7 Troubles have come again and again, sounding like waterfalls.
Your waves are crashing all around me.
8 The Lord shows his true love every day.
At night I have a song,
and I pray to my living God.
9 I say to God, my Rock,
“Why have you forgotten me?
Why am I sad
and troubled by my enemies?”
10 My enemies’ insults make me feel
as if my bones were broken.
They are always saying,
“Where is your God?”
11 Why am I so sad?
Why am I so upset?
I should put my hope in God
and keep praising him,
my Savior and my God.
Psalm 42:7-11, NCV
The remainder of Psalm 42 is fascinating. It continues to carry us through many issues, that could be regarded as a challenge. I must…

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
Hebrews 12:22-24 ESV
My dear watchmen, how have we not seen this??? Is this not clearly a rapture passage? When is it that we will come to the heavenly Mount Zion and the city of the living God? When do we enter our chambers, the ones that Jesus has been preparing for us in the Heavenly Jerusalem? When will we attend a festal gathering? When will the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven assemble? Surely this is describing the rapture!
Mount Zion and the Heavenly City of Jerusalem

DECLARATIONS & DECREES: THE REWARD FOR THE RIGHTEOUS IS FROM THE LORD!
February 10, 2019 – Psalms 1:1-6; 125:1-5; Proverbs 14:32-34; Isaiah 54:9-17 (NASB)
Psalm 125:1-5: 1 Those
who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides
forever. 2As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord
surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. 3For
the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous, so
that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong.
4Do good, O Lord, to those
who are good and to those who are upright in their hearts. 5But
as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, the Lord will lead them away
with the doers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.
4The wicked are not so, but
they are like chaff which the wind…

16 As the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD, and she despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD and set it in its place, inside the tent that David had pitched for it. And David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD. 18 And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts

“If you build it, he will come.”
For the second consecutive week, the Eye of Prophecy article begins with another legendary citation, ranked number 39 on the 100 most iconic film quotes designated by the American Film Institute.
Do you recognize the line? What was built and who was it that came when it was built? Do you know the name of the movie?
You are correct if you said: Field of Dreams.
This fantasy drama sports film was released in 1989 starring Kevin Costner, Amy Madigan, James Earl Jones, and Burt Lancaster in his final role before he died. Nominated for three academy awards, including Best Picture, it is one of my two favorite sports movies. The other is The Natural (Robert Redford, Glenn Close, and Robert Duvall).
If you watched the movie, then you remember that Kevin Costner’s character, Ray Kinsella, heard a mysterious voice telling him…
