Two Pillars of Fire

In the Bible, “feet” naturally represent position and the ability to move.  This can easily be seen from a simple word-study. Below are some proof texts.

And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will pay for it: I will only, without doing any thing else, go through on my feet.Numbers 20:19.

Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them. 2 Kings 21:8.

In the cloud’s witness of time, we may observe that the present moment is both located and moved by the past and the future. The present moment’s location is defined to be between the past and the future, and the present moment is developed and brought forth by the past and comes from the future thereby continually sliding forward out of the past and from the future.

As time is clearly a symbol of the Godhead, we believe that Jesus, represented by the present moment, is both positioned and moved by the Holy Spirit and the Father. Examples in the Bible can be readily found. Jesus came to earth from the Father, but the Holy Spirit was responsible for Mary’s pregnancy and Jesus’ birth. Thus, Christ moved from heaven to the earth by the Holy Spirit and the Father.  Once Jesus had purged humanity’s sins, he “sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high,” that is, he took a position defined by the Lord’s right hand (the Holy Spirit) and the Majesty on high (the Father).

Therefore, Jesus’ two feet represent the Father and the Holy Spirit.

This explains why the saints must learn at Jesus’ feet (Deuteronomy 33:3, Luke 10:39). No man can come to Jesus unless the Father draw him (John 6:44), and it is the Holy Spirit who guides into all truth, speaking Jesus words and revealing the future (John 16:13).

We learn from Revelation 10:1 that Jesus’ feet are like “pillars of fire.” In the Bible, a pillar is a witness (Genesis 19:26; 31:52). As for what a pillar of fire is, Scripture gives only one explanation – it is the appearance of Divinity keeping watch over and giving light to a human flock by night (Exodus 13:21; 14:24, Nehemiah 9:19).

Jesus is upheld by two blazing Feet, two fiery Witnesses, two Members of the Godhead both watching and enlightening benighted humanity.
