South Africa, South Africa, land of My Favour! Turn your eyes to Me, and let Me show you Heaven’s Perspective over your past, present, and future. For it is I Who created you, Who called you by name, Who set you apart for My Purposes, to declare and show forth My Glory and carry My Fire to the ends of the earth.
As I discipline those I love, I have disciplined you. As I allow the oppressor room and time to work unknowingly for My Purposes, so I have allowed a great pressing for many years to gather a people unto Myself who call out to Me in their time of trouble, not running hither and thither looking for places of safety, but look to Me as their only Refuge and Fortress, the One in whom their complete trust is. I have become your Solid Rock, your Sure Foundation.
For there is a Holy Remnant that I have been gathering in this nation, and there is a harvest that I am about to release for the reaping of souls who will see My Light and My Salvation. For the darkness upon this land will give way to My Light erupting and igniting this nation with My Glory. For I am shaking the nations, and I am bringing forth a people who walk in holiness and purity, who have turned from their wicked ways, bowing before My Throne.
South Africa, you are a forerunner in the shaking and surrendering of the nations. For you have been disciplined and put through the fire of testing before other nations. I am teaching you how to walk in the Spirit, I am training your hands for war, I am giving you a battle cry and roar that will cause the nations to tremble as My Voice is heard through yours. I am teaching you to walk in victory and strength, joy and peace in the midst of trouble. For I am raising up a Warrior-Nation, a people who know their God, walking with great courage and boldness in the midst of the battle. As David walked in friendship and fierceness, so you will walk before Me.
Do not look to the green pastures of nations afar, for I am shaking all the nations, and there is not one who will escape My Thunder. For I will cause your bulbs to bloom, a well-watered garden set in desert-places, you are. I am unlocking and releasing your springs that have been hidden deep within, and there will be no end to your deep.
For in this time, there is a waiting for the release from Heaven. For as My people humble themselves and seek My Face, and wait on My Salvation, I will come in Wonder, I will come in Glory, I will come in Fire. For this nation has been prepared for a birthing. The pain and the suffering has brought forth a labour that will usher in the New that I am birthing in this hour.
Wait with great anticipation, expectation, and hunger for Me. For as I ignite this nation, I will shoot out arrows of Deliverance over all the nations of the earth. Wait for My Fire. Wait for My Glory. There’s a Great Commissioning coming in this hour of Visitation and Habitation. For those faraway nations that appear green and fertile to the naked eye, will become desert-places, scorched and parched for the Rain of My Glory. You, My anointed Ones, Set-Aflame Arrows of My Right Hand, will be shot out to bring forth My Well-Watered Gardens and Springs of Living Waters across the Face. I will send you to enlighten and ignite the dark places by the Truth of My Word and the Power of My Spirit. As the disciples sought Me in the Upper Room, so you ought to seek Me in this hour for My Holy Visitation.
Look through My Eyes, and behold, I see a nation called and set-apart, prepared and humbled, to carry the Glory of My Presence into all the corners of the earth. You will be a Sign and a Wonder to the nations. Blessed you are, Favoured by the Lord, and Separated unto Him. I will fight against those who contend with you, I will cover and protect you. Trust in Me and seek My Face, for I am your Light and your Salvation.
1In that day you will say:
“O LORD, I will praise You.
Although You were angry with me,
Your anger has turned away,
and You have comforted me.
2Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
For the LORD GOD is my strength and my song,
and He also has become my salvation.”
3With joy you will draw water from the springs of salvation, 4and on that day you will say:
“Give thanks to the LORD;
proclaim His name!
Make His works known among the peoples;
declare that His name is exalted.
5Sing to the LORD, for He has done glorious things.
Let this be known in all the earth.
6Cry out and sing, O citizen of Zion,
for great among you is the Holy One of Israel.”
8Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will come quickly.
Your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry out, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
If you remove the yoke from your midst,
the pointing of the finger and malicious talk,
10and if you give yourself to the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted soul,
then your light will go forth in the darkness,
and your night will be like noonday.
11The LORD will always guide you;
He will satisfy you in a sun-scorched land
and strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
12Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins;
you will restore the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of the Breach,
Restorer of Streets of Dwelling.

Thanks Mom x
The verse about ‘’I will meet your needs in a sun scorched land” was given to my by the Lord in 2001 when I contemplated staying in the UK. I know God wants me in South Africa. Reading it again here is just confirmation that He knows about is and will never forsake is. Thank you for posting!
Great to hear, Yvette. Pleasure!
