One of the most extraordinary mysteries, conspiracies and disinformation campaigns has finally been exposed, implicating numerous prominent heads of state in the atrocities and subsequent cover up scandals. A complex edifice of deception has been thoroughly dismantled by patient and persistent perseverance and pressure.
41 YEARS AGO – CONVERSION to CHRIST and CALL to MISSIONS.

3 April 1977, I was converted to Christ. It happened at the Ster Kinekor cinema in Pinelands. My family had moved from Rhodesia to Cape Town. We were living in Pinelands, just a few kilometres from where I had been born. It was Sunday evening, 3rd April 1977, when I walked over to the local cinema, little realising, how dramatically that would change my life forever.

As we are reminded again of the sufferings of Christ on the Cross, we need to consider the question: Who is responsible for the sufferings of Christ? As we read the Gospel narratives, or as we see the crucifixion of our Saviour depicted by The Passion of the Christ film, we have to ask the question: Who killed Jesus?

Farm Confiscations without Compensation
The National Assembly of the South African Parliament sent shock waves around the country by setting in motion a process to change the Constitution so as to allow expropriation of land without compensation. The threat to private ownership of property and the clearly stated intention to remove Constitutional safeguards and protections for private ownership of property has staggered observers. Most land in South Africa is controlled by the ANC government and over 4,000 farms already acquired from white farmers, remain un-allocated.
The Crisis that Confronts Us
The cost of unstable, inefficient, expensive and unreliable energy in South Africa is a staggering R89 billion per month in lost production, revenue and wastage. Central government in South Africa is corrupt, complicated, frustrating and unnecessarily time-wasting. Racist Black Economic Empowerment and Affirmative Action policies, with racial quotas not only in business, but also in sports, has led millions to leave this country, including over one million skilled workers. Every skilled labourer on average provides employment for 10 unskilled labourers.
Putting God First.
“…that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18
A group of Theological students were given an assignment to rearrange the Ten Commandments in order of priority. There was general consensus that the most important commandment should be: “You shall not murder.” They also agreed that the second most important would be: “You shall not steal.” The third most important commandment was: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.”
However, there was a division as to which was the least important commandment. Half of the students felt that the least important commandment was: “You shall not commit adultery.” The other half selected “You shall have no other gods before Me” as the least significant. After some further discussion the class agreed to put the “You shall have no other gods before Me” as the least important of the Ten Commandments.
That is an interesting commentary on the perspective of those theological students. When the Lord Jesus Christ was asked which is the greatest Commandment in the Law, He replied: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and great Commandment.” Matthew 22:37-38

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
Tragedy at Newlands Dam

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”
2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Revolutionary Upheavals in Zimbabwe
The most dramatic event of the last month was the massive nationwide protest against Marxist tyrant Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. This culminated in the military action which compelled the oldest and longest running dictator still in power in the world, Robert Mugabe, to finally give in to decades of protest and pressure to give up his despotic misrule. Parliament was the scene of unprecedented jubilation as the house erupted in cheers, singing, dancing, clapping and celebrations with members of parliament, leaping up, jumping on tables and flinging their arms high about their heads, shouting with joy and exuberance. The electric atmosphere throughout the country saw many hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets to cheer, shout, dance and sing at the news.
A Tale of Two Conferences
The Father of modern Missions, William Carey, was a man ahead of his time. In 1810, he proposed a World Missions Conference and he suggested Cape Town as the ideal venue! It was 100 years later, in 1910, that the first World Missions Conference was held, in Edinburgh. Two hundred years after William Carey had proposed it, Cape Town hosted the Third Lausanne Conference on World Evangelism, October 2010.
