A Measure Of The Temple
A witness and a testimony. It is the job of the laity to measure the Church and state. And to do something about it. Praying is not enough. Voting is not enough. Testify. Speak the truth. Defend the teachings of the Church. Defend life, marriage, and the family. It’s your job.
A Great Empire
A reign with Christ. The Byzantine Empire lasted a thousand years. The Holy Roman Empire is the other witness where the Church and state worked together. The two olive trees are the two states being led by the candlestick which represents the light of the Church. The laity must restore the light.
A Witness Times Two
A candlestick and olive tree. Two olive trees lead us to Zerubbabel who is always associated with Joshua and found in Zechariah. A governor and high priest working together to rebuild the temple. The Church should be leading the state but today it is the other way around. Only the laity can restore the Church.
A Witness For The Truth
A lit candle in the darkness. Start by showing up where and when it is necessary. A witness is one who can testify. Speak the truth always especially when the enemy is trying to cancel it. The teachings of the Church are not being changed. They are just being ignored. Defend the Church. His Church. His teachings.
A Drag Queen
A Google search. You find what you are looking for. The light shines in the darkness. If you have a candle, now is the time to light it. Be a witness. History has two witnesses. The candlestick is the Church and the olive tree is the state working together like Zerubbabel and Joshua worked together to rebuild the temple.
A witness to what no longer exists. What was Victorinus looking at when he wrote his commentary on the Apocalypse? What was Eusebius looking at when he wrote his history of the Church? We can only speculate based on what they wrote and what is reasonable. Can we make sense of it?
A witness will speak out. Like a lit candlestick in the darkness. The lie can’t handle the truth. The crusade to restore the Church starts with you. What that looks like depends on you. If you have an ear, listen to those who are already speaking out and watch what they do.
A High Priest
A candlestick and olive tree. Two witnesses. A search for two olive trees leads to Zechariah 4:3 and that leads to Zerubbabel a governor who is always associated with Joshua a high priest. Church and state. History has two Christian empires; the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire. Both were defeated by the horns of the second beast. The Byzantines actually used Greek Fire coming out of the mouths of animal figures mounted on the boats to defeat the Muslim attackers.
A witness times two. The candlestick is the light that guides the olive tree. The Church and state must work together as they did with the Holy Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire. Both have been corrupted. Only the laity can guide them back to the Truth.
A Church And State
A candlestick and olive tree. A search for two olive trees leads to a prophet Zechariah, a high priest Joshua, a governor Zerubbabel, and the Second Temple. This should lead you to the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire where Church and State worked together. Two witnesses.
