The Lord is calling on the Church in South Africa to arise and take a bold step of faith into her prophetic destiny, says Vuyokazi Matu founder of Voice of Africa Global Media in a prophetic word released on Tuesday (May 12).
God is calling SA His “Kingdom economics powerhouse” and says the nation is “delivered from the crippling spirit of poverty, idolatry, disobedience and misalignment with Israel”.
She says God says it is time for SA to “rise up, stand up straight, lead and be healed.” It is time to move from “junk status” to “jump status”.
Turning to Africa, she says it is time for the continent’s longstanding “bad report” of hunger, poverty, hopelessness, political unrest and oppression to end.
At this time the Church in SA is being called to take position and be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit — even adopting “foolishness in God” as a strategic weapon, and resisting pressure to have an answer for everything.
“It is a time to release a sound of Joy and celebration as South Africa shifts to her divine prophetic destiny!!” Matu says in her word.
She says that while God was speaking to her, she also had visions from the era of SA’s struggle against apartheid.
She saw the iconic June 16 1976 photograph of schoolboy Hector Pieterson who was shot and killed during the Soweto uprising.
“I was struck by the fact that I am receiving this picture of Hector Pieterson today, 12 May 2020 and discovering that Sam Nzima, the brilliant South African photojournalist who took this award-winning image also DIED ON this day. Born on 8 August 1934 : He died on 12 May 2018
“Then the Lord said that he is restoring and CHANGING THE IMAGE. June 16, 2020, there will be a NEW IMAGE in South Africa.
The Lord said, ‘JUNE 16, 2020, will mark a new kind of celebration!!”
She says her attention was also turned to Lillian Ngoyi who lead the August 9 1956 march of approximately 20 000 women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s oppressive pass laws. She was prompted to send a message to 13 SA women that the Lord brought to her mind.
