2014 – Asia and the Gospel

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.

2014 – What Happens in the Dark will be Uncovered

There have been many pacts made between different Government parties and different people and also with the unions. They are regretting their pacts because they are stuck with what they have said. They are almost trapped in the unlawful covenants they made.  I see them drawing a line in the sand and saying change must come, we cannot walk together anymore. This will happen in the next year. It might be just before the election. There is going to be a blow up and some things are going to be uncovered. I see it splashed on the front pages of the papers. People will see the face of the person and gasp for air because it is such a shock. We do not expect that person to be busy with this kind of deal. What happens in the dark will be uncovered and God is going to shout it from the rooftops.

2014 – New Premier for Eastern Cape

A woman will rise up in the Eastern Cape, feisty like Helen Zille and she is going to shape up the whole Eastern Cape. She will become the Premier and bring changes and tighten things up. It is a very slow big ship to turn, so it will only turn slowly. When we see this woman elected, we must be positive and supportive, also in prayer because she is going to be very radical and not favoured by everybody. She will be like Malema, aggressive and aggravate everyone, get under everyone’s skin but she is going to get the job done.

2014 – SADC Agriculture

I don’t sense that we are going to hear much about agriculture. It will play a low-key role and there are certain reasons, strategically, for that. The Lord is putting a low-key plan in place and he is using a number of individuals jointly to start doing that. He is also using our farming skills and expertise in other nations in Africa. The national agricultural strategists will find this alarming. They are not sure how we are going to provide for food security in the nation. The Lord has a greater plan for South Africa in the long run in terms of the development in the other nations, so we mustn’t be alarmed by it. We must allow what the Lord is doing so that He can ensure a basket and a security for a greater area. The strategy is much greater than little South Africa – a much greater regional area like SADC is to be impacted. We will not be able to impact SA as much as we will do across the borders. This will finally flow back into much greater food security for the entire region.

2014 – Research funding in SA

Research in South Africa: I think that research funders are re-evaluating their funding models. There is a real understanding of how important it is for this nation, so funds will be reallocated to this area and in a sense this will be an area of prosperity. Basic research and even applied research will have far more money available.

2014 – Integration: Church, business and investment

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.

2014 – SADC: The Safe Haven

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.

2014 – SA Politics

South Africa is tapering towards the end of a period of window dressing by the government. In 2014 a phase will be entered whereby things will be less sinister. We will not have to ask what the ulterior motives are. The motive behind reducing the number of provinces will not be a sinister motive to gain votes; it will be a very practical thing. We should caution the citizens not to prematurely bad mouth things that are happening, but to firstly discern what the Lord is doing. I feel there will be an increase in persons who have Godly motives in government, following the next election. Some of them are current political figures, but a number of them are waiting in the wings; it seems a slightly younger generation. I feel that it is a very slow start to a restorative process in our nation, but that does not mean that we must hold back from the mandates the Lord has given this nation in terms of Africa. There is a lot more going on behind the scenes than anybody thinks and a lot of good, much more strategic planning and much more inclusiveness. This is not about political point scoring between parties. This is a broadening of what the Lord has showed about the borders and the boundaries breaking down between churches. That was a precursor of Him wanting a flow in and through the broader society and political arena. The will for unity through the joint purpose of our nation is greater than before.
