It is called a school because that’s what it actually is; A school.
The first time I heard this line was a couple of years back when I was ‘crazily‘ pursuing God. I hardly left my room for weeks and many times for the entire holiday period as a student then, I won’t travel home or see my hostel gate more than twice.
All I knew was that Something I couldn’t explain and didn’t care about explaining or understanding was driving me.
This particular afternoon I was studying two Anointed books and my bible together when I suddenly stopped and began to laugh at myself.
For the first time, I asked myself what was really going on with me and immediately I asked that question, A voice replied to me saying
“You’re in the School of the Spirit”…
The person whom I later saw his form that afternoon.
Why did I start like this?
Because this short part of the story will help us easily understand what the School is about as It is hard to define.
The school of the Spirit is a “location in God” that he takes you to in other to Prune, Build, Equip and Prepare you for his Ordination for your life.
Take note of the Location in God part because The School of the Spirit isn’t in a physical location but utilizes Physical locations to achieve its aims.
What it means is that when God wants to admit you Into this school, He wants to take you from being a Casual everyday Christian to heaven’s pattern of a Christian but to do this,
There’s a Place where he’ll need to bring you into.
A place we sometimes call the Cave of Adullam in the Church today and is also referred to in the word as THE SECRET PLACE.
So the first thing about this school you should know is that its location is not Physical but located in a Place in the Spirit that only God knows which is why it is a SECRET place.
It is in this School the Secrets about your Life and destiny as written by God (Holyspirit) when he first spoke (The father) you into being are kept.
Like I said before, It utilizes Physical locations also for its activities to Prosper In Your life but depending on Your kind of assignment and God’s will, You can sometimes be taken into the real place in the Spirit.
The reason I decided to add the Father and HolySpirit part above is that I wanted to let us know that the reason it is called the school of the Spirit is because it is the HOLY SPIRIT who is in charge of it. Not God the father or God the Son.
The Holyspirit is the Scribe who writes down everything the father spoke concerning you before you were born with the responsibility of revealing and showing them to you and building you to walk in them on earth.
The essence of this seemingly unnecessary digression is that “IF YOU STILL WANT TO CONTINUE DISREGARDING THE HOLY SPIRIT, BE REST ASSURED THAT IT IS ONLY IN DREAMS AND VISIONS YOU’LL SEE YOURSELF FULFIL DESTINY. Selah.
In this school, The Holyspirit is the representation of Hegai the chamberlain, Keeper of the women in Esther 2:8-9 charged with the assignment of purification, Grooming, and Beautification before appearance before the King is granted.
He’s the lecturer and also the Vice-chancellor of the School.
So it came to pass when the king’s commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together unto Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Esther was brought also unto the king’s house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women.
And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens, which were meet to be given her, out of the king’s house: and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women.
Let me interpret a few of the Prophetic language used in coding the book of Esther as it would help us when doing a further study of the book.
Verse 2 …Young virgins represent born again believers
Verse 8 King’s house is the School of the Spirit and Hegai is the Holyspirit. They are called ‘women’ here because none of them is a bride yet though all are virgins.
Note: Remember the King needs a Bride.
Verse 9…They were given things for Purification.
Doesn’t it surprise you that they were virgins yet they weren’t Pure?
That’s why being Born again isn’t an automatic qualification to become the Bride of the Lamb. It is for this purpose some virgins called foolish in the parable by Jesus missed the Wedding and never became brides to the groom when he eventually showed up while another set qualified. Remember they were all virgins.
Every born-again believer is a part of the Church or body of Christ but not all members of the Church are brides of the Lamb.
Read Matthew 25:1-10 for this parable.
The essence of this is to let us know that it is also for this purpose that the School of the Spirit exists, To build us into that kind of man/woman that Jesus is looking for and that can fulfill the desires of his heart.
Hope you haven’t forgotten that the glory of the Man is invested and seen/revealed through his wife/bride for the woman is the glory of the man?
1 Corinthians 11:7
For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
So God has always been looking for Men and Women among the general Church or larger body of Christ on whom he can invest and reveal his Glory, Power, and Dimensions. When he finds them, The School of the Spirit is where they are admitted into.
From all I’ve said thus far you would have realized by now that it is not every believer that is in the School yet And that is why it looks like God is really seen in only a few among the entire church and it is these ones he lifts.
It’s not because he abandoned the others but because not all are willing to pay the price to be enrolled In that school. As simple and direct as it looks in Esther 2, Purification isn’t a joking matter.
Look at the items of purification which are all encoded in Prophetic languages.
Now when every maid’s turn was come to go into king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odors, and with other things for the purifying of the women;)
“Myrrh, Sweet Odours, and Other things” are all Prophetic words. Myrrh is an Oil used in Israel and the Middle East for embalming dead bodies. Remember one of the gifts given to Jesus was Myrrh to signify his death.
So the first part of the purification to become a truly separated bride to the King was death, to the flesh, the world all of its encumbrances.
Now ask yourself, As common as the word die to self and Cross are today in Christianity, How many believers have actually laid their lives down to really die?
Or maybe I should rephrase the question, You want Prosperity and other things God has but have you truly laid your life down to die to the flesh and self?
Since when the Holyspirit told you to delete your social media apps from your phone and pay attention to him, have you obeyed?
You kept posting it till the Urge left your heart.
Study the book of Esther for more understanding of the School and its operations.
It is my earnest prayer that the grade required to stay with God until Christ be seen in and through you be released to you in Jesus name!
Whatever keeps turning your Spiritual fire into ice, let the Holyspirit do a surgery on your hearts in Jesus name!
God bless you
