“For these last few years, (yes it took me a little longer to get through it,) I have been blessed with amazing teaching from very competent and engaging lecturers that brought the truth of what it means to be a minister of the gospel and unpacking of what that gospel is. Through the years I have studied at different colleges and always found it heavy going, but this has been an utter delight. I also have a passion to continue to study and Axx has given me the quality yet affordability to get further qualifications in my lifes work to be a blessing to others. So blessed and appreciative of all that I have had the privilege to learn from. I thoroughly recommend this course to those wishing to know our incredible God more and how to express that knowledge to others in clear and understandable terms..”

Old testament overview

November 2, 2022

After listening and reading through and confirming the teachings with the scriptures. The Biblical narrative has opened my mind to link the old testament to the new testament and how God has always planned to include everyone into the plan of salvation. It has brought an understanding that despite the Israelites/Jews being the chosen people in the beginning, God intended to extend His plan of salvation to everyone even to the gentiles who by faith in Jesus Christ would receive the circumcision of their hearts through the receiving of the Holy Spirit so that everyone becomes the partakers of salvation.

The prophets in the old testament pointed towards Jesus Christ as the Messiah and the true King , the salvation and life Himself.

Meaning and application

By the grace of God, I have acquired the skill to understand the meaning of scripture text, how to translate it from the biblical context, compare it with other scriptures, and applying it to my life. Also, I have learned about the explicit and concrete principle of the scriptures which is God’s statement to us on how we should live. The word of God has now become personal to me, before teaching others

Analysis and application of the Bible teachings

November 2, 2022

The teaching has helped me to have an understanding of how to approach Biblical teachings, stories and verses in that we should be open minded to the setting of the Bible passages, author, timing, culture, location and to understand the circumstances around those particular writings in the Bible before applying those texts to our current lives. We must create a link and understand the contexts and several clues to various Bible passages.

THOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH...

November 2, 2022

I return the glory and honor unto God Almighty who made it possible for me to enroll in this course work at no cost. I am grateful to the founder and his executives for being so generous and warm hearted to afford us such a noble privilege. May God richly reward you all.

I thank God for the improved exposure to his word since I joined this ministry. Inherited core values and culture in many parts of Africa’s society interfere with the interpretation of the reality of the text; so that lots of us became religiously inclined rather than scripturally based, if you know what I mean. Most of us can recite scriptures and even quote them out of context to suit or appease the circumstances or a prayer session. For instance: It is common to find many who would quote Luke 1:37 (NKJ) “…with God all things are possible.” I had almost believed that my availability and/or will were not counted if God was involved; until I beheld Andrew’s teachings on contextual reading. I went back to that scripture and reviewed it from verse 26, to actually understand that the angel was addressing Mary, a virgin, who was already pale and shaking, I can imagine, into letting her to believe and confess according to God’s word. Where would Mary have ever got that faith to be the mother of Jesus, if God didn’t help but first believing and then make available. Immediately that happened in verse 38, the messenger left. Since then my perception on Luke 1:37 has changed. I now know that it is not only ‘with God’ but that I have to believe and confess what God says before it shall come to pass.

Notwithstanding, I couldn’t quite follow the extract principle and the example with 3 John 2. I think Andrew was repeating the same thing Paul meant when he said, “I pray that you…” meaning a wish. It is true to think therefore that not everybody were going to prosper as re-echoed by Andrew and therefore can be applied to other scriptures. Furthermore I’m struggling with understanding how Jesus’ comment of not serving two masters tie up with 3 John 2. Can you further help please? Thanks

The unit opens my understanding to God’s call and how to respond to it. I also learned the differences between gifts and call. Ministry being service and areas I can service. I learned about Church based service, work or market based service and community based service and aligning myself with God’s purpose. I now see call and ministry much better. I pray that God will help me to align myself to his will.

Refining & Reinforcing my Call & Gifts

November 2, 2022

War is happening to my people. I saw war and destruction before the actual war was happening. I tried to war the elites from community. Except few, no one was influenced and warned by my writing and speaking. Then the war erupted and human and material destruction followed.

I left my job and studied the administrative and political history of my people or region for more than two years. I want to articulate their history, values and administration. I believed this is what I can do to my people and region. I believed that is my call for contribution to create dynamic, vibrant and progressive society. The society is decayed due to the communist political forces halt its progress for political power. They see poor and dependent society is good for their power. So when I took this course it reinforced and refined my understanding and acceptance of my call. Thank you very much, especially Regan.

The father, Son and Holy Spirit

October 27, 2022

it is so amazing how trinity was simplified . One amazing things was how the holy spirit was defined. as church we turn to deem the holy spirit minor from the Father and Son and yet they have the same authority . We are living on days of the holy spirit therefore we really need to understand who he is , the bible says the voice of the Lord thunders and Jesus voice sometimes explained as the rushing waters which is to audible , therefore we need the whispers of the holy spirit to be able to communicate and engage with God.

Previously l had a blurred perception of the trinity of God.lt was difficult for me to clearly intergret the 3 persons of God as one without confusion.lt made my presentations and prayers haze.After this course l am now well informed concerning the trinity of God,how they are named separately yet working hand in hand for the same cause to establish the Kingdom of God on earth.Some of the jargon was a bit much for me but the teachings and explanation of the presenter in the talks made it all clear and understandable,it opened me up to understand there is a lot of research and study l still need to do to know more about the works of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

My Journey with AXX

October 25, 2022

I love to study about discipleship because I love to learn and enjoy studying. When I came across Axx courses being advertise, I wasted no time and enrolled to study the courses being offered.

From day one I lived the courses and the method of teaching. I have downloaded the teachings so that I can refer to them time and again when need be.

I have been very blessed with the lessons on preaching. We were taught the subject at Bible school, but it wasn’t as clear as I got it here.

These lessons have helped improve my understanding of the Word of God and also improved my preaching.

You people are doing a great job, you don’t know how much your teachings are bless many of us that cant afford to pay and attend a good Bible school. Apart from that you are helping the truth to be preached and also helping to remove the imposter pastors, as the knowledge of God’s Word increases.

The Lord God Almighty bless you ever so richly.

Many a times is when you struggle on how to handle difficult topic. But with the topic having addressed here it has helped in knowing it’s not what I say that matters but rather it’s how I say it.

God bless you.

Sermon Design and Delivery

October 25, 2022

This topic blessed me so much. I have learnt that a sermon points to someone greater than the preacher [Jesus]. Preaching is to proclaim the good news of a king and his kingdom. The gospel does not come in words only but in power and Holy Spirit.

I also learnt how to address difficult topics in preaching which touches areas like marriages, sexuality and forgiveness. You need to be empathy and sensitive to people’s pain.
