South Africa in Prophecy
THE VOORTREKKER MONUMENT honoring the Dutch pioneer trek from Cape Town deeper into Africa to remain true to their biblical beliefs and traditions that were often opposed by the ruling British.
After reading about the Voortrekker Monument in James Michener's historical novel, The Covenant, a novel that kindled a great desire to visit such a glorious country, I made a special pilgrimage to the site to honor our Israelite brethren's part and sacrifice in their fulfillment of biblical prophecy. God blessed me with seven wonderful weeks in South Africa in the early 90's.

The Voortrekkers played an important part in Pretoria's past. The capital of the Boer republic in Transvaal was named after Andries Pretorius, the victorious leader of the Boers in the war against the Zulus. The founders of the former South African Republic were honoured by a colossal monument situated on Monument Hill, which is supposed to be a reminder of the courage, determination and persistence of the Voortrekkers.
SOUTH AFRICA IN PROPHECY
By Ron Fraser
Since the handover of government to Nelson Mandela in May 1994, the euphoria which greeted the new president’s inauguration has soured as crime runs rampant in the major cities, the country’s health services unravel, educational standards adjust downward and the rand plummets. The vision outlined by South Africa’s new government included many promises in the areas of housing, welfare, education and employment. These promises have yet to be largely fulfilled. What does the future hold for South Africa?
