Our theory as adventist has it that christ entered the most Holy place on 22nd october 1844 to start the finishing work of the plan of redemption,but stephen's testimony comfirmed it that christ was at the right hand of God as early as the time stephen was stoned to death(acts 7vs56).Where actually was christ before 1844?And which apartment of the heavenly sanctuary did stephen saw Christ standing at God's right hand? See acts 7vs56

4SP 268-269

But clearer light came with the investigation of the sanctuary question. Now was seen the application of those words of Christ in the Revelation, addressed to the church at this very time: "These
things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth and no man shutteth, and shutteth and no man openeth; I know thy works; behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it." [Revelation 3:7, 8.] Here an open as well as a shut door is brought to view. At the termination of the 2300 prophetic days in 1844, Christ changed his ministration from the holy to the most holy place. When, in the ministration of the earthly sanctuary, the high priest on the day of atonement entered the most holy place, the door of the holy place was closed, and the door of the most holy was opened. So, when Christ passed from the holy to the most holy of the heavenly sanctuary, the door, or ministration, of the former apartment was closed, and the door, or ministration, of the latter was opened. Christ had ended one part of his work as our intercessor, to enter upon another portion of the work; and he still presented his blood before the Father in behalf of sinners. "Behold," he declares, "I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it." {4SP 268.3}

Acts 7:56

7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

Hebrews 10:12

10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

RH June 12, 1900

"Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with the blood of others; for then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself." "This man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God." Christ entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them." He has qualified himself to be not only man's representative, but his advocate, so that every soul, if he will, may say, I have a Friend at court, a High Priest who is touched with the feeling of my infirmities.

ST, August 29, 1892 par. 4

Our hearts should be full of hope and joy, and we should be able to say with grateful tongues, Christ is risen, and is at the right hand of God to make intercession for us. He has carried his blood into the sanctuary, and will cleanse us from every sin. {ST, August 29, 1892 par. 4}

PH148 3.3

In the work in the Sanitarium, physicians, matron, and nurses are to co-operate with God in restoring the sick to health. In doing this, they co-operate with Him in restoring His image in the soul. Let us not limit the Holy One of Israel. Is not Christ officiating for us in the sanctuary above, at the right hand of God? Is He not making intercession for those who are suffering physically and those who are suffering spiritually? He invites them to come to Him who was dead, but is alive forevermore. {PH148 3.3}

---I believe that all the above quotes bring harmony on the issue. Was He at the right hand of God? Was He in the holy place? The above contains the answers.

God Bless,

Thanks Trent, I don't think I will have to comment. Thank you so much.
