Worship: Setting Up the Tabernacle, Placing the Furniture / Wellness: 10 Benefits of Ginger

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  All articles of the tabernacle had been completed, presented to Moses in a grand procession, inspected, and blessed. Next the tabernacle had to be set up and the furniture placed within.

Setting Up the Tabernacle. ‘On the first day of the first month’ Ex. 40:2,17, Moses, following the explicit directions of the Lord, set up the tabernacle. First, the boards were raised up, set in their sockets, the bars put in them, and the pillars for the veil and the door erected. Thus the walls, securely fastened to the two corner boards, were “held firm.” PP 347. Next the four coverings were spread above this framework, Ex. 40:18,19; first, the richly embroidered royal covering, then the white goats’ hair covering, the taches of both these coverings being directly above the second veil. Next above these were the red ram’s skins and the brown badger skin coverings.

“Placing the Furniture. When the structure was ready for the furniture, Moses reverently put the tables of the testimony into the ark – the same tables that God had given him when he was in the mount; the staves, which were never to be removed, he placed in their rings, covered it with the mercy seat, and it was brought into the tabernacle. Then the second, or inner veil, was hung on its four golden pillars. It was hung “under the taches” which divided “between the holy place and the most holy.” Ex. 26:33. Following this, he set the golden table on the north side of the holy place, and arranged the bread and the dishes in order upon it. On the south side, ‘without the veil of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation’ Lev. 24:3, he put the candlestick, and supplied the lamps with oil. Ex. 40:25. Before the inner veil he placed the golden altar, and put incense upon it, v. 27. Then the door – the outer veil – was hung on its five pillars, thus completing the furnishing of the sanctuary proper. Ex. 40:22-28.

“In the center of the court before the sanctuary, was placed the brazen altar, and between the altar and the door of the tabernacle, the laver and his foot. Into the laver water was poured, and Moses, Aaron, and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat. Lastly, the brazen court pillars were raised up, on which were hung the court hangings and the gate. ‘So Moses finished the work,’ and it was done ‘as the Lord had commanded.’ Ex. 40:29-33.”

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed ten benefits of ginger as published in a honey coach article on coach.nine.com.au. The article lists the Top Ten surprising benefits of ginger. With each benefit, the article suggests a way to incorporate ginger into your diet.

The benefits listed are these: 1. It’s an anti-inflammatory. 2. It relieves muscle pain. 3. It settles the stomach. 4. It can help regulate blood sugar. 5. It helps prevent heart disease. 6. It reduces the risk of diabetes. At this point, the article advises taking it with salmon. In place of salmon, use chia seeds, says Pastor Flemons. 7. It reduces cancer risks. 8. It eases menstrual pain. 9. It fights infection. Rather than add a teaspoon of ginger to chicken soup, as advised in the article, add it to vegetable soup, says Pastor Flemons. 10. It improves brain function.
