Just another lamp

A candle is a candle and a lamp stand is a lamp stand, right? You would think so until you look at the Menorah, which is the lamp stand found in the Holy place. This simple piece of temple equipment or furnishing is filled with so much symbolism, you simply cannot squeeze it all onto one page let alone a quickie blog.

I will however attempt to illuminate you (excuse the pun) with some of the meanings of the Menorah. The 6 outer branches of the Menorah are believed to represent man and the 7th inner branch the eternal flame of God. The almond blossoms speak of first fruits in spring and that we are the head and not the tale. Almond blossoms also speak of the divine election of the individual saint for ministry.

The menorah held enough oil to light the Holy Place from sundown to sunrise. Only the center candlestick was kept burning 24 hours a day. We can infer that the menorah is representative of the inner life of the believer, which is to be constantly illuminated by the Spirit of Christ.

When we are lit with the eternal flame of God during worship, our heart will burn with love for Him forever. As Christians we can know that we are divinely chosen by God for a specific purpose. When you come to God in worship, know that you are unique and that in God's presence you will find the light of truth you need to live every day to the full for God.
