The incense was made of sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each having a like weight. It was made a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy. It was beaten very small and put before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation where God met with Israel. It was most holy. Nothing was to made like it for any person in Israel. If anyone tried to duplicate it, they were cut off from the people. (Exodus 30:34-38).  For we have only one God whose name is Jesus Christ who is our Redeemer and Saviour.


"Confection" is used only one time in the Word of God and is from the Hebrew "roqach" meaning "perfume, an aromatic" meaning "emaciated, abnormally lean-fleshed". This confection was beat small and put before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation with three spices, pure and holy. "Pure" used with sweet spices alludes to clean and uncontaminated in the physical sense of the flesh, that being holy. "Holy" is from the Hebrew "qodesh" meaning "sacred" referring to the character of God Himself, not in an abstract but literal sense of the Spirit manifesting in human flesh and blood as the spotless Lamb of God. To clarify, "holy" used with the incense referring to Jesus Christ is not in the state or quality of being held sacred or consecrated to deity, but is the concrete, material, perceptible, manifested existence of God Himself.  The man Christ Jesus as a human body of flesh and blood that never knew sin or carried the weight or body of sin. This speaks of God being realized and perceived by one's senses; that is, in the revelation or unveiling of God in and through His own body of natural flesh consisting of spirit, soul, and body as a man, the Light shining through the vail of flesh.  The sacrifice had to meet the righteous demands of God in order to be accepted of God as a sweet savour while at the same time being the Sin offering. God declared the man Christ Jesus to be the Son of God by the resurrection from the dead by the Spirit of holiness, the resurrection proving that the man Christ Jesus was indeed accepted by God as the sacrifice for sin as the Son of God.  John portrayed Jesus as Pure and Holy, the literal manifested "Qodesh" because he saw Him, looked on Him, his hands handled Him in the body of God's flesh and blood. John literally handled the Word of Life through the office of the Son of God.


"Sweet" typifies the perfect divine nature of God, Jesus Christ as the perfect man having never sinned thus fulfilling the law in every respect. The sweet spices were tempered together so that is was one, pure and holy, indistinguishable as to the individual spices as separate traits. "Stacte" was obtained by cutting a branch for the aromatic gum to ooze out in drops. This speaks of Jesus being pierced and His blood oozing out in drops in His forehead when His soul was in "an agony" in the Garden of Gethsemane. The second spice was that of "onycha" which was an aromatic mussel found on the ocean floor depicting that one would have to dive deep for this inconspicuous truth as pertaining to the mystery of God; that is, that Jesus Christ is God manifested in a human body of flesh and blood. The third spice was "galbanum" which was a yellowish to green or brown aromatic bitter gum or resin that contained essential oils derived from Asiatic plants that were used for medicine in healing. The color yellow in the Word of God speaks of suffering and tribulation. This are the stripes that Jesus bore in His flesh that paid for our healing through His eternal Spirit. 


The "pure frankincense" was added to these three spices for incense, but the frankincense was not an incense in itself, but was used for burial and fumigation. "Pure" being used with "frankincense" speaks of the clean, clear, transparent, translucent death of the body of the sinless, spotless, holy, harmless, undefiled man Jesus Christ. The Son of God, in his body of human flesh and blood died for the sin of the world defeating the devil who had mankind in bondage all their lifetime by death. The death of Jesus Christ was clear for the scrutiny of the whole world to discern the body of Christ as its inestimable value as a sin offering, trespass offering, meat offering, drink offering, free will offering, and peace offering. The love of God is clearly manifested in the "pure frankincense".  


The apothecary was a perfumer who prepared spices and perfumes for ointments, who later became known as the person who prepared ointments for medicine and healing to the body. These spices were tempered together as rubbed to pieces or pulverized, as salt. This was Jesus Christ as the perfect Lamb of God; nothing in excess, nothing lacking, the perfect man, who was the healer, the Holy Ghost manifested in human flesh and blood. He sent His Word and healed them. (Psalms 107:20).


All together, the incense that was made of sweet spices depicted Jesus Christ as the perfect, spotless Son of God, the only begotten being the only true God born of a virgin that was manifested in human flesh and blood who never sinned. Therefore He was the spotless Lamb of God who would take away the sin of the world. The incense portrayed the valuable truths of the man Christ JESUS, who through his suffering and death  brought the incense of a sweet savour unto God as shown forth in His death on the cross; thus, bringing healing and deliverance over death to mankind.
