Sanctuary Complex
God found us under the bondage of slavery. So He paid our debt by giving Himself as a ransom and literally sold Himself into debt bondage as our kinsman redeemer. This is why slavery by debt bondage is a part of the system recorded in the Bible. It allows us to understand the magnitude of the debt to which God submitted Himself and the conditions under which we are being forced to live in the house of Satan. The system of offerings is a prophecy about how this debt was paid.

The Offerings
Although these could not atone for sin they showed that God would take the form of a lower creature to pay the penalty of sin. Only certain clean animals could be used for an offering. The characteristics and the type of animal represented what would happen to Christ when He died for our sins.

Characteristics Of The Clean Animals.
Rules for Clean Animals Ruminant Stomach
Creature Clean Use Christ Stomach
First Death. Stomach 1 and 2. Vomit.
Second Death. Stomach 3 and 4. No resurrection (no regurgitation or vomit)
Animal Split hooves Food, sacrifice Represents the pierced hands and feet
Chews cud Vegetarian animals eat the seed or the green grass. Green grass represents people. The seed is the Promised Seed resurrected or coming up from the bowels of the grave and then dying to sin
Bird No scavengers Food, sacrifice They feed their young by regurgitation.
Rapture is represented by wings which can lift them high and can represent the arms stretched out
Insects Jump in the air. Four or more legs Food Lifted up in the air. No crawling creature can represent this. Insects with many feet cannot represent Him
Fish Scales and fins Food Sea creatures without fins and scales have the characteristics of the snake who represents the enemy. But since the sea is symbolically the enemy, no sea creature can be used as a sacrifice. Chewing the Cud. Food goes from the mouth to the first stomach, then to the second stomach and back up to the mouth. Then it goes from the mouth to the third and fourth stomach then to dung where it becomes earth

The Type Of Sacrificed Animals.
While all clean animals could be used for food only certain clean animals were used for sacrifice.

Lamb Kid Lamb Lamb Ram Kid Scapegoat Heifer Red Heifer Scapegoat Bull
The scapegoat is condemned during Yom Kippur. Then he is set free in the wilderness to die.
The global Yom Kippur started in 1844. The Holy Spirit came to tabernacle with us at Pentecost. Tabernacles will start at the Second Coming when we physically live with God. Satan, the scapegoat, will be wandering the broken earth for 1000 years. Then he will die.
There seems to be a relationship between the maximum age of the offering and historical time. If the ceremonial year to put away sin started with the baptism or crucifixion of Christ, then the maximum age and type of animal offered is related to the stage of time and the feast.
The sacrifice was made once at the crucifixion at the age of one year and is effective for all time. As each feast is fulfilled throughout time notice that the animal could also be older. In this time table, every year is approximately 1000 years.
The offering made to establish the covenant was also three years old. While Christ made this offering in the third year of the ministry, it also points to the fact that when a new heaven and earth is made, the covenant will be renewed using the blood that was shed three thousand years before.

The Lamb Of God.
Jesus is the solution for sin, planned before the creation of the world.

The Offering On The Cross
You shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God at the place where He chooses to establish His name. (Deuteronomy 14: 23)
Christ must die in the following way to satisfy the legal requirements.
The Lamb with Split Hooves
The Torn Veil Hung on Four Hooks
The Blood Sprinkled on Four Horns
The Breast Offering is Waving
The Shoulder Offering is Waving
The Thigh Offering is Lifted Up
The Wings of the Tzitzit

The offerings demonstrated that He would be lifted up with his arms stretched out like wings on the cross and His hands and feet would have four splits when He redeemed us.
His ordeal was patterned after the stages of Judgment which was also prophesied in Zechariah 11.

Apple Beaten and Skinned. The beating and pounding He was given by the Roman soldiers was symbolized in the process of making bread. The bread is His broken body. He was beaten, pounded, marked with lines (stripes) and poked with holes by the flagellum. When the bread is eaten, it is also broken and torn again. Then we gnash at it with our teeth and spit on it as we chew.

Apple Disassembling The Offering.
Jesus was not burned to death or cremated. So how did He become the burnt offering?
The Son of Man was placed in the fires and was not burned up. He was preserved because He was being faithful to God.
But these three men Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego fell into the midst of the furnace of blazing fire still tied up.
... Then Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the midst of the fire.
... the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men nor was the hair of their head singed, nor were their trousers damaged, nor had the smell of fire even come upon them.
(Daniel 3: 23, 26, 27)
» The Fire That Cannot Burn. God considered this emotional suffering to be worthy of its own prophetic memorial. It was symbolized as His burning. From the time He was arrested and tied up until His crucifixion, Jesus had fallen into the burning flames still tied up. The ashes that remained were His demoralized emotional state after the trials. What remained was also symbolized in the offering as His external carcass which was destroyed on the wood of the cross. The offerings were made in this order by the tribe of priests who had a specific duty in the disassembly of the sanctuary.

Apple How The Offering Was Cut Up.
Both the cutting up of the animal and the disassembly of the tabernacle illustrated the same events. The four sons from the tribe of Levi who camped around the sanctuary were responsible for disassembling the sanctuary.

  1. East: Aaron ("Selected Lamb"). The chief priests betrayed and condemned Him.
  2. South: Kohath ("Internal Organs"). His affliction and suffering after His arrest.
  3. North: Merari ("External Carcass"). His crucifixion and death outside the city.
  4. West: Gershon ("Roof, Fence, Curtain").The curtain was torn in two to give us access to heaven.

The sons of Aaron were responsible for cutting up the animal.
The Order Of Cutting (From The Mishnah, Babylonian Talmud)
Christ Priest and Body Part Cut (Quote From The Talmud) The Pieces Of The Offering

5Left flank, spine, milt (spleen) He then came to the left flank in which he left two thin ribs above and two thin ribs below; And he had done similarly with the other flank. Thus he left two on each side above and two on each side below ... and the spine with it and the milt attached to it

Taken off the Cross 3Left Hind Leg He then took the left leg and cut it off
All Prayers
AllSHEMA ... and salted them and came down and went to the chamber of hewn stone to recite the shema

The Mishnah (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Tamid 30b-31b), gave the rules on how to cut up the offering.
"Then you shall cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its entrails and its legs, and put them with its pieces and its head. (Exodus 29: 17)
The law also states that the bones should not be broken (John 19: 36; Psalm 34: 20).
They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break a bone of it; according to all the statute of the Passover they shall observe it. (Numbers 9: 12)
It is to be eaten in a single house; you are not to bring forth any of the flesh outside of the house, nor are you to break any bone of it. (Exodus 12: 46)
So, how did they cut up the offering into its pieces without breaking its bones?

Jesus As The Lamb Of God. An analysis of the order of the cutting of the animal and the pieces held by the nine priests do not show a sequence of events. Instead, the cutting order shows the assignment of responsibility for the death of Christ to three groups of people.

Jesus As The High Priest. One reason why the cutting order seems confusing is that the actions of Jesus as the High Priest also fulfilled the actions of the common priests that night. Jesus fulfilled his work as High Priest who performed this ritual from the final Passover supper until He said the prayers in Gethsemane. Then He went to submit Himself as the Lamb who underwent this same ritual.

Pierced With A Sword. Jesus was pierced with a sword to fulfill the requirements of the curse.
A Sword. The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. (Deuteronomy 28: 22)
Satan Will Suffer The Same. Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. (Ezekiel 28: 7)
Pierced. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. (Isaiah 14: 19)
The gospels do not record in which side Jesus was pierced. According to the experts on Roman culture, the sword was usually placed in the right side. However, since some things about the death of Jesus were contrary to the normal course of events we cannot assume that this was also normal.

Crucifixion Anatomy and Physiology
Christians (Violent)
Right Hand Left Hand

So let me argue for the possibility that the sword was thrust in His left side from a purely symbolic perspective. All these objects are symbolized on the left, so perhaps the sword is on the left.

Apple Washed and Salted. The offering was washed and salted for taste and to symbolize preservation. Bread was also offered with frankincense to also symbolize this preservation or embalming process.

Presentation Of The Offering
Meal The Heave Offering. The wave offering was swung back and forth to the right and left and the heave offering was moved up and down. Both were lifted up.

Meal Wave Offering: Lifted Up And Stretched Out Arms (Wings).
The breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the offering you may eat in a clean place ...
The thigh offering by lifting up and the breast offering by waving ...
(Leviticus 10: 14-15).
Then the priest shall take the ram's shoulder after it has been boiled ... Then the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. It is holy for the priest, together with the breast offered by waving and the thigh offered by lifting up; and afterward the Nazarite may drink wine. (Numbers 6: 19-20).
The actions required for making the offerings foretold the position of the body of Christ.

Meal The Four Wounds (Split Hands And Feet).
Whatever divides a hoof, so making split hoofs, and chews the cud among the animals, that you may eat. Leviticus 11: 3

» Horns (Spiked Crown). Clean animals tend to have horns although this is not a requirement. The shape of the horns on the head are clearly a representation of the crown of thorns.
» The Inner Veil. Although the sword caused another wound after He died, He had only four wounds when the offering was completed and He said "It is finished". It took four wounds to fulfill the covenant. The wounds of the four nails are symbolized by the curtain on four hooks, four split hooves, blood on the four horns of the altar and the four boiling places in the four corners of Ezekiel's temple.
» The Torn Curtain. The inner veil was also torn at His death and a sword tore His body.
» Five Wounds Of The Outer Veil. However, the curtain between the outer court and the Holy place had five hooks. This might represent the five wounds that He received in the outer court as He was hung up on the cross. The fifth wound occurred after He died to fulfill the curse.

Consumption And Disposal Of The Offering.
Meat Golgotha: The Place of the Feast.
He shall slay it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord, and Aaron's sons, the priests shall sprinkle its blood around the altar. (Leviticus 1: 11)
» North of the Altar. Jesus was crucified in the north outside the city, outside the Damascus gate.
» Around the Altar. The circuitous route that they took after His arrest to the six trials and to Golgotha actually encircled the sanctuary and the altar. See map of Old Jerusalem.

Mount Moriah. The same mountain where God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac was the same mountain where God provided His own son as the sacrifice for sin. The temple was built on Mount Moriah (2 Chronicles 3: 1).
God Gave His Son as the Meal. He said, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you." Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, "My father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." And he said, "Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?"
God Provided the Lamb. Abraham said, "God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." So the two of them walked on together. Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
(Genesis 22: 2, 7-9)

Meat Consuming The Offering. The offering or parts of it was consumed in several ways.

Eat The Seed Eaten And Vomited From The Bowels Of The Earth
The Innocent Passover Lamb The Sin Offering The Wavesheaf Offering
- Hour (3 to 6) (9 A.M. to 12 ) Darkness in Hour (6 to 9) (12 to 3 PM) After Hour 9 (3 PM) 6 PM Sunday
Trial Crucified
Mocked Mother Forsaken Thirsty Vinegar Offered Veil Torn Died Earth quake Sword Buried Resurrected
Boil Eat and Chew Swallow Vomit
Night Day 1 (Friday) Night Day Night Day 3
The animal that chews the cud adequately represents the resurrection. This is because the animal eats the seed and grass and vomits it up from its stomach.
Jesus compared His time during this period to the ordeal of Jonah in the belly of the fish and also to a seed dying. This was because He was the promised seed that would die. He was to be in the "bowels of the earth" for three days and He would escape from the grave, literally vomited out of the grave.
for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12: 40)
Buried in the Bowels. And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the stomach of the fish for three days and three nights. (Jonah 1: 17)
Vomited from the Bowels. The Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land. (Jonah 2: 10)
The Resurrected Seed. Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. (John 12: 24)
The preparation of the offering showed the stages of suffering that Christ would endure for three days through the symbolism of cooking and eating.

It is a fulfillment of the words of Moses. They would cannibalize their own children sent by God when He sent the curse.
Christ is the Son that was Eaten. So all these curses shall come on you and pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you would not obey the Lord your God by keeping His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.
Then you shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you, during the siege and distress by which your enemy will oppress you.
(Deuteronomy 28: 45, 53)

So they ate Christ, the Son who was given to them.
Christ is the Son Who is God. For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and this government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9: 6)

Separating The Young Goat From His Mother.
You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk. (Exodus 34: 26)
Christ was given to us through Mary. He remained with her until it was time for Him to be eaten. Jesus became the sin offering after He formally separated or was spiritually weaned from His mother.
In the prophecies of the Messiah we explained that the ritual to cleanse a woman after she give birth to a male child was a prophecy about the age of Christ when He would become the offering. He would be thirty three years old.
In this law of the young goat, we find some supporting evidence about his age when He was offered. Jesus was not to become the sin offering until He left His mother. God did not have a problem viewing Christ as the innocent Lamb from birth. However, He was not to be viewed as the sin offering when He was a child. Only after He separated from His mother could He formally become the sin offering. He was thirty three years old.
When Jesus then saw His mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "Woman, see, your son!". Then He said to the disciple "See, your mother!". From that hour the disciple took her into his own home. (John 19: 26-27)
He suffered for three days and nights as the offering. He became the sin offering for three hours.
» Removes Milk (The Weaning of Jesus). When a female was slaughtered the udder was cut open and the milk was squeezed out. This occurred around the time the genitals, testicles and thigh were removed in the male. This was when Jesus gave Mary to John so that He could fulfill the law that the goat should not be cooked in its mother's milk.
Fast Facts! Think about this. From Isaiah 65: 20 we learn that in heaven a person is still a child at 100 years old. This is at most the age of 12. Therefore, at the age of 33 Jesus was still under four years old on the eternal scale. From the law about the age of the Passover lamb, we learn that He must be one year old. So 33 human years is about one year on the eternal scale. He was still a baby who was forcibly weaned by removing the breasts of His mother.

Meat Disposal Of The Waste. His sacrifice on the wooden cross outside the north of the city was the disposal of the ashes, head, legs, skin and carcass of the offering. (Leviticus 4: 3, 11-12)

The Sacrifice Of Christ.
Burnt Offering and Sin Offering
The Innocent Lamb
The Submissive Bull
The Sinful Goat
The Donkey Who Bears Burdens
The Snake Lifted Up on the Cross
Several animals were used to represent different phases of the offering. The paradox is that as an innocent man, Christ must carry our sin and guilt as He is being offered. God represented these facts and the paradox of an innocent man dying for the guilty by using different animals. Christ was the ashes, the burnt offering and the sin offering that was killed in the same place outside the city.
In the place where the burnt offering is slain, the sin offering shall be slain before the Lord. It is most holy. (Leviticus 6: 25)

Christ As The Leper Messiah.
The rabbis and Jewish scholars used to apply Isaiah 53 exclusively to the Messiah. In particular, Isaiah 53: 4 is interpreted as the Messiah who is so scorned that He is treated like a leper. Unable to answer the dilemma of recognizing the suffering Messiah as well as the conquering Messiah, modern scholars have begun to apply Isaiah 53 to the suffering of the people of Israel only. But even in this misdirection they are not wrong. The people of God and this planet are treated like lepers. But the Messiah will also be treated like a leper and He is one of the suffering people of Israel.
Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him a leper [stricken], smitten of God, and afflicted. (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 98b on Isaiah 53: 4)
In Leviticus 14, the procedure to cleanse a leper is similar to the services on the Day of Atonement: But while the second bird is set free, the scapegoat is thrown off a cliff.

The Gender Of The Sacrifice.
All sacrifices represented Christ and Christ made every sacrifice when He died. However, in a few cases the animal could be female. The distinction seems to be based on the difference between the sins of Adam and Eve, although Eve flirted with temptation she was tricked into sinning and her sin was unintentional. On the other hand, Adam knew what he was doing when he ate the fruit.

Sacrificed For The Curse
The sacrifice also fulfilled the curses given to the sinners in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3: 14-18).

Ransomed And Made Holy
Jesus was also counted among the animals, that is why He was born in a stable and represented by a beast of burden (donkey and ox) in His final week. A first born human could be ransomed, but not an animal. As the lamb of God and the first born of Mary and one dedicated to God, Jesus could not be ransomed. He could only be put to death.
However, a first born among animals, which as a first born belongs to the Lord, no man may consecrate it, whether ox or sheep, it is the Lord's. ... Nevertheless, anything which a man sets apart to the Lord out of all that he has of man or animal or of the field of his own property, shall not be sold or redeemed. Anything devoted to destruction is most holy to the Lord. No one who may have been set apart among men shall be ransomed. He shall surely be put to death. (Leviticus 27: 26, 28-29)

» Exchanging The Just For The Unjust. Now here is a law which shows how we became holy by His sacrifice.
Now if it is an animal of the kind which men can present as an offering to the Lord, any such that one gives to the Lord shall be holy. He shall not replace it or exchange it, a good for a bad or a bad for a good; or if he does exchange an animal for an animal, then both it and the substitute shall become holy. (Leviticus 27: 9-10)
Only even exchanges can be made and then both become holy. So God did not exchange bad people for a good Man. If He did, then He would have to populate heaven with sinners. The blood of Jesus made us clean. After the cleansing offering, the exchange and ransom was made for us. Good for good. Inherent Good for acquired good. Are we as holy as Christ? Of course not. It is only because His blood covers us that it makes us look as holy in the eyes of God.
But how did the just die for the unjust as the scriptures said in 1 Peter 3: 18? It is a matter of timing. Jesus, the just man, made sure that He covered us, the unjust woman, with His blood before the fair exchange or substitution was made.
For Christ also died for sins, once for all the just for the unjust so that He might bring us to God ... (1 Peter 3:18)
Practically this is what Christ did. He exchanged His righteousness for our sins. But legally, the exchange was made after He had cleansed us with His blood in Gethsemane so that it was an equal exchange.
So Jesus was evaluated as a first born son, a woman, an animal (lamb), Satan (goat) and a sinner.

No Righteousness By Works
All signs of human work and effort are eliminated from the sanctuary and the priests who enter there. Righteousness is a result of the works of God alone.

Kosher Dietary Laws
Most people agree that many of the dietary laws are based on health principles, but then there are some dietary laws that defy explanation. So people obey them simply because the Torah says so. We will look at all these laws to illustrate that the dietary restrictions were Messianic prophecies, even those based on health.

The Process Of Eating. Before we look at the laws we must understand the meaning of the stages of the food preparation and eating process.

Kosher Sacrifices. To understand the Messianic symbolism of the dietary laws one must also understand how the dietary laws impact the sacrifices.

The Eternal Fires of Hell
This Continual Burnt Offering was reduced to ashes and removed to a place outside the city. The animal was burned up until it became ashes. It did not burn forever. It was the fire on the altar that was never to be extinguished, not the life of the burning animal.

Jesus suffered this punishment of eternal burning for us. The wicked will suffer eternal burning, but they will not be burning forever. Their ashes will be outside the city of the New Jerusalem.
Then the righteous will live in the eternal fire of God which will never go out.
Peace Offering. All the animals were used for a peace offering. It would take the symbolism of all of them to make peace between God and humans. It could be male or female.

Atonement. Any offering that makes atonement by bringing the blood into the sanctuary shall be burned. It is not eaten. It must be male. The ashes must be taken to a clean place outside the camp.

Sin Offering. In the ordination service, the calf or bull was used as the sin offering for the priest. (Leviticus 8: 2, 7). The goat was used as the sin offering for the people (Leviticus 16: 15). A bull was used for a sin offering if the people sinned unintentionally (Leviticus 4: 13-14).
Since Christ was perfect, when He offered the sin offering for Himself He did not appear like a goat, He was a bull. He was divine. It appears that the goat represents all rebellious and deliberate sins.

Wave Offering. All wave offerings belong to God and a portion of the grain offerings belong to the priests. Then God gives them back to serve the people. They are given as food for the priests or as people who serve in the temple of God. (Numbers 8: 13-19. Leviticus 7: 9, 34)

Fat and Blood. Not consumed by Humans. The fat is burned, the blood is poured out into the earth. The atonement is made when the earth is burned up at the Third Coming and Satan is punished and the blood is burned.
The Offering of Christ. Jesus died for our sins, and guilt and to save us from the eternal fires of the second death. He was the sin offering, the guilt offering and the burnt offering. His body was broken as the grain offering. And his blood was poured out as the drink offering. He was the wave offering lifted up on display between heaven and earth with His arms stretched out and thighs lifted up. He was also the peace offering that reconciled us with God.
The Catholic doctrine of sin and purgatory says that nothing that was done on the cross frees us from guilt or punishment from guilt. Therefore, everyone must experience purgatory so that they can be punished for their guilt.
This view is clearly not supported by the many offerings that Jesus represented at the cross.
Christ came in the Outer Court to be sacrificed. This provided two streams, one for sin and the other for impurity.
We are now in the Holy Place. We do communion and baptism to remind us of what God has accomplished for us in the Outer Court. Now, we feed on the light from the Word of God and the Bread of Life. Prayer at the altar of incense is our access to God. Bible study, prayer and faith in the blood of the sacrificed Jesus is our religion.
After the Second Coming we will be in the Most Holy Place at the Ark of the Covenant, the throne of God.
In another lesson we will learn how the feasts combine with the sanctuary to fully represent the work of Christ and the history of salvation.
... all things written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled. (Luke 24: 44)
You search the scriptures for you think that in them you have eternal life. It is these that testify about Me.
For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.
(John 5: 39, 46)

With one sacrifice Christ became the continual burnt offering, the sin and guilt offering, His body was the grain offering and His blood was the drink offering. He also became the peace offering for thanksgiving and free will and the first fruits of the wave sheaf. Then He was ordained as the High Priest, using Himself as the offerings.
These offerings met all the legal requirements of time and location and the manner in which they were presented. He was waved and lifted up and killed whole.
God considers the time that Jesus was praying to the time that He was killed as a part of the sacrificial period.

Many original insights came because of the gift of knowledge. The gift appears to be centered around teaching me about Christ.
Here are some examples. The Mother's milk and the young goat, the offering, the wave offering and the thigh offering lifted up, the split hooves and the four wounds, the gender the veil on four hooks, the shape of the cross, goat offering, vomited from the bowels, Christ as a serpent, the time prophecy in the curtains, the colors of God, blessings and curses, Christ suffers the curses, eligibility rules and the inauguration time line. Finally the SHMA and the five Jewish signs on July 10-11 2006. Completed writing on July 22.
May 16-17, 2007. The Holy Spirit taught me about the camp positions of the tribes. 25 October 2009 - the crossed hands.
