NO MORE JUDGEMENT

Pastor Rodney Howard Browne describes these important scriptual foundations.

Foundation Scripture: John 3: 14 – 21(Amp)

14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert [on a pole], so must [so it is necessary that] the Son of man be lifted up [on the cross],

15 In order that everyone who believes in Him [who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him] may not perish, but have eternal life and [actually] live forever!

16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world, that He even gave up his only begotten (unique) Son, that who ever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

17 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.

18 He who believes on Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgement; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation – he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.]

19 The basis of the judgement (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil.

20 For every wrongdoer hates (loathes, detests) the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works (his deeds, his activities, his conduct) be exposed and reproved.

21 But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light, so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are – wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him].

Dr. Rodney Howard Browne points out that the Gospel is a simple message, but it is way too simple for some people. People try to make it complicated. They labor under the mistaken belief that it cannot possibly be so easy. So they try to make it harder, they try to create rules and regulations for people to keep in order to earn God’s favor.

The bottom line of the Gospel is this – the world is under a sentence of judgement already and Jesus came to lift that sentence. The devil would like us to believe that God loves sending people to hell and that He has made it very hard to get to Heaven. The lie is that God is not a fun ‘guy’, but the devil is a fun guy. People declare that they would rather go to hell and party with the devil, than be in boring, restrictive heaven. Or they believe that there is no hell and no judgement, that we all go to heaven because of our good works and that any religion is right because it is the same God that we all worship.

This important point.. Well, there is only one true God – “I AM THAT I AM”. He has testified through the ages to His own existence and His plan for man. If we do not serve or worship Him the way He tells us to – not the way mere men tell us to – then we are not worshipping Him at all. The truth is that this earth was once filled with His presence and it was a paradise. The liar, the devil, deceived man and caused him to sin and to lose the presence of God and without God’s divine intervention, we were all doomed to eternal hell. Jesus came to save us from the destiny we were headed for. He came to change our destiny, to give us the opportunity to come back into the presence of God for all eternity.

All believers to know that Jesus did not come to judge us – because we were already judged. He came to remove the sentence of judgement and allow us to live as free men. If men die and go to hell it is because they have chosen their own sentence, not because God has willed it for them. God’s will for us is that none should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

Rise up!

Foundation Scriptures James 4:13-15: Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a city; and spend a year there and carry on our business and make money. Yet you do not know the least thing about what may happen tomorrow.What is the nature of your life? You are really but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears into thin air. Rodney Howard Browne asks this question.. what does the future hold? This is the question for which everyone of us would like an answer.Ifit is not on our lips, it has been in our thoughts, especially as we close out one year and begin another.Not only that, but in a few short years we will close out a year, a decade,a century and a millennium!Into the twenty-first century we go – for some people a frightening prospect – but as for us , we don’t fear the future because we know who holds the future, His name is JESUS.

Rodney Howard Browne remembers a song that was very popular in the 60’s and 70’s, called “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”We can know that He has us in the palm of His hand.He is with us, he will never leave us nor forsake us . He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.The bible says that in the last days, men’s hearts will fail them for fear of the things that are coming.Aren’t you excited, that you and I can have peace, knowing that God felt that you had what it takes to live in this day and this hour because He allowed you to be in the kingdom for such a time as this.You’ve been made out of the right kind of stuff.You are just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.Even though you go through the fire it will not burn you.Even though the circumstances look bleak, if you trust Him, He will bring you through.

As the Body of Christ we need to know that we don’t consult psychics (a.k.a. the devil) for our future.We have God’s Word and His Holy Spirit to lead us and to guide us.He will show us the things to come.I predict that this year, known from heaven, as a year of blessing and a year of grace – when each of His children will see His face, clearer than they have ever seen it before. So clear that they cry out for more. More ofJesus, less of me.No longer in my ability, but in the power of the Holy Ghost.I and my loved ones in the Lord will boast.A year of gladness, a year of singing, a year that the heavenly joy bell keeps ringing.A year that prepares us even more for our glorious homecoming on that GoldenShore.Rejoicing we go, knowing that His goodness and mercy He’ll show.In all of our lives and circumstances we’ll be blessed and protected from the enemy’s advances.

Rise up in this hour and see the salvation of the Lord with a great demonstration of power. We commit to do His plan and to do His will.No matter where He leads, we will be still, knowing that His Glory, knowing that His grace will definitely shine upon us as we finish the Race.

May 15 2008: Great Awakening Tour

After watching Todd Bentley on God TV, I heard Rodney say “Revival isn’t just for you to feel good, but 2008 is a year of mass mobilization of the Body of Christ . . .” He talked about the Great Commission and that you must have an ignited people to go to the streets. “I want to be ignited,” I thought. I also heard a woman give her testimony about witnessing following the script, and how a Muslim man was saved as she stuck to the script. “What is this script she was talking about?” I found it online at your web site and began printing it up in each of the languages as we have connection with the international students at the university here. Your words birthed something in me, and I am so excited to hit the streets together with my kids!

Good News New York, Madison Square Garden 1999

In the summer of 1999, Drs. Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne came to New York City, to conduct one of the largest soul winning crusades since the 50s.

It began in February of 1998. While conducting a series of meetings in Ozark, Alabama, Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne had a supernatural dream in which he was talking to Dr. Billy Graham. In the dream, Dr. Graham was talking to Dr. Howard-Browne about a crusade he had conducted in 1957. He had rented Madison Square Garden for what started out to be a six week crusade and went for three and a half months. During this time in New York, two million people attended the meeting at the Garden and 55,000 decisions were made for Christ.

While Dr. Graham was speaking to him in the dream, Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne began to weep over New York and America. When he awoke in the morning, his pillow was soaking wet with tears. The moment his feet touched the floor, he knew that he had to go to New York City and launch one of the biggest soul-winning crusades since the 50s.

The crusade, called Good News New York ran from July 7-August 14, 1999. It was six weeks of nonstop soul-winning on the streets during the day and a soul-winning service every night at Madison Square Garden. We spent over $6.7 million to fund the crusade. We were not the first ministry God spoke to, to do a city-wide outreach in New York City, and even though we are not a big ministry and we did not have the finances or the support needed for an outreach of this magnitude, we decided to trust God and go ahead and obey His call and His mandate. In spite of a lack of cooperation from most New York churches and even outright opposition, we went ahead with the outreach and the Lord blessed us and helped us.

Five thousand volunteers from 36 states and 22 countries came to share the love of God with the people of New York City. We handed out over 13 million tickets, in eight different languages, with free admission to Madison Square Garden. We witnessed on the streets, from the penthouse to the crack house in all five boroughs of New York City. We also gave away 250 tons of food.

And the greatest part of all – we saw over 48,459 people accept Jesus into their heart.

This was a city-shaking event from which we are still hearing testimonies.

In the light of recent events in New York City – the terrorist attack on New York and the destruction of the Twin Towers with the resultant loss of life – we know why the Lord placed this urgency in our hearts to conduct this crusade in 1999 and not wait until we had the necessary resources in our hands before we moved to do it. Since 1999, several New York churches, motivated by our example, have been conducting regular outreaches and the soul-count in New York has continued to rise. Hallelujah.

The Vision of GNNY
1. Rent Madison Square Garden for a period of six weeks in the summer of 1999.
2. Launch one of the biggest efforts in street evangelism, with teams from all over the world. These teams, in an organized effort, will evangelize the five boroughs of New York City.
3. Contact 32,000 churches in a 250-mile radius of the city and invite their participation.
4. Train 25,000 workers to fill the need for ushers, choir members, altar workers and other workers and volunteers.
5. Distribute Bibles, tracts, clothing and food by the tons.
6. Reach the political world in the region with the Good News.
7. Reach into the business world with the Good News.
8. Reach into the private sector with the Good News.
9. See every area of the city shaken for Jesus.
10. See the Good News proclaimed throughout the city through every available means: TV, radio, billboards, buses, subways, posters and handbills.

 

GREAT AWAKENING TOUR, CITY #25

I went to a lady in the hospital-told her I was from church and I asked her if anyone had ever told her that God loves her, she said no that no one had even visited her. I went through script, she received Jesus then afterwards she said that she was thankful I stopped by. It was awesome because she had been in a church and was backslidden. Theresa B.

Live What you Believe

When we first visited The River at Tampa Bay with Rodney Howard Browne, we were very interested in what his doctrinal beliefs were. Of course, many opinions were circulating and we wanted to know the truth. It just “happened” that every night for the next week we were taught at his Bible School what he believed and the doctrinal stance of his ministry. By the end of the week, my husband turned to me and said, “Rodney Howard Browne believes exactly what we do except for one thing. He lives it!” And isn’t that “true” believing–living it? The Bible says in James that faith without works is dead.

If we truly “believe” the Word of God, then we should truly “live” it! Dr. Rodney believes and lives the Word and teaches others to do the same. His faith is alive! For more teachings log onto Rodney Howard-Browne and Revival Ministries.

Unbelieving Believers

My husband and I were raised in churches that “believed” in miracles. The problem was that we rarely saw any. Most people that were prayed for were not healed or did not receive a miracle in their body. Consequently, we taught what the Bible said about miracles but became “unbelievers” in our minds.When we came to Florida to ”check out” Rodney Howard-Browne and his ministry, the first services we attended were healing services. Each night we witnessed miracles. The first night, we saw a lady healed of cancer. She was at the point that it was in her brain, her speech was extremely slurred, and she couldn’t even count to ten anymore. After Brother Rodney ministered to her, he told her to do something she couldn’t do and she immediately counted to ten and her speech was no longer slurred! The second night a lady with a withered leg was healed–the heel of her foot touched the floor for the first time in her life (she was about 20 years old and had undergone YEARS of therapy and had never had her heel touch the floor ever before!) The third night a man on oxyen that had emphysema got healed and ran around the building–free of the oxygen machine! Normally, he couldn’t have walked ten steps without passing out!What wonderful things to witness. These nights changed us forever. We became true believers!

The Great Awakening to Sweep America!

Rodney Howard Browne and his team of revivalists have already “woken up” thousands of people around the U.S.  This week he will be in Gainesville, Florida.  And the next few weeks he will be in Florida and Georgia.  Check out his itinerary at A great awakening with Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, then go to one of the meetings.  You’ll never be the same again!

Thoughts on Soul Winning

When people give their hearts to Jesus, they want to tell everyone what happened to them because He is so wonderful and they know an incredible thing has happened to them–they have become a “new creation.”  When they begin to tell of their experience, it is sometimes difficult to help others “sign on the dotted line.”  This is where the soul-winning script that Revival Ministries with Rodney Howard Browne comes in handy.  It keeps the message on track and helps to actually lead another person to Jesus Christ and commit their life to Him.
