“… ‘We have made a covenant with death and with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves’.”
Agitprop Active Measures at Work
Those of us who attended the parliamentary hearings regarding the African National Congress (ANC) government’s plans to confiscate farms, were given a classic example of how communist agitprop (agitation-propaganda) active measures works.
In Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, parliament was the scene of unprecedented jubilation as the Speaker of the House read Robert Mugabe’s resignation letter. The House erupted in cheers, singing, dancing, clapping and celebrations – with Members of the Parliament leaping up, jumping on their chairs and tables, flinging their arms high above their heads, shouting with joy and exuberance.
Christian Civilisation is Under Attack
As we celebrate 500 years of the Reformation and consider laying solid foundations for the next 500 years, it is painfully evident that Christian civilisation is under attack from all sides: Socialism and social engineering, gender politics and race politics, abortion and euthenasia, Islamic Jihad and the Pink Inquisition, liberalism, Judaizers, feminism, antinomianism, egalitarianism and a host of other isms, deception in the media, degeneracy in arts and entertainment, unBiblical practices and beliefs in the churches and so much more confront us and demand a bold and Biblical response.
A World War of Worldviews
There is a battle for the family, a battle for the mind and a war against the children. There clearly is a concerted war against free speech, a battle over history and ultimately a war against God Himself. Far more than the survival of our nations is at stake. We are witnessing concerted attempts to erode and destroy the very foundations of Christian civilisation itself. This is a fight for life and for Faith, for freedom and for our future.
Reaching Muslims for Christ
By God's grace, Pastors travelled from far and wide to participate in the Reaching Muslims for Christ Seminar in the Transvaal. Petra organised and hosted this seminar and 7 of their Pastors and Evangelists from Zimbabwe and 9 from Zambia travelled in to participate in this Muslim Evangelism Programme. The question and answer times were vibrant and there was tremendous interest in the book table. Large quantities of literature were distributed and many new contacts made amongst the over one hundred participants.
Cape of Storms
Cape Town is the only city in the world that sits astride two oceans. With the warm Indian Ocean and the Cold Atlantic meeting at Cape Point, our part of the world has long been known as the Cape of Storms. That was not particularly good for tourism so it was renamed the Cape of Good Hope. On 6th June, we were warned that a severe storm with anticipated wind speeds of up to 120km/hr would hit later that night. For the first time in my lifetime, all schools in the Cape Peninsula were ordered closed the next day, Wednesday 7 June, in anticipation of the severe storm.

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His Name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing Psalms to Him; talk of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy Name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore! Remember His marvellous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,” 1 Chronicles 16:8-12
Working for Reformation Today
This was my fourth Mission in four months. We have been promoting 2017 as Reformation 500 for many years, actually, since my Mission to Europe in 2005, so it is understandable that we have received many invitations to conduct Reformation 500 conferences in so many countries.
A Trail of Betrayal
During the 4 years of the presidency of Jimmy Carter, 13 countries fell to communism. In most cases, they did not just fall to communism, but were actually betrayed into the hands of communist revolutionaries. It was a major foreign policy goal of Jimmy Carter's presidency to force the people of Rhodesia to hand over to Robert Mugabe's ZANU terrorists. Americans removed Jimmy Carter from the presidency over 36 years ago. However, the longsuffering people of Zimbabwe are still stuck with Carter's legacy in the form of Robert Mugabe's murderous Marxist dictatorship.
Lord Alton, an advocate of the effort, wrote: "In November, Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey are to be floodlit in red to commemorate the persecuted. If every parish in the country did the same it might at last wake up our political classes to the scale of the suffering."
Starting at 11pm on Saturday, 28 February 2015, wildfires broke out and spread across the Cape Peninsula. In just the first week of March, over 6,000 hectares of nature reserve and private farms were burned. In that week alone, 2,000 firefighters and volunteers were mobilised, 2 million litres of water was dropped on the fire in 2,000 air drops by 26 aircraft, including 11 helicopters, 6 fixed wing aircraft and 9 spotter planes, to deal with 11 separate fires. 198 hours of flying time was dedicated to water-bombing the wild fires. The cost of the firefighting during that first week of March was estimated to exceed six Million Rand.
