Will we ever see the breakthrough in the fulfillment of God’s Word concerning the peace, prosperity, and restoration of Israel and the Jewish people? The answer to that is absolutely yes and amen. We will see God fulfill His Word. The mockers say, “Where is the promise of His coming?” But we choose to be the watchmen that God Himself has appointed to say, “Lord, fulfill your promises today.”
We have been in the Isaiah 62 Fast, a time of fasting and prayer for Israel from May 7 until Pentecost (Shavuot) on May 28. Isaiah 62 of course is the main Scripture that people have been reading and praying over during this time. In this Scripture we read that the watchmen on the walls take no rest for themselves and give God no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth. What suddenly struck me in this passage is the fact that God appoints these watchmen.
This is not something that we do by ourselves with human strength and ability. It is something that God Himself is going to do. We are not making up prayers about Jerusalem, Israel, and His chosen people. These are things that God has spoken through the mouth of His prophets over millennia. What we do is believe the Lord to be appointed, to be commissioned, to be given this impartation from the Lord for a ministry of intercession to see His Word fulfilled.
We are the ones who are interceding, but it will not happen by our efforts. We are reminding the Lord of the Word that He spoke and of the things that He has promised that will be the future of Jerusalem and Israel. We will see these things accomplished because His Word will accomplish for His namesake what He has proclaimed. Believe to be one of those who are anointed to stand on the walls and cry out to God to see the peace of Jerusalem, the restoration of His prophecies to Israel, and the fulfillment of His Word in our day.
- Isaiah 62:6–12. “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen.”
- Psalm 122:6–9. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”
- Isaiah 55:6–13. “My word … will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire.”
- Jeremiah 33:1–22. “In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety.”
- 2 Peter 3:3–9. “The Lord is not slow about His promise.”
- “Lord, I ask that you appoint me as one of your watchmen. I ask that you commission me and anoint me as a watchman over the walls, over the peoples, over the prophecies that You’ve spoken about Jerusalem and about Israel.”
- “The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm. So the ability to see peace in Jerusalem, to see the fulfillment is the fact that God Himself has spoken it.”
- “I think it’s a time when the Word of God is opening up to us that we might see and behold what it really says about the fulfillment, the peace, and the breakthroughs that are just ahead for Jerusalem, for Israel, and the Jewish people.”
- It is God Himself who has appointed watchmen on the walls to remind Him of His Word over Jerusalem, Israel, and His chosen people. And His Word will be fulfilled by God Himself. Therefore, our intercession is not something we try to do in our own strength or ability to see these things accomplished.
- There are many prophecies and Words that God has given about His will for Israel and for the peace of Jerusalem that we are to see in the earth. Our intercession is to contend for Him to bring about what we already know He is going to do.
- God said that if you can stop the sun from rising and setting or prevent the order of day and night on the earth, then there is a possibility that the covenant with David can be broken. And we know that will never happen. So we should have faith to be His watchmen. We should cry out for the anointing of intercession to rest upon us that we see God move on behalf of His own namesake to fulfill all that He has spoken.
