The Value of a Faith-Filled Mother

Article Mothers Day

by Kenneth W. Hagin

“From my mother I learned the value of prayer, how to have dreams and believe I could make them come true” –Ronald Reagan

Thank God for mothers! A mother's faith can produce a godly legacy that affects generations to come.

There are two aspects to a mother's faith. First, she believes what God said in His Word. And, second, she believes in her children. Our mothers believe in us even when we don't believe in ourselves.

My mom used to tell me, "Ken, it doesn't matter what anyone else says. I believe in you, and with God's help, you can do whatever you want to do!" I wouldn't be preaching today if it weren't for my mother.

Mothers have the privilege of bringing new life into the world, but they are also uniquely equipped to nurture and help a child grow. A mother's influence on her children is far greater than even she may realize.

If you are a mother and you are wondering if your good example has taught your children anything, I want to assure you that it has. I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. Your faith is more powerful than you think!

A mother's faith can propel children to do things they never thought possible. A mother's faith in her child can cause him to succeed where he would otherwise fail. That is why it is so important for moms to believe in their children and speak positive, faith-filled words over them.

Did you know that if it had not been for a mother, we may not have electric lights today! When Thomas Edison was a young boy, his teacher sent him home with a note that said, "Your child is dumb; we can't do anything for him."

Mrs. Edison wrote back, "You do not understand my boy. I will teach him myself."

She did—and the results were world-changing!

Where would we be without the love, prayers, and support of our mothers? Let's thank God for them today!

Share the Gospel as a Rhema Word Partner

Rhema Word Partners“We’re in this thing together!” –Denise Hagin Burns

How Word Partner Club is Making an Impact

• Keeping the base strong.

• Providing 70% of RBTC student's tuition.

• Spreading the Gospel around the world.

These are just a few of the things that Word Partners do.

As they gathered for a Meet and Greet during Winter Bible Seminar, Partners were encouraged by the Hagin family to continue sowing in prayer and finances. "There's no way we could accomplish what we do without you," Pastor Hagin shared.

A few current students and Alumni shared what Rhema meant to them. Nakia Maplethorpe, a 2nd year student, was healed from asthma when she was in a meeting with a Rhema grad. She is so grateful for Rhema's impact on her life. "You're not just sowing money; you're sowing into peoples' souls," she emphasized.

Partners were uplifted as they enjoyed testimonies, fellowship, and refreshments, knowing that they have a vital role in fulfilling God's end time plan. We are so thankful for our Word Partner Club members!

“I feel very encouraged and like I’m not alone.”

Rev. Kenneth W. Hagin and Billye Brim at Winter Bible SeminarWinter Bible Seminar 2017 Recap

"I realized the importance of my call and heard how much God loved me."
—Vanessa Anseline

Every year, men and women from other countries fly in to attend Winter Bible Seminar. For first time attendee, Vanessa Anseline, it was a truly revitalizing experience. Traveling all the way from Gold Coast, Australia, she had no idea how massive Rhema was. "It was a little scary, driving on the wrong side of the road and not having my GPS work," she laughed. Coming from a smaller church, she saw how big this faith family really is!

"All of the people at Rhema came alongside me and made me feel so welcomed," Vanessa shared. "I feel very encouraged and like I'm not alone." She had such a wonderful time, she plans on coming back to Winter Bible Seminar next year!

  • Our dates for Winter Bible Seminar 2018 are February 18—23.
  • If you missed any of the services this year or would like to watch them again, you can do so at vimeo.com/rhema.
  • Messages are also available to purchase as WBS mp3's.



We Can Rise From The Darkness That We've Been In—and Enter That New Day!

Article 4


// Kenneth W. Hagin

Are You Ready to Receive?

We all face a choice. We can be satisfied where we are, or we can choose to move to a new experience with God. We are still His people, no matter which direction we take. But we are the ones who decide whether we will enjoy all of His blessings.

I know that sometimes it can seem as if there is no way out of our situation. But look at what Second Corinthians 6:2 (NEB) says: "The hour of favour has now come; now, I say, has the day of deliverance dawned." The dawn of a new day is here! Dawn means a new beginning.

The Light of a New Day Has Come

 Dawn means the old darkness has faded away and the light of a new day has come. We can rise from the darkness that we've been in—the darkness of hardships, trials, tribulation, and all the other difficulties the devil is throwing at us. We can enter that new day!

It's time for us to wake up and realize that God is not only with us—He's ready to deliver us and set us free! He deals in abundance, and He is ready to bring us the maximum, superabundant, over-the-top blessing. He is always ready. The question is, are we ready to receive?

You see, it's up to us to take action and receive. In His Word, God has given us all the direction we need to receive His blessings. If we wait for Him to just drop the blessings on us, it will be too late. We must decide to go after them. Now is the time for us to believe God and speak His Word in order to receive the blessings He has for us!

If you are ready to receive, I encourage you to dig into your personal Bible reading with assistance of our web articles and devotionals.  Your sure to go higher in faith and spiritual victories as you dig deeper into His Word!

And remember, the reason we have any blessings to receive is that Jesus defeated the devil for us. He triumphed over him at the cross. God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
