Matthew 16:24-26
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
Are Christians still able to deny themselves, their desire to be popular, to blend in, to nto be criticized, to be seen as modern, tolerant? Are they ashamed of the gospel, the fundamental truth, are they ashamed to conserve the faith and stand up for ancient truth?
Worldwide Christians have flirted with tolerance of evil just to avoid being called conservative.


It is with great sadness that we are witnessing terror attacks, sexual assaults of women and children, and violence against innocent people in Europe. People who came as refugees and received a warm and generous welcome seem to hate these Christian nations and act not with gratefulness but with the demeanour of new bosses. Christianity is being replaced by tolerance of the intolerable. Child marriages and honour killings are being excused with cultural differences. The European people are confused. Why aren’t their leaders standing up for them and protecting them like they are supposed to? When a nation’s leaders deny the Lord Jesus in order to appease business partners and other agendas, it will have spiritual repercussions. When Christians don’t deny themselves anymore for the sake of the cross, they might lose their very soul.

Thanks Anita Giovannoni for a great Foreword

We are very grateful for the kind words Anita Giovannoni of Crocus ministries Johannesburg had to say about our new book, The Powerful Impact of a Spirit Led Life.

Anita writes in her Foreword:

“It has been so refreshing to read this publication. Andries and Christiane have managed to clearly explain how the Holy Spirit works within us, in the process clearing up many misconceptions about how God speaks. It is wonderful to have each chapter backed with personal testimonies to cement each gift. This gives us such a clear view of how God works with and through the authors, and potentially with all of us. Andries’s prophetic gift is certainly very sharp. ribbonTo be honest, this book has spurred me on to hear clearer, move quicker and be more useful to the Holy Spirit.

Having known Andries for many years I know that he is always on “spiritual duty”. He evangelizes everywhere and uses his gifts constantly to bring people the realness of the Holy Spirit. This book will minister to you through the pages. Be expectant for God to speak as you read. The gifts of the Holy Spirit have been explained very clearly and simple. You will begin to feel an excitement for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, so be prepared. As you go through the pages and chapters you will find your own gifts being stirred. That is the purpose of a prophetic book.

I have great admiration for Andries as a Pastor and a Prophet. It is not easy to be both but he manages so well. It comes through clearly in the pages of the book. He knows when to be pastoral and when to put on the prophets mantle. This book was certainly written by the prophet and the message is clear and concise.


Anita Giovannoni from Crocus Ministries

It has been such a blessing to know Andries, Christiane and their two beautiful sons, truly a family gifted and blessed. Thank you for your friendship.

The Powerful Impact of a Spirit Led Life

What's up at church

Yippeh! We are excited to announce that in between raising two young and very busy sons, pastoring a church, managing a preschool and doing various charity work, we were finally able to complete our first book!

This book is born out of the amazing things we have experienced in our daily walk with God in a nation that has many challenges. With so much crime and no real social security, we need to hear God’s voice so much more.

God talks, wants to warn and advise and encourage you! Dreams, visions, the bible, prophetic insight popping up in your spirit when you pray, we talk about how you can fine tune into God’s voice.

This book contains more than 60 exciting stories and events in our lives where God spoke things we couldn’t possibly know through human understanding alone, and how God uses a sensitive believer to impact the lives…

Leave their cities and shake the dust of your feet. NOW.

Do not be blind to the aggressive agenda of the Islamic nations to wipe out any other faith. The government of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, fell overnight to the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, also called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Mosul’s panic-stricken Christians, along with many others, are now fleeing en masse to the rural Nineveh Plain, according to the Vatican publication Fides. The border crossings into Kurdistan, too, are jammed with the cars of the estimated 150,000 desperate escapees.

The population, particularly its Christian community, has much to fear. The ruthlessness of ISIS, an offshoot of al-Qaeda, has been legendary. Its beheadings, crucifixions, and other atrocities against Christians and everyone else who fails to conform to its vision of a caliphate have been on full display earlier this year, in Syria.

Under Sharia law, any women and child that has been raped, can be stoned to death. A woman leaving her house unaccompanied by her owner can be thrown into prison for attempted adultery.

If you want to know first hand about the life of women in a Sharia-ruled nation, please read Saiera – Despair and Defiance behind the Burqa by Ahmadullah Rahmani  which is available for Kindle for under 1$.

Since 2003, Iraq’s Christian community has suffered intense religious persecution on top of the effects of the conflict and, as a result, it’s shrunk by well over 50 percent.

There is a time coming where the Lord is saying to His people in the Middle East:

Jeremiah 50: 8“Wander away from the midst of Babylon And go forth from the land of the Chaldeans; Be also like male goats at the head of the flock. ”

Jeremiah 51:6
“Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the LORD’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves. ”

Now where is the Babylonian kingdom?

Islam is rising up strongly against Christians. And although it was right and important to be a testimony to their nations, the time has come to pack up and LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. I am calling to all Christian organisations and leaders to open their nations and create refuges for Christians fleeing from Islamic nations. Staying will be a sure death sentence. And God is planning to judge these nations for their evil deeds.

A few days ago, a brave Sudanese lady, Meriam Ibrahim, gave birth to a baby girl in prison, with her feet in chains. She was left in the birth blood for 2 days. She had her under 2 year old child with her in prison. She is on death row, sentenced to 100 lashes before being hanged, because of being a Christian. A family relative betrayed her. Her story is going around the world, while hundreds of Christian ladies endure the exact same fate in prisons all over Islamic nations.

With this in mind, listen to Jesus prophecying about the end times:

Matthew 24 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—

16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak.

19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 

20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.

22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.


23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time. 26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.

29 “Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earthwill mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

I do not hear Jesus say: when the nations start persecuting you, stay in your homes. He says to not even fetch the coat. Run.

I am urging the church in the Middle East and the Islamic nations to make swift plans to evacuate out of the nations that have stood up against the Lord Jesus.

I am calling to churches in free nations to start aggressively negotiating for the lives of imprisoned Christians and to collect funds to have them immigrate to Christian colleges as learners, to farms as workers, do whatever it takes to get Visas for your brothers and sisters. When Jesus says He was in prison, He did not mean the murderer, but He meant His brothers and sisters in chains. If we do not help them, we do not help Jesus.

If you live in any of these nations that have openly declared war on Jesus, get out, NOW.

(If you are interested in a story of an Afghan woman in a repressive society dominated by men I recommend Saiera – Despair and Defiance behind the Burqa The fate experienced by Saiera, which is unfortunately typical for Afghanistan and other countries dominated by Islam, shows how far women in this culture are removed from equal rights and fair treatment.

The Afghan author Ahmadullah Rahmani dedicates this book to all women who are humiliated, oppressed and tortured and have no opportunity to lead a life of dignity. It is available on amazon for kindle for only $1. A worth while read)
