Wolves in sheep’s clothing

NEWSFLASHES AND RHETORIC COMMENTS #4

What an abomination. Firstly, no man has the right to condone the killing and beating of homosexuals, but we, as Christians, do have the right to stand upon God’s Holy Word and call sodomites, homosexuals and lesbians to repentance from their evil and wicked choice-of-lifestyle that they lust after! Secondly, we also have the right to call evil heretic clergyman – wolves in sheep’s clothing – to repent of their evil and wicked ways before God Almighty! What an abomination to blaspheme God at His very Word. God is Holy and He calls for holiness!

Pope FrancisThis is not something new under the sun with Desmond Tutu who as far back as 2004 was already advocating rights for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender) movement. He and pope Francis, one an Anglican the other a Roman Catholic, respectively, have come out in the space of a few days with their views in support of homosexuality in one form or another. They have both spoken devilish words publicly and blasphemed the only true God of Creation, YHVH!

Here is an article “Pope Francis On Gays: Who Am I To Judge Them?” that sets out the Romish papal stance on homosexuality. It shows that the Vatican stands for it! And here is another article, this time dealing with the South African Anglican Desmond Tutu who also stands for homosexuality as it appears at The Huffington Post (posted 06/11/11), quote:

All Are God’s Children: On Including Gays and Lesbians in the Church and Society

The following is excerpted from the Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s new book, ‘God Is Not A Christian: And Other Provocations’.

Archbishop Tutu dissents from the official policies of most of the world’s Anglican churches, which hold that gays and lesbians should be celibate; and in the years since his retirement as archbishop of Cape Town he has become one of the world’s most prominent figures pleading for a change in the attitudes of religious institutions toward human sexuality.

Tutu’s position is reflected in excerpts from a newspaper article and a sermon preached in Southwark Cathedral, London, in 2004.

A student once asked me, If I could have one wish granted to reverse an injustice, what would it be? I had to ask for two. One is for world leaders to forgive the debts of developing nations which hold them in such thrall. The other is for the world to end the persecution of people because of their sexual orientation, which is every bit as unjust as that crime against humanity, apartheid.

This is a matter of ordinary justice. We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about — our very skin. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given. I could not have fought against the discrimination of apartheid and not also fight against the discrimination that homosexuals endure, even in our churches and faith groups. I am proud that in South Africa, when we won the chance to build our own new constitution, the human rights of all have been explicitly enshrined in our laws. My hope is that one day this will be the case all over the world, and that all will have equal rights. For me this struggle is a seamless robe. Opposing apartheid was a matter of justice. Opposing discrimination against women is a matter of justice. Opposing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a matter of justice.

It is also a matter of love. Every human being is precious. We are all — all of us — part of God’s family. We all must be allowed to love each other with honor. Yet all over the world, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are persecuted. We treat them as pariahs and push them outside our communities. We make them doubt that they too are children of God. This must be nearly the ultimate blasphemy. We blame them for what they are.

Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical — the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act; the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reasons have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual? The Jesus I worship is not likely to collaborate with those who vilify and persecute an already oppressed minority. I myself could not have opposed the injustice of penalizing people for something about which they could do nothing — their race — and then have kept quiet as women were being penalized for something they could do nothing about — their gender; hence my support for the ordination of women to the priesthood and the episcopate.

Equally, I cannot keep quiet while people are being penalized for something about which they can do nothing — their sexuality. To discriminate against our sisters and brothers who are lesbian or gay on grounds of their sexual orientation for me is as totally unacceptable and unjust as apartheid ever was.

Tutu’s stance has not changed since his 2004 address above from that which appeared in 2013, which reads at News24:

Stop discrimination against gays – Tutu

Cape Town – South Africa should reject discrimination against sexual orientation as it has done with racism, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said on Friday.

“Can you imagine me having said it’s unjust to penalise something they cannot do anything about, their race or gender, and then to keep quiet when people are hounded, people are killed, because of their sexual orientation?” he asked.

“I think it’s as utterly unjust as racism ever was.”

He was speaking at the launch of the United Nations “Free & Equal” global campaign for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality in Cape Town.

Tutu said he would do “almost anything” in support of the campaign, which aimed to raise awareness of homophobic violence and discrimination.

He said this discrimination was based on something people were born with and could do nothing about, just as with race.

“We speak of them and say: No, they are a peculiar breed. They are not a peculiar breed. That is precisely what we are saying, that they are human beings.

“I don’t know why we are so surprised. They have gifts, they can become judges. They can become all sorts of wonderful things.”

Tutu said religious leaders had an important role to play in changing people’s ideas about homosexuality and gender.

It is obvious that these two false teachers do not read God’s Holy Word.

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.

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.

Romans 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;

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

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

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

Romans 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.

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.

SOLI DEO GLORIA

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!!

The Face of Evil and Wicked South Africa

This is the sad face of evil and wicked South Africa. When a nation is sold out to the devil and serves no longer the Creator God exclusively, this is what you get – interfaith debauchery. On 28th November 2012 the President of South Africa met with the National Interfaith Council of South Africa (NICSA) which has been dissolved and is now known as the National Religious Leaders’ Council (NRLC). Here are two news articles for the NRLC meeting [(1) and (2)] that took place. They want to resolve “poverty and general social upliftment” together with other issues through an ecumenical system by bringing all faiths together – it will never work! God will not be mocked by having His Son Jesus Christ riduculed with such blasphemy! This is the type of debauchery that we are talking about. Look at some of the other websites here in South Africa that make a mockery of the One True Creator:

I wonder if the “reverend” Ray McCauley seazed the opportunity at the Union Buildings in Pretoria and actually preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unbelievers who were present at that meeting – or is that possibly asking too much? This is what our Lord Jesus Christ said:

John 8:24 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.

It is an abomination in the sight of a Holy God that man can blaspheme the One True God who revealed Himself as the Lord Jesus Christ who is LORD of all:

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Act 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Act 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

Act 10:37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

Act 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Act 10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

Act 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

Act 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

Act 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Here are the other blogposts (and a few historical posts) that have called on our President and peoples of South Africa to Repent and Believe the one and only Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ – the ONLY WAY God our Creator has given us:

Scripture warns us:

Proverb 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

And South Africa can learn from the Ugandan President who Publicly Repented! He did not just say he is sorry to the people – his prayer was directed to GOD!

Anarchy

On September 12, 2012, an article appeared in The Mercury newspaper titled “Tutu decries SA’s ‘moral decline’”. This South African article can be read in its entirety at the link provided. This all came about during a tribute at a funeral for the reverend Khoza Mgojo in Port Shepstone on Tuesday September 11, 2012. The late Mgojo was described as a “church leader, freedom fighter and community leader” – which is a contradiction of terms. The titles of “church leader and freedom fighter” (the latter term is a fancy non-offensive way of saying “terrorist”) cannot be used collectively, for if any person is called and elected into the Body of Christ, how can he be found to propagate man’s ideologies, which in this case includes Marxist’s and Stalinist’s  communism and socialistic ideologies, atheism and terrorism?

The archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu painted a gloomy picture of South Africa’s decline in its moral standards and the fact that the nation is tearing itself apart. During Tutu’s funeral address, he is quoted as saying [Quote]:

“When we voted in 1994, it was so peaceful and we thought we had crossed river Jordan to the Promised Land. What has happened to us and what do we think of our police force?

“How do we explain to people who want us to prosper that our police shot and killed our own people? What has happened to us?” he said, breaking into an anti-apartheid song Senzeni na? (What have we done?) [Why break out into an anti-apartheid song? What has apartheid got to do with the funeral or the speech, Tutu?]

“What has happened to us when a grown-up man rapes a child? What has happened to us that three orphans were stoned to death? What have we done? God, tell us. We thought you had given us freedom. What have we done? Every day we see different forms of violence. We see people protesting and demonstrating.” [End quote]

The ANC-lead government president Jacob Zuma shared the same platform, this on a rare occasion because of their personal issues with each other, and echoed [Quote]:

“Archbishop Tutu’s concerns are pertinent and fundamental. What has happened to us as people? This is a challenge to all of us. What we should do is go beyond asking the question. I think we should do something because we are all concerned that killing has become so easy.

“For police to shoot and kill people and for the people to protest with pangas and spears meant there was a problem. [This is in reference to the Marikana mine strikes]

“We need a gathering for us all to ask the question on what has happened to us, particularly the Africans,” said Zuma. [End quote]

In stead of Messrs Tutu and Zuma having a meeting to try sort out the “national approach” to these problems caused here in South Africa, which for the record has nothing to do with apartheid, before the ‘comrades’ use the ‘apartheid-race-card’ again, it would be best that they repent of their wicked and wretched sins before God. This blog will show what the leaders of this country post-1994 have done by selling this country to the devil. For Tutu to ask:  “What have we done? God, tell us. We thought you had given us freedom. What have we done?” God’s Word will tell you what the nation of South Africa has done! No, the rainbow nation is not free under the democracy of a man-centred, idolatrise, God-hating government and society that has been brought about and implemented by the ANC government. God has not given South Africa freedom. True freedom only comes through God’s Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ said ~

32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. ~ John 8:32

36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. ~ John 8:36

If Tutu would have preached the True Gospel of Jesus Christ and not been a puppet where he has allowed state and church to be joined instead of speaking up for separation during the “struggle”, where he should have been calling for the ANC / SACP / COSATU alliance to repent towards God and not have agreed with their ungodly laws that were passed by Nelson Mandela and the corruption that has flowed from a leadership that is corrupt in all their ways, he has had a platform to preach God’s True Word, but he has neglected to fulfil his mandate before God, that is, if he was ever called. His failure to do so, but to be a propagator for the terrorists has left much wanting! When such laws were passed that allows abortion (murder of the unborn child), homosexual freedom and same-sex marriages that go against God’s commands, customary polygamy which is bigamy and adultery, encouraging of fornication (sex outside the bounds of marriage) with the “condomise-and-be-wise” HIV/AIDS campaign instead of encouraging abstinence, striking of a greed-driven populace, inefficient legal and justice system that allows criminals more rights than ‘law-abiding’ citizens, and even customary practices of ancestral worship, consulting of witchdoctors, sorcerers and traditional healers, ‘kingdoms’ of African cultures which allow the carrying of traditional weapons, the lawless practices of nepotism, bribery, corruption, fraud, mismanagement and theft of taxpayers’ monies, striking that cripples our economy and unemployment and poverty and the killing fields where innocent blood is shed, genocide, and racism in reverse (black-on-white) and the heinous list goes on, and on … have you ever considered how God sees these abominations before His eyes? This is the real problem – YOU have turned from your Creator and committed evil and wicked sin against Him!

When the ANC government signed into law the freedom of religions, they sold out this nation to the devil – the true enemy – as the freedom given by men is the same as not believing – that is atheism, which is godlessness. God gave commandment that you shall have no other gods before Him or idol worship (see Exodus 20:3-6), but the practiced religions have made a mockery of God. Do not think God is happy with the ANC for their devilish practices of selling out to the devil. We learn much from God’s Holy Word, when we see how God blessed and even battled on for His chosen people, on Israel’s behalf. Yes, the very people Israel, that many hate and speak out against – the very people from where salvation comes from, for salvation is of the Jews (see John 4:22). But when God’s chosen people rebelled against God He handed His people over to an oppressor. We read in Judges 10:6-16 ~

6And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him. 7And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon. 8And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead. 9Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; so that Israel was sore distressed. 10And 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. 11And 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? 12The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand. 13Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more. 14Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation. 15And the children of Israel said unto the LORD, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day. 16And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.

When God’s people turned back to Him, He delivered them from the oppressors. You have been warned South Africa – you are oppressed by the ANC / SACP / COSATU alliance, for God tells us ~

2When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. ~ Proverbs 29:2

The righteous are not in authority therefore the people are not rejoicing. We have wicked rulers and therefore the people – this nation, South Africa – are mourning. When we see the plight of the poor and those in poverty getting worse and we see little service delivery and the municipalities that are to serve the people are mostly bankrupt from the thieving politicians – the very wicked rule the proverb speaks about! It doesn’t take a rocket-scientist to be able to join the dots and see what is happening here! Be warned, YOU will have your Day in Court before the Judge of the entire Universe. No Court of Appeal, No Constitutional Court, and No comrades to help you out of the fix you are in!

We also see such corruption like the R203 million plus payments of taxpayers’ monies through the Department of Works for the improvements of Jacob Zuma’s “personal residence” in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal. No wonder the “ruling” party wants the “Secrecy Bill” passed so their evil and wretched practices will be hidden from the knowledge of the populace. Ah! God sees it all and the charge sheet is getting longer, and longer, with each passing day. You think you can crook the books this side of eternity, but you will not escape True Justice come Judgment Day! The culprits are warned that they will one day stand before the Judgment Seat of Jesus Christ, as we read:

10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:10

14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. ~ Ecclesiastes 12:14

And God has a prison called Hell. It is hot, it is a lake of fire, it is wrath filled, and there will be anguish, gnashing of teeth, torment, pain, grief, sorrow and suffering. This is no joking matter, you have been warned again!

To God alone be the Glory in and through His Son Jesus Christ the Righteous. Messrs Tutu and Zuma and citizens of South Africa – when you Ukuphenduka (repent) and turn back to God and have your faith towards Jesus Christ (and that means the True Jesus Christ), we pray that He will have mercy upon your souls and save you from the wrath of God. If not, God will still be glorified!

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

TopTV Boss out ‘over porn’

Here is a follow up report that appeared in The Witness newspaper dated Thursday, February 2, 2012 in respect of my previous blog post titled Oops! Top TV.

This truly shows the condition of men’s hearts that they are full of all manner of evil, abominations that are ungodly and desperately wicked. God’s Word speaks of the condition of men’s hearts:

9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. ~ Jeremiah 17:9,10

and

20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. ~ Mark 7:20-23

It shows from the dismissing of TopTV’s CEO that if you do not produce immoral material in the form of pornography a service provider can get rid of you and sack you from your position because evil and wicked ‘incensed’ (sic) investors want filth to be provided to the public. Does the so called investors speak on behalf of all members of the public? The investors will one day stand before God Almighty and give account for their wicked and immoral decisions taken and for feeding the lust of many others who, too, will give an account to God. All for the love of money, mankind will go to the most despicable depths to satisfy their lusts! You have been warned. Depart from your evil ways.

By Thinus Ferreira and Witness Reporter

“CAPE TOWN – TopTV’s CEO, Vino Govender, is getting the boot after incensed investors apparently put pressure on the beleaguered pay TV operator to get rid of him amid mounting unhappiness with its content and broken promises.

“Eddie Mbalo, chairperson of On Digital Media (ODM), TopTV’s umbrella company, confirmed last night the company was in talks with Govender “on a mutual separation”.

“These discussions were not concluded and ODM would not make further comment, he said.

“Mbalo is tipped to succeed Govender, at least in an acting capacity.

“Channel 24 reported earlier yesterday that Govender was getting the boot after a failed attempt at launching a much-maligned porn package.

“It quoted insiders saying investors were worried about the direction of the company and the pay TV operator’s content.

“The Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), one of the major investors in TopTV since its launch, apparently asked that Govender be replaced over its faltering content offering.

“The IDC could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.

“As to where TopTV went wrong, media consultant Janine Lazarus said: “It will now be very difficult for the public to divorce the brand from the debate on pornography, and – even worse – the fracas surrounding getting the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa’s stamp of approval.

“What is needed now is some serious rethinking and strategizing – that is if it isn’t too late.”

“Govender took over as ODM’s CEO in 2007 when the founder Mergan Moodley, became ill. TopTV passed the 300 000 subscriber mark towards the end of last year, before its porn plan became known and organisations started calling for a boycott.

“TopTV also received criticism for the vast number of repeat screenings, lack of new channels since November that have not yet been replaced, and a failure to follow through on multiple promises, like starting a sport channel.

“Since its commercial launch in May 2010 Govender has backtracked about the company’s plans on several occasions. Chief among them is the promise not to run pornographic channels.

“Promises of plans to have high definition (HD) channels, a PVR and the addition of several new TV channels within months of its launch have not been realised.

“TopTV went through a restructuring exactly a year ago. It recently lost the Hi Nolly and One Music channels, and will lose its Current TV channel on March 11.

“Morale at TopTV is reportedly down, with several people worried about their jobs.

“An insider said a consultancy would be engaged to review the structure, positions and skill sets, “but nothing has been communicated to the staff”.” – Channel 24

Oops! TOP TV

Here is an article that appeared in our local newspaper this week that deals with a recently introduced pay-per-view South African satellite television channel named TOP TV, which is seeking a broadcasting licence to introduce pornography channels to its programming schedule. The report reads as follows:

“Oops! Top TV admits it is planning porn channels after all” ~ The Witness, Wednesday, December 7, 2011

TOP TV plans to introduce three porn channels, operator On Digital Media (ODM) announced yesterday (i.e. Dec. 6, 2011).

This was the day after TOP TV denied involvement with Porn Satellite TV’s (PSat) 24-hour porn channel.

The public has until the end of today (7th) to submit its views on ODM’s application to broadcast three Playboy TV channels.

It said the company is “aware that adult content is a very sensitive subject”.

It said the channels will be a stand-alone package not available to regular subscribers, who will not see any on-air promotions or programme guides for the porn offerings. The porn will be encrypted and viewers will need to key in a PIN code to see it.

TOP TV’s decision follows its failure to buy sports programming, and the company said it was forced to look at other “niche” offerings. [Can you believe it? Can’t get idol-worship (sport) so we will give them perversion and smut (porn)]

Last May CEO Vino Govender promised that TOP TV would not be offering adult entertainment.

Independent Communications Authority of SA spokesperson Paseka Maleka said the decision on the authorisation of the three pornography channels will be made after the public consultation process is completed.

While TOP TV says it is approaching its porn in a very responsible way, the Family Policy Institute disagrees.

The Institute’s director, Errol Naidoo, said it will call for a boycott of the broadcaster if the licence is granted.

“It is misleading and deceptive that TOP TV can be upset over PSat, but they are planning to do the same.

“For them it is about money-making, not about the effect that porn has on families and men (and women) who become addicted.

“If the channels go ahead we encourage Christian citizens and members of other faith groups to stop paying their TOP TV subscriptions and cancel their contracts.”

TOP TV said yesterday it will take legal action against French company CanalSat, which plans to use the same satellite as TOP TV for its PSat hardcore pornography channel.

Just recently I blogged about The Perversion of Pornography, and it now seems that ICASA and the broadcasting television company known as TOP TV are going the same route as they are committed to promote the perversion of pornography in South Africa. This evil has already been introduced into this society by our ANC government, who has allowed pornographic materiel to be viewed since “democracy” came to South Africa in 1994 under the banner of the Films and Publications Act, 1996 (Act No. 65 of 1996)(Amended).

South Africa is not a democracy – it is a capitalist communist society that is atheistic and idolatrise – worshipping of many gods through their freedom of religion as contained in the SA constitution and bill of rights. It comes as no surprise that if the ruling party has no moral standards pertaining to what God commands in His Word, do not be surprised when the majority of the populace who voted them into power have no morals either. Just recently a “Secrecy Bill” was voted on in parliament and was adopted for further scrutiny and the very reason for this is that this will limit the media reporting on any governmental issues or the public knowing the truth of what is happening in the corridors of government. This will allow corrupt officials to continue defrauding the state coffers and the communists will control the people as to what they can know! There is no freedom in this. There is also an old saying that goes: “What monkey see, monkey do.” This saying can also be applied to lack of morals, too. If government sets an immoral example, the followers will be immoral themselves! They are only following the bad example set for them.

Why is this preceding paragraph mentioned? It has much foundation in this report. If a country, purporting to be “Christian”, votes for immorality by their own hand at the polling booths, and immorality dictates by those who are God-haters by the very fact they do not follow and keep His Commandments (see John 14:15, 21), then you can expect that the old serpent the Devil, Satan is being worshipped. The very reason that much crime prevails in South Africa is that, even if there are “a majority of christian believers” (which I doubt) in South Africa, it is as a result that much pagan and heathen practices and idolatries prevail and even those that believe in “God” are not following the One True God, Jesus Christ the Righteous, but many false gods (see Psalm 115). Idolatries!! This includes the hundreds of indigenous christian-faith religions masquerading as Christianity. God sees this as an abomination and He will not bless evil and wicked practices that unfold daily before Him. That is why –

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

King of kings, Lord of lords, Jesus Christ said:

(27) Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: (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 5:27, 28

The decisions that ICASA and TOP TV managements make surrounding the “going ahead” with the porn channels will have eternal consequences, not only for the decisions individuals make for their organisations, but also for the souls that sin or continue in their sin from the decisions made. Scripture reads, for it is written:

(10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:10

and

(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. (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. (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. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. ~ Revelation 20:11-15

If you do not have your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life you will not be welcomed into eternal life by the Lord Jesus Christ, Almighty God, but you will have another ‘welcoming’ committee on entering into Hell:

(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. ~ Revelation 20:10

God has already made a way out for evil and wicked sinners to escape His wrath to come. The Good News, the Gospel of God, is:

(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (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. (19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.  ~ John 3:16-21

(36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. ~ John 3:36

Before the decision is taken, remember God’s Word:

(19) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: ~ Deuteronomy 30:19

Almighty God has given you the answer – choose wisely!

The Perversion of Pornography

We are in the very throws of a media explosion that promotes illicit sex, public nudity and naked flesh selling anything from cell phones and alcohol to motor vehicles and household appliances. Governments call this democracy, and the populace calls it freedom of expression and speech and individuals hold to their free will to decide. What none of the afore-going has taken into consideration is how their Creator views this abomination that prevails upon His earth. What is sacred in God’s eyes is that He has given sex to us as a blessing to procreate, but man through the wiles of the Devil Satan has perverted God’s gift to mankind and made it a profane thing and a debauched perversion.

Pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry, and it is an evil and wicked form of entertainment. Porn can be readily accessed in two versions: soft-core or hard-core; and it can be viewed on cell phones, via the internet, in sex shops, on videos and DVDs, in magazines and comics and in brothels. Porn is a curse that has no limitations on age, race, gender, class, equality or nationality – it is a sinful activity that has millions upon millions of persons bound in slavery, as slaves to perversion and headed for Hell. Almighty God has commanded man in the 7th Commandment, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14) and Scripture also reveals that Jesus said that if a person looks with lust you have already committed adultery with that person in the heart (see Matthew 5:27, 28). We are also warned to “Flee fornication” (1 Corinthians 6:18a). It is from this word “fornication” that we derive the word “porn” – and an extension of this latter word – “pornography.” From the Holy Bible we can translate the Greek words in the New Testament using the Strong’s Complete Word Study Concordance, and we are presented with the following:

  • 4202. πορνϵία, porneia, por-ni’-ah; from 4203; harlotry (including adultery and incest); figurative idolatry: – fornication.
  • 4203. πορνϵύω, porneuō, porn-yoo’-o; from 4204; to act the harlot, i.e. (literal) indulge unlawful lust (of either sex), or (figurative) practise idolatry: – commit (fornication).
  • 4204. πóρνŋ, pornē, por’-nay: feminine of 4205; a strumpet; figurative an idolater: – harlot, whore.
  • 4205. πóρνοϛ, pornos, por’-nos: from πέρνŋμι, pernēmi (to sell; akin to the base of 4097); a (male) prostitute (as venal), i.e. (by analogy) a debauchee (libertine): – fornicator, whoremonger.
  • 4097. πιπράơκω, pipraskō, pip-ras’-ko: a reduplicated and prolonged form of πράω, praō, prah’-o (which occurs only as an alternate in certain tenses); contracted from πϵράω, peraō (to traverse; from the base of 4008); to traffic (by travelling), i.e. dispose of as merchandise or into slavery (literal or figurative): – sell.

We can see from the translations where Scripture refers to the word of fornication that it deals extensively with what one would encounter in pornography – harlotry, adultery, incest, idolatry, lust in heterosexuals and homosexuals (sodomites and lesbians), harlots and whores (prostitution), male prostitutes, human trafficking, merchandise and slavery. God warns through out His Word that those committing the afore-going sins will receive punishment in Hell for all eternity.

One might think that the individual has his “right” to partake in the sins of pornography, but that is in violation of what God has commanded His creation not to partake in. It is also a debauched activity to partake in the lustful activities of pornography as many young girls find themselves enslaved by being sexually abused and held as slaves within human trafficking against their own will. They are treated as “pieces of meat” or “idols of lust” by whoremongers.

The depravity of both men and women, from those that look at the media to those who partake in the very acts of sexual immorality, shows the evil and wickedness of their hearts and their outright rebellion against their Creator God. I know, for I too was once a depraved reprobate of a man who was a slave to sexual sin, adultery, fornication and pornography. It is only through the indwelling Holy Spirit that victory can be obtained by the blood of Jesus Christ, when Satan and his demonic spirits come with their temptations. Flee from fornication. Flee from pornography. Flee to Jesus Christ the Righteous.

Scripture speaks loud and clear by warning against the evils of what defiles a man (and woman) as we read:

(20) And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. (21) For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, (22) Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: (23) All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. ~ Mark 7:20-23

(19) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, (20) Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, (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. ~ Galatians 5:19-21

This is a stern warning what God’s Word says to those who are both the perpetrators as well as the victims alike of these evils. We read of the Commands that God has given in His Word and we see that Satan has used man to corrupt everything that Almighty God has commanded by promoting and encouraging evil, wicked, debauched behaviour which goes against God’s Word.

If Almighty God is speaking to your sinful heart today, do not harden it in the day of visitation. Call upon the name of His Son Jesus Christ to save you from your wretched life, repent (forsake your sin and change your mind) then bring forth fruit of repentance to the Glory of God. Scripture speaks that:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ~ 1 John 1:9
