What Is Celebrate America?

Drs. Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne, with Revival Ministries International, are looking forward to Celebrate America just as they did in the summer of 1999 when, for six weeks consecutively, they rented Madison Square Garden, the world’s most famous arena, for Good News New York!

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 239 years old. During Celebrate America, we will commemorate the Declaration of Independence and what the Constitution of the United States has meant to this land. We will celebrate the heritage of America and our Founding Fathers who acknowledged “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.” We will remember The Great Spiritual Awakenings of this land, the impact of which they made, and The Great Awakening that is soon to come. Celebrate America.

The Culture of the Kingdom

[And] there will be tribulation and anguish and calamity and constraint for every soul of man who [habitually] does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile). 10 But glory and honor and [heart] peace shall be awarded to everyone who [habitually] does good, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile). 11 For God shows no partiality [undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]. Romans 2:9-11 AMP

Jesus came to make all men equal in faith. No one man, or nation, is better than another in God’s eyes. All men stand naked before God. He knows everything about them – the good and the bad; and each one must come to God on the basis of faith – and not personal worthiness – because they have none of it.

For he is not a [real] Jew who is only one outwardly and publicly, nor is [true] circumcision something external and physical. 29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and [true] circumcision is of the heart, a spiritual and not a literal [matter]. His praise is not from men but from God. Romans 2:28-29 AMP

It is not the things we do outwardly that give us status with God, but it is the issues of the heart. To be a Jew “inwardly” is to believe in, and to submit to, God, and have faith like faithful Abraham.

For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:11-14 NKJV

There is no way to please God in the flesh, so your genetics and your heritage do not impress God. You cannot claim any special privileges because of your blood or your culture. Neither will you be turned away, merely on the basis of your lack of these things. Every man and woman must come to God on the basis of faith and covenant, humbly and thankfully receiving the grace purchased with the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:26-29 NKJV

Every person on the earth – no matter what their lineage, their station in life, or their sex – must come, and can come, to God on the same basis – faith in Jesus Christ.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Ephesians 2:14-18 NKJV

For through Jesus Christ, both Jews and Gentiles have access by one Spirit to the Father.

We preach Christ (the Messiah) crucified, [preaching which] to the Jews is a scandal and an offensive stumbling block [that springs a snare or trap], and to the Gentiles it is absurd and utterly unphilosophical nonsense. 24 But to those who are called, whether Jew or Greek (Gentile), Christ [is] the Power of God and the Wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 AMP

Trying to find God through your culture will not work and you cannot make your culture the reason why you cannot bow your knee to the King of kings. Every man, from every culture WILL bow to Him at the end. It is better to do it willingly now. You have to find Him in HIS culture and make His culture, your culture.

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. 8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. Colossians 3:1-11 NKJV

People use excuses for sin and ungodliness, believing that they can continue in certain practices, because it is “our culture”. However, the Word of God tells us that we are to drop everything from our “culture” that does not line up with the Word of God. We have a new culture – the culture of the Kingdom of God and of His son, Jesus Christ. We do not walk, talk, or act like anything else, but a blood-washed, born again, holy, child of God!

Amber S. Testimony

Since I have been here at Bible College the Lord has been providing for me financially and a place to live. I have not stretched my faith in such a way like I have since I came down to Bible College. God has healed my broken heart and taken away grief from losing my Mother last year. God has rekindled the flame that once had burned bright but through hardships in life went very dim. Growing up in church I knew God but I ran from my calling and God had his hand on my life in a powerful way. When Pastor Rodney came to my Grandfather’s church I was a young girl and when he laid his hands on me I never experienced the Holy Ghost like I did that night. When I was 16 I lived in Tampa with my Father and I remember sitting in the service seeing people with joy and thinking that it was crazy….little did I know I was going to get it a short time after, it was like the scripture talking about a strong and mighty wind and before I knew it I was on the floor laughing uncontrollably……that lasted from 10:30 pm until 2:00 am!!!! I had never experienced the joy until that night. I had got a touch from God but I didn’t have a change that needed to happen. Now being back and also going to Bible College has changed my life completely; I have been getting smacked with the fire from crying uncontrollably to laughing uncontrollably!! I have been out soul winning leading people to the Lord. I have a Holy boldness like never before and I love it. I thank God for using Pastor Rodney and Pastor Adonica to be lead by the Spirit…..Amber S.

David Testimony

This month has been really good, the Lord has been working.  I’m learning how to walk in love with people even when you feel that you are right.  The department that I am in will stretch you in many ways.  I am not a person that used to being on the phone.  I have no brothers or sisters, I’m the only child.  I was used to getting my way.  In pastoral, you are on the phone a lot; the Lord has done a quick work in my heart.  Now it does not bother me anymore so if you allow the lord to do the work he can use you in any avenue that is needed.  I just got back from a GAT that was awesome! The lord is definitely moving in churches across America.  Just like these GAT we’re having and the churches are allowing us to show them how to take cities.  This is the secret to ministry: humbling yourself.  The Bible says that “the meek shall inherent the earth”.  You look through the Bible and you see mighty men and women that turned the world upside down. How did they do it? By humbling themselves.  The exalted shall be humbled, and the humble shall be exalted.  The lord has a heart for the people that humble themselves.  This month was a very humbling experience for me, but the lord has exalted me because I didn’t complain or murmur. I just did what I had to do, thank you Jesus.

Michelle Testimony

As the end of my internship is coming closer, it feels like everything is just coming together. Obviously I’m not done learning, because as Pastor David likes to say, when you’re in the school of the spirit you never stop learning however old or long in the ministry you’ve been. But I do feel as though with everything that I’ve done during my internship, I’ve finally have begun to understand its use for me. For example, little things I had to do that I didn’t understand why I had to do them or what they had to do with ministry, I now understand that even those things will further help me be successful in not just ministry but in living a godly lifestyle. To me internship isn’t about a step towards launching out into ministry, but a step that I needed to take to be able to develop a godly character to live a godly life, so whether I go into full time ministry or just live a “normal” life that I can be an ambassador of Jesus Christ with that character and live a life glorifying him. Internship was very stretching, but in the end it is so rewarding. I realized that there’s nothing I cannot do with God. Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me.” That scripture was a core scripture for me during this last year of RBI. The word of God never fails. It’s been tried and proved many times.

Rachael Testimony

In this stage of my internship, the Lord is teaching me many things. Most of all, he is teaching me to be willing to do whatever He says and that He will provide for what He requires. I am currently preparing to go to Camp Morgan in April. It is a miracle in itself that I am going; because I said I would never go. I began trusting God for the finances to go as well as for supplies. The supplies have already been fully supplied! I also have multiple checks coming in the mail from various people to help pay for the tuition cost of Camp Morgan. I am learning more and more that God always provides! I have always said His will, His bill as I heard from classes at The River Bible Institute in previous years. Now, I am continuing to see this statement take place. As we decide to obey what God wants, he will always make a way; no matter how impossible it may seem, because with God all things are possible! In the past month, I have been getting a revelation of this verse. Even with it being a verse I have heard so many thousands of times, I am just getting the revelation of this Bible verse. Because God is my strength, and not I, in His strength I can do ALL things, not some things, or most things, but ALL things, and I am confident that this will become even more real to me during Camp Morgan

Brienna Testimony

Reflecting back on Wednesday’s message caused me to reevaluate myself.  The parable about the stony heart really hit home for me. I never thought that I was a person that could have a stony heart because I am most of all a loving, forgiving, and very positive person but I realized even though I walk in love physically some things had overcome me mentally. Not even knowing that this was one of the very things that kept me from receiving all that God had for me; I wasn’t in a position to hear clearly from the Holy Spirit or even receive the Word. I was letting situations and trials cause me to miss what God was trying to do.

As I sat in service I just sat in amazement how God has just used his people in different ways to pour into us.  Service was just the icing on the cake.  Since I have been at the church, I have been walking in victory through Jesus Christ in faith. I have been trusting in God and letting him lead. I am walking into everything that God has for me so I am going through a process which causes me to die to self daily. God is breaking me; humbling and working on my character. The Spirit is speaking to me through his Word and I feel a compete shift. One thing I have learned is if I yield to God and I am obedient to Him and His Word; my heart is right and open to receive, then he will do great and mighty things and use me to shake the nation. He is just equipping us for this movement; a mighty move of the spirit of God.

After every service or class, it’s like God is continuously releasing things that were once a mystery for six years to me. He is speaking through the Word; He is alive. Thank God he has willing vessels to teach us important principles that we need as we fight the good fight of faith.

Rodney Howard Browne – Grace Testimony

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has been teaching about the parable of the sower which Jesus taught to a large crowd of people, and then explained it in more detail to his disciples. What I have learned recently from this parable is that I have a responsibility when I hear the Word of God, whether from a teacher, pastor, or reading the Word on my own. When I receive God’s Word I have to protect it from the devil and make sure that he doesn’t steal my seed. I also have to establish root in God so I can have longevity in all things of God, which takes patience. One of the main things that stuck out to me was the seed sown among thorns. This is when you can hear the word, but the worries of this life choke the word.
