Thank you to my patrons who make my writings possible. You are each precious soul to my heart.
There are no witnesses who have seen God in His heavenly abode. We do, however, see the darkness of a cold winter settling across the earth. Given our place in the timeline of history, space and time are no longer relevant, because they are blurring between our past and our future, Creation and Eternity. The palpable blackness of this winter is different than any other winter in history because it seems there may be no joy of emerging spring. Having worked for the government I am privy to various operations that are conducted under obscure darkness. So, too, away from our eyesight, in the darkness, God and His legions, plus Satan and his demons, have begun the initial skirmishes of war to the death, prophesied by Jesus. When His disciples asked Him what would be the sign of His coming and the end of the earth, among other things, He said ‘… then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.”
There is only One who can bring illumination to this End Time wicked lightlessness and His Name is Jesus. John the Revelator saw and wrote this description:
His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:12-16
Because the sealed scrolls of Daniel are now being revealed, we need to time travel back to the days of Daniel to better understand them. Daniel saw Jesus:
I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude. Daniel 10:5,6
The lampstands/candlesticks spoken of in the beginning of the Book of Revelation are a template of Jesus as the Light of the World. He is the One Who will pierce the veil of darkness when all seems lost.
Behold the Mystery of the Lampstand!
Chanukkiah (9 lamps), similar to Menorah (7 lamps)
The candlestick prefigures Jesus and His church and who can measure the bounds of such? Why, their influence is infinite! Each day fresh members will be added to His body, until there are un-numbered multitudes, even “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Revelation 5:11
This beautiful lampstand vessel is unmeasured with a vague description. Such an omission turns our thoughts toward the unearthly judgment and, paradoxically, the standing of the church.
We really need to get over our naïveté when we read our Bible. It is a book of contrasts between Jesus --with His forces of creation-- and the tangible darkness, the abode of Satanic wickedness. It is a book of catastrophe and the distinctly unique opportunity for redemption.
Jesus declared that He is the Light of the world. The very definition of a lampstand is "light" or "a light-giving thing," hence, "lamp.” The Greek word, luchnia, is used interchangeably in various versions as a “candle.”
Torches have been used since antiquity, with clay lamps being used from about 2000 B.C. onward.
Before we can proceed into cataclysm let us compare the physical and supernatural nature of light.
When the Tabernacle in the Wilderness was crafted, we can observe that the light was necessary in the Holy Place because there were no windows or apertures through which natural light could come. With the coverings over the boards and the hangings on the door, the sanctuary was in total darkness. So, too, the vast expanse of space, if you will, is a pitch-black organism of electric current.
The Tabernacle of old, a type and shadow of the indwelling of Holy Spirit in the Body of Christ, had three forms of illumination:
The Outer Court was lighted naturally by the sun and represents the wisdom of the world. 1 Corinthians 1:20. This natural light of man’s reasoning can never illuminate the darkness of the world. In fact, this light receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God. I Corinthians 2:1).
The Holy Place was lighted artificially, by the Golden Candlestick or Menorah, and such light was confined to the Holy Place, being seen only by those within. This is the light which the outside world cannot behold or realize, simply because they are outside of spiritual understanding. The light of the Holy Place is the spiritual illumination of the Holy Spirit within every true believer in Jesus Christ.
The Holiest of All was lighted supernaturally by the Shekinah glory or God’s Presence, and such a light is so brilliant and penetrating it could be witnessed by only one man, the High Priest, on one day a year. It is mind-blowing to consider that there is a light surpassing even the light of Revelation that we possess today and this is the Shekinah glory of God’s Holy Presence in which we shall eternally dwell. The brightness of this wonderful light must be overpowering, for the seraphim, we are told in Isaiah 6:2, cover their faces.
This should bring to our mind thoughts from Revelation 22:5:
- And there shall be no need of light there.
- There will be no darkness and need of illumination as the glory of God will illuminate.
- There will be no Menorah or Candlestick, artificial light, as in the Holy Place.
- There will be no need for the sun for there will be no Outer Court needed.
- The Shekinah glory of His Presence will light the Holiest of All for all eternity.
The gold on the menorah represents the divine glory of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Strict instructions were laid out that no part of its construction could include any alloy or mixture, neither any combination of layered materials, as we see with other articles for the Tabernacle.
The menorah was made of pure gold and thereby typifies that which is entirely divine in its origin.
This lampstand could not be made of sections, assembled, or taken apart. It could not be made in separate pieces and then soldered together by metalworkers. It must have been a single piece. Before the artisans began their work, this gold was hiding somewhere in the bowels of the earth as one solid piece. Nothing was added to it to form its outward beauty. That brings us to the very deep New Testament truth referring to Jesus and His church: We were all of one piece to begin with. In the divine purpose, the Lamb was slain, and we were chosen in Him before the foundations of the earth. Ephesians 1:4 Let us bow before Jesus, such a mystery and yet manifestation of divine grace. And let us remember that we are “many members yet one body.” I Corinthians 12:12
The Menorah or lampstand is made from beaten gold. Leviticus 24:4 According to the Targum Onkelos, beaten out is used as an expression of drawing out, because the craftsman draws the parts of the Menorah out of a solid block of gold.
This implies a massive piece of gold was taken and by the hard, constant blows of a hammer flattened out and then worked into its respective beauty and shape. The beating is suggestive of Jesus’ suffering through crucifixion. May we never forget that Jesus and we, His church, are a beaten work. Think of the beating, the scoffing, the shame of Jesus which that piece of pure gold endured. But we are where we are in grace today because of His agony, because the pure gold of Jesus Christ was beaten.
Legends say that the details for the crafting of the Menorah were so complex, even when Moses received the instructions, that he was still perplexed as to how to make it. So God said to Moses, “Throw the kikar (weight of measure) of gold into the fire, and it will make itself.” The Menorah emerged from the fire fully formed. Therefore, the verse does not state, “You shall make.” This sounds unimaginable, but consider that Aaron said, “They gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!" Exodus 32:34
The base. Literally the thigh, was made into a box shape with three legs extending downward. We must think of the statue in Daniel where the thigh was made of BRONZE. The divine character of Jesus can sustain the fire of God—His holiness and judgment. Moses built a BRONZE serpent to help them; yet it wasn’t so much the serpent as it was their repentance to God that healed them. In the dream about the Statue of Nebuchadnezzar, bronze signified a kingdom weaker than those of “gold” and “silver”. Ezekiel described the Glory of God as having legs of burnished BRONZE. In Revelation Jesus is described as having feet of burnished BRONZE, generally before He goes forth to judge the nations.
The cataclysmic time we are in begins with the very foundations or pillars of Creation. Psalm 11 says, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? The LORD is in His holy temple; the LORD is on His heavenly throne. His eyes are watching closely; they examine the sons of men.”
The central shaft, thigh, which comes out of the base and from which its six branches come, represents the blessed inseparable union that exists between Jesus and His people. As the true figure of pre-eminence, Jesus has been anointed above His fellows. Hebrews 1:9 It is from the shaft or loins from whence His children of the Holy Spirit children come forth. Satan covets this seat of authority and so the battle is on.
The branch…There is a single branch that rises from the base or foundation. This middle branch which ascends from the middle of the base stands upright and vertically. He is the righteous Branch (singular). We, His people, are the branches (plural). Isaiah 4:2
In catastrophic terms, we will be as electrical branches and arcs of raw power influencing
those around us. The very elements themselves are God’s alone.
The goblets or bowls are like decorative cups which are tall, narrow, and flared. They adorn and extend from each branch. Numbers 22 These goblets hold the oil and wick for the light. Make the mouths of the six lamps at the ends of the branches that emerge from the sides turned toward the central shaft so that when you kindle the lamps, they will cast light in the direction of the its face, that is, light turned in the direction of the central shaft which is the body of the menorah. Exodus 25 re: the Mishkan (Tabernacle).
Jesus lights our light and takes us from darkness to light; we face Him continually, opening our mouths to sing praises to Him. We must ponder the parable of the ten wise and foolish virgins with their lamps for it literally screams judgmental cataclysm. And also remember the bowls of judgment poured out upon the earth, a time of woe.
The knobs are in the shape of an apple. They were spherical, protruding around the middle branch. Numbers 11 In the cataclysmic sense, the knobs seem to be the luminaries--sun, moon, planets and stars, the ornaments in the sky with their role to play as signs, wonders, or even weapons of judgment in the Master’s hand.
The flowers consisted of petals, the most delicate elements of the Menorah. Numbers 9. The flower of the End Time catastrophe will be the Birkland current. (This refers to the electric currents in a planet’s ionosphere that follow magnetic field lines and sometimes are used to describe any field-aligned electric current in a space plasma, like supercharged lightening). These mega-lightnings, as one might imagine them, carve the most intricate and impressive designs into earth’s bedrock, penetrating down indelibly etching into our cellular memory this unique moment in history. Our cells remember these catastrophic events.
The oil represents the Holy Spirit in all its fullness, shining forth in Christ Jesus. This pure olive oil, which makes the light possible, was made from beaten olives.
When we take all things together, we see the Menorah as a fitting symbol of the Church of Jesus Christ, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, Who causes her to shine and bear bright testimony for her Lord in a dark world of sin. As the birth-pangs of catastrophe intensify, we will all be beaten to some degree; may we remain a faithful witness to Jesus.
The fire is symbolic of God’s holiness. In judgment, fire reigns upon that which His holiness utterly condemns. Jesus, the manifestation of God in the flesh, was the One Whom He approved. Jesus, whose eyes are the flame of fire, tries, and searches, and cleanses the hearts of men. There is no doubt that during this cataclysmic time, we will be forged in the refiner’s fire to become the purified vessel for our Savior’s use able to sing joyful praises unto His Name.
Then there is the dark spiritual light, "The lamp of the wicked shall be put out," Job 21:17; Proverbs 13:9; and perhaps Job 18:6. This dark light will be extinguished in the physical realm and placed into the Lake of Fire. Revelation 20:14
I contemplate that this lake has no light, and that it might be akin to our perception of a Black Hole.
The following refers to an earthly blacksmith, but it illustrates God in His final work of judgment:
The smith also sitting by the anvil, and considering the iron work, the vapor of the fire wasteth his flesh, and he fighteth with the heat of the furnace: the noise of the hammer and the anvil is ever in his ears, and his eyes look still upon the pattern of the thing that he maketh; he setteth his mind to finish his work, and watcheth to polish it perfectly. Apocrypha Sirach 38:28
The Lampstand at Midnight
Dual purpose words have been around probably since God gave man language. Encoded within these descriptions of Jesus are words that portent cataclysm.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Revelation 19:12
Eyes were as a flame of fire: The simple or plain language speaks for itself but in catastrophic terms the physics of it is awe-inspiring. His blazing eyes could be described as ionized cylindrical plasma columns known as the Bennett Pinch, or a vortex-like current bundle Electron particle beams--called a dicotron instability, possibly resulting in a super nova from our sun. His eyes, the windows of His essence, can send radioactive gaseous, liquid, or solid plasma some with intricate filamentary and cellular life like structure streaming within our solar system or to distant galaxies. That look, and I know you all know what that “look” can be like, having experienced a subdued form of it, has the power to explode our planet into a neutron star. This should cause you to pause and utter, “Who is like unto our God?” The cataclysmic tempest continues as solar plasma filament ropes undulate, temperamental coronal mass ejections couple with earth… hurling invisible shockwaves, bringing cosmic rays so powerful that they can penetrate straight through the earth’s mantle, right to its core. This should pique our curiosity on what part, or all, of the electromagnetic spectrum were these flames?
Faith lesson: When my eyes look upon Jesus and our eyes lock, do I see judgment or by His blood, do I see love? If I am convicted of sin, let me quickly repent.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Robe dipped in blood: Between August 27th and September 6, 1859 the most famous solar storm in recorded history occurred, the Carrington Event. The spectacular storm was seen around the globe and wreaked havoc on the technology of the day. It inspired poems and artistic renderings which described the sky as blood or deep crimson red and so brilliant that one “could read a newspaper by” it. The robe of the sky glittered with streamers. And, from Ursa Major to the zodiac in the east, streams or spiral columns rose from the horizon. There was a rosette tint with flashes of lightning along the whole of the aurora. Luminous arches were seen in England with an intense red glare. Since red auroras were considered a sign of ill omen during medieval times, pilgrimages were organized to avert the wrath of Heaven. The Chinese described it as: “A red cloud spreading over the sky, and among the red, bands of white vapor like glossed silk penetrating it.” Physics of the Plasma Universe, Anthony L. Peratt
Europeans described it as: “Swords, spears, white vapor, like glossed silk, penetrating, candles in the sky, a red sky patterned with white stripes stretching from horizon to horizon.” In North America it was described as a vivid red light on the landscape and ‘a thousand fantastic figures, as if painted with fire on a black background.’
These ill omens have been written about since ancient times, and these red aurora have returned in November 2019, although not yet to their full blood-dipped glory. I reported on these phenomena when it appeared on spaceweather.com. There are other portents coming our way soon, such as electromagnetic sunspots that hurl a wrathful fury earthwards, and blood red moons, typically a full moon on biblical feast days.
Faith lesson: I was purchased by the blood of Jesus, does my life reflect this? What action can I do today to come into better alignment with His Will?And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Revelation 19:15
Mouth as a sharp sword: Plasma discharges are sudden kinetic releases of electric or magnetic stored energy. God stores these weapons of warfare within His heavens. Discharges are local phenomena accompanied by violent processes such as rapid heating, ionization, the creation of pinched and filamentary conduction channels, particle acceleration, and the generation of prodigious amounts of electromagnetic radiation. Man creates particle beams, Xrays, and microwaves but God prefers lightning as a discharge mechanism and auroral discharge caused by a bombardment of atoms in the upper atmosphere typically at high latitudes. Throughout the solar system God uses current plasma discharges and solar flares, exciting our atmosphere and disrupting our technological civilization.
Are we witnessing the physical physics manifestation of sharp prophecy, such as Daniel’s 1260 days where the velocity and position integration [possibly of time] is leap-frogging over each other, being displaced by half a time step, or where velocity [acceleration of time] exists at the half times?
As His Word and Will go forth, does God Whistle? A whistler is an anisotropic dispersive plasma that exhibits in whistler mode. It manifests by electromagnetic disturbances initiated by lightning discharges in the upper atmosphere. These waves cannot be heard directly but by man putting sensors in space the whistler is converted into audible soundwaves. They propagate from one hemisphere to another in the ionosphere and follow the earth’s dipole magnetic field lines.
Faith lesson: What do I allow to come out of my mouth? The power of life and death is in the tongue. What steps can I take today to better reign in this dangerous member?
On His head were many diadems: We envision the diadems on the head of Jesus as a crown for an earthly king, but what if this diadem was electromagentic? The physical atmosphere, around about the earth as a crown, is a magnetosphere-ionospheric electrical circuit. It is possible that the crowns of the Lord are geomagnetic fields with coronas and visible dancing polar auroral diadems are upon His head as He floods the atmosphere with energetic particles, showing the power of His might. Living in the Rockies we have a phenomenon where it is so cold that any moisture in the air condenses into diamond-like ice crystals encrusted into a crown. Welcome to Snowball Earth.
Faith lesson: Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Do my actions reflect that I honor His Name and position?
His robe: I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple [of His heavens], Isaiah 6. This robe could be a garment of solar wind ‘fabric,’ forming all-encompassing electrified current sheets to make the heavenly abode; then, as the train moved about it could brush earth with contractions of energetic solar particle events. This electrified supernatural layered ‘fabric’, a pinched cosmic plasma filament conductor of His glory in us, intrinsically releases energy and secondary particles of accelerated heat and radiation.
Faith lesson: Do you let Jesus encompass you round about? What is keeping you from His warm embrace?
His armies: Envision collisions between super particle-plasma particles swarming the earth with geomagnetic storms. These strong, fast, and hot solar winds from coronal holes create devastating shockwaves which are its signature. On a more understandable level of the legendary account, consider Velikovsky’s understanding of the Israelites’ Red Sea crossing with the Egyptians in hot pursuit. Did the Israelites witness a night of terror and upheaval on that day?
From his research he tells of the amazing similarity between the dramatic crossing of the Red Sea and the Greek myth of a battle between Zeus and the dragon Typhon. In his own words, “In parallel circumstances Typhon (Typheus) lies at the bottom of the sea where the spellbound Israelites saw the upheaval of nature: darkness, hurricane, mountains of water, fire and smoke, recorded in the Greek legend as circumstance in which the battle of Zeus with the dragon Typhon was fought in the same way that pharaoh and his host now lie under the sea.” Velikovsky identifies Rahab-Typhon taking the form of a planet, comet, or asteroid. But if Typhon lies at the bottom of the sea, is he not pharaoh? This would mean that in the legend of Typhon two elements were welded together [possibly by a Birkland current]: the pharaoh who perished in the catastrophe and outrageous rebel Zeus, the lord of the sky. There is much more to the legend going way back into ancient history. (I do not mean to imply that Greek legends are on par with the God-breathed holy Bible, but most of the legends are, indeed, memories of supernatural events of which the Bible clearly speaks. See Worlds in Collision, by Immanuel Velikovsky.)
Faith lesson: Lord Jesus, this war seems to be too large, please give me the faith and courage of King David when he went against Goliath. Treading the winepress: The cycles, circulations, and modulations that Solar Forcing has upon our climate. Consider the jet streams, atmospheric pressure, Pacific and Atlantic decadal and multidecadal, quasi-Biennial oscillations, and thermal and electromagnetic coupling.
Faith lesson: Jesus alone will tread the End Day winepress, but we will each be crushed in some ways. What steps can I take today to esteem the Name of Jesus during my days of crushing?
Solar Minima or Grand Solar Minimum: These create effects so terrifying that…(I’m making this up but we need to know what they are) you will drop prostrate before the living God, as we are ushered into heaven or hell. Consider this: The Snohomish tribe [in the area where I used to live] tells a story about the origin of the exclamation, “Yahu.” A long time ago, when all the animals were still human beings [interesting] the sky was very low. It was so low that the people could not stand erect. They called a meeting together and discussed how they could raise the sky. But no one was strong enough to lift the sky. Finally, it occurred to them that they might be able to lift it if everyone worked together. But how would it be possible for all the people to exert their efforts at exactly at the same moment? Different people were in different parts of the world. What signal could be given to all the people at precisely the same time? The word ‘Yahu!’ was invented for this purpose. It was decided that all the people should shout ‘Yahu!’ together and exert their whole strength in lifting the sky. The people equipped themselves with poles, braced themselves against the sky, and then all shouted ‘Yahu!’ in unison. Under their combined efforts, the sky rose a little! Again, the people shouted ‘Yahu!’ and lifted the heavy weight. They repeated this until the sky was sufficiently high and today ‘Yahu! Is still employed by people when lifting something heavy.
These are the previous extinction events.
According to all cultures and religions we are in the last event or cycle.
A simple primitive story? It was during an earlier extinction period where some species go extinct and new mutations are born, driven by the Grand Solar Minimum and magnetosphere loss. Clouds of dust and gasses enveloped the earth for a long time. It seemed that the sky had descended low. The earth groaned repeatedly because of the twisting and dislocation it had experienced. Only slowly and gradually did the clouds lift themselves from the ground.
Faith lesson: How often do I lie prostate before the Lord thanking Him for His salvation?
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. We have just begun the time of judgment and our study of what that means to each of us. What is mentioned above barely scratches the surface of what we face. The tent stakes of our understanding will be shaken violently as we learn how the elements and forces that shaped our world are now supernatural weapons. As we dig deeper into what this means, physically and supernaturally, we will examine the ancients’ documentation of the scenes they saw and which we will witness … but with exponential veracity. God will prevail and this last cycle will end with the elements, heaven and earth burning up. 2 Peter 3:10
I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to highlight, that as terrifying and unsettling as this enveloping dark fog of wickedness encompassing us roundabout will be, throughout Holy Scripture, God has clothed and obscured Himself from man (surprisingly) in darkness. We can remember in those times that in the Chanukiah-lampstand (like a Menorah) the Shamish or servant candle represents Jesus Christ, Who lights the other lamps. He does not lose His light or intensity but ignites the silent wicks of the other lamps (representing you and me) into brilliant illumination. There is a striking contrast between the Light of God and the blackness of wickedness.
The Holy Spirit has kindled your lamp, no matter how tangible the darkness will become. Although we shall witness with our own eyes wickedness defying all Laws of Nature, Laws of Forces, and Laws of Physics, bring to your mind that they are mere actors in the palm of the Hand of our loving God as He concludes the final drama of Cycles, Time, Redemption, and, praise Him, for the elimination of Evil. Stand firm in the promise of Psalm 91, that you will be safe in the refuge of the Most-High, when you are found under the wings of Jesus Christ. During these times do not hide your light under a bushel barrel or cellar, but let it shine. Matthew 5:15 and Luke 11:33
This Christmas and New Year season, be blessed, and truly give thanks to Jesus, The Light of the World.
