Dear Prospective Student of God’s Word:
Greetings in the blessed and powerful name of Jesus (Yeshua)! I want to personally thank you for your interest in Biblical Life. As you read through our website, you will find several things out about us: (1) we have a passion to train and equip those called to ministry, (2) we stay on the cutting edge of what God is doing and teaching to the Church, and (3) we are up front and honest to a fault. With that said, let’s get started!
There are many schools out there. They range from the traditional, regionally accredited schools (that can be unaffordable and even tainted with humanistic philosophies) to very cheap schools that offer nothing more than Sunday School curriculum, which does not facilitate growth in your life but only gives you a degree to hang on the wall. You want more than that for your life and ministry! Then there is Biblical Life. Why is Biblical Life so different? We make you work for your degree and require you to develop the skills necessary to function at the level that the degree represents.
We balance out solid academic and research modules with cutting-edge spiritual instruction that will place the fire of God in your heart, transformation in your life, and the tools in your hands to change this world by the power of God. We have dedicated our lives to making your education affordable, not in making ourselves wealthy or building an educational empire.
See, I told you that we are up front and honest. Now the question is: “Are you ready to receive the education you need and also the transformation to become who God has called you to be?” If you are, then read through our catalog, pray, and get in contact with our office to guide you through the enrollment process. We are here to serve as your educational consultants in the Kingdom of God. You will find that He is up front and honest, too. If Biblical Life can meet your needs, we will point you to the right program. If we can’t, we will point you to the right school. How is that for Kingdom integrity?
We are waiting to roll up our sleeves and work with you to prepare you to fulfill your calling in God!
Sincerely Yours for Excellence in Christian Education,
Michael K. Lake, Th.D., D.R.E.
Chancellor and Founder
News and Updates at Biblical Life College and Seminary
In Philippians 3:13-14, the Apostle Paul provides spiritual wisdom for overcoming the past and moving forward to what each of our purposes are in the Body of Christ. It seems that a trap of the enemy is either to cause us to continually dwell on failures and wounds of the past or to live only in past accomplishments. God is not done with us yet! Believers are facing some of the greatest challenges of our times and God is releasing a fresh anointing to prepare us and empower us to rise to meet the unfolding of end-time prophecy in a powerful way. This message can be a real game-changer in your life. Isn’t it time that you take your life out of neutral and begin moving toward the Kingdom purpose for your life and family?
Secrets of The Brick Layers
By Michael K. Lake, Th.D.
In researching this portion of my upcoming book The Shinar Directive, I really struggled with what aspects of the Tower of Babel story to examine. I could easily dive into the rich minutia contained within this story and miss the main points that we need to explore. So, before I examine this unfinished conspiracy, let’s look at some basic information regarding the Tower of Babel.
1. The gathering: Nimrod gathered the people together in direct defiance to God’s instruction for Noah to replenish the earth. Men working together also served as a mechanism to build a society in which men need not walk with the Creator to survive and thrive. They developed reliance upon one another (secular system) and developed gods most likely based upon the legend of the Watchers and the Nephilim.
2. The construction: This tower/altar was made of bricks (more on this shortly) and sealed with bitumen. Bitumen is asphalt in its natural state. This substance would have made the tower waterproof.[i] Again, this reinforces the concept that they were preparing themselves to withstand another judgment flood.
3. Make a name and prevent scattering: I will address the concept of making a name for the citizens of Babylon a little later in this chapter. Their refusal to scatter shows their absolute determination to defy the instruction of God.
4. The symbolic meaning of the tower: Dr. Edward F. Murphy, in his Handbook for Spiritual Warfare, states the following:
Again this supports our spiritual warfare interpretation of the sin of Babel leading to God’s judgment. Satan, “the god of this world,” building on the corrupt flesh of man (his pride) and his worldly ambitions, was the spirit behind the Tower of Babel. Wenham says, “Throughout Scripture Babylon is seen as the embodiment of human pride and godlessness that must attract the judgment of almighty God.” It is also the symbol of the rejection of the true God and the creation of god systems which are created by men to meet their own selfish wants.[ii] (Emphasis added)
So the tower served as an occult symbol of the rejection of the Creator and the establishment of a god system that catered to the sinful/carnal desires of fallen man.
