Some observers believe that Islamists in Khartoum supported and funded by the Arab world consider South Sudan the “gateway” to the Islamization and Arabization of all of Africa.
Song of Solomon 7:13 (New King James Version)
The mandrakes give off a fragrance,
And at our gates are pleasant fruits,
All manner, new and old,
Which I have laid up for you, my beloved.
We claim the Blood of the Lamb over the lintel and side posts of the spiritual gateways to Southern Sudan. She is Your beloved. Let death pass her by.
We proclaim the fruit of Your Holy Spirit at the spiritual gateways–pleasant fruits, all manner, new and old. Let there be a profusion of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
We call on the wind of Your Holy Spirit to continuously blow the fragrance of new life over every spiritual gate. New life! New life! New life! New life! Amen.
