During the Impromptu Worship on the night of our Joel’s Fast, the Holy Spirit laid on my heart an urgent call for the Watchmen on the Wall. This wasn’t just a brief ‘thought’ that passed through my spirit to ponder if I remembered later. This was an intense, urgent, stirring in my bones, roaring Lion of Judah experience. The prophecy and revelation has stuck with me, even as I write this now. If you were with us Friday night, you will remember the word coming forth in song.
There is an urgency for the Watchmen on the Wall to come forth from your slumber and rise up to the position He has called you to! Not just on the wall of our church but the wall of the 4 corners of the earth (anywhere your feet carry you).
Few have been chosen as Watchmen.
The Holy Spirit showed me Friday night that so many of His Watchmen have been slumbering. He showed me dry bones. He showed me slumbering spirits. I then saw a city wall, brick, like a castle of sorts – and He showed me men and woman on the top of that wall standing guard, searching to and fro the horizon, looking for threats or any sign of coming danger or change in the atmosphere. These men and women were so focused on the task at hand that absolutely NOTHING could distract them from the job they had been assigned. (If you have ever had the experience of watching the soldiers guarding the tomb of unknown soldier at Arlington cemetery, this is the same focus I’m referring to).
He then showed me a Lion, magnificent, strong and mighty, majestic (Aslan) and this Lion began to roar like you have never heard before. When the Lion began to roar, the watchmen simultaneously began to blow their trumpets sounding the alarm and warning ‘It is time’. It was as though the roar of the Lion itself was breathing into the men and women and that breath was in turn sounding the alarm through the people standing watch. .
This is a warning to the Watchmen. Come forth! Man your battle stations! Open your eyes and ears and prepare for whats coming next! If you are laying in bed at midnight, tossing and turning trying to sleep because of a way too early day swiftly approaching and yet the thought to intercede is placed on your heart – don’t roll over and ignore it, start interceding even if you don’t know what you are praying for. The Holy Spirit will reveal it to you.
I have felt an urgency in my Spirit since Friday night, a stirring from deep within… a tempest, if you will to be ready and prepared. ‘No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, what is in store for His House and Christ Community that is about to rain down with a thundering roar’. Get Ready, the time is now!
Is He calling YOU??
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Watchman and His Message
33 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, 3 when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
7 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 9 Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
10 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: ‘Thus you say, “If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?”’ 11 Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’
Father God I pray for those you have called to be Watchmen on the Wall. Lord Jesus awake the slumbering spirits. Remove the scales from their eyes and ears to hear the instructions you have given them. Rise up warriors and intercessors! Awake and man the post you have been created for. Lord Jesus, spark that flame of desire and hunger to intercede for your children both lost and found. Father God stir up the flame. Breathe life into the dry bones. Father I know the time is near and now. Holy Spirit even now move to and fro stirring up that all consuming fire. Manifest Your Presence.
Day and Night- Night and Day I worship You. I wait on You Lord. You are Holy, Worthy, Righteous. Truth and Justice are You. Father, impart into those who are willing – a holy boldness to cry out in Your name. To intercede on behalf of Your children. Impart wisdom for those who desire and seek Your wisdom. Let your voice be heard throughout the earth today! Let us come falling at your feet, hungry to know You more and with desire to sound the alarm at a time such as this. I decree and declare into the darkness that Your Light will shine and darkness must flee at the presence of Light. I decree and declare YOU are the I AM!
In Jesus Holy, Precious Name. Amen.
