Two messages in one day – the Holy Spirit is flowing with revelations.

And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage. (Ezra 9:8)

The Diamond Nail

Some time ago, an open door was shown in a vision. What stood prominent was that its hinge had been inserted with a diamond nail instead of a metal peg. The nail emitted sparks of colorful lights. And that is how the vision ended.  Then this morning a colorful cup was shown. While rereading verses in the Book of Isaiah later this morning, a deeper revelation of these 3 visions, altogether, was better understood.

Prophet Isaiah and King Eliakim

Reiterating Isaiah who prophesied the following words over Eliakim who replaced Shebna as king over Judah and Jerusalem:

I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government unto his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder, so he shall open, and none shall shut, and he shall shut, and none shall open. And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place: and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house. And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.  In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down and fall: and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah. 22:21-25)

Tragically after a time of faithful service, Eliakim fell and the peg that had been fastened in a secure place was removed.  He lost the key of authority including his position and the burden that it caused for the people was also cut off.  In Eliakim we can discern the weaknesses, sinful frailties and burdens of fallen human leaders when they are not hinged on God’s commandments and His finished works.

King of Kings and Lord of Lords

The Eliakims and rulers of this fallen world have, in a spiritual sense, already been replaced with Jesus Christ. Note the similarities between Eliakim’s prophecies and the great King, Jesus Christ. Though He presently sits on a throne in heaven, He will return to also rule on David’s throne and reign over the house of Israel but forevermore. (Lk. 1:31-33; Heb.1:3) Yes, He is the One upon whose shoulders all earthly governments must rest and rule during the millennial reign. Isaiah foretold that He would be that mighty God, Prince of Peace and wonderful Counselor whose reign would be everlasting. (Is. 9:6). It is Him who has the Key of David and who assigns keys of leadership, authority and revelation! (Mat. 16:19; Rev. 3:7) He is that heavenly Door that He opens and shuts for us! (Jn. 10:9) He is the narrow entrance to heaven because He has hinged ‘the way’ with the nails of His Cross! Oh that precious Diamond pressed and forged in the travail of the great Crucifixion – that Rock – the Christ! (1 Cor. 10:4; Rom. 5:8-10) And finally, the colorful cup – a vessel – symbolizes communion and the multiple blessings bestowed on New Covenant heirs even now in the spiritual sense. 

There is coming a day when the Lord will stake His government in this plane of existence with His own appointed kings and priests during the millennial reign. And then, finally, after a period of great tribulation the burdens and bondage that earthly leaders have wrought on the redeemed remnant will be cut off! Praises and thanksgivings be to the everlasting God! GOD’S great master plan for the end days is in the works and we are called to prepare for it!
