 The Certainty of theAwakening Message
Volume III
The Present Truthas It Is inthe Sanctuary
A WORD FROM THE PUBLISHERSMore than one hundred and twenty years ago God gave to His remnant people agreat light that would lead them safely and swiftly to the city of God. That light shonefrom the most holy place of the sanctuary in heaven. Since that time, four generations of Adventists have come and gone. Many are beginning to think that the city is a great wayoff. Few really expect to enter it in their lifetime. Some are trying to proceed along the path by the light of the sparks of their own kindling.Recently, the children of Zion have been visited by a newßold message. It is themessage of that open door to the most holy place. Some have been startled by it. Somehave been infuriated by it. Some have been awakened by it. The message is a revival andre-emphasis of the great sanctuary truth which came so definitely to Godäs people in1844. Indeed, it is the fulfilment of William Milleräs dream, recorded in the Spirit of Prophecy:I dreamed that God, by an unseen hand, sent me a curiously wrought casket aboutten inches long by six square, made of ebony and pearls curiously inlaid. To the casketthere was a key attached. I immediately took the key and opened the casket, when, to mywonder and surprise, I found it filled with all sorts and sizes of jewels, diamonds,
 precious stones, and gold and silver coin of every dimension and value, beautifullyarranged in their several places in the casket; and thus arranged they reflected a light andglory equaled only by the sun.I thought it was not my duty to enjoy this wonderful sight alone, although myheart was overjoyed at the brilliancy, beauty, and value of its contents. I therefore placedit on a center table in mz room and gave out word that all who had a desire might comeand see the most glorious and brilliant sight ever seen by man in this life.The people began to come in, at first few in number, but increasing to a crowd.When they first looked into the casket, they would wonder and shot for joy. But when thespectators increased, everzone would begin to trouble the jewels, taking them out of thecasket and scattering them on the table.I began to think that the owner would require the casket and the jewels again atmy hand; and if I suffered them to be scattered, I could never place them in their places inthe casket again as before; and felt I should never be able to meet the accountability, for itwould be immense. I then began to lead with the people not to handle them, nor takethem out of the casket; but the more I pleaded, the more they scattered; and now theyseemed to scatter them all over the room, on the floor and on every piece of furniture inthe room.I then saw that among the genuine jewels and coin they had scattered aninnumerable quantity of spurious jewels and counterfeit coin. I was highlz incensed attheir base conduct and ingratitude, and reproved and reproached them for it; but the moreI reproved, the more they scattered the spurious jewels and false coin among the genuine.I then became vexed in mz physical soul and began to use physical force to pushthem out of the room; but while I was pushing out one, three more would enter and bringin dirt and shavings and sand and all manner of rubbish, until they covered every one of the true jewels, diamonds, and coins, which were all excluded from sight. They also torein pieces my casket and scattered it among the rubbish. I thought no man regarded mysorrow or my anger. I became wholly discouraged and disheartened, and sat down andwept.While I was thus weeping and mourning for mz great loss and accountability, Iremembered God, and earnestly prayed that He would send me help.Immediatelz the door opened, and a man entered the room, when the people allleft it; and he, having a dirt brush in his hand, opened the windows, and began to brushthe dirt and rubbish from the room.I cried to him to forbear, for there were some precious jewels scattered among therubbish. He told me to "fear not," for he would "take care of them."Then, while he brushed the dirt and rubbish, false jewels and counterfeit coin, all
rose and went out of the window like a cloud, and the wind carried them away. In the bustle I closed my eyes for a moment; when I opened them, the rubbish was all gone. The precious jewels, the diamonds, the gold and silver coins, lay scattered in profusion allover the room.He then placed on the table a casket, much larger and more beautiful than theformer, and gathered up the jewels, the diamonds, the coins, bz the handful, and castthem into the casket, tillnot one was left, although some of the diamonds were not bigger than the point of a pin.He then called upon me to "come and see." I looked into the casket, but my eyeswere dazzled with the sight. They shone with ten times their former glory. I thought theyhad been scoured in the sand by the feet of those wicked persons who had scattered andtrod them in the dust. They were arranged in beautiful order in the casket, every one in its place, without any visible pains of the man who cast them in. I shouted with very joy, andthat shout awoke me. --
 Early Writings,
pp. 81-83.Today, the man with the dirt brush is resetting the precious gems of 1844 in theframework of truth. Yes, it is the old light of the pioneers, but the beautiful order andarrangements of those gems of truth in the setting of the sanctuary makes them shine withten times their former luster. The following article is a sample of the thrilling certainty of the present truth as it is in the Sanctuary.
The Present Truth as It Is in the Sanctuary
And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary becleansed (Daniel 8:14).Behold I have set before thee an open door (Revelation 3:8).
The light from the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary is the true light of the everlasting gospel. The open door of the most holy place gives us more light on lastday events, more light on Jesus Christ, and more light on God's purpose for His people.THE HISTORICAL TRUTH OF THE SANCTUARYIt is necessary that we first become established upon the great historical truths of the sanctuary. Unless we do this, we will never understand correctly the great gospelrealities wich it teaches.We can be certain that there is a sanctuary in heaven. This is as sure as the factthat our great High Priest is the minister of that sanctuary in heaven.. We know that uponHis ascension to the right hand of God the Father, Jesus commenced His ministration inthe first apartment of the heavenly sanctuary, and carried forward the continual mediationthat was the antitype of the
service in the first apartment of the ancient tabernacle.He continued His mediation in the first apartment of the heavenly sanctuary for eighteenhundred years.Based on the certainty of the sure word of prophecy, we know that at the close of
