A Book that truly changed my heart’s desire

1 Corinthians 2:4-5  And my word and my preaching were not with persuasive words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,  5  In order that your belief should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of Elohim.

1 Corinthians 12                            Very interesting

1 Thessalonians 1:5  Because our Good News did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Set-apart Spirit and in entire confirmation, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.

Signs shall follow that believe, for the unbeliever.  I do not look for signs or miracles, as I know the Almighty is powerful.  But only to give Elohim all the Glory, before those who do not believe of His power.

I am sharing the power of THE SET-APART SPIRIT , but I can’t without the man He used. Illustrations of the Power of Elohim have me in absolute AWE !!   … in the Book William shares how he was caught up with some dangerous trails, because of disobedience.  My desire is to share this book, not to impress.  I was expected to impress many …. I failed them miserably. If any one was under impressions and impressionist’s ventures, I was challenged and I refused. I am to this day hated for it. Because I would not submit to man’s fleshly appetite. THE ANOINTING BREAKS THE YOKE and I boast extremely in my YaHUaH’s Set-apart Spirit. In His love.

We are not seeing these testimonies today. Amongst the believers, for the unbelievers?

About 26 years ago, while attending seminars for hospital ministry, I met a very dear lady.  We were both attending the Baptist community church.  I am not a Baptist, I was never one for denominations.  I term myself as a believer.  One early morning, she met with me in the very warm and sunlit foyer of the church.  She said I have a book I would like you to read.  In my hand she placed this mysterious, true life testimony.  The cover had yellow and pale grey lines which definitely depicted the sun’s rays.  I marvelled at it, what a glorious introduction I thought, to the story that awaits to be read.

On that beautiful warm day, while I was driving on my way back to my home in Northriding, outside of Honeydew, South Africa, I was in deep thought about the life of a very obedient man.

Days later, I found a quiet hour to begin the journey of the author’s path with this very dear man of El.  Chapter after chapter, everything flowed so beautifully, not leaving out one moment of suspense.  The profound works of power of the of the Set-apart Spirit, in the life of a young Zulu herdsman, from Umkomaas South Coast, from Durban, South Africa, had me in awe of a wonderful El we serve.

Speechless, I put the book down and was moved with much tears.  The story I had read so far, kept me in deep thought throughout the following days.  I continued with the deep chapters of old, wonderful works just continued to unfold on the pages upon which my eyes were so intensely fixed.

When I read a book like this, it causes me to look inside, very deeply.  I have read books of how bibles were taken to the nations, where in the natural it all seemed so impossible.  Lives were very much on the death line.  Putting their lives in harm’s way for the people so hungry for His love.  Yet, it happened over and over.  I read a book of a prisoner in the holocaust camps, his daily labour was to clean out the filthy sewer.  In those criminal days with agony and pain, he continued.  He asked God to help him… God said, from now on focus on Me.  Day after day, he began to pray, praying for people to bend the knee.  God worked wonders in his life, that he did not smell the putrid smell of sewerage any longer.  An enormous ministry was birthed in that man.  When the war was over, God paid his way and he became one of the leaders of a wonderful ministry.  Many, many came to YaHUShA after hearing of his testimonies of his past.  What an Awesome El we serve.

I have read books about believers that hid their faith, because of fear of death.  They would meet in places by instruction with drawing codes in the sand, where to meet for the next meeting of worship and gathering.  I read a book about a man who was an intercessor.  His prayer ministry started in the coal mines of Wales.  He prayed for revival and they got just that.  Isn’t Yah an awesome El forever!

We need testimonies like these, not only to be blessed, but for one purpose alone, to surrender to His calling.  Don’t you want to be an instrument for Him?  O I hunger for it and I hope for it and wait on YaHUShA always.  Not my will El, but Your Will be done.

O Father I ask you to touch lives in a miraculous way, use us, use me, be it small or enormous.  No matter, it’s the heart.  He looks at the heart.

I want to finish telling you about this man’s story.  I continued to read the beautiful anointed works of The Ruach.  Wow!!!  What power.  I was speechless.  I could hardly talk, choked up, for hours after reading the chapters one by one.

“Take Your Glory Lord” –   I am praying that you will be blessed by this work of the Set-apart Spirit.

I finished the book, I sobbed my heart out, over and over and over.  Years ago we had a Zulu gentleman working for us.  He came to me while I was reading this book.  He said “My wife is struggling to fall pregnant.  We have been praying for years now.”  I looked at the desperate and helpless expression and I ached so much for him.  We prayed together and I told him to take her to the doctor and then to pray all the time, I told him God is faithful and He will answer your prayers and hear your cries.  He was a believer and said  “I will do.”  Months had gone by, she had fibroids in her uterus.  They are inoperable, but treated with medication.  A year later, he told me his wife was pregnant, I rejoiced with him and we gave thanks to God for His never-ceasing faithfulness and loving kindness.  They were blessed with a little boy.  Many years later he came to see me when I was visiting a friend.  When I saw him in the street, I ran out to him and asked  “How is that little boy of yours Mischak?”  “O he said, he keeps us so busy !”  He had gone through the furnace and Praise YaHUShA!   He sure did dance with Mischak.

Praised is the Name above all names.  HalleluYAH !    YaHUaH

Have we heard of testimonies today, that are a fulfillment of  …

John 14:12 – 17  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also.  And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.  13  “And whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son.  14  “If you ask whatever in My Name.  I shall do it.  15  “If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.”  16  “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever –   17  the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him.  But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you.


Luke 1:38 And Miryam said, “See the female servant of YaHUaH! Let it be to me according to your Word.”

Abba Father be it unto me, according to Your Word.

The Set-apart Spirit works in wonderous ways, I don’t understand them, but I am glad to be able to hear of the diffierent testimonies.  We shall overcome, by The Blood of The Lamb and the Word of our testimonies.

Revelation: 12:11  “And they overcame him because of the Blood of The Lamb, and because of the Word of their witness, and did not love their lives to the death.


I searched everywhere I possibly could, to find a copy priced reasonably.  I say that as our  ZAR – $  rates are very high.

I managed to get a used copy from Alibris.com    It took nearly 90 days to arrive, well worth the wait.  From USA to SA   It was in excellent condition.  The total cost including packaging and postage, was ZAR300.00  Try AbeBooks.com  Last night I searched the internet and found a few of used copies available that are in very good condition.  There are some used copies that have not been read, sadly.  I was shocked to find copies for ZAR1000.00  Beloved this is a story based in the history of Zululand, South Africa.  There was not one copy found on the internet in South Africa.  I groaned in my heart.   I pray all people in this country, could hear of the Mighty works of Elohim’s Set-Apart Spirit.
