Yet God only sees one thing in Rio de Janeiro — the centrepiece of His crown of Glory for Brazil!
Brazil, for so many the epicentre of the football or soccer world — for others, the centre of carnival and both pure and carnal delights.
But God thinks . . . .
Hear the word of The LORD for Brazil in general, and for Rio de Janeiro in particular.
“Rio de Janeiro, capital of Brazil, you have long been the centre of My affection in your country.
You have been greatly blessed — more than any city on your entire continent — yet you have also slipped and slidden into the darkness of sinful living and ungodly cultures.
Yet I have maintained My Love for you, especially those who have remained faithful to My Word and to My Son.
So it is that I shall use you, Rio de Janeiro — My chosen city — to once again become a blessing to your nation, to South America, and to the world.
Your Intercessors and Prophets have long been on their knees before My Throne, and I have heard their Prayers.
My Bowls of Blessing and My Bowls of Judgement are full and ready to pour out.
But such is My Love and Mercy for you, that I will pour first My Bowls of Blessing upon you.
You have dug new Wells of Revival that are still to be released, yet you have bypassed old, stopped up wells that I AM opening once again.
My Living Waters and Holy Spirit Fire are about to be poured out over you to cover not just Rio de Janeiro and the surrounding areas, but the whole country and, indeed, the whole continent!
Yes, I AM releasing My Spirit over you and I shall begin in those places that have faithfully clung to Me through all the recent troubles, both political and health troubles.
You shall see these churches, many of them who seem insignificant, small Churches, birthing and carrying renewal, refreshing, and revival to themselves, their local area, their country, and from there to the world! Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and South America shall be seen as a blessed land!
The opposition shall be great, but I AM releasing a heavenly army to fight with you and for you.
Diseases not seen before shall be brought to your shores — corruption shall not cease — brother will war against brother as division is sowed among you.
Keep your focus and attention upon Me”, says The LORD, “and I shall lead you through this season.
Even so, you shall see persecution and injustice, but My Hand shall be on you as many, who are even now seeking the truth, SHALL BE SAVED!”
This is a Word from The LORD for Rio de Janeiro and for Brazil.
