The Lion of Judah Roars in Africa
We have been back for over one month, and have digested some of the
things God is doing in Africa. Thanks
to your prayers, we are still being informed of some of the results from our
trip. We will be sharing these
things with you. We will try to give you a brief report and a picture each
week. We hope this will give you
some idea of what God is doing through your prayers, and yet not be too
overbearing for your time.
believe that God is arising in the nations.
We believe that He is rising up in this nation.
We believe that the Lion of Judah is Rising and Beginning to Roar in
is moving in Africa.
Many Christians have written books and articles about the move of God in
Africa today. Our recent trips to
Burkina Faso, Kenya, and Nigeria have witnessed this truth into our spirits.
When Dan and I were in Kenya, in January of 2002, Dan had a vision of a
Lion roaming the peaks of the mountains of Kenya and beginning to roar.
We were conducting a pastors and leaders conference in the Kakemega area
of western Kenya. Later in that
conference, the Spirit of God fell on all of us.
Many were prostrate before the awesome manifestation of the presence of
God. After some time some of us
heard a lion roaring. We thought at
first that God had moved on some of the people to roar like a lion. However, when the roaring continued I looked around, walked
around and saw that no person was uttering these roaring sounds.
After some time the roaring stopped, and others testified how they had
heard the roaring sounds. God is
beginning to move like a roaring lion in Africa.
Bible has some insight to offer concerning the Lord as a roaring lion.
Some of those truths are presented here.
a lion has its prey, he will roar to keep other beings animal and human, from
taking his prey from him. So, the
Lord will roar over His people when He comes to protect them.
The lion of Judah will rise up and capture us for Himself and will
protect us from other attackers. We
have seen God rise up over His people in Africa, protecting them, delivering
them, healing them and providing for them.
We were in some difficult and trying situations, but God, through the
prayers of His people always brought us through.
He will do this in the difficult times that lie ahead.
the Lion of Judah begins to roar, a shaking will occur, but God promises to
provide for His people during the shaking.
He promises to make us holy during the shaking, and to keep foreign
intruders from occupying our land, our heart, which is His temple.
He promises to do this for both the spiritual Jerusalem, which is our
spirit, and His natural Jerusalem. We
are seeing things shaken here and in Africa.
The call to repentance, holiness, and restoration is coming forth, and
being received and acted upon. The
recurring theme God had us bring forth in Africa was the call to receive and
walk in His holiness and to know His power.
is rising up from within us, leading us into new battles, internal and external.
Nothing will stop Him. We
shall be a holy people; His light in us will cause our enemies to flee from Him
who lives within us. We have seen
this in Africa and the church in America shall rise up and be victorious. We saw people delivered from spirits of witchcraft and
sorcery. We saw people freed from
generational bondage of fear, shame and other strongholds.
the Lion roars, many will prophesy. You
have a deep reverence and respect for the word of God in those times.
You only want to declare what God is saying, and many will move in this
dimension during these days. We
have seen this in Africa and know it will also increase in our nation.
We saw people learn to pray over others.
We saw people healed one day and then minister healing the next day.
We saw God bringing a prophetic word to many, and anoint the pastors to
move in this type of ministry.
Lion of Judah will bring forth the judgments of God as described in Revelation.
The church's finest hour is yet to come, but it is coming now.
We saw leaders have tears in their eyes as they began to understand and
move in the authority that is theirs in Christ.
of you know about the turmoil in the Episcopal Church through their acceptance
of the homosexual lifestyle. A
recent intercessors report indicated that two locations in Africa were standing
for righteousness. The Episcopal
Bishop in Kenya and the Bishop over the Owerri State in Nigeria were noted as
having taken strong stands against these decisions.
Your prayers keep the Son of Righteousness arising with healing in His
for us as we continue to work in Kenya, Nigeria, and Burkina Faso and as we
begin to work in South Africa. Pray
for us as we share these things with other nations, and establish training and
restoration centers in the locations God provides.
