The chapters of this book are a series of messages written and published in booklet form in earlier days of this writing ministry. When I was first introduced to the truths of the typology of the Old Testament, many years ago, it opened to me a whole new realm of revelation and study. And most especially the typical truths of the Tabernacle in the wilderness thrilled my heart, and stirred me to hunger for greater knowledge of His Word. Many end-time truths are hidden in the types and shadows of His precious Word. No one wants to go back and live in the time of the children of Israel as they wandered through the wilderness. It was a time of shadows, typing the realities which we now have. But if, from those shadows, we can throw more light on the truths of the New Testament, it will be a profitable study. Which is why we call this collection of messages: “Light out of Shadows”. I would remind those who do not take much stock in Old Testament types, that the Apostle Paul said: “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets.” He was willing to base his reason for worshipping Jesus Christ on what he had read in the Old Testament. Again he said: “Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come.” So the Law of Moses actually was speaking of things to come, things concerning Jesus Christ. And all things that Paul preached concerning Jesus Christ, being saved by faith, the gifts of the Spirit, Sonship, the Body of Christ, the second coming of Christ, and his other teachings, all were found in the Old Testament scriptures. “Saying none other things…” (Acts 26:22) I know of no one who has received or taught all the typical truths found in the Tabernacle, the Temple, and the laws of Moses. I do not pretend that this small book begins to exhaust the glories of Christ found in the Old Testament. It is only an introduction, hoping to stir the reader to greater study of the Word. And now, may God bless you as you open this book, and may He give you the Spirit of revelation and wisdom in the knowledge of Him. In Him ~ Bro. Bill B.

Mysteries Revealed In Shadows (a poem by Danny Busey 9.19.66) In riddled rhyme now is set to verse, God’s work in time. The coming of the Spirit, the dawning of the New Day. The dwelling place of God, in which is hid His way. Once within a tent, did ‘hidden truth’ lodge, The Brazen Altar first, which no one could dodge. So a Living Altar too, did the Spirit build, With stones in which the selfish voice was stilled. The Altar principle is now at work, Sharing has become a joy which none dare shirk. But the Living Spirit moves on through men who are broken, Under Divine inspiration the life-giving Word must be spoken. The Laver with its cleansing water is thus brought in, And the Voice of God is heard above the earthly din. Ushered in is another realm of the activities of God. Up from Rome’s darkness we steadily plod. The Lamp of Truth with its seven-fold light Begins in the Fourteenth Century to dispel the night. So the Golden Candlestick now stands in its place, Each branch flaming with light, revealing the Glory of His Grace. The Table of Shewbread, with its orderly rows; Tis a place of feeding, where each enlightened one goes. The fine flour of His Pure Word is the only food That can sustain the one whose mind is renewed. Twelve loaves were laid… “Six on a row.” For ‘governmental training’ each must know. Atop the two rows, pure frankincense is placed as a crown, Thus prophetic revelations do the anointed ones expound. The Altar of Incense now occupies a prime place, For before the Veil, and into it, is its face. Worship in Spirit and in Truth is the thought implied; Congregations waiting before Him, without human will to guide. Pure worship unto Him must in these days ascend; Worship without selfish pretense, which doth offend. As the clouds of incense did rise without form, So must our praise reach Him, out of humble hearts born. May we learn this lesson that is so vital, For without worship in Spirit we sit as men idle. So arise ye ones of His election into this place, For here and here alone do we gaze into His face. Tis the place that we are changed from glory to glory; And then Redemption is no longer just a story. The Glory of His Matchless Grace, Can now in every detail of life be traced. Complete Redemption and God’s Glory fully revealed; All is now seen that has from eternity been concealed. Creation is delivered from corruption’s bondage; Finding fulfillment in the end of this present age. The hope and traveil of all the ages; The Sons of God delivered from mortality’s cages. Thus the Ark of His Presence fills our view; God’s plan perfected and ready for Eternity’s debut.
