The Higher Place is calling!

While I was sleeping I heard the Lord send an invitation, “To come up to My upper room.  I’m calling my bride to a place of worship as I want to create miracles with My Bride.”

The Upper Room is know as the Cenacle (from Latin cēnāculum “dining room”), also known as the Upper Room (from Koine Greek anagaion and hyperōion, both meaning “upper room”), is a room in  David’s Tomb compound in Jerusalem, traditionally held to be the site of the Last Supper.

In the Bible, an upper room was a roof chamber built above the main house, usually for the purpose of leisure. In the Old Testament, upper rooms were usually in the homes of kings and the rich.

From the time of the Old Testament, the ‘upper room’ was usually a room that was built on the roof of houses and was used as a place of prayer to entreat God’s power. It was so essential to those of the Jewish faith that even the poor kept such a room furnished so that guests could be welcomed.

There are a number of examples in the Old Testament of an upper room being used. An example of the upper room being used as a place of prayer and worship occurs in the story of Daniel, where he retreats to his upper room to pray, as it was his custom, even when a decree is put out to kill those who worship anyone besides the king. This is also seen in the book of Tobit, where Sarah goes to her upper room crying and supplicating to the Lord in despair, with her prayers even being answered there. Examples of the use of the upper room in entreating God’s power can be clearly seen in the miracles performed by Elijah and Elisha in raising the widow and Shunammite’s sons respectively Therefore, it is clear that an upper room was common amongst the people of Israel, and that it was considered as a place of retreat and prayer, as well as a place where God’s power was shown.
