Revelation 1:11,12 - "Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band".
Here we see Jesus in the midst of the seven golden lamps.
The lampstands are allegorical representations of the church, the body of Christ, God's people, believers in the Light:
Revelation 1:20 - "The mystery of the seven stars which you saw at My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches".
The lampstands are allegorical references to the temple at Jerusalem where there was a lampstand of seven branches; three on either side of one central one (see Exodus 25:31-37).
We are gloden lamps, precious in the sight of God and continually shining and burning with His abiding love. He pours His oil and fire into us and we are the dispensers of the light! The lamp is not a light in itself; it's only the instrument for emitting the light. The lamp has to receive the oil and fire before it can dispense light. Christ pours the unlimited oil of the anointing in us so that we can shine and burn continually and perpetually with the glory and love of the Lord to the world.
"Seven" biblically is completion, the ending of one thing, which means the start of a new thing.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF
Do I want completion in my life of some things?
Do I want certain doors to close and new ones to open?
Am I tired of going around the same old mountain hoping to get to the top, but the obstacles hold me back?
THIS IS THE TIME FOR RECEIVING THE WORKINGS OF CHRIST IN ME, FOR NEW BEGINNINGS.
I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. (Matthew 5:14)
I AM A LAMP, NOT HIDDEN ANYMORE, BECAUSE GOD IS FILLING ME WITH THE EFFECTUAL WORKINGS OF CHRIST--THE EFFECTUAL WORD IN ME AS A BEACON TO ALL WHO ARE IN THE WORLD.
