A monthly column by farmer, preacher and writer for Jesus, Angus Buchan
This letter is completely and utterly tied up with the goodness of God to His people — He has been so gracious to us.
As I sit in my prayer room and meditate on the last few weeks, I really want to be honest with you; I need to continually pinch myself to make sure that I’m actually still on earth and I haven’t gone to heaven yet.
To hear one million plus people, pray the sinner’s prayer together is something I will never forget as long as I live.
It is truly the highlight of my life and that happened on April 22 2017 at the Wilde Als farm, 4 km north outside Bloemfontein.
Many of you reading this letter were there. We need to continue to encourage one another just like the bible says — “Iron sharpening iron.”
We need to talk and remind each other of what happened on that memorable day when the Holy Spirit visited us in many different ways.
Not even a week after that event, we went to the last Karoo Mighty Men Conference where I spoke on the Sunday morning.
That again was a momentous occasion to see over 40 000 people together. I made the altar call and every single person came to the front.
I have never heard such “Amen’s” spoken with such fervour, love and commitment as that day.
The “Amen” has become the war cry of the Mighty Men Conferences and it means: “So be it.”
I can honestly say, “So be it, Lord Jesus for our nation. We have prayed and we continue to pray, and we stand on Your Word. We know that You are already answering our prayers by the signs, wonders and miracles we are hearing; from the parliament, to the elements and to the individual. God be all the honour, praise and glory today and forever more.”
I just think of 2 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing, and that is what I shall continue to do until the day Jesus calls me home to Heaven.
My prayer life has been totally revolutionised since the “It’s Time” event took place.
God bless you
