Critical time to stand together as one body in SA — Angus Buchan

SA Christians uniting in prayer at It’s Time Bloemfontein prayer gathering in 2017

A message from farmer-evangelist Angus Buchan following Tuesday night’s emergency leaders’ virtual meeting with Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng

Like never before, we need to stand together as one body. The devil has a habit of dividing and ruling. We will not allow that to happen.

We will implement Psalm 133. When we stand together in unity, God will command a blessing.

Last night [Tuesday October 13] on Zoom we had an incredible meeting with Christian community leaders, church leaders and business Leaders, and farm leaders from all over the country, which was chaired by our very own Chief Justice Mogoeng. And of course we felt the tangible presence of our beloved Lord Jesus.

I am not suggesting for a minute that we as Christians, black and white, need to become doormats for the devil and his demons from hell — not at all. We need to defend ourselves and especially our families at all costs; we need to take all the precautions necessary.

However, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities and powers of this world. Therefore, we fight on our knees in the prayer closet, using our trusted Intercessors. And by the way there is a literal prayer army building daily at this present moment as I write this letter, and they are coming in from all over the world.

Even as we have seen it take place in Parliament before (We’ve already seen it done through our Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng) and we need to encourage one another continually that God honours the effective fervent prayers of the righteous (James 5:16).

Like never before we must not doubt the Word of God or the promises of God. Or even what the Lord has said He will do, and we must not in any way digress from His commandments as hard as they may seem to be.

We need to love one another, we need to agree to disagree on certain points, but never on the Word of God. At the end of the day the Bible is our ultimate plumb-line which will keep us straight.

This attack that we are experiencing in our beloved South Africa at the moment is not something that is unknown to God. In fact, it is not something that is even strange. Jesus Himself was tested in all these different ways (Hebrews 4:15) and yet He stood firm and He did not fail by succumbing to the devil and his filthy lies.

Jesus’ response was: “It is written.” We as Christians will do the same as our Leader.

May God bless you as farmers, farm workers, businessmen, housewives, students, and especially the children living in South Africa at this critical time.

Continue to remain steadfast in the Lord, and in all His ways. He will not fail us, (Hebrews 13:6 — the Lord is my helper, I will not fear not fear. What can man do to me)

Yours in Christ’s service,
Angus and Jill Buchan


  1. Thankyou to our wonderful Christian leaders in South Africa, who stand firm on the Word of God and lead us in God’s way! What the devil meant for harm has turned out to bring glory to our God, King Jesus!

  2. I thank God for the Chief Justice, and for other God-appointed leaders such as Angus Buchan, whose word has challenged me and encouraged me today. Let us all redouble our efforts in prayer, the more so as we see these clear signs of the way being prepared for our dear Lord Jesus Christ’s return, (Matt. 24: 4- 6).
