The key message at a prophetic conference in Modimolle (Nylstroom) last weekend was the need for reformation to take place in the Church in order for it to bring about reformation in communities, the marketplace and government.
Speaking at a packed gathering hosted by the Company of Prophets (COP) SA at the Koinonia Christian Centre, Janet Brann-Hollis said that at a time when institutions are breaking down, and crime and social injustice are at a high, the message from the Father’s heart is one of reformation — a reformed mindset that starts in the Church.
“It’s about reformation and not culture within the Church,” she said.
Bran-Hollis said that after the Covid pandemic there is a sense of “the great reset”. She said reformation is also about a great reset. The 12 apostles needed a reformation mindset to fulfil what the Lord commissioned them to do.
“Reformers carry that message on their hearts and that reformation will not leave you comfortable and will encourage you to do more,” she said.
She said she believes in this hour God is raising up leaders with a heart of reformation to see lives changed for the better. For reformation to take effect, foundations need to be reset. Reformation breaks through all cultural, religious and political barriers to bring forth Kingdom governance.
“It all begins with renewing our minds and this requires us to check our hearts and repent,” she said.
Bran-Hollis noted that reformation does not accept the mundane/ status quo but brings about hope and hope brings reformation. She said she believes the Lord is raising up a Church without walls!
Other COP speakers, Dr Irma Simpson, Henry Motebang and Sheldon Kidwell, shared their views on reformation and the apostolic and prophetic foundation of the Church being restored to its former state known as the Ekklesia — meaning Church belonging to the Lord and called-out ones.
The Ekklesia were not subject to the religious, political/ governing bodies of the day but were subject to Kingdom authority through Christ. The speakers emphasised that apostolic and prophetic ministry within the Church is breaking out into communities, the marketplace and government to bring about reformation. The Church is called to teach and nurture these ministries.
Motebang exhorted the congregation and citizens of Modimolle to “stop camping” and to “pack your bags” as it is time for change within the church in this new season.
He said: “There’s a danger in getting comfortable” and that the Lord is calling them to become reformers in this hour.
