I Would like to make you aware of one of my other sites where I expose a view of world affairs.
Since the Covid outbreak, China has done everything possible to limit the damage to the population, but their draconian measures are quietly starting to turn against the government’s policies.
After Russian troops left Kherson Ukrainian forces entered the city and were welcomed as liberators. Days after Russia’s damaging withdrawal from Kherson Kyiv and other cities are targeted, and Russia lets the Ukrainians feel that they will not give up until Ukraine is all theirs.
Leaders from poor countries have good reason to criticise wealthy governments and oil companies for driving global warming, and demand that those polluting countries shall pay repairments fees to the suffering poor countries.
World Ballet Day is a moment when several companies all over the world open the studio doors to share the intimate work the professional dancers exert on a daily basis.
A young conservative minister may take the helm of a country in chaos.
After the Covid pandemic, which is actually not quite over yet, Europe has much worse cats to flog. With what is going on in the North of Europe, no wonder a lot of time is recently spent on that very delicate situation, which could bring the world in a horrible position. For this reason, all […]

By Chris Evans, EDITOR Dear Reader, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s much-anticipated new documentary series has premiered on Netflix today, laying bare the couple’s grievances about the Royal family. Our correspondents have compiled all of the swipes and revelations from the first three episodes. With the death of George Leonard “Johnny” Johnson aged 101 […]
Nieuwe peilingen laten duidelijk zien hoe in België het rechtse veld sterk vooruit gaat en centrumpartijen alsmaar meer de voorkeur van de kiezers lijken te verliezen.
Understanding why supermarkets are set up the way they are enables us to avoid falling for the trickery quite so easily.
Comparing Meghan with Diana angers palace aides Equating the treatment of the Duchess of Sussex and Diana, Princess of Wales is “disgusting” and “outrageous”, former palace aides have said, as a Netflix documentary laying bare the Sussexes’ grievances airs today. Harry and Meghan, whose six-part series begins this morning, have already released a trailer – […]

Event Turkey has broken Nato unity on Finland and Sweden’s push to join the alliance, blocking an initial vote on accession after President Erdogan demanded that the two countries hand over dozens of Turkish exiles he accused of “terrorism”. The veto came hours after Jens Stoltenberg, the Nato secretary-general, hailed a historic moment for western […]
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 […]

“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 […]
In today’s second Bible reading we get the impression that God’s people looked on His laws as burdensome and felt that serving Him was difficult. The Elohim therefore asks them: “ O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.” (Mic 6:3 ASV) The God of […]
One of the most uplifting chapters in God’s word is surely Hebrews 11. It provides the evidence of what real belief in God causes us to do (or not do); the factor that should be the spiritual mainspring of our lives. The danger is, we might become too familiar with the lessons in this chapter […]
How much patience do people have today? In most cases, very little, at least that is so in this country. Life is lived in a constant “hurry’ – you can perceive a sense of urgency in many – this life is all I have, let me enjoy it as much as possible as the future […]
In the Messianic Scriptures we learn that the Divine Creator fathered His only begotten beloved son who in the days of his flesh here on earth, was a humble man who knew who is the Most Highest and What His Plan and Will are. God looked down from above unto that man who put his […]
In this world we encounter lots of people who say they are a Christian. But when we look at their behaviour we could wonder if they could be worthy to call themselves Christian. We may encounter lots of Christians who call other names or who say others shall burn in hell for ever. They love […]

The longest public speeches of Jesus that we have on record have nicknames: The “Sermon on the Mount” and the “Sermon on the Plain” e.g.. Jesus thought carefully about what and how he would show people the Father, how to be the vehicle by which people were drawn to Him.
Jezus vroeg zijn tijdgenoten: ‘Hebt u niet gelezen’ en ‘Staat er niet geschreven?’ Zo maakte Hij duidelijk dat het geschreven woord van God boven alles staat, en dat het belangrijk is onderscheid te maken tussen wat God heeft gesproken en de menselijke opvattingen daarover. “Laten wij dan niet langer elkander oordelen, maar komt liever tot […]
Heiligheid behoort Jehovah toe Op de tulband van de hogepriester in Israël stond: “Heiligheid behoort Jehovah toe”. Onder het Hebreeuwse woorden qoʹdhesj en kedoesja of ‘heiligheid’ verstond men oorspronkelijk een toestand van afgezonderdheid, een exclusiviteit die reden gaf om apart geplaatst te worden. Heilige zaken waren die dingen die exclusief of geheiligd zijn voor God, […]
God, de Heer zal koning worden Dat de aanvallende vijanden van Israël gedecimeerd zullen worden, blijkt uit de woorden: “Allen, die zijn overgebleven van al de volken, die tegen Jeruzalem zijn opgerukt, zullen van jaar tot jaar heentrekken om zich neer te buigen voor de Koning, Jehovah de Heer van de heerscharen” (Zach. 14:16). In […]
De vijanden verdelgd Gods oordeel op de volkenlegers die Zijn land zijn binnengevallen en Zijn verbondsvolk hebben aangevallen, markeert het begin van de overgang van de koninkrijken van deze wereld tot het wereldomvattende Koninkrijk van Christus Jezus. Haggaï had de opdracht gekregen een zeer gewichtige boodschap aan Zerubbabel, stadhouder van de provincie Jehud en vertegenwoordiger […]
Uit de woestijnen liet God een berg rijzen die Hij voorzag van stromen water, om als een vesting voor Zijn Volk te zijn en waaruit zijn gezondene het levend water zal komen te zijn.
Het is op de door God ontstane berg dat Jehovah Zijn stad en tempel laat opbouwen en voor een veilige haven zorgt van waaruit de waarheid kan verspreid worden.
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 […]
Review Questions on Chapter One How does Luke introduce his Gospel? Who received an angelic visitation in the Temple? Why was Zechariah struck dumb? Why was Elizabeth’s pregnancy unusual? What did the angel say to Mary? What happened when Mary visited Elizabeth? How does Mary magnify God? What is the name of Elizabeth’s child? What […]
Luke 1:67-80 – Zechariah’s Prophecy LK1:67 Then the baby’s father Zechariah was filled with holy Pneuma and prophesied: “Blessed [be] YHWH, The God of Israel, [Psalm 41:13] LK1:68 for He visited and redeemed His People. [Psalm 111:9] LK1:69 He raised up for us a horn of salvation in His servant David’s House. [Psalm 132:17] LK1:70 […]
Luke 1:57-66 – Elizabeth Gives Birth To John LK1:57 Now Elizabeth’s time came to fulfillment for her to give birth, and so she bore a son. LK1:58 Now her neighbors and relatives heard that YHWH had shown His mercy to her and they rejoiced together with her. LK1:59 Then the time arrived on the eighth […]
Luke 1:46-56 – Mary Magnifies God LK1:46 Now Mary responded: LK1:47 “My soul magnifies the LORD! [1 Samuel 2:1] My inner being rejoices in my God, the Savior! [1 Samuel 2:1] LK1:48 For He has seen the humble condition of his servant-girl. Behold, from now on all generations will consider me most blessed. LK1:49 Because […]
Luke 1:39-45 – Mary Visits Elizabeth LK1:39 Now in those days Mary rose and traveled hastily into the hill country to a village of Judah. LK1:40 She entered into the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. LK1:41 Now the moment Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting her baby suddenly moved in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled […]
Decimated by war, revolution, and famine, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Russia had to face the Bolsheviks and their decrees and how the relative freedom that the Lutheran Church had experienced became curtailed by the dictates of the Soviet state.

As you could notice in the previous postings, can we say that literature has been the home of Jewish artistic activity throughout the ages. We must also remember that Hebrew literature is not synonymous with Jewish literature. For those who study the Bible, the Hebrew language is an important semitic language of the Northern Central […]
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.
As we gain new experiences and learn every day so does the confrontation of reading the Torah every year again from beginning to end, which makes us discover each time some new things, making us grow in our Bible knowledge.
A last day of Sukkot, a seven-day festival ending with an eight day. Finishing and beginning again of Torah reading
Going up to Simchat Torah, the Rejoicing of the Torah, remembering how everything we have is a gift from Hashem, Who has given His Word to guide us through our life.
We look at the observance of Three Weeks,(Hebrew Bein Hametzarim,- Between the Straits) which commemorates the days between the first breaching of the walls of Jerusalem in 586 bce by Babylonian troops under Nebuchadrezzar to the subsequent destruction of the First Temple of Jerusalem.

As a small faith community, getting new young members is not easy. We all must do an effort to bring in the younger generation and to get them enthusiastically to share their knowledge and gifts with the older generations.
Simchat Torah is a component of the Biblical Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret (“Eighth Day of Assembly”), which follows immediately after the festival of Sukkot in the month of Tishrei (mid-September to early October on the Gregorian calendar).

Wij hebben een prachtige zomer, met enkele hitte golven, gehad en hebben deze nu afgesloten om zo weer over te gaan naar het begin van een cyclus. De oogst is binnen gehaald en wij hebben de Hashem bedankt voor al de goede dingen die Hij voor ons heeft voorzien. De vorige jaren zijn wij met […]
Tot op de dag van vandaag zien wij dat het postkolonialisme en het neokolonialisme de verhoudingen en ideologieën van het kolonialisme voortgezet of verlegd hebben, waarbij zij de voortzetting ervan rechtvaardigen met concepten als ontwikkeling en nieuwe grenzen, zoals bij de verkenning van de kosmische ruimte met het oog op kolonisatie.
Bij de Parasja Nitsawiem 5782 kijken wij uit naar een sjana tova oemetoeka voor ons allen.

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.
The apostle Paul wrote about the dispersion, the dispersed House of Israel. They had been “without covenant“, but Paul was sent out to recover them. So they were “grafted in again“ (Romans 11/23). Or, Grafted back in“. If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been […]
Rob Mac wonders when the door to door will return? He wrote this a while back, and went sharing it again. Many Jehovah’s Witnesses hate the door to door ministry, although they won’t readily admit it. Many Jehovah’s Witnesses have developed ‘creative’ ways of counting their time doing this work, and many strategies for avoiding actually […]
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 […]
God heeft de wereld van Zijn woord en Zijn profeten voorzien, maar niet altijd wensten de mensen van die leiders of profeten weten, waardoor er verscheidene groeperingen ontstonden die elk dachten of denken de juiste aanbiddingswijze te hebben.
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,
