Revelations 6:6 – “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Background

I was listening in on Thoma Naidoo video “Perspectives on the Apostolic KZN – Thamo Naidoo – The Feast of Tabernacles Session 2“.

In his video, I heard him refer to our title verse.

A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny

  1. A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, signifies because the estimation of good and truth is so small as to be scarcely anything. These are signified because by “a measure (choenix)” which was the measure and the quantity measured, is signified quality, as in ; by “wheat” and “barley” is signified good and truth; and by a penny (denarius) which is a very small coin, that they are held in little or no estimation. It is said “three” measures of barley, because “three” signify all, and are predicated of truths.
  2. The reason why “wheat” and “barley” signify good and truth, here the good and truth of the church from the Word, is, because all things which belong to the field and the vineyard, signify such things as are of the church, because “a field” signifies the church as to good and truth thence, and “a vineyard,” the church as to truth and good therefrom; therefore where these are mentioned in the Word
  3. Joel
    • the angels, who perceive all things spiritually, understand nothing else; as in Joel:–
    • The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted; the must is dried up, the oil languisheth. Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vine dressers, for the wheat and the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished ( Joel 1:10-12 ).
  4. Matthew
    • All these things signify such things as are of the church. That “wheat” and “barley” signify the good and truth of the church, may be seen from these passages:–
    • John saith concerning Jesus, that He will gather the wheat into the barn, and burn up the chaff with fire (Matt. 3:11, 12).
    • Jesus said, Let the tares and the wheat grow together, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, to burn, but gather the wheat into My barn (Matt. 13:24-30).
  5. Isaiah
    • I have heard the consummation and decision from Jehovah God; he layeth up the measured wheat, and the appointed barley; for his God doth instruct him to judgment, and doth teach him (Isa. 28:22, 25, 26).
  6. Deuteronomy
    • Jehovah shall lead thee to a land of wheat and barley (Deut. 8:7, 8).
    • “A land of wheat and barley” here is the land of Canaan, by which the church is signified.
  7. Jeremiah
    • They shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of Jehovah, for wheat and must (Jer. 31:12).
  8. Jehovah shall satiate thee with the fat of wheat (Deut. 32:13, 14; Psalm. 81:16; 147:14).
  9. Ezekiel
    • Jehovah said to the prophet Ezekiel, that:–
      • He should make himself cakes of barley mixed with dung, and eat them (Ezek. 4:12, 15).
  10. Hosea
    • And to the prophet Hosea that:–
      • He should take a woman an adulteress; whom be bought for a homer of barley, and half a homer of barley (Hosea 3:1, 2).

 

And, hurt not the oil and wine

And hurt not the oil and the wine, signifies that it is provided by the Lord that the holy goods and truths, which lie interiorly concealed in the Word, shall not be violated and profaned. “Oil” signifies the good of love, and “wine” truth from that good, therefore “oil” signifies holy good, and “wine” holy truth; “hurt them not,” signifies that it is provided by the Lord that they shall not be violated and profaned; for this was heard “from the midst of the four animals,” thus from the Lord ; what is said by the Lord the same is also provided for by Him; that it is provided, may be seen in . That “oil” signifies the good of love, will be seen below; but that “wine” signifies truth from that good, is evident from the following passages:–

  1. Isaiah
    • Everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no silver, come ye, buy and eat, yea come, buy wine and milk without silver (Isa. 55:1).
  2. Joel and Amos
    • And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down must, and the hills shall flow with milk (Joel 3:18; Amos 9:13, 14).
  3. Jeremiah
    • And joy is taken away from Carmel, and in the vineyards there shall be no singing; wine shall not be trodden in the wine-press, I have made their shouting to cease (Isa. 16:10; Jer. 48:32, 33).
      • By “Carmel” is signified the spiritual church, because vineyards were there.
  4. Joel
    • Howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the must; for it is cut off from your mouth; howl, O ye vine dressers (Joel 1:5, 10, 11).
  5. Nearly the same words occur in (Hosea 9:2, 3; Zephaniah 1:13; Lamentations 2:11, 12; Micah 6:15; Amos 5:11; Isaiah 24:6, 7, 9, 11.
  6. He washeth his garments in wine and his covering in the blood of grapes; his eyes are red from wine (Gen. 49:11, 12).
    • These things are concerning the Lord; “wine” signifies Divine truth. This is the reason why the Holy Supper was instituted by the Lord, in which the bread signifies the Lord as to the Divine good, and the wine the Lord as to the Divine truth, and with the recipients the bread signifies holy good, and the wine, holy truth, from the Lord; therefore He said:–
    • I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this product of the vine, until the day when I shall drink it with you in My Father’s kingdom (Matt. 26:29; Luke 22:18).
  7. Melchizedek
    • Because “bread and wine” had this signification, therefore, also:–
      • Melchizedek, going to meet Abram, brought forth bread and wine, and he was the priest of the most high God, and he blessed Abram (Gen. 14:18, 19).
  8. Similar is the signification of the meal-offering and drink-offering, in the sacrifices, concerning which see (Exodus 29:40; Leviticus 23:12, 13, 18, 19; Numbers 15:2-15; 28:6, 7, 18; 29:1-7). The meal-offering was of fine Sour of wheat, and was therefore instead of bread, and the drink-offering was of wine. From which it may appear what is signified by these words of the Lord:–
  9. Matthew & Luke
    • Neither do men put new wine into old bottles, but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved (Matt. 9:17; Luke 5:37).
  10. “New wine” is the Divine truth of the New Testament, thus of the new church, and “old wine” is the Divine truth of the Old Testament, thus of the old church. Similar is the signification of these words of the Lord at the marriage in Cana of Galilee:-
    • Every man at first setteth forth good wine, and when men have had enough, the worse; thou hast kept the good wine until now (John 2:1-10).
  11. The Good Samaritan
    • The like is also signified by “wine” in the Lord‘s parable of the man that was wounded by robbers, that:–
    • The Samaritan poured oil and wine into his wounds (Luke 10:33, 34).
    • For by him that was “wounded by robbers,” are meant they who are spiritually wounded by the Jews by evils and falsities, to whom the Samaritan gave assistance “by pouring in oil and wine” into his wounds, that is, by teaching good and truth, and, so far as he was able, by healing.
    • Holy truth is also signified by “must” and “wine” in other parts of the Word (Isaiah 1:21, 22; 25:6; 36:17; Hosea 7:4, 5, 14; 14:6-8; Amos 2:8; Zechariah 9:15, 17; Psalms 104:14, 15). Hence it is that “a vineyard,” in the Word, signifies a church that is in truths from the Lord.
  12. That “wine” signifies holy truth, may also appear from its opposite sense, in which it signifies truth falsied and profaned; as in these passages:–
    • Whoredom, and wine, and must, occupy the heart. Their wise has failed, they have committed whoredom continually (Hos. 4:11, 17, 18).
    • “Whoredom” signifies the falsification of truth, as do “wine and must” here.
    • In the hand of Jehovah is a cup, and He hath mixed it with wine; He hath filled it with mixture, and poureth it out, and the dregs of it all the wicked of the earth suck out and drink (Psalm. 75:8).
    • Babylon is a cup of gold in the hand of Jehovah that maketh all the earth drunken; the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore they are insane (Jer. 2:7).
    • Babylon hath fallen, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the anger of her whoredom. If anyone adore the beast, he shall drink of the wine of the anger of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of the anger of God (Apoc. 14:8-10).
    • Babylon hath made all nations drink of the wine of her whoredom (Apoc. 18:3).
    • Great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fury of the anger of God (Apoc. 16:19).
    • The inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her whoredom (Apoc. 17:1, 2).
    • By the wine which Belshazzar, king of Babylon, and his magnates, and wives, and concubines, drank out of the vessels of the temple of Jerusalem, and at the same time:–
    • They praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone (Dan. 5:2-4),
    • nothing else is meant than the holy truth of the Word and of the church profaned. Wherefore the writing then appeared upon the wall, and the king was slain that night (Dan. 5:25, 30). “Wine” signifies truth falsified also in (Isaiah 5:11, 12, 21, 22; 28:1, 3, 7; 29:9; 56:11, 12; Jeremiah 13:12; 23:9, 10). The same is signified by the drink-offering which they offered to idols (Isaiah 65:11; 57:6; Jeremiah 7:18; 44:17-19; Ezekiel 20:28; Deuteronomy 32:38). That “wine” signifies holy truth, and, in the opposite sense, truth profaned, is from correspondence; for the angels, who perceive all things spiritually, understand nothing else, when man reads “wine” in the Word; such a correspondence is there between the natural thoughts of men and the spiritual thoughts of angels. It is similar with the wine in the Holy Supper, and hence it is, that introduction into heaven is effected by the Holy Supper (n. 224).

Mother in Training ( MIT )

Yesterday was a good day.

I drove about two hours to come out and support a friend whose mother passed a week or so ago.

The event was very good and one of the things I remembered is the founding Pastor saying that as he was preparing to step down as the Lead Pastor what he wanted most from his designee is a pledge to be just as attentive to the senior members has he was.

The service itself lasted over two hours.  Later I asked one of the members why so long.  He replied that they really do celebrate the “Life of …”.

Later we visited the home of my friend’s mother.

Everything was together and coordinated.

As we were preparing to wrap up I noticed the ladies doing most of the work.  Some were inside helping with the food.

As one who sat outside, I was more observant of the ladies that were serving and tending to the senior flock outside.

The grace, depth, and the quick wit of their conversation is what stays with me yet even this morning.

They folded up the chairs, drew down the campers, and gathered up the table clothes.

In this particular group, there were three ladies.

I heard one of them refer to the one that was the “Lead” as the MIT.  I looked at them puzzled as to why she was being called MIT.  They noticed my bewilderment and asked if I knew what MIT meant and I replied yes.

Stating it meant Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  She replied No.  And, offered that it meant “Mother in Training“.

Being one who weighs words, I have tried to picture those words many applicability.

I think the first association that I drew was that the lead is preparing to be a senior citizen, as well.  Culturally being elderly is sometimes associated with having earned the rights to be needy and directive.

In essence it is a “Word Play” lazily directed at my new friend, “The Lead“.

Longer term it will resonate with all those called to mother younger people in society, places of worship and honor.

And what a privilege that is.

Twice I asked her how they enjoin the togetherness and harmony with each other.  Knowing me I likely asked in different ways.

And, both times she answered affirmatively that it is through surrender to our Lord and Savior.  She continued that when things starts to go sideways she asks herself that this likely not how her savior will navigate this journey; and that eases her to turn over the wheel.

They dialogue within the group, hear each other truths, and allow the Spirit to witness and bring them to where HE IS.

Quotes

  1. In a Church meeting, somebody will get up and speak in tongues and people will ask could the Preacher not have said that.  But, in truth, if the message is to those in sin, people will hear it, and rush up in to the altar – Perry Stone.
  2. If the preacher is not living right, the people in the Congregation will pick it up and say that person is not living right and he is a hypocrite

  1. The Secret of the Gospel of the Grace of God
    • 25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery [secret] which has been kept secret for long ages past, 26 but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith [Romans 16:25-26]
  2. The Secret of the Blinding of Israel
    • 25 For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery [secret]—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB.” “THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, WHEN I TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS.” [ Romans 11.25-27 ]
  3. The Secret of the Rapture or Resurrection of the Body of Christ
    • 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery [secret]; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. [ 1 Corinthians 15.51-53 ]
  4.  The Secret of the One Body
    • 1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles— if indeed you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace which was given to me for you; that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery [secret], as I wrote before in brief. By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery [secret] of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery [secret] which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;  [ Ephesians 3:1-9 ]
  5. The Secret of Heavenly Citizenship
    • “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,” [ Ephesians 1:3 ]
    • But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus [ Ephesians 2.4-6 ]
    • 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself [ Philippians 3.20-21 ]
    • 1 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. [ 2 Corinthians 5.1-3 ]
  6. The Secret of His Will
    • He made known to us the mystery [secret] of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. [ Ephesians 1.9-10 ]
    • 19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say,whether things on earth or things in heaven [ Colossians 1.19-20 ]
  7. The Secret of the Grace of God
    • Paul revealed that grace, not Law, is the realm in which the believer in Christ operates. Paul began every letter with a grace salutation to remind believers of his gospel of this new relationship. No word more clearly identifies Paul’s ministry that the word “grace.” It is the Greek χάρις and means “favor.” God gives us what we do not merit or deserve. When someone receives God’s grace by believing the gospel (1 Corinthians 15.1-4), God begins His transformative work to enable us to love God and seek after His righteousness. God’s goal is that every believer becomes transformed, conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 8.29; Philippians 1.6). Paul was the epitome of God’s grace. Before his conversion, Paul exercised all his power to destroy those who were believing in Jesus of Nazareth as the Messiah. Yet God did not destroy him. He saved him. From that moment Paul became the world’s foremost follower of His Savior (1 Timothy 1.15).
    • The word χάρις appears 156 times in 147 verses in the New Testament.  Paul’s usage accounts for 103 verses (70%).
    • Paul (not Peter, not the Twelve) revealed that Christians are not under the Law of Moses but are under grace (Romans 6.14; 7.2-6; 8.2-4). He alone revealed man is justified by faith alone apart from works (Romans 3.28). He revealed Christ is the end or goal (τέλος) of the Mosaic Law (Romans 10.4). No other writer of Scripture revealed these things. They are all part of the “secret” the ascended Lord revealed to the great apostle.
  8.  The Secret of Identification with Christ
    • Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again;death no longer is master over Him [ Romans 6.3-9 ].
    • 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace [ Romans 6.10-14 cf. 8.1-39 ].
    • “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. [  Galatians 2.20 ]
    • 10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; 11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. [ Colossians 2.10-14 ].
  9.  The Secret of Lawlessness
    • Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery [secret] of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. [ 2 Thessalonians 2.3-12 ].
  10. The Secret of the Faith
    • 8 Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, 9 but holding to the mystery [secret] of the faith with a clear conscience [1 Timothy 3.8-9 ].

Slavery in Angola

Link

In current day Angola, high levels of child trafficking, commercial sexual exploitation, pornography, forced labor, sexual slavery, and other forms of exploitation are reported, in part due to the civil war-caused break down of social structures and traditional security mechanisms active before independence. Angola is a source country for significant number of men, women and children trafficked for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation. Children have been trafficked internally and also to Namibia and South Africa for the purposes of sexual exploitation and domestic and commercial labor. The Government of Angola does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.

At present, it is estimated that over one million primary school age children are out of school, the majority of them being girls. There is a strong correlation between women’s education and the increased vulnerability of both mothers and children to a range of life-threatening conditions, including forced labour and prostitution.

Igbo people in the Atlantic slave trade

Link

  1. Ethnic groups were fairly saturated in certain parts of the Americas because of planters preferences for certain African peoples.The Igbo were dispersed to colonies such as Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti, Barbados, the colonies in the future United States, Belize, Trinidad and Tobago among others. Elements of Igbo culture can still be found in these places. In the United States the Igbo were commonly found in the states of Maryland and Virginia.
  2. The slave trade in this region really started to take off with the appearance of the first Portuguese Ships. There were multiple different ways that people were gathered or taken to be sold off to the Europeans. Most of the slaves that were taken were from the Igbo and the Ibibio peoples, as well as some of the smaller groups in the surrounding area. While some people were taken during raids and wars, it was not the most common way for people to become enslaves, contrary to popular belief. One of the more common ways for people to become enslaved were to be sold off. For example, if a thief was caught in a village, the person would be sold to the slave traders by the elders. The elders would then use the money for the betterment of the community. Another example is for people who were unfaithful to their spouse. Women who had committed adultery could be sold off by their husbands. Another common way to be brought into slavery was to be sold, or “pawned” to settle debts. Children were often used to settle these debts.Kidnapping is also a common way to be forced into slavery. Slave traders would often seek out children who were alone, or small groups of people who were traveling and ambush them. This forced people to have to travel in rather large, armed, groups to protect themselves. Although this is similar to war and raiding, it is at a much smaller scale. Children who were home alone while their parents were working were especially easy targets for the slave traders.

    Adults were the most common ones taken, amounting to roughly 85% of the total slave trade from this region, children only made up about 15%. The main reason for this was because adults were already capable of performing hard labor, and had better chances of surviving the grueling journey across the sea.

  3. Haiti
    • Some slaves arriving in Haiti included Igbo people who were considered suicidal and therefore unwanted by plantation owners. According to Adiele Afigbo there is still the Creole saying of Ibos pend’cor’a yo (the Ibo hang themselves).Aspects of Haitian culture that exhibit this can be seen in the Ibo loa, a Haitian loa (or deity) created by the Igbo in the Vodun religion.
  4. United States
    • In the 19th century the state of Virginia received around 37,000 slaves from Calabar of which 30,000 were Igbo according to Douglas B. Chambers. The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia estimates around 38% of captives taken to Virginia were from the Bight of Biafra. Igbo peoples constituted the majority of enslaved Africans in Maryland. Chambers has been quoted saying “My research suggests that perhaps 60 percent of black Americans have at least one Igbo ancestor…”

“… Making me a product of Survival.” – HomeTeam History

Despite his questioning, he affirms his faith in Christianity, as seen in the penultimate sentence of his work that quotes the prophet Micah: “After all, what makes any event important, unless by its observation we become better and wiser, and learn ‘to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly before God?'” – Olaudah Equiano ( Link )

God gave her a powerful ministry to those poor lost souls.

Chasing the Dragon

  • Jackie Pullinger, author of the best-selling book Chasing the Dragon, is more widely known for her ministry in Hong Kong helping transform the lives of hundreds of drug addicts. Jackie left England not certain where God would take her; she bought a ticket on a boat and landed in Hong Kong where she has been a missionary for 45 years.In this compelling interview, we learn how Jackie came to faith while still at school; how her sea voyage, whilst still in her early twenties, eventually delivered her to Hong Kong, and how God has supernaturally transformed the lives of countless, poverty-stricken addicts in the province. We even learn what she said to the Queen on receiving an MBE for services to the poor.
