Heaven’s Temple

“Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own.” Hebrews 9:23-25

“And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened; and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple, and there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder and an earthquake and a great hailstorm.” Revelation 11:19

Solomon’s temple was merely a copy of the real thing in heaven. Just as men will have to go to Jerusalem in the Millennium to offer up sacrifices (Zechariah 14), spiritual men will have to do the same at the heavenly temple.
