This is a type of the Holy Spirit which lights the word.
Lamp stand, shewbread, only types of Him,
into whose presence, I must now come.
Not trusting the ritual of the stand and bread,
but looking unto Him in that Secret Place.
Putting aside all types and shadows,
facsimiles and caricatures of Him.
What my mind thinks will not suffice.
My eye must behold Him in the Secret Place.
Then I will know who He really is.
Not just what men would say,
or types and shadows show.
Then will I learn to be
content in Him,
only in Him.

Heb. 8:5 “who serve as a copy and shadow of the heavenly things,”
Heb. 9:11 “But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; 12 and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He centered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” NASB
