HARVEST House Church’s Umkhumbie Theatre has released a short film titled God’s Anger and Mercy in a bid to “win” souls into the kingdom of God.
The film is about a young man, who after many years of living a life of crime and unscrupulous behaviour, encounters the love of God first hand, and is determined to tell people his life-changing testimony.
Sipho Khamanga, the writer and director of the film, said this was the correct time to manifest God’s love and mercy through
“The Bible says there is a time for everything under the sun, hence this is the set time to manifest God’s love and mercy in film, and this project will reach out to multitudes through the medium of television,” he said.
“The film elaborates on how merciful God is and it’s about the power of a testimony. The Bible in the book of Revelation 12:11 says: ‘And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death’.”
According to Khamanga, the target audience for the film is the youths between the ages of 14 and 30 years.
“We want to send a message to the youths who are always sitting at street corners and bridges that robbing people is not the solution to their problems; there is a higher life in Christ,” he said.
He, however, expressed concern at fellow believers who shy away from soul-winning, saying it was time to take bold steps in preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“The other emphasis is also on the believers of today who shy away from sharing their testimonies. Little do they know that they can change someone’s life and destiny!”
Khamanga said this was the first project he had produced for television and available for free distribution.
However, Part 2 of the film would be for sale.
