As being my 1st time to visit the forums and getting acquainted with how everything works I've found a renewed passion for learning the word of God. I just completed Leadership Vision from the 3rd trimester with Dr. David Shibley and made my 1st perfect score on the exam. Hallelujah. So with a renewal of mind I anxiously await a continued growth in my spiritual walk and closeness with OUR FATHER and you, my brothers and sisters sharing in this journey with me. Thank You ISOM for making this journey possible for me right here at home. God bless you all.❤
Welcome to ISOM, MowMow, and well done on your achievements!

I love the name you've chosen! :)

Hello all! ;) It's a funny thing. I was talking to my mom yesterday about how I don't have strong support and pretty much every single friend I've had has abandoned me in one way or another. So, my mom asks, "Can't you connect with other students?" Oh, I never thought of that! I am pulling this forum today before I get the kids and am amazed I somehow missed this! It's been hard to be friendless, but I know He is working on bringing NEW friendships around, better than the ones before. I have been on fire and love how these messages are so rich in the Word! I've had to personally push through quite a bit since I've begun these studies, but breakthroughs have come SUDDENLY! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!!:love:
In my experience, virtual fellowship helps us feel connected just as much as face-to-face fellowship. So I agree it is as important to connect here as to follow our video lessons.

If you were attending a face-to-face school, you would need to spend just as much time, and the limitations of time and space would possibly make you miss some classes and connection. Here we follow the lessons and connect on ISOM Connect at our own pace. And at the same time we form a students community, just like at any other college or university!

At times the team also meet us via Facebook to give talks. Stay tuned!

Hi Susan thank you for sharing about friendships, I've come to realize that this is a very lonely walk with the Lord, that the Lord will
separate you from people that distract you from the work He has called you to do, it's what I call clearing the room, He has done
that with me even family members, we just have to trust Him, because He knows what's ahead, and our focus needs to be on Jesus!
I pray this helps. I'm sorry for not introducing myself, my name is Vivian.

Hi and good morning from Alaska!
Decided to go for my Masters and I’m a lot nervous now and at the same time excited!
I am also enjoying all the access to subjects and learning from so many treasured great teachers. Who would have thought I’ll have a chance to hear Dr. Dick Benjamin, founder of Abbott Loop church here in AK!?? Or have coffee with Reinhard Bonnke??? I’m so excited. While I wait for my books, I have been feasting on so much topics.
I do pray, for more passion to study and take on and remember my lessons 😅 (May the Lord preserve them in me).
Have a blessed day everyone. Never stop growing... keep seeking His face in all you do.
God bless

Session 5 Divine Healing;
Divine healing is a part of the redemptive work of Christ.
Isa. 53:1-5 Here we understand that Jesus bore our physical and spiritual healings in His body. He was pierced
for our rebellion, crushed for our sins, beaten so we could be whole, whipped so we could be healed. His sacrifice
presented us whole before the father. He became the one and only sacrifice for ever.

Matt. 8:16-17 Jesus demonstrated what had been spoken in Isa 53:4. He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.
He has given us authority(power) over unclean spirits.
1Peter 2:24 Christ came to die for my sin and suffer for my healing. He became the sacrificial lamb who took my
place and paid the debt I owed. He bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live unto
righteousness, and by His stripes we was healed.

what said the Lord. Hezekiah prayed to the Lord and the Lord healed him.
E. Luke 8:40-56 Jairus, a leader of the synague, came and fell at Jesus feet pleading with to come to his house,
because his only daughter was dying. On Jesus way to Jairus house, He came in contact with a woman who
had been bleeding for 12 years and no one could heal her. She touch the hem of His garment and immediately
the bleeding stopped.

Foundations of the faith Session 3

1. The part that got my attention is when people go to hell. They are give a chance to go to heaven if they are found in the book of life.

2. The Scriptures tell us that faith comes from listening to the message of the Good news. Believing and accepting Christ as God's son. Sticking to that belief no matter what.

3. Faith leads to salvation. Then miricales happen and we are freed.

I pray for your health and prosperity as you see God's plan for you to develop.

Welcome
Hello and welcome to ISOM Connect! We've created this platform for students to be able to connect with each other, as well as with us as the online ISOM team. It will also enable you to share feedback as to what God is putting on your heart!

The first thing you as a student need to do is to REGISTER on the forums. You can register by clicking "Register" on the top right button on this page. Once you are registered and logged in, you will then have the ability to post and interact on the forums.

What to expect
At the end of each ISOM session, you will see in your workbook that there are "group discussion" questions. We have chosen 3 questions from each course to be the topics of discussion for each course. As you go through each semester on the forum, you'll see all the courses listed out. Choose the course and session you would like to discuss and begin posting! The 3 questions we write are just a guideline to help you get started, but every student is encouraged to branch out and share/ask what has been placed on their own heart.

There are many different ways for you to get involved in the conversation! You can send direct message to your fellow classmates, post in the class discussion, share a testimony from your time doing ISOM, or ask for specific prayer requests. Don't be afraid to jump in!

Navigating the Forums
Your Profile

If you haven't already, be sure to go to your profile and update your information. You can add a picture of yourself, let us know your birthday, connect your social media, and more! Just click your name on the top menu, and then click "Account details".

Media
In the top menu, you'll see a "Media" tab where all of the Connect videos are posted. We will always post any new videos or media content here for the students to easily access. We record a new session every Tuesday and postings normally happen by the end of the day each Wednesday.

Guidelines
For many students, communicating over the internet is a new venture. Therefore, we thought it would be a benefit to give a quick guideline for how your writing should be formed in an online forum.
This is how to communicate the W.R.I.T.E. way.

(W)arm-
Online communication can be cold and disconnected, if not intentionally made to be warm or kind. It is easy to read harshness into someone else's words. Be sure to always phrase your writing in the kindest way possible. Any harsh or unruly posts will be removed promptly.

(R)esponsive-
Make sure to not just post your own thoughts and opinions all the time. Be sure to read through what God is speaking to other students and encourage them, as well foster more dialogue.

(I)nquisitive-
When in doubt... ask questions! If you need any clarification from the staff or other student, do not keep your questions to yourself. Often times a lot of miscommunication can be resolved with a single question and answer.

(T)entativeness-
Do not feel rushed or pressured to post quickly. Put thought into your posts and make sure that you are purposeful in what you are saying. If talking to another student, be sure to re-read what you have written and make sure that it can not be taken negatively or in a critical way. Defensiveness is reduced when people sense tentativeness and gentleness in other's responses.


(E)mpathy-
An important aspect of online communication is to put yourself in the shoes of the other online students and instructors. Their level of understanding may be in a different place than yours, or God may be speaking to them about an entirely different concept. Keep an open mind and heart and remember that you can learn from anybody. We are all in different stages of our walk with God!

Questions
If you need any assistance, you can email anyone on the "Staff" team (Slav@isom.org, Angel@isom.org, or Brad@isom.org). You have the option of directly messaging us from your inbox, or posting in the "Questions" section of the forum.
Hello friends,

I am grateful beyond words to be able to take these studies. And with you all. They only make me more and more hungry for the Lord and His Word.
Two of my favorite Scriptures are Galatians 2:20:
I have been Crucified with Christ and yet I live, Not I but Christ lives in Me. Hallelujah!
And Philippians 1:6:
He who began a good work in me is Faithful! to complete it! Hallelujah!
Just finished Bill Winston's Powerful Faith teaching #1. Thank you!
This program is special unlike any other program, the instructors are unique they are not from the four walls of a building or institutions they speak from field experience. They teach what they really see in the field which is demonstrating practical Jesus. This was very significant. Take for example when they talk about the pigmies, the rainforest work That is exceptional. You don't see most people go to this jungles or get this kind of experience in theological school. These are special I am encouraging a lot of members in my church to do it. Be so blessed.

That is amazingly wonderful, Ps Thomas! Seeing your church grow, through ISOM, must put a big smile on your face! By now, the 6 probably has already increased! Praise the Lord! I started March of 2018, and ISOM has become a very important part of my daily life. I have 10 more classes that I look forward to, then I'll be at the end of Trimester 5. I plan to continue on.
I enjoy hearing about your church, so keep sharing!
