Positioned in the Kingdom of God

July 9, 2018
This morning while sitting in the presence of Jesus, I was listening to the Lord as the Holy Spirit began to reveal things that were hidden, and speak very clearly about His purpose for our nation, South Africa and how He was bring things about in a way that would otherwise never have been possible. 

Holy Spirit began to talk about the state of our nation and revealed the plan of the enemy and all that he (Satan) was trying to bring about (The enemies plan remains to destroy that nation as a whole, but also to set a standard in motion that would be used as an example around the world). I saw how divided we had become as a people and how the Church has been infiltrated and used as a pawn in the hands of the current Government and how the ANC, along with the Unions, SACP, EFF and of late the DA have all turned to please their own agenda totally disregarding the people they say they serve and more than this, showing a total and blatant disregard for God and His divine purpose in this nation.

Our nation was not born out of hatred, but we quickly allowed ourselves to be caught up with a self-determination agenda and greed and never really consulted God on the matter. Even though we had put certain biblical principles in place, and so it is that today, now more than ever, we remain a divided people.

Even through all this, we as a people pressed on regardless, we had allowed ourselves to become caught up in the ideologies of man and without us really giving it a second thought, embraced the lies, making it our own. As a nation, we allowed ourselves to be control by a Government which created unforgettable and deep dividing lines (Apartheid).  During all this time, God never abandoned this country or her peoples and continued to ensure that His plan was on track and today we remain thankful for all those past and present that did sincerely seek His heart for direction.

Now more than ever before, we, and I am referring to the true Church of Jesus Christ (A people that belong to God, who are filled with the knowledge of His word) and not a religious institutionalized establishment that is recognized by the State as being the "church". Having said all this, the Holy Spirit began to show me how He has already positioned leaders in politics, business and the church that are pillars of support that have embraced the purpose of God and He will reveal himself in such a way through these people that many in and outside the Church we be taken by surprise.

The Lord said, not to resist what He has established and to pray for those in these positions and to support the work that God has called them to. Everything has been set in place. Everything has been prepared and God is about to reveal His hand in a unique and powerful way.

At this point, I would like to mention that God established the ACDP and its leadership as a pillar of support and even though the Church has not entirely recognised it, God said, "I will cause My people to see My glory and through this avenue, My word shall stand". It is with this in mind that Mark Labuschagne Ministries, along with the Church Arise Movement, wholeheartedly stands with, behind and next to the ACDP and its leaders as we truly believe this to be the Father's heart.



We support our business leaders and recognise the anointing on Church leadership throughout South Africa, men and women that God has positioned for a time such as this and we want to encourage you to seek the heart of God and to support those the Lord has positioned around the nation.

Lastly, the Lord clearly said, "I am calling My people, My church to stand on My word, to rise up and to follow My leading. The onslaught against My people continues unabated and I am calling My church to arise. to stand up, to awaken from her slumber and to seek My purpose in all things. As you have heard and seen, the intensity is increasing, the agenda of the enemy is to silence the truth, yet and in all this My people have become complacent and have stood ideally by and allowed the voices of the few to carry the burden of many. This is about to change...

Therefore instruct every true believer to call on My name (Calling: being a form of prayer, but is definitely audible. To call out, to cry unto, to invoke and to call on the name of the Lord in person). I also desire that every believing heart must seek after and follow the leading of My voice". 

Church, the world is in for a shock, for a time is coming and now is when the hand of the Lord will move across the face of the earth and the Truth that is Christ will be revealed on the land!

Let wisdom be your yardstick...

June 23, 2018
Before you make a move, it be rather wise that you plan. 

I found this statement to be so true on many and different occasions, I have found that it would be senseless to move into a new direction without weighing up the costs. How often we make plans without consulting God and then when things do not work out as we expected, we often find people blaming God or asking Him why. We all know that we cannot make an investment without doing due diligence and yet, so many people do. 

We need to remin...

South Africa, I am your new beginning

March 12, 2018
Isa 43: 19-21 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. 



While interceding and waiting on the Lord regarding the ongoing and developing situation our country, South Africa i...

Bear with me as I try to share what I feel He has been saying to me regarding this matter and I hope as you pray and meditate on it that it too will be a revelation which you can apply to your life.

See I am doing a New Thing

February 18, 2018
In Isa 43:18-20 we read "Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. "Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. "The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I have given waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My chosen people.…

Regarding the drought in Cape Town, South Africa

February 7, 2018
I can no longer be silent. People, especially and I am addressing the Church, are grabbing hold of any and everything they can right now and it is at this time that we are to warn God's people to be careful of false prophets, false doctrines and the false ideologies of man that would undermine the heart and purpose of God in the city.

God is NOT angry at Cape Town or it's people. His love and compassion goes beyond anything we could ever imagine or comprehend. Our Fathers heart is simply that ...

Stepping into the vision

January 1, 2018
We entered into 2018 in the presence of Jesus with such an expectancy in our hearts as we believe this year we will see us stepping into vision. 



We are believing that we will see our ministry expand into Zimbabwe this year in line with the dream that I had as we returned from Qatar. In the dream, I saw three trucks each with the word Faith, Love and Hope written on them... each individual truck would be used to distribute bibles, clothing and food in the much needed rural areas and in the cit...

Waiting for the manifestation of the vision

November 8, 2017
A number of years ago, God began speaking to me about all that He has in store for my future ministry and the instructions I received, also confirmed over time about the part I was to play in what He was about to do. However, as time went on, the seeming delay caused all sorts of questions and emotions to raise their heads up and I have subsequently found the more I entertained them, the fainter the vision became and almost like a mist, the dreams and visions began to fade away.

Hab 2:1-3 I wi...

I am defined by Christ

September 3, 2017
It is not a law that defines who I now am in Christ, but rather, Jesus Christ himself. He has become my Yardstick, the means for which I am now measured.

Man would have you believe that in order for you to live a holy life, there be certain rules and regulations that you and I should follow, for in doing so, the teaching be, that we would then be able to draw closer to Him. However, this is far from the truth. The bible tells us in Rom 1:17 herein lies the secret of the power of the Gospel; th...

His glory and his grace

August 11, 2017
Well we can continue to confidently declare the greatness of God in us and despite the things we face, our God is good.

There are many times that we look around us and wonder what on earth is going on, and when we make these things our focus, we find ourselves soon consumed by them, yet, when we look to Jesus, we see His glory unveiled in such an amazing way that the battles, the trials and the tribulation we go through no longer seems relevant.

I can declare with confidence that we walk in pea...
