It is our mission and vision to

SHARE JESUS CHRIST AND TEACH THE WORD OF GOD

creative bible teaching

 

We believe that God is calling us to share Jesus Christ and teach God’s Word, Love, and Truth in a creative and visual way.

At our ministry, we believe that God is calling us to share the message of Jesus with others in a way that is creative, engaging, and visually impactful. We believe that the Gospel is good news that has the power to change lives, and we are committed to finding new and innovative ways to share it with others. We also believe that the Bible is the foundation for all true knowledge and wisdom, and we are passionate about teaching God’s Word in a way that is accessible and relevant to people’s lives.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16

And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” Matthew 13:52

EDIFY CREATIVITY TO SERVE AND WORSHIP GOD

encouraging creativity

 

We believe that God is calling us to encourage and edify you and your creativity to serve and worship God.

We believe that every Christian is called to use their gifts and talents to serve and worship God, and we are committed to encouraging and edifying people in their creativity. Whether you are an artist, musician, writer, or simply someone who loves to create, we believe that you have a unique and valuable role to play in God’s kingdom. We offer resources, support, and community for Christians who want to use their creativity to engage with the Word of God and to share the Gospel with others.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24

Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, Ephesians 5:19 

EQUIP BELIEVERS AND DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST

equipping believers

 

We believe that God is calling us to equip you with Bible-based resources that help, edify, and encourage you to connect your faith and creativity, spread the Gospel, and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

At our ministry, we believe that God is calling us to equip believers and disciples of Jesus Christ with the tools and resources they need to grow in their faith and to live out their calling. We offer a wide range of Bible-based resources that are designed to help, edify, and encourage people to connect their faith and creativity, to spread the Gospel, and to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Whether you are looking for Bible studies, devotional materials, or creative resources, we believe that we have something to offer that can help you grow in your faith and make a difference in the world.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:11-16


Did you know that we are all creative?

Not only artists, designers, musicians, artisans, etc. are creative. We are all creative because God is the Creator and He created us in the image of Him. We are co-creators with God who gives us talents, gifts, and abilities unique to ourselves reflecting our wonderful Creator. 

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

We are co-creators with God.

For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:9

When we create, we please God, serve, and glorify Him because it’s a reflection of the image of God.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

We are a non-denominational Bible-believing Christian ministry trained and equipped at the Christian Leaders Institute.


About The Author

janet portrait My name is Janet Giessl. I’m a disciple and servant of Jesus Christ (Present-Day Prophetic Scribe according to Matthew 13:52, Matthew 23:34, Ezekiel 9; Judges 5:14, the Book of Ezra, 1 Corinthians 12:28, and Ephesians 4:11) instructed to share God’s Word, Love, and Truth and to lead people to Jesus Christ so they can be reconciled with God according to Matthew 28:16–20 and become disciples of Jesus Christ. I’m also a wife, mom, teacher, Christian Life Coach, author, blogger, and artist. I was born and raised as a Christian but struggled along my spiritual journey because I had a distracted heart and got curious in learning about so-called New Age teachings for quite some time. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. Titus 3:3 Fortunately, one day Jesus Christ appeared in my dreams and He saved me. I found salvation. I received a spiritual renewal and became a born-again Christian. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7 I’m so grateful for Jesus saved me and I’m walking with God again. who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 2 Timothy 1:9 

Personal Faith Journey

My faith journey in childhood/adolescence

My faith journey is quite a roller coaster ride. I was born and raised as a Catholic since my parents were both Catholics. Until I became an adolescent, I had been practicing the Catholic belief and been active in the Catholic Church. When I was about 13 or 14, I was introduced to the Protestant belief by my best friend and I was totally astonished by the differences between both denominations. While I was still a Catholic, I also went to the Protestant Church from time to time and got active there. Though the Protestant Church accepted me being a Catholic, I knew it was wrong according to the Catholic Church.

My faith journey as an adult

Then a time of withdrawing from both churches followed for many years. I only attended church occasionally and I didn’t read the Bible. I believed in God and in Jesus Christ but I had no relationship with God. I was not walking with God. When I met my husband who was baptized as a Georgian Orthodox, I left both the Catholic and the Protestant Church and agreed to get baptized in the Georgian Orthodox Church so we could marry in an Orthodox Church. Though I was baptized in a Georgian Orthodox Church, I have never been able to identify myself with this denomination. I lived many years as a lukewarm Christian.

My two-year experience with New Age/Occultism

Being a lukewarm Christian, however, left me unsatisfied and grew in me a hunger to find the truth. Since I wasn’t saved back then, Satan took advantage of my hunger and led me on a path that was dangerous and wrong. For two years starting in 2017, I dabbled in the New Age movement and occult practices like astrology, tarot, yoga, qi gong, shamanism, numerology, chakras, aura, starseeds, earth angels, etc.,

My salvation

Then Jesus appeared in my dreams and saved me. I became a born-again Christian (not a lukewarm Christian anymore) in 2019. Now when I look back at my time in the New Age and occult, I really feel ashamed because this was the time where I got deceived by Satan and was gradually moving away from God. I’m so glad and grateful that Jesus, who appeared one night in a dream and pointed me to the Bible, saved me by His grace and I believed that He died for our sins on the cross and resurrected to save us from eternal death which is the penalty for our sins. I believe and trust in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength. Mark 12:30

Studying at Christian Leader’s Institute

After my salvation I started to look for Bible Schools online where I could study. Since my financial situation hadn’t allowed me to pay for a Bible School, God led me to the Christian Leader’s Insitute one day. I couldn’t believe that they offered Bible School and Ministry Classes for free and that those who had the money could pay for the studies of other students. I’m so grateful for and impressed by this generosity-driven model of CLI because it allows people who don’t have the financial means to study the Word of God and become Christian Leaders. Praise the Lord and thank Him for having led the founders of CLI to create this amazing generosity-driven ministry. May their ministry and life be blessed forever. I hope and pray to get the financial means to give back because “‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35[spacer height=”15px”] Update: God has provided and I’m an Iron Vision Partner of CLI supporting others to be able to study at CLI. I started to study ministry at Christian Leaders Institute because I wanted to strengthen my faith and knowledge of God’s Word and share the Gospel and I felt called to go where God directed me to. After taking several really eye-opening and life-changing CLI classes, I got interested in taking the Life Coaching Ministry Class and becoming a certified Life Coach Minister (Life Coach Certification in 2020). As a teacher I have come across many people young and old who are suffering in their life because they haven’t found their God-given calling and purpose yet. Some are deceived because they follow false unbiblical teachings like I used to follow before I got saved. I feel that being a Life Coach Minister equips me fully to help people find the life, calling, and purpose God has given them and to overcome their struggles in life. It is a great complement to my teaching and prophetic gift. I’m continuing my studies at Christian Leaders Institute as a lifelong student.

Online ministry

After a time of growing in faith, studying the Bible, growing in my relationship with the Lord, growing in my spiritual gifts, God called me to and anointed me for ministry to spread His Word and share the truth with others, so that many people could also be saved as He saved me. God led me to the Apostolic-Prophetic Scribal Ministry of Theresa Harvard Johnson where I have received teachings and education about the Scribal Anointing. This helped me to finally find and understand my identity and calling in Christ. The Holy Spirit inspired me to create this website with the name “Wisdom From Heaven”. Since I’m a creative person, He encouraged me to combine God’s Word with the gift of creativity. For this reason, my Bible Teachings contain downloadable creative visuals and printables apart from writing. I hope to support and encourage you in your Bible Study and Christian Faith Journey.

Being led to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree

In 2020 I felt led by God to pursue a Bachelor Degree and since then I have been studying to obtain a Bachelor of Christian Leadership Degree. I haven’t thought about studying for another degree being in my 40s. Actually, I thought my former degrees were sufficient. Somehow I have had several dreams from God in which He made clear that I wasn’t finished with studying yet and that I needed to obtain another degree because this new degree would confirm the calling and ministry from God on my life which the former degrees hadn’t done. The endorsements I received from my husband and two Christian Leaders supported and confirmed the leading of God regarding my studies. I’m really excited and blessed to be on this journey God has put me on and I’m looking forward to where He is leading me!

RECOMMENDED SCHOOLS

    
We are a non-denominational Bible-believing Christian ministry trained and equipped at the Christian Leaders Institute. Even though our ministry is based on God's Word, the Bible, you need to approach our teachings like the Bereans and always study the Bible yourself to see if what we teach is aligned with what is written in the Bible.  

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Acts 17:11 NIV  

We are only humans who 'stumble in many ways' (James 3:2) and we only 'know in part and we prophesy in part' (1 Corinthians 13:9).
