After completing the Watchmen on the Wall
curriculum and coming with us on a prayer pilgrimage
to Israel, participants are commissioned as Watchmen on the Wall
, with official recognition from the State of Israel, the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem leadership, and Eagles' Wings. If participants travel on the Feast of Tabernacles
trip, that commissioning will take place in a special ceremony in the city of Jerusalem.
To become a commissioned Watchman on the Wall
, you must complete the following...
- Read the Watchmen on the Wall Training Manual and complete the assignments at the end of each chapter.
- Listen to the Watchmen on the Wall Teaching CDs, Volumes 1 and 2 OR attend a Watchmen on the Wall Seminar near you.
- Watch one of the following documentary DVDs: Obsession OR Relentless OR The Third Jihad.
- Answer four short essay questions.
- Come with us on a prayer pilgrimage to Israel.
There is a high level of spiritual authority conferred upon a Watchman when Christian and Jewish religious leaders, as well as Israeli governmental leaders, officially commission a believer to be a Watchman for Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jewish people. They may not feel any different when they pray, and they may not sound any different, but to both heaven and hell, their prayers will have more layers of authority and more corporate weight behind them for breakthrough on behalf of Zion.
The actual commissioning service takes place in a strategic location, such as the rooftop of a Yeshiva overlooking the Western Wall or the Pavilion Prayer Tower in the heart of Jerusalem. Present at the ceremony are the Mayor of Jerusalem (or a key person from his office), members of the Israeli Knesset’s Christian Allies Caucus, key leaders from Eagles’ Wings and the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, as well as representatives from forerunner ministries in the land who support Judeo-Christian efforts. Participants will hear first-hand from these various leaders the gratitude of the people they represent as they are officially commissioned as Watchmen. In response – before G-d and man - they repeat the solemn oath of the Watchman, and walk forward to receive a special Watchman pin and signed certificate from these gatekeepers, commemorating their spiritual promotion.
After being commissioned, there are many opportunities for those individuals to continue to apply what they have learned. Through initiatives such as the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, Christians United for Israel, and Watchmen on the Wall Teacher certification, watchmen are able to take what they have learned and seen first-hand and become articulate ambassadors in their communities on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people.
