Will The World Recover From This?

The Secret Power Of Lawlessness At Work Behind The Scenes

“People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken” (Luke 21:26).

IMPORTANT NOTICE! Brethren, we are reposting this message for this week. The Lord revealed to me (Brother Glenn) twice (to confirm that this is bound to happen) on 1 December 2020 and 4 December 2020 that the world will not recover from the economic effects caused by COVID-19.  Furthermore, the world leaders will soon be introducing a new way of trading without cash and people will be encouraged to move away from 'backward thinking' but to embrace the changing times. We thus encourage you all dear brethren to endure in prayer and be steadfast in your faith and convictions, our KING IS COMING SOON! 

Now, we are sharing a vision in this article below which relates to this message. Kindly read on! Let’s get right into it; we do know that there are many messages online relating to the times we live in with countless videos and articles on some revelations some people claim to have received from the Lord. It is true some are genuine and as we know the old devil and his troops also want to be part of the conversation and he, being the worker of confusion and deceit,(Revelation 12:9) will stop at nothing to make his own false contribution. He will downplay the times through various sources claiming that all is well and we will recover from this. WATCH OUT! These are no ordinary times; these are prophetic times when the Word of God is being fulfilled! As God-fearing servants, we need to educate the unbelievers about the times sharing the gospel and letting everyone know that the creator is about to show His Kingdom.

These Are End-Times

As a ministry which was founded by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself which is our testimony, we are not in the business of speculation or in the business of smothering money from people. We do God’s business and that is to dispense God’s truth without any charge! Therefore take this from us, all major countries have been affected and most countries know that they will not be able to solve this pandemic crisis on their own given their limited resources. Therefore, the international community relies on the various United Nations’ bodies for guidance, help, and support. We know that the World economy is battered as it is, it will lead over a few months time to a revamp of the world economy that will introduce over time a single currency for the whole world which will ultimately lead to the mark of the beast.

Will individual countries be in a position to resist? Well naturally yes they will attempt to, but they are all slaves to foreign debt, and the help the stronger economies will offer to ‘help’ solve domestic issues will not easily be resisted than to face economic isolation like we’ve seen how some poorer countries have been treated.

As you are aware, we have been sharing with you in the past and recently that WE ARE IN THE VERY LAST DAYS! Being faithful as He is, every WORD OF GOD meant for these times will be fulfilled. In our visions section, we prophesied about the coming Israeli peace deal, the collapse of the US economy and a united world order, and widespread famine. These visions will not lie but prove faithful to many others that the Lord gave us which were fulfilled.

Will We Forget The Aftermath Of Covid-19?

While everybody is curious to know what will be the aftermath of Covid-19, we should be careful not to be misled. As we know, times like these require some discernment (Matthew 24:24), and Christians who know their God and Saviour will not be shaken (Psalm 62:1), we must remain steadfast in the faith. After this, the world will never be the same because new things will be introduced...Please read further below! There will still be some time before the world leaders will implement measures.

While the Lord did not reveal to us what will happen after covid-19, He did give us something to pray about when He showed Claudia on the 28 April 2020 His Book [or scroll] of things to come (Revelation 5:1-9). In the vision, Claudia was shown a thick book and it was open somewhere and the words she was meant to read were boldly highlighted “WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER COVID-19”? After that, the book was closed and we have since been in prayer to know what the Lord will reveal. We, therefore, appeal to you all our fellow brethren to join us in prayer to find out what the mind of the Lord is regarding this. Now while we wait for the prophetic answer from the Lord regarding the covid-19 aftermath, we can safely say that the world has changed forever and going forward, the spirit of greed is fully operational in the hearts of those who want to control the resources this world.

Heavenly Treasures

Finally, Christians should not fall into the trap of pursuing worldly riches (Matthew 6:19-20) and exploit the poor to make large sums of money. Instead invest in souls by faith, give to the needy and you will never go hungry when times of need strikes. We are not suggesting that people should not save up to buy something, the Bible encourages us to be content with what we have (1 Timothy 6:6-12) while the world system encourages us to hoard riches, exploiting the poor, and have a desire for more. There is a BIG SURPRISE coming for those who are greedy for money (James 5:3) they will lose everything without warning! This should not induce fear in us dear brethren our eternal and only treasure should be Christ our Lord and this is pleasing to God. As a family and ministry, we have lost quite a lot of money to greedy people but the Lord taught us not to put our hearts on it and make it our security, this can lead us away from the Lord, instead, the Lord will provide for our daily bread as He did for the Israelite's in the desert (Matthew 6:11; Nehemiah 9:20-21). Let us therefore not allow the present and coming world system to rob us of the gift of salvation and eternal life, but serve the Lord faithfully daily while sharing and caring those will be our eternal treasures.

Again, we extend an invitation to those who are not saved yet to make right with God and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Grace

Drawing Closer to God Through Suffering

Knowing The Lord Better

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded (James 4:8 NKJV).

Vision by Claudia (23/04/2020)

I had a vision this morning, I was outside our house standing in the yard, and suddenly an Angel of God in a form of a human covered in a brilliant light appeared to me and said "Now the Lord will show His Kingdom". After saying this I just saw the light figure disappearing into the sky! end of vision.

In this week’s article, we will be sharing some personal experiences and some Biblical examples of people who actually experienced God in their lives. The purpose of sharing this article is to encourage the brotherhood to seek a personal, deeper and closer walk with the Lord. It is common knowledge that almost every Christian desires a closer walk with God, but the challenges of fleshly desires and personal interest cause hindrances to our faith (Mark 4:19). Nevertheless, as impeding as these obstructions are, they can also bring out the strength of our faith and our love for God (Nehemiah 4:1-6). Let me emphasize I'm not implying that God uses sufferings to bring us closer to Him; instead, our suffering cause us to seek God (Judges 10:15-16).

Weak Faith and Complaints Destroy Godly Confidence

As is common amongst new Christians, earlier in my Christian walk with God I experienced the joy of knowing the Lord and my love for God was evident through my witnessing, Bible reading, constant praying and church attendance. During the first few months of my conversion, I lost my desire for many worldly things as I lived the joy of knowing Christ (Matthew 13:44). Although many people avoided me and I was often by myself, I never felt all alone and rejected. With God in me, I enjoyed adequate companionship and fellowship.

Being new to persecutions, when I experienced my first real test I wanted to give up my job in order to avoid those who mocked and persecuted me. I also wanted to move away from the residence that I had rented in order to avoid the people I lived with. Meanwhile, these tests brought me closer to the Lord in prayer as I relied on Him to give me strength to endure and deliver me from the opposition I faced. I complained to a God-fearing Christian friend who encouraged me to continue praying and trusting the Lord. About a two week's later I received an answer to my prayers. The Lord gave a Word of knowledge and a Word of wisdom through a pastor that I visited that Sunday. Through this pastor, the Lord rebuked me for my complaining. She further encouraged me to endure trials, saying that the Lord was preparing me for ministry work. You could imagine how welcoming and comforting this message was! I received spiritual strength, faith and courage to face my sufferings.

In my weakness, I took up my cross and continued with my work of witnessing amongst my colleagues and in the busy streets of Hillbrow, Johannesburg. My love for those who made me suffer was renewed as I regained my Godly confidence. Looking back today to the difficult challenges I faced and overcame, it seemed a task impossible, but surely with faith and a love for God the journey was transformed into a memorable experience of trust and reliance on the Lord (Psalm 46:1). This demonstrates that no distress, persecutions, sufferings or any hindrances are powerful enough to destroy our faith and salvation in the Lord (Romans 8:35-39). Such fearless determination is a testimony of a living faith in Christ Jesus.

Growing Closer to God Through Suffering

By saying that we can grow closer to God through suffering, I am not implying that we should purposely inflict suffering on ourselves or allow suffering to oppress us as a means of bringing us closer to the Lord. Nobody likes suffering; it is oppressive and chokes faith, and historically people have always strived to offload sufferings (Exodus 5:15-21). With unfortunate circumstances being ever present and the unpredictable nature of life, we will need faith and God to strengthen and empower us out of sufferings. This is the comfort the Lord promised to give us during trying times (John 14:16). This particular Scripture foresaw the existence of soul-vexing sufferings and mercifully God intervened and provided relief and comfort.

Quite often we may not have control or mastery over trying circumstances, and with our souls crying out against the unjust treatment meted out to us, we might be left with a longing to be heard and granted relief (Genesis 40:15; Job 30:24-31). When young Joseph faced the ire and hatred of his brothers as a youth, and later on resisted the lustfulness of Potiphar's wife, he suffered unjust consequences (Genesis 37:4-27; 39:7-20). However, because his suffering was caused by forces aimed at destroying him and his relationship with God, the Lord gave Him mercy, deliverance, and authority (Genesis 39:21-23; 41:41-44).

Similarly, when David was still a youth, God promised to make him king over Israel. In a bid to destroy the Lord’s promise, Satan inflicted a harsh suffering on David to discourage him and hinder his faith in God so that the promise of the LORD might be rendered useless (1 Samuel 16:1-13). King Saul’s burning jealousy and hatred for David under a demonic influence resulted in David becoming a restless wanderer (1 Samuel 18;19). Notwithstanding the odds against his life, King David summoned strength in God Almighty and his faith overcame and he consequently inherited God’s promise (2 Samuel 5:1-5).

Additionally, Daniel was on the receiving end of his colleagues’ jealousies and he experienced much suffering for his faith in God. However, he endured the persecutions and the Lord God rescued and vindicated him, resulting in great honor to God (Daniel 6:3-28). Furthermore, Paul the apostle was possessed with love for the Lord, and he, therefore, rejoiced in the sufferings as he scorned the pain brought by his trying circumstances (Romans 5:3-5). What all the saints mentioned above have in common is that they truly experienced God personally and NOTHING could separate, take away and STOP the love they had for the Lord God and Jesus Christ (Hebrews 5:8; Romans 8:36-39; 1 Peter 2:21).

Finally, dear brethren, believers who heartily and faithfully seek God without masquerading to please others, or showing off how super-spiritual they are when in the company of others, will experience a connecting power of God’s abiding Presence in their lives (Genesis 5:24). This is the same staying power the men of God mentioned above enjoyed, which leaves us in astonishment today on exactly how they were able to endure and make it to Heaven. What was their secret? A consuming love for God and, consequently, God’s grace carried and lifted them through sufferings (Hebrews 11:32-40). While the richness of the victorious and joyful Christian testimony is monumental, the gain after endurance is even surpassingly rewarding (1 Corinthians 2:9; Revelations 2:11, 26; 3:19-22). In the light of this, the promises of God for everlasting life are too precious to ignore, and they by far outweigh the present sufferings; let us therefore endure and be found worthy to inherit eternal life!

Have you been crying and complaining when faced with sufferings? Take courage and embrace the Christian passion, which is suffering for standing firm on your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Obey, be strong and of good courage, love all and fear none, for Christ is in and all around you. To receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

Blessed Grace in Jesus’ Love,
