Recent public remarks by EFF leader Julius Malema in which he said he and his supporters “are Jesus ourselves” have sparked warning calls for him to repent urgently and publicly.
In a statement released on Friday telling Malema to apologise for his remarks the ACDP cautions him that other leaders who have claimed divinity “paid dearly” for their blasphemy.
And in a statement drafted yesterday and released today by Advocate / Evangelist Molly Malete on behalf of the Body of Christ , Malema is warned, for his own benefit, “to repent with immediate effect before Monday, 20th March 2023”.
In recent days, ahead of the EFF’s planned attempt to shut down the country on Monday, Malema has spoken defiantly against anybody — including the courts and security forces — who stands in the way of his protest agenda.
But by mocking God and provoking His anger Malema has gone too far, say the Christian watchmen whose statements are published in full below:
Message to Julius Malema
Date: 18 March 2023
We, on behalf of the Body of Christ/the Church in SA, do not take lightly all the utterances you have made about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Be warned, therefore, that the Lord’s anger is aroused against you. The Lord gave us this word to tell you: Ezekiel 3: 16-22….that He has appointed people in the Body of Christ to defend His name and His Kingdom and to warn you of your wickedness, to call you to repent and to instruct you to ask for forgiveness from God Almighty against blaspheming the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and especially the CROSS. This is very very urgent. You need to act now and do that openly and through Public Media platform in the same way as you sent out the blasphemous utterances.
This message is sent to you as a warning, so that when the anger of the Lord is carried out against you, you would not say that you were not warned……. We are warning you so that the Lord would not require your blood at our hands for keeping quiet. You are being warned to repent, therefore, immediately. We took the guts and pain to release this statement because, doing so is more to our benefit. If you heed the call it is going to be to your benefit as well. But if you don’t, then our hands are clean.
Take heed, therefore, there is no more time. It is urgent. Repent and withdraw your blasphemous utterances before God and His people
May the good Lord grant you the grace to repent with immediate effect before Monday, 20th March 2023. If you have an ear to hear, hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
From Adv/Evangelist Molly Malete on behalf of the body of Christ in Azania/South Africa
ACDP tells Malema to apologise for blasphemous statements
The ACDP wishes to state emphatically, that the recent statement made by the leader of the red berets, Julius Malema, cannot go unchallenged. Addressing a crowd of supporters, he is heard saying, “We are not religious. We can’t wait for Jesus to come, we are Jesus ourselves.”
The ACDP would instruct Mr. Malema to understand that not being religious, is no excuse for being blasphemous. He and his followers are not, and will never be Jesus, our Messiah. To equate yourself with Christ Jesus, is to declare that you are Devine and this is where the line must be drawn. Many a leader succumbed to the lie, that they are Devine and paid dearly for this. The Bible records one such leader, Herod. The people said of Herod, “It isn’t a man speaking but a god”, and at once the angel of the Lord struck Herod down, because he did not give honor to God. He was eaten by worms and died. Acts 12:22-23
The ACDP notes that this is not the first time Mr. Malema has courted controversy, by drawing in the Church. He is also known to have said, “We don’t need a silly cross to save our people.” Additionally, the EFF issued a statement before Easter in 2018, saying “the Palestinians are the crucified, hanging body of Jesus today.”
The ACDP wishes to caution Mr. Malema, in that our God is not to be mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he reap. The meekness of the church must never be mistaken for weakness. Within the ACDP, our resolve to contend for the faith, is unwavering and resolute. Like the early leaders of the Church, we will not be bowed, neither shall we step back from any attack on the Church.
The ACDP calls on Mr. Malema to apologise for his blasphemous statements. We also call in the body of Christ to take note of these leaders who blaspheme and dishonour God, but come elections, seek your pulpit to address God’s children. This kind of hypocrisy must not be tolerated or rewarded.
