    Default Johanna Brandt: Die Vierde Visioen

    THE FOURTH VISION


    SOUTH AFRICA


    Again I woke from a short slumber to find the Messenger beside
    me as before, but with a new note of warning in his voice.

    "Awake!" he cried, “ Arouse thyself! The time is short, and I have
    yet one vision to unfold before thy eyes - See - See -the near future
    of South Africa. Be strong, be brave, summon all thy courage now,
    for it is not to torment and rack thee in this hour but to prepare thee
    for the task which has been laid upon thee, that thou shalt be asked to
    gaze upon this awful scene”

    A groan of agony and horror burst from my lips rallying my
    sinking physical forces, I sat up straight, the better to take in the
    details of that dread vision and gasped, "Spare, spare
    South Africa!" Unable longer to support the ordeal, I closed my
    horror-stricken eyes in the vain endeavour to shut out that scene, in
    vain - in vain.

    The length and breadth of our beloved land seemed to be swept by
    a tornado of resistless fury - a veritable hurricane of passionate and
    relentless wrath. Crashing peals of thunder rent the heavens, while the
    angry lightnings flashed and blazed. The very earth seemed to shake
    and tremble. Devastation, blood and ruin everywhere, while
    human beings fled and were scattered in all directions like leaves
    before a blast. Strange and terrible and wholly unexpected was the
    scene, but brief in duration, amazingly brief when compared with the
    power and fury South Africa, and to sweep away as suddenly as it had come.
    Who it was I do not remember, but someone crept in silently, tender
    hands wiped the death-sweat from my brow.

    Another heart attack,’I murmured faintly. " Leave me now, I want
    to sleep" and turning to the Messenger, I pleaded passionately, "Spare, spare, South Africa!"
    "Dost thou fear now, oh, thou fearless one? And dost thou indeed
    think that in thy land alone there is no darkness to overcome?
    Dost thou not understand that if South Africa could be spared from
    the process of purification, she can have no share in the coming glory?
    Wouldst thou save South Africa the pain and deprive her of the joy?
    Nay, the scene, which thou hast witnessed, is unavoidable; the
    disasters have been brought about by hatred, violence, injustice,
    jealousy; the storm is but the resistless outburst of long-fostered
    animosities, of systematic defamations, of purposely-instilled
    suspicions, of criminal persecutions; of hypocrisy, oppression and
    deceit.

    As men sow, so shall they reap, and in South Africa more than in
    any other land men have bowed the knee to the god of gold and have
    cherished feelings of covetousness on one side and revenge on the
    other through many years in a hundred thousand hearts the
    soil has been prepared for the inevitable storm of retribution.
    Fear not! Thou hast seen that the hurricane was of brief duration,
    which mercy depends largely on thy faithfulness. Thou hast been
    called to draw a living picture of this scene, to prepare the people for
    the approaching storm and to make an appeal to South Africa from
    North to South, from East to West, to sink all personal and political
    differences in an endeavour to stem the coming tide of woe.

    Verily I say unto thee, according to the power of thy appeal and
    according to the response, which it will have from the people of this
    country, the doom, which cannot be averted, will be mitigated.
    This is the purpose of thy life. Take heed, take heed that thou fulfil
    it faithfully"

    Aangehaal uit Millennium.

    Hierdie gaan waaragtig gebeur maar dit gaan nie vleeslik wees nie! Dit gaan wees skepper VS skepping (verwoesting van die vlees deur 'n gees genaamd die skepper)
