John 1:50-51 “Jesus said, ‘You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that.’ He then added, ‘I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.’ “
The Scene: Stairways to heaven: the steps rising from earth represent Jesus’ humanity; while the stairways reach the clouds, the top represents access to the throne of heaven.
Without a personal faith in Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, humankind has no way to get to the Father in heaven. Smoke is rising in front of the stairways–symbolic of prayers of the saints reaching heavenly realms.
Proverbs 15:8 “The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.”
Revelation 8:3-4 “Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel’s hand.”
