The Bible & the Golden Lampstand





Exodus 25:31
“Make a lampstand of pure gold and hammer it out, base and shaft; its flowerlike cups, buds and blossoms shall be of one piece with it.

In the Old Testament, Moses got revelations from God to make a lampstand in the Tabernacle. It’s a lampstand made of a piece of pure gold. The golden lampstand was consisted of seven lamps which were make of sixty-six parts in three shapes namely cups, buds and blossoms. It represents Words of God, the Holy Bible. There are sixty-six books in total in the Old and New Testament. Thirty-nine of which are preserved in the Old Testament. After resurrection of Lord Jesus at the time of New Testament, Lord explained the secrets of the Old Testament Bible to disciples. Then, the twenty-seven books of the New Testament Bible were completed.

Thus, Bible taught us that God’s word is a lamp of our feet.

Psalms 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet; and a light for my path.

However, at the time of New Testament, God’s words not only written on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Corinthians 3:3
You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the -Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Revelation even recorded that the sixty-six books of Bible completed by Lord Jesus. God’s word not only is our golden lampstand, it also guides the church to be a golden lampstand. When God’s words (Golden lampstand) are written on tablets of the church, the church act it out; the church will become the bride, the golden lampstand at the time of Revelation. Thus, the true aim of God’s giving us His Words will be fulfilled.

Revelation:1”19-20
“herefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.
The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.”

On the other hand, there will be two lampstands namely witnesses of sackcloth which will prophesy for one thousands two hundreds and sixty days at the time of Revelation Era.

Revelation 11:1-3
I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count the worshipers there.
But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.
And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”

From these, we get two revelations as follows:

1) Lord Jesus completed sixty-six books of Bible becoming a model for church. He left us the golden lampstand, the Holy Bible so that the church can be a golden lampstand too.  Similarly, the church at end time will leave a full set of messages to the world to help the end time generation becoming lampstands. Though they’ve missed the chance to be a golden lampstand but at least they can be a lampstand.

2) The church can be a golden lampstand because God’s word is written on tablets of church’s heart. Also, the reason two witnesses in sackcloth can be lampstand will be the same. Revelations of God’s word at end-time will be written on tablets of their hearts. They act accordingly and thus become two lampstand at end-time of the Revelation Era.
