The Tale of Two Pillars


CONT., page 3




It will not be until the Millennial Reign that Christians alive today will be able to see how bad the last two thousand years of the church really have been.  And it will not be until after the second resurrection that Christians who have died will have such understanding and appreciation as well.  No one can fully understand darkness, until they see light.  No one can understand the full scope of evil, until they see the true good.  Until then, they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, and for this reason they lack understanding (2 Corinthians 10:12).  This is most certainly the contrast of these two pillars—Jachin and Boaz.


Charles Dickens, writer of A Tale of Two Cities, unknowingly explains this contrast between Jachin and Boaz—the two parts of the Body of Christ.  Of course Jachin is the second part of split Christianity, established on the other side of the Millennial Reign, and the full outcome of that work is to be seen.  But on the other hand, through the portal of history and the shame-faced examination of the present, we today know too well what the Boaz period of the Body of Christ certainly is.  In Dickens’ famous opening lines of A Tale of Two Cities, he declared this contrast of good and evil, which is accurately the tale of two pillars:




It was the best of times,

it was the age of wisdom,

it was the epoch of belief,

it was the season of Light,

it was the spring of hope,

we had everything before us,

we were all going direct to Heaven,



it was the worst of times,

it was the age of foolishness,

it was the epoch of incredulity,

it was the season of Darkness,

it was the winter of despair,

we had nothing before us,

we were all going direct the other way


—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.


In one way of another, everything follows this pattern:


Creation vs. God

Female vs. male

Earthly man vs. heavenly man

Evil vs. good

Death vs. life

Yahshua vs. Immanuel

First Remnant vs. second Remnant

Boaz Christianity vs. Jachin Christianity


Today, we watch to see what Yahweh will do towards establishing the good, the heavenly, the second Remnant, even the millennial reign of Immanuel and the building of His temple made of living stones.  May Yahweh be praised!
