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.

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 …

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

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 …

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 …

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! …

Compassion based on a Lie isn’t God’s Love

Posted on May 28, 2020 by Wanda Alger  The consistent argument that is causing such division within the Body of Christ concerning the pandemic seems to be whether or not we truly love others.

by J. Heinrich Arnold Life needs a center, a core, an axis to revolve around and anchor our physical and philosophical existence.

Ignorance is killing us!

Reading: Matthew 24 and Isaiah 22 A warning, speaking out in preparation for “the news”! I’m pretty sure that the evil that is covering the nations today like a tsunami can not be “voted” away!
