GOD SAID 2018 IS OUT!


FOREWORD

It is with great expectation and joy that we bring you “God Said 2018”! 

The Lord has once again been faithful in giving us great words of encouragement, wisdom and clear warnings for South Africa and the nations. 

Over the nine years we have been gathering, we have seen the prophetic word of the Lord accurately coming to pass and impact people. The testimonies of the words over nations have been a wonderful blessing. 

These prophetic words were received during the month of July 2017 as various prophets gathered to seek the Lord for the coming season and year. We gathered together with the desire to bring clear, significant and accurate prophetic direction and guidance. Our desire is that these prophetic words will help believers and the body of Christ prepare for the coming season and to bring people into a closer walk with Christ. 

It is with this heart and prayer that we submit this word to you and we believe it will direct you to pray for South Africa and the nations according to the will of God. As we said in our previous books, we believe that though the words were received for 2018, they are by no means limited to the year 2018. The ultimate fulfilment of these words will be in the time purposed for them by the Lord. 

Our prayer is that the words of this book will encourage, direct and protect you. May they draw you closer to the Living Christ who is the Spirit of Prophecy. May you be blessed as you step into this new season fully living for God as you read the word of the Lord in “God Said 2018.”

For the Testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy.” Rev. 19: 10b (NKJV)

SOUTH AFRICAN ECONOMY- GOD SAID 2017


Concerning the South African economy a short excerpt from the “God Said 2017:

“The South African economy is stagnant ; everything is on hold for the upcoming season. This will remain so until March/ April next year; up to then there will be very little movement evident while in the background there is actually a large amount of planning going on.”

GOD SAID 2015 SECTION IV THE NATIONS


blogpromo

SECTION 4- THE NATIONS

AFRICA:

 

ALGERIA

Christians Need to Get Involved

Although there is a strong Muslim influence in Algeria, the Christians of the country should not fear getting involved in the politics of their nation. The leadership of the nation has manipulated the law to stay in power. God will reveal this. The hearts of the young people will revolt against the regime that professes to be democratic but is not.

 

Change of Leadership

Troops are massing at the borders with war in their hearts. The local population will once again be the people who suffer. The Lord is bringing a change in the leadership of Algeria. The present leaders are arrogant and shouting for war but God will not allow it.

 

A lot of movement will take place across the borders of Algeria in the next 6 months. Factions within the country are receiving guns and ammunition from an unknown country in the Middle East, to stir up war. These shipments of weapons will be intercepted and sent to a harbour in Europe and destroyed. Thus the war in Algeria will fizzle out.

 

Cleansing the Land

Initially there might be an uprising and conflict, and leadership will be ousted. But then rain will come and wash the land and cleanse the country. The people in Algeria became numb, but God is awakening the nation. International funds will be released into Algeria for education and literacy in areas where there was no education before.

 

Economic Focus

The focus of the economy is on oil and gas exports but the Lord will redirect the focus to other sources also to improve the economy. A future growth in the tourism industry will further improve the economy. A vision was seen of different coloured cloths symbolising an increase in trade.

 

The Favour of God

Because of the many refugees Algeria is receiving, God will give the country favour.

 

Two Halves

The northern parts of Algeria will have turmoil. In the southern parts there are tribal groups that do not feel part of the rest of Algeria. They feel disconnected to what is happening in the north. They want to go on with life and not be involved in the northern conflict. It is important to include these tribes in nation building and representation. There might be the possibility that, if there is no integration, a similar demand for southern autonomy could happen in Algeria as did with Sudan and southern Sudan.

 

Women Praying

A vision was seen of women praying for the children of a barren portion of land. Their prayers will cause crops to grow again. There will be a settling towards the second half of 2015. People will again begin to grow the crops to sustain themselves in Algeria. There will be fewer deaths from hunger as they will sustain themselves with their own food.

 

BURKINA FASO

A vision was seen of Burkina Faso as a diamond, there is a special light that is over the country. God’s cross was seen over it signifying a strong base in Christianity in the country. Not a lot of attention is given to this nation as God has hidden it for a special purpose.

 

Although Burkina Faso has not been in the spotlight because of the the Ebola outbreak, its proximity to the outbreak will cause more international attention on this nation, and bring more foreign help to Burkina Faso. Pressure will be placed on government to change their ways. God is calling in a new stability and responsible governance into Burkina Faso. Rural development will increase because of outside help especially in agriculture and farming.

 

Education and health will also receive a lot more aid. The hearts of the people are being prepared to receive outside help, not to depend on it but to use it to position themselves to develop themselves in years to come. The people of Burkina Faso will become an example to other African countries on how to empower your people and how to make use of foreign countries and foreign aid to start up a new economic self-growth and development.

 

A Safe haven

Burkina Faso is in a region that is surrounded by nations with a spirit of ethnic violence and they have been called by the Lord to be a safe haven for those who are in need. The Lord wants to give this little nation a strategy to be able to dismantle the power of the warring spirit in that region, as it has to be addressed by the people that live under the oppression.

 

Economic Vision

Though Burkina Faso has the lowest literacy rate in the world, in the coming years there will be major technological advancements. Companies from eastern island nations (perhaps Malaysia or Philippines) will build a technology factory that will manufacture cell phones or iPads. Burkina Faso will export this product to the other African nations. The learned people of Burkina Faso people have received their education in foreign nations. They love their country and they will use what they have learned in their own homeland.

 

Prayer Movement

There seems to be a large Christian women prayer movement in Burkina Faso. Congregating in these prayer groups has been restricted to a maximum of groups of five. They don’t want to draw attention to themselves. The women are praying for their families and their nation. Because of their prayers the Lord is sending angels to bring a new level of prosperity to the people of Burkina Faso. Surrounding nations will want to learn from them.

 

A Hidden Leader

It seem to the people of this country that they do not have a choice with regard to leadership. But there is a hidden leader that God has been preparing. When the leader comes into power many changes will take place in government. This new leader might not come into power in the upcoming elections but the next.

 

BOTSWANA

Botswana is a model of African development. The people and government are very close together. It is a far richer nation than anyone anticipates – an oasis in the desert. It is a very important platform for southern African development and for launching into other southern African nations. A vision was seen of the Lord as the Lion of Judah that has stepped into this nation and make it flourish.

Previously, the nation did everything in their own strength, but God will change that. He has placed Botswana strategically so they can help the nations around them.

 

Botswana Banks

Illegal trading will be exposed Botswana banks. They will stop this by implementing new policies. Business people from other nations in southern Africa are hiding their money in the countries’ banks.

 

Investing

A vision was seen of high rise buildings going up signifying growth in the country and increased investments and business ventures.

 

A car building factory will be put up in Botswana. Heads of German companies are deliberating the advantages of constructing a factory in Botswana. This new factory will not be located in a big city. The Botswana economy will be diversifying to more than just diamonds and mining in order to employ the population and thus alleviate poverty and decrease state dependence. Investment in the country will be simplified. A diverse range of factories will arise; from car factories, bottling plants and boxing factories etc.

 

Mining and power generation will increase. Infrastructure will develop much faster in Botswana than the countries around them.

 

Green field energy projects like wind power will be expanded. A vision of wind turbines covering the landscape was seen.

 

Media

Developments in media and telecommunications will take place in Botswana. There will be great investment in cell phone technologies developing new services in the industry.

 

A Tertiary Hub

Intellectuals and well educated individuals will emerge in Botswana. The Lord is setting Botswana as a new tertiary educational hub in southern Africa. Economic development will continue.

 

CAMEROON

Most of Cameroon’s huge oil reserves have not yet been documented or seen. The Lord is keeping His hand over this nation and its oil reserves because He wants it to be discovered by the people that He designated it to. Nothing will be found until the right person or the right groupings come along.

 

Agriculture

A big emphasis is placed on the agriculture and the export of produce from Cameroon. Good trade will take place between Cameroon and the European Union that will open up the export market for produce. High production of maize will come from the fields.

 

Fashion industry

Growth in the fashion industry and its export will occur. New fabrics and fabric patterns will be developed that is unique to the country. The country has been underestimated. God is ushering in a new season of prosperity. He will place His creativity and uniqueness on the people.

Finance

Cameroon has had a turnaround policy which will bear major fruit in their nation. The economy of this country has been downplayed. But God will bless the Cameroonian economy to be an example to Africa. Development and foreign investments will increase significantly in the years to come. Gods heart for Cameroon is to make it a hub for stability in the region.

The small and informal businesses will become prosperous. Informal shops and stores will move into solid structures. Well educated people will be produced by Cameroon.

 

Government

Stability is coming in the government. God is placing His servants in key places and key roles in this country. Very stable economic development will take place over the next few years that will go unnoticed by many other countries. God is protective over foreign businesses that are allowed into Cameroon. New mining ventures will open up. The government will handle mining investments with wisdom for the benefit of the people of Cameroon.

 

Intercession for the unborn babies

The church has to pray for the protection of unborn babies, babies and children.

 

Sport

Sport development will take place in Cameroon. Sports training facilities will be built to attract European sport clubs. International athletes and especially soccer players will make use of newly built facilities, stadiums and sports venues. A prominent tennis player will come out of Cameroon. He will have a multi-coloured background and attract a diverse following. This sports star will restore the pride of Cameroon.

 

LIBYA

Hopelessness has settled over Libya. New laws will be written to restore hope to the people. Heads of state will come together and discuss a new constitution. But implementation of the new constitution will take time.

 

There was a lot of potential for progress and change after the old government was taken out in Libya. Many people were excited and full of hope, but it seems that the opposite is happening from what everybody had hoped would occur.

 

Many dissatisfied groups, who were living under fear and could not voice their demands and needs, have now, for the first time, taken the courage to speak out and make their needs known and fight for their right and position in the country.

 

A new equilibrium amongst the people groups in Libya and a new spirit of nation building needs to come forth. This will happen through dialogue between the different groupings. They need to understand their position in the country and their relation to each another. The conflict in Libya is being escalated by the Muslim brotherhood and other factions who use the turmoil for their own personal gain and towards the bigger Muslim plan for the whole of northern Africa and the Middle East. There is a great demand for democracy in many of the civilians in Libya, but it is in conflict with the Muslim extremism that wants to settle itself in Libya. This conflict will not be resolved in 2015.

 

Education

A new education program will be implemented. Because of the current danger of public places, homebound women and children will begin to implement new home schooling systems. The women will have wisdom to protect their families and warn them of possible danger.

 

Finance

Business, farming, import and export has ground to a halt. The country has become a place of fear. This wall of fear needs to be demolished, but it will take time.

 

For many years international companies were uninterested in Libya. But God will now put the international business attention on Libya. Selected opportunities and niche markets will open up for foreign investment. This will start to grow the Libyan economy.

 

A New Openness

Libya will open for outside assistance. The older generation fear foreign influence because of the possible change it will bring. The younger generation is in favour of help from western nations. Governments of western nations, in future, will have a strong influence in Libya and bring stability and ease the conflict between tribal factions.

 

Prayer for Libya

Because of persecution many Christians are leaving the country. Without the Christians in the country there will be no prayer. This will open up a gap for the enemy to escalate the conflict and the loss of life. A window of God’s grace, hope and help has opened for Libya. Christians need to take hold of this opportunity and use it wisely. Conflicting forces are pulling the nation into different directions. Prayer is needed in this regard.

 

Peace will come

The military has a strong influence in the country. A vision was seen of hail falling signifying hard times ahead.

 

A vision was seen of Muslim women wearing traditional clothing, and then taking it off; change will come in the land. The Lord showed an olive branch over the country which means that there will come a season of peace.

 

MIDDLE EAST

ISRAEL

Finance

Israel is financially strained and struggling to find money. Although some people have been sending money to the country others are convinced withholding the money will end the war.

 

A Vision was seen of young Israelis getting fed up with the situation in their country and leaving to work elsewhere. They are sending money back into the country to support their parents and families. These young Israelis are losing their faith and their identity in the process. Parents are praying for peace in Israel so that their children will return to their nation and their faith.

 

Finding Solutions

The Israeli leadership are not looking to God for solutions. Rabbis have tried to counsel the leadership according to scripture. An impasse has been reached between the spiritual leaders and government.

Fuelling the Conflict

There are behind the scene antagonists fuelling the conflict between Hamas and Israel in Gaza. In 2015 the parties involved will be revealed. The media will expose the countries and parties and their involvement in the attacks against Israel. Israel will continue to experience attacks throughout 2015.

 

A vision was seen of the Israelis laying down their weapons and, in doing so, giving their enemy an opportunity. The Palestinians will put up a deceptive facade of innocence and attack when Israel shows the first sign of weakness.

 

In public people will say they are not supporting the Palestinians but in secret they will fund the Palestinian military with weapons. Signs of peace and negotiations for peace will take place but no peace will come.

 

Interceding for Israel

A vision was seen of a serpent or dragon coming out of the Mediterranean Sea and attacking the coast line of Israel. It will be an unexpected attack. In the vision the serpent or dragon seemed to come from the ocean depths and only reveals itself when it reaches the shoreline. Many people that have never before prayed for Israel will be moved to pray and intercede for the country and its people. Conflict will arise in America regarding support for Israel. It will become a contentious issue amongst politicians.

 

A Nuclear Threat

A nuclear threat against Israel will occur in 2015. This will further threaten the peace and stability in the Middle East. A vision was seen of a tremendous aerial explosion over a greatly populated area of Israel. This explosion will cause terror amongst the people but will have no effect on the ground.

 

Times and Seasons

2015 will be a very significant year for Israel. People will have to clearly discern the times as the Lord will show His arm concerning the nation.

Scripture God gave for the people of Israel was Zachariah 12:3, “On that day when all the nations of earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations, all that try to move her will injure themselves”.

 

We will see a lot of other nations join the outcry of Israel against Palestine, especially China and Russia. The alignment to the Palestinian people will cause a global escalation of the crisis. There will not be a quick solution as everybody hopes but ultimately the Lord will show His hand in Israel’s favour and they will not lose the ground that they have taken.

 

IRAQ

Leadership Vacuum

Iraq has seen a big turnaround of leaders. This trend will continue into the next year. The people are dissatisfied with proposed leaders and cannot find an appropriate candidate. Nobody seems to have a solution for Iraq. There is a lack of proper government, housing, farming, import .

GOD SAID 2015! SECTION 1


blogpromo

FOREWORD

We are thrilled to present you with a prophetic word for 2015, comprised of detailed words for specific nations, compiled in August 2014. Those of our esteemed readers who are familiar with the work of the Prophet’s Round Table should be aware that these words have been received in a time of reclusion, concentrated prayer and meditation on the voice of God. The words for 2012, 2013 and 2014 have proven exceptionally correct as you can verify at our members’ online platforms such as andriesvanheerden.wordpress.com, crocus.co.za and wipapostolic.co.za. We ask that you read prayerfully through this document a couple of times. God wants to point us in the right direction regarding business and personal life decisions and warn us of upcoming dangers. You can come back to this document throughout 2015 to intercede for the nations and receive guidance for your personal practical walk with God.

SECTION1: SOUTH AFRICA

 

ECONOMY

 

Praise God for a word on our local economy in South Africa. During our time of prayer we felt God said that in 2015 economists will become more vocal and critical towards government and the powers that be. There will be a lot of discussion taking place in the media and public debates will act as attempts to stabilize the economy. There will not be an upward trend but rather a levelling that will take place. Although there will be many endeavours to grow the economy rapidly, it simply will not happen.

NEW LEADERSHIP

A new leader, who will bring planning and organization to a different level, will rise up. The current expansion of infrastructure is going to be enlarged exponentially, far above what the government outlines have been. The black economic empowerment program is going to go into a season of great transformation which will lead to a lot of opportunities for businesses. Where it was once a closed pool, it will now be open. Over all the rand will gain some ground in the coming year and contrary to certain predictions it will not lose much ground against the dollar.

BUSINESSMEN IN THE ECONOMY

The government will attempt to involve business people in their decision making processes with regard to their role in the economy. Business people will be reluctant because their agenda(s) and the government’s plans regarding the economy do not coincide. Ultimately the government will try to bring everything under one covering, and by so doing, under its control. Business people will distance themselves from what the government is doing in certain aspects of the economy.

Economy and business are two different and separate categories. This can even be perceived in the spirit. Businessmen do not want to speak into the economy. The economy needs solid, sturdy, steady conservative people that will steer the ship and keep it upright, so that decisions regarding the economy can be executed on ground level.

GOVERNMENT SPENDING

The government has ordered that certain amounts of money have to be spent. Heads of departments, especially regional departments, have been commissioned by the various premiers to make sure the money will be spent on pressing issues such as roads, water and sanitation. Government wants to institute certain demands of the public to still the rioting voices of the people. There is a group of agitators going around the country with the aim to raise awareness of the pressing issues. They are holding the government accountable for not providing essential services.

God showed a vision of bags of money opening up. There are various departments which budgets are going to be used positively in this coming year. There will be relationships between departments in government that will aid the economy. Money will be transferred from one department to another and there will be projects that will be launched together. This will aid the economy as it will have a positive effect on how the country is perceived internationally.

Some of these projects will be purely aimed at building awareness and improving South Africa’s image internationally. The theme will be the upliftment of the people, showing that South Africa is moving ahead. It will seem as if there is instability with regard to putting new plans into effect. This is however God’s plan in action. He will use the plans and available funding to assist the economy. The Lord will use certain role players in departments to re-plan and funds will be moved so that there will be an effective outcome. The economy in general will stabilise, but will not see huge growth very quickly. Plans to change this will emerge. These plans will have an effect in the future and lead to more stability.

PUBLIC SERVICE SPENDING

There will be a great increase in public service spending. Fast tracking the need for housing, electricity, water and sewage will be seen especially in the more economically active regions. Government will become more serious about the management of municipalities in areas where the economy is really active, focussing on changing first those economically valuable municipalities before tackling the small municipalities that do not have strong economies.

 

Part of this will be due to the reaction of the strikes that have taken place in South Africa in 2014 and the demands that were made from the people regarding basic services.

 

PUBLIC SERVICE SPENDING

There will be a great increase in public service spending, thereby fast tracking the need for housing, electricity, water and sewage, especially in the more economically active regions. Government will become more serious about the management of economically active municipalities, before tackling the smaller and weaker ones.

This will be partly due to the strikes that have taken place in South Africa in 2014 and the demands that were made from the people regarding basic services.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

More attention will be placed on new models and systems for public transport. Other countries will be investigated and a lot of attention will be placed on the possibility of solving South Africa’s transport problems by implementing infrastructure and models not yet seen in this country.

CORRUPTION

A vision was seen of gold coins falling into golden bowls with people waiting to grab them. The vision continued with the gold melting which then becomes difficult to grab. We felt this vision was referring to corruption in this nation. God will put strategies and legislation into place by which corruption will be made more difficult. The Lord then showed a vault with angels standing in front of it, which means that the country’s finance is being protected. The melted gold then turns into bars of gold, being stored in the vault, indicating that the economy will gradually become strong again. We need to pray for Gods protection and strength.

We will see many people being exposed and losing their jobs because of corruption. This will pave the road for leaders with noble, open and honest hearts to come into position. Systems that will be brought into place will start to work. Anti-corruption programs, feedback and check systems will start to function in the local economy. Although this won’t grow in leaps and bounds, it will definitely not decline but continue to be a positive factor.

REGIONAL ECONOMIES

The regional and rural economies specifically will gain crucial importance. A shift away from the cities has developed over time and will continue to increase for the next couple of years, this will include a return of professional people. We advise people to not be weary of moving to the country, the so-called “Platteland”.

There has been an overemphasis on mining and the Lord is correcting this. The reason we see so many problems in the mining sector is because it has been seen as easy money and it is still very alluring to corrupt people. There are many other aspects of the economy that can be opened for business opportunities, which few are looking at. These aspects have not received the attention they deserve. Many new prospects can be revealed if the people are willing to give attention to the other aspects of the economy. God will address a lot of corrupt people in governmental spheres that have very strong ties with illegal drug trading. They planned to establish a counter parallel economy in rural areas but the Lord is going to address this in serious ways over the next year or two. Please keep this in your prayers.

OCEAN HARVESTING PROGRAM

An Ocean Harvesting Program will be implemented. This program is going to have great regional success in small groupings of the economy, which will help to alleviate poverty. The economy is going to advance in areas that were not open before. The environmental program that the government has been trying to implement will start to come into effect this year.

WARNING:

A soup bowl with people eating out of it was seen; with a hand appearing, indicating that it is enough, this must stop. In this coming year there will be a restructuring and resourcing plan, which will bring many ‘cut back waves’. It will seem like a resurgence of an old regime, but this notion will dissipate.

 

 

BUSINESS

 

Over the last years the South African business sector had to become very adaptable to different economic climates. In the next year businesses will flourish in the niches that they have settled themselves into. A lot of new initiatives will come from small businesses, with great advancements being made, that will have a major impact on our country.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Government has made a lot of promises to the business sector in the past without taking the necessary action. During 2015 government will undergo a change in attitude and fulfil their promises. SARS (South African Revenue Services) will make adjustments to meet business people halfway.

Small business is burdened by government. This will be addressed by leadership in government who will be able to discern this burden and have a different perspective than those who led before. They will have a heart to reach out to businesses instead of dictating to them.

Entrepreneurship will increase and encouraging stories will emerge in the media that will inspire even the most disadvantaged person to start their own business. The need from entrepreneurs will be so great that government will have to respond with more support.

 

Although government has approached businesses to cooperate on their agenda, businesses have not been interested in collaborating with them. However, on the other hand, a group of businessmen have, out of their own initiative, brought something new to the government and requested a relaxing of the rules as they feel there are far too many restrictions.

 

There are businesses that do not adhere to regulations and some will be caught out with things like not paying customs and other irregularities.

A vision was seen of a big thick book of rules that nobody opens or looks at. On account of this, business people are calling for the simplification of rules. Government will attend to this call.

There is a multi-level business movement that is going to appear in different regions and provinces. This movement will include businesses that in the past worked against each other but will now work together to move boundaries that have been put in place by government.

SMALL TO MEDIUM BUSINESS ENTERPRISES

Regarding smaller businesses God is saying,“Get your act together with regard to tax”. The government looked at the bigger businesses with regard to tax offences but there will be initiative to look at smaller businesses as well. Because of this, smaller businesses will also work together and some will amalgamate and become bigger companies. The words, “Made in Africa” were heard during our time of prayer, indicating that Africa will lead a brand movement. It may not necessarily be branded as “Made in Africa”, but there will be a positive message behind this movement and other African countries will be pulled in as well. The main country where development will take place is in South Africa, but South Africa and some other African nations will work together with regard to business and producing products.

 

Identifying Your Niche

Small businesses; with a turnover of between half a million up to one million Rand a year, need to identify their niche and keep to it. These small businesses are owned by one, two or three individuals and have very specialised products or services. They should only focus on that. There will be more than enough market share for them. These business people are looking at all kinds of plans to enhance their trades but this is going to lead to a lot of wasted energy. God’s advice to such businesses is: Simply focus on what you are good at, deliver good services and products to your clientele. You are extremely important to the economy of the country, and your region. The importance of innovative small business will become prevalent.

 

New Ideas

To those people who are sitting on their ideas, God is saying: You have to figure out how to launch these even if you are running them parallel with a business or job you currently have. Start getting these ideas off the ground so that they may be realised.

A vision was seen of women in their kitchens, manufacturing beauty and hair products. There will emerge a whole new industry of these homemade products for the African market.

It will start as home industries, expanding and reaching across borders. Sales women will go to people’s homes to demonstrate their products. Men will also become involved and the products will go into the homes of other countries as well, especially those bordering South Africa.

 

Doors of Opportunities

Similar doors of opportunity are opening for small businesses to market their products in South Africa’s neighbouring countries. There will be new product initiatives that will be driven by certain major banks, whereby small to medium businesses will be able to market themselves in other nations.

 

Small Business Forums

Small business forums will start up from townships to suburbs, where small businesses will come together and become support and investment structures for one another. Gatherings, where discussions will take place about topics like good financial management, will assist young people to start businesses. This will also help other businesses in the community with their finances. The more disadvantaged areas will see these business forums coming to the fore, motivating each other and supporting one another with resources. The government will buy into these forums and start to assist them with further help like education.

 

A Spiritual Command

There is a spiritual command going out to niche businesses to start writing down the things that worked for them – what they have done right and how to connect with other businesses. These helpful hints will be published in a book. Between the next three to five years books will be published about niche businesses. These “How to” books will go out into the world and help small businesses in other countries, especially in Africa. They will have a unique South African flavour but will be successful throughout Africa. They will also instruct on how to implement and use investment money effectively.

 

INNER CITIES

Businesses in the inner cities will be going through some tough times. Some of them will close, and people must be prepared for that. Many businesses will go ‘back to basics’; ideas that were thought outdated will be perceived as good again. They will also go back to traditional, handmade products.

 

LABOUR

There have been many disputes around labour law which government will re-look in order to come to a place of agreement. There will be some changes that will help employ South Africans again.

 

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS VENTURES

Many international businesses will move to South Africa in the next year. A lot of smaller start ups will be run by foreigners. A spark of new ideas is needed amongst the rural people, besides the usual fruit or curio shops. New avenues are opening and God is bringing foreigners in to create these opportunities.

 

HOME BASED BUSINESS

A new initiative is coming particularly for already existing businesses. Home-based businesses will be crossing borders to supply goods to neighbouring countries right from their homes.

 

VARIOUS INDUSTRIES:

 

BUILDING AND HOUSING SECTOR

Housing models and projects that were successful in SA will be exported to neighbouring countries. Resources for building will be developed in SA. These resources will be exported to neighbouring countries. SA businesses will help develop these countries’ own resources in order to be able to sustain building and housing development in their nations. The building sector in SA will continue to grow locally and abroad. A lot of construction companies will start to build in other nations.

 

FISHING INDUSTRY

The government will become much more serious about preserving the fishing industry and fishing waters of SA. The value that SA has in its waters will be rediscovered, not only for feeding people but also for export. The government will take strong action against other countries fishing in South African waters. Great focus will be placed on advancing the industry, and stabilising and preserving the water resources.

 

MANUFACTURING

Manufacturing businesses will rise up again. A vision of clothes being manufactured was seen. There will be a restriction on import in order to allow the clothing industry to move forward again. South African fashion has many people with fabulous skills who will take the world by storm. But these people need better standards in manufacturing in the South African industry. There will be an exchange of expertise between South Africa and neighbouring countries in the cotton and clothing industries. Fashion is drawing the attention of artistic people. More of them will get involved in the local fashion industry.

 

PRODUCE

There will be a growth in the produce industry in 2014-2015. Exports of products like fruits and vegetables will increase and new optimism will return for producers and export businesses in South Africa.

 

PUBLISHING INDUSTRY

There will be greater pressure on the publishing industry. There is an interim phase where e-platform(s) have to show better growth and where traditional printing and publishing will show a slight decrease. During this process the niche printing publishers have a chance to stabilise and grow into bigger businesses.

 

GOVERNMENT

 

A new season is dawning that will become visible to the public in the next season.

The DA and other opposition parties will increasingly complement the ANC on decision making. A lot will be said about the ANC adopting the opposition party’s ideas. This will show a turnabout that is taking place in government. The Freedom Front will also take hands with government to work together in certain sectors.

 

A change of government attitude towards farmers and their plight will take place. Safety and security of farmers will be on the agenda and there will be a strategy implemented to facilitate a turnaround in the struggle of the farmers.

 

Government policy on the South African Rand will prepare a platform for strengthening the currency in the future.

 

The Public Protector’s Office will be lifted up and a new level of respect and honour will come from government towards the Public Protector.

 

There will be an integration of decision making between the Justice system and Public Protector System which will vindicate decision making and uplift the Public Protector to a place of honour, also in government. Military investment from countries like the USA, France and UK will increase. Out of that SA will start training other African countries with regard to their military. SA will have war games with other African countries to educate and train those military forces in African countries, the same way the South African military forces were trained and educated by the USA, France and the UK.

 

A LEADERSHIP CRISIS

The South African government is looking for leaders. Leaders cannot be found in the traditional way anymore. Looking for people on the same level of qualification and experience as current leadership is not delivering the leadership needed. This strategy will change. Government will start to go to universities and have discussions with the institutions. They will approach the lectures and professors to name the top students so they can enter sponsorship programs to receive training in the areas of finance, geology and other key areas where there is a huge lack of qualified leadership. The mining industry is also experiencing a lack of expertise. There are not enough geologists, metallurgists and other people to manage the mining resources. The older generation is not considered anymore. Those in their thirties who are confident, well dressed, well-spoken and can represent South Africa accurately, will be considered.

If candidates have three to five years’ experience, it will be seen as sufficient enough. There is a new push to get the young leaders up. The system of bringing friends into position will fade away. The old cadre has come to an end. The wives of the current cadres are not going to be involved anymore.

 

A total restructuring of advisory positions in government departments will take place.

 

Many young faces (including white faces) with expertise will appear in government departments. A new excitement will appear in the lower ranks of government – people with a vision, mission, cohesion and cooperation amongst one another. In-house training and lifting the level of skills of current employees, will become very important in government. There will also be a new focus on service quality and service delivery to the public.

 

EXPOSING CORRUPT LEADERS

There are individuals in government that are perceived as being good, but they are deceptive. People who are ‘calling them out’ will be attacked and criticised. They must stay strong as they are used by God and should not doubt themselves. The resignation of Pallo Jordan will cause the public to place more pressure on government to get rid of officials and individuals that overstepped the line and are being caught out. An increasing number of African graduates will emerge in the public sector. They will differ from the previous generation. Their aim will be productivity and effectiveness. Although they will demand high salaries they will work hard and enjoy what they are doing.

 

The consultants appearing in media and advising at the boardroom tables will be younger than previously. An increasing number of young doctors and professors will start to surface.

 

A PUSH FOR SKILLS

A vision was seen of fifteen high level government officials coming together. These officials did not include Jacob Zuma or Cyril Ramaphosa. The Pallo Jordan incident set an example of the necessity to verify a person’s qualifications in order to avoid any further scandals. The people coming in position will be credible, approved and authentic and have verified qualifications. Some of them have studied abroad and came back with international degrees. These degrees will be desirable because of its superior standard compared to many South African qualifications. The younger generation will be encouraged to enrol in International Business Schools like Harvard Business School. Students will receive sponsorships to study abroad and return to South Africa with the urgently needed skills attained. There will be a push for proper skills in the area of government.

SA will not be announcing to the world that they are a Christian country; but there will be increasing evidence in the nation that South Africa is a Godly country. People will strive to act right in order to honour God and be a witness. This will reflect on the future preparation and plans the government is making. A five year plan was seen on the table that has been rejected. A new plan has been settled upon. The new plan is much smaller and condensed but can be implemented more effectively than the previous one.

 

THE PRESIDENCY

Our current president will not be the president for his whole term; Jacob Zuma will be standing back from the presidency in the next season.

 

The ANC has been looking for a new presidential leader who will be a long term leader. They are looking for someone who is upstanding and with an unquestionable track record. An appropriate candidate was seen: A person with a church background, with a praying mother and a pastor father, a person that veered away from faith during formal education, but the principles are still inside the person.

 

One of Jacob Zuma’s three younger wives is highly educated and is ambitiously pursuing a seat in parliament. The Lord will use her to stand in the gap for women and bring a good message. She will face resistance but the Lord has called her to be a spokesperson for women in parliament. She has a long term vision. When her husband Zuma exits, she will enter.

 

BRICS

The BRICS members will increasingly develop into industrialised countries, distinguished by their large, fast-growing economies and significant influence on regional and global affairs. The impact of BRICS and the integration of those nations, working together will become evident. An increasing number of Brazilians, Russians, Indians and Chinese will be involved in structural components in the South African government. This must not be seen as negative. The relationships between the BRICS countries will strengthen and will be constructive to the development of South Africa and the other countries.

 

A vision was seen of the South African president crowned and dressed as a king. This could indicate that the new leader, after Jacob Zuma, will be regal in stature.

 

CHANGES IN PARLIAMENT

A vision was seen of rows of benches being removed from parliament. A change is coming with regard to the structures and number of people in parliament. There will also be a new design for the parliament building. The new building will symbolise the leaving behind of the old. The building will have a contemporary amphi-theatre style design resembling the UN’s general assembly hall.

 

REGIONAL GOVERNMENT

The next year will see a lot of improvement on local government level; many changes that have been brought in the area of accountability will start to realise. That which has been dysfunctional will start to function properly in the next year. There will be a number of draft policies by several local governments that will be scrapped as leaders will realise that the policies will not work. Heads of regional government will need advice or wait for miracles as they wont know what to do next. Limpopo will lead the way with regard to regional policy. The changes to the Limpopo government will become a blueprint for other local governments.

 

Focus will be placed on regional government and service delivery during next year. Christian business people and leaders will become unofficial advisers to local government. Those that follow their advice will prosper and lead their regions to prosperity. The counsel of these business people will gradually emerge in the Limpopo government in particular and will bring relief to the citizens. This process will not take place in all regions of the country or be widely published.

 

 

LIMPOPO

Limpopo is an important province to watch because, contrary to most people’s beliefs, it will create a pace and momentum for progress. Deep-seated innovation that has never been revealed before will come out of that province.

 

The rural economy in this province is going to develop to a great extent and have a life of its own. It is not going to be pampered by government, but stand sturdily on its own feet. Something very important is going to come out of this province in terms of government in future.

 

ESCOM

The power regulator ESCOM will be in the news a lot. People will not so easily accept the new approved higher rates. This will become a debate. Concessions will be made by the government, especially to local business in this regard.

 

SADF

In 2015 the prophecy of 2014 that a higher budget will be allocated for the military, will start to become apparent. There will be great improvements in the South African military. Government will focus on raising the military to a whole new level. National pride in the military will feature on television, with the aim to encourage young people to get involved in the military. Employment will increase in this sector of government. Conscription service to the army will be reviewed, over the next year or two, re-evaluating the possibility of compulsory military service for young men in the future.

 

SARS

SARS is adjusting its public relations image from antagonist to friend. Legislation is being considered with the aim to help businesses to be productive. A whole new model being developed to modernise the tax structure within the next five years will receive a lot of public attention.

 

 

 

 

WATER WORKS

Because of major focus by government, the national strategy on access to water on district level will bear fruit in this next year. Many more people will have access to basic levels of sanitation as was often promised.

 

NEW TECHNOLOGY

The low level employee is concerned about the strife present in top level government and how it will affect their work environment. The government is, however, reluctantly implementing a new system, at high cost that will assist the basic workers in their duties. This new system will be cost effective in the long run. It will solve many queuing problems in government facilities. At first people will assume that the system was developed by an international company. It will, in fact, be a young South African that is responsible for the new system.

 

EDUCATION

 

THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION

Despite the public outcry against the minister of education, Angie Motshekga, a system of oversight has been put in place by her to insure better accountability of the leaders in education in addressing poor performance. Schools will have to be accountable to one another. Teachers and principals will have initiatives amongst themselves to hold one another responsible and adhere to high standards. Increased controls and cooperation will take place between schools.

 

A NEW PLAN

A new education strategy will slowly be implemented, on a small scale. The strategy has already been tested in some pre-schools and will first be implemented in pre-school and grades 1 and 2. Outcomes based education has been fairly successful in some areas. More training and equipping will be on the agenda and more resources will be made available to rural schools that have been struggling.

 

There will be a greater focus on blended learning. Electronic products for education and different methods of education will be developed. Small research groups will focus on new methods like e-learning, new ways of teaching, interaction and transferring knowledge in classes. Research will first focus on further education before it will influence the traditional types of learning models of the education department.

 

Senior learners will participate in a mentoring program for younger learners, assisting in their training. Educators will listen to the suggestions of students in order to adapt the educational system to a new way of teaching and training. The young people in education will have a great influence on higher education first before it will spread to the junior levels.

 

BOOKS & RESOURCES

A new distribution system will be used to deliver books via commercial couriers to schools. Even in holiday periods the deliveries will happen. Teachers will be on duty during school holidays to coordinate book deliveries and prepare for the following year. 2015 will see a huge improvement in education and in available resources. Parents will be much more involved than before in assisting their schools with basic resources and other initiatives.

 

HOME SCHOOLS

The government is allowing home schools to continue without interference. Although there is opposition in some circles towards home schooling, any attempt at stopping it through legislation will not succeed.

 

MODEL C SCHOOLS

The old model C-schools will be under greater pressure to perform. These schools are trying to uphold the standards and will find a new way of doing the necessary. There are specialists developing a new way of teaching in model C-schools.

 

Investment Into Education

Business Involvement

A vision of a group of business people was received. These business people have taken it on themselves to make sure all the rural schools have proper toilets. In the vision they visit schools to evaluate them and determine sponsorship needs for bathrooms, toilets and shower. Teams are sent to install these facilities. Instead of waiting for the department of education to fulfil the needs of schools, private individuals will be moved by the Lord to provide for what is needed.

 

Church

Many churches will establish their own schools resulting in more involvement from businesses supporting church based schools. There will also be moral initiatives from churches going into schools. Churches will use local media and create educational, upliftment and holiday programs. Christian programs will help provide children with food over the holidays who usually received meals at school.

 

Community

Community and business will become an important factor of investments into SA schools. Education will become a focal point in the social upliftment programs. Big companies will start investing specifically in schools through their social development programs. Selected schools, especially rural schools, will be used to pilot new programs and ideas by the education department. School transport programs will be developed to ensure a better and more effective system for school children across the country; the taxi industry might get involved in this program. The health department and the education department will take hands to address issues like teen pregnancies, drug abuse etc. in schools. Health clinics will be placed in or next to public schools to assist in this program and project. University mentorship for teachers and schools will start to take place. Different departments of universities will make their lecturers available to help to further train teachers in their different subjects, especially via holiday programs for teachers.

 

Feeding Schemes

Communities will join with business and government to develop sustainable feeding programs in schools. Vegetable gardens are developed in communities to feed school children. NGOs and entrepreneurs have already pioneered this in other areas of the country, but the education department will learn from these projects and multiply them. There will be strong Christian student movements in schools in SA over the next season; these Christian student movements will become actively involved and verbal about social issues in their schools and surroundings.

 

Finances

A lot more money will be pumped into education, especially with regard to students in the process of graduating. Graduates are currently struggling to find jobs. The board of education is coming together to see how they can make provision for them in the future by educating the youth in areas where skills are needed, also with regard to providing a skills focused tertiary education.

 

There is going to be a major buy-in from government into infrastructure for schools, not only with regard to the building of new schools but also regarding the provision of equipment. Through the bulk purchasing of school equipment, schools will be upgraded and mobile laboratories will become available.

 

Sports

Popular sports like soccer will be promoted in very simple and easy ways especially in schools that did not have access to sport facilities in the past. Social programs as well as investment of sport bodies and sportsmen will create an easy way of training, educating and equipping students in sports like soccer. In areas where students do not have access to facilities like soccer fields mobile equipment will be produced, that can be used in smaller areas other than a big soccer field. This will give the opportunity for use and practice of soccer skills. Extraordinary soccer events will be held – not normal soccer field type of events. This will be a pre-cursor to train and develop students in soccer so that in future they will be able to move on to the real types of soccer tournaments and events.

 

As with soccer, cricket nets will be set up as well. There is a push, especially in junior schools, to get children to exercise. Businessmen will sponsor and manage the equipment, because previously they gave the equipment to schools and it simply disappeared. Busses and caravans will come with equipment locked inside. These caravans will be serving multiple schools.

 

LANGUAGE

Because of the large number of indigenous South African languages, the issue of which language to use in schools is being discussed. Parents will push towards the use of the English language and request that English stays a predominant language in schools although it is a new language to a many children.

 

LIBRARIES

There will be great investment taking place in libraries and in providing access to literature, even at rural schools. This access to literature and libraries includes access to the internet which will be a focus of foreign investment coming into SA. Rural children will be provided with access to literature and the internet. This will be a twofold process. Firstly physical books will be made available and secondly, digital literature via internet and e-books will be made available. Mobile libraries will go around and mobile internet and computer sites will travel around, making books available not only to schools, but also to communities. Books and material that was only available to universities ten and twenty years ago, will be easily accessed by members of the rural community. This will bring about great change in education in rural areas.

 

PRAYER FOR SCHOOLS

God’s grace is being released into the school structures in the next season. The Lord is placing His hands on the children, specifically in schools. The Lord sends out a warning that there is going to be a lot of violence. The enemy’s strategy is to release violence into the schools and the Lord is calling us to prayer and intercession for children in schools.

 

 

 

 

RAISING THE BAR

Parents will demand a better quality of educational standards .The bar will be raised, not from the top but from the bottom. The system previously lowered pass rates, which resulted in demotivating students and lowering the standard of education altogether. This will be exposed to the public resulting in demand for changes which will take place. There is a call to parents to become involved and provide solutions on how to better schools.

 

Pride will be restored in the education system over a period of time. Teachers identified as being non-committal and just plain lazy will find that their work in the education system will be cut short.

 

SOLUTIONS

A new solution is coming for Mathematics, Science and Biology teaching. A unique way of teaching will be implemented which will result in a lower dropout rate in these subjects.

 

TEACHER UNIONS

The Department of Education will take a strong stance against the teachers union’s unrealistic demands. The public will take the education departments side on this stance against the unions and put pressure on the unions and the teachers to let go of unrealistic demands and step up their performance and be the teachers they are supposed to be.

 

The political wrangling within teachers unions will come to the fore and be exposed. It is not conducive to any improvement in schools or teaching, and much will be said in the media concerning this.

 

A vacuum between the ministry and the schools are being filled. It is not a departmental structure. This structure will be suggested by the unions to advise the department and bring consensus on the implementation of the national strategy. The national strategy is correct but there are problems with implementation. The ministry will receive the support that it currently lacks.

TECHNOLOGY

A vision was seen of somebody bringing a presentation to the education department for solar energy in the schools, providing in needs like lighting, heating and internet access. Solar panels were seen on the roofs of schools. The department of education is listening and realising the value of this. It will not be an expensive system. This solar project needs the backing of the government for it to realise.

 

Education will be the measuring stick for solar power usefulness in the public sector. Places with school-going children or students will be preferred for the provision of solar power.

 

Cell phone towers will be erected on school premises to provide access to wireless internet for schools as well as for the community. There will be some controversy regarding that in some communities concerning the effect of wireless transmissions on children’s brains and development.

 

MINING

 

Mining will be less dominant but take on its rightful place within the economy. It’s volume contribution will not decrease but it’s role will be more sober. Much restructuring will take place with the strategy to cut the mining cake into smaller, diversified units. There is a huge opportunity for contractors, both old and new, to service these mining areas. There will be less bulk employment by an entity – employment will be spread over a number of contracting entities in a bid to minimise the effect of strikes shutting down the entire mine. The unions are at present clambering for their survival as their power-base is being eroded. Their relevance and credibility will be increasingly questioned. Financial mismanagement issues are going to come to the fore.

 

Mining industries (specially the platinum mines) will expand in the next year. Many new stakeholders – not only the mines, government and unions, but a lot of different people – will get involved in mining. Even the suppliers to mines will become more involved in conversation around mining.

 

CHINESE MINING

People are worried about China being involved in South Africa’s mining industry. China is perceived as a threat in mining. God says they will not be a threat. If there is any involvement from China it will be controlled. The advisory companies in the mining industry will continue to grow. They went through a difficult season, but things will turn around and they will start to grow again.

 

MINING AND THE CHURCH

Churches and church leaders will get involved in mines incidents. Community prayer meetings will start up. There will be a call in the mining community to turn to God, to pray and for peace to prevail. A head-on collision between the needs of the people versus the spirit of greed of leadership and people in political positions will play itself out in the media and public domain. This will bring a change and a turn in the mining union member’s perception of what the unions’ role and function is supposed to be. Government will have to step into the process to regulate the union space and prevent union monopolies in the future. Smaller unions will come to the fore that in future will become stronger. These smaller unions will be run by the younger generation.

 

At first it will seem as if they are incapable of fulfilling their mandate but, as time progress, they will make wise decisions and serve the people instead of succumbing to greed. These unions will have a positive effect on South Africa.

 

MOVING AND SHAKING

There has been an overemphasis on one or two mines, including Anglo American although there are other companies that also have a lot of authority in the mining sector. Many mines are closing under false pretences mere to open up new mines elsewhere. Thus the company overheads and income will not change. These closures are used to write off profits and benefit from tax write-offs. Some of the companies want to leave SA but they have been persuaded to stay.

Increased automation will occur in the mining sector. There will be a stronger focus on re-evaluating processes to make them more streamlined.

 

MOVING INTO AFRICA

South African’s knowledgeable mining people will start to go elsewhere. God is going to sow expertise and people into Africa, establishing new mining training institutions. South Africans will lead the way.

 

NEW DISCOVERIES

New mineral discoveries will take place in the more remote areas of SA, especially in the Northern Cape and Eastern Cape in the next 5 to 10 years. New towns will develop in these areas because of these discoveries. Areas that did not seem to be economically active before will become extremely active due to these new discoveries. The discoveries will open up a whole new era regarding specific mineral and resource deposits found in SA. The rest of the world was previously completely unaware of these mineral deposits. The new developments will introduce a whole new spectrum of mining that has not been practised in SA to any great extent before. The world’s attention will be on these new rich fields in SA. It seems that a lot of international companies wish to leave SA, but secretly many of them are discovering new mineral and resource possibilities in SA. These international companies are secretly planning to increase their activities in SA. Thus the mining industry will see positive development in SA in the future. There will be a few years of uncertainty. Many of these international companies will make use of this uncertainty to discourage the general population and other companies to become involved with the aim to lead them into letting their resources go and to let go of their involvement in SA, so that the international companies can pick it up in secret.

 

There are great reserves of oil in the country. Oil mining will start and over time many people will be employed for the mining of oil. Better packages will be provided for the miners and workers will be happier.

 

Another big diamond will be discovered. This event will be covered by a lot of press and will draw attention to SA. This diamond will be sold abroad.

 

OCEAN MINING

Much will be said about mining in South African oceans in the next season to come. The public will become more aware of the potential of resources in the ocean. Overseas companies will become more involved in ocean mining ventures in SA. This arena was unknown for a long time to the public and general population of SA. South Africans will become more aware of ocean mining. The borders of SA do not stop at the shoreline but extend into the ocean where there are a lot of resources to be found.

 

REGULATION

A certain degree of discontent will arise regarding government regulations towards mining and mining companies in SA. At the same time there will be new legislation that will make certain mining ventures possible and much easier than in the past. Currently many people are leaving SA to mine somewhere else. But gradually people working in the mining industry that left SA will return for good job opportunities in the local mining industry and bring the expertise and the understanding and wisdom that they have learned while they were abroad back into SA. While many international companies will be functioning in SA in the mining industry, in the future many of the top positions will be taken up by South Africans.

 

With the purchase of mines the government will try to step into the process. Quite a few mines that belonged to big companies will be sold off and other companies will buy these mines. In this buying process the government will get involved and regulate some of the requirements. This will partly be done because government will try to prevent situations like the Marikana incident. There will be regulations on protracted strikes against mining companies, profit sharing and how mining companies treat their workers.

 

SAFETY

There will be a lot of problems with illegal miners. We saw a warning against the collapse of a mine in the Barberton area where a lot of lives may be lost. Please pray that God will warn the people before this happens. The government is going to take stronger and stricter measures and will close off certain areas. These mines had been abandoned. Fences are gone and the holes are open, therefore unauthorised people were able to get in. The entrances are going to be covered up effectively so that the illegal miners will not be able to go in, thus averting a crisis that would have received international attention. It is believed that the ones doing the illegal mining are doing so to alleviate poverty, but it is actually greed driving them.

 

Stricter measures by government will be implemented, which will naturally cost more money. This is going to cause mines to close down, or try to close down, because of financial issues. Some of them will try to bypass these stricter measures. To do that will cause a lot of damage.

 

A vision of a tremor was seen causing an underground collapse. This seemed to happen at night without a lot of injuries.

 

UNIONS

A concerted effort will be made to level the playing fields in terms of labour. The mining industry will put its foot down against legislation and the unions. They will even threaten the closure of their mines if their offer in negotiations is not accepted. This will force legislation to become more conducive towards mining in SA. The fights amongst unions themselves will become a major problem this year. There will be many deaths because of this conflict.

 

There is going to be a great shake up and scandal in the leadership of mining unions. It will be a shock to the nation and even union members will be shocked about what is going on. There will be a huge spiritual involvement in the unions, with a clash involving witchcraft. Please pray against the forces of witchcraft, superstition and manipulation in this regard.

 

WARNING

The Lord is saying there are too many women venturing into the mining industry, which is going to crush them. The Lord is advising women to stay away from this field because it is tough and the negotiators are tough. It is changing the whole makeup of women who choose to get involved. It is a field that women should generally avoid and stay away from.

 

Too many towns have focussed on mining. They need to diversify, and allow other industries and factories to come in. Allowing diversity to come into mining towns provides alternative means of income for a community in times of trouble at the mines, preventing the shutdown of whole towns.

 

AGRICULTURE:

The word received over agriculture is: lifestyle. This has far more to do with an emotive connection than an economic one. Innovation will come from the deep, distant, difficult to reach rural areas. Due to this emotive connection the popularity of farms will increase dramatically, which will open up a lot of other business opportunities that were not seen as linked to farming previously. Affluent people will be buying farms, even though it does not seem to make any economic or political sense. These people’s presence will affect the areas surrounding them.

 

Opportunities will be created, not only in eco-tourism, but also in “lifestyle” tourism on running farms. There will be a new desire by farmers to open their farms to outsiders due to this interest in understanding and experiencing farms. Farmers, who traditionally would not consider the option, will have the desire to expose more people to what they are doing on their farms. This will have a settling effect on the agricultural market. Farming will transform into a lifestyle economy despite the predictions of doomsayers.

 

FAMILY FARMS

A Vision was seen of a father, son and grandson on the same farm who have put many years into the farm because of their love of the land. The Lord wants people to love the land because then they will love the country – God is going to bless these family farms.

 

A HERITAGE LABEL

A heritage label will be added to farming as a lifestyle. This will not be driven by government but by the public. There will be a desire to preserve this in as many forms as possible and it will cause an influx of capital from the business sector.

 

LAND CLAIMS

Farmers have been coming together for discussions because they don’t know the way forward. The future is vague and they are insecure.

“GOD SAID 2014” – SECTION D- NORTH AMERICA


2014-b

SECTION D- NORTH AMERICA

NORTH AMERICA

 A vision was seen of light houses popping up right across north America and the people rising up against the lies that the enemy has placed them under. There is a freedom of Christianity that is starting to move and an old value system that is being re-installed.

A vision was seen of North America standing vertically and the anointing oil dripping down from Canada down to America and I feel it is like a healing anointing and healing revival that is going deep and healing wounds that are not easy to heal like cancers and other diseases that resist. A very deep and solid healing anointing is going to flow freely.

ECONOMY

In the foreseeable future the economy of North America will still be the biggest economy in the world. There will be much clambering for all kinds of other markets for the fear of this economy toppling, but that too will subside. People are going to concentrate more on what they have to fix at local levels. The entire economy is going to be very vibrant and retrace its confidence in the next year or two.

NORTH AMERICAN NATIONS

CANADA

 A Return to Christ

There has been a major turn away from Christianity over the last ten years in Canada but there will be a specific event taking place like a public mockery of Christ and Christianity which will result in the hearts of the people turning back to the Lord.

Statistics show that in Canada most Christians don’t attend church anymore, but that there will be a return of the hearts of the people back to the Lord. Catholicism has been the strongest faith group in the nation which will start to change. The Lord is drawing people to know Him and not know religion but know Christ.

Economy

Economic difficulties will cause the nation to struggle a bit. New developments in the area of medical research will have a great impact on the economy.

Intercession

The Lord is raising up an intercessory movement. Intercessory groups will start to rise from small churches. It will become the heart of small churches to stand up and pray for the nation.

Heavy Snow

The Lord is warning the nation of Canada against a harsh winter and to be prepared for record levels of snow.

USA

Obamacare

A vision was seen of the statue of an angel in Central Park, New York. In the vision the statue breaks open and out of the statue comes a real angel. But the real angel that was inside the statue does not look like the angel on the outside. It is the angel of America. The angel was captured in a pre-conceived mould of people’s mindsets: what they think the angel is suppose to be. God is releasing the angel of America to be revealed for who he really is. The angel then rises up into the heavenly realm. He receives his orders from God and starts moving on His command.

Historical information concerning this statue:

According to Wikipedia, the bronze, eight-foot statue, also called the Angel of the Waters in Central Park, New York, depicts a female winged angel touching down upon the top of a fountain. It was designed by Emma Stebbins and unveiled in 1873. This was the only statue in the park called for in the original design. Beneath the angel are four four-foot cherubs representing Temperance, Purity, Health, and Peace. The statue refers to the Gospel of John, Chapter 5 where there is a description of an angel blessing the Pool of Bethesda, giving it healing powers. In 1842 aqueduct terminated in Central Park from where the water was distributed from a reservoir to the Croton Aqueduct opened, providing the city for the first time with a dependable supply of pure water. The city: thus the angel carries a lily in one hand, representing purity, and with the other hand she blesses the water below.

The vision speaks of God wanting to bless America with His hand of health, peace and purity. But the nation of America is moving away from what God wants to give and digging their own wells of supply through such endeavors as the controversial “Obamacare” legislation.

During the next couple of months this controversial healthcare law will cause much difficulty in the American nation. It will seem to get very dark all over America, but the light (of true believers shining) will be revealed in this darkness. The media will show a blatant disregard for the Godly and good during this time. A lot of frustration and hopelessness can creep in because of the darkness that will be seen, but at the same time God will bring hope as the light will get much brighter than it has been. God will provide a way out of this crisis but much intercession will be needed.

 Economy

In the USA there is a lot of negative prophetic typology, not recognizing their privilege and forgetting to look at the detail of their progress because of their connection to the Lord. I feel America is still in a good place and the doomsday utterances are not going to come about. There is a fiber in the American people that will not allow certain of the things to come about that they are so fearful about and I feel the government will be under increasing pressure to line up with what the American people really want. They want an ethical, moral, solid, functioning, workable government that functions according to Christian ethics. The north and north-eastern parts of America are known to be more liberal but conservatism will come to those areas. What they will call conservatism is really a gospel related move. There will be a huge amount of growth which is already taking place, but there is going to be a shift in the psyche and thinking of the American people and they are going to return to the spirit of their constitution which is based on very godly principles.

New York: Wall Street. There has been a sifting of the rules and the legislation of the Stock Exchange. Also a sifting out of the people/companies that have listed their companies that are not authentic and have illegally plumped up their profits and losses. Some names are being scratched off the board and new names will be added. This is like a revival on Wall Street that is going to filter down to the economy. This will revive businesses and the economy in the whole of America. Big companies coming in will list themselves and prosper. There are prayer warriors walking around the buildings on Wall Street. They are walking up and down. They are walking up and down Wall Street, around the block and speaking life into Wall Street. It has been proclaimed in the spirit and we will see these manifestations in the natural.

There will be many young start-ups. The Lord still wants to father the entrepreneurs but because of the fathers actually exploiting the young entrepreneurs (because of their lack of experience), many young men and women would not be open for input.

Because of this, a slower release of high caliber new technologies and design will be seen except where fatherhood is done right or has been restored. A quicker release will come again. Big innovation in many areas will come, but to bring it to production and get it market ready, will take a few years.

A Warning to the prophets

God is warning the prophetic voice in America not to look at money. God is saying He wants the prophetic voice in America to turn their hearts and their minds and their beings to God, hearing the voice of God clearly. The Lord is giving many warnings to the nations through the American prophetic voice. There are a lot of things been planned against America and many of those plans will be cut off because of the prophets listening and interceding. There are lots of warnings that have to go out from them and in order to do that; they need to be separate from government and separate from any financial influence. They must speak what God is saying. If the prophetic voice is entangled in government in some way or another, God is warning them to get out of there in order to be able to speak. It is important not to be “entangled” with anything on the inside, because God is going to create a new thing through the prophetic in America.

The prophetic ministry in America is going to speak into the economy; God is going to bless businesses people and raise up prophets in the business area in America. Business is going to start to function in a totally different way. That is part of the reason why the prophetic ministry should not focus on money, so that they are able to discern God’s will in the business area. Prophets can and will be involved with business, but it must not be their sole focus, otherwise it will not work. The prophetic voice will have an influence on Wall Street. Some people at Wall Street are prophets. God placed them there and through their prophetic words and actions Wall Street will be changed “from the inside”.

A vision was seen of national prophetic and Christian leaders starting to come together and creating a national forum giving credibility but also speaking to the hearts of the nation. Many of the prophetic words released over the nation have been laying there as potential and must be taken in. The Lord is calling leaders to stand together and declare those words but also encourage the nation. The nation is discouraged and the Lord wants to encourage them to put their trust in Him.

Intercessors

The Lord wants to honor a really strong group of the intercessory movement within the United States of America. He wants to start bringing it into the public arena, even though they are quite prepared to keep working behind closed doors without recognition. This is not a small movement – but thousands upon thousands of people in America. They tap into what the Lord wants and speak those words of life. This is not done just for their own nation but for all the nations around the world. They really endeavor to hear the Lords voice and to speak exactly as He says into those revealed areas. I see those things are going to start manifesting a lot faster than they ever thought it would. The Lord is honoring prayers over decades, not just prayers of several years, prayers that this goodness of the Lord will flood the earth. They have been pushing into the spirit about the goodness of God. The Lord wants to honor them for the really good, hidden work and to motivate them.

Areas of Revival

The Bible belt is going to change. It was always the southern part of America. God has earmarked another area that is going to become very powerful in the Spirit. There is going to be a mini revival in this new area. It is a long straight stretch of cities and towns. The whole area will become the “new” Bible belt. People will come from other nations to see what God is doing there. It is something different. It will not be the same as past revivals. Not a Spirit revival but a revival of the Word, the Bible. People will learn to speak and quote scripture. Something very unique is going to happen that has never been before. This will be a real revival of the Word. There will be Bible schools that are going to start teaching the word. Church leaders have run away from the Bible school element of church and they will once again go back to having Bible Schools.

A reviving movement is going to start on the west coast of America. There is a blessing of God over this area because of so many foreigners having been received there and getting their revelation and training and equipping from God through various ministries. Not just foreigners will be blessed by this move but the unsaved and lost in the cities and areas will be moved by a touch from God stretching from California to Washington State. This will be an area of Gods great light.

NASA

In 2014 there will be a renewed focus on space and NASA. NASA and the space program will be a lot in the news.

The Current Presidency

The American Presidency will be continually humiliated in the next couple of months. Although there will be an active program to lift Barak Obama’s image through media programs like Oprah, character flaws will have a crippling effect on decision making in the nation.

Barack Obama will retain a lot of support but the dissatisfaction amongst the people will increase. Negative publicity against Obama will increase. A lot of eyes are already looking past Barack Obama’s tenure. There is a leadership void and seemingly no suitable person to take up the baton after Obama. This void will persist in the people’s minds for the next two years. People will start looking at alternative ideas in decision making and leadership and the power invested into leaders. This period of void is to be a wakeup call for Christians to stand up and start praying for the new leader to be found.

 Don’t wait for the election time to start praying for a new leader. Pray now.

 Christian Media

The Christian media is like a knife cutting through the nation and touching areas which have previously not been touched, specifically abortions and abortion clinics. Through media hard hearts will become open to the gospel.

Medical

 There will be breakthroughs in the medical field especially in the area of heart research. Integrity will return in the medical community where doctors are placing boundaries on what they are willing to allow in the operating theater. There are policies on what is seen as necessary and unnecessary being written and this will lead to great change in the near future.

Racial Tension

There will be pockets of racial conflicts arising which will cause instability inside the US at a point it will become a major difficulty to handle.

Terrorism

Before 9/11 a specific vision of an angel of death passing the USA was seen, a similar vision was seen again. The Lord is warning the American people against another 9/11, specific prayer and intercession is crucial and will be needed to bind the strategies of satan against the people of the USA. There are some terrorist threats which are not being taken seriously. Pray that the authorities will take them serious before it is too late. There is a serious onslaught that is coming and the nation has to be proactive in resisting it, through proactive prayer, proactive measures, it is not like something that has happened before. The Lord is specifically warning the US in that regard.

 Immigration

 Illegal Immigration is a big threat to the USA. There will be laws and legislation being placed around America, like a belt, encircling them and tightening up the borders and stopping the influx of people who come and take the resources that are there. The American people are an extremely generous people, willing to give and share and because of that they have been taken advantage of. Now they are closing the doors on those who have taken advantage of them. There will be a paper drawn and when that paper stamped with a seal it will be effective in stopping the influx and stealing of resources. Many visitors are not grateful and do not leave a good footprint. They come in to take and to steal. Because of the generosity of the Americans hearts the Lord does not want that for them. There is still a very large Christian population that trusts the Lord for a turnabout. God has heard their cry. More of them are for God than those who are against God and because of that He has heard their cry and is going to bring a turnabout.

Alaska

 New discoveries will be made in terms of resources in Alaska. Specific discoveries will draw attention from the US. This state will experience s wide range of environmental and climate changes, changes in the seasons of winter and summer, changes in the environment which will affect agriculture, and they will need help.

A vision of new church buildings was seen; the Lord is sending ministries; new areas will be taken in by the gospel.

The tourism industry will be rapidly increasing in this region and the true value of this state will become known across the USA.

Hawaii

God’s Spirit is hovering over the island; He is waiting to move over that state. The Lord is warning the people of Hawaii to move away from their idolatry. A vision was seen of crops being trimmed- the Lord is pruning this nation.

“GOD SAID 2014” -SECTION B- SOUTH AFRICA


2014-b

SECTION B- SOUTH AFRICA

AGRICULTURE

 Agriculture will play a low-key role and there are certain strategic reasons for that. The Lord is putting a low-key plan in place and he is using a number of individuals jointly to start doing that. He is also using our farming skills and expertise in other nations in Africa. The national agricultural strategists will find this alarming. They are not sure how we are going to provide for food security in the nation. The Lord has a greater plan for South Africa in the long run in terms of the development in the other nations, so we mustn’t be alarmed by it. We must allow what the Lord is doing so that He can ensure a basket and a security for a greater area. The strategy is much greater than South Africa, and much greater regional area like SADC is to be impacted. We will not be able to impact here in SA as much as we will do across the borders. This will finally flow back into much greater food security for the entire region.

There are going to be entree level programs being developed in order to attend to the physical ground that has been neglected. These programs will be implemented in other African countries as well. There will be a five year program of this entree level programs being implemented in Zimbabwe in future

Land Claims

The Lord is putting His finger on agriculture in South Africa and is addressing the whole land claim issue which has been lingering and is actually harming the nation. After the next election the Lord is bringing closure because it is keeping the nation from fulfilling its mandate. There are people involved who just want to keep the land claim issue open and the Lord is moving people who are actually standing in the way of finishing it up. This issue will be closing.

BUSINESS, TRADE & INDUSTRY

 There has been lot of pressure on businesses to survive. The next year will be a breathing gap; there will be a release of the financial pressure that has driven businesses to the bone as the Lord is giving them grace. God helping businesses to catch their breath and although the year will not be soaring in profits they will go through it unharmed.

People specializing in their respective fields will have gain a new sense of pride, so much so that the business sector will start asking advice from government leaders – tapping into their expertise. Many in the business sector have fallen behind in their expertise since there was an expectation that government will not make it due to BEE. Since many in these BEE positions have had to work hard to make it all work, they have actually grown and sharpened their abilities. I see that in business word many have to stop slacking off and start actively sharpen their tools again.

  New Ideas

 There is a reservoir in heaven full of ideas for those who want to come and get it. God is bringing about new opportunities. At first there will not be an experiential framework to show how one should deal with these new opportunities. When these new opportunities come God will provide the inspiration, creativity and answers.

Building industry

 The Building industry will have difficult times ahead. After finishing a job people will be laying down their tools and not be sure what the next job will be.

Mining

Mining will have another difficult time in South Africa. There needs to be a focus on investing into workers conditions. There is an unhealthy dependence on many of the mines from the extended families of mine workers. Because of the difficulties the mines are facing, many families of mine workers will have to let go of their dependence on the mine workers and find jobs for themselves. Housing improvements will start to happen in 2014 for mineworkers as well as infrastructure around compounds of mine workers. Government will have positive partnerships with mines in helping with this development.

The Banking Industry

 The Banking industry will have a positive year in 2014. Debt will however have to be addressed amongst the public. People will struggle with their high debt and there will be many that will not be able to pay their debt in 2014. A drive to motivate South Africans to save money will get traction.

ECONOMY

The economy, like last year, is going to stay on a very stable course; there won’t be any fiddling with it. The general direction is going stay the same. Equality and leveling off between the different people groups within the nation will increasingly become more visible. Excesses will be addressed in all groups and all people. That means that some people will have to prepare themselves for tightening of their belts, whilst the lower income groups and poor will receive marginally more. Some initiative is going to come into the unemployed sector, helping to remedy the unemployment situation. The percentages will not be huge but at least it is being addressed. This situation has deteriorated but now there is going to be forward motion through practical intervention. It will speak to the heart of the nation and over time bring a quietness and stillness into the nation. Economically there will be lot of opportunity – but the opportunities need to be broader based. There will be a lot more cooperative movement. The economy is not going to funnel to the individual as easily as in the past, yet it will still flow into areas of joint cooperation in terms of finances and skills. Lone rangers will have an increasingly difficult time and will have to learn to share their wealth and expertise resulting in greater equality and much greater reward.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING

 There will not be in increase or explosion of human trafficking but there is a raise in female prostitution. Women will knowingly going into the sex trade, motivated by poverty as they need money for their children. The surrounding nations are letting them leave, knowingly and willingly. These countries they come from have no social grant. Pray that poverty is addressed in the neighbouring nations so that the women don’t have to take these steps to look after their children.

GOVERNMENT
Election 2014

Next years’ election will have some surprises in store for people but I believe there will not be a major government change. There are new faces coming in and with the new faces there are new changes as well, for the better. Thabo Mbeki’s face is quite prominent behind the scenes and things are happening because of his influence.

There have been many pacts made between different Government parties and different people and also with the unions. There comes a time of regretting these pacts because people and parties are now stuck with what was said. They are almost trapped in the unlawful covenants they made.  Now is the time where they will be drawing a line in the sand saying: Change must come, we cannot walk together anymore. This will happen during the next year, probably just before the election. There is going to be a blow up and some things are going to be uncovered. It will be splashed on the front pages of the papers. People will see the face of the person and gasp for air because it is such a shock. We do not expect that person to be busy with this kind of deal. What happens in the dark will be uncovered and God is going to shout it from the rooftops.

Some provinces in South Africa will shine in 2014. There is coming a change for the better in Limpopo province and a project to rebuild what was torn down the past few years will take effect. Kwa-Zulu Natal will become a hotspot again before the 2014 elections. There will be a lot of tension and violence with a lot of accusations between political parties. The North West province will explode with scandals of corruption and waste of money and power play, similar to that of Limpopo two years ago. The turnaround will go much smoother than it has been in Limpopo and many responsible for crime and corruption will be relieved of their duties, many heads will roll. The ANC will show itself merciless against some of its members. A lot of propaganda will fly around before the elections. The people will however not make their choices according to the propaganda. They are looking at it and listening to the propaganda and they get motivated by it, but the motivation quickly subsides, and their driving factor will be the feeling they have about their daily lives.

A warning

There will be some conspiring during the elections. A vision was seen of different tick boxes on the voting forms, but in the background, they are actually connected somehow and are an attempt to fool the public.

With the election there will also be a women’s movement, women will be taking more prominent places in government.

 A New Leader

A woman will rise up in the Eastern Cape, energetic like Helen Zille and she is going to shape up the whole Eastern Cape. She will become the Premier and bring changes and tighten things up. It is a very big ship to turn, so it will only turn slowly. When we see this woman elected, we must be positive and supportive in prayer because she is going to be very radical and not favored by everybody. She will be aggressive like Malema and aggravate everyone, get under everyone’s skin but she is going to get the job done.

After the Election

After the election the government will start pushing South Africa to make the amount of provinces less. There is a change coming in our whole provincial situation and the government will try to consolidate. This will create a lot of retaliation in the hearts of the people who will feel they are forced into groupings they do not like. It is important that change be embraced; the Lord is actually addressing some mismanagement of funds this way. We must not throw the whole thing out. It is maybe not acceptable from the beginning but we must stay open to receive what God actually wants to do. There is change necessary in the way provinces are managed, but it is how it is done that is the issue.

Window Dressing Ends

South Africa is tapering towards the end of a period of window dressing by the government. In 2014 a phase will be entered whereby things will be less sinister. We will not have to ask what the ulterior motives are. The motive behind reducing the number of provinces will not be a sinister motive to gain votes; it will be a very practical thing. We should caution the citizens not to prematurely bad mouth things that are happening, but to firstly discern what the Lord is doing. Following the next election there will be an increase in people who have Godly motives in government. Some of them are current political figures, but a number of them, apparently a slightly younger generation, are waiting in the wings; it. It is a very slow start to a restorative process in our nation, but that does not mean that we must hold back from the mandates the Lord has given this nation in terms of Africa. There is a lot more going on behind the scenes than anybody thinks and a lot of good, much more strategic planning and much more inclusiveness, is happening.

Education

The Department of Education will be under scrutiny. There will be pressure to deliver on what was promised and fix the problems of the past years. Improvements in the educational results and statistics will start taking place from the lower grades upwards. Social issues in schools such as teen pregnancy, child abuse, violence and drugs will be in the news in 2014. There is an educational fraternity that has a heart to see the South Africa’s educational standards bettered and even placed on international standards from grade 1 up to post graduate qualifications. 2014 will be the year of ideation (the process of creating new ideas) and strategic development to give this fraternity the power and capacity to effect the change.

There will be a new breed of inspectors: Inspectors were stopped from going into schools to do check-ups but a new group is being brought in to inspect the schools. They are not going to be well received. They will be stoned and chased. The school gates will be locked. The pressure from the Education Department is going to get the breakthrough because of the need for schools to be inspected and overseen. Many people who should be out inspecting are sitting behind desks trying to just make phone calls and send e-mails. They are going to get out from behind their desks and have a visual look at what they should be inspecting. They are going to be given an increase in their salaries, risk money for what they do. That will make them field inspectors which are not going to be a popular job but it is going to be worthwhile and necessary.

There is a change coming in terms of the minister of education, after the election she will be redeployed to another department. The system has lost hope and the teachers have lost hope but the Lord is bringing in someone that will be able to lead and inspire. The people of our nation lost hope in the education system. We saw a vision of the Lord standing and blowing like a mighty wind over sails of ships which are all down. As He blows over them the sails are full, significant of new motivation that will arise and teachers being encouraged. They will receive new hope and will move forward again.

A vision was seen of many churches starting schools. Many of the smaller churches in the rural communities will also be starting schools.

Unions

Clashes between the unions and the government will become more severe and corrective legislation will be brought in. Labor costs and disagreements are spiraling a bit out of control so that in the coming year we are going to experience a boiling point where the strikes between the government and unions will become excessive. This will leave the Government with no other option but to take decisive action and intervene.

 

Unions are painting themselves into a corner with the decisions they have made. Because of their unwise past decisions they will lose favor with government and their members. This will lessen the union power considerably. There will be a lot of wheeling and dealing to try and get power back, but the union model is growing old and is losing its substance.

A new modern union will take form and it will be started by the younger generation. This new union will be strong although it will be small in the beginning. It will grow very big in the next ten years. This new union will open the gates for new modern unions to appear in the future. They are going to be totally different from the present unions: their branding, the way they carry themselves, the way they handle negotiations. They will make the old unions look like they are archaic.

Eskom

Next year ESKOM will draw a lot of focus and attention in the media again, not so much with the price hike but they will not be able to supply the electricity that is necessary.

Intercession

There are sticky areas in government that people previously couldn’t do anything about; these will be influenced by intercession similar to people walking around Jericho and walls tumbling down. Some of the areas in government will crumble and tumble down because of the intercession of people. Churches will also intercede through worship, which will influence those sticky areas in government.

Transparency

God is moving many things about in government departments; He will bring a split in certain departments so that more will get done. Now there will be two groups bringing about change and not just one. Where government wants to find new levels of favor with the people, there are new levels of transparency that need to be worked at. This will bring forth a new sense of patriotism which will bring solutions to the table for issues such as toll gate fees.

Police

Regarding the police a vision was seen of the stripes on their uniforms being stripped off and the police members sticking together. The Chief the police is slamming her hands on the table and saying this is enough. The police force will be cleaned up, there is a lot of corruption happening that has to stop.

Social Grant

The government social grant given to low income families will be revised. This will have a huge effect on the social care and Social Development department in South Africa; especially in regards to teen pregnancies and those depending on the grant.

Conservation

The government will be appointing a lot of new game rangers including people who were involved in the past getting involved again. There was some training that was done in the past and not used. It was put aside because white people were involved. The program will be embraced and used and become very effective. This approach is not a new program but rather embracing what already exists. The right people are sitting on the side line and waiting and the Lord is saying: Get involved! I have given in your heart a strategy. You have worked with this before and now it will be revamped.

TRANSPORT

 Electric cars

There is a breakthrough coming in the whole fuel cell industry. At the moment it is not quite there yet, but there is momentum coming that will push it forward so that electric cars can move. The industry will be moving even beyond fuel cells.

Electric cars will come onto the market. There are a few around and the inventor of this electric car has made one that will work well in South Africa. There was a development called the Jewel electric car in South Africa that had everybody very excited. It started with a prototype and the company wanted investors. In a news article in the newspaper on 8 August 2012 it said this project was mothballed because it couldn’t get investors and because of various other problems. This was the potential of an electric car built in South Africa, creating a lot of jobs and with the potential of being very successful the international market. This is going to start up again and become successful. It is part of the plan that God has in this economy for South Africa.

Railway

Railway lines are going to be revamped with new carriages coming. Trains will be transporting people a lot more. This will be implemented quicker than a five year plan or a ten year plan. That is too far away, transport needs to be addressed now.

Attention is going to be placed on the railway system in South Africa next year. Great investments will happen. A new company or new brand will be created, that will be government supported and fulfill the need for rail transport specifically for goods. A new rail industry will be created for South Africa that will create a lot of new jobs. This new rail industry includes building of trains, maintenance, etc. that will create many new jobs. Great plans for the transport of people will also start developing in 2014, especially with railways systems to places like Durban, Cape Town.

A private company is going to be allowed to launch a railway line. There will be a stop at each country bordering South Africa. This way they will go to Botswana and just inside the border they will have a station. The train will just go into Mozambique and have a station there. Also, up to Zimbabwe and have a station there. That is how Africa is going to be opened up to trade, with these railway lines and the people traffic going first. There is going to be a semi-privatization to the railway system which will give it a new drive.

 RESEARCH

Research funders are re-evaluating their funding models. There is a real understanding of how important it is for this nation, so funds will be reallocated to this area and in a sense this will be an area of prosperity. Basic research and even applied research will have far more money available.

Research into gas driven vehicles– all the technology is in place for this research. There should be caution in using this technology because of misuse and abuse. Methods are being put in place to thoroughly protect this technology.

Pollution- New solutions will be found with regard to sound pollution in air travel. New ways of air travel are coming up. It is almost like a hot air balloon, but with an engine. It is something weird that people will be able to use to travel with from city to city and from suburb to suburb. It is something totally different from to the norm. It will be applicable to short distances, not long distances.

Specific research will come to the foreground in dealing effectively with garbage like rubbish dumps. This will be used to generate electricity in a viable way. It will start to be implemented on a small scale as a test first and then it will be implemented largely around South Africa.

Warnings

In the middle of South Africa, in parts of the Karoo, up towards the Free State, there is a group of farmers meeting together. They are planning something that is not good. The farmers are saying “we will shoot, we will look after ourselves”. That it is not a God-made plan, it is a man made plan and it will be a disaster.

There is a prominent African leader housed in SA now. He is not in his own country presently but in South Africa. He will end up in a wheelchair because of disobedience. He has been warned but he is stubborn, so he is going to end up in a wheelchair, as an example to himself and others that he did not listen to the warning.

In 2014 there will be many quite severe storms even in South Africa, storms that we are not used to. Especially people in the Free State will experience severe storms. Horrible winds like gushes of wind.
