Charlotte Community Revival – North Charlotte – June 2014

“Come in King of Glory”

This outreach had been caught up in a whirlwind of spiritual warfare over several weeks -from the permit, to sound, to tables & chairs, to barricades, to the weather, and through personal challenges experienced by many on the team – but the Lord prevailed!!

We entered in on behalf of North Charlotte by decreeing that we are not orphans and that we are not forgotten; that through faith in Jesus Christ, we are sons of God. And if sons, then we are led by Holy Spirit. So we sought through worship, testimony and ministry to introduce/re-introduce Holy Spirit, the One who came in like a mighty rushing wind on the Day of Pentecost, the One who is the seven-fold Spirit of God: The Spirit of the Lord, The Spirit of Jesus, and The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. And from Isaiah 61, we prophesied that He is The One who had anointed us to bring good news and comfort to North Charlotte, to bind up the brokenhearted and to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for heaviness, and to call forth this community, to those who would believe, as oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord.  Continue reading Charlotte Community Revival – North Charlotte – June 2014

Charlotte Community Revival – Dillehay Courts – May 2014

“Come in King of Glory”

What an amazing time – with a core team of wonderful volunteers, youth ministries, local churches and even a cartoon character, the atmosphere of heaven was recreated right there in the midst of Dillehay Courts through love, worship, testimony, and joy!  This community also received a free lunch and giveaways for the children donated by a multitude of supporters. The children’s sock giveaways were anointed in prayer by faith for the new path now set for their generation.

Our mission was to not just have an event but to extend an invitation, establish a meeting place of heaven and earth, and start a revolution for the advancement of the Kingdom through the release of His Angel Armies into this community.

Mission Haiti -December 2013

Happy New Year & Happy Independence Day! Whom the Son has set free is free indeed!

While in final planning for the trip, I (Yvonne) strongly felt impressed by Holy Spirit to stay until January 1st even though the lead team from MHJ Missions was returning home on December 31st. I first thought it was because of the civil new year but then I discovered just before departing Charlotte that January 1 was the day that Haiti was birthed as an independent nation. And another prophetess had given me this word just a few days prior: “God has given you governmental authority; He is sending you there to uproot an old tree, something that has been in the ground for a long time”.

Outreach to Philadelphia – September 2013

The Birthplace of Our Nation: Worship, Equipping & Strategic Prayer Outing

Worship, Prayer, Equipping Gathering for First Love Ministries

“Holy are You Lord!”

We started the night thanking the Lord in song and then entered into a prophetic worshipful decree of “Holy are You Lord!” as the two worship teams present converged and pressed into His glory. As the rhythm of worship crested we stepped under His Banner and declared Jesus Lord over the region. We asked Holy Spirit to hover over the city, over its people, its churches, its communities.

About Us – Our Story

The Journey

Over the years the Lord has given me, RHM Founder Yvonne Hicks, dreams, visions and prophetic words about the season the Church has just entered into.  One of the primary ones was the open vision I had in 1990 about apostolic teams being released to unleash the atmosphere of heaven in the towns and villages (neighborhoods and communities) where we were being sent.  As the Lord does, He adds clarity as we move along our journey (also see Our Vision and Mission Statements.  I have included some of that journey in this article to encourage you – what you have been progressively sensing along your path is a prelude to the outpouring we are entering into. As Dutch Sheets summarized while at Glory of Zion in January 2015, we have now entered into “The Fullness of Time”: Continue reading About Us – Our Story

Isaiah 61: 1-4, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.

2 Chronicles 7:14, If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
