In a vision last week I was shown two pierced earrings with precious stone pendants. The stones were multi-faceted and each facet reflected a different color in the Light; albeit sapphire blue was predominant. One of the earrings remained above and the other rested below on gold and silver coins. The interpretation was understood.
“Then you shall kill the ram, and take some of its blood and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron and on the tip of the right ear of his sons, on the thumb of their right hand and on the big toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar.And you shall take some of the blood that is on the altar, and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and on his garments, on his sons and on the garments of his sons with him; and he and his garments shall be hallowed, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him.” (Ex. 29:19-21 Cf. Lev. 8:24)
It was significant that Moses (the lawgiver) sprinkled only one of Aaron the High Priest and his sons’ right ears with the blood of the sacrifice. It conveyed that the old priesthood was anointed by the law and consecrated by the blood of a ram to hear and apply it in their personal lives and in service to GOD. Unlike his priestly sons, the High Priest held a much higher standard of holiness; only he could enter through the veil once a year to make atonement for the people and only he could wear the Urim and the Thummin. Apparently they were two precious stones engraved with the names of the 12 tribes of Israel that was worn in the High Priest’s breastpiece and over his heart. They were used to prophetically determine falsities and truths when making decisions for Israel’s wellbeing. (Ex. 28:29-30 Cf. Num. 27:21)
It’s been said that the Old Testament is Jesus Christ concealed and the New Testament is Jesus Christ revealed. It follows that the High Priest’s role “Typified” (spoken word) a shadow of better things to come. That is to say, our High Priest is now disclosed in Holy Writ to be the Lord Jesus Christ who exceeds in authority, power and spirit all earthly priests past, present and future. And just as the High Priest oversaw the responsibilities of his sons, so it is that Jesus Christ also oversees the responsibilities of redeemed sons and daughters called to become a peculiar priesthood. (1 Pet. 2:9) A priesthood anointed by Him to hear and listen to GOD’s laws….but in a different way.
The two drop-hook stone earrings can only be worn on pierced flesh. Symbolically speaking, one belongs to our crucified Lord and heavenly High Priest through whom the Holy Spirit of Truth comes forth (the earring that remained above). The other belongs to His sons and daughters on earth who are united as One with Him. These are they who are not anointed by the mechanics of the law (all legalistic beliefs including religious methodologies) nor are they consecrated by animal sacrifices. Instead they are anointed by the resurrected Lamb. They are calibrated to the higher frequencies (for lack of better words) of the Holy Spirit and have consecrated ears to hear. And because they have hearing minds and hearing hearts, there is no longer a need to consult with the Urim and Thummin. By abiding in Christ our heavenly High Priest, they are anointed to recognize GOD’s Laws, Word and Will and able to discern falsities and truths in accordance with the New Covenant. (Jer. 31:33; Heb.10:16; Jn.16:13). “I will write my laws in their hearts and in their minds…..” The coins upon which the earring rested symbolize the blessings that come from hearing and applying GOD’s spiritual laws and truths in our lives, in HIS service and for HIS glory.
The Holy Spirit is conveying that the Bride who is GOD’s “splendour” (Spoken Word) is being prepared and adorned with invisible heavenly jewels! It was significant that the multifaceted earrings reflected different colors because they symbolized the precious stones of the New Jerusalem’s 12 foundations in heaven where GOD’s throne (made of sapphire) is also located. A heavenly city prophesied to descend from heaven and to be implemented on a new earth that will be ruled by the Lord and His holy priesthood. “Thy Kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
GOD’s people are being earmarked for a great design – let us not miss what is taking place.
I am hearing: “Understand“.
