"God has said by His Spirit:"
“In these last days I am raising up an Army that will go out and possess the land. Part of this mighty Army are the children who are being trained within Christian schools. These young people will be for signs and wonders that will cause many to come to acknowledge Christ as Lord. They are the ones who will do mighty exploits for God.
“The students in these schools will go out under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, empowered to do the works of Jesus, knowing their authority in Christ and using the Word with great effectiveness. These students will not boast or glory in their own skill or wisdom; rather, they will glory in the fact that they know and understand Me, and that I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me.
“From these schools will come a new generation of students who will move in and take over the schools, churches, universities and corporations and will literally do the ministry of Jesus.
“My Spirit is searching this world over, looking for men and women whose hearts are humbled before Me, who are willing to be obedient to the voice of My Spirit. It will be these men and women whom I will call to give birth to a new generation of Christian schools” (August, 1985) *
This was a word given by the Lord to me for the Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation, Inc. as written in the first textbook for my course at the Regent University School of `Education. Because of my responsibilities as a doctor, it was a challenge to answer the call of God to finish this program toward a Master’s degree in Education, majoring in Christian School Administration. However, when I saw this vision, I knew that the Lord has led me through this challenge because He has a marvelous plan for the Lord Immanuel.
Dear Lord Immanuel Students and Graduates,
God has a marvelous plan for you, too. You will “do mighty exploits for God”. The vision of the Lord Immanuel is God’s vision for you:
“From the Lord Immanuel will come graduates who love God with all their heart, all their soul, all their mind, all their strength, and who will be part of the great army of the living God equipped by Him, as disciple-makers, in all areas of life to boldly extend His kingdom with love to the end of the earth, to the end of the age, to the praise of His glory.”
Will you accept the challenge? May you do so, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name.
