Sacrifices in the Pre-Millennial Kingdom?

What's the Truth about . . . the Korbanot? - Jewish Action

The ancient Israelites, as we know performed many sacrifices as part of the Ceremonial Law and custom. This we also know was the plan by God to point to the Savior. The type was to meet anti-type.

Yet something profound is found in the prophecy
, so profound that, yours truly suggests it is one of the greatest mysteries yet to be revealed.

Before we delve into this, our final message of Elijah, the Lord’s Rod message is clear. The Lesson of Zech. 4 shows that TWO prophets in the Christian dispensation were to go into the Scriptures and bring forth the prophetic Word and give us “meat in due season”. The well known symbolic Chart of this prophecy was made by our last prophet–Victor T. Houteff.

THE GOLDEN BOWL -Zechariah chapter four - Adventist Online

You notice those big pipes taking oil (prophetic Truth) from the two trees (old and new testaments) as described in Zech. 4. This lesson is profound, as it warns us that these prophets are the ONLY ones able to go into the Bible and make interpretations of the prophecies. Yet sadly many, even some so called present truth believers don’t know or care to abide by the lesson!

A recent dialogue between present truth believers showed a perfect example of this. Let us now read the mysterious Scripture —

“And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering and the sin offering and the trespass offering.

40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables.

41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.

42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering, of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice.

43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.” (Ezekiel 40:39-43)

And also —

18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord God; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.

19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord God, a young bullock for a sin offering.

20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.

21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.

22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.

23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

24 And thou shalt offer them before the Lord, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto the Lord.

25 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish.

26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves.

27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, saith the Lord God.” (Ezek. 43:18-27)

Now why is this so strange? Well obviously it is describing what will take place in the PRE-MILLENIAL KINGDOM — that is why. We know that Jesus was the fulfillment of the blood sacrifices, yet the Word declares it shall begin anew in the soon to be set up Loud Cry Kingdom (?) A true mystery!

Now , what are we do here? Do we say “No Lord, we shall NOT have such things.” Or, “Lord, I do not know what this is about and wait upon your Kingdom to see.” Brethren the only safe course is the latter.

As we remember counsel that we are to take what the INSPIRED prophets get from the Bowl (Inspired interpretations), we, therefore, look to them for answers. Our last prophet, had just a few lines to say about them , let us read —

“..the antitypical temple is to be built (Ezekiel chapters 40-43) and the cities are to be spread abroad.” (Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 11, page 11)

“… Ezekiel’s description of the mystic temple (chapters 40-47) which is yet to be built, could be the blueprint of Zerubbabel’s antitypical temple.” ( 1 TG, no.13, p.6)


Thus we see that Inspiration is silent to a large degree, just reaffirming that the anti-typical Temple shall be built according to the first temple (Zerubbabel). Therefore we have no basis upon which to take a stand –yes or no! The Word stands as it is.

Those who declare that the above prophecies are false based on so and so, are putting their own pipes into the Golden Bowl as it were.

“knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20-21)
