PRESS THE BATTLE TO THE GATES.
We are a frontline ministry and our intention is go to the unreached peoples and nations whether near or far and to press the battle to the gates of hell, as we have ministered over the years we have seen the great need among the nations and those who have never heard the Good News. We have had the joy of seeing many thousands enter the Kingdom, yet during this time we have realised we are sometimes the only ones in the field, even though there are many churches in the area, the frontlines are empty and many of the soldiers have abandoned the their calling. We also realised that it is because most of the funds raised is not for the frontline, or if it is, it is redirected and used for other causes, even at the cost of the souls of those not yet reached. Our appeal to you is keep us in the frontline and help us to call the soldiers back to their posts, with proper equipment and finances to cover not only themselves but there families as well. Many are going to war at their own cost and at great loss to themselves and their families, we can quote you many scriptures but let's be real and do it. This is just wisdom and if you keep the enemy back you keep yourself at peace, so our cry is keep the battle pressed at the gates of the devil, be it the Gospel, be it poverty, be it morality, lets keep the soldiers in the frontline for oursakes and for the Name of Jesus.
REMEMBER YOUR MOTIVATION.
The next point we need to consider is that we must not be distracted and give unwisely, around us are many causes, and poverty and needs that will never be satisfied and can absorb all our resources. Remember when you give, give to bring an end to all the poverty and misery, give so that this age can end and the Prince of Peace can come back and take His rightful place. He will put and end to all the poverty and all the misery. Remember this "that this Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached to all the nations, and then the end will come".
Remember the Gospel must reach the nations.
APPROACH GODS'S WORK PROFESSIONALLY.
The attitude we need to have about the Gospel is to approach it as you would your own profession, you need to be as dedicated to it and even more so, as if you are running your own business. We can't approach it half hearted, or with a flippant attitude, you need to plan and do it with a purpose, we have learned to be systematic and purposeful in our approach to each outreach. We make sure we use our time and resources to achieve the goal and that the best is realised with what we have, we dont just do it we purpose it. We also have learned to travel light and conserve our resources, and use it were it makes the most impact and we get the best returns, we invest in souls and our business is souls and our returns are guarenteed by Heaven.
CHALLENGE: BE PART OF THE GREATEST EVENT OF ALL TIME.
Now as we look at the Word of God we can clearly see certian signs coming together as warnings that the return of the Lord could be much nearer than we think. We can look at it from a catastrophic viewpoint or as a highlight of all that must happen, lets look at it from this one, as we see all things culminating, then one of the events that has to preceed the coming of the Lord to gather us unto Him, is that the biggest harvest of souls ever. This is going to part of the greatest events of all times and you and we have a prime position not to be spectators but players, to partake in this event and bring in the harvest.
Now is the time.............Join with us as we labor in this great event, do it NOW.
With 20 years of experience and zeal we have seen many thousands upon thousands come to the Lord and countless many healed yet we dare not look back we have to keep our hands on this plow. The promise of the harvest to come and the planter close at our heels and the Joy...O the joy of the days to come and countless many who are going to come in and be saved, we are ready are you, come strengthen our arms and share in His joy.
THE GEARING OF THIS MINISTRY.
All Africa Missions and Africa Ministries International are geared for this work, our initial call and the leading of the Holy Spirit has prepared us well and as a mighty harvester in the fields we have the harvest in mind. Every thing we do and plan is geared to to that same purpose and goal of finishing what we have been commissioned to do and to do it well, and to lay at our Lord's feet the sheaves we have gathered.
Thank you Jesus for this wonderful privilege.
THE CALL OF GOD.(Evangelist Ricky van der Walt)
Late one cold winter's night in mid-1987, while studying for exams I was challenged by the Gospel message being broadcast on the radio. The challenge was that I was blind and unable to see, which I naturally disputed and lost to the glory of God, amen. He challenged me to surrender my life to Him, and after a few nights of wrestling with God I gave my all to Christ. He opened my eyes to reality and I saw the hardness of people towards each other and felt God's love for them. In 1989 I left my hometown Stilfontein in the Klerksdorp district and made my home in Rustenburg, during this time my wife Annetjie and my two children all gave their hearts to Jesus. There He opened my understanding to the scriptures and started to disciple me in His ways. Later I chose between my career as a future electrical engineer and being a disciple, I chose the latter and went and worked back on the tools as an artisan. In His faithfulness God started training me for the mission fields, bringing the gospel to the many different nations working in the mines He taught and empowered me to work in the harshest of conditions and Christ was preached in the very bottom pits of the earth. [ GLORY TO JESUS.] Needless to say the day came when He challenged me to a fulltime calling as an evangelist/teacher of the Word. In December 1994 we left all and God led us into the Eastern Cape where we are based at this time, also a preparation and time of learning, being discipled by the Holy Spirit. We have criss crossed the Eastern Cape with the Gospel, mostly amongst the poorer and less fortunate people, using whatever whenever, we have been able to reach many with the love of Christ. Living only by faith and trusting in God for our every need, I have seen thousands surrender to Christ, nearly every new testament miracle has been done, and much of Gods word and signs confirmed as we preached, seeing that Jesus is alive and with his disciples in the frontline. We have lived the Word and believe more than ever and can confirm the truth of the Gospel as the only answer for this world. We have seen and felt the need of the poor and lost, their cries and heart sore their laughter and joy as they grabbed out for our Lords saving grace. [ What blessed privilege amen.]
In December 1995 God gave me a vision for Africa and led me to establish the ALL AFRICA MISSIONS TRUST [A.A.M.T.] to facilitate the spreading of the Gospel to all nations. From the tip of southern Africa northwards to the ends of the earth, He who is faithful will do this. Amen.
FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS UNTO GOD.
Later during an outreach to Malawi and Mozambique, I was preparing myself spiritually through fasts and seeking God's answer about certain things I was seeing and experiencing. Also I saw the darkness that engulfed the peoples of these areas and was hoping to be able speak to them about witchcraft and the dangers that they were in................................................................
It was relayed to me that when we return from Mozambique I would be given a chance to preach to them in Blantyre, as I meditated on this, these words seemed to keep turning in my mind
"From the power of darkness unto God........From the power of darkness unto God................ From the .........". I then started to recall that a scripture used in the bible also had similar words, and to cut a long story short I had an Old King James study bible with a concordance in it. Acts 26: 18 was the reference. I thanked God and later as I sat down to use this key scripture to prepare a sermon, I started to read it in context and I then realized God was talking to me and not to Blantyre.
ACTS 26: 16 > 18 .
"NOW GET UP AND STAND ON YOUR FEET. I HAVE APPEARED TO YOU TO APPOINT YOU AS A SERVANT AND AS A WITNESS OF WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN OF ME AND WHAT I WILL SHOW YOU.
I WILL RESCUE YOU FROM YOUR OWN PEOPLE AND FROM THE GENTILES. I AM SENDING YOU TO THEM TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND TO TURN THEM FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT, AND FROM THE POWER OF SATAN TO GOD, SO THAT THEY MAY RECEIVE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND A PLACE AMONG THOSE WHO ARE SANCTIFIED BY FAITH IN ME." AMEN
Brothers and sisters what more can I say but that God who has called us into fellowship with His dear Son is faithful.
ESTABLISH A PLATFORM FROM WHICH YOU CAN LAUNCH OUT
We felt led to move to a new area and further down the coast we found a town Aston Bay we launched out in faith and have our own property from which we are able to reach out to the lost. God has made it possible to work with some of the local ministries as we were building and renovating the base, then the reminder "TAKE MY LOVE TO THE NATIONS ". I started to reach back to the Northern Province from where I initially came thinking that I would be able to raise a team from among them, who would "stand and fight" and I was aiming to cross by vehicle into Botswana and up towards my calling knowing I must go to the nations no matter what. Certain dynamics changed and the door was not opened so I returned home after a word from a prayer warrior, still yearning to answer the call and then, God....Praise His Holy Name opened a door into Zambia. I climbed on a plane with a young evangelist and flew into the unknown, by plane, taxi, bus and on foot I set out as Paul would have and in two weeks we touched three cities in such a way that the "cry has gone up come help us". I have invitations as far as the DRC and even beyond, I did everything in my power to stir up others to respond as I saw that if we are going to bring this Gospel to the nations we would have to move on a far greater scale and in such a way that we would reach those that are out of reach and left to perish. I need to be able to move in such a way that the churches and believers would rally with me to reach the lost, many of the lost can't go to church and are dying in a spiritual wasteland. Let me relate what I felt as I traveled by plane over Africa......
As far as the heavens are above the earth, so far above the heavens is God's Heaven and so also His Glory.
As I look down from the window of the plane I behold the earth below and ponder that at this height I see a lot, not in detail but in scale. The earth becomes like a field below and I wonder the Powers that are controlling all this, how different their perspective must be, counties are like farms and cities are like kraals.
Then this task at hand seems to be easier as I look at it country by country and surely if I can evangelize with this view the task becomes simpler, and city wide evangelism makes all the more sense and will quicken the Lords return. Let it be so to the Glory of Jesus the Son Of God.
During the first half of 2008 I was eager to pursue the road back to those who I had seen in 2007 yet it seemed as if I was ahead of schedule and that which I had seen happen was at a distance to me except from the videos and recordings that kept reminding me. I decided to reach out locally and build a team, God faithfully brought a young evangelist to me and together we reached out locally and God did many amazing miracles, some like I have never seen before, yet as I pondered on the response and the value that was added by the people was not good and I felt I need to meet people who will value God's presence. I found myself saying I am going to America......
2008 the ministry goes international and I see people coming from all the nations to an outreach in America....seeking God and putting value on the Gospel and on God's presence.
All Africa Missions and Beyond is now in that phase of reaching out to all the nations and has an international leg taking it into the future.
Africa Ministries International and from this point it has an African leg and an International Leg.
I believe that the International leg is going to add value so that our call to reach Africa is also going to gain momentum seeing the harvest is so great in all the earth and workers still so few I believe that the peoples from all the nations will rally together to honor the words of our Lord and Savior. Go and make disciples of all nations..........Math. 28:18>>20.
Let us together heed the call whether you go or send, let us bring Glory to Jesus.
Evangelist. Ricky van der Walt
WHEN I STAND BEFORE..........
By: Evangelist Ricky van der Walt.
As an Evangelist I am called to stand before people and bring the Good News, there are times when I stand before a broken or dying person with needs that go way beyond my ability, and times when I stand before people and see the face of poverty and see that which I do not have the resources to meet, and times when I stand before masses, full of expectation and hope. As an Evangelist, I proclaim the Good News, saying to them, God is good and able to meet your needs, I tell them of God's Kingdom and I draw them to the Body of Christ, whom I represent. Reminded by this, and seeing that which is way beyond my means, yet still knowing God will back me up. And you dear believer and partner in the Gospel will not let me or them down, to whom I so boldly declared " believe in Jesus, be saved, He will change your lives," as I bring them into the blessed hope that we have.
WHEN I STAND BEFORE them I dare not hesitate or they can be lost forever, I dare not doubt as I stand believing that which I boldly proclaim, will be so. Help me to help them, for their sakes and for the Name of Jesus. Let us bring Him Glory as we do His bidding.
WHEN I STAND BEFORE...HIM.
I WILL REMEMBER.....YOU.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
As I have boldly proclaimed to them God is Good I declare to you God is Good and a rewarder of faith and say to you that as you give, you will receive and it will be multiplied back to you, so you can give again to receive again, to give again....whatsoever you sow in kind and in amount you will reap....this gift will lead to an overflow of thanksgiving from many towards God......Thank you so much as you give, and remember.... first Give yourself to Jesus.
To understand the operation of this Ministry go to.....
Thank you so much.
