People's Bible Notes for Revelation 8:4


Re 8:4 And the smoke of the incense, [which came] with the prayers of the saints, ascended. As the smoke arose before the throne, so the prayers of the saints in the name of the crucified Savior arise to God. The special significance of all this is that in the terrible judgments about to follow, the prayers of the true and faithful saints will still come before God, and his providence will be over them.
