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!”


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.

Spiritual Meaning of REVELATION 6:6
Bible Meanings


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).

Slavery in Angola


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


  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…”

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.

    • They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.Amen. ( Roman s 1:25 )

The Bible Project


  1. Job
    • How do you trust God even when life isn’t fair and you suffer for no good reason? Job’s story invites us to consider what it means that God runs the world by wisdom, and how this truth can bring peace in dark times. Job is the last of the three books that explore these themes of biblical wisdom.
  2. Jonah
    • Watch our Read Scripture video on the book of Jonah, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. The book of Jonah is a subversive story about a rebellious prophet who despises his God for loving his enemies.
  3.  Justice
    • “Justice” is a felt need in our world today and a controversial topic. But what is justice, exactly, and who gets to define it? In this video, we’ll explore the biblical theme of Justice and discover how it’s deeply rooted in the story-line of the Bible that leads to Jesus.
  4. Exile
    • Exile is one of the core, yet often overlooked, themes underlying the entire Biblical storyline. In this video, we’ll see how Israel’s exile to Babylon is a picture of all humanity’s exile from Eden. As you might guess, Jesus is the one to open the way back home.
  5. Holiness
    • In this video, we explore the paradox that God’s holiness presents to human beings. God is the unique and set-apart Creator of all reality and the author of all goodness. However, that goodness can become dangerous to humans who are mortal and morally corrupt. Ultimately, this paradox is resolved by Jesus, who embodies God’s holiness that comes to heal His creation.
  6. Daniel
    • Watch our Read Scripture video on the book of Daniel, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. The story of Daniel motivates faithfulness despite exile in Babylon. His visions offer hope that God will bring all nations under His rule.
  7. Read Scripture: TaNaK / Old Testament
    • Watch our Read Scripture video on the overview of the Old Testament, also known as the Hebrew Bible, or the TaNaK. This video breaks down the literary design of the entire Old Testament and its flow of thought.
  8. Literal Styles in the Bible
    • Episode 3 shows how reading the Bible wisely requires that we learn about the ancient literary styles used by the biblical authors. These writers expressed their ideas and claims through a variety of different type of literature, and this video will explore why it’s important to tell them apart so we can hear their message on their terms.
  9.  Revelations
    • Revelations :- Chapter 1:11
      • Watch our Read Scripture video on the book of Revelation, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. In Revelation, John’s visions reveal that Jesus has overcome evil by his death and resurrection, and will return one day as the true king of the world.

…For this is what the LORD says: “To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, who choose what pleases Me and hold fast to My covenant—

I will give them, in My house and within My walls, a memorial and a name better than that of sons and daughters. I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off.

And the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD to minister to Him, to love the name of the LORD, and to be His servants—all who keep the Sabbath without profaning it and who hold fast to My covenant—…

Created for Glory / Formed and Made

Isaiah 43:7-8

everyone called by My name and created for My glory,

whom I have indeed formed and made.

Bring out a people who have eyes but are blind,

and who have ears but are deaf.

        • Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like

Brother Jose

Here is the message sent to me by Brother Jose after I posted this page.

Matthew 5:43-48 King James Version (KJV)

  1. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
  2. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
  3. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
  4. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
  5. And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
  6. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
