Guilt by Association

Guilt by Association

Guilt by AssociationGUILT BY ASSOCIATION

Many well-known and greatly esteemed preachers and teachers have absolutely no qualms whatsoever about their association with some of the weirdest, worst and most dangerous false prophets in these last days’ of exponential apostasy. Here are a few well-documented examples.

  1. STEPHAN JOUBERT: In cahoots with Leonard Sweet, Rob Bell, Ron Martoia, Johan Geyser, Trevor Hudson, Nelus Niemandt, Eugene Peterson and Jan van der Watt, to name but a few.
  2. JOHAN GEYSER: In cahoots with Stephan Joubert, Thomas Keating, Leonard Sweet, Rob Bell, Ron Martoia, Trevor Hudson, Thomas Merton and other false teachers in the mystically engineered Emergent Church, to name but a few.
  3. TREVOR HUDSON: In cahoots with Stephan Joubert, Johan Geyser, Theo Geyser (who manages to see Jesus in a sangoma/witch doctor without the help of his glasses), Thomas Keating (who in turn is in cahoots with the integral guru, Ken Wilber), Ron Matroia and Rob Bell, to name but a few.
  4. KENNETH COPELAND: In cahoots with (and now also in bed with) the Pope of Rome and the Roman Catholic Church, to name but one.Are you connected Annie Coetzee
  5. DION FORSTER: In cahoots with Henri le Saux, Jan van der Watt, Angus Buchan and Graham Power, to name but a few.
  6. GRAHAM POWER: In cahoots with the Parliament of World Religions and the Roman Catholic Church, to name but two.
  7. JANNIE PELSER: In cahoots with SAIH (The South African Institute of Hypnotism), and especially with hypnotists Wilco Roberts and Arno Stadler whom he calls his brothers in Christ, and the South African New Ager, Annie Coetzee, to name but a few.
  8. NELUS NIEMANDT: In cahoots with just about every Tom, Dick and Harry in the Emergent Church. To use a well-known adage, he has even opted to get into bed with homosexuals. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

A Very Lonely Path

A Very Lonely Path

The Narrow WayA Very Lonely Path for a Genuine Christian

John 21:18-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)

18 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, when you were young you girded yourself [put on your own belt or girdle] and you walked about wherever you pleased to go. But when you grow old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will put a girdle around you and carry you where you do not wish to go.

19 He said this to indicate by what kind of death Peter would glorify God. And after this, He said to him, Follow Me!

20 But Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved, following—the one who also had leaned back on His breast at the supper and had said, Lord, who is it that is going to betray You?

21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, Lord, what about this man?

22 Jesus said to him, If I want him to stay (survive, live) until I come, what is that to you? [What concern is it of yours?] You follow Me!


Graham Power meets Pope Francis

Graham Power meets Pope Francis

pope francis and graham powerGraham Power meets Pope Francis from the Roman Catholic Church

Just recently Graham power went to meet Pope Francis to discuss how Christians can take a stand against corruption.  After Graham Power met with Pope Francis he then traveled to the G20 summit in Australia to take part in a campaign that urges governments to take corruption and tax evasion seriously.
Pope Francis apparently is a strong advocate against corruption as it affects the poor in such a massive way.  Graham Power was overjoyed when he was asked to meet with the Pope, not because he was in any way going to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to him that the Pope may be saved out of the Roman Catholic pagan church.  No, Graham Power was excited because he views the Pope as a Christian that will bring unity to all Christians in the world. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Mogale 4 Christ (2014)


One of the most magnanimous episodes in the the life of Jesus Christ – when He still roamed the earth just prior to his ascension – was when He gave his disciples the following marching orders:-Click to enlarge

“We all recognize a rich person when we see one. These individuals seem to possess qualities that the rest of us desperately lack yet yearn to attain. But the possibility to becoming wealthy is a skill and not a gift allocated to a select few, nor is financial independence achieved by some form of magic or luck.

Do you want your life to include an abundance of riches with the prospect of continuous wealth creation? Do you often dream of living a more fruitful and financially rewarding life? Do you aspire or wish to achieve your full potential in all areas of life? Are you prepared to challenge current limitations to become debt free, cultivate financial intelligence and become money-wise? Then, teach all people: » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Cape Town 4 Jesus (2010)

Cape Town 4 Jesus (2010)

Cape Town for Jesus / Kaapstad vir Jesus (2010)

The Greenpoint Stadium in Cape was packed with 50 000 “Jesus followers” to pray for Cape Town and our nation on 22 March 2010. Dignitaries of all sorts were in attendance while the hat-donned preacher Angus Buchan was the main man. Dr. Dion Forster seems to have played a major part as an organisational facilitator in the event.

Being a keen follower of Jesus Christ myself and an avid researcher who loves to read and study others’ books, I, with great  expectation, clicked on the link which took me to Dr. Dion’s Forster’s website and his blog.

The first thing that caught my eye was the books he had written, amongst othersAn uncommon spiritual path – the quest to find Jesus beyond conventional Christianity.” “Now that’s very interesting” I thought to myself. “Isn’t that wonderful?” . . . some of our most esteemed religious leaders in South such as Graham Power, Angus Buchan and Dion Forster want to win the entire Cape Town for Jesus by virtue of an uncommon spiritual path, a path that sets Capetonians on a quest to find Jesus beyond conventional Christianity. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Latter Rain – Has it Poured into Your Church?

Latter Rain - Has it Poured into Your Church?

lion of judah - latter rain

What are the tell tale signs to know if your church is following Latter Rain / Manifest Sons of God teaching:

Here from is an explanation of what Latter Rain teaching is. Sounds very Christian, sounds even biblical, but it is far from it.

“The Latter Rain is God’s great end-time ministry. The Latter Rain is the Restoration of the Church and the Harvest of souls, the gathering together of His people to be God’s Kingdom on earth. The Latter Rain is the promise given to us in the last days for the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. The Latter Rain blesses each of us with times of refreshing, it is for you and all who love peace to enter into now.

The foundation of the Latter Rain Page is firm in the pursuit of truth, justice and mercy. Deliverance to the captive church from the traditional legalism and quenching of the Spirit is through pointing you to the love of God through Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Lord has given Christians the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers As One Body

* We prepare for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
* Harvest the Fruit of the Latter Rain
* Follow Him as the Army of the Lord into His Glory” » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

What to EXPECT in the Last Days

What to EXPECT in the Last Days
Colosseum  - last days


In these last days that we are in, I would love to attend a Mighty Men Conference like I did the Absa Stadium conference back in 2008 so I could hear exactly what Angus preached for myself.  Of course I could not attend the MMC because women are not allowed as you all know, they even had security at the gates to make sure women did not sneak in.  The MMC are built on the principle of the Promise Keepers (Freemasons). It’s tough being a women nowadays, banned from hearing the word of God. Not that it was even preached there, so maybe it was a good thing. Women were protected by God from attending so they can help their husbands snap out of the hypnosis and lies by telling them the truth; reading the Word of God to them and through the complete guidance of the Holy Spirit realise that they have been deceived.

You know, it’s a common fact that men just don’t think sometimes that’s why women generally ask for directions when men are driving ;) Marriage is a joint union between husband and wife through Jesus Christ (I am talking about a husband and wife who are both born again.) She is there is look after him and love him and support him. He is there to look after her and love her and support her. She does silly things and he helps her get out of trouble. He does silly things and she helps him get out of trouble – all this by solely relying on Jesus for assistance – Jesus is THE problem solver.  Both men and women, husbands and wives, boys and girls can do nothing in their own strength. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Amillennialism vs Dominionism

Amillennialism vs Dominionism

Amillennialiism vs DominionismAmillennialism and Dominionism “fits like a hand in a glove”, says C Peter Wagner, head apostle from the New Apostolic Reformation.  Below we will analyze the two and we will see that he is quite right.

What is Amillennialism:

Amillennialism (Latin: a- “no” + millennialism)

Amillennialism is a view in Christian end-times theology named for its rejection of the theory that Jesus Christ will have a thousand-year long, physical reign on the earth. This is in opposition to pre-millennial and some post-millennial views of chapter 20 of the Book of Revelation.

In contrast, the amillennial view holds that the thousand years mentioned in Revelation 20 is a symbolic number, not a literal description; that the millennium has already begun and is identical with the current church age, (or more rarely, that it ended with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70). » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

The Farce of Women’s Day – 9 August

The Farce of Women's Day - 9 August

The farce of Womens dayThe Farce of Women’s Day

Women’s days has come and gone (9 August) with much fanfare, media exposure and, believe it or not, the glossy accolades of well-known leaders who’d been accused of raping women in the past. South Africa seems to be the only country in the entire world where men of esteem in both governmental en non-governmental institutes can be charged with rape and come off scott free, and then sanctimoniously participate in Women’s Day without any compunction whatsoever. Indeed, some of them have even managed to reach the highest office in government while they were virtually caught with their pants down in an HIV free shower cubicle (read here). » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Angus Buchan says, “Put your Doctrinal Differences Aside!”

Angus Buchan says, "Put your Doctrinal Differences Aside!"

In Dion Forster’s  book,  “An uncommon spiritual path – the quest to find Jesus beyond conventional Christianity” , the editorial review of his book, provides says:

“It would seem that for many Christians, and particularly for persons who have left the Church, conventional Christianity does not provide enough to sustain their spiritual lives. This book charts an uncommon spiritual path by examining the non-dual spirituality of Henri le Saux (Swami Abhishiktananda), a French Benedictine monk in India. His approach is challenging, courageous, and even unsettling in some instances. However, his deep commitment to finding Christ is an inspiration.” – Mobipocket

Interreligious Dialogue – Rethinking Theology – Universalism

“The solution for the crisis of the world must be found in common by all people of goodwill, by all men devoted to truth, in whatever way the truth may have manifested itself in the depth of their hearts. Their dialogue will be a searchlight which will probe the present societies of men, but will first scan the heart of those taking part in it. It will be the test of their allegiance to truth alone in their respective religious or humanist commitments. . .


NAR Invasion of SA – Rick Joyner, Angus Buchan, Danie Slabbert, Nevil Norden @ Apostolic Prophetic Conference – July 2012

Angus Buchan - Rick JoynerI knew it would happen and I waited patiently for this day, the day that Rick Joyner (Apostle in the New Apostolic Reformation NAR) teamed up with Angus Buchan at a conference.  This is not a new union, oh no no.  Rick Joyner and other Apostles and Prophets from the USA have had their finger in the South African ‘Reformation’ since as early as 2004, probably even earlier. In 2010 Prophetess Cindy Jacobs was invited to speak at the Global Day of Prayer organised by Graham Power a friend of Angus Buchan.

In 2008 I wrote an article on Angus Buchan called The Dominionist Faith of Angus Buchan – Faith Like Potatoes and in it I noted the following:

“There is great prophetic interest in South Africa and its southern coastline from international circles. The major reason for this is because of the many prophecies that have gone out about the latter rain move of God that is to erupt from South Africa and spread into the nations.” [Emphasis added]  Taken from here (<–this website has been since been removed)

The well-known prophet, Rick Joyner, visited Cape Town, South Africa in July 2004, and during a powerful prophetic conference on 22 July 2004, said that… » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Open Letter to Graham Power regarding the Unashamedly Ethical Campaign

Open Letter to Graham Power regarding the Unashamedly Ethical Campaign
Unashamedly EthicalMr Graham Power
Unashamedly Ethical Campaign

Dear Mr Power


I have read your “3 wave vision” to deal with “our common crisis” (i.e., “moral decay”) and desire to “stem the filthy river of corruption across the earth” by forming “Unashamedly Ethical communities all over the world,” with great interest – as stipulated on A person does not have to be a rocket scientist to recognise that the world, including our own society, is in a state of moral chaos. Corruption amongst Government officials and talk shows of the kind of Jerry Springer send shivers down the spine of anyone with an ounce of moral sensibility. But moral chaos never comes as a surprise to Christians for they know there is a deep connection between a secular worldview and ethical/moral beliefs and conduct.

Although your vision and the activities ensuing from it seem inspired and pursued with unshakeable confidence in its truth, I find it difficult to share in it. I would therefore be grateful if you could correct my understanding of your vision. As I see it, the commitment to being Unashamedly Ethical is: » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

The ‘Manifest Sons of God’ belief of Angus Buchan

The 'Manifest Sons of God' belief of Angus Buchan

Angus Buchan-Manifest Sons Of God TeachingWhat does Angus Buchan really believe?

On many occasions you will hear Angus Buchan near the end of his preaching shout out loud, “…..waiting for the Manifestation of the Sons of God”.  But what does he mean by this?   Well today I will explain to you exactly what Angus Buchan believes.

Romans 8:19“19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”

Manifest Sons of God

In the Latter Rain Movement they have what they call the ‘Manifest Sons of God’ where they twist the above scripture to mean that some will obtain immortality by incarnating Jesus Christ before He returns» PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
