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.
