Prophetic Word Regarding RDU  

​January 24, 2010

First from coast to coast and then the nations, saith God - through all means available: publication,  media and internet - forming an army of warriors who will be armed and dangerous. 

This will I use to execute my judgment against the enemy and bring the captives out of captivity and liberty to those that are bruised and wounded and release those who have been held captive to ignorance, by bringing them into the knowledge and wisdom of the purpose of God.

This I will use to reap in the harvest of souls, by activating the sleeping giant that will be stirred and brought forth by the vision I have placed upon RDU for my glory saith God. Unto you that are my leaders and pioneers of purpose I unify your hearts and spirit for such a time as this and will build a sure house and foundation with this university as long as I am exalted and honored in all that you do.  Walk in the spirit of unity and watch and see Me perform my purpose through yielding vessels.

God Bless You, Apostle Ivory Hopkins

I am honored God chose me to birth RDU.  It has been a blessed journey that unfolds one day at a time, one conference at a time and even one faith walk at a time!  RAPHA is the Hebrew word for the verb "rapa" which means to heal, make healthy, restore and is one of the names used to describe God.

Rapha encompasses: 

  • healing of the infirm person (Jeremiah 17:14) 
  • the restoration of a nation (Isaiah 6:10, Hosea 6:1)
  • healing sicknesses (Deuteronomy 28:27)
  • wounds (2 Kings 8:29) to faithlessness (Jeremiah 3:22

We thank God that you have been led by the Holy Spirit to consider RDU as the school to transform your life and align you all the more with your calling and destiny. We are committed to academic excellence and equipping many generations by the Spirit of the Lord to take  “balanced” deliverance and healing to their generation.  It is our prayer to carry out the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ with no short cuts.  

It is our mission and mandate to “Take the Whole Gospel to the Whole World.”  Thank you for growing with us and fulfilling God’s vision for your life. We decree kingdom advancement, accelerated grace and power into your future as you assist RDU with transforming the world with the Kingdom of God!  

God Bless You, Bishop Dr. Jackie L. Green
