Pillar of "Fire" and "Cloud"

Additions: 9-13-15


"I was thinking about the 1st tabernacle of God, and how the shekinah light and cloud have a representation today through Christ's true Brothers as temple members. Not from invited in general, but with those proving faithful. The faithful are like a pillar of fire, in that they preach the fire words of Jah that refine or consume the Invited who are stubble. As temple stones and the HS residing within them, the pillar of fire is seen through them. The truth/fire being revealed, proves they are true and faithful Temple members. Don't know about the cloud by day.
 I often wonder if at the sunset/sunrise, whether the change from fire to cloud was instant..or whether there was a short period where there was fire within the cloud. To see either would prove Jah was present there..but to see that change would have cemented He was truly there. Im sure there must have been faithful who appreciated what that manifestation really meant and made it a matter of attention to watch that change between cloud and fire. Im sure it created shimmering shadows in the night as real fire does.
 Just as that temple was a representation of the temple members today, Jah's fire words are manifested through faithful temple members."


Thanks for your thoughts about the original Tabernacle, and how wonderfully the spiritual one fulfills what was foreshadowed by the physical Tent of God (Ex.25:8,9; Acts7:44; Heb.8:5,6; 9:23; 10:1) (1Cor.3:16; 6:19; Rom.8:9; Eph.2:20,21,22; Rev.21:3; Heb.12:22,23; Eph.1:3; 2:6) which is the "household of God" (1Tim.3:15; Heb.3:6; Matt.24:45; Eph.2:19,20; Amos3:7; Rev.1:20; 10:7; Matt.5:17,18; 24:34).

You make a great point about the "fire" "for night" and "cloud" "by day" (Neh.9:19).
The night (darkness), is the world, ruled by Satan and his seed of disobedience (Eph.2:2). 
(Luke16:8; 1Thess.5:7; 1John2:11; Prov.4:19; 2:13; John11:10; 3:19; Job 18:5,6; Matt.25:8)

The faithful priests are the light of the world (Matt.5:14,15; Mal.2:7; 2Cor.5:18; 4:6,5; Acts26:18; 1Pet.2:9).
They do not belong to darkness, or the night, or the world (1John2:15; Rom.12:2; Acts26:18; James4:4). 
The day is for those who have been enlightened (1Thess.5:5; Prov.4:18; Heb.6:4,5; 2Pet.1:19; 2Cor.4:6; 1Pet.2:9).
Once sealed as slaves of God alone,
they are vessels of His Word of Fire 
(Jer.23:29; 5:14; Rev.11:5; Matt.10:20).
That fire is to light up the night/darkness/world (Matt.5:14,15; Eph.6:12; 3:10).
Fire either refines or condemns and consumes 
(Isa.48:10; 1Pet.1:7; Job 23:10; Rom.8:19; Mal.3:3,18; Zech.13:9), 
depending upon the substance of one's deeds 
(1Cor.3:13,12,14; Rev.3:18; 2Thess.1:7; 2Pet.3:7,10,12; Matt.13:30; 3:12; Luke12:49).
Both the refining,
and condemnation (uncovering of hidden wickedness), 
happen during the symbolic "night", while the undiscerning, sleep 
(Luke21:34-36; 12:37-38,40,45; 1Thess.5:2-4).

Why was the cloud seen as the manifestation during the day?
Because the cloud are the faithful who manifest the presence of God in His Holy Temple 
   (Heb.12:1; 1Cor.3:16; 6:19,20; Rev.3:12; Ps.46:4; Rev.22:1,2; 10:1; Heb.1:11; 2Pet.3:7,13) 
within which cloud of faithful angels/stars;
Christ manifests his return (Rev.1:7; Luke21:27,28; Mark13:26,27; 14:62; Heb.12:22; Dan.7:13; Matt.16:27; 2Thess.2:8; Acts1:9,10,11; 1Thess.4:17; Rev.11:12). 
These hold droplets of living water (John7:38; Job 26:8; 36:28,29; 37:11,15,13; Mal.3:10; Ps.18:12; 77:17; 99:7) (Isa.4:5; 45:8) within which the light of Christ is reflected (2Cor.4:6; 3:18), into a rainbow (Eze.1:28; Rev.10:1). That rainbow contains God's covenant promise (Gen.9:13-16), to save from total destruction in the time of the end (Jer.31:11; Isa.48:20; Matt.24:21-22; Mark 10:26-27; Rev.7:10).

The identity of the cloud is only seen by those who are in "daylight". They can see the cloud by day, and the flashes of lightning within the cloud 
(Ex.19:16; Luke17:24; Job 37:3,11,12; 36:32; 38:34,35, (Isa.41:27); 
Rev.4:5; 5:6; Zech.4:10,13,14; Rev.11:3,4) .
