On Friday March 25, 2016, the President of South Africa Mr Jacob Zuma attended the heretical Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) “Good Friday prayer” at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. It appears that Zuma is not a member of the UCKG and it would further appear that his attendance was one for electioneering purposes as the 2016 Municipal Elections are coming up.
Firstly, we will look at the news article as it is online and then secondly, we will dissect Zuma’s unbiblical rhetoric and finally, his anti-Christian unbiblical abominable slurs against Christianity and our Lord Jesus Christ as he blasphemes the Gospel of GOD.
Firstly, here is the news article:
Pray for us as leaders – Zuma
2016-03-25 13:50 – Karabo Ngoepe, News24
Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma on Friday called on Christians to pray for politicians, as the devil was trying to interfere with their work.
“We are here to get blessings and prayers. We want you to pray for us as leaders so that when we make mistakes, you can ask God to forgive us because Satan is always around trying to derail us,” he told thousands of members of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg.
The country was faced with crime and drug abuse and prayers were needed to help fight these problems.
Zuma arrived to applause and cheering as he walked around the stadium. Thousands of people waved at him and Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane as his theme song “Yinde le ndlela” (The Road is Still Long) played in the background. Others in the stadium joined in the singing.
He hugged one child, to the mother’s excitement.
“We need love,” he told the crowd.
“We must love God and those who have been entrusted to do his work. On this day, when we remember Jesus, we also ask those in charge to pray for us,” he said in IsiZulu.
He called on the congregants to pray for Members of Parliament so they could behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner.
He professed his love for the church and said the atmosphere in the stadium made him want to attend church regularly.
People were made in the image of God and had rights that should be protected and respected, he said.
Secondly, in the above article Zuma states that “We are here to get blessings and prayers.” At the outset, the President and his party were not there to worship the Lord Jesus Christ, and neither were the UCKG congregants. One of many reasons to start off with: Why was Zuma’s theme song “Yinde le ndlela” (The Road is Still Long) playing in the background when he arrived? At an “Easter gathering” a man was being praised and not the Lord Jesus Christ! This is idolatry and wickedness!
With the ANC history of maladministration, fraud, corruption, theft and ungodly rule with abominable laws promulgated by the ruling government who rebel against the True GOD of Creation, it is more than “prayers for mistakes” that Zuma and the ANC need! It is not mistakes, but wicked sin that has been committed that Zuma and his party need to repent from! Christian prayers should be for their repentance toward GOD and their faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ (see Acts 20:21). Yes, Satan does seek out who he can devour (Zuma says “derail”), but it is the born again regenerated believers and not the unregenerated sinners who the apostle Peter speaks of, for it is written,
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. ~ 1 Peter 5:8
The sins being committed in parliament are as a result of one’s personal “own lust” and they need to own up and accept their own personal sinful actions, for it is written,
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. ~ James 1:14,15
Unregenerated sinners who rebel continuously against GOD with their wicked deeds are children of the devil, as we read, for it is written,
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. ~ 1 John 3:8-10
With regards to Zuma’s statement regarding the members of parliament who are to “behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner”, they will only be able to do so if they are born again of the Holy Spirit, which is from above and not by man’s devices. Ubuntu, Batho Pele and other man made works of self-righteousness will always come short of GOD’s holy and perfect standard. As before quoted, to “behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner”, their first priority to please GOD in good governance would be found in the Christian principles recorded in Scripture, for it is written,
22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. ~ Colossians 3:22-25
Therefore, all parliamentary work should be to please the Lord “for ye serve the Lord Christ” and that is if you are born again. For this is confirmed in Scripture, for it is written,
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:12-16
All this starts with repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and the ANC government should show they are committed to the ways of GOD by repenting of the abominable laws they have promulgated through parliament since 1994 to present. Government should not think that GOD will bless South Africa whilst there is present lawlessness, which is sin, for he that transgresses GOD’s law sins (see 1 John 3:4). The lawlessness which we speak of is practiced through the legislation of the land with the legalisation of abortion (which is murder of the unborn), homosexuality and sodomy, pornography, gambling, redefining GOD’s marriage laws by wicked men, racist legislation that discriminates against ‘white-males’ in business and in sport, and religious idolatry by removing the One True GOD from the schools, the universities, the law courts and parliament through Marxist-atheistic evolution and the systematic indoctrination of the masses keeping them in bondage from knowing the Truth – for Jesus Christ is Truth! This also includes the worship of ancestors as ‘mediators’ when GOD’s Word clearly states that there is only one mediator between GOD and men, for it is written,
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. ~ 1 Timothy 2:5,6
The amadlozi (ancestors) do not speak to GOD on behalf of Africans on earth, as President Jacob Zuma and many other parliamentarians believe as well as their supporters and voters do, too. It is brazenly spoken by them that it is their African traditions and customs and they cannot turn from those practices. GOD’s Word rebukes this belief when His Son Jesus Christ says, “. . . Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Matthew 15:6b). And, “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” (Mark 7:13). For in Deuteronomy 18 we also read that it is forbidden for people on earth to speak or consult with dead people in acts of necromancy, nor are they to consult with sangomas (witchdoctors), as we read, for it is written,
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. ~ Deuteronomy 18:10-12
You cannot mix the profane (sinful wicked behaviour) with that which is Holy and belongs entirely to GOD! This is the unholy, abominable and wicked practices that takes place amongst many of the African Traditionalist Churches. Scripture tells us,
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: ~ Hebrews 12:14
Which brings us to the final issues that clearly shows that President Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma – even though his religious background is listed as Protestantism according to Wikipedia – does not fear GOD, but teaches falsehood with his blasphemous statements taking scripture out of context, twisting scripture and teaching doctrines of devils (see 1 Timothy 4:1) to the gullible and deceived masses. Zuma is perverting the gospel of Christ (see Galatians 1:6,7) which renders Zuma being “accursed” (see Galatians 1:8,9). He has publically ‘preached deception’ as can be read from the public media hereunder.
If Zuma was a ‘Christian’ his life would be decidedly different in the public arena. He is a polygamist with four ‘wives’ and who also has a history of adulterous fornication (sex outside the bounds of marriage). It is estimated that he has fathered +20 children. He raised a further moral scandal when he was charged in 2005 with raping an HIV-positive 31 year-old woman whilst not using a condom and then stated in court that he took a shower afterwards to “cut the risk of contracting HIV.” This statement was condemned by the judge, health experts, and AIDS activists. He was acquitted of the rape charge. He has also been dogged with many fraud and corruption charges against him which may still be brought before the courts, and just recently he and the National Assembly were found guilty in March 2016 by the Constitutional Court of South Africa for failing to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, in respect of his R248 million Nkandla upgrade saga – subsequently Zuma has to pay back tax-payers’ money, which amount is still to be determined within 60 days from the ConCourt ruling and the final repayment is to be made within 45 days thereafter.
Now, hereunder are the previous media reports where Jacob Zuma openly blasphemes the Gospel of GOD:
On May 5, 2008, Zuma said in an article titled ‘ANC to rule until Jesus comes back’, quote:
“We shall build this organisation. Even God expects us to rule this country because we are the only organisation which was blessed by pastors when it was formed.
“It is even blessed in Heaven. That is why we will rule until Jesus comes back. We should not allow anyone to govern our city (Cape Town) when we are ruling the country,” he said.

On February 7, 2011, Zuma blasphemed salvation through Jesus Christ alone (see John 14:6) by saying a vote for the ANC guarantees you entry into heaven. The article can be read at Churches to seek meeting with Zuma over ‘blasphemy’ (News24) and Outrage at Zuma’s promises of heaven (Mail & Guardian), quote:
Zuma, who also heads the ruling ANC, reportedly told party supporters in Mthatha: “When you vote for the ANC, you are also choosing to go to heaven. When you don’t vote for the ANC you should know that you are choosing that man who carries a fork . . . who cooks people.
“When you are carrying an ANC membership card, you are blessed. When you get up there, there are different cards used but when you have an ANC card, you will be let through to go to heaven.”
On December 21, 2011, Jacob Zuma was reported in an article titled Jacob Zuma blames Christianity for South Africa’s problems, quote:
Mr Zuma, South Africa’s first Zulu president, told an event in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal that Christianity brought about “orphans” and “old-age homes” thereby destroying Africa’s traditions, according to South Africa’s Times newspaper.
“As Africans, long before the arrival of religion and [the] gospel, we had our own ways of doing things,” he said.
“Those were times that the religious people refer to as dark days but we know that, during those times, there were no orphans or old-age homes. Christianity has brought along these things.”
Mr Zuma’s office later issued a statement saying that his comments had been reported in a “misleading manner” and were aimed at ensuring South Africans do not neglect African culture.
“While we should embrace western culture and Christianity, we should not neglect the African ways of doing things,” said Mac Maharaj, presidency spokesman.

In the same article reference is made to necromancy and also that he “was made an honorary pastor” which means absolutely nothing as his doctrine is man-centred heretical traditions and customs, quote:
During the ritual wedding the bride, Madiba, 38, was introduced to the elders and ancestors, two years after Mr Zuma, 69, paid the Ilobolo (dowry).
In 2007, Mr Zuma was made an honorary pastor at a meeting of independent charismatic churches.

On November 26, 2012, we read of Jacob Zuma calling on the ancestors to protect him in an act of necromancy and by slaughtering 12 cows, which is an abomination in the sight of GOD Almighty (see Deuteronomy 18:10-12 above). The article appears at Zuma calls on ancestors, quote:
KwaZulu-Natal – President Jacob Zuma, who faces mounting criticism and a strong attempt to remove him as ANC leader, has turned to his ancestors for help before Mangaung.
Zuma’s family slaughtered 12 cows and burnt traditional incense at his Nkandla homestead, at a ceremony in which Zulu warriors danced, sang songs and brandished traditional weapons.
ANC leaders were nowhere to be seen, but Zuma, in leopard skin, lifted his spear and danced as thousands prayed for him to win a second term as ANC president.
Inkosi Bheki Zuma gave him a Zulu shield and spear, and told him to use the weapons to protect himself from his ANC opponents.
. . .
The ceremony at Nkandla appeared to be a repeat of what Zuma did in the run-up to the 2007 Polokwane conference, when he visited King Goodwill Zwelithini to get his blessing. The meat, cooked on a fire, was dished out to guests, who also enjoyed traditional beer.
“We are here to give our father a send-off to Mangaung. With this ceremony we are now sure he is protected and he will come back to celebrate with us,” said Nomthandazo Zuma.
Buses transported family members and relatives from around KZN. The ceremony started at the homestead of the Nxamalala clan’s Bheki Zuma, where traditional incense was burnt, a symbol of communicating with the ancestors. Zuma then led armed warriors to his old homestead, Entembeni.
The ceremony ended in his luxurious homestead, where his brother Michael and other elders continued to talk to the ancestors. Michael gave a rundown of Zuma’s credentials as a freedom fighter who had spent time in prison and in exile. Towards the end of the ceremony, Zuma’s son Edward instructed police and bodyguards to escort journalists, including those from The Mercury, out of his homestead.
“Who invited you? Who told you to come here?” he asked.

On October 7, 2013, IOL reported in Zuma in new government, religion row, quote:
Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma on Sunday walked a controversial tightrope between invoking God for his administration and the official oath of office in which politicians in government pledge to do their job “so help me God”.
At a church service in Giyani, Limpopo, on Sunday, Zuma told members of the 33rd Presbyterian Synod to pray for the government – and for politicians who insulted each other.
“Whether we like it or not, God has made a connection between the government and the church. That’s why He says you, as a church, should pray for it,” Zuma, who spoke in Zulu throughout, is quoted as saying.
“Because if you allow them to insult those in authority, you are creating a society that is angry with itself.”

On January 6, 2014, it was reported that Jacob Zuma was joining with the Roman Catholic Church to re-translate the Bible into isiZulu as can be read at this article Zuma contributes to Zulu bible translation (2014 report 1), Zuma pays up for new Zulu Bible (2014 report 2) and Zuma foundation to co-sponsor Zulu bible translation (repeat report in 2015), quote:
Durban – The Jacob Zuma Foundation has teamed up with the Roman Catholic Church to translate the original Greek and Hebrew bible to IsiZulu, The Mercury reported on Monday.
The project was expected to take at least three years to ensure accuracy and no omissions as happened when it was translated from English.
President Jacob Zuma donated R500 000 on Sunday on behalf of the foundation. The project would be headed by Bishop Mlungisi Dlungwane of Mariannhill in KwaZulu-Natal.
Zuma applauded the 32 people who would undertake the task, saying it would change people’s lives, the paper reported.
“The bible is a holy book. That is why believers should get the gist of it as it is, and it needs to be translated properly,” Zuma was quoted as saying.
“Zulu should not climb on top of other languages, but what is written should be translated directly from that language into Zulu.”
He encouraged business people to contribute to the project.
On January 9, 2014, Jacob Zuma says he used witchcraft in this MailOnline article South African president Zuma reveals he used to practice witchcraft against white people.
On September 1, 2014, in CP WORLD’s post titled South Africa President Zuma Asks God to Come Down and Cleanse People Before Second Coming, it is reported, quote:
South African President Jacob Zuma has speculated on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, calling on God to come down for a few years and “cleanse” people from their sins even before He fully returns.
“But this time not to fetch us, but just to come and cleanse us of our sins, because we have caused more damage than before,” Zuma said during a meeting with ambassadors and commissioners in Pretoria on Sunday, SAPA reported.
“He must just come for a few years to help us so that we are ready for when he finally comes.”
~ The Christian Post
In a December 28, 2014, News24 article Zuma calls for a speedy Second Coming, it is reported, quote:
Durban – Addressing a group of elderly people at a Christmas gathering at his Nkandla homestead, President Jacob Zuma called on Christian priests to pray to God to send Jesus back to Earth because of the many sins in the country.
According to the Sunday Times, Zuma had been speaking off the cuff on Saturday and claimed there were many churches in the country “sinning too much”.
“The sins we have today are more than those that Jesus came to salvage. I ask the priests to ask God to send His son to come back again to cleanse our sins,” he said.
“He [God] must send him [Jesus] again. This time we won’t crucify him,” he added.
On January 18, 2015, we read in an article Zuma gets church’s highest honour from the Greek Orthodox Church, quote:
Pretoria – The Pope and Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church of Alexandria and All Africa: Theodoris II on Sunday bestowed President Jacob Zuma with the highest honour the church can give to a foreign national.
Paying a courtesy call to Zuma while doing church work, Theodoris II bestowed Zuma with the Order of Saint Mark.
“With this I give you great blessing,” Theodoris II said speaking through an interpreter as he handed Zuma a personal cross and a certificate.
Zuma embraced Theodoris II and his delegation and said the gesture was unexpected.
“Thank you very much for this honour. I thought it was just a visit. I did not know that there was a surprise,” Zuma said.
As can be seen by Zuma’s fruit, he is not a born-again believing Christian, but a lost soul, an ecumenical heretic that sides with the apostate churches. GOD’s Word gives stern warnings, as it is written,
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. ~ Isaiah 5:20-25
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. ~ Psalms 9:16,17
