Secrets of the Menorah
Secrets of the Menorah
The Ark of the Covenant, Table of Showbread, and Altar of Incense were all fashioned of wood, and covered with gold. This mixture portrayed “divinity covering humanity,” which is a picture of redemption.
The Menorah, however, consisted only of purest gold, as a picture of the Redeemer Himself. The Menorah was fabricated from heavenly material (Revelation 21:18, 21). Gold was the measure of godly character (Zechariah 13:9), and worldly riches (Genesis 13:2). It was the standard of powerful kingdoms (Daniel 3:1). It sanctified the world’s most sacred rooms (1 Kings 6:22). No other substance on earth captivated men more. They sacrificed their health to mine it, and waged wars to keep it. Made entirely of gold, the Menorah was a lustrous and matchless Temple furnishing.
The Ark of the Covenant, Table of Showbread, and Altar of Incense were practical. The Ark of the Covenant, for instance, was a chest which held objects. The Table of Showbread was an actual table. The Altar of Incense was an operational altar. Each of these Temple vessels was designed to fulfill a role, and each resembled its purpose.
But, the Menorah was more spiritual than functional, with sacred design rather than practical design. This book explores the Menorah’s deeper implications and connections. Valerie shares little known secrets about its radiance, and the secret bond between the Menorah and the Divine Presence. The reader will discover in this book the astonishing power of the Temple’s golden lampstand.
Anyone even casually acquainted with the Bible knows that the physical nation of Israel, its Tabernacle, and its Temple is critical to the Almighty. For this reason, He provided exquisite instructions to His servant Moses regarding the Menorah. Valerie expresses a fascination with the Menorah in a book entitled, “Secrets of the Menorah.”
Her research unveils profound mysteries about the Menorah, the Bible’s most comprehensive symbol. This image of kingdom order and Temple worship creates a mysterious bond between its light and the sevenfold nature of the Almighty’s Divine Presence. The radiant light of the Menorah also points to wisdom, knowledge, righteousness, the word of the Almighty, and the Tree of Life.
Yeshua is connected to the Menorah as the central branch holding all things together. He stands at the center, just as He is the central figure in history, surrounded by the six Menorah branches and the six millennia in the ages of man.
Where is the Menorah today? Valerie examines this and many other questions associated with the lampstand, providing provocative answers.
