Angus Buchan: A Rushing Mighty Wind

DVD Review by Andre Viljoen

Distributed by Christian Art Media

The rushing mighty wind that came up in the Ein Gedi desert, Israel, during Angus Buchan’s sermon at the opening of the Feast of Tabernacles on September 30 has been a talking point in Christian circles in recent months. Tens of thousands of people have viewed the clip on youtube and elsewhere, showing rain and blasts of wind suddenly coming up during Buchan’s sermon on revival. Before the wind arrives he reads from Acts 2 and asks God to do what he did at Pentecost when the Church was established in Jerusalem. Ein Gedi is on the western shore of the Dead Sea, 423 m below sea level. Locals say they have not seen such weather in September in more than two decades.

The DVD includes:
•  a five minutes edited clip showing the wind blowing equipment around the stage and ripping a big screen as Buchan continues to minister from the stage to the crowd who have been moved to safety some distance from the podium.
• a 25 minute commentary by Buchan, in which he reflects on the Ein Gedi experience which he says is hard to put into words. He says that he believes that “Acts Chapter 2 came alive” for the 4 500 people from many different nations who were present. He adds that they all experienced the power, the presence and the love of the Holy Spirit and that nobody who was there would ever take God lightly again.
• a 36 minute video showing Buchan’s entire message at Ein Gedi where he was preaching at the invitation of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem.

The DVD is available in Christian book shops.

  1. I saw this clip in church this morning..The Holy Spirit touched my heart and I wept in awe of our God…I can’t stay quiet if I have that river of life…

    • Dear Tarayn

      I am glad that the video clip touched you as you describe in your short comment. However, I wish to take the opportunity to lovingly encourage you to at all times be aware of the fact that we have a responsibility to make sure that we are not deceived by what others have to say about the Word of God and the alleged manifestations thereof. My prayer for you is that God will give you such a desire for His Word that neither the devil nor any man will be able to easily trip you up.

      I sense that you are a sincere lady who loves the Lord. At the same time I feel that I should respond to your comment as follows:

      One of the best known stories in the Gospels is that of Jesus calming the storm on the lake. Just from a simple reading of Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:37-41 and/or Luke 8:23-25, we would rightly conclude that the account demonstrates Jesus’s authority over the elements of nature. That same authority that Jesus has was passed on to His Church and I firmly believe that it is wrong to regard the storm in Angus’s meeting as the work of the Holy Spirit. There was a destructive spirit behind that storm. In the same way that Jesus calmed the storm on the lake with the words “Peace, be still!!!” in Mark chapter 4, Angus should have calmed the storm in the desert and thereby giving glory to God, in Jesus Name.

      The storm that was experienced by Angus’s group in the Ein Gedi Desert in 2012 is not in any way comparable with what took place in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost. I pray that you will carefully consider my comments on Acts Chapter 2, taking into account what took place on the Day of Pentecost versus what took place in Angus’s meeting in the desert.

      One of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit is the discernment of spirits or the distinguishing between spirits. From the first time I became aware of what took place in Angus’s meeting in 2012 in the desert, I have been troubled by the fact that fellow Christians, almost without exception, have marvelled at what took place there, as if it was a replica or something similar to what took place on the Day of Pentecost, when it was definitely not the case.

      That was a destructive windstorm that blew through that place and it is the devil who comes to kill, steal and destroy.

      Because of the contentious nature of “Christians” in general and their readiness to take offence and put up a fight when one attempts to bring some sort of correction, I have since 2012 resisted the temptation to address this matter via this medium. However, upon reading your comment of a few days ago on the report and video of several years ago, I felt in my spirit that you could possibly be a young lady who possibly needs to be encouraged to examine, compare and test everything you hear or see regarding the Word of God with the Word of God in order to avoid the possibility of being deceived, not only in this matter, but in other areas regarding the Word as well.

      I know I am sticking my neck out here, but the following comments are nevertheless offered for your careful and prayerful consideration. Feel free to respond and kindly advise if my comments make you glad or mad.

      Acts 2 New Living Translation (NLT)
      The Holy Spirit Comes
      2 On the day of Pentecost[a] all the believers were meeting together in one place.
      2 Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm,
      • Please note that it was a “sound from heaven” that sounded like a roaring, mighty rushing windstorm. There was no physical, roaring, mighty rushing windstorm in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost. In Angus’s video we saw a destructive windstorm tearing through the place that does not even come close to what happened in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost.

      and it filled the house where they were sitting.
      • Please note again that it (the sound) filled the house where they were sitting. Where were they sitting? In the Upper Room. The sound was inside the house and not outside. There was no physical wind. It was the sound that sounded like a mighty rushing wind. There was no actual wind in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost.
      3 Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.
      • In Angus’s video there is nothing that looked like flames or tongues of fire that appeared and settled on each of the persons present.

      4 And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages,[b] as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.
      • How many people in Angus’s video were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues as that destructive storm blasted its way through Angus’s meeting?

      1. Have you confessed and repented of every known sin?
      2. Do you believe that Jesus came to this world as a man, that He died, was buried, was raised from the dead?
      3. Have you made Jesus the Lord of every area of your life?
      4. Have you been baptised in water?
      5. Have you been filled with the Holy Spirit?
