Vs 1 When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
Vs 3 And another angel … was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne,
Vs 4 and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.
VS 5 Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth.
13 … “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!”
The judgement of God is coming.
But He is patient.
There will be a pause … a time of preserving the saints.
And the prayers of the saints are somehow involved in the coming and overflowing of the judgement of God.
The prayers of the saints rise before God …
And then pour over the earth!
And everyone on earth should have the highest level of alertness and caution for this coming judgement!
Do I take the coming judgement of God seriously?
And do I take my current prayers seriously?
This judgement will come, but for the saints it is something we can actually pray for.
Because with God’s judgement comes the ultimate justice,
Even if we don’t understand it now.
But God will secure, preserve, and protect us … the “saints”.
With this security, I can confidently pray for the ultimate judgement of God to come.
Thank you, God, that your judgment means ultimate justice.
Help me prayers be a pleasing aroma for You
Help me pray wisely and in your ways
In Jesus Name
