Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.
May we all be given the burden and grace to pray for the African nations.
If you are unaware, we have had some disturbing things take place in West Africa recently.
There was a coup that took place last week in the republic of Niger which is a neighboring country to Ghana, although not bordering us, but Nigeria. What has transpired will affect us and can possibly affect the whole world with tensions escalating and France and U.S instigating attacks and African nations coming together in alliance to declare war if anyone attacks the nation.
Father Derrick had a dream which we believe to be prophetic, and the Lord is calling all Heartdwellers to fast and pray with us. Here is an article from Al Jazeera which I trust, that explain a bit of what is going on so you can understand then Jesus will touch on this subject and what he wants us to do.
From the Aljazeera news article
Niger coup: Divisions as ECOWAS military threat fails to play out-
Mary Elisha: So, just a heads up – ECOWAS is: Economy, Community of West African States. Basically, it was put together by the U.S and it’s simply like a ‘U.N’ for West African Nations. And it’s an alliance for several West African Nations that come together to declare democracy. Unfortunately, we know that whatever America’s a part of, always has their narrative and has their agenda. So keep that in mind. So, back to the article –
As a deadline to restore Niger’s democratic government passes, strong initial ECOWAS reaction to Niger coup d’etat now appears divided.
All eyes are on the next move by West African leaders who vowed to attack coup leaders in Niger if they failed to free the detained president and revert back to a democratically elected government. The deadline for the threat of force involving troops from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was Sunday. By late evening, no sign of a military intervention in Niger was apparent. While some observers say the bloc’s hardline stance was prompted by Western allies
(Mary Elisha speaking: meaning that they feel that America is the one who prompted ECOWAS to make such a bold statement to say – if you do not revert back to the old government, the Nations will attack you. America and France in particular, wanted the African Nations within ECOWAS to attack Niger. So back to the article) –
-While some observers say the bloc’s hardline stance was prompted by Western allies, the United States and France in particular – ECOWAS’s moves reflect a different approach of its new chairman, Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu, and they crystallize the fear of member-state leaders who do not want their militaries getting their own ideas, analysts say.
“Coups are rarely carried out in isolation, especially when there are similar experiences, structures and institutions in neighbouring countries,”
“Militaries in the region exchange intelligence so democratic administrations are likely worried about the possibility of their soldiers engaging in similar acts.”
But ECOWAS’s combative response to Niger’s coup also reveals unusual cracks in the alliance of its 15 member states.
(Mary Elisha: So as I mentioned before, ECOWAS consists of 15 different countries in West Africa that have come together like a U.N, to be United Nations of West Africa, to kind of implement and encourage democracy. And once again, it’s backed up by the U.S.) –
-As the threat of a regional war dangles palpably in the air, countries have scrambled to pick a side in what is shaping up to be a major showdown – with wealthier coastal economies on the one side and their landlocked, military-led counterparts on the other. Niger’s neighbours to the West have risen to the defence of the new General, that has dug it’s heels in and shunned peace talks.
The military governments in Mali and Burkina Faso called ECOWAS’s bluff, saying an armed intervention in Niger would be met with force. Guinea also sided with the putschist leaders. All three countries plus Niger are suspended from ECOWAS (Mary Elisha: so as of now guys, Mali, Burkina, Faso and Guinea, and Niger are all suspended from ECOWAS. Back to the article) –
-and form part of a military-led belt spanning Africa’s Sahel from Guinea in the West to Sudan in the east. Led by Nigeria, richer, coastal states are also uniting as an alarming insecurity trend stemming from their northern neighbours threatens their stability. In recent Gulf of Guinea countries previously spared armed-group violence ravaging the Sahel have experienced attacks in locations bordering Mali and Burkina Faso.
But in recent years, the armed groups have begun to expand their reach, pushing down towards littoral states that have historically struggled to battle piracy in the Atlantic Ocean. In June 2022, Togo declared a state of emergency in response to an attack that killed eight soldiers. Jama’at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM), an al-Qaeda-affiliated group based in Mali, claimed responsibility, marking the first such attack in the country.
Benin recorded eight times more violent incidents last year than in 2021. Recent attacks in Cote d’Ivoire are raising suspicions that sleeper cells are already operating in the country. And Ghana, which has not suffered a direct assault, is bracing itself, pushing the Accra Alliance – an initiative to halt a violent spillover from the Sahel, to act preemptively. Coups in Mali and Burkina Faso have coincided with spikes in violence, analysts say.
Both military governments seized power between 2020 and 2022 – (Mary Elisha: so guys, there’s been a coup in Mali, and Burkina and Faso just in the last year and the year before that.)
-respectively, promising to end insecurity. They have expelled thousands of French and United Nations troops as perceptions that their presence did not improve security growing.
Soldiers from the Wagner Group, a Russian paramilitary force, are now present in both countries. The private military group has been accused of human rights abuses against local communities.
West African leaders have linked the rise of military regimes to the escalating violence by armed groups as well. Oumar Touray, president of the ECOWAS Commission, said in July that the barrage of coups in the region “run parallel to insecurity that West Africa and the Sahel have been facing for some time now”.
Meanwhile, Niger – the last ally of France and the US in the Sahel – saw attack-related deaths reduced by more than 50 percent in recent years. Dialogue with armed groups, engagement with conflict-affected communities, and collaboration with French and US troops helped the situation, said James Barnett of the Hudson Institute (Mary Elisha speaking: and once again, that’s from the U.S, stating that.)-
-But the new military leadership appears poised to move away from that approach. (Mary Elisha: Meaning guys, that the new military in the Republic of Niger, wants nothing to do with the West and France. They want France to get out, they want any U.S and West affiliations in the country to get out because they’re a sovereign nation. They want to take hold of their own country, because to be honest; many African countries have been raped, pillaged and taken advantage of by the West, all their resources, everything is going to colonize- um, those who colonized them. And they’re kinda fed up with that. Did they go about it the right way? No. But they’re really wanting to take hold of the Republic of Niger and have all the resources that have been pillaged by France, for France; now given back to the nation of Republic of Niger. So back to the article-)
-“It has already announced the termination of its defence agreement with France,” said Barnett. “It’s unclear if Wagner will enter the fray, but it is certainly a risk if ECOWAS goes ahead with an intervention, and the junta in Niamey is desperate for external support.”
So how will this affect ECOWAS? (Mary Elisha: this is important guys because Ghana is one of the leading countries in the ECOWAS group that has been formed.
Our president now was a former Chairman for ECOWAS in 2020. Now our Nigeria president is the one who’s the Chairman for that. And so, Nigeria, Ghana; the leading West African wealthier countries, have taken a stance – there’s a huge division now – taken a stance to not agree with this coup and this way of government, because they want to continue to encourage democracy. And then you have the smaller and more poor countries, the militant countries like Mali, Burkina, Faso, Guinea and Republic of Niger, that have been defiant, and said no, we no longer want the West or U.S help or our ‘colonized master’s, no longer involved in our country.
So there’s a huge split here and ECOWAS is being prompted by the U.S and France to do something- to do something about it. So they’re wanting to rise up and instigate Nigeria and Ghana, to actually go in and fight Republic of Niger, to fight their own brothers and sisters, to instill back democratic government that it was before. So here, the article states about how it will affect ECOWAS) –
So ECOWAS is not new to military interventions to restore order. Regional force was crucial to ending the Sierra Leone and Liberia civil wars in the 1990s. In 2017, the alliance helped usher out former Gambian autocrat Yahya Jammeh, who refused to hand over power after losing elections.
But Niger presents ECOWAS’s greatest challenge in 30 years, analysts say.
“There are hard regional divisions at play now,” said Barnett. “This would be a messy conflict.”
Niger’s Western neighbour Chad – which is not officially part of the regional bloc but has played a mediating role – might provide inroads for a land invasion, but has not committed to military action.
[Defence] chiefs have said an invasion would be a last resort, but there is a chance the bloc will continue to take a hardline approach. President Tinubu of Nigeria, the ECOWAS chief, harbours personal ambitions to make Nigeria a regional superpower again, Barnett noted, and France has signaled it will back the bloc’s threat.
Mary Elisha: meaning that France is going to back up ECOWAS. And we all know France is against also to, the Ukraine; and right now Burkina, Faso, Mali and Republic of Niger is all for Russia. So once again, this is such a bigger issue. So that’s the end of the article, for Algeria News Article.
The following days after the coup took place, my cousin said there were several military conveys going to and fro, from the embassy that it caused so much traffic and rumors that soldiers were being trained on how to dismantle a coup government if that took place here in Ghana. I brushed it off and thought: that could not happen.. I was just praying more so for mercy for the rest of that West African nations.
Would you know, the following morning, that Father Derrick had a prophetic dream – where a coup took place here in Ghana. He said there was much pandemonium, disruption and chaos. He was so burdened by the dream because he felt it was so real, and we told his pastor and began to pray. So during prayer, I came to the Lord with all of this on my heart.
Jesus, is Derricks’ dream true Lord?
“It will happen eventually My little one, war is inevitable, but the timing depends on the prayers of My people. It’s time to plead for mercy like never before. That is why I sent you here to this nation for such a time as this. Offer your Lords Supper for this sole intention, to have mercy upon the West African nations that leaders would be yielded to My Spirit, and not the agenda of men. And that the Church would began to pray interceding like never before, to hold back the Fathers hand a little while longer.
“There are many dynamics of power in place, much is coming from the West and the elite globalists, who want to depopulate and are using the war to do it. World War 3 is inevitable as well but again, it’s all the timing. Everything is being set in motions. They wanted to start World War 3 with the Russia and Ukraine conflict, but Putin is a very smart man and did not budge when they advanced and invaded, as he instructed them not to. He knew any form of relation would cost him dearly and the world dearly in this moment – but do not think for one second he is not preparing for it.
“All the nations of the Earth are now preparing for a World War, they know it’s coming. And a war of that magnitude takes time, so many nations are equipping their military, security, and preparing many underground bunkers when D day begins. For now, everyone is diplomatic and smiling in each other’s faces, knowing the intent of their allies and their enemies. Something of this magnitude would affect tremendously the current state of your nation. There will be many sanctions, riots, protest and the ones who will hurt the most, are the poor, and street vendors and workers. The West has placed Ghana exactly where they want them to be, right in the palm of their hand, for this nation leads the West in Africa. So pray My people, and My dear ones, back to back Divine Mercies, pleading for mercy on this nations behalf.
“If war was to break out amongst the African people in the West, it will ignite a further precedence for World War 3 and accelerate the West’s idea that war is now necessary to gain control over the masses. With war, comes cyber media warfare and mind controlling. They have done it so well to cover up the truth about the Russia and Ukraine conflict, that many are blinded to the truth and the current motivations and actions of Americas current president. Many are waking up and catching on to the lies and false narratives spoken in the news about the situation.”
I said: Lord, something like this will put a hold on everything. I can imagine there will be government sanctions, lockdowns you name it –how can we prepare?
“For now My little one, get your flock praying. Offer a novena for this intention and pray The Divine Mercy very intentionally for Ghana and all West African nations. It would be good to keep a large amount of their currency money on you beloved.
The thought came to My mind to keep dollars instead.
“No beloved, it won’t be of much value when something like this takes place. Do not fear and know that I am with you. I stand with the nation of Ghana, although it’s people have gone wayward in immorality – there are many who sincerely cry out to Me and pray with pure hearts and I hear. I will pour out My spirit on many, to give them a nudge of what is to come, so churches begin praying for the nation.”
And that was the end of Jesus’ message.
Thank you family. Please stand with us in prayer. We’ll have the Novena prayer in the comments, if you wanna join us. And the Lord is calling for us all to have a 21 day fast of prayer, for the work of the City of God and this mission.
Thank you for those who have given to us, who have encouraged us, who have supported us in donations that have poured in, thank you so much, may God bless you. God is faithful!
