The Valley of the Fire of Purification
I will bring the one-third through the fire,
Will refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’;
And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” Zechariah 13:9
“Everyone will be purified by fire as a sacrifice is purified by salt. Mark 9:49 (GNT)
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been [grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls. 1Peter 1:6-9

For those who read my last article about the Birmingham Common Wealth Opening Ceremony as a Satanic global announcement of the last earthly kingdom of iron and clay, as captured in Daniel chapter 2, I believe you know and also understand that we are in a very critical moment in the history of this world, especially as it concerns the culmination of all things into the plan and purpose of God on earth. Over the ages, kingdoms have risen and kingdoms have fallen and there are still some of the old kingdoms whose branches are extended to our day. It is these branches of those old kingdoms that will be completely removed in the days we are in, in preparation for the coming kingdom of Christ which will take over everything called kingdoms, rulership, or authority on the earth. However, while the coming events of the taking over of all kingdoms by the kingdom of Christ should be the main focus right now for the believer, there are also other things that must also be placed in perspective, in order to be fully prepared for the days of the takeover. I will share some insights in the paragraphs below.
A few nights before the writing of this article, I made my way to bed to have some much-needed rest after a long day. The moment my back touched my bed, it was like I was sucked up into an experience, or something you would call an inner vision. At first in my mind, I thought I was just thinking of something but later realized after the experience that it was not my thoughts that I was experiencing, but something way different and key for the season. In the experience, I suddenly could see myself standing on a high ground overlooking a valley of fire. As I looked at that burning fire all over the valley, I could also sense that that valley of fire was for me to pass through and also could tell that the end of the valley was a straight walkway leading up another mountain or so. In my heart, right within the experience, I knew that I was given only two options by whoever was the force behind the fire, that is, either to enter the fire willingly or be forced into it. In my heart, I chose to walk into the fire willingly not caring what was going to happen to me. I must say that there was no feeling of the heat of the fire or any engagement of my five senses even as I entered into the flame. My five senses seemed to be suspended somehow. Right within this fire or experience, I could tell I was being led by a “woman” who appeared in my heart as the spirit of Wisdom. Check Proverbs 8 and 9. I walked through the fire and came out on the other side of the valley into the waiting hands of One whom I believe is the Lord. It felt like a reunion of brothers, we embraced and I continued on the walkway up the mountain. I snapped out of that experience and that’s when I realized I was not the one imagining it.
One of the first thoughts that came to my heart about the fire was that it is the fire of purification of God which all men must go through either willingly or by force. Also, it came to mind that that valley is the valley of decision that all men must face even as we approach the end of this age. I prayed about the experience and consciously committed to God that I am willing to walk into that fire and be purified and also prepared for whatever it is He, God, wants from me.
The walk and interpretation
A few mornings after that experience, I was woken up to go for my usual early morning walk. Except that this time, it wasn’t so early. Somewhere around 7 am or so. And the instruction was not to jog or even walk fast but to walk slowly. So, I got ready and got on the road. It was very cold outside but I walked on. As I walked, a conversation started in my heart with the Lord and He brought back the valley of fire experience and explained a few things. It was a bit of an explanation of what the revelation means, but one thing stood out for me. The fire is the fire of God the Father and it’s both for purification and destruction. For those who will walk into the fire willingly as they are prompted and led by the Spirit of God, it is a time of purification in preparation for the kingdom of Christ that is coming, but for those who will be forced into it, it will be a painful experience for them to get cleansed and purified. For the fire will be for the destruction of their flesh and sinful desires. But it remains that, just as the Lord said in Mark 9:49 that EVERYONE will be purified by fire, no one will escape this fire that is coming. And even though our fire experiences may be different as God deems fit and in line with how He has been journeying with us in our walk, no one will escape this fire that is coming.
Will you allow the fire?
During the course of writing this article and just a few days after the initial fire experience, my family and I made a move from where we were to someplace else. We do move quite often as a pattern. So, we got to this new place in an area that is a bit far from the loud and noisy sides of town. Right opposite the apartment we moved to, about two hundred meters away, is a church. It’s one of the branches of the Nairobi Chapel. Instead of a building made of stones, it was a huge tent that looked like a tabernacle. That really got my attention from the moment I saw it. As we continued to move things from the car into the new apartment, I took a break to just look out of the balcony to see the area. I noticed that this huge “tabernacle” was being washed by some guys. They were right on top of this tent scrubbing serious dirt from the canvas of the tent. Right within my heart, I heard “it’s the season of the cleaning of the tabernacle”. I instantly understood what I had heard because I had already been prompted about the coming fire of purification. I could not shake off the thought of how practical and near God is to us. In my mind I was thinking, how on earth was that same day chosen for the washing of that tent, which happened to be the very same day we got to the area? I went back downstairs to bring things from the car into the house. Something happened right in the car that I still can not understand. I entered the car from the front passenger seat to pick up some of the things that were on the back seat. I cannot tell you why or how, but I slipped and fell on both knees hitting the floor of the car very hard. Oh my, it was very painful. In that pain, I took the things I had removed from the car to the house. Then I went back again to pick some more stuff and the very same thing happened again. I tripped and fell again with both knees hitting the floor of the car hard. Immediately that happened, I heard “they shall be made to fall in order to purify them.” The words of the angel to Daniel came to mind immediately. It says “And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time. Daniel 11:35. Remember, these words to Daniel were a vision for the end of the ages, and now we are at the end of the ages. We are at the appointed time that Daniel was told of. So, it is critical to understand that everything Daniel was shown and which he was told was for the end of the ages, will manifest in this age. For we are at the end of the ages.
Even though both falls in the car were very painful, I was glad that they were not just falls, but prophetic events that indicated to me the season we are in and exactly why our moving house was necessary.
Now, that the fall happened twice is indicative of what has already been settled. For by the mouth of two witnesses or events, every word shall be established. Meaning that the fire of purification will definitely come and the fall to make men pure will also come. But what does it really mean to be purified and what does it mean to be made to fall? Here is my thought, and I believe scripture also backs it up.
I do not think this fire of purification and cleansing will be experienced as one walks into a fire either spiritually or physically as it happened to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And it’s also possible some people will have spiritual experiences where they will “literally” be in a fire and will feel the burning. But here is what the Lord said in John 15:3 “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.”
This statement He made to His disciples is a direct indication that what cleanses us is the word of God spoken to us. It makes sense to say right here that, in as much as it is possible to have spiritual experiences as part of this process of purification, we must, however, keenly watch out for the words that the Lord will speak to us directly. His word is the water or fire of cleansing by which we are purified. For even Paul also mentioned in Ephesians 5 how husbands are expected to wash their wives with the water of the word just as Christ did with the church.
Concerning the issue of being made to fall just like it was told to Daniel, I think the example of what happened to Job is one great illustration of how God does it. I am not saying this is all God does, but one of such examples. Now, the beginning of the story of Job started with a picture of a man whom God Himself called “a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”, a man who will make sacrifices for his children each time they have their parties and merriments in case they “sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Such was the lifestyle of the man called Job, but did you know that in all of these pious activities that Job was engaged in, he really did not know God? What did God do? He made Job fall. How? He used the hands of Satan to do it in order to bring Job to the point where he confessed and said “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.” Job 42:5-6. But what does it all mean when Job made that statement of confession? It means that God definitely knew who Job was, not from his religious activities but from the depth and perspective from which Job did not even know himself. And because God wanted to bring Job to the very aspect of himself that God knew but which Job was unaware of, God had to make Job lose all that was giving him confidence that he knew God. The first thing that God made Job lose was his children and his livestock. I guess the reason is quite straightforward. The children were the main reason he made his sacrifices and his livestock were the tools for making the sacrifices. Meaning that his “spirituality” had nothing to do with knowing God intimately but was just religious activities that professed God. So, when you hear him say, I have heard about you with my ears but now my eyes see you, it means, I thought I knew you but all I knew was just what I was told of you, but now, through the pain of my fall and the wrecking of my worldly goods, I can say I have seen who you are. Is this not what true Christianity is? To go beyond knowing God based on what is written in scripture and spoken of by men to see Him as who He is? For we are changed from glory to glory by the reason of beholding or seeing Him just as He is. This is what the fall is meant to do for everyone who will allow God in the season we are in. They will come to the realization of who God is, not from what anyone had told them before, but from what they now see in God, by themselves.
The call to be faithful
I started to write this article when 2023 was around the corner and I was already beginning to see prophetic words from various people online concerning the new year. One main thing that two of those prophecies that I saw seen talked about, is that 2023 is the beginning of a seven-year period that will lead to some global events in 2030. I will write about this later when I am given the clarity of what God intends for the years ahead.
In the interim, let me say that everything that God does or will do on the earth always requires faithful men. The pattern has always been the same and will not change. And this brings me to the question of, when you are called upon to walk into the fire of your purification or when you finally find yourself in the midst of that valley of fire, what will your response be? Will your answer be like that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who defied the king’s threat of fire, deciding that even if God did not save them, they would not bow to the idol of the king? Will your answer be like that of Job who said that though God slayed him, he would still trust Him? It’s a choice each one must make. And it will be better not to be forced into the fire but to enter willingly.
In this age, God is looking for those who will follow the Lamb because they are called, chosen, and faithful. See Revelation 17:4. The question is, will you?
Prophetic words for the next seven years
I wrote this part of the article on the morning of the first day of 2023. This has never happened before, but this article took a couple months to finish. I guess the Lord was waiting for this very first day of the new year as the things He shared with me about the next seven years gave this article its conclusive direction.
On the morning of the 1st of January 2023, which also happens to be my wedding anniversary, as I was in the bathroom, the words of the Lord started coming to me. I will share them as points and will not necessarily give many details. I want you to go to the Lord yourself for the details. That way, whatever is not accurate in or what may be missing from what I have written, you will get for yourself.
- Protect your family. There will be massive attacks on the family institution, even as the LGBTQ agenda comes to its peak in these seven years. Any marriage that survives these next seven years, will be empowered to survive whatever else comes after 2030. The blindness of spirit will hit this world and the spirit of the beast will come to its surface in the heart of those who are not regenerated in God.
- Invest in gold. World currencies are coming to a massive crash.
- There will be famine of food globally, but most importantly, there will be a massive famine of the word of God on the earth. But for those who have allowed themselves to go through the fire of purification, upon them shall open the portal of the knowledge of the Lord and they shall be filled as water covers the sea.
- Learn and also practice how to live and thrive off-grid. Plant your own food, be mindful of processed food, and be mostly self-sustaining.
- There will be a massive exodus of Africans and people of African descent from around the globe back to Africa the Motherland. In 2014, the Lord had me open Africa’s spiritual West gate “Point of the Return” in Badagry Lagos Nigeria, and in 2017, He also had me and my wife open the spiritual East gate in Mombasa Kenya. The opening of the West gate in 2014 created the 2019 year of the return in Ghana. The opening of both gates is for the return of God’s people (Africans) who were taken as slaves, back to their land and also for the restoration of all that was stolen and taken through the sea.
- Exposed secrets from the Vatican will upset the global balance.
None of the words of this article should be taken as conclusive, take everything to God for further instructions. So, Happy New year to you and your family. May you not lack in the favor and mercy of God this new year 2023 and beyond.
Blessings, from your brother.
