Coals from the Bronze Altar was to be brought to the Altar of Incense. The incense was to be burnt 24/7. The continues incense is something that's odd to us because we do not follow it any longer. The smoke was continuous and perpetual which is the same as His intercession that He has for us now, Heb 7. It was enjoyable to God, sweet smelling to Him. Christ is our incense now. The incense is exclusive, Ex 30:7-8. Heb 7:25 Jesus is making intersession for us constantly.
Ex 30:34-37 there was only one thing that God would accept and it was specific. We also have the only acceptable form and that is Jesus Christ. He alone is the only way unto Heaven and ones salvation. Rom 8:26-28
It's important that it's exclusive. Two times a day the incense was to be placed on the altar. It was a constant stream of smell. No strange fire was to be brought, it was to be pure. Just as today, if you try to do it yourself God will not accept it. Nothing other than Jesus Christ will God accept. Religion, church attendance, baptisms or works will never get one into Heaven. It's a strange fire, offering and will not be accepted by God for your salvation. John 14:6
There is still power in the mediation. You should be very careful of your lifestyle and how you live. Death has been on our trail since we were born into this world. But, God gave us a way to escape thru Jesus Christ alone that we may escape death to live in Heaven for eternity BUT only if Jesus Christ is accepted as your savior. Rom 8:30-39
The offering has been made and the incense is burning. Come and accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

1And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it. 2A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same. 3And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about. 4And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal. 5And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. 6And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee. 7And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it. 8And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations. 9Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon. 10And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD. (KJV)
