Church Persecution in South Africa
Things have really changed in our country. The church of Jesus Christ is under attack in South Africa. All of a sudden, the normal Sunday worship service is labelled as noise by those in authority.
We are living in the times like those of the Apostles of Jesus. Those in power are trying by all means to silence people who are praying. This shows that our prayers are really destroying the kingdom of darkness. These days, there is no service that we can hold at Unity without Johannesburg Metro Police Department officials coming to disturb us. It is even funny. To show that it is just persecutions and harassment, they never come with any device to determine which level of sound is acceptable. We are in an industrial area. In an industrial area, the sound level accepted is very different from that of a residential area.
It is just so clear that the government the people elected into power has now turned against Christianity.
It is not just our church that is experiencing these attacks from government. Many churches of Christ are also being attacked. The councillors in some areas are urging members of the community to complain against churches. Some people are doing it and some are refusing to stand against God. Last night I received information about an order given to a Free State Church that they should demolish their church within 14 days. I was told that this is a church of Christ where many are getting saved. A councillor mobilized 63 people to sign a petition that they do not want the church, it is making noise for them. In many areas, things like this are happening. The corrupt leaders are inciting people to oppose true churches of Christ.
What will happen to this country when there are no watchmen on its walls who call upon God day and night? Is the situation not bad enough now? Do you not see that the devil is destroying our land? There is bloodshed daily. Women are left without husbands, children are left without parents because of the bloodshed in our country. Crime rate is very high. It does not matter who you are, you get affected by these things. How many people are affected by robberies, hijackings and murders? Last week I was Counselling and praying for two women who are left without husbands because of these murders.
The enemy comes to steal to kill and to destroy. South Africa, are you chasing away God from your country? Do you know what the end result will be? Evil men will rule you and they will continue to satisfy their gods with your blood. We are approaching Good Friday now, how many human sacrifices are going to be made here in our country? Do you think the death rate is just a normal thing?
