MESSAGE FROM KING DAVID Africa, even though we cannot see it or understand it right now. I know that at the right time God will reveal it. Already we are seeing a miracle upon our continent of Africa – most of our African countries have the lowest numbers of Corona virus, and I believe this is due to the hand of God upon Africa protecting us. So we have good reason to be thankful as we wait to see the bigger plan of God for us. Love to create One Africa This pandemic is showing the world that there can no longer be a dividing line between the rich and the poor. We are all one and we need to look after each other because if we don’t the virus will continue to affect everyone – rich and poor, black and white, male and female. We have to come together as One irrespective of our skin color, our nationality, our tribe, our language or even religion. We have to stand together as ONE AFRICA. This is the only way we can defeat the real enemy of poverty and suffering on our continent. It is only when we can cultivate love – love for each other but even more importantly love for God that we will achieve peace and prosperity. We have to COME TOGETHER IN LOVE TO CREATE ONE AFRICA IN GOD. Let us adopt this as our vision for Africa. Proclaiming Africa’s Jubilee I greet you in the name of the Almighty God, the Eternal, the Creator, who gave life on this earth and established the universe and all things as His inheritance through Jesus Christ. Corona Pandemic Most of us are currently still in confinement in our houses and with our families due to the Corona Covid-19 pandemic. I want to start my letter by encouraging you – things may be very tough at the moment, but do not lose hope. God Almighty, our good Father sees us and He knows our situation and has a plan that will deliver us from the current situation. I believe that despite all the chaos in the world, God is working through that to reveal His master plan for

Jubilee I decree and proclaim’. Africa has provided economic blessing and wealth to the western world over the centuries and this now needs to be acknowledged and recognized. This is Africa’s season of Jubilee. God healing our land In the bible God says from 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. We need to take heed of God’s word and obey it. I call upon us as ‘One Africa’ to humble ourselves before God, to pray, to seek His face and to turn away from our wicked ways so that God can heal our people and the land of Africa. As we are obedient to God and wait upon Him for deliverance, we also need to take precautions - we need to wash our hands, we have to wear gloves, it’s true that God wants us to protect ourselves, but most importantly He wants us to seek the most important solution – to seek Him and His ways. One of God’s ways for Afri-

The unity of ONE AFRICA is what will allow us to break free from the bondage of World Institutions like the United Nations (UN), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) who put difficult financial and trading restrictions upon Africa. Africa has been the source of most of the commodities that built up the economies of most of the western world and these commodities continue to be extracted from Africa for the benefit of other nations with very little benefit coming to Africa. Despite this, Africa continues to be under the burden of debt to these western funding institutions. It is because of this that I call upon all national debt of African countries to be cancelled immediately – ‘this is Africa’s

May 2020 CONTINUE... MESSAGE FROM KING DAVID tions to stand in agreement on this and stop the foreign agenda of vaccines into Africa so that we can turn back to the ancient medicinal and health knowledge that we have on our continent. Tribute to His Excellency President Alassance Quattara

ca is that He established an ancient structure of leadership on the continent. It’s a structure of traditional leaders – Kings and Chiefs, who have the mandate to ensure the wellbeing of their people, to ensure that they are protected, to resolve disputes and to ensure that economic resources are preserved and protected across the generations. This is something that we have to restore because it is how God designed Africa to work. The Diaspora My heart is also with the children of Africa who are living in the Diaspora. I am very sad to see the news and statistics of how people of African descent are more affected and suffering because of Corona virus in the USA and in Europe. Maybe this is a sign that the children of Africa are more protected when they are on their motherland of Africa. I pray that God will show us the truth about this and how the 6th region of the African continent (the Diaspora) can serve our children who are not on the land of Africa. I am very angry to see how African’s have been abused and treated very badly by some countries, especially China. We as Africa have welcomed and treated the Chinese people who come to

mel@ukaa.africa |

Africa very well. We have treated them as our brothers and sisters and yet they treat our children in China badly. I call upon the leaders and Government of China to urgently address this and put a stop to the mistreatment of Africans in China. Vaccines and treatment to Corona virus I am very excited to hear the news that African countries such as Madagascar have found traditional African ways to treat and cure Corona virus. As Africa we have so much ancient knowledge on medicine and so we have to support each other with the solutions from Africa. I want to say to organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) that they should start acknowledging the ability and capability of Africa and not refuse to accept the treatments that are being produced on the continent. The world has to change its mindset about Africa and stop thinking that solutions can only come from western countries and pharmaceutical companies that abuse poor countries. Africa does not want to be forced to accept vaccines that carry an agenda to further oppress our people. Africa has the knowledge and technology to produce the treatment we need for our people. I urge all the Presidents of the African na-

I would like to turn back to my nation of birth to congratulate His Excellency President Alassane Ouattara for making the mature and very honorable decision to withdraw from seeking election and opening the door to new leadership to build on the good work he has done. He has such merits in numerous fields. Thanks to him, today there is a King’s platform which functions, thanks to him for recognizing traditional chiefs for the wisdom and value they bring to the nation. Thank you for your leadership. My final request is that you consider bringing all the past leaders together as brothers so that reconciliation is achieved. This will be a great legacy for you to leave behind for the nation of Ivory Coast. The Lord’s blessing I finish my letter with the Lord’s blessing to the whole of Africa. “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

May 2020 WHO CHANGED THE SABBATH TO SUNDAY? His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made” (Genesis 2:2–3). It was later codified as the Fourth Commandment (Exodus 20:8–11).

Sidonia, King David (King Dr Tchiffi Zie) and Maria

Leaders of Africa, God is pressing this matter on mine and Sidonia’s hearts.. It is clear to us that God is resetting time by demanding repentance for the transgressions of our fathers that we inherited, without question. But the time has come now... Ezekiel 20:12 “Moreover I gave them my Sabbath to be a sign between Me and them, that they may understand and realise that I am the Lord Who sanctifies them. “ And God says clearly... “Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols.” Ezekiel 20:24 KJV “Therefore, son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed me, in that they have committed a trespass against me.” Ezekiel 20:27 KJV There can be no doubt that Christ, His disciples, and the first-century Christians kept Saturday, the seventh-day Sabbath. Yet, today, most of the Christian professing world keeps Sunday, the first day of the week, calling it the Sabbath. Who made this change, and how did it occur? No serious student of the Scriptures can deny that God instituted the Sabbath at creation and designated the seventh day to be kept holy. “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all

mel@ukaa.africa |

The Word of God makes it expressly clear that Sabbath observance is a special sign or “mark” between God and His people. There is also no uncertainty that Christ, His disciples, and the first-century Christians kept the seventh-day Sabbath as commanded—the day we now call “Saturday” (Mark 2:28; Luke 4:16). Is There Any Biblical Support for Sunday Observance? There is absolutely no New Testament text stating that God, Jesus, or the apostles changed the Sabbath to Sunday—not a text, not a word, not even a hint or suggestion. If there were, those chapters and verses would be loudly heralded by Sabbath opposers. Had Paul or any other apostle taught a change from Sabbath to Sunday, the first day of the week, an absolute firestorm of protest would have arisen from conservative Jewish Christians. The Pharisees and scribes would have insisted that Paul or any other person even suggesting such a thing be stoned to death for the sin of Sabbath-breaking. This would have been a much larger issue than the controversy over circumcision! The self-righteous Pharisees had already falsely accused Christ of breaking the Sabbath because He violated the added man-made rules and traditions they placed upon the Sabbath (Mark 2:24). The total absence of any such controversy over a change in the day of worship is one of the best evidences showing the apostles and other New Testament Christians did not change the day. On the contrary, we have a record of many Sabbaths that Paul and his traveling companions kept long after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Read of them in your own Bible in Acts 13:14, 27, 42–44; 15:21; 16:13; 17:2; and 18:4. Acts 13:42–44 is especially significant in that Paul and Barnabas, when speak-

ing at a Jewish synagogue, were invited to speak again the next Sabbath. This would have been Paul’s golden opportunity to tell the people to meet with him the next day rather than waiting a whole week for the Sabbath. But, “on the next Sabbath almost the whole city [Jews and Gentiles alike] gathered to hear the word of the Lord.” Yet today, most of the Christian professing world keeps Sunday, the first day of the week, calling it the Sabbath. The question arises then, who changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and how did it occur? The answer may amaze you! BIBLICAL TESTIMONY The New Testament plainly shows we are to continue keeping the commandments (Mathew 5:17–18; 19:17; 28:20)—all ten of them. Where, then, do men get the “authority” to change the Fourth Commandment by substituting Sunday for the original Sabbath Christ and the apostles kept? The Bible prophesied many centuries earlier that the time would come when men would think to change times and laws (Daniel 7:25). Many Bible prophecies are “dual” in nature—that is, they have a type and antitype, an earlier and a later fulfilment. Though speaking specifically of the soon-coming antichrist, we can see the forerunner type documented in history. THE WATERING DOWN OF THE SABBATH IN THE FIRST 300 YEARS The Christians during the apostolic era, from about 35 to 100 A.D., kept Sabbath on the designated seventh day of the week. For the first 300 years of Christian history, when the Roman emperors regarded themselves as gods, Christianity became an “illegal religion,” and God’s people were scattered abroad (Acts 8:1). Judaism, however, was regarded at that time as “legal,” as long as they obeyed Roman laws. Thus, during the apostolic era, Christians found it convenient to let the Roman authorities think of them as Jews, which gained them legitimacy with the Roman government. However, when the

May 2020 CONTINUE... WHO CHANGED THE SABBATH TO SUNDAY? “Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [Saturday Sabbath to Sunday] was an act of the church... And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things” (H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons). The Catholic Church claims that “the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact” (Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1, 1923). This is a shocking admission!

Jews rebelled against Rome, the Romans put down their rebellion by destroying Jerusalem in A.D. 70 and again in A.D. 135. Obviously, the Roman government’s suppression of the Jews made it increasingly uncomfortable for Christians to be thought of as Jewish. At that time, Sunday was the rest day of the Roman Empire, whose religion was Mithraism, a form of sun worship. Since Sabbath observance is visible to others, some Christians in the early second century sought to distance themselves from Judaism by observing a different day, thus “blending in” to the society around them. During the Empire-wide Christian persecutions under Nero, Maximin, Diocletian, and Galerius, Sabbath-keeping Christians were hunted down, tortured, and, for sport, often used for entertainment in the Colisseum. EMPEROR CONSTANTINE I MADE SUNDAY A CIVIL REST DAY When Emperor Constantine I—a pagan sun-worshipper—came to power in A.D. 313, he legalized Christianity and made the first Sunday-keeping law. His infamous Sunday enforcement law of March 7, A.D. 321, reads as follows: “On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.” (Codex Justinianus 3.12.3, trans. Philip Schaff, History of the

mel@ukaa.africa |

Christian Church, 5th ed. (New York, 1902), 3:380, note 1.) The Sunday law was officially confirmed by the Roman Papacy. The Council of Laodicea in A.D. 364 decreed, “Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday but shall work on that day; but the Lord’s day they shall especially honour, and, as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out from Christ” (Strand, op. cit., citing Charles J. Hefele, A History of the Councils of the Church, 2 [Edinburgh, 1876] 316). Cardinal Gibbons, in Faith of Our Fathers, 92nd ed., p. 89, freely admits, “You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we [the Catholic Church] never sanctify.” Again, “The Catholic Church, … by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday” (The Catholic Mirror, official publication of James Cardinal Gibbons, Sept. 23, 1893). “Protestants do not realize that by observing Sunday, they accept the authority of the spokesperson of the Church, the Pope” (Our Sunday Visitor, February 5, 1950).

A PROPHECY COME TO PASS! At this point we need to note an amazing prophecy. Daniel 7:25 foretold, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws.” Quoting Daniel 7:25, Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible says: “He shall speak great words against the Most High] Literally, Sermones quasi Deus loquetur; “He shall speak as if he were God.” So Jerome quotes from Symmachus. To none can this apply so well or so fully as to the popes of Rome. • They have assumed infallibility, which belongs only to God. • They profess to forgive sins, which belongs only to God. • They profess to open and shut heaven, which belongs only to God. • They profess to be higher than all the kings of the earth, which belongs only to God. • And they go beyond God in pretending to loose whole nations from their oath of allegiance to their kings, when such kings do not please them! • And they go against God when they give indulgences for sin. This is the worst of all blasphemies! “And shall wear out the saints”. By wars, crusades, massacres, inquisitions, and persecutions of all kinds. What in this way have they not done against all those who have protested against their innovations,

CONTINUE... WHO CHANGED THE SABBATH TO SUNDAY? and refused to submit to their idolatrous worship? Witness the exterminating crusades published against the Waldenses and Albigenses. Witness John Huss, and Jerome of Prague. Witness the Smithfield fires in England! Witness God and man against this bloody, persecuting, ruthless, and impure Church! The assembly of Bishops, called by Constantine 1, and known as the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, laid the first stepping stones for the church to invent themselves in unity in order to become a world dominating force to recon with. “And think to change times and laws”. ..Appointing fasts and feasts; canonizing persons whom he chooses to call saints; granting pardons and indulgences for sins; instituting new modes of worship utterly unknown to the Christian Church; new articles of faith; new rules of practice; and reversing, with pleasure, the laws both of God and man.­–Dodd” (Emphasis his; Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Volume IV, p. 594). Who Changed the Sabbath to Sunday? Your Bible says, “But in vain [uselessness] they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7). Further, “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word [the Bible], it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah 8:20). “Prove to me from the Bible alone that I am bound to keep Sunday holy. There is no such law in the Bible. It is a law of the Catholic Church alone. The Catholic Church says, by my divine power I abolish the Sabbath day and command you to keep holy the first day of the week. And lo! The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the Holy Catholic Church” (Thomas Enright, CSSR, President, Redemptorist College [Roman Catholic], Kansas City, MO, Feb. 18, 1884).

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

“The Pope has power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ. The Pope has authority and has often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ” (Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop).

COMMANDMENT 1 You shall have NO OTHER GODS before ME

COMMANDMENT 2 You shall NOT make OR WORSHIP IDOLS

It is a matter of Biblical and secular history that God never changed His holy Sabbath or transferred its solemnity to Sunday. Who did?

COMMANDMENT 3 You shall NOT take the NAME OF THE LORD in vain

Rome, in concert with the Roman Catholic Church, is responsible for changing the Sabbath to Sunday!

COMMANDMENT 4 Remember the SABBATH DAY keep it Holy

What will you believe? Whom will you follow? The God of your Bible—or the traditions of men?

COMMANDMENT 5 Honor your FATHER & MOTHER

To honour God’s correct Temple calendar does not mean one is converting to Judaism. It just means a person is acknowledging God’s instruction to His followers in the Bible and that of Yeshua, His begotton son in His time spent on earth and not religious dogma men orchestrated for self-gain.

COMMANDMENT 6 You shall NOT MURDER

COMMANDMENT 7 You shall NOT COMMIT adultery

We must repent our ignorance and go back to the olden times to give our Father God the honour and respect He so deserves. God will abundantly bless and protect ONLY His faithful children in these coming times

COMMANDMENT 8 You shall NOT STEAL

COMMANDMENT 9 You shall NOT bear FALSE WITNESS - DO NOT LIE

It is therefore UKAA’s official viewpoint that God’s Shabbat will be honoured from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, every 7 th day of the week. Amen.

COMMANDMENT 10 You shall NOT COVET - DO NOT ENVY

MARIA Co-founder UKAA

YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL, MIND AND STRENGTH - THIS IS THE 1ST AND -

GREAT COMMANDMENT - THE SECOND IS LIKE IT YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF ON THESE 2 COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL LAW & PROPHETS - MATTHEW 22:37-40 -

During the difficult time experienced in South Africa as a result of Covid 19, Earth’s Call Foundation is overwhelmed by the incredible support we have received for our feeding program. Donations have poured in from local farmers who know only too well how desperate the hunger and famine situation is in our rural communities. Miracles are being seen as farmers donate produce across South Africa and

We are blessed to be able to work with such caring individuals and we want to encourage all Kings and Traditional Leaders to source and promote the same sharing of crops throughout your Kingdoms, to feed and care for the less privileged communities. Promote home growing of vegetables with uncontaminated non GM (genetically modified seeds) Ask our Father God to bless the crops and the yield will multiply!!

This method saves water, uses little space and the weeds are minimal.

LET’S TRADE GOODS

Step 1. Mielie meel bags are filled with good fertilized soil.

Step 2. Make holes for seeds collected from consumed food.

Khumbula High School could have easily traded their unwanted or excess vegetables with other schools or churches in their area, for items that they could put to better use. It is so important for us to remember that this was how we did things in the very beginning, before the invention of money. If there was the need for clothing or other items, people would barter what they had in order to get what they needed. In the uncertain times that lie ahead, we encourage everyone to grow vegetables and fruit to trade as well as re-useable possessions that might have value to others. Food, clothes, equipment, building materials can be re-purposed and traded for much needed items. Re-thinking, Reusing, Reducing & Recycling

Khumbula High School gardening project - Every home must have a garden: It is easy! Trade with neigbours for a variety of seeds.

May 2020 HOW TO CHANGE ANCESTRAL LEGACIES...

New brain and cell research reveals our habits are passed onto our children and grandchildren. “The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet He does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sins of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” Numb 14.18 Are behavioural patterns in some family history recurring? Are our ancestors interfering in our current lives? Science is merely discovering these powerful biblical truths. Strongholds such as anxiety, poverty, illnesses, criminal behaviour and addictions to name a few prevails. *The Bible refers to these patterns as generational curses, *which the church has long believed were purely spiritual. But according to new research, this biblical principle is far more scientific than we realize. The concept of generational curses is also presented in Exodus 20:5. In the King James Version it says that God will “visit” the sins of the fathers down to the third

mel@ukaa.africa |

and fourth generation. The term “visit” makes more sense in light of this new study which shows that generational curses can, indeed, be scientifically traced back from one generation to another. Studies show, our life experiences and choices do change us, specially our brains, and our DNA level. These changes can be passed onto our children and further down the hereditary line. It can influence for instance a monarch’s reign and the destiny of his people. Epigenetics gives insight to how our African living environments that possibly contain many traumatic events such as the witnessing of mass killings, severe famine, abuse, rape, manipulation, torture – can change the genetic legacy we pass onto our children and grandchildren. Epigenetics is information that sits above the genome, which controls the programming of DNA, instructing different cells how to express themselves. Thus our cell memory is transferable. In the previous article on water, we discussed how water reacts to a voice instruction and retains the

emotion and therefore also our body’s cells we are 80% water. INHERITED INFORMATION Epigenetics thus reveals that not only do we pass along the DNA sequence to our children, but we also pass along our epigenetic instructions to them. In other words, information is inherited from our ancestors and transmitted through to the new generations. “We can pass along both positive or negative emotions/memory, depending on the choices we make in life” said Jennings. “One example were the attacks of 9/11. Among the thousands of people directly exposed to the attack were 1,700 pregnant women. Some of these women developed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their children reacted with high levels of fear and stress around loud noises, unfamiliar people, or new foods. It seems the infants inherited the nightmare that their mothers experienced on that day.”

May 2020 CONTINUE... HOW TO CHANGE ANCESTRAL LEGACIES...

SINS OF THE FATHER It is therefore time that we put the concept of generational curses under the microscope. Suddenly our habits and experiences have far greater social implications, because we no longer live lives just for yourself but for our descendants too. Probably the most devastating consequence is that God guarantees us – His Word is very clear: ‘the curse will be visited to the third and fourth generation.’ The good news is that even if epigenetic modifications are passed onto our offspring, they are reversible. In other words, it is possible to break the curse. Question....? If a Follower of Yeshua (Jesus), is set free from his past after being born-again, why are there so many believers who still see the effects of generational curses in their lives? Because people don’t follow our Father God’s instructions nor truly believe that God sent His Son, Yeshua (Jesus) to save us from ourselves. Ezekiel 14:6 says, “Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.” ... ‘ “Great is repentance: it brings healing into the world”; “it reaches to the throne of the Lord”; “it brings redemption”; “it prolongs man’s life”; Christ has specifically redeemed us from the curse of the Old Testament law, having become a curse for us, (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’, Galatians 3:13). The Old Testament law condemns us, but with our Father God’s grace, He gives us the gift of non-condemnation. Once we are gripped by grace, we can truly have the mind of Christ which transforms our behaviour, clears our cell memory which will again effect all our relationships and also the lives of the people who depend on our guidance. What does it mean? A curse or bad cell memory from an ancestor is not automatically broken or cleared if we become a Christian. God will release us only from this curse or mem-

ory if we truly repent and acknowledge Him as the true and only God and that He sacrificed His Son, Yeshua (Jesus) to die on the cross to set us free. God requires us to do a sincere Repentances. African leaders will needs to repent themselves and once the Holy Spirit arrives, a mass mobilisation of people with the need to repent can be arranged by leaders. This dedicated mass repentance action will wash the generational 400 year curse away over Africa and much more personal memories can then be addressed ... Such an action can take the form of mass Baptism ceremonies with sincere repentance prayers or motivated seclusion in people’s own inner sanctuary with God as a witness to their own repentance. A true personal repentance calls for all buried unresolved emotions and sinful deeds stemming from the breaking of the 10 commandments, sins to be acknowledged and cleared before God. If the memory persists, ask God in deep prayer or mediation, whilst you revisit the location of the pain or the hurtful memory, to reveal the cause of the ailment or emotional memory to you. When God reveals the source, in your mind, forgive that person/s and release the emotion. It is so important that Forgiveness of all those that have sinned/harmed us, must form part of the process. Only then will our Father God give us in return His unconditional forgiveness.

Understanding and following those 10 commandments is crucial. It requires Biblical study. As a King or Traditional leader, please don’t think of it as a battle you are just fighting for your own household. Traditional leaders are fighting for the very Kingdom lineage that God gave His people, a lineage which is the responsibility of the Kings. If the Kings and Traditional leaders of Africa want to truly break this 400 year curse, please adhere to God’s instructions and laws and instruct your own people to repent their idolatry (1,2 and 3rd commandment) and the disrespect of God’s sabbaths or Holy Days (4th commandment) to follow the true Calendar the way the original Temple calendar dictates. Col. 2:16, Isa. 66:26 Leaders of Africa... It is time to set the people of Africa free from the Biblical curse the ancestors brought on them. It is also time to release the spirits of the ancestors so they can come before God to be judged. God be with you on this journey...

CONCLUSION As leaders, we now have an understanding of epigenetics, and we no longer have to be victims of predetermined genetic codes and curses. The crucifixion of Christ allows us now a choice to break the Biblical curses and to rid ourselves of our ancestral harmful memories. Once we clear our emotional baggage, we can start a new life as a born-again citizen of God’s Kingdom with a renewed understanding of the importance to honour God’s 10 commandments and the legacy we want to leave behind in our children.

DID YOU KNOW THE EVOLUTION THEORY HAS BEEN DISPROVED BY EPIGENETICS?

A BLOW TO THE EVOLUTION THEORY This quiet scientific revolution could be a paradigm shift for evolutionary biology, as it refutes Darwin’s central premise. Neuropsychologist, Dr. Tim Jennings said, “Which is more scientifically accurate – the Bible or Charles Darwin? It’s the Bible, it turns out. Darwin hypothesized that it was mutation over millions of years that caused finches to have different beaks. Science has actually now proved, it’s epigenetic modification. This is a big moment in time, because science is now confirming Scripture. The evolution theory is now irrelevant.

mel@ukaa.africa |

Epigenetics is one of the fastest-growing areas of biological research worldwide. It is upending long-held views about people, society and life. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us… — John 1:1–3, 14 God is omniscient (all-knowing), and He foreknew Adam and Eve would sin. He would judge that sin (Genesis 3) and the world would be cursed (Romans 8:22). God knew that organisms would need the ability to adapt in a world that was no longer “very good.”

God likely designed organisms with epigenetic mechanisms to allow them to change easily and quickly in relation to their environment. These types of changes are much more valuable than random mutation and natural selection because they can produce immediate benefits for offspring without harming the basic information in the actual sequence of DNA. Although we often hear that “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution,” it should be said that “nothing in biology makes sense without the Creator God.” Epigenetics is an exciting field of science that displays the intelligence and providence of God to help organisms adapt and survive in a fallen world.

May 2020 JAM - WORKING TIRELESSLY TO FEED OUR HUNGRY POPULATION

Joint Aid Management (JAM) is an International Humanitarian Relief organisation founded by Peter and Ann Pretorius with a vision that with adequate nutrition, every child is equipped to learn and create a better future for themselves. Founded in 1984, JAM currently feeds and serves approximately 1,2 million beneficiaries in Angola, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Sudan, Uganda, Sierra Leone and South Africa. In South Africa, their Early Childhood Development (ECD) feeding programmes reach approximately 120 000 pre-school children in 3 000 centres. They operate in all nine provinces, providing children with a highly nutritious meal every school day. It is JAM’s belief that hungry children cannot learn and

without education, there can be no development. Passionate about those they serve, they will not rest until they realise a South Africa without vulnerable people. Sadly, in South Africa, approximately two million children go to bed hungry each night. These children miss out on the vital nutrients necessary for their physical and cognitive development, which may have a devastating effect on their future. 90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of five, and adequate nutrition is crucial for mental growth. Without it, the scars of stunting follow a child and affect their prospects

for health, learning and success throughout their lives. Nutrition is the foundation for children to achieve their full potential and the best chance at a brighter future. JAM feeds children in pre-schools and assist the surrounding communities, increasing food security by empowering families and individuals. Their programmes meet the immediate needs of malnutrition, and address development through multi-level training and extensive agricultural programmes.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1) and he created it with all the resources required to sustain His beloved creation (us) for as long as we are present on earth. After God created human beings in his own image, He then tells us to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and govern it (Genesis 1:28).

On the 9th March over US$5 trillion of market value (wealth) was lost on the S&P 500’s (one of the USA’s main stock exchanges) due to fears about the spreading coronavirus and its impact on the global economy, and the collapse of oil prices. This triggered a halting in trade to stop the biggest one-day decline since 2011. Globally stock markets posted their biggest fall in value since the 2008 financial crisis. Big names like Apple lost US$100 billion of value and Microsoft’s value declined by $83.6 billion. This is an indication of how quickly wealth can be made and lost in the world and also a testament of how wealth can very quickly change hands based on the decisions people make – either through fear or through faith. Shifting of wealth from the ‘pride, greed and self-centredness system’ to the ‘humility, generosity and servant-heart system’ I personally believe we have entered an era in which we will see the current world economic system driven by pride, greed and self-centeredness start to collapse and be replaced by an economic system that will thrive based on Father God’s blueprint of humility, generosity and servanthood. This ‘ancient’ blueprint of Father God will see the poor, widows, orphans and the vulnerable being uplift-

This is God’s instruction to humans to procreate and also set up an economic system to ensure that the resources of the earth are managed in a way that will ensure that all people are sufficiently provided for. God also gives Adam and Eve clear instructions on what resources they can use and those they can’t. (Genesis 2:15). Unfortunately humans decided to violate God’s instructions and consumed a resource that God had told them not to consume (Genesis 3:6). From this point onwards what we see in the world are two groups trying to seek dominion over the works of Father God’s hand (the resources of the earth). Those who reject Father God or/and His ways and continue to walk in disobedience to Father God (furthering the pride, greed and self-centeredness system) and those who have repented of their sins and have returned back to Father God and importantly are following and obeying His statutes for all areas of life and society as outlined in His word and as directed by the Holy Spirit (furthering the humility, generosity and servant-heart system) So in the area of wealth we have a situation that we can summarize in a simple equation – Total Global Wealth = Wealth held in the Kingdom of Father God +

CONTINUE...INVESTING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GLOBAL WEALTH CREATION EQUATION Wealth held in the kingdom of the devil. The ‘Wealth held in the Kingdom of Father God’ refers to assets and financial resources that are in the hands of stewards who are using them according to Father God’s economic system (humility, generosity and servant-heart) for the purposes of seeing the establishment of Father God’s Kingdom on earth and fulfilling the manifestation of His will on earth as it is in heaven.

equation showing that – ‘Wealth held in the kingdom of the devil’ > (is greater than) ‘Wealth held in the Kingdom of Father God’.

believers of Jesus Christ need to seriously take stock of where our financial and economic allegiance lies – on Father God’s side or the enemy’s.

The levels of crime, corruption, materialism, greed, poverty are a clear evidence of this fact and so is the declining rate of giving in churches and the constant lack of resources in mission and ministry organisations.

If our assets/resources/wealth are not surrendered to the Lord and linked to a Kingdom purpose then we need to realise that we are building on the wrong side and hence furthering the interests of the devil on earth. So the question every person should be asking is – which side of the equation have I invested in?

The ‘Wealth held in the kingdom of the devil’ refers to assets and financial resources that are in the hands of man (both non-Christians and Christians) who are using them for the purposes of their own desires and therefore being used to further the economic system of the enemy which is based on materialism, pride, greed, self-centredness and the accumulation of riches outside the guidelines of Father God’s economic, financial and business principles. Defining the ‘wealth options’ in these 2 very distinct areas without any middle ground seems quite harsh and can bring a lot of controversy but it comes from the understanding that Jesus clearly gives us two choices when he says in Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate the one and love the other, you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both Father God and mammon.” So whatever wealth is not being used to further Father God’s interests is therefore furthering the interests of the devil since Jesus once again says “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.” (Luke 11:23). With Jesus there is no middle ground. The ideal situation should read – ‘Total Global Wealth = Wealth held in the Kingdom of Father God’ because this will mean that all of the resources on earth are being used to honour the Lord. But unfortunately even in nations which claims to be Christian majority we still see the

mel@ukaa.africa |

If we have invested on the wrong side, we need to bring this before the Lord and repent and reinvest in the Kingdom economy that has the potential to give a 100 fold return in our lifetime but also gives a 100% guaranteed eternal return as the glory of Father God is projected into a ‘hurting and confused world’ that is desperately seeking the answer which we have. REBUILDING THE ECONOMIES OF AFRICA

THE SAD REALITY

Africa has been blessed with an abundance of natural resources (arguably more than any other continent) in mineral reserves, arable agricultural land and the potential of energy generational plus many others.

The sad reality is that most of us who claim to be Christians have placed our wealth on the devil’s side of the equation and hence are actually working against the Kingdom of Father God. We have continued to operate our economic affairs according the principles that the world has taught us and we have been ignorant to what Father God says about His Kingdom economic system.

We have a population of 1.2 billion of mainly young people. All this augurs well for Africa to be the centre of shifts in wealth if we can invest on the ‘right side of the global wealth equation’.

Most of our investments are therefore sitting on the enemy’s side of the equation and hence the Lord cannot use them for his purposes because we have kept them from him (because we have taken up the position of ownership instead of stewardship).

It is time for Africa now to take up its rightful place on the global economic platform and create inclusive wealth and prosperity for her children across the 54 nations and the diaspora.

We are now in a critical era where we as

The kapok’s huge buttressed trunk tapers upward to an almost horizontal, spreading crown where large, compound leaves are made up of five to eight long, narrow leaflets. In full sun, the kapok can grow up to 4 metres (13 feet) per year, eventually reaching a height of 50 metres (164 feet). Tree Foilage The kapok is deciduous, dropping its foliage after seasonal rainy periods. Flowering occurs when the tree is leafless, thereby improving access for the bats that feed on the sugar-laden nectar of kapok blossoms. In doing so, the bats unwittingly pollinate the tree’s flowers. The flowers open at night and have five petals that are white or pink on the outside. Only a few flowers on a given branch will open on any particular night during the two or three weeks that the tree blooms. When in full bloom, this spectacular tree is hard to miss with its clouds of large, flimsy lily-like pink flowers cascading from the green branches Kapok in Bloom Kapoks do not bloom every year, and some may go 5–10 years without flowering. When the tree does bloom, however, it is prolific, producing up to 4,000 fruits measuring up to 15 cm (6 inches) long.

Kapok is a moisture-resistant, quick-drying, resilient, and buoyant fibre. The fibres contain both lignin, a woody plant substance, and cellulose, a carbohydrate. The inelastic fibre, or floss, is too brittle for spinning, but it weighs only oneeighth as much as cotton. The floss has been used in life preservers and other water-safety equipment, supporting as much as 30 times its own weight in water. Buoyancy is lost slowly, with one test showing only 10 percent loss after 30 days of water immersion. Kapok is also used as stuffing for pillows, mattresses, and upholstery, as insulation material, and as a substitute for absorbent cotton in surgery.

May 2020 ISRAEL AND THE EARTH If we want to transcend from what we know to be Christian living, into Kingdom living, the transition is determined by our willingness to submit our way of “seeing and reasoning”, to His ways.

Simon Hemsley

While we find ourselves in the midst of a global crisis, there are many observations that could and should be made about the state of the world, the Church and Christians across the world. I write this note, with insights that have been gathered over time in my own journey with God, meditating on certain truths and dealing with how those truths conflict with my cultural paradigms and simply, my own personal desire for the life I wanted to live. I’ve gleaned some insight from my own personal misalignment. Realizing that there has been a part of me that was closed to the whole will of God and the order in which He builds. So, I have to pose the question, “What would shut me down to how God builds and appropriates His will on the earth and how could someone who loves God also resist God at the same time?” I’ve learnt that we are all born into a particular world view, which comes with a certain perception. Perception speaks of seeing and reasoning working together, to help us order information in the right place according to the world view we have inherited. This is where we get the order of things all wrong. As our minds are renewed, we are effectively putting off an old-world view for a new kingdom-world view.

mel@ukaa.africa |

In these days, with the onset of a global pandemic, the world has been made to be a very small place. In one day, I am involved in meetings with believers in China (the far east) and sometimes, in the same meeting, with believers in the United States (the west) and very often there are African and European nations represented in the same meeting too. I tell you this to say, that the voice of God is being heard in the same way all over the world and we have been pulled out of our local church (small town) mentality into a Kingdom reality. Suddenly what the Lord is doing on a global scale is evident, and He is calling us all to be aligned to His will and His ways! The words, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”, carry the correct gravitas as we see the need for God’s Kingdom reality to be established across the earth. To have our minds aligned to the mind of God is of great importance if we are to be called in these days. Our shared context in a new era brings with it a caution, that we should not be building according to our own will or according to how we “see and reason”. In my journey of understanding Israel’s central place in God’s redemptive plan for all of humanity, I have come to realize how there has been too much building of the church according to our own blue prints and practicing faith in a way that does not offend our own world view. The local church paradigm on its own is quickly becoming irrelevant and lacking in power and authority. We might have an audience, but we are not able to impact change in them. The Apostle Peter uses language in his second letter that likens the establishing of the church to a building project. In fact, he calls us the spiritual temple that is being

built and he calls Jesus the corner stone of that project, the stone that determines the correct lines to build upon. Firstly, if the build does not follow the right lines, the building will not be according to God’s design and it is likely that it will remain unfinished. The days of building as we want, according to our own “seeing and reasoning” are coming to an end. Being in alignment to the will of God, according to the order of God, is no longer an option but a necessity. Israel is the first step to divine alignment. To acknowledge Israel as the root or the beginning of God’s redemptive story for all humanity, is the beginning of our alignment or submission of our paradigms (world views) to the mind and the will of God. Israel’s history is one single pathway to Jesus the Messiah. To reject or diminish Israel’s central place in the story of God and humanity, is to dis-appreciate or NOT AGREE with God’s redemptive and sovereign plan, which of course includes you! To reject or diminish Israel’s central place in this story, is to choose to build along a different building line. In fact, it is to make a stand of disagreement, not around a lesser issue, but around the very origins of God’s redemptive story. Building in disagreement is the road to certain disappointment.If we have found the freedom to choose our own building lines, in the rejection of a most central truth, what other more minor misalignments have we embraced in our freedom to build our own way, according to our own “seeing and reasoning”, while creating our preferred order of things. Could this be the root to the modern contemporary Church’s struggle to have Jesus be the supreme priority of our lives? However, to bless Israel, is a posture of acceptance that leads to action. It is to be in agreement with God’s sovereign design of a plan to redeem all nations through this

one nation! 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonours you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12 is about finding His blessing plan for the nations, posturing ourselves under the supply of heaven, that is the supply of all things spiritual and all things practical. Isn’t it interesting that blessing and supply are embedded at the beginning of our story? Genesis 12 again offers us the opportunity to find rigid agreement with the beginning of our redemptive story. If the first is blessed than so is the rest! Genesis 12 is a marker that keeps us surrendered to the mind and wisdom of God and guards us from our inherited perceptions and reasonings. Genesis 12 pulls us back to an acceptance of the sovereign right of God, to love and have mercy on whom He chooses. Genesis 12 anchors us not to the nation of Israel, but to the God of the nations. My full embrace of His first nation, is not based on my agreement with all that they do, but my agreement with all that He has done, and in turn, connects me to all that He is doing!

In these days, we have to war to hold our position in this order. The enemy does not want the body of Christ to find alignment with God’s plan for the nations. He doesn’t want you to be in agreement with what God has done, which puts you in line with what He is doing! The enemy also doesn’t mind that we are in great churches that are doing great things, as long as we remain unclear on what it means to be surrendered to the Kingdom view of the world. To surrender is to align and to align is to agree and to agree is to see the power of God return to those who believe. These certainly are the days in which believers must forgo their ways and their wills in exchange for His way and His will across the earth.

May 2020 TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

God has blessed Africa with an abundance of natural healing remedies within the natural plants and minerals that are on the continent. The wisdom of knowing which plants and minerals to use for different diseases and illnesses has been passed down from generation to generation. Natural traditional healers with this knowledge have provided an essential service on the continent way before western chemical based medication/pharmaceuticals were introduced.

The medicinal benefit that is in our plants and minerals is not something that belongs in the domain of witchcraft/spiritual darkness but belongs to the God of light and He has given it to us as a gift and we now need to retake this gift and restore it.

Sadly, the traditional aspects of natural based medication and healing in Africa have been demonised by being synonymously associated with witchcraft and spiritual forces of darkness that are in opposition to God. The pure aspects of traditional medicine are all about using the natural medicinal power that God has freely given in the plants and minerals and it is critical that this understanding be restored.

In the bible in the book of Revelation 22:1-

In days to come the ancient knowledge and wisdom of God’s natural medicinal healing will replace pharmaceutical chemical based disease/illness management.

2 it says -” Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”. Africa has been blessed with trees that carry the leaves of healing. That is part of our heritage as a continent.

Traditional Medicine is a major God given resource that we now need to harness for the benefit of Africa and the rest of the world as we recognise that God is the source of it. God is our healer and He has given us His medicine in what He has given us through His creation and we need to recognise that He is the source.

DIASPORA this world has portrayed as being spread across Africa. I am making this column in this newsletter my personal responsibility to ensure we share success stories of real Africans making a significant difference on mother earth and: • • • • Maria Engelbrecht

A diaspora is a scattered population whose origin lies in a separate geographic locale. Historically, the word diaspora was used to refer to the involuntary mass dispersion of a population from its indigenous territories, in particular the dispersion of Jewish people. This has since changed, and today there is no set definition of the term because its modern meaning has evolved over time. Some notable diasporas are the African diaspora including the descendants of those Africans who were mainly transported to the Americas during the African transatlantic slave trade

Fact: Whilst the United Nations estimate that there are currently 36.2 million African migrants living outside their countries of birth, the total scope of historically displaced Africans based on having heritage that binds them to Africa is estimated at 142 million according to Wikipedia. The rumor of many years is coming true! “Africa is Rising”, and Africa will be the “breadbasket of the world” in days to come. Even better news is that the generational curse has been broken! Africa and Africans have a second chance to stand up and stand strong no matter whether they were uprooted or not. Their DNA has a track record that supersedes the evil, darkness, unrighteousness and deceit

DIASPORA REVOLUTIONIZING 21st.CENTURY HEALTHCARE: Long before the invention of synthetic drugs and artificial foods, Dounne’s Afro-Caribbean ancestors relied solely on nature for their ‘food, cosmetics & medicine’ to maintain life-long health based on the universal Laws-of-Life (i.e. LOVE). Dounne (71) is a passionate believer in ‘Divine Purpose, Spiritual Consciousness and a strong advocate of Traditional Self Healing’; based on the ancient principle that ‘Natural Foods are meant to Feed & Heal.’ For over 30 years, she has been spearheading ‘traditional natural healthcare’ emphasizing the importance of healing mind, body & spirit through the provisions of nature; home cooking and the essential role it plays in maintaining overall ‘whole body’ health. In 1987, she established GRAMMA’S (an ethical herbal-food manufacturing business, named in her late grandmother’s loving memory), specifically to serve this purpose. In 1994, through spiritual guidance, Dounne discovered ‘The Missing Link’ in

the food chain which healed herself and family pet from terminal cancer and was the inspiration behind her Joining Hands In Health awareness campaign. In 2008, The Minister for Public Health finally approved her extraordinary herbal-product (Zara’s Herbal Tea) for use in hospitals and hospices. In 2009, she took up the quest to protect God’s healing foods from the clutches of the European Union, to safeguard and preserve natural healthcare for future generations. In November 2009, she was invited to personally present her case to the 700 members of the European Parliament in Brussels. And in 2015, she proved to be 60 years ahead of ‘Corporate Medical Science’ – with her extensive knowledge on the health benefits of the ‘true’ hot pepper.
