The missionary, The Gospel and True Doctrine.

I have published the 5th Essay in the Series of planned essays.

In this essay I contemplate the reasons why things are moving so fast in the direction of deconstructing KSB. The new leadership is isolating the core KSB entity more and more. It seems there is a intention to rid themselves of any “questioning voice” and so to retain their covert actions undetected. So, from what I hear and could corroborate they have shunned Friedel Stegen. Some European branches have distanced themselves from KSB South Africa and the European KSB websites have been taken down from the World Wide Web. Some branches of KSB South Africa like Schulzendal and Claridge are in dire straits and neglect.

The current group of leaders have yet to see their folly!

Comments.

With my blog there is a “Comments” section allowing for readers to write comments which, when approved, is seen by all. It is however to me important that we do keep in mind we are writing within a public forum and therefore we should not use abusive language. I am sure one is able to express one-self strongly without using abusive language or derogatory statements.

Secondly I would like to say that the comment section is an open forum. It represents the opinions, views or arguments of the individual writing and not mine! I would like to have every comment approved for reading by others, whether positive or negative concerning comments on content in the blog.

Kindly then, let us be civil, decent and non-abusive in our comments.

Lies! Lies! Lies! Lies!

Sometimes I just sit back and contemplate the situation at our beloved Mission. Then, at times, I am simply overcome by what I have seen and experienced. Allow me to highlight just two things.

The leaders at Mission Kwasizabantu have lied deliberately, intentionally and without remorse to the Church of Jesus Christ! In fact they have lied to the head of the church, Jesus Christ! Secondly, the coworkers have been supporting the liars without calling them to repentance and admonishing the leaders to confess, tell the truth and make restitution. The magnitude of the implication of these two things leaves one in total and perplexing spiritual bewilderment. One cannot comprehend that spiritual leaders who have preached and spoken to multitudes are capable of lying to the church of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, it is unfathomable to say the least, to even imagine that those who have been entrusted with the souls of God’s people can fall into such shocking conduct and even as if without a godly conscience cover up the sin to the detriment of God’s Word and the so called 1966 revival. What an utter shame! It is true; not the world but the Christians themselves destroy God’s Name in this world and make Him the laughing stock of the liberal and heathen alike!

The leaders at the Mission need to understand and acknowledge they have become undone (Isa. 6:5). This is a favourite verse that uncle Erlo loved to preach about. So did others. They need to realize they are sick and need a Physician (Luke 5:3). They should confess their sin openly as they have sinned openly and lied openly as a group (Num.5: 5; Prov. 28:13). The Word has to produce a deep hatred for sin (Psa. 97:10). But this is all old news is it not? Why have they gone against it? Why did they deny and are they perpetually denying the very substance of the Word preached to the congregations of KSB? Why focus on the “sin” of uncle Friedel when the Bible teaches that your own sin is the deciding factor. Unless of course they are hiding there beloved “money” sin behind the denial and silence thereof and the persecution of others calling them out. Surely, the KSB preachers who claim to be expositors of God’s Word must be able to see their sin as even so many others have exposed it to them. But perhaps the “teaching of Balaam” and the “spirit of Jezebel” have become so entrenched in their hearts that they can neither hear nor see their own sin and carry many others with them into the abyss of destruction. The great enigma of course is the regulated silence and covert effort of the European leaders in this matter. Whilst they try to solve this below the surface the leaders at KSB RSA comprehensively and decisively alienate them. It is indeed pitiful to see how they struggle, as do many hundreds of coworkers and congregants, to find a sure footing to repudiate what is happening.

There is no acknowledged human leader above the leadership of KSB left to call them to repentance for they have all utterly lied, from the top down! The only authority left above them is Jesus Christ the Lord, and even He, with all great respect due to Him, seems helpless to get them to confess their sin as they have hardened their hearts beyond the prompting of God the Holy Spirit. Their lies include inter alia the following to cover the embezzlement of millions of Rands. They said:

  • That the Dutch queen will refund the millions of misappropriated funds as it was used to return in secret the bodies of murdered Dutch subjects to the Netherlands;
  • That 24 Dutch murdered workers were recovered from a sunken container in the Zambezi River and the Dutch government requested KSB to be involved;
  • That 28 security personnel were killed along the N3 when on their way to Mission Kwasizabantu to escort Thofosi to Johannesburg to meet with a judge Joffe;
  • That the embezzled funds were needed to support a politician who did something wrong;
  • That the money was used to pay the bail application costs of umpakhathi individuals who came for help to the Mission;
  • That the money was used to invest in a hedge fund to obtain greater profits than usual;
  • That uncle Friedel is against uncle Erlo and Mission Kwasizabantu;
  • That uncle Friedel is the cause that Europe is breaking away from Mission Kwasizabantu South Africa;
  • That the millions of Rands are given to judge Joffe to prosecute then president Zuma in the International Criminal Court in The Hague;
  • That there is nothing medically wrong with uncle Erlo. He is perfectly normal, capable and preaching the same as in the beginning of the 1966 revival;
  • That the revival now is stronger than the 1966 revival with more souls coming to the Lord, more healings, more miracles and wonders taking place;
  • Doing and saying what uncle Erlo said and then denying that it had been said even when a recording is produced.
  • The trip to the Netherlands to see the Dutch queen.

Well, what more can one say? Where are the brothers and sisters who will speak out with me that “enough is enough?” Where are the leaders who have stood before the KSB congregations and taught them God’s Word, repudiated them in the name of God, chastised them under the guidance of God the Holy Spirit and counseled them in the wisdom of God’s Word? And now these leaders can’t even stand up openly and publicly to the lies and atrocities of their colleagues!

What a shame!

May God in His love have mercy on us all. What a disappointment must we, His servants, be to Him.

Apologetic!

Apologetics (from Greek ἀπολογία, “speaking in defense”) is the religious discipline of defending religious doctrines through systematic argumentation and discourse. Early Christian writers (c. 120–220) who defended their beliefs against critics and recommended their faith to outsiders were called Christian apologists.

Apologetics is a great void at KSB. They have not one apologetic to defend what they believe. Therefore anyone who criticizes the KSB way and doctrine is mercilessly hunted and jubilantly “shot” down into hell’s flames. In the past month or two I have been condemned to hell, we have been threatened with violence and even received a death threat. I have been told to stop my nonsense, to stop writing against the Mission, that I am disrespectful to my Christian brothers at KSB, that what I write against the brothers at KSB is disgusting and that my attitude to the Mission’s leaders is disrespectful and false. I have been taken to task in Sunday Sermons, by phone, emails, WhattsApp messages, text messages, directly and indirectly through gossip. I have been told to leave everything to God who will defend Himself. However, whilst I have been attacked in my person, not one of the issues others and I have brought into the open has been addressed.

But, you are barking up the wrong tree brethren! I am not worthy of all your effort to discredit me. I am but a sinner dependent on Christ’s mercy as much as you are. I am but one voice speaking out against you at KSB. And instead of attacking others and me you should rather try and defend your teachings, doctrines and conduct. Or at least try to defend your sin. Speak the truth! There is no attack on you personally, don’t you see and understand! The apostle Paul did not keep quiet but spoke out against the atrocities of his brothers in Christ in Corinth, Galatia and Colossae! Paul even names the brothers and sisters by name. Peter, in Acts, did not spare the brothers and sisters in Christ as he declared their sins openly during a church service. Jude does not beat about the bush either, does he? Then what on earth makes you brethren at KSB so special that no one dare speak out against your atrocities? When Paul and others went to the apostles (Acts 15), the apostles and the Holy Spirit granted them counsel. Should you not have done the same when the brethren from Europe came to speak their heart to you rather than dishonoring their effort as being against uncle Erlo and the Revival? Actually, they have expressed concerns only about you, the current “management” group!

I spoke against your conduct and skewed doctrine – you shunned me!

Uncle Friedel confronted you through his silence – you shunned him!

The European leaders have in great effort spoken and written to you – you have shunned them!

I have quoted the Word of God (Corinthians, Galatians, Jude) to you – you shunned the Word of God too.

Be aware! Perhaps, you are not far from showing the Lord Jesus the door also!

During last Thursday’s meeting at KSB, if all the disclosures from the meeting are to believed, you painstakingly attacked uncle Friedel and the brothers in Europe as being against uncle Erlo and the Revival. Strange how you may attack other brothers and sisters, even mistreat a father of the Mission, but would not grant the same privilege to others to criticize yourselves at KSB RSA.

You regard yourselves to be filled with God the Spirit over and against those apposing you yet your conduct is so amazingly nonspiritual and unbiblical.

Does it not say something to you when brothers and sisters who have been with you for up to 45 years leave KSB not to return?

I say all of this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to discern what you are doing to KSB?

Now, my dear brothers and sisters at KSB let us recognize the real problem causing the current havoc at the Mission. You are not living up to the standard you have set to others as to be the biblical, holy and godly standards for all followers of Christ. You as leaders of the Mission, coworkers and preachers of God’s Gospel of Jesus Christ have been lying to the church. You have misappropriated millions of Rands of God’s money, you have covered the most heinous sexual misconduct of coworkers and kept them in their positions, you have taken care of yourselves at the cost of God’s people financially and you have oppressed God’s people through context driven theology rather than applying God’s Word diligently to all in the Spirit.

Above all, you are no less than the Pharisees and Scribes who stood against the Lord Jesus when He walked this earth. You proclaim the form of godliness, but the Power thereof, you have denied, as you have become the power and the glory of KSB yourselves and has shunned everyone who warns you of your ungodly conduct and attitude.

“The one who conceals his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them will find mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13. CSB)

Immoral Followers

I have heard terrible things about some of you. In fact, you are behaving worse than unbelievers. A man is immoral with his own daughter and others are sexually immoral with virgins or a brother’s wife. You are proud, when you ought to feel bad enough to chase away anyone who acts like this.

I am with you only in my thoughts. But in the name of our Lord Jesus I have already judged these men, as though I were with you in person. So when you meet together and the power of the Lord Jesus is with you, I will be there too. You must then hand these men over to Satan. Their bodies will be destroyed, but their spirit will be saved when the Lord Jesus returns.

Stop being proud! Don’t you know how a little yeast can spread through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast! Then you will be like fresh bread made without yeast, and this is what you are. Our Passover lamb is Christ, who has already been sacrificed. So don’t celebrate the festival by being evil and sinful, which is like serving bread made with yeast. Be pure and truthful and celebrate by using bread made without yeast.

In my other letter I told you not to have anything to do with immoral people. But I wasn’t talking about the people of this world. You would have to leave this world to get away from everyone who is immoral or greedy or who cheats or worships idols. I was talking about your own people who are immoral or greedy or worship idols or curse others or get drunk or cheat. Don’t even eat with them! Why should I judge outsiders? Aren’t we supposed to judge only church members? God judges everyone else. The Scriptures say, “Chase away any of your own people who are evil.” (1 Corinthians 1. CEV)

Taking Each Other to Court

When one of you has a complaint against another, do you take your complaint to a court of sinners? Or do you take it to God’s people? Don’t you know that God’s people will judge the world? And if you are going to judge the world, can’t you settle small problems? Don’t you know we will judge angels? And if this is so, we can surely judge everyday matters. Why do you take everyday complaints to judges who are not respected by the church? I say this to your shame. Aren’t any of you wise enough to act as a judge between one follower and another? Why should one of you take another to be tried by unbelievers?

When one of you takes another to court, all of you lose. It would be better to let yourselves be cheated and robbed. But instead, you cheat and rob other followers. Don’t you know that evil people won’t have a share in the blessings of God’s kingdom? Don’t fool yourselves! No one who is immoral or worships idols or is unfaithful in marriage or is a pervert or behaves like a homosexual will share in God’s kingdom. Neither will any thief or greedy person or drunkard or anyone who curses and cheats others. Some of you used to be like that. But now the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of God’s Spirit have washed you and made you holy and acceptable to God. (1 Corinthians 6.CEV)

Help Each Other

My friends, you who are spiritual. If someone is trapped in sin, you should gently lead that person back to the right path. But watch out, and don’t be tempted yourself. You obey the law of Christ when you offer each other a helping hand. If you think you are better than others, when you really aren’t, you are wrong. You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself! You will harvest what you plant. If you follow your selfish desires, you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life. Don’t get tired of helping others. You will be rewarded when the time is right, if you don’t give up. We should help people whenever we can, especially if they are followers of the Lord. (Galatians 6. CEV)(Italics are mine.)

In the words of Jude.

Greetings.

 To the brethren at Mission Kwasizabantu.

(From Peet, a servant of Jesus Christ and your brother in Christ.)

To all who are chosen and loved by God the Father and are kept safe by Jesus Christ.

I pray that God will greatly bless you with mercy, peace, and love!

False Teachers

My dear friends, I really wanted to write you about God’s saving power at work in our lives. But instead, I must write and ask you to defend the faith that God has once for all given to his people. Some godless people have come forward among you and are saying, “God treats us much better than we deserve, and so it is all right to be immoral.” They even deny we must obey Jesus Christ as our only Master and Lord. But long ago the Scriptures warned that these godless people were doomed.

Don’t forget what happened to those people the Lord rescued from Egypt. Some of them did not have faith, and he later destroyed them. You also know about the angels who didn’t do their work and left their proper places. God chained them with everlasting chains and is now keeping them in dark pits until the great day of judgment.  We should also be warned by what happened to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the nearby towns. Their people became immoral and committed all sorts of sexual sins. Then God made an example of them and punished them with eternal fire.

The people I am talking about are behaving just like those dreamers who destroyed their own bodies. They reject all authority and insult angels. Even Michael, the chief angel, didn’t dare to insult the devil, when the two of them were arguing about the body of Moses. All Michael said was, “The Lord will punish you!”

But these people insult powers they don’t know anything about. They are like senseless animals that end up getting destroyed, because they live only by their feelings. Now they are in for real trouble. They have followed Cain’s example and have made the same mistake that Balaam did by caring only for money. They have also rebelled against God, just as Korah did. Because of all this, they will be destroyed.

These people are filthy minded, and by their shameful and selfish actions they spoil the meals you eat together. They are like clouds blown along by the wind, but never bringing any rain. They are like leafless trees, uprooted and dead, and unable to produce fruit. Their shameful deeds show up like foam on wild ocean waves. They are like wandering stars forever doomed to the darkest pits of hell.

Enoch was the seventh person after Adam, and he was talking about these people when he said:

Look! The Lord is coming with thousands and thousands of holy angels to judge everyone. He will punish all those ungodly people for all the evil things they have done. The Lord will surely punish those ungodly sinners for every evil thing they have ever said about him. These people grumble and complain and live by their own selfish desires. They brag about themselves and flatter others to get what they want.

More Warnings

My dear friends, remember the warning you were given by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They told you that near the end of time, selfish and godless people would start making fun of God. And now these people are already making you turn against each other. They think only about this life, and they don’t have God’s Spirit.

Dear friends, keep building on the foundation of your most holy faith, as the Holy Spirit helps you to pray. And keep in step with God’s love, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to show how kind he is by giving you eternal life. Be helpful to all who may have doubts. Rescue any who need to be saved, as you would rescue someone from a fire. Then with fear in your own hearts, have mercy on everyone who needs it. But hate even the clothes of those who have been made dirty by their filthy deeds.

Final Prayer

Offer praise to God our Savior because of our Lord Jesus Christ! Only God can keep you from falling and make you pure and joyful in his glorious presence. Before time began and now and forever, God is worthy of glory, honor, power, and authority.

Amen.

(Jude. CEV.)

Living at Mission Kwasizabantu – 1994 – 2018.

I have added my third essay.

I am looking back at the time being at KSB and the things that occurred that influenced my spiritual walk with God. The “cross roads and circumstances” that impacted my walk to spiritual maturity.

God is good. We just have to remember that truth in all facets of our lives.

Chapter 11 & Epilogue

I have published the last two chapters of “my book”. I have emptied my heart and all is done now in writing the book.

I thank God in this time that He kept me focused on what I experienced as His will for me in this. I have found peace for my soul in this journey with the book. Jeremiah 6: 16 reminds me of the goodness to go God’s way: Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths of the Lord; and see what is the good way, and walk in it, and ye shall find purification for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in them. (Septuagint translation)

I pray that eventually all will find this peace and purification in Christ, the way of God for mankind and especially for all of us involved with KSB. Only the Truth, the everlasting Truth of God in Christ has the power to set us free. The moment we compromise the Truth, we are in bondage to Satan. But, His truth sets us free, every time we turn back to the Truth.

To God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit belongs all glory and thankfulness.

For ever and ever!

Soli Deo gloria!
