Zechariah 1:14-16 and Zechariah 2:4,5
On this, the 100th Anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, this prophecy was released to me. Enjoy!
Placed strategically in the midst of the valleys surrounding her, Jerusalem stands . . . a city with fortified walls. Below is a picture of the “City of David” built 3,000 years ago and continues to be unearthed. Debbie, Sophie, and I stood at its highest point, presumably on top of the remains of King David’s palace itself. From this vantage point we could see the hills surrounding Jerusalem . . . from the Mount of Olives, continuing through Mount Zion and extending 360 degrees around; making a natural defense barrier for her. Surely, this could become a “city without walls.” But how? We know scripturally that Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies. The indication from Luke 21:20 is its destruction. But, either before or after these things occur, either a new day or an intermission from conflict is coming for this, the City of the Great King. To this end, we prayed. To this end, eschatologically, I saw. My hope is that this vision speaks of an interlude that will be soon and last long.
Vision: By the grace and revelation of our God, I saw Jerusalem become a bastion of peace, a city defended; without need of any walls. The city was safe! The people were safe! As I looked in the Spirit, I saw warring angels upon every hill surrounding the city. God Himself, the Lord of Hosts, was defending her. Our God will be, as the scripture says, “A wall of fire around her and the glory in the midst of her.“ As we prayed, I saw war begin. This multitude of angels stood; fiercely prepared as vast enemy armies approached; coming up the backside of the mountains with tanks, infantry, and munitions. These armies had one intention; “conquer Jerusalem!” Suddenly, acting at the awesome commanding voice of the Lord God Almighty, the angels went into action, hurling “hail stones” and “balls of fire” down the mountains. A glorious light then immediately filled the whole interior space; reaching from earth to Heaven. Shortly after this war was won, Jerusalem was in peace. She was never touched.

“Human being, I have appointed you to be a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a Word from My mouth, you are to warn them for Me” (Yechezk’el) Ezekiel 3:17).

Thanks for checking on our Seder reservations. Bill and I enjoyed it! I did make a bit of a mistake, though. I was complimenting the Rabbi on their new building and Mikveh. In my enthusiasm, I said: “And your future daughter-in-law will be in the Mikveh soon!” He said, “Oh, you’ve been listening to the gossip!” I looked at him with a totally blank stare and said: “No, I don’t know any gossip!” He then left the table.
