Angus Buchan – It’s Time to Unite All Faiths under Rome

Angus Buchan - It's Time to Unite All Faiths under Rome

Angus Buchan – It’s Time to Unite All Faiths under Rome

That’s right, “It’s Time”, time to unite all faiths in a National Day of Prayer in Bloemfontein under Rome.  The Vryheid Herald says:  “MEN and women of faith will gather on April 22 in Bloemfontein to take part in Angus Buchan’s National Day of Prayer.” (Emphasis added)

Angus Buchan says here on Gateway news:

“We are calling one million people to attend: from every race group, every denomination and every walk of life – men, women and children. The entrance is free, no tickets will be sold, and no collections will betaken at the event.”

“We firmly believe that if our Nation stands together as one, and calls upon the Name of Jesus Christ, He will hear us and heal our nation and bring peace to our hearts and homes.”

Angus Buchan, stated in an official announcement:

“We are tired of people taking the law into their own hands. We are going to call upon the Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to our beloved South Africa. He says “If My people who are called by My name” – that is you and I. So I want to ask you to pray for us.”

Simon Magus and the Apostle Simon Peter

Simon Magus and the Apostle Simon Peter

Simon the Sorcerer or Simon the Magician, in Latin Simon Magus, is a religious figure whose confrontation with Peter is recorded in Acts 8:9-24. According to Acts, Simon was a Samaritan Magus or religious figure of the 1st century AD and a convert to Christianity.   Simon the Sorcerer wanted to buy the Holy Spirit from the Apostles to use for his own personal gain.  The sin of simony, or paying for position and influence in the church, is named after Simon.

1 John 2:18  “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”

Matthew 24:23-24  “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 23 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

The apostle Peter’s real name was Simon. When Jesus gave Simon the nickname Peter, Jesus did it with a smile, because Simon’s faith was so strong.  Jesus gave Simon the name of Cephas in the Syriac language, Cephas meaning, a stone.  Peter is the Greek translation of Cephas.

John 1:42  “And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.”
