What Qualifies a Kingdom Teacher?
When my twins were younger, we often spent weekends at the beach, playing in the freezing cold water. They owned wetsuits before they had their own email accounts. When they were around nine, they wanted to learn how to surf. Not wanting to hire a teacher, I taught them myself. Even though I’d never been on a surfboard myself.
I’d watched surfing on TV for years and over time, I came to understand the mechanics of it. How to paddle with a wave to gain momentum. How to kneel and then stand on the board. Balance. Reading the waves. Everything. I understood it well enough that I was able to explain it to the kids and show them how to do it.
There are many golfers who have won major tournaments. By some standards, any such golfer would make an excellent teacher. But in fact, many of them would be terrible at teaching. There are other golfers who have never won a tournament but could teach golf as well as anyone. They make good teachers not because they’re excellent at golf but because they’re excellent at teaching. The same is true for teaching the supernatural.
Someone may be a gifted healer, but that doesn’t qualify them to be a teacher. Teaching requires a different skill set than healing. The question isn’t whether you’ve done something or even how skilled you are at it, but whether you have the skills needed to teach it to others.
I’m not the best dead raiser, miracle worker or healer. If I were, my ministry would focus on getting people healed. But it doesn’t. I understand how to operate in the miraculous but more importantly, God has given me the ability to teach it to others. Whether it’s advanced cardiac life support, emotional healing or how to make a good margarita, I love teaching. I enjoy it so much that I’ve decided to launch an online healing class.
Let me tell you a little about the class:
Not every medical condition or life crisis can be dealt with in the same way. Some things require the exercise of authority while others need a release of power. Some conditions will disappear in God’s glory while others require deliverance. Many people require emotional healing while others need healing of their DNA. God has given us many tools for healing. The trick is knowing which tool to use for each situation and how to use them properly. That’s what you’ll learn in the class.
Teaching is my passion. If you’d like to hire me as your teacher, I’m available. To learn more about my Divine Healing Class, click on the link or on the image below.
Now this is exciting.
Ps. I love the part about your interaction with your kids the most:)!
We are so pleased to see what you’re doing with the online class. God is using the Internet to “multiply” the anointing in the church. We bless your efforts.
I agree with your comments on teaching vs. doing. I enjoyed teaching accounting, but one on one is where I excelled. I was good at accounting but sucked as a manager. I hated the time cards, performance appraisals, etc.
I’m curious about your comment on DNA healing. I have a couple of genetic problems. I’ve prayed about them and sometimes get inspiration about managing symptoms. I’ve never considered the possibility of healing on a genetic level.
Hi, Scott. I’d like to thank you for purchasing my books and supporting my ministry. It means a lot to me. In response to the article on Cross Church, I would ask you to read this article that I wrote on the same subject: http:s://prayingmedic.com/2016/01/does-matthew-10-8-prohibit-christians-from-charging-for-their-service/
There is much debate about whether it’s biblical to charge for our services or whether we should ask for donations or offerings. I realized some time ago, it’s not practical to ask for a donation for most of the things I do. I’m not a public speaker. I’m an author. Amazon doesn’t allow me to ask for donations for my books. I have to set a price and there are minimums that I have no control over. ($5.38 is the lowest price they allow for a print book and my two most popular books are sold at that price.) On the few occasions when I do teach publicly, I tend to give away a lot of books. I also offer ebook copies for free for anyone who cannot afford them.
There are over 1,000 articles, videos and podcasts available here on my website for free. I don’t ask for donations for them and I don’t advertise, (though I could make a little more money if I did). About 80% of the content of most of my books can be found in my articles, videos and podcasts. For those who want access to my teching there’s a lot available for free.
The healing class is a different animal. I’m offering it because, over the last year, people have asked if I would make available a more structured teaching program. All who asked said they would pay me for my time. God suggested I follow the flat-fee models used by Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, Global School of the Supernatural and The Welton Academy.
I always reserve the option of allowing admission to the class at a reduced fee as situations arise that warrant special consideration.
Thanks for your thoughts, Scott.
I left my job a year ago. No pension and I’m too young for social security. Writing and teaching is my new career.
the links to your class are not working and result in a 404 error.
Thought you’d want to know. No need to post this.
