Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The golden altar was one of the three pieces of furniture in the Holy Place. It was situated nearest the veil that hung just in front of the Mercy Seat in the Most Holy Place. The golden altar, made of shittim wood and overlaid with gold, signified the prayers of the saints “covered and united with Divinity.” It represents the key that connects us to God. It was foursquare, signifying the importance of “coming correct” to God, says Pastor Flemons. Like the brazen altar in the courtyard, the altar of incense was not only foursquare but also had four horns, which pointed to Christ and signified “strength, power, victory, and honor.” It was crowned with a golden crown, representing not only the power but the reward that comes to the petitioner who continues “instant in prayer” (Romans 12:12). As the brazen altar points to Christ’s sacrifice on earth for us, the golden altar points to Christ’s intercession for us in Heaven.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that cherries are power-packed with nutrients that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Cherries protect against diabetes, because of their low-glycemic content. Cherries promote healthy sleep, because of their melatonin content. In fact, according to the health.com article that inspired today’s talk, “One study in men and women with insomnia found that . . .eight ounces of tart cherry juice in the morning and again one to two hours before bed increased sleep time by an hour and 24 minutes.” Cherries have also been found to provide arthritis relief, lower the risk of gout attacks, lower total cholesterol levels, and help reduce post-exercise pain, by protecting against cellular wear and tear from exercise and supporting muscle recovery. (For further details, please listen to the recording and read the health.com article that formed the basis of today’s talk.)
