When the Lord told me to start a prophetic school, I was stunned. I told the Lord that I didn't know how to do this. Although I did know how to minister and prophesy to His people, I didn't know anything about teaching, and I knew even less about administering an entire school around it! In January of 2002 during my prayer time, the Lord spoke to me and said,"Cristina, I want you to establish a prophetic school. He told me that it was a good thing that I didn't know anything because then He could truly use me through the guidance of His Holy Spirit. I knew that I had arrived at a crossroad. I could either give in to fear and walk away from my destiny, or allow God to stretch me and my faith. I chose the latter. I thought that I would be needing a few months to start a prophetic school, but the Lord gave me the curriculum right then and there. He had both Mike and me focus on developing the rightful characteristics of a true prophet. We concentrated on where and how to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ by understanding His ways, His heart, His will, discerning His voice and always revering His holiness.
Since then, we have had ten prophetic schools here in San Antonio. In 2006, we started the prophetic school in the Philippines and have since taught hundreds of pastors and ministers there. We are now about to start the prophetic school for the youth in that country.
The gift of prophecy is one of the most abused gifts of the Holy Spirit, but it is very important, especially in these last days. For those of us that God directed to teach, we discovered the importance of holy living and discipline to be God's mouthpiece. Two bible schools in the Philippines expressed a desire to teach a prophetic school and asked to use our curriculum in their colleges. We see this as an open door for us to be able to prepare and educate those who desire to operate in the gifts of prophecy and/or to disciple those that are called in the prophetic office.
Since our first big step of faith and obedience, we have had numerous manifestations of prophetic words spoken and given through this ministry. We have touched national leaders in the political arena as well as in the business sector here and abroad. Although we never claim that we have attained our goal (like the Apostle Paul) we are marching forward and will never stop until the Lord Jesus comes.
Now, we are directed to teach the prophetic school through our website to ministers all over the world, to pastors and other ministers in the Philippines, and other parts of the world who express a desire to attend.
We consider this a great privilege and honor for God to use us for this endeavor. We will always strive to be led by His Holy Spirit and continue to attain excellence and learn the many facets of our God.
