The Times, May 2, 2022 Event Ukraine, one of the most fertile and productive countries in the world, has been known historically as the “bread basket of Europe”. Now it is facing a complex and unprecedented agricultural crisis, in which landmines are only one of numerous interlinked problems. The United Nations estimates this year’s harvest […]
BBC, April 22 + Audit of antisemitic incidents Event The number of anti-Semitic incidents around the world dramatically increased last year, a study by Tel Aviv University has found. The report identifies the US, Canada, the UK, Germany and Australia as among countries where there was a sharp rise. This was fueled by radical left- […]
The Times, April 16 Russia’s setbacks could prompt President Putin to use tactical nuclear weapons, William Burns, the CIA director, has said. Moscow has a stockpile of about 2,000 tactical nuclear weapons, also known as low-yield or battlefield munitions, that can be deployed by air, sea or artillery. These are generally less potent than the […]
Event: The United Nations general assembly has voted to suspend Russia from the human rights council after images of atrocities apparently showing civilians left dead in the streets with their hands bound emerged following Russian troops’ withdrawal from around Kyiv. The call for Russia’s removal from the UN’s top human rights body was led by […]

To those now deep into biblical scripture you are probably aware of the difference between reading the bible and meditating on the world. Naturally, like many young Christians, I had assumed that once you read the bible, and you knew God’s words and it was enough. But I kept hearing…

“The Bible is indeed the greatest book ever written. It has shaped the cultures of the world in countless ways, and it contains the words of everlasting life. But for so many today, it is largely opaque, indecipherable – at best a puzzling text from a prescientific age.” Bishop Robert Barron, The Word on […]
We admit that the Bible is not easy for everyone to follow. But usually, this is because the person does not believe in himself enough and is too much weighed down by entrenched human doctrines or dogmas that obscure the Biblical text.
The inability of Christians to grasp the meaning and message of both Genesis and Revelation create a great divide in America. Christians struggle with both the beginning and culmination of the Scriptures — the Alpha and the Omega as they might be called. Both Genesis and Revelation bring a lot of baggage with them to […]
Turkey has positioned itself with great care to be the go-between with Russia and Ukraine – and this seems to be paying off. On Thursday afternoon, President Vladimir Putin rang the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and told him what Russia’s precise demands were for a peace deal with Ukraine. The Russian demands fall into […]
I was very surprised to read that one of my teachers thought: “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I died tonight?”‘ But soon I came to see and understand it was in the positive sense, a thought of some years ago, Dame Monica Mason, recalling her role as the Chosen Maiden in Kenneth MacMillan’s The Rite […]
The Republican Party under Trump had really a problem with promoting several right wing groups. On MSNBC Saturday April 30, Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison gave to know that the Republican Party is a “hot mess” built on “fear” and “fraud”. Harrison’s comments came during a discussion with MSNBC host Tiffany Cross, who asked […]

Zij die werkzaam zijn in de culturele sector behoren al eeuwen tot de minst beschermde mensen. Toen ik in de sector begon te werken was er zelfs geen pensioenvoorziening en moesten wij daar zelf voor instaan. Dit deden velen van ons dan ook door goed te sparen, levensverzekeringen aan te gaan, kasbons en aandelen te […]
De Standaard bracht heel slecht nieuws uit voor de CD&V, de Christen Democratische Volkspartij, die klaarblijkelijk de interesse van het volk verloren heeft. Vroeger was de CVP de grootste politieke partij in België. Voor jaren kon die Christelijke Volkspartij rekenen op vaste kiezers, die alsmaar ouder werden en vervolgens ook stierven, zodat het aantal stemmers […]

Zelensky heeft toch een vreemde uitspraak gedaan om zijn land te vergelijken met een ‘groot Israël’. Of kijkt hij vooruit naar een profetische Bijbelse voorspelling? Dinsdag 5 april maakte de Oekraïense president Volodymyr Zelensky de meest expliciete identificatie van zijn bevochten land met de staat Israël, waarbij hij op de Israëlische staatstelevisie aangaf dat zelfs […]

It is possible that World War 3 is dated as beginning on February 24th 2022 – the day Russia invaded Ukraine.

As the Guardian’s new ‘climate bombs’ series shows, there are 195 gigantic oil and gas projects underway around the world that would each result in at least one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over their lifetimes, in total equivalent to around 18 years of current global emissions.

We always pray … that our God may make you worthy The first two chapters of Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians have some awesome thoughts.

Sergei Lavrov the Russian foreign minister has provoked outrage in Israel by asserting that Adolf Hitler had “Jewish origins” and that Jews were the worst antisemites. Israel has been operating as a mediator between Ukraine and Russia as it has ties with both sides.

The Telegraph, April 28, 2022 Event Vladimir Putin has warned the West that he will use nuclear weapons if any other country intervenes in his war in Ukraine. Speaking to politicians in St Petersburg, the Russian president said that “if anyone sets out to intervene in the current events from the outside and creates unacceptable threats for […]
The Times, May 2, 2022 Event Russian state television has issued a chilling warning that Moscow could wipe out Britain with a nuclear tsunami in retaliation for supporting Ukraine. In his Sunday evening primetime show, the Channel One anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said a strike by Russia’s Poseidon nuclear underwater drone could turn Britain into a […]

It’s natural to feel good on a lovely day, surrounded by beauty, and to feel not-so-good on a dreary day. Which ought to make us pause, because what comes “naturally” generally comes from the flesh and we should consider it suspect. The seasons change, everything in creation changes with them. But the Creator who originated […]
Event U.S. President Joe Biden said for the first time on Tuesday that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine amounts to genocide, a significant escalation of the president’s rhetoric. Biden used the term genocide in a speech at an ethanol plant in Iowa and later stood by the description as he prepared to board Air Force One. […]
In de lezingen van gisteren en eergisteren konden we zien hoe de apostelen zichzelf in de problemen brachten door over Jezus te spreken en wonderen te doen in de naam van God. In de lezing van gisteren (Handelingen 6) lezen we hoe de religieuze leiders valse getuigen opriepen om de volgelingen van Christus te kunnen […]
God verblijft in de hemel maar is ook overal op de wereld, maar niet verdoken in kerken geplaatste tabernakels.
Sommigen nemen aan dat Gods Koninkrijk geen wereldomvattend Vrederijk is maar eerder een geestelijke toestand in het hart van de vromen zou zijn. Voor hetzelfde woord vindt men zowel de vertaling “koninkrijk” als “koningschap” waarbij het Koninkrijk door zijn omvangrijkheid overal te merken zal zijn en terugslaat op het Vrederijk van Christus Jezus.
Uit de spreukachtige gezegden die Jezus gebruikt tijdens zijn bergrede blijkt hoe de ene uitspraak slechts één kant van een zaak belicht terwijl een andere betrekking heeft op een ander aspect hiervan.
In Jezus tijd was mondelinge overlevering heel belangrijk. Daarom gebruikte Jezus als leerkracht spreekvormen die het makkelijker maakten om het gezegde te onthouden, zoals bijvoorbeeld een spreukachtige taal.
Met meesterlijke verhalen weet de Nazarener leermeester mensen te boeien.
Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
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 […]
In the country where before the invasion by the Russians lived about 50 million people, we can find people who have been exposed to a variety of religious beliefs. The Orthodox Church – 10th-21st Century In the tenth century, the Eastern Orthodox religion was introduced to become in 2018 the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. The […]
Tomorrow Friday, April the 15th of the year 2022 we remember what happened in the month Jehovah demanded it to be the first month of the year for the people of God. “1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 “This month is to be for you the first month, the first […]
Morgen vrijdag 15 april van het jaar 2022 gedenken wij wat er gebeurde in de maand waarvan Jehovah eiste dat het de eerste maand van het jaar zou zijn voor het volk van God. “1 En de Heer sprak tot Mozes en Aäron in Egypteland: 2 Deze maand zal bij u de eerste maand zijn, […]
For two years, our services could not continue physically. Fortunately, we had Zoom and Jitsi to reach our members via the internet. For months, Bible students have been prevented from going to the houses to bring the Good News. Like last year, no leaflets have been put in the mailboxes to invite people to the […]
Twee jaar zijn onze diensten niet lijfelijk kunnen door gaan. Gelukkig hadden wij Zoom en Jitsi om via het internet onze leden te bereiken.

The Copper Scroll. Found in a cave near the Dead Sea, the Copper Scroll describes a vast treasure—hidden in locations throughout the Judean wilderness. Some think the scroll served as a map to the treasure from the Jerusalem Temple.
Archives are always a treasure trove, but they often remain a closed Pandora’s box for interested parties. Due to COVID-19, the Badè Museum gallery in Berkeley, California, is closed until further notice. The virtual exhibition Unsilencing the Archives: The Laborers of the Tell en-Nasbeh Excavations (1926–1935) has been recently launched online by the Badè Museum […]
The European Union has come face to face with the harsh reality of Putin’s plans and must now prevent a third world war from becoming a harsher reality.
De Europese Unie is met haar neus op de harde realiteit van Poetins plannen gebotst en moet nu zien te vermijden dat een derde wereldoorlog een hardere realiteit wordt.
First of all to come to a good relationship with some one, one has to talk with that person and has to listen to what that person has to tell. God talks to the people by the way of His Word, presented to mankind by the many Bible translations, so that most people can read […]
The One Who created everything and Who gave His Word, did all He did with a purpose and out of love. The Bible teaches us that “God is love.” (1 John 4:8) Everything God does is motivated by love. Out of love created man in His image also with the intention to have a good relationship […]
In the previous writings we saw that the Divine Creator gave His Word to the world so that people could come to know Him. The Bible is a gift from God. It gives us information that we can’t find anywhere else. For example, it tells us that God created the heavens, the earth, and the […]
It is never too late to start the good habit of regularly reading the Bible, a Book of hope and comfort.
At the beginning of the new schoolyear there is a good reason from now on to invest each day in meeting with God.
The Anti-Semitism Worldwide Report 2021 and the Anti-Defamation League report about anti-Semitism show the rise of hate against Jews.
The British four-part television drama Ridley Road which premiered on BBC One on 3 October 2021 can now also be seen on PBS. The mini-series Ridley Road is set in the East End of London in the early 1960s and follows the story of a Jewish woman who infiltrates the ranks of the neo-Nazis, posing […]

In Corona time many people got time to think about which way to go with their faith. Now more people feel the need to go back to the shul after all the lockdowns.
Forbes, April 28, 2022 Event Quite a few billionaires born in Russia have taken advantage of the “Law of Return,” otherwise known as “Aliyah,” which grants automatic entry and passports to any Jew, or anyone who can prove they have at least one Jewish grandparent. According to Forbes’ research, more than 40% of the 111 Russian-born billionaires […]
The feeling that their own nation is sacred and should be protected against outside forces makes people choose right-wing politicians who promise them an ideal flourishing prosperous nation
Tel Aviv Univ. echoing recent ADL study on antisemitism in the US, find worldwide increase in Jew-hatred over the past year.
Iran controls the trouble in and around Israel. It literally activates and ferments violence when it wants to. Hamas & Hezbollah don’t do anything without their paymasters say so.
Israel has been forced to vote against Russia in recent weeks, which caused Russian anger. They are pointing to Israel’s own conflict. In other words – keep out of our war or your own war might begin.
Kijkend naar de geschiedenis van het Joodse Volk in Oekraïne staan zij nu weer op het punt dat er vele doden onder hen kunnen vallen.
Met Rosj Hasjana denken wij aan de wondere scheppingsdaad van de Allerhoogste. Spijtig genoeg moeten wij toegeven dat de mensheid van die schepping een janboel heeft gemaakt.
In these days of natural disasters that defy our regions, it is good to know that we have the Etz Chaim or Tree of Life within our reach.
Door de eeuwen heen zijn er steeds mensen geweest die inzagen hoe alles rondom hen mogelijk was en hoe er geloof kon gesteld worden in Die Maker van alle dingen en hoe ze Hem als het ware als een schild en toevluchtsoord konden gebruiken.
In en met hun geloof durfden zij te spreken over hun geloof en wat de wereld mocht verwachten in toekomende tijden.
Telkens als er een dag voor je ligt moet je deze nemen alsof het de laatste dag van je leven is. En daar moet je dan van genieten en sterk maken dat je Leeft!
Does one need proof to come to a certain belief? We can look at the signs in nature and find out what happened to certain people in the past, such as Noah and Paul. With the Book of Books, Allah has provided the world with His Interpretative Word.
Heeft men bewijzen nodig om tot een bepaald geloof te komen? Wij kunnen naar de tekenen in de natuur kijken en nagaan wat er in het verleden met bepaalde mensen, zoals Noach en Paulus is gebeurd. Met het Boek der boeken heeft Allah de wereld van Zijn Alzeggend Woord voorzien.
When we speak about “Faith” (iman) we look at acceptance of the Belief in the existence and oneness of God (Allah).and the existence of the Book of books of which God is the author, existing of five main parts, the Torah (revealed to Moses),,the Psalms (revealed to David).and the Writings of Kings and prophets as well as the Gospel (revealed to Jesus) with the writings of his apostles,
Wanneer wij over “Geloof” (iman) spreken, zien wij op de aanvaarding van het Geloof in het bestaan en de eenheid van God (Allah) en het bestaan van het Boek der boeken waarvan God de auteur is, bestaande uit vijf hoofdstukken, de Torah (geopenbaard aan Mozes), de Psalmen (geopenbaard aan David) en de Geschriften van Koningen en Profeten, alsmede het Evangelie (geopenbaard aan Jezus) met de geschriften van zijn apostelen,
One may wonder in which or what kind of god people want to believe. It is striking that many people like to have a certain form of mystery around their deity and therefore do not choose the God Who pours clear wine and sends very reliable Words to earth.
Constantine wanted unity in his realm, and his call in 325 C.E. for a council of his bishops at Nicaea, located in the Eastern, Greek-speaking domain of his empire, across the Bosporus from the new city of Constantinople was in a certain way his goal to achieve some agreement by which many could live. Constantine […]
Superstition, misunderstanding and hatred caused the Christians trouble for many generations, and governmental repression they had to suffer occasionally, as a result of popular disturbances. No systematic effort was made by the imperial authorities to put an end to the movement until the reign of the Roman emperor (249–251) who fought the Gothic invasion of […]
Self-enhancing When the apostles had died there came a time when those in charge of teaching and going around telling about the gospel, started coming to see themselves as special people. Some even started to consider themselves as ‘clergy of the highest order’. After a time the organisation of the church was given only to […]
A New Judaic movement The followers of Christ brought some new movement in action which spread quite naturally beyond the confines of Palestine. Their group found adherents among the Jews of the dispersion, and at an early day also among the Gentiles as well. Many of the latter had already come under the influence of […]
In the previous posting we saw already how the pupils of the disciples from the apostles searched in other classic writings to add some flavour to their teaching and to gain more popularity because some Greek philosophers were very popular. Certain members of the community found themselves too weak to present strong teachings and therefore […]
