Small Jerusalem Grafted-In Menorah. Size 3 inches
"Grafted In" - Phrase taken from – Romans 11:13, 17, 18, NASB - "But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry… But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.”
The Apostle Paul is writing to the gentiles and saying that the ‘wild olive branch’ is grafted into the ‘cultivated olive tree’. The plain sense of the text is as follows:
Through the ministry of the Messiah Yeshua, Gentile believers (wild olives) are covenant–bound (grafted in) to Isra'el (Father Abraham’s Olive Tree). Therefore Gentile believers are fellow citizens and full-participants with the Commonwealth of Isra'el (Eph. 2) and are granted the divine privilege of following the entire Torah.
ABOUT THE SEVEN BRANCHED “MENORAH” (CANDELABRA)
The “menorah” that was the centerpiece of the Tabernacle in the wilderness and of the first and second Temples in Jerusalem had seven branches. Specifications and instructions for the making of the Temple menorah are recorded in Exodus 25:31-40. The golden candlestick had a bowl on the end of each branch containing pure oil for the light. Twenty-two almond blossoms decorated the whole piece which was hammered out of one talent of pure gold equivalent to 34 Kg. (75 pounds)! The Menorah was the only light that lit up the Tabernacle and the temple as there were no windows. The seven lamps filled with oil are a witness to perfect light. This fullness of light is described in the prophecy concerning the Messiah of Israel in Isaiah 11:2: "And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord."
Please note: There are many Different types of Menorahs and many different types of Candles. Unfortunately we can not carry all of them. However, there are techniques that can help you fit the two.
1. If the diameter of the candle is a bit larger then the Manorah's candle holder then you may try whittling a bit off the base of the candle so it will fit. Please keep in mind that this tip will not work if the candles are a significant amount larger than the candle holder.
2. If the candle is too small then try heating the base of the candle using a small flame from a “Lighter” or another candle and when the base begins to melt insert it to the menorahs candle holder and press lightly for a few seconds until it sticks.
