PROPHET KOBUS VAN RENSBURG
FOUNDER of SPIRIT WORD MINISTRIES
24 Oct 1952 – 21 Dec 2013
On 26th April, 1985 we resigned from the denomination and started Lofdal Ministries, which later became Spirit Word Ministries. In the year 2000, we started broadcasting and 4 years later we launched the Spirit Word Channel.
The vision keeps on expanding, all Praise and Glory to our King JESUS, who is THE CHRIST!
I was born 24th October, 1952, of a God-fearing mother, and loved the Lord Jesus from a young age, giving my life to God in an Evangelistic meeting on my 7th birthday.
Unfortunately, my High School days were spent in a hostel with the wrong friends, and I drifted away from Jesus. By the age of 19, I was caught up with smoking, drinking, drugs and stealing.
In 1971 I joined the South African Air Force and was soon transferred to the Navy to study Electronic Engineering and also to do an officers course.
I furthered my career at Atlas Aircraft Corporation.
Praise God! I met Jesus again, God never left me!
At age 24 I was back, surrendered to God, and within days was preaching on street corners and praying for the sick, God working through me with signs following.
At age 27 I went to a Pentecostal Bible School where I met my dear wife, Annalise.
Newly married, we set off into the mission field and saw great miracles and salvations.
We pioneered a few churches before taking the pastorate of an established church in Klerksdorp, North West Province, South Africa.
After 3 successful years, God kept on reminding me of the vision, explaining in detail, way back then, where we are at present, and what we are doing now.
John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
As time goes, revelation grows

CO-FOUNDER of SPIRIT WORD MINISTRIES
This statement makes life interesting, great and purposeful.
Eccl 3:1 states that there is a time and a season for every purpose under the sun, and we know that according to Isaiah 9:7, the Kingdom is ever increasing.
Stepping into God’s purpose for your life is to live in the now and make this day count.
To make every moment count is not you doing something, but you becoming something. This is the moment your road becomes the road that God travels.Your story fades and His story becomes the light on your path. I pray that my life will be an inspiration to many. In Christ every end is a new beginning. The Word is the light of this way in the Spirit and all I did was step into it, by submerging myself with the Word. On this path in the Spirit no time is lost, and when you step up into it, what happens is far above what you can imagine. The worst time in your life becomes the best.
The Word is Spirit and Life

The worst time in your life becomes the best.
I have traveled extensively, preaching and bringing life to others, in the darkest times in my life.
The last 3 years I have traveled abroad, 26 times for periods longer than 3 months at a time.
I have seen the Rockies, the northern lights, been stuck in snow, preached on a paradise island, traveled thousands of kilometers on the wrong side of the road, seen the most beautiful cities in Europe, been on the alps, but everywhere I go there is a hunger for the Word.
The hungriest group of people I found was in the center of the Amish community.
Imagine what God can do through you!
It is so amazing to experience the Spirit’s beckon and call. The crowds varied from 5 to 30 000.
The accommodation varied from sleeping on a mattress to staying in the best hotels and being dressed like a queen.
But His message stays the same and embraced by the hungry and thirsty.
The long stay-overs on airports gave me the time to write the book “Understanding Revelation” which is now printed in South Africa, India and USA.
Christ came to prepare us a place, a dwelling, and nothing can take that away from us
I love that place.
Remember, the best is yet to come!
