Winter Camp Meeting week here at the River, what can I say? Wow! What an awesome experience to see people from all backgrounds and walks of life come together for the same purpose! To press into and hear from God the plan He has for us in this hour! What has been exciting to see is the teamwork, and the precision with which the team has worked together. I am beginning to realize even more phrases such as “there are no big I’s in the body of Christ”, or phrases such as “there are no islands in the body of Christ”.
We are part of each other! It is going to take the whole team in America and the world to do the job at hand! We must work together, and for the same purpose! The harvest is at hand, it will take everyone working together to fulfill this great task! Ephesians 4:16 now has new meaning. A joint is something that joins together, not separates! I am beginning to see how we must promote teamwork at all levels, from the pulpit ministries down to all others. I believe the current and future move of God in the earth will be in and through the people of God who have this attitude and who enforce it in their lives!
We cannot allow one member to suffer! We cannot allow one member to be weak! We must strengthen and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ. If they are weak, so are we! If they suffer, so do we suffer also! Pastor Rodney has been teaching all week on the subject of the Anointing and I see more than ever the need for the increase in teamwork in order to be able to see an increase of the Anointing! -Jeremy W.
But I want you to take your Bibles now and turn to Proverbs chapter 31. Proverbs 31 describes a mom and it will set the stage for the remainder of this study, of this lesson on mother love because we’re gonna find out that God has placed mother love in the hearts, in the lives of moms for a dynamic reason.
I am wondering what is one word that I can use to describe the Great Awakening, and there are so many that come to heart – intense, momentum, just to name a few. This is just the beginning and as I have been coming to the services for these few days, I realize that God is doing something on the inside of me that I can’t yet describe or put into words. It’s exactly like trying to choose one word to describe the Great Awakening, I really don’t know what to tag it as but I do know just like the Great Awakening, speaking in terms of the meetings, that God is doing something on the inside that is not quite seen in the natural.
Night after night Pastor Rodney mentions that we don’t understand the magnitude of what is taking place in the mass audience of people that we don’t see in the sanctuary, but the anointing is going forth into people homes and destroying yokes, setting people free, healing, delivering, shaking, and awakening people to the things of God and mobilizing them to go get the end time harvest. Likewise that’s what I believe that is taking place on the inside of me, it seems like chaos and things are moving slow or maybe just not the way I think it should in the natural, but I keep being reminded of the scripture in Romans 8:28 “For we know that all things work together for good…” Yes it is like every meeting there is a download that is taking place that the effects of, which I can’t grasp now, will resound in the days to come. – Terrance S.
Let’s read Proverbs 31 verse 25. Verse 25 says, “She is clothed with strength and dignity”. Well, who clothed her? God.
Every week, the revival meetings just keep getting better and better. The phone ministry has truly touched my life. You don’t know how many people are watching the meetings on CTN until you receive the calls. For every phone call we receive, there are 5,000 people watching. With an average of 500 phone calls a night, that means half a million people are watching nightly! Jesus is coming soon because when the whole world hears the gospel, the end shall come. This is an exciting time to be at The River Church! We are some much bigger than just Tampa, Florida.
We have people calling and watching from all over Europe and United States. I had one call yesterday from a woman that was touched through the television. Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne prayed for all those dealing with depression to be set free. He made each person raise their right hand and when the woman raised her right hand, she started shaking. All of a sudden, she fell on the floor. When she got up off the floor, she said she felt like a weight came off her shoulders. There is such power through the airwaves. We all need to take advantage of the authority we have through Christ Jesus. This is about all nations coming together to serve one Lord and to add to the kingdom of heaven. This is not a church thing but a soul thing. Let’s all make it our goal to win souls for Jesus! –Shani G.
God’s the one that gives her this incredible mother love. Verse 25 says, “she can laugh at the days to come.
