It’s Time Pretoria set to be SA’s biggest prayer AND camping event

 

It’s Time Pretoria on October 27 is poised to be the biggest prayer gathering in South Africa’s history — and possibly also the biggest camping gathering.

Organisers, and Angus Buchan himself, are encouraging as many people as possible to help alleviate traffic congestion by making use of two large, camp sites that are being prepared adjacent to the Rhino Park airfield in Pretoria East where up to five million people are expected to pray together for the nation.

In a video message released today  Buchan encourages families to be part of a great camping experience reminiscent of the mass Mighty Men meetings once held on his farm. Speaking to men who were at those events he said: “Remember the camaraderie, the love and the presence of the Holy Spirit when we camped together, and we sat around the campfire and shared about the things of God.

“It’s going to happen again. Only on a much larger scale.”

WATCH THE VIDEO MESSAGE:

Booking for both free camping and free parking is available online — at https://itickets.co.za/events/406257 for camping, and at https://itickets.co.za/events/405354 for parking vouchers.

Camping areas will be made available two days before the prayer event — from 12pm on Thursday afternoon October 25, to Monday morning October 29.

Emergency and security services and toilets will be supplied at the campsites but campers will need to bring their own camping  and sleeping equipment, chairs (for campsite and for use at prayer event), showering facility (no showers available), extra toilet paper, own black bag for refuse, water and food, medical supplies, generator and lights.

More info on what to bring, do and not do at the campsites is available at the campsite booking link.

Non-campers can expect to walk some distance from the parking areas to the venue, with the furthest parking area situated 5km from the venue entrance. Bus parking and disabled parking will be closest to the venue. Information on the parking areas and parking routes, which people are asked to observe in order to relieve congestion, is available at the booking link.

The gates to the prayer venue will be open from 1am on Saturday October 27. The event will start from 9am, and the main event will be from 12pm to 2pm. Remember to bring chairs, Bibles, hats, sunscreen, food, water and refuse bags which are to be taken away with you after the event.

A huge number of volunteers, including individuals, businesses and churches are joining hands to assist in preparing for the historic prayer day. This week a group of 300 community leaders from Mamelodi met to plan mobilising people from Mamelodi to participate in a mass walk from the township to the prayer venue. If you are keen to volunteer in any way, here is a link where you can find out about needs and sign up to help: https://www.angusbuchan.co.za/its-time-partner

Latest developments will be posted on the website www.angusbuchan.co.za and on the Angus Buchan Facebook page.

    This is possibly the greatest thing that has ever happened in SA. I cannot be there but can only imagine what God is going to do for our country after this mass gathering of believers.

    IT’S TIME FOR CHRISTIANS TO STOP SINNING.
    The following is meant for the so-called Christian believers (NOT UNBELIEVERS) in South Africa, in the hope that we will all recognise that while we continue as sinning saints, no matter how big a gathering we attend, the wages of sin will always be DEATH. Here are some scriptures to ponder over.

    Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
    Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
    Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
    Mat 15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
    Mat 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
    Mat 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

    Mat 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
    Mat 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
    Mat 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
    Mat 6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    1Ti 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
    1Ti 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
    1Ti 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
    1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
    1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
    1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

    Isaiah 53 Good News Translation (GNT)
    53 The people reply,
    1 “Who would have believed what we now report?
    Who could have seen the Lord’s hand in this?
    2 It was the will of the Lord that his servant
    grow like a plant taking root in dry ground.
    He had no dignity or beauty
    to make us take notice of him.
    There was nothing attractive about him,
    nothing that would draw us to him.
    3 We despised him and rejected him;
    he endured suffering and pain.
    No one would even look at him—
    we ignored him as if he were nothing.
    4 “But he endured the suffering that should have been ours,
    the pain that we should have borne.
    All the while we thought that his suffering
    was punishment sent by God.
    5 But because of our sins he was wounded,
    beaten because of the evil we did.
    We are healed by the punishment he suffered,
    made whole by the blows he received.
    6 All of us were like sheep that were lost,
    each of us going his own way.
    But the Lord made the punishment fall on him,
    the punishment all of us deserved.

    Isaiah 59 Good News Translation (GNT)
    The Prophet Condemns the People’s Sins
    59 Don’t think that the Lord is too weak to save you or too deaf to hear your call for help!
    2 It is because of your sins that he doesn’t hear you. It is your sins that separate you from God when you try to worship him.
    3 You are guilty of lying, violence, Aand murder.
    4 You go to court, but you do not have justice on your side. You depend on lies to win your case. You carry out your plans to hurt others.
    5-6 The evil plots you make are as deadly as the eggs of a poisonous snake. Crush an egg, out comes a snake! But your plots will do you no good—they are as useless as clothing made of cobwebs!
    7 You are always planning something evil, and you can hardly wait to do it. You never hesitate to murder innocent people. You leave ruin and destruction wherever you go,
    8 and no one is safe when you are around. Everything you do is unjust. You follow a crooked path, and no one who walks that path will ever be safe.
    The People Confess Their Sin
    9 The people say, “Now we know why God does not save us from those who oppress us. We hope for light to walk by, but there is only darkness,
    10 and we grope about like blind people. We stumble at noon, as if it were night, as if we were in the dark world of the dead.
    11 We are frightened and distressed. We long for God to save us from oppression and wrong, but nothing happens.
    12 “Lord, our crimes against you are many. Our sins accuse us. We are well aware of them all.
    13 We have rebelled against you, rejected you, and refused to follow you. We have oppressed others and turned away from you. Our thoughts are false; our words are lies.
    14 Justice is driven away, and right cannot come near. Truth stumbles in the public square, and honesty finds no place there.
    15 There is so little honesty that those who stop doing evil find themselves the victims of crime.”
    The Lord Prepares to Rescue His People
    The Lord has seen this, and he is displeased that there is no justice.
    16 He is astonished to see that there is no one to help the oppressed. So he will use his own power to rescue them and to win the victory.
    17 He will wear justice like a coat of armor and saving power like a helmet. He will clothe himself with the strong desire to set things right and to punish and avenge the wrongs that people suffer.
    18 He will punish his enemies according to what they have done, even those who live in distant lands.
    19 From east to west everyone will fear him and his great power. He will come like a rushing river, like a strong wind.
    20 The Lord says to his people, “I will come to Jerusalem to defend you and to save all of you that turn from your sins.
    21 And I make a covenant with you: I have given you my power and my teachings to be yours forever, and from now on you are to obey me and teach your children and your descendants to obey me for all time to come.”

    Acts 2 Good News Translation (GNT)
    36 “All the people of Israel, then, are to know for sure that this Jesus, whom you crucified, is the one that God has made Lord and Messiah!”
    37 When the people heard this, they were deeply troubled and said to Peter and the other apostles, “What shall we do, brothers?”
    38 Peter said to them, “Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God’s gift, the Holy Spirit. 39 For God’s promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away—all whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
    40 Peter made his appeal to them and with many other words he urged them, saying, “Save yourselves from the punishment coming on this wicked people!” 41 Many of them believed his message and were baptized, and about three thousand people were added to the group that day. 42 They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers.

    Dear Reader,
    You have probably taken offence by now. If not, let’s see what spirit manifests itself in you and through you when you read the following comments:
    • This afternoon when the Springboks play against the Wallabies, the national anthem will be sung. Will the God of our Lord Jesus Christ be asked to bless South Africa? Of course not. It will be a god by the name of Nkosi, who is the god of the ancestor worshippers. Nkosi is not the name of our God, the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Our God’s Name is Yahweh or Jehovah or Father. How can the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ bless us when we insist on calling on the name of another god to bless us? Does that make you glad or does that make you sad?

    Exodus 20 Good News Translation (GNT
    The Ten Commandments
    20 God spoke, and these were his words: 2 “I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves.
    3 “Worship no god but me.
    4 “Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.
    5 Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the LORD your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation.
    6 But I show my love to thousands of generations[a] of those who love me and obey my laws.

    • South Africa is a fatherless nation with a very high rate of illegitimate births
    Under the previous bullet I tried to high-light from the scriptures that South Africa is under a curse for worshipping other gods, including the god of mammon amongst others, of course. But there is a far worse curse that needs to be broken and that is the following:
    Deuteronomy 23 Good News Translation (GNT)
    Exclusion from the Lord’s People
    2 “No one born out of wedlock or any descendant of such a person, even in the tenth generation, may be included among the LORD’s people.

    I can write pages and pages and more pages about the low moral standards, hatred, bitterness, rape, murder (especially the murder of unborn babies), corruption, blasphemy and other despicable crimes that take place in South Africa daily without the Church opposing it or preaching the Gospel to enable the Holy Spirit to change the hearts and lives of the people, beginning with the Church itself.

    At the same time, because South Africans are such a stiff necked people and the Church is so convinced that it can carry on sinning because of the crazy “do as you please” “Grace” message, allow me to repeat what the people said and what followed when Peter pointed out their sin to his congregation on the Day of Pentecost. Take note that they did not deny their wrong-doing and attack Peter, like Christians are inclined to do today.

    Acts 2
    37 When the people heard this, they were deeply troubled and said to Peter and the other apostles, “What shall we do, brothers?”
    38 Peter said to them, “Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God’s gift, the Holy Spirit.
    39 For God’s promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away—all whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
    40 Peter made his appeal to them and with many other words he urged them, saying, “Save yourselves from the punishment coming on this wicked people!”
    41 Many of them believed his message and were baptized, and about three thousand people were added to the group that day.

    • If that is what will happen at the Pretoria “IT’S TIME” meeting, then it will be worth it.
    • If that is not what will happen at the Pretoria “IT’S TIME” meeting, then it will just be another big meeting to prove that certain people know how to draw the crowds.

    This comment is written for the Glory of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ in the hope that you will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to respond in a way that will bless the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is also the Father of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
