The title of this teaching series grabs you because we haven’t typically thought of fruit as weapons for battle. The message of this teaching, however, is not just simply novel or clever. It’s a substantial look at a weighty subject. Use this teaching to shore up your defenses in this battle that Scripture calls the good fight of faith.Bob Sorge

I attended Rivkah’s first conference on The Fruit of the Holy Spirit as Spiritual Warfare in February 2014. I had listened to her CD’s a couple of times but still wanted to understand more. I love the way she teaches the replacement concept and how when we execute warfare against the enemy by coming in the opposite spirit we gain victory. When she explained the Roles of the Godhead, I felt like I had come a long way in my understanding of this concept as well.
She says it so beautifully, “Love isn’t a ‘what.’ Love doesn’t originate as a thought or an emotion. Love is a ‘Who.’ Love is a Person. God is LOVE.”G. S.
Rivkah’s teaching on The Fruit of the Holy Spirit as Spiritual Warfare has been very enlightening to me as well as useful for others. The first presentation I heard was on Judgment and Mercy. Her material transformed my beliefs about judgment and opened the door for Mercy to have a much broader impact than I had ever thought before.
I have used the materials with two different individuals since I first heard that specific teaching. In one instance, I used the prayers with a young man who had spent 7 of his teenage years as a member of a violent gang. The Lord rescued him in such a sweet way and yet he still had many bridges to rebuild. He felt judged by his mother, uncle and grandparents for life he had led and they still did not trust him. In preparation for his visit to them in another state we went through the judgment prayers. He was freed of that feeling of judgment from them and was able to have a very successful visit and the bridge building has begun.
In another instance a man was struggling with confusion between Judgment and Discernment. The teaching on Judgment and Mercy opened a whole new way of looking at things for him. As a result he has reexamined his relationships and the use of the prayers has brought a whole new level of compassion and mercy into his relationships and his ministry.
For my part, I can see the change in these two individuals’ personalities as they have let go of the Judgment and moved to Mercy. Rivkah’s teaching has presented important tools in the transformation of my views but in the lives of these other individuals as well.
As I dig more deeply into Rivkah’s teaching, I discovered that the Fruit of the Spirit are not only the passive result of a devout life but they take on the active participation in the salvation epic that Jesus laid out for us. The paradox of the Fruit being used as a weapon of spiritual warfare changes the way we view the fruit not as a result of righteous living but as the starting point from which we can go out to labor in God’s kingdom to bring about His will in all things.M.
