Notes 4 – 7 below, apply to 1844 – the Close of Probation.

4: THE CLEANSING OF THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY AND THE BLOTTING OUT OF SINS FROM THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY IS ONE AND THE SAME EVENT OR EXPERIENCE. [See references #2 this section. God is now investigating character, sealing His people, and blotting out sin from the heavenly sanctuary. TM 448.

5: THE CLEANSING OF THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY [Dan. 8:14 AND THE BLOTTING OUT OF SINS [Acts 3:19; Heb. 9] ARE ACCOMPLISHED OVER A PERIOD OF TIME [1844 TO THE CLOSE OF PROBATION]. It is not confined or limited to one single, instantaneous act after the National Sunday Law or just before the close of probation. See quotes under #2 this section.

6: THE CLEANSING OF THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY IS CONTINGENT UPON THE CLEANSING OF OUR BODY TEMPLES, by sending our sins “beforehand to judgment.” 1SM 124.
We should not try to divorce there two great subjects or experiences which are inseparably connected. Neither should we confuse the two or try to fuse them into one and the same experience. There are (1) two different temples in (2) two different places. (3) cleansed in two different ways. (4) at two different times!
The cleansing of the soul temple is distinctly different from the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary. But the heavenly sanctuary cannot be cleansed until the soul temples of God’s people are cleansed. The heavenly sanctuary cannot be cleansed as long as we continue to sin and thus defile it. [See quotations under #2 this section.

7: OUR SINS ARE BLOTTED OUT OF THE HEAVENLY SANCTUARY BEFORE THE CLOSE OF PROBATION. When Jesus leaves the sanctuary, all of our sins will have been blotted out. EW 48. Christ removes the sins of His people from the heavenly sanctuary at close of His ministration. (1844 to the close of probation); GC 422; EW 280, 281. Although Christ has always been ministering in behalf of sinners in the heavenly sanctuary, He did not begin to cleanse it and blot out the record of sin until Oct. 22, 1844; Dan. 8:14.
