The God-assigned Glory and the Pure Light of the Menorah -Part I of II-

The following message is the first part of a teaching that consists of two parts and we recommend to read the message chronologically.
God’s concern is to position those saints who are ready to establish the revelatory truth of His Word for this time and the time to come among His people in the places He has assigned and to establish them in the order of His Word, much as Isaiah 22:23 reveals.
Isaiah 22:23:
23 I will drive him (Note: Eliakim – ‘God raises’) like a peg (Note: nail) into a firm place; he will become a seat of honor for the house of his father.
The Firmly Hammered Nail and the Stewardship and Fatherhood of God
This nail represents chosen saints who move forward in the realm of leadership in the faithful stewardship and fatherhood of God as well as in the revelatory truth of the Word of God. On this basis, they serve those who abide in the structure of the bride of Christ and His governmental presence (Note: capital city Jerusalem; cf. Revelation 21:2.9-10) as devoted worshipers (Note: house of Judah – ‘worship, praise’).
This results in a spiritual legitimate authority in Christ Jesus to receive an intensification in the God-assigned anointing, which is accompanied by authority of access and is equivalent to a so-called ‘master key’ of a building.
This authorization of access derives from the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the knowledge that you are loved by God as well as you are meant to be in a pure relationship in truth with Him. From this follows that we get authorized to open the doors of the realms in the Spirit to which we are sent on God’s behalf (cf. Isaiah 22:20-22).
Isaiah 22:20-22:
20 “In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim (Note: Eliakim – ‘God raises’) son of Hilkiah (Note: Hilkijah – ‘portion of YHVH’).
21 I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sash around him and hand your authority over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah.
22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.
By the uncompromised walk of believers in the revelatory truth of God’s Word as well as in obedience to His instruction, they belong to God’s ownership arsenal (cf. Exodus 19:5).
Exodus 19:5:
5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, …
We can assume that this nail was hammered into a fortified wall and is destined to carry a God-assigned multitude of believers in His assigned responsibility in the standard of the truth of His Word in this era and the era to come.
The Spiritual Dimension of Eliakim and the Pure Shining Light of the Menorah
It is the mission of saints sojourning in the dimension of ‘Eliakim’ to initiate the God-ordained awakening in His people, which is equivalent to the raising of the twelve-year-old daughter of
Jairus (Note: means ‘He enlightens’), the ruler of the synagogue by Jesus Christ.
This is due to the raising of the daughter, when Jesus gave the command ‘Talita kum! - Little girl, get up!’ which was used towards her, in which the Hebrew word ‘qûm’ is a word component at the end of the name of ‘Eliakim’. This raising up was about God’s plan to let the truth of God’s word shine in a stronger intensity of revelation.
The task of the ruler of the synagogue is, among other things, to assist in preaching the Word of God (Note: Torah) to the respective community of saints. Furthermore, they are responsible for the observance of the spiritual order (cf. 1 Corinthians 14:33a) and the distribution of the respective tasks in the congregation, as well as for the maintenance of the congregational building (Note: synagogue).
Based on this in connection with the raising of Jairus’ daughter, we can see that it was in God’s plan to bring the truth of His Word, the knowledge of His established spiritual order, and the understanding of righteous administration in relation to the fellowship of saints into a greater dimension of the power of His revelatory light with the goal of shining out from this realm (cf. Psalm 36:9 i.c.w. James 1:17).
Psalm 36:9:
9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
James 1:17:
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
The intensification of the revelatory light is revealed by the command and intervention of Jesus, who expelled from the place all those present in the house who were in disrespect because of unbelief. Jesus allowed only Jairus, Jairus’ wife and His three disciples Peter, James, and John to enter the house, while Jairus’ daughter lay dead (Note: spiritually asleep) in bed (cf. Mark 5:35-40).
Mark 5:35-40:
35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”
36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.
38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.
39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.”
40 But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was.
Accordingly, including Jesus, there were seven people in Jairus’ house, which is a reference to the ‘dimension of the Menorah’, namely, the seven-fold Spirit of God (cf. Isaiah 11:2).
Isaiah 11:2:
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him – the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord – …
From the alignment with Jesus and the persons in the house of Jairus, it is evident that the Menorah was to shine in a new way in the full capacity and purity in the fiery essence of God to the people to taste and see the face of God (cf. Hebrews 12:29 i.c.w. Psalm 34:8).
Hebrews 12:29:
29 for our “God is a consuming fire cf. Deuteronomy 4:24).”
Psalm 34:8:
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
It was the fiery warm light of the Menorah that shone forward from south to north and with whose cone of light the twelve shew breads (Note: also called ‘bread of His presence’) were irradiated (cf. Exodus 26:35 i.c.w. Numbers 8:2-3).
Exodus 26:35:
35 Place the table outside the curtain on the north side of the tabernacle and put the lampstand opposite it on the south side.
Numbers 8:2-3:
2 “Speak to Aaron and say to him, ‘When you set up the lamps, see that all seven light up the area in front of the lampstand.’ ”
3 Aaron did so; he set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand, just as the Lord commanded Moses.
This means in the context of the raising of the twelve-year-old daughter of Jairus that the ‘living Menorah’ of the church – ekklēsia in the form of Jesus as the revelatory truth of the word of God, His three disciples as the apostolic mission of God, Jairus together with his wife as the covenant relationship in first love (Note: agąpē) and his ‘sleeping’ daughter as the church – ekklēsia in the rest of God, was ignited. This ignition reveals the call to go ahead as ‘Ekklēsia’ in a new way on behalf of Christ with the burning power of the new day in revelatory truth and in the structure of the new wineskin (cf. Isaiah 26:19).
Isaiah 26:19:
19 But your dead will live, Lord; their bodies will rise – let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy – your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.
It was the duty of Aaron the high priest and his sons to clean the lamps of the Menorah in the morning, so that it would shine in its sevenfold light in purity with the beginning of the new day, since in the biblical context the day begins with evening (cf. Exodus 27:21 i.c.w. Genesis 1:2-5).
Exodus 27:21:
21 In the tent of meeting, outside the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning before the Lord from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for the generations to come.
Genesis 1:2-5:
2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning – the first day.
The Instruction of Christ and His Seizure
Jesus’ instruction to the daughter of Jairus was related to His seizure of her hand, which involves the transfer of God’s strength and His plans for the saints who are serving in the office of the fivefold ministry in the church and are destined to equip the ‘Ekklēsia’ with the nourishment of the Word of God and its mysteries for this time (cf. Mark 5:41-43 i.c.w.. Matthew 4:4; Ephesians 4:11-13).
Mark 5:41-43:
41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”).
42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.
43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
Matthew 4:4:
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God (cf. Deuteronomy 8:3).’”
Ephesians 4:11-13:
11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
In order for the ‘great light’ of the Menorah to effectively shine with the new day of the LORD, it is necessary that we remove the voices and presence of unbelief from the foreordained realm of God’s manifested plans. As it is revealed to us by the incident at the house of Jairus, the ruler of the synagogue, where Jesus, as mentioned earlier, entered Jairus’ house with His three chosen disciples to remove unbelief from the house in the form of mourning and mockery.
This action is tantamount to the cleansing of the lamps of the Menorah by the high priest, so that it may once again shine unclouded in its fullness and purity. => Jairus’ daughter is to be seen here as a symbol of the new wineskin in the apostolic order (cf. Mark 5:22-24.35-37).
Mark 5:22-24.35-37:
22 Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet.
23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.”
24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. …
35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”
36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
