The word of God coming to the world in the last days through Africa is a weighty topic as there is so much to write about. The introduction on this subject was done in the scriptural overview at https://gospelofgod.church/web/scripture.php However, this article focuses on a monument in city center of Nairobi (in Kenya). It is called the Galton Fenzi Memorial. For the prophet Isaiah says: “in that day there shall be an altar in the midst of Egypt (or Africa) and a stone pillar (or monument) near the border” (Isaiah19:19).
At this point, one may be prompted to ask, what does Galton have to do with the word of God? As apostles were sent to Kenya, they were asked to look for this monument. It has a secular history as it was erected to honor Galton who pioneered many of the highways in Kenya – a country that had known railway and non-motorized road transport since roads between towns barely existed.
Beyond that immediate history, there is a greater spiritual significance. On top of the cubical base there is a sphere or globe with inscriptions of the sun, moon and stars on it. On the eastern side there is a Bible verse inscribed: “And a highway shall be there” (Isaiah 35:8). This is the same highway described in Isaiah 19:23 connecting Egypt (Africa) to Assyria and Israel in the Middle East. In reality it is not just a physical highway as Isaiah calls it the road of holiness. It is seen stretching from Egypt or Africa to Assyria and Israel in the Middle East.
The sun, moon, and stars inscribed therein are all symbols of the LORD’s presence. Thus this is the mentioned monument to the LORD. Revelations tell us that stars are representative of angels. Revelations 1:20says that the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches. The same idea is clarified in Revelations 12 where the dragon (or devil) brought down a third of the stars or angels from heaven (Revelations 12:4, 12:9). What then does the sun represent? Since the angels are sons of God, from a spiritual perspective their father would be a superior light – which is the sun.
The childhood dream of Joseph the dreamer explains it more vividly. In Genesis 37:9, Joseph had a dream where the sun, moon and eleven stars bowed down to him. The eleven stars were his brothers and the sun was their father. Finally, the moon was depicted as his mother. In the current covenant this is representative of the House of Covenant which has nuns or church sisters as they would be called in English, but they are called mothers or amai in Shona language – the original language of the church. Where mother or Mai is a honorary title. Therefore, this house of covenant is the altar Isaiah talked about. It is located in the midst of Egypt(Africa), or in Nairobi the location that was designated by the founder. The monument is also in the same city. Isaiah explains that it is near the border. The equator is the one line that divided the continent into two hemispheres –long before state boundaries were established, it was depicted on the oldest maps. The significance of the equator in this dispensation can be seen in the travels of the messenger from Zimbabwe down to Port Elizabeth and Cape Town (in South Africa), and eventually stopping only a stone’s throw to the equator in Nyahururu (in Kenya) - honoring the boundary that God had given him while handing over to his apostles to continue northward. Consequently, the equator is the boundary near the monument.
Taking a closer look, one will notice that there are two suns on the globe. There is one rising on the southern side, and another shining over the northern side. The two hemispheres separated by a line midway depicting the equator. It is common knowledge that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Whoever constructed the monument was well versed with geography – distances and even directions – which are labeled on all four sides. This a further proof that the sun depicted is not the sun that crosses the earth’s skies every day. This is clearly a depiction of the word of God that descended in the south and is moving to the north. In short the drawing mirrors the verse inscribed “and a highway shall be there” (Isaiah 35:8) – which is a continuation of Isaiah Chapter 19.
