For Decades he was consistent in prayer and Bible Study; and all the while cried out to know and experience God more. He followed every recipe he could find for how to know, hear, and be intimate with God. He saw gradual results and had many great experiences, but he never felt like he really entered into knowing God in fullness.
Then one day when Rick least expected it, Jesus spoke to him and promised to personally teach Him from the Bible, what he so desired to know. Rick confesses that it was not because He was special or did something right!
What Jesus taught Rick over a 10 year period, from the Word of God, blew his mind; and in the beginning of that visitation, Rick applied what he learned, and his relationship and intimacy with God skyrocketed!
The Lord told Rick that the Father wants this kind of face-to-face, intimate relationship with ALL of His kids, and now Rick has been tasked with teaching you what Jesus taught him.
