The Mandelas, the ancestors and a nation going to Hell

130610Madiba46664jpgToday is twenty-seven days since the ex-president Mr Nelson Mandela was admitted to the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria on June 8, 2013. Over this period of time many news reports have been published in the local and international news-media, dealing with a wide range of issues, as the elder statesman lies in a critical condition. Sadly, whilst Nelson Mandela lies incapacitated there has been much contradictory reporting dealing with the absurd and heinous situations surrounding the exhuming and reburial of three predeceased children of Mandela, where their remains were previously removed without family consultation by Madiba’s grandson Mandla Mandela from the family gravesite at Qunu to the birthplace of his grandfather in Mvezo. The whole charade that is unfolding at this time, has become a family  feud that played out in a court in Mthatha, Eastern Cape and came to a conclusion where the remains were exhumed yesterday and will be reburied today.

Here are some of the press reports that make some wicked reading when one aligns them against the Holy Word of God.

The folly of all this is what has taken place over this period of time that goes against the commandments of God Almighty, when men have rather preceded with their traditions, customs and man made commandments that make the Word of God of none effect (see Mark 7:13), which includes the following, inter alia:

Consultations and pleadings by Mandela-clan elders with their ancestors. The One True God of Creation commands that no one is to be a necromancer, i.e. one who is a person that consults with and speaks to the dead (see Deuteronomy 18:11). We hear from God’s Word that,

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).

28-06-2013 - God and ancestors commentGod and ancestral worship, the Holy and the profane, respectively, do not mix – God has not given man a command to speak to ancestors. In fact he forbids speaking to the dead.

There have been inter-faith gatherings praying to millions of different gods in and through their religious beliefs and faiths, when God says you shall have no other gods before Me (see Exodus 20:3), you shall only worship Him in spirit and truth (see John 4:24) and in His way as he gives commandment throughout the Holy Scriptures. We have heard and seen on the news broadcasts and we have read in the newspapers that all these inter-faith religions – which incidentally is the ecumenical system of the Devil that is progressively ushering in the “One World Order” – are to come together and pray for Madiba’s health and recovery. From politicians to the men, women and children on the street, all have been praying and calling upon God, but sadly if you do not call upon Him in the name of His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (The Word), God manifest in flesh (John 1:1,2,14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 1 John 5:7),

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

then you are calling upon a false god. God turns away from listening to the prayers of the heathen unbelieving sinner.

Politicians and faith leaders have been encouraging the inter-faith prayer sessions contrary to what God’s Word says. The Lord Jesus Christ says, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6). And in John 8:24 the Lord Jesus Christ says, I said therefore unto you that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Prayers are being made to false gods and people do not even realise that they are condemned already because they have not believed on the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18), hence prayer is not made to the One and Only True God – Adonai! – but to evil spirits and wicked devils! The Lord Jesus Christ said, Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:14). That means the blind leaders are leading the blind “believers” straight to Hell. The Lord Jesus Christ also warns about many that are going straight to Hell (and ultimately will end up in the lake of fire – see Revelation 20:14,15) , as we read in Matthew 7:13-29 ~

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

Mat 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Mat 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Mat 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Mat 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

Mat 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

All we seem to hear at this time is how the comrade, the world icon has been a ‘blessing and inspiration’ to this nation and the international community at large. People have idolised Nelson Mandela and even at this critical time as eternity draws ever nearer the people groups continue to idolise him and worship the man, placing him on a pedestal, telling the youngsters of today to learn from him and be like him. Please do not aspire to be like Nelson Mandela or any man or woman for that matter. Satan the Devil is deceiving all those that will believe his lies. The following is what has been advocated by Nelson Mandela during his lifetime as historical evidence declares these things to be true. The proof is here for all to see:

  • Abortions. Choice of Termination of Pregnancy Act, No. 92 of 1996 violates the unborn child’s right to life as contained in the the Bill of Rights in Chapter 2, section 11 of the constitution. God says in Psalm 127:3  Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
  • The rights of Cultural, Religious [and linguistic] communities in terms of section 31 of the Bill of Rights which is enshrined in Chapter 2 of The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, No. 108 of 1996 – signed into law by the President Mr Nelson Mandela (Pres. of R.S.A. 1994-1999), the date of promulgation being 18th December 1996 – gives citizens cultural and religious rights whereby you can pray and speak to ancestors (a cultural right) and worship Satan (a religious right) which are BOTH forbidden by GOD ALMIGHTY! You can see the ungodly practices that are given to the citizens of South Africa and then you can understand that the end-part to the Preamble of the aforementioned constitution is blasphemy against a Holy God, which reads, quote:

    “May God protect our people. Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika. Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso. God seën Suid-Afrika. God bless South Africa. Mudzimu fhatutshedza Afurika. Hosi katekisa Afrika.”

  • Nelson Mandela was also the co-founder of the militant unit Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) in 1961 (source: Wikipedia) and was listed as a Terrorist by the CIA as recently as 2008. U.S. has Mandela on terrorist list. (USA Today quoted: “Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., chairman of the House International Relations Committee, is pushing a bill that would remove current and former ANC leaders from the watch lists. Supporters hope to get it passed before Mandela’s 90th birthday July 18.”) This is what The New York Times had to say about this.

This is the reason why I would not want my children or grandchildren, and for that matter no-one elses, to aspire after Mr Nelson Mandela. It is an abomination in the sight of a Holy God to be an abortionist, and an idolatrise terrorist. Add to the above list homosexuality which is now also safeguarded by the Civil Union Act, No. 17 of 2006 (SA legalises gay marriage).

28-06-2013 - Racism commentWhen the time comes for God Almighty to take Nelson Mandela into eternity he will not be in “heaven looking for the ANC party.” To quote Makaziwe from The Witness newspaper dated June 28, 2013, Madiba’s daughter said “her father had been unequivocal. He had repeatedly said that when he died he would look for the ANC branch in heaven and join it.” That is tantamount to blasphemy for true-believers in the Lord Jesus Christ will be worshipping before the Lamb, before the Throne of God Almighty. No man-made system, political party or ideology is found in Heaven. They are all found in Hell and will be cast into the lake of fire at Judgment Day, which is the second death (see Revelation 20:14).

O, I fear for the soul of South Africa’s ex-president Mr Nelson Mandela. I fear for the souls of his family and their ancestral worshipping clan. I fear for the souls of the idol worshipping nation that in idolatry worship at the altars of customs and traditions, religions and false gods, sports and recreation, politics and ideologies, education and careers, material wealth and possessions, and also the millions of “selfies” – those who love themselves in self-righteousness and their very lives revolve around, “Me, Myself, and I!” To put it in the eloquent words of Leonard Ravenhill: “Entertainment is the Devil’s substitute for joy.” Joy can only come through knowing the One True God, being redeemed of His Son Jesus Christ and being born-again of the Holy Spirit of God.

The indictment is clear from the Holy Scriptures in Romans 1:16-32 ~

Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Rom 1:20 For 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:

Rom 1:21 Because 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.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

If this government and nation were truly God-fearing they would live lives holy and pleasing before their Creator God. But this is contrary to what we see and experience in this land. This nation only calls upon “GOD” when they are experiencing great difficulties, or when a loved one is near death, or themselves, but why do you not live in the fear of a Holy God and keep His commandments during your every day lives? For you fear not the One and Only True and Great I AM THAT I AM GOD. The name “God” is used so flippantly and with such blasphemous contempt in the workplace, in schools, at pleasure and in the entertainment industry, and most definitely in false religious worship.

Today, is the day that you should repent towards the One True God, and have your faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ. This is surely your only hope to escape the second death of eternity in the lake of fire. Do not let God’s patience with wicked and evil people run out, when HE decides enough is enough! You will be in anguish being in torment in the flames. God Almighty is a consuming fire. Almighty God speaketh from Heaven this day through His Word:

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Heb 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Heb 12:4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Heb 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

Heb 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Heb 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

Heb 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Heb 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

Heb 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

Heb 12:17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Heb 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

Heb 12:19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

Heb 12:20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

Heb 12:21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

Heb 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

Heb 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Heb 12:25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Heb 12:27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

The Lord Jesus Christ awaits you to call on Him in faith. God is merciful. This is your only hope to escape eternal damnation. If God is speaing to you today, it is a good time to examine yourself by visiting www.NeedGod.com. But most of all pick up the King James Bible and read the True Word of God!

SOLI DEO GLORIA – I believe this is all in the Divine and Sovereign will of Almighty God – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, I AM THAT I AM (see Exodus 3:14).

A lesbian minister and the MCSA

NEWSFLASHES AND RHETORIC COMMENTS #2

Lesbian MinisterON Thursday June 27, 2013 an article appeared in The Witness newspaper under the title “Lesbian minister loses case against church”. This is the wicked state of man-made denominational organisations that call themselves “church.”

Firstly, we will look at the issue of a woman and her role in God’s Creation, and that God did not create a woman to be a lesbian and to have same-sex women relationships. The Holy Word of God – the Bible – says ~

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

And that they, that is the man and his wife, were to “… be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth …” (Genesis 1:28a) and further on we also read in Genesis 2:23-25 ~

Genesis 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman [Hebrew – Ishshah], because she was taken out of Man [Hebrew – Iysh].

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Genesis 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

This was in the garden of Eden before the fall of man where they sinned against God by eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Man + Woman in a covenant before God = Husband and Wife. We also read in Leviticus 20:13 that ~

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

This speaks of homosexuality, which also includes the lesbian act, for we read in Romans 1:18 ~

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

And in Romans 1 verses 24-27, we further read:

Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

God is clearly not happy with sodomites and lesbians, and although the South African government has passed a law for same-sex sexual relationships and marriages, this remains an abomination in the sight of God Almighty! It is no surprise that the marriage of Ecclesia de Lange to another woman ended in divorce. In fact, God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16) in heterosexual relationships so it is even worse for homosexual relationships which He declares as evil and wicked.

The apostle Paul writing to the Corinth Church also gives a stern warning in 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 about who would not inherit the kingdom of God, as we read ~

1 Corinthians 6:9 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,

1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The second issue in the article to be corrected relates to this ‘woman’ being a minister. The Word of God is clear that no woman in public worship is to teach, nor to usurp authority over [i.e. dominate] the man. We can read in 1 Timothy 2:11-15 ~

1 Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

1 Timothy 2:15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

We also read what the apostle Paul had to say to the ekklesia (congregation, assembly, Church) that gathered at Corinth ~

1 Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

1 Corinthians 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Clearly women are not given the role of teaching and preaching from the pulpit in public worship. There is no command given by the Lord Jesus Christ as the Living Word of God giving another command in this regard. God has a perfect order for all things, according to His good will and purpose as we read the order ordained by God ~

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

If de Lange was ordained by the Methodist Church of Southern Africa (MCSA) in 2006 to be a minister, both the MCSA and de Lange need to repent before God as they have violated God’s Holy Word in respect of who can be appointed bishops and elders (what the church calls ‘pastors’ and in the case of the MCSA ‘Reverends’). The qualifications of a bishop is recorded in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 ~

1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Timothy 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Timothy 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

1 Timothy 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Timothy 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

1 Timothy 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

The qualifying portions of the preceding Scriptures are “man” and “husband [Greek – anēr] of one wife [Greek – gunē]”, clearly a “woman” cannot be “the husband of one wife” according to God’s Word.

The ordained qualified elders in every city should fit the following description, as recorded in Titus 1:6-9 ~

Titus 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

Titus 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

The same criteria applies here as that of a bishop, a “man” who is “the husband [Greek – anēr] of one wife [Greek – gunē]”, clearly a “woman” cannot be “the husband of one wife” according to God’s Word.

In conclusion, it is shameful of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa who has “been deliberating on gay marriage for 13 years and had still not taken a decision.” The MCSA and its members either believes God’s Word or they reject it, and after “13 years” it is clear that their stance is on the latter. Shame on you, for what is there to deliberate on gay marriages? [No same-sex marriage rule in church – News24] – Take a stand against the evils of this wicked and spiritual adulteress generation. This is what the ecumenical church system looks like, it is a friend of the world which is an enemy of God (see James 4:4). It goes without saying: “You might have won a battle, but you are losing the war.” Repent this day before God Almighty!

Soli Deo Gloria

Indian floods, idol worship, and The Way to Salvation

On June 21, 2013 a catastrophe took place in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand (which is known as the ‘Land of the gods’ with Hindu shrines built high in the mountains) as can be seen by the photograph below of a submerged idol of the Hindu ‘lord’ Shiva which stands in the flooded River Ganges in Rishikesh. Monsoon torrential rains have caused widespread havoc in many villages and towns across northern India, leading to flash floods, cloudbursts, and mud landslides that have taken the lives of many inhabitants and devotees, and left scores of people isolated, stranded and destitute in this Himalayan region. Many have lost all they possessed. Destruction has come at a huge cost where many blame it on the greed of man, raping the countryside of trees and others have lost all due to their unwise actions of building their houses and other buildings on the flood-plains.

Shriva Flood 1

Here is an online article that shows the pain, suffering, loss of possessions, the devastation that prevailed and the loss of life and death that followed: MailOnline at the Daily Mail in the UK. Another report appears at this link today, June 29, 2013: Over 10,000 people killed in monsoon floods in N. India. The following quote appears at this latter link: “”More than 100,000 flood survivors, mostly Hindu pilgrims, have been rescued till date. People have been evacuated from many parts and rescue operations by the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force are now focused on those areas where still 4,000 people are stranded,” a senior government official said.”

Here is a short history of who this idolatrise god Shiva really is that can be found in part, as recorded here, at Wikipedia:

Shiva is considered the supreme deity, the ultimate source and goal by the Saivite sect. The Pashupati, Shaiva Siddhanta and some other sects view Shiva an equal to, or even greater than the Absolute (Brahman). Shiva’s character, unlike Vishnu is ‘ambivalent,’ as he can be a moral and paternal god, or a god of outsiders, of those outside the Brahmanical mainstream, worshipped in various ways. Several Tantric cults are also associated with Shiva.

In classical Hindu mythology Shiva is the god of destruction, generally portrayed as a yogin who lives on Mount Kailasa in the Himalayas. His body is smeared with ashes, his hair piled up in matted locks. He wears an animal skin and carries a trident. A cobra often serves as his garland and the crescent moon as his hair ornament. He has a third eye, kept closed in the middle of his forehead. He may be surrounded by his beautiful wife Parvati, and their two sons, the six-faced Skanda and the elephant-headed Ganesha.

This is a description of what the One True God Almighty, calls an abomination – evil and wicked. This ‘god of destruction’ is not a god that could save his Hindu devotees. Destruction came and he could not help. He was useless with calamity taking place around him. Here is a wonderful Story that God tells us in the Holy Bible where His prophet Elijah met with the idolatrise Baal worshippers, and shows His power, as it is written in 1 Kings 18:21-40 ~

1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

1 Kings 18:22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

1 Kings 18:23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:

1 Kings 18:24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

1 Kings 18:25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.

1 Kings 18:26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

1 Kings 18:27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

1 Kings 18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

1 Kings 18:29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

1 Kings 18:30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

1 Kings 18:31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:

1 Kings 18:32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.

1 Kings 18:33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.

1 Kings 18:34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.

1 King 18:35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

1 King 18:36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.

1 Kings 18:37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.

1 Kings 18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

1 Kings 18:39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.

1 Kings 18:40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

We also read of another account in Judges 10 where Israel has once again turned from serving and worshipping YHVH and turned to serving the idol gods of Baalim as we read, as it is written in verses 10-14 ~

Judges 10:10 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

Judges 10:11 And the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?

Judges 10:12 The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.

Judges 10:13 Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.

Judges 10:14 Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

Are you reading and hearing what God is saying. Whilst the loss of any life should be grieved we can learn from the Holy Word of God – in the Holy Bible – that the Creator of the world brings about judgment even in this present age to all who do not fear Him and who do commit heinous crime against Him by their doings. We read in Psalm 9:16 ~

Psalm 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

We learn much from God’s Word and how He dealt with His people Israel. When ever Israel revolted and rebelled against Adonai (God) in idolatry, God brought correction through Judgment. There is an ‘old saying’: “If you do not want to listen, then you must feel!” And feel Israel certainly did. But the lessons to be learnt is that God doesn’t just bring His Judgment against the Jew – He also brings Judgment against the Gentile – the common man that sins against Him. The Judgment against the Jew and Gentile in the Holy Scriptures is an ensample (example) of what will happen if we do not fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13,14). We should clarify a very important doctrine here. God disciplines and chastises those that belong to Him (Leviticus 26:27,28), those who believe upon His Son the Lord Jesus Christ as a loving Father who corrects and disciplines His children with chastening (Hebrews 12:6-8), but God judges with wrath the unbelieving heathen who rejects His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, who chooses to follow other gods and are friends of the world which disqualify themselves and make them enemies of God (James 4:4). That is why we are warned to flee from idols. This doctrine is also encapsulated in Jeremiah 10:24 where we should seek discipline in correction, but not by God’s wrath, as Matthew Henry records in his commentary, so eloquently: “If the Lord has directed our steps into the ways of peace and righteousness, let us entreat him to enable us to walk therein. Say not, Lord, do not correct me; but, Lord, do not correct me in anger. We may bear the smart of God’s rod, but we cannot bear the weight of his wrath.”

Here are further indictments against idol worship:

Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exodus 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Psalm 115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

Psalm 115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

Psalm 115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Psalm 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

Psalm 115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

Psalm 115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

Psalm 115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

Psalm 115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

This is the result when idol worshippers, who want to hold to their religious practises that go against God’s Word; then they become full of wrath, even murderous in their evil actions which is not the work of the One True God the Father, but the demonic work  of their father the Devil who wants people to worship gods and to rebel against the authority of their Creator God, as we read ~

Act 19:23 And the same time there arose no small stir about that way.

Act 19:24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen;

Act 19:25 Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth.

Act 19:26 Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:

Act 19:27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.

Act 19:28 And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.

We also read how God reveals His wrath from heaven in Romans 1:18-25 ~

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Romans 1:20 For 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:

Romans 1:21 Because 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.

Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Romans 1:23 And 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 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

God is Holy, Perfect, Righteous, Good, Sovereign, Just, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, the Ancient of days, the Truth and a Consuming Fire who will judge this world in righteousness. God commands us mere mortals to live perfect (Matthew 5:48) and holy (1 Peter 1:16) lives before Him in the fear of God (Ecclesiastes 12:13,14; Philippians 2:12; 1 Peter 1:17).

The only way of escaping God’s wrath on Judgment Day, is through repentance toward God, and our faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 20:21). It is only through the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ that a sinner can escape the wrath of God. Peace has to be restored between a Holy God and sinful man. Man made religions expect mankind to work and do religious practices before gods (idols) trying to work their way to being accepted, but the God of the Holy Bible has already done all to save His enemies from His wrath by offering His grace (unmerited favour) through faith (a gift of the Holy Spirit) being His gift (Ephesians 2:8,9) to sinners, that if they will be humbled by His Law (Galatians 3:24) and call upon the name of His Son Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) through repentance (the goodness of God – Romans 1:4) God will save you and in no wise cast you away, as we read as our Lord Jesus the Christ speaks ~

Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

If God Almighty is speaking to your heart now, call upon Him to save you. For that is the reason why our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified, died, buried and resurrected to life so that we too may have everlasting life. It comes at a cost. You must die to self and your religious works, and put your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone. REPENT of your sins today for that is your only hope.

Nelson Mandela and the Iconic man

130610Madiba46664jpgIt is with a grieved heart that we pen this article. It is day seventeen (17) since June 8, 2013, when ex-president of the Republic of South Africa Mr. Nelson Mandela was admitted to Mediclinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria for a recurring lung infection. The medical prognosis does not look good at all, in fact it looks very bleak even with all the professional medical practitioners at hand, whilst the presidential administration has also given us news that ‘Madiba’ now finds himself in a critical condition. An article that appeared in The Witness newspaper today reads: “Zuma: Madiba’s condition is critical”. Other press reports: “Zuma: Mandela remains in a critical condition” and “Presidency: Mandela in critical condition“.

Whilst the South African President Mr Jacob Zuma has called on the local and international communities to pray for Mandela, which we would understand that in this request it is for a “healthy recovery,” the question arises: How is that going to help? We need to see what God says about this!

Firstly, the tens of thousands upon thousands of religious groups, sects, cults, organisations, et al, do not all pray to the same God – NO! Not at all! This is confirmed and reflected in each of their religious practices, belief systems, ideologies and faiths that the gods of religion, to which the world over are requested to pray to, are not the One True God of Creation. ALMIGHTY GOD, YHVH, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob (Israel) is not the One True God that all will be praying to!

We also read of the One True God in Exodus 3:6; 6:2,3; as follows:

Exodus 3:6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

Exodus 6:2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:

Exodus 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

This is where the problem lies. God gave commandment that His creation should have no other gods before Him and that they are not to make any graven image in the likeness of things in the heaven, of things on the earth and of things under the earth, and they are not to worship and bow down to them – that would be gods in deity and idol form and image. This is the case throughout the world today with all these religious practices – idolatry prevails. It is also an abomination that not only will wicked and evil mankind adopt praying to these false gods thinking they are praying to the ecumenical ‘God’ – the TRUE God of Creation will not hear these blasphemous prayers, and in fact He will turn His ear from the babbling of the masses. Here is a clear indictment that God brings against His people when Israel did not want Him to rule them, but they wanted a king to rule them. In 1 Samuel 8:18 we read, as it is written in the Holy Scriptures which is God’s Word:

1 Samuel 8:18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

This is sadly the case what we have today where governments rule through presidents, prime ministers, monarchs, emissaries and the like, governed by man made customs, traditions, commandments, laws, statutes, edicts, acts and decrees, instead of living and abiding in the Commandments and the Way of GOD ALMIGHTY! You see, be it an individual or a people group, hear the Word of God you stiff-necked generation:

Jeremiah 7:16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.

Jeremiah 11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

Do not be blaspheming GOD ALMIGHTY with your ecumenical debauchery, for HE will not hear your pleas in prayer. You have been warned! You have done ill in your doings in the sight of God. You think by your much speaking you will be heard. Oh foolish generation of vipers. Let HIM speak:

Micah 3:4 Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

Secondly, you the worldly enemies of God have made Nelson Mandela an idol, an icon that has been worshipped and raised upon a pedestal, you have bowed to him and worshipped and revered him as a god. GOD ALMIGHTY has this to say to your idolatrise behaviour that not only includes the person of Nelson Mandela, but the graven images made by men’s hands fashioned out of gold, silver, stone, wood, plastic and many other materials:

2 Kings 17:8 And walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made.

2 Kings 17:9 And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

2 Kings 17:10 And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree:

2 Kings 17:11 And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger:

2 Kings 17:12 For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing.

2 Kings 17:13 Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

2 Kings 17:14 Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God.

Thirdly, whilst prayer can be made to the One True God in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for physical healing, this can only be done through the One mediator who makes intercession between God and men by the man Christ Jesus, as we read:

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

If one does not believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God and God in human form, then you are condemned already as we read, as it is written in the Holy Scriptures:

John 3:18 He 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 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Our prayers are to be first and foremost for the saving of the soul of a person. If God so wishes to heal a person physically according to HIS will and purpose, so be it! All Glory belongs to GOD ALMIGHTY and physical healings is not something mere mortals can demand of God. Whilst God can heal as HE pleases, we should be praying for God to grant HIS grace and save a soul. That is the greatest miracle any person can receive is receiving eternal life. As the Apostle Paul was speaking about true believers in God, we read in Romans 14:7-9 the following:

Romans 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Fourthly, if all religions, differ in their theology, customs, traditions and commandments, and have rejected GOD ALMIGHTY’s way which is bringing glory to and through HIS Son Jesus the Christ, be assured GOD ALMIGHTY does not hear your feeble attempts of trying to be heard with your much speech. In the end times, which we are clearly in, the ecumenism that prevails where all the man-made religious systems of the world that are controlled by the

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:5)

the whore of Babylon the Roman Catholic ‘mother church’ can not reach God as it is idolatrise before GOD ALMIGHTY and HE will not hear you. This is what we see continually on the SABC news that the popish men of the cloth are pushing their agenda to no avail on their part. God will be glorified even in the destruction of wicked men, women and children for every knee should bow and every tongue should confess Jesus Christ as Lord to the glory of God the Father:

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

We, my brother Lungisa Zondi and myself (Eastern Cape Mission and South Africa: Hilary Clinton pops in for lunch), have on a few occasions tried to have an audience with Nelson Mandela to make sure he understands the true Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to call him to repentance towards God and his faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ, as we are still aware that he needs to repent for the ungodly laws that he promulgated as the then President of South Africa, which includes acts that allow abortion, homosexuality (same-sex marriages – The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa guarantees equal protection before the law to all citizens regardless of sexual orientation) and idolatry (religious freedom). Mr Mandela, true repentance will show a brokenness over one’s sins and a recanting of past abominations. These are three abominations that are leading citizens of South Africa straight to hell should they die before Judgment Day and ultimately into the lake of fire. You have been forewarned. Here is a further indictment against South Africa and the world community at large:

Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

South Africa, Repent and Believe upon our Lord Jesus Christ – it is your only hope! Penduka!!

Answer to Blaque

Another comment that needs to be corrected appeared at “The Twelve Apostles’ Church in Christ HERESIES” (please read first) posted on August 15, 2012. The following comment from Blaque was received on June 16, 2013, quote:

“People like this Gary guy annoy me. I’m sure they are the ones that hate the idea that Jesus was a Black man and a human being. Born again con artists! U clearly have a problem and u hate Nongqunga. If its not zcc or Shembe nw its Tacc. Please leave people alone. There are many other religions why not address them. U have issues with anythng that has to with black people especialy if respects and acknowledges ancestors. Hayi Gary leave us alone with your “interpretation”.”

Repent and Believe South Africa ministries respond as follows:

Dear Blaque

Thank you for this comment. It is a shame that you are annoyed by the Truth that is being proclaimed! It is also clear that you do not believe the Truth and it would appear that you have never read the Bible for yourself. This is the problem that arises when you trust in a false apostle to interpret the Scriptures on your behalf. Have you never read John 4:22 ~

John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the Redeemer is a Jew of the nation of Israel (Jacob). He is not a “Black man” as you allude. Many people have even foolishly referred to Him as being “African,” for that is where generally “Black men” come from, right? But they have failed to believe what God speaks of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth (in Galilee). Let us see the prophetic Word of God and their fulfilments. Jesus the Christ (Messiah) would be of the seed of Abraham, through Isaac and then Jacob (Israel) as we read in Genesis 12:3; 28:13,14

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Genesis 28:13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

Genesis 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

We also read that the Lord Jesus Christ is from the tribe of Judah as it is written in Genesis 49:10 ~

Genesis 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

The Lord Jesus Christ would also be Heir to the throne of David as prophesied in Isaiah 9:6,7 ~

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

And He would be born in Bethlehem as it is written in Micah 5:2 and Matthew 2:1,6 ~

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Matthew 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

All of the preceding references are encapsulated in the Scriptures John 7:41-43, as it is written ~

John 7:41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

John 7:42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

John 7:43 So there was a division among the people because of him.

So the facts are – the Lord Jesus Christ is a Jew of Israel, a middle eastern people of origin.

Further, please understand that we do not hate Nongqunga! We do not hate our fellow man! We do however hate the evil false heretical teachings that he is involved in where millions of people are being deceived. The initial blog post that you have commented at would not have been necessary if the heresies were not publicly declared by the TACC and therefore we had to bring a public correction. This also goes for any other religious system, sect, or church that declares false teachings, of which we have previously addressed here on this blog under numerous postings and we will continue to declare the Truth without fear, favour or prejudice.

It would also be appreciated if you would refrain from your playing the racism-card. This has absolutely nothing to do with whether the man is black, green or white. Please also note that we do remember our ancestors, but God forbids speaking to, praying to and worshipping our ancestors. There is where the issue lies! An example is: My mother passed away on 29th February 2012. I do fondly remember her, and even think about the things she did for me and how we related to one another during her life-time, BUT I WILL NEVER now attempt to talk to her in her death, pray to her in her death or worship her in her death! Nor would I try to use her as a mediator between God Almighty and me! For here is what God’s Word says ~

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Deuteronomy 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

Deuteronomy 18:10 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,

Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

A necromancer (see definition below at the foot hereof) is a consulter with the dead.

538461_10150686977861039_612866038_9719778_511899494_n

To end off with your last statement – “Hayi Gary leave us alone with your “interpretation”.” It is so difficult to just let falsehood go unchallenged. Reading your statement made me immediately think of a secular song by Pink Floyd titled “Another brick in the wall,” which lyrics go like this:

We don’t need no education;

We don’t need no thought control.

The dark sarcasm in the classroom;

HEY! Teacher! Leave us kids alone.

All-in-all it’s just a ‘nother brick in the wall.

All-in-all it’s just a ‘nother brick in the wall.

That is exactly it – mind control! People don’t want the TRUTH, so they would rather believe lies! Yeah, that is the work of the Devil!

Please repent, sir. Ukupenduka!

Answer to Malibongwe

Another visitor’s comment that needs to be corrected appeared at “Doctrine of Demons” (please read first) posted on September 1, 2010. The following comment from Malibongwe was received on April 11, 2013, quote:

“mr gary. i believe this calls upon us to think as academics and not as fanatical thinkers. i canot express my anger in words right now, nt angry at u but to the comunity at large. 4 it tears my heart apart wen one throws accusations that are not supported by any hardcore sources.not being in defense of the nazareth faith. since u are using the bible as a reference. did u knw that the bible was not compiled by god but by mere mortals in the council of nicea? did u knw that many of the things there are not recorded historicaly? did u knw that the 4 gospels were not writen by the apostles? did u knw….? plz research about yo religion which i`m sure would help. before blaming people. even if they were wrong what would that have to do with u?”

Dear Malibongwe

Thank you for this comment. However, whilst you hope to address this issue in an academic fashion, you have failed academically by denouncing the Truth which is what is being proclaimed here by the Repent and Believe South Africa ministry. What “hardcore sources” do you require? The Holy Bible IS the Word of God as “Thus saith the LORD.” To say it is not is to call God a liar! Read what God’s Word says:

Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

The Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek autographs have over the centuries been discovered and been compiled as the Holy Bible. Men have painstakingly transcribed the text over time until such time as the printing press was able to bring us the Holy Bible in book-form and we no longer have to “keep” the Scriptures in papyrus-scroll form.  We know that God Almighty is the Author of His Story (History). Obviously, if one studies the Holy Scriptures you will find that God recorded historical events with names, places and times throughout before they even took place by fulfilled prophecies, which you can incidentally also confirm with the fulfilled historical events recorded by historians and scribes alike outside of Holy Writ. [Please view the History of the Bible Video.]

If you as one of the “Nazarene-faith” do not believe the Holy Bible to be God’s Word to His creation, then by what authority do you go? Remember what the Lord Jesus Christ said about making the Word of God of none effect by reading, as it is written in Mark 7-9,13:

Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mark 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Please show us what we have written to be untrue! What has been written, has been written, and we glorify God Almighty by His Word revealing the error of man’s traditions, customs and commandments by quoting His Word.

Please also note that it does matter what people believe, for if they have been taught incorrectly and believe a lie, their souls will be judged on Judgment Day and their consequence is eternity in the lake of fire. (See Revelation 20:15). Only uncaring, unloving people do not care about a person’s eternal destiny!

Sir, please repent. Ukupenduka!

A False Christ

An article that appeared in the Weekend Witness dated Saturday, June 8, 2013, here in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, ran a story that was titled:

‘Jesus’ needs help

ESHOWE: Man claims to be Christ

An African man named Moses Hlongwane (57) from the kwaKhoza area believes he is the Messiah. The full article can be read at this Link. For this man to claim that he is ‘Christ,’ is blasphemous, but his false claims prove the Holy Bible to be True where the Scriptures read, as it is written:

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Obviously, Mr Hlongwane has not read the Scriptures, and although he says he is the ‘Christ’, he has not understood the very Words of the True Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Author of His Story (History) when one reads:

Matthew 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.

Matthew 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

This certainly will not be the first or last time that foolish men will profess to be the Lord Jesus Christ. The aforementioned article also makes reference to a Queensland Australian named Alan John Miller who professed to be ‘Jesus Christ’ and his ‘wife’ Mary Luck was in fact ‘Mary Magdalene.’ And then there was also David Koresh, who led the Branch Davidian religious sect, who believed he was the son of God. This world is truly full of evil and wicked people who are just plain wacky! And they need to Repent!
