THE LAW IN THE MOST HOLY PLACE
The earthly sanctuary was a pattern according to the heavenly sanctuary
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 thingsaccording to the pattern showed to thee in the mount. (HEBREWS. 8:5).And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that Ishow thee, [after] the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instrumentsthereof, even so shall ye make [it]. And look that thou make [them] after their pattern, whichwas showed thee in the mount. (EX. 25: 8-9,40).And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, into the oracleof the house, to the most holy [place, even] under the wings of the cherubims. [There was]nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when theLORD made [a covenant] with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.(1 Kings. 8:6, 9).
 
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 anacknowledgment of the claims ofGod's law, and the obligation of the Sabbath of the fourthcommandment. Here was the secret of the bitter and determined opposition to theharmonious exposition of the Scriptures that revealed the ministration of Christ in theheavenly 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 noman openeth,” had
 
declared, “Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man canshut 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 fourthcommandment was shown to be included in the law which is there enshrined; what God hadestablished, no man could overthrow. {GC88 435.1}The work of judgment which began in 1844, must continue until the cases of all are decided,both of the living and the dead; hence it will extend to the close of human probation. That
men may be prepared to stand in the Judgment, the message commands them to “fear God,and give glory to him,” “and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the
fountains o
f waters.” The result of an acceptance of these messages is given in the words,“Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” In order to be
prepared for the Judgment, it is necessary that men should keep the law of God. That law will
be the standard of character in the Judgment. The apostle Paul declares, “As many as have
sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; . . . in the day when God shall judge the secrets
of men by Jesus Christ.” And he says that “the doers of the law shall be justified.” *Romans
2:12-
16.+ Faith is essential in order to the keeping of the law of God; for “without faith it isimpossible to please him.” And “whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” *Hebrews 11:6; Romans
14:23.] {GC88 435.2}Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life,and may enter in through the gates into the city. (REV. 22:14).
 
Here is the patience of thesaints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. (REV.14:12).
 
The seal of God is in his law
We are familiar with the term “seal” in connection with legal documents. A seal contains the name of 
the person issuing the document, his office or authority, and the extent of his jurisdiction. The sealplaced upon the foreheads of the one hundred and forty-four thousand, is the seal of the living God.
Seals are attached to laws and legal documents; therefore we should look for God’s seal to be
attached to His law. The prophet Isaiah, looking down through the ages, saw a people who wereexpecting Christ to come from the heavenly sanctuary to the earth, and the message of God to them
was, ‘‘Seal the law among My disciples.”(ISAIAH. 8:16)
{THE CROSS & SHADOW p. 151}The fourth commandment contains,
 first, the name, “the Lord thy God;” second, the state
ment 
thatthe Lord thy God is the Creator of all things, and therefore has power to issue this law;
third, a
record
of His territory, which consists of “heaven and earth,” which He created.
(Exodus 20:8-11) The fourthcommandment requires all who dwell in the territory of the Lord God the Creator, to keep holy theseventh day of the week, which He has sanctified and blessed, (Genesis 2:2,3 ) as a memorial of Hiscreative work. The Sabbath commandment contains the seal of the law. The word sign is sometimes
used as a synonym for “seal.” (Romans 4:11)
Of the Sabbath God says:
“It is a
sign between Me and the children of Israel 
forever.”
(Exodus 31:13,16,17) THE SHADOW & CROSS p. 152)
Moreover also I gave them My Sabbaths, to be a
sign between Me and them, that they 
might know
that I am the Lord that sanctify them.”
(Ezekiel 20:12) God blessed and sanctified the Sabbath;(Genesis 2:2,3)
and to the one who will keep it holy, it is a sign, or seal, of God’s power to sanctify
him. (Isaiah 58:13,14)
There is a knowledge of God in the proper observance of the Sabbath. “Hallow
My Sabbaths; and they shall be a
sign between Me and you, that ye may know 
that I am the Lord your
God.”
(Ezekiel 20:20) {THE SHADOW & CROSS p. 152)
