John Y These verses suggest that angels and elders took (intermediary/go-between)? the prayers of the saints to the throne/altar. How do you interpret that? Is their job just to transport them in the spiritual realm, or are they more involved in the admin of prayers?
Rev 8:3 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 THE SAINTS** upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with **THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS,** ascended up before God out of the angel's hand
Rev 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are **THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS.**
