It’s time

2017-03-22 06:03

Sir

A LITTLE while ago a video clip was sent to me. In it, a middle-aged farmer, driving his bakkie, pleaded with the nation to come before the Lord Jesus and ask Him to intervene in our country.

The farmer acknowledged how Our Father had sent rain when we had prayed for rain - in abundance. He now was asking us to come together to pray for peace in our country.

He spoke in Afrikaans, then stopped, and said in English: “Uncle Angus, we are waiting for you. Say the word and we will come.”

The farmer’s clip went viral … I was very challenged by his passionate plea and could not shake it off. Early the next morning, while going for a run, I felt the Holy Spirit speak two things into my heart - “It’s Time” and “One million people.”

I posted these two words on our social media sites. Within a few hours, thousands upon thousands of positive responses were made from all over the country.

Our nation is in a very troubled time and people are desperate for change. ’

A change only our Lord Jesus Christ can bring. We are calling for a national day of prayer - It’s Time - on 22 April in the Bloemfontein area.

The farmers in the Bloemfontein area have offered us approximately 800ha of farm land, four kilometres outside the city centre. Why Bloemfontein?
This is the centre, or the heart of the nation. And we are asking God to change the heart of our beloved nation, beginning with our own hearts.

The purpose of this meeting will be to call upon the Lord Jesus Christ. We want to see an end to the senseless murder, rape, corruption and total disregard of human life in which every man is a law unto himself.

We are calling 1 000 000 to attend, from every race group, every denomination and every walk of life, men, women and children. Entrance is free, no tickets will be sold, and no collections will be taken at the event.

Our scripture for this event is found in James 5:16 (NKJV): “Confess your trespasses[a] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

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.
