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 …

REST – The ultimate weapon

The Treasures of Africa

So, how about Yesterday

As there will always be a yesterday, we are not so sure that there will be a tomorrow! But then what about yesterday, as we are so obviously being taught that looking back is a wrong thing to do. But reflecting yesterday from the perspective of approaching tomorrow is the wisest thing you can ever do. …

Nehemiah’s Concern

I wrote the header of this block some days ago and never finished as the title dropped in my spirit by seeing the efforts of so many beautiful young churches.

Running Out of Oil?

The Parable of the 10 Virgins “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like 10 virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the groom. Five of them were foolish and five were sensible. When the foolish took their lamps, they didn’t take olive oil with them. But the sensible ones took oil …

Forerunners

GOD IS MAKING ALL THINGS EVIDENT IN THESE DAYS               Words of prophecy: In these days, I am bringing my "forerunners" into perfect position - both spiritually and locationally.

Songs of Ascents (8) – Building the House

Psalm 127 The Blessing of the Lord A Solomonic song of ascents. 1 Unless the Lord builds a house, its builders labor over it in vain; unless the Lord watches over a city, the watchman stays alert in vain.

As the System challenges me…

We have challenged the system and now the system (in us) is challenging us… Read 1 Peter 4 Following Christ 1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in the flesh, equip yourselves also with the same resolved — because the one who suffered in the flesh has finished with sin — 2 in order to live the remaining time in the flesh, no longer for human desires, but for God’s will. 3 For there has already been enough time spent in doing what the pagans choose to do: carrying on in unrestrained behavior, evil desires, drunkenness, orgies, carousing, and lawless idolatry. 4 So they are surprised that …

This foreigner…

One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then …

The Next Step

When the next step is too obvious, the chance of repeating the past is almost certain! But how come? We shout it out almost for decades, A New Thing Is Coming and as obvious is the repeating, so is the disappointment. Reading the post of my beloved "mentor" Ron McGatlin, could maybe help us to …

What can we learn from Jesus about raising kids?

Struggling with the issue of culture and habits in the way we raise our children, being a "stranger" in an other culture, easily makes things the clash between different cultures. That's why I love this blog on raising it above our culture into His Culture!

About Steve Jobs, Nehemiah and Jesus…

Maybe not the best order as I put Steve first and definitely not to be misunderstood as my first affection... Maybe better to see it as the one I want to address first and was with us physically the most recently. Steve Jobs Although it can be that the things we think can be learned …

The Way Jesus Communicates…

John 4:31 In the meantime the disciples kept urging Him, “Rabbi, eat something.” 32 But He said, “I have food to eat that you don’t know about.” 33 The disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought Him something to eat?” 34 “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work,” Jesus told them.35 “Don’t you say, ‘There are …
