South Africa, for a time such as this…

I woke up this morning with Isaiah 33 burning in my heart and knew I had to read it. Upon reading it, it became clear to me the Lord was speaking about our country…

…having just moved to the Cape I haven’t put my map up yet, but isn’t God amazing how He will get His message through no matter what. Having just had the burning in Parliament I feel there is no co-incidence in the timing of this message, Father knows His plan and is going to achieve it, no matter what man feels, whether it works for man or any other situation at hand…

Isaiah 33:

Distress and Help

33 vs 1 ‘Woe to you, O destroyer,
    you who have not been destroyed!
Woe to you, O betrayer,
    you who have not been betrayed!
When you stop destroying,
    you will be destroyed;
when you stop betraying,
    you will be betrayed.’

I felt the Lord say the time of our destruction is over, in government, in and amongst the people of South Africa. The time of our betrayal of leaders who are supposed to be taking care of our people and yet, instead, sadly, plunder the country, this time is over. The Lord says to those people who have been involved in these actions, “The time is up, you have a last chance, repent and make right, come clean and you will be vindicated. Remain as you are and you will be destroyed, remain as you are and you will be plundered. You have had control of my people long enough, you have had reign and reigned destruction over my people long enough. What now for my government of South Africa, you thought you had rule and reign and I have allowed you to show your true colours to my people in South Africa but, from this day forth your witchcraft and debauchery are over and done with, from this day forth, no longer will you or any of your secret magical arts have any control over this country. You will see the people you once thought to be powerful and in control as if no one was able to stop their hands from coming in and taking over as and when they desired. You will see them falling over as a chess piece on a board, where the player has surrendered. It will be a time of great ‘surrendering’ of power as my people will be established. There are those who were mislead, made bad choices, mistakes and may well be forgiven and re-purposed for me, but there are those who were wicked to the core and will be removed and utterly destroyed and plundered, as was their plan for this country. South Africa I have great plans for you, South Africans you have a choice to make, you are welcome to join along with the plans I have, repent of whatever part you have had, big or small, verbal or physically plundering the country, repent. Now is the time of cleansing, the great and mighty hand of your God is about to be felt in every level of government, every level of society, for as that fire swept through Parliament and cleansed the very floors of the house, so shall I, your heavenly Father, be coming in and blowing over those chess pieces, I will be blowing through the corridors of Parliament and every government building, department, association and organisation and removing with Me the chaff that have sat in seats of consumption and disregarded Me, My people and My nation. No nation in the world belongs to its people, each was established and maintained by Me, as soon as you acknowledge and appreciate that you will be able to make it prosper. Give God the glory and all else will fall in place.’

Isaiah 33:2 – Let this be our battle cry, daily, the Lord will take care of the rest:

‘Lord, be gracious to us;
    we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
    our salvation in time of distress.
At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee;
    when you rise up, the nations scatter.
Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts;
    like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it.

The Lord is exalted, for he dwells on high;
    he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness.
He will be the sure foundation for your times,
    a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge;
    the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.[a]

Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets;
    the envoys of peace weep bitterly.
The highways are deserted,
    no travelers are on the roads.
The treaty is broken,
    its witnesses[b] are despised,
    no one is respected.
The land dries up and wastes away,
    Lebanon is ashamed and withers;
Sharon is like the Arabah,
    and Bashan and Carmel drop their leaves.’

I hear the Lord say, “South Africa, it is here, where you are broken and have no where else to go, that is where I start, I come in when it is clear that only by a miracle would you have been able to make the change, would the country be able to turn from its trajectory, that is where I come in, that is when I work best. Now you will see the hand of the Lord sweep through your Parliament, you will see the hand of the Lord take over, there will be a clear recognition by ‘those who have an ear’, who is being changed, removed, replaced and completely and utterly destroyed from their place of power, influence and the magnitude of what they have done will come to light. This is the time of the light to shine on and over South Africa and the nations of the world as I am exposing the lies, destruction, betrayal of those you thought you trusted, those you thought of as leaders and ‘caregivers / caretakers’ of the country and it’s people. Now, what you have suspected for some time will become clear as day, there will no longer be speculation but absolute decisive proof of who, what, how and why the plots have been planned, when and where and by whom, you will not wonder any longer. South Africa now is the time:

Isaiah 60 promises:

“1Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”

This is what the Lord says He will do at this time, if you want to be part of it, read on for here is how: Isaiah 33

10 “Now will I arise,” says the Lord.
    “Now will I be exalted;
    now will I be lifted up.
11 You conceive chaff,
    you give birth to straw;
    your breath is a fire that consumes you.
12 The peoples will be burned to ashes;
    like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.”

13 You who are far away, hear what I have done;
    you who are near, acknowledge my power!
14 The sinners in Zion are terrified;
    trembling grips the godless:
“Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire?
    Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?”
15 Those who walk righteously
    and speak what is right,
who reject gain from extortion
    and keep their hands from accepting bribes,
who stop their ears against plots of murder
    and shut their eyes against contemplating evil—
16 they are the ones who will dwell on the heights,
    whose refuge will be the mountain fortress.
Their bread will be supplied,
    and water will not fail them.

17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty
    and view a land that stretches afar.
18 In your thoughts you will ponder the former terror:
    “Where is that chief officer?
Where is the one who took the revenue?
    Where is the officer in charge of the towers?”
19 You will see those arrogant people no more,
    people whose speech is obscure,
    whose language is strange and incomprehensible.

20 Look on Zion, the city of our festivals;
    your eyes will see Jerusalem,
    a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved;
its stakes will never be pulled up,
    nor any of its ropes broken.
21 There the Lord will be our Mighty One.
    It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams.
No galley with oars will ride them,
    no mighty ship will sail them.
22 For the Lord is our judge,
    the Lord is our lawgiver,
the Lord is our king;
    it is he who will save us.

23 Your rigging hangs loose:
    The mast is not held secure,
    the sail is not spread.
Then an abundance of spoils will be divided
    and even the lame will carry off plunder.
24 No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”;
    and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.’

Wow, wow, wow, what an amazing promise from the Lord, the word is clear, the Lord is clearing out, we have a choice of whose side we will be on and as usual, He is gracious and giving us fair warning… we have time to repent before He comes to clean out and we have the opportunity to be hidden under His great grace before the clearing out…

Thank You God for Your amazing grace… it’s becoming a bit of a cliché… but I know which side I will be on…
