Abortion is very high on God’s agenda for the coming election, says Bloemfontein businessman and prayer ministry leader, Andre Venter.
Explaining the background to a pre-election prophetic word he sent to Gateway News this week, he said the Holy Spirit released the message to Team House of Bread Prayer Warriors on the Wall during one of their recent morning prayer times for the nation.
He said the group regularly prays in the Bridal Chamber, a prayer room in the House of Bread, a non-profit restaurant/coffee shop/meeting centre that has become hub of prayer, worship and ministry in Bloemfontein.
The release of the prophetic word, which begins by stating that the May election is not about race or colour but about “light against darkness (1 John 1: 5-9)”, also prompted another Bloemfontein resident, veteran pastor Bryan Innes, to send us a word that he says he received out of the blue during a quiet time — about the pending election being a struggle between light and darkness.
The House of Bread prayer warriors’ word carries a warning to born-again believers against voting for a political party that is pro-abortion.
Venter urges Christians to read and meditate on the Bible verses accompanying the word that is published in full below:
Born again believes in South Africa;
The vote you are going to cast is not about race or colour, but light against darkness. (1 John 1:5-9)
Abortion and the coming elections:
The spirit of abortion is the same as the spirit of Molech. (Leviticus 18:21, 20:3-7)
This is a spirit of murder.
To whom do we belong?
The Lord has made us, and not we ourselves.
Life is sacred!
He is the Creator of the life yet to be born.
Life and death is not in our hands.
We are not permitted to take life before it is born.
“If you are going to vote for any political party that is pro-abortion, then you are guilty of sin as you are agreeing to the murder of the life yet to be born, and Satan the accuser of the saints gets the legal right to take your vote to the courtroom of Heaven. The Word in Revelation 12:11 and Daniel 7:9-10 then stands to testify against your action of agreeing to murdering the life before its birth.
This then brings you to a place where your hands becomes bloody in terms of the Scripture.” (Isaiah 1:15, 59:3)
Blood has voice.
On the Day of Judgement all the believers have to stand before the Judgement Seat of Christ, and this can cost you Eternal Rewards.
(2 Corinthians 5:10, Ecclesiates 12:14)
Therefore, I would like to encourage you to read, study and meditate on the Scriptures and be led by the Holy Spirit through prayer in Jesus Name.

Commenting on the election message that he believes the Holy Spirit gave to him during a quiet time a few weeks ago, Innes says he did not know what to do with it, so just waited at first.
But after becoming aware of two similar words — the word above and a word from Vuyokazi Matu published in Gateway News last week (‘The Spirit-led vote from the Church will cleanse the nation from bloodguilt’) — he decided to send his word to Gateway News.
“It is essential for Christians to educate themselves as to what party to vote for. The track record of each party that was represented in parliament from the election of 2014 should be checked out
“I believe that leaders of every denomination and congregation should give teaching to their members on the value of their vote and what God expects of them,” Innes says.
See his word below:
“ This coming election is different from previous elections for Christians in South Africa. It is a spiritual battle between LIGHT and DARKNESS.
Your vote, every single one, is critical for the direction of this Nations Future. This election is a turning point. Make sure that you MAKE YOUR CROSS next to the party that upholds MY VALUES and MY PRINCIPLES. I, the LORD will JUDGE every Christian according to which party that person votes for. There is no middle ground. So choose either to vote FOR ME OR AGAINST ME.”
