About The Big Story SA

In 2008 I received a vision to connect the body of Christ, starting in South Africa. Little did I know it was God's mission for me. I thought it would only be a positive South African site.

But He had much greater plans. Thus it took 4 years for it to blossom. It was finally launched on the 27th of July 2012. It is called the Big Story SA...

From the world’s slums to God’s riches

1. What is the story behind NBJ?

The group N.B.J (Nobody But Jesus) is a Christian rap group which consists of four members; Adin Moore (E’zee M.I.M.O), Alex Stone (Saint), Shaundeon Afrika (King Smasher) and Byron Noble (BeesStaysNoble). The group was established in the year 2008 and is based in Cape Town, South Africa. They are passionate about reaching the youth out there and making an impact with their music.

2. What is your vision on impacting the nation(s)?

Our vision is basically to go out there and show everybody, especially the youth of this generation and to come, that serving Christ ain’t boring and we'll be doing it through the means of our music as our ministry, to change lives radically and introducing Christ to them by all means. It's all about Nobody But JESUS.

3. You recently launched your first album. Share with us!

It was launched on the 2ND of November, 2012 at EWC. The public received it quite well. What we wanted to do was give our supporters a preview of what will be on the album. On the pre-album we tackled everyday issues that anybody can relate to. Composing and production of all songs on the pre-album was done by Adin Moore and Byron Noble.

4. Where do you see yourself in the near future?

We see ourselves known globally, and impacting the world with our music especially Africa. We’ll be releasing our debut album in the near future as well. We do not have an official date yet but it’s definitely coming. We will be working with different artists abroad and nationally too.

5. What scripture would describe NBJ in a nutshell?

It would have to be MATTHEW 28:18-20. The scripture is what we base the group on and our mission. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

From Chains to Wings: The A21 Campaign

1. Tell us a bit more about The A21 Campaign’s mission?

The A21 Campaign (A21) is a global counter trafficking organization that is based in 7 countries worldwide. We focus our efforts on abolishing injustice specifically focused on human slavery. In order to achieve our goals in counter trafficking we operate within a 4-prong strategy that has been adapted from the The UN’s Palermo Protocol:

• Prevention: through awareness and education, equipping those identified as vulnerable people, with the tools they need to avoid becoming a victim of human trafficking

• Protection: for those who have been trafficked, by building crisis shelters and transition homes, supporting the survivors in long-term integration into society. We currently have shelters and transition homes in Greece, Bulgaria and Ukraine.

• Prosecution: our legal team and affiliated legal organizations work together to prosecute traffickers to strengthen the overall legal response to human trafficking in each country we operate in. In Greece we have had more than 11 convictions in court in 2012 alone.

• Partnering: with key stakeholders and role players in counter trafficking efforts, government and community members to provide a united approach to combatting trafficking and providing comprehensive care for survivors. In Greece we worked with local police authorities to set up a task team to investigate human trafficking cases and conduct rescues.

2. What are the statistics of human trafficking and the combating thereof?

27 Million The number of people in slavery globally. This means that there are more slaves in the world today than when it was socially acceptable and the slave trade was LEGAL in the 18th Century

32 billion What the slave trade grosses every year- more than McDonalds, Walmart and Coca Cola combined

100 This is the number of times one of the survivors in our shelters had to service men per day. In some circumstances those in the sex trade industry are servicing between 40-100 per day. Other realities of a victim- working 7 days a week, one meal a day, no pay, threats of violence to them and their families, forcibly addicted to drugs, no freedom, may not speak the language, forced abortions, babies given to infant farms to supply the demand for child slaves.

12 The average age of a trafficked victim.

Less than 1% of those caught in human trafficking, trapped in slavery will ever be rescued. 99% of those who are enslaved will not make it out alive.

24 The number of victims that have been assisted in transition by A21 South Africa since May 2013.

3. What can be done to solve this big human trafficking issue?

Human trafficking is a complex issue that requires a proportionate response from government, para-government agencies, NGOs, and civil society alike. While we would all like to believe that there is an easy answer to this injustice, the truth is that human trafficking is an ever-evolving crime that likewise requires evolving approaches from all role players.

While this may seem like a discouraging answer, we at The A21 Campaign are compelled to action with this in the back of our mind. We believe that through creativity, ingenuity, and comprehensive strategy in our four areas of prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnership, we will see injustice abolished in our lifetime.

It is more important than ever that you as a reader understand that you have the capacity to contend for the cause of justice in your sphere of influence. Whether you are an educator, a student, a corporate executive, or a stay at home mother, you have the ability to use what you have where you are to change history. We challenge you to get informed and get involved. Educate yourself through local news sources, published legislation, or by following organizations like The A21 Campaign on social media or through a subscription to our newsletter. Get involved by submitting an inquiry through www.thea21campaign.org , joining your area human trafficking task team, starting an abolitionist group in your church, school, community group, etc. or in some other way! Alone we cannot do everything, but we can all do something.

When we all link arms in our commitment to justice, we will see slavery abolished in the 21st century.

4. Is A21 gaining ground?

As a campaign we have been operational since 2008, and in that time we have planted in 9 countries. The unprecedented success in our first five years of operation is due largely to our commitment to partnership with governments, para-government agencies, and NGOs alike. Furthermore, our development staff on the ground in these countries have committed themselves to in-depth research to tailor A21’s various programs to the needs of the countries that we operate in. This approach has proven wildly successful both quantitatively and qualitatively.

Some of A21’s achievements in the past 4 years include:

Greece: Pioneering a Human Trafficking hotline that in its first year of operation led to 11 rescues. A21 has been acknowledged as a Hero organization in the Trafficking in Person’s report (TIP). Phillip Hyldgaard, our European Coordinator, was honored by Hilary Clinton for this achievement.

Bulgaria: A21 has been acknowledged as an official partner with the Bulgarian Government in strategies for combatting human trafficking in Bulgaria.

Ukraine: In November 2012 one of the survivors in A21’s care was the first official victim of human trafficking under new Ukrainian legislation.

UK: Is pioneering awareness programs for school age children, to protect them against this atrocity, as well as to inspire them into social action.

USA: Has seen the state of Georgia adopt A21’s School Awareness Program as official curriculum for all schools. A21 has also trained human trafficking task teams and law enforcement on strategies in combatting trafficking and how to screen for victims.

Australia: Is our head office and coordinates all strategic planning, along with school presentations rallying students on the importance of standing up for a cause and taking responsibility for what is going on around them.

South Africa: Has been operational since March 2013, we are currently leading the Rapid Response team in Western Cape, working together with law enforcement to place victims in safe care and respond to their immediate physical, emotional, and medical needs once they are identified. In June 2013 A21 represented Western Cape with 2 other NGO’s at the National Strategic Planning seminar, working with national government on the national strategic plan for effective implementation of the TIP Bill that was passed in July 2013.

5. How can the general public help?

Listen & obey: Shama

1. What is the story behind Shama?

The story behind Shama is the heart of a Bridegroom who desires a covenant people, a royal priesthood and a holy nation. Abba took me into a desert season in my life where I started to ask the question, what is the heart of a walk with God really about? On my Exodus journey of humbling and purification the word of Abba came to me. It was not in the form of a burning bush but it was the whispers of Wisdom Himself saying that I needed to go to Israel because He will answer my question there. He truly did part the water to get me there. I waited and I listened until that day when I was in a garden in Jerusalem. Father spoke to me so very clearly there saying that a walk with Him is about listening and obeying because as you listen and obey, as you hear and do, you make your way back to the garden of what He originally purposed for His children. That garden is called a covenant relationship. Shama was birthed out of a place where I asked God, how do we walk in the fullness of Your purposes? How do we possess the Promised Land? How do we receive the full inheritance that He purposed for us and how do we become His bride that stand ready for His return? How should we as believers live Kingdom on earth? In that garden He revealed to me that He wanted me to write a book but it would not be my book, it would be His book because the words in it will be the whispers of Wisdom revealing His truth to His bride that is awakened and who wants to walk in intimacy with Him. He said that the purpose of the book is to lead people into the promised land of intimacy with Him, which is something that we greatly lack and struggle within our relationship with Him. I carried the commission from the heart of Jerusalem to South Africa where I spent 3 months writing down everything that He revealed. I know that it is His wisdom and truth that flowed through my pen and nothing that I could’ve written by myself because I could feel the anointing as I wrote it down. There were many tears as I was overwhelmed by the richness of the words and the desire of our heavenly Bridegroom for a bride that give herself, her lifestyle to walk according to His ancient ways in her pursuit to posses the fullness of His presence and be transformed into His image. Through the pages of Shama He reveals that He wants to transform our lifestyles into a walk of listening and obeying.

2. Why is the Shama message so important?

The Shama message is crucially important because the church has fallen into a comfort zone of religion where compromise became the principle that most Christians walk in. We have moved far from His ancient paths because we have become distracted by the form of religion instead of focusing on the heart of what Christianity is actually really about- intimacy with God. Shama is so crucially important because the majority of Christians are fruitless. The principle of Shama which is listening and obeying or hearing and doing is the very principle that breaks the spirit of religion. Religion stays in a comfort zone where Shama walks in the Word. Religion is a fruitless tree but Shama brings you back to the garden of fruitfulness. Religion is dead but listening and obeying makes the dry bones alive where breath enters into it and they come alive. When you stay behind the veil of religion you will remain lukewarm because you do not walk in the Word and with the Spirit. We may have His Word on our lips, we may have knowledge about the Word and we may perform miracles by His Spirit, delivering the possessed, casting out demons and healings may even take place but you will still come before Him and you will still not be recognized as His bride because you have no fruit and you are veiled. If you do not live the principle of Shama through listening and obeying then you never walk in the Word and you never live it. Your Christian works and your church life ends up meaning nothing and you will be weighed and found too light because we were never called for religion, we were purposed to walk with Him in a covenant relationship.

We all believe that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, soul and strength and our neighbor as ourselves but if we look at the original Biblical text it sounds a bit different.

The original Hebrew word in the Scripture begins with Shama (or Shema) Yisrael and then it continues to say that we should love the Lord our God and our neighbor as ourselves. This Scripture is the answer that Messiah gives when He is asked what is the greatest commandment. The greatest commandment is not to love God and your neighbor as yourself. It is firstly to LISTEN and OBEY because the fruit of listening and obeying is LOVE. For how can we love Him if we do not obey Him? Loving God cannot be separated from obeying Him. Therefore the principle of Shama teaches you to walk with God; it is practical and life changing because it transforms your lifestyle from revolving around yourself and the things of this world to revolving around the true Word and conforming to His desires.

3. What is God speaking to the church right now?

This question makes me very excited because I know that when we really hear what He is saying and walk in it then we will see revival in a way that we have never seen before. Therefore listen closely to what I am going to say now because this is not my words but what Abba has revealed through His Spirit for those who want to listen. He is saying to you and me that He wants us to hear, He wants to circumcise our ears to prepare us to hear the sound of the trumpet which is the sound that will be heard as He gathers His bride, His army for a war and a wedding feast. That is what we are moving towards and what He wants us to hear in this time is how to get ready for it. The time that we are in now is a time of restoration; Abba wants to restore us to a covenant relationship with Him. He wants to restore us to a position of walking in His ancient paths. He wants to rebuild the old waste places of religion and legalism in our lives and rise up a nation that lives Kingdom on earth. He is saying to you and me now that we desperately need to break free from religion and pass over into a covenant relationship with Him. He spoke to me about what the Garden of Eden in the beginning is really about and said that there was a first Adam and there was a last Adam. The First Adam disobeyed because He did not walk in His order and therefore He was removed from the garden of intimacy with God. There was a first Eve but now is the time that the last Eve which is the true bride of Christ need to return to the garden of dwelling with God. It is time to go back to Eden. It is time to return to the Rock of Ages because the Lion of Judah is roaring: ‘I AM COMING.’ May He not find a people sleeping because of a state of religion. May He find a bride, ready, spotless, prepared who is restored to His garden, who is called the last Eve.

4. Tell us a bit about the cd launched recently?

When Abba gave the word that I needed to go to Israel He gave me 7 songs and He said: ‘Go to Zion with singing.’ I had to release the 7 songs in Israel at different places that He showed me. I had to literally plant the 7 pages of the songs in the soil of the Promised Land pouring anointing oil over it as if I was planting a seed. He revealed that the message of Shama will turn people’s deserts into a garden and that it will transform you into a tree bearing much fruit. He continued to speak and He said that there is a sound in His garden; it is the sound of a garden in the time of blossoming. That sound is the 7 Songs that He gave saying that the revelation about it is hidden in the pages of the Song of Songs. He is pouring out a new oil over His bride and it is called BLOSSOMING. The blossoming oil flows out of the fruit of covenant love with our Heavenly Bridegroom. He is saying that we need to hear the sound and the song of the Bridegroom so that we can be like the Shulamite bride in Song of Solomon. Song of Solomon is the one book in the Word that reveals to us Father’s true heart of intimacy. For us to be restored to His garden we need to abide in the Song of Songs. Each one of the 7 songs take you deeper into a covenant relationship with your Heavenly Husband and gives you a deeper understanding about how to prepare yourself for the Marriage supper of the Lamb. There is really a lot to share about this exciting revelation in these 7 songs but if I can sum it up by saying the purpose of each of them is- TO HEAR! Because when we hear, it will lead us into listening and when we listen it will lead us into obeying and when we obey we abide in a covenant relationship with Messiah which is the purpose of life. Each of the 7 songs carries the anointing of awakening your ears and your heart to your First Love.

5. What would you like to tell the world through the message of this ministry?

Wake up, because there is so much more to a relationship with God than what we have known. We are so used to putting God in the box of religion that we grieve His Spirit and we end up walking in circles in the desert when we were called to posses the Promised Land. We have become comfortable with dwelling in the desert and we have compromised so much that we live as though it is all there is. My greatest desire is just to obey my First Love, my Messiah through speaking the words that He puts in my mouth and releasing the sound of the trumpet alarm so that there can be great awakening. We need to be careful not to think that we are in the light but then we are actually in the darkness. There is no place in the bride of Christ for lukewarmness. I would like people to hear the true heart of Abba and return to it. I would like people to receive true revelation and understanding through the word that Abba gives so that they can move deeper into intimacy with Him. I would like people to take their eyes off of people, off of themselves, off of their teachers and pastors, off of organizations, systems, off of sugar coated messages and turn their eyes to behold the Bridegroom. To hear what He says and see what He shows because it is all about Him.

Fasting for a brighter future

1. Tell us the vision behind National Fast SA

As a country, we have neglected Jesus, so Satan has had his way with this place for so long. As a result, there is so much ungodliness that has saturated our nation that South Africa has become a modern Sodom and Gomorrah. You know there’s a problem when you receive more complaints of staff carrying out witchcraft in the office than late coming! For the past three years the Lord has laid on my heart to start a National Day of Fasting and Prayer. The vision is that the country will come to repentance and humble ourselves once again before our God. We are a nation that is known to have the most violent crime statistics in the world, so if we turn back to godliness for the world to see, they cannot deny that there is a Living God. This is ultimately for God’s glory and to build up warriors in His Kingdom.

2. What can be achieved through fasting?

Fasting with prayer is a mighty weapon our Lord God has so graciously provided for us to conquer in life. Fasting brings your spirit in alignment with God’s will (not ours), and becomes so ‘in tune’ with the Holy Spirit that strongholds are torn down and chains are broken. South Africa has so many strongholds tightened around her, that repentance, fasting and prayer is the weapon to break this oppression.

3. Why now?

Because we were born for such a time as this! In Acts 2 we are told that a generation of champions will rise up during the end times – all this darkness has set the stage for our lights to shine in order to make great advancements for the Kingdom of God. We were created in Christ to do good works, and not to just be someone but to do something. I discern that there has been a shift in the spirit realm in 2014 – God has major things planned, we are living the end times and the Kingdom needs end time players, because the bigger the turnaround for this country, the bigger God’s glory! Now is the time to be that light on a hill – nations must be drawn to our light and see our exalted God!

4. Why is this South Africa’s biggest hope?

Jesus is, and always has been, South Africa’s biggest hope. As humans we sometimes forget this very important Truth. God tells us in His Word that He has thoughts of peace toward us, not the evil we are experiencing now; and that He wants to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Jesus Himself fasted; and when He fasted for forty days in the Wilderness He walked out of there and literally changed the world! We need to follow His example and change our nation.

5. How can people take part?

The National Day of Fasting and Prayer falls on the second Sunday of January every year. However, that is not all– I am constantly being led by the Spirit to do more. He has led us to gather warriors to fast for 40 days for the 2014 elections. I am excited to see the move of God here! Please get in touch via any of our links to the right.
