Standing with the Lord Before the Golden Bowls of Incense- 04-13-17
In the vision, Jesus was standing dressed as High Priest before the Golden Bowls of Incense in the Holy Place. I was standing next to Him dressed just like Him. He reached his hands into the golden bowls of Incense and Jesus began to stir the Incense with his fingers. The Incense flowed through his hands like little golden lights and then he blew with his lips upon the Incense and it flashed in the bowl like fire.
Psalm 141:2 Let my prayer be counted as incense before You; The lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.
Revelation 5:8-10 And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb Christ, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of fragrant incense, which are the prayers of the saints God’s people. And they sang a new song of glorious redemption, saying, “Worthy and deserving are You to take the scroll and to break its seals; for You were slain sacrificed, and with Your blood You purchased people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. “You have made them to be a kingdom of royal subjects and priests to our God; and they will reign on the earth.”
The Lord said:
“I am stirring the Bowls of the prayers of my people in this hour. I am fanning them with my hands and with my breath, so that the authority of your prayers will fully expand. The coals of holy intercession shall indeed burn deeper in this land. Sue, I have many royal priests of great worth who stand before me upon the earth. Know that I shall increase the brooding of my spirit more, and I will fan my peoples hearts even more. My House shall be filled with prayer for the nations. My house shall be filled with great light, with great fire, and with great glory, to change the course and destinies of the nations of the earth.”
“This is the Year of Great Prayer, and you must use it wisely as it has been given unto you who know what to do. I am entrusting these Holy Bowls to you. My purposes for your nation shall come forth but your nation shall stand strong only through a deeper fiery prayer birth. Furnaces of intercession shall soon rise from your nations skies up to my watchful eyes. Your nation shall indeed know that I am their God, and that by My Faithfulness to them they shall stand. It's time for steadfast prayer to join hand unto hand, for My Incense shall rise and shall ignite multitudes across the lands. My Spirit of Prayer shall blow intensely upon you all, and the Incense from your prayers shall rise from My Hands, unto My Father who hears them all.”
The Spirit of Prayer:
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace or unmerited favor and supplication. And they shall look [earnestly] upon Me Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and shall mourn in bitterness for Him as one who is in bitterness for his firstborn. [John 19:37; Rev. 1:7.]
Psalm 65:1-13 To You belongs silence the submissive wonder of reverence, and it bursts into praise in Zion, O God; And to You the vow shall be performed. O You who hear prayer, To You all mankind comes. Wickedness and guilt prevail against me; Yet as for our transgressions, You forgive them removing them from Your sight. Blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near To dwell in Your courts. We will be filled with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple. By awesome and wondrous things You answer us in righteousness, O God of our salvation, You who are the trust and hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest sea; Who creates the mountains by His strength, Being clothed with power, Who stills the roaring of the seas, The roaring of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples, So they who dwell at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs the evidence of Your presence. You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy. You visit the earth and make it overflow with water; You greatly enrich it; The stream of God is full of water; You provide their grain, when You have prepared the earth. You water its furrows abundantly, You smooth its ridges; You soften it with showers, You bless its growth. You crown the year with Your bounty, And Your paths overflow. The pastures of the wilderness drip with dew, And the hills are encircled with joy. The meadows are clothed with flocks And the valleys are covered with grain; They shout for joy and they sing.
2 Chronicles 6:33-42 then hear from heaven, from Your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to You, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, and fear You reverently and worshipfully, as do Your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your Name. “When Your people go out to war against their enemies, by the way that You send them, and they pray to You facing this city Jerusalem which You have chosen and the house which I have built for Your Name, then hear from heaven their prayer and their request, and maintain their cause and do justice. “When they sin against You for there is no man who does not sin and You are angry with them and hand them over to an enemy, so that they take them away captive to a land far away or near, if they take it to heart in the land where they have been taken captive, and repent and pray to You in the land of their captivity, saying, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and have acted wickedly’; if they return to You with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, and pray facing their land which You have given to their fathers and toward the city which You have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for Your Name; then hear from heaven, from Your dwelling place, their prayer and requests, and maintain their cause and do justice and forgive Your people who have sinned against You. “Now, O my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. “Now then arise, O Lord God, and come to Your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength and power. Let Your priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation and let Your godly ones rejoice in Your goodness. “O Lord God, do not turn away and reject the face of Your anointed; remember Your lovingkindness and faithfulness to Your servant David.”
Romans 8:26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. 27 And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will. [Ps. 139:1, 2.]. 28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
