18 - 23 Nov 2024
One Week Event
Monday - Saturday
Welcome to Ellel Scotland’s week-long edition of Explore. This event includes courses A4-A6. Building on the foundation laid in A1-A3, the teaching moves into more specific topics that offer insight and key principles to consider when looking at Christian healing and discipleship.
This starts with looking at the joy and depth of hope that comes from knowing the truth of our acceptance to God and how this disempowers the rejection we have suffered in life. We then move on to consider how the enemy tries to thwart our lives through gaining footholds that can hinder our relationship with God. The week finishes with a more personal look at how we can be damaged in our inner beings; how we think, feel, choose and even how we see ourselves.
Only our centre in Scotland offers Explore courses over a week-long event, fitting three Explore courses in a week. Our other UK centres offers individual Explore courses over the convenience of shorter weekends.
This course is part of our exciting Explore programme. You can join any Explore course individually, but to receive the full experience we recommend you register for the entire series of this life-transforming programme.
EXPLORE IS FOR ANYONE WHO…
…desires a deeper, closer and more meaningful relationship with God
…knows there are issues in their life which are holding them back
…wants to understand God’s plan for their own life so they can walk in it
…wants to grow in their understanding of healing so that they can help others
Ellel Scotland’s week-long Explore event includes the teaching from the following three courses:
Facing rejection and betrayal can cripple our hearts and minds. It pervades many aspects of our lives as we struggle with consequential fears, insecurities and relationship problems. It can break our trust and faith in others, in ourselves and even in God, leaving us feeling isolated and insecure.
Yet, Scripture teaches us that we are unconditionally loved, accepted and a vital part of God’s family… a place where we can belong and be free to be ourselves. A sense of inadequacy, guilt or shame can hold us back from embracing these truths and we seek to protect our hearts from further rejection and betrayal.
This course will explore how rejection first came into the world and the consequences of it. We will look at how it can form distorted beliefs about our own acceptability to God, to others and even to ourselves and how God’s loving acceptance and His truth can transform our lives, bringing us to a place of assurance and peace once again.
The following topics will be covered:
God’s word is very clear that we live in a spiritual battle and we have a very real enemy. Satan seeks to bring destruction and distress into this world and into our lives and we are urged not to be ignorant of his devices.
We need to know how we can gain freedom and victory from the enemy, something which is only possible because of Jesus’ death on the cross.
This course exposes the enemy’s tactics to undermine the work and will of God. It brings a biblical understanding of the deliverance ministry, the lessons that can be learned from the way Jesus ministered to people in the gospels, who deliverance is for, how the enemy can gain a foothold, and how Jesus has given us His power and authority to bring freedom to others.
But the emphasis will be on the good news of the Gospel; Jesus came to set the captives free and His victory on the Cross has defeated all the powers of Satan. Focussing on how to apply this victory to our personal lives, it aims to bring deep spiritual freedom to the strongholds of the enemy.
The following topics will be covered:
Inner hurts and pain are a reality we all face and can be ignored, suppressed or even denied. Yet the legacy of the issues can linger and negatively outwork in every area of our life.
Understanding how our inner being functions and can be damaged is a key to opening new doors for God’s healing work in our lives.
This course clearly outlines the fundamental understanding of who we are as people, what is really going in our inner being, and how past experiences have affected us and left us with struggles we can’t seem to break through.
It will help untangle the causes and effects of inner damage as well as how to apply God’s Truth and bring hope and healing to the hidden and hurting places within.
The following topics will be covered:
I have learnt a lot, I feel freer in spirit, I have been humbled, I have been healed of a neck and arm injury, released from some generational ties. He is amazing!
When Jesus spoke, it touched all generations, all personalities and all cultures. It is the same today! The teaching on our courses is primarily grounded in biblical truth and also includes lessons learned from ministering to people over many years.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12, ESV
