Galilee Educational Ministry (GEM) is a calling that God has placed on my heart in 2012.  After seeing the financial, emotional and spiritual hardship of fellow countrymen, women and children, I came to realise that there is a need for Biblical teaching and application in the marketplace.

For Godly stewardship throughout all aspects of individuals’ lives, as well as in local communities and the country as a whole.

Hosea 4:6 – My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; … (ESV).

Much of my experience stems from many years of working in legal environments, specifically three and a half years in the legal department of IEMAS – a financial institution – from 2001 to 2005 where I apposed Administration Applications in terms of Section 74 and also dealt with claims for deceased members.

I saw the financial hardship and devastation of so many people because they were never taught to handle their finances more wisely. Many people unknowingly applied for Section 74 Administrations not understanding the implication of their decisions.  Widows who had no idea what to do after their spouses suddenly passed away.  An elderly couple being robbed of their pension money, by their own granddaughter.  A woman discovering she was HIV positive, because her husband was having sexual affairs and had a twelve year old child with another woman.  Upon looking into his finances, she discovered that he was using a lot of money for something, which turned out to be antiretroviral medication to keep him alive as long as possible, but for her it was too late.  I remember seeing her frail body in her nurse’s outfit, standing at the top of the stairs, weak and exhausted from climbing them when she came to see me.  We spoke, we cried, I hugged her and never saw her again after that day.  I will see her again in heaven.

GEM’s Mission
To Biblically educate individuals on practical issues that range through a vast scope of daily activities.  How to apply the Bible to everyday living.  Teaching God’s way, from God’s Word.

GEM’s Vision
To reach and teach as many individuals as possible, throughout South Africa and to expand to where God leads the way.

All teachings are Scripture based, true and applicable.

2 Timothy 3:16 – All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, (ESV)

In addition to teaching, writing and ministering, I have created this site to record my testimony and what Jesus has shown me and shared with me over the last few years.  Everything is written as best I can recollect and everything is true.  The facts herein are not debatable, as they are truly experiences that I had and they are from YHWH.  Some people are of the opinion that it is not the guidance of the Holy Spirit and that my experiences can in fact be my own thoughts or from the devil.  Even the instances where my life was saved because the Holy Spirit warned me of danger?  Hardly the character of satan to save a life or warn against certain death (John 10:10).  To those who say that my experiences can be of the devil, God has this message for you:  what you say, can be blasphemy.  And also to say that certain Christians might operate under the devil, when in fact they are Holy Spirit filled people, to you God says:  you might be blaspheming the Holy Spirit, the unforgivable sin (Matthew 12:31).  So tread carefully.

Thus, I give my testimony of events as they happened to me and where possible I have asked those who were a part of it, to confirm their part in writing.  In the mouth of two or three witnesses, a matter shall be established.  And as far as I am concerned:  if two or three matters are established, then they all will be established.

I do not watch television, satellite or secular movies much as I find it too time consuming and invasive.  Besides that, I find these forms of entertainment, do not propagate healthy lifestyles or relationships and that they are not mentally uplifting.  They often contain some form of occultism and satan worship, sex, adultery, witchcraft or sorcery, alcoholism or drug abuse, violence, swearing and more often than not, swearing the Lord’s Name profusely.

Reading and studying the Word or related books, writing, watching Biblical seminars and movies or listening to sermons or Radio Pulpit and doing research on the internet.  Also conversing with fellow Christians personally, telephonically or via WhatsApp or e-mail.  These are the types of media I prefer to engage in.  And these are the random platforms on which God will give me different verses pertaining to a specific message that He wants me to pay attention to.  Sometimes I will receive the same verse/s several times in the same day or over several days from different avenues.  And the Holy Spirit will draw my attention to it.

I do very little FaceBook and am for the most part, busy with Biblical matters – and business/working.

Up until recently I was working and running my own business, however, that part of my life seems to be phasing out rapidly as I believe God is moving me into a different direction.

When you read my testimony, please read it prayerfully and under guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Malachi 2:10  Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why then are we faithless to one another, profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Romans 8:16  The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

My prayer for you and your loved ones:

Number 6:24 – 26

The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

God bless!
