Verses:

Rev. 3:12 “He who overcomes, him I will make a pillar in the temple of My God….”

 

Excerpts:

The burden and responsibility borne by the pillars in the family, in the church, and in the ministry is always in a complicated and intermixed situation. We may often like to straighten out these situations, but we cannot do it. If you attempt to make one matter clear, the situation will become even more unclear. The more you try to make it understandable, the more it will be misunderstood.

 

In order to bear the responsibility in this complicated situation, we must live by faith in God. First Kings 7:19 says, “And the capitals that were at the top of the pillars in the portico were of lily work.”…The lily signifies a life of faith in God. Firstly, we must condemn ourselves, realizing that we are fallen, incapable, unqualified, and that we are nothing. Then we must live by faith in God. We must be existing by what God is to us, not by what we are. It is not I but Christ who lives in me—this is the lily. It is not I who bear the responsibility—it is He who bears it.

 

Every pillar must bear the testimony of living by faith to express the riches of Christ through the process of resurrection under the crossing out of the checker work and the restriction of the chain work. The bronze in the two pillars in front of the temple indicates that we are under the death-judgment, which brings us into the process of resurrection. This process of resurrection brings us through the network and the chain work to grow the lily and to bear the pomegranates for a testimony. This is the way for the pillar to bear the responsibility. (Life-study of Genesis, msg. 84)
