The New Year was still busy shaking off its hangover, when the parliament buildings were set ablaze in Cape town, South Africa. Congratulations, somebody had been taken into custody in connection with this obvious (?) deed of arson, but my first question is: Who was behind this man if he indeed was responsible? Maybe the Hawks will sniff it out, but then I’ve got a second question: Who was behind whoever they sniff out? Was it some sinister evil forces infiltrating some evil minds? Or does God want to say something to us here in South Africa?
Indeed, God is saying something to us, in fact, He is again writing on the wall of the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa! Again, because He also did some writing in the past, but unfortunately, there was no Daniel around to decipher the writing.
It happened on September 6 1966 at 14h15, when God wrote on the wall of the National Assembly in Cape town, but the only thing those “prophets” saw was a uniformed parliamentary messenger stabbing Dr H.F. Verwoerd in the neck and chest, without realizing that the writing was on the wall, not only for the grand architect of Apartheid, but also for that system of government he was head of.
Oh, if only there was a Daniel around, South Africa could perhaps have dismantled Apartheid so much earlier, saved an ocean of tears and harvested an abundance of goodwill and peace!
Then, in the early hours of Sunday the 2nd of January, more than 55 years later, God again wrote on the wall of the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa. This time God did not use a finger, but a fiery torch! Fortunately, there is now a Daniel to decipher the script:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN
Here is what these words mean:
Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”
(Daniel 5:26-28 NIV)
King Belshazzar needed Daniel to decipher what were foreign words, but for the current South African Government the Bible translators did a splendid job. It must just be pointed out that this writing on the wall is meant very specifically for the powers that be in South Africa in 2022!
I will just highlight some points: Please note that the first word 'Mene’ is repeated! It means that there is no ambiguity about your days being numbered!
Tekel: You had your chance. God even gave you a Bridge in Nelson Mandela, held up by an Arch in Desmond Tutu, to guide you out of the morass of Apartheid, yet you still utterly failed God and the people of South Africa. You’ve been weighed on the Divine scales, but found wanting!
Peres: A new dualistic government is going to succeed you at the end of 2022, whether you believe or like that or not! It will be a two-state government where secular and religious matters will be separated and both ruled by one Divinely appointed King and Priest, God’s very own Ambassador (Mal.3:1).
This will be the coming to pass of the prophetic words of one of your leaders: “The ANC will rule until Jesus comes!” It will in fact be the Ambassador of Jesus that will take the reins from their hands, but for all practical purposes it is the same thing!
Is this a pipedream and is it at all feasible? Have a little patience! This is a prophesy in the Book of Daniel, which is only scheduled to come to pass in 2022, about 2200 years after it was written. It is definitely going to happen in the last quarter of 2022, this crunch year for South Africa and the world! We are all in for a rough ride when the Old Order of things will be Divinely forced out, but soon thereafter we will “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” (Psa.34:8)
