The Lord’s House Will Be Rebuilt

The angel who was speaking with me returned and woke me up as one might wake up someone who is sleeping. He asked me, “What do you see?”

I answered, “I see a solid gold lamp stand with a bowl on top and seven lamps on it. There are seven spouts for each lamp that is on top of it. There are also two olive trees beside it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”

I asked the angel who was speaking with me, “What do these things mean, sir?”

Then the angel asked me, “Don’t you know what they mean?”

“No, sir,” I answered.

Then he replied, “This is the word Yahweh spoke to Zerubbabel: You won’t succeed by might or by power, but by my Ruach, says Yahweh Tsebaoth. What a high mountain you are! In front of Zerubbabel you will become a plain. He will bring out the topmost stone with shouts of ‘Blessings, blessings on it!’”

Then Yahweh spoke his word to me. He said, “Zerubbabel’s hands have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that Yahweh Tsebaoth has sent me to you. 10 Who despised the day when little things began to happen? They will be delighted when they see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand. (These seven eyes of Yahweh roam over all the earth.)”

11 I asked the angel, “What do these two olive trees at the right and the left of the lamp stand mean?” 12 Again I asked him, “What is the meaning of the two branches from the olive trees next to the two golden pipes that are pouring out gold?”

13 He asked me, “Don’t you know what these things mean?”

“No, sir,” I answered.

14 So he said, “These are the two anointed ones who are standing beside the Adonay of the whole earth.”
