Time for a little Bible lesson.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalms 119:105

We are going to focus on the word lamp. God’s word is a lamp.

And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. Genesis 15:17

Spiritually, God’s word is a lamp. Here we are being taught by God that his lamp is burning.

The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out. Leviticus 6:13

Spiritually, God’s word shall ever be burning. Period. Don’t be afraid to eat one small bite of God’s words.

He [John the Baptist] was a burning and a shining light: John 5:35

Spiritually, John the Baptist was God’s word teaching God’s word. (Psalms 119:135 shine is to teach)

John the Baptist is a representative of the 144,000, Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.2, page 44. Check out this verse.

Then stood up Elias [Elijah] the prophet as fire, and his word burned like a lamp. Eccleasiasticus 48:1 That’s right, from the authentic Apocrypha.

Spiritually, Elijah was God’s word. And his word was God’s word not his own.

Elijah is a representative of the 144,000, Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.2, page 337.

Shifting gears a bit. Often the spiritual definitions have two sides, just like a coin. Here are a few verses on the other side of this spiritual definition.

Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. Job 41:19-21

That would be Satan, the leviathan.

An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. Proverbs 16:27
Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. Proverbs 26:23

Clearly this is not a reference to God or his words. As you study remember that often the definitions you learn have a good and a bad side. It’s just a part of God’s plan.

God Bless your Study
