#39 • Vision Week, July 2016 • Excerpt 9 • “The Lampstand: The Significance of the Almond Blossoms” (1)

In this program we are continuing to feature excerpts from this past summer’s Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio, which focused on the lampstand described in Exodus 25 as it portrays our spiritual growth.

This week Brother Titus considers the significance of the almond blossoms that the Lord told Moses to make on the lampstand; that is, why did He choose this plant, rather than some other plant? First, as Brother Titus explains, the Hebrew word for “almond” signifies that we need to “wake up” spiritually. Secondly, based on Jeremiah 1:11-12, we may say that the almond tree relates to God’s faithfulness, because it shows He is ready to perform His word:

The word of the Lord came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.”

Because of this significance, at the end of this segment Brother Titus leads the saints to sing a hymn on God’s faithfulness.
