Drs. Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne are inviting local churches, the community, and members of government, in which many of them will be sharing their faith, and all nationalities to be a part of Celebrate America. We are celebrating America as she turns 238 years old.

I have seen the word of God work in my life since I was a child. I thank God I have a mom who made me go to Sunday school as a child. Even though she did not go she would drop me and my sister off and at young ages we both gave our lives to Jesus. We both still go to church to this day as a result. I wish I could say I followed the Lord all my days but I cannot. The time I remember the word having the biggest effect was when I was eighteen and had backslidden to the point that I didn’t believe in Him anymore. I was so tormented I couldn’t sleep at night. So I began to repent and cry out to Him. I wasn’t sure I was really saved until I spent hours and hours in the Word and change came. Even when I’ve fallen away He’s been faithful to bring me back. I would be totally lost without the Word. I wouldn’t have a clue how I should live. So today how I see the Word of God working is in the areas that the enemy snatched the Word away.
I really wasn’t taught to believe the Word of God for exactly what it says. Specifically, in areas of healing and prosperity and things it takes faith to believe for. But God is so faithful to plow deeper into the ground of my heart and replant those seeds. I’m so thankful He never gives up. God’s Word is true and means what it says no matter what I or man believes.
The word is alive and living on the inside of me. The word is truth and life and with that word planted on the inside of me, I have life more abundantly. We were created in the image of God; intended to walk in the authority and power given to us through the name of Jesus. This power and authority is utilized through the avenue of faith and becomes active and alive in us through the power of our spoken word. We, as individuals, are the single most important person the word can be spoken through to activate the power of God’s word in our lives. Our hearts must be tender, receptive and yielding in order for the seeds of God’s goodness and truth to take root in our hearts. Faith is believing that God’s word is true and knowing in our heart that whatsoever we ask of Him He will provide. Faith is more than just hearing God’s word with our ears; it is hearing His word in our hearts. Faith is a verb. An action on our part, stepping out and believing God is bigger than any circumstance; able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than what we could ask or think. He loves us more than we could imagine. Once we allow His word to take root in our heart it is important to nourish it with faith and cultivate it with more truth. Remaining grounded in the word of God will keep the seeds of His word firmly rooted and will ensure us to be healthy and strong in the things of God. We must be ever mindful of the power our words have over our circumstance and to not speak negatively towards our situation and uproot the seeds of faith we have planted in our hearts.
In 2009 Pastors Eric and Jennifer ministered at a camp meeting where I answered the call of God. When I got prayed for, the presence of God came so strong on me like I had never experienced before. I wept and wept from my guts as I literally felt things lifting off me like birds flying away.
That week I was also delivered from a spirit of fear that had tormented me almost my whole life. After those meetings I started watching the Anointing series and revival.com, and God began to set me free in my mind from strongholds and superstitions, and stir a greater hunger in me. I had been searching for the truth and the presence of God and I knew I finally found what I was looking for! The Lord had never been so real to me in my life.
A year later Pastor Rodney held meetings in my area and I felt the Lord telling me to come to Bible school to prepare for what’s coming. Even the very first week of school God touched my life in such an incredible way.
Every class felt like I was on God’s operating table as He has been doing a work in my heart and changing me. Right from the very first soul winning day God began to give me boldness to witness, where before I would shrink back. He has also been expanding the love of God in my heart for people more and more.
This whole year He has been breaking off layers of fear and condemnation. I’ve experienced the love of God tangibly like I never had before. God has set me free in my mind more and more through the truth of the Word that has been preached in the classes and services. The Lord has also been doing a wonderful work in my family and restoring my relationship with my parents.
There’s so much more I can’t even put adequately into words, I’m so overwhelmed with God’s goodness and so thankful He brought me to RBI……….Victoria D.
So as always we win! I have also held a baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues right there in parking lot as co-workers walked by murmuring. I have called up those who held offenses on my behalf and apologized to them by the Holy Spirit and allowed God to set them free through me. I have learned how to yield to the Holy Spirit and allow God to have his way. In doing so I signed up for bible school and was accepted with a scholarship praise God. I didn’t know how I was going to do it due to my work schedule not lining up and the hours just not being available in my position at that time.
Me and my husband just believed in God and said if it’s his will he will work it out. Well praise God he did! Not only did I get the hours I needed but I was blessed with a new position and being able to work from home! So here I am in my third week of Bible School here at RBI and Boy was I in for a very big surprise. Pastor John told us that when you get under the fire that things will come up that you did not even know was an issue and God will began to do a work on the inside of you. The Holy Spirit revealed to me while I was laid out under the anointing during RBI Revival service an image of Jesus crucified on the cross. I heard the Holy Spirit very clearly telling me to crucify myself daily. God was telling me the same way I sent my only begotten son as a sacrifice you have to sacrifice the things of this world for me.
These past 3 weeks of RBI teachings and downloads of the Holy Ghost and Fire has been indescribably supernatural.
I did not know if I was going to make it to school this year, but then in the last minute I finally got a breakthrough getting a job with a wonderful group of people. They worked around my hours, being that I told them that I was attending RBI, but the hours are steady. I am still having to trust God for one more thing; my transportation, but I am following after peace knowing he will make away. I’m learning to lean on spirit when wrestling with my mind, as it keeps telling me that I am incapable of doing the things set before me; never done that, never gone there, you will never do it. Then the Spirit of God roused within me and says; when you are weak, I am strong. That he will complete me in every area of doubt, insecurity, fear and my inabilities. I said wow Lord, there would be very little of me left. It will only be you, hallelujah. Thank you Jesus, thank you Heavenly father and thank you Holy Spirit.
The two weeks of the orientation revival at the revival weed of the bible school, something happen to me, I felt like something was lifting off of me. I felt like a lite large butterfly floating in the air getting free so I” felt I had to surrender all the way, I never felt like that before. God opened my eyes, I started to see things differently. The anointing was very heavy on me. Than one morning the lord the Lord broke out with the offering at the altar, Dr Rodney obeyed God about the offering , the students were coming to the altar putting all types of items on the altar.
I felt something drop in my spirit, I did not feel like the same person. I was shaking and crying, tears were running down my face and I couldn’t stop. God was touching me to give up the rings on my finger. I really love those rings, I pulled them off quickly, then I took the watch off my wrist, I could not help myself, then I ran back to the altar with my jubilee seed, then ran home to get more stuff. I felt like I was getting free, these two weeks of rival week put a very big change in my life. I grew up in the church, I went to a lot of churches. I never been to a church like this in my life.
Since 2007 I have been coming here I started to grow more and more each day, one morning I had a dream. That Jesus was carrying the cross on his back. I ask. Lord what are you trying to show me? So he gave me a project to do on salvation. So I went to office Depoe and it was about hittin the street day and knight.I remember you and your wife prayed for me over the phone in 2004. You had asked for my pray request, and my pray request was to move back to Tampa, and you told me that everything I ask for was going to come to pass.
As the first day of school began and the first week of revival, I continued to trust in the all mighty Lord and entrust all my faith upon him. I must admit the first two weeks of class it was very difficult for me, not s much because the work that would be involved but simply because there were things that were taking place that I was not use to seeing such as curtain ways that they praised God and worshiped, ways that the collected the offering, and just overall the way things were ran.
But as a minister used by God once said to me “sometimes those feelings of discomfort are not from the devil, they are just Gods way of pulling us out of our comfort zone and remolding us to the way and standards of the Lord”. After hearing those words echo in my head I realized that it truly was in Gods plan for me to be attending the RBI school and that it is through the school which God is going to mold e into the servant and soldier that he truly needs for his army to go out to the different nations and shake the corners of the globe with his mighty word and anointing through the knowledge that the Holy Spirit will help me acquire through this excellent school…..Luis S.
The last two days have been amazing! I think it would be safe to say that The River at Tampa Bay Church is a soul winners paradise. Sunday morning I almost came unglued when Pastor Rodney shared about the group of men who were in someones home watching football and when the game was over, while channel surfing, they stopped on the broadcast of our evening meeting. One of the men called the ministry to ask us to please explain what just happened to his three friends who were rolling on the floor laughing and crying.
Then, on Sunday evening I helped out in the phone room taking calls from people throughout the nation and around the world. The phones rang off the wall! There are so many hungry and hurting people out there. I led seven people to the Lord and prayed for an eighty-one year old grandmother who had sore knees. All the soreness left and she begin bending her knees and walking around the house praising God for what He had done for her.
Today I took a team soul winning in a very depressed neighborhood. Three people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. A man who had just gotten home from the emergency room was in so much pain he could hardly walk. We led him to the Lord and prayed for him. All the pain left his back. He was amazed. He said, “Now I can go back to work.” In only two hours we went door to door preaching the Gospel and prayed the prayer of salvation with seventy-six people. These are the days that were just a prayer and a dream only a few years ago. How awesome is our God! -Mary F
