I feel eerie when I think of last weekend, Mother's Day, and how I received a bouquet of roses that turned into a prophetic message.
My daughter carefully unwrapped the store bought flowers as I filled my vase with water. She whispered the Peace Rose is her favorite and that's why she chose it for me. As healthy as the bunch of roses were, we noticed one stem that lost its flower head as soon as we lifted it. My daughter had an idea. She carried it from the kitchen to my office and placed the lone Peace rose next to my desktop with hopes the flower would cheer me as I worked in that room.
She positioned the Peace rose on my Jerusalem plaque.
The next day brought a historical event both in Israel and the USA when President Trump moved the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I felt jubilant as I watched the event on my computer screen. I celebrated Israel’s 70th birthday from afar and smiled when I viewed the dancing in the streets along with signs of gratitude waving at cameras.
Hours after the embassy presentation, the terrorists attacked and the media misinformed the public with lies of Israel killing their Palestinian Gaza neighbors when clearly they were defending their borders. I watched in amazement when I read the social media posts of people visiting Israel whom I trust and they revealed the truth. Eight-one percent of the killed were terrorists!
I felt angry that misrepresentation occurred after a wonderful victory. Clearly Scripture states in Genesis 17: 7-8:
“I will prepare an agreement between me and you. This agreement will also be for your descendants. It will continue forever. I will be your God and the God of all your descendants. I will give this land to you and to all your descendants. I will give you the land you are traveling through, the land of Canaan. I will give you this land forever, and I will be your God.”
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
