I see the Catholic Church coming under scrutiny. There are some policies that are changing and the changes will be criticized because it is against tradition, catholic churches outside of Europe are especially going to be critical, but the people will be behind the changes. The change coming in the Catholic Church are not necessary bringing revival but definitely opening them up for the flow of the Holy Spirit.

I see light houses popping up right across north America and the people rising up against the lies that the enemy has placed them under. There is a freedom of Christianity that is starting to move and an old value system that is being re installed.
Towards the north of the Equator there is a lying spirit that has been let loose and has been there for years. It is seen as clever to lie and scheme. The Lord is addressing this and people are looking at themselves and are having guilty feelings about lying. They have seen that the fruit of their lies has not been good and now there is a new move to be truthful and face the consequences of the truth. They always thought the truth would cause them problems and would not give them what they wanted. The lies never got them what they wanted for in any case and the Lord is addressing that lying spirit in the people.
There have been forays into diplomacy with China. Others have tried to enter in but there has been such a wall between Eastern thinking and Western thinking, that the West still does not really have the key for China yet. The Lord will show specific people a subtle way to get into China. The Lord will use the gospel to reach the people. It is the gospel that is going to turn the hearts of the people back to something else besides their own nation and country. They have turned themselves and their nation into a god and they will see that there is another God. Only the gospel can set them free.
People are fearful of going into China with the gospel. There is an innate fear in Christians about China. They do not easily become missionaries to China. The Lord is busy dealing with that in people’s hearts and He is going to divinely call people to China. They are going to do simple things like teach cooking, sewing, English and maths. These simple things will bring the gospel in. They cannot enter China as preachers; they have to go in a different way, to be able to get the gospel to the Nation.
China is a sleeping giant that needs to be woken up and it will not awaken easily. Billboards and advertising cannot shout about this need to turn. It needs to be subtle and will take many years.
Strategically, for Asia, the emphasis should be on spreading the Gospel. The church needs to pray for missionaries to go to Asia as it is a difficult arena. People need to ready themselves to go there just as the body of Christ needs to continue sending people into those areas. The poor will be an area of impact. This sounds foolish because our logic may say that reaching the influential people will facilitate reaching the poor versus going directly to the poor. The Lord wants to reach the poor and He will give us, as South Africans and many other pioneering nations the heart for the East. Take the simplicity of the Gospel into China. The African missionary work model of forty years ago needs to be applied here.
A sign for Asia will be the initiation of cleaning up of environmental pollution. Initially these may be small areas, but they are going to grow and expand as the actual gospel becomes prevalent in the entire region
of the Asian continent.
I sense the Lord speaks about Australia and New Zealand as a slumbering giant in terms of Christianity and the gospel. I also feel that there are far too few Australians on the mission field and they somehow locked themselves in and never got onto the mission field. I feel that, in the coming year, God is going to start addressing this and we will start seeing Australians on the mission field where we haven’t seen them before. We are going to see their impact and their impact is going to be pioneering. It is going to be coarse and rough but it is going to be effective. This is because they are a strong nation in essence and God is
going to use that to open up areas that nobody else can open. They need to heed this call to missions.
The pacific islands, Australia and New Zealand have strong bonds that are going to strengthen even more. There is an admiration within the Australian and New Zealand population for the Pacific Island citizens and these guys are gospel power-houses. The Lord has raised them up – the people from these small insignificant islands will sweep across these nations with the power-house of the gospel. They have been especially designed by the Lord in this way – to influence these nations. It is not going to be a little trickle, it is not going to be a drop, it will be a tsunami that will continually wash over them. I see that these Islanders already have a vision and mission in their hearts as far as Australia and New Zealand are concerned. This is a massive vision and mission that will affect every single corner of these nations.
I have a word of warning for leaders about the populist movement in Australia and New Zealand. I feel that the Lord wants to say to them that He did not put them there is to be popular, He put them there to be a leader. Even though their perceived leadership season may be very short lived, they must see to it that they stick to the clearly defined mandate that brought their ascend to the leadership podium. They must not worry about the persecution and the popular opinion which will remove them from that throne or seating. They are there to do what they have to do. There will be some longer “throne” seasons than others, but it seems that most of these seasons will be very short lived. Get done what must be done; it won’t be easy; it is not something that will be popular. It is something that needs to be done for the good of the entire community and even the entire nation that they are serving.
The economy of the entire North America will still be the biggest economy in the world in the foreseeable future. There will be much clambering for all kinds of other markets for the fear of this economy toppling, but that too will subside. People are going to concentrate more on what they have to fix at local level. The entire economy is going to be very vibrant and retrace its confidence in the next year or two. In the USA there is a lot of negative prophetic typology, not recognising their privilege and forgetting to look at the detail of their progress because of their connection to the Lord. I feel America is still in a good place and the doomsday utterances are not going to come about. There is a fibre in the American people that will not allow certain of the things to come about that they are so fearful about and I feel the government will be under increasing pressure to line up with what the American people really want. They want an ethical, moral, solid, functioning, workable government that functions according to Christian ethics. The north and north-eastern parts of America are known to be more liberal but conservatism will come to those areas. What they will call conservatism is really a gospel related move. There will be a huge amount of growth which is already taking place, but there is going to be a shift in the psyche and thinking of the American people and they are going to return to the spirit of their constitution which is based on Godly principles.
