Yesterday I gave an account of the divine court case that occurred May 30, 2022, where Bradley was the Plaintiff, that is, the one filing a complaint. He was not the Defendant in this case, although much of the case seemed to make him the Defendant.
Bradley had called for this court case to file complaint against the South African government leaders who had conspired with the bankers to prevent the funding of the Kingdom. (There is much going on behind the scenes that I have not revealed.) This divine court case turned out to be quite different from what Bradley expected, in that it was presided over by the Ancient of Days rather than Abba. For that reason, Bradley himself appeared to be the Defendant on behalf of the world of corruption.
Nonetheless, at its root, the court case was filed against the South African government leaders who were in opposition to God’s Kingdom. This opposition dates back at least 20 years ago. That story has yet to be told. All I can say is that John has known (personally) every president since 1994 when the apartheid era ended and the ANC took charge of the new government.
With our court case in mind, yesterday’s news about South African president Ramaphosa was quite significant.
Arthur Fraser lays charges of kidnapping, bribery against Ramaphosa
"I have taken the unprecedented step to lay criminal charges against his excellency, the president of the republic of South Africa," Cyril Ramaphosa, former intelligence head Arthur Fraser said in a statement.
According to Fraser, burglars on February 9, 2020 broke into a farm north of Johannesburg belonging to Ramaphosa with the help of a domestic worker, where they found and stole more than $4 million.
Fraser has accused the president of organising the "kidnapping of suspects, their interrogation on his property, and bribery".
"The president concealed the crime from the South African police service and/or South African revenue service and thereafter paid the culprits for their silence," he said.
In South Africa it is a serious crime to hold foreign (paper) currency in large quantities. According to the charges, President Ramaphosa’s farm was burglarized, and the thieves “stole more than $4 million” (US dollars) that was unlawful for Ramaphosa to own. The thieves were apparently caught, whereupon they were detained (kidnapped), interrogated, and bribed to keep silent. After all, the thieves could not be brought to trial without exposing Ramaphosa’s own crime.
Another article adds:
The presidency has not commented on the matter.
Mr Fraser claims that alleged criminals entered Mr Ramaphosa’s property on 9 February 2020 and were caught after stealing $4m (£3.2m).
He claimed that the suspects were subsequently kidnapped and interrogated and paid off to keep silent.
This is a huge event in South Africa, which has the potential of bringing down the entire government of the ANC.
There has been a lot of political infighting for a long time. Three years ago President Zuma was being accused by Ramaphosa of weaponizing the State Security Agency (SSA).
Former South African President Jacob Zuma used the country's intelligence services for his own political and personal interests, most notably against his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa, a government report charges.
Published Saturday on President Ramaphosa's initiative, the report of about 100 pages details "serious breaches of the Constitution, policy, law, regulations and directives" by Mr Zuma during his nearly nine years in office.
The State Security Agency (SSA) targeted Mr Ramaphosa in the run-up to his becoming head of the ruling African National Congress in 2017, and then president, it said. Mr Zuma stepped down in early 2018 amid charges of massive corruption.
There is more to all of this than meets the eye. I will keep you posted on these developments as they are revealed in the news, because these things have a direct bearing on the work of the Kingdom in South Africa.
How to Judge the World Righteously
The point is that Bradley, acting as Plaintiff in the divine court against the corrupt leadership in South Africa, appears to have won his case. But first, God had to iron out some things in Bradley’s own way of thinking. I find this very interesting, because I learned the hard way 40 years ago that when we file charges against one who has done us harm, God judges us first before judging the other. This is usually unexpected and even disconcerting.
Yet Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:2, “Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world?” If we are among those “saints,” we are indeed called to judge the world. In fact, we have been involved in divine court cases since 1993, all of which ultimately were designed to judge some portion of the world. Each case has taught us aspects of God’s law and has also served to purify our hearts and understanding so that we might conform to the image of Christ.
But God’s judges must be cleansed and purified first, so that they do not judge others for things that they themselves are guilty of. God’s judges are thus trained, often quite severely, so that they do not fall victim to the principle in Matthew 7:1, 2,
1 Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2 For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.
This is not an absolute prohibition on judging, of course, for then it would be impossible for the saints to judge the world. Neither would the saints be seated on “thrones” in the great day of judgment. We read in Daniel 7:9, “I kept looking until thrones were set up.” The Ancient of Days was not the only one to sit on a throne judging the world.
Revelation 20:4 echoes the same thing, where John says, “Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them.”
We see, then, that both Paul and John testify that the saints will judge the world. But God’s judges must be found worthy, for if they were to judge the world for sins that they had yet to resolve within themselves, would they not find themselves judged by the same standard of measure?
This principle is rooted in the law of equal weights and measures in Leviticus 19:34-36, which is presented to us in the context of judging all men equally and impartially:
34 The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. 35 You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measurement of weight, or capacity. 36 You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin; I am the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt.
Becoming an overcomer requires, among other things, learning how to judge righteously. And until we learn how to be righteous judges, it would be prudent to follow Jesus’ advice: “Do not judge, so that you will not be judged.”
