described in detail in the Word of God, then you have to move to a STRATEGIC, TIMELY, TARGETED
special Word. ‘I need a Word on this.’
For instance, I live in a house far beyond my means. Okay? My house has got some ‘wow’ to it. That’s
why I don’t want anybody to see it because they don’t know how I got it. I didn’t go to the bank and get a
loan and pay for this house. I SAW this house.
We needed to move because everybody had discovered the last place we lived and I was having a lot of
persecution. So, when I tell you a LOT, you don’t have any idea. We had to hire cops to stand in my yard.
Well, that’s not a life; that’s a compound. That’s not the way I want to raise my kids. So I had to move.
I SAW this house. This house immediately says, ‘You can’t afford this house.’ It was like it was written
across the front of it. Have you ever seen anything like that? Okay. I walked in the house and I asked the
realtor and everybody to leave. Okay. I didn’t turn to Hebrews 7 to see if this was my house, because it
doesn’t say it; it just says I am blessed. He’ll give me houses I didn’t build. Vineyards I didn’t plant. Wells
I didn’t dig. It says I have favour, but it don’t give me DETAILS. Okay?
So I asked everybody to leave me alone. I didn’t go in that house for an hour and [speak in tongues]. I
walked into that house in the foyer and I looked up and I said, ‘God, is it mine?’ He said… ‘Yes.’ When
you HEAR that, nothing else matters. Now some of you ain’t clapping. You know why? Because you
really, deep down don’t believe that.
But see, let me tell you where I am and my walk with God. I believe that! I don’t care what they’re asking.
I don’t care how difficult it is. I found out it was tied up in three lawsuits once I got involved. That don’t
matter. I found out it had legal trouble. I found out there were backtaxes. There were all kinds of problems.
But NONE of that mattered because when I walk in the house, I HEARD the RHEMA of God!
I heard God give me a detailed, strategic Word, ‘Ron, I built this for you; not for the world.’ Now, you ain’t
going to believe this. Then the Lord told me what to offer for it. What He told me to offer for it was almost
half the tax assessment. I mean, downtown what they got the house listed to pay taxes for, which is always conservative, God told me to offer almost half of that. Then I said, ‘Who owns the house?’ And they said
so and so and ‘he is a shrewd businessman.’
You see, my giants start stacking up. I’m getting all these giants. I went to the man and said,
‘Hi, I’m so and so.’ He said, ‘I know who you are.’ Now when people say that, it ain’t always good. It’ll help
you out once in a while, but it’s hurt me a few times too. I said, ‘I believe I’m supposed to buy your house,’
and I said, ’and this is what I’ll give you for it.’ And he said… ‘Sold.’
It was over. Why? I had about 8 things to LOOK at that were giants, obstacles, mountains, realities to
tell me, ‘NO.’ But I ask God one thing, ‘Is it mine?’ If He SAYS it’s your, all the other stuff is irrelevant
because it’s not your problem. The battle becomes the Lord’s to put you in there.
So it had back taxes. I ain’t never told anybody this story. So I went to clean up the problem of back taxes.
$29,000 in back taxes was owed on this house. Whoa! Whoa! They said, ‘Mr. Carpenter, it looks like the…
um… people who held the mortgage on this thing just went ahead and paid ALL the back taxes on it.
You don’t owe any back taxes!” That was an issue.
There was a lean on the house for the guy who put a pool in the backyard and said he never got paid. And
I was going to have to walk into all that legal problem. I went and talked to that man. He dropped the lean!
I’m swimming in the pool. Y’all ain’t saying nothing. You know, some of you that are mad at my testimony, I
guarantee you if you would clap for my testimony and my breakthrough, God might just do something and
shake the stuff in your life that ain’t moving. I’ll clap for yours – why won’t you clap for mine? Okay?
I’ve got to get this one thing out of me because the concept will not be finished. The Bible says,
‘Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing’ by NOT the Logos… the RHEMA. This thing right here [Logos]
changes my mind, renews my process, gets my mind in things above.
But when this comes [Rhema], Faith comes.
I didn’t get faith for this house because I read in the Bible [Logos] God said He’s going to give Israel a
house. See, that’s in the Bible. But when I got MY Word [Rhema], that it was MINE, T H E N
I moved forward by Faith. Because Faith cometh by hearing. All of a sudden the stuff I needed in the inside
of me to pull this miracle off – I had by the Word of God.
