I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. Isaiah 42:6-7
There is a definite way that the Lord Jesus deals with unbelievers to save them, equip them for service and prepare them for eternal life in heaven. The willingness and full co-operation of each one of us, according to fixed biblical guidelines, is necessary if we wish to avert the tragedy of a false repentance. We can all share in the wonderful experience to be called by the Lord out of the darkness of sin into His marvellous light. I invite you to explore with me the unsearchable riches of the Lord’s love and saving grace, and to accept it by faith. Continue reading “From Darkness to the Light”
There are now two distinct camps in Adventism. The split became apparent in the late 1970’s when “pastors” of many years’ standing began to question their prophetess, Ellen G. White. Continue reading “The Seventh Day Adventist”
What did William Branham “really” teach and believe! “Were identified with him in Act 2. We’re identified with them, with the same baptism, same thing. All he was then, and all he is, all he was, and all he is, we are.
Vir jare het ek agter die begeerlikheid van die vlees, die begeerlikheid van die oë, die grootheid van die lewe aangeloop, die wêreld. Maar diep binne in my was dit altyd leeg en eensaam. Altyd op soek na iets. Terwyl ek nog op die wêreld rond gedans en gespeel het. My verlustig met die dinge van die wêreld, was daar eendag, onverwags, ‘n sagte klop aan my hart se deur. Ek het geloer om te sien wie geklop het. Wat ek gesien het, het alles binne in my, in beroering gebring, en ek was dadelik smoorverlief . Continue reading “EK IS DRINGEND OPSOEK NA MY BEMINDE!”
AD 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth in 1809 and the 150th anniversary of the unveiling of his theory of evolution by the publication of his book,The Origin of Species, in 1859. Belief in evolution as though it were fact proven beyond doubt is surely the greatest single cause of the disastrous decline in belief in God, the Bible and the Christian faith during the 19th – 21st century. Rom 1:25 refers to those “who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped the creature more than the Creator.” The evolution theory has proved a formidable weapon in Satan’s hands, which should be of concern to all true Christians who are called upon to “fight the good fight of faith” (1Tim 6:12).

What does the Bible really teach about evolution? From Genesis and on, the Biblical record is always clear and exact — God created Adam and Eve and from them mankind began. Mankind did NOT evolve from a monkey, nor were we put here by aliens from another planet or anything else. God created Adam from the dust of the earth (Gen 2:7) and Eve was created from Adam’s rib (Gen 2:21,22). The Lord Jesus confirmed their creation (Mar 10:6). Because Jesus is the ultimate authority, being God in the flesh, he verified man’s creation! That should settle it forever. Man did NOT evolve and evolution is a lie, just like eternal security.

There is an intensifying controversy in the church all over the world regarding the age of the earth. For the first 18 centuries of church history,the almost universal belief of Christians was that God created the world in six literal days, roughly 4,000 years before Christ, and destroyed the world with a global Flood at the time of Noah. Continue reading “Seven Reasons Why We Should Not Accept Millions of Years”
A 6,000-year-old earth? When you look up the Bible references, the math’s not that hard! We’ve all heard the horror stories. Teachers in government schools force students through strange, torturous machinations to do simple math. For example, many of us used to be able to add 121 + 13 in 1.72 seconds. The Common Core method takes 7 steps and 3 minutes and 18 seconds.
South Africa, since its beginning as the small Cape of Good Hope Dutch colony in 1652, has been strongly under the influence of Calvinistic (Reformed) churches planted here by colonists from the Netherlands. Continue reading “Calvinism Refuted from the Bible”
We are living in a time when increased pressure is exerted upon all churches to fundamentally change their doctrines. The Bible is considered less dogmatic since modern humanity is not prepared to restrict its freedom by a narrow and literal interpretation of Scripture. A biblical concept of God, an evangelical doctrine of salvation and premillennial teachings on end-time events are among the major casualties in the new reformation which is currently under way.
Christianity experiences unprecedented attacks on its foundational truths. These attacks are motivated and coordinated by evil forces that are intent on deceiving all people as a prelude to physically establishing Satan’s kingdom on earth. Their main obstacle is the biblical account of God’s kingdom and, particularly, the deity, atoning death, resurrection and second coming of Jesus Christ. The present attacks are aimed at discrediting the canonical books of the Bible, and thereby also the God and Saviour of the Bible, while promoting and praising wicked people such as Esau, the Sodomites, and the traitor, Judas Iscariot.
The following excerpts from articles clearly reveal the dangers of deception that are contained in Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code:
Attacks on the Person of Jesus Christ In his article
A Study of the Book The Da Vinci Code, Dr. Errol Wagner says, among others:“The past few decades has seen the rise of attacks on Christianity in general and on the person of Jesus Christ in particular. These attacks have come from without and within the church. Now we have the book The Da Vinci Code, where questions are raised concerning the deity of Christ and the trustworthiness of the Gospels.
The fifteen Apocryphal books which the Roman Catholics have included in their Bibles, come from a collection of about eighteen or more books written during the Inter-testamental Period.This period of four hundred years began with God giving the last book of the Old Testament which was Malachi.
An evil is in the professed camp of the Lord, so gross in its impudence, that the most shortsighted can hardly fail to notice it during the past few years. It has developed at an abnormal rate, even for evil. Continue reading “Feeding Sheep or Amusing Goats?”
There are various theories on the existence of black Jewish tribes in Africa. Such people are erroneously described as descendants from the so-called “ten lost tribes of Israel”. Some of them now claim Israeli (or Jewish) identity, and this claim has already given rise to a significant migration from Africa to Israel. Continue reading “Lost Israeli Tribes in Africa?”
Holiness is not just a Biblical terminology, but a commanded way of life, for all Born Again Believers.Holiness is not optional, God commands us to live Holy. 1Pet 1:15 “but as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation” Continue reading “Bible Study on Holiness”
