Dear Friends

 

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

 

The Power of Prayer

In 1982, I heard Brother Andrew present a bold prayer project at Hospital Christian Fellowship: “We are going to launch a Seven-Year Jericho Prayer March to bring down the Iron Curtain and open up Russia and Eastern Europe to the Gospel!” At the time, I remember being somewhat bewildered. I had been to the Berlin Wall and seen the Iron Curtain. Like many others in the 1980s, I was convinced that the Iron Curtain was a permanent fact of life and that it would be up until Jesus returned. However, seven years later, in 1989, we saw the culminative effect of that concentrated focus of persistent prayer, as the Berlin Wall came down and the Iron Curtain collapsed and all of Eastern Europe and Russia were opened up for freedom of religion! “If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you.” John 15:7

 

In Romania I was told how the persecuted church was able to recognise true believers and identify informers planted by the communist government: “A real Christian loves God! A real Christian loves to read the Bible! A real Christian loves to pray! A real Christian hates sin!” Then he added: “We do not count our members by how many attend the Sunday service, but by who attends the Bible study and prayer meeting.” Join us tonight as we upload our latest From the Frontline podcast on www.FrontlineMissionSA.org, available on our http://fromthefrontline.podbean.com/ from 21:00 tonight, Tuesday, 18 September.

 

Resisting the Second Phase of the Revolution

Please join us Thursday, 20 September at 19:00 for tea and fellowship and at 19:30 for a presentation on understanding how Marxists subvert churches and society and what we can practically do to resist and defeat communist subversion. Is there hope for South Africa? How can we, as Christians, effectively resist, expose, undermine and defeat the Marxist strategies and tactics for the Second Phase of the Revolution? “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1

 

Livingstone Fellowship

This Sunday, 23 September at 11:00, our Livingstone Fellowship service will continue with our Bible Survey on Philemon. This will be followed with a Bring and Share Fellowship lunch, as I am soon to depart for an overseas Mission. The next Livingstone Fellowship service after this Sunday, will be 21 October, when God willing, I intend to deal with the Bible Survey on Hebrews.

 

Home Education Open Day Workshop

Next week, Wednesday, 26 September, we will be hosting another Home Education Open Day Workshop, focussed on early 20th century South African History, primarily on the First and Second Anglo Boer Wars and character studies on President Marthinus Steyn of the Orange Free State, Danie Theron – Founder of the Reconnaissance Commander, General Christiaan De Wet, General Koos de la Rey – The Lion of the Western Transvaal, Emily Hobhouse and General James Barry Hertzog. I will be giving presentations, aimed at parents and older teenagers, on these important events and personalities in our boardroom, while Emma and other Frontline workers will run a parallel interactive children’s programme, which will include art and crafts on South African History.

 

The workshops will be from 09:00 to 16:00. Please R.S.V.P. to [email protected], or phone 021-689-4480 to confirm your participation. Lunch, tea, coffee, juice, refreshments and art supplies will be provided. Each participant is requested to contribute R30 to help us cover these costs.

If you are able to participate in the next International Life Chain, Sunday, 7 October, it will be held at Buitengracht Street, Cape Town from 14:00 to 16:00. For more information, visit www.christianaction.org.za. “Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die.” Proverbs 31:8
