The Forerunner Call

Class Overview

Understanding the Forerunner Call is the introductory class in Lifeschool’s Forerunner School. This exciting class casts the vision and lays a solid foundation for the call for end-time forerunners who will operate in the spirit and power of Elijah. This class draws heavily from the lives of biblical forerunners, specifically from the lives of Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, and the apostle Paul. The class consists of twelve sessions beginning with a comparison of the days of Elijah to the days in which we live. In making the comparison between the confrontation between Elijah and Ahab and Jezebel, the great need for forerunners in our generation comes alive. The class then devotes the next three sessions to defining the call of an end-time forerunner connecting the call of forerunners to the need to restore the church back to God’s original intent and eternal purpose. The class includes a detail explanation of the spirit and power of Elijah and the importance of forerunners ministering in this anointing. The class moves from there to describe four primary functions of forerunners: 1) forerunners as end-time messengers, 2) forerunners as wise master builders, 3) forerunners as intercessors, and 4) forerunners as friends of the Bridegroom. The class concludes with sessions on the preparation of forerunners and how to build a forerunner mission base. This class sounds a clarion call for the church of our generation to arise as a voice into the church to lead it back to its foundation of Christ and God’s eternal purpose. This class is filled with fresh information and is a must for anyone desiring to minister as a forerunner in these urgent days in which we live.
