word of God has much to say about walls. From the wall of Jericho,
to the wall around Jerusalem, and the wall in Jesus' parable, to
the Lord Himself being the wall around the new Jerusalem. Walls
have different purposes. They keep within, and keep out. The enemies
are kept out and can be seen from the distance on the walls, so
the inhabitants inside can be warned in time. The walls protect
them from the enemy. In the Scripture above, the Lord promises Jeremiah
to protect him, to make him an unsurmountable wall, for the Lord
is His Rescuer. In Zechariah He speaks about the future Jerusalem,
how God Himself will be its wall of fire, with His glory within.
That reminds me of the vision I had last year, where I saw the fire
of God approaching me and the people behind me. I'm not gonna tell
the details but in the end His fire and glory surrounded us, and
the enemy had no chance of penetrating.
Ezekiel we see the Lord looking for intercessors who would build
walls of protection in the spiritual realm. I've been called to
build walls of protection for my children, and all those the Lord
has entrusted me with. That also necessitates building walls in
the natural. While we want to be an oasis in the desert, a habitation
for the glory of the Lord that will draw many into His kingdom,
we also need to protect our children and the work of the Lord.

we can then build the first of the two houses of the first phase
which needs to be done by the end of September when

Visiting Girls - All four are enjoying their time with

Please pray for their remaining time with us.
