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, adn 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.
