REPOSSESSING AFRICA – The Days of Separation
…blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” Genesis 22:17-18
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Rev 13:1
*all scriptures are from the NKJV, unless otherwise indicated
By the mercy of God I was made aware of a major shift concerning Africa that God showed me in 2014. I speak of the return of that which was stolen out of Africa, as it relates to her human resources and her natural resources. It is becoming very clear to me that the Lord is fully engaged in the bringing to pass of His words. The recent hash tag “gobacktoafrica” that is trending across the internet, the current new alliances that African leaders are now suddenly forming with the black Caribbean nations, whose ancestors were from Africa, the various inflows of blacks from around the globe back to Africa and also the African Union tagging 2019 as the year of the return, are all sure indications that – of a truth – all that was stolen from Africa will return. But permit me to say that this return is both a blessing from the Lord and also a deliberate distraction for those whose hearts have no connection to eternity. I will explain as much as I am given to do so in this article, but dear readers, do not just take my word for it. Do take everything shared here back to the Lord for clarity and also to know your own place in all of that which must come to pass in this age and time.
The Mix is Complete
A few weeks ago, the following words came to me as I rose from my bed to go for my early morning walk with the Lord. It certainly became my meditation for that morning and the entire day. I heard Him say to me “The mix is complete. There is a delineation going on. The Lord is passing through the midst to separate between the right and the left. The right are few, who are the sons of righteousness by faith. On the left are the multitudes who are the sons of wickedness. Ungodliness is in their flesh. They are lovers of this world, who have no retaining of the knowledge of God in their hearts”. As soon as these words came to me, the very picture that accompanied them was the event that happened between God and Abram in Genesis 15. God had come to have a conversation with Abram, and with that conversation, a covenant of blessing was birthed between God and Abram and by extension, Abram’s descendants. But concerning the delineation, it is written thus “And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.” Gen 15:17, is a prophetic indication of the separation which has been before and which is now at its peak among the sons of men. The covenant of blessing, in order to be a blessing, was cut between God and Abram, however, it came with an attachment of slavery for his descendants which is one of the subjects of this article as it relates back to Africa as a “descendant” of Abraham. Sincerely, up until when the Lord indicated this reality to me, I had never considered Africa as connected to Abraham by the reason of the African (Egyptian) women who had children for him, even though from the various teachings I have listened to, it was clear that Africa is connected to Abraham through the sons of Joseph; Ephraim and Manasseh who were born in Egypt by Joseph (who was technically an Egyptian by naturalization) and Asenath an Egyptian woman, but I had never seen it from the space of the Genesis 15 covenant between God and Abraham. It makes a whole lot of sense to know that history is a good recorder, for it is not a coincidence that the Jews spent 400 or 430 years in slavery and also the African trans-Atlantic slave trade spanned a period of 400 years. It is not a coincidence at all, for it bears witness that the words of the Lord to Abraham concerning his descendants going into slavery for 400 years also applied to Africa. Is it now a coincidence that the nations of the earth where African slaves were sent to build are all now throwing God and His ways out of their nations? An indication of the coming judgment on such godless nations. For the Lord said “And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.” Gen 15:14
See this “Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.” Genesis 15:13-14. The coming to pass of these words of the Lord to Abram happened after Israel had spent 430 years in Egypt and true to God’s word, they came out with great possessions (of worldly goods) from Egypt. See Exodus 12:35-36.
I have tried to understand what He meant by the mix is complete. However, it is an obvious thing that the entire world is now so mixed and messed up beyond recognition. The church is now in the world, the world is in the church. “Faith” has now mixed with assumptions, “Truth” is having friendship with lies, liberty of spirit has become the yardstick for uncleanness and the list of mixes goes on and on.
Prophetic Indications of the African wealth outbreak
The covenant of God with Abram is both a prophecy to the Jews and a prophecy to Africans. The descendants of Abraham are both Jews (directly from Isaac, through Jacob) and those born to him by Egyptian (African) women who are also blessed by extension of the covenant. And because the words of God to a man concerning his descendants always cut across every aspect of such a man’s life, Africa became part of this promise by the reason of the Egyptian (African) women who had children for Abraham. In line with these thoughts, it is safe to say that the Jews have gone through their 400 years of slavery and they came out with possessions. Africa as a continent has gone through her own 400 years of slavery; she will now get her own possessions. My thought is this, is it a coincidence that Ghana recently celebrated 2019 as the year of the return which marks 400 years since the first slaves from Africa landed in America? See what is said about the year of the return “The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia. The arrival of enslaved Africans marked a sordid and sad period, when our kith and kin were forcefully taken away from Africa into years of deprivation, humiliation and torture. While August 2019 marks 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in the United States, “The Year of Return, Ghana 2019” celebrates the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade who were scattered and displaced through the world in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.”
Remember, for me, these are prophetic indications of the season and may not necessarily be date oriented.
Those on the seashore
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. Rev 13:1. This scripture speaks of John standing at the seashore watching the events happening in the sea. Remember, the sea is called nations, tribes and tongues of the earth. See Revelation 17:15
I had often pondered to myself that, if the waters of the sea is people, nations, tongues and tribes of the earth, then what is the seashore or the sand of the seashore on which John was standing and what does John represent in prophecy in that space and time? My answer came from what the Lord pointed out to me when I asked him about it. The Lord took me back to the covenant of Abraham both in Genesis 15:5 and Genesis 22:17. But for the purpose of the question I asked the Lord we will look at the Genesis 22:17 version of the covenant. The Lord indicated to me that, if the waters or the sea is the nations, tribes and tongues of the earth on which the woman called Babylon is seated, then the sand of the sea are those who, by covenant, are called out of Babylon with Abraham. For the Lord said to Abraham your descendants will be “as the sand which is on the seashore”. But because many are called out and few are chosen and fewer will be faithful to the covenant of faith, John standing on the sand of the seashore (those called out with Abraham) is indicative of those few who will rise above just being called out from the world like Abraham, but who are now faithful to the covenant of faith like Isaac and Jacob who dwelt in the same tent with Abraham, in the wilderness of their faithfulness to God. To make this clearer, the sea is the nations, tribes and tongues of the earth which Babylon the mother of fornication controls, the seashore is indicative of those who have been separated from that sea like Abraham and then John is indicative of those who are not just separated (chosen) from the world but who are faithful to the covenant of faith in and with God irrespective of what it costs them daily. Certainly, because of the massive wealth coming back to Africa, the temptation to delve into the sea of business, investments etc will be there. But for those who have been called to stand on the seashore, do not take your eyes off the mark of the high calling in Christ. Set your eyes on the eternal possession and not on the physical. For the repossession that is coming to Africa is both Spiritual and physical. Do all to possess that which is spiritual and eternal.
Of a truth the Lord has determined to bring the blessing of repossession of lost things back to Africa, things stolen from the many years of slavery and the exploitation of colonization. It is a good thing, but it is also a trap, especially for those whose hearts are only tuned to this world and not eternity. It is not a coincidence that Africa has suddenly become the most popular word on the internet and neither is the massive movement of people of African descent in the Diaspora coming back home, the various foreign investments going on in Africa and the recent African Continental Free Trade Area signed by African nations. All of these are indications of the blessing of repossession that God promised Abraham and his descendants. However, this is also when the Lord has determined to walk through the midst of the people to make a delineation between those who are of faith with Abraham and those who are not. For those of faith will not set their eyes on the physical possession and the massive return of wealth coming to Africa but on that which is eternal and which can only be attained by faith. The return is certainly of God but it is also a test for those who are called to walk in faith. What will your eyes be set upon? For the return itself is the test for separation.
The true Africans and the days ahead
Africa is not just a location on the world map, neither is Africa a concept in the mind of some who think whatever comes out of this continent must be inferior. Not at all. Africa is the beginning of the human race, the mother of humanity. She is a covenant of blessing from the Lord to the nations of the earth. And that the nations of the world misused her destiny and milked her stupid due to her own promiscuity, does not change the fact that she will still become that glorious womb of blessing that the Lord destined her to be. For out of Africa shall come forth the sound of the glorious day of the Lord. The true Africans are not those who call themselves Africans or who were born in Africa. A true African is that one who knows and understands the true destiny of Africa and who by faith decides to walk out the reality of that destiny. The coming days will see a real time separation of the true Africans from the false.
A word to those who must overcome
He who overcomes shall inherit all things in God. And to those who by the reason of their walk of faith with the Lord have become weary on the journey, I pray the Lord Himself will renew your strength and give you deeper knowledge of Him even as your hope is anchored on Him alone.
God bless you.
From your brother.
