BASICS
 
Content Description & Itinerary
 
 
The following content and itinerary may seem overwhelming at first. But I (Pastor Ron) asks you to read/study this page in its entirety (and maybe come back several times) before you walk away. My passion is for men to be set free (justified and eternally saved) and learn how to live free in-and-from Jesus' Life (sanctified with an eternal joy that strengths our hearts to Live Free coz' We r Free!).
 
So, let's review BASICS' content and itinerary. At the bottom of the page find a link to begin enrollment.

PART 2: The Isaiah 40:31 Teaching
 
PART 3: The 2 Corinthians 5:21 Teaching
 
PART 4: The Isaiah 61:10 Teaching 
 
 
BASICS 104: diagnosti (36-hours over 3-to-6-months; i.e., an estimated 24 90-minute sessions—may not be run concurrent with Basics 103... 104 extends 103 another 3 to 6 months; i.e., another estimated 24 90-minute sessions)
 
diagnostiX is our Strategy Platform, consisting of eight journaling tools, which are designed to be corrective, counteractive, and curative. 
 
diagnostiX (Basics 104) is the remedial care provision—the heartbeat—of the 100 Series. It's what makes Basics real—personal and practical. With diagnostiX you grow to KNOW God's truth, RECKON God's truth as true about God and others, about you and your struggles, and YIELD your body—inside and out—to God's truth; so, you're enabled to WALK out of God's truth day after day, moment by moment. 
 
Without diagnostiX, you may know God's truth but haven't learned how to use it. So, you miss out on experiencing the PEACE of God's POWER (grace) and the Perspectives of God's Path (truth). Many, who journey through Basics: 101, 102, and 103 with enthusiasm, but stop with Basics: 104  find themselves frustrated with their inability to walk out God's truth consistently. Stuck on the treadmill of rules, instead of peacefully navigating the currents of relationship on the river of Life. Excusing their failures with fear and/or license. Missing the freedom that comes from obedience.  diagnostiX helps and heals this frustration. Picks up where teaching leaves off and makes use of all you learn. It's what make Basics personal and practical. Remedial.  
 
These diagnostiX tools are divided into two parts: 
 
diagnostiX PART 1
In diagnostiX PART 1 we learn about God & You... and there are four diagnostiX to help:
 
Protectorates (PRTs): learning to explain, self-talk, and pray God's Word.
 
Life Messages (LMs): learning how you think, choose, and feel the way you do, and why.
 
Connections (CNTs): learning to connect emotions with God's Word. 
 
Paradigms (PRDs): learning to connect thoughts with God's Word.
 
 
diagnostiX PART 2
In diagnostiX PART 2 we learn the differences between Jesus' Life and the self-life... and there's four diagnostiX to help: 
 
The Grace Walk (TGW): learning to strategically live from Jesus' Life...
exchanging old beliefs for new 
 
The Faith Walk (TFW): learning to strategically live by faith...
KNOW—RECKON—YIELD—WALK
 
The Ruse (D&D): learning to identify and strategically exchange the enemy's schemes for God & His Word...
resolving desires in conflict, by exchanging fleshly desires & delights for God's
 
The Pledge (NIDE): learning to strategically live as more than a conqueror...
wining the battle against sinning by learning to use biblical strategies like:
The Armor of God
The Fruit of the Spirit
The Psalms
etc.
 
 
AN ENCOURAGEMENT
The above content and its itinerary may seem long and tedious. So, let's capture such thoughts (even feelings) and set those beside God's Word.
 
Consider how long it takes a person to become addicted to pornography. Or how long some have been captured by its painful pleasures. Days? Weeks? Months? Years!? Decades!? 
 
Whatever amount of time you've invested in your addiction (your sin habit), consider how long it might take you to break free on your own. Keeping the status quo; doing the same thing over and over again and again; trying to stop; praying; even begging God to help you; asking Him to forgive you once again, only to fall prey to sin's hunts, haunts, and habits a few days later, maybe even just a few hours.
 
NHE's Find True Identity Discipleship is asking for 3 to 6 months, maybe 12-to-18-months of your time. With a promise—God's promise—found in Pastor Paul's first letter to the church in Corinth, which reads: 
We all experience times of testing (times of falling prey to temptation), which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust Him more, for along with every trial (i.e., temptation) God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously (1 Corinthians 10:13, the Passion).
 
Did you see it? God promises you a way of ESCAPE. And NHE's Find True Identity Discipleship just might be His way of escape for you. So, don't wait! Reach out to Pastor Ron NOW!
