The Lamp

    Home Back

 

2 Samuel 22:29: NKJV: For YOU are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord shall enlighten my darkness.
For by You I can run against a troop; by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. 

 

The lamp of mankind’s life is the Word of the entire bible. This light desired to enlighten the darkness for the children of Israel as He led them out of slavery in Egypt to train them in His way.  The perfect way in truth of God instructed the Israelites to construct a lamp for His tabernacle in Exodus 25:31-40. This was called a menorah or lampstand which stood outside the second curtain in the Tabernacle. The Messiah, Christ Jesus warned the church He would remove this lampstand in the book of Revelation.

 

Revelation 2:5: Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place---unless you repent. ** This example of the disobedient church in Ephesus has expanded in many multitudes of churches in this age. The meager few established then and now with the light of truth were far from perfect and the full light of truth rarely flickers with the first works of love (Exodus 20: 2-17, Deuteronomy 5:7-21, Leviticus 23:2-41). Those that truly possess and try to do the first works of love have the first opportunity for life in the soon coming Kingdom of God.

 

Psalm 18:20-22: The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God, for all His judgments were before me, and I did not put away His statutes from me. ** This context sounds like King David was boasting which is distasteful to our Eternal Creator. Yet, when we boast for what He has done to restore our wicked souls to the first works of love sets an example for approval as spoken by the prophet Jeremiah.

 

Jeremiah 9:24: But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving kindness, judgments, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord. ** Nothing but true knowledge of our Maker to go all the way with the will as He has commanded. Each sin of disobedience of his law (Torah) is worship of that evil god, the devil, controlling the freewill minds of mankind since the disobedience of Adam and Eve.

 

1 Corinthians 1:23: But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 

 1 Corinthians 1:19: For it is written (Isaiah 29:14). I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. ** 1 Corinthians 1:13: Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? ** Christ did it! He was baptized with complete immersion with the laying on of hands by the power of the Holy Spirit from heaven. Luke 3:21-22: When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while HE prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him… ** 2 Peter: 1:19: And so we have the prophetic Word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;… ** The proper lay on of hands after immersion as demonstrated by the Messiah, Christ Jesus brings the power of the Holy Spirit into the recipient’s dawning of Messiah, the morning star of light and truth. This is the brightest star like Jesus that will disintegrate the darkness within your mind by bringing the lamp and light of truth with His soon coming.  Few in this world of the lying devil can know or understand the real truth and walk exactly the way of Jesus Christ by keeping all the commandments of Exodus, chapter 20, Deuteronomy, chapter 5 and Leviticus, chapter 23. But the Spirit will help you!

 

Revelation 22:16: I, Jesus, have sent MY angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star. ** David and other family will be a Bright and Morning Star filled with the Holy Spirit of the Most High. ** Revelation 2: 26-29: And he who overcomes and keeps MY works (laws, judgments, statutes, commandments) until the end, to him I will give power over the nations---He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels as I have received from My Father; and I will give him the Morning Star. He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

The family of God born of woman continues to grow with the First Born of the Most High. This family will be brothers, sisters and mothers of the family. ** Mark 3:35: For whoever does the will of God is MY brother and MY sister and mother (Matthew 12:50, also).  This family will be Elohim meaning gods as one. All will be subservient to the Most High first named in Genesis 14:18-20. All will be in one accord as one God as a mirror image of the Most High who is a God of love. ** Revelation 5:6: And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. ** The powerful current god of hate, the devil encompasses and controls the minds of our world of wickedness. This is the adversary of our Creator of love which the world does not know and cannot understand.  Approval to become a bright and Morning Star begins with correct and complete baptism into the loving kindness of peace!
