"O Jerusalem, I have set intercessors on your walls who cry to God all day and night for the fulfilllment of his promises"! ISA. 62:6-7 TLB
Hallelujah! Another golden key to those unanswered prayers! The glorious news I bring to you today: Your TBN has opened up a new partnership for a 24/7 prayer altar in Jerusalem!
My dear nephew, Rick Ridings, has been opening up prayer centers in the Middle East with headquarters in the Mount Zion area of Old Jerusalem. From this vantage point you are a stone’s throw from the ancient Western Wall, also known as the "Wailing Wall." This wall is all that is left of the original Temple built by King Solomon where devout Jews and Christians keep unceasing prayers for Jerusalem, for Messiah to come, plus any number of other prayer needs and requests. In fact, some prayer slips are regularly pressed into the cracks between the wall’s huge stone blocks. I have stood there many times and felt the presence of God who promised —
"Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place." II Chron. 7:15 KJV
God goes on to say —
“that my name may be there forever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.” II Chron. 7:16b KJV
Yes, and even though the Great Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, the glory of God still abides there just as God promised; and yes, you can still feel His presence radiating from that ancient wall! Praise the Lord! Actually, God commands His people to pray there —
“Take no rest, all you who pray, and give God no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes her respected and admired throughout the earth.” Isa. 62:7 TLB
What a glorious place to pray and to send our prayer requests! Since most of our TBN partners may not be able to go to Jerusalem, we will provide special transportation for your prayer requests to be sent to our new altar of prayer there near the Western Wall.
So, let us all, as also commanded: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: They shall prosper that love thee.” Psa. 122:6 KJV
Ah, dear partners — the glory of God is falling there in the Middle East, just as the prophet Joel predicted, "upon all flesh"! My nephew, Rick, sent us a video testimony from a young Jewish man who had an actual visitation by Jesus Himself! The young man said he began to shake as the power of God touched him. He fell to his knees and received Jesus Christ as personal Savior! Of course, we rejoice over such a testimony; but, dear partners, these kinds of reports and testimonies are increasing at a phenomenal pace! It seems in many countries where the Christian faith has been literally banned and locked out that God, Himself, is breaking man-made barriers and is personally appearing to hungry souls! Yes, hungry souls that have found no peace or satisfaction in the many false, man-made religions and idols.
Dear, dear partners — do you see it? Remember the old country adage, "Make hay while the sun shines"! Another was, "Strike now while the iron is hot"! Surely this is the final harvest. Many years ago, there was a great evangelist by the name of Rodney "Gypsy" Smith. He was greatly criticized for preaching on the joy of the Holy Spirit and the soon return of Jesus for His bride. Gypsy’s answer to the critics was, "If I am dreaming, let me dream on!" Well, dear partners, we are not dreaming any more — we are facing stark reality as the Harvest pours in thanks, in part, to our united prayers, love and satellite TV worldwide!
Jan and I love you, now, 36 years long and strong! We need you now more than ever to keep this great Voice on the air, bringing in this final Harvest. Your prayers and love gifts are what keep us going, even in these twilight days of our lives. We will be looking for your letter and love gift of support — as you hear the precious promise of God to all of us:
"Tell my people, I, the Lord your God, am coming to save you and will bring you many gifts. And they shall be called ‘The Holy People’ and ‘The Lord’s Redeemed.’" Isa. 62:11-12 TLB
PRAISE THE LORD!
P.S. Begin sending your special prayer requests from now on. It will be our joy to send them on to Jerusalem where the prayer partners there will join us here for the answer to that special need! God bless us all!
