Pew Research Center asked thousands of Americans where they find meaning in life. Their responses were rich, thoughtful and varied. Here are just a few examples of what they told us… “That’s a gosh darn big question for a survey like this, I’m used to the check boxes. I find meaning in career, family, spiritual […]
GOD DESIGNED HUMAN NATURE FOR LOVE By Jesse Morrell Everything God created has a function and a design. God created human nature. Therefore, human nature has a proper function and a design. What is the proper function that human nature was designed by God for? “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by […]
Nederlandse Reformatorische christenen beweren dat wij mensen vanuit onszelf niets zijn. Dat zou maar heel erg zijn. Gelukkig is dat niet zo en mogen wij er op aan dat elk menselijk wezen, gelovig of niet gelovig, wel degelijk “iets” en zelfs “iemand” is. Ieder individu heeft een eigenwaarde en heeft ook iets te betekenen in […]
President Trump, long a trafficker in anti-Semitic stereotypes, treated American Jews to a classic anti-Semitic canard Tuesday afternoon. When asked about two Congresswomen, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who had been barred from Israel at Trump’s own behest, he broke out an oldie but a goodie from the closet of anti-Semitic tropes. “Any Jewish people […]
Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? #2 Zonde. Overtreding van Gods wil Omdat God de mens maakte met een vrije wil, en daarmee vrijheid om te kiezen, kunnen wij zowel doen wat Hem behaagt als mishaagt. Dit laatste noemt God zonde. Maar wat is zonde precies en hoe komt deze […]
Het bewijs van Gods bestaan 1. De weg van veel goden naar geen God Een in het kader van ‘Bijbel en Wetenschap’ telkens weer opduikende vraag is: kun je Gods bestaan wetenschappelijk bewijzen? Of heeft de wetenschap juist bewezen dat Hij niet bestaat? Er zijn in principe twee manieren waarop je de beantwoording van zo’n […]
“Het is jammer dat als je kritiek op een religie uitoefent dat je dan opeens wordt neergezet als een boze, ‘witte’ man. Tegen dat ‘witte’ en dat man zijn kan ik niets doen. Boos ben ik eigenlijk nooit. Maar wat veel moslima’s met mij doen is precies wat ze mij verwijten.” ~Jan Jaap de Ruiter […]
Looking at the World Zionist movement and the true agenda of British notorious Belfour Declaration
There are two kinds of knowing – experience and understanding – and the confusion between them is the cause of all sorts of trouble for any thinking person – which is all of us. Experience is the knowing of things. It is exactly what appears to our senses precisely as it is without us doing […]
For those who think only god is the One Who Saves, forgives sins and blesses people.
“Without a single change in the law by Congress, the Trump public charge rules mean many more U.S. citizens are being and will be denied the opportunity to live together in the U.S. with their spouses, children, and parents,” said Ur Jaddou, a former Citizenship and Immigration Services chief counsel and now director of the […]

The Commission has published the 2019 edition of its yearly Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) review, this time dedicated to the theme of sustainability.

We sincerely should make some more work to have the young people come to see how it comes we may live in a peaceful Western Europe for nearly 75 years.

(An except from A Light to the Gentiles by Brother Jonathan Cope) Obedience to the laws of Egypt was clearly open to discretion where the royal house was concerned! Not only was the child saved, but, as proposed by his brave sister, a nurse was employed (Exodus 2:7-9). He was then sustained until he […]
Tomorrow several families shall come together to celebrate their mother and to remember the grandmothers. Without the mother there can not be a family. 15 August is that one day of the year we put her at a height. Much too often we caused her pain or gave her a lot of sorrows. Luckily most […]
I have been thinking a lot recently about the glory of God, and found it to be another of those wonderful golden threads that runs through the Bible from beginning to end. God’s glory, that is his presence, was there in the Garden of Eden when he walked with Adam and Eve. God later revealed […]
In the present issue of The Christadelphian an exposition article on the Year of Jubilee (by Brother Richard Snelling) shows another fine example of how Old Testament law has its greater fulfilment in the work of the Lord Jesus. Sister Beulah Edwards considers some of the ways that sisters can contribute positively to the work […]
Last month it was announced that Turkey had “been removed from the US’ F-35 Joint Strike Fighter programme after it took delivery of the Russian-made S-400 air defence system … The White House said: ‘Turkey’s decision to purchase Russian S-400 air defence systems renders its continued involvement with the F-35 impossible. The F-35 cannot coexist […]
De mens wil altijd meedoen, erbij horen, als die anderen zijn. Maar God heeft Zich een volk gekozen waarvan Hij verwacht dat zij anders zijn en zich als voorbeeld gedragen.
Maar al te graag maakten de mensen voor zich zelf uit wat zij deden en hoe zij hun bedoelingen konden veruiterlijken. Maar wij moeten beseffen dat het God uitmaakt wat goed genoeg is.
Kennismaking met bijzondere vrouwen en mannen in de Bijbel: de oudste zoon van koning Saul Bij Jonathan (God heeft gegeven), de oudste zoon van koning Saul,was geen sprake van jaloezie of eigen belang. In alle opzichten was hij het tegenovergestelde van zijn vader. Beiden bemerkten dat God met David was, en hem had aangewezen om […]
Kort voor het middaguur, op de weg naar Damascus, had Saulus vanTarsus niet kunnen dromen dat hem drie dagen later zou worden bevolen zijn zonden te laten afwassen. “Een geboren Hebreeër met de wetsopvatting van een Farizeeër”, zo beschreef hij zichzelf later (Filippenzen 3:5). Hij was iemand uit de partij van ‘de Reinen’, de Afgezonderden. […]
Ihr selbst seid von Gott gelehrt, einander zu lieben (1. Thes. 4:9) Jeder, ob jung oder alt, braucht Aufmerksamkeit, Ermunterung und Trost, wenn er entmutigt oder niedergeschlagen ist oder mit Schwierigkeiten kämpft (Spr. 12:25; Kol. 4:11). An unseren Worten und Taten ist unser aufrichtiges Interesse und unsere echte Liebe denen gegenüber zu erkennen, „die uns im […]
In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]
The first human beings had chosen to go their own path. As any good father would do when his children had done something wrong, God punished them. But as a loving Father He in His great mercy promised for a solution and preserved David’s bloodline and the Messianic promise. Mankind had chosen Yet, we each […]
Matthew 22:14 – Many Invited – Few Chosen MT22:14 “For many are invited but few chosen.” *  Many are invited: The Greek is KLETOI and is rendered by either “invited” or “called.” We can say with a surety that this “many” includes millions of Jews who as a nation had the promise of Exodus […]
Matthew 22:11-13 – King’s Inspection and Marriage Garments MT22:11 “Now when the king arrived to view those reclining at the festival table he saw there a person without a wedding garment. MT22:12 The king said to this person, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ But, the person could not answer. […]
Matthew 22:7-10 – Invitations after City’s Destruction || Luke 14:23, 24 MT22:7 “Now the king became extremely angry. He sent off his armies and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.

Matthew 21:45-46 – Religious Leadership Fearful || Mark 12:12; Luke 20:19 MT21:45 Having heard these parables the chief priests and the Pharisees realized Jesus was talking about them.

In the time of Paul, Corinth was a busy Roman trading city on the narrow strip of land between the Ionian Sea and the Aegian Sea.
During his eighteen months in Corinth (in 51-52 C.E.), Paul Had got a fair impression of the attitude of the Corinthians.
After the fall of Jerusalem Emperor Titus returned to Rome and received a triumphant welcome. At the same time, the Romans began to restore order in Judaea by putting down any final resistance and regaining control of the last few strongholds held by Zealots. The last and longest of these final encounters was the Siege […]
La paix de Dieu, qui surpasse toute pensée, gardera vos cœurs (Phil. 4:7). Priez, et vous recevrez la paix de Dieu qui « surpasse toute pensée ». Que signifie cette expression ? D’autres traducteurs de la Bible écrivent ici : « dépasse tout ce que l’on peut imaginer » (Bible en français courant), ou : « dépasse tout ce que l’on peut comprendre » […]
The peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts.—Phil. 4:7. Pray, and then you will receive the peace of God. But notice that “the peace of God . . . surpasses all understanding.” What does that mean? Some translators render this expression “surpasses all our dreams” or “excels all human planning.” Paul was, in […]
De vrede van God, die alle begrip te boven gaat, zal je hart beschermen. — Fil. 4:7. Bid, en je zult de vrede van God krijgen. Maar merk op dat Paulus zegt dat de vrede van God ‘alle gedachte te boven gaat’. Wat betekent dat? Sommige vertalers geven deze uitspraak weer met ‘die al onze dromen […]
To build up a good relation with the Divine Creator, the Divine Master Maker Himself provided several people who should be an example for mankind to come closer to God. Because of the rebellion against their Maker, the first human beings where cast out of the Garden of Eden, but had their offspring also with […]
In this world we see lots of religious groups and can find lots of people they believe in god/God. But we can wonder in which god or God they believe. The majority seems to believe in an other god than the God of the Bible. That god of the Holy Books is a Singular Spirit […]
When we are looking for some one for having a good or close relationship with, we can assure you the best one to have a good relationship with is the Most High Divine Creator God Who made it possible for you to be here in the first place. Having a relationship with Him is a […]
When wondered about a godhead and having come to the conclusion that there must be a Divine Creator or Supreme Being that surpasses all human and animal beings, we may question if it is possible for us to have a relationship with that Higher Being. What does it take to begin a relationship with God? […]
In March 2016 we created on Weebly a website to talk about man’s relationship with God. After we had done all the placing of pages and came to the contact form and placing of a Gravatar for the replies, we were brought to WordPress where we not only could choose a Gravatar but also got […]
Today, Wednesday, the 20th day of the Jewish month of Menachem Av (August 21), marks 75 years since the untimely passing of Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, of righteous memory, father of the Rebbe, of righteous memory. Rabbi , was respected as one of the greatest Talmudic and Kabbalistic scholars of his generation. He served as […]
Know that which is above you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book — Ethics of the Fathers 2:1
The Hebrew phrase tikkun olam (pronounced tee-KOON oh-LUHM) means “world repair.” In modern Jewish circles, tikkun olam has become synonymous with the notion of social action and the pursuit of social justice.
Created in the image of God each human being is requested to come close to the Bo’re and to be a partaker of a marvellous peaceful world to which each member has to contribute out of free will. In order for the balance between good and evil intended by God to be restored, humans must be involved in the world’s reparation and can not keep aside or aloof or ‘do nothing’ to get social justice or a better world.

When positively reacting to the wedding invitation, we should be willing to step in the sent one from God his footsteps and should help to spread the Good News
Even though we have a standing invitation to eat at “the table of Jehovah,” we must never take that invitation for granted. (1 Cor. 10:21)
We should look at the Most High Elohim, how He had chosen Himself a set-apart (or holy) people. Also in the parable of the Wedding banquet, mentioned in Matthew 22, we hear how He as the king invited His people. Because many did no go into His invitation He sent out His servants to invite […]
From the Hebrew Scriptures, including the Talmud we can learn that the Chosen People or Israel is eternal, so the bond with them is irreversible, unbreakable and eternal, once a Jew always a Jew. As a Jew following the Jewish rebbe Jeshua should not mean that one has to give up the Jewishness, even better being a follower of the sent one of God one can become even closer to God.
Men kan iets denken en iets uitspreken wat verwezenlijkt wordt door wat men noemt “het Woord” of “Logos”. Naast dat Woord of Logos (het spreken of uitspraak) is er ook het Rhéma of wat wordt gesproken, een uiting in een toespraak of geschrift (= vorm van het gesprokene).
Joden indien zij hun oude Geschriften diepgaand onderzoeken kunnen tot de ontdekking komen wie de lang beloofde Messiach is en kunnen daarbij ook voldoende redenen vinden om die Messias of Christus te volgen en deelgenoten te worden van ‘zijn lichaam’ en alzo als Jood voor Christus door het leven te gaan.
In het Joodse geloof zijn er de apart geplaatste boeken maar ook legendes welke vertellen over de man Abraham welke wij als onze aartsvader aanschouwen, omdat de elohim hem heeft uitverkoren om de vader van velen te zijn.
De Bijbelse naam Abraham betekent ‘verheven vader’. Dit was de Chaldese naam van Abraham. Toen Abram door God werd gekozen om de stamvader te worden van Gods volk, werd hij Abraham genoemd, wat ‘vader van vele volken’ betekent.
Adam mag dan wel de eerste man zijn die de wereld kent, maar voor ons geloof is de nomade wiens naam van Abram naar Abraham verandert is door God veel belangrijker.
In voorgaand en volgend bericht gaan wij dieper op die Bijbelse figuur in.
In ons geloof kijken wij gerust ook naar het begin aller tijden maar betreft ons geloof nemen wij anderen dan Adam en Eva als onze grote voorouders. Hij die voor ons de eer krijgt om onze aartsvader te zijn is Abraham.
The intention of this site was to be able to find answers to some serious questions and to know what others thought about it. But there were no answers from others and silence continued to form the fog.
Bedoeling van deze site was op enkele ernstige vragen antwoorden te kunnen vinden en te weten hoe anderen er over dachten. Maar antwoorden van anderen bleven uit en stilte bleef de mist vormen.
In this world we shall become even more confronted by people, be them politicians or church-leaders who would love to tell us than matters or different than we see it. Many of them will give the lie to make sure they would be more popular and receive more power. We must know that we shall […]
For most people life is just a big question-mark. Living this small life, earn and die is just not satisfying for them and it does not seems like the purpose of life.
In the capitalist countries money often receives the first place of importance and many forget that love for each other is so much more a valuable asset for having a better life.
Several churches want to be popular and promise their followers excellent health with a lot of wealth, as long as they contribute richly to the church.
Abundance is on the inside. It’s a feeling first, an amount second.
The Bible gives us a picture of the Only One True God His specific qualities and how He shows His faithfulness and His willingness to judge them righteous.
Previously we looked at the exclusivity of the Most High Supreme Spirit Being Who is the Singular Jehovah God. In this article we continue to look at Him Who si one (and not two or three) and notice some special features that make This Unique God so special.
Some verses from the Bible to get to know the God of gods Who is an exclusive eternal Supreme Being Who is one (and not two or three) no man can see, and Who has a special or set apart (holy) Name, Jehovah.
An overview of what we should know about the Most High God.
Often a lot of people do not know to differentiate between Christendom, Christianity, religiosity and even limit religiousness to Christians, forgetting that there are many other religious groups who have all sorts of worship.
