So anointed! So powerful! So real! And so timely! With Israel in the headlines this week, the concessions being made by giving up land in exchange for peace that only her prophesied Messiah can bring, your story is genuinely prophetic. So much so, infact, that it is as if it has been taken from the journals of those whose prophetic voice is speaking forth the warnings from the Spirit of Yahweh. May we never cease to Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim!
This is not just an awesome story, but it is a powerful reminder of our need to pray for Israel. Your creative pen was certainly annointed in writing this piece.
Fantastic writing and message! The Holy Spirit was the undisputed leader of the early NT church. When I express my concern to Christian friends that the post-modern church is in trouble because of heedlessness to His leading, some seem dubious.

I've read it three times now and still have not been able to comment. Yes, anointed! Thou art a prophet, indeed. I just want to say, "Amen." And bathe in the presence of the Lord. God bless.
I really don't know what to say. This is very bold. It's beautifully written, and packs such a powerful message. Excellent.

Oh my goodness. My breath stopped. It is rare that I cannot think of words good enough to describe how this made me feel.

This packs a powerful and timely message for the U.S. and the church. We're so complacent at the moment, in every way.

Heart-pounding and cinematic--needs to be made into a movie, for sure!

FYI: "eminent" means "important"; "imminent" means "sure to happen soon". Not a biggie, just something I thought you'd like to know.

Love the idea of the gift being passed from generation to generation. Strong story!

I thought the writing was fantastic and loved the generational aspect to the story. Even with a great deal of discomfort with the theology of the plot (for me), your gift of writing pushes a reader through.
