Conversation with a young Rastafarian

On Monday March 9, 2015 I decided to go to the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) Testing Facility, Mkondeni, Pietermaritzburg to pick up some PDP (Professional Driver’s Permit) forms. Whilst there I handed out some Gospel literature to the long queue of people from all walks of life who were filling out forms, waiting for licences, tests, etc. Some gladly received the free literature whilst others refused, which is not unexpected.

I then saw an elderly African man standing by himself so I approached him to have a conversation with him. It turned out that he is a Zionist who does the customary “praying to ancestors” which is forbidden by YEHOVAH (YHVH) in Deuteronomy 18:11 where it makes reference to a necromancer who partakes in necromancy – which is consulting with the dead! The normal response, even though shown in God’s Word, by religious people is, “It’s our culture,” or “We practice the traditions of our parents.” But this man, being an older man, listened and started agreeing with what was being said and he was shaking his head in affirmation of what he was being taught. Only God knows what was happening in this man’s heart – unfortunately I failed to get his name, but God knows him as his Creator! He undertook to read the Gospel material I presented him, when his son Muzi arrived. I estimate Muzi to be about 18-20 years of age and by his clothing that he was wearing it was clear he was a Rastafarian. It always helps when heathens wear “tell-tale” signs of what they believe or who they are!

IMG-20150311-WA000 I immediately addressed him about what he believes, and being arrogant he told me that Haile Selassie is the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Well, we taught him from the Holy Bible that he is deceived and by the leading of the Holy Spirit showed him from many portions of Scripture that the Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in flesh using Hebrews 1; John 1:1,2,14; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; doubting Thomas’ account in John 20:26-29, etc. Whilst addressing him I was reading aloud the Scriptures which got all those waiting and walking past on this narrow walkway an opportunity to hear our Lord Jesus Christ’s name being proclaimed openly. Our Lord had opened a door for His Word. Please pray that God will save some of the hearers. A young Indian girl also came and leaned on the wall next to us and it was obvious she was listening. Muzi then said he needed to leave and join the queue and so I left him with literature of the “Good News” of our Lord Jesus Christ being the Redeemer and also encouraged Muzi to contact me on WhatsApp. On my way out I saw the young Indian girl reading a “How to Live Forever Without Being Religious” tract. Later the morning when I was at home, I received a WhatsApp message from Muzi, and this is the conversation that followed:  

Monday March 9, 2015

10:20 Muzi: Good morning sir

____________

10:31 GSC: Hi – how do you spell your name. Mouzie ??

____________

10:32 Muzi: It muzi sir.wow u still remember me

____________

10:34 GSC: Thanks. I try to remember people I speak to, but often I forget names but hardly a face.

____________

10:35 Muzi: True sir.cant forget a face.We were made in the same image of 1 god. So u a priest?

____________

10:37 GSC: No – not a priest, an evangelist – a minister of the Word of God. And you?

____________

10:38 Muzi: A servant of the almighty creator.i reali wish we can meet again and reason

____________

10:39 GSC: We can. Are you resident in Pietermaritzburg?

____________

10:40 Muzi: True and u

____________

10:42 GSC: Yes. In which are do you live? And are you studying (Tech/Varsity) at the moment?

——————-

Area not are – sorry.

____________

10:44 Muzi: I live at imbali stage2 not studying at moment through financial issues.and where du u live sir?

____________

10:48 GSC: I live in Pelham. I have a Brother in Christ Lungisa Joctrey (Zondi) who lives in Imbali Unit J.

____________

11:18 Muzi: Wow dat great.mayb i will link up with him.because i love reading bible

____________

11:24 GSC: The only problem with that statement you make is that he will tell you exactly the same things I have told you. If you are reading the Holy Bible you would see that Jesus Christ is YHVH (God). Only God can forgive sins, and Jesus Christ forgives sins by His death, burial, resurrection and ascension to heaven.

____________

11:31 Muzi: True.but ddnt jesus say he will return again in a new name?

——————-

And he will restore the throne of david.for he is da direct descended of king david father of solomon.so jesus came again in the manifestation of haile sellassie I

____________

11:35 GSC: What chapter and verse? Jesus says in Matthew 24:3-5 ~ 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

——————-

Scripture tells us no man knows the day or the hour He will return. We also read in Matthew 24:42-44 ~ 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

____________

11:37 Muzi: Ok so jesus is the root of david right.Same in this time with haile sellassie I.He is the 225th rebirth of king.and he came to fullfill da scripture dat jesus shall return again in the new name

——————-

Rebirth of king solomon

——————-

The bright morning star

____________

11:44 GSC: We also read that every eye will see Jesus Christ returning on the clouds with great glory after the great tribulation. This hasn’t happened yet. No, Haile Selassie is not Christ. He is a man deceiving multitudes just like Christ said!

——————-

Haile Selassie is a deceiver like Shembe, like Mohammed, like Buddah, like Ganesh, like Sai Babba, like the Pope, like Ellen G. White, and so on and on . . .

——————-

They all came with a story that they are "Christ". Yes the anti-christ!

____________

11:46 Muzi: Lol.ok even when jesus was on earth many people denied him saying u just carpenter.how can you call yourself son of god.

____________

11:50 GSC: They all professed to be a "Messiah" for their people. The devil wants to keep people believing a lie so they will go to hell with him. The LORD of lords, KING of kings JESUS CHRIST can set people free from bondage and death.

——————-

That is right Jesus came unto His own and they rejected Him.

____________

11:51 Muzi: Same in this time with haile sellassie.as it was in the beggining so shall it be even dis tym

____________

11:56 GSC: Stop looking to a man. It is like men who pray to their ancestors. They are dead. God warns in His Word that you are not to speak / consult with dead people. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men! (See 1 Timothy 2:3-5)

____________

11:57 Muzi: Lol in other words jesus is not an ancestor?

____________

12:03 GSC: Jesus is God. I proved it to you this morning. People only bow the knee and worship God. In Philippians 2:9-11 ~ 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.

——————-

You say you love reading the Bible, but you haven’t proved from Scripture anything!

____________

12:06 Muzi: Lol my friend if any1 who live in earth becomes flesh and when flesh dies he becomes a spirit which is an ancestor…an ancestor is not some1 u pray to the word ancestor means dat person once lived on earth but now dat person is spirit u understand?

____________

12:18 GSC: Definition – Ancestor, noun – a person whom one is descended; forebear; progenitor. — Jesus Christ is God manifest in flesh. He has no beginning or end. He is eternal.

——————-

When one dies you don’t then become spirit. A person is made up of three parts: body, soul and spirit!

____________

12:26 Muzi: Ok sir.wat da difference between soul and spirit?

____________

14:23 GSC: Sorry Muzi, I had some work to attend to. The soul is the inner man with all its emotions, character and it is what makes each person so unique, and the spirit is what gives us the ability to communicate / fellowship with God if you are born-again (John 3:3). You can only be born-again and receive the Holy Spirit of God by His grace through faith (see Ephesians 2:8,9) in Jesus Christ. No Jesus living in you then you are spiritually dead headed for Hell.

——————-

If you have not repented of your sins (penduka) and having your repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ you will remain lost and dead in your sins come your death or Judgment Day which ever will come first.

____________

16:03 GSC: Jesus Christ can save you if you will acknowledge Him by calling upon His name and receive Him by faith.

____________

16:45 Muzi: Amen i hear you

____________

17:09 GSC: No one else, including Haile Selassie. Jesus Christ and Him alone. You must renounce all the false prophets, false teachers and all the anti-christs those who want to give you another way to "god", not the true God. Religions cannot save you, only a born-again relationship with Jesus Christ can.

——————-

Read John 17:1-26 ~

1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

17:13 Muzi: Thanks sir.amen

Muzi last seen at 08:33

15:43 GSC: Afternoon Muzi. Have you read the Gospel literature I gave you yesterday and considered the predicament you are in? When are you going to call upon the One True God Jesus Christ to save you from His wrath and make you at peace with Him. For: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." ~ Hebrews 10:31. "For our God is a consuming fire." ~ Hebrews 12:29.

_______________________________________________

Muzi has since blocked me on WhatsApp, from Tuesday March 10, 2015 to present date, as his profile picture above does not appear on his messages and no “last seen at …” appears either. I guess when one is caught in one’s sin the only place for the lost is to run from the Light and stay in their darkness.  We leave him in God’s Hands, yet we do pray for his soul and that if God wills this conversation will resume again for God’s glory alone.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Death of Senzo Meyiwa

Senzo Robert Meyiwa (24 September 1987 – 26 October 2014), aged 27 years was gunned down in what appears to be a botched robbery at the home of his girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus, South Africa. He was a professional footballer with the Premier Soccer League Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and was the Bafana Bafana South African goalkeeper and recent captain, representing the national team on six occasions between 2013-2014 and keeping clean sheets in his last four CAF AFCON international appearances.

Senzo Meyiwa 01 Writer came to hear of Senzo’s death this morning whilst at the petrol garage and speaking to the attendant named Sphelele – who said his name means “The Last One.” I had queried Sphelele whether he was born-again and he said that there were no others that were born after him, that is why he is “The Last One.” In his “innocence” of not quite understanding where the conversation was headed, I asked him what would happen to him if he had to die? As the conversation unfolded, it was then that Sphelele informed me that Senzo Meyiwa was tragically killed last night (on Sunday evening October 26, 2014). On Saturday the 25th instant Senzo had just played for Orlando Pirates in a 4-1 win over Ajax Cape Town in the quarterfinals of the Telkom Cup. This opened up the conversation even further with the Day of Judgment and the conversation leading to: What if Sphelele found himself in Senzo’s position? Well he had work to attend to, so I left him with a booklet titled: “Your Life ~ God’s Solution to Your Religion” and a “WARNING ~ The Back of This Card May Offend You.”

During the course of this morning and into the early evening I attempted at various times to glean as much information as possible from various news sites and social media without speculating as to what took place and the parties concerned. What was evident upfront that caught my attention and was a concern was that the relationship that existed between Senzo Meyiwa and Kelly Khumalo has been termed as “lovers”, “girlfriend” and “companions.” The first thing that came to mind was that these two parties were involved in a fornicating relationship. I did pray and ask Almighty God to protect my heart as I thought upon this situation. As the reports were scanned further, it has now become quite evident that they were not only in a fornication relationship where they have a child out of wedlock, but it has surfaced that he is a married man that in April 2014 it was reported that he had left his wife Mandisa Meyiwa (nee Mhkize) for Kelly Khumalo.

What is sad and shows the ignorance of the South African andSenzo Meyiwa 02 international public at large, even including political ministers, is that their heartfelt messages are holding the deceased Senzo as an icon, an idol, someone to be hero worshipped and that he could do no wrong. However there are a small minority of comments made in the social media circulating in cyberspace where the spiritual application of the souls in question need to be addressed. Whilst many have commented “Senzo RIP” or “Our prayers for you, RIP” or something along those lines of thought, the question is: Is Senzo’s soul resting in peace?

The Holy Word of the One and Only True and Living GOD ~ YHVH says the following:

Exodus 20:14  Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Matthew 5:27  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
Matthew 5:28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Matthew 5:29  And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Matthew 5:30  And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Galatians 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Galatians 5:20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Galatians 5:21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

This blog post is not just about Senzo Meyiwa and where he will spend all of eternity, for the Holy Scripture warns:

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

This blog is about Kelly Khumalo, his estranged wife Mandisa Meyiwa, his children, the three murderers, politicians, police officers, professional footballers and athletes, YOU – in short every person living and dead. We all have an appointment with the Judge of the Universe, the Lord Jesus Christ the Righteous. All will have their day in court. There are no exceptions!

Look at the stern warning given in Holy Scripture, the very Word of God that this evil, wicked and reprobate world does not want to adhere to; it reads for it is written:

Proverb 5:1  My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
Proverb 5:2  That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
Proverb 5:3  For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
Proverb 5:4  But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
Proverb 5:5  Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
Proverb 5:6  Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
Proverb 5:7  Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
Proverb 5:8  Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
Proverb 5:9  Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
Proverb 5:10  Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
Proverb 5:11  And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
Proverb 5:12  And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
Proverb 5:13  And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
Proverb 5:14  I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
Proverb 5:15  Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
Proverb 5:16  Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
Proverb 5:17  Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.
Proverb 5:18  Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
Proverb 5:19  Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
Proverb 5:20  And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
Proverb 5:21  For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Proverb 5:22  His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
Proverb 5:23  He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

Adultery is not the only concern, neither fornication, be it heterosexual or homosexual sex. You might judge this wicked love-triangle, but consider your own sin. Have you committed adultery? Looked with lust? Are you a fornicator? Or maybe you have broken God’s ninth commandment by lying? Do you tell lies and think that the Creator God will not send liars to Hell? Or maybe you never pulled the trigger, but have you committed murder of the heart by despising and hating someone? Or do you break the second commandment which is part of God’s perfect Law:

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.

It’s not only in a religious sense as with Hinduism and Buddhism, but this also applies to idol worshipping soccer players and singers / actors, or maybe it is money and possessions, fame and fortune.

We are warned by God:

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We are further warned:

Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

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

Judgment Day is approaching. We see the world’s communities are becoming more and more evil and wicked, for it reveals the depraved humanity that are living for their father the devil. Things are not going to get any better – look at the Middle East which is a cesspool of iniquity and lawlessness. In fact the world over reveals the lawlessness of men and their depraved hearts! And many think they are “good” – far from it; reprobate yes, but not good!

This is the Revelation of the Day of Judgment:

Rev 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Rev 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
Rev 20:12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Rev 20:13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Rev 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

If you are honest before God and listening to your conscience, you would be guilty before the Judge of the Universe and guilty persons will be sent to Hell for eternity. The only way to receive peace with God is to be reconciled back to God through His only begotten Son, the Saviour who gave Himself as the perfect sacrifice who took the sins of the world into His body and condemned the sin in His flesh. We read of His Divinity and Humanity in being the Saviour for reprobate sinners who will call on Him to be saved:

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.

Repent today – Ukupenduka – for today is the day of salvation. You are not guaranteed another day on this earth. Ask Senzo or any other approximately 150 000 people who have died in the last 24 hours and been ushered into eternity.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said:

Luke 13:3  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:23  And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Luke 9:24  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
Luke 9:25  For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
