These are times when we all could use a little encouragement. Recently some good cheer came to me all the way from an old friend leaning over the balcony of heaven!
The Bible speaks of a great crowd of faithful witnesses in heaven, watching us, hovering over us like a cloud (Hebrews 12:1). Many of these faithful witnesses have prayed for us through the ages. Both Old and New Testament saints like Abraham, Moses, and Isaiah, apostles like John and Peter. Many are still praying for us in heaven now. Like my dear friend Anna (not her real name).
In a vision I saw a balcony area in heaven crowded with saints. Leaning over the railing, my friend Anna was gazing down at me, smiling. She was waving a white lace-trimmed handkerchief, perhaps trying to stand out from the crowd and so get my attention–which she did.
She did not speak to me in words. But I believe she was encouraging me to persevere through these difficult times. Keep on praying and believing for better days ahead. Keep the faith. Heaven is praying with us. God will send Revival to America. America shall be saved. God’s Kingdom will come. His will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Just as we have prayed.
Synergy of the ages
God calls it the synergy of the ages. Synergy combines the prayers of all the saints, resulting in a huge multiplication of power–much greater than the sum of all our individual prayers. Synergy works in the natural physical world, when the compounding of two chemicals, for example, results in something greater than the two chemicals separately. The results can be explosive.
The same is true with our prayers. God combines all the prayers of all the saints through the ages. Their prayers and our prayers are not lost or forgotten. They do not float away or wear out after we speak them. They ascend to heaven, gathering in heavenly golden incense bowls (Revelation 5:8). Mixed together, our prayers multiply in dynamic power, ready to explode upon the earth.
And when the time is right, God instructs the angels to pour out the answers we have been waiting for. His will is done on the earth as it is in heaven. The Lord ministers real heavenly justice. He punishes evil. He raises up the good. He restores order out of chaos. He gives beauty for ashes. Restoring broken dreams and broken hearts. Extravagant blessings flow like water as He pours out His LOVE on earth. Healings and miracles overflow. Rivers upon the dry grounds.
In its time, it will come. Keep the faith. Pray on. Heaven is praying with us. Synergy is happening. Overflow is downloading from heaven. All of heaven celebrates.
May the God of hope grant you all joy and peace in believing that by the power of the Holy Spirit of God you do abound in hope–joyful expectation that what God says He will do. (Romans 15:13)
