Secrets of the Menorah
Creation Calendar Tavnith Unveiled
Continued from Part 4
It was a busy morning yesterday. Having shown me a vision explaining various facets of the sacred tavnith or pattern of the Menorah, the sacred seven-armed candlestick that Yahweh commanded made for the Holy Place of the Old Covenant Tabernacle, Yahweh showed me how the Menorah encodes the Creation Calendar, otherwise known as the biblical solar-lunar calendar.
"As for Elohim (God), His way is perfect; the davar (word) of Yahweh is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him" (2 Sam.22:31, NKJV).
The Menorah is itself a fractal of Yahweh's sacred tavnith (pattern) on many levels, showing the relationship between the Seven Ruachs (Spirits) and the Elohim (Head), the Seven Annual Festivals and the Plan of Salvation, and much else besides. Little did I dream that it also contained the sacred tavnith (pattern) of time.
He first drew my attention to the seven lamps (#1-7) which, amongst many other things, also represent the seven days of the week, beginning with Rishon (the first day of the week) on the right and ending in the centre with Shibi'i (the seventh or Sabbath Day). He then asked me what the foundation of the Calendar was, and I replied, Rosh Chodesh, and I saw that this represented the base of the Menorah from which the rest is built up and supported. I then saw the four nodes above the base and immediately understood these represented the four weeks of each lunar month, I to IV, which line up with Shabi'i or Shabbat. Thus Rosh Chodesh aligns the sabbaths of each month as well as the positioning of the seven days in each week.
Isn't it marvelous the way everything lines up when you know what sacred tavnith (pattern) is? It makes everything so much easier and simpler. Yahweh is truly perfect!
