Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
Dark clouds are looming over South Africa.
Naturally, one can just close one’s eyes in order not to see the dark clouds, but it does not take away the gloom lurking on the horizon.
Dark clouds of land expropriation without compensation, of farm murders, of hideous atrocities, of an economy that threatens to fall, and certainly dark clouds of an uncertain future of the country.
Most Afrikaner Boere are aware of the threat in the near future, but we choose to avoid the subject and choose to rather not talk about it.
Those who do talk about it, often do so by pointing the finger to the government and/or enemy, but without making any real difference.
The trouble with the dark clouds, (and with those who close their eyes,) is that with long enough exposure, the darkness starts to enter into one’s heart.
Of course are there some enlightenment in the church with good company and temporary relief with entertainment and other ventures, but the general consensus remains that the sun does not shine very bright upon the white people of South Africa, and we see the consequences thereof in our work, our homes, in our younger generation and in our children.
Now to understand the principle is not difficult.
When it is dark, just switch the light on! How do we do it?
We are the light in this world. If you ever doubt that, take your Bible and read it over and over, until your light is turned on also, and you yourself reflect the glory of God, in spite of the circumstances we are facing.
The Prophet Isaiah speaks of loosening the bonds of wickedness (not the wickedness of the enemy but of ourselves in our own lives) that you share your food with those who are hungry and provide shelter to those who do not have a roof over their heads.
More than that, that you do not turn your face away from the need of your own flesh and blood.
I myself understand if one does not necessarily feel called to help the man in the street, but I assure you, there are enough poor whites in squatter camps for each of us, to get involved in, anywhere on however a small scale.
“Yes, but they do not want to work” have I often heard the argument.
Your own light can break through
Well here’s the thing; It’s not for them you do it. It is so that your own light can break through and allow you to shine in a world where it is really needed.
The principle remains firm and the Word of God is absolutely true. In this time in which we live, it is more important than ever to cleanse our hearts, get our attitudes right, and shine like never before.
There are just too many Afrikaner Boere who rely on us to shine and show the way forward.
This country needs you to shine. Every day.
Not for the enemy. For your own people.
And don’t think it’s far from you. The Word of God is very close to you and not difficult to do.
You will be amazed at what a good impression of hope and power we can make if we obey our Father in Heaven.
The Lord bless you and the Lord is with you. Be safe and fight the good fight!
