Yesterday the major shareholder of the bank came to apologize to John. He explained that there was a political faction (from the ANC) that had infiltrated the bank and which had caused all of these problems. This, he said, had been uncovered and would soon be cleaned up. It is hard for me to believe that the major shareholder would not know of this, but if John lets it go, the bank would never again dare to try to steal money from him again.
Ironically, this bank would now be the safest place to do business, but John will work with another bank where the atmosphere has been friendlier in the past few months. The funds are now being transferred accordingly and should be ready for use on Monday.
Two days ago, John and I discussed for the first time Kingdom strategy as to the allocation of the funds in regard to our ministry. John himself will be focusing mostly on infrastructure projects to benefit the people of Africa themselves, build the economy, reduce unemployment, and so on. He has always had a heart for the African people who, he says, have been plundered by the Europeans in all of its history.
This only became worse after the apartheid era ended in 1994. The African National Congress (ANC) may have started out with high hopes, but the situation only got worse over the years. South Africa is now far worse off than it was prior to 1994. Corrupt government leaders sold their services to the same wealthy bankers and industrialists that had controlled the country previously. Tax money that was supposed to be used to benefit the people was siphoned off to make a few political leaders wealthy.
John intends to do what he can to change that situation. But he says that all of this infrastructure must be built upon a foundation of Truth, or else it will not truly be a Kingdom work. That is where his vision intersects with mine. He wants to fund the vision that I have in regard to establishing Bible schools and ministry centers around the world. The most immediate project is translating books and tracts into local languages and then putting those books into print—much like we are now doing in Pakistan. The goal, of course, is to train Christians to become informed citizens of the Kingdom and not merely the citizens of the Babylonian empire.
We already have the written material, which is the main teaching tool needed for this work. I have written the books and commentaries over a long period of time. I am confident that the Holy Spirit has led me and guided me to write commentaries on specific books of the Bible. But now we are entering a new phase of work, where it will be necessary for the Spirit of Truth (John 16:13) to be poured out upon the world.
The Holy Spirit has already been poured out in times past, but much truth remains hidden from the church. As I see it, the church needs more truth than it realizes. In fact, many do not value truth, thinking it is unspiritual. They tend to equate truth with knowledge and then link knowledge to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That belief actually hinders the work of the Holy Spirit whose job it is to lead us into all truth.
The Spirit teaches us the word of God. If the Spirit is absent, of course, then the knowledge of the word is indeed only a carnal exercise, and one can only be led by a religious spirit.
But I believe such times are now in the past. I believe that God will soon bless the world with the Spirit of Truth, which will honor His Word and write His law upon the hearts of the people in a much greater way than seen in past revivals.
That is my vision for GKM, and I thank God for all of you who have supported us in prayer and in finances through the years. The ministry is now bearing fruit and is ready to launch into the next phase, as we build the Kingdom.
The Law of Fruit-Bearing Trees
The Kingdom of God was established by declaration in 2017 when the time of the beast empires expired on the 8th day of Tabernacles. A few months earlier, on the day of the Second Passover, we prophetically planted the Kingdom “tree” by sowing the seed of the word. I wrote about this on April 27, 2021.
The Second Passover Declaration April 26, 2021
Yesterday, four of us met together on a zoom call to declare that the fruit of the Kingdom Tree is clean and can be eaten by Kingdom people. The past year (fourth year), we were on lockdown and travel was restricted. We were unable to enjoy the fruit of the Kingdom, yet we know that it was all given to God, as the law commands.
If that was how God restrained us last year, perhaps we will soon see those travel restrictions lifted. Perhaps this implies also that the Holy Spirit will no longer be restrained. Will we see the outpouring of the Spirit soon? Rain is certainly necessary to bring forth fruit in the earth. Ultimately, this is about the Fruitfulness Mandate (Genesis 1:28), as well as the house of Ephraim, whose name means “double portion of fruit.”
These four years have been the first four years of a seven-year cycle in the overthrow of Mystery Babylon (2017-2024).
Last year was the fourth year. We are now in the fifth year, where we may begin to eat the fruit from the Kingdom tree. We read of this in Leviticus 19:23-25,
23 When you enter the land and plant all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count their fruit as forbidden. Three years it shall be forbidden to you; it shall not be eaten. 24 But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, an offering of praise to the Lord. 25 In the fifth year you are to eat of its fruit, that its yield may increase for you; I am the Lord your God.
In its New Covenant application, this law principle applies prophetically in terms of our entering the Kingdom in 2017. For the past year the fruit has been “holy,” but it was to be given to God as a first-fruits offering. In 2022 we are now entering the time when we may begin to eat of this fruit abundantly.
That in itself is ironic, seeing that the world seems to be entering a time of food shortages, which the IMF and even resident Brandon himself acknowledged recently. The world needs to eat from a different tree that has holy fruit—fruit that is separated for divine service.
