Ron Ross and Net Casting Ministries Kenya 2012 Report
The struggle of the centuries has been to free the soul of tribes, tongues, and nations from narrow interpretations of Jesus, who is the very essence of the Father¯s message. The world is still waiting to see Jesus as He is!
¯Jesus the magnificent, Jesus the giant, Jesus the compassionate, and Jesus the dynamic, the wonder of the ages. Take the shackles off; let Him have a chance to bless mankind through you without limitations!¯ John G Lake
While preparing to go to Kenya, Father imparted to me a prophetic perspective of His Kenya. He touched my heart with Kenya¯s struggle of the centuries. That may sound ludicrous to you; but, it gave me the heart sight to speak powerfully into the narrow interpretations that shackled the very soul of Kenya and her pastors.
To the amazement of these 300 Christian leaders,(and most of all to me) Father revealed and removed many of the shackles which had historically diminished His Blessings to and through His Body in Kenya! Following are some of the keys he revealed.
Develop Heart Sight Hope and direction come from seeing situations, ourselves, circumstances, and others the way they were meant to be seen (from His perspective)! Heart sight keeps the door of Father¯s vision and knowing open.
Hosea 4:6My people are ruined because they don't know what's right or true. (Msg.)
Proverbs 4:5-7 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. 6Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. 7Don't assume that you know it all.(Msg.)
Psalm 111:10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Good sense is shown by everyone who follows [God's guiding principles]. His praise continues forever (GWT)
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.18If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.
Heart-sight creates and results in restorative community, instead of accusing, judgmental fellowships: and through our new hearts we see the spiritual vision God sees.
¯His knowledge of us is the vehicle through which He bestowed the magnitude of His priceless promises upon us; the expectation of the promises pointed towards our restored participation in our godly origin; His image and likeness revealed in us.
The factory settings of His new heart in us are restored; every compatible programme is again installed in our heart and soul hard-drive to facilitate the Divine Nature. Thus we have escaped the distorted influence of the corrupt cosmic viruses of the culture around us.¯ (Adapted from 2 Peter1, Mirror)
¯Don¯t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You¯ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.¯ (Romans 12-1-2, Msg.)
¯Now that the stage is set to display life¯s excellence, imagine the extreme devotion and focus of a conductor of music; how he would diligently acquaint himself with every individual voice in the choir, as well as the contribution of every specific instrument, to follow the precise music represented in every note in order to give maximum credit to the original composition; this is exactly what it means to exhibit the divine character.
Before a performance the first violinist will give the exact note for every instrument to be finely tuned to that note, in the same way the faith of God gives that exact pitch. You are the choir conductor of your own life; study the full content of faith; you will find virtue there, and within virtue faith-inspired knowledge will voice its contribution. (There is a level of understanding that can only be accessed by faith. Heb.11:3, ¯by faith we understand that the ages were framed by the Word of God...)
The one attribute reveals the other, strength of character emerges out of faith-knowledge, in its strength follows the ability to prevail in patient perseverance, these are the ingredients that reveal depth of devotion; out of such devotion flows true friendship, and brotherly affection inspires divine love.
While you diligently rehearse the exact qualities of every divine attribute within you; the volume will rise with ever increasing gusto, guarding you from being ineffective and barren in your knowledge of the Christ-life displayed with such authority and eloquence in Jesus.
If anyone feels that these things are absent in his life, they are not; spiritual blindness and short sightedness only veil them from you. This happens when one loses sight of one¯s innocence. The moment one forgets the tremendous consequence of the fact that we were cleansed from our past sins, one seems to become pre-occupied again with the immediate sense ruled horizon, which is what short sightedness is all about; this makes one blind to His blessings. Spiritual realities suddenly seem vague and distant.
Therefore I encourage you to make every conscious effort my Brothers to become cemented in the knowledge of your original identity revealed in the Word; fully engage these realities in your lifestyle; if you do this you will never falter. Thus the great Conductor of music will draw your life into the full volume of the harmony of the ages; the royal song of our savior Jesus Christ.¯ (Adapted from 2 Peter1, Mirror)
Many signs and wonders followed! By the end of the Pastors training conference, testimonies abounded of God¯s renewed, fresh vision and heart changing revelations. Many were healed and restored in relationship issues. The sweetness of striking, graceful, rhythmic flowing together in unity was evident to all. Make sure you take the time to look at the attached photos.
Another urgent update:You may not be aware that Janis and I have historically worked part-time to help supplement our support base for Net Casting Ministries. This has not been as consistent in the past two years. Thus, we are asking that you pray about whether God would have you partner with us, in prayer and financial support. To be very frank, we don¯t have the funds at this point to even keep up with basic, immediate living expenses.
If God is calling you to help, please make checks out to either; Ron Ross or New Life Christian Fellowship. Send support to Ron Ross, 261 N. Thomas Lane, Stony Point, NC 28678.
Janis and I continue to be amazed at the generous, loving partners we have had throughout our ministry. We are so grateful and are still standing in total faith in a faithful God! There are many open doors remaining. Pray with us as we go through them in His perfect will and timing. We love you!
In the grip of a loving and faithful Father! Ron and Janis
