Power of Thanksgiving and Praise

Rejoice always! Pray constantly. Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

While praying one day, God has given me the following vision: “When God’s people praise Him, their praises and thanksgivings come to the Lord in a form of a very pleasant incense. God breathes in this incense with delight, and after fully satisfying Himself with this incense of praise, it comes out in a form of an incense which is capable to disarm and paralyze a spiritual attack on behalf of the person who gives praise and thanksgiving. This substance (incense) is then collected into special jars and stored in a specially designated room. At a time of need, the angels pour out the contents of the jars on the earth. The incense literally paralyzes the oppression of demons in a way that they can’t see nor move.” How sad that many Christians have their jars completely empty and there is no paralyzing substance for their use. As a confirmation to my vision, the Lord pointed me to these passages:

“Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise in the assembly of saints. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to bind their kings (principalities & powers) with chains, and their nobles (satan’s armies) with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgement – this honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 149:1-2, 4-6, 8-9)

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.” (Acts 16:25, 26)

Praise, singing and prayer are at your rescue. May it never be only at a time of need but at all times!

 

Ancient Prophecy for Our Days

“. . . An assembly of treacherous men.  “And like their bow they have bent their tongues for lies. They are not valiant for the truth on the earth. For they proceed from evil to evil, And they do not know Me,” says the LORD. “Everyone take heed to his neighbor, And do not trust any brother; For every brother will utterly supplant, And every neighbor will walk with slanderers.  Everyone will deceive his neighbor, And will not speak the truth; They have taught their tongue to speak lies; They weary themselves to commit iniquity.  Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; Through deceit they refuse to know Me,” says the LORD. Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, I will refine them and try them; For how shall I deal with the daughter of My people? Their tongue is an arrow shot out; It speaks deceit; One speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, But in his heart he lies in wait.  Shall I not punish them for these things?” says the LORD. “Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?”” (Jeremiah 9:2c–9, NKJV)
