the words of it are by nature Divine, so too are the tables on which they are engraved. These were created by God's own hand in the dusk of the first Sabbath at the close of the creation, and were made of a sapphire-like stone...." - Legends of the Jews, Volume 3, page 258 - http://archive.org/stream/legendsoft...ut/3lotj10.txt

    "...state that the sapphire employed for the tables was taken from the throne of Glory..." - Legends of the Jews, Volume 6; page 49 [see also page 59] - http://books.google.com/books?ei=UWH...#search_anchor
    Also according to the Targum,

    "...Then it was said to Moses: 83 "Ascend to the firmament and I will give you two tables of stone, 84 hewn from the sapphire of the throne of My glory, 85 gleaming like fine gold, arranged in lines 86 and written by My finger. 87 Engraved on them are the Ten Words, 88 refined more than silver that has been refined seven times seven [ways] -- that is the sum total of the principles..." - The Aramiac Bible, the Targums; by Phillip Alexander, page 89-90 [especially see Note 85] - http://books.google.com/books?id=hDw...page&q&f=false
    This is why the Jews placed the blue ribband around their garments to remind them of the Law:

    Numbers 15:38 KJB - Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:

    Numbers 15:39 KJB - And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

    Numbers 15:40 KJB - That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
    Again, it is written:

    Psalms 111:7 KJB - The works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all his commandments [are] sure.
    God carved the Ten Commandments with his own Finger ["...written with the finger of God." Exodus 31:18 KJB; "...written with the finger of God..." Deuteronomy 9:10 KJB], the very work of His own hands [Exodus 32:16 KJB].

    Psalms 111:8 KJB - They stand fast for ever and ever, [and are] done in truth and uprightness.

    Psalms 111:10 KJB - The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.
    God directly spoke the Ten Commandments aloud to all, from Heaven [Deuteronomy 4:12,15,33,36, 5:4,22,23,24,26, 9:10, 10:4, KJB etc]:

    Psalms 89:34 KJB - My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
    God reveals the Truth:

    Psalms 119:142 - Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and thy law [is] the truth.

    Psalms 119:151 - Thou [art] near, O LORD; and all thy commandments [are] truth.

    John 1:17 KJB - "... grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."
    Consider:

    Exodus 19:12 KJB - And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death:

    Exodus 19:13 KJB - There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.

    Exodus 19:19 KJB - And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

    Exodus 19:20 KJB - And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.
    Exodus 3:2 KJB - And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

    Acts 7:30 KJB - And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.

    Acts 7:35 KJB - This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
    Moses received instruction privately about many other things after God spake aloud the ten commandments:

    Deuteronomy 4:14 KJB - And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

    Deuteronomy 6:1 KJB - Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
    God's Ten Comamndments already existed before Mt. Sinai, thus, God gave further things through Moses because of "transgressions" [Galatians 3:19; 1 John 3:4 KJB] of that already existing Law of the Kingdom of Heaven/God. Thus the difference between that which went inside of the Ark, the Ten Commandments [written by God], and that which went outside to the side of the Ark, the book of the Law, written by the hand of Moses. God instructed Moses in all those things through angels that came to visit Moses, including the Son of the Father himself, the "Angel of the LORD".

    Consider that God's throne is Heavenly, the greater and true Ark, whereon is the True Mercy Seat, and beneath this, the foundation of the Heavenly Kingdom, God's eternal Law of righteousness.

    In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the earth, and worked 6 days, but in the 7th day, God rested, and entered into what He calls "my rest", the Sabbath of the LORD God. God was not upon earth when this was done, but in the 3rd Heaven.

    Isaiah 66:1 KJB - Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?

    Act 7:48 KJB - Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

    Acts 7:49 KJB - Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
    The Holy Ghost is still speaking to the heart. in this the finals days of mankinds probation, and therefore harden not your heart as they in the days of Stephen:

    Acts 7:50 KJB - Hath not my hand made all these things?

    Acts 7:51 KJB - Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

    Acts 7:52 KJB - Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:

    Acts 7:53 KJB - Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
    Notice, the remaining of Isaiah 66:

    Isaiah 66:21 KJB - And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.

    [Indeed, a nation of King-priests, an holy nation, a royal priesthood]​
    Isaiah 66:22 KJB - For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

    Isaiah 66:23 KJB - And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

    Isaiah 66:24 KJB - And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.​

    Isaiah looked into Heaven, and saw the Heavenly Temple/House of God! the Doors of the Posts, the Altar and Tongs thereof:

    Isaiah 6:1 KJB - In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

    Isaiah 6:2 KJB - Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

    Isaiah 6:3 KJB - And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

    Isaiah 6:4 KJB - And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

    Isaiah 6:5 KJB - Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

    Isaiah 6:6 KJB - Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

    Isaiah 6:7 KJB - And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

    Isaiah 6:8 KJB - Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

    Isaiah 6:9 KJB - And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

    Isaiah 6:10 KJB - Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

    Isaiah 6:11 KJB - Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,

    Isaiah 6:12 KJB - And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

    Isaiah 6:13 KJB - But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.​

    Daniel 8:11 KJB - Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.​

    [5]
    “... and the place of his [the “Prince of princes” [Daniel 8:25 KJB]; Jesus Christ, the High priest of the Heavenly sanctuary] sanctuary ...”

    Let us take notice, that so far, we have 3 specific items mentioned:

    [1] the Person, the who - “prince of the host” - Jesus in Heaven

    From the timeline of events, we know that the “prince of the host”, being Jesus is in Heaven at that point, in the Holy Place.

    There are many High priests, and chief shepherds of the Temple, whom are called the “princes” [H8269] of the sanctuary, and Jesus is the High priest, the Chief Shepherd over them all, though He be one of many “brethren” [Hebrews 2:11 KJB]:

    Isaiah 43:28 KJB - Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

    Ezra 8:24 KJB - Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,

    Ezra 8:29 KJB - Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.

    Ezra 10:5 KJB - Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware.
    Notice that Gabriel identifies this priestly aspect of Jesus/Michael, as the “great prince” who “stands for” the children of Israel, and intercedes for them before the Father and saves them from their troubles and enemies:

    Daniel 10:21 KJB - But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

    Daniel 12:1 KJB - And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
    Jesus is the arch-shepherd, the chief shepherd, over all of the under [lesser] shepherds [pastors] of the flock:

    [1] G750:

    The Koine Greek: ἀρχιποίμην
    The Transliterated Koine Greek: archipoimēn

    Jesus is the High [arch] Priest over many other priests [which we have seen are already designated as 'angels' or messengers [Malachi 2:7 KJB], of which His people, are a nation of kings and priests [Exodus 19:5,6; Isaiah 61:6, 66:21; Revelation 1:6, 5:10, 20:6 KJB], a royal priesthood [1 Peter 2:9 KJB]:
    [2] G748:

    The Koine Greek: ἀρχιερατικός
    The Transliterated Koine Greek: archieratikos

    [3] G749:


    The Koine Greek: ἀρχιερεύς
    The Transliterated Koine Greek: archiereus
    [2] the thing, the what and when - “the daily” - faith in the Heavenly ministration, being “taken away”

    From the context, and being directly connected to 'the Person' and to 'the place', 'the thing' is also dealing with an Heavenly subject, not an earthly one. The people of God are indeed physically on earth, and are an Temple unto God, yet they are an Heavenly peoples, citizens of that far country, being but strangers, pilgrims and aliens [Satan has reversed this] here, but whose names are written in Heaven.

    [3] the place, the where - “the place of his sanctuary” - the Heavenly Temple

    From the context in connection with the word “sanctuary” and from the word “place” [H4349], “מָכוֹן”, “mâkôn”, we see it refers to an Heavenly item, specifically linked with God's Throne in the Heavenly Sanctuary, and in other instances refers to God's dwelling place [Exodus 15:17; 1 Kings 8:13; 2 Chronicles 6:2; Ezra 2:68 KJB], even as a place of His footstool before His Throne [Psalms 104:5, combined with Isaiah 66:1; Matthew 5:35; Acts 7:49 KJB]:

    1 Kings 8:39 KJB - Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)

    1 Kings 8:43 KJB - Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.

    1 Kings 8:49 KJB - Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,

    2 Chronicles 6:30 KJB - Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:)

    2 Chronicles 6:33 KJB - Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name.

    2 Chronicles 6:39 KJB - Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.

    Psalms 33:14 KJB - From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

    Psalms 89:14 KJB - Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

    Psalms 97:2 KJB - Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

    Isaiah 18:4 KJB - For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.

    The signs (Luke 21:25) have come to pass after the time so specified (Luke 21:24), and we were told to "look up" into the Heavens, from whence cometh Jesus out of the Most Holy Place (Hebrews 9:27-28), having finished making the final atonement:

    Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
    Stephen understood these things, for Michael/Jesus then stood at the close of probation for the Jews as a nation, also, the end of the 70 weeks, Daniel 9:24-27; Hebrews 2:3; Romans 15:8:

    Acts 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

    Acts 7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
    Soon:

    Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.​
