Insights from Shiloh for the Ebola crisis

When the Israelites arrived in the land, they set up the ancient wilderness tent shrine (the Tent of Meeting) in Shiloh and there Joshua divided the land among the tribes. Subsequently, Shiloh became the capital of Israel before the first Temple was built in Jerusalem. The Tent of Meeting was in Shiloh 369 years.
Shiloh means place of rest. The word Shiloh is also generally understood as denoting the Messiah, “the peaceful one.” Today, the community Shiloh is surrounded by farms and vineyards.

Jesus, You are “the peaceful one.” You are our place of rest. In You, we live and move and have our being. May the fruit of Your presence be abundantly manifest in the lives of the Christians in Mali, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.
Shalom over the Christians in these nations, Lord. Shalom! Shalom! Shalom! Amen.
