All Scripture Has Its Point of Origin In God’s Mind

No matter to which denomination a person belongs, the bible should be their first and most important Guide, trusting it is the infallible Word of God and the Source for life given by the Most Almighty, showing us the Way to God, letting us know what went wrong with mankind and showing God’s Plan and His solution for this world.

The Bible should be are Daily Food, giving us the opportunity to restore the relationship between us and God.

Christianity 201

Today we’re looking at 2 Timothy 3:16
Today’s New International Version (TNIV)

All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for

  • teaching
  • rebuking
  • correcting…
  • training in righteousness

The Message

Every part of scripture is God-breathed and is useful one way or another —

  • showing us truth
  • exposing our rebellion
  • correcting our mistakes
  • training us to live God’s way

New Living Translation (NLT)

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to

  • teach us what is true…
  • make us realize what is wrong in our lives…
  • correct us when we are wrong…
  • teach us to do what is right

My very loose paraphrase

All scripture has its point of origin in God’s mind, and

  • shows us the path God would have us walk
  • highlights when and where we’ve gotten off the path
  • points the way back to the path
  • gives us the advice we need to keep from wandering off the…

What is a Christian?

Lots of people do call themselves Christian but are not really real followers of Christ (what they should be when they call themselves Christian).

Being Christian should entail that the person is a follower of the Christ (Kristos) and would follow his teachings and worship the same God as him. Though in the Christian world we do find the majority worshipping another god than the God of Christ. Christ Jesus, born by the Power of God, was brought up in a very devout family who kept to the Torah and worshipped the Only One True God, the God of Israel, Who is also the God of Abraham.

A true Christian should also keep to that Unseen God and like Jesus should obey His Wishes and Commandments. As a follower of Christ a Christian should make sure to live according the rule of the God of Christ and according the teachings of Jesus Christ. Though in many denominations we see lots of so called believers who not take notion of all those things Jesus and God require from believers in God and from lovers of God. Many keep to the false teaching of the trinity (a three-headed god) and even do not mind having graven images of those gods (a blasphemy and an abomination in the eyes of God)
Lots of those calling themselves Christian also do not share the love of Christ and often are racist and not showing their love for others. Many also do not mind taking up weapons or to show aggressiveness towards others.

A real Christian is some one who really tries to live according the teachings of God and His only begotten beloved son Jesus, and like him shows respect and love to every creation of God (plants, animals and people).

Don’t Be Discouraged

We must know that living in a godless world many burdens and suffering may be part of every person being part of this word-system. Though every one who has found God and has come to believe in His sent one, shall find consolation that we shall come closer to a time when the Most High shall bring a turn-over.

Though people of the earth have ruined it, because they do not follow God’s teachings or do not obey God’s laws. Those who kept to the agreement with God that was to last forever, shall soon hear songs from every part of the earth, praising God, the Righteous One. The Almighty God has always done what He said He would do and has done what He planned long ago, and as such we may trust Him Who not only renews us but shall renew the whole earth, stopping the violent attacks on us, as a cloud cools a hot day, Jehovah shall silence the songs of those who have no mercy.

In Him we may have hope and shall come to see that He will wipe away every tear from every face. He will take away the shame of His people from the earth. (Isaiah 24-25)

Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.  Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary.  Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by his love and grace.

High recognitions . . . Diseases can be blessings, leading to the true recognition of God.

Often the worst moments in our life are able to bring in the purest ‘Light of life’.

Purplerays

33116191_2047846822150081_6144381798500532224_o

“The timely inner transformation of a person is invariably what determines how
karmic diseases – or actually any ailment – will emerge. Diseases can be
blessings, leading to the true recognition of God. Time and again it is only
suffering that leads people to think about life and death, thus recognizing
their own insignificance! A warning and a call for action vibrate in every
disease and suffering. They are messengers of Love looking to save and cure!”

– Roselis von Sass
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

O God, How Long? ~ Psalm 74

In this godless world there are also people who think they think they can ask their god or gods for things to happen. There are also people who call themselves ‘Christian‘ and wonder why God does not answer their prayers, though they do not see they have not taken them the right God of gods but pray to a man made god, a god son, and to people they call saints. Though the Elohim Hashem Jehovah is very clear that we should only have and worship the One True God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Jesus and his disciples, Who is an eternal Spirit God and not a fleshy god.

If you feel as though God is not watching or that He does not care you are perhaps better to search your heart, to see if you are really worshipping the right god, and not for example Jesus or any other human being or idols.

Today we can find lots of people who make a mockery of the God of Israel, also not willing to see the Biblical Truth. They most often see the false teachings of human ‘spiritual’ leaders or theologians, be it from Islamic or Christian groups, who destroy everything on their path, leaving nothing but pain and misery in their wake.

More people should follow Asaph his example, coming to look up at the real Only One True God, Jehovah the Elohim Hashem Divine Creator, and to cry out to that God of the universe, the Maker of heaven and earth, summer and winter. We all should know that it is That eternal God Who is prepared to be our rock and refuge, to defend Himself and those who really love Him and worship Him alone, that no matter what the enemy would love to do. They shall always come to know that This One True God is always the Most Mightiest god of all.

– Note: a pity the guest-writer of today, who calls herself a Born-again believer in Christ, wife, mother, teacher, artist, poet, blogger, pianist, singer, telling us she has praised God with her music ever since 1980, makes a strange twist at the end of the article, writing

“Then boldly make your requests known to Him, praising His name and trusting Him for the answer in His time.”

as if she thinks Jesus is God, and as such is forgetting that Jesus is the son of God and the Way to God.
But all the rest of the article, when you keep that only One God Who is One, in your mind is a worthy collection of words to remind people of that greatness of the Most High and how in the ancient times people looked up at Him.

*

To remember

  • Asaph felt lonely + alone > God silent => remembered days of old + God redeemed Israel from out of the hand of the enemy in Egypt, + brought them to Canaan, +gave them land for an inheritance, + established His name in their midst.
  • enemy had attempted to wipe out religion of Israelites by destroying their places of worship > temple + synagogue destroyed by the enemy
  • we can trust Jehovah God to know when enough is enough <=  God = never early, never late; always right on time, not limited by our calendar or clock.
  • God’s purposes are ever so much bigger than anything we can imagine.
  • Asaph did not ask God to defend His people, but His own holy and righteous name => to be preserved holy and blameless in the eyes of the enemy.
  • Asaph wanted deliverance, not for his own sake, or for the sake of his countrymen =  for the testimony of the God of mercy and grace.
  • not forget that God = still in control in affairs of men.
  • elements of Asaph’s prayer in psalm 74 should be present in all of our prayers
  • our guest writer compares Psalm 74 to the Model Prayer as recorded in Matthew 6:9-13.
  • When you pray > do not be afraid to let God know how you feel <= He already knows anyway
  • When you pray > Praise Him for who He is + for His will to be done, + for provision + forgiveness, deliverance

The Abundant Heart

sunset-over-lake God rules the day and the night, and He can be trusted with the details of my life too.

Does it seem as though this world could not get any more debauched than it is already? Do you feel as though God is not watching? that He does not care? I can assure you that He is, and He does. But perhaps He is waiting for His people to cry out to Him in humble prayer.

Asaph felt the same way. The enemy was having a heyday, making a mockery of the God of Israel and destroying everything in their path, leaving nothing but pain and misery in their wake. Asaph did the one thing he could do—he cried out to the God of the universe, the Maker of heaven and earth, summer and winter, to defend Himself in the presence of the enemy.

from Psalm 74
Maschil of Asaph

Over de ‘normaliteit’ van antisemitisme in Europa

Vonden bepaalde Christenen het niet beter om te zorgen dat de Joden als “Godmoordenaars” zo vlug mogelijk uit Europa zouden verdwijnen, door hen Israël aan te bieden?

In de 16de eeuw kon Luther mensen al warm maken om Joden te verachten en hun synagogen in brand te steken! Het antisemitisme is bij bepaalde christengroeperingen nooit ver weg geweest en door de vele vluchtelingen zien zij nu weer een kans om de Joden als een etterbuil te bekijken in het hele verhaal van allerlei ruzies onder gelovigen van de verscheidene strekkingen.
Populistische politici zien de kans mooi om nu het laken voor Jodenhaat door te schuiven naar die bevolkingsgroep die hier heil komt zoeken maar waarvan er ook enkelen zijn die onze waarden van een vrije samenleving niet willen aanvaarden en hun beperkingen hier willen doorvoeren.

Een grote meerderheid van diegenen die zich keren tegen zo wel moslims als Joden en beweren Christen te zijn, vergeten dat zij totaal tegen de leer van Jezus Christus gaan. Die Jezus was een Joodse rebbe die vrede en verdraagzaamheid onder elkaar predikte. Van hen die zich Christen noemen zou men dan op zijn minst die naastenliefde en prediking voor wederzijdse verdraagzaamheid verwachten.

De vele Europese politici die in hun partij het woordje “Christen” dragen of “democraat” zullen er nog veel aan moeten doen dat de burger hen gaat geloven en erkennen als politici die een vrije democratische wereld nastreven waar er pluralisme mag en zal zijn en iedereen vrij zijn godsdienst of levensbeschouwing zal mogen volgen en uiten.

Voor het ogenblik zien wij meer en meer politici van die christen strekkingen en zogenaamd liberale Europeanen die de vrijheden van de mensen meer en meer willen beperken en zelfs nergens nog geloofssymbolen willen zien.

*

Te herinneren

11.29 歐洲議會106年「歐中關係報告」報告人貝柏士議員,與副總統相互交流 (24844379918).jpgBas Belder spreker van de “Stichting Herleving gebed voor Israël” en lid van het Europees Parlement, die gelooft dat de (tijdelijke) verwerping der Joden de verzoening is der wereld {Uitgelicht} haalde in zijn lezing te Waddinxveen op woensdag 8 februari 2017 aan hoe hij in Straatsburg in het Europees Parlement jaren achtereen maandelijks met een gepensioneerd medicus van Joodse origine sprak. Hij hoorde hem nog zeggen:

“Het antisemitisme in Europa is de normaalste zaak van de wereld geworden.”

Daarop stelt hij de vraag:

Onderkennen wij als christenen ook in deze realiteit het gevaar van haar ‘normaliteit’?

en kijkt naar de Duitse antisemitisme-onderzoeker prof. Monika Schwarz-Friesel die in de zomer 2016 een opinieartikel plaatste dat als een regelrechte aanklacht leest:

“Wenn Antisemitismus normal wird”.

  •  rede Palestijnse leider Machmud Abbas eind juni 2016 in het Europees Parlement in Brussel
  • bestrijding van antisemitisme op Europees niveau
  • rabbijn gevraagd om te reageren op de toenemende bedreigingen aan het adres van de Joodse gemeenschappen in Duitsland wees verzoek van de hand, wegens vrees + angst => anonimiteit
  • hoofdredacteur van het Nieuw Israëlitisch Weekblad, Esther Voet blijft haar mond tegen het antisemitisme opendoen
  • niet rechts-extremisme waardoor er anno 2017 zwaarbewapende marechaussee voor onze Joodse scholen staat + niet vanwege voetbalhooligans dat Joodse instellingen moeten worden bewaakt > Dodelijk antisemitisme anno 2017 komt vanuit islamitische hoek.
  • zomer 2014 pro-Palestijnse massabetogingen in ware belegeringen + brandbomaanslagen op verscheidene synagoges in het centrum van Parijs + haar voorsteden > klonken leuzen = “Hitler had gelijk”, “Slacht de Joden af” + “Dood aan de Joden”.
  • Bassam Tibi publiceerde “Zugewanderter Judenhass” ofwel “Binnengekomen Jodenhaat” > gevaarlijkste antisemitisme dat vandaag gedijt = komt uit de wereld van de islam
  • in 2017 Duitsland zes miljoen moslims.
  • islamitisch antisemitisme

Vreemd genoeg mag het zijn dat de EU het in 2017 het ook aardig liet afweten toen de UNESCO de historische en religieuze banden van de Joden met de heilige plaatsen in Jeruzalem en Hebron ontkende. Terecht noemde Guy Milliere dit immoreel en antisemitisch.

Ook kunnen wij er niet onderuit dat er in Frankrijk en België al veel langer sprake van virulent antisemitisme, dat te vaak door de media wordt verdoezeld of toegedekt. Omtrent Frankrijk zegt Noémie Halioua, journaliste bij het weekblad Actualité Juive

 “De meeste media, vooral die van linkse signatuur, verkeren in een staat van ontkenning.”

“Door te doen alsof antisemitisme uit islamitische hoek uit de lucht komt vallen, hopen ze kennelijk dat het op een of andere manier vanzelf verdwijnt.” (Trouw, 17 januari 2018).

Stichting Herleving Gebed voor Israel

Lezing St. Herleving Gebed voor Israël, Waddinxveen, woensdag 8 februari 2017

Geachte aanwezigen,

Als Jood getuigde de dichter en theoloog Isaäc Da Costa (1798-1860) van vervolging en smart. In navolging van Psalm 129.

Zij hebben, zegge Isrel, van ouds my gekweld,
Benaauwd van der jeugd aan, geploegd als een veld.
Toch hebben zy tegen my niet overmocht.
Maar rouw blijft mijn deel en mijn leed onbezocht.

Deze klacht, deze aanklacht heeft tot op heden niets aan schrijnende actualiteit verloren.

“He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book. What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!”

Dependable Promises

It is the hope given to every human being that he may count on the Divine Creator when he is willing to give himself in the hands of the Most High Establisher God above all gods.

Much too often it is only in difficult times or awful moments that people come to remember God and come to ask Him for favours.

Today we must be aware that we come in very challenging times in which we can see enough signs that the end-times is near. We not only have to strengthen ourselves but also have to prepare those around us for the times coming. Knowing our own limitations we should know that the Most Almighty is willing to be with us, to be our Guide and to be our Rock. On Him we can count. To Him we should look forward.

As worshippers of the Only One True God we should bring others to find the Way to God as well so that they too can feel comfortable in the glory of the Most High.

*

To remember

  • times when there is nothing we can do to change our predicaments > even specialists can bring us no cure or solution
  • There is limit to what even the most intelligent + most skilled of us can do => situations + moments when God matters most to many people
  • time when being reminded of God’s faithfulness = very comforting + very much needed.
  • not failed one word of all His promises.
  • He never ever turns back on His word =>  find courage + peace because we know > He is our savior, our provider, our deliver, our healer Who has never failed us => assurance, courage, + comfort.
  • place our total dependence + utmost confidence in God for our victory. {Victories and Conquests}
  • Revelation 3.10 - Kept from Trials - 2to those who live for God’s pleasure > Despite all obstacles, challenges, oppositions + enemies, despite our inabilities + limitations = God isn’t stopped => He brings us safely to His promise {Living in His Promises}
  • The hour of temptation—the great time of testing will come, but we as God’s people need not worry or fear; God will protect us. {Kept From Trials}
  • God never leave us or forsake us {Kept From Trials}
  • His followers, we will be treated extremely badly; that’s for sure. For others who don’t have a personal, loving, saving relationship with Matthew 10.31 - Sparrows Don't Fear; More So UsHim, that’s really dreadful. But for us, He also gave the reason not be scared: we are very valuable to Him {No Worry; No Fear}
  • God turns our worst experiences to great opportunities.{No Worry; No Fear}
  • Praise God, He’s willing to grant us mercy, to bless us, to delight in us. {Mercy, Blessings, Pleasure}
  • Because of God’s mercy, we don’t have to fear a nation’s or even this world’s impending doom. {Mercy, Blessings, Pleasure}

*

If things aren’t adding up in your life or happening as quickly as you’d like, remind yourself that God is still on His throne. All is not lost. He is working things out for your good. He will give you the strength to endure as he develops character in you. Nothing has the power to completely overtake you as long as He is on His throne. {God Is Still On His Throne}
