In the Tabernacle that The LORD gave Moses instructions to build, there is a piece called The Seven Golden Candlesticks, or a Menorah.
They were lit with fire representing the illumination of The Holy Spirit, or Revelation, for the person entering into the Holy of Holies.
It was part of the prototype of what Jesus would become for you when you believe in Him as your Lord and Savior.
In the outer court… the Brazen Altar where the Lambs were sacrificed… was the prototype of The Cross on which He gave Himself as the ransom for you.
The Bronze Laver was representative of the washing of water by the Word. Jesus is the Word that was Sent, “Hereby are you cleansed by the Word I have spoken to you.” (John 15:3).
In The Holy Place is The Table of Shew Bread (Communion). “This is My body which is broken for you.” (1 Corinthians 11:24).
Then The Seven Golden Candlesticks, for the Holy Spirit giving Revelation to you; “And the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name He will show you all things. Everything that the Father has is Mine. And the Holy spirit will take from Mine and show it unto you.” (John 14:26).
Revelation will be your portion.
Then there is also in The Holy Place, The Alter of Incense, meaning the praises of the saints.
As we enter into The Holy of Holies through The Veil, which is Christ himself. Jesus said: “I am the veil, I am the door of the sheep. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 10:7, 14;6).
In the Book of Revelation chapter 4, we see the seven blazing lamps of fire, just as is mentioned in the Tabernacle Moses made with the instruction given to him by The LORD.
Now because of what Jesus did on The Cross, cleansing us with the blood He shed, and cleansing us with the Word that He Sends, so that we can enter in to the Holy of Holies with our hands washed with pure water and our minds sprinkled from an evil conscience, we can come boldly to the throne to find grace to help us in our time of need.
And, we can receive revelation of the Word of The LORD because now Jesus has given us through the Spirit of The LORD, the Mind of Christ, and the Word that He reveals to us.
“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says The LORD.
Come into the Holy of Holies;
Enter by the Blood of the Lamb;
Come into His Presence with singing;
Worship at the Throne of God.
Lifting holy hands to the King of Kings;
Worship; worship Jesus!”
