Before coming to the Bible school in August of last year I thought I knew God and thought my relationship with him was good enough. However, after being a part of this ministry for several months now I realized that I really didn’t have a relationship with God at all, but merely a knowledge of who he was and what I needed to do to get to heaven. From spending so much time in God’s word this year I have seen dramatic changes in almost every area of my life, however the most amazing change that I have seen is my life has been my boldness to speak the gospel freely and stand up for it among people who mock it. When I began to study the word on who I was in Christ, I received the revelation and relationship with God that I had always been longing. Since then I have been able to stand up against my family and people in my life that have mocked the gospel with the boldness and authority that I have in Christ Jesus. I knew for a long time that God had a calling on my life but I never had the boldness and authority to I needed in order to fulfill God’s call on my life. However, now that I have the knowledge I need through the study of God’s word I know with assurance that I have the ability and boldness to do anything God has called me to do through Jesus.
Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am a first year student and I must say that this school is nothing like I anticipated; it is much, much more. The bible comes alive because the Spirit of God is always there in the midst of us.
First of all I would like to thank God for my father in the Lord, Pastor Brown because he is a disciple indeed and faithful servant, and father in the Lord
I often prayed, God I want to come closer to you. At River Bible Institute you hear the word every day. It’s not just hearing it, when the word falls on good ground, it will produce fruit. We are put to work to bring in the harvest of souls, and help the poor. I was pressed and sometimes I actually wondered if I would really make it because I felt so inadequate, but the more I pressed and asked God to help me, He kept showing up. All of the teachers teach the word with power, and give assignments that will make you fall on your knees for help and cause you to dig deeper in the word for answers from the only one that can help you, God. The seed was sow and planted deep in my heart. Even when I felt like giving up, I couldn’t. I asked God to anoint my ears because I want to hear, understand and take heed to His word. I love reading books, but I had stopped reading like I had in the past, now every semester we have books to read. We have five books to read in this semester. It is challenging, but very rewarding.
If you have ear to hear you will grow, because faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God which is full of power. The opportunities at RBI are endless, and you are not held back.
his past month has been a huge blessing to my life. I have grown and been shaped in so many ways, while coming to the end of the school year. May Minister’s and Leader’s Conference has been amazing. It has taught me how important it is to prepare for eternity and set my spirit in place to be strong in the future. It has also showed me how much we must pray for America and for the souls of the lost. There are many unholy people in our government and in politics and in leadership in this country. And I see so much more now, how important it is for the righteous to stand together in unity, prayer, finances, and boldness in this hour that we are in. I feel very close to eternity. Being a part of this ministry and sitting under the anointing and the powerful teachings of Pastor Rodney has prepared me and equipped me for a lifetime of living in the Spirit. The principles of sowing and reaping taught by Pastor Corey this week was also life changing. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we are rich! The wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just and we receive it now! Being an intern has taught us so many things about finances in the ministry – beginning with living on faith and trusting God. He has supernaturally come through for us in everything and now, there is nothing that we cannot come into agreement on and believe Him for!
