Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (epiphany) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13
divinity of the Church as New Creatures and light bearers to the brethren. Its being of beaten work represents the molding of heart and mind into beautiful and useful qualities and attainments in the light-bearers by the Spirit, Word and providences of God, more particularly by the last in their tribulatory aspects. The expression, "unto the base thereof and unto the flowers thereof," as our Pastor explained, types that the Church as light-bearer to the brethren is throughout beautiful in thought and character and fruitful in good works. This is the way God designed the Church to be made ("according unto the pattern which Jehovah had shown Moses"), since all of us who are of Her "are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained [arranged] that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2: 10). With this reflection we may well close our study of the Gospel-Age Moses and Aaron as Truth Receiver and Giver. Certainly its lessons have been deep, clear, refreshing and upbuilding. Certainly they are calculated to increase our love and reverence for God and Christ, and our appreciation of the great privileges that they give us as Truth receivers and dispensers, and that because God is the Source and Jesus is the Agent of these privileges, as this typical study proves. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow … and always in His Son rejoice!"

Wherein did God's manner of giving revelations to Moses differ from that of those given to the high priests and prophets? What did this imply that God and Moses did to one another? What occurred in their conversations? What character has Num. 7: 89? Among other things, in what way did Moses type Christ? How did he type Him in Num. 7: 89?
(70) What does Moses in the most holy type? What does his seeking information there type? What is our Lord's relation to His teachings and works? What is typed by Moses' having access to the most holy for every need in his office? What is typed by God's always answering Moses? What is typed by Moses' always giving the needed responses as due? What kind of other information did Moses sometimes get? What did this type? What kind of things of Christ's acts will be made fully known to the Faithful of the Epiphany? What does this account teach as to the Source of all our Lord's acts and teachings?
(71) Whence came the Voice that spoke to Moses? What does the mercy seat type? What two things prove this? What do the two cherubim type? What two things prove this? What does the word glory, as applied to God, signify? What Scriptures prove this? How do they give this proof? How can we prove from Scripture that this word means a character like God's in us? What conclusion flows from these thoughts as to the meaning of the expression, cherubim of glory? What seals this proof?
(72) What were the four things above the chest of the ark? What was the Shekinah? Where is the word not found? What does it mean? What was its relation to
God? How do the Scriptures prove this? What has it been mistakenly taken to represent? What proves that it represents God? In what sense was it not God? In what sense was it God? What case is somewhat parallel to this? How is wisdom represented in connection with the top of the ark? How are God and His main attributes represented above the chest of the ark? What does that chest type? Out of what did the Voice come? How is this proved? What else types wisdom?
(73) What is the character of the symbolism of Num. 7: 89? What are the chief three things thereby represented as to God? What two things as to our Lord does it type? What does it type as to their relations to the Plan, its arrangements and works? What does it deny of the Father and the Son? What quality in our Lord does it suggest? What degree of honor for Him does it suggest? What effects in us should these considerations produce? What is the chief thought of this study?
(74) What is the antitypical character of Num. 7? What should its study effect in us? For what facts? How should we characterize v. 89? Why? How are Num. 7: 89 and 8: 1-4 related? A part of what should they form? What is the antitypical distinction between them? How is the distinction between the secret and the revealed things brought out in them?
(75) What does Num. 8: 1 imply? What charge was given Aaron in v. 2? Where is this obscure? And where clear? How does the clear rendering read? Why, firstly, was this charge given? What space was in front of the candlestick? Why, secondly, was Aaron to stand behind the lampstand when "ordering it"? Why thirdly? Why fourthly? Why fifthly? What four things in the ordering of the lampstand were exclusively Aaron's charge? What is the character of all these things?
(76) Wherein is the main antitype of Num. 8: 1-3 given What does the candlestick type? How is this proved? Whom does the under-priest type? What distinction harmonizes the seeming contradiction between these two antitypes? What example clarifies this? What do the wicks represent? What is represented by the high priest's trimming the wicks? What is typed by the brighter and
steadier light of the trimmed lamps? What results in the antitype?
(77) What was the second high-priestly activity in ordering the lampstand? What does the oil in this type represent? How is this proved? What two things does this imply?

What is a brief summary of the antitype of the Zech. passage? Of the Num. passage?
(78) What was the third feature in ordering the lampstand? Whose exclusive function was this? What four activities of our Lord toward the light-bearers does this type? How does He accomplish them? In connection with what does He do these things?
(79) What was the fourth exclusive high-priestly function toward the lampstand? What proves this? What is typed by Aaron's lighting the lampstand? What is typed by this as an exclusive high-priestly function? What two evils does this condemn? What has resulted from its disregard? What two things are typed by the light being made to shine before the lampstand? How does the priest type the second of these things? What is typed by the priest's first sight in the Holy? What is typed by his seeing the light coming from the lampstand?
(80) What is typed by the high priest's not lighting the lampstand from its front? What would have been typed by his shadow, had he stood there? What is typed by his standing behind it when lighting the lampstand? What does his being relatively in the semi-shadow type? What further was typed by this position?
(81) What other high-priestly type is related to our subject? What do the Urim and Thummim type? What question has hitherto been unanswered? What Scriptures refer to them? What considerations seem to associate
them with the precious stones in the breastplate and their lights? What seemingly were they? How were the answers yes and no perhaps given?
(82) While their identity is not demonstrable, what is demonstrable of their antitypes? How do we prove the nature of their antitypes? What are they? How many graces answer to the Thummim? How are they related to God's four great attributes? How is this typed? How did the typical high priest recognize God's response by the Urim and Thummim? What does this type? What does this type reveal? Through whom does our Lord usually give God's answers to our inquiries? What three effects should these considerations work in us?
(83) What does v. 4 give? What does the candlestick's gold type? Its being beaten work? The expression, "Unto the base thereof and unto the flowers"? For what did God create the Church as the antitypical lampstand? What is the character of this study? What are its intended effects? Why? To what should this lead us?
In the wondrous breastplate golden,
Safely on His bosom holden,
See the jewels from the mine!
Amethyst and onyx wearing
Mystic marks, and each one bearing
Traces of the hand Divine.
Sapphires 'mid the gorgeous cluster
Sparkle with celestial luster,
Like the crystal dome above;
Ruby rare and topaz blending
In that glory never-ending,
Safe upon the breast of love.
Emerald and beryl throwing
Chastened hues, the fairer growing,
As the jasper blends the rays;
Chrysoprase, like king's attire,
Glowing like a star of fire,
Or a soul that loves to praise.
Who the love and pain can measure,
Ere revealed this hidden treasure,
One by one in dazzling light?
On His breast our High Priest wears them,
On His shoulder, see, He bears them,
Ever in our Father's sight.
