Hebrews 8: 1- 5 > Heavenly Sanctuary

 The  Heavenly  Sanctuary
  Hebrews 8: 1 - 5          ( King James Version ) 
    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;  
8:2   A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.  
8:3   For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore [it is] of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.  
8:4   For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:  
8:5   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 showed to thee in the mount.  
   Hebrews 8: 1-5        ( New International Version )
  The point we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Magesty in heaven,
v. 2  >  twho serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by man.
v. 3 >  Every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, and so it was necessary for this one also to have something to offer.
v. 4 >   If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already men who offer the gifts prescribed by the law.
v. 5 >   They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and a shodow of what is in heaven. That is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: "See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain."
