Preaching at the UKZN PMB Campus

Friday March 20, 2015

This was our most recent endeavour to see where Almighty God would lead us to evangelise. After much prayer and seeking God, Jono Anderson and Gary Crous came out to make known the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the students attending the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in Golf Road at the Pietermaritzburg Campus. We took up our position outside the “Psychology Faculty”. Whilst Gary preached the holiness of Yehovah (YHVH) and called the female students to dress modestly and to not prostitute their bodies and go a whoring in fornication, he was approached by an Indian female student wanting to “say something”, and she certainly did as the preaching continued, when she spewed out filth saying to Gary that he must “take your Bible and your Christianity and screw yourself” before she stormed off. We count it all pleasure to be reviled for our Master’s Name and Gospel.

11  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
~ Matthew 5:11,12

Our Father had certainly opened a door to proclaim His glorious Son’s Name – a Name which is above every name (see Philippians 2:9). God has shown us that there are many in need of hearing the Truth. Praise be to His Holy Name!

On our second trip back this past week, brothers Jono Anderson and Gary Crous were accompanied by brother Marius Louw. This time we decided that whilst this God-given door remains open for the preaching and witnessing one-to-one or to small groups of our Great God’s Word, we would take a portable plastic table to set up our Gospel literature, tracts and Bibles on. It has been a huge success. We had approximately 400+ pieces of Gospel items distributed to the foot-traffic passing by during our two hours of ministry. Here are a “before” (left) and “after” (right) snap shots of the table – and other Gospel materials were also distributed not in the “before” photo:

Internet ArchiveBy clicking on the Internet Archive logo to the right >>> you can listen to the audio of the preaching from Matthew 24. It also includes the recording of an African man that approached Gary while preaching to “rebuke” him for wearing short pants. This man used the Scripture (at the time we could not recall the same) Psalm 147:10 which has no bearing to a man wearing short pants – it shows the legalism that is manifest in “churches” that people attend. The Psalm reads as follows when one reads it in context with verse 11:

10  He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11  The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy. ~ Psalm 147:10,11

A counter-correction would have been whether this man had ever read the account of king David dancing before the LORD as we read in 2 Samuel 6:14-23 and in the words of Michal the daughter of Saul (in verse 20) who “rebuked” king David, “How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!” Legalists will twist Scripture when the LORD sees one’s heart of rejoicing before the LORD / preaching the Gospel! This same African man was also caught in his own words when he referred to the beginning of Creation as “billions of years …”! A professing Christian duped by the University’s teachings of Darwinian evolution lies! Deception is rife!

A man named Samuel was also engaged on the audio calling him to repentance.

Friday March 27, 2015

On the Friday, brothers Marius and Gary proclaimed our Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified to the many varsity students that passed by. Approximately a further 250+ items of Gospel literature, various types of tracts, Gospel of John books, Scripture booklets and two Bibles were distributed in about two hours or so. The “before” and “after” snap shots are again available:

In the 1st Part of the preaching today the Scripture portion was:Internet Archive

1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. ~ 2 Timothy 3:1-5

IMG-20150327-00510 This day we also had some engaging conversations. Gary had a conversation with a young lady named Sijabulisile Khumalo (“Jabu”) who attends the Christ Apostle (CA) church, an African Traditional-type church, where there is a dress code for women that stigmatises whether she is a virgin or not by wearing a blue collar, which is part of the dress code uniform, or not, respectively. You can Internet Archivehear this conversation in Part 2 that can be found at the aforementioned link or by pressing the Internet Archive logo to the right >>>  

Whilst Gary was discussing issues with  Jabu, brother Marius was involved in a discussion with Zinhle Ntuli who also attends an IMG-20150327-00512African Traditional-style church where there is sacrificing that takes place, which is an abomination to Almighty God!

Later on Gary also had two men on separate occasions confess that the preaching of the Word of God was like darts in the heart or the word was cutting the heart. We need to pray for everyone who heard the word today, and especially for these young men, namely (hope the spelling is correct) Sumange and Sibusiso Zulu. May God save them and receive all the glory alone!

Brother Marius also took to “the box” for the first time and expounded upon the portion of Scripture of The Rich Man and Lazarus from Luke 16:19-31.

On the UKZN (Pietermaritzburg) Campus

A while ago whilst we were out on Church Street evangelising during our lunch break, Mark McDonogh was approached by a young African man named Mpho and his girlfriend. They enquired why we were on the streets and Mark explained to them that we were evangelising and he also witnessed to them. Regardt Reynolds, Neville le Roux and myself were out with Mark that day, and later Mark told us that the two persons he spoke to were Seventh-Day Adventists from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (Pietermaritzburg) Campus. They had asked him to bring a team of evangelists to the campus to show them how to evangelise the way we do and to be a part of the outreach they would be undertaking.

We agreed, and made them aware that we would gladly attend to preach the Law and the Gospel of Grace. This not only gave us an opportunity to witness to many students – and yes we also have the atheists / agnostics who believe in evolution here in South Africa, too – but it was an answer to prayer as we had been hoping to get on campus someday. We also told the ministry leader Mpho, who was hosting us, that we would not be there under their denomination. We were there to preach Jesus Christ and uplift His Holy Name.

That day arrived on Tuesday September 8, 2009 and we had some wonderful God-given conversations with many students. Although we never had a full-time cameraman available, you will get the feel of a day well spent preaching the Gospel on campus for the first time by us newbies.

Please check out the following link from the website CARM why Seventh-Day Adventism is a cult religion / denomination. Their doctrine is not biblical in all respects according to the inerrant infalliable Word of God.

Please pray for the Adventists that they will come to repentance and faith in the only true and living God – Jesus Christ as both Lord and Saviour.
