The Scriptures have several distinct meanings for this word, according as the word itself is made use of. The apostle to the Hebrews describes the sanctuary how it was appointed, (Hebrews 9:1-5) No doubt the sanctuary was a type of JEHOVAH'S throne in heaven; hence (Psalms 102:19) the Lord is represented as "looking down from the height of his sanctuary, from heaven did the Lord behold the earth?" The church of Christ is represented as the Lord's sanctuary under the type of the holy land. (Exodus 15:17-18) And there is another very sweet and precious figure of the Lord's sanctuary, when his people are considered in this light. The psalmist celebrates this in one of the loftiest strains of sacred poetry: "When" (Psalms 114:1-8) "Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion. The sea saw it and fled, Jordan was driven back."
