Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem





The Ark of the Covenant, The Tabernacle, and The Temple



Exodus 30

Anointing Oil

22 Then the Lord said to Moses, 23 “Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels[d] of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels[e] of fragrant calamus, 24 500 shekels of cassia—all according to the sanctuary shekel—and a hin[f] of olive oil. 25 Make these into a sacred anointing oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the sacred anointing oil. 26 Then use it to anoint the tent of meeting, the ark of the covenant law, 27 the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense, 28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand. 29 You shall consecrate them so they will be most holy, and whatever touches them will be holy.

30 “Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests. 31 Say to the Israelites, ‘This is to be my sacred anointing oil for the generations to come. 32 Do not pour it on anyone else’s body and do not make any other oil using the same formula. It is sacred, and you are to consider it sacred. 33 Whoever makes perfume like it and puts it on anyone other than a priest must be cut off from their people.’”

Incense

34 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts, 35 and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred. 36 Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you. 37 Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the Lord. 38 Whoever makes incense like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from their people.”

Footnotes:

1. 2. Exodus 30:23 That is, about 12 1/2 pounds or about 5.8 kilograms; also in verse 24
3. Exodus 30:23 That is, about 6 1/4 pounds or about 2.9 kilograms
4. Exodus 30:24 That is, probably about 1 gallon or about 3.8 liters

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem





Bless the LORD, Oh My Soul,
And let All That is Within Me Bless His Most Holy Name!
Abba, Father,
We Praise and Worship You,
You Alone Are Worthy of Worship and Praise,
For You Alone Are The One True God,
As the Nations Rage So Furiously Against You,
And Against Your People,
We Know That You Are Our Shelter,
Our Strength and our Song,
Our Refuge in Times of Trouble,
Our Rock and Our Redeemer!

We Pray For the Leaders of Our Own Beloved USA
May They Receive Wisdom from You
to do the Right Thing.

We Pray For The Swift and Sure Coming of Messiah,
Blessed Be He,
To Establish His Kingdom,
and Make All Things Right.

Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Those of you who know me will recognize this story, as I shared it on FR four years ago when it happened. I am NOT making this up.

My best friend Lil, had retired from the Mission Field, which took her to many countries, and she and I saved up and went to Hawaii together. While both of us were too old and fat to go ziplining or surfing, we DID decide to go up together in an open (doors off) helicopter over the erupting volcano. Strapped into the back seat, wind whipping around, we were thoroughly enjoying ourselves, when my friend had a massive seizure and died in my arms. I tried to do CPR, but we were strapped in and the doors were open on each side. It was really BAD. I contacted the pilot through my headset and we turned around and went back to Hilo, where the Hospital there put her on life support and airlifted her to Honolulu.

Meanwhile, I was stuck on the Big Island and had to do all the "business". As I sorted out her belongings, there was a little wrapped present addressed to me from a gift shop in Jerusalem. I opened it up...it was a tiny jar of "Temple Incense" made from the recipe in Exodus 30. I still have it, of course, but I have never ground any of it up or burned it. I keep it in memory of a great lady.

The anointing oil and incense recipes are restricted to use in the worship or the One True God. They were not to be used as perfume, air freshener, medicine, or skin care. There are plenty of other mixtures for all of those other purposes. Why would The One True God be concerned about us using these recipes for other purposes? Once again, this is to show the HOLINESS and SEPARATENESS of God. It is a gulf that nobody can bridge on their own.

Come and pray For the Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.

God Bless America!

Christians never say goodbye and so it is with you and your friend Lil.

Regarding the Holy fragrance. When I first read that scripture some time ago, I thought to myself, I hope I haven’t owned any unknowingly.

From “Stand for Israel”;

Our Father in Heaven, Protector and Redeemer of Israel, bless the State of Israel, the first flowering of our redemption. Shield it beneath the wings of Your love and spread over it Your canopy of peace. Send Your light and truth to its leaders, officers, and counselors, and direct them with Your good counsel.

Strengthen the defenders of our Holy Land; O God, grant them salvation and crown them with victory. Establish peace in the land and everlasting joy for its inhabitants.

Remember our brethren, the whole house of Israel, in all the lands of their dispersion. Speedily bring them upright to Zion, Your city, to Jerusalem, Your name’s dwelling-place, as it is written in the Torah of Your servant Moses: “Even if your outcasts are dispersed to the uttermost parts of the heavens, from there HASHEM your God will gather you and take you in. HASHEM your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it, and He shall make you more prosperous and numerous than your forefathers.

Unite our hearts to love and revere Your Name, and to observe all the precepts of Your Torah. Speedily send us Your righteous messiah of the house of David to redeem those who long for Your salvation.

Shine forth Your glorious majesty over all the inhabitants of Your world; let every creature that breathes proclaim: “HASHEM, God of Israel, is King; His dominion rules over all.” Amen. Selah.

Sorry to learn of the turn of events during your holiday. However, how blessed was Lil to have lived a life, serving the Lord, then to celebrate with you during her last stop on the way HOME.
We just never know how God will arrange things.

Amen...you are so right about that. I know Lil is in Heaven, and honored to have been the one holding her when she passed over..

She was a real Christian Hero to me (((especially when bringing Bibles into places they were not allowed...sometimes burkas can be very useful, if you catch my drift)))

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant
Israeli Nation!



_ OREOVER the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh
five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so
much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet
calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,
And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:

And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense,

And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.

And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.

And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.

Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you.

Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:

And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:

And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.

Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.

_________________________________________Exodus 30:22-38 (KJV)
