"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit... By this is My Father glorified that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples."
John 15:5, 8
"You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you."
Fruit that remains -- prayer in the Spirit becomes prophecy:
"And when He broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half and hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God; and seven trumpets were given to them.
And another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, that he might add (Lit. give) it to the prayers of all the true believers upon the golden altar which was before the throne. "And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the true believers, went up before God out of the angel's hand. And the angel took the censer; and he filled it with the fire of the altar and threw it to the earth, and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them."
To ponder: give weighty attention and thought!
"And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me,
And He has also made Me a sharpened arrow;
He has hidden me in His quiver."
"And I have put My words in your mouth, and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish (Lit. plant) the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, 'You are My people.'"
"...for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war... and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses."
Revelation 19:10, 11, 13, 14
"May my prayer be fixed as incense before Thee;
The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice."
