Keep On Going

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

As we face the end of another year many of us might have had a few disappointments during 2016.

Maybe you did not quite succeed in your goals, maybe you did not realize your dream for this year. Well, we are not alone because the Apostle Paul, who wrote two thirds of the New Testament, and who had a personal, on-on-one encounter with the living Christ, said, “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.” (Philippians 3:12)

So therefore, you and I need to keep on going, and not lose heart because, He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

I honestly believe, with all my heart, that the best has yet to come for us who believe.

God bless you as you blow that trumpet loud and clear!

Angus and Jill Buchan.

Prayer Letter – November 2016

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear Prayer Partners, We all know that the 19th November 2016 will go down in the annals of our history as a historic day when the Christians of this nation, and their generations to follow, will remember that on this day all the children of the Lord came together to have a Sacred Assembly at FNB stadium in Soweto as ordained by the Lord. A multitude of prayers, pleas, supplications and cries for repentance have gone up before the Lord for this nation and will continue in the days to come, culminating on the 19th November 2016 when our brother Angus will address the nation at the stadium and on radio. I want you to join with me in prayer from the scriptures as instructed by the Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. I would like to encourage you to come and seek the Lord because He is near us and has availed Himself to us. Let us turn away from our wicked ways and turn to Him who is willing to forgive us and cleanse us as sinners by His blood that He shed for us. Let us abandon every evil thought and bring every thought under His authority and ask Him to give us His thoughts because His thoughts are not like our thoughts, His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Yet, His thoughts and His ways are now within our reach because ‘He is the way the truth and the life..’ Let us ask the Lord to give us the fullness of His Holy Spirit which is like rain that waters the earth in order to bring about a great harvest to the one who sowed in time. Ask the Lord to make you a sower as from now. Let us ask the Lord to give us His word, the Bread of Life, to embrace because His word remains forever. His word never fails and always accomplishes what He plans and causes it to prosper wherever and to whoever He sends it. Ask the Lord to give Angus the word that He wants to bring across to us as Christians that we may become fruitful and useful in His hands for generations to come. Pray for the protection of Angus and every person that will participate in the honouring of this event, particularly against schemes of the evil one. May the Lord bless you and keep you, may he make His face to shine on you and be gracious to you, and may the Lord look upon you and give you peace. Leon.

Counting The Cost

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

Early this morning while spending time with the Master, I felt very strongly in my spirit that Jesus relayed to me that as we draw near to his second coming, and we see all the signs around us pointing that way, we need to really, and honestly, sit down and count the cost! Basically, if our faith and allegiance to Jesus Christ in these last days is costing us nothing, then it is actually worth nothing. In the Gospel of Luke and chapter 9: 57-62, we see many people wanting to follow after Jesus, but every single time that discipleship came at a cost, and priorities were required. For example, there was a man who wanted desperately to follow the Lord, but who said, “Please let me first bury my Father.” Jesus replied, “Let the dead bury their own dead.” There was another man who said, “Lord I desire to follow you, but let me first go and say goodbye to my family.” Jesus said, “Once you have put your hand to the plough there is absolutely no turning back for anything.” We are going up to the third biggest stadium in the world on Saturday 19th November to meet with God as a Nation. For us there can be no possibility of turning back for anyone or anything. We will see you there with at least 100,000 others who are committed to see South Africa supernaturally changed by the hand of God, as we his people, repent on behalf of a nation that has turned its back on God, we will see you there. God Bless, Angus and Jill Buchan 2 Chronicles 7:14

Joy Comes In The Morning

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

Having returned last night from the City of Gold (Egoli), I can honestly say that very rarely in my walk with God have I ever been as excited as I felt this beautiful Monday morn, the last day of October 2016 . The Lord Jesus has spoken so very clearly to me through His beautiful word, the bible, in and through Psalm 30: 1 and 12. Yes, I have felt like I have been in the proverbial pit, with no light at the end of the tunnel for a while now. But this morning the weeping was over, and joy has filled my heart to overflowing. God is going to perform something supernatural at the “Calabash” like we have never seen before in this ministry! Yesterday we had three very powerful encounters with the public. Two meetings took place in large, predominantly black radio stations in Johannesburg, and it was so amazing to come face to face with the public at large, and then to hear their heartfelt frustrations, anger, and hope, for the future of this nation. It was a wonderful revelation, and conformation for me that the Sacred Assembly is right on time. Then to have the privilege to speak at Ashley Bell’s dynamic Church, which was packed to the very rafters with eager souls wanting to hear from Jesus Himself. As I walked in to the meeting the very air was pregnant with excitement and expectation. The Church had been praying and believing that it was for a time such as this, we have been called. (Esther 4:14) “The Lord is my Helper”, and He has turned my mourning into dancing, – Psalm 30:11 Please collect your tickets from Computicket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The people of God are coming to the stadium in their masses to repent, to confess, and then to receive, and Jesus has promised me, and you, that yet once again he shall not disappoint. From the top government officials, to the simple hard working man in the street, they are all coming. Please do not miss out on this God moment in your life. As one dear intercessor said, “This type of meeting may never take place again.” God Bless you richly, Angus and Jill Buchan.

Fence Sitters

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

There is no place left for fence sitters any longer. The situation that we see ourselves involved in requires serious decision making and total commitment from every single follower of Jesus Christ. We can no longer remain indifferent to our circumstances.

I firmly believe God has chosen you and I for a time such as this (Esther 4: 14) and that we have a vital role to play in the destiny of this confused, depraved and desperate world in which we are living.

Jesus made it very clear that if we are not for Him, then we are most defiantly against Him. (Matthew 12:30)

I firmly believe that the sovereignty, and authenticity of God’s Holy Word, the Bible, is at stake in these last days. Folk have no fear or regard for God’s written instructions.

When we mess with the written Word of God then we mess with Jesus!

We have to become much more outspoken about God’s instructions to us through His Word. We can no longer turn a blind eye when nations, churches and even Christian leaders twist and change God’s Word to suit themselves. You and I have been called to be Watchmen. An effective Watchman tells the People when the enemy is coming, “we must blow the trumpet loud and clear”.

God Bless you. We will see you on the 19th November at the FNB Stadium when we shall blow the trumpet loud and crystal clear. There is lots of hope for this Nation if we quite simply get off the fence, then speak up!

Angus and Jill Buchan.

Revelation 3:16.

An Open Letter from Dr. Arno van Niekerk.

Written by Shalom on . Posted in Article

My dear fellow believer in Jesus Christ,

We need a Godly intervention in South Africa. If we want to see our nation turn around there is no other way than for us to first humble ourselves before the King of kings. Political and economic transformation cannot change the hearts of people. Only deep-rooted spiritual transformation can bring real change. The nation is ripped apart and only Jesus can heal South Africa. He must be central to change in the country, otherwise it won’t be true and lasting. The current turmoil is the poisonous fruit we are picking for building on the sand and compromising God’s guidelines. It is time to lead the nation back to building on the Rock and put the Cornerstone in place. It’s up to us.

A Sacred Assembly of 100 000 South Africans at FNB Stadium in Soweto.

God said: “Call a sacred assembly” (Joel 2:15). This is the Scripture God gave Angus Buchan and several other significant leaders in the country to put into action. Already there is favour from the Lord as He made the FNB Stadium in Soweto available. God has selected this place, with its history of pain and ruin, to activate healing and Godly restoration in South Africa. The enemy keeps on using racial enmity to destroy South Africa. We need to come into the presence of God and confess and forgive. Our hearts need to be transformed, melted and joined together by the Holy Spirit. It is envisioned that at least 50 000 black and 50 000 white South Africans, from all walks of life, gather there in humble submission to Almighty God. It is time to act. WHY is this so important?

Only when many of God’s people, the church, take the initiative to collectively come before the Lord on behalf of the nation, will the direction change. “Bend the church and bow the world,” is what brought about the Welsh Revival in the early 1900s. There rests a huge Calling (and destiny) on South Africa in the times we live in, but the enemy does everything to prevent it. It is up to us – God’s people – to direct the country INTO the future He intends for us and AWAY from the current destructive path we find ourselves on. Why can’t we all just pray at home? No, Jesus gives the answer in John 17:21, “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” The visible unity of the church (with each other and with God) speak very strongly to the world. The Holy Spirit then brings conviction. But if we remain passive, we have no impact and nothing changes. It is when we draw up, UNITE and gather in a Holy Assembly, that a message of new direction is loud and clear. And this is only the beginning of change. Only a united church can heal a divided nation. #BeTheChange

This, dear child of God, is a kind but URGENT invitation to gather together at the FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday, 19 November 2016, for a historic event that will open up a new prophetic path for South Africa as black and white stand together like never before. No doubt: we need each other and we need God’s intervention and leadership. It is a sincere and Spirit-led initiative that is not focused on man or traditions, but on God. Our nation is on the brink – it calls for drastic action. The good fight of faith starts on our knees; it is the position of victory. You are most needed here.

The Lord bless you and keep you,
Dr Arno van Niekerk.

A Nation That Forgets God Is Doomed

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

Time is fast running out for us all in South Africa! How much worse must things become before we call unto our beloved Heavenly Father to intervene on our behalf?

This is not the responsibility of the unbeliever, this is the obligation and command of each bible believing Christian in this nation right now!

The word of God states very clearly, in 2 Chronicles 7:14,  “If My people, who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Whose people?

That’s quite correct: God’s people. We need to stand together as we see what is taking place in the nation at this very moment – the drought is not abating, the students are extremely unhappy and frustrated, the Rand is steadily slipping in value, and law and order is breaking down.

If ever we need God to intervene it is now!

We have a mandate from God to hold a “Sacred Assembly” at the FNB Stadium on the 19 of November, 2016. Tickets will be FREE! 100,000 of them can be collected at any Computicket outlet in the Country, from the 21st of October, that’s next week!

God will meet with us if we are serious with Him. I trust to see you there.

God Bless,
Angus and Jill Buchan.

My youngest daughter brought a beautiful gift to my wife and I last night. It was a picture in a lovely rustic frame of a beautiful little girl who looked like she was about a year and a half old. She obviously came from a poor rural family and was sitting in her bath – a bucket of water.

She looked so angelic, so beautiful, with a big smile on her little face and a lovely dimple on her cheek.

The caption under this little picture stated, “You are rich when you are content with what you have”.

In book of 1 Timothy 6:6, the Bible tells us, “Godliness with contentment is great gain”.

Let us all go out today and start counting our blessings and thank God for what He has given us!

God Bless,
Angus and Jill Buchan.

Time for the Whosoevers

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

Sacred Assembly Slide

The time is now for the Whosoevers to enter into the Kingdom of God!

Romans 10:13 states very clearly that, “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Why, you might very well ask?

Well, quite simply because time is fast running out for mankind, the tell-tale signs are everywhere. People need the Lord desperately. They want answers. They want them straight, and they want them simple, just like the Master spoke when he walked upon the earth. The prodigal needs to know that he is welcome back home whenever he wants.
The prostitutes, that her sins are forgiven, and she must go and sin no more.
The widow needs to know Jesus will be to her the husband she does not have.
The orphan, that he has a father in heaven who he can call, Daddy!

Now you and I, dear follower of Christ, need to get out into the world around us and tell the broken hearted, the guilty, the so-called failures, the confused, and the fearful, that Jesus loves them and wants to save them from a sure death that is theirs if they carry on the way they are going.

Romans 10:14 says: How then shall they call on Him whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?

That’s where you and I come in, we must tell them lest they perish without God.

God Bless,
Angus and Jill Buchan

Romans 10:17 –  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

Sacred Assembly, 19 November, FNB Stadium – Official Announcement

Written by Angus Buchan on . Posted in From Angus' Desk

We believe God has given to the Believers in South Africa a commandment and a mandate to gather together in one place, at one time and to repent (say sorry), so that Jesus can heal this land.

People from every walk of life are called; men, women, boys, girls, black, white, Indian, coloured, old and young.

From every station in life; ministers, farmers, sportsmen, housewives, old age pensioners, school teachers, shop keepers, students, businessmen, politicians, the widow and the orphan, the unemployed , miners, fishermen… yes indeed, the whosoever.

We are as a nation going to petition Almighty God to intervene on behalf of His people who are in a desperate situation, fast becoming the laughing stock of the world!

Why should the nations say among themselves, ” Where is their God?” –  Joel 2:17.

From the extreme north of our beloved SA , down to the Karoo, folk are asking us to pray for rain. Join us, come together at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg on November 19th 2016. Let us repent before a Holy God and ask Him to forgive us, to heal our nation and to deliver us from a self-destructive spirit of violence, corruption, hatred, unforgiveness, anger and negativity.

We are all privileged to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with a most warm and loving people. The forces of darkness however are fast decimating and we have got to draw a line in the sand – “This far devil… and no further”.

We need to put Jesus first again. We need to repent for allowing this nation to slip backwards and for compromising our Godly standards. We need to ask our loving God to visit us once more!

When we do this as a people on that Saturday afternoon in November, at the FNB Stadium, God says very clearly that the following will take place:

The Lord will be zealous for His Land. He will pity His People. He will send us food. We shall be content. We will no longer be a reproach among the nations.

–  Joel 2:18-19

THERE IS NO CHARGE, ENTRANCE IS FREE. Tickets to be collected at Computicket, on a first come first serve basis.

Please fast and pray for this “nation changer ” because, like never before, we need Jesus now.

God Bless, Angus and Jill.
