Saturday, October 29, 2011, was a historic day for the Israel Prayer Garden. Apostle Jay Swallow, Minister to Native America and our brother in the Lord Jesus Christ, joined us in the garden for a special declaration and presentation. Under a clear blue sky, our own Dee Dee Roberts, a member of the Cherokee tribe, read the following declaration from Apostle Jay:
“Under a mandate of the Holy Spirit, I now bring from invisible to visible a prophetic act pertaining to the future of all 568 Native Tribes of this hemisphere called America.
“In the guardianship of the Israel Prayer Garden and its many expressions of maintaining a watch in prayer and spiritual warfare for the Nation of Israel, and as First Nations of this country called America, we seek to add a more visual commitment to Israel by symbolically planting the wildflower called ‘Indian Blanket,’ an official wildflower representing the tribes of the Nation of America.
“As these seeds of commitment are prophetically sown in and around the plants representing the twelve tribes of Israel, our Native Tribes will be joined together in providing a ‘warrior watch,’ not only over the beloved Nation of Israel, but to provide the security over the many facets of prayer warriors that will come to pray and feel the blessed atmosphere coming from the Israel Prayer Garden.
“And, as a leader among the tribes, I give these seeds into the hands of the caretakers. Before spring of 2012, I will bring forth all the tribes official agreement to stand with Israel in her place in the Kingdom of God.”
Apostle Jay Swallow then presented me with a bag of seeds that will be planted strategically throughout the garden as a testimony of this commitment. Before we left the garden, Apostle Jay took authority, as a child of the King and a representative of America’s First People, over the weather patterns in our region. He declared a restoration of the natural order of rainfall essential to harvest and prosperity on the land. To which we all echoed, “Amen!”
And so, we will plant Indian Blanket seeds in November and wait for their blossoms next spring! Thank you, Apostle Jay Swallow, for these seeds of commitment.
