Freedom comes from knowing the comforter.
Dear Friends, I really trust that you enjoy these messages. The Lord impressed upon me, very heavily, to speak about Freedom. Wherever I go, I find there are people that are struggling with the truth and with Freedom. In my travels I have seen so many people that are in Bondage. Probably one of the worst forms of bondage is to self. These messages are from my heart and from personal experience. I really believe that as you watch these messages you are going to be liberated by the Holy Spirit to live the life that God meant for you to live. I trust that they will bless you and your family and I believe that through the unction of the Holy Spirit they will help to break the shackles that are holding you back and you will start to walk a life of freedom and liberty, a life of purpose, and most of all a life of peace. God bless you" -Angus Buchan.
Free Indeed - John 8:36 says, "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. " Isn't that beautiful! Jesus Christ died on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. Saint Augustine once said, "Love God, and live as you please." When we love God we love His ways too.
The Battle of The Flesh - "Romans 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do." We all feel the same inner struggles as Paul was describing but as he said in verse 25, thanks be to Jesus Christ our Lord for giving us the answer.
Freedom in Discipline - I don't know if you've ever thought about this, but there is a freedom in discipline. It's almost like a protection. It's a good thing, it brings security and God disciplines those He loves. God can take your brokenness and He can turn it around, if you will allow yourself to become disciplined. I've seen it time and time again.
The Comforter Brings Freedom - Are you feeling lonely, isolated or trapped? There is good news. Freedom comes from knowing the comforter. Who is this Comforter? He is the Holy Spirit. Jesus said in John 14:26" But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
In 1976, political upheaval in Zambia forced hard-driving Angus Buchan (born 1947, Rhodesia) to sell-up his farm for a pittance and relocate with his family to South Africa. Angus' funds were so low that he couldn't afford a farm with a house on it, but with typical determination he settled on a piece of land in KwaZulu Natal and set about raising crops and livestock.
In 1977, Angus startled those who knew him with his sudden conversion to Christianity, and in 1979 he and his wife Jill committed their lives fully to Christ during a service at Greytown Methodist Church.
In his best-selling autobiography, Faith Like Potatoes, published in 1998, Angus recounts how he learned to trust that God was at work building something substantial even if he couldn't see it, much in the way a potato grows underground, out of sight. In 2006 the book was made into a film, which went on to become a huge success in South Africa and worldwide.
In 1980, the Lord gave Angus and Jill a clear vision very simply and clearly through His Word:
The Great Commission - Mark 16:15
Caring for Orphans and Widows - James 1:27
Equipping Saints for the Work of Ministry - Matthew 28:20.
This was the inspiration for Shalom Ministries, which has grown from an evangelistic outreach in Angus' own community to an Africa-wide concern. Without any formal higher education or theological training, Angus followed God's call and conducted his first preaching campaign in 1990 in Ladysmith, KwaZulu Natal. In the years since, Angus' reputation has grown to the extent that he now fills stadiums across the African continent.
Since 1995, Shalom Ministries has administered a home for AIDS orphans and a farm-school in Angus' home district of Greytown. Also, between 2003 and 2010 Shalom ran seven annual 'Mighty Men' Conferences - outdoor worship camp-outs for men and boys that grew from 40 attendees at the start to over 200,000, and have proven to be highly influential. Angus' evangelistic and worship events have been recorded live, bringing his distinctive down-to-earth teaching style to a worldwide audience. He also presents a twice-weekly Christian television program 'Grassroots', filmed mostly on his farm.
Despite the demands of his ministry as a full-time evangelist, Angus remains a man who values quiet times with God and maintains a simple, no frills lifestyle on his farm, which is now run by his two sons Andrew and Fergus. Angus and his wife Jill also have three daughters Robyn, Jilly, and Lindi.
