An international evangelist and teacher, Neil Gamble of Spokane, WA, recently visited Yazoo Ciity. At the community Thanksgiving service, he had a vision of a wall surrounding Yazoo City. The wall represented the spirit of poverty. Beyond the wall was a body of water. He saw a crack in the wall.
He said, “Lord, what is that crack in the wall?”
The Lord replied, “The crack is caused by the declarations of the saints.”
Then the saints continued to declare, the crack expanded, the wall fell down, and the water came rushing into the city.
Jeremiah 2:13 (ESV)
for my people . . . have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters . . .
John 7:37-39 (ESV)
On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Our Father in heaven,
How many ways have we forsaken You? We confess that we have sinned, and our city forefathers have sinned. Lord, have mercy, for we believe in Your Son Jesus.
Father, Your name is holy. Your name is Jehovah-jireh. We declare Your name over Yazoo City, and we decree that the wall of poverty must fall! Bring in a harvest of souls and a harvest of abundance! Amen.
