Born in Feilding, from Ngati Kauwhata with wakapapa ties to Takitimu/Tainui te Waka. In the wairua of the spirit Ariki lines we connect to the marriage of Uhenga Riki the brother of Tamatea Pokai Whenua ko Takitimu te Waka. Uhenga Riki married Taneroa of the Aotea Waka in Taranaki daughter of Rangitiratanga Turi Rongo Rongo. Both Waka have connections to Uenuku. Tainui the sacred carvings of Uenuku and Takitimu 75 AD Ko te Uenuku The Rainbow has no whakapapa preceding?
My time as a child with my Koro (grandfather) Hori Turanga Pito te Mataki was a Spiritual Healer and expansions of consciousness and realisation of the I AM presence, the current of immortal bliss from the heart up through the creative throat and upon the eye of the spirit in the forehead I became aware of the Holy Spirit the Wairua Tapu. We all as children are born with this realisation until the human constructs imprison us in their chaotic system away from our divine presence.
From a humble beautiful family I have been blessed. The pain of starving children dying every day I saw at 7 years this abomination on television. This obscenity in a world of absolute greed watered the field of charity immortal in my soul. I vowed on our sacred maunga (mountain) at 7 years old to help change this arrogance of pure evil. I was blessed to attend the Salvation Army, and the Ratana faith e te morehu (children of the four winds).
My mother worked from 4am to 9pm everyday so my brother and I could attend Scots College. Further education led me to Te Wanaanga o Raukawa where I learnt how to speak on the Marae and Whaikorero. I attained Diploma's in Marae based Studies and Maori Lore and Philosophy. I learnt of the truth of our New Zealand History that had never been told? The abominations upon our ancestors inspired me to complete a Degree in Visual Imaging at The Universal College of Learning, majoring in moving image film minor in Illustration I completed my Masters Degree at Massey University in 2018 in Maori Visual Arts completing a two hour documentary film called Te Pakeha God. The Exegesis Masters Thesis is now part of the Massey University Library. www.unclerick.co.nz I began writing illustrating books and film in 1988. The first book of Prophecy that came to me from the I AM presence of the spirit was finished on November the 8th 1989.
I met Ariki-Nui Kawenata on the 7th of November 2022. I learnt of Ariki that he was baptized at Ratana Paa having been taken from his parents by his grandparents at 3 months old. The first time we met was when he was 58 years old when he returned to Ratana Pa. That day the 7th of November I buried the last remains of my son who had died under the care of the hospital and a service was held with seven people with Ariki in the Ratana Temple. Later we viewed the Angels in the fields at Ratana.
1918, November the 8th was the day that Tahu Potiki Ratana was filled with the Holy Spirit. He said to his wife in 3 days you will know that the Holy Spirit is upon him. On the 3rd day the 1st World War ended as foretold by the Great Prophet on 11 November 1918.
In 2014 I learnt that the brother Ariki was murdered in Middle more Hospital by the Government, who were aware of the Love Governance System that would end their materialistic greed of mammon. Ariki-nui Kawenata died for 3 hours. The sacredness of the journey of Ariki's Spirit in the Heavenly Realms has Inspired myself and my new family in the Holy Spirit to move everyday towards glorifying the Father. We innerstand the sacredness of the Wairua Tapu.
I was ordained in the Ratana faith by George Kereama in 1998. The Prophecy is quite clear in Isaiah 41: 25 I will raise up one from the north and he shall come from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name.
Tahu Potiki Ratana also said in Te Whetu Marama..." When the lights go out at Ratana Paa you will look to the north. I have absolute faith in the Father, the creator of all things, that we are blessed, known to Kupe and the Waka.... descendants of the ancient people that we in Aotearoha New Zealand are the Light World and on the 23rd of September we will sanctify this with a divine Baptism, where Heaven and Earth become one, which is my mother's birthday Te Whaea Mataki.
The name of the Great Prophet Tahu Potiki Ratana's Wife was Te Whaea. God has marked my paths in the divine absolute. We return to the Waka of IO known to the ancient people as IO the name of God Father IO Supreme the creator of all material realms of Heaven, Earth and all eternal realms.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they are the children of God... Blessed are the pure in Heart for they shall see God. Love and Blessings Ricky Rua'k Ha-Kotesh
