On the 22nd of April, almost 1.4 million South African Christians gathered on a farm in Bloemfontein. Their purpose was to pray about the white genocide taking place in their country. All races were represented. But our Lord had different plans for them.
The brother in Christ who has been keeping me apprised of the planning of this event, has now written to me about the gathering – and what God did there.
Here is his email to me:
Happy belated birthday for the 22nd.
God bless you for all the trouble you went to, to spread the word to stand with the church in South Africa on April 22.
The meeting was AWESOME, AWESOME, and once again AWESOME. One could tangibly feel the presence of the Holy Spirit (and not in the prosperity gospel way).
The number of people was staggering to say the least. The estimation is in the region of 1.2 to 1.4 million South Africans of all races, praise God. The weather was a blessed 26 degrees celcius with a cool wind blowing (remember we were on a farm)
I think (myself included) that most people went to the meeting with the expectation of hearing Angus preach out against the corrupt government and ask God to bring down fire on them ( or something of that sort). He did pray for the government asking God to replace it with a God fearing Government amongst other things, BUT, the main theme was personal sins in the lives of christians.
He used the part in the old testament “If My people who are called by My name, humble themselves and part from their wicked ways, then I will heal…
This was such a surprise, and such a humbling moment, but such a blessing from God. Over 1 million christians went down on their knees to repent and confess their sins before a holy God. Many people were in tears during this time. Many people made a confession for Jesus too.
I think most of us went with the idea of telling God what we expected from Him, never expecting to hear what He expects from us first.
One of the most awesome things that I will never forget in my life, is when, each time, everyone shouted “Amen” in agreement with the things Angus preached about, or the sins that were rebuked in peoples lives, it literally sounded like thunder and lightning. the ground shook beneath our feet from that sound. (1.2 to 1.4 million people shouting at the same time)
I came away from the meeting with the realization that, yes, God is going to change our country, but the church (us christians) have to get our act together because change starts with us first. We serve a holy and awesome God Who demands holiness from us as well. We cannot call on God to help us while we carry on with our hidden sinfull lives but still expect God to act on our behalf.
To our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ all the glory. This event was put together in just 6 weeks, only God can do that.
I included some photos of the event. The one with the family, is my family, except for the lady on the far right, who is a friend. I’m the dad with the moustache. I’m sure you will get better photos on social media. The event was called “Its Time”
Geri, I’m very exited about what God is going to do.
I freely admit to the readers that I was filled with a sense of profound sadness – not for South Africa – but for Christians in America. Brethren, we missed it – Big time.
I love Franklin Graham. I respect and love him in the Lord. Along with speaking out against the corruption and sin in our government, Franklin Graham also spoke of the need for American Christians to repent of their sins in order for God to hear us from heaven and forgive our sins – and heal our land. The American church as a whole did not heed the encouragement to repent.
God kept Hillary out of the White House and gave us Donald Trump. This is not the point of this article. I believe that the church – because there was little or no repentance, has gone back to sleep.
I believe that America is under severe judgment by our Holy God. Are babies still being slaughtered in the killing mills? Yes, they are. Is gay marriage and transgenderism still be accepted as normal and taught to our children in schools? Sadly, yes it is.
Are Christians biting and devouring one another? Constantly.
Have the mainline church denominations continued to hate Israel and ordain gay clergy? YES.
God is Not Mocked
Brethren, God knows our hearts. Some may think that they are hiding from Him. but they are deluded. He is omniscient God. No one can hide from Him.
Some will say that I am writing doom and gloom. I don’t think so. I feel in my heart that evil is more rampant now, that when the Democrats were in office. People – this is not about political parties! This is about the body of Christ in America. This is about repentance and revival – turning from wicked ways and from apathy. Trusting in God – NOT in man.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wick ways then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2nd Chronicles 7:14).
Repent and turn to God with your whole heart. It may be too late for America, but we don’t know that.
Wouldn’t you love to be part of a great awakening of the church in America? Wouldn’t you love to see happen here – what happened on that farm in South Africa?
I would. And I pray that it’s not too late.
