Today Reminder (Before you) – 23 July 2018


A reminder for today
I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. (Isaiah 45:2-3)

How was your weekend, my friend? We did not do much, yet the weekend disappeared so quickly. I went for an interview on Friday and it went well I think. So, we will see if God wants me to move or if He’s got a different path in mind. This morning there is protests again and, in the protest, they tore up all the people’s bus tickets that now leaves these poor people with no transport for this month. It is unbelievable what is going on in this country at the moment. The fraud, corruption, lies, destruction, murders and crime are just unbelievable. Yet our amazing government deems land reform as the priority and this will fix South-Africa. I am speechless. 

I have reached the point of no return and I have thought about leaving before, but now I am certain that we need to get out of here. My verse for today comes out of one of my favourite books. The Lord says here that He will go out before us and make our crooked places straight again. He will break the gates of brass and He will separate the bars of iron. He will give us the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches in secret places. 

I am reminded that in all our challenges and difficulties we will see victory. Jesus said that He has already overcome the world. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Jesus said that in Him we will have peace but, in the world, we will see tribulation. He then says that we must be of good cheer (be happy) because He has overcome the world. I cannot tell you how tired we are of all the nonsense in this country. Off all the double standards and hatred that is openly propagated. I am so tired to be judged for something I did not do or have anything to do with. I am so tired of all the lies and corruption and ignorance. 

What does Jesus say. He says be of good cheer. Be happy in your troubles and tribulations because He has already defeated this world. He has gone before us and He has made the crooked path straight and He already defeated the brass gates and broke the bars of iron. Be of good cheer, because He will come again and He will deal with the darkness. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus. 

Cheers

Today Reminder (Clean heart) – 19 July 2018


A reminder for today
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. (Psalm 51:9-13)

I should not complain. I am against injustice and I am against lies that the media and the ANC and the enemy continues to spread but I am extremely grateful for what the Lord is doing. People are uniting against the lies and the wrongs, but we still have a long way to go. Some days it just feels like we are fighting a lost battle and we have no control over what is coming. Fact is the end is near and the day of our Lord’s return is coming closer and closer. So, we should unite against the enemy, but we must not miss the task at hand. We should continue to spread the word of God and continue to tell people about Jesus and the life we have in Him.

Therefore, I pray this psalm today. Lord, please hide your face from my sins and block out my iniquities. Please create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit and a right manner so that the world will not affect me, and the lies will not alter my course. Point and guide me in the right direction and steer me clear of evil and pain and lust and desire. Make me content and fill my life with joy. Joy that is you and you alone and let me not be influenced by this world but let your Word be my influencing guide. Restore in me the joy of your salvation and renew my strength while you uphold me with your free spirit. Then guide me so that I can teach the lost and the hurt and sinners so that they will convert and return to you. Help me to be your disciple and your prophet so that I will live a life that mirrors you and transcends your love.  In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus. 

Cheers

Today Reminder (Media) – 18 July 2018


A reminder for today
He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. (John 9:25)

South Africa is celebrating Nelson Mandela who was made a hero by the media as they white washed the world in forgetting that he was nothing other than a terrorist and a murderer. He stepped into the leadership role and since then the country went in a downward spiral that was just multiplied by the communists that replaced him. The current situation here in our country is being swept under the carpet as the media does not report on what is actually happening here. They do not tell you about the murders, the crime rate and the junk status that we find ourselves in while our new leader is taking steps to take land from us without compensation while they sabotage our electricity supply leaving us in darkness. Do not let the media fool you.

I am taking today’s verse and I am taking it out of context. You see Jesus healed this blind man and when he was confronted by the leaders he said that all he knows is that he was blind and now he can see. You see the world wants you to be blinded by what is actually happening. The enemy is at work and as long as you do not see what is going on you will not be bothered to pray about it. This is what satan wants. He wants us to be blinded and live ignorant lives of what happens around us while he happily destroys Christians all over the world and I want to add brutal murder. 

Here in South Africa they don’t just kill the Christians, they torture them for hours. This includes woman and children in horrific ways that I do not even want to tell you about because it is so bad. Yet, it gets swept away and you do not hear about it except through the people that is actually affected by it. It is silenced so that we will not unite and pray about it and that the international community remains unaware about it. But God is working in amazing ways to open the eyes of the world to the lies in such a way that Australia and the Netherlands has already reacted. But we must still unite in prayer and pray for Christians all over the world and in South Africa so that God will rescue them and save them from this horrible oppression. 

So, I do not celebrate Mandela. I celebrate Jesus Christ and He is coming. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
