REVELATION OF H.E.2M.2
ON-LOCATION BIBLE SCHOOL
INTENSIVE SPIRITUAL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
PURPOSE: The ON-LOCATION BIBLE SCHOOL is an opportunity to embark on a short intense period of Bible Study for growth and development in a personal way with you and your members. It allows for a personal assistance to those needing instruction in study, application, understanding and an opportunity for questions to answered immediately in person, in the context of the study. If you have a desire for this in your area this BIBLE SCHOOL is for the purpose of coming to you personally. Please pray about having us come to your area if it is God’s will He will see to it being accomplished, we just must work in faith. Even having a school in your area is an experience in faith in which we can learn how the Lord works for and through us.
INTENSIVE SPIRITUAL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM: As a medical missionary I have found in my research, very helpful information in my study of the brain. Research has shown that if a child in an academic setting is at a level lower than they should be, with 20 hours of intensive enrichment their reading level can increase by 2 grade levels. If the program or skills acquired are continued in another month or two they will have increased yet another grade level or so. The endeavor of this INTENSIVE SPIRITUAL ENRICHMENT is to increase the “Spiritual development, growth, strength, and comprehension” of each participant. I know with confidence based on the willingness of God, that each person who has a desire to develop spiritually will have far more benefit than a grade school child’s improvement of 2-3 grade levels in reading. Therefore no matter how much a person may feel they struggle spiritually to grow, to have good study habits, the Holy Spirit will help in this development. Our brains have been created to develop continually no matter our age. Our primary goal in this ministry is the spiritual victory of each individual through one method or another to assist guiding each person into an experience of victory in this present world, developing the character of Christ. “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” Psalm 139:14; John 14:26; Philippians 3:8-10.
Requirements: A room free of interruptions, with tables for the students to take notes and write observations gained from the scriptures. It is a school and we want to encourage all to learn to acquire good note taking skills because the information gone over will be of value especially later when the experience matches the area of scripture covered(the dullest pencil it better than the sharpest mind), and also serves as a basis for the increase of spiritual knowledge and wisdom that will be gained in the future because understanding truth is continual process of growth and development.
Travel: If we are able we will come to you by air or ground travel. The Lord is able to provide from your side or on our part we just must move forward in faith, in obedience to His principles.
Publicizing/Annoucements: We ask that the study be available to as many as possible in your area that we can reach as many as possible.
Room & Board
The following is a sample of our plan and objectives for our ON-LOCATION BIBLE SCHOOL which we are offering to groups that would be interested in an intensive Bible course for the purpose of spiritual growth and development(for individuals and churches), development of leaders, developing or strengthening small group studies, learning sound principles of biblical interpretation and context, in depth understanding of deeper spiritual truths, or reformation and revival. For sound principles of bible interpretation to be developed we believe in setting each principle in the context of the surrounding scripture and in order to learn this all the context must be considered, greater and smaller. Learning one area of the Bible thoroughly, gives deeper understanding in all other areas. In fact each book of the Bible has the entire gospel in it, it is just that the context of each book as a specific emphasis that when rightly seen and understood allow from greater understanding spiritual and attaining to spiritual victory in the experiences of life. The Bible is our guide of assurance to victory, we must only make sure that we see what we need to for our personal experience, situation and circumstances which have all been placed somewhere in the Bible to lead each person or group into receiving of the promises set forth in the Word by the Lord. Listen to the audio recordings of our radio program The Word by the Word to give an idea of how an in-depth contextual study can be.
Based on your need we can help with deciding which book may be the best for your situation, circumstance and spiritual need.
Below is outlined 2 samples of possible books of the Bible that could be studied by your church or group. Note that a larger book of course requires more time but the smaller epistles can be done in a weekend or more throughly over a week. Please contact us and let us know if you would like to schedule a Bible School in your area.

“The student of the Bible should be taught to approach it in the spirit of a learner. We are to search its pages, not for proof to sustain our opinions, but in order to know what God says.
“A true knowledge of the Bible can be gained only through the aid of that Spirit by whom the word was given. And in order to gain this knowledge we must live by it. All that God's word commands, we are to obey. All that it promises, we may claim. The life which it enjoins is the life that, through its power, we are to live. Only as the Bible is thus held can it be studied effectively.
“The study of the Bible demands our most diligent effort and persevering thought. As the miner digs for the golden treasure in the earth, so earnestly, persistently, must we seek for the treasure of God's word.
“In daily study the verse-by-verse method is often most helpful. Let the student take one verse, and concentrate the mind on ascertaining the thought that God has put into that verse for him, and then dwell upon the thought until it becomes his own. One passage thus studied until its significance is clear is of more value than the perusal of many chapters with no definite purpose in view and no positive instruction gained.
“One of the chief causes of mental inefficiency and moral weakness is the lack of concentration for worthy ends. We pride ourselves on the wide distribution of literature; but the multiplication of books, even books that in themselves are not harmful, may be a positive evil. With the immense tide of printed matter constantly pouring from the press, old and young form the habit of reading hastily and superficially, and the mind loses its power of connected and vigorous thought. Furthermore, a large share <190> of the periodicals and books that, like the frogs of Egypt, are overspreading the land, are not merely commonplace, idle, and enervating, but unclean and degrading. Their effect is not merely to intoxicate and ruin the mind, but to corrupt and destroy the soul. The mind, the heart, that is indolent, aimless, falls an easy prey to evil. It is on diseased, lifeless organisms that fungus roots. It is the idle mind that is Satan's workshop. Let the mind be directed to high and holy ideals, let the life have a noble aim, an absorbing purpose, and evil finds little foothold.
“Let the youth, then, be taught to give close study to the word of God. Received into the soul, it will prove a mighty barricade against temptation. "Thy word," the psalmist declares, "have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee." "By the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer." Psalms 119:11; 17:4.
“The Bible is its own expositor. Scripture is to be compared with scripture. The student should learn to view the word as a whole, and to see the relation of its parts. He should gain a knowledge of its grand central theme, of God's original purpose for the world, of the rise of the great controversy, and of the work of redemption. He should understand the nature of the two principles that are contending for supremacy, and should learn to trace their working through the records of history and prophecy, to the great consummation. He should see how this controversy enters into every phase of human experience; how in every act of life he himself reveals the one or the other of the two antagonistic motives; and how, whether he will or not, he is even now deciding upon which side of the controversy he will be found.
“Every part of the Bible is given by inspiration of God and is profitable. The Old Testament no less than the New should receive attention. As we study the Old Testament we shall find living springs bubbling up where the careless reader discerns only a desert.” ED 189-191
