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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

The UNBALANCE and the RESET

Yesterday (Easter Day) was a scary day as “unbalance” was the word that brought me to the hospital. After waking up fresh and ready for the day to come and the happy moment with my loved ones, suddenly while watching a sermon at the Tomb Garden, the world started to rolling around like a merry-go-round! …

Silent Saturday

Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Silent Saturday, names so significant defining the days in the history of our faith! I try to understand the emotions and tension on the day of Jesus’ “death”. The pain of His family, the despair of His followers, the struggle of His betrayer... While death was the actual physical situation …

The Centrality of Jesus – A Christmas Reflection for Every Day

by J. Heinrich Arnold Life needs a center, a core, an axis to revolve around and anchor our physical and philosophical existence. Whether we like it or not, we all center our lives around something – it might be family, career, money, or sex, or ego, or an addiction. There is some element that will …

The Story of Life

By Eric Boerhout “Whoever wants to save his life should lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake should win it." Matt 16:25 Each of us has its own unique life story. It begins completely beyond our own control and will. The start is written by other people's actions and motives. Hopefully, your …

A ‘Barnyard Anointing’ Will Bring in The Harvest

By Bill Yount I hear birds singing, cows mooing, horses neighing, donkeys hee-hawing, roosters crowing, dogs barking, chickens cackling and bells ringing. I hear farm animals praising the Lord. They know it's harvest time. We better worship 'til the cows come home’. You gotta love the Barn if you want to see a Harvest. You …

When the Lord has touched your Mouth…

To those that carry the New It’s amazing how well received you are if you play along and help maintaining the Old, although carrying the New. But the moment they realize you didn’t come to confirm the Old but to Declare the New, silence and rejection becomes your part. It’s hard when the values of …

The Power of the Pen…

So, Jesus was a refugee too? https://www.bokus.com/bok/9789186683962/jesus-var-ocksa-flykting/ For some month now I have been worried about the way we find ourself using the Bible by explaining a misleading or at least dangerous thought. I have to be honest that it proves the fact that the Word is a very powerful and creating instrument where we …
