Fasting for a Nation – PART 2

Gateway News: Join the Fast Episode 2

As we continue to prepare personally, preparing our families, our church’s, our business’s and our communities for this fast, we examine the powerful impact and shift that took place through the prophet Daniel as he fasted.

DANIEL 10:11-13 is one of our foundation scriptures for the 21 day fast.

Daniel found himself in a situation where there was escalating war taking place in the heavens over Jerusalem and its people. The principalities over Israel operating through Nebucadnezzar were controling and directing national policies against the Jews.  The Jews were being driven from their land and their city, Jerusalem.

This scenario is not unlike what is taking place within the borders of South Africa.  The balance of power, lies in the Church to shift Gods agenda For this shifting to take place we need an understanding of the times and seasons and the plans, the purpose and destiny for our South Africa.

God is the one that governs history, but Daniel had to pray.  God heard Daniels prayer early into his fast.  The breakthrough to his prayer is only released on the twenty first day of  the fast.  Why was the answer delayed?  Heavens angelic hosts had to dislodge the reigning principalities and powers controlling the political sphere of that day. Angels had to be moved into strategic alignment so as to  BREAK the BONDS of WICKEDNESS!:

Isaiah58:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness
[a] will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.

God is shifting the times and seasons in our nation. He is about to shift into power those Davidic leaders He has aligned for South Africa’s destiny.

The answer for a change in Israel’s destiny and purpose lay in the twenty one days of prayer and fasting.  God is about to rewrite South Africa’s history, transitioning us into a future of hope and peace, for all the inhabitants of this nation.

All of heaven’s forces are being assigned for a heavenly revolution, replacing this present revolutionary rhetoric which is being spewed out over our nation.  A heavenly revolution where – no murder, no protests, no hatred takes place, but a liberation of South Africa orchestrated by God Himself.

South Africa will  be rescued from a culture of witchcraft resulting in opression, rescued  from a culture of murder, poverty and false religion.

God is about to raise up His Davids, the leaders He has chosen to take South Africa forward into a new dispensation.  God Bless you as you prepare your heart for this 21 day fast.
