The Censer is the vessel in which incense was presented on “the golden altar" before the Lord in the temple (Ex. 30:1-9) The priest filled the censer with live coal from the sacred fire on the altar of burnt-offering, and having carried it into the sanctuary, there threw upon the burning coals the sweet incense (Lev. 16:12-13), which sent up a cloud of smoke, filling the apartment with fragrance.
The angel in the Apocalypse is represented with a golden censer (Rev. 8:3, 5). Paul speaks of the golden censer as belonging to the tabernacle (Hebrews 9:4). The Greek word thumiaterion, ( Θυμιατό ) means “censer" or “the altar of incense". The thumiaterion was was intimately connected with the high priest's service in the holiest.
