“I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, and give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth,” Isaiah 62:6-7.
During the inception of this Word, The Holy Spirit kept showing me an old stone wall and fortress.
I watched as a few approached some old stone steps and then began to climb them.
This person then approached what was a walk way at the top and here was a look out.
Beside this person was the Lord Himself, and He offered the man a telescope. This man took the telescope and looked out across the land.
The LORD motioned for him to look further into the distance. And as he did, he began to see movement way off into the distance.
Here there were dark figures crawling across the ground, almost hidden from view. All was dark, for it was not yet dawn, but way off into the distance a light could be seen.
The vision then faded.
“Set a watch upon the walls. The watchmen have left their post, and the enemy is coming and yet none can see him.
For even now the enemy creeps along your border, and yet my watchmen are too busy with their own affairs.
For some seem to have other affairs in mind for themselves. For there are many gaps in the wall now.
There are many holes that have been left unattended to. But for those who are still there, I say to remain at your post. For the nation needs you.
Will you suffer to allow the enemy to come in?
Do you not see him in the distance?
For some of My Watchmen have become blind to these things. They think that their new leader will solve the many problems that are around them.
I tell you that you are blind to the problems. Go back to your post and look out again.
But you must allow Me to give you eyes to see.
Thus would say: The Spirit of The LORD.”
