- April 2021 – Agreement
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.

- February 2021 – The Heart
The Heart referred to in the Bible is not the Physical heart.
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.
