God’s Blessing on Zambia

Prior to embarking on overseas mission assignments, many missionaries engage in devotionals that include prayer and fasting; bible study and journaling; and beseeching God’s throne for safe traveling mercies.  They also pray that their journey will be a blessing for the  awaiting congregations and churches in the remote villages, as well as the many strangers and officials they meet along the way.  Some missionaries have discovered that after interacting and ministering to a foreign audience, it is difficult to know if their words and/or actions are received in love and sincerity because often their messages are conveyed through an interpreter.  The message below is divine proof that God knows the heart of missionaries and can use his written word to respond to an unspoken concern that might be troubling a missionary’s  spirit.  In this case, while reading Isaiah 45, the Holy Spirit transposed the original names of the towns listed there to the towns, villages and churches the missionary had visited in Zambia, South Africa and communed a message of ‘a job well done’ to the missionary travelers.

An Adaptation of Isaiah 44:1-5

“Yet hear me now, O Missionaries to Zambia, My servants, and American Baptist Churches of the South whom I have chosen.

“Thus says the Lord who made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you while on your journey:

“Fear not, O missionaries My servants; and you Eleazar, whom I have chosen as their guide.

“For I will pour water on the House of Lusaka who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground of compounds in Zambia;

“I will pour My Spirit on all those who journeyed to Africa and My blessing on Eleazar’s dream for the Zambian people;

New churches will spring up among the grass huts like willows by the watercourses.

Hope International Church of Lusaka will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’,

Bethel Church of Kafue will call himself by the Name of Jacob;

Soweto Baptist Church will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s’ and

Riverside Baptist Church of Chingola will name himself by the name of Israel.”

(This 2002 prophecy is certain to come to pass, saith the Lord.)

Scripture Verses:  So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.  What can human beings do to me?”  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever.  Hebrews 13:6; 8
