Welcome to our next blog. For those new to the blog and groups, we focus on the Hebrew aspect of the scriptures. Knowledge of the Hebrew language is not a requirement to be part of this journey, however, it will inspire you to know more. If you are new to the Hebrew Letters, below is a link to the last blog on the Living Letters. Within that blog are the links to all the letters. (LINK) When you look to the right of the blog you’ll see categories that you can browse. There’s no specific starting point, but i do suggest you work through the Hebrew Letters first.
The podcast for the blog appears at the end of the blog. The Throne Room engagement recordings are added on Mondays, so when you go to the previous blogs you’ll find them below the podcast. Not all engagement recordings are public so they are only accessible through the blog. Thank you for being part of the journey.
Mystic realms of the Hebrew word: לְבוֹנָה Levo-nah – Frankincense
Our focus in this blog is the word לְבוֹנָה Levo-nah, the Hebrew word for ‘frankincense’.
As king of fragrances, frankincense towers above the rest in quality & smell, but most of all its use in the Holy of Holies at the Ark of the Covenant.
Exodus 30:34–38 NIV
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts, and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred. Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you. Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the Lord. Whoever makes incense like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from their people.”
Hebrew for Frankincence
Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament) 4227 I. לְבוֹנָה
4227 I. לְבוֹנָה (leḇô·nā(h))
frankincense, libanum, i.e., a fragrant, milky, resinous gum in granules or globules from trees of the genus Boswellia carterii, crushed to powder and used as incense
There are three words that closely entangle with frankincense, they are ‘fragrant’, ‘pure’ and ‘incense’. I’m sure you’ve wondered what the purpose of incense was in the temple over and above its fragrance. Everything in the temple had divine significance, and that includes frankincense. To understand frankincense, we first need to unfold the other three words.
The Hebrew word for Pure is:
Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament) 2341 זַךְ
pure, flawless, i.e., pertaining to an upright and innocent state, free of guilt and in a position of justification
Take into consideration the following scripture.
2 Corinthians 2:15–17 TPT
We have become the unmistakable aroma of the victory of the Anointed One to God — a perfume of life to those being saved and the odor of death to those who are perishing. The unbelievers smell a deadly stench that leads to death, but believers smell the life-giving aroma that leads to abundant life. And who of us can rise to this challenge? For unlike so many, we are not peddlers of God’s Word who water down the message. We are those sent from God with pure motives, who speak in the sight of God from our union with Christ.
The key here is ‘union with Jesus’. לְבוֹנָה represents our perfect union in Him. The purity of the fragrance ignites the framework of Christ in me. An aroma well pleasing to the Lord, is a fragrance that releases the accomplished work of the cross. Within לְבוֹנָה, the frequency of justification resonates with Jesus slain at the foundation of the world. It entangles with what it released before creation to unlock the fragrance of the mystery… oneness and union. Though the high Priest had to go through the various cleansing rituals before he could enter the Holy of Holies, the fragrance of לְבוֹנָה at the Ark, released the framework of our perfect union in Christ. The mystery in the fragrance of לְבוֹנָה, is that it served as a structure for ascension, positioning the high Priest in the finished work of the cross. When you refer to the scripture in Exodus 30, no one could enjoy לְבוֹנָה outside the temple, because it is only the cross that activates its benefits of ascension. You ascend outside the cross… kapoef.. ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Psalm 24:3–4 NIV
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
Job 8:6 NIV
if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state.
Hebrew for incense:
Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament) 7792 קְטֹרֶת
7792 קְטֹרֶת (qeṭō·rěṯ)
incense, burning perfumes, i.e., material used to produce a fragrant smoke, note: usually used for incense offerings;
smoke offering, i.e., an offering of incense burned on an altar to worship deity.
If there’s a book that speaks of pure, raw and intense intimacy, it is the book Song of Solomon.
Song of Solomon 3:6 NIV
Who is this coming up from the wilderness like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and incense made from all the spices of the merchant?
Song of Solomon 4:6 CJB
When the day’s cool breeze comes up and the shadows lengthen, I will get myself to the mountain of myrrh, to the hill of frankincense.
A mountain mostly represents a spiritual domain, a kingdom for governance. To ascend up a mountain is to rise into a domain governed by a ruler. לְבוֹנָה as the ascension framework of the finished work of the cross, it is the mountain that positions us as an offering unto the Lord. I am speaking of an offering where a woman gives herself to her husband in the marriage bed. Frankincense is the fragrance of the intimacy chamber. As the smoke rises from the presence of Yahweh, לְבוֹנָה entangles with the glory resonating the chambers of the secret place. It is a fragrance that resembles such vulnerability, as you stand naked before Him, the aroma of לְבוֹנָה blankets around you, fusing the intimacy of Jesus with the sons of God.
When Moses ascended up the mountain and remained there for forty days and forty nights, the Lord revealed to him the framework for the tabernacle, revealed in Exodus 25.
Exodus 25:6 NIV
…olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
Fragrant incense was among the divine articles used in the tabernacle. Why? Because it contained or represented the aroma of the marriage bed. The fragrance that enraptures the intimacy of Yahweh with his lover… YOU. You, as the temple, carry the fragrance of pure intimacy, the intimacy of IN HIM.
Frankincense לְבוֹנָה carries the frequencies that activate and unlocks the memory of our ascended state. It transports the fragrance of covenant, revealing our oneness in Him. As you breathe in לְבוֹנָה, it creates consciousness of our position in the secret place, awareness of our vulnerability in and through Him, releasing the ecstasy of a love so intense and pure, instilling an enraptured state of constant release of the new wine of His presence.
You want to know what the frequency of לְבוֹנָה sounds like? Here it is:
Song of Solomon 4:16 AMP
[You have called me a garden, she said] Oh, I pray that the [cold] north wind and the [soft] south wind may blow upon my garden, that its spices may flow out [in abundance for you in whom my soul delights]. Let my beloved come into his garden and eat its choicest fruits.
When you read the scripture below, based on the blog, it feels a lot more intimate and intense than before right?
Psalm 141:2 The Living Bible
Regard my prayer as my evening sacrifice and as incense wafting up to you.
If you have frankincense oil, have it handy for our group engagement…not a must for the engagement though.
