It is with great anticipation that we release the prophetic words given in God Said 2019! During the last eight years, we have seen many prophetic words that the Lord had given fulfilled with amazing accuracy and detail. Every year, as we gather to seek the Lord over two days for His prophetic direction in the coming season concerning South Africa and the nations, we wait on the Lord for His agenda. This year we were given a very specific mandate through a vision. The Lord gave a vision of us focusing on the earth. The Lord said we should focus on the whole world. Spotlights then illuminated certain regions. We believe the Lord is saying that in this coming year there are specific regions of the earth in which there will be great movements that will impact the world. The Lord is focusing on specific regions, which might also include ethnic groups. He is calling us to take note and focus on them in prayer and intercession. In these groups, we will see specific moves happening in the coming year. There will be a strong focus on regional development and regional activities, not only on individual nations or economic zones like we know them, but on the individual groups that the Lord has revealed. These groups are the EU, the Baltic states, Russia, Southeast Asia, Central and South America, and Africa south of the Equator. We believe that 2019 will be characterised by the moving and shaking in these regions and the nations in them. We invite you to partner with us as we partner with the Holy Spirit to pray these prophetic words into fulfilment over these regions, interceding for the warnings and declaring the promises of our Lord Jesus Christ over them!
Rev. 19: 10 b – “Worship only God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus” (NLT).

THE EUROPEAN UNION
A splintering is coming in the European Union (EU). A strong individualistic trend is emerging among the EU nations. EU nations want to be self-regulatory again and not form part of a bigger group of nations. Many of the participating nations will try to disentangle themselves from the EU with many meetings taking place in secret between heads of state and the EU. The EU leaders will try to keep these nations in the EU. Different nations in the EU are beginning to lose their identity. In the years that the EU has been controlling them, they have lost the sense of who they are, especially the Italians. They don’t feel Italian anymore; they feel controlled and manipulated, and although the country did prosper under the EU, Italians are seeing that they have benefited in one area but lost in another. Many of the EU member nations will want to stand up and be individual nations again. There will be much arm wrestling in the spirit and in the natural and jockeying for position as these nations attempt to stand up against stronger nations like France and Germany. France and Germany will try to persuade them to stay in the EU by causing more trade to come their way and with special deals with loans. There will be an increase in borrowing, especially by Italy and Spain. They are borrowing money to stay afloat; their economic ship is busy sinking and they are struggling to stay economically viable. There are several agreements between the various EU countries, with some of the smaller countries in the EU feeling bullied by the more powerful nations such as Germany and France. Several smaller EU nations will not want to honour the terms of previous agreements. This will result in further separation in the EU. Evidence of this will be seen across various media outlets, and leaders of certain EU nations will publicly speak out against each other. The will of the people to return to their roots is strong, and many within these nations are propagating that.
A stronger stance
Currently it seems like the EU has a soft stance on many issues. This will change as the EU leadership will take a stronger stance in defence of their people and policies, which will become apparent in their dealings towards Russian threats against EU countries. The EU as a whole in this coming year will take a different stand in regard to not seeing itself as the only mediator between the East and the West, but taking a strong stance in protecting the earth and the people in it. God’s Call on the European Union The Lord is calling the EU to take a stand regarding the nations. They have tried to accommodate everyone and everything. The EU has a Biblical responsibility to protect the people in these nations. God has called the EU to help protect the rest of the world from strong influences of individual nations that want to govern, take over and control other nations, especially Russia, the United Arab Emirates and America. The EU has been playing a balancing role, and the Lord will let them take a stand against what is wrong and to stand for what is right. The EU has been formed out of nations with strong Christian heritage and the Lord is calling that heritage out to stand for what is right and true and not to accommodate what is wrong and what is false.
Eastern and western Europe
Eastern European nations that are part of the EU will start grouping together and becoming a strong voice. A bigger divide between the western European and eastern European nations will be seen in opinions and their sentiment towards certain decisions that are made within the EU. A call will go forth for a change of leadership, specifically for the resignation of the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker. The Eastern European nations will be strong proponents for this change in leadership. These nations will start to demand a stronger voice in decision making regarding regulations and what happens in the EU.
The finances of the eastern and northern regions of Europe are being targeted by secret organisations. This revelation will cause disinvestment in these regions.
Discussions and plans are already underway to make the EU independent in their energy needs. Conflict with Russia and disagreements that will occur between the EU and Arab nations will necessitate this step. The EU will promote new ways of generating electricity and alternatives to fuel, enabling them to source what they need within their own borders and become an example to the rest of the world of what is possible. A new form of energy will be developed causing the European region to move away from what is common and moving into something different that will spread all over Europe and bring an energy revolution. It may be a combination of known technology with something new that they discovered and put together. Germany is sitting on that and not releasing it.
A wave of evangelism will flow over many European nations. This wave will be characterised by a new boldness in believers to publicly proclaim the Gospel. The boldness in the people will increase despite attempts from authorities and the introduction of new rules to restrict people’s ability to voice their religious beliefs in public. Believers will be seen boldly proclaiming the Gospel, while other religions criticise and protest against these actions. There will be media coverage about this conflict.
These events will place a hidden segment of the population in the public spotlight. The publicity will spark interest in the Gospel message in Europe, resulting in conversions amongst Muslims and a new interest in Christianity. Simultaneously, a counterfeit religious movement will arise in opposition to the move of God.
Exposure of corrupt operations
A vision was seen of a big sword hitting the EU; God is addressing some inequalities in terms of regulations and laws and how they are implemented. People are complaining and protesting to have their laws revisited. Inequality in terms of the application of the law over migrants and citizens will be addressed. A strong form of inequality will be broken. People will be judged on the same basis under law.
In some parts of Europe, instability will occur with certain monarchies. Specifically in Monaco, this will bring back a focus onto their history and the validity of the crown.
Strong nationalist movements are occurring in all the member states that will be difficult to contain. The EU is agitated, especially Jean-Claude Juncker, because they have a vision of establishing an empire and it is not going to come to fruition. The EU will not be dismantled but states are going to insist on their own identities. The cumbersome bureaucracy that the EU has developed will again be in the spotlight because it demands too many resources from member states.
One religious world order
Roman Catholic Church
The Roman Catholic Church will become weaker and lose members. The introduction of new policies and a new direction by the Pope will cause a split. Information about the dwindling membership will be suppressed by the church. The loss in their power base will motivate the Roman Catholic leaders to join with other religious groups in an attempt to strengthen their voice, especially within the political realm.
The Pope has a significant role and he is moving very quickly with his agenda in terms of bringing the three religious groups (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) together for the future of the EU. Agreements are being reached and the whole dynamic nature and culture of the EU is changing. This will have great influence on other nations and continents as it begins to emerge and make its mark in terms of the New World Order developing.
Threat to Israel
Muslims, Roman Catholics and Christians will be coming together to form an alliance — this coming together will have a negative impact that will cause a crisis between Israel and the EU because this alliance will become a threat to Israel. Turkey, specifically Erdogan, will have the Pope’s ear. Erdogan has a major role in the future of the EU and its dynamic in terms of a one world order and one rule government.
Much more poverty will be seen in the EU. With the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer, there is great economic disparity.
In certain parts there will be reconciliation. Countries that have a history that goes back hundreds of years will consider the past and what took place between them. Countries like Greece and Turkey, where there has always been discord, will come to an agreement and reconciliation will take place.
The immigration crisis will come to an end. Many refugees that are currently in Europe will start going back home. The church has been reaching out to those who have been displaced as the Lord placed them in their care for a season. They will take the things that were imparted to them back to their home nations and these people will have influence and an impact in the nations where they settle.
Russia and the EU
A vision was seen of a boiling pot in the north-eastern side of Europe falling over and tipping into the EU. A fear of conflict and military action from Russia will have a major impact in the whole EU in the coming year. Many fortifications are being built and armoured equipment will be moving through the EU nations.
UAE and the EU
There will be a break-up between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the EU in terms of policies. There is conflict arising between the EU and the UAE that will cause a problem with global oil and fuel prices.
USA and the EU
Member nations of the EU will develop stronger relationships with President Donald Trump and the USA apart from the EU’s official position. A trade war between the EU and the USA will cause some nations to use this disagreement to find more autonomy in economic policy apart from EU policy. Threats will come from the EU leadership to enforce sanctions on some of these member states for not following official policy.
In France, President Macron will gather many heads of state. It will be a gathering of many nations of which France will be the nucleus. The invitation will come from him in bringing these countries together. Because of events like this, there will be attacks on the city of Paris and other parts of France. Gunfights in the streets will necessitate a heightened police presence and force people to take cover. Government will need to step up the security in France generally. There is a strong call for intercessors to pray for France. There is a focus on ‘love your neighbour’ and the nations around France will assist France to clean up and help France get rid of the evil element from within.
Germany will come under pressure from other EU member states as many will look to Germany with unrealistic expectations to solve problems in the EU. Much prayer for Germany will be required in 2019. They will need strong innovative leaders and wisdom to cope with all the challenges the EU will face as well as the various accusations that will be thrown at them.
The word ‘discoveries’ was heard over Germany. There will be major medical breakthroughs. Germany will take a place of prominence in the world in terms of new discoveries.
Germany’s Leadership Role
Germany is a leader nation. The Hitler era was an attempt at perverting this call. The Lord wants to remind the German people about taking up this leadership again by leading in a servant role. They are double-minded with regards to this due to their history and they therefore shirk their responsibility in leading. The German people are great problem-solvers and this skill is sorely needed in the nations surrounding them. They are, however, holding back on their innovations because of their caution as being seen to impose themselves on those nations. They have many solutions to almost all existing regional problems. It is time for them to let go of the past and take up their role. This will cause other nations to benefit from their productive solutions. They are not just called to a regional stage but an international one. Inequality Addressed Germany will be reconsidering laws regarding rape, murders and crime. These laws must be revisited for certain race groups; there is an inequality between sentencing people. One person will receive 10 years for rape while another gets 1 year. Equal judgement will be handed down. Refugee Clean-up A mop was seen cleaning over the nation, specifically in the south-western side of Germany. There is an outcry coming from these people against the immigration policies, and a cleanup of the nation is going to happen. Where there was an embracing attitude towards immigrants in the past, this is going to change quickly. The people are reaching a boiling point; they can’t bear the effects of the old immigration policies anymore and that is going to force the nation to act.
A strong nationalist move from Greece will cause discord in the EU. A crisis in economic policies in Greece and economic agreements that had been made will become a driving factor in this move. This movement will force the politicians in Greece to try and renegotiate deals that have been made before causing discord within the Union itself.
The strength of the public will increase. Many protests will be seen against the leadership of the nation and corruption in government. The democratic power of the people will be shown and bring change. This will become an inspiration to other nations to use democratic forms of pressure to influence change in governments.
The rejuvenation of a previous popular tourist area will restore what once was an economic hub for Spain. New investment will take place and tourists will return to that area. They will start focusing on tourism once again. Plans are being discussed to develop a type of Disneyland in Spain to draw tourists. Plans are in their infancy, but they want a drawcard to bring more tourists to Spain.
The nation of Turkey and especially president Erdogan and the EU member states will be at odds with each other. In the past, the EU member states accommodated and turned a blind eye to what is happening in the nation of Turkey but this is changing. There will be a push to address issues around Erdogan and Turkey. Erdogan will be pressing for issues in the EU to be heard, specifically in terms of Israel, and a pro-Muslim focus will cause a crisis with Israel. This will not go down well with some of the other European nations.
Agreements between Germany and Turkey in terms of sending immigrants back to their various states will be enforced. Funding will be coming forth for this. An uprising of these immigrants not wanting to go back because of the education, financial assistance and quality of life that they receive in Germany will occur. Many immigrants have received salvation in the European nations and do not want to go back. Because of this, strong disagreement between Erdogan and Merkel will occur.
The word ‘invasion’ was heard. The borders of the EU will be aggressively challenged.
A dome of a very old cathedral will be collapsing. There are many beautiful paintings inside. Fishing There will be a fishing crisis in the seas around Europe. Whether it will be a lack of fish or a dispute with other nations was not clear. This issue will receive media coverage. Piracy There is a warning for Portugal and Spain, but especially Portugal, to be on the lookout for pirate ships near their shores.
There will be a specific health crisis surrounding the Pope.
God has blessed the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) with great scientists, providing them with technologies and strategies to boost the agricultural sector which will in turn have a positive effect on the economies. Unfortunately, certain persons in government have not provided the support needed to implement these plans due to corrupt agendas not in the best interest of the public. Furthermore, many scientists have been lured away to other nations with promises of more money and better living. Prayer is needed to bring these scientists back to provide the necessary skills needed to assist in developing and boosting the agricultural sector.
The Baltic states are in constant crisis management. Every crisis catches their attention and they neglect to look at their true potential. One of these areas of potential is agriculture. It is difficult for them to see this potential because the young people who can work the land have all run away to other nations, especially the USA. The older generation is fear driven because of the threat on their borders, which keeps them from establishing this potential food basket that will pour into the markets of Europe. A great portion of their financial problems will be alleviated if they follow this route. They are being distracted by rumours of wars that will not happen. The Baltic nations are called to invest into agriculture, and that agriculture will become prominent again. A higher quality crop will be produced. People that have stopped farming for many years will start planting and growing crops again. Potatoes will be grown in that area.
Building the economy
The heads of these three nations are linking together and trying to build an economic tower. They are looking at the resources they have and all the people that have emigrated. They are trying to lure them back with an economic upsurge. They can only do it if they are in unity and at the moment, there is no unity between them. The politicians ruling in these nations are keeping the economic groups apart while those working in the economy want to work together. This is a very important prayer issue: that the economics and political forces will not be divided but that they will come together into unity for the good of the people.
Some of the areas that are very sparsely populated have many elderly people because the young people have moved away to find employment. These elderly people have lost their purpose and their zeal. The economic leaders are trying to involve the youth more to work in factories and so draw them back into these areas. International car manufacturers are looking for property in these three nations and are trying to find an area where they can build a car manufacturing plant and create employment.
The Christian heritage within the Baltic nations will become a strong anchor and a testimony in the EU. A heart to preserve the Christian heritage of the Baltic nations will be stirred in the EU. This will be a result of the forceful stand the Baltic nations will take for their own culture and faith. It will become a testimony for the whole EU and cause compassion to arise, especially from Germany.
Spirit of Intercession
A spirit of intercession and prayer is rising in these nations. Many people will turn to God because of a sense of insignificance and powerlessness against threats towards their countries and their lives. Religious Shaking and Revival There is a strong religious spirit in this region and many still believe in icons, statues and types of prayer and rituals. These beliefs are going to be challenged because the young people returning to the nations are going to come back with the true Gospel. There will be a shaking between the generations in the area of religion. Older people will be trying to hold on to the old ways, and the young people will be bringing a new flow and spirit, not charismatic or Pentecostal, but a new way of serving God. A spiritual wind will blow over the Baltic states and bring a mini revival in the hearts of people. There may not be big crusades, but hearts will change. The older people will see the zeal of the younger folk and how they are serving God. This change will not be sudden. Initially, there will be a standoff and tension. A big house-church movement will emerge in these nations.
The culture of the Baltic states will be made visible to the rest of the European nations. This will place more attention on this area of the continent. More Europeans will start to visit these nations.
These three nations have great innovators. They will become known as leaders in the field of renewable energy. The higher education institutions will become institutions of choice as a result of the leading role that the nations will play in the field of renewable energy. The scientists in these nations will be well known and will come up with innovative ideas to address challenges that the nations are facing in agriculture with innovative ideas to minimise the risks posed by natural disasters like flooding. The minds of the people in the Baltic nations will be touched by God and a new ingenuity will come from the people. The great influence Baltic people had on technology, science, culture, arts and entertainment across the world will be made known and bring great pride to their people. These revelations will give the Baltic nations a more prominent voice amongst the other nations of the world and more attention will be placed on the Baltic people and their plight.
Fish eggs have been dying off due to pollution in the Baltic Sea. There will be a season that they will have to stop fishing in certain areas. In some areas, there will be no fish.
A big standoff between Russia and the Baltic nations will force them to hold on to their historic roots. Russia will introduce economic policies in terms of gas and energy which will force nations to stand together. Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia will stand together stronger than ever before, like a David standing against Goliath. This will elicit German intervention and support, ultimately resulting in the EU reembracing the Baltic states. The whole standoff with Russia will result in stimulation of the Baltic state economies by the EU. Many European policies will change regarding these nations. Finances will come back, drawing many of the young people back that have left. The Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will come under pressure in the coming year. They will find themselves being held hostage by restrictions on the supply of gas and oil, causing the prices of these commodities to increase considerably. Due to the economic and political pressure caused primarily by Russia, these nations will be forced to build war machines such as tanks to defend themselves. Conflicts between these nations will also flair up and the EU as well as the USA will look to impose sanctions. Russia will attempt to exert stronger influence in the Baltic countries and force its culture on the Baltic people in an attempt to integrate these nations into Russia again. This will cause a new pride and stronger sense of identity rising within the populations.
Corruption due to Russian influence in government will be exposed and cause people to demand change. Political parties opposing Russian influence will join hands and become a powerful force, influencing decision making in government. International Support Attention will be placed on the Russian military and naval bases in the region. The activity of the Russian army will get attention in European and international news. Other nations will join the Baltic nations in speaking against Russia’s intentions and activity in this part of the world.
Union of Baltic states
The union of the Baltic states will become stronger. The constant threat from Russia has caused these three nation’s leaders to form an alliance. Because of the shared history of the crusaders, a heart change and revival will come to these nations.
The Baltic people will engage with their history, realising this is a new generation that is rising up. This new generation has a vision for a future and a new identity. These three countries are rising up with a new identity. Protection of the borders will be needed in the northern region. The countries will be taking hands against intruders.
Lithuania will be stretched and pulled by events in the surrounding countries. What will start in Lithuania will affect the countries in that area and also influence Russia. The focus will be on religion and the church in this country, which will affect the Baltic states.
Stirrings in the weather patterns in the area will bring strong winds. Water was seen rising and flooding taking place to the point where surrounding nations will have to come to help.
A missional focus
Russia has a default mindset which is offensive, aggressive and often corrupt to the Western world. To them, this is just how one naturally does things. Russia is still a huge mission field, but the nations who are supposed to be sending missionaries have lost focus and have let this mandate slide.
The Lord wants to release a wave flowing over Russia from west to east which will change the morality by challenging their default mindset, bringing new possibilities. Nations need to step up sending missionaries into Russia as this field has now been left barren and needs to be worked again with vigour.
A vision of a big fist slamming down in Russia was seen. The government is trying to control everybody’s voice in Russia. People are being killed for what they are saying. Journalists will be imprisoned and shot for speaking against the government. There will be a push for influence into the nations closer to Russia. Agreements between nations will be made, but one important agreement will be made with China that will embolden China because Russia is backing them.
Russia’s economy is very strong. They are surging ahead and are extremely confident. As a nation they are standing on their own two feet. They are focused on themselves and not so much on importing and exporting goods. There is a reliance on self that is quite new for them. The Russian population is very content and happy. Prosperity hasn’t come to them as much as it should have, but they don’t seem to be bothered by that too much. There seems to be a truce between the politicians and the people. The political leaders, from the president to the prime minister, have formed a group similar to a gang or cartel. Although there are factions, they are not warring against each other; there is an unusual unity among leaders in Russia in this season.
A vision was seen of a bear charging fearlessly. Russia will not apologise for fighting for the benefit of its people and the country’s needs. International analysts will not be able to explain the Russian government’s thinking. The motivation of the Russian mind is not according to western thinking or eastern thinking.
Expansion into Siberia and the northern regions of Russia because of new discoveries, natural resources and research, will take place. A new source of financial and economic wealth will come out of these desolate and remote regions.
Russia will focus on developing a more autonomous economy free from foreign influence and fluctuations because of foreign policies against them.
New strategic remote military bases will be built. These bases are built in secret.
There is currently work and development being done on a new form of energy that is different to what is currently the norm. Tests done in secret will be used later to gain power over certain nations that will need this form of energy that they created.
The nation will take independence to a whole new level. They are busy remodelling and knitting multiple systems within the nation together. All of this is done to improve running the nation, from government to agriculture and mining, extending to every sector. This is done to ensure their independence from the rest of the world. They want to come up with systems that are different from the rest of the world. They want to be completely independent as a nation to a point where they will stand out.
Infrastructure connecting people
Infrastructure upgrades within Russia connecting people groups will take place. The railway connections will bring greater access to small ethnic groups in remote areas in Russia, which will also bring greater connectivity within the nation. Smaller ethnic people groups and products coming from these ethnic groups will gain access to global markets. These products will be original and fill people with awe and will become well sought after. All of this will happen because of the new infrastructure connections.
The military is an extremely strong and effective arm of government in Russia and they are currently the employment of choice for the Russian people. However, over the next five years factions will emerge in the military.
Russia will use a new strategy to encourage people to speak Russian. There will be benefits for the nations and people who embrace Russian. This strategy is to give their language more prominence outside of Russia.
The national pride of Russia will increase and be clearly seen. Although people are not living in the best circumstances, they have a national pride. Pride concerning the victories of the nation will be put on display. A display of national pride will be noted throughout the Soccer World Cup.
In 2019 there will be a show of strong military strength that will shock many western nations. It’s been really well hidden but will be revealed in the next year. Russia will counteract the role of western nations on many fronts. Russia will polarise regions and play almost a devil’s advocate role in many conflicts around the globe in the coming year. This will not make them popular in the western nations, but amongst their people the pride for the nation and the effect it has on the world will be prevalent.
Putin A Modern Tsar
Vladimir Putin sees himself as a modern tsar of Russia; he has modelled himself on the tsars of Russia. His nuclear ambition or strategy has been to take certain countries and build nuclear bases within these countries to create a conglomeration of nations that will be powerful and support him in his vision to influence global affairs. He wants to be known in the future as one of the tsars of Russia.
There will be tremendous conflict as Putin expands his nuclear arsenal to countries around him. In this next season, the Russian ruble will significantly decrease in value, causing much poverty.
After president Putin’s overwhelming victory in the last election, the government with its leadership has further galvanised. It will not be obvious, but Putin’s role as a dictator will increase, further oppressing the people and their rights to choose their own beliefs.
The church must fervently pray for missionaries as they will face much persecution and the consequences of sharing the faith will be fatal. By doing this, the Russian government is trying to nullify any hope that God brings to the people through the missionaries.
Vladimir Putin is a man in conflict. He has this vision of world domination on one side and on the other side, the influence of a paternal grandmother who has prayed for this generation for many years. The result of this is that the Lord is working in his personal life and he has doubts about pushing through certain portions of this world domination vision. His grandmother prophetically prayed for his leadership role and that he would be led by the Spirit of God. She carried several children in her prayers and in her heart.
The Lord is not just going to let Putin get away with his plan. He has a sensitivity to notice natural occurrences such as weather patterns and storms as if someone is trying to tell him something through them. He has this question inside of himself: ‘What if God is really real?’
Russia still has many agents and spies in various countries. A large tsunami was seen passing over Russia from the east to the west, signifying Russia’s movement towards the west. Long-standing establishments will be cut and brought down.
The Lord is saying to Putin, ‘Putin, I see you and I see the works of your hands, and I will tie those hands to protect my people.’
A vision was seen of multiple space rockets going to space; there will be a great expansion in the Russian space program. Some of the rockets had the word ‘Mars’ written on them and the others, ‘Moon.’ They will be launching their own exploration missions to the moon. Other attempts will be made to go to Mars. It will be well covered in the media.
Threats of war
A vision was seen of a man flexing his arm muscles; we will see the nation of Russia flexing its muscles in the next year. There will be a show of Russia’s strength that the world does not expect it has and it will become prevalent in the next year.
Russia has a strong alliance with China and North Korea. They are a mighty sleeping giant with a strong nuclear arsenal as well as an immense and capable army. Russia has been preparing for war on a large scale. They have been building up their gas and oil reserves so that they can be self-sufficient and put a stranglehold on countries on their borders.
Russia will slowly make a move into Europe from the east, starting from the Baltics. They have strategically placed ‘sleeper cells’ in countries like Chechnya, Poland and neighbouring areas to infiltrate and cause trouble in central Europe, placing more pressure on countries such as Germany.
There is talk of peace, peace, peace, but for a time they have secretly been preparing for a war.
Electronics Upgrades Many electronic systems are being upgraded. A new weapon is being produced for electronic warfare. It will be able to disable all electronic systems over a specific area, from watches to cars and military vehicles and equipment. This will force their opponents to engage in hand to hand combat instead of using mechanised combat.
Intercession Much intercession is needed for Russia. It seems as if there is a plan to start World War III. People need to intercede for that because many people still need to be saved in Russia.
A huge increase is coming for tourism in Russia, drawing many people to the country.
Russia is harbouring evil, hidden agendas of war against other countries. The Lord will use extreme weather patterns to slow down these agendas and in other instances bring these agendas to a stop as Russia’s focus will
shift to managing the effect of these weather patterns on the country.
Russia and Israel
Russia will become very vocal against Israel in the Palestinian conflict. The whole Palestinian conflict will step into a new era because of Russia’s involvement. Renewed relations between Russia and Israel will take place in secret. Secret alliances will be formed that will benefit Russia and its vision to again be a world dominator. The relationship presented in public will be used as a ploy to disguise the true relationship between the two nations.
A vision was seen of the bear of the north coming into the whole of Russia and crushing any religious spirit and any kind of born-again experience. The church is being forced underground because of persecution. There are certain religious groups the government seems to like and accommodate but they dislike other more radical groups who do healings and prophecy.
There is a prophet in Russia that has written a prophetic book. This book has been put into Putin’s hands. He has read it, but the distribution of the book has been stopped. As soon as he encounters anyone that challenges him, he sends them to Siberia or stops the publication or removes it from the bookshops. He doesn’t allow people any room to grow or to challenge him.
The nations in the region will join hands and agree on something regarding agricultural produce. This agreement will cause the agriculture that is weak in certain areas to strengthen and cause the agricultural produce of the entire region to increase. Much of this increase will be sent to other nations and be a blessing to the region.
There has been an influx of the drug trade in the region. A very popular sportsman will become a crusader against the drug trade. Because he is so well known, he will draw the attention of the media and the public. It will put a spotlight on the existing drug trade and cause it to slow down.
The tectonic plates of the earth are shifting in this greater region. Earthquakes and volcanic action will increase in this area. These earthquakes will even happen in the south-eastern tip of New Zealand, in an area not known for earthquakes. The magnitude of earthquakes there will be in the range of about 5–6 on the Richter scale.
The Pacific ‘ring of fire’ will be very active. Two or three earthquakes will occur in the Philippines and the northern areas of Southeast Asia (Philippines, Singapore). In the south eastern tip of New Zealand, the authorities need to prioritise an emergency plan for this area as there is not a very effective one in place, if at all.
Volcanic activity will also increase. A major humanitarian crisis will occur that will need western help.
As the fishing industry is a great source of income to the countries in the region, a battle for the ‘fishing waters’ will ensue. There will be a tug of war between the different nations concerning the rights to fish in certain areas and pirating will become prevalent. God will, however, raise up leaders who will come together to negotiate and resolve the conflict.
The uncovering of the human trafficking circle will escalate. The participation of major business and governmental leaders in human trafficking will be exposed. A new emphasis on education in the poorer nations will occur.
A vision was seen of a young girl selling her body for money. Some of the moral values in terms of human dignity and life will be placed in the spotlight. There is an underlying immoral perception that others can be used. The world will be focusing in on that. There will be an outcry from different nations saying: ‘Get yourselves in line. Stop this nonsense that is going on.’
Leaders joining hands
The leaders in the area will join hands with one another. A new union or alliance to combat specific common challenges in the region will be formed that will overcome poverty with the help of those who are prosperous. Meetings will take place where they will discuss a plan and a strategy. Agreements will be made which will cause the region to advance in the next few years.
In these nations there will be a revisiting of their monarchist roots. Many of these nations will rise and rebel against their monarchist roots because of tremendous discrepancies between the rich and the poor. There will be much change because of future generations planning for the nations and taking the vision of the nations forward, which will sideline monarchies and their way of governing.
There is a total imbalance in the wealth and the outlook of the people. Philippines are seen as the slaves of the area and are used for all the menial work.
God has a heart for the higher Southeast Asia nations. He has sent spiritual forerunners ahead like Joseph Prince and Jonathan David to prepare the ground to bring a revival to the people.
A new spurt of religion and charismatic outlook taking place in the whole area will spill down to Australia and New Zealand.
Australia A Haven
Australia has been a haven for a long time for many people from all over the world. There has been a constant influx of people to the nation.
Stricter policies will limit people coming to Australia.
Australia and New Zealand have become very hard-hearted spiritually. They don’t believe much in God. They seem to regard people as equal but people of the northern Asian regions are looked down upon as only useful for menial labour. Many of the north-eastern Asians will take up high positions as scientists, professors and deans of universities. Their status as immigrants will change. It will be a five-year period before this will be visible. Asians understand that education is key for changing their values, and are preparing for it now by educating their children.
Drought There will be a drought in the south-western side of Australia which will put food security under tremendous pressure. Where they were supplying to other countries, they will have to stop to produce enough for themselves.
Church Refreshed A refreshing is coming to the church of Australia. A wave will be coming, starting from the top down, and changing the whole church culture of the country.
Law Enforcement The Australian model of policing will be used by other nations. They will send people to other nations to teach them because they have good systems in place.
Immigration There is frustration among the Australian citizens due to the influx of Chinese into the nation. Their increasing influence and control of business and industry is the cause of this frustration. The government has noted the challenges this has caused and more stringent immigration controls will be put in place, making it more difficult for foreigners to settle and establish themselves in the country. Tensions will arise between China and Australia but will subside in a short while.
Australia is applying a very good immigration policy. This will attract people with skills to build and lift the nation while keeping out the bad elements such as human traffickers. What they have done right is to get the total buy-in from the law-enforcement agencies in the country. This includes authorities in immigration to the local policemen on the beat. They have a real heart to look after the nation. This is something that they can be proud of and be commended for.
The influx of foreigners buying property in Australia and New Zealand will cause legislation to be brought in that will keep foreigners from buying property. They want to take back the soil. There is a campaign by the Australians for Australia to be for the Australians.
There will be severe weather patterns and weather activities in Australia. A severe shaking of the land will occur, and a piece of the land was seen breaking off Australia: the top tip of the land near Papua New Guinea.
The leaders in this nation feel that they have everything under control, but they are on shaky ground. Things are not as perfect as they seem.
Great urban development will take place. New cities are being built with brand new technology, creating new land out of the ocean and building a hi-tech green city that becomes the new standard for future cities across the world. These revolutionary new cities will inspire new developments across Asia, becoming an example to western nations. Countries like Malaysia will even bypass Australia and New Zealand in its development.
Many western scientists, architects and engineers will be attracted to this part of the world to join the economy and development. Expat communities will increase. Great competition between Malaysia, Korea and Taiwan in economic development will take place.
Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore
A golden ring was seen surrounding the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. These three countries will take hands in developing a new strategy with a single focus on the economy. They share certain areas of expertise and they realise that they can only become a significant role player if they work together. These three countries will enter into new national and international agreements that will strengthen their economy.
Singapore will take a lead in terms of education in the form of an online virtual classroom, first of its kind worldwide, because of the demographics of the whole region. The region will take its cue from Singapore.
Singapore is a nation becoming a brilliant white knight. It will become a testimony of God’s goodness over nations that serve Him. This great testimony of Singapore will ring out across the southern Asian region as the nation embraces the Lord. Singapore will become a watchdog over the whole region.
New Zealand will see a strengthening in conservatism in government. New legislation will be introduced that will enforce a new patriotism.
A new wave of the Lord is coming for New Zealand, which will bring much more freedom to the Body of Christ in this country. The eyes of the Body of Christ globally will be on New Zealand for a certain period of time. New things will be coming from here.
Much exposure of drug trafficking will take place. The eyes of the world will focus on Thailand as being one of the leaders of drug trafficking for the east.
A change of government in Thailand will take place because of the rise of the people against the country’s leaders because they are involved in
South China Sea
Conflict around China and its activity in the South China Sea will be gearing up. The UK will support the other nations in Southeast Asia. It will be a standoff for a while as China pushes to expand its boundaries in the South China Sea.
The Hand of God is on the smaller islands. A strong evangelical move will take place and revival will break out in these areas. The people are seeking the Lord because of all the difficulties they are facing.
Abnormal weather patterns will occur with excessive rainy seasons resulting in various natural disasters such as mudslides and flooding. Governments must make provision in their disaster relief funds. Much foreign aid will also be required to assist in alleviating the problems caused.
CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA
A strong brotherhood
A stronger brotherhood will develop between the nations of Central America and the northern countries of South America. No longer will each nation just focus on themselves but the potential for progress and growth by working together will cause the nations to become involved in helping each other. Leaders of these nations will reach out to each other. Leaders will not merely stay silent about issues in their neighbouring countries but will start voicing their concerns.
A greater focus on developing economic freedom and the movement of produce and products from country to country will take place. Multinational plans will be put in place to develop road networks and create corridors for the economy, making it easier to move products and people across many borders. By joining together economically, these countries will be able to develop strong trade agreements with big countries like Mexico and Brazil.
Changes in government
Several changes in governments will take place throughout South America. Many of the Southern American nations have had a change of leaders and governments over the last two years. In 2019, many nations in South America will be experiencing changes in government.
Changing of legislation
Legislation was seen changing and new laws being implemented. There will be constitutional changes in some of these countries; some will even have their constitution rewritten. Many of the nation’s constitutions have not been completed. It is half done. They will be completed, and proper legislation, rules and information will be implemented. This
will be done with proper consultation from different community leaders.
Church coming together
The Church in the South American region will be coming together; revivals will break out starting from the north-western nations, then filtering down to the south-eastern parts of South America. Due to all the difficult economic and political circumstances the people are facing, many are really seeking the Lord.
Community and social movements in the different countries in this region will reach across borders and support one another. They will become involved in their country’s challenges. They will address issues and put pressure on the governments to change, resulting in some instances in new leadership being brought in and old leaders resigning. A new fresh move will start to take place in these nations that will result in a new level of morality and higher standards.
The commodity cycle will turn. A season of breakthrough in terms of commodity prices is coming upon the southern American nations.
Latin-American countries will have a season of strong resistance against corruption. This confrontation of corruption will spread from country to country. A multi-national movement will call in a Central and South American spring.
There will still be a season of great conflict and turmoil politically and in armed resistance. But after this season of conflict, resolution will come; South and Central America will get their act together and become a powerful group of nations that carry weight in the international economic community.
Drug trade and cartels
Conflict will arise between authorities and drug lords in addressing the way crime syndicates have had influence in government. The connection between these entities will be severed. The crime and drug cartels will have a very difficult time in the future and will not be able to continue in their old ways.
The drug trade will be under immense pressure to decrease their areas of influence. Some of the areas will be changed and be used for cultivating food and crops.
This region will place emphasis on the strengthening of the family structure. Governments will increase social grants in an attempt to strengthen family structure. Although this is not the answer necessarily, it will be one of the attempts of governments in this area.
There is great potential for green energy. There will be a market opening so that people can access green energy.
There will be a helping hand extended from Europe, North America and Africa. These nations will give advice on bettering agriculture, energy and the economy in South America.
The populations in this region are maturing in terms of their individualism. This will put the political environment in turmoil as people are starting to feel that they have a role to play. Their reliance on government will diminish as they have not been treated well by governments over the decades.
The people are going to face the drug trade head-on. They will not be tolerant of dictators anymore. There is a generation that has wider exposure to the world and they will think for themselves and will be intolerant of things that the older generation allowed. This generation asks the relevant questions and will put pressure on the areas that need change.
Due to the challenging economic and political landscape, God will give the people clever ideas and inventions. These technologies will assist them in making money so that they can survive and support their families.
Many migrant workers in the USA and other nations of the world will return to their countries to bring their expertise and skills. Some of them will even become government leaders and high-placed ministers with new tools, new abilities and a new outlook to bring change and bring solutions.
Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay will start rising in prominence and experience exponential progress and growth. The governments of these nations will see a reviving and a revitalising taking place. True fathers will be standing in positions of authority and nurturing the younger generations into responsible sons in positions of leadership.
Many nations in this region will be shaken in the season to come. Poverty will become a serious issue addressed by the masses challenging their governments. The people will also no longer tolerate dictatorships and the corruption that steals progress.
Resurgence in agriculture
A light was seen coming from the top of South America zooming onto Argentina and going to Brazil. A new resurgence in agriculture will take place starting in Argentina and spill over into Brazil. It will become the new trendy thing to do: going back to the land, almost like the cowboy era when people had cattle on the land and grew crops. They are removing themselves from the cities and developing a love for the land again.
The governments are also coming on board. They have a land bank and government legislation will cause money to go to this land bank and be used for the farmers. They want to refinance the food security of the nation. It will come from government, but the hearts of the people have already been prepared to have a love for the land.
A social uprising will emerge in the South American nations. There will be strikes, marches and insurgence, unrest and the burning of effigies and a flag. People will realise how much power they really have and that
they have allowed many things to happen. There has been a hierarchy that has controlled them and manipulated them. The people are going to stand up for what they believe and become a force to be reckoned with. The governments will have to take notice of them.
Strengthening of the nations
Starting from Central America into South America, a strengthening of the nations will occur. They will start looking at themselves quite differently, believing in themselves and taking initiatives to better themselves. These nations will start standing together with Brazil as one of the power houses in South America. South America will become more powerful and will become a force to be reckoned with. The bigger power house nations will take note of it.
Brazil will awaken in their identity as a nation and become very aware of Putin and his plan in terms of BRICS. A disassociation and a breaking away from BRICS will take place. This will be a very unpopular move in some quarters. It will affect the identity of the nation.
Mineral Deposits More exploration will take place and greater mineral deposits discovered. God’s plans and purposes for these discoveries are assisting in boosting the economy with the aim of helping the poor people in Brazil.
Intercessors Needed Intercessors need to pray against corruption as the money generated from mining is meant for the nation and not only for a select few. Other nations and large mining corporations will try to exploit these discoveries, but prayer for protection and wisdom will be necessary.
New Leader God is raising up a leader with a heart for the people as God wants to bring stability to the political landscape. There will be much rioting and uproar from the people as they have had enough of the inequality, corruption and difficulties. Prayer for peace is needed.
The Church in Brazil
The church in Brazil and the government will work together. A prophetic voice and company will be raised up in Brazil. A coming together of church and a prophetic company of church and government will take
place. This will affect the direction of the nation.
God is bringing the nation of Columbia to the fore as a shining light in South America. They will place structures and policies in government that will have a positive effect on their economy and the nation. Many neighbouring countries will watch and learn from the change that God is bringing to Columbia
Guatemala is shedding their colonial past, especially in terms of the Spanish who colonised them. A tremendous emphasis will be placed on science. Science will become a major focus in this nation, with a new kind of leadership that understands the green problem in the world in terms of global warming. These scientists will become prominent in the UN and various global bodies.
Guatemala as a nation will be prominent. We will begin to hear much of this nation in the future.
With the Mexican economy strengthening, the nation will be strengthened. Stricter government and policing control will lead to a cleaning up process within the nation. A surge in the output of produce, especially agriculturally, was seen as well as in production in general. New investment and new building development will take place. Mexico will start to become a powerhouse on its own.
Many young up and coming professionals (doctors, lawyers, and businesspeople) will come out of Mexico and move into other nations.
A new leader for Panama was seen. He will have a heart for the people. As the people pray, a new government in Panama will emerge. The nation will find a new identity and God will bring restoration.
A strong women’s movement will emerge in Venezuela. This women’s movement will help to strengthen women in business and politics. Women will be catapulted through this movement into positions in business and politics.
God is raising numerous voices that will speak out against the corruption and violence in the country. Abuse against women will be one of the issues addressed. It will be very important to pray for protection as many attempts will be made on the lives of the people and their families who are standing against these injustices and all the terrible things they are exposing and revolting against. They will have to go into hiding.
Warnings Animals dying
A vision was seen of animals dying in the region of central South America due to shortages of nutritional feeds from the suppliers. Animals will suffer and chickens will die. This will damage their economy quite seriously.
AFRICA SOUTH OF EQUATOR
Africa, it’s your time
The words: ‘Africa, it is your time! African states, it is your time!’ were heard. A democratic movement will be emerging amongst the leaders of these Southern African countries and there will be a tremendous unity amongst them for the future of their nations.
Some of the nations are starting to focus more on agriculture and food security than on revenue generated from mining natural resources. In the next few years, the drive to develop and focus on agriculture will increase. This will open doors of opportunity to increase trade between various African nations as well as America, Europe and the United Kingdom. This will also boost investment and increase opportunities regarding infrastructure development. More avenues for funding of terrorism will close as leaders change their focus from mining mineral resources to agriculture.
A vision was seen of the nations south of the equator planted with fields and fields of crops. There will be collaboration in terms of building a strong agricultural breadbasket between many southern African nations. The will produce beautiful fruits that will be exported to the European and northern hemisphere nations. The collaboration in terms of agriculture in the coming year will pave the way for collaboration on many other fronts, including mining. Mining vehicles were seen moving across the borders.
There are meetings about opening the borders of the whole southern region. There is talk of the borders opening up completely, so that no passports or passport control is needed. With this, there is talk of a uni
fied currency so that one currency is used in the whole area.
God’s plan for the rail link on the west of Africa, for which we received this word last year, has not changed. The plans for this railway were drawn and there was finance but the finance was used for something else. Finance will again be gathered and this time it will be used what it was intended for.
Changing of powers
The balance of power is changing. The hands that hold the power now will not hold the power by end 2019. An enormous amount of change is rapidly coming. One country will have a change of political power, then another soon after. These leaders don’t have relationship yet, but they are going to build relationships very quickly.
China and the USA
Many leaders will be building relationships with President Donald Trump and the USA and as they prove themselves as leaders, much finance and support will flow in. The southern African nations have become aware of the negative result stemming from Chinese influence in the region. They are going to look to a credible voice in the USA and President Donald Trump to assist them.
There is a strong resistance against the invasion of China in this region. They will take an active stance against this invasion and protect the resources that were meant for Africans.
African countries currently rely on data centres in America and Europe. Southern African cities will join together to start a massive data centre for Africa. This joint venture will cause great excitement and will start a development of a new generation of IT specialists working and being taught in Africa.
Internet connectivity will increase in the region. The banking industry will be one of the forces driving this and will change dramatically. Banking will be done in ‘the cloud’. Everyone with a cell phone will be able to do banking, although there are no physical banking facilities available in some areas. This change in the banking industry will start in South Africa.
This entire zone will be revisited as an economic zone resulting in an easing of cross-border trade. The champions for this policy have lost momentum because things move slowly. The Lord wants to encourage them to persevere in these endeavours. The ease of cross-border trade in this entire zone must be pursued. Each nation maintains its individuality, but work must be done to create an economic zone. There is a discour
aged visionary (a Thabo Mbeki-African Renaissance type figure) and likeminded people who the Lord wants to encourage to keep persevering with this.
Working together in the regional economy will be synchronised in terms of having a strategy and plan. The Lord has called new leaders, not in terms of SADEC, but leaders who have a heart to work together and advance all the nations in the region.
Many of the nations will work together and one of the central countries, it looks like Zambia, will operate as a nucleus country. What is happening in Zambia will filter through to the other nations around it.
In mining, discoveries will take place as collaboration is established. Each of these nations has resources that can be built into the other to lift the region, and that is going to happen. Synchronisation in terms of mining will take place. Governments will not be the only parties that will work together well; there will be cooperation in business and economics.
A strong entrepreneurial spirit rests on the people of Africa and southern Africa. A spirit of oppression has tried to oppress the people. God says that He will not allow the quenching of that entrepreneurial spirit because it helps the people of Africa to survive their hardships.
Entrepreneurs are being raised up that have a heart for the people and are not interested in enriching themselves but want to make a difference in the lives of their people.
Apart from the railway infrastructure that will be built, this region will place a new focus on road infrastructure.
The leadership in this zone has been steeped in selfish protectionism, which is fired by corruption. This corruption is going to be exposed. There will be an inability for power-hungry individuals to dictate this process.
Witchcraft used in previous dispensations to gain power will be totally ineffective. The onslaught against witchcraft will reach an all-time high.
Many of the rulers and self-appointed leaders will be aghast at this loss of power. This power and hold on power will be lost overnight. The Lord says to the remnant of people who over generations have lifted the African people before Him: ‘The time of My intervention has come!’
God is changing the leadership to people of His choosing. They may not all be born again, but they are handpicked, like Pharaoh was handpicked for Egypt.
Learning from the mistakes of others
Leaders who were looking at Zimbabwe and South Africa’s leadership saw what has happened. The fear of the Lord has come over them, and they are now saying ‘I have to relinquish my post or my position this moment before I get under threat.’ Some leaders who have been in power for a very long time will suddenly step down and younger leaders and
better leaders will immediately fill those positions.
Muslim rebel groups will start pushing down to the southern nations. These nations must be vigilant in preparing to combat and protect their land from these groups. There is a significant influence from the Muslim Arabs and ISIS in the area. They have been coming in under false pretences, promising money to gain strongholds and obtain permission to do certain things.
A Muslim group linked to Al-Shabaab or ISIS is becoming prevalent. Terrorist attacks will happen in various nations in the southern African block and it will force these nations to beef up security, not just for them but in terms of the region. Much has been happening in the dark that will be revealed at these times. Many of these nations are harbouring known terrorists and this will come back to haunt and bite them.
In many countries, conflict will arise because of an invasion of the Muslim influence. In the past, many leaders and people in these countries would just bear up underneath the Muslim invasion, but now people will become much more vocal. Issues and concerns regarding secret alliances and connections with Muslims and influential people, also in government, that cause corruption will come to light. This will cause many people to rise and take hold of their country and take responsibility for their country. Many Christian voices and leaders in Christian communities and churches will gather together and stand up and become a voice to the people and to the government concerning the concerns of the people that they represent. The silent voice of Christians will be heard in the political arena, specifically against the invasion of the Muslim influence in these countries and how they are monopolising the economy and the government for their own selfish gain.
A vision was seen of landslides and natural disasters, and many people were in great distress. These landslides will cause much devastation, and leaders will not know what to do about this.
Areas where there were no cities, or where it was not conducive for the development of cities, will see brand new cities grow and become main capitals of new life and commerce. Some of these cities will be on the borders between two countries, almost like Strasbourg, bringing down physical borders separating the two countries.
The Lord is calling the people to be producers and not consumers only. People have been farming little plots for themselves and looking after only their families. There will be an extension of farm lands. The people must extend and must enlarge the areas to become better producers in Africa. There are places where resources must go to other countries, and countries who did not previously consider exporting will have an opportunity to export to America, Europe and other countries. The fruit and vegetables in these areas will be of high quality.
There is a man that has a vision for the unity of the whole region south of the equator and that man is doing much behind the scenes. His activities will not be presented on the media. Nobody knows yet what he is doing, but he is right there, like a Kofi Anan figure that has a neutral viewpoint of the region south of the equator. He will bring unity among groups of people and cause the prosperity that has been promised to the southern nations.
Renewable energy will become the mainstay of many new developments, bypassing the old technologies. New minerals and resources discovered within Africa will become the sources of development for these renewable technologies. African countries will become protective towards these resources and not allow nations like China to take control of them. Because of the amount of these renewable energy resources in Africa, Africa will become a hub of riches.
As the Middle East was the economic powerhouse because of oil, so Africa will become the new powerhouse because of resources for renewable energy. Countries in Africa will grow exponentially because of this. They will wisen up very quickly and develop strong relationships with one another and create strong borders and regulations to prevent other nations from abusing and manipulating their resources, as has been happening for centuries.
Stabilizing of governments
Stabilizing of governments in the region will start to take place. God is dealing with abusive leadership to bring stable governments within these nations. A new standard of leadership is arising in this area of the world. God is preparing these nations to become more accountable towards their people, the rest of the world and towards one another.
Where a secret brotherhood in the past would protect their selfish interests, some leaders of these nations will now call out and challenge other leaders to live and to abide by a higher standard.
Many of the countries within this region will change as new leadership is established. Political parties that have been in power for a long, long time will discover they suddenly lose power and favour amongst the people. New political parties, some of which have never been heard of, will come into power with a whole new mindset on how to run the government and how to run the nation. This change will bring rejuvenation within the nations and new foreign investment in the country. Many of the new modern leaders will not be bribed into selling off their country’s riches and minerals to multinational companies. They will have well defined guidelines according to which investors need to abide when functioning within the country. Greater focus will take place on local development, development of the people, agricultural development and development for the sake of the people in the country, instead of selling of resources and mineral riches to other countries and multinational companies.
There will be a strong emphasis on telecommunications as these nations come together. Strong telecommunication systems will be implemented. The internet and social media and various other methods of learning will come to the nations and they will embrace them. Telecommunications will play a strong role in education.
A vision was seen of little blocks and little groups of people with borders like fences around farms. These were not farms but different tribes that are being blocked from connecting with one another. There are definite lines drawn between the different tribes all over the southern region. It is very hard for the leaders to move forward when there is such a diversity of cultures and nations and everyone trying to make their nation the main one. There isn’t going to be a main one; a vision was seen of the Lord taking an eraser and erasing the lines so that the people have to mix and interact. They are forced into working with others.
Unions in South Africa will attempt to cross borders to establish union movements in other southern African nations below the equator. Little clusters of unions were specifically seen in Botswana and Namibia. Their success is not guaranteed, but discussions are taking place.
Weather patterns changing
A great change in the weather patterns over the whole southern part of Africa was seen. Weather front patterns will shift completely, coming from the central western part of Africa over southern Africa. This system is something that has never been seen before. This drastic change in weather patterns will cause meteorologists to revisit their models. Scientists will struggle to explain it. It will be a supernatural occurrence. Dire predictions of increased drought in southern Africa will have to be revised. The change in these weather patterns will cause an increase in rain in the whole region. Areas that did not know cold weather will experience cold weather and even snow for the first time. Desert areas will change into grassland and areas that had no agricultural potential will become a paradise of produce. Foreign food aid will not come from western countries anymore.
Different products in different countries have not been fully utilised.
People are looking across borders to see what they can get, instead of what they can give. Negotiating will occur to see what people can share to improve both countries and not just one country. They will be helping each other and growing the southern part of Africa as a whole.
Botswana A haven
Botswana is a safe haven, a jewel of Africa. Holiday homes will be built in the bush. These areas will be wisely planned and backed up with good legislation and policing. Some people will retire there, creating wealthy communities not only in terms of money but also because of knowledge and innovation. Many retirees carry vast intellectual property (IP) within themselves. They will be stimulated to share it, bringing benefits to the nation and region. These people will be from other African nations and European nations, especially the UK and Germany.
The border posts between South Africa and Botswana will be known for their effectiveness. Access between these two countries will become easier; it will be like an open doorway, which will have a huge positive impact for businesses in South Africa.
In the past Botswana was known as one of the greatest exporters of meat. The cattle industry in Botswana will flourish and they will once again live up to their past accomplishments in this regard.
Changes in Government
Change and shifting of government positions will take place for the better of the country. Governance in Botswana will become more effective, not only in properly legislation, but also by implementing the legislation.
In the past there were holes in the pockets of Botswana. The Lord is closing these holes and the economy of Botswana will stabilise more.
New mineral resources will be discovered.
New infrastructure is coming. There will be trees or just a small dirt road and the next moment a new tar road will be built. The national road of Botswana that goes to various nations will be upgraded.
Revamping the Health Sector
Botswana is having a medical crisis regarding AIDS; it is spreading a lot faster than what they are reporting. Many of the rural people are dying of AIDS. They simply bury the bodies and do not try to save the sick or prolong their lives. This has resulted in many orphans with no provision in place for their care. The new president will revamp the health department and health issues. New hospitals are being built and more mobile clinics will service the areas where there are no medical facilities
He will allocate more funds to look after the orphans. It is not in the African culture to have orphanages, but they don’t know what to do with these children that don’t have homes and families. Ultimately, they will manage the crisis.
The New Leader
The newly elected president of Botswana, President Masisi, will be a well-respected authority amongst the rest of the African leaders. He will have great influence. The new president will also promote development and integration of the different southern African countries. He will play a prominent role in advancing the integration of the economies, bringing down borders and making trade easier amongst the countries in southern Africa. President Masisi will be in power for five years and be re-elected for another five years. However, he will not complete the last five years. President Masisi will become known as the ‘new intelligentsia’, spearheading new ideas to transform old ideologies. He will have great influence and a positive impact on the people in the region. Phrases like ‘loyalism’ will replace ‘ethnicity’. In Botswana loyalism will fuel patriotism. In the bigger region, it will tear down borders between countries. More countries will work towards cross-border tourism and other cross-border ideas. These countries will thus be loyal towards a certain idea and create these cross-border joint ventures to the benefit of all.
Kenya will experience a season of strong economic growth and prosperity. Much trade will take place along the coastline between Kenya, Saudi Arabia, India and Mozambique. There will be heightened activity with pirating, but measures will be put in place to curb the negative effect.
Economic Hub God has earmarked Kenya to be an economic hub in Africa. There is resurgence in the economy. There will be much investment in the nation and that is why there has been an increase in terrorism; they have become a target. There are many wide-open spaces where the terrorists can hide, and they have spent years preparing their hideouts, getting ready for this season and this time.
God has an economic plan for Kenya and especially for the city of Nairobi. The banks and the economy of Nairobi are very strong, and it will set the pace for the whole nation. Manufacturing will increase with China wanting to start factories there to produce a variety of products, even a Coca-Cola factory, on the outskirts of Nairobi. The government will allow it, but they will put restrictions in place to promote employment.
More exporting of crops will be done, but instead of going overseas it will be going back into Africa; filtering further down to the south of the region.
Greater Influence Many nations in Africa will start looking at Kenya. In the past, this nation’s global influence was insignificant, but in future its GDP and its influence in the whole of Africa will grow rapidly. People will begin to ask how such a small country can have such a great influence.
Kenyan Airways Kenyan airways will receive financial support to reposition itself as competition for Ethiopian Airways. Great competition in aviation for flight routes across Africa and other parts of the world will start taking place in eastern Africa.
National Day of Prayer
A National Day of Prayer will be called because of the influence of the Gospel in government. More and more Christianity and religion will be taught in the schools.
The northern border will be heavily militarised because of Somali militants infiltrating the nation from there.
The Kenyan government will need to beef up security on their northern border because this is a breeding ground for terrorist training camps.
Some of the political leaders that have been negatively influenced to support these terrorist cells will be exposed. As things come to light, strong action will be taken by the Kenyan military which will weed out terrorist cells in the north.
Skirmishes and fighting will occur. There will be fear among the people and they will be running scared. This will also affect the provision that people have in Kenya. Food security will be threatened.
There will be an increase of terrorist activity in Kenya. A terrorist group like Boko Haram will try to take over certain regions and areas. The USA and UK Intelligence services will join forces with Kenya to try to prevent this. Ethiopia and Kenya will take hands and support each other in seeking solutions for the violence and terrorism.
Missions, missionaries and ministries and not NGOs (non-governmental organisations) must concentrate on this nation again. It will still be a turbulent season with much conflict in Kenya due to the radical Muslim tide. When entering these areas, whether it is for missions or business, be very wise and make sure that you should be there. This will not occur in the whole of Kenya but relates to the hotspots in the northern regions, such as Mombasa and the eastern coastal regions.
The people in these sensitive regions are developing a keen ear, with regards to their safety, and will honour voices of those moving in the supernatural. The Lord will reveal hidden terrorist cells to people in these areas and this will reach the ears of those who can do something about it. In so doing, a buffer-zone will be created that protects the rest of the nation and this southern zone from atrocities being planned. Most of the radical Muslim attacks will be in the northern parts of this zone and Kenya will bear the brunt of what is planned. The Lord has a counter-plan and as they heed it, many big cells will be broken, and many weapons will be confiscated.
Greater conflict between Muslims and Christians will occur and much prayer for missionaries will be required as they go to evangelise certain areas.
Tourism Kenya will receive tremendous investment from Germany into the tourist industry and its growth. Germany will assist in funding the whole of the eastern side of the country’s tourist border. Many new hotels and much revamping will take place. The airport will be upgraded.
The seafront will be upgraded for tourism. A vision was seen of umbrellas going up in the sand at the beach again; people will be lying on the beach. The government are going to use the opportunity to bring more money into the country.
Water Crisis Kenya will experience major water problems. There will be an outbreak of cholera and as a result, the government will be calling on Israel to help solve this problem. Israel does have influence in the nation, but its influence will become greater.
Women’s Movement A strong women’s movement will arise in Kenya as the government and present leadership become much more aware of the value of women in the nation. The whole approach toward women will be changing.
Please note that the words for Lesotho were not received during the Prophets Round Table gathering, but were prophesied by the Round Table members at a later date. The members of the Round Table agreed to add it to the book.
Lesotho will be entering a flourishing season as a nation. The work done in the background in terms of the economy and government will become very evident. The prayers and fasting of believers in this nation for change and breakthrough will be answered and many testimonies will be heard of the Lord‘s grace over the nation. Lesotho will truly become a jewel in the crown of Southern Africa.
A vision was seen of half a coffee bean being cut in half and one half being trampled underfoot. The emerging coffee industry in Lesotho will come under pressure in 2019.
District of Butha-Buthe
The attention of the nation will be drawn to the northern district of Butha-Buthe regarding a project that will be started, which will bring breakthrough for the people in that area. It shall be something that results in uplifting the lives of many, especially those who are struggling and are less privileged. The Butha-Buthe district shall speak to the nation in this next season. Even the way crime shall drop and the police force in that district shall gain impressive success; it shall be something that makes an impression.
Economic growth will continue in the nation. Corruption will still receive much attention and a cleaning out of the public service will continue.
Riches in a nation are often seen as the inherent wealth of mineral riches. This is not the case in Lesotho, although it has some hidden treasures. The present wealth of Lesotho is their ability to capture water in a semiarid region. This has only been realised to a very small degree.
Decisionmakers think they have now capitalised on it and are trying to find the ‘new’ thing for Lesotho. They are so busy trying to conjure up something unique and new that they have lost sight of their jewel – water. They need to focus on this capability of capturing water with rigorous attention and planning. The expertise and planning capabilities for this venture will not be found in the nation – they need to be gleaned from the international market with great circumspection as some of the new colonial powers in Africa such as China cannot wait to get their hands on it. This is a political/spiritual warning and does not mean individual apolitical Chinese engineers and expertise cannot be merged into a truly international team which unlocks this potential on behalf of Lesotho.
Influx of NGOs
There has been an influx of NGOs that has been good for the nation and brought informal education and training. This is being encouraged and room made for them to participate more easily.
Intercession Malachi 3:12: “You’ll be voted ‘Happiest Nation.’ You’ll experience what it’s like to be a country of grace.” God-of-the-Angel-Armies say so” (The Message).
There is a call for the intercessors in Lesotho to go up the mountains and intercede for the nation of Lesotho. The spiritual high places of old need to be taken down and be replaced with the grace of the Lord to become the nation described in Mal. 3:12.
Investing in Education
More money will be invested and spent on education. There is a need for this. People in education, teachers specifically, have been asking for this for some time and to them it feels like there is no hope and they have given up. The investment will have to be made for the future and it will be worth it.
Mining They have been mining for minerals and they have dug very deep into the ground but with not much luck. Something will be found, but it’s not what they expected. It will be a surprising find but a much better find. This will provide more jobs and more investment in this field.
Politics Political stability and peace have returned to Lesotho. A forward-thinking attitude will be seen in an uncommon spirit of unity amongst politicians and parliamentarians. The new government has already shown a measure of change. This will continue as good relationships form in parliament and politics.
The nation of Lesotho is entering a very sensitive time. There is a promise of economic growth for Lesotho. There is a need for the president and his advisors to reassess old policies and implement new policies to strengthen economic growth. Investigation into successful policies and strategies other nations have implemented will assist them going forward. An inter-ministerial team comprising economists, consultants from various sectors and business leaders must be established to advise on the way forward. Opportunities for direct foreign investment will occur, but it’s very important that the ‘fine print’ be investigated before agreements are concluded. If the implemented policies do not benefit the people of Lesotho, Lesotho will experience tougher financial times ahead. So, the strategies put in place in 2019 will be of vital importance and will affect the mood of the people as well as the future of the current leadership.
Some ministers will reach abroad for investment in Lesotho. Rules and regulations for foreign building investment will be reduced to speed up investment. Cumbersome municipal rules and regulations for business investment will be addressed.
Prominent Leader Stepping Down
A leader high in government is retiring; this is not a moment of dishonour, but it is a leader resting after running his course. Many shall be surprised by this unusual event. The Lord is already dealing with this leader regarding this matter. There is a young leader that will emerge and an organised march taking place will be marked by young people who are fighting for the nation to rise to the next level in the purpose of God.
Relationships between the government of Lesotho and the South African government will strengthen with many new partnerships in various areas of society.
New-found minerals and riches will bring job opportunities and give Lesotho a stronger hand in negotiating trade agreements. Many Basotho will return from South Africa to their own country because of these new job opportunities. Those that qualified themselves in South African universities and found good paying jobs in South Africa will be given incentives to bring their expertise back to Lesotho. A new intellectual class of young working professionals will arise in the country and bring much hope for the future and much growth. God is also raising up a new generation of leaders that will be able to take over the reins of the country in the future.
The government of Lesotho will start to find their own voice and will not merely toe the line of what South Africa expect from them.
Season of Celebrations
A vision was seen of big celebrations for the country with large scale preparations and much excitement amongst the people. Everyone is very happy and it’s as if they have been waiting for this for a long time. This event will have many invited dignitaries. The red carpets will be rolled out and no expense will be spared. It will be worth it as this event will bring a great uplifting to the people and a stronger unity.
The Church The hearts of political leaders and those in society will be with the Church of Lesotho. Many leaders will have an open door and ear for the Church. They will see themselves as an extension of what the Lord has called the Church of Lesotho to become: a brilliant and radiant people showing and declaring the kingdom of Christ to the Southern African Nations.
A clear line will be drawn between Christians and the rest of the nation. There are ministers that need to get their lives in order; God is calling them closer to Him. But if the nation chooses to continue in idolatry, many calamities will come to the nation. Diseases never seen before in Lesotho will become evident among those who choose to walk and stay in darkness.
The church needs to come together and earnestly pray for the leaders of the nation. Competition between churches must stop and they must unite because the church will play a vital role in the good future God has planned for Lesotho.
The Royal Family There shall be a special moment of honour before the nation that shall be granted to the king and the royal family. Out of the extended royal family shall come a voice that carries great authority that will speak and give direction. This individual will be speaking with such clarity that he stirs many within the nation. The media will even make a show of this, but in a good way.
A vision was seen of the king taking off his crown and putting it aside; his lapel that has many honorary medals and acknowledgements is being turned inwards so that it could not be seen. The king will be seen putting his kingship aside to stand with regular men and address specific matters.
Voice for the Poor There is a well-known poet who has his poetry presented in schools that will become a voice and advocate for the poor and the hungry. He will put on street dramas and stir up sentiment. People will become proud of their flag and national pride is on the rise.
Weather Patterns A very cold and wet season will bring abundance of water to the nation and will enable the country to supply South Africa with much needed water.
Growth in the agricultural sector will be sporadic, where certain areas will do better than others due to climate change and its effects on rainfall. This will force farmers to further invest in agricultural related technology which will increase yields in difficult times. Many farms have very fertile soil, but due to changing climate conditions some farmers will need to change their focus and farm different crops.
Many farmers are preparing to leave South Africa due to uncertainty around land ownership, but the Lord says that they should stay and not leave.
Abandoned Farms lands
Contracts will be signed, and an understanding will be reached with regards to the land agreements. Farms that have been abandoned will be ploughed and planted again. Fields and fields of crops and prosperity were seen. It will not all be for export but for local consumption as well. Imports will therefore decrease, and this will also lead to the strengthening of our economy.
A New Financing Model
Banks and financial institutions will develop a new financing model for farmers. It will change from placing the market value of the land as collateral to these institutions looking at the profit margin of the farms over the past several years.
More and more farmers will come together to form separate legal entities like trusts and close corporations. The farms will then be run as a business where everyone will make money, but the farmers are not in a position to lose everything.
Black farmers will increase. Government will take a more active role in assisting emerging farmers with the proper management of agricultural land by creating a policy in this regard. The biblical principal of a seventh rest year will be reintroduced (Lev 25: 4).
Cattle Industry A vision was seen of many calves being born in the cattle industry. The cattle industry is going to expand phenomenally in the next year. It will not just be a restocking of the stock that had to be slaughtered in the drought. It will be stock that will be exported to other nations and not just African nations but also to other countries. There will be a strong focus on cattle breeding.
Crop Farming The next season will be a normal to slightly above average season for crop production. The water crisis in the Western Cape will be alleviated. This region must see to it that agriculture is environmentally sound. Legislation should be devised that requires farmers to apply for opening new lands for cropping. This cannot be done indiscriminately anymore.
This will be a normal raining season. Farmers and people in agriculture should not try and force the season or try to beat the season and try to plant too early or later; this strategy is not going to work. Stay within the known planting and harvesting season for the area.
Some areas that only had a single annual crop will produce bi-annual crops because of a longer period of rain. Record crops will be produced in certain areas.
Eastern Cape The economic pressure experienced in the Eastern Cape is the motivation behind the spirit to reclaim land, and bring back the wealth and prosperity from the past. It used to tick along quite well and many people populated the rural areas. These rural areas have become sparsely populated and many elderly people are left behind. The elderly people have an ‘old people mentality’ which causes everything to slow down.
NGOs are trying to infiltrate the area with JoJo tanks to ensure water security so that people can start farming again, even on a small scale. They want to motivate people to remember their past and their farming experience. There are many chicken farms starting up in the Eastern Cape with informal and organic chicken farming. This may not be on a large scale with breeding sheds but rather informal organic chicken farming out in the open. They will be highly regarded and valued.
Fires A vision was seen of large fires burning grazing ground in the northwest and the northern part of the Cape. Special care in having firebreaks in place will be quite important as there will be strong winds in dry seasons, which can cause fires.
Game farming has been under tremendous pressure in the last few years; this is changing and there will be a slow build up in this section of agriculture.
The bee population is under attack. There will be a high demand for pure honey to replace sugar.
There will be a decline or stop of poultry imports into South Africa and other parts of the region. People will have to keep their own chickens in their backyard or in pens.
Focus will be placed on proteas. More of these flowers will be planted. In areas where there were plants in previous years, new plants will be grown.
Policies that government will put in place to protect farmers and their land will emerge There has been much debt, mismanagement and lack of training. The Afrikaner farmers will be co-labouring with the government in terms of restoration of farming. On the other hand, there will be labour problems and unrest on these farms in the interim until these policies are implemented. It is not an easy road forward for the agriculture sector.
Saving Our Sea life
A vision of a sea turtle being saved out of the water was seen. There will be a focus on saving the sea turtle this coming year; the decline in numbers of the sea turtle will threaten this endangered species. A specific turtle species is at high risk; it will become known that it is on the brink of extinction.
A vision was seen of dead sugarcane; the cause wasn’t drought or a pest, but over watering.
Sweet Corn Sweet corn crops could be in trouble with black spots on the crop; the problem is with the crop dusting. They are using a very strong insecticide to dust the crops. The insecticide must be measured correctly and they must reconsider what they are using to cropdust; they must use the proper dilutions, and the dilutions must be checked.
Water Technology and understanding regarding water conservation and usage will come almost too late to help the country with its current water crisis. But this new development will assist the agriculture sector to use water differently. This technology will be exported to other countries and help them overcome their water needs.
Wine Industry There will be rain in the Western Cape and the wine industry will be resurrected. New wines will be discovered. A type of ‘cross-breeding’ of seeds for a new variety of grapes will be released and this is going to bring in a new wine.
Wine farmers must be alert to act against rust as a result of the increase in rain.
The economy will improve slightly but not in leaps and bounds. The economy in 2019 will experience two halves: the pre-election economy and the post-election economy.
The government at this stage is very slow in changing policy because they are waiting for the election. After the election, policy certainty will emerge as government makes very drastic changes. South Africa’s credit rating will increase to investment grade after the election. If policy certainty returns to the country, investment will return very quickly. The lat
ter part of 2019 will seem quite different from the first part of 2019.
The South African economy will improve and monetary policies are going to change as South Africa is restored, in a sense being one of the bread baskets of Africa. Many prophecies that have been made over the nation will be fulfilled.
Banking Industry There is a blatant cell of corruption in Standard Bank that even issues death threats. They will be exposed in an explosive way and the participants will be tried and jailed. This will wake up the banking industry to focus on internal corruption and security. What will be uncovered will be shocking. This tendency is a direct legacy of the Zuma era of greed and entitlement.
A revamp of the banking system in our nation in terms of protecting the poor and restructuring of bank charges will occur. The cash system will be done away with and there will be a strong move to bring rural communities online.
Capitec will be at the forefront of changing the banking industry in South Africa. There are three or four innovative people in Capitec whose ideas will make banking accessible to even people in the rural areas of South Africa. Banking will be done in ‘the cloud’ and there will be a cardless system of banking. Government is almost going to be caught unaware, and it will hastily have to draft legislation to regulate this.
Banks and their policies will come under more scrutiny with various bad practices such as over-billing coming to light.
Irritation levels are increasing amongst black South Africans in relation to the Black Economic Empowerment policies. More and more they feel that these policies created favouritism in the application of these policies from government in the awarding of tenders and that it lost its purpose of empowerment.
Relationships between government and big business will improve. Government led by President Ramaphosa and his appointed team will work together with big business to form new and streamline older policies, which will boost the economy and assist in creating employment. South Africa will only start seeing the results at the end of 2019.
People must be wary of Bitcoin as there will be a great influence and manipulation of China and Russia in the Bitcoin market and they can drop the market at any time.
Building and Construction Industry
The land issue in 2019 will stall building and construction will slow down. Many bricklayers and low-level workers will be out of work because the land issue is going to slow any progressive building.
The building industry will continue its lull in 2019 and construction companies will have to investigate and utilise other avenues of investment in other neighbouring African countries like Mozambique. This will take place over an extended season before the economic environment changes in South Africa. Construction companies will have to branch out not only in construction, but partner with other businesses who can utilise their skills and form mutually beneficial relationships.
Catching up A vision was seen of a train going downhill; the brakes have been applied to this train and it suddenly goes much slower. The economy has been running away from the people and suddenly it is coming into reach again.
Commodities Precious metal prices will increase. A new emphasis on rare and unique metals will occur globally within the next two years. Now is the time to invest in the precious metal category.
Diamonds The value of diamonds will increase. There will be a resurgence of diamonds to be used almost as a stop gap, like a saving.
Entrepreneurial Business This season of uncertainty will be a season for ingenuity to increase and entrepreneurial business to bring solutions to the business environment. It is the best soil to bring new business and new solutions to overcome the difficult environment. These new businesses will grow strong roots to facilitate the coming growth in the season of prosperity that will follow.
There will be a significant increase in new entrepreneurial products, entrepreneurship and new ideas. South Africans are very good with providing innovative ideas; we use better designs and good business acumen to our advantage. There will also be investment in neighbouring countries.
Infrastructure Development Infrastructure development in South Africa will experience a boost from 2019 onwards. A concerted effort in using the money allocated for infrastructure development will commence. The National Development Plan will start to take effect with new commitment from government to spend the money where it was promised and to use the money wisely.
The investment markets will stabilise and start posting gains again. Companies such as Investec have a solid trading platform whilst others, even though they have been trading for many years, have a fly-bynight approach that will be exposed for undue profit taking. The market in South Africa is going to naturally hedge against a financial bubble and potential market crash. There is a special favour on traders who endeavour to be good stewards on behalf of their investors.
A revamp of the manufacturing sector, especially the clothing and motoring industry, will happen.
Some vehicle manufacturers that left the country will be returning to the country at the end of 2019, specifically Chevrolet.
There has been a problem with the platinum price. The tribe of Royal Bafokeng and the king of the Royal Bafokeng people are making demands and removing the checks and balances on the finance. It seems that all the money is gone; everything that they have earned has just drained away.
New accountants consisting of young men are going to stand up against the king and put the checks and balances back and stop all the draining of the finance because it is there for the investment into the people.
Reconsidering Taxes and Fuel Levies
There will be a commission appointed to reconsider taxes and fuel levies; it will alleviate pressure on individuals and companies.
Great investment in renewable energy will happen in 2019. Renewable energy will be a major mover in the next year and it will be an important employer and new jobs will be created in the next year.
The president is calling on the Reserve Bank to slacken policies for money brought into the country. The reason is that the money needs to reach the people for their upliftment.
Small Business Development The government will be involved in small business development and the relaxing of the red tape around small business. A support system in small business development will be implemented. A new minister will be placed in charge of small business development; this is somebody that is innovative and has very good ideas and a very different approach, different from what was seen before.
The Democratic Alliance will be leading business development. With the ideas that they submit, they have a real vision in terms of small business development. As these policies are implemented, it will take pressure off the national government.
Businesses, especially small businesses, struggle to be profitable and at the same time comply with all legislative prescripts applicable. The overlegislation stifles innovative ideas that should flourish in a free market economy. This issue will not be addressed in 2019, but within three years after the election in 2019, there will be a relaxation in legislation in this area.
Stock Market A picture was seen where the lights go off at the stock market. The electricity is cut, and it seems like a blackout. The Lord will reveal the manipulation of information in the stock market.
Much positive sentiment is expected, but there will be no major growth in 2019.
Treasury will have to do a real balancing act for the first three quarters
of 2019. In the last quarter of the year, a positive turn-around will occur quite fast, with foreign investment coming into South Africa to invest in business, agriculture and infrastructure development. There will also be a significant focus next year on ethical business practices throughout the entire business sector.
The South African Rand There will be many fluctuations in the rand and the economy for the next year. This period of fluctuation and uncertainty will be a preparation for sudden and fast growth lying ahead in the season to come.
Tax Renovations Renovation in the tax system will be implemented and promoted from the end of 2019. The whole tax system of South Africa will be revisited.
Innovative ideas and technologies will enable the simplifying of tax law and reduction of cumbersome regulation. Modernising and streamlining of tax laws and the tax system will ensure fair tax practices. Tax dodgers will not be able to hide anymore. This new tax system will be an example for other nations and will spread through the rest of Africa.
From 2020 the trust and confidence in South Africa and its economy will be restored and great and many investments will take place.
Nobody knows exactly what will happen in the political realm. There is a lot of chatter behind closed doors. The present road will not take the country forward. A catalyst, almost a seismic shift, is needed. There will be a point at which everything suddenly comes together. Individuals will step out boldly in this new strategy. A break is needed from one political system to move into a completely new political system.
This is not just for the ANC but also the DA. The youth under the age of 30 will emerge and they need to be included in the conversations. They are not as militant as we are made to believe. They have a heart for the nation. Ignore them at your own peril.
A Coming Together
Behind closed doors, a well-respected elderly gentleman is trying to bring major political leaders together to negotiate ways to work together going forward, but some of the leaders are only interested in their own agendas. To the public it might appear that President Ramaphosa and Mmusi Maimane are enemies, but they are meeting in secret trying to
find a common purpose to help the country.
A vision of a dragon head was seen; the focus was on the ancientness of the monster. There has been a tribal regression within the ANC party. It will become very clear that the ANC is not current; the language is a language of regression. Socialistic policies will weaken them and will not give them the results they want in the 2019 election.
This will force the party to reconsider its strategy and will lead to an embracing of the new strategy that President Ramaphosa wants to introduce, but he is resisted by other leaders. Their previous alliances in the past will not enter the alliances on the same basis again, although they will align together. The alliance partners will be much stronger in specifying what they want and setting out mandates for the party.
There is a tension within President Ramaphosa between capitalism and communism. Politically, there will be a definite increase in communist ideologies and the SACP will become a voice to be reckoned with.
Closer to the elections there will be a big surge to influence the public and new alliances will be formed, strengthening the parties that stand against the ANC. Many more women will be in prominent positions in different parties and they will reach out to the women voters and have more influence over them.
Coalition Local Government
In local government there will be an increase in coalition governance. As a result of this inherent checks and balances in the system, financial stability will increase in these municipalities.
Drastic Change in Political Landscape The divisions within political parties will become clear. Factions and break-away groups will begin appearing. The political environment in South Africa will change drastically in 2019. It will be the greatest change since the 1994 elections. Change in this environment will force the old political elite to adjust their strategy. They will not be able to rely on their old defences and old rhetoric. Their stance in every area will have to be revisited. One will see politician’s positions on certain issues changing drastically.
Through the change in the political environment, the doors will be open for almost anyone to join the political scene. There will be many voices and many choices. Some of the opportunists entering the political scene will have no integrity. They will gain a disturbing amount of support. But the pressure of the race and the amount of media exposure that these people will receive will in the end expose them for who they are and cause great disappointment amongst their supporters. The eyes of the public will be opened. They will not be fooled by any person making promises anymore. The electorate in South Africa will wisen up.
The DA will advance strongly in 2019. The party will gain greater penetration in the rural areas. The internal divisions will be smoothed out, and many new faces will emerge within the DA. Those that were sitting at the back and looking at the leadership have seen the integrity within the heart of the current leader. This will convince the younger leaders to step out and bring an end to divisions.
Rural people in South Africa will be politically educated. The main training focus will be on the older people concerning voting and what their votes mean; it will increase the votes for that specific party in that area.
The younger people are looking for a plan or party that can work for them.
For a long time, the political system produced no benefits for them and they are looking to the DA to produce a workable solution.
Mmusi Maimane will be a type of civil rights leader being raised up within South Africa. Where emphasis has been on party politics in terms of the party structure within the nation, the emphasis will be changing to raising up people of moral voice and moral fibre. This will bring an emphasis on the tremendous divide between rich and poor, and he will seek to bring reconciliation between that which was past and that which is now.
He will provide visionary leadership in a moral sense, which will influence the nation.
Because of this, he will gain great prominence even in parliament and President Ramaphosa will begin to recognise this voice. It was even said he is the new Mandela of the future. This and a split in the ANC will cause what has been prophesied: an alliance of the two. Although they are two separate parties, there will be an alliance. An urban legend released just before the election will bring the ANC into disrepute, and because of it they will be losing a big block of the vote.
Money will be wrongfully spent on the elections instead of its intended purpose, which was for the poor, and this corruption to buy votes instead of helping the poor will be exposed. The political landscape from 2019 onwards is changing.
Economic Freedom Front (EFF)
A great division is coming within the EFF; a leadership split between Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu will split the party down the middle. This division will cause a disintegration of the regional structures.
As they publicly attack each other, public brawls will break out at EFF gatherings.
In public conversations and public debate where they must oppose the other parties, they will start opposing each other. It will end in a brawl and both parties of the EFF will be removed. These factions will cause an implosion of its support base, which in the end will see the EFF not featuring in a strong position in parliament in the coming election.
A vision of a big red vehicle hitting voters at a voting station was seen. As it hits, many people in red emerged from the vehicle. The EFF will try to influence and intimidate people during the elections. The IEC must be vigilant.
Elections The voters in South Africa are maturing and even the uneducated people are knowledgeable about politics and will vote responsibly.
Because of the frustration of voters with service delivery, especially in the rural areas, people will voice their concerns with the election system in South Africa. After the election in 2019, people will increasingly say that they want to vote for a person and not only a political party.
Elite Network Fails There seems to be one network of politicians, political allies and people of influence. Their influence will end towards the end of 2019. A completely new network will emerge of younger people that have a different viewpoint and do not have the same political system where being a politician was seen as a job and for the revolutionaries. In the old system, there was trickery, like in an old boys’ club. There was much networking with various people and one needed the Robben Island experience to be part of it; that is not relevant anymore.
New Breed of Political Leaders The last months of 2019 will bring a new breed of politician. This new breed will not be looking for personal gain but will be focused on what they can do. Many of them want to make a name for themselves. They want to be seen and they want to be known as the one who drove the new move. The Lord is going to remove the inner motivations and bring the change that He wants to bring. They will not be looking for rewards. With this new breed, the emphasis will not be on how well they speak or how presentable they are. They know that many of those that spoke well in the past also spoke with a forked tongue; they said one thing and they did another. This new breed of political animal is going to be more spontaneous and won’t have spin doctors and people writing their speeches. It will come from a heart that has changed. They will not be from a particular political party, but this new breed will infiltrate all the parties.
In 2020 and 2021, we will see a whole new coalition of parties; President Ramaphosa and Mr. Maimane will be seen in a coalition together.
Political Landscape The political landscape looks like a box of Smarties. Everyone will be trying to voice their opinions and gain favour with the people in the next season. There will be many voices pulling the people into different directions and unfortunately, small pockets of violence will occur. We need to pray against popular rhetoric such as racial slurs, which stirs up violence in the nation. There will also be unusual and unexpected alliances in the next season.
The Electoral Commission The Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) is already looking at methods to safeguard the counting of votes for the election in 2019. Talks in this regard started already after the ANC conference held in December 2017.
Big changes are coming for traditional leaders. Their role and focus will change; they will actively serve their communities and become less dependent on government.
A huge dip in labour union membership is coming and it is directly linked to the growth of the middle class in the economy. People in the middle class don’t trust union representatives to represent them and want to do it themselves. However, small radical unions will keep emerging; they will come and go, as they are linked with the splitting in the factions within the ANC.
Being a unionist will no longer be a requirement if you want to follow a political career, as was the belief in the past. More and more political leaders will emerge from community-based organisations.
Western Cape to Gauteng People will be moving back from the Western Province to the Gauteng area. They will be leaving their jobs and coming back to their previously held jobs in Gauteng.
Government A Cleaning Out
There is a move in Luthuli House to clean out the allies of old President Zuma. This process has already started in the North West Province, and it will move on to the Free State, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal. As conflict will follow this cleanup process, the army will be an effective tool in managing the social unrest in communities.
There will be a huge struggle to normalise the situation in government so that good governance can take place. Many ineffective public servants will be weeded out and they will not necessarily be replaced because there is no need for that particular post. There will be an appetite for good service delivery, and debt collection at municipal level will improve, although it will still not be effective.
Many municipalities’ debts will still have to be written off. Good, solid civil servants will be recognised despite creed or colour. They will receive promotions that they were denied in the past as they were overrun by individuals driven by power and greed.
A True Guardian The government will become the true guardian again; they were plundering and looking after themselves. But they will start becoming the guardian again, protecting and caring and helping the people of South Africa. The health care system of South African hospitals and clinics is being upgraded. There was a similar project in the past, but it was stopped because the money was taken away and used somewhere else. Hospitals that had been planned for years are being built, especially in rural areas.
The red tape is being cut; long and tedious processes in government because of corruption are being cut. New strategies to lessen corruption will be put in place when they do purchasing and procurement in government.
The government is seen to be placing band aids on problems, which are not really helping. They are trying to cover major issues and hope that it will fix itself.
Cyril Ramaphosa is again being controlled like a puppet because he still wants to please those around him. He does things to keep the peace and he needs to step up and take control. He needs to call the shots and not please people but bring healing to the country from within.
There are also ministers in certain positions that are wrong for that position. A cleansing process and reshuffling will take place so that they can fit the portfolios that suit them.
A new breed of civil servants is being raised up. This new type of servant has an understanding of serving the people and the communities and not themselves. Many civil servants and political leaders will become more involved in their communities; their job descriptions are changing and they have to give account in terms of them working in their individual communities. No longer will it be just a job behind a desk, but they will have to be involved in the communities. It will start in the cities and then move to the rural communities.
In the coming years there will be a move to decrease the number of public servants. This will not be a popular decision and there will be a lot of discussions behind closed doors as to how to manage such a process.
Government cannot afford the salary bill anymore. This decision will be implemented incrementally over several years.
Community Court Resurgence
A resurgence of community courts and low-level prosecutions will be happening and taking place far quicker. Digitisation of criminal dockets will replace the current docket system in the courts, which will cause the courts to be much more effective throughout the nation. It will enable the police to become more effective in their policing and liaising with the courts; this will cause a complete change in our nation.
Abuse of contracts and tenders for IT infrastructure development within government institutions will be revealed and will cause many to be prosecuted. This corruption in IT has hindered the progress in public services as different systems were implemented in different departments that did not integrate with each other.
A new centralised system will be developed with experts being contracted from across the world. This system will come at a high cost. But contrary to the dysfunctional systems implemented in the past, this system will vindicate itself. It will integrate many departments and make administration easier.
Those that focus on corruption will find it very difficult to continue working in their posts and they will slowly but surely start vacating their positions.
Government institutions, known in the past for its bad service delivery and rude staff, will become an example of good professional service.
Public service workers will also be treated better and given better conditions to work in. This will give them pride in their work that will be reflected in the way that they treat the public.
Government vs Unions The new government will send a strong message to public sector workers to get to work and stop wasting time and money. Strong measures will be taken against unproductive workers. This will put the government in conflict with unions. The government will stick to its guns and make sure that any actions taken against workers will be above board and above reproach.
The expropriation of land issue will become a major conflict point in the rural areas. This will be one of the reasons why this issue is going to be put on ice and a new strategy will have to be found to deal with this issue. There will be no land expropriation without compensation.
Local Government Coalitions In the coming elections, the ANC will not perform as they have planned. In the municipal elections, this performance will cause them to make coalitions with parties that they did not consider before.
Minimum Wage There is disgruntlement about the minimum wage. The Lord says that the minimum wage is from Him and the opposition against it will just disappear.
National Development Plan
There will be a renewed focus on the National Development Plan which will cause investment in the country to return as well as to government departments.
No More Consultants
Fewer consultants will be used by Government. Public servants with the right expertise are employed with competitive salaries.
Older Faces Resurface
In many government institutions, departments and high positions, elderly ANC leaders of the past will resurface. They will serve for a period of five years and bring stability to those institutions. The interference of politicians in the administration in government will lessen over the years.
Public Office Bearers
Ace Magashule will also be prosecuted and removed from the top six of the ANC. After the elections, David Mabuza will no more be the deputy president. After the 2019 elections, men of character and stature will be elected to public office.
Public Sector Wage Bill
The public-sector wage bill will be reduced, and various departments will merge. This will not be popular amongst many of the leaders, but it will be done and implemented. There will be a streamlining regarding leadership in public enterprises, which will be led by the Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan.
These changes will bring efficiency to various departments. More private and public partnerships will happen and even selling off of some of the state assets. The government will start implementing more spending on infrastructure and developments to assist with unemployment, but this will only be a short-term solution.
Municipalities and departments will have much stricter controls and auditing when it comes to spending money so that they can be run more efficiently, and people will be taken to task when things go wrong. Those who are in positions because of nepotism will not last during 2019. Many changes will happen in 2019 especially after the elections, where there will be stricter controls when filling positions in government.
Racism has been used increasingly over the past five years as a tool to bring division between people. We will see good judgments from the courts about racism, and racism will become ineffective in bringing division between people groups.
Service Delivery Service delivery in South Africa will still stay a crucial issue in the next couple of years.
State owned enterprises (SOEs) For SOEs like SAA and PRASA, the boards that will be appointed will bring a turnaround strategy that will bear fruit much earlier than anticipated, which will give a fresh breath of air for other departments in the government. Pravin Gordhan has a strategy and God is going to use him in this season and even in the season after this, and those appointed will function well.
There has been much talk about selling off these state assets, but this would not be wise as in the following years they will become fruitful again and contribute to the economy.
Stability is coming in Social Development, especially in the social grant system. The effectiveness of paying and awarding the grants will increase and is already increasing.
The church and Christian leaders in government will be working together with a strong emphasis on family and the responsibility of the family in terms of the social demographics of the nation.
South African Police Service The SAPS is facing a dilemma in that older members outnumber young members in the service. This will be addressed by offering members voluntary severance packages.
Special Economic Zones Special economic zones (SEZs) will be a game changer in the economy. The planned SEZs will have a major impact on the economy. We will see government place women in renewable energy developments. The scale of these developments will come as a shock to many.
At times, it will seem that the whole debacle of state capture and the Gupta family is going nowhere, but they will be prosecuted and will give account for the millions that have left the country.
Government is very seriously looking at increasing the number of teachers because it feels that is the only way to address the spirit of poverty that is prevalent in South Africa.
There will be a technology upgrade coming where people can use an app to access services at the municipality or government institutions. There will not be long queues to get things done at government institutions.
There are discussions about moving the judicial system from Bloemfontein. There is rot in the corridor and a lot of negativity around the judicial system and a move from Bloemfontein to another place is seen as a way for the judicial system to regain its integrity. There is talk of a total cleanup.
The South African justice system is one of the strongest in Africa. The Chief Justice of South Africa will be travelling to various nations in Africa where he has been invited. There will be teaching and lecturing in terms of the justice systems of individual nations in Africa.
The magistrate and maintenance courts will become more effective as first point of entry for community members. This effectiveness will also spread to the Master of the High Court. The Master of the High Court will open more offices, especially in rural areas.
Litigation in South Africa will become more streamlined due to the effectiveness of mediation. Litigation will be shortened because of mediation. Mediation is also a cheaper process and people will choose this process for that reason.
There will be a huge scandal in the navy; the chief of the navy was seen being axed and because of the huge scandal, heads would roll in the lower ranks, to clean from the top down.
Training Colleges The government will be opening training colleges for artisans where they had been closed. There will be a strong emphasis on bricklaying and other trades to establish a new breed of artisans.
Trevor Manual Trevor Manual will have a very clear voice in government and when he speaks, they listen because he is the voice of wisdom. He has proved his integrity and loyalty and he doesn’t interfere where he doesn’t have to.
South African church Apostles and Prophets
Apostles and prophets will be raised up to direct this nation. They will have a direct impact in terms of government and the future of this nation. A new relationship and working together of government and the apostle and prophet will develop.
Burning the Chaff A vision was seen of a slow-burning veld fire. The fields became flat with no trees or bushes, only grass. The fire burnt through the grass slowly; the crackling of the fire could be heard and the heat could be felt. The Lord is slowly burning out all the chaff and all the negative influences in the church. More will be exposed, especially in 2019. This is to prepare the field for the new shoots, new green leaves and green grass that will grow in that space. We should not be alarmed to see religious issues being exposed in the media. God knows who He must keep and who He wants to be removed.
“His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Matt. 3: 12 NIV).
Christians in Politics People with genuine hearts will start speaking about God and displaying their Christianity, not only in words but also in deeds and in the way they handle things in the political environment. The way parliamentarians treat each other will change. An honour will come in the way that they debate and confront one another. Cyril Ramaphosa and Mmusi Maimane will lead by example. The honour and respect that they will show one another will influence the lower ranks. Many lower ranking officials will be emboldened to follow their example. The atmosphere in parliament will change from countering each other’s efforts to working together across party lines, even though they disagree with each other. The boldness to speak and live Christian values will affect this change.
Coming to the Forefront
God wants to bring the church to the forefront as a solution to challenges facing South Africans such as poverty, sickness and joblessness.
God will give business people much favour and financial prosperity in the coming year to make an impact on society. A vision was seen where people were queuing in churches in search of assistance. Previously where citizens were depending on the government to provide solutions, a change will come where people will turn to churches for help. Businesses that are kingdom minded will expand even in difficult economic times, so that they can assist in creating employment. God will give the church solutions to help resolve the complex problems facing South Africa. Many will receive visions and dreams providing them with strategies which will help with alleviating poverty.
Because of all this, the church is entering a season where there will be manifestations of signs, wonders and miracles. Revivals will break out in various areas. God is stirring an earnestness and seriousness in the hearts of the people, where they don’t just want to sit and receive messages, but actively want to make a difference in the world. People will go out filled with the Holy Spirit and power to make a real difference to communities.
Many more politicians will come to the church to receive wise counsel so that they can do God’s will. Credible prophetic voices will rise in our nation. There will be a move away from sangomas and spiritualists as God will increasingly release the power dimension in the church in 2019.
Crash and Burn
The words ‘crash and burn’ were heard. Individuals in ministry will crash and burn. Do not be alarmed but be ready to give them a word in season. They are not burnt out, but the doctrines that have sustained them are burnt out. They need time, if willing, to discover the life that the Lord has for them. A rectification is coming in which the church in South Africa plays a pioneering role as to the direction that ministry will take.
Buildings and facilities that have been built up over years will not be wasted and fall into disarray. A new vision is already waiting in the wings.
Many people will become involved in a multitude of ministries of which many have not been envisaged before. Well-established ministries will not be threatened by the rising tide of ministering saints taking up their roles. Training programs will be rolled out to equip people in these diverse ministries. These ministries/saints will not be centrally funded but will mainly raise their own funds to implement life-changing projects. They will take hands with local, provincial and national government and be highly effective in their area of ministration.
A vision of a big eagle on a mountain top grabbing a half empty glass, flying with it and placing it on a higher level was seen. There is a call for the prophetic ministry to go higher. Some people have neglected their gifts and they left it behind, thinking that they don’t have any more to give. God is calling you to move up a little bit higher. There is a mist coming like a waterfall from heaven and filling the glass up, restoring and refreshing His people.
Muslims There will be an increase in internal strife and factions and more attacks. Muslim-on-Muslim attacks will take place especially in KwaZulu-Natal. Christian ministries will step in to help in these situations. This will bring great favour, leading to many turning to the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation.
Political Impact A renewed political focus to recognise the church will take place. The Church itself will play a dominant role, which is not just in terms of being a voter base. There are underlying strengths that are hidden in the people in the church that will be revealed. Many talents and gifts that were hidden will become very prevalent this season.
Prayers that Ignite God is taking the Body of Christ in South Africa into a season where their prayers will ignite inspiration. God will speak. This will cause many to start up new initiatives, knowing that they have something to do; they have a plan from God and they heard God.
There will be a revival in the church; large crowds were seen coming into church buildings. Football stadiums will be filled with large gatherings of people praying for our nation and many coming to the Lord. The church must focus on the basics again and not on show-stopper performances.
A vision was seen of minarets falling from mosques. The influence of Islam is waning, and the Lord is working in the hearts of imams with radical changes taking place. The Lord is doing something within the Islamic faith. The South African church will be displayed to the world; people are always looking at South Africa and taking note of what the Lord is doing within this nation.
God is stirring up a real hunger in the people of South Africa and especially within the younger generation. God is dealing with fear, unforgiveness and hatred in the hearts of many. God will move them to pray instead of retaliating and responding aggressively. In prayer, their hearts will start to change.
A vision was seen of the miracle that Moses did with the water from the rock. The Lord is saying in this season there will be supernatural provision that will not come from man or any fundraising but will be supernatural from God. The church itself will flourish, even in the difficult economic environment where giving is under pressure.
A second vision was seen of a fresh flan and custard pudding that was made and being put on the table.
The Lord says in Psalm 37:4: “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” In this season the goodness of the Lord will be tasted amongst His people that are in difficult circumstances. Christians in the nation will significantly grow and prosper and will become a dominant force. This force will be felt in politics, much like in America where they must contend with the evangelical group.
The Tent of David
A vision was seen of a person like David playing a harp to the Lord. Worship in this season in the church will change. It will be drastically different – a move away from performance and entertainment to where the presence of the Lord will be manifest.
This coming season, there will be a strong sense of the Lord’s presence amongst His people, which will be reflected in sincere worship. It will change the way people perceive church from having an ‘entertainment’ encounter to having an encounter with the presence of the Lord. It will become a strong testimony in 2019 that the church will testify of the manifested presence of the Lord.
“After this I will return and rebuild David’s fallen tent. Its ruins I will rebuild, and I will restore it” (Acts 15:16 NIV).
The Wise and Foolish Virgins (Matt. 25)
The Church is in the time of the five wise and five foolish virgins. There is a definite separation. The five wise virgins will be raised up; they are prepared within and they have a new understanding of Kingdom authority. They will be released into the market place and no longer will the sharing of the message and gospel be an intimidating thing. There is a quality of men and women that understand their authority and understand who they are as men and women of God. Therefore, there will be a tremendous impact of miracles, signs and wonders taking place within the market place.
Visions The hopelessness and powerlessness that the people and Christians have felt will dissipate. Christian communities will experience an excitement because of the vision and calling of God on them. Different groups and individuals of the Body across denominations, cultural backgrounds and race will discover that God has been speaking the same vision to each one. This will cause divisions to fall. White people will go into rural areas and townships and township people will go to urban areas. A coming together and working together for common goals and common purposes will occur. A corporate voice of unity in prayer is rising from South Africa. The Lord is hearing that voice and He will respond accordingly. The enemy has started to line up his troops to stop what is happening. But it will not be stopped. The move of God will make his children trample the enemy underfoot. A great testimony of what God has done in this land will be heard.
There is a revival breaking out amongst the youth. There is a stirring in youth; they want the real thing. They are dissatisfied and no longer will they turn to drugs. The power gifts of the Holy Spirit are being poured out.
High schools in rural areas and the more impoverished schools will see young people with passion boldly proclaiming Christ and reaching out to the other pupils. Those that were drawn to gangsterism and drugs in the past will now be pulled into groups of teenagers ministering to one another on the school ground. God will manifest Himself in supernatural ways. God is raising their level of faith to a place where they will dare to step out and trust God for His supernatural power. Even hardened criminals and hardened gangster’s hearts will be softened, weeping in brokenness.
Leaders need to start preparing the youth and not only focus on the older generation but focus on the youth to build the church in the nation for the future. The younger people in the congregations will be seen in front of the church, and older people going forward to the younger people to be prayed for and being touched and healed from illnesses, sickness and incurable diseases.
