21. God's Word over South Africa

My dearest South Africa. How My heart longs for you. People have gone astray, even those claiming to be righteous. The cry to 'turn back' had an impact for a while, but My people returned to following their own ways. Hatred is prevalent, and not only amongst those that actually act upon it. Negative speech is mostly what comes from people's lips; don't you yet realise that life and death is in the power of the tongue? Corruption has infiltrated all levels of society and people do not even think it is wrong anymore. Laws are broken on a daily basis and not only by criminals, but by many so-called Christians, either cheating on their tax return or driving over red lights.

The time has come for My children to stand up and live in the truth about themselves. I came to set you free from bondage; I came to liberate the captives. I came to give you My righteousness as a gift to take. I came to create a new person inside of you. I came to make all things new. Stand up in the newness of life that is proclaimed over you. This newness of life is what you are destined for. Come and sit at My right hand, come and let Me teach you. Give your life over to Me and allow My love to flow through you. Allow more of Me to fill you, allow My life to infiltrate every cell of your being. Once I am the One you focus on and the One you follow, all else will start to fall into place. You will start to focus your sights on the realities of heaven; you will start to live in a realm that is above your own. You will start to look at life through My eyes. My love will start to flow through you to others. You will shower them with My love and it won't be hard for you to do, because it will be Me flowing through you, My mighty power changing lives.

You will obey the laws of the land, because I am a God of order living inside of you. You will speak life and not death, because My river of life-giving water is bubbling on the inside of you. You will not be corrupt, because money will have no hold over you anymore. You will start to realise that all I have is yours, and because it is, you are rich without measure. You will bubble over with My goodness and share My Good News with your children and family, not as a set of rules and do's and don'ts, but as a way of life. My love bubbling within you will cause your children to fall in love with Me as well. There is so much power in families praying together and when you are filled with Me, it will flow out of you. You will also radiate Me on the sports field, whilst talking politics, while at work, whilst doing homework. I will shine and you will start to glow.

That is what I want for South Africa. People on fire for Me. People living in My realm. People filled with Me. People overflowing with My love. Then I see a river, springing up from sources all around the country, trickling up, joining one another, flowing into a bigger stream, flowing into yet another stream, flowing into a river, into a mighty river, until the dam walls break and deliverance comes to all. Only My life-giving water can do that. Only My bubbling spring can accomplish wonders. And it all starts with one soul, ready to give his life over to Me. There are many more than 10 souls in this country who are prepared to do that, I know. I wouldn't have destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah if there were ten righteous people. And today I proclaim that I will not destroy South Africa, because there are more than ten. I want to be merciful, but more than that I want to bless you. But it is in your hands. Are you going to come to Me? Are you going to drink Me in? Come, I have the life-giving water, come and drink. Then you will be like trees alongside the riverbank, always green and always full of life. Take hold of that life and spread it all around, just there where you are. People need to see My love in action, and as My hands and feet, you are the perfect vessel.

Also stand and proclaim victory over your enemy the Devil. He is in charge of all that is evil and his plans are filled with strife and hardship. Stand up against him and proclaim My victory. Be like David that proclaimed victory over Goliath as he approached him. Proclaim that I am in charge, proclaim that I am fighting for you and you will see wonders. Stand somewhere today and proclaim this over 'Goliath' in South Africa:

"You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the Name of the Lord Almighty - the God of the armies of Israel (South Africa), whom you have defied. Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head (spiritually we have overcome the Devil because of the work of Christ). And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel (South Africa)! And everyone will know that the Lord does not need weapons to rescue His people. It is His battle, not ours. The Lord will give you to us!" 1 Samuel 17:45-47

Rejoice! I am in charge. Be filled with wonder at My mighty power. I am the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the One who loves to love. I am your Bridegroom, eagerly looking forward to our wedding day. Be filled with anticipation, look up to Me, and fall in love with Me all over again. Then My love will change it all. My love will free South Africa from all bondage, My love flowing through you, will bring healing and restoration.

"This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don't be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God's. You will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord's victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem (South Africa). Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out there tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!" 2 Chronicles 20:15, 17

    Dis 'n kragtige en inspirerende boodskap. Dankie Ilze. Hou veral van die woord uit Kronieke wat se ons moet ons posisie inneem (in Christus), dan stilstaan en God se oorwinning beleef.

    Thank you for echoing what many christians in SA feel at this very time that we need to stand up, humble ourselves before the Lord and proclaim victory over the "Goliaths" facing us in our individual lives as well as a country. The miracle of the peaceful transition in SA in 1994 was largely because of this process - we currently need such a concerted effort from all dedicated christians in our country.
