Prof. Johan Malan’s Book – Jesus Christ and our Life in Him (English)

Prof. Johan Malan has released the English version for free on For the Love of His Truth  to download.  The Afrikaans version will be published by Lux Verbi next year (2012).


1. God Incarnate
2. The Sonship and Deity of the Lord Jesus
3. The Atoning Death of the Lamb of God
4. The Centre of our Existence
5. Love as a Principle of Life
6. Commands and Promises
7. Our Life in Christ
8. The King who Comes Again
9. Marriage of the Lamb
10. Excellence of the Messiah



7. “It is finished” (John 19:30). The original Greek version of the dying word of Jesus is
tetelestai. To fully comprehend the significance of the word tetelestai that was uttered by
Jesus at the moment of His death, we should briefly investigate its applications during the first
century. This word was more meaningful to those people than to us today, and we will do well
to retrieve its original meaning.(p.40)



Thank you Prof Johan Malan !!!

  1. If you believe the Lord God, Himself, dictated to Moses – letter by letter the Holy Scriptures you might want to know He secretly encoded the footnote, ‘Messiah, the anointed One, Yeshua, Jesus’, in the text of the story of the creation which is in the second chapter of Genesis. To see this illustrated go to (ADMIN – Link removed, see comment) . It’s all really there, you might want to have a look.

      Any saved true believer does obviously believe the Bible and what is written in it. The men who was inspired by the Holy Spirit of God wrote the Bible. God has no secrets for believers. God opens each and every true believers eyes to understand the Scripture. God’s revelation in Scripture is revealed to every true believer by the Grace of God alone ……We are saved by grace trough faith, not of our own doing. Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Eph 2:9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

      The un-believer cannot understand the Word of God as it is folly to him. Joh 12:40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.” Matthew Henry Concise Commentary explains: Joh 12:37-43
      Observe the method of conversion implied here. Sinners are brought to see the reality of Divine things, and to have some knowledge of them. To be converted, and truly turned from sin to Christ, as their Happiness and Portion. God will heal them, will justify and sanctify them; will pardon their sins, which are as bleeding wounds, and mortify their corruptions, which are as lurking diseases. See the power of the world in smothering convictions, from regard to the applause or censure of men. Love of the praise of men, as a by-end in that which is good, will make a man a hypocrite when religion is in fashion, and credit is to be got by it; and love of the praise of men, as a base principle in that which is evil, will make a man an apostate, when religion is in disgrace, and credit is to be lost for it.

      The Page you gave the link of says “God reveals His hidden secrets” Well as i said for the true believer God has no secrets for the truth is written in our hearts. The link was removed as i do not deem it safe for our valued brothers and sisters to read.

    There are certain mysteries contained in the Scriptures, and the Scriptures are certainly the inspired Words of God. Those mysteries are hidden from unbelievers, not from the true Christians. Whoever claims to have special revelation of things which are hidden in Scripture is making false claims. That sort of misleading thinking is fictional and should be regarded as material for Hollywood movies, unsaved televangelists and unbelieving authors who write books such as “The Bible Code” and “Angels and Demons”.

    According to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke there are no secrets which are hidden from those to whom God chooses to reveal the Truth.

    Here is the Biblical stance on these matters, you can read it in your own translation. These verses are from the ESV Bible:

    From the Gospel of Matthew:
    Mat 13:11 And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
    Mat 13:12 For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
    Mat 13:13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

    From the Gospel of Luke:
    Luk 8:9 And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant,
    Luk 8:10 he said, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’

    From the Gospel of Mark:
    Mar 4:10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
    Mar 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
    Mar 4:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

    You can research commentary on these and other verses which indicates clearly that there certainly exists no such secrets as held in footnotes, etc.
