135) Incense thuribles
Incense in Orthodoxy and Catholicism has magic powers, put into the powder by priestcraft rites. It is witchcraft.
Like the Hebrew Roots Movement (or Judaizing heresy) the Orthodox like to slip in old testament laws into their religion, but on a lesser scale. Their main scripture is:
"For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts."
The biggest revival in history was in Nineveh. And "Out of Egypt" came not only Jews, but a "mixed multitude". If the verse in Malachi is supposed to justify the Orthodox for creating a man made new syncretic religion, cherry picking OT law and stirring it up in a cauldron into a witches' brew, thus justifying beards on clergy and swinging incense in church, think again. It is not new covenant law.
The "powers" these thuribles are attributed with are occult and absurd.
Incense hurling power weapon
against demons. Used in tandem
to increase the pseudo holy power
in rituals to impart anathema
on people (voodoo).
Clean out demons from the church walls before chrismation and baptism services.
