AFTER ATTENDING community college for two years, Fabian McCune was frustrated and discouraged. He had just failed an exam in a subject he was proficient in. But while sitting in class, he heard the Lord say, "This is not where you're supposed to be." At that moment, he knew he was supposed to attend Rhema Bible Training College.
Fabian left the college in Michigan. Within two months, he was accepted to RBTC and living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Having attended Word of Faith International Christian Center in Southfield, Michigan, Fabian was familiar with Kenneth E. Hagin and Rhema. The pictures he had seen in The Word of Faith magazines growing up were now a reality. "I felt like I had reached the Promised Land. I felt at peace," says Fabian.

THE BIBLE IS a mystery book until we find the key that opens it. Then it stops being a mystery and becomes a message. Two words open the Bible to our understanding, and they are life and death.
Death has been a mystery in all ages. Science stands mute in its presence, unable to explain it. Philosophy turns poetic when it meets this dreaded enemy of man. Theology has dealt only in generalities when attempting to explain it.
Winter Bible Seminar & Rhema Homecoming 2018
THOUSANDS GATHERED for Winter Bible Seminar and Rhema Homecoming 2018. Despite the recurring wind, rain, and even a little ice, there was constant warmth throughout the week as the Rhema family mixed and mingled. Events for various groups from Word Partner members to RBTC alumni strengthened bonds. Invigorating messages, timely words of wisdom, and powerful prayer refreshed the international crowd. Whether online or on land, people participated in the services, salvations, rededications, infillings of the Holy Spirit, and healings. It was truly a family of believers reconnecting, caring, and growing together. Here's a sampling of what attendees heard.

MOTHER'S DAY IN the U.S. has been an official holiday on the second Sunday in May since 1914. Certainly, it is fitting to set aside a day to honor the person who was responsible for us being on the earth. The Bible honors wives and mothers in Proverbs 31:10–30. I particularly like two of the verses in the New Living Translation. Verse 11 says, "Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life." Verse 28 states, "Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her."
Mothers are one of the most important individuals in our lives. A survey conducted among children said they would choose the love and approval of their mother over money, fame, or possessions.
