And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;(v.6)”
The Salvation Plan of God explains Core Will and it covers all that was willed by God and fulfilled by his Son. Now when John speaks of ‘Kings and Priests’ firstly we are to understand that we were chosen before the worlds began. It has both sense symbolically as well as from the authority transmitted to us by principle of Association. As a symbol we shall examine the role of Melchisedec who met Abraham after he returned from a war. He stands as an indication of God’s relationship with man. The Spirit establishes his credentials of the King of Salem. He was also the priest of the most high God.
The Spirit presents him so early on in the narrative as a priest representing the possessor of heaven and earth (Ge.14:18-19). Through this incident the Spirit…

The Book of Revelation is the testimony of Jesus Christ as shown to Apostle John in a series of visions. It is a audio-visual transcript given by his angel. The Spirit has supplied an additional clue: ‘from the seven spirits which are before the throne’. The number of seven (here signified by its perfection) already covers the past present and also the future. Time is God’s Time so when John writes ‘for the time is at hand’ let there be no mistake: the events are in flux where the heavenly realities intercut with events on the earth. It does not however mean there is any going back but what is happening and where these events are leading to which is what we need focus upon. In the previous post I had mentioned of the Four horsemen, which signified war, famine plague and death and are transcribed into visions of what…

The Seven Candlesticks
While studying the apocalyptic writings the symbolism of lamps, stars to mention a few, must be understood for what it is. God is qualified as the Father of lights (Jas.1:17) and it would make the Son as ‘True Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world (Jn.1:9).’ As Son of man it is found true. While we interpret scriptural passage on the basis of symbols like must be compared with like. Principle of Similitude using the symbol of light would demand the symbol of a candlestick as the most appropriate to signify the church. We have several lamp stands as in the case of the lamp stand of beaten gold used in the Tabernacle (Ex.25:31-40). It is not what was apparently used in the Temple of Herod. In the vision of Zachariah (Ze.4:2) what we are shown is altogether different. It tells us of significant…

What is the mystery of God? It is the word forever settled in heaven (Ps.119:89). Constitution for heaven and earth is the living Word. Its eternal nature works firstly as the Word made flesh. John in his gospel testified, “(He) dwelt among us and (and we beheld his glory…)full of grace and truth (Jn.1:14).” The power of word can be illustrated as a quality that not even death can quite erase. Mary seeing the risen Christ could not recognize him at first but when he spoke she knew him from his voice(Jn.20:16). Mystery of God in short is Word made flesh and eternally bound with the risen Christ whose glory the disciples beheld as a mystery outside their grasp. In the indwelling experience of the Spirit it is no longer a mystery but to be known and communicated to children of God every where. When John writes what he saw…

Revelation (v.v.1-3)
How do we explain the term revelation, which in a secular context holds a meaning? Revelation means simply making known where men interact on the basis of established values given to human speech. It covers art and language of human kind. Even here confusion could arise. St Paul while speaking of the practice of speaking in churches provides an example, “And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?…(1 Co.14:7-8)” We make ourselves known so our speech at times could place our antecedences at the same time. We have an example from the denial of St Peter on the night Jesus was taken. St Peter without in the palace of the high priest was challenged three times and on the last time one was certain,’…Thou also art one…

We read of the ransacking of the temple of God in this last chapter.

Here we have a sad end to what was begun as a glorious chapter in the rise of the nation of Israel. King David would have wished to build a house for God but God was particular that it was left for his son to build the House of God. King Solomon after he had removed the threat of Adoniah got down seriously to build a temple for the glory of God. The Ark was brought into it.What was the Ark of the testimony  but representing the eternal word settled in heaven(Ps.119:89)?” The everlasting covenant was represented in the ark by two tables of stone.

“There was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they…
