3-HOLY SPIRIT

OIL FOR THE LAMP
Exodus 27:20-21 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. (21) In the tent of meeting, without the veil which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall keep it in order from evening to morning before Jehovah: it shall be a statue for ever throughout their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.

OIL IS A SYMBOL OF THE HOLY SPIRITZech 4:2-6 And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; [3] also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side." [4] Then I answered and said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, "What are these, my lord?" [5] So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my lord." [6] Then he answered and said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts."
John 3:34 "For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure.
Heb. 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy companions.

  • 1. In Christ the oil-fed light ever burns…the Light of the world ohn 8:12 Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life." (NAS)
  • 2. Clearly this is not the world but the sanctuary.
  • 3. It is a question not of testimony in and to the world, but of our communion and worship as believer priests in the holiest
    Heb 10:19-20 Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, [20] by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, (NAS)

IN THE TABERNACLE THERE WERE TWO COMPARTMENTS-TWO LIGHTS

  • 1. The holy place with the lampstand —
    Ex 25:31 "Then you shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand {and} its base and its shaft are to be made of hammered work; its cups, its bulbs and its flowers shall be {of one piece} with it. (NAS)
  • 2. The Holy of Holies with the Shekinah, or manifested glory of God.
  • 3. These two places are now one
    Mat 27:50-51 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up {His} spirit. [51] And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth shook; and the rocks were split, (NAS)
  • Heb 9:6-8 Now when these things have been thus prepared, the priests are continually entering the outer tabernacle, performing the divine worship, [7] but into the second only the high priest {enters}, once a year, not without {taking} blood, which he offers for himself and for the sins of the people committed in ignorance. [8] The Holy Spirit {is} signifying this, that the way into the holy place has not yet been disclosed, while the outer tabernacle is still standing, (NAS)
  • Heb 10:19-22 (NAS) Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, [20] by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, [21] and since {we have} a great priest over the house of God, [22] let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled {clean} from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEE THERE ARE STILL TWO LIGHTS.

  • 1. Christ, the Light of Life -- John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
    • a. through the Spirit giving light upon the holy things of God.
    • b. the bread of the Presence and altar of incense.
  • 2. The Shekinah, now on the face of Jesus -- 2Cor 4:6 For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

INTO THIS TWOFOLD LIGHT WE, AS BELIEVER-PRIESTS, ARE BROUGHT —
1Pet 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

  • 1. We "walk in the light," not merely which He gives but in which He lives —
    1John 1:7 but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. (NAS)

WHAT OF THE COMMAND IN THIS TEXT TO BRING "PURE OIL"?

  • 1. This is implies that there is an impure oil—a fake—a copy—a forgery.
  • 2. Yet it is because our access, apprehension, communion, and transformation are by the Spirit
    Eph 2:18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. (NAS)
    1Cor 2:14-15 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. [15] But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no man. (NAS)
    2Cor 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. (NAS)
    2Cor 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. (NAS)
    Php 2:1 If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion. (NAS)
  • 3. Our title to His Presence is in the blood
    Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (NAS)
  • 4. But only as we are indwelt by the Spirit
    John 3:5 NAS Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    Titus 3:5 NAS He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
    John 20:22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit." (NAS)
  • 5. Baptized in the Spirit
    Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance. (NAS)
  • 6. Filled with the Spirit
    Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and {began} to speak the word of God with boldness. (NAS)
    Eph 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit. (NAS)
  • 7. Only then do we really walk in the Light
    Gal 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. [25] If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. (NAS)
