Much Incense: Worship brings down answers

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and blessing.” Rev 5:12.
“When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.” Rev 8:1-4
Forever He will be, the Lamb upon the throne, I’ll gladly bow my knee and Worship you alone – All Heavens declare. Jesus Christ is worthy of our Worship forever, because of what he did on Cross for us.
Revelation is the last book in the Bible, but it is one of the more important books. and a very present book, in the sense that we are living in it right now. Hence it is very important for you, to read this book once every few months. The book is prophecy and also a Book of Worship.
Worship, Song, Poetry, Praise, Chorus, Adoration, Thanksgiving in Music is what is seen here again and again. After the Book of Psalms, this is the Book with the MOST WORSHIP. From the Living creatures, to the 24 elders, to the Redeemed mankind, to birds and animals, everybody has a song on their lips – A Song to Christ for dying for us and for His Mercies and Praise of God’s Glory.
And each time God responds to Worship. Even finally Christ comes back to the earth in response to Worship in Rev 19. Yes, Jesus comes back to the earth to rule and reign for a 1000 years in response to Worship. As in Rev 8 above, its the Incense that brings down the answers. So if you want answers, spend time in Worship. All of you must have a few hymn books at home – whether you are a single person or a family. Just open the Song book and start singing a few songs, and I assure you that something will move – small or big. Even if you don’t get the answer, His presence will bring comfort and healing. And some solace will come.
Worship is the Most precious and important thing that you can do on earth. Worship is a daily activity. For Timothy Marthand, my classical pianist friend, its 6-7 hours everyday at the piano, playing Bach and Beethoven, Worshipping Christ. I too spend time daily at the piano, sometimes even my pigeons join me in Worshipping God. Been so for years. Worship is our very life’s breath. For those of you, have gotten busy and stopped playing instruments or singing, its time to restart.
“I will sing unto the Lord, as long as I live,
I will sing Praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of Him shall be sweet,
I will be glad in the Lord” Psalm 104:33.34
