In Solomon’s Temple was a Seven Candled Menorah. (1) Why is this one not being used today. Every household I look at seems to have a menorah of nine candles. (2) Yet, in Exodus 25:37 the actual construction is to depict seven candles. Nowhere is there any indication that nine candles are supposed to be on the Menorah. But in Zechariah 4:14 there is an indication of two anointed men standing beside the Lord of the whole earth. (3) In another context the phrase: “Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit.” is used. This is in Zechariah 4: 6.(4). However these two extra items are olive branches and are not part of the Menorah Candle. What was in the temple stays in the temple according to some rabbis interpretations. (5) But I have a different interpretation of the meaning of the seven candlesticks of the Menorah. God always has a specific reason for including a specific number. The dynamics of a specific amount of gold which would include a talent of gold only is very specific. (6) The objective of light is to give off light. The amount of light to be given off also would have very specific in God’s mind. There originally were 10 Menorah’s and I am sure each one was placed in specific parts of Solomon’s Temple to help out with the lighting of an area. If you were to have nine candles instead of seven candles as per the instructions this would be stretching the gold by 9/7th or .77777 of the original or 1.2857 of the revised. I am not an electrician but I do know that a 100 watt bulb lights up an area completely different from a 75 watt light bulb would. The specific size of Noah’s Ark (7) of 450 feet long by 75 feet wide and 45 feet was extremely important. (A cubit was the length of a man’s arm from fingertips to elbow.) (About 18 inches for a cubit.) From my recollection the exact drafting of this size of boat would be the optimum in a flotation device. The cycle of the waves which flow over the earth and at a seemingly random occurrence with respect to the dimensions of Noah’s Ark would prevent the boat from capsizing or rolling in the extremes. Theoretically all boats should be of the size which Noah built but then again all construction is different. My conclusion is that all mathematical and physics tools which God created were developed for the correct ballast of Noah’s ship. If God can design a boat then what would prevent God from constructing the perfect candle. All that do not believe this should instead go back to the drawing board. If looking at specific dimensions then why also did God demand Gold to be used. Looking at burning point for candle flames this can be easily seen. When “on average, On average, the maximum flame temperature will be about 2550 deg F. (8) Looking at this then a temperature as close as possible to 2550 or above would be ideal. The metals which are above this temperature are: Chromium (3380), Cobalt (2723), Inconel (2540-2600), Incoloy (2540-2600), Iridium (4440), Iron (2797), Molybdenum (4750), Nickel (2647), Niobium (Columbium) (4473), Rhodium (3569), Silicon (2572), Carbon Steel (2600-2800), Stainless Steel (2750), Tantalum (5400), Thorium (3180), Titanium (3040), Tungsten (6150), and Vanadium (3450). Most of these names I do not even recognize. These metals would not have been around until Roman times as well. But more malleable common metals which were around would be: Brass (1710), Copper (1983), Gold (1945) and Silver (1760). From the list here you can plainly see that Gold would not only be the only clear choice even if copper is 38 Fahrenheit degrees higher for its melting stage but of a superior continual quality. Brass, copper and Silver would have to be continually polished. But where was the technology for polishing these metals except for elbow grease and plenty of it also per candle. The difference in the maintenance and the requirement of continual polishing was shall we say a “no-brainer”. Besides that it looks pretty. The Egyptians demanded that the Israelites leave with all the gold, silver, and raiment which they could carry so that God’s punishments would leave them.” … they asked of the Egyptians vessels of silver and gold, and very much raiment. … and they stripped the Egyptians.” (10) So with both silver and gold the higher melting point being gold then obvious conclusion would be to use the gold (1945) and not the silver (1760). Let’s skip forward a few years. Going forward to 1604 until 1611 when King James I of England had the Holy Bible translated for the Church of England with 47 scholars. (11) “In January 1604, King James I of England convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations .” (11) But what really happened after the Church of England had hired Jesuits. All of the scholars or interpreters were killed by the Jesuits. Also the Jesuits had purposely misinterpreted passages. Thus the punishment of King James I descendents have not been on the throne of England since that time. King James I of England was of the House of Pharoah King David and the House of York and the House of Stuart. The House of Stuart is more commonly referred to as the White Rose and the current Queen of England of the House of Windsor is referred to as the Red Rose. If God’s wrath continues for 400 years then how are the people of Israel going to continue with misrepresenting the Menorah every year with nine candlesticks and not seven. A member of the House of David believes today that the nine on the Menorah (12) symbolizes Satan. The number nine specifically refers to Satan. This is for the nine members of the One World Government which also met and concluded on Friday, December 11, 2009. The symbolism is too striking for reverence to the Nine Candled Menorah. She was asked since this was referencing the number nine and the take over of the World away from God could this in-fact be construed as Idol worship which is specifically prohibited by God’s word. ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ Exodus 20:3 (13) Let us take this from another perspective to show that the nine candled Menorah is a symbolism of earthly or Satanic power and persuasion. The seven candled Menorah is lite from left to right as it should be. There is definite symbolism here and the persuasiveness of the symbolism may be the only reason why the nine candled Menorah should be destroyed in every household. The nine candled Menorah is lit from right to left. Why the difference. Does anyone know. Again, the answer was verse from Pat Shupe of the House of David. The seven candled Menorah is the symbolism also of the Israelites leaving Egypt and crossing over the Dead Sea out of Egyptian territory and lands and into the desert. When you travel from Egypt you are traveling from West to East. And this is the reason why the candles are lit from left to right. Then in the same context if you are lighting the candles on the nine candled Menorah from right to left you are thus saying to God that you do not want His comfort and joy but rather you want to return to the bondage which you just came from and go back to Egypt. Egypt was known for the ungodliness and sin. Is this really what Israelites of today want to show. Do they want to show that they are willing to go back up to Egypt and become a people of sin and ungodly worship. I do not think so. But if they are separated then they should exterminate the nine candled Menorah and smash it and destroy the object of ungodliness and yes, the object of anti-semanticism. One last testament to the actions of God if things are not carried on as He wishes. Genesis 17:14 “Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.” When Moses was commanded to lead his people outside of Egypt by God then God strikes him with an illness as if unto death. The illness goes away after his son is circumcised. Definite words of promise and definite words of separation. Let’s conform to the original Solomon’s Temple candle pattern and stop showing off Satan as the victor. Talked with the Dali Lama’s nephew last night and he stated that he loves God. He has said he has not seen any degree of love from the people of Seattle. Everyone is only caring about themselves and they have no care or love for even people who they know. Perhaps he is right I keep asking myself. Worship God as God wants to be worshipped. Do not create feelings for objects which have no meaning to God. Otherwise if you do is this not idol worship. Is the person asking the questions, the Dali Lama’s nephew more in-tune with God’s wishes than the Jewish people. Should then if this is the case the next Solomon’s Temple be constructed in Nepal. The Treasures of Solomon need to be reassembled and Solomon’s Temple needs to be rebuilt. Where is God to rest if His House is not build.
1) Exodus 25: 37
37 And thou shalt make the lamps thereof, seven; and they shall light the lamps thereof, to give light over against it.
The nine-branched menorah used on Chanukah is commonly patterned after this menorah, because Chanukah commemorates the miracle that a day’s worth of oil for this menorah lasted eight days.
3) Zechariah 4:10-14
10 For who hath despised the day of small things? even they shall see with joy the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel, even these seven, which are the eyes of HaShem, that run to and fro through the whole earth.’
11 Then answered I, and said unto him: ‘What are these two olive-trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?’
12 And I answered the second time, and said unto him: ‘What are these two olive branches, which are beside the two golden spouts, that empty the golden oil out of themselves?’
13 And he answered me and said: ‘Knowest thou not what these are?’ And I said: ‘No, my lord.’
14 Then said he: ‘These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the L-rd of the whole earth.’
4) Zechariah 4: 6 …”Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit.”
4 And I answered and spoke to the angel that spoke with me, saying: ‘What are these, my lord?’
5 Then the angel that spoke with me answered and said unto me: ‘Knowest thou not what these are?’ And I said: ‘No, my lord.’
6 Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying: ‘This is the word of HaShem unto Zerubbabel, saying: Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit, saith HaShem of hosts.
5) The menorah in the First and Second Temples had seven branches. After the Temples were destroyed, a tradition developed not to duplicate anything from the Temple and therefore menorah’s no longer had seven branches.
6) Exodus 25: 39. Of a talent of pure gold shall it be made, with all these vessels.
7) Genesis 6:15 in the Bible tells us the Ark’s dimensions were at least 135 meters long (300 cubits), 22.5 meters wide (50 cubits), and 13.5 meters high (30 cubits). That’s 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high! It could have been larger, because several larger-sized cubits were used. But the 45-centimeter (18-inch) cubit is long enough to show the enormous size of the Ark.
(A cubit was the length of a man’s arm from fingertips to elbow.)
Q – What is the temperature of a candle flame? A – The exact temperature of a candle flames depends on the material being consumed (burned). First, it is important to understand that a candle does NOT burn the wick (the string). It is the wax that acts as the fuel for the candle flame. The heat of the flame melts the wax, transforming the solid wax into a liquid, which then travels up the wick. (This process is known as capillary action.) Eventually the liquid wax is turned into a gas (like steam from a boiling kettle on the stove) and is consumed by the flame. Different waxes will have different flame temperatures. On average, the maximum flame temperature will be about 2550 deg F. (Remember that water boils at 212 deg F.)
