Creative Bible Study Methods

This course is short and to the point. If approached prayerfully it will provide you with a solid foundation from which you can and will be made use of by the Holy Spirit in spreading the Gospel to the unsaved around you.

Harvestime International Institute

The very existence of Harvestime International Institute is founded upon equipping you and those like you with the tools needed to spread the Gospel. After finishing this course you will be available to the Holy Spirit to teach the message that Jesus taught. This means that the message you are spreading, will be powerful, and will be overwhelmingly meaningful and relevant to the unsaved ones around you.

Message that was originally delivered by Jesus

One problem that is encountered in witnessing, the message many individuals get is not the message that was originally delivered by Jesus. Many of the messengers of these messages are well meaning, but wrong. This course will direct your feet down the path of absolute truth.

Truth is truth. Truth is what God Spoke through Jesus and truth is what you must speak. This then, is the foundation and purpose of this course. This course has an overriding purpose:

  • Your understanding God’s word.

Guidance of the Holy Spirit

The method of this course is the Guidance of the Holy Spirit. After the Holy Spirit, another indispensable piece of equipment for this course is the Bible. You the student will need constant prayerful guidance. You will be participating in much prayer during this course.

When Bible study is approached in this way, organized, guided by the Spirit, and thoughtful, your maturity in the faith will grow. This is precisely why the course is organized in this way.

You will know how to study God’s word

At the end of this course you will know how to study God’s word, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for yourself and not depending on the interpretation supplied by others. When done in a prayerful manner the Bible will become to you, the written word of God. The best commentary on the Bible is the Bible itself. The answer the questions about the Bible are contained in the Bible. During this course you will find yourself in making and organizing outlines, using and making notes for later study. Finally you will find yourself learning the use of charts. Charting of what is written reduces the chance of misunderstanding of what was actually the intent of the author intended meaning.

Foundations Of Faith

It is extremely important to know the foundation of the belief system or of any set of rules and beliefs you hold in your life. This study will introduce you to the basic doctrines that Jesus brought to mankind.

When the foundations are fully understood, spiritual maturity can be achieved.

All of us, without exception, are completely ill equipped and ill fitted to make a journey on the path that leads to Salvation. Someone must somehow introduce you to the teachings of Jesus and their full meanings. In this case that someone is you.

Your responsibility

This course will introduce you to your responsibility to the new believer just starting down this path. You are responsible to lead, guide and move the new convert down the path for service to God and into the heart of the church. You have/will become the personal caretaker for the newly born again Christian.

This course outlines 5 steps the caretaker of the new Christian should take to insure spiritual growth and maturity in the spiritual world. These steps are time tested and authentic in their application. They should be studied diligently and playfully for guidance from the Holy Spirit.

The right tools

The final goal in being an caretaker of the newly won person in Christ is to place such a person in a position and having the right tools in hand, to be able to go out into society and help others on their journey.
