I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night.
Isaiah 62:6God is calling the Nations to become watchmen (shomrim) on the walls of Jerusalem. If you ever visited this amazing city, you would have seen the ancient walls surrounding the Old City of Jerusalem. In biblical times there were actual watchmen on these walls observing and looking out for possible dangers, serving as protectors of the city and its inhabitants. God is using Jewish believers in Israel, as well as Christians around the world, like yourself, to serve as watchmen on the walls of the nation of Israel. Ezekiel was a prophet in Babylon, far away from his land, yet God placed him as a watchman on the walls of Jerusalem.
He said: “Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites.
Ezekiel 2:3Despite the great distance that separated Ezekiel from the land of Israel, his calling was clear: he was to become a watchman on the walls of Jerusalem, regardless of where he was. God took him in the spirit to the Temple, to the Holy of holies, showed him amazing things, then said: “go and proclaim what you saw.” The same applies to you. Regardless of where you live in the world, God has called you to be His watchmen on the walls of his holy city and nation. You are called to bring the knowledge of God to the nation of Israel, by becoming its watchmen — Shomrim. One of the most important callings today remains the same one as many years ago; God still calls us to be His watchmen and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as well as for the revival of the nation of Israel. Israel needs salvation and the power of God. Its biggest current need is revival! Especially in such troubled times as the ones we’re living in when people of Israel are plagued with anxiety and fear instilled in them through Covid. This nation is facing its biggest challenge yet. Listen to this special message from Pastor Israel that gives an update and a powerful insight into the current situation in Israel, and how you can truly step into your calling to be a watchman on the walls of His nation in the most crucial time in history.
