Supernatural Ministry School Details


Spirit Led Academy which conducts the online course is a non-denominational organization with a goal of equipping believers world-wide.

We use the word ‘equippers’ not simply ‘teachers’, as the course obviously involves more than just gaining academic and theological knowledge.

The equipping material and activation exercises have been provided by those who have operated in supernatural ministry, planted churches and have trained others to duplicate them. Therefore it is proven, theologically sound and extremely practical.

There is a wealth of apostolic experience behind the teaching; therefore it also reveals the many pitfalls, ‘the traps for young players’ that have the potential to side track your ministry.

Apart from the online teaching, practical seminar/workshops, on hearing from God, moving in the gifts, healing the sick, etc are also conducted. Further details are provided in the WORSHOPS link.

We do not claim to have the whole counsel of God in our course. However we do believe our course provides an apostolic foundation (Eph. 2:20) which needs to be established in all believers before they receive ongoing theological knowledge.

 

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

Jesus is our role model for moving in the supernatural and most Christians would agree that as disciples we are to be transformed into the image of Christ. The question is, “How much like Jesus are we really expected to become?”  The apostle Paul made it quite clear; “that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ”. Eph 4:13

“Jesus own expectation is explicit; "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works …”  John 14:12 NLT

 

JESUS’ SECRET INGREDIENT

Many Bible commentators have put these statements into the realm of the impossible. They are impossible … for anyone who doesn’t understand how Jesus was able to achieve what He did.  However, He tells us;

"Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” John 5:19

“For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it.”   John 12:49 NIV

This was the secret of Jesus’ phenomenal success. Everything He said and did came directly from the Father.

He was a role model teaching us the secret of His success … so you could imitate him.

Jesus prayed that you would have the same intimate relationship that He had with His Father, “… that they may be one just as We are one.”   John 17:22

 

PERFECTION?

We believe hearing from the Lord is the foundation of seeing Jesus’ works and greater things happening in your life. Therefore our course goes beyond having you move in the gifts and lay hands on the sick. Although these are taught, we regard them as primary or elementary subjects.

Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. Heb. 6:1-2

 

Baptisms (including baptism with the Spirit) and laying hands on the sick are considered  “elementary”.   We need to go onto perfection (full maturity)

This does not mean perfect knowledge of the Bible!

… till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of ChristEph. 4:13

 

Traditional thinking has made this difficult for many Christians to believe, let alone achieve. However inner guidance as modelled by Jesus is available to you and is achieved by personal relationship and intimate fellowship with the Lord.

 

Therefore, our course concentrates on helping you build this personal relationship. This goes beyond giving you the theory of hearing from God.  Our daily activation exercises provide you with a practical way of hearing from Him. This gives you the potential of going beyond the elementary principles … to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

 

CRITICISM OF THE COURSE

We have had some of our students who have told us that our course is too simple. We believe this is a compliment. First of all, the art of good teaching is all about making a difficult subject easy to understand.

Jesus, the greatest teacher of all, taught at a level that even a child could grasp it.

 

Remember, the goal is not only to transform you, but for you then to transform others.

Most people are not great intellectuals. They are so called ‘average’ people who need truth explained to them in an uncomplicated way.  Whether they are an illiterate person from a remote village, ex-jail inmate or great academic, like Jesus, you need to make the truths of God’s kingdom as easy as possible to understand.

We believe it will be a great army of ‘average” (but Spirit led) people who will turn the world upside down.

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; “        1 Cor. 1:27

Secondly, as important as teaching is, Bible knowledge is there for the purpose of knowing and imitating the Lord.

“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me”.   John 5:39

When we stand before the Lord He won’t be asking us about our theology. He will be interested in only one thing; how much like Jesus did we become.

This course questions our relationship with Jesus and how much we are being led by the Holy Spirit to do the works of the Father.  Let’s re-adjust the traditional goal of more knowledge and concentrate on producing Christ-like disciples who know Him, not just facts about Him.

This next Scripture can apply to believers as well as unbelievers.

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come … always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”   2 Tim. 3:2, 7

The truth is that the Lord needs “doers of the word and not hearers only”.     

The simple evaluation you will need to ask yourself after completing the course is;

·           Am I being a role model of the Spirit led life?

·           Can I easily teach and impart this to others?

 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Can you imagine the effect on the world if every believer was equipped to be able to hear from the Lord and minister in love and power as Jesus did?

This course has the potential to transform ‘ordinary’ Christians into extra-ordinary ones. No matter who you are, you can be equipped to make a difference!

 

 NOT ONLINE  -  NO PROBLEM 

1.    Computer with poor or no internet access

Some of those in remote areas may either not be online or have a slow or unreliable internet service.  You do not require a direct internet connection. All you need is your own USB port and access to a computer. Second hand computers are quite cheap.

Using your USB port, you can download the course through an internet café or friend, take it home and complete it on your computer.  You then send back the completed questionnaire via your friend or internet café and then receive your results.

Some churches may consider providing computers and office space for those who do not have internet access.

 

2.    No Computer

 

Those who have no computer may be able to work in co-operation with their church and leader. The leader can download the material and you can do the tests under their supervision.

 Your leader may be interested in forming a group and you could work through the course together. Refer to link  ABOUT US/Local Academy Partnerships
