One of the most beautiful cities in our country still has remains of a great wall that once surrounded the city to protect the people from their enemies. It is said that “the fortress walls once ran 4.5 – 5 kilometers long with 28 watch towers and 8 gates. Each tower of the fortress was named after the nearest village, so that the residents of this village knew where to hide in case of danger and which tower they were to defend.” (Cora V.)
How did they know when their enemy was approaching? There were men who stood watch. Just as in Old Testament times, as it says in Isaiah 62:6, “O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray day and night, continually. Take no rest, all you who pray to the LORD.”
Praise God for those who have been willing to commit to being watchmen on the walls for us and the people of Green Mountains. Thank you for praying for protection from the enemy. If you haven’t joined us yet, please do–we need you!
