The Bible teaches us the watchman that when significant events and changes are shifting in the spiritual realm, the church on earth should be able to discern the signs and fast and pray to align with the heavenly changes. The difference between a church that has ear to hear the Holy Spirit and the one that has no ear, often lies in the way the respective church members live their prayer lives. Do they fast and pray as led by the Holy Spirit? Can they fast? How do they pray? Do a round of the churches’ prayer meetings you will know the answers.
There is no option really for churches regarding fast and pray. Esther was the queen of the most powerful empire then, but her countryman warned her on two things: She was made queen for this occasion when the whole Jewish people was in danger of being wiped out by the enemy; even if she decided not to respond to the calling of God, she and her own family would not be safe from the impending annihilation of the Jews.
Church, no option. Fast and pray. This is the call of the time. Be alert to this call and be a queen Esther!
Reblogged from AAA Jack’s blog (A Watchman on your walls): Watchman’s notes on 10th October, 2012: indeed it’s interesting and timely to read this blog today, as he is half way through a three days’ fast with no food and no water, i.e. total no intake. This is called “Esther fast”. How has he felt […]
The watchman and his class went through a miraculous weekend fasting the Esther Fast (three days without food or water) together in the sanctuary of God., some with variations (3 days with water; one or two days without food or water). For the watchman this was the first time without food and water for 72 […]
Reblogged from AAA Jack’s blog (A Watchman on your walls): The watchman learned from last year’s experience that the most difficult part is not drinking water. He can stand the not eating part but needs to really fortify against dehydration. He is one of those who do not take much plain water. So the tips […]
The watchman was led to fast the Esther fast, no food and no water, for three days towards the end of March. He gathered all those who regularly go to the Prayer House and two families who come to his Bible reading house class weekly, urging them to start preparing for the fast. He knew […]
Esther 3 (KJV) 1After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him. 2And all the king’s servants, that were in the king’s gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. […]
It was an ordinary evening service but at the end of it, a woman came to the front and gave a testimony. This was the same woman who had come often for prayers to be delivered from one financial problem that became a heavy yoke on her neck. She did not know how to pray […]
The watchman heard, “Is this the fasting I want? No, you are not fasting for Me. You are fasting for yourself.” “ Is this not the fast that I have chosen : To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?” […]
Watchman’s notes on 10th October, 2012: indeed it’s interesting and timely to read this blog today, as he is half way through a three days’ fast with no food and no water, i.e. total no intake. This is called “Esther fast”. How has he felt so far? He stood well and managed to do some […]
Dear Junior: (a watchman/intercessor who started young) Greeting to you in peace. The following sharing is also for the benefit of those aspiring to be watchman/intercessor. The end times watchman was admonished lately after he had moved away from his Mount of Olives attic for sometime, giving way to some overseas visitors. The visitors had returned […]
This is a record of events experienced by a brethren in Christ during and after a recent Esther fast (three days ultimate fast without food or water). 1. The fast was urged by the Spirit of the Lord, whose urgent prompting was received around 23-24th February. But there was a delay in the intended fast […]
This message continues from the previous one about the power of the ultimate fast before God. The king’s heart was reversed. This is a powerful petition for a life and death issue for a queen and all her people -God’s own people. (Take note of the letters the watchman had made bold as led by […]
The watchman’s update on 11-4-2012: The time has indeed come to pass. it is still going on. the Black Horse is out! the Spirit of the Lord spoke to the watchman on 10-19-2012. He was first alerted to call for an Esther Fast (absolute fast with no food and no water for three days) on […]
