Standards for developing revelation-based training

Write a testimonial

This book presents lamad (revelation-based learning) standards  for teachers and curriculum writers. Lamad is a Hebrew word found in the Old Testament and it is translated "to teach" or "to learn."  It is a kind of learning that involves the Holy Spirit granting divine revelation to the heart of man. Thus it goes beyond western rationalism as a learning methodology.

Revelation-based standards for teachers, classrooms and curriculum

Lamad standards require that texts and teaching style cause the student to personally encounter the subject matter at hand, and then interact with the Holy Spirit concerning this subject matter while working the truths out in real life situations. This is much different than what is expected in a typical western academic classroom, where the focus is primarily on what is happening between the ears.

In addition to teaching what revelation-based educational standards are, this practical workbook lays out many evaluation score sheets with standards in the following areas:

  • Standards for being a lamad teacher (8 standards)
  • Standards for developing lamad textbooks (13 standards)
  • Standards for a lamad teaching style (9 standards).
  • Then we lay out a model for developing a lamad lesson plan and creating lamad educational modules.

Is it possible to have spirit/heart educational standards?

It is possible to have educational standards which incorporate the working of the Holy Spirit, the response of one's heart and the end result of a life transformed? This workbook proves that it is. Standards do not need to be reduced to simply what a person memorizes.

We call for the Church to embrace revelation-based standards and develop learning modules which lead students into deeper intimacy with the Holy Spirit. The Bible has 1400 verses on heart and spirit and only 100 on mind. Training must be heart/spirit focused. This is true Christianity. Jesus ministered heart to heart. This is what we must do. Rules produce religion. Christianity is about relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through intimacy with the Holy Spirit. We MUST call our people into an ever deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit!

Lamad Faculty Handbook is designed for writers and educators and anyone who wants to learn to communicate heart to heart.

A free gift for you to download, enjoy and share with your friends!

Patti Virkler, the Academic Dean of Christian Leadership University, has just finished a complete re-write of the college course syllabus for our most popular class, “REN103 Communion With God.” It goes along with our new book 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice and is an amazing improvement over the already life-changing syllabus which was written 15 years ago. Time and experience do allow us the opportunity to continually improve our initial products and we pass these improvements on to you.

 
   


We believe this is so precious and valuable, it should be distributed as widely as possible to all people, colleges, Bible schools and Schools of Ministry with the goal of getting as many schools and churches and home groups as possible teaching this course on how to hear God’s voice. So we invite you to download the new syllabus, and pass it around as widely as possible. It is free!

The personal benefit to you is that by completing all the assignments in this course syllabus, you will absolutely internalize the skill of hearing God’s voice on a daily basis and recording what He is saying to you. If you want college credit for this, you may enroll in our REN103 Communion with God course which comes complete with an instructor, tests, a final grade and college credits. Click here to learn more.

Take It to the Next Level

To ensure that this message transforms your life, we offer you four options. Any of these choices will assist you in internalizing this teaching, helping you to be a doer of the word and not a hearer only (James 1:22) and allowing you to produce a bountiful harvest in your life.

Opportunity 1 – Host a home or church group


This home group in Slovakia shows the excitement of learning to hear God's voice together!

We learn more quickly if we are surrounded by others who are seeking to master the same skill. Pray and ask God who you know who might want to grow in this truth also and open your home to them for 10-12 weekly sessions (or host a small group in your church). We provide several resources to help you present this powerfully and effectively in a group setting, including DVDs and application activities. Experience the joy of cultivating skills together with a group of friends! Discover how to create and post your group…

Opportunity 2 – Hire a Personal Spiritual Trainer to coach you

 
  

Coaching or discipling is the method Jesus used to train the twelve disciples.

When you team up with someone ahead of you in an area to mentor you, and you share your questions and steps of growth with them, receiving their counsel in return, you ascend more quickly into mastery in that area. We have trained coaches who have mastered this topic who will commit to working with you for a 90-day period.

Opportunity 3 – Take this as a college course from home

Christian Leadership University

Earn college credit while being apprenticed to mastery in this area! This topic is available as a course which you can take from your home through the distance learning program offered at Christian Leadership University. You may enroll in this course as a lifelong learner or apply it toward an Associate, Bachelor, Master or Doctoral degree.

Opportunity 4 – Host a seminar for your community

 
  

Transform your church and region by hosting a weekend seminar with an anointed trainer, where an impartation is released by the Holy Spirit into your community. Mark Virkler and others are available to be scheduled.

We recommend that you order the newest revision of this book titled 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice. It includes 95% of the content of How to Hear God's Voice but is reorganized so it fits perfectly with the 10 DVDs on this subject by Mark Virkler. In addition, it gets you started using the four keys earlier in the book and gives you more journaling samples and exercises. Since we have removed the large margins, it is a smaller and less expensive book.

Act Now: 

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
