Ministries / School of the Supernatural
The Father has made an incredible opportunity available to all of his children: access to his world. At the beginning of and throughout his ministry Jesus consistently announced, “the Kingdom of heaven is here!” (Matt. 3:2;10:7, NKJV) From his baptism to his resurrection, the Lord showed us how to live as sons and daughters with full access to our Father’s inheritance. As Christians, we have been given the opportunity to see, hear, smell, taste and touch his “Kingdom”.
This school is an endeavor towards awakening those senses in each one of us. In order to accomplish this goal, we will heed Jesus’ words, “God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality)” (John 4:24, AMP). His Reality will be sought out through a comprehensive study of the Old and New Testaments, highlighting the supernatural interventions, experiences and realities of the Father’s working throughout human history. In addition, the course will investigate dreams, visions, prophetic revelation, worship, healing, signs and wonders, and all that He’s given to us as an inheritance in his family.
