“From the Heart” teaching by Drs. Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne.
Foundation Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:7-9
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
2 Corinthians 6:1
1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.
15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed fromMacedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In the Word of God, it is clear that partnership with a ministry is scriptural and it is not some new thing. God has ordained that people join up with ministries and hold up their hands. We are laborers together with the Lord. The anointing that is on this ministry comes into your life the moment that you partner with this ministry, because you become covenanted, or joined together with us, in helping spread revival around the world. You share in the same reward that the ministry receives. Every soul saved comes to your account. God notices every little thing that you do. He is not unrighteous to forget your labor of love.
Philippians 4:17 (Amp) says, “Not that I seek or am eager for [your] gift, but I do seek and am eager for the fruit which increases to your credit [the harvest of blessing that is accumulating to your account].” You have a heavenly bank that you can deposit into and if you can deposit, then you must obviously be able to withdraw.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Jesus said that where your treasure is, that is where your heart will be also. I am convinced that many people will be surprised when they get to heaven to see all that they laid up there because of their generosity down here on the earth. On the other hand, many will be disappointed because they did not do more for the kingdom of God.
Adonica and I would like to thank all of our partners, not only those at The River, but also those that have joined together with us from all over America, to pray for this ministry and to support us financially. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your commitment to the Lord and to us. Without you, we would not be able to see our dream – America being shaken by revival – come to pass. We love you – our friends and partners in the Lord.
