Introduction

Human Rights Day is celebrated as a public holiday in South Africa each year on March 21. As part of this introduction an extensive quote that appears at the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa’s website[1] is quoted here to record what the government regards as human rights, quote:

What are human rights?

Human rights are rights that everyone should have simply because they are human. In 1948, the United Nations defined 30 articles of human rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It established universal human rights on the basis of humanity, freedom, justice, and peace.

South Africa has included indivisible human rights in our own Bill of Rights, Chapter 2 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996. The articles of our Constitution can only be changed by a two-thirds majority in Parliament, which means it is difficult for anyone, including the government, to take away the basic rights of a citizen.

The Bill of Rights preserved in our Constitution is the cornerstone of our constitutional and representative democracy. The Constitution as our supreme law means that no laws may be passed that goes against it. The Bill of Rights also comprehensively addresses South Africa’s history of oppression, colonialism, slavery, racism and sexism and other forms of human violations. The Bill of Rights embeds the rights of all people in our country in an enduring affirmation of the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom.

Human Rights Day, 21 March

Human Rights Day in South Africa is historically linked with 21 March 1960, and the events of Sharpeville. On that day 69 people died and 180 were wounded when police fired on a peaceful crowd that had gathered in protest against the Pass laws. This day marked an affirmation by ordinary people, rising in unison to proclaim their rights. It became an iconic date in our country’s history that today we commemorate as Human Rights Day as a reminder of our rights and the cost paid for our treasured human rights. [. . .]

Modern era

When South Africa held its first democratic election, with Nelson Mandela elected as its first democratic President, 21 March, Human Rights Day was officially proclaimed a public holiday.

On Human Rights Day, South Africans are asked to reflect on their rights, to protect their rights and the rights of all people from violation, irrespective of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, whether they are foreign national or not – human rights apply to everyone, equally.

We must remain vigilant and report abuse and cruelty, such as human trafficking, child labour, forced labour and violence against women, children, and the aged and other vulnerable groupings of people.

What are your rights?

In terms of the Bill of Rights everyone has a right to life, equality and human dignity.

•All persons have a right to citizenship and security. Persons and groups are entitled to freedom of assembly, association, belief and opinion, and expression. They have the right to demonstrate, picket and petition; everyone has the right to be free from forced labour, servitude and slavery.

•All persons have a right to privacy and to exercise political rights; all have a right to access to information and just administration action. They have rights when arrested, detained and accused, and must have access to courts.

•All have a right to freedom of movement and residence and of trade, occupation and profession. In the workplace everyone has a right to engage in trade unions and labour movements. Anyone has the right to purchase property anywhere, and to a basic education. They have a right to language and culture and communities; and not least, freedom of religion and belief. The Bill of Rights also specifies the rights of persons belonging to cultural, religious or linguistic communities and the rights of children. In addition, there are specific laws to safeguard women and protect children.

•Protected rights include a healthy environment; housing, health care, food, water and social security.

Parliament’s Role in Human Rights Day

Parliament is guided by the values and principles of the Constitution. The tasks of Parliament are to represent and empower the people, and to facilitate meaningful and active involvement of civil society in its processes. The Constitutional functions of Parliament are to pass laws and oversee executive action. Parliament must ensure that democratic processes become well-known and that they reach all citizens of the country and that the civil liberties of every citizen is maintained.

According to the foregoing manifesto, are all treated equally when it comes to human rights? We will look at what transpires everyday in violation of rights of the citizens of South Africa and see that man-made laws or rights are in constant violation of the Creator GOD’s sovereign Law, statutes and decrees.

Abortions

Abortion We are told that every person has the right to life, yet abortions (which are the murder of unborn children) are practiced in hospitals and back street allies at the expense of taxpayers’ money and in ‘illegal’ abortuaries, respectively, where they who have no voice are butchered by evil and wicked executioners including the child’s murderous mother who is exercising ‘pro-choice’! Where are the rights for the unborn child who would want ‘pro-life’? Why punish the child for the sins of the parents? Children are a gift from the Creator, “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.” (Psalm 127:3-5).

Murders

Whilst 69 people lost their lives at Sharpeville through the wicked hearts of NP Apartheid forces, it is no different to the thousands who lost their lives through the ANC’s MK terrorist attacks upon soft civilian targets in the years that followed. How many of these dead were unrepentant sinners that were ushered into hell for all eternity by evil and wicked barbarous executioners? The total deaths due to political violence during the Apartheid years from 1948-1994, according to the Human Rights Committee (HRC) statistics, totalled 21,000 political deaths – of whom 14,000 people died during the five-year transition process from 1990 to 1994. Further analyses of the period June 1990 to July 1993 indicates a total of 8,580 (92%) of the 9,325 violent deaths were caused by Africans killing Africans, or as the news media often calls it, “Black on Black” violence. However, the security forces caused 518 deaths (5.6%) throughout this period.[2] The SA Police statistics for 1994-2000 record violent hate crimes especially against white Boers at 174,220. The murder statistics from 2005-2016 total 211,161.[3] [Unable to obtain statistics for the period 2001-2004 ~ Ed]

Murder Graph Graph of South Africa’s murder rate (murders per 100,000 people) over a 100 year period from 1915 to 2015. The murder rate increased rapidly in the 1980s reaching its peak in 1993 then decreasing until bottoming out in 2011.[4]

Where are the rights of the citizens of South Africa who were butchered and had their lives taken when they had the right to life? GOD’s Holy Word tells us, no murderer shall see the kingdom of GOD, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).

The ANC government has failed GOD and the citizens of South Africa, for we are told, “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” (Daniel 2:21). We also read, “But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” (Psalm 75:7). The government of the day has a responsibility before GOD to safeguard its citizens for we read, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.” (Romans 13:1-5).

Religion, Beliefs and Homosexuality

In the manifesto of human rights, the citizens are safeguarded “to protect their rights and the rights of all people from violation, irrespective of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, whether they are foreign national or not – human rights apply to everyone, equally.” However, everyone is not equal before the law when it comes to Christianity and homosexuals. The wicked practice of homosexuality takes preference over the conscience and beliefs of Christians when GOD’s Word commands and states that, “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.” (Leviticus 20:13).

Gay Pride

GOD says that He hands homosexuals over, “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: 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 1:26,27).

Yet if a Christian stands by their belief, convictions and conscience to warn a sodomite of GOD’s judgment and eternal justice in the lake of fire, or refuses to offer a service to a GOD-hating lawbreaker, then the Christian is persecuted for standing for Truth in righteousness to please his/her GOD. A stern warning, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! (Isaiah 5:20-23).

Conclusion

As can be seen from this tract, not everyone is treated equally with human rights. Some have more rights than others and we have not even looked at the vices that permeate our community spaces where we are bombarded with immodest dress that borders on public nudity, vulgarity and profanity, pornography, prostitution, xenophobia, drugs and alcohol abuse, occultism and witchcraft, and ancestral and idol worship that are all in violation of GOD’s Ten Commandments. We are reminded, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27) that GOD must judge according to His Holy and Righteous standard, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23). “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” (Romans 6:16). For, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” (1 John 3:8-10). To be truly set free from one’s sins, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. … If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:32,36). Today, REPENT and call upon the name of Jesus Christ to save you and give you peace with GOD. That is your only hope!

South_African_murder_rate Graph of South Africa’s murder rate (murders per 100,000 people) over a 100 year period from 1915 to 2015. The murder rate increased rapidly in the 1980s reaching its peak in 1993 then decreasing until bottoming out in 2011.[4]

Where are the rights of the citizens of South Africa who were butchered and had their lives taken when they had the right to life? GOD’s Holy Word tells us, no murderer shall see the kingdom of GOD, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).

The ANC government has failed GOD and the citizens of South Africa, for we are told, “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” (Daniel 2:21). We also read, “But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” (Psalm 75:7). The government of the day has a responsibility before GOD to safeguard its citizens for we read, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.” (Romans 13:1-5).

Religion, Beliefs and Homosexuality

In the manifesto of human rights, the citizens are safeguarded “to protect their rights and the rights of all people from violation, irrespective of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, whether they are foreign national or not – human rights apply to everyone, equally.” However, everyone is not equal before the law when it comes to Christianity and homosexuals. The wicked practice of homosexuality takes preference over the conscience and beliefs of Christians when GOD’s Word commands and states that, “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.” (Leviticus 20:13).

Gay Pride

GOD says that He hands homosexuals over, “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: 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 1:26,27).

Yet if a Christian stands by their belief, convictions and conscience to warn a sodomite of GOD’s judgment and eternal justice in the lake of fire, or refuses to offer a service to a GOD-hating lawbreaker, then the Christian is persecuted for standing for Truth in righteousness to please his/her GOD. A stern warning, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! (Isaiah 5:20-23).

Conclusion

As can be seen from this tract, not everyone is treated equally with human rights. Some have more rights than others and we have not even looked at the vices that permeate our community spaces where we are bombarded with immodest dress that borders on public nudity, vulgarity and profanity, pornography, prostitution, xenophobia, drugs and alcohol abuse, occultism and witchcraft, and ancestral and idol worship that are all in violation of GOD’s Ten Commandments. We are reminded, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27) that GOD must judge according to His Holy and Righteous standard, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23). “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” (Romans 6:16). For, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” (1 John 3:8-10). To be truly set free from one’s sins, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. … If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:32,36). Today, REPENT and call upon the name of Jesus Christ to save you and give you peace with GOD. That is your only hope!

‘HOLY WAR’ Against South Africa by Shaun Willcock

HolyWar2 To any South African wanting to know the true history of South Africa from 6th April 1652, and even before then, when the Portuguese explorers Diaz and Da Gama sailed around the southern African coasts, until the 1994 ‘democracy’, this is a highly recommended book. The historical book ‘HOLY WAR’ Against South Africa authored by Shaun Willcock is a well documented and researched resource, and certainly a must read for any person wanting to know the truth of South African history and not the re-written version we have today. Karl Marx said: “The first battlefield is the re-writing of history.” This book above should be an academic history text book – for school, university and theological students, as well as for the average man on the street. This book is grounded in evangelical biblical truth which shows the hand of GOD in all that has transpired in South Africa.

Here is the INTRODUCTION quoted from pages 5-7 of the book:

In April 1994, after decades in which South Africa was literally torn apart by a Red revolution of horrifying proportions, the Communist-controlled African National Congress came to power in this great land. The Marxist murderers and other assorted criminals who jubilantly hailed the dawn of a “New South Africa” had bombed and burned, shot and stabbed their way to power, leaving in their wake tens of thousands of people dead, brutally exterminated in the name of “liberation”. In order to achieve their goals, they had to clamber over a veritable mountain of corpses, a mountain of their making.

The issue of South Africa became one around which the entire world united, as it had never united before. The world acted in concert to destroy it. This book sets forth a major reason for this unprecedented global focus: the ambitions of the Vatican, operating through powerful political channels that, on the surface, would appear to have no connects with the Vatican or the Roman Catholic religion at all. The world, however, can be a strange place, and full of surprises; for one thing, Roman Catholicism is a political as well as a religious system, with a centuries-old lust for total world domination, and no scruples whatsoever about how to achieve it; for another thing, political rulers will enter into the most unlikely alliances in order to achieve their own ambitions. And they are well aware of the power of religion to move men, even entire populations. One religion in particular, immensely influential on a truly global scale: Roman Catholicism, now holding sway over almost one out of every five people on earth.

This book documents the immense role played by the Roman Catholic system, that religio-political institution pretending to be a Christian church, in the South African revolution. But it was not alone in this. The Papal system, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations (Rev.17:5), was the mastermind, certainly; but its religious daughters, those supposedly “Protestant” institutions affiliated with the South African Council of Churches and the World Council of Churches, were also deeply involved in supporting the revolution, and their diabolical involvement is amply documented here. This book emphasises the undeniable fact that the revolution would never have succeeded were it not for the enthusiastic, active and sustained support of these religious institutions, which, in the name of Christ, blasphemously threw their weight behind the Communist revolutionaries; so that it can be said, without fear of contradiction, that in a very real sense this was a religious revolution. A revolution waged as much with terribly distorted interpretations of the Bible as with bullets. A revolution directed as much by those paying allegiance to the Vatican, and to Geneva, as to Moscow.

Wicked men, falsely claiming to be Christians, through the centuries have done many terrible deeds. But our own twentieth century is replete with examples of religious barbarity. In the first four years of the last decade of the twentieth century, over 50 000 people were killed, in South Africa, by savage revolutionaries urged on, every step of the way, by Roman Catholic and Protestant religious leaders. To many, this may seem unbelievable. yet it is all too horrifyingly true, as the accumulated evidence of many years makes plain. The book pulls no punches, and the author makes no apology for this. Religious institutions brought untold suffering to the peoples of South Africa, and the truth must be told, in order to rip away the mask of piety and holiness which they wear with such hypocrisy and effrontery. Multitudes are deceived by them. The author urges every reader to look to Jesus Christ, the holy, harmless, undefiled, spotless Son of the living God, and where those who claim to be his followers do not bear his image, they should be shunned for the deceivers that they are.

Part One is a brief history of South Africa, from its beginnings until 1910. This section gives important background information, and examines the subject from a biblical perspective, tracing the hand of God in the affairs of this country, and analysing the various events in the light of the Lord’s sovereign purposes for nations and individuals. Part One, then, gives the historical backdrop to Part Two.

Part Two is concerned with South Africa from 1910 (the year of the Union) onwards; its primary focus being the part played by the Vatican, and various Protestant institutions, in the Communist revolution which for so many years engulfed this country, and which was finally victorious.

What is written in these pages reveals that the Papal Harlot, the centuries-old enemy of the truth, remains what she ever has been, and ever will be; and that, in our day, Protestant institutions, daughters of the Harlot, have imbibed her fanatical belief that the end justifies the means – even if those means include terrorism, revolution, untold suffering and bloodshed.

The author has also been at pains to show that the true and living God, the God of the Bible, is in absolute and sovereign control of all events, great and small, that occur on this earth. His purposes are being accomplished. Nothing is by chance, nothing is by accident. And the knowledge of this glorious truth ought to be of immense comfort and encouragement to the true Christian, whether he lives in South Africa or in some other part of the world. For of this the author is certain: we live in momentous times. Behind the scenes, great plans are being set in motion by wicked men. Only in Christ is there peace. Only the true Christian can lift his eyes, as it were, to heaven, and see the Almighty God, the Lord of heaven and earth, upon his throne, in absolute control of all events. And only to the true children of God did the Lord Jesus Christ speak those lovely words: “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).

Shaun Willcock 1994

This book, together with one of Shaun Willcock’s other books, which writer recommends too, titled The Madness of Multiculturalism*, speaks volumes as to why South Africa is presently a wicked, evil and depraved Marxist-communist nation under the wrath of Almighty GOD. This stems from the Vatican/ANC/SACP alliance who peddled a false gospel through their “liberation theology” and thereby deceived the majority of South Africans to be a part of the Harlot’s communistic revolution, which we continuously see being played out even today. History is repeating itself,

8  Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. 
9  By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed. ~ Job 4:8,9

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

Soli Deo Gloria

* Description of The Madness of Multiculturalism book:

The Madness of Multiculturalism cover.indd Cultural relativism is the false doctrine that all cultures are equally valid and good. And multiculturalism is the false doctrine that everyone must respect everyone else’s culture, and tolerate and even celebrate all cultural practices, so that all humans will live together in harmony as one big, happy, tolerant, multicultural family. But this is neither possible nor sensible. The fact is, multiculturalism is madness.

When we evaluate and judge cultures and cultural practices by the light of the Bible, we find that all cultures are definitely not equal; that those cultures which were once greatly influenced by Protestantism were superior to all others; and that no true Christian should respect cultural practices that are degraded and sinful. Cultural relativism and multiculturalism are being used to break down the influence and the superiority of western, once-Protestant-influenced culture, and they are simply two more weapons in Satan’s modern arsenal in his ceaseless war against the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jacob Zuma’s accursed gospel

On Friday March 25, 2016, the President of South Africa Mr Jacob Zuma attended the heretical Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) “Good Friday prayer” at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. It appears that Zuma is not a member of the UCKG and it would further appear that his attendance was one for electioneering purposes as the 2016 Municipal Elections are coming up.

Firstly, we will look at the news article as it is online and then secondly, we will dissect Zuma’s unbiblical rhetoric and finally, his anti-Christian unbiblical abominable slurs against Christianity and our Lord Jesus Christ as he blasphemes the Gospel of GOD.

Firstly, here is the news article: 

Pray for us as leaders – Zuma

2016-03-25 13:50 – Karabo Ngoepe, News24

President Jacob Zuma. (Gianluigi Guercia, AFP)Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma on Friday called on Christians to pray for politicians, as the devil was trying to interfere with their work.

“We are here to get blessings and prayers. We want you to pray for us as leaders so that when we make mistakes, you can ask God to forgive us because Satan is always around trying to derail us,” he told thousands of members of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg.

The country was faced with crime and drug abuse and prayers were needed to help fight these problems.

Zuma arrived to applause and cheering as he walked around the stadium. Thousands of people waved at him and Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane as his theme song “Yinde le ndlela” (The Road is Still Long) played in the background. Others in the stadium joined in the singing.

He hugged one child, to the mother’s excitement.

“We need love,” he told the crowd.

“We must love God and those who have been entrusted to do his work. On this day, when we remember Jesus, we also ask those in charge to pray for us,” he said in IsiZulu.

He called on the congregants to pray for Members of Parliament so they could behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner.

He professed his love for the church and said the atmosphere in the stadium made him want to attend church regularly.

People were made in the image of God and had rights that should be protected and respected, he said.

~ News24

Secondly, in the above article Zuma states that “We are here to get blessings and prayers.” At the outset, the President and his party were not there to worship the Lord Jesus Christ, and neither were the UCKG congregants. One of many reasons to start off with: Why was Zuma’s theme song “Yinde le ndlela” (The Road is Still Long) playing in the background when he arrived? At an “Easter gathering” a man was being praised and not the Lord Jesus Christ! This is idolatry and wickedness!

Jacob Zuma at the UCKG at Ellis Park, on Friday March 25, 2016With the ANC history of maladministration, fraud, corruption, theft and ungodly rule with abominable laws promulgated by the ruling government who rebel against the True GOD of Creation, it is more than “prayers for mistakes” that Zuma and the ANC need! It is not mistakes, but wicked sin that has been committed that Zuma and his party need to repent from! Christian prayers should be for their repentance toward GOD and their faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ (see Acts 20:21). Yes, Satan does seek out who he can devour (Zuma says “derail”), but it is the born again regenerated believers and not the unregenerated sinners who the apostle Peter speaks of, for it is written,

8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 
9  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. ~ 1 Peter 5:8

The sins being committed in parliament are as a result of one’s personal “own lust” and they need to own up and accept their own personal sinful actions, for it is written,

14  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. ~ James 1:14,15

Unregenerated sinners who rebel continuously against GOD with their wicked deeds are children of the devil, as we read, for it is written,

8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 
9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 
10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. ~ 1 John 3:8-10

Jacob Zuma at the podium With regards to Zuma’s statement regarding the members of parliament who are to “behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner”, they will only be able to do so if they are born again of the Holy Spirit, which is from above and not by man’s devices. Ubuntu, Batho Pele and other man made works of self-righteousness will always come short of GOD’s holy and perfect standard. As before quoted, to “behave and conduct themselves in a respectful manner”, their first priority to please GOD in good governance would be found in the Christian principles recorded in Scripture, for it is written,

22  Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
23  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25  But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. ~ Colossians 3:22-25

Therefore, all parliamentary work should be to please the Lord “for ye serve the Lord Christ” and that is if you are born again. For this is confirmed in Scripture, for it is written,

12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:12-16

Bp. Marcelo presents President Jacob Zuma a Nothing to Lose 3 book (Facebook) All this starts with repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and the ANC government should show they are committed to the ways of GOD by repenting of the abominable laws they have promulgated through parliament since 1994 to present. Government should not think that GOD will bless South Africa whilst there is present lawlessness, which is sin, for he that transgresses GOD’s law sins (see 1 John 3:4). The lawlessness which we speak of is practiced through the legislation of the land with the legalisation of abortion (which is murder of the unborn), homosexuality and sodomy, pornography, gambling, redefining GOD’s marriage laws by wicked men, racist legislation that discriminates against ‘white-males’ in business and in sport, and religious idolatry by removing the One True GOD from the schools, the universities, the law courts and parliament through Marxist-atheistic evolution and the systematic indoctrination of the masses keeping them in bondage from knowing the Truth – for Jesus Christ is Truth! This also includes the worship of ancestors as ‘mediators’ when GOD’s Word clearly states that there is only one mediator between GOD and men, for it is written,

5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 
6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. ~ 1 Timothy 2:5,6

The amadlozi (ancestors) do not speak to GOD on behalf of  Africans on earth, as President Jacob Zuma and many other parliamentarians believe as well as their supporters and voters do, too. It is brazenly spoken by them that it is their African traditions and customs and they cannot turn from those practices. GOD’s Word rebukes this belief when His Son Jesus Christ says, “. . . Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Matthew 15:6b). And, “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” (Mark 7:13). For in Deuteronomy 18 we also read that it is forbidden for people on earth to speak or consult with dead people in acts of necromancy, nor are they to consult with sangomas (witchdoctors), as we read, for it is written,

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,
11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. ~ Deuteronomy 18:10-12

You cannot mix the profane (sinful wicked behaviour) with that which is Holy and belongs entirely to GOD! This is the unholy, abominable and wicked practices that takes place amongst many of the African Traditionalist Churches. Scripture tells us,

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

Which brings us to the final issues that clearly shows that President Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma – even though his religious background is listed as Protestantism according to Wikipedia – does not fear GOD, but teaches falsehood with his blasphemous statements taking scripture out of context, twisting scripture and teaching doctrines of devils (see 1 Timothy 4:1) to the gullible and deceived masses. Zuma is perverting the gospel of Christ (see Galatians 1:6,7) which renders Zuma being “accursed” (see Galatians 1:8,9). He has publically ‘preached deception’ as can be read from the public media hereunder.

President looking at testimonies (Facebook). If Zuma was a ‘Christian’ his life would be decidedly different in the public arena. He is a polygamist with four ‘wives’ and who also has a history of adulterous fornication (sex outside the bounds of marriage). It is estimated that he has fathered +20 children. He raised a further moral scandal when he was charged in 2005 with raping an HIV-positive 31 year-old woman whilst not using a condom and then stated in court that he took a shower afterwards to “cut the risk of contracting HIV.” This statement was condemned by the judge, health experts, and AIDS activists. He was acquitted of the rape charge. He has also been dogged with many fraud and corruption charges against him which may still be brought before the courts, and just recently he and the National Assembly were found guilty in March 2016 by the Constitutional Court of South Africa for failing to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, in respect of his R248 million Nkandla upgrade saga – subsequently Zuma has to pay back tax-payers’ money, which amount is still to be determined within 60 days from the ConCourt ruling and the final repayment is to be made within 45 days thereafter.

Now, hereunder are the previous media reports where Jacob Zuma openly blasphemes the Gospel of GOD:

On May 5, 2008, Zuma said in an article titled ‘ANC to rule until Jesus comes back’, quote:

“We shall build this organisation. Even God expects us to rule this country because we are the only organisation which was blessed by pastors when it was formed.

“It is even blessed in Heaven. That is why we will rule until Jesus comes back. We should not allow anyone to govern our city (Cape Town) when we are ruling the country,” he said.

~ IOL : News / Politics

On February 7, 2011, Zuma blasphemed salvation through Jesus Christ alone (see John 14:6) by saying a vote for the ANC guarantees you entry into heaven. The article can be read at Churches to seek meeting with Zuma over ‘blasphemy’ (News24) and Outrage at Zuma’s promises of heaven (Mail & Guardian), quote: 

Zuma, who also heads the ruling ANC, reportedly told party supporters in Mthatha: “When you vote for the ANC, you are also choosing to go to heaven. When you don’t vote for the ANC you should know that you are choosing that man who carries a fork . . . who cooks people.

“When you are carrying an ANC membership card, you are blessed. When you get up there, there are different cards used but when you have an ANC card, you will be let through to go to heaven.”

~ News24

On December 21, 2011, Jacob Zuma was reported in an article titled Jacob Zuma blames Christianity for South Africa’s problems, quote:

Mr Zuma, South Africa’s first Zulu president, told an event in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal that Christianity brought about “orphans” and “old-age homes” thereby destroying Africa’s traditions, according to South Africa’s Times newspaper.

“As Africans, long before the arrival of religion and [the] gospel, we had our own ways of doing things,” he said.

“Those were times that the religious people refer to as dark days but we know that, during those times, there were no orphans or old-age homes. Christianity has brought along these things.”

Mr Zuma’s office later issued a statement saying that his comments had been reported in a “misleading manner” and were aimed at ensuring South Africans do not neglect African culture.

“While we should embrace western culture and Christianity, we should not neglect the African ways of doing things,” said Mac Maharaj, presidency spokesman.

~ The Telegraph

In the same article reference is made to necromancy and also that he “was made an honorary pastor” which means absolutely nothing as his doctrine is man-centred heretical traditions and customs, quote:

During the ritual wedding the bride, Madiba, 38, was introduced to the elders and ancestors, two years after Mr Zuma, 69, paid the Ilobolo (dowry).

In 2007, Mr Zuma was made an honorary pastor at a meeting of independent charismatic churches.

~ The Telegraph 

On November 26, 2012, we read of Jacob Zuma calling on the ancestors to protect him in an act of necromancy and by slaughtering 12 cows, which is an abomination in the sight of GOD Almighty (see Deuteronomy 18:10-12 above). The article appears at Zuma calls on ancestors, quote:

KwaZulu-Natal – President Jacob Zuma, who faces mounting criticism and a strong attempt to remove him as ANC leader, has turned to his ancestors for help before Mangaung.

Zuma’s family slaughtered 12 cows and burnt traditional incense at his Nkandla homestead, at a ceremony in which Zulu warriors danced, sang songs and brandished traditional weapons.

ANC leaders were nowhere to be seen, but Zuma, in leopard skin, lifted his spear and danced as thousands prayed for him to win a second term as ANC president.

Inkosi Bheki Zuma gave him a Zulu shield and spear, and told him to use the weapons to protect himself from his ANC opponents.

. . .

The ceremony at Nkandla appeared to be a repeat of what Zuma did in the run-up to the 2007 Polokwane conference, when he visited King Goodwill Zwelithini to get his blessing. The meat, cooked on a fire, was dished out to guests, who also enjoyed traditional beer.

“We are here to give our father a send-off to Mangaung. With this ceremony we are now sure he is protected and he will come back to celebrate with us,” said Nomthandazo Zuma.

Buses transported family members and relatives from around KZN. The ceremony started at the homestead of the Nxamalala clan’s Bheki Zuma, where traditional incense was burnt, a symbol of communicating with the ancestors. Zuma then led armed warriors to his old homestead, Entembeni.

The ceremony ended in his luxurious homestead, where his brother Michael and other elders continued to talk to the ancestors. Michael gave a rundown of Zuma’s credentials as a freedom fighter who had spent time in prison and in exile. Towards the end of the ceremony, Zuma’s son Edward instructed police and bodyguards to escort journalists, including those from The Mercury, out of his homestead.

“Who invited you? Who told you to come here?” he asked.

~ IOL : News / Politics

On October 7, 2013, IOL reported in Zuma in new government, religion row, quote:

Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma on Sunday walked a controversial tightrope between invoking God for his administration and the official oath of office in which politicians in government pledge to do their job “so help me God”.

Jacob Zuma getting "blessed" in Giyani, Limpopo At a church service in Giyani, Limpopo, on Sunday, Zuma told members of the 33rd Presbyterian Synod to pray for the government – and for politicians who insulted each other.

“Whether we like it or not, God has made a connection between the government and the church. That’s why He says you, as a church, should pray for it,” Zuma, who spoke in Zulu throughout, is quoted as saying.

“Because if you allow them to insult those in authority, you are creating a society that is angry with itself.”

~ IOL : News / Politics 

On January 6, 2014, it was reported that Jacob Zuma was joining with the Roman Catholic Church to re-translate the Bible into isiZulu as can be read at this article Zuma contributes to Zulu bible translation (2014 report 1), Zuma pays up for new Zulu Bible (2014 report 2) and Zuma foundation to co-sponsor Zulu bible translation (repeat report in 2015), quote:

President Jacob Zuma receives blessings from Bishop Pius Mlungisi Dlungwane at St Joseph Catholic Church in Marianhill near Durban. (GCIS, Sapa) Durban – The Jacob Zuma Foundation has teamed up with the Roman Catholic Church to translate the original Greek and Hebrew bible to IsiZulu, The Mercury reported on Monday.

The project was expected to take at least three years to ensure accuracy and no omissions as happened when it was translated from English.

President Jacob Zuma donated R500 000 on Sunday on behalf of the foundation. The project would be headed by Bishop Mlungisi Dlungwane of Mariannhill in KwaZulu-Natal.

Zuma applauded the 32 people who would undertake the task, saying it would change people’s lives, the paper reported.

“The bible is a holy book. That is why believers should get the gist of it as it is, and it needs to be translated properly,” Zuma was quoted as saying.

“Zulu should not climb on top of other languages, but what is written should be translated directly from that language into Zulu.”

He encouraged business people to contribute to the project.

On January 9, 2014, Jacob Zuma says he used witchcraft in this MailOnline article South African president Zuma reveals he used to practice witchcraft against white people.

On September 1, 2014, in CP WORLD’s post titled South Africa President Zuma Asks God to Come Down and Cleanse People Before Second Coming, it is reported, quote:

South African President Jacob Zuma has speculated on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, calling on God to come down for a few years and “cleanse” people from their sins even before He fully returns.

“But this time not to fetch us, but just to come and cleanse us of our sins, because we have caused more damage than before,” Zuma said during a meeting with ambassadors and commissioners in Pretoria on Sunday, SAPA reported.

“He must just come for a few years to help us so that we are ready for when he finally comes.”

~ The Christian Post

In a December 28, 2014, News24 article Zuma calls for a speedy Second Coming, it is reported, quote:

Durban – Addressing a group of elderly people at a Christmas gathering at his Nkandla homestead, President Jacob Zuma called on Christian priests to pray to God to send Jesus back to Earth because of the many sins in the country.

According to the Sunday Times, Zuma had been speaking off the cuff on Saturday and claimed there were many churches in the country “sinning too much”.

“The sins we have today are more than those that Jesus came to salvage. I ask the priests to ask God to send His son to come back again to cleanse our sins,” he said.

“He [God] must send him [Jesus] again. This time we won’t crucify him,” he added.

~ News24

On January 18, 2015, we read in an article Zuma gets church’s highest honour from the Greek Orthodox Church, quote:

Pretoria – The Pope and Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church of Alexandria and All Africa: Theodoris II on Sunday bestowed President Jacob Zuma with the highest honour the church can give to a foreign national.

Paying a courtesy call to Zuma while doing church work, Theodoris II bestowed Zuma with the Order of Saint Mark.

“With this I give you great blessing,” Theodoris II said speaking through an interpreter as he handed Zuma a personal cross and a certificate.

Zuma embraced Theodoris II and his delegation and said the gesture was unexpected.

“Thank you very much for this honour. I thought it was just a visit. I did not know that there was a surprise,” Zuma said.

~ News24

As can be seen by Zuma’s fruit, he is not a born-again believing Christian, but a lost soul, an ecumenical heretic that sides with the apostate churches. GOD’s Word gives stern warnings, as it is written,

20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24  Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25  Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. ~ Isaiah 5:20-25

16  The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17  The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. ~ Psalms 9:16,17

Open Letter to the South African President: Mr. Jacob Zuma (February 26, 2010)

The Gospel . . . Racism and South African History

On Saturday January 30, 2016, Jono and Gary went to minister outside the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg at the Maritzburg United vs. Mamelodi Sundowns ABSA Premiership soccer match. We would be having conversations, handing out Christian literature/tracts and proclaiming the Law and the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in the open-air.

Mbongeni and Snqobile The early evening started off well with a conversation with two gate-stewarts named Mbongeni and Snqobile (to the left) who both were very open and receptive to the Law and the Gospel message of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray for their souls and the many other hearers of the Good News.

Jono and a brother who attends their fellowshipThe crowds are arrivingFans at the entrance to the stadiumFans milling around as night falls 

There were huge crowds of people out that evening and sadly many are lost in their sins, many were drunk even before entering the grounds, and sadly there is still that scourge of racism from black Africans demanding their land back; as one man said, “Give back our land then we can talk!” about Christianity. We white Africans were Jono listening to this racist man - please pray for his soulsubjected to some racist slurs whilst handing out Christian tracts and preaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. A short video revealing an African man’s heart – seen to the right speaking to Jono – is posted here to show the wickedness that exists in men’s hearts, as we can read in GOD’s Holy Word,

9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 
10  I 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 

From the video you will learn sadly of a false history. This is largely due to a lack of knowledge which may well be from a lack of education. However, the history of South Africa has largely been changed to fit men’s political ideologies to further their own agendas for wicked gain and control of people groups. Karl Marx said, “Democracy is the road to socialism.” How true that quote is when one considers that the African National Congress (ANC) comrades were trained under Stalinism and Marxism ideologies and are in a tripartite alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and COSATU (a workers’ union that can cripple the South African economy at will with their strike actions). It is therefore no surprise that the South African history has been changed to fit with the governing socialist-communism agenda to further their propaganda. Since 1994 to present 2016 (22 years) South Africa has declined under the lack of leadership, maladministration and fraud which has seen a once prospering nation financially raped and economically plundered to a BBB-credit rating of only one level above ‘junk status’ according to Fitch Ratings in December 2015. Even in the so-called dark days of apartheid, writer does not advocate apartheid, the South African Rand (ZAR) currency was stronger against the US Dollar (USD) and the British Pound (GBP) trading in the positive, at times +2:1, where our Rand was stronger than foreign currencies. Historically, the South African Rand reached an all time high of R16.84 in January 2016 and a record low of R0.67 in June 1973 against the US$. Whilst South Africa had economic sanctions imposed against her in the 1980s the Rand still held its value against the US$! Since 1994 the ZAR has also reached an all time high against the GBP of R24.51 on 11 January 2016. Now we are seen as a ‘third world beggar’ nation that pleads poverty yet millions and billions of Rand are wasted, misspent, and pilfered through governmental schemes, like travel-gate, Nkandla-gate, tender-entrepreneur-gate, et al! This UCT 001beautiful land of ours that belongs to all peoples’ groups is slowly being destroyed from the Presidency’s office at the Union Buildings through the corridors of parliament downwards to the man on the street, the fiscal has become a  joke, crime is out of control, and arson appears acceptable when students destroy the universities and torch priceless portraits as happened at UCT – learning institutions of our future leaders. It is outright wickedness that shows these rebellious heathen thugs as reprobate in their actions. Where are the law enforcement agencies? Where is the rule of law? Anarchy prevails! While all of this lawlessness is playing out across the landscape of our society various people groups are being marginalised and victimised by these actions. As can be seen in the photograph hereunder a barbarous statement is made on a Tee-shirt: “KILL ALL WHITES”. This incites hatred, racism and xenophobia against a particular race group!

UCT 002 UCT 003 UCT 004UCT 005 UCT 006 UCT 007 UCT 008 UCT 009 UCT 010UCT 011

Continued political speeches enforcing apartheid rhetoric effectually indoctrinates the majority of the black Africans by bringing up a distorted past that portrays all white Africans as racists of the apartheid regime. Not all whites are to be tarred and feathered with one brush! Not all stood for the apartheid regime and in many quarters English speaking whites were not always given the same working opportunities as Afrikaans speaking whites during the apartheid years. At the same time, you cannot class all Afrikaans speaking whites in the same category of the apartheid regime! We are white Africans for we were born in Africa. GOD’s Word is very clear about our habitation as we read,

26  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; ~ Acts 17:26

How to identify a 'Racist' GOD “hath determined the times appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” – that is where we should live. I am therefore proud to be a white African, however, sinful humanity will call being ‘white’ racist and being a supremacist!

So here is a brief overview of South African history pertaining to apartheid, and Jan van Riebeeck’s landing at Table Bay on April 6, 1652. Some even believe the absurdity that apartheid came to these shores with  Jan van Riebeeck, a devout Dutch reformed Christian, not to be confused with the ‘Dutch Reformed church’ of the apartheid era. Apartheid “officially” only existed during the period from 1948 to 1994, a time period of 46 years. The term apartheid was introduced into South African politics in 1948 as part of the election campaign by D.F. Malan’s Herenigde Nasionale Party (HNP – ‘Reunited National Party’). From the 1950’s the ANC’s anti-apartheid “peaceful” Defiance Campaign was orchestrated. After the SA Police had tragically opened fire at a Defiance Campaign held at Sharpeville killing 69 and wounding 186 and thereafter the South African Government banned the ANC and the PAC on March 30, 1960, the ANC commenced their retaliation with their terrorist armed-struggle in 1961, with their military wing Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) carrying out in 18 months 200 acts of sabotage.  From 1961 to 1990 MK engaged in many incidents of bombings, torture and murder, killing hundreds of civilians. These attacks, for there are always two sides to a story, also included these two soft civilian targets by way of example to demonstrate the atrocious terror inflicted on civilians, both black and white, amongst others –

Magoo’s Bar is bombed” which report reads as follows:

Saturday, 14 June 1986

Three people died and sixty-nine are injured in a bomb explosion in Magoo’s Bar on the Durban beach. An ANC’s arm wing uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) cell, led by Robert McBride, planted a bomb in a car outside the popular “Why Not Magoo’s Bar”, with the belief that the place was frequented by security branch police. There was a campaign at that time by MK members to attack police stations and places frequented by police. McBride was caught and convicted, and later granted both a reprieve from death row, and amnesty by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

and “Bomb in Benoni Wimpy kills Mary” which report reads as follows:

Saturday, 30 July 1988

Mary-Anne D’Oliveira Netto Serrano (21) was killed in a bomb explosion in the Wimpy Bar [Restaurant] at the Benoni Plaza, Benoni on the East Rand. About sixty [66] people were injured, of whom nine seriously. Four men, Tebogo [Christopher] Kebotlhale, Molwedi Mokoena, Phumzi [Ernest] Sigasa and Elfas Mabore Ndhlovu who declared themselves as ANC members, applied for amnesty to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) for the bombing in Benoni and an ambush outside Lindela Hostel in Katlehong in 1988. They alleged that they had targeted the Wimpy, because they believed it was a regular meeting place of police officers. The four men were granted amnesty in 1999.

The ensuing terrorism ultimately pressured the Nationalist government and led to the South African State President F.W. de Klerk – of the now defunct Nationale Party (NP – ‘National Party’) – beginning negotiations to end apartheid, culminating in the multi-racial one-man-one-vote democratic elections of 1994. De Klerk began the process of dismantling apartheid with the release of Mandela’s mentor and several other political prisoners in October 1989. Nelson Mandela (born 18 July 1918 – died 5 December 2013?) was released from the Victor Verster Prison on February 11, 1990. The official abolition of apartheid occurred in 1991 with the repeal of the last of the remaining apartheid laws, but it is widely regarded that apartheid fell at the 1994 democratic general elections. The scars of the apartheid years were finally put to rest, so it seemed, at the subsequent Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). However, this is far from the truth as we still see and hear that the post-1994 State of the Nation Address (SONA) by the Presidents of the new South Africa continue reminding the citizens of the apartheid years using it as a ‘fear tactic’ to win votes and also as if the ruling ANC party still have ‘an enemy to get rid of,’ and this is into their 22nd year of rule (1994-2016)! Many of today’s youth were not even born during the apartheid years yet the Marxist ANC government still continues indoctrinating young and old minds alike about apartheid never putting the past to rest! This is why South Africa as a nation will never progress as it holds onto the scars and unforgiveness of yesteryear. Two wrongs do not make a right! Scripture tells us,

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

While people suffered and mourned under the wicked apartheid regime, today post-apartheid people are still suffering and mourning under the wicked rule of the ANC-led government!

Portrait of Jan van Riebeeck landing in Table Bay, meeting with the KhoiIn the video posted above the man being recorded states that when Jan van Riebeeck arrived at the Cape there were no women with them and earlier he had stated that the Dutch raped the indigenous Khoikhoi women! That statement incites hatred and makes false accusations against a particular people group, which is racist and xenophobic. For the record, whilst writer at the time indicated that he was not sure of the number of women who accompanied Jan van Riebeeck and his crew, it was ascertained that “8 women” accompanied them and is recorded here to complete the historical record:

On 24 December 1651, accompanied by his wife [Maria] and son, Jan van Riebeeck set off from Texel in The Netherlands for the Cape of Good Hope. Van Riebeeck had signed a contract with the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to oversee the setting up of a refreshment station to supply Dutch ships on their way to the East. Sailing on the Dromedaris with two other ships, the Rejiger and De Goede Hoop, Van Riebeeck was accompanied by 82 men and 8 women. [writer’s emphasis]

When Van Riebeeck left The Netherlands in 1651, the Council of Policy, a bureaucratic governing structure for the refreshment station, had already been established. On board the Dromedaris Van Riebeeck conducted meetings with his officials – minutes of the meetings of the Council of Policy, dated from December 1651, have been carefully archived.

While white South Africans are collectively termed as “Europeans” and seen as colonials or colonists who have “stolen the black’s land” this is also so far from the truth. In The Witness newspaper dated Friday, March 4, 2016, you can read an extract on page 2, which full report has been gleaned from the internet, which appears here, under a heading titled,

Land date ‘unfair’

Zuma says 1913 cut-off lopsided against SA blacks

CAPE TOWN – Should the 1913 cut off-date for land claims be changed to the 1800s? President Jacob Zuma raised the question as he opened the National House of Traditional Leaders in Cape Town on Thursday.

“The very law that we have today to claim is lopsided against the black people. It is very difficult to prove that the land belonged to the ancestors and very easy to say we can’t have the land. That’s how the law is.”

“Was the decision to make 1913 the cut-off date correct? Perhaps yes. But was the land taken in 1913?

Most of the land was taken in the 1800s. Very little land was taken after 1913. This was when the colonialisation of South Africa was consolidated, he said.

He added later that he did not care if people called him names over his statements.

Zuma said that the 1913 Native Land Act, which banned blacks from buying or renting land, was merely about white colonialists shoring up whatever fertile land they had not yet claimed for themselves.

“I could forgive the period before [the 1800s]. It would be reasonable,” he said to murmurs of approval from the royalty and high chiefs assembled before him.

“The dispossession of land is the source of the poverty and inequality which have become the ugly hallmark of our nation and an impediment to the future of shared prosperity.”

He quoted former ANC secretary general Sol Plaatjie, who wrote that when the Land Act came into force, black men went to sleep owning land, and woke up being worse off than slaves.

Zuma said: “I believe as a son of a black man, and a black man… that we need to shift that cut-off date. But we need to find a reasonable way of addressing the issue. Within the Constitution, within the law. But look at the facts. Where do these people in informal settlements come from? Where is their land? Is it a lie that their land was taken?”

South Africa reopened its land claims process in 2014. It would run until June 2019. Every week, new claims were gazetted. On February 23, the National Assembly passed amendments to the Land Expropriation Act. They make matters clearer, including the administrative processes involved and the land owner’s rights.

Zuma’s comments come at the same time as some student organisations tear down symbols of colonial era lawmakers and soldiers and tell white people that their forefathers stole land in South Africa.

The EFF has also made land redistribution one of its top priorities.

In the National Assembly on Tuesday, FF Plus leader Pieter Groenewald said Zuma’s comments about land, which he made at the ANC’s birthday celebration in Rustenburg in January, were against nation building, and racist.

Groenewald reacted when ANC Chief Whip Stone Sizani stood up to say that the land was taken at the barrel of a gun.

Zuma said last year he urged traditional leaders to join efforts in claiming land, rather than lodging competing claims. He said he looked forward to debating his address in Tshwane on March 22.

For the record, land/territories/colonies can be annexed in two ways: Either through war/combat or by way of peaceful negotiations concluded by signing a deed/acceding land by agreement or sale. An extract from the South African History Online website that deals with Jan van Riebeeck’s Dutch/European bureaucratic framework wherein he operated would be to negotiate the sale or renting of land with strangers in a culture using written records supported by a bureaucratic system of governance. Hence Van Riebeeck, coming as he did from a bureaucratic culture with a unilateral, albeit written, mandate to establish a refreshment station, refused to acknowledge that land ownership could be organised in ways different from the Dutch/European way. In other words, if there were no written documents confirming land ownership, the land was free for use, renting, purchase or sale. The extract reads as follows:

Although the VOC did not originally intend to establish a colony at the Cape, permits were issued in February 1657 to free nine company servants (who became the Free Burghers) to farm along the Liesbeeck River in order to deal with a wheat shortage. They were given as much land as they could cultivate in three years but were forbidden to trade with anyone other than the VOC. With the number of private farms increasing, by 1659 the station was producing enough to supply any passing ship. The station also began to experience a chronic labour shortage and because the Khoisan were seen as ‘uncooperative’, slaves were imported from Batavia (now northern Jakarta) and Madagascar in 1657.

The land on which the Dutch farmed was used by the Khoikhoi and the San, who lived a semi-nomadic culture which included hunting and gathering. Since they did not have a written culture, they had neither written title deeds for their land, nor did they have the bureaucratic framework within which to negotiate the sale or renting of land with strangers from a culture using written records supported by a bureaucratic system of governance. Hence Van Riebeeck, coming as he did from a bureaucratic culture with a unilateral, albeit written, mandate to establish a refreshment station, refused to acknowledge that land ownership could be organised in ways different from the Dutch/European way. He denied the Khoisan rights and title to the land, claiming that there was no written evidence of the true ownership of the land. Consequently in 1659 the Khoikhoi embarked on the first of a series of unsuccessful armed uprisings against the Dutch invasion and appropriation of their land – their resistance would continue for at least 150 years.

In response to the growing skirmishes with the local population, in 1660 Van Riebeeck planted a wild almond hedge to protect his settlement. By the end of the same year, under pressure from the Free Burghers, Van Riebeeck sent the first of many search parties to explore the hinterland. Van Riebeeck remained leader of the Cape until 1662. By the time he left the settlement in May 1662 it had grown to 134 officials, 35 Free Burghers, 15 women, 22 children and 180 slaves.

It should also be noted that the indigenous black African tribes, which among others include the Sotho, the Xhosa, the Zulu, the Basotho, the Tswana, the Pondo, etc. who were all originally from the greater Nguni tribe from western and central Africa who migrated south and settled in southern Africa which is now South Africa. The indigenous tribes of the Nguni were not originally from the areas which they came to occupy, but through many tribal wars came to stake claim to the land. Just as with the Khoikhoi and San of the western region of southern Africa, the Nguni indigenous tribes’ claims to their land were through oral tradition as they had neither written title deeds for their land, nor did they have the bureaucratic framework within which to negotiate the sale or renting of land. Land was obtained by tribal wars/combats and therefore there are no records prior to European colonialists establishing a written culture of archiving records of land ownership.

This part of history is not told to the majority of black Africans by the politicians. Neither are the facts of a legitimately signed title deed between Piet Retief, a Dutch reformist Christian, and Zulu King Dingane, where Dingane gave vast tracts of land rightfully to the Boers in Natal. On that same day, February 6, 1838, Piet Retief and his Voortrekker party were massacred at Hlomo amabuto, uMgungundlovu. In hundreds of historical documents it is recorded that King Dingane had met with Piet Retief, a leader of the Voortrekkers, in November 1837 and it was agreed that in return for the recovering of some stolen cattle from a rival Chief Sekonyela, Dingane would sign a deed of cession of lands (written in English) for the benefit of the Voortrekkers. Wikipedia records the record as follows,

It is generally believed that Dingane knew what he was signing, although he could not have had any formal education, and could not have read the contents of the document, nor could have understood the concept of permanent land ownership, since it was not a custom of the Zulus to permanently assign land to individuals. On 6 February 1838, after two days of feasting, the chief had Retief and his diplomatic party killed. They had been told to leave their firearms outside the royal kraal. Suddenly, when the dancing had reached a frenzied climax, King Dingane leapt to his feet and shouted Bulalani abatagati! (Kill the wizards!). The men were totally overpowered and dragged away to a hill called kwaMatiwane, named after a chief who had been killed there. Retief and his men were savagely butchered to death. It is alleged by some that the reason why they were killed was that they withheld some of the cattle recovered from Chief Sekonyela. The general opinion is that Dingane did not wish to yield the land ceded to them in the treaty and mistrusted the presence of the Voortrekkers. At the same time, Dingane’s forces massacred Retief’s undefended trek party, about 500 Boers and native servants, including women and children. The Boers called this the Weenen massacre. The nearby present-day town of Weenen (Dutch for “weeping”) was named by early settlers in memory of the massacre.

In a further act of war, Dingane ordered his army also to seek and kill the group of Voortrekkers under Andries Pretorius. The Zulu impis attacked the Voortrekker encampment [laager], but they were crushingly defeated in the ensuing Battle of Blood River [Afrikaans: Slag van Bloedrivier; Zulu: iMpi yaseNcome] on 16 December 1838. An estimated 3,000+ Zulus were killed from an estimated strength of 12,000-21,000 men, while three Voortrekkers were slightly wounded from a strength of 464 Pioneers + 200 servants.

Following the decisive Voortrekker victory at Blood River, Andries Pretorius and his “victory commando” recovered the remains of the Retief party. They buried them on 21 December 1838.

Also recovered was the undamaged deed of cession from Retief’s leather purse, written by Jan  Gerritze Bantjes, Retief’s secretary, as later verified by a member of the “victory commando”, E.F. Potgieter. Two exact copies survive, (either of which could be original) but legend states the original deed disappeared in transit to the Netherlands during the Anglo-Boer War.

Another document that can be read from Missionary Owen’s eye witness account, is: The Great Murder: Chapter 8 of ‘The Great Trek’.

South Africa has a government that GOD has allowed for a season, just as GOD raised up Pharaoh for HIS own purposes, as we read,

17  For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
18  Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. ~ Romans 9:17,18

And Pharaoh and Egypt were judged of GOD Who raises and destroys nations, for GOD has all righteous, just authority over HIS creation, as we read,

12  With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
13  With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
14  Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.
15  Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.
16  With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.
17  He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.
18  He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.
19  He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty. 
20  He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged. 
21  He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty. 
22  He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. 
23  He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them
again.
24  He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.
25  They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man. ~ Job 12:12-25

In Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary we read concerning Job 12:12-25 the following,

This is a noble discourse of Job concerning the wisdom, power, and sovereignty of God, in ordering all the affairs of the children of men, according to the counsel of His own will, which none can resist. It were well if wise and good men, who differ about lesser things, would see how it is for their honour and comfort, and the good of others, to dwell most upon the great things in which they agree. Here are no complaints, or reflections. He gives many instances of God’s powerful management of the children of men, overruling all their counsels, and overcoming all their oppositions. Having all strength and wisdom, God knows how to make use, even of those who are foolish and bad; otherwise there is so little wisdom and so little honesty in the world, that all had been in confusion and ruin long ago. These important truths were suited to convince the disputants that they were out of their depth in attempting to assign the Lord’s reasons for afflicting Job; his ways are unsearchable, and his judgments past finding out. Let us remark what beautiful illustrations there are in the word of God, confirming his sovereignty, and wisdom in that sovereignty: but the highest and infinitely the most important is, that the Lord Jesus was crucified by the malice of the Jews; and who but the Lord could have known that this one event was the salvation of the world?

~ Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

This nation’s only hope is to cry out in sackcloth and ashes to the One and Only True and Living GOD – the GOD of Abraham, the GOD of Isaac, and the GOD of Jacob – Who is the GOD of Creation Who has commanded men everywhere to repent! YHVH has called the nations to turn back to HIM! Let GOD not bring a famine of HIS Word upon this nation or any other through wickedness, as we read,

11  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
12  And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. ~ Amos 8:11,12

Judgment Day is coming . . . and before then, salvation of GOD can only be obtained through the Lord Jesus Christ – or else those who are not born again will stand naked, poor and condemned before GOD’s Judgment Seat. South Africa – Repent today . . .Soli Deo Gloria

Open Letter to the South African President: Mr. Jacob Zuma

South African President Jacob Zuma and three of his wives

Dear Mr President,

This letter, I believe, is written to you at a time when this country is crying for proper governance. Before and ever since you have taken the presidential reigns of this lovely country South Africa, the press has had a field day with your presidential and private lifestyles — the facts are that you have made the headlines for mostly the wrong reasons. And more recently an article appeared in the Sunday Times newspaper titled: ‘It is time to talk about our moral code’ (February 21, 2010). This will also be addressed in this letter.

Mr President, it appears from the press and from many other well documented articles that fraud, crime and corruption are leprous illnesses that permeates the ruling party and government in general. What is saddening is that the citizens of South Africa go largely unprotected by the corrupt and insufficient governance that makes up the disorder of the day and they are the majority who are victims of the separatist elite’s non-performance and ever escalating sins of crime, fraud, greed, lawlessness and other evils that are polluting our society.

Mr President, it is time for the masses to hear the Truth and that will also include you, sir, and every civil servant of this nation.

While your party members want to protect your private life from the scrutiny of the public, what their short-sightedness and lack of understanding fails to comprehend is that when you chose to be a parliamentarian you became public domain. Mr President, you are accountable to those citizens who voted you into office and you are also accountable to those citizens who chose not to give you their democratic vote. You, sir, are therefore to rule impartially for all the peoples of South Africa and not only for the interests of your ANC comrades.

Mr President, recently stories of your ‘private sex life’ made public headlines, and you have acknowledged the facts that have become known. What is of great concern is the lack of morals that you are showing to a wide audience which includes our young generation — and also the international community who have also questioned your moral ethics. It is a fact that your rule is immoral and ungodly.

Mr President, you have acted immorally and without regard for the message that you are communicating to our children and as a public figure you should be the one who is to show respect of persons, morality and maturity in leading our nation. Your actions are in violation against Almighty God’s commands — and even if you or any other person does not want to believe in the One True God, you are still accountable to Him by your behaviour.

Mr President, there has been campaigns that have been instigated by government where parliamentarians have encouraged persons to ‘be-wise-and-condomise’ and then tell the people to abstain from sex to prevent HIV/AIDS — what is the true message you are sending out? Not only have you not heeded these ‘suggestions’ you are also making South Africa a nation of fornicators (those who have sex outside the bounds of marriage). Mr President, by your actions you are a fornicator. This can set a dangerous trend where: If the president does it why should those following him not do like wise?

The Word of God (The Holy Bible) is clear when it says:

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.

From the Scripture references you will note that they are all in the singular — a man, his father, his mother, his wife, they [man and wife] shall become one flesh. From this you can see one man and one wife makes one marriage and you become one flesh. Mr President, to say your having many wives is your custom goes against what God says and it is a flagrant sin against Him as you are defying the Almighty’s rule of marriage. Mr President, The Bible says that man has invalidated the Word of God for the sake of your traditions (Matthew 15:6; Mark 7:8). By your traditions you make the Word of God of no effect.

By taking more than one wife, Mr President, you are committing adultery and thereby you are breaking the Seventh Commandment: You shall not commit adultery. Sir, you are also making your ‘wives’ adulteresses and by their willingness to enter into polygamous marriages, they, too, are committing adultery. Polygamy and being a polygamist are illegal acts. Mr President, playing your Zulu-custom card does not condone your sin and immoral acts. You might want to hold to your custom and ‘even expect others to tolerate and respect it’, but it is sin before an infinitely Holy and Righteous God. 1 John 3:4 reads –

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Jesus also said –

John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Mr President, it is at this very time that you, and every other person reading this letter, should consider how you will stand before Almighty God on the Day of Judgment, for there is a day that is approaching –

Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (my emphasis)

Each and every person will have to give an accounting of themselves on this Great and Fearful Day. People do not know when they will die — death comes upon people very suddenly and often by surprise and God’s Word warns you –

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

how will you kneel before God? At this point you should examine your lifestyle against God’s Holy Standard, The Ten Commandments, and see where you are headed — Heaven? Or Hell?

How many lies have you told in your lifetime? If you have told a lie you are a liar in the sight of God. You don’t need to tell ten lies then a bell goes off or even ascribe a colour to your lie — a lie is a lie in God’s Wisdom. Have you ever stolen anything? This includes fraud, if you have you are a thief in the sight of God. We have already dealt with the committing of adultery, but listen what Jesus said –

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.

We have already dealt with this crime against God and He sees even the intentions of peoples’ hearts and their minds. This also includes the debauched acts of homosexual sex and marriages. South Africa became the fifth country in the world, and the first in Africa, to allow legal marriages between same-sex couples. This law which was promulgated by the ANC is a heinous stench before the LORD –

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Have you ever committed murder? God’s Word says that if you are angry and hate anyone you have committed murder in the heart. Jesus said –

Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

Mr President, murder also includes abortion which your ANC party, under the ex-president Mr Mandela, promulgated the abortion law on February 1, 1997 and since then over 900,000 South African babies have been brutally murdered officially, legally and with tax payers’ money.

Have you ever blasphemed God? Or made reference to Him or His Son Jesus by not showing Him the rightful reverence He deserves? It is evident from an article that appeared in Africa News that you have openly blasphemed God by making reference that God agrees with the ANC’s policies, quote:

He said church leaders must persuade believers to vote for the ANC. “When priests pray for poverty to end and for development, then it means God agrees with the ANC because the ANC stands for those things,” Zuma said.

“When you preach in your churches, just explain to the congregation – in a paragraph – about the ANC. People who love God must not play with their votes, they must vote for the ANC,” said Zuma.

He added: “We in the ANC know God. When the ANC was born, it was baptized. We have respect, we are beautiful, and we conduct ourselves in a good way.”

Mr President, it is clear that you have mocked Almighty God by making fun and jokes about Him and His children. If you, or the ANC, know God you will keep His commandments –

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

God says He will hold everyone guilty for using His Name in vain. [“ANC to rule till Jesus comes” – Jacob Zuma]

Mr President, on the Day of Judgment when the Supreme Judge of the Universe, Almighty God holds Court; and He judges you according to His infinitely Holy Standard and Righteousness and finds that you, and all sinners, have transgressed His Law and you are found to be a liar, a thief, an adulterer and a fornicator, a murderer and a blasphemer, to mention a few charges, will you be innocent or guilty? The Bible says that all who sin against God will be guilty and not enter into the Kingdom of God.

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 Word of God is clear and concise for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). If God gives you the justice you rightfully deserve, you will be found guilty and God will send you to Hell for eternity — it is His place that He has set aside for eternal damnation for the lawless to be punished by His Divine Wrath.

Knowing that you will be condemned into Hell for all eternity should be horrifying you at this point. If you are not trembling and fearful then you have not seen your sin as being exceedingly sinful before an infinitely, Holy, Righteous, Good, Sovereign and Just God.

There will be no entering into appeals against His judgment. There will be no Constitutional Court or Court of Appeal. God’s JUDGMENT is final and binding for eternity. Receiving a guilty verdict means receiving Hell for eternity. Don’t make light of Hell; it’s a very real place of torment. Jesus spoke more about Hell than about Heaven. Heading for damnation in the fiery pit of Hell should concern you. It should make you extremely fearful. This is really bad news.

However, there is Good News and this is the only way man can escape Hell’s eternal torment. About 2000 years ago God sent His Son Jesus Christ to this world on a mission. What took place was God choosing to reveal Himself in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, the Anointed One. The Deity of Christ is revealed in The Holy Scriptures, God’s Word — The Bible –

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 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of 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.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Jesus, the God-man was conceived by the Holy Spirit and He was born to a virgin named Mary –

Luke 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Luke 1:29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
Luke 1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
Luke 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
Luke 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Luke 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. (Notethe angel sent by God to His maidservant Mary was the angel Gabriel)

He came into the world as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Jesus entered into His earthly ministry and this is an account by the apostle Peter –

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.

Act 11:17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?
Act 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

Mr President, with reference to your Sunday Times interview, I quote:

“He [Zuma] appeared shocked and surprised by the outrage that followed the scandal, telling the Sunday Times: “There are Muslims, Christians, Jews, Pedis and so on … How do we live together with an understanding that we understand each other?

“Values may not exactly be the same, but how do we bring harmony to this?”

Mr President, the problem is not about ‘understanding each other’, because it is not about us and our diverse religions, values and communities. The answer is: It is ALL ABOUT GOD (YHVH) AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!! It doesn’t matter what you believe in. What matters is what you believe in is it true? If the God of Creation is not centre in everyone’s lives their evil and wicked ways will persist. The God of the Holy Bible has given us the First Commandment that He is to be the Only God and we all are to worship Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and the Second Commandment reads that we are to have no idols (gods) before Him. If man is trying to resolve anything and he has broken the first two commandments then anything else man tries to accomplish will come to naught. Worshiping other gods (including addressing songomas and praying to ancestors) is idolatry and eternal punishment in Hell awaits all idolaters. There is a real spiritual war being waged between the Kingdom of Light (God) and the kingdom of darkness (satan). Satan uses religion to keep people in the darkness blinded to the Truth — he does not want to go to Hell only with his demons.

Man relies on religion to try appease God for their evil and wicked lives. God says in His Word, speaking through His prophet Isaiah –

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

The prophet Isaiah employed our righteous deeds by using the imagery of menstrual cloths used during a woman’s period to picture uncleanness (cf. Leviticus 15:19-24). Man tries to get right with God by his works, but they are a stench before Almighty God. So it is through God’s mercy by Him granting us grace (unmerited favour) that we can be saved. For we are justified by grace alone, through faith alone by trusting in Jesus Christ alone that a man can have his sins forgiven and be reconciled back to God.

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Ephesians 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Jesus said –

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus said He is the Way and so any other way man tries to get saved by is a false way. Jesus said He is the Truth — therefore any other ‘truth’ is a lie, because there can only be one Truth. And Jesus said He is the Life — you cannot receive life through any other.

2 Chronicles 7:11 Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king’s house: and all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
2 Chronicles 7:12 And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
2 Chronicles 7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
2 Chronicles 7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
2 Chronicles 7:17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
2 Chronicles 7:18 Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
2 Chronicles 7:19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
2 Chronicles 7:20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
2 Chronicles 7:21 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house?
2 Chronicles 7:22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

A Plea to the Unsaved

There are some of you standing in these aisles and sitting in these pews, who I feel in my soul will never have another invitation, and if this be rejected today, I feel a solemn motion in my soul — I think it is of the Holy Ghost — that you will never hear another faithful sermon, but you shall go down to Hell impenitent, unsaved, except you trust in Jesus now. I speak not as a man, but I speak as God’s ambassador to your souls, and I command you, in God’s name, trust Jesus, trust now. At your peril reject the voice that speaks from Heaven, for “he that believeth not shall be damned.” How shall you escape if you neglect so great salvation. When it comes right home to you, when it thrusts itself in your way, oh, if you will neglect it how can you escape? With tears I would invite you, and, if I could, would compel you to come in. Why will you not? Oh souls, if you will be damned, if you make up your mind that no mercy shall ever woo you, and no warnings shall ever move you, then, sirs, what chains of vengeance must you feel that slight these bonds of love. You have deserved the deepest Hell, for you slight the joys above. God save you. He will save you, if you trust in Jesus. God help you to trust Him even now for Jesus’ sake. Amen. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

And with my Brother in Christ who has gone to our Lord Jesus in glory, I speak not as a man, but I speak as God’s ambassador to your souls –

2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

John 3:36 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.

Mr President, as an ambassador of God, I call you and the citizens of South Africa to REPENT (turn from and forsake) of your evil and wicked sin and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is your only hope.

An unworthy sinner, saved by grace
