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.
I’m humbled, to find a place of integrity, where true, pure love exists; has not only a vision, but a mandate to “equip” the saints for the “work” of the ministry, is not only rare, but by the grace of God. To be going into the enemy’s camp and taking back what he’s stolen from you; doing The Great Commission; winning souls; seeing people’s lives changed (including my own), recognizing, having a hearing ear and a receptive heart to God’s awesome Word; getting this country back to God, is the only way to live in this day and age. You want to make a change? You tired of being sick and tired? Do you love this country? Do you have FAITH as a grain of a mustard seed? COME – JOIN – The Greatest army this world will ever see. Be a part of history. COME.. and HELP… reap this End-Time Harvest. You still have time!! You’ll be eternally grateful.
I am so glad to be here in the school. It is getting even better. Until I came to Tampa, I felt almost like a Muslim-Christian. Just lately I have been feeling the freedom and flow of the Spirit. Even after finishing the first year of school. I guess it takes a while to be detoxed spiritually! Pretty much up to that time I was religious and doctrineted properly. Even after the first year I was still not very open to the flow and the move of God. Over the summer break and God’s continuous work in my heart I came hungry and thirsty for this school year.
Especially the first week of school was awesome. Even the introduction of pastors was enough to smack me! We moved Tampa to basically to come to school. There is not any reason for us to live here other than the River really. But after being here it is more than enough reason to stay here! I often feel like about the school and church that i have found a treasure chest and want to share with everyone. We are telling our loved ones to come and even just sit under this ministry for a week and see what we are talking about.
It is so precious to me. I thank God for such man and women of God and their impact in our lives. Not only by teaching in the class but every way they live and conduct their lives. I have lot to learn from them.Thank God that he kept them for such a time like this and for us. I am so excited to see and receive what God has for me this year. i go to school with expectation every day. He has still a lot of work to do in me. You never know what will take place that day. Even just last thursday the Spirit of giving broke out and everyone was obedient to God. Some people even broke their alabaster box. I am looking forward to see might things happen this year in students life…..
