The Trimming of The Lamps

The Trimming of The Lamps

If You would allow me a moment of your time let me start with this Expose’ with a question.

Do any of you remember the old Oil Lamps that were used a few generations back?

Let’s take a closer look…

They are a few basic parts that makes a Oil Lamp work. Of course there is the Vessel/Basin of the Lamp. That is what holds the Oil that you will need in it to Burn with Fire. Also, you must have a Wick that is Submerged or put into the Vessel where the Oil is and have one end of the Wick at the top of the Vessel. There is a mechanism at the top of the Vessel that holds part of the Wick out from the Oil so the Oil is Wicked up to the Top of the Vessel. Then to cap it off you have the Chimney that is placed over the Wick and on top of the Vessel to protect the Flame or Fire and keep from going out, and there you have it a Oil Lamp.

Now the next question is how do we get it to work and when is it used? Well that’s pretty simple. To get the Lamp to burning you removed the Chimney and you Light Up that top part of the Wick then adjust the Wick to get the Flame or Fire where you need it. Then replace the Chimney to keep the Flame or Fire from going out. Then you use your Oil Lamp when there is Darkness around and you need to see where you are going.

Now lets say we have used our Lamps in the pervious Darkness that we were in. It worked fine. We were able to see in the Darkness that we walked in the night before.

Now we discover! The Day is past and It’s Dark again. What do we do? Yes we Fire Up Our Lamps so we can see clearly where we are going. So you removed the Chimney and you set Fire to the Wick and you place the Chimney back just like you did in the Previous Darkness and all of a sudden you notice that part of the Wick you set Fire to is “Smoking Up The Chimney” and you are not getting any Light to produce from your Lamp.

Now why is that? You are using the same type of Vessel, You have the same type of Oil and you even have the same type of Chimney and you did the same thing that you did in the previous Darkness and it’s just not working. What do we need to do to get the Light to Shine?

What have we done wrong here to cause the Chimney to Smoke up and not give any Light?

It’s simple my Friends. When you are in a New Season of Darkness and needing Light badly to see what we must do once we have Smoked Up the Chimney we have to get that Chimney Clean from the Inside where all that Smoke messed it up.

Once you have a Clean Chimney you Must elevate or raise that Wick up some where you can CUT completely off that part that you had burned in the Darkness the night before.

Once you Cut The Wick then you can set Fire to it and replace the Clean Chimney back on top of the Vessel and you will get Light to Walk in for Todays Darkness.

Friends Your Brother said all of that to say this. We are living in a time where there is Gross Darkness across the land. We are trying to see in this Darkness and make since of it all by Walking in Yesterdays Light that our Parents and Grandparents Walked in. The Light that our Elders Walked in back in their day was for them to see in the Darkness they were in.

TODAY is a New Day it is a New Season and a Gross Darkness that is around and about us. We will Not be able to see Clearly if we are trying Walk in the Light that they walked in the past, all that can do is Smoke Up Your Chimney.

WE HAVE to CUT that Religious Past in what the Generations Walked in before us. What we are trying to do is see through this darkness but the Light that was given them in the past, and all we are doing is Smoking Up the Chimney and we are not going anywhere if we can’t see ahead.

So I encourage you to Clean up your Chimney and Cut the past. The part of the Wick that we walked in yesteryear.

We have been trying to get to the Bridegroom/MessiYah with a Smoked Up Chimney. Cut that Wick in the Light that our ancestors walked. That Light was for them in their day. It’s not going to work for us today. And not only Clean up the Chimney but you have to Cut the Past religious views. Cut yesterdays Revival Cut that what was Walked in in Yesterday. Yesterday was for Them and not for us today. We needing a Fresh ResTORAHation for Today.

We need a Fresh and Renewed Light for the Darkness we are in today. WE can’t make it on grandpas and grandmas religious experience. What they Saw brought us to this point in time. Now it’s time to get Fired Up and let Our Light Shine in todays Darkness and the only way is to Cut the Past lose.

Now if you notice you do not disregard the Vessel, You do not disregard the Oil… It’s the same Oil. You do not disregard the Wick…. You just have to Cut the part of the Wick that was burnt in Yesterdays Darkness so we can Light Up Our Lamps with Clean Chimneys so we can See Our Way to the Bridegroom.

Notice in the Parable, told by Our MessiYah , of the Ten Virgins. What was the very First thing they Did when they heard the Shout or Message, at the Midnight Hour, that the “Bridegroom” is coming? To go out and Meet Him…. The VERY FIRST THING THEY DID WAS “Trimmed Their Lamps” They Cut the Wick. Are you getting this?

Children, if you do not Cut the Past in what you are walking in all you will get is more Darkness and will not be able to see what’s going on around us in these Dark Days and make it to your Bridegroom YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH.

Please Clean Up the Chimney and Cut that Wick and Let your Light Shine.

If you want to “Come Out of Her” (Babylon) AND “Come Out to Meet Him”, The MessiYaH, it’s gonna take a Cuttin’ of the Religious Past we’ve been walking in. We can’t make it on what our parents and grandparents saw and walked in.

Cut it loose friends and Receive a Fresh Revelation of Who He Is. A Fresh Anointing and a Fresh Light is what is needed in these Dark Days.


THEN shall the Kingdom of YAHUAH be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go ye out to meet him.

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.


My son, guard your father’s commandment, and forsake not the Torah of your mother:

Bind them continually upon your heart, and tie them about your neck.

When you go, it shall lead you; when you sleep, it shall guard you; and when you awake, it shall talk with you.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the Torah is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:


ARISE, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of YAHUAH is risen upon you.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but YAHUAH shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you.

And the other people shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

Lift up your eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to you: your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.

Then you shall see, and flow together, and your heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned back unto you, the forces of the other people shall come unto you.


For the commandment is a lamp; and the Torah is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

      1. May Yah bless and keep you brother! I haven’t got to go through all of your work yet, but so far what I’ve seen is on point brother. I wish the Father would open my husbands eyes. Please pray for him if you would. I started my blog with a friend and then they ran out on me so I’m not sure what I need to post here. I actually do more YouTube videos than the blogging right now while I can. But I absolutely love the work you are doing here.
