Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne and his wife Adonica are the founders of Revival Ministries International, The River at Tampa Bay Church, and River University in Tampa, Florida. They travel about 46 weeks of the year, holding weekly meetings in cities across North America and in 85 nations worldwide. Their commission is to win the lost and to awaken the Church to fulfill the Great Commission. On December 1, 1996, Drs. Rodney and Adonica founded The River at Tampa Bay Church, a multi-racial church representing a cross-section of society from rich to poor, from all nations, and bringing people to a place of maturity in their Christian walk. River University, which started as River Bible Institute in 1997, consists of River Bible Institute, River School of Worship, River School of Government, River Bible Institute Español, and River School of the Bible Online.

I believe we stand on the brink of a Third Great Awakening, a revival that will result in the greatest harvest of souls the world has ever seen.

The Manifesto

The “antichrist” system, operating through the WHO, the UN, and governments worldwide, have mocked the Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

They have done this by arbitrarily shutting down the Church, by not acknowledging or recognizing the Church as an essential service, by openly discriminating against, and even persecuting, the Church. In their arrogance and godlessness, they have attempted to neutralize the Word and power of God and to mute the voice of the Church—the voice of Righteousness and Truth.

They ignore or belittle the teachings of Jesus Christ.
They mock the Word of Almighty God; the Blood of Jesus; the power of the Holy Spirit; the power of our worship; Psalm 91, the saving, keeping, and preserving power of God; the power of Communion, the table of the Lord, the body and blood of Jesus; the doctrine of laying on of hands; the commandment to gather together; the power of unity and prayer of agreement.

So, with the Stand, like Elijah, we mock the prophets of Baal; we mock the mainstream media; we mock those who oppose and resist Almighty God.
They will fall and fail—every one of them.

We stand for the Word of God and for billions around the world whose rights to worship freely were removed and have not been, or perhaps will never be, restored.

We stand for the hundreds of millions who are dying of starvation, because of this ill-advised, unwarranted lockdown.
There is a virus, as there have been in the past; however, there is no justification for the draconian steps taken by governments to “keep us safe.”
Which, as it turns out, were contrary to the advice of scientists and epidemiologists—experts in pandemics and immunology.
The percentage of deaths has been low, compared to the recovery rate; and even lower compared to the number of people who are, and will be, adversely affected for years to come, as a direct result of the loss of jobs, businesses, the destruction of their economies, and the loss of personal freedoms.
Many more people are at risk of dying, or have already died, because they have been denied medical care for other ailments.

Our stand, on this field, represents the dreams of billions of people, world-wide.
We stand to see all the nations of the earth opened back up—with no blackmail of the citizenry—through forced participation in tracking apps, mandatory vaccines, or the threat of permanent loss of their freedoms and rights.
Governments serve people—people are not obligated to serve governments.

Our rights are given to us by Almighty God.
We are not slaves—we are free people.
We stand to see the restoration of the people’s liberties—to live and die at their own risk.

We will stand and worship, according to Psalm 150—with voices and singing and musical instruments: wind instruments, string instruments, and percussion instruments.
We will stand and obey the Great Commission.
We will stand and preach the Gospel and the Truth of the Word of God.
We will stand and lay hands on the sick and cast out demons.
We will stand and baptize converts and dedicate babies.

Stand with us!

And may this field—this stand—be duplicated, through God’s people, in all fifty states and every US territory, and in every country of the world.
