“Jerusalem Inhabited as Towns Without Walls . . .”

Excavations at the City of David

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.

How I thank God for the confirmation that followed this revelation. First, a Messianic Pastor in Jerusalem told me he had the same vision. He was standing on the Mount of Olives when he, too, saw the band of angels on the mountains surrounding Jerusalem. Shortly after, our Bishop over the African meetings which were going on in Kenya, wrote to say that he, too, had a vision of angels on the mountains surrounding the city.

May this be a time not only of external peace, but of internal as well…peace for people that the walls within their hearts might come down, a time when they are prepared to receive their God, that they might say, “Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.” Those of us already saved know that Name above all names, the beautiful name of Jesus, Yeshua, our Messiah and King.

So, to you Jerusalem I say:

Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory. Selah

Psalm 24:7-10, NKJV
