"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light day, and He called the darkness night. Evening came and then morning: the first day" - Genesis 1:1-5
It is my honour and privilege to share more about Thomas Ministries International (TMI) with you. We are a Jesus Christ, Grace conscious, Bible based (Old and New Testament), non-denominational, man-made tradition and religion free organisation mandated and called into being by Jesus Christ our Lord. We are convicted through revelation that Christianity is not a religion nor a denomination, but rather a LOVE relationship with God our Father, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. It is our intention to Exalt and Magnify Jesus Christ our Lord; His Cross & Ressurection through all our activities and communication.
On the 11 March 2010, I called my wife, Lizelle, brother, Edgar and sister in law Jade together to share with them a vision God has given me which I could not get out of my heart and spirit. It was and is like a fire burning inside of my belly that is progressively intensifying all the time. I shared Genesis 1:1-5 with them, with the emphasis on “Let there be light”. The Spirit of the Lord revealed to me that this portion of the scripture was what He wants TMI to be in the Body of Christ – to be a vessel that God can use to provide both born again believers and the lost who is in darkness with “Let there be light” life altering interjections. You see dear friends, when God said “Let there be light” when He created the earth, it was not to illuminate the earth only, but He was simultaneously speaking light into your life and future. He is the Alpha and Omega, He knows the beginning from the end and it was with this in mind that He ensured that by the time you and I get to our future (NOW) that it is irradiated with life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The moment I shared the vision with the people God led me to, they were all in agreement and confirmed that God has placed the same in their hearts.
So with 80 sandwiches, 80 cool drinks, 80 packets of chips, no idea of what we were doing or plan of action, with lots of zeal, excitement and absolute Faith in The Lord we set out on our first outreach to the homeless. It was an experience which has altered my perspective of life forever.
Through God’s Faithfulness and Him being our source, we have been diligently supported by our family, friends and partners with finances and commodities.
God’s Abundant Grace has also planted Word of Light Fellowship, which is a ministry of TMI, where the unadulterated truth of Jesus Christ our Lord is preached, teached and demonstrated. It is a Bible reading and practicing church where Jesus Christ is the supreme Head.
I trust you will be blessed with the content we share on this website and experience the love of Jesus Christ through it. I pray that your opinion of God will be that of a Loving and Caring God who LOVES you unconditionally and only wants you Living in the fullness of His Blessing.
