"Regarding fears on possible threats against his life, the Holy Father said that he is in God's hands. "In my prayers I speak to the Lord and say: 'Look, if this has to be, then let I be, I only ask for one grace: that it may not hurt"; because I am a coward to physical pain. The moral pain I can withstand, but physical, no. I am very cowardly when it comes to that." Pope Francis

Jerusalem is the prize. That is what I say all along. Satan’s eyes are on Jerusalem, to destroy it and especially to turn it over into the hands of those who live in darkness. This would defeat the very plans of the heavenly Father who wishes to raise up Jerusalem as the center of world peace. All of this seems so far away but it is much closer than anyone can imagine.
The events will happen quickly. The Father will act before Satan’s plan is put into effect. He will not allow Jerusalem to fall again into darkness.
I will protect Jerusalem. How much I suffered there, watching my Son, Jesus, shed his blood. We both paid the greatest price to save that city and to redeem the world. God’s saving grace went forth from Jerusalem. That grace is still here – like a hidden spring whose waters can still flow out.
Yes, Jerusalem is filled with water, not just the natural water placed there by the Creator, but the supernatural living water of the Holy Spirit, placed there by Jesus. Other places in the world are holy because the living water has been placed there also. However, no other city has the deep springs of Jerusalem.
Living water can go out from a holy city to the people of that nation, but only the living waters of Jerusalem can reach the whole world. That is why Jerusalem is the prize.
