Keynote Lessons

We're nearing the end of the Healing Trauma teaching series & will be continuing on to work through the 1st 5 Lessons of Elijah House A-School after this commencing on 26th June.

 

Biblical Basis of Elijah House: prayer ministry teaches how God's laws & principles help effect sanctification & transformation in our lives. This lesson builds a scriptural foundation for salvation, with the cross of Christ, & His shed blood being the means to end our separation from God as well as to stop the sinful habits that plague our daily lives.

 

In all the ministry at Elijah House, discernment of the root issues is founded upon the laws in the Word of God.

  • These fundamental laws of God are written in the universe

  • We are subject to them, whether or not we believe in them

  • When we transgress them we set in motion forces that (without God's intervention) must be reaped by simple, impersonal law - law that is absolute & eternal.

  • In our sinful responses to wounding, we begin early in life to develop patterns of behaviour that cause us to reap in adulthood the very things we hate. Lay the axe to the root of the trees.

And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.Matthew 3:10 NKJV

  • How to find the roots

  • How to lay the axe to the roots

  • How to go to the root & heal in the beginning.

  • Trees represent our character & personality formed in sin. We must lay the axe to the cause of bad fruit. Go to the source to uproot the cause.

 

There are 4 Primary Laws upon which all ministry is based:

  • Law of Honour

‘Honor your father and your mother, just as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well for you on the land which the Lord your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 5:16 NAS

 

“Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” Ephesians 6:2‭-‬3 NKJV

 

  • Law that judgements will come back upon us

 “Do not judge, so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Matthew 7:1‭-‬2 NASB2020

 

  • Law of sowing & reaping

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a person sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will reap destruction from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. Galatians 6:7‭-‬8 NASB2020

 

  • Law of Increase - what we sow will come back to us multiplied (both good & evil).

For they sow wind And they harvest a storm. The standing grain has no kernels; It yields no grain. If it were to yield, strangers would swallow it. Hosea 8:7 NASB2020

 

Bitter Roots: reveals the depth and power of bitter root judgment, the driving force behind the recurring patterns of trouble and/or destruction in our lives. The power of bitter roots comes from the unchangeable laws of God which cause us to reap in kind what we have sown. Bitter root judgments are far more powerful than bitter root expectancies. Judgments operate by God's laws, whereas repeated incidents form patterns of expectancy which operate only on the psychological level. Both judgments and expectancies rob us of the abundant life Jesus came to give us.

 

Heart of Stone & Inner Vows: discusses the condition of a heart of stone. We form hearts of stone early in childhood as a defence to pain, Hearts of stone give rise to and are further cemented by judgments, expectancies, and vows, making us the loneliest people in the world - even in the midst of friends. Our judgments will often give rise to determinations of the mind and heart called inner vows. We make inner vows in order to exert control over our lives, but like the bitter root judgments they are born from, they actually control and defile us and others.

 

How we See God: teaches how in our infancy and childhood, mothers and fathers model a picture of God for us. By how they act and what they do, we "see" what God is like. We interpret each succeeding experience through the lens of judgments we have made and the expectations we have developed in response to what has gone before. If we have made many judgments, our views of life and God become distorted.

 

By the time we reach adulthood, our minds may have been taught to believe in God's love and desire to bless, but our hearts say, "Oh, yeah? He's just like Dad (or Mum). "We are not capable of seeing life as it really is - experiences with our parents have given us "tinted spectacles" - until confession, repentance, forgiveness, death on the cross to the old way of seeing, and the gift of a new heart and mind enable us to see God clearly.

 

Honouring Father & Mother: The law of honouring affects our lives powerfully and completely. For prayer ministers, the absolute reliability of God's law is protection against deception (Hebrews 4:12). Through the Holy Spirit and the Word, we help people recognise the excuses, rationalisations and smoke-screens they use to justify sin. We honour, not for what he/she did but for WHO he/she is!

 

If you have "triggers" you would like to get rid of or if you have a heart willing to learn how to pray for others, please join me on this 5 week introductory journey on the Biblical basis of Elijah House ministry.

 

Prayer ministry is an awesome evangelism tool because there are so many wounded people in our communities that would find Christ through the miracles He's able to do for them through the body of Christ.

 

If you know anyone that may benefit, please don't hesitate to bring them along.
