An Encounter with Evil on a South African Farm on 5 December 2018
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2018

Children of God in a Crooked and Depraved Generation

An Encounter with Evil on a South African farm on 5 December 2018.

Alan Lester

My feet trod swiftly in my trusty fifteen-year-old Rockys1 along the long two-track driveway, away from our friends’ farm. I stumbled from time to time because it was difficult to see the hollowed surface in the dark. A cool wind contoured my face as I looked toward the distant lights of the neighbouring farm. As I walked, I wondered how I would summon the attention of the neighbours in their home on the other side of their high gate and barbed-wire fence. The events of the past few hours were still surreal in my mind. Earlier that evening I had closed my bedroom curtains in preparation to visit our neighbours. The thought of our vulnerability crossed my mind. Not consoled by the unrealistic idea that we would never become victims of a farm attack, I thought to myself that it is most likely a matter of when and not if.

Having closed the curtains, I gathered my guitar, music files, tablet and Bible and left the house with my two daughters. My father was ready to pick us up at our driveway gate, and we were off. For many years we have enjoyed our neighbours’ hospitality on Wednesday evenings for Christian fellowship. Arriving in the early evening, we sat outside their home on the patio. The tiled patio has a short wall around it, punctuated by an equally short pedestrian gate that leads out onto a sloping lawn. On top of the patio wall there is a row of quite large pot-plants.

It was a beautiful evening. Our excellent hosts put on a light meal for us and some home-made nectarine juice. We thoroughly enjoyed it, as well as the relaxed, friendly conversation around the table afterwards to the light of a few citronella candles as darkness gently fell. My elder daughter took some beautiful photos of the small flames dancing against the African night sky. Peace.

While still looking at one of my daughter’s photos, a sudden sound startled us. It sounded something like cattle that had escaped from an enclosure and they were now rushing past the patio on the lawn. A loud thud startled us as one of the large pot-plants fell off the wall and onto the paving outside of the patio. Our eyes all strained into the darkness for a few seconds as we tried to make sense of the sounds we were hearing.

Then they appeared. Men dressed in black, wearing balaclavas, some with 9mm pistols in their hands.

You struggle with fear. Agreed, some people do have a more fearful disposition. But as a Christian, an entirely different phenomenon is in force. God the Holy Spirit both lives in your and works in you to change you! With such power at work in...

Fearing People
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 05, 2018
Posted by: GraceUnlimited | more..
Fearing people and trusting God are incompatible. The fear of people is a false trust. It says that if people think I'm unsuccessful, then I am unsuccessful. That is why people fear gossip so much. It strikes at their God. Fear manifests in both...

The Value of Wisdom
MONDAY, JULY 30, 2018
Posted by: GraceUnlimited | more..
Wisdom is the key to a godly and productive life. Solomon, whose net worth would dwarf the rich men of the modern world, claims that wisdom is worth more than wealth. Knowing how to get it is therefore critical. Our greatest obstacle to developing...

Introduction to Proverbs
MONDAY, JULY 23, 2018
Posted by: GraceUnlimited | more..
God wants you to know wisdom and to understand insight. This is necessary because people are automatically geared to folly. Wisdom, in Proverbs, is the ability to implement what you know to be right. To do this is to make progress in life easier....

How to Perish Beggarly Rich
MONDAY, JULY 09, 2018
Posted by: GraceUnlimited | more..
There is something in the human heart that simply won't accept that it is as bad as God says it is, and that they need God's salvation as much as they do. Even Jesus' disciples had a hard time understanding this. Jesus is exalting people who are...

Will Jesus Return?
MONDAY, JUNE 04, 2018

Two valuable truths regarding Jesus' return: We should expect a delay. We should be concerned about overemphasizing Jesus' return to the point where it leads us into error. The problem today, however, is that the world is sleeping. Many Christians...

Jesus the Judge
MONDAY, MAY 28, 2018
Posted by: GraceUnlimited | more..
The dread of facing a magistrate when you are guilty, doesn't seem to last when you are free. This seems to be the case when people think about the coming judgement of Christ. No dread. No concern. No change in life. Even in a lesser tragedy,...
