It has begun – The Days Before The Third World

Notes 13
(Read below and/or listen. As voiced by Chioma Phillips)

And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:22

Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” Genesis 18:32

For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels (including principalities and powers; for the third world that is to come has been put under the subjection of the sons of God) … “What is man that You are mindful of him,
Or the son of man that You take care of him?… You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” Hebrews 2:5-8 (Paraphrase mine)

Quite frankly, lots of things are happening in our world and under our very noses; some are good – depending on what good means to each one – and some are definitely evil, also depending on what evil means to each one. But one thing is constant; a terrific change in our world is already happening and for those who must overcome and inherit all things, there is need to pay critical attention to how things are unfolding in our world. This is clearly not the time to lock yourself up in some make-believe “spiritual cocoon” waiting for some magical rapture to come and snatch you away, while the very reason for which God called you and raised you is left in disarray. A definite change of reality from humanity to divinity is coming, but not in the way we may have thought it would be. I will leave this for now.

Marsabit, the Cradle of Mankind

A short while ago, somewhere in October 2020 to be precise, a word from the Lord came to me while I was taking my morning walk. The word said “When you step into Marsabit, then the beginning of the third world has begun.”  In my meditation it became clear that it meant, “when next you step into Marsabit…” because I had been to Marsabit twice before these words came.

Before I continue, let me quickly share a few details about Marsabit, especially for those reading this from outside Kenya or even outside the continent.

Marsabit is the largest county in Kenya and it’s regarded as the Cradle of Mankind because “Lucy” the oldest human fossil was found there. It’s largely a desert place with lots of hills and is home to Marsabit Mountain and Lake Paradise; a beautiful windy place with lots of mist and fine clouds.

Now, the first time I was in Marsabit was in 2017 with my wife based on another word from the Lord. The word was simply for us to go to Marsabit and write on the dry desert dust this message “The Lord is Here”. We drove 530km, that is, about eight hours from Nairobi to Marsabit just to do that and then did a few other things before returning to Nairobi.

To anyone paying attention, the word, “The Lord is Here”, is not some random missionary cliché for building churches, but a pronouncement of the reality of the New Jerusalem. For in Ezekiel 48:35, it is said that the name of the city, that is, the New Jerusalem shall be called “THE LORD IS THERE”. Mind you, I am not saying that Marsabit is the New Jerusalem nor am I saying that the coming New Jerusalem is going to land on the mountains of Marsabit, so don’t take it as such. But if that is the plan of God, then all is well and good. For sometimes, words that come to us are prophetic indications of unfolding realities in God.

For many days, I was thinking about what I was told about Marsabit in 2020 and how it’s connected to the beginning of the third world. I could not easily put it together in my mind, even though I had not forgotten the word about “THE LORD IS HERE”, which had been given in 2017, but I just could not tell how it was connected. Mind you, the reality of a coming third world, shows that we are at the end of the second world, which began with Noah and his family and that’s why the days of the Son of Man (Days of Christ) are like the days of Noah, which is synonymous with the days before the third world and which we are in right now. I hope that makes sense.

So, as I pondered in my mind what I was being told, I asked the Lord how and why it is Marsabit that is “the center “of this grand plan. His answer was very plain and simple. I was made to read Genesis 2:4-7, which I had read several times before but without much “Revelational” context. It says:

This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Underlines mine)

I intentionally underlined the parts in the above scripture so that you can follow how it was explained to me. At first, I didn’t connect it but when I asked the Lord about it, His response was a question and then an understanding. “What is the meaning of Marsabit?” I was asked. I checked online what Marsabit meant. Marsabit is derived from a Rendille word “Marsabicho” which means a mountain surrounded by mist. The Rendille tribe is one of the indigenous communities dwelling in Marsabit County in Northern Kenya. That realization was such a stunning one. The next question that came was “What is Marsabit known for?” That seemed obvious. It’s known as the cradle of humanity. And what picture does “before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth”,paint in the mind? The picture of a desert. It all made perfect sense. Thus, putting it together you have Marsabit, a desert land, as a picture of the reality of the place where mist went up from the ground before anything was created on the earth and from which the first man was formed from the ground. But how is it connected to the beginning of the third world, you may ask? The next set of words that I was given at our former place in Kiserian may answer that.

We lived in Kiserian for exactly five months and when our time was almost done at Kiserian, the hill of help, and the moment we knew that the angel of help (Abiezer) had gone ahead of us to prepare the reality of the mountain, we started preparing our minds on how to leave Kiserian and move to Marsabit, which from all indications was the next place to go. (Please see my last article on Abiezer here)

Our plan was quite simple; leave Kiserian on March 29th, spend a few days in Nairobi with our families, drive to Nyeri on the 1st of April to spend a few days with a senior friend and then enter Marsabit on the 4th of April. The one reason why it made sense to enter Marsabit on the 4th of April was because it’s the 4th day of the 4th month and thus a day of double doors. But Father had a different plan, which we later knew to be perfect.

While we prepared our minds and while we waited for the day we had scheduled to leave Kiserian, the Lord gave me another set of words that I should declare at the gate of Marsabit when we got there.

Now, I have been working on a book called, “Like the Days of Noah and Lot: The Days Before The Third World” and had been feeling pressed within me to announce that the book was on the way. For some reason though, I kept putting off the announcement and I could not tell within me why this was so. Then one day, I knew that would be the day of the book’s announcement on social media and I made the proclamation as directed that morning.

The very same day I made the announcement, which was about four days out to the day we were to leave, at about 4pm, we saw online that the Kenyan government had just made a lockdown announcement for five counties, including the one we lived in. They erroneously called the five counties “The diseased zone” because they claimed the spread of the virus has spiked in those five counties. The lockdown was meant to be till further notice and was to start the very midnight of the announcement and the curfew was shifted from 10pm to 8pm. The announcement was like a punch on our planned move.

Somehow, we knew we had two choices: either to stay and then pay the rent for the next month or just pick up our things and start moving. We made a quick prayer for wisdom and then we decided to move. But because we were not so sure if the change in curfew time to 8pm would start that same day, we knew we had about four hours to pack our things and drive to at least Nairobi and from there see what would happen next. The next two hours was like the children of Israel when they were told to leave Egypt. We moved our things into the car as quickly as we could and because we live by a simple principle which says that whatsoever does not fit in the car is an excess weight and, therefore, must not move with us; we gave the extra things to the caretaker of the apartment. So, in less than two hours, we had done loading the car and were on the road to Nairobi. At this point, we still had not secured any apartment in Marsabit to move into. We had checked several times online but with no results. So, we decided that whenever we finally got to Marsabit, we would spend a few nights at the camping ground, while we drove around Marsabit town in the day to look for an apartment. That was the plan.

I remember while I was thinking of what was going to happen now that we were in Nairobi but still within the lockdown zone, my wife had prayed that the Lord would give us a window of opportunity to get out of the zone. While she was telling me about the prayer she made, she also asked me if I knew that the Jewish Passover was actually starting that same night for the next seven days. That was amazing news for me even though I had never realized that the Jewish Passover was celebrated for seven whole days. So, not only had our plan concerning the time of leaving been taken over, but now I was also made aware that it was the week of Passover, I was very keen to see what the Lord had in mind the whole time.

The very next day, another announcement was made by the government that those who wanted to leave or enter the zoned area had been given a 24-hour window to do so. This clearly was prayer answered so, the very next morning, we said our goodbyes and drove out of Nairobi towards Marsabit.

We made a stop at Nyeri County where we spent three nights, reached the gate of Marsabit County and did the prayer declarations I was given about the release of the beginning of the third world. For the Lord had instructed me to command the four elements of water, fire, wind and earth to come together to birth the third world. Fire to burn the system of this world (2 Peter 3:10) and also to purify the sons of God (Zechariah 13:9), Water to spread the knowledge of God across the earth and for the alignment of Spirit, Wind to move the sons of God to their places and Earth to bring forth life by the Spirit of healing, restoration and rebirth.


We quickly settled down in the apartment we had found while we were camping and then another instruction was given that we should go make a prayer at the Lake Paradise viewpoint, which is at the top of Marsabit Mountain. Lake Paradise is a huge crater lake with lots of lush and green vegetation around it and also a holiday camping site. We went to the mountain on the 4th which happened to be Easter Sunday and the last day of Passover where we prayed about the rising of the sons and daughters of God all over the earth. I remember my wife telling me that as I lifted my hands to heaven to pray, an eagle rose up into the sky from the tree-line beyond where we were standing, in synch with my hands rising into the sky. She saw what happened but I didn’t because my eyes were closed. But that for me was really remarkable.

Two things happened after the prayers, first, later that day, I was reminded that, that very same day was the 4th year, 4th month and 4th day of our marriage. And knowing that the number 444 in Hebrew Gematria means “a holy thing; a holy place, sanctuary; the temple; a city so fruitful and fair as to be often called Paradise” …it gave much joy and hope in that which God is perfecting. Definitely, no one could have put the timing together; for while the Kenyan government erroneously called the five lockdown counties “the diseased zone”, it became a prophetic indication for us of how the Israelites left Egypt, which was considered “the plagued zone”, during the first Passover. Mind you, the reality of us coming out of the supposed “diseased zone” in alignment with the Passover, does not necessarily mean that those who didn’t are outside of God’s will. I do not think so. Secondly, that same day my wife sent me an article from titled: THIS IS WHERE I CREATE MY GARDEN by Helen Calder. The article confirmed strongly what had happened earlier. I will share a part of the article here but leave the link below for you to read the complete article. In the article the author was speaking of a vision she had.

Six days earlier, on Saturday 28th, February, I was having a personal time of prayer and worship when I had an unusual vision. In the vision, I was, simultaneously, both looking down on and standing beside the rim of a volcanic crater in New Zealand. It was a crater lake filled with water, and around it, the environment was lush and green.

Then, the vision changed.

I was walking down the pathway of the volcanic crater at Maungawhau/Mount Eden. This extinct volcano is one of many situated in my hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. It was vivid, like a flashback—although it had been many years since I’d walked down that pathway at Mount Eden…

Footsteps going down a rugged path.

Volcanic rock.



The Lord spoke to me and said, “Eden.” I realized He was not only talking about the crater I was climbing down, but His own garden (Gen. 2:8).

I heard God say, “Eden is not something that you once had but was lost. It is not a “Paradise Lost.” Eden is what I create OUT of loss. I am a Redeemer!”

Can God stop judgment for your sake?

I strongly believe that even though the rulership of the third world is given to the sons of God, the second world, just like the first which ended with Noah, is still also under the dominion of man; meaning that nothing really happens on earth without one input or the other from man’s dominion over creation. And that brings me to another thing. Why could God not stop the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, even when His friend Abraham interceded? Well, the simplest answer I think is because Lot who was the one that sat at the gate of Sodom, and whose life was supposed to be the reason God would change His mind concerning the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, was already caught in the madness of Sodom. For when God said He would spare Sodom for the sake of ten righteous people but found none to make Him do so, the question is what were Lot and his family busy doing in Sodom that God could not find ten righteous people among himself, his family and his friends? Did he not have any single righteous influence in the very city whose gate he sat at daily?

That brings me to another thing. It’s easy to fault Lot and say things about him, but when we bring the same scenario to our day, the question will be, can God – for my sake and your sake – withhold judgment from the earth? Especially now that we have a whole bunch of Christians and so-called believers, whose sole purpose is to wait for rapture, while earth and the people of the earth are going towards the cliff of perdition. And for you reading this article and who is assigned to any gate of influence in your country or community, what are you doing to man that gate? Can God withhold or release judgment on a system, a wrong idea or a people for your sake? Think about it.

All will be well

God is definite about His thoughts and plans both for man and the place called earth. Yes, heaven is the dream of all men that have been called into Christ, but earth still remains God’s project and for which he Himself will call forth a New Earth in which the sons of God will dwell and reign in as was the original plan.

Clearly, we are in the days of much spiritual and physical challenges. The days in which the gifts of the Spirit, which many have built “tabernacles” around, will be “phased out” for the more complete perfection in LOVE and which each one will be required to live by. (See Hebrews 6:1, 1 Corinthians 13:8-10) Concerning this, let the Spirit of perfection guide you into all truth and love.

Now what?

I remember asking the question above and what came as an answer was “Those that must be saved in the days ahead will now begin to know and understand how to walk going forward. Pockets of “ARK” realities will be built all over the earth by those whose lives have understood the coming days for the safety of those who must be saved. The “ARK of Noah” for the saving of some will now be a reality again.”

Shalom! From your brother.
