2012 has turned out to be a year of impossible changes. To men it was impossible. To God nothing is impossible. So the watchman has observed.
The watchman did considerable watching through out the year albeit
missing the signs completely at certain crucial moments. He paid for
such costly omissions.
The following are some examples of how some signs
were ignored or were accurately heeded:
1. When someone wanted to give a large sum of money to help to bail
out a church member, believing that the Holy Spirit has told her to do
so, the watchman received a warning in the words of God. His Bible
turned to 'Judas Iscariot' at least twice at that time. He did not
persuade the person not to give the money because he did not want to be
accused of presuming that others could not hear the Holy Spirit
accurately. So they went ahead. The condition was that the person went
for healing and deliverance after her bail-out. It did not happen. In
his latest journey to see God, he again interceded for the person when
the Lord showed him the word ‘Judas Iscariot’ (Mark 3:19) while praying
in the Spirit with another intercessor. At the end of the prayer, the
other intercessor told him not to intercede for that person again as the
case would be closed on 31-12-2012 if that person does not repent by
that date. This requires a miracle as 31st December is only a day away.
2. On the other hand, he did the appropriate intercession when
prompted by the Lord while praying in the Spirit on that same occasion.
He saw the verse on ‘Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Mark 3:29) and
the name of a pastor came to his spirit. So he interceded for that
pastor. When he finished praying the intercessor told him the case broke
through. He was happy and relieved. He walked by faith and not by
3. In another case the signs were very clear, as they built up in
momentum over a short period of months. He received the clear verse to
depart from a 'place of worship' on 30th June 2012. He hesitated but
events soon took place at an accelerated rate to confirm the signs
(which came to him in the Bible words). Others received similar warning
words too and conveyed to him. Dreams, visions and words combined
through revelation received by a few persons gave him the final leading
Spiritual discernment is a absolute must for a spiritual watchman
intercessor. It requires faith. it also takes time. The watchman is
thankful that throughout the journey he had access to other watchmen and
intercessors. Their prayers and advice indeed helped him to avoid some
pitfalls. He has been humbled and had to make adjustments in his
He has learned that the Lord demands the best. Knowing the Lord is
the number one priority for all watchmen. There is no substitution for
reading God’s word (the Bible). Living by the Spirit and being led by
the Spirit (as required of all sons of God) require obedience and
constant practice too.
He was led to read the Bible from the beginning to see God. The Old
Testament characters provide rich food for his spiritual journey. His
lifestyle changes mainly involved redistribution of time: sleep time,
wake time, eat time, fast time, Bible reading and meditating time,
praying in the Spirit and singing in the Spirit time, praying in
understanding time, discipleship time and teaching time, worship time
and time spent before God. The changes involve quality change and
quantity change as well. His life has never been so fulfilled before.
Overall he would describe the year 2012 as a year of signs and
wonders for his little world. He has been comforted by the Lord in
answered prayers (including undeserved favor and mercy) for some of his
own family members and also blessings for the few families who worship
with him and diligently seek God even at odd hours, determined to know
God at all costs!
