Arise and shine, Africa, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee! This is the message written by the Holy Spirit from Isaiah 60:1 in the hearts of thousands of indigenous Africans and descendants from Africa today, and as it reverberates throughout the world, many have come to realize the special role that Africa is to play as the Risen Star in the 21st century. Africa, through the Church of Jesus Christ, is taking its rightful place on the global stage, and will emerge as the global leader in the management of world affairs. The continent has been characterized by hunger, civil wars, ethnic clashes, environmental degradation, negative exploitation of natural resources, abuse of cultural values, abuse of human rights, lack of information, poor economic bases, and lack of proper governance. But never again shall be called the “Dark Continent”! This is where Afro-Vision comes in.
