  • T Levis - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 1 year ago
    Exodus 30:7-10, these are specified rules Moses had been given for the Priests to follow. Best to keep the whole of these scriptures together. Deuteronomy 4:2, the offering & relevant starts in previous chapters, Exodus 25, Exodus 26, Exodus 27, Exodus 28, Exodus 29, continuing to Exodus 30, Exodus 31, Exodus 40, also in Deuteronomy, Leviticus,

    Exodus 25:9,

    1Corinthians 5:1,

    Hebrews 8, Hebrews 9, James 1:5,

    Hopefully these are helpful

    What does exodus 30 -v7thru 10 means
  • GiGi - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 1 year ago
    Jack, nice to meet you.

    In John 19:17 it says that Jesus bore His own cross on the way to Golgotha. Simon, at some point along the way, was pressed into helping to carry the cross.

    Perhaps the cross was carried in two pieces, the post and the cross bar and two people were needed to carry both pieces. But in any instance, This passage in Scripture says that Jesus bore His own cross on the way to Golgotha.

    As to Jesus being unable to carry it due to being too weak, if Jesus was only human, this could be true. But, since Jesus was also God, He had all the strength He needed to carry His cross all the way to Golgotha despite how weak He was physically in His humanness from the scourging and the beating.
  • Jack - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 1 year ago
    Gigi You mention about Jesus being beaten pretty bad, he was actually

    Beaten beyond human recognition which is why no one wanted to look at

    Him and when you work the gospels he never carried the wooden cross

    Because he physically could not. Someone of Cyrene was made to carry

    The cross for him.

    Exodus Ch. 30


    Jesus was most likely pretty outwardly a mess after His beatings, carrying the cross along the dusty road, and being bloodied from the crucifixion, crown of thorns, as well as the flogging.

    I think of how Jesus washed the feet of the disciples to make them "clean". It took a work of Jesus to cleanse them. they needed to allow Him to do so and not object. We, too, should be willing and ready for the cleansing work of Jesus through the Holy Spirit in us.

    Next, the recipe for the anointing oil is given. The ingredients are to be compounded, ground or beaten to pulverize them to release the perfume. Jesus was severely beaten before his crucifixion.

    The priests are to use the oil to anoint the tabernacle, the ark, the table of shewbread, the utensils, the altar of incense, the altar of sacrifice and its utensils, and the laver. Jesus blood sprinkled upon us is what anoints us and makes us holy before the Father.

    The priests are to be anointed with the oil also, to consecrate them for service.

    YHWH speaks very straight forwardly, warning the Israelites that this oil is holy and is for Him. It shall not be poured on the flesh of men, nor shall the people make any oil like it in composition. This is a stern warning. The oil appointed by God is for specific purposes and shall not be misused by anyone.

    Next, Moses is given the ingredients for incense: stacte, onycha, galbanum, and frankincense and given to a perfumer to compounded. It is to be beaten into a fine powder. Some of it was to be placed before the Testimony in the tabernacle of meeting. Again, YHWH warns against making this recipe of incense and use it for any other purpose. It is holy incense to the LORD. We should be sure that we bring our prayers to God in a proper way, with reverence, faith, and trust, through the blood and in the name of Jesus. Our prayers arise to the Father as incense. What a beautiful word picture this is as well as an actuality.

    Exodus Ch. 30

    In this chapter is described the making of the altar of incense, the recipe and use of the incense, and the brazen laver where the priests are to wash their hands and feet morning and evening when they minister in the tabernacle.

    The altar of incense was made of acacia wood overlaid with pure gold. (This may signify the humanity (wood) and divinity (pure gold) of Jesus who mediates for us continually before the Father in heaven. This altar is placed just before the veil that separate the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies where the ark was placed and God's presence appeared upon the mercy seat. How fitting that the intercession of Jesus (incense) allows the Father to look upon us with mercy.

    Incense is to be burned morning and evening when the priest tends to the lamps of the 7 branched menorah (lampstand). There is a warning for the priests to not burn any other combination of spices for incense. Only what was proscribed in this chapter, int he proper proportions. Most of the ingredients I am familiar with, but I did need to look up calamus. It is a type of reed that emits a sweet aroma when beaten.

    The chapter also speaks of Moses taking a tax from the Israelites for the expenses of the sanctuary. This was done through a census of each male over the age of 19. Everyone paid the same amount. It was called atonement money. But we know that money cannot buy forgiveness of sins so this must mean that it is for the services of the tabernacle by the priests. Since the lamps, incense, and animals for sacrifice are needed twice each day, these needed to be steadily supplied to the priest for their services before YHWH.

    The bronze laver used for the priest to clean their hands and feet each time before serving in the tabernacle. The purity of the priests was emphasized here. Jesus is the purest priest for us, having never sinned. He did not need to wash his body to be clean before the Father.

    Kaleene i don't say its wrong if you can help someone in the name of Jesus plz have at it....But i always plead the blood on folks that are in jeopardy or in some kind of trouble or have been in an accident....I always plead the blood of JESUS on everybody and anybody simply b/c we are in a New Covenant of his Blood....This is the cup of the New Covenant in my Blood drink ye all of it....And as off as you do this remember me....Everytime i see someone with Covid i plead the blood on that person in Jesus name and i teach my children to do the same.

    ......Behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world....The Blood of the lamb...God so loved the world that gave his only begotten son...etc

    ......I neva plead water i always plead the Blood...Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins...
  • Giannis - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 1 year ago
    My opinion dear Kaleene is that is something that the elders or a pastor or a minister is allowed to do. A common member of a church can pray for healing ( James 5:16), but is not allowed to lay hands on or annoint with oil. ( James 5:14-15). There is an order in the church, everybody has to take his/her own place.

  • Anointing With Oil - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 2 years ago
    One of the most important things to know about anointing oil is that there is no power in the oil itself, but that the power is bestowed by GOD, and its intent is for HIS plans and purposes.

    The oil is merely a natural substance that goes through a process of transformation into a Spiritual tool, using prayer to sanctify, consecrate, set it apart and make it holy unto GOD.

    The Bible teaches us that the SPIRIT steps in during the act of anointing with oil, establishing GOD's objectives in a powerful way. Straight after Samuel anoints David as future king, 1 Samuel 16:13 tells us that "the SPIRIT of the LORD came mightily upon David from that day."JESUS himself describes it as such in Luke 4 verse 18: "The SPIRIT of the LORD is upon ME, because HE has anointed ME to preach the gospel to the poor.

    Anointing with oil is an act of consecration, a setting apart of people, places and things for God's special purposes, making them Holy unto the Lord."Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. ( James 5:14)

    Healing in conjunction with the application of anointing oil was also a directive from JESUS to HIS disciples in Mark 6 and a Spiritual weapon handed down to members of the early churches. While this custom was absent from the church for centuries, we are witnessing its comeback in modern times, with many testimonies of miraculous healing confirming that anointing oil, applied in faith, is symbolic of GOD's ability to deliver us from the claws of sin and disease.

    Anointing as a sign of GOD's blessing was a regular occurrence in Biblical times, and as believers today, we don't need to limit ourselves in terms of when we may or should use anointing oil. When JESUS died for our sins the temple veil tore, granting anyone who does so in HIS NAME unlimited, unrestrained access to GOD. Being in the presence of the ALMIGHTY is what HE longs for and what we need most in this world.
  • KATHY on Exodus 30 - 2 years ago
    is the oil the same that was put on people for healing? verses 22 to 28
  • HOLY ANOINTING OIL - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 2 years ago
    If you go on Google: search: how to make anointing oil (From a Jewish website)

    It's made with spices and perfumes.

    If you use this website SEARCH BOX, type in: holy anointing oil, you'll see what's in it.

    I spent a Passover with a Jewish family. They washed my feet with everybody else. Then used anointing oil. My feet never felt so good. All the Bible recorded hospitality rituals are beautiful.

    Even the food.
  • Terry mitchell on Exodus 30 - 2 years ago
    So, what is the difference of the oil created in exodus and, the olive oil used today to anoint Is it unlawful to make it today for anointing people for healing?
  • Dee on Exodus 30 - 2 years ago
    I love the explanation you gave us for using the oil of GOD'S people. I agree with this. Thank you.
  • Richard in Christ - In Reply on Exodus 30 - 3 years ago
    Hi Drama,

    I very much like this post as I agree.

    In reality why we are not to condemn others who may be against us today or living in deep sin/evil etc. Obviously we are to judge righteously in what is right and wrong. Make known these things though to try and save that person from their sin in where it may lead them. Not to condemn them as only God knows the exact time for every person, that is His, and there is a reason for it that we may not be able to understand. God knows everyone better than we know ourselves.

    As said we are only able to plant or water though it is God that gives the growth. 1 Corinthians 3:7-8.

    In this life it is truly not easy to see other people, even in your own family, that don't seem to listen to our words even though we are only spreading God's Word for their good. Though as two of the fruits of the Holy Spirit are patience and longsuffering as in the end of Galatians.

    Even looking at Paul who condemned and murdered followers of Christ though he turned out to be the one who wrote most of the epistles in the NT. As you stated that some may be with the Lord from their childhood and some may accept the Lord when they are at the end of their life. Connecting to Matthew 20:16.

    As there are some who never accept the Lord and, even more saddening is, people who were with the Lord then reject Him and go back to the world.

    Stay close to the Lord, put all your trust in Him, and pray fervently without ceasing.

    God Bless.
  • Leland jones on Exodus 30 - 3 years ago
    I found my answer to the use of Gods anointing oil. Jesus is the new covenant that took the place of the old covenant and to accept the new covenant would make us one with him becoming one with Jesus allows us to become priests for him and to spread the good news in his name which we become anointed thru him and to anoint others in him for the glorification of God the Father and to be baptized with fire rejecting all that is worldly and sinful and accepting Jesus who is holy and pure. So, we do have the right to use Gods recipe for the anointing oil and to use it for the glorification of Gods will as Jesus requires us to. To accept Jesus and reject sin makes us like Sons of God as he is and heirs to the kingdom of the Father as he is.

    Thank You

  • Leland jones on Exodus 30 - 3 years ago
    Why cant the holy anointing oil recipe be used for public healing and anointing just as Jesus did during his ministries on earth to heal many dieses and elements. Does God forbid us to use this oil on human flesh? Jesus did...Of course he is God the holy Father. I believe I'm reading the Exodus in the spirit and understand it properly and I do not want to be cut off from him however, this anointing oil can cure many elements and dieses if mixed properly and prayerfully, lifting it up to the holy father himself. I have also found thru Strong's concordance that a lot of the Hebrew words of that age were mistranslated in our modern Bibles and actually have a different meaning.

    Thank You

    IS Calamus in Exodus 30:23 actually Cannibus????
  • Michael on Exodus 30 - 5 years ago
    There are beautiful things God wants us to create only for His benefit. There is nothing against smelling good but there was a stipulation for the certain perfume to be used only to anoint the priest. Today we all share a priesthood yet many requirements can still be placed on us for our good. Lord help us give YOU what YOU desire.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus on Exodus 30 - 6 years ago
    End of day 25 of Bible in a Year Reading. God wants His people to understand the meaning behind "religious acts". We learn by "doing". There is a thinking process that is involved in each step that brings us closer to the heart of God.
  • BSP on Exodus 30 - 6 years ago
    Verse 20: Aaron and the priests were to wash themselves because God requires his servants to be clean and holy.
  • Anne on Exodus 30 - 7 years ago
    Thank God for Jesus, our High Priest, who paid our ransom by shedding His blood on the cross for our sins, whereby, we can approach the Throne of Grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.(Heb.4:14-16).
  • George N on Exodus 30 - 8 years ago
    If we look at a better understanding of the age of accountability. Some are called to the accountability earlier. When we come sorry for our sins we will be accountable. Sins not Mom catching you stealing cookies from the jar.
  • Jane on Exodus 30 - 8 years ago
    Verse 37 not 30 where we can wear sweet smelling perfum
  • Jane on Exodus 30 - 8 years ago
    Whoa! God loves beautiful things and sweet smell. See how beautiful he designed Aaron and Son garment in previous chapters. Now he mixed sweet smelling perfum and warns that His particular mixture should not be worn by man. My point is God in verse 30 permits us to wear perfum but some churches preach against it . I love God
  • Dewey J on Exodus 30 - 8 years ago
    Hank Hayden, from Scripture I believe the age of accountability is much sooner. Some places one read that Hebrew boys went through formal rituals at 12-14 years of age to become men. 2 Tim. 3:13 says, "And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scripture, which are able to make thee wise, unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus ". And 1Cor. 13:11 says, "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish thing ". Today we consider 18 to 21 years of age adults. Therefore, the age of accountability must be much earlier than that. God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
  • Jerome Adams on Exodus 30:12 - 10 years ago
    What does this verse have in common with Samuel 24-1. Note that in Exodus 30:12, the punishment for not paying the ransom for the soul was a plague. In David's census, was this ransom required and was it paid? In Davids census, it was his sin, and if so, was the ransom not being paid by the people the justification for the legality of the plague killing 70,000 people instead of just punishing David. (as was the situation of David and Bethsheba and the death of the child)
  • Hank Hayden on Exodus 30 - 13 years ago
    30:14 Lord is that were we become accountable for owr sins twenty and older? Love you all:)
