When we read the Acts of the apostles chapter 11 we find how the first followers of Christ Jesus went on to step in the footsteps of their master. “Now the apostles and the brothers who were throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God” (verse 1). For them it […]
Niets is eindig… maar een overgang! ‘Wanneer gij door het water trekt, ben Ik met u, gaat gij door rivieren, zij zullen u niet wegspoelen, als gij door het vuur gaat, zult gij niet verteren en zal de vlam u niet verbranden. Want Ik, de Here, ben uw God, de Heilige Israëls, uw Verlosser, Ik […]
The disciplinary thinker systematizes and delivers received wisdom using institutionally sanctioned techniques. The critical free thinker asks incisive questions that identify the material shortcomings and paradoxes of received wisdom when it’s put into practice. The two constitute a single movement in thinking among a community. A disciplinary approach to understanding the world becomes mainstream and […]

Op“Biblespace- Uw Bijbelstudie – Uw Redding” wordt er helemaal geen plaats gelaten om over te gaan tot ernstige Bijbelstudie, doordat enkel stellingen geponeerd worden waarbij lezers niet kunnen op reageren.

In Genesis 28:3 komen wij het woord lhq qahal tegen dat de Naardense Bijbel vertaald als een “vergadering van volkeren”. “God de Almachtige zal je zegenen, hij zal je vruchtbaar en talrijk maken; worden zul je tot een vergadering van volkeren!(-)” (Genesis 28:3 NB) “God, de Ontzagwekkende, moge je zegenen, je vruchtbaar maken en je […]
Door de aanhoudende berichten van Islamitische terreuraanvallen zijn in West Europa steeds minder mensen geïnteresseerd om nog de Palestijnse zaak te steunen. Sommigen gaan zelfs zo ver om nog meer achter de daden van de extreem rechtse bewegingen te staan. De constante dreiging die mensen aanvoelen door de negatieve berichtgeving over islamitische groeperingen, neemt meer […]

Fearing God is an important concept in the OT. While “fear” can describe terror or dread (Gen 3:10), the OT use of “fear” often indicates awe or reverence. To fear God is to express loyalty to Him and faithfulness to His covenant. Those who fear God exhibit trust in Him and obedience to His commandments. […]
God’s purpose is worked out in ways beyond the intention or comprehension of many … On August 1, 1917, the Chief of the Imperial General Staff, Sir William Robertson, declared that Mesopotamia was not a side-show, “because as long as we keep up a good show there India and Persia will be more or less […]
Addendum: omgaan met risico’s Ik wil dit hoofdstuk niet afsluiten zonder nog in te gaan op de argumenten van sommigen die menen dat de Bijbel het toepassen van preventieve geneeskunde verbiedt. Hiervoor wordt soms het vers geciteerd waar Jezus zegt: “Zij, die gezond zijn, hebben geen geneesheer nodig, maar zij, die ziek zijn” (Matt. […]
De voorschriften van het apostelconcilie Wanneer er in de eerste gemeente onenigheid ontstaat over de vraag in hoeverre christenen verplicht zijn de Wet te houden, roepen de apostelen een soort concilie bijeen te Jeruzalem om de zaak te bespreken. Wij vinden het verslag hiervan in Hand. 15. De uitkomst is dat niet-Joden zich niet […]
De ware sabbat In de vorige artikel hebben wij gezien dat de sabbat als een teken van het Verbond tussen God en zijn volk kan aanzien worden, geldend voor Israël en zijn nageslacht. Ook zagen wij hoe de verandering van sabbat naar zondag (eigenlijk de de eerste dag der week) niet bijbels is maar teruggaat op […]
De sabbatdag Tot zover is er dus geen probleem. Maar er is niettemin toch een probleem met het zogenaamde sabbatgebod, dat veel christenen aan de ene kant dwingend achten, maar dat zij niettemin hebben overgedragen op een andere dag in de week. Daar is dus kennelijk iets merkwaardigs mee aan de hand. We zullen […]
De tien geboden De meeste christenen zijn er wel van doordrongen dat zij niet meer ‘onder de wet’ zijn, maar maken een uitzondering voor de tien geboden, die zij een wet van alle tijden achten. In zijn algemeenheid is dat misschien nog niet eens zo slecht gezien, maar er vallen wel enige kanttekeningen bij […]
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 […]
Do you know where in the Bible we find God‘s first promise to send the Messiah? The answer is foundational to our faith because within this first Messianic Prophecy mentioned in the Bible lies our fate of eternal separation from God. Too many christians limit the Bible to the second main part, the Messianic Writings, […]
The Divine Creator of heaven and earth wished not to leave the ones sent out of the Garden of Eden on their own. Though Adam and Eve rebelled against God, Him having expelled them, the Elohim was willing to stay close to them and to help there where He could or where it was appropriate […]
Those people coming from the first man and woman in a certain way got infected by the wrong choice these people made. God gave a free will to the human beings He created. He did not want them to go wrong or to have it bad, but because they objected to His ruling or His […]

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) believes that we are in the “end times harvest” and as you could read in the previous articles, that dominionist movement asserts that God is restoring the lost offices of church governance, namely the offices of Prophet and Apostle, having present day apostles who support a new period and the […]

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? […]

Throughout history of mankind there have many groups of people who worshipped a triple deity (sometimes referred to as threefold, tripled, triplicate, tripartite, triune or triadic, or as a trinity). Those people who worshipped such tri-une god all claim they only worship one deity. Such deities that are worshipped as one are common throughout world mythology; the number three has a long history of mythical associations. Carl Jung considered the arrangement of deities into triplets an archetype in the history of religion. But the God of the Bible is clear about Which God has to be worshipped, not a more headed, be it an eightfold, three-une or bi-one god, but only the God of Abraham, Which is only One God of gods.

A man and a woman created for each other, accountable to their Creator, in whose image they are made creative beings.

The centuries-old five-pointed geometric figure is most known as a symbol of the Jewish community. In this article we will outline the interpretation as well as the possible point of view for us today.
After the wrong choice and action of the first human beings the elohim had no other choice than to bring over man the curse He had warned them for. But out of love for His creatures He also provided straight away a solution against the curse of death and gave man a second chance.
In the second and third chapter of the Bereshith (the book of the beginning) we find that God, Who had made man in His image, brought a helper for the ish or man so that they could live together in a bond of union, related to the other living beings and to the Most High Elohim, in a state we now call marriage.
In ancient times people couldn’t just open the Torah and find particular chapters or verses in the Bible. In the past, but also still know, people just quoted it and hoped that their listeners knew its origin. They might have told them which book of the Bible you were talking about, but that was as much as they could do.
Daniel Bomberg, a Flemish Christian printer printed a complete edition of the Babylonian Talmud and used the layout that is now familiar.
Today people may think Judaism provides no atonement for sins, though the Most High has sent a man who offered himself as a Lamb for God and by giving his life for others he paid the ransom for salvation.
The only thing is people have to come to accept him and to believe in this mediator between God and man.
Konrad Lorenz, Raymond Dart, Desmond Morris, Niko Tinbergen, Robert Ardrey, among many others, argue that humans descended from killer apes and still retained deep in their genes and instincts a propensity for war and violence. Some insist that rather than genetic origins, human belligerence is the result of traditions and customs evolved over millennia as a result of the need to compete for territory, mates, food and power. Whether genetic, instinctual or historical, humans are a warlike species. Book titles such as On Aggression, The Naked Ape, African Genesis, The Territorial Imperative, The Social Contract (Ardrey, 1970), and The Hunting Hypothesis illustrate their argument.

October 31, 1517 is seen by many as the beginning of the Protestant Reform. Martin Luther in any case succeeded in opening the way for the ordinary people to read the Bible in their own language and to discover which unbiblical doctrines the Roman Catholic Church tried to pinpoint people.
The devote Jew Saul came to know the importance of the names of the rebbe Jeshua and his God and took care that those names became known all over the world. Up to today there are people who want those names to be know all over the world. Jeshuaists proclaim the Good News brought by Jeshua the Messiah who every body should come to know as the Way to God.
31 oktober 1517 wordt voor velen als de aanvang van de Protestantse Hervorming aanschouwd. Martin Luther slaagde er in ieder geval in om de weg te openen voor het gewone volk om de bijbel in hun eigen taal te kunnen lezen en zelf te ontdekken welke on-Bijbelse leerstellingen de Rooms Katholieke Kerk de mensen trachtte op te spelden.
De toegewijde Jood Saul werd bekend om het belang van de namen van de rebbe Jeshua en zijn God te verspreiden. Hij en de volgelingen van de apostelen zorgde ervoor dat die namen over de hele wereld bekend werden. Tot vandaag zijn er mensen die willen dat die namen over de hele wereld bekend geraken. Jeshuaisten verkondigen het goede nieuws, geboden door Jeshua, de Messias, die elke persoon als de Weg naar God zou moeten herkennen.
Jeshua-ists hun eerste regel is het volgen van de belangrijkste mitzvah die de Allerhoogste Elohim aan de wereld heeft gegeven en welke Jeshua zijn volgelingen gevraagd heeft om in hun hart op te nemen en er aan te houden “Boven alles de Enige Ware God te aanbidden”.
Jeshua-ist their first rule is following the most important mitzvah that the Most High elohim has given to the world and which Jeshua asked his followers to take at heart.
De term Messiasbelijdende Joden is in dagelijks spraakgebruik onder West-Europese christenen redelijk gemeengoed, maar stuit op enige controverse. Allereerst omdat de Messiasbelijdende Joden niet in alle gevallen Joden zijn, qua afkomst noch via bekering. Verder beschouwt het jodendom hen als een christelijke sekte. Religieus gezien heeft het jodendom volgens sommigen dan ook geen aanknopingspunt met deze religieuze groepering. Vrijwel alle Joden beschouwen deze godsdienstige groepering dan ook als een onderdeel van het christendom, waartoe de grootste kerk van de Messiasbelijdende Joden (Jews for Jesus of Joden voor Jezus) ook officieel behoort.
Voor ware Messiaanse Joden komt er op aan naar de buitenwereld duidelijk te maken dat men niet behoort tot christenen die de Drie-eenheid aanhouden maar dat men zich houdt aan van Godswege die de Weg naar God is en redding voorziet.
Verder moet men zich afvragen in welke mate men aan welke uiterlijke tekenen moet houden en tot welke dagen of feesten die door God zijn ingesteld men zich moet houden.
We looked if there was a Higher Being Which made everything or let everything come into being. When we came to see that there was A Voice in the darkness that sounded we may wonder where that Voice came from. From texts or Words given by that same Voice that sounded in the void, we […]
Lots of people, in particular English speaking people, do forget that in several languages “Allah” is the word being used for The God as well as for other gods or a god.

Veel mensen, met name de Engels sprekenden, vergeten dat er in verschillende talen “Allah” als woord gebruikt wordt voor Dé God, alsook voor andere goden of een god aan te duiden.
