Dear Brethren and Friends
 
Need
 
Education in preparation for successful work in the vineyard of the Lord has always been a
Bible mandate. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15. It is insufficient for a person to
be a good orator. In order to have God’s blessing, one must rightly divide the word of God.
To prepare a person for such labour is the work of education. “The cause of God needs
efficient men. Education and training are rightly regarded as an essential preparation for
business life; and how much more essential is thorough preparation for the work of presenting
the last message of mercy to the world.” Counsels to Parents, Teachers and Students, p. 538.
 
As important as training is, many are not able to experience the normal setting of
attending one of our missionary schools for a full time two year experience. Others are able to
attend only a seminar styled program that by its nature is not able to cover many important
subjects. For that reason many dedicated workers and lay members do not have the optimal
training necessary to meet the challenges facing the church in its evangelistic thrust. “Hard
study and hard work are required to make a successful minister or a successful worker in any
branch of God's cause. Nothing less than constant cultivation will develop the value of the
gifts that God has bestowed for wise improvement.” Counsels to Parents, Teachers and
Students, p. 539.
 
Keliy Bible College
 
Seeing the requirement of a platform to satisfy the needs of those unable to attend the
normal missionary school program, the 2007 General Conference Session made the following
resolution:
 
WHEREAS, the possibility to establish an online missionary school has been considered,
and having in view that such a school would save a lot of expenses, giving still to
interested brethren the possibility to study, it was RESOLVED, that the Missionary
Department in conjunction with the Education Department should establish as soon as
possible an online missionary school. Practical courses shall be required as part of this
program.
 
 
After evaluating such possibilities during the past term, the General Conference is pleased
to announce the formation of Keliy Bible College with initial live internet classes beginning in
January 2013 that will enable you to complete a module credited towards the completion of
the entire course. Once you register, you will receive instruction on how to join the webinar
based course. During the next few years, anytime courses will also be developed to
complement the live lectures.
 
Keliy (pronounced kel-eé) is the Hebrew word [Strong’s #3627 yliK. keliy {kel-ee'}]
which is translated as vessel, instrument, weapon, jewel, armor bearer, or armor. Since our
goal is to prepare a people as workers in the army of Christ, this word clearly describes the
purpose of the school. Hence the name Keliy Bible College—as they are solders guided by the
principles of Scriptures. “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”
2 Timothy 2:3. Our motto is Equipping Soldiers for Christ, and the Bible verse expressing
our purpose is Proverbs 20:15: “the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel (keliy).”
 
Why Attend
 
You may wonder if you need to attend such a school in order to have success. There have
been many successful workers in the past who have excelled in their achievements without
the discipline of a formal type of education. They trusted in God and wrestled with Him for
His blessing and were considered successful. The Spirit of Prophecy answers such an idea.
 
“Today He is calling for young men and women who are strong and active in mind and
body. He desires them to bring into the conflict against principalities and powers and spiritual
wickedness in high places, their fresh, healthy powers of brain, bone, and muscle. But they
must have the needed preparation. Some young men are urging their way into the work who
have no real fitness for it. They do not understand that they need to be taught before they can
teach. They point to men who, with little preparation, have labored with a measure of success.
 
But if these men were successful, it was because they put heart and soul into the work. And
how much more effective their labors might have been if at the first they had received suitable
training!” Counsels to Parents, Teachers and Students, p. 538.
 
What kind of success are you looking for? Do you want to have this training?
 
Prophecy
 
We are a people of prophecy. The great Advent movement that we identify as the first
angel’s message was begun by the study of great prophetic events. As we study prophecy, we
see the mighty hand of our Creator accomplishing His will. “Remember the former things of
old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the
end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My
counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” Isaiah 46:9-10.
 
What is it that we can understand by the study of prophecy? “In the annals of human
history, the growth of nations, the rise and fall of empires, appear as if dependent on the will
and prowess of man; the shaping of events seems, to a great degree, to be determined by his
power, ambition, or caprice. But in the word of God the curtain is drawn aside, and we
behold, above, behind, and through all the play and counterplay of human interest and power
and passions, the agencies of the All-merciful One, silently, patiently working out the
counsels of His own will.” Prophets and Kings, pp. 499-500.
 
It is for this reason that we need to study prophecy as a preparation for the work of
evangelizing the world. “Prophecy and history should form a part of the studies in our
schools, and all who accept positions as educators should prize more and more the revealed
will of God.” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 525. As we stand on the boarders of the
promised land, God wants His people to be prepared for the final events of this earth’s
history. To prepare such a people He reveals to us future events. “Surely the Lord GOD will
do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7.
 
What will happen when we study the prophecies in close connection with the conversion
experience? “The perils of the last days are upon us, and in our work we are to warn the
people of the danger they are in. Let not the solemn scenes which prophecy has revealed be
left untouched. If our people were half awake, if they realized the nearness of the events
portrayed in the Revelation, a reformation would be wrought in our churches, and many more
would believe the message. We have no time to lose; God calls upon us to watch for souls as
they that must give an account. Advance new principles, and crowd in the clear-cut truth. It
will be as a sword cutting both ways. But be not too ready to take a controversial attitude.
There will be times when we must stand still and see the salvation of God. Let Daniel speak,
let the Revelation speak, and tell what is truth. But whatever phase of the subject is presented,
uplift Jesus as the center of all hope, ‘the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and
morning Star.’” Revelation 22:16.” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, pp. 61-62.
 
Please refer to the next page for the full Course Description, Prerequisites, and Schedule.
 
We trust that this program will interest you and that you will be benefited by the training.
“With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the
message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!
How soon might the end come--the end of suffering and sorrow and sin! How soon, in place
of a possession here, with its blight of sin and pain, our children might receive their
inheritance where ‘the righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever;’ where ‘the
inhabitant shall not say, I am sick,’ and ‘the voice of weeping shall be no more heard.’ Psalm
37:29; Isaiah 33:24; 65:19.” Ed 271.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Director at
plausevic@sdarm.org at any time. We look forward to hearing from you.
May God richly bless you as you prepare to attend the very first live, on-line training
session.

Course Description
 
The complete school description will be available on our website by the end of 2013.
Preliminary general course information will be available but the final outline will be ready by
the end of the year. You may track the development on www.keliybiblecollege.org or
www.keliy.org as soon as the websites are operational (by the end of 2012).
 
The first module in our on-line course will be the study of the book of Daniel (Prophecy
02). In the complete school program, some courses will be offered live while others will be
simply on line. The courses that are simply on line still need to be developed while live
courses can be at scheduled times. This will give the opportunity for at least some student
teacher interaction.
 
We will be covering the book of Daniel (1-12) with Peter D Lausevic as the teacher.
 
Prerequisites
 
In order to participate, the following prerequisites need to be fulfilled:
 
1. Desire to understand and do the will of God.
 
2. Although you do not need to be a member of the SDARM while attending the course,
you will need to have a recommendation of an ordained elder of the SDARM.
 
a. However, when the entire school course is completed and you fulfill all the
required modules, membership is required for graduation. This may take some
time as the course is designed for a two-year fulltime program and includes a
practical course that must be attended for three months.
 
b. Many classes emphasize the need for conversion and baptism so if you have
not already decided so, there will be plenty of opportunity and urging along the
way.
 
c. Keep in mind this is a missionary school. As such, a person cannot graduate
such a program designed to teach others the way of salvation if one has not
made such a commitment himself.
 
d. Attending the course is a good way to begin and you would be welcomed.
 
3. Apply for the course by the deadline, Monday, December 31, 2012. The earlier you
apply the sooner you can get your material and be ready on time.
 
4. Pay the course fee (USD$95.00) after being approved by the school board. This fee
includes the text book Understanding Daniel by Peter D Lausevic. Details will be
given upon application being approved. Additional donations above this amount are
welcomed as there are many places that students would not be able to pay even such a
low cost.
 
5. Set aside the time to attend the complete course (live class time of 4 ½ hours per
week) from beginning to end as well as personal time after classes for study and
preparation (usually at least eight hours per week).
 
6. Reasonable understanding of the English language as classes are in English.
 
7. Access to a compatible computer (or tablet device) with high speed internet
connection (512 Kbps minimum). Poor internet connection will severely limit the
benefit of this course as it is a live program running video streaming along with live
visuals and an ability to communicate with the teacher by texting questions or
comments.
 
 
For full technical requirements refer to the Client specifications at

Schedule
 
The course on the book of Daniel will be held once per week for 4 ½ hours on a given
day. As the course is live, we have taken consideration of time zones as well as the busy
schedule we all have. There will be two options listed below. You will need to decide which
class option is best for you. You may not be able to change to other class times after
registration.
 
Keep in mind that when there is a change between Daylight savings time and regular time
in Australia it will affect the time of day in other parts of the world.
