They seem to have a resource curse. All the gems that are under the ground, everything that is under the ground has been a curse. It has made rebels rise up. Large-scale theft has caused the whole nation, except the capital city, to be dry. The country is like a desert except Luanda. Luanda, the capital city is flourishing and doing well but everywhere else they are struggling. No grass, no leaves on the trees, everything is dry and there seems to be nothing there. People have come to Angola from all over the world to steal the resources. God has had enough. He is putting His foot down and rising up a Godly church, that is going to start speaking and start praying against the curse on resources that they have. It is the root of this spirit of greed that will be dealt with. It has been given free reign and everyone has allowed little seeds of greed to enter them, so everyone seems to be affected by it.

I see them with their heads together plotting against the Asian people. They must not touch them. They have brought wealth to these countries along with their expertise. They must not try to oust the Chinese either because they are bringing progress to this middle belt of nations in Africa.
Europe’s greatest export is their people. There will be an increased need for them in other nations. They may not necessarily be welcome in these nations but they will feel the call to go, resulting in an increasing number settling in these nations. There is an emphasis on well qualified people – a single person will have a huge effect. They will be coming to continents such as Africa again. This is not the re-emergence of colonisation again – so everybody can relax. God is bringing the release in their hearts to pour themselves out in these nations. They feel that they don’t have the ability for this – it is as though they have been impeded, among other things, by politics. Their being, abilities and intellectual
property will be the greatest export in the coming years.
I see more production coming out of the country of Madagascar, more woven products, people using their hands to produce and more job opportunities being available. The tourism industry will also be on the up.
As a once French colony, I again see the country of France contributing to this nation.
I see Arab leaders coming together and meeting as the Arab Nations, in order to strengthen their countries. They seek more economical power and they are uniting for control of the oil market. This will however back fire on them as nations will turn to other countries in Africa to seek oil.
Integration is coming between the church, business and investment, but this does not mean the church is a business. Due to the relational component that integrates these groups they are moving much, much closer together, to such a degree that you almost can’t see a difference between them. What it is really depicting is the body functioning together in unity and it’s got nothing whatsoever to do with running the church as a business. It’s got to do with the effect of the church in the business and investment realm. This has been happening in the last 8-10 years. The philosophy and related fears behind keeping church and state separate is failing. These realms are interwoven as is unity in the body of Christ. Fear based ideologies should not stop these sectors moving closer together especially in terms of spreading the gospel to the utter-most parts of the earth. This could be part of the engine and thrust to get to the utter-most parts of the earth.
I feel that the leadership of China had a very specific plan with Africa but they totally underestimated the Africans. They felt they could instil and install certain of their plans and certain of their ways thereby harnessing Africa for their specific purposes, but they did not take the people of Africa into account. The wheels are coming off the Chinese leadership’s plans within the continent. They are realizing that the honour they are receiving is just lip service. They are presently re-evaluating their whole plan which has come into disarray. My sense is that the Chinese will be less involved in Africa in the future and they will be more respectful of Africa as the Africa nations
move away from the influence of a dictatorial spirit. They were hoping, due to the influence of a dictatorial spirit, that they could just harness and pocket a few people and then run Africa. As a result of the swell of democracy within these nations this has not materialized. They are viewed with suspicion within Africa and this has derailed their entire plan. Where China has been seen as a threat, they will increasingly withdraw from the African continent.
The delivery model for missions is changing. It is not that certain things are being taken away, but rather, the Lord is adding to an initial model. The model is going to be redefined and emerge as a business and investment model, whereby missions will be combined with business and investment. This mechanism will also give entrance to the gospel in such nations as those of the Middle East and other regions that are antagonistic to the gospel. The purpose is the economic upliftment of the people and their training. Where we previously had mission stations that were purely focused on going into the bush and trying to preach the gospel, they are now, through business and investment, bringing employment, entrepreneurship, business and investment opportunities to the local people. Through this the gospel, whether it is in hidden form or being allowed to be preached openly, will be funded in those nations. This will happen because of mind-set changes in the foreign sending nations. The traditional countries that have been sending missionaries for many decades are going to re-evaluate, mainly due to their own problems at home. Their own churches are struggling for survival in the present model. A whole generation is going to emerge that will be affected on a greater level through the combination of the “business and church” model.
I sense such a spirit of peace over the SADC nations and Kenya, even though they have a lot of internal turmoil. The Lord is saying that this is because of the mandate of those nations to be a safe haven. There is specific productive purpose for agriculture- feeding other nations and helping other nations to stabilise. Out of this peace will come a lot of life, which is almost indescribable. This life will be a major thrust that will affect many, many parts of the world. There is a lot of connection between South America and this region of Africa. The Lord is connecting specific people under the radar that will influence both sides making them extremely effective and productive areas, due to the spirit of His peace hovering over these areas.
Problems, including bloodshed, due to oil reserves may occur
in the Angolan-Democratic Republic of Congo region. This is a word of warning encouraging us to find out what the Lord’s purposes are for this region and to release His intervention so that this may never come to pass. I sense that this region encompasses the northern areas of Angola into the DRC and Brazzaville Congo.
