The Brain and Nervous System
HEB 9:3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;
4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.
We are now entering the third court or the realm of the higher brain which is called the cerebrum. This is the reasoning brain which none of the animals have - only man has it. This brain has twelve paired cranial nerves which constitute our twenty four elders around the throne. It oversees the 31 paired peripheral nerves that are within the spinal cord [reptilian system] and transmits the wants and wishes of the body. The holiest place has cherubims and an ark. Within the ark is the almond rod of Levi. What do the cherubim represent?

The brain is cradled within the cranium (or skull) and touches the inner part of the cranium, but is not attached to it. It consists of two hemispheres which touch in the middle and are joined by the corpus callosum - an interconnector of communication pathways. Note the similarities between the cherubim and the brain - each touches the wall but is not joined to it.
1KI 6:27 And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst

EZE 1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.
Left and Right Brain Functions Although the cerebrum is symmetrical in structure, with two lobes emerging from the brain stem and matching motor and sensory areas in each, certain intellectual functions are restricted to one hemisphere. A person's dominant hemisphere is usually occupied with language and logical operations, while the other hemisphere controls emotion and artistic and spatial skills. In nearly all right-handed and many left-handed people, the left hemisphere is dominant.

MAT 27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
MAT 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
The Pharisees of the land were fixated on the physical temple and little did they realize that it was only a symbol of what was taking place within the human temple. If we are not careful, we fall victim to the very same error when we study the tabernacle. When Jesus yielded up the ghost, the sacrifice was complete and the resurrection power brought forth many bodies of the saints. Do not you believe that Samuel, Isaiah, and Daniel were among these that were brought forth and, if they desired, could still walk about the earth today? For the sacrifice of the Lamb activated the resurrection power for these saints. And three days later, that same power would be demonstrated personally by the resurrection of Jesus' own body. The first part of what Jesus said to Mary [sister of Lazarus] was fulfilled. But, the second part went right by Mary, because the time for general transfiguration belonged to another dispensation. Nearly 2000 years later, are we that generation that will believe what Jesus said in verse 26?
JOH 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
When Jesus yielded up the ghost, the veil of the temple was rent in twain and the secrets known only to the priests were opened up to the believers. The age of the church and the spiritual outworking of Pentecost had begun. Within the holiest place was the ark and hidden within that ark was Aaron's almond rod that buddeth, the golden pot of manna, and the tables of the law. These were symbols of the ending of an age, but also symbols of what existed in a higher realm. We know that the tables of the law were replaced by the earnest of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not evaluate by external circumstances but by the thoughts and intents of the heart. And, yet, at Pentecost, only the earnest of the Spirit was received. God is telling us that there is much more - we look forward to the fullness of the Spirit. The hidden manna was saved from a time when the Hebrews wandered in the wilderness and it sustained them there. But, we are coming from the wilderness into the promised land. For us the promised land is not a nation by the Mediterranean Sea, but it is the redemption of our body. For this, we need a word that preexisted before the foundation of the world - the old corn of the land. And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day. And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year. JOS 5:11, 12 Therefore, we see a new and more powerful fulfillment of the Spirit and the Word as we prepared to redeem our promised land - our celestial body. But, what about Aaron's rod that budded, what will be the higher and greater fulfillment of the powers of the almond rod? Will we use it to part the crystal sea? What priesthood will move us forward to our promised land?
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?
PSA 110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
At the time Jesus walked the earth, He began the outworking the priesthood of Melchisedec. But, He will call on His brethren to finish what He had begun. For this priesthood is from the womb of the morning and preexisted before the foundation of the world. And they have a rod of the very strength of God that is much more powerful than rod used by Aaron and Moses. As tribulation increases in this world, they will wield this rod to part the sea of misery and circumstances for those who will turn to God in their time of tribulation. In order to move into this ministry, we must be willing to forsake the rags of the old order and receive the marching orders of the order of Melchisedec. This will not be an easy task, for one must be willing to dissolve the elements [stoicheions] of the three outer courts and move on to fully receive the mind of Christ. The three outer courts represent resurrection. What is next is ascension and transfiguration! One must leave milk and meat behind and go on to strong meat - and be willing to go through the fire that brings new heavens and a new earth. One must come to full age and maturity be willing to roll up the outer courts [levels of thinking] and cross the crystal sea. Are you one of those pioneers and explorers that will launch out into the deep? What is this new realm? Paul described it very eloquently in his letter to the Hebrews. Note that the translators have translated "stoicheions" as "principles" here rather than as "elements" as was done in II Peter.
