How God Called This Prophet From a Drug Den to the Pulpit

(Leon du Preez Facebook)

I'll never forget the day of my salvation—a 17-year-old drug addict, confronted by the unparalleled supernatural power of God while in a drug den. Immediately set free, I was mandated to take that encounter to this generation. At that precise moment, God began to introduce me to my prophetic call.

Within a few days, the Lord physically visited me in my bedroom and revealed His call upon my life. This was where my journey and the making of a prophet began.

Now, 18 years later, everything God showed me in visions has become my reality. At the time of my salvation, I lived in a car and spent my days on the streets without money or a job, but I remained completely in love with Jesus.

Today, we have seen millions touched by the power of God through our broadcasting ministry. We have traveled to various continents for revival crusades and prophetic conferences, establishing the body of Christ. We pioneered the birth of Encounter Churches in South Africa and the United States, seeing rapid growth in the planting of multiple campuses, with over 1,200 members in three years.

By His grace, the Lord began to increase my authority and influence to become a sought-after minister of the gospel, moving in revival and the prophetic. Our conferences frequently welcome international visitors and prominent individuals who travel across the world to receive prophetic direction and impartation, under an atmosphere of open heavens.

Throughout my years of ministry—especially prophetic ministry—I began to understand the certain realms in which those who occupy the "office of the prophet" would prophesy.

I believe this is crucial for the current modern-day prophetic movement.

These prophets would usually prophesy with greater accuracy, authority, revelation, direction, impartation and activation.
