When we pray, heaven and earth begin to connect, and our prayers become like incense received into the angel’s golden censer.” Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” (Rev 5:8) “And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.” (Rev 8:4)
This painting is about intercession. God wants us to partner with Him linking heaven and earth. The painting shows an intercessor prostrating over the earth over the Middle East, the focal point of the world. When an intercessor intercedes according to God’s will, the prayers of the saints ascend like incense, and God’s messenger pours out golden anointing and blessing. The Comforter Holy Spirit (dove) leads the intercessor to enter into the glorious radiance of God’s presence, and gives revelation and wisdom to enable the intercessor to understand Father God’s heart.
The love, warmth and anointing from heavenly Father are like a banner of protection and covering over the intercessor. His banner over me is love! We can worship Him with the angels in the highest place and love Him deeper.
