Evangelism at the United vs Chippa Match, 2016/17

9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 
10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 
11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ~ Philippians 2:9-11

This praise report is solely for GOD’s glory alone and that no attention be directed our-way! “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). On Tuesday 29th November 2016, Jono and Gary attended at the PSL football match between Maritzburg United and Chippa United that took place at the Harry Gwala Stadium. We arrived after 17H30.

A new sound system for the ministry All praise and thanksgiving be to YEHOVAH our Creator GOD Who blessed us with a sound system that pumped out the clarion call of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ! No doubt, many heard the call to repentance and the way of salvation far and wide. On a cool sprinkling (mist) rain evening the Gospel was declared and many Gospel tracts were handed out, both in the isiZulu and English languages. Some were taken and then discarded on the ground. In this sinful generation,

18  There is no fear of God before their eyes. ~ Romans 3:18

Whilst unrepentant sinners do not fear GOD, we remind them what our Lord Jesus Christ said concerning Who one A clarion call to repentanceshould fear, not those who can only kill the body,

5  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. ~ Luke 12:5

Salvation is of GOD and unless He draws them they will never understand,

10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. ~ Proverb 9:10 

Our prayers are that GOD will show mercy and save wretched souls for His glory, as we read,

44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. ~ John 6:44

65  And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. ~ John 6:65

Jono speaking in isiZulu Jono speaking in isiZulu We were pleasantly surprised that a young African youth came to our assistance and helped us by regulating the sound for us at the outset. We were also encouraged by ‘others’ thanking us for the preaching. All glory to GOD!

Proclaiming Christ Jesus We have also noticed that a lot of alcohol is being publically consumed before matches and some spectators are already ‘drunk as a skunk’ by the time they enter the stadium. Surely they cannot enjoy the game in that condition? I can speak from ‘experience’ as I too once walked in their shoes in my wretched past – But by the grace of GOD! There is hope, and I testify to the goodness of GOD in this regard,

9  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 
10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 
11  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. ~ 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

A 'mixed-up' Orlando Pirates supporter! Just as we were packing up around a quarter-to-eight, or so, this woman arrived who had escorted some children into the stadium. After taking this photograph she spoke . . . i was so shocked i exclaimed “It’s a man!” to much laughter from some standing nearby. However, this is no laughing matter when one considers the above Scripture that he was dressed as “effeminate” and his ‘outfit’ had all sculls on it! Very sad and wicked! The things people do for fun! Honestly, I think “he” was two-weeks too early for the Orlando Pirates match . . .

Kindly keep us in prayer for our next PSL football outreach, Lord willing, at the Harry Gwala Stadium’s South Gate, being on Tuesday evening 13th December, 2016 from 17:30 – 19:30
