Signs point to the end

Shadrack Matsela, Bloemfontein:

No one will deny the fact that in South Africa we seem to be nearing the end of the world.

It is clear that the signs of nearing the end of the world are upon us here in South Africa, taking into consideration the fact that the things which happened and are happening around the world, happen in South Africa presently.

This points to the prophecy in the Bible in the Book of Matthew 24:1: “When we see these things happening, we should notice that the end of everything has arrived.”

The Bible is the best and most important available history book in the world and prophecies bear testimony to this.

A case in point with reference to my take relates to the justice system or Justice Department’s ability. People, the Justice Department or justice system in South Africa cannot be trusted.

It cannot be trusted as long as those who are in power and have the authority do not uphold, and are not being held accountable to the constitution of this country.

Once those in power are involved in corrupt activities and are never prosecuted, it is clear the justice system in a country is in danger.

After the theft of documents from the Department of Justice, no arrest has been made; that should be worrying.

Again, a similar incident took place at the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and no arrests have been made either.

Before these two cases, there was a cash heist at the O.R. Tambo Airport, in which a lot of money was taken and only three suspects arrested.

The justice system in this country will be, or remains, in danger because of the level of corruption; the biggest ever influencers of corruption are those in high positions in government.

People around South Africa are complaining about files disappearing at police stations after cases are reported and opened, meaning there is no case.

Let us consider another recent incident in Limpopo, where people were robbed and women raped in their houses, but when calling the police to report, there were not enough vehicles to attend to the reported incident immediately.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are not safe in this country under the so-called democratic government.

I for one do not think we are supposed to call it democracy, but “demo­crisis”.

It cannot be de­mocracy if it is something that puts the lives of people of God in danger.

So this is truth, saying that we are living in the last days of the world, as whatever we see happening is ungodly.

It is also stated in the Bible that we should know that, regardless of whatever we see happening which is wrong, we are in the last days and at any time the trumpet shall sound.
