The Priest Course Overview
Mastering Servant Leadership
The Warrior established that you are now overcoming in most of your invisible battles in a locked-shield community of a couple “911” Brothers. The Priest Course (Year 2) consists of 12 weeks of the transformational training of man into a servant leader* in relation to his wife, his kids, grandkids, workplace, church, and community.
“So justice is turned away, and righteousness stands at a distance. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter. Truth is missing, and whoever turns from evil makes himself a prey. The LORD looked and was offended that there was no justice. And He saw that there was no man—that there was no intercessor: therefore his own arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.” –Isaiah 59:14-16
The materials we’ll be using:
1. The Bible: We’re recommending one of these 3 authorized and highly accurate interpretations of the oldest texts available from the original language of the writers. Paraphrase versions take license with looser interpretation guidelines fo the purposes of readability, but they should not be the primary resource for study and devotion for authentic disciples of Jesus who are developing the habit searching for guidance and the knowledge of God and His Kingdom in the Scriptures:
The New King James Bible – modernized from the finest Bible of its time, The King James version, much of the painstaking scholarship of these 16th Century scribes delivered excellent English language understanding to the original intent of the writers of each of the 66 Books of the Bible. However, the King himself ordered the change of the original word “ekklesia” to the un-biblical “Church,” gaining him, as the God-appointed Head of the Church of England, greater control over the clerics and the masses.
The New International Bible – Note, the newest version of the NIV has changed almost all of the references to man or men to a more neutral gender. They have also chosen to eliminate several keywords (for example changing Jesus’ strong exhortation to the 12 Disciples to be in “prayer and fasting” in Matthew 17:21, to just “prayer,” thus weakening one of the most strengthening practices of the New Testament church today.
The English Stand Version – The ESV stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half-millennium, with many quality revisions over the centuries since. Unlike the King James version, the fountainhead of this stream was William Tyndale’s New Testament of 1526, where Tyndale’s team kept to the original “Ekklesia” meaning, “those called out to change the World as God’s Holy family of Believers.”
2. The Priest Feild Manual – Like the Warrior Field Manual, this workbook will help with notetaking and post-class Core Conditioning reading and exercises all through the Course
1)“Prayer is Invading the Impossible” by Jack Hayford
2) Destined for the Throne, by Dr. Paul Bilheimer
These two 20th Century classics bring paradigm-changing insights to your journey into “the Priesthood” as a Christ-empowered, authoritative catalyst for the invasion of the Kingdom of God into the World around you, beginning with your home.
This course calls out and installs the leadership skills needed in the five dimensions of Manhood:
The Devoted Priest – This is the study of the Old and New Testament Priesthoods in Scripture as men were called to pursue a holy separation from the World, devoted to Yahweh in the quiet times and active engagement culminating in Jesus our High Priest in the Book of Hebrews
The Husbanding Priest * – Long ago, the Husbandman was the lead Farmer, an expert on his soil, weather changes, the crops, and the threats to the harvest. Here we find the man…the husband in his most difficult and inspiring role of being like Christ to his bride.
The Fathering Priest – Gaining the skills and “presence” to be the best Dad or Grandad ever, and expanding beyond that, to have your heart broken and awakened for the Fatherless are the two experiences each man will take with him into his future
The Praying Priest – Learn the 16 kinds of prayer, how to meditate, soak in the Scriptures through Lectio Divina, and seeking and finding of God as a relationship and a lifestyle, are the quests of this section of the course
The Servant Leader– grow into a servant-influencer–leading by example, and elevating those around you at work and as you in minister to others
