In this sermon we learn about the meaning of Wicks.
Exod 25:31-32 And thou shalt make a candlestick [of] pure gold: [of] beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side.
There is a lesson to learn in the picture of the wicks. When such oil is all over a wick, the part that burns is the oil. But the wick carries the oil and the wick chars in the process. The wick keeps charring until the fire cannot burn brightly any more. The Pure olive oil is not the problem. The Pure Gold is not the problem. As the wick chars, impurity collects. We, the wicks, are the problem.
As you come near to God, you need illumination from His Spirit because natural illumination (opinions of God) cannot help you. The wicks were then lit in the evening time. Then extinguished again in the morning. We char and become impure as we continue our lives, so we require repentance in order to be lifted up to where we belong. We repent so that we can burn brightly again. Repentance removes our charring corruption that sneaks up on us.
Don't be too proud. A wick that is raised higher than it should will cause more smoke than light. And don't condemn yourself either. A wick that is lower than it should be will either have the fire extinguished or cause a bad odour to fill the room. Trim the wick. Smoke and odour and soot will be removed and the light will burn brightly.
The point is to burn on fire. When that is desired, you are not concerned over a trimming. We don't like trimmings. We tend to want to ride on an experience we once had. It is not comfortable to think that what we once had is not good enough for today. We must be in the proper place to let our Wick burn right now. [Read less]
