In “The Cloud” we observed a very special pattern in nature which portrays the composition of the Godhead – three individual Members with the central Member, Jesus Christ, emphasized. The pattern is very clearly seen in a water molecule: H-O-H. As a cloud is made up of a great many water molecules, so nature’s collective witness of the Godhead, and especially of Jesus Christ, is made up of numerous examples of the water-molecule pattern.
One example of the pattern, not in nature but in the Bible, is the Sanctuary’s candlestick. Moses was told, “And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold… And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side” (Exodus 25:31-32). On one side (like H) of the central candlestick (like O) were branches, and on the other side (like another H) of it were branches. The Sanctuary’s sevenfold light shined out of the water-molecule pattern.
“Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?” Isaiah 66:1. Creation was made as God’s true Sanctuary. And in Creation, the sevenfold light we know to reflect out of the prism made of water molecules is called the rainbow. Therefore the rainbow, the symbol of God’s covenant (Genesis 9:11-13), is the candlestick of God’s Creation-sanctuary.
