The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Miracles in the Middle East

pictures of Guilda Ayoub and her towel

Guilda is a 16-year-old girl from 'Imar' village situated near Zgharta, North Lebanon. Guilda watched the film of 'Passion of the Christ ' on Good Friday on 4 June 2007. Before Guilda went to sleep that night she told her mother she didn't believe that Jesus suffered all that pain. That night she dreamt of having a cross on her hand but the next day she woke up and did not have anything on her hand. She went to school and as she was telling her friend about it, she felt something pulling her hand backwards and putting it on the wall behind her. Her hand was stuck on the wall and no one could take it off.. When her hand eventually came of the wall a cross was printed on her hand with a wound in the middle as if from a nail. Blood samples were taken from the wound on her hand. The tests determined that the blood that was coming out of her hand has no blood group. Some sort of oil was also on her hand.

Saint Charbel has talked to her many times and he has given her messages. One of the messages concerns Lebanon but he asked her not to tell what he said until he tells her.

St Charbel lived in the hermitage for 23 years. On December 16th, 1898 he was struck with an illness while performing the holy mass. He died on Christmas' eve, December 24th, 1898, and was buried in the St Maron monastery cemetery in Annaya.

Few months later, dazzling lights were seen around the grave. From there, his corpse, which had been secreting sweat and blood, was transferred into a special coffin. Pilgrims started swarming the place to get his intercession. And through this intercession, God blessed many people with recovery and spiritual graces.

In 1925, his beatification and canonization were proposed for declaration by Pope Pious XI. In 1950, the grave was opened in the presence of an official committee which included doctors who verified the soundness of the body. After the grave had been opened and inspected, a variety of healing incidents occurred. A multitude of pilgrims from different religions come to the Annaya monastery to get Saint Charbel's intercession.

Guilda still has pain in her hand and it is still bleeding from time to time.

Yeshua is at work all across the Middle East. Many people are reporting dreams and visions involving Yeshua. Despite tyrannical governments Christianity is spreading. Yeshua said the gates of hell would not prevail against his church and it would prevail for all time.

A myriad of events are occurring around the world, some for the first time in human history. I do not think these events are an accident. The Lord is sending a message for each of us to prepare ourselves.

17 In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'[a]
22 "Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.
23 This man was handed over to you by God's set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,[b] put him to death by nailing him to the cross.
24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.
25 David said about him: " 'I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope,
27 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
28 You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.'[c]
29 "Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day.
30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne.
31 Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ,[d] that he was not abandoned to the grave, nor did his body see decay.
32 God has raised this Yeshua/Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.
33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.
34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said, " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand
35 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." '[e]
36 "Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." Acts 2:17-36
a. Acts 2:21 Joel 2:28-32
b. Acts 2:23 Or of those not having the law (that is, Gentiles)
c. Acts 2:28 Psalm 16:8-11
d. Acts 2:31 Or Messiah. "The Christ" (Greek) and "the Messiah" (Hebrew) both mean "the Anointed One"; also in verse 36.
e. Acts 2:35 Psalm 110:1
