AGE OF TRUTH
This holiday is a very special one. In the 4th day of Man's Work Week, we know that Jesus Christ was born. He was Emmanuel - God with us. 50 days from his cruxifixction we discover that the Holy Spirit, who descended upon Jesus like a dove, also descended upon the disciples empowering them to take the message of salvation to the world.
It only makes sense that God's 4th item within his house is a Golden Lamp Stand that lights the entire room with its 7 lamps fueled by it's 7 bowls of oil. Light and oil are both used to represent the Holy Spirit in scripture and here is where we discover the connection between Pentecost, God's 4th Holiday and the Golden Lamp Stand. Remember that Pentecost began when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples as flaming tongues. Wow!
AGE OF TRUTH
The Age of Truth is a very special age in the week of seven ages since it is the age in which Jesus comes into the darkness. John says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him" John 1:1-4. This 4th age correlates to the 4th day of creation week when God created the Sun, Moon and Stars for signs, for seasons and to govern the day and the night (Genesis 1:14-19).
In the wheel above, you'll notice in the day portion a figure that represents the third article within the Tabernacled called the Golden Lampstand. This lampstand provided the light within the holy place of the Tabernacle. This correlates to the dove figure in the night portion of the wheel. This figure represents the Feast of Pentecost. This is the fourth feast of seven that God told his people to observe and commemorates the relationship between God and the nation of Israel when God made a covenant with them....
