Frankincense & Myrrh Anointing Oil

In temple days, sweet incense containing Frankincense was placed on the Inner Altar of the Tabernacle and burned morning and evening. It speaks of intercession. This is formulated with hint of Myrrh, which was used as a burial spice and in purification rites (Queen Esther bathed in oil of myrrh for 6 months), was a primary ingredient of the Holy Anointing Oil. It speaks of suffering and death, but our total victory in the atoning work of Messiah. Frankincense & Myrrh, two of the three prophetic gifts given to the Messiah at His birth, represent His role as Priest and Prophet. Song of Sol. 3:6 "Who is this coming in a pillar of smoke, smelling of myrrh and frankincense?"
