Vision and Mission

  1. Encountering Bible Prophecy from the Witness of Dr Billye Brim.
  2. Dr. Billye Brim’s life call is a Witness, “of things she has seen and heard” (Acts 26:16). From over 40 years of experience, she brings witness to you in a school setting. 3BI is unique in that classes will be based squarely on the Bible with emphasis on its one-half to two-thirds prophetic content.
  3. Together, and from many sources, 3BI brings life to Bible Prophecy—which is not just a dull seminary class but is the prediction and fulfillment of “the living breathing Word of God” revealed by the Prophets as a “Light Shining in a Dark Place” (2 Peter 2:19-21).
  4. Learning Bible Prophecy Together, “Oh what a Planner, Oh what a Plan.” – Dr. Billye Brim

 


History of Billye Brim Bible Institute

Dr. Billye Brim believes she does her best teaching in front of a live studio audience! Therefore every course in the online school was recorded either at Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks or at a meeting place in Branson, Missouri. The classes are labeled as Charter Courses and the attendees are Charter Students. They have come from all over the United States at their own expense to be a part of this unique opportunity.

Our first Charter Course, Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word, was held in December, 2018 at Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks.

In February, 2020 our online school, Billye Brim Bible Institute (3BI), officially launched. 3BI has steadily grown to over 1,700 online students as of May, 2024.

 


Course Catalogue

COURSE 1

Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

CREDITS: 2 Credits
PREREQUISITE: None

Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word is an introduction to prophecy in Scripture. The Bible—the Word of God—is God’s plan, and we need to know where we fit in it. This course will establish foundational principles of Bible interpretation that will guide how we understand and apply the Scriptures in general and Bible prophecy in particular.

 


COURSE 2

Bereishit: The World That Then Was

CREDITS: 2 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

Much of the Bible is prophetic in nature. In Bereishit: The World That Then Was (see 2 Peter 3:6), we will examine the creation of the cosmos and of man. We will see the fall of Lucifer and the fall of man. And we will explore God’s plan to make himself and His plan of redemption known through His Chosen People, the Jews.

 


COURSE 3

Bereishit: In The Beginning

CREDITS: 2 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Bereishit: The World That Then Was

The concept of covenant permeates the Scriptures from cover to cover. In this course, Bereishit: In The Beginning, we will examine the establishment of God’s covenant relationship as it related to both Am Israel (the people of Israel) and Eretz Israel (the land of Israel). Special attention will be given to a study of the word chesed. It is frequently translated as “grace,” “mercy,” “lovingkindness” and others, but none of these communicate the rich meaning behind chesed.

 


COURSE 4

Virtual Israel Tour

CREDITS: 4 Credits
PREREQUISITE: No prerequisite required. Open to all.

See Israel as never before! With Dr. Brim’s 40+ years of experience studying and learning the land and the people you will get to tour and encounter Israel in a first-class video production from the comfort of your home.

 


COURSE 5

Book of Daniel

CREDITS: 4 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

The Book of Daniel is a unique blend of historical narrative and prophecy of history yet to come. In the first half of the Book, Daniel tells how God used him during the Babylonian Captivity and how he was able to stand firm in the midst of a pagan culture. God even used him to interpret the dream of the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar.

In the second half of the Book, Daniel looks into the future and speaks of events important especially to the Jews. He goes so far as to give a timeline for the coming of Israel’s Messiah.

 


COURSE 6

Book of Revelation

CREDITS: 4 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word AND The Book of Daniel

The Book of Revelation is the revealing of the events surrounding the return of Jesus, the Messiah and King of Kings, to the Earth. And yet, this Book reveals things past, things present, and things to come (Revelation 1:19). While the Book was penned by John the Apostle, one of the “Sons of Thunder,” it is the “Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ” delivered through John (Revelation1:1).

This book is closely connected to the Book of Genesis. While Genesis tells of the beginning of this age—this week of millennia—the Book of Revelation unveils the story of its end. And it reveals to us how the mind of God saw the end from the beginning.

 


COURSE 7

Book of Ephesians

CREDITS: 3 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

Glory. Authority. Unity. Mystery. These themes permeate Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. In Ephesians, Paul details key principles concerning the believer’s redemption and resulting position and responsibility in the heavenlies. We also learn how we are to walk out in our lives the reality of who we are in Christ.

One of the main practical themes in the Book of Ephesians is the authority of the believer. It is this theme that makes Ephesians so relevant today. Without understanding the authority which has been given to us as believers in Jesus, it is difficult or even impossible to accomplish God’s purpose for our lives, especially in the end of days.

 


COURSE 8

Book of Ezekiel

CREDITS: 3 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

The Book of Ezekiel opens with a vision. This was significant because God’s people had been carried away into captivity in Babylon. It was not clear if the presence of the Lord and the Word of the Lord would accompany them into captivity. It definitely had, and as a captive in Babylon, the prophet Ezekiel spoke the Word of the Lord to those who were with him.

Many different judgments were pronounced on other countries and their leaders. But for Israel, judgment is not to be the end. In a manner that will cause people to “know that I Am the Lord,” God will turn the days of mourning into days of joy and gladness and judgments into a time of national cleansing for Israel.

 


COURSE 9

Book of Zechariah

CREDITS: 3 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

Zechariah, son of Berechiah, a young man, a priest, and a prophet, wrote to the captive Israelites in Babylon. While emphasizing the strength of God’s character as the “Lord of Hosts” (or armies), He called his people to repentance.

Through visions and words from the Lord, Zechariah illustrates great and comforting truths such as the Lord’s future plan to dwell in the very midst of His people and that His people are the “apple of his eye.” And even though it is necessary for judgment to come to His people, “that day” will come when the Lord “will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and … the glory in the midst of her” (Zechariah 2:9).

 


COURSE 10

Watching the Fig Tree, Part 01

CREDITS: 5 Credits
PREREQUISITE: Eschatology: Rightly Dividing the Word

As a student of Billye Brim Bible Institute, you have been called to “such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). This is the time about which Jesus was speaking in Luke 21 when He said, “Behold the fig tree and all the trees. When they now shoot forth, ye see and know …” He told us, as Dr. Billye Brim put it, “that the sign of His coming is the fig tree—Israel.” So as we have seen Israel bud and sprout leaves in returning to her Promised Land, our response is to watch her, so that we can discern the “signs of the times.”

The purpose of this class is to delve into the past in order to observe how the “fig tree” began—as a witness to God’s existence. Also, we will consider God’s dealings with His people and how He prophetically described the outcomes of whichever path they would choose. We will look at macro examples of God’s plan for the future of Israel, as in the Book of Jeremiah. We will also take a close look at some specific individuals who had a big impact on the re-creation of the State of Israel as she began to fulfill God’s promise of “Ingathering.”
