Anyone know what a prayer bowl here means....?

Post by redeemed on Mon Nov 16, 2009 10:26 am

Had a dream this morning that I was one of many in front of a very large crowd. Two men in white, each carrying a prayer bowl, came toward the crowd. One gave a prayer bowl to someone and the other gave the second prayer bowl to me.

I believe by the Lord's help I know what this may mean but, if anyone feels led to share anything with me, please do.

Thank you and God bless.

Your dream made me think of these scriptures. Revelation 8:1-5
  • The Seventh Seal and the Golden Censer


    • 1.
    • When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.


    • 2.
    • And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.


    • 3.
    • Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne.


    • 4.
    • The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel's hand.


    • 5.
    • Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

    Exodus 25:8, Exodus 15:17 ,Leviticus 4:16,Leviticus 16:33,leviticus 21:12,1Kings8:22,8:29,8:54, 2Chronicles6:20 2Chronicles6:35,2Chronicles7:15
    Now understand this:
    The main Temple building rises to a height of 100 cubits, which is approximately 50 meters or 164 feet. (A cubit is the distance from an average man's elbow to the end of his middle finger, estimated at between 48-57.6 cm / 19-22.6 inches.) The Great Gate of the Sanctuary faces due east and the front of the building is 100 cubits wide. The building is somewhat narrower at the back, giving it a form reminiscent of a crouching lion.
    The building consists of three main parts. To the west is the innermost and holiest of all: the Holy of Holies (Kodesh Kodoshim or Dvir), which is 20 cubits (10 m/33 ft) square. In it is the Foundation Stone (Even Shetiyah) upon which stands the Ark of the Covenant. No-one may enter the Holy of Holies except the High Priest once each year on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). The second main part of the building is the Sanctuary (Heichal) which stands to the east of the Holy of Holies and has the same width but is twice as long from west to east. The Sanctuary contains the Candelabrum, lit morning and evening, the Golden Altar, on which incense is burned morning and evening, (this represents the prayers, since you are being called to service. this is where you stands in your requirements) and the Show Bread Table, on which twelve loaves stand from Shabbat to Shabbat.
    Access to the main Temple building is from the Inner Courtyard (Azarah), which stands in front of the Sanctuary to its east. As already stated, access to the Inner Courtyard is from the Outer Courtyard (see below), which encompasses both the Inner Courtyard and the Temple building. The Inner Courtyard is exactly in the center of the Outer Courtyard, with the Temple to its west.
    Thus the Inner Courtyard is bounded by the Temple on its west side and by walls on its north, east and south sides. Each of the latter three walls has a gate in the center. The Inner Courtyard is one hundred cubits square and open to the sky. It is here that many of the main Temple services actually take place.
    Visitors to the Inner Courtyard would be struck not only by the Temple building soaring upwards at the western end of the Inner Courtyard but also by the massive white-painted stone sacrificial Altar standing before the Temple in the very center of the Courtyard. The Altar is thus the center point of both the Inner and Outer Courtyards. At its base the Altar is thirty-two cubits (16 m/52 ft) square and rises to a height of ten cubits (5 m/16 ft). Access to the Altar is from the south up a thirty-two cubit long ramp with two side-ramps.
    The Inner Courtyard contains designated areas of varying degrees of holiness. These include the Court of the Israelites and that of the Priests, which is one cubit higher, forming a raised level where the choir of Levites sings during the sacrificial services. Also in the Court of the Priests is the platform (Duchan) on which the priests stand to bless the people. Other areas and chambers in the Inner Courtyard are used for slaughtering and preparing the sacrifices and for storing the priestly clothes and musical instruments.
    Access to the Inner Courtyard is through three identical massive gates fifty cubits (25 m/82 ft) in height and ten cubits (5 m/16 ft) wide standing in its east, north and south walls. Seen from the Outer Courtyard, these gates would be of particular note because of their striking Vestibules and Pillars, which stand outside the gates flanked by rows of three chambers on either side.
    May the Lord Bless You And Keep You.

    Redeemed~ Communion.....Sharing, participation with, communication, having something in common, includes both something and someone. You may have heard of the Lord's Supper used as a one word description because partakers commune with Jesus Christ and one another. Well, there is also another kind of communion called prayer which ''holds'' the same defination as sharing, participation with, communication. The someone is us and the something is prayer. Now,,,I said all that to say this; when we commune (communicate, discuss) with the father we are simply doing this....When the prayers go up, the blessings come down and fills our vessels or container. Lord, fill up that something that she has before you. Amen~


    Sincerly, Halo

    This is amazing mbstudent.. you study much of the same things as I do.. Couldn't have said it better!! I agree with you about what these prayer bowls would mean. Perhaps will post an interesting dream I had that is sorta in this same vain.

    Btw, also think this has to do with intercessory prayer.

    Also let me add here that in ancient times temple services were conducted twice a day to provide various offerings, including sin offerings, thanksgiving offerings and burnt offerings, all of which are described in several places in great detail in the word, mostly in the book of Leviticus. So each day would start at the rising of the sun with the opening of the temple gates. They would then be broken up into two main parts, the morning service and the evening services. Sacrifices would be brought to the priests, for both services. The incense would be taken outside in the inner court which you made mention of in detail here MBstudent. These would thus be put on the hot coals and the golden alter. These coals originally came from the bronze alter out in the outer court. This incense would burn out and release a thick smoke, filling the area with a wonderful aroma. As the smoke from the incense spread it way from the inner court to the outer court of the temple, the Levites ceased from their praise to God and all the worshipers fell on their faces in silent prayer. The smoke from the burning incense were thus would rise unto God.

    This takes us to Revelation 8:1-5 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 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. 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.

    The above is taken place in heaven and we are seeing what will happen at this time.. the prayers of those were given every morning and evening. Apparently you have this gifting for or of prayer is what I see in all of this.
    Hope this helps!!

    IN HIS RIGHT HAND!!!
