As English professional trumpeter Dan Newell played Amazing Grace at It’s Time Pretoria, a woman sitting right at the back of the huge crowd had an open vision of angels evicting evil “rulers and principalities” which had been in South Africa since the British colonial era
It was like watching a movie, while simultaneously receiving a revelation from God about a major spiritual breakthrough for the country, said Pretoria prophetic counsellor and founder of SA Unite In Christ, Brigette Marx in a telephone interview.
It also explained the mystery of why Newell had come out at his own expense, just to play Amazing Grace briefly on his trumpet, before flying back to England on the same day that he arrived. What happened in the Spirit while he played was the most significant outcome of the meeting and brought high hopes for the future of our country, she said.
In a post on her Facebook page, which has also been shared extensively via WhatsApp, she explains that because the evil rulers and principalities she saw in her vision had been brought into and established in SA by British colonisers, it required a descendant of the colonisers, like Newell, to stand in the authority of his forefathers and put an end to their influence, which was the “root cause of all the racism and conflict over land expropriation, etc. that we currently see in our country”.
Angels without swords
Describing her vision, she says: “The angels appeared without their swords and did not have to fight, as these rulers and principalities surrendered and moved out of South Africa without resisting, knowing that they had been divested of their power.”
She continues: “Angels then positioned themselves to take up authority in the Spirit, signifying that South Africa was now under another government, another rulership in the Spirit. All the evils of rebellion, corruption, etc. that emanated from colonialism and manifested in the previous government had to be uprooted.
She explains in her post that because the English trumpeter was the correct person for the spiritual assignment, the root of colonialism was broken as he released the sound of Amazing Grace over the land and replaced it “with what he brought to South Africa – grace – AMAZING GRACE!”.
Discussing the It’s Time Pretoria spiritual breakthrough with Gateway News she said while Newell’s trumpeting marked the moment of spiritual breakthrough she believed the victory was a result of an accumulation of spiritual power as a result of more than a million people praying together at the event and in groups around the country on October 27, as well as what had happened at Bloemfontein and Cape Town and at other past reconciliation initiatives.

Informed by Gateway News yesterday that the English trumpeter, Newell’s wife, Kim, is South African, Marx said: “I do not believe that anything is ‘by chance’.
“A marriage represents a covenant. This could mean then that a new covenant should be made among the people of the nation and the nation to God. A covenant of love and protection, that is what a marriage is.
“Prophetically it can also mean that the old covenant SA made in 1902 with the Brittish should be dissolved and be replaced with this new covenant among the people of SA.
“I have also heard yesterday that a big battle between the English and the Boers took place on the ground where It’s Time happened. That tells me that the physical ground was significant to what happened, tying everything together.
“In order for Satan to have been able to position his forces over SA, which came with colonialism, there had to be a blood sacrifice and I do believe then that this particular battle might just have been the final blow Satan needed to have positioned his forces.”
Marx said the replacement of the rulers and principalities of darkness with the rule of Christ that was achieved in the spiritual realm on October 27 improved prospects for South Africa to realise its destiny and calling to influence the world.
Restoring godly governance
Christians who accepted her revelation as being from God would also have to decide whether to be part of the miracle by exercising their authority in Christ in their spheres of influence and helping to restore godly order in the nation.
“Spiritually the government had to change in order for it to change in the physical. And I believe we are going to see it everywhere. In the media, in education, in government, we are going to see these pioneers — I believe they are already there; we are going to see them really stepping up to the forefront. They were trained and prepared for many years. They were just hidden,” she said.
She said she had received lots of reaction — mostly positive — to her vision and revelation. She had received feedback from people as far afield as the United States and England and had received messages from some people who confirmed seeing angels at It’s Time.
Many expressed hope and gratitude that God is moving and said they were expectant for something really good coming to South Africa.
