Thank you for reaching out with a welcome! Shock was somewhat of an understatement because I’ve been listening to Ravi for only about several months now. His assurance of God’s promise and word have reached me like none before! I was raised in the Catholic Church, have attended numerous conferences from Joyce Meyer, Creflow Dollar, Jessie Duplantis, Ken & Gloria Copeland and Jerry Savales when they had the West Coast Conference in Anaheim! Yes, without a doubt I have learned from them all and been blessed by their teachings and increased my understanding of God, but Ravi has reached my soul and encouraged my spirit rise up and take authority over my flesh & blood! Listening to Ravi has changed how I perceive and view the Bible and increased my understanding of how God desires me to live my life. In the moment I understood that my flesh & blood were controlling my life is in the same moment I realized that i must live this physical life, but as my spirit! My spirit is who I am! I am a spirit created by God living a physical existence in this earthly body!
Since my spirit has risen to a place of authority, my life has changed immensely! I converse with my spirit and follow what my spirit urges and nudges me toward (of course with prayer and long conversations with God!). Ravi has taught me to isolate my flesh from spiritual decisions and discussions with God. To me this is the meaning of being “Reborn” or “Rebirthed” is learning to journey through life with my spirit as my guide and compass!
Ravi became my Sunday morning church and I will miss him! I will look forward to reading his writings, watching him on Youtube, connecting on the site, and reading those people he mentions as teachers of the Word! I consider myself blessed that my path crossed Ravi’s and believe that God had everything to do with it. I feel Jesus’s hand reaching out to me to journey back to Him and seek Him only with vigilance! Ravi has been the fire igniting my spirit! I will always be thankful for this time in my life and look back knowing that this was without doubt a turning point and milestone in my journey! I’m sometimes feel like Saul who before becoming Paul was misdirected about the journey!!!
God Bless You and Keep You Always…
P.S. - a tribute to Ravi was the first order of business once I logged into the site! My prayer is the family finds peace knowing the Ravi will be with the Father…!!!
