Effective Training! Part 1. Avoid defeat on the battlefield of life. (Five Sessions)

Thank you for your diligence and the desire to learn. Your lifestyle from all training will be your 
proof of completion. There is no need for a certificate but rather proven character that 
people can see and honoring the heavenly Father.


Many people are talking and planning about how to provide education for their family. While this is valuable, effective spiritual training is essential, especially among those young in the Lord. Families of any age need to be properly equipped, for the world in which we live.

Satan and his kingdom are not threatened when a person is highly educated but they are threatened when a person is a practicing disciple of Jesus Christ and operates in His authority and power.

Keep this in mind, a person can be smart academically but not wise.

Note. I learned years ago that I would rather sweat in training rather than bleed to death on the battlefield of life. Therefore, these training sessions are crucial.

In part one of this training, there are five effective, life-changing sessions. They are geared for those desiring to grow in Christ with no pressure, no Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime. The same is true in all available training.

I believe that church groups have their place, however, I believe a deeper personal connection with the Holy Spirit happens when these things take place in private. You show up to be trained. (Dependability and  Availability) You are guided by the Holy Spirit, (John 16:13-14) along with the Bible behind closed doors. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Ideas to think about: You can work at your own pace, in your own time! There are easy, fun, relevant, and useful links on this website, providing enjoyable documents to read, audio teachings, and videos to watch. Remember, it will be you, the Holy Spirit and God’s Word, rightly divided as possible! Ask questions if desired.

This all can be applied, before you go to bed, rise in the morning, a private lunchtime, on a private break, on vacation in a private location, whatever fits your schedule. The main goal, as much as possible, is undivided attention to your Teacher the Holy Spirit.

(No distractions, opinions, judging, spins, doubts, fears, worries, gloom, and negative testimonies)

Realize, there is no hurry to get through these training sessions. It is wise to take your time and allow God’s word to soak into your life. It is not how much information is accumulated (Quantity), but rather, is there a life-change, spiritual growth, and God is glorified! In other words, is there quality! Once again, the same is true in all available training.

For those desiring to be taught and need assistance. I believe the strongest method for believers of any age to grow in Christ is one-on-one training with a mentor who teaches accurately and effectively. A person who is dependable, experienced, and qualified to teach. (Accountability is needed)

2 Timothy 2:1-2 (AMP)
1 “SO YOU, my son, be strong (strengthened inwardly) in the grace (spiritual blessing) that is [to be found only] in Christ Jesus. 2 And the [instructions] which you have heard from me along with many witnesses, transmit and entrust [as a deposit] to reliable and faithful men who will be competent and qualified to teach others also.”

Colossians 1:28-29 (RSV)
28 “Him we proclaim, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, striving with all the energy which he mightily inspires within me.”

Note: To maintain focus, read everything on each training session before going to the links. Thank you!

Consider these portions of God’s Word. There is much more!

1 Timothy 4:7-8 (AMP)
7 “But refuse and avoid irreverent legends (profane and impure and godless fictions, mere grandmothers' tales) and silly myths, and express your disapproval of them. Train yourself toward godliness (piety), [keeping yourself spiritually fit].

8  For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.”

Proverbs 3:21 (NKJV)
“My son, let them not depart from your eyes-- Keep sound wisdom and discretion;”

Proverbs 4:7 (NKJV)
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.”

Proverbs 5:1 (NKJV)
“My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding,”

Attention parents. On this next portion of God's word, think about your own life and your children, then think about the importance of training.

Jeremiah 12:5 (AMP) 
"[But the Lord rebukes Jeremiah's impatience, saying] If you have raced with men on foot and they have tired you out, then how can you compete with horses? And if [you take to flight] in a land of peace where you feel secure, then what will you do [when you tread the tangled maze of jungle haunted by lions] in the swelling and flooding of the Jordan?"
