Faith without works is dead

Monthly letter from Ron – September 2021

The understanding of the authority we have in Christ Jesus should be our ultimate goal as believers.

We always ask people if they agree that if we should lose everything we have and own right now, but still have faith, we would still be the richest people on earth? They always agree.

 Then how could it be that so many people are worried about what is happening in SA right now?

Then I should say that we should be working on our faith.

Luke 17:5-6: “And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamore tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.”

The Armour of God -August 2021

Room 6 in the Alpha Omega Cave – Children of God wearing their full Armour with Authority in the Earth.

The Armour of God

I would like to lay to rest the question of the Armour of God in Ephesians 6. How do you put it on and do you take it off?

Putting on the Armour is putting on Jesus! 

Romans 13:14: “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.”

 Do I ever take off Jesus? No, most certainly not. The only reason why I keep putting on Christ daily is because I have to die daily. The war of the mind is a continuous one. Sometimes we wake up in the morning feeling strong and in contact with God then somewhere during the day you realize that someone said something and the smallest bit of fear enters to make you uncomfortable. Our closest friends are dying of Covid and we begin to ask inner questions.

The Power of Speech – July 2021

To set out and do the things your hands find to do is a great adventure if only you can keep fear or worry out of the equation. How do you keep negative thoughts at bay?

Death and life are in the power of your tongue

We had two bikers visit us this week, two normal good Christian guys who have to survive by faith because they have no permanent job due to the current climate in South Africa. They contract their abilities and are managing to provide for their families. My heart went out to them and I told them how God taught me to talk right when I was a struggling artist with no material things.

I was surprised when I saw they did not have the understanding of speaking the things that do not exist into being. (This is Heb 11:1 of the faith chapter.)

I believe that if I had a job with a monthly income, my faith would not have developed. I do not think I would have a single testimony that glorifies God because I only have to budget with the money I have. I think that the people who have to pray and be thankful for every slice of bread are by far in a better position to please God. The Bible teaches that it is impossible to please God without faith. To set out and do the things your hands find to do is a great adventure if only you can keep fear or worry out of the equation. It is impossible to master your thoughts by yourself. It must be really hard for those people who are forced to live by faith in the present economy and political situation with covet and jealousy thrown into the mix to bring greater chaos.

You’ve already got it! June 2021

June 2021 – You’ve already got it!

In Col 1:27 God had made known to us the riches of the glory the mystery of Christ in us.

The mystery of the will of God for man is that Christ should live inside people here on earth. Every time I read this verse I know that it is God’s will that Christ lives in me, yet, it is as if my natural mind does not fully comprehend it. As I read this verse continually I know that revelation comes to my soul of who I am in Christ. It as if layers of the veil have to be removed from my understanding.

Point is that if I fully understood this verse I would do the same works Jesus did in the earth. Heal the sick, raise the dead multiply food and walk on water. From reading 1 Pet 1:20 I understand that it was God’s will that Christ would be crucified before the foundations of the earth was laid so that mankind could do what Jesus did.

From Eph 1:17 It is God’s will that we have the revelation of the knowledge of the power that we possess in Christ.

Watch your Words!

Some people that I know have turned talking nonsense into an art form.  These same people are the ones who are not getting their basics needs met.  They say they pray and believe but when they meet up with their old friends they talk a lot of nonsense, cancelling out every life-giving word they spoke before.  Did you know the Bible says we will be held accountable for every idle word we speak. It also says that the angels of the Lord listens to the voice of God’s Word.  Did you know that God created the world with His world.  When we give our hearts to God heaven is listening to our words to bring to pass the things we have need of.  If we say something long enough it gets into the heart.  The heart, being like soil, will bring forth the things we sow into it.  If you say it long enough it will be the way you say.  I believe even the angels are so frustrated with the way we speak that they must ignore us until we actually believe the things we say.  I had an experience where the Holy Spirit was teaching me about the city of God.  The building itself was too big to describe, but the part I saw had steps leading up to a great door.  The door had a porch over it and I knew there were chambers in the same way Ezekiel describes it inside.

April 2021 – Agreement

Agreement

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Email-Logo.jpg

When doing a building job or new project on our property, I have to know if the Lord is in it. Secondly, I need agreement from my family. Many years ago we learned the power of agreement because of Mathew 18:19.

 Mat 18:19  “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”

We took this scripture to heart and wrote a physical contract of agreement. At the top, we write Mat 18:19 and then begin to write down the things we need to accomplish the task. Our first contract had basic things like our own property. A truck to transport wood out of the mountain, Yvonne needed curtains and the children had some needs. Michell was unhappy because they did not choose her for athletics and wanted to run and win the 80 and 60 meters. I remember it was a long list that we as a family agreed on as we had communion together and anointed each other with oil. Each of us gets a copy to take to our quiet time after everybody had signed it. It is a document of agreement. Do not come and tell me it is not going to happen this time! I will hold that document before you and show you where you agreed with everyone.

March 2021 – Hearing God’s voice

How to hear God’s voice

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Email-Logo.jpg

Many people have asked me how to hear God’s voice. I think that they expect it to be an audible voice of command accompanied by a feeling or at least goose bumps.
In fact God speaks through thoughts. It is a knowing that you know, you know God has spoken in your spirit. The very least we can do to hear from God is to make sure the conscience is clear. The blood of Jesus is for the conscience. 
 
Heb 9:14:  “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? “
If you do it this way you will more easily know if the desire you have for something is from out of self [flesh] or from God. If the desire I have is the flesh, it is out of the soul. The word of God divides between soul and spirit. (Heb 4:12)
 
God speaks in the imaginations and thoughts of the heart. (Gen 6:5) The heart is the conscience thus if the conscience is clear as it should be clear before God and man our thoughts and imaginations are ready to receive from God.
 
God came down to see the tower they had build and said:
 
Gen 11:6:  “And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them. “
The imagination is that strong that it can do anything people imagine they can do.
If the imagination is at the command of the Holy Spirit it will bring forth things that glorify God.
I have made many mistakes by not waiting long enough for the Lord to answer prayer. Then I read how Jesus said anything you ask the Father He will give it to you if you ask it in His name.
 
So I asked , believed and asked but nothing happened. I then made a point of asking God why He is not responding. After which I remained in my heavenly language for an hour or so. The next day while I was working I suddenly understood as the answer came up in my spirit. When you lack wisdom ask God, then when you know what to, GO AND DO IT!
 
In John 14 we are told to ask but in Mark 11: 23 we are told to SAY to the mountain be thou removed and it will obey you.
 
The lesson is that God already said everything He had to say.  He has given the life of His Son so that we can do the saying and commanding in the way Jesus spoke to sickness, the wind and to death. He always spoke to the situation, he did not pray and ask GOD to do it, He spoke to the fig tree and it died. We are mostly asking God to do things that He has already given us the authority to do. It is always God’s will that everybody be healed. It is also His will that we be provided for in every way. Most of the time God is waiting for us and we are waiting for God. I am sorry to say but God will not budge. It is time for the sons of God to grow up.
 
Rom 8:14:  “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
To do the things Jesus did in the earth.

February 2021 – The Heart

The Heart referred to in the Bible is not the Physical heart.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Email-Logo.jpg

I have been making a study of the word heart in the Bible. The word is used  seven hundred and sixty five times in the Bible. As far as I can make out it always refers to the spirit heart and not the physical. We must remember that the Bible is a spiritual book that must be discerned spiritually. This is the reason  that the carnal intellect does not understand the Bible. When intellectuals try to explain the Bible it makes no sense to anyone. This is the reason that there are so many interpretations of the word of God. I believe that the Holy Scriptures are written is such a way that it remains a mystery to all people until the Spirit of God interprets.

This being said there is one truth that must be applied to understanding the word, that all things that are physical are also spiritual.

The Kingdom of God is within

A New year letter from the Shoe Ministries.

The great commission to all believers is to preach the Kingdom of God.

 It has come to my attention that most people don’t know where the Kingdom of God is. “The Kingdom of God is within”. Jesus stood on earth and said he was in heaven. 

Ephesians 2:4 says we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. In Hebrews 12:22 “We are citizens of heaven”. Just to name a few scriptural examples. How can this be? Some say heaven is to the north of the earth and others that we will someday live in heaven but we are in hell right now. So many traditions and religions that make the word of God of none effect.

“But the kingdom of God belongs to children” (Luke 18:16).  

When God came to earth in Genesis 65, He saw that the imaginations and thoughts of men’s hearts were continually evil.. For this same reason, He gave Noah the task of building the ark so that only he and his family would be saved as the flood commenced and wiped out the entire population of the earth. These three words describe that most important part of man where God should live, inside man. In the imaginations (1) and thoughts(2) of the heart(3). This shows that the physical heart is only a pump while the heart is where imaginations and thoughts abide that are of such importance to God.
