Righteous Acts of Saints
In a vision last week I was shown a white gown imprinted with the most beautiful and colorful flowers imaginable. What has been standing prominent recently have been Lavender flowers.
The long white (righteousness of Christ) robe is a spiritual gown fit to be worn by the Body of Christ. The multiplicity of flowers are symbolic of fragrant prayers – sweet offerings – which are included as the righteous acts of the saints. (Ps. 141:2; Rev. 8:3). When I asked the Lord why Lavender flowers were specifically shown in prayer, the following Word of Knowledge was spoken: Healing. Referenced more than one hundred times in the Bible, Lavender also symbolizes purity, devotion and love. It is worded as nard or spikenard by Hebrews. And in Hebrew, the meaning of Lavender is the flower that was used as an offering in the Jerusalem temple. (Source: Snapblooms.com)
The Lord’s Prayer
As disclosed in prophecies, the battle in the heavenly realms is intense. And until the Lord and His celestial army clean out this planet completely, the multifarious effects of a wrathful, evil and fallen son trickle down to unsuspecting and ailing earthly inhabitants. (Eph. 6:12; Rev. 12:12) It is no wonder that the call for prayers is so critical during these latter days when the kingdom of darkness is rebelliously and increasingly clashing against GOD’S Kingdom of Light.
When Jesus gave His inquiring disciples directions on how to pray, He disclosed what became known as the ‘Lord’s Prayer’. His instructions, first and foremost, impressed upon them the realization of knowing Whom they were addressing: “Our FATHER who art in heaven….”. The words that followed were all about the FATHER’S holiness, of bringing HIS Kingdom into our hearts, to allow HIS will to be done in us, to send us HIS Healing Word, about HIS omniscient ability to protect us from temptation and His supreme power to deliver us from all evil. The Lord then importantly completed His instructions with: “For Thine Art The Kingdom And the Power and the Glory For Ever and Ever. Amen“.
The Church is called to humbly recognize and know Whom is being addressed in prayer. To contritely and earnestly recognize GOD’S great love, mercy and grace. To magnify and glorify HIM with praise and thanksgiving for Who HE truly is. To critically remember that HIS Love was so immeasurably immense that HE sent HIS precious Son to bring us back home to HIM. A Son who is our Intercessor and Righteousness before HIM in heaven. A Son empowered by the FATHER to succor and defend us from the entrapment of evil and sin. (Jn. 3:34; Mat. 28:18-20) A Son who continues (Spoken Word) to be the exact expressed image of the FATHER. (Gen. 1:15 ; Jn.1:1) Exactly (Spoken Word). Thank you precious Lord for confirming your Word! In brief, to honor the Son is to honor the FATHER.
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. (Heb. 1:3)
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. (Jn. 5:23)

Keep the Faith. May the radiance of His glory shine upon faithful Believers as we bring pleasant offerings of prayers in His holy temple. (1 Cor. 3:16; Heb. 8:2)
