I’ve been attending services at the River Church since the 4th of July. I have had the privilege of being feed the word of God through Pastor Dr. Rodney Howard Brown and his amazing and loving wife Pastor Adonica Brown . I’ve been a born again Christian since I was 9 year old when my grandmother lead me on my knees to the Lord while visiting her in North Carolina. I have the honor as the only grandchild out of 15 grandchildren to carry her name (Nora Jane ) as my middle name as she named me Betty for my first name meaning consecrated to God. She was like the mother of Jesus, pure, holy, righteous, humble, meek, gentle, loving, giving, so Christ-like, and just beautiful inside and out.
I am looking for the chance to say the word to set God’s people free. I got what the people need, the word of God, I just saw like Pastor Rodney. I am forever changed by this Pastor Rodney, the sewer, is sowing.
The sewer, the one we are talking about here is Pastor Rodney how he is sewing the word to us. We are to make sure not to harden our hearts to receive it, we are to make sure not to get distracted and be a careless hearer, we are the ones to not allow the Devil’s work to get in our way of being a hearer and a doer of the word sown to us, and we will become unfruitful.
In 2009 Pastors Eric and Jennifer ministered at a campmeeting 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 soulwinning 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……….
