And Yahweh spoke to Moshe, saying, ‘And take for yourself choice spices…250 [shekels or 6.25 lbs] of sweet smelling cinnamon…[Exodus 30:23]

And you shall make from these a qodesh [holy] anointing oil…[v.25].


  • Cinnamon is the 2nd spice or herb mentioned for the anointing oil. [Myrrh, the 1st,  represented the bitter sweet death of the Son of El Elyon, Yeshua, at Golgotha; given to Him as a babe, & used at His death.]
  • Cinnamon[cinnamomum verum] is from the small evergreen of laurel. It contains eugenol similar to clove or camphor oil, taken from young tree shoots or branches [~like the young spout from the root of Jesse, Isaiah 11:1] . Cinnamon leaves can be used like bay leaves.
  • The Hebrew for cinnamon is “kinna“, for jealousy, from burn to be zealous, and “min“, form or appearance : kinna min, the appearance of jealousy!
  • Cinnamon represents the red hot love, the holy passion, the godly jealousy for the honor and glory of Yahweh in a servant with the heart of righteousness: Yeshua!
  • See the righteous zeal and jealousy for the Father’s glory, John/ Yochanan 2:14-17 :

Yeshua found in the Temple those selling oxen & sheep & doves, & the moneychangers sitting.

And having made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the Temple, with the sheep & oxen, and poured out the moneychangers’ coins & overturned tables.

And He said to those selling doves, Take these away! Do not make the house of My Father a house of merchandise!

And His talmidim [disciples] remembered that it was written [in the Scriptures, TaNaKH], ‘ Because ardour  for Your house has eaten me up [Psalms 69:9]’ !

David, who looked forward to his Master Yeshua, in Psalms 110:1,  also declared :

I  walk around Your altar, O Yahweh, to raise a voice of thanksgiving, and to declare all Your wonders. Yahweh, I have loved the abode of Your House, and the place where Your esteem dwells {Psalms 26:6b-8}!

Holy love is the person of Yeshua through His death, shed blood and resurrection! He alone will purge the house of Yahweh! He is the lover of our souls, the Only Holy One who can truly cleanse us & set us on fire with His Spirit! His own temple, His body, He laid low in death, for us. Yeshua bore cruelty with the burning love of Yahweh!  He says to us now,

Cinnamomum verum, from ''Köhler's Medicinal Pl...

Put me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm [as a signet ring];  For love is as strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave;  Its flames are flames of fire, A flame of YAH!  7 Many waters are unable to extinguish love & floods do not wash it away.  If one would give all the wealth of his house for love,  it would be utterly scorned [Song of Songs 8:6-7]!

So we see how cinnamon represents this “evergreen” ever unchanging devotion or zeal which never withers nor gives up on us! HalleluYah!

Cinnamon is great as a tea; it is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal. So try a cup of red hot cinnamon and spice up your life!

Cinnamon in the anointing oil represents, in conclusion, Yahweh’s holy jealousy for His honor and glory, in the heart of His Righteous Servant, Yeshua :

Yeshua said to them [the Pharisees], ‘You are those who declare yourselves righteous before men, but Elohim knows your hearts, because what is highly thought of among men is an abomination in the sight of Elohim…the reign of Elohim is being announced & everyone is doing violence upon it [Luke 16:15]!

Yeshua Ha MashiahBe a servant as passionate and zealous as Yeshua for the glory & honor of His Kingdom !

  1. Deuteronomy 4:24 For the L*rd thy G*d is a consuming fire, even a jealous G*d.

    Deuteronomy 9:3Understand therefore this day, that the L*rd thy G*d is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the L*rd hath said unto thee.

    Hebrews 12:29For our G*d is a consuming fire.2 Peter 3:9-13
    2 Peter 3: 10But the day of the L*rd will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
    then~ 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of G*d, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?…yes that is a question mark there!!…so….is it possible I ask….that this {FERVENT HEAT??}Means his Revelation 14:11
    And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever
    This article has given an interesting perspective on cinnamon…Always amazed how much power & wonder is in every over-looked word like cinnamon…because we do not fully understand the depth and dimensions of every word…man does not live on bread alone…oh taste & see that He is good! Hebrew for cinnamon is “kinna“, for jealousy, from burn to be zealous, and “min“, form or appearance : kinna min, the appearance of jealousy!Galatians 4:18But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing

    There is a high premium on passion. Few there be that have sufficient care and passion to shake off the concerns of this life. Get ahold of a red-hot spiritual passion that drives you to pray, drives you to praise, drives you to reach out. Get serious enough to turn tables over in your life, in your home, and in your spirit. Take a moment to earnestly/objectively stop and consider where your spiritual thermostat is set.
