Nelson Mandela Day 2011

Yet another year has gone by and the world has another day set aside calling on the masses to unite and do “67 minutes” of goodwill to your neighbour. While we are called upon to give of our time and resources for this so-called international day, this is nothing more than a farce and a lie to the people of this world. It is not surprising that the masses are so blinded by this farce – should we not be following the two greatest commandments given by God Almighty? Why will people give only “67 minutes” of their time and then think they have done their part for humanity. Have you not read the Holy Word of God in the Bible?

35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. ~ Matthew 22:35-40 

So if theses two commandments encompass the law and the prophets and Scripture tells us that Jesus said during His greatest discourse during the Sermon on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem in Israel – the country the Islamic Arab countries hate (not love) so much – 

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. ~ Matthew 5:17-19 

Surely there are differing standards here. God says one thing in His law and by His prophets, and man follows an evil and wicked sub-standard form of his own making and choosing, a despicable and abominable set of rules – known as man’s traditions, commandments and customs. Here are the accusations that the Word of God brings against man and His ways:

1Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. ~ Matthew 15:1-9

8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. ~ Colossians 2:8

15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: ~ 1Peter 15-19 

Man has made an idol out of Mr Nelson Mandela, bowing down to him, that he is seen as an icon, as a god. This is an abomination in the sight of Almighty God who calls this idolatry. There are millions upon millions of people who sing praises, honour and worship to Mr Mandela, but do not sing praises, honour or worship to God their Creator. God has given a stern warning in Scripture to those who are ungodly and unrighteous and who hold the truth in unrighteousness, as can be read: 

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. ~ Romans 1:18-23 

The very person who man venerates is the same person who was the commander of the Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation or MK) who killed soft targets (civilians) during the so-called struggle against Apartheid and he is the same person – a man – who refused to apologise for his atrocities against ‘innocent’ bystanders during the guerrilla warfare waged as a terrorist. It appears to be documented that Mr Mandela, himself, did not kill anyone, but he was the one who issued the orders – that makes him an accessory to the act (crime) and the blood is upon his hands, too. The USA had Mr Mandela and the ANC listed as Terrorists and yet they are treated with ‘kids-gloves’ compared to the other Terrorist Organizations in the Arab-Islamic world. It also shows the double standards of man, when all Terrorists should be condemned for their evil, wicked and debauched behaviour. This is also the same man who passed into law, as the President of the Republic of South Africa, the Choice of Termination of Pregnancy Act No. 92 of 1996 which is the ‘Abortion Act’ which is murder. To date more than a million children have been butchered and murdered in their mothers’ wombs, often in back street ‘butcher shops’, often at state owned clinics with taxpayers’ money. Those who have no voice have a few Christians standing against these atrocities that prevail again during peace time. 

Mr Nelson Mandela, if you really want to be seen as a person that stands for ‘true peace’, rescind the Choice of Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1996 and call all other nations to do likewise, confess your sins to your Creator God Almighty and believe upon the Name of Jesus Christ. You will, God willing, be 93 years of age and who is fast approaching eternity. Repent of your sins before you do pass on into eternity. This is the mercy and justice of God: 

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. ~ John 3:16-18

33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. ~ John 3:33-36

    In 1961, Mandela became the leader of the ANC’s armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (translated as Spear of the Nation, also abbreviated as MK), which he co-founded. He coordinated a sabotage campaign against military and government targets, and made plans for a possible guerrilla war if sabotage failed to end apartheid. A few decades later, MK did wage a guerrilla war against the regime, especially during the 1980s, in which many civilians were killed. Mandela also raised funds for MK abroad, and arranged for paramilitary training, visiting various African governments.
    Mandela explains the move to embark on armed struggle as a last resort, when increasing repression and violence from the state convinced him that many years of non-violent protest against apartheid had achieved nothing and could not succeed.[6][2]
    Mandela later admitted that the ANC, in its struggle against apartheid, also violated human rights, and has sharply criticised attempts by parts of his party to remove statements supporting this fact from the reports of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.[7]

  • Terrorism, in the modern sense,[1] is violence, the threat of violence, or other harmful acts committed for political or ideological goals.[2] Most definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a lone attack), and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians). Many definitions also include only acts of unlawful violence.
