Testimonies of healing inspire other healings

Let's Add to the Bouquet

Among Moses' instructions for the furnishing of the tabernacle— that center of the Israelites' worship of the one God—were directions for the preparation of a special perfume.

Moses was to take certain sweet spices with pure frankincense and make a perfume "pure and holy. . . and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I [God] will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy." He was also instructed, "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." Ex. 30:35-37;

That this perfume was not to be used by the Israelites themselves but was to be brought into "the tabernacle of the congregation" might bring to mind the purpose of the Wednesday testimony meetings in Christian Science churches, those meetings in which Mrs. Eddy has made special provision for the public expression of gratitude for Christian Science healing.
