The Opening of the Books

After John ate the book which was open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and the land, he was told to prophesy concerning many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings. This angel had brought the open book down out of heaven. (Revelation 10). Ezekiel also ate a scroll, and afterwards he was told to go the house of Israel and speak God's words to them. (Ezekiel 3:1-3). There are books in heaven which contain the destinies of people and nations. From these books, the purposes of God can be prophesied, causing them to happen.

"Lord, I ask for the books that are in heaven which record Your purposes for Waterford be opened. I (and anyone who prays this prayer from the heart) make myself available to receive Your words and Your will for Waterford. I want to know what was on Your mind as this parcel of land was being created. What did You envision? What was (and is) in Your heart concerning this land? What have You written down and decreed for Waterford--the people and the land?"

I've felt for many years now that Waterford is to be a place of hospitality. A place of refreshing where people travelling through can receive rest and encouragement--spiritually as well as physically and mentally. Recently I've seen His desire for unique businesses to rise. Businesses that meet basic, common needs in a creative and refreshing way. Yet it will remain primarily a place for families, with education and government supporting strong, godly families. These strong families will be the reason for strong churches in the region.
