Aaron Lighting Candles
The whole ACT that ancient Israel participated in and the priesthood of Levi was a "parabolic gospel". Now learn what the act of lighting the candles referenced in the true Spirit "reality".
A. A MAN: KJV Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
B. A CHURCH: Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches
C. Jesus and the Holy Spirit (two "kristos") Zechariah 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
D. KJV Psalm 119:105 Nun. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
The two anointed Comforters, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, (Psalm 23:4) do fill each type of candle with their Words (oil or O-WILL). The O is defined in 2 Esdras 5:42. It means "judgment". O-WILL is "the Judge's will" or simply put, God's will.
Deuteronomy 4:24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
As you can see Aaron's task of lighting the candles was necessary for his role. We tell you in the GOOD NEWS that many things under the OLD Covenant are "living parables" which point to Higher spiritual understanding, but it is "cloaked". You might call this a blue or purple "word-cloth" covering holy things concerning the true heavenly priesthood. The priesthood of Levi was only a "pattern" of the heavenly priesthood. Let us turn the "keys" and discover what God is teaching us.
Men and churches are "candles" or lamps. In the parable of the "ten virgins" some lamps went out. "Oil" is the WORD of God, period! Men need "extra oil". God has some "oil men" down here now, who work with the "two golden vessels" above. "Fire" is the WORD of God as well as the symbol for the "Holy Spirit".
Aaron's act showed how Heaven works to enlighten individual men and churches. Aaron repeated this act over and over again. Today it is given to "few" of us, who eat at God's table. Today it is given to YOU and as many as you share it with. Be like Aaron! Do it over and over again! Blessed are your eyes for you see these things and your ears, which hear these things. Let us thank God for the efforts of all men employed by Him, who work to increase the understanding of individual men and the churches. We are ALL FAMILY! It takes a "team" effort to thwart the Dragon, Revelation 13:4-7!
