Two men were gazing out the window from the second story of a building, watching people pass by in the street below. One of them asked, “What do you see?” They looked at the people in the street for a moment. Some were walking hurriedly, others did merchandise, and a few were sitting down at… Read More “How can we reach a world we never touch?”
Disclaimer: Again, another article by Bro. David Cooke, and a continuation of a previous post about modesty. There is not a ‘square inch’ of our lives, including our closets with which God is unconcerned. Even more, He cares about the heart behind what you wear, about whether your wardrobe reveals worldliness or godliness. All respectable… Read More My God, My Heart, and My Clothes
“DEATH.” A dark word that gives me a dark thrill. Every time I hear and think of it, it makes my heart ill. Death separates people, and it does not choose a time to come into our life. It does not choose who and what you are. Whether you are young or old, healthy or… Read More Overcoming the Fear of Death
Disclaimer: This is not an original post. But a re-posting of an article by Bro. David Cooke. I was very much blessed and hoping that this article could reach more women out there and be also blessed. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided… Read More The Beauty of Modesty & The Danger of Immodesty
A New Year is upon us. Whether we admit it or not, somewhere in the depths of our hearts, we keep promises and dreams that we aim to fulfill one day or another. But as months and days go by, we lose track of those promises; and the burning desire that kindles those dreams will soon… Read More New Year Resolution No More!
On that first day of AVPI 2011, teachers and students and everyone else were in a flurry of activity, hustling and bustling to get to their classrooms. Everybody was excited, and each person eager to learn something new and understand more of God’s Word. As the God-given teacher took his place up front, students also… Read More In a Relationship
It was June 2011 when I posted this on my blog. Reading back, I could still feel the intense emotion and gratitude that I felt from this event. A.V.P.I is not just an ordinary Bible School for me. It was the event that was used by God to wake me up from the reality of my spiritual life. I have been saved long before this but the growth in my Christian life had been so slow and almost stagnant.
For me, it’s a wake-up call. I venture to so many things but the one matters most was almost completely taken for granted. Thankfully, my God is still merciful and He has never forgotten me.… Read More An Open Letter to A.V.P.I
Worshipping God, fellowships, preaching, and blessings those are the memories I wouldn’t forget.
It was May, 2011, I was 12 years old, and a ministry was born, an instrument that would later be used by God, a ministry founded by Godly men guided by the Holy Spirit named AV 1611 Primer Institute.… Read More Precious Memories
As we all know, cars are designed for land transportation. But, if a car had a mind of its own and it decided to shift from travelling on land to flying or sailing, we all know that disaster would follow. The wheels of a car are made to roll on land, but when it deviates from the very object that it was designed for, namely the ground, and begins driving off a cliff or jumping in water, it will only hurt itself and others.… Read More A Study on Idols
“I could stand here and tell you what I used to be
I could tell of the change that’s come over me
for the Lord shed His Grace when He died on the tree
So I’ll let the blood Jesus shed speak for me… Read More I am What I am Because of His Grace
