God Speaks to His Chosen
O Jerusalem, O Jerusalem, how I weep for you that you might come to repentance and bow before me. Your walls are broken and your gates are unattended. Look up for your redemption draws close, closer than you think. I will send fire into your mist. Your old men shall fall, and your young men shall cry out for mercy. Blood will run in your streets, and the children shall hide in the corners. You have slain my men of wisdom sent to you and called them false, but I am the one to whom you will answer. I am the one who holds and upholds all things. What will you say then? What will you do? Come unto me, O Jerusalem, and I will give you rest. Abide in my camp, and you will have plenty. Your winepresses will burst out with new wine, and your barns will have abundant grain. There will be no lack for the Lord will be your supply. Hearken unto me all you who have an ear for I speak and the earth trembles. I speak and the lightning comes. I will strike down the evil and uphold the good. Sounds of weeping and despair will be in your ears. Hearken to my voice, and you will have life and life more abundantly.
(Note: Natural Jerusalem is the capital city of the nation of Israel but spiritual Jerusalem is the Church as shown in Hebrews 12:22-23. Hence this prophetic word applies to the Church today, as well as the capital of Israel.)
