-- “A sign is posted outside the tall mahogany double
doors that silently echoes, ‘Quiet, please. Court is now
in session.’ Located just behind the thick, marble walls
of the court room chamber, divine deliberations are even now beginning
to take place.” This was the scene spoken of by a fellow
intercessor as she described what she was seeing in the spirit
Upon hearing her words, there was an unusual hush that began
to settle over the prayer warriors in the chapel that particular
morning. We all recognized the solemn moment, and with spiritual
eyes, we began to see that God’s court of appeals was now
beginning to move into session. We had been faithfully meeting
every day in order to seek the heart of God concerning the urgent

the faithful and fervent prayers of His saints!

for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your
father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have
come to royal position for such a time as this?"
