The Church that was caught off-guard – Part 3 — Clementia Pae

It is with utmost fear and trembling before the Almighty God that I release this word, in this critical time, where we are finding ourselves at a crossroads, as a Church and a nation in South Africa.

This in response to the word that was released by Prophet Vuyokazi Matu on March 22 with the heading: “God says ANC must handover leadership to Mogoeng within 10 days.”

Before writing this word, the Lord first led me to part 2 of the word which I released at the end of 2019. Here I shared the story of a man of God who lived a double life for almost 15 years, and refused to repent. Recently however, his sin was sadly exposed publicly on social media. When this happened, the Lord took me back to the journey where this man of God was warned several times, and yet refused to humble himself before the Almighty. The Lord caused me to mourn for this situation again, as if it was new, and yet I had mourned and wept for years before, concerning this. This time however, I was mourning not only for the sin itself, but for the downfall of this man of God. I still do today. In my
mourning, I am crying out to the Lord for mercy, for him to completely repent (not hiding anything), and to be fully restored.

But why did the Lord send me back to this message? Is it because He rejoices in the downfall of men? No. Does He want me to brag about this message? Absolutely not. Instead, He is bringing this message back as a warning, to all those who would refuse to repent. He is also warning the prophets, of the dangers of keeping quiet when God is sending them a message. Because if I had kept quiet on this matter of this pastor in question, today his blood “his public downfall” would have been in my hands.

Now, back to the message that was released through Prophet Vuyokazi Matu. Personally, when I received the message, I did not respond. I went down on my knees, and I prayed, because the fear of the Lord gripped me. I prayed for her. I prayed for the Church. I prayed for the nation. I dared not respond without enquiring from the Lord. Even though I knew prophet Matu. I still had to ponder on this message a lot, because I fear God. When I did this, the Lord then said: “You are going to keep quiet, and let me speak. You are not to utter a word.”

The Lord indeed spoke. In a vision that night, and for the first time in my walk with the Lord, He, the Lord actually showed me the slave trade that took place in this continent of Africa, and in this nation of South Africa. I actually saw how money was exchanged for souls. Men, fathers, mother, kings, were selling their children, their communities,
their people, into slavery. I sensed a lot of fear among these people, as this was happening.

There was not a lot of talk among these traders, but just movement. A shocking and terrifying scene. I also realised that the fear among these people was very contagious. When it grips a person, it paralyses them, and immediately they just obey the slave masters. Even “good people” were being gripped by this fear.

I then asked the Lord what this meant. The Lord said: “My people have been sold into slavery, by those who rule over them. For generations this has happened. When they did receive independence/liberation from their cruel masters of oppression and colonialism the slave trade did not end. Because the liberation was not complete. Their new rulers still refused to know me. They rejected me and the slave-trade has continued. The Church has joined the slave-trade as well. Hence, she is silent in the presence of wickedness. She cannot hear Me, she refuses My word, she kills My prophets, and she is lukewarm in her faith and her walk with Me. No one can hold two covenants and still claim to hear Me.”

The Lord again reminded me that in 2015 I attended the yearly “All Nations Convocation Jerusalem”, which is hosted by the Jerusalem House of Prayer for All Nations. I was privileged to be present when Apostle Cindy Jacobs prophesied over South Africa, saying that there were certain people who had invaded the borders of our nation, and were coming to take over the nation. In other words, they were coming to rule the nation. They had infiltrated our government. But God was going to expose them. She said that God would expose these infiltrators because He was honouring the prayers of the intercessors. Lo and behold, not long after that, the Guptas who almost took over the nation through the leadership of the former president Jacob Zuma, were exposed, and God thwarted their plan, the plan of the enemy. Even then, the Church went silent.

The Lord said: “Those who kill the true prophets, they do so, also because they do not understand the Kingdom mandate, to begin with. They do not understand that it is My plan and My will that My people may bring and manifest My rulership here on the earth. Many good and well-meaning people, think that I only came to save them so that they
may go to heaven when they die. They do not understand that I wanted to bring My government, My rulership and My dominion here on the earth. Hence, they can be used by the enemy to oppose what I am doing.

34 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” — Luke 13:34-35

“These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 ‘I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither [k]cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing”—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.[l] Therefore be [m]zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.’ 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” — Revelation 3:14-21

The Lord says: “I am calling you to repent for trampling my Word underfoot. You spoke without thinking. You did not consult me. You spoke from your state of brokenness, bondage and darkness. The same rubble you have caused, when you rejected my message, has now filled your own mouth and has almost choked you. Hence your mouth is twisted. Ask me to help you remove it. Remove the broken glasses and pieces of stone from your mouth, one by one. Allow me to heal you. For I have come to establish my Kingdom government. I am the righteous one. I relent from sending calamity. Do not be destroyed together with Babylon and her wicked rulers. I have come to vindicate my own. Are you not my own? If you are, then turn and come back to me. Do this swiftly. Hurry. Jump on to the wagon of liberty. Jump on to the flight of victory.

“It begins with repentance. I am waiting for you, with My hands wide open. I do not want anyone to be left behind. I do not rejoice in a divided Church. For this blocks the flow of My blessing.”

I then asked the Lord what He meant about holding two covenants. He went on to say that, many have been caught up in covenant with death because their political parties have made very, very deep covenants with death. And when you have a covenant with death you cannot reason well. You cannot hear God.

Return, Israel, to the Lord your God. Your sins have been your downfall! 2 Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips. 3 Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses. We will never again say ‘Our gods’ to what our own hands have made, for in you the fatherless find compassion.” — Hosea 14:1-13

“Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves.” — Jeremiah 51:6

You who have escaped the sword, leave and do not linger! Remember the Lord in a distant land, and call to mind Jerusalem.” — Jeremiah 51:50

The Lord says, “I have sounded the siren, can you hear it? I have released the warning. My true prophets can no longer be silent when I am speaking. My Levites can no longer shrink back when I release the songs of warfare and deliverance through them. I am roaring in this nation. I am roaring judgement over the wicked. I am roaring victory over the righteous. I am bringing everything to divine alignment. I will leave no stone unturned. I am aligning everything to My will and My purpose. I am establishing My government, in My own specifications, design and order. Just watch.

“No more shall sin and wickedness be shoved under the carpet, at the expense of the weak and the poor. I am going public with everything. Do not be surprised when you see big names fall. I have set before you, life and death, choose life. Choose my instruction, instead of choice silver, my knowledge instead of choice gold, because in wisdom there are riches and honour, forevermore.”

“I have sent my servant to liberate this nation from slavery. He comes as a symbol of the bridegroom of blood (Exodus 4:25b) The one who keeps my covenant. He trembles at my voice, receive him. I also have My remnant. These ones have humbled themselves and have prayed and sought My face and My will for this nation. They stood in the gap, so that I may not destroy the nation. They stood in the gap so that the prophetic word that proceeds from My mouth may be fulfilled. So that My Kingdom government may be birthed safely and completely. I have now come to honour these. I have come to fulfil My covenant, My promise.

I charge you however, to stay put, be humble, be discerning. Continue to search your heart, repent of anything that might disqualify you from being My witness and My living testimony. Go back and apologise to those you have wronged before. Release those who have wronged you. Go deep in your repentance. Do not leave things hanging.
Repentance is not condemnation, it is deliverance, it is liberty. Walk with Me. Work with Me. Trust me. Have I ever failed you? I am shifting things, and I want you to be well prepared. I want to reveal My manifest power and My glory even more, in and through you. I am giving you a new song, says the Lord.”

“Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the Lord. 2“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. 3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.4 “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. 5 For your Maker is your husband — the Lord Almighty is his name –the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. 6 The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit— a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God. 7 “For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. 8 In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer. 9 “To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. 10 Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. 11 “Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with lapis lazuli. 12 I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. 13 All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. 14 In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you. 15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you. 16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; 17no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord. — Isaiah 54
