Taking up Esther and Mordechai’s Royal Mantle

by Asher Intrater This year, in preparing for our Esther Consecration, through studying and meditating on the book of Esther, I have become even more aware of an underlying theme that has to do with the coming of the kingdom of God, and of its timing. The kingdom of God comes in stages; each stage has a timing for fulfillment; the …

Medical dictatorship

By Drs. E. Noordermeer Somehow people are prone to doom scenarios. Climate prophets threaten a rising sea level. The WWF lists one million species in danger of extinction. Plant species are also disappearing. Financial trend watchers are not rosy either. Our money system is about to explode or implode, banks can collapse, our money can …

For the Sake of Unity

It’s this constant reminder not to be harsh against our brothers and sisters and not to attack each other for the sake of unity and love that hinders and even angers me in a way.  At the end of the war on “the idiot called Trump” we need to stop attacking each other with facts …

Embracing the Shaking

By Lisa Great It has been well documented that the United States of America was made into a corporation with the unconstitutional passing of the Act of 1871. The passing of this Act brought major changes on the people of the United States, but most had no idea what they lost. Now today in 2021, …

What’s your Source of Information?

You don’t know what you are missing when you don’t know what they keep from you! Although “idiots” is the word I’ve used (too) often in 2020, I still go for the word IGNORANCE as word of the year 2020.But, I n silencing of the voices, they always miscalculate the insight beyond information, the seeing …

Discord through the Corona-crisis

Sitting at my desk and by writing these words I hope to express my awe and thankfulness to Esther Noordermeer from the Netherlands as she gave an unbelievable clear lecture on the issue of "Discord through the Corona-crisis." https://www.youtube.com/embed/1QI_sJelJqA Sorry to say that it is in my native language Dutch and so only available for …

Some Thoughts on Books and Reading

By A.W. Tozer ONE BIG PROBLEM IN MANY PARTS of the world today is to learn how to read, and in others it is to find something to read after one has learned. In our favored West we are overwhelmed with printed matter, so the problem here becomes one of selection. We must decide what …

Its a journey

In the moments of conversation and (re)connection, I can really say that our hearts are rejoicing about the beauty and significance of the way we see Him working. As I took the month of November to sit at my fireplace outside every day from 17.00 till 18.00, it was mainly to “see” Him clear (as …

How can I keep from singing

Tonight I was introduced to the lyrics and history of this very special song. As she kept her promise and posted the initiative of the choir recording from the Hope Christian School, Debbie Zepick made me dig in the background of this historical and already song-of-the-year-2020 peace of art.As I DuckDuckGo-ed ( a new word …

So I left

Leaving the Town square Has been quite an experience, leaving the “town square” called social media, the place where we met and talked and shared. The place also where we peaked into each others life and secretly observed from a distance. It was crowded and intense to be amongst and follow the talk, the exploration …

When the time is set

“Leave the nest because you are hurting the others.” Never forget that moment as I was struggling in my resistance to what I sensed as unfair and misdirection. I hate it to observe injustice, hypocrisy, ignorance or any other misacting or misunderstanding around me. It was in the early 90ties while much was happening in …

Stranger in a Strange Land

No, I didn’t write this amazing piece. It’s part of the Torah readings (First Fruits of Zion : The Weekly eDrash) I receive weekly, going through the Word, in sync with the Jewish people. But I can honestly say that this article came in time and gave me a full and even greater perspective of …

When Egypt becomes your ally!

““Ah, stubborn children,” declares the Lord, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek …

The End-Time Prayer Movement

Mike Bickle Adapted from chapter 7 of Harp & Bowl Handbook, by Mike Bickle There is a significant relationship between the end-time worship and prayer movement and the revelation of Jesus as our Bridegroom God. Some stumble over this truth, but it is essential that we emphasize the revelation that His eternal nature is all-consuming love …

It’s Time for the Church to Have a Voice

– Nathan Shaw Pentecost gave the Church a voice. The voice had authority. The voice penetrated to the heart of Jerusalem (Acts 5:28, 6:7). People had two options: hear the voice or resist the voice. There was no force or manipulative coercion. Each person had to make their own free will decision. Those who responded …

Stop Saying ‘I Love You’

As I was looking for the most misused words “I love you”, I found this post by an unknown author as I could not discover the origin but had to post it. So remember, the “I” in the post is not me. The words "I love you" are losing their impact when people say it …

A Generous Consecration: Resetting the altars of our lives

By Alan Scott There is something about this national moment that is resetting the altars of our lives. It feels poignant. Everything stripped back. It’s like a cleansing of the temple. God is resetting worship. He is restoring worship and reclaiming worship in this moment. The reordering of worship overturns the current popular practices of …

Fatherhood and Answers

Fatherhood does not give the answers, but it carries the question, so it can rest, develop and come to existence! If you ever wonder why there comes no (direct) answers from The Father on your questions, be sure that He carries that question (as a womb), so it can rest, develop and come to existence! …
