A prophecy fulfilled?

The book is back on the blog.

I have added the Prologue and Chapters 4, 5 & 6.

Please read the Prologue first before reading Chapters 4, 5 &6.

When God called me into His service that Sunday in1983, he gave me a text from His Word, Isaiah 42:1-9 to confirm His speaking into my life. I have taken this Word in faith as the calling for my life of service to Him and His people. Let me show you the text:

The Lord’s Servant

1 Here is my servant! I have made him strong. He is my chosen one;

I am pleased with him. I have given him my Spirit, and he will bring justice to the nations.

2 He won’t shout or yell or call out in the streets.

3 He won’t break off a bent reed or put out a dying flame,

but he will make sure that justice is done.

4 He won’t quit or give up until he brings justice

everywhere on earth, and people in foreign nations

long for his teaching.

5 I am the Lord God. I created the heavens

like an open tent above. I made the earth and everything

that grows on it. I am the source of life

for all who live on this earth, so listen to what I say.

6 I chose you to bring justice, and I am here at your side.

I selected you and sent you to bring light

and my promise of hope to the nations.

7 You will give sight to the blind; you will set prisoners free

from dark dungeons.

8 My name is the Lord! I won’t let idols or humans

share my glory and praise.

9 Everything has happened just as I said it would;

now I will announce what will happen next.

Any such Scripture is subjective to the one who receives it as an answer from God. Because this prophecy in Scripture refers to the Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour and the ultimate Servant! Yet in all humbleness this Word I accepted in faith as a confirmation of my calling into His ministry many years ago.

Through the years from 1983, many words in this Servant Song have been fulfilled in my life and ministry. I have written about it elsewhere on the blog. But there were specifics outstanding. Now it seems to me the whole of the Scripture, as it pertains to me by faith, is going in fulfillment. There is a closure implicated in the final fulfillment.

I have a deep sorrow for KSB. My heart breaks just thinking what might result from all of this. I am devastated for the harm that might come to the work of God that had been done in this world. I am crying before God for mercy and grace for all of us. The hardness of hearts and blindness of the spiritual eyes are most devastating in the work of God because it is the symptom of an elevated self, the deadly result of the enemy’s work among the people of God.

We wait upon God to  “announce what will happen next” (v9).

  1. Dear Oom Peet,

    This is Steve Geise. I don’t know if you remember us but we visited you at Claridge while Malimabe was there. My brother Philip sent me a link to your blog. I had known you were in Tulsa and we really wanted to come visit you but we never made it.

    I’ve been reading your book with sadness yet not really surprised. It seems inevitable that an organization will eventually get to the place where it’s rules and life style take precedents over Christ’s clear teachings. We have experienced it in our lives with organizations we have been part of and affiliated with.

    We are currently reading through Galatians and this was the very thing the Apostle was fighting against-works based religion.

    Thank you for writing your book. People are so satisfied in a comfortable religious setting. We trust God will use your book to awaken some to their need!

    We long to know more of Jesus in a daily reality! At this point we are basically alone. It seems difficult to find individuals who long for truth even when it’s inconvenient.

    God bless you. If you ever come back to America we would love to see you! We recently moved to Indiana.

    Greetings to your kind wife!

    Steve Geise
