A better Light!
Moses tabernacle in the wilderness is covered by a cloud of glory. There are degrees of glory in the
After the sun rose high enough to reach over the linen fence, there was a reflection from the shining
brass of the laver and the brazen altar. As the sun rose, the light grew. The priests of the outer court
were busy with activity. But that activity had to end with the sunset.
It is the same thing with our Fundamentalist Churches of today. Salvation is wonderful and brings great
light. This is a realm of the Spirit. There is a lot of activity with faith and the Word. Praise God! They get
souls saved, they teach Calvary, and they teach holiness.
However, when you go in the sanctuary, you are not affected by the setting of the sun. In addition, the
blood from the sacrifice from the outer court is taken into the inner court and sprinkled upon the
furniture there. Those in the outer court cannot see the light that is in the inner court. The light from the
seven branch candlestick shines on the table of showbread, and the altar of incense, reflecting the light
of God’s divine nature, to those priests who minister there daily. There is no natural light here. The roof
is made of linens, ram’s skins, goatskins, and badger (dolphin) skins. In addition, there are no windows.
This is the realm of the spirit filled Body of Christ. The ministry of this place is Spirit given, Spirit
revealed, and Spirit operated. Without the light from the candlestick, this place is in total darkness. In
addition, when the Body of Christ losses the oil and light of the Holy Spirit it is a very dark place. In spite
of the glory of the Spirit, it is still an imperfect place. It is now time to move to something greater.
Let’s pass through the final veil into the most holy place. Here we find a light far greater than either of
the others. Here there are no windows and no candlestick. This is not the natural light of man’s
understanding. It is also not a flickering light of an imperfect Body of Christ that needs a fresh supply of
the Spirit daily to keep the flesh from taking over. This is an eternal and perfect light, that brings the
fullness of His knowledge and understanding and presence. Here there are no failures, no death, no
defeat. Hallelujah! Not all priesthood, or ministries come to this High Calling. This is only for “sons”. This
is the Melchisedec ministry. This is our inheritance, bought for us and paid for by our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are His inheritance!
Romans 8:29 says For whom He foreknew, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His
Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Romans 8:18 says, For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory (thinking) which shall be revealed IN US.
Where is the glory to be revealed In heaven? In the sky? In angels? No in US!
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of
Out from that veil will come a company of sons who will have the message of the everlasting Gospel, the
same message Jesus preached, and will do the works of Jesus and even greater works. They will
manifest the glory of the Father, as Jesus did. They will have the Spirit without measure, as was given to
Jesus. There will be no limit to the power of this Sonship.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
You might even call this group of people the Melchisedec Company.
Certainly there will be judgement on earth. But 1 Thessalonians 5:9 says, But we are not appointed unto
wrath, but to obtain full deliverance and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Forever in His Love,
