“Acts 6:4 says “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” They gave themselves to a time of silence in awe of prayer to God and to the ministry of releasing the word! The Tallit or Prayer Shawl was mostly blue and white, representing the blue heaven, and white represented the righteousness of God in the giving of Torah. But as we look further into the blue it is closely related to Onycha which was a mixture of the anointing oil made in Old Testament times. Onycha represents the sound of the roar of the Lion of Judah in prayer. The Apostolic Blueprint and design of God is to bring heaven to earth in prayer, and to release a word from heaven in the earth! Acts 2:42 says “And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’…and in prayers.” Also Acts 13:3 says “And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.” After they fasted and prayed the Apostles were sent out! Revelation 5:6-8 says, “And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” What we see in verse 6, is the resurrected Christ in heaven, and the sending of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost into all the earth! The Prophet Zechariah sees the same thing in the Spirit, because in the Spirit there is no time (Zech.3:1-10). We see Satan standing to accuse Joshua, who is a picture of Yeshua (Jesus our Messiah); but according to Revelation 12:9-10, Satan is kicked out of heaven from accusing the saints after Christ’s ascension into heaven, then the Holy Spirit is sent on the day of Pentecost (Acts2, Rev.12:10). The Bible says in the book of Revelation that after Christ took the book the twenty-four Elders then fell down and began to worship with harps and golden vails full of odors which are the prayers of saints. The harp is a Davidic instrument in the sight of God. Psalms 43:4 says, “Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.” The harp here is a prophetic picture of the tabernacle of David: Acts 15:13-17 says, “And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me: Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.” The Apostles understood the pattern that was to be built. And with the tabernacle of David comes worship and prayer! Revelation 8:2-3 says, “And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.” Psalms 141:2 says, “Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.” Revelation 8:4-5 says, “And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” Notice what happens with vails of prayer that the twenty-four Elders had; the angel takes it and offers it with incense to God upon the altar, and he takes the golden censer and fills it with fire from the altar that the prayers of the saints were on and cast the fire in the earth! And the next few things that happen are vital to our understanding. When the angel cast the fire from the prayers into the earth it brought forth:
Revelation 4:5 gives the same instance in reverse order from the throne of God which says, “And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.” First from the throne of God the decree comes, and those decrees are:
So, from the throne of God the decree comes from heaven to earth, THEN from earth to heaven.
Lightnings is the glory of God, the shine of his presence.
Thunderings is the roar of God in Christ as the Lion.
Voices are the sound of the Spirit of God. But in chapter 8, the sound of the Spirit inside the people of God begin to cry out! Because of the fire of intercession from the altar. The thunderings that come from earth to heaven is the roar of travail. The travailing prayer that has been set on fire from heaven to bring forth the birthing of what God has planted inside of the people of God, the lightning of his glory!! YOU ARE BIRTHING OUT THE GLORY OF GOD THAT WILL FILL THE EARTH! This glory will bring THE EARTHQUAKE!! The fear of God, the shaking of foundations that are not built on Christ, and the movement towards Reformation. Proverbs 9:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” There are seven dimensions to the Spirit of God: Wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, holiness, and the fear of the Lord. The Fear of the Lord is the Seventh dimension of the Holy Spirit of God, but Wisdom is the first dimension. Knowledge is the fifth dimension of the Spirit of God and Holiness is the sixth dimension of the Spirit. In this generation we need a birthing of the fear of God to rain on us from the heavens! This is only going to happen when Apostles walkout the blueprint, design and the setting forth of prayer, fasting, and the releasing of the word that God intended!
Prayer: Father we come before you and we ask for wisdom and revelation to invade the atmosphere of the hearers and readers! We pray that the blueprint of the express image of your plans and purposes would be superimposed on your Apostles in this hour like never before! That they began to build the old waste places because they have received the download from heaven to do so! Let the repairers of the breaches come forth with the right equipment to begin the fittings of supernatural giftings to begin to hold and support where needed! Let pillars arise in the earth that can stand and guard! Cause a shift to happen in your people that would be both spoken by the Spirit and the Apostles that would bring the manifestation of the kingdom and the surrender of the earth into proper alignment! For Lord you have given us language to establish the earth for Isaiah 51:16 says, “And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.” And Isaiah 59:21 commands the succession of your word out of the mouth of Christ into our mouths saying, “As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.” And we decree and declare this prayer in Jesus name! Amen!”
