Alfa and Omega.

Message from the Holy of Holies!

I hope this will be a blessing to you as it has been to me.

For those who are familiar with the Tabernacle of Moses will know that in the Tabernacle where some items, the lamp stand, the table of shewbread and incense. Today I want to concentrate on the lamp stand and show you how wonderful God represented Jesus in the Lamp stand.  Yes Jesus is the light of the world and the Lamp stand is all about our Lord Jesus.

God wants you to know that everything you do must bring glory to the center  shaft – the Lord Jesus Christ.  Your marriage is to bring glory to the Jesus, marriage is not just to satisfy each other’s needs because then it becomes a very small world and you will get frustrated with each other, you need a higher purpose. Put your career on Christ, focus on Jesus, you won’t wake up with a empty feeling.

Please note that the 6 branches of the lamp stand all bring light to the center shaft, the one on the right points to the center and the ounces on the left points to the center. The three on the right and left speaks of us.

Every church every ministry every pastor must bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.

The “golden lamp stand” is also called “menorah”. A menorah has seven shafts, and the shafts all face the central shaft. The central shaft represents the Lord Jesus Christ. The menorah represents the church, and Jesus is at the center.

A menorah is beaten from one solid piece of gold. The process of making a menorah represents the Lord Jesus being beaten and stricken while on earth, for us.

 

Whatever gifts and blessings that God has given us is for us to bring light to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Note in Genesis 1:1 The very first verse in the bible is in the Hebrew bible,  in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  In Hebrew this is exactly 7 words, and there are exactly 28 letters/ 7 x 4, there are other 7’s found in this one verse that opens up the entire bible. But notice that the middle one is untranslated   The center branch has no translation! As you can see in the picture above. The 2 letter in Hebrew is Alef and Tav (In English it is A and Z) 

Why is this untranslated? God created the entire earth with the Hebrew words form A to Z,  but who is Alef (A) and Tav (Z)?  

The Hebrew word AZ don’t have a translation, as you can see when God created the heavens and the earth Jesus was there.  In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and God was the Word.  

Jesus in the book of Revelations introduced Himself to John “Don’t be afraid, I am the first and the last, I am Alfa and Omega. (Greek)

Always make the Lord Jesus the center of your life.

Lamp stand in Revelation 1:12-13 (AMP) His is John speaking:

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And after turning I saw seven golden lamp stands; 13 and in the midst of the lamp stands I saw someone [a]like the Son of Man, dressed in a robe reaching to His feet, and with a golden sash wrapped around His chest.

The golden lamp stand was the only source of light in the holy place. Its primary purpose was to give light in front of it. It was to shine on the table of shewbread and never to be put out. It was never to stop shining.

 This was a constant reminder that God was with His people. The Bible says that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. When the apostle John said, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it,” he was referring to Jesus coming into the world.

Jesus made the world and created life and came to bring Gods life to fallen man but since man is in darkness apart from Jesus they could not comprehend the light that comes with the life of God. The golden lamp stand illuminated the shewbread and so God illuminates His people.

The Spirit of God illuminates the dark mind of man to the knowledge of God and to spiritual life. John went on to say, “That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Man is blind apart from Jesus. Man cannot know God apart from Jesus. Even if God were to come Himself to His very home, man is incapable of perceiving any spiritual light because the darkness has made him blind. The golden lamp stand speaks of Jesus as the light of the world.
