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.

Follow His Plan

Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 19 By this we shall come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we are of the Truth, and can reassure (quiet, conciliate, and pacify) our hearts in His presence, 20 Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him]. 21 And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence (complete assurance and boldness) before God, 22 And we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we [watchfully] obey His orders [observe His suggestions and injunctions, follow His plan for us] and [habitually] practice what is pleasing to Him. 23 And this is His order (His command, His injunction): that we should believe in (put our faith and trust in and adhere to and rely on) the name of His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and that we should love one another, just as He has commanded us. 24 All who keep His commandments [who obey His orders and follow His plan, live and continue to live, to stay and] abide in Him, and He in them. [They let Christ be a home to them and they are the home of Christ.] And by this we know and understand and have the proof that He [really] lives and makes His home in us: by the [Holy] Spirit Whom He has given us. 1 John 3:18-24 AMP

We receive from the Lord whatever we ask, because:

We watchfully obey His orders and observe His suggestions and injunctions.

We follow His plan for us.

We habitually practice what is pleasing to Him.

By this we come to know (recognize and understand) that we love the children of God: when we love God and obey His commands (orders, charges) — [when we keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and His teaching]. 3 For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous). 1 John 5:2-3 AMP

The true love of God is this:

That we do His commands

That we keep His ordinances

That we are mindful of His precepts and teaching

This is the Lord’s order – His command; His injunction:

That we should believe in – put our faith and trust in and adhere to and rely on – the name of His Son Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

That we should love one another, just as He has commanded us.

The Lord’s commands are not irksome, burdensome, oppressive, or grievous. He asks us to believe in Him and to love people – all people – not just the ones you like. If you call yourself a child of God; if you say that you love Him; then it should not be a hardship for you to obey His commands and to follow His plans for you. It’s not like He is asking you to do some impossible thing. His commands are a hardship to the carnal mind and the flesh, but if you are truly a child of God and the Holy Spirit lives in you, then the love of God has already been shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). He makes it easier; He makes it second nature to you.

How do we know that we are on the right track? We listen to the Holy Spirit, who speaks to us through our own spirit, or conscience. From the moment you are born again, the Holy Spirit will begin to direct you into the Truth, if you will listen and obey. Follow the peace in your heart. Only do what the peace in your heart tells you to do. If you feel “scratchy” – change course. If you feel peace, keep going in that direction. Obey the Holy Spirit’s conviction. Stop, repent, turn around, and follow the path laid out for you by the Word of God. The more you train yourself to obey God, rather than your carnal mind and will, the more you come to truly know Him and the more you realize that His path is the path of peace, joy, righteousness, and blessing.

Do not serve God merely in theory or in speech (lip-service), but in deed and in truth – in reality, in practice, and in sincerity. When we keep His commandments, we make our home in Him and He makes His home in us. Some believers only “visit” Him, and He can only “visit” with them. Jesus does not only want to visit you occasionally, He wants to live in you permanently.

And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. 15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him. 1 John 5:14-15 AMP

If we expect an answer when we ask anything, or make any request of Him, it needs to be made according to His will, and in agreement with His own plan. Many prayers are not answered, because they are not prayed in line with God’s word, or because the person praying is living in disobedience to God’s commands. This is disrespectful to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. You cannot serve the devil and your own carnality, and expect God’s blessing.

Line up with His plan for you, and He will be able to move on your behalf and grant your requests.

Adrian R. Testimony

Since coming to RBI, there have been many challenges that I have had to face.  Moving far from home to a new area with no support system that I once had, was hard in itself. I have learned that there is a completely different culture here that I have to adapt to, new people and different viewpoints. But this is a critical time in my life; God has sent me out on my own to take that next step in my Faith, so the challenges are only going to grow me into a better leader. The pastors here have taught me so much in just a short time, and I am blown away by all I’m learning. I have had a hard time here, but I had an awesome encounter one Wednesday night at Student Ministries when Pastor Allen prophesied over my life. It was confirmation that I am called to be a youth pastor and this is my new season to grow and let go of some things I’ve been clinging on to. It’s so awesome to see what God has been doing in such a short time with me at RBI, I can’t wait to see the change in me at the end of this year….Adrian R.

Jeffrey Testimony

The word of God will change your life. Listen to the word of God about sowing and reaping. It teaches us where to sow and where not to sow, there are different grounds to put seed in. Every ground is not good ground. When you learn to put your seed in good ground you can get thirty, sixty, one hundredfold blessing back. Jesus teaches us in Matthew 13 how to sow, and where to sow.  I know since I have learned this principal of sowing and reaping, I have been blessed. I have seen many miracles in seed time and harvest. One testimony is I have sowed fifty dollars and reaped over five hundred dollars. When you sow normal seed you have to water your seed. So when I sowed the cash I wrapped faith around it. My water was the scriptures. Every seed produces after its own kind. When you learn about seed time and harvest, you learn even your words are seeds. Seed will take you all around the world. We should live off of our seed. Whatever out of your mouth you say is where you will be. Also, when you sow negative stuff, you will reap negative stuff. Seed time and harvest has no limits, it has no boundaries. When I learned about the parable of sowing and reaping, it changed my life. I live off of the seed, every time I sow seed God always brings a harvest.

Robert A. Testimony

It’s been a huge blessing since I’ve come back for my second here at the river bible institute. Last year was a huge blessing doing the river school of worship. It was great being able to experience and learn everything about worship and music. So last year was absolutely a great blessing and throughout last I led 170 souls to Christ so it was a great time. And it’s great to be back, Tampa is a great place. Once I got off the plane after I landed I was really excited, thinking about everything that God was going to do this year. And this year I’ve been experiencing Jesus in awesome ways.

Been really plugging in and seeking all that God has for me. And I’ve got a really great feeling that this is going to be my year. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I got a great feeling that I’m going to be doing all kinds of stuff for God. I know he has called my name, and I’ve been seeking his will since I was 15 and I’m 22 now. And I know Gods going to send me around the world doing all kinds of ministry things. Lately God has been revealing himself to me in amazing ways. And I really feel deep in my spirit that God is calling me to do music ministry.

Music is the gift that God has given me, and I knew by the time I was 15 what I felt God wanted me to start doing. And I started singing and than started playing not long after that. And I’m really passionate about the gifts he has given me. And he has really given me the ability to play and sing rock music. And I really enjoy using it for his glory and lift up his name. And I also feel that he wants me to preach as well. So I’m so excited and thrilled for what God is still having me do, and everything else he is going to have me do. And I’m really looking forward to traveling the world preaching the good news of Jesus Christ. God bless…..

Marty L. Testimony

ince the start of school and the river school revival at R.B.I. the Lord has made some major changes in me. I have made a decision to press into the things of God like never before. It actually started in my second year at R.B.I. I had made a decision then to do whatever the Lord told me to and the result was awesome blessings from the Lord. As I have made myself available to him, he has made himself more available to me also. He is growing my faith and showing me who I am to be in Him, a strong prayer warrior in the call center for this year is just the start of his ministry for my wife and I.

I am becoming more and more patient and more humble before the Lord. I am also finding myself becoming more hungry and thirsty for the things of God. This is my third year in R.B.I. and God is showing me how to take everything that comes my way, the good the bad and the ugly and to use these things to my advantage, to learn from these circumstances to flow in the Holy Ghost and take it all in stride not in strife. I never thought I would have come back to R.B.I. after my first year back in 05-06 but the Lord has a way of making us see things his way.

(Thank you Jesus!) the best decision of my life so far was coming back to R.B.I. for my second and now third year. This is just the start of the school year and I am so exited to see what God is doing in not only my life but so many new students that have stepped into the call that God has placed on their lives it is going to be a Great year at the River Bible Institute. Thank you Pastor Rodney and Adonica and all the Pastoral staff at the River, you are a Great blessing to everyone you Minister to…..

Christa J. Testimony

I never thought I would sit where I am currently sitting, or know God how I know him, or for that matter even be alive if it weren’t for the effect that Revival Ministries International has had on my life, and the lives of my family. I thank God for Pastors Rodney and Adonica.

I came to live in Tampa two years and one month ago. I moved here with my mom shortly after my father passed away. My dad was a pastor of a Rhema church in Kissimmee Florida. It was a sudden and devastating loss; I was only sixteen years old at the time. I grew up in a Pentecostal church my entire life, but I had never fully received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and I really did not know God. I knew about God but I never knew him as my Heavenly Father. I thought I had a free ticket into heaven because my father was a pastor. I was oblivious to the truth.

When I was 15 years old, my dad, my sister and I went to the Great Awakening Tour in Miami Florida. One night after the service my dad and my sister and I got a chance to talk to Pastor Rodney. While we were talking he told my sister and I that if we ever wanted to attend RBI or RSW that we would have scholarships.

I picked up an RSW pamphlet and started talking to my dad about how I would love to go there one day, but that I wanted to go to Rhema like he did. I had other plans for my self but God knew what he was doing. When I got the scholarship I had no idea that I would one day end up living in Tampa while my mom would attend RBI. Christa J.

Denise P. Testimony

As I drove into The River Church for the first time on Sunday evening, August 21, 2011, I knew I was driving into destiny.  Revival for bible school was to start the morning of August 22, 2011 and I wanted to get a glimpse of what was to come.  God had been preparing me all of my life for His work but I didn’t realize it until a few months prior when I heard about the River Bible Institute.  I had no plans to attend bible college, I worked for a banking corporation for over 7 years here in Florida and prior to that I worked for an entertainment company in New York City.  The Lord spoke to my heart back in March of this year and told me to quit my job because I didn’t belong there but I didn’t have a clue at that time where He was leading me.  As I prayed and was seeking direction, the Lord started showing me the River Bible Institute and opened the doors for me to attend.

In these past three weeks I have realized that life is not what it appears to be, there is so much more that I need to learn and understand.  I’ve realized that the Lord loves us very much; we were made in His image and purchased with a price.  God doesn’t desire anyone to be lost, sick or in despair, He wants to show us the way and Jesus is the only way.

And guys, we check out at this point. There’s no parallel to that feeling of being kicked from the inside, not gas, not angina, not heartburn, nothing can take the place of that.
