South Africa asks, “So, how was it?”
How was the one-million man event?
‘It’s Time’ is time for what?
What happened there on the sacred soil?
The sceptic asks, “Why all the effort?”
Can’t you stay at home and pray just the same?
Why bother with the travel, the dust, the crowds, the traffic, the cost?
Does God still speak through man as in Bible times?
From one who was present on the 22nd of April
Here is my response to everyone under the African sun
‘It’s Time’ was a solemn gathering orchestrated by God
It was purposed in such a way that NO man can take credit
No matter how good your charisma or advertising
No man can attract a multitude in such a short time
God sounded a TRUMPET for us to come
El Shaddai, He is the GLORIFIED ONE
Hearts overwhelmed by the presence of God
Tears flowing freely in awe and wonder
We were witness to a God-kairos visitation
Adonai, be the LORD of our nation
It is a kairos time for the people of God
It is time to CONFESS our sins and TURN to God
It is time to PRAY for and SPEAK HOPE to Africa
Jesus, RIVER OF LIFE, flow through this land
To the doubters I say, “You try and organise a million by human ways!”
And NO, NOTHING was sold on the grounds that day
‘My House shall be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER for all nations’
Can a nation be birthed in ONE DAY?
IT’S TIME was not a call of man
But a DIVINE INVITATION from Heaven’s court
His children responded in humility and obedience
For the SALVATION of Africa and the GLORY of God
Yes, God STILL SPEAKS and WORKS today
Father, open our eyes to SEE Your hand
Moving sovereignly in our land
We proclaim: ‘JESUS, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE, THE WAY!’
Never will we look again to the world
For HOPE for PEACE or JUSTICE
Only in CHRIST they’ll be found
So Christian, IT’S TIME to blow the trumpet sound!
Reflections on the IT’S TIME prayer gathering in Bloemfontein, South Africa, on 22 April 2017, where close to a million people attended to seek God’s face for our country.
