Thought provoking...

by Cyndie Simmons

Very well-written, thought provoking article and I will need to do some more research. I'm not sure I agree with the "prayers" as being the daily sacrifice...although it is a sacrifice when you think about it to make time for prayer each day amidst all the hustle and bustle the "world" has placed upon us. One thing for sure, these scriptures in Revelation came to mind as I read the article:

Revelation 5:5-8: "And one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Yehuḏah,(1) the Root of Daviḏ,(2) overcame to open the scroll and to loosen its seven seals.” {Footnotes: (1) Hebrews 7:14 (2) Isaiah 11:1 & 10.}
6 And I looked and saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of Elohiym * sent out into all the earth. 7 And He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne. 8 And when He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the set-apart ones."

Revelation 8:2-6: "And I saw the seven messengers who stand before Elohiym *, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer, and much incense was given to him, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the set-apart ones upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before Elohiym from the hand of the messenger. 5 And the messenger took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, and thunders, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 6 And the seven messengers who held the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound."

* Elohiym is the Hebrew word for Mighty One, Power, of God. It can be any mighty one, power, god or THE ONE TRUE God.
