The Gospel of Power: Who is Behind the Violence and Mayhem in SA? (Part 5)
The New Israel and The Gospel of Power (The Send) – On God’s Side?
It is a many-splendored thing to urge South Africa, and in particular, the Afrikaner nation to repent, lest God’s judgments come upon them as it had on Israel because they believed they were God’s chosen people. However, it is not so kosher to spread the lie that God has cast Israel (the twelve tribes) aside to replace her with all those who are on God’s side (including the Vita Dei Word School and the Shofar Church of Gielie Jordaan in Potchefstroom, and last but not least Stephan Joubert’s Ekerk).
Are those who are kindling strange fire in every corner of the world on God’s side? Based on Matthew 7: 21-23, it is impossible to believe that they are on God’s side.
Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works [“dunamis,” powerfully miraculous works]? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23).
Compare the above passage from Scripture with Andy Byrd’s Magna Carte on his Facebook page (6th March post) to see what Christ meant.
The world desperately needs a demonstration of power like Kathryn [Kuhlman] and many others have walked in! The Gospel is power! [DTW comment: Note carefully, “The Send” is not interested in the power of Jesus Christ or his Holy Spirit. They want Kathryn Kuhlman’s and Aimee Semple McPherson’s power. Benny Hin sucked Aimee Semple MacPerson’s “power” from her dead bones and danced with necromaniac death when he visited her grave. See video below]. Power to deliver, heal and save! We can’t settle for a Gospel without power! It’s not the Gospel that Jesus announced! Let’s pray that we, the glorious bride of Christ, would be known as the people of love, humility, and tremendous power! NOW IS THE TIME!

Yep, NOW IS THE TIME (aka Angus Buchan’s “IT IS TIME) for another worldwide false revival, another false outpouring of the Spirit, the appearance of another false Jesus, another spirit, and another gospel. Indeed, in their bogus zeal to usher in the Kingdom of God on earth they are preparing the way for Antichrist and his false kingdom of peace on earth. May God have mercy on their pitiful souls.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5: 3).
All God’s Promises are Yea and Amen in Christ Jesus
Indeed, God is, as Riekert Botha affirmed, the same yesterday, tomorrow, and forevermore, and neither is He a man that He should lie (Hebrews 18: 8; Numbers 13: 19). Moreover. all God’s promises are immutable and forever the same, “For all the promises of God in him [Jesus Christ] are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20). God’s promises can only fail and come to naught if Jesus Christ were to cease existing, and that is impossible. And this is precisely why God also promised, “
Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. (Jeremiah 31:35-36).
Take careful note that He is talking about Israel in ethnic terms and not in relation to a spiritual nation, a.k.a. all those who are on God’s side and have bowed their knees to God, as Riekert Botha and his cohorts, Stephan Joubert, Jan van der Watt, and Gielie Jordaan prefer to believe. Indeed, their assumption that the universal church (all those who are on God’s side) is the new Israel, and an allegory of the twelve tribes of Israel because the Old Testament twelve tribes no longer exist, is an insult to God and his immutable promises, let alone to Jesus Christ in whom all God’s promises are yea and amen forevermore.
The word “amen” means “verily”, “truly”, “it is true”, and “let it be so”. How dare they say “amen” after they have prayed in the Name of Jesus Christ, and do not believe that God’s promises are ALL YEA AND AMEN in his Son, in whom He is well-pleased, a phrase Riekert Botha often uses. This abomination is akin to lip service whilst their hearts are far removed from God’s immutable promises to Israel, and thus from Jesus Christ in whom ALL God’s promises to Israel are yea and amen. It is impossible to say “amen” in the Name of Jesus Christ and deny the “amen” of God’s promises in Him. It is nothing less than blatant hypocrisy and lip service, of which Botha double-standardly accuses others.
Are they blind or merely reluctant and rebelliously obstinate to believe that God is not finished with Israel and that He shall bring to fruition every single promise He had made to the nation of Israel, albeit a small remnant? When God promised Abraham to give his seed (the Israelite) the land of Canaan from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates, He commanded him to take a heifer of three years old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon, and to divide them (except the turtle dove and the young pigeon), and to lay the slaughtered pieces one against the other. This was how the ancients usually ratified a mutual covenant when both the parties passed through the divided animals as a sign that they both were bound by a lifelong, irreversible, and unchangeable covenant or promise.
Why did God put Abraham to sleep? God knew that Abraham’s physical seed (Israel) would never keep their part of the deal (covenant) because man’s heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9). Therefore, the covenant had to be an unconditional one and not an “if you do this, I will do that for you” agreement. And this is the reason why God had to pass through the divided slain animals alone, “For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself.” (Hebrews 6:13). Those who pooh-pooh God’s promises to Israel regarding the Promised Land on earth are vilifying God’s solemn vow to Himself and grievously suggesting that God who is greater and mightier than all cannot keep his promises. No wonder they have waded so deeply into the mires of deceit and another gospel, and more recently into mysticism.
The Amillennial notion that the land is a reference to the heavenly city of Jerusalem in Hebrews 12:22, holds no water, simply because God’s covenant with Abraham and his physical seed (Israel) regarding their Promised Land on earth is an everlasting covenant (Genesis 17:7). For it to be an everlasting covenant, the land must be part of the new earth that God is going to create after He has destroyed the old earth with fire. This land which God has promised to the remnant of Israel is not the heavenly Jerusalem of Hebrews 12:22.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: (Isaiah 46:9-10).
About 11 minutes and 30 seconds into the video Botha says, “And the Afrikaner used his church and its religion, not just to go against God but also everything that God says.” He should search his own heart to see whether he is not guilty of his own indictment, especially in the area of God’s promises to Israel as a nation, to Christ’s bride regarding the Pre-tribulation Rapture, and Christ Jesus’ Millennial reign of peace on earth. Botha believes that nothing more will happen on earth after the Second Coming of Christ. In other words, he goes against everything God says about his Son’s Millennial reign of peace on earth, in much the same way he scoffs at the Rapture. He seems to have no fear of God’s words in Revelation 22: 18-19.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
