Welcome

Dave Roth, AuthorWelcome! This website is for you who are seeking to learn more about God's word. The reconstruction of it has gone much slower than I had expected, mostly because of my limited time. We are currently studying the book of Leviticus (See below), which has more direct quotes from the LORD than any other book in the Bible. I am also restoring the studies on Isaiah.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

Thank you for visiting this site and may God bless you and use you in mighty ways for your interest in learning and distributing His Holy Word. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

Today's Bible Study

Let Your Light Shine

Leviticus 24:1-4

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually. 3 Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations. 4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the LORD continually.


The candlestick that held the seven lamps and stood in the holy place was a figure of Christ and His church (See Revelation 1:20). Christ was represented by the stem, the churches by the seven lamps, and the Holy Spirit by the oil.

The oil that was used to fuel the lamps was to be supplied by each Israelite, because each had an interest in the lampstand. This oil was required to be of the purest olive oil. It was the first oil squeezed from the olives, beaten out by a mortar but not ground, lest it would have particles floating in it. The purity of the oil represented the purity of the Holy Spirit who is the indwelling life and light of the churches.

Andrew Bonar wrote, "All light was from the pure oil; all grace is from the Spirit; and Christ pours the Spirit into His own, as the priest poured oil into the lamps, 'from morning to evening continually.' Without oil the wick of the lamp would be extinguished in noisome fumes after a short blaze; without the Holy Spirit, the Church, and every member of the Church, would sink into darkness like that of the world around them, and their profession would only leave behind most offensive remembrances. Thus, then, is Jesus giving out the Holy Spirit to His churches."     Read More
