 The Candlestick  Exodus 26:33… This is the first mention of the Holy Place in Scripture. o Before we study the furniture of the Holy Place we have to get the mind of God concerning the Holy Place. o Every pieces of furniture in this Holy Place is Holy by reason of it's position. o Is anything in the Outer Court any less Holy than what's behind the two veils?

Lake City Christian Fellowship 1 Principles Class: Tabernacle of Moses - #20 “The Table of Shewbread” Pastor Justin Phillips May 2, 2011 st

 Exodus 25:23-30… The Table of Shewbread was the second piece of furniture in the Most Holy and it was placed on the north side of the Most Holy opposite the Candlestick.  A table has many purposes. One is to set things on it for the purpose of display. o This table was for displaying stacks of bread. o There were two stacks with six pieces of bread in each stack. o One stack represents the head and the other represents the body. o What's true of the Head the same is true of the Body.  Psalms 34:8… Before people can taste and see that the Lord is good, there has to be a table for the Father to place himself on. o Colossians 2:9… Jesus was a table that all the God head bodily was placed in. o 1 Kings 4:27… There was no lack on the Kings table. o 2 Samuel 9:7-13… The lame and outcast comes to the table of the Lord. o Mark 7:24-28… A crumb from the masters table can change a world. o Genesis 22:9… The bread on this table was in order.  Romans 8:28… This verse should make more sense to us now as we understand the word Purpose. o Purpose- SC#4286 … means a setting forth shewbread. o When we feed on what's true of Him is true of us; then all things do work together for the good.  Joshua 9:1-14… The bread of the Lord should never get dry and moldy but it should remain fresh as it was when first brought out of the oven.  1 Corinthians 10:17… We are one Bread!  Judges 7:12-14… It's no longer a dream. Its reality now it's all downhill.

Lake City Christian Fellowship 1 Principles Class: Tabernacle of Moses - #21 “The Golden Altar of Incense” Pastor Justin Phillips May 9, 2011 st

 Exodus 30:1-10… First thing you must notice about the Golden Altar of Incense is its position.  There were 2 Altars in the Tabernacle of Moses. One was outside the other was inside. o The Brazen Altar was outside. It was made out of wood and brass. It was a place of death. o The Golden Altar of Incense was inside. It was made out of wood and gold. It was a place of life.  Description of the Golden Altar of Incense. o It was the piece of furniture nearest to the Ark. o It was foursquare just like the Brazen Altar in the outer court.

The Brazen Altar… Exodus 27:1  The Golden Altar of Incense… Exodus 30:2  The Breastplate of the High Priest… Exodus 39:9  The city lieth foursquare… Revelation 21:16 o The Altar had a Crown around it to protect the coals. o The Altar had two staves and two rings in it.

This altar was used exclusively for burning incense. Which speaks of Praise and Prayer. There could be no strange incense. o Prayer and Praise was like incense in the nostrils of God.

The 7 Hebrew Words for Praise 1. YADAH - ‫ادي‬ Definition: Yadah is a verb with a root meaning, "the extended hand, to throw out the hand, therefore to worship with extended hand." According to the Lexicon, the opposite meaning is, "to bemoan, the wringing of hands." Example: Psalm 63:4... "Thus I will bless Thee while I live, I will (YADAH) lift up my hands in Thy name" Other References: Psalms 134:2, Ps 141:2; II Chronicles 20:19-21 2. TOWDAH - ‫ادوت‬ Definition: Towdah comes from the same principal root word as Yadah but is used more specifically. Towdah literally means, "an extension of the hand in adoration, avowal, or acceptance." By way of application, it is apparent in the Psalms and elsewhere that it is used for thanking God for "things not yet received" as well as things already at hand. Example: Psalm 50:14... "Offer unto God praise (TOWDAH) and pay thy vows unto the Most High" "What I want from you is your true thanks. I want your promises fulfilled." [Tay] Other References: II Chronicles 29:31; Jeremiah 30:19; Ps 26:7 3. HALAL - ‫لالح‬ Definition: Halal is a primary Hebrew word for praise. Our word "hallelujah" comes from this base. It means, "to be clear, to shine, to boast, show, to rave, celebrate, to be clamorously foolish." Example: Psalm 113:1... "Praise (HALAL) ye the Lord, Praise (HALAL) O ye servants of the Lord, praise (HALAL) the name of the Lord." Other References: Psalms 104, 105, 106 4. SHABACH - ‫خابش‬ Definition: Shabach means, "to address in a loud tone, to commend, to triumph, to exclaim, glory, shout." Example: Psalm 145:4... "One generation shall praise (SHABACH) thy works to another and declare Thy mighty acts." Other References: Psalms 63:1, 3, 4; Psalms 117:1; Psalms 35:27; Is 12:6; Psalms 106:47 5. BARAK - ‫كارب‬ Definition: Barak means, "to kneel down, to bless God as an act of adoration." When used in the scripture it implies, "expecting to receive a blessing from the Lord." Example: Psalm 95:6... "O come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel (BARAK) before the Lord our maker.""Come let us throw ourselves at His feet in homage." [NEB] "Let us bend thy knee in the presence of Jehovah our Creator." [Spurrel] Other References: I Chronicles 29:20; Nehemiah 9:5

1


6. ZAMAR - ‫رامذ‬ Definition: Zamar means, "to touch the strings" and is used concordantly with instrumental worship. Psalm 150 is a perfect example of this kind of praise. David said, "Awake my glory; awake harp and lyre, I will awaken the dawn! I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises (ZAMAR) to Thee among the nations." Example: Psalm 21:13... "Be Thou exalted O Lord, in Thine own strength, so will we sing and praise (ZAMAR) Thy power.""We sing and strike the harp to Thy power" [DeWitt]"With song and with string we will sound forth Thy power" [RHM] Other References: Psalms 66:2, 4; Isaiah 12:5 7. TEHILLAH - ‫اليحت‬ Definition: Tehillah simply means, "to sing, to laud." "God is enthroned on the praises (TEHILLAH) of Israel" (Psalms 22:3). This is the kind of praise that God dwells in. Any form of singing can be praise, but one of the higher forms was the Dorean mode which was neither western major nor oriental minor. It was sort of chanting whereby the words of HALAL were melodiously chanted. This is the expression of praise the Psalmist said God inhabited. Examples: Psalm 33:1... "Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous; for praise (TEHILLAH) is comely for the upright."Psalm 34:1 -- "...His praise (TEHILLAH) shall continually be in my mouth." Other References: I Chronicles 16:35; Isaiah 42:10, 12; II Chronicles 20:22

Exodus 25:10-22… The description of the ark given to Moses. o Dimensions 2 -1/2 +2 -1/2 +1 -1/2 +1 -1/2= 8 o The Mercy of God has given us a new beginning. o The Mercy Seat was the same height as the grated network in the Brazen Altar. (Several thoughts here) Sitting in the Mercy Seat looking back at the Brazen Altar you was eye level with the sacrifice. The sacrifice is what brought everything to the same level.

Leviticus 16:1-17… These Scriptures tells you about the Day of Atonement. o

It was the only time in the year anyone went behind the veil.

There was two times in that day the High Priest went behind the veil.

o

The first time he went he went for himself and his family. He had to sprinkle incense upon the golden altar to create a cloud.

o

Second time he went for the nation of Israel and he didn't have to create a cloud this time.

Leviticus 16:17… Nobody did anything on this day except the High Priest.

Leviticus 16:4… First thing he did was he stripped himself of the golden garments and wore the linen garments.

The High Priest is responsible for everything to the fires, lamps, and even the slaughtering of the animals.

Numbers 29:7-11… Count the animals that he sacrificed on the Day of Atonement.

Exodus 29:38-39… He was responsible for killing the two lamb’s everyday also.
