Friends, Tuesday (26 May 2018) marked the end of 70 years since apartheid was instituted in South Africa on May 26 1948. It is the end of a generation and an era.
Yet our country is grappling with renewed racial tensions and feelings of injustice (on all sides). This has the potential to destroy us if we allow the past to rule our future. Today we have entered into a new dispensation in our history if we apply Biblical insight.
We have a choice before us: life or death. The more we get divided and polarised over issues, the closer we move to death. The enemy’s age-old tactic is ‘divide and rule’ to kill, steal and destroy. If we don’t see through what’s going on we will gradually succumb to hatred.
The time for all of us to stand together and love each other has never been greater. Choose today to become an instrument of mass restoration.
On this day, 27 May 2018, step into a NEW DAY and a new future for South Africa. The Lord says, “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a new way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” — Isaiah 43:19.
Rise above the noise and BE Good News to our beloved country ! More than ever our nation needs healing. BE that balm of healing in the Lord’s hands. This is step one, don’t skip it. Then what we grapple with will be naturally solved.
South Africa: “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain” — Psalm 127:1 . Start with the Cornerstone. BE the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Deep inside, this is what our nation is crying out for. Let us answer this cry with Good News.
