I know that it is somewhat unusual for me to post this, especially at this time. I've already published something for today, and had something else in mind for what I wanted to write for tomorrow (still trying to get to the movie reviews)...I don't even know Chad Taylor, and I don't know why I'm on his e-mail newsletter list...maybe through Doug Fortune or Kelley Varner...anyway, I usually don't pay that much attention to prophetic newsletters because they generally are from people who are not on the page with me about reconciliation, and typically are too devil-conscious for my tastes.
But I found this picture of God holding Africa the other night and saved it for some reason...I thought it was because I'm going to Uganda in September and just had Africa on the brain...but today this e-mail came to me with this prophecy, and it caught my attention because of what I had just taught about Jacob and Esau (even though it's talking about something other than what I taught)...don't know why, just want to share it...(I've even added the song Africa by Toto to the songlist...I love Toto, and the lyrics to the song have a deeper meaning for me than what is obvious)...
AFRICA WILL BECOME A STOREHOUSE TO THE NATIONS
Mar 17, 2008
"Africa will become a Storehouse to the Nations--the Army and the Wealth of Esau is Coming Back"
Below is a prophecy Chad Taylor spoke over Africa, given on February 17, 2008 at Victory Christian Fellowship in Fresno, California:
Africa, mighty nation of kings and princes, the Lord says to Africa, "Rachel, weep no more. Your children are coming back to their borders, and every anointing that was forfeited, sold and stolen on every foreign seashore will return to your continent a hundred fold in this lifetime and the life to come. For I see Esau coming back to Jacob; I see the army of Esau and all of his lambs and sheep. I see the wealth of Esau coming back to Jacob. I see the Queen of Sheba coming unto Solomon. I see the wealth of the wicked returning; returning to the shores of Africa. And you will rebuild the old waste places and the cities that have been ashes."
God will raise up before your eyes, even like a new Jerusalem, God will raise up a city, God will raise up a continent, and God will raise up a nation even in a day.
Esau, Jacob and the Spirit of Joseph
God says, "It will be a miracle; it will be a phenomena. It will be a paradox to some, a miracle to others, and a phenomena to not just a few with what I do through you, oh Africa. For the army and the wealth of Esau, and the birthright that was stolen and sold is coming back to Jacob."
I see ships, ships, ships full of your people, full of generations, full of mantles, full of anointing, and full of crowns coming back, filling your seashores and filling the horizons as far as the eye can see. From a thousand years ago until now, coming back, coming back, and coming back; for what the devil meant for evil, God has always intended for your good. And the spirit of Joseph shall rest upon you, and you will live in no pit and no prison no more. And the scepter of Pharaoh shall be extended to your nation and kings shall come to the brightness of its rising and the army of the gentiles shall come because the glory of the Lord is arising and shining upon you.
Storehouses to the Nations
God says, "And though gross darkness has covered you, My glory shall arise and shine upon you. For that very text of Scripture was written for such a time as this, and you will not fail in the time of testing and you will pour it back upon the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Great charity will break poverty, and Africa will become a storehouse to the nations. There will be storehouses filled with new manna and new bread, and other countries in the next decade will come to Africa to fill their bags and fill their ships. I will completely turn it around, for all things work together for the good of those called according to My purposes, and My purposes are coming into fullness, fullness, fullness.
And I am recapturing the minds of your youth. They will become doctors and they will become geniuses in their fields. They will become physicists and doctors and lawyers and they will defend you and they will stand for you. And I will raise them up to be the head and not the tail, as prophets and kings--as priests." Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Signs and Wonders Over Africa
It starts in 2008. The stall and the calves have left the gate in 2008, and you will see a phenomenon in the sky above; you watch it, you watch it. Those that are observant and those that are prophetic and even science shall record the mysteries and the signs and wonders in the heavens above and the earth beneath. Blood, fire and pillars of smoke shall be seen over Africa as a sign and a wonder and as a symbol of God's promises and His ability to perform them in this hour. Strange eclipses of the sun and the moon; strange phenomena in the heavens.
I hear the Lord saying, "A star is born, and kings will come to the brightness of its rising to bring their gifts, to bring their wealth and to bring their wisdom."
Hospitals, Universities and Technological Breakthroughs
I see medical hospitals and medical colleges rising up within Africa that will be the envy of the nations, and people will come there to attend those schools and those universities. Like Oxford was in England, God is raising up the academic anointing in the nation of Africa, and you will be the envy of England and the envy of America. Great medical institutions and great academic institutions shall arise from the ashes of civil war.
God says, "Where war has marked those countries, so shall My glory now mark them. I will remove the pricks that you have kicked against and I will remove the obstacles and I will make a way where there appeared to be in one day, no way."
Oh my God. Oh my God. And the Lord says, "I will break up the fountains of the deep and waters shall be found. Waters shall be discovered that will be bottled, that shall become an industrious witty-invention and will bring wealth to the people in the Christian communities. Discoveries, hidden treasures in the darkness will be coming to the light, to the faithful few, and into the hands of the Joseph-anointed. For I am building an Ark in the continent of Africa, and many nations shall come to find the Glory that resides in you."
