Jayson Casper has presents his view about Israel on his blog and looks at certain Messianic Jews and wonders how evangelicals should identify with the issues Israel faces. Jamie Cowen, an Israeli lawyer and a believer in Jesus says: “going through Messianic Jews is best.” This brings Casper to think the complexity of Israel divides… Lees verder Evangelical influence in the Jewish world
From the onset, there have been real followers of the Nazarene master teacher. Centuries past and many false teachings entered Christendom, but in Christianity, several people kept to the True Biblical Words and kept worshipping only the One true God. Also in the Jewish community, there were people who came to see that Jeshua was the way to God and that he was the promised Messiah.
Today it has even become more important that those Jews who follow Jeshua as their Messiah should unit and feel strengthened by their unity all over the world.

With love from your Torah Observant Brothers and Sisters
My dearest brothers and sisters in Christ,
A mass exodus from man-made religions has been happening over the last few years, specifically since the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 prophecy in 2017, but much more frequently over the last few months, even weeks. Unfortunately, many of these once avid believers were subsequently led astray by various new age deceptions or have abandoned their faith all together. However, an ever-growing number of us took a different route- we all have a very similar testimony, in fact. More and more things that we were being taught at church started to contradict Scripture, and our pastors and religions avoided answering any questions that challenged their doctrines like the plague. Everyone online started constantly bickering over different doctrines and clashing over theologies. We all claim to serve the same God and love Jesus, but that’s…

In the 19th and 20th century for several Jews it was to dangerous to speak Hebrew and between the 30ies and 40ies of the previous century, many Yews in Europe were brought up by non-Jewish people, hiding those kids from the Nazi’s. That made that several of those European Jews did not learn Hebrew, but luckily their foster parents respected their Jewishness and provide possibilities to hold their traditional feasts and prayermoments.
Whilst many do not speak Hebrew and or speak a little bit of Yiddish, we do find others who speak Hebrew but are not at all religious Jews. Therefore we should be very careful when we judge those Hebrew speaking non-religious Jews who live in Israel and do lots of things that are against the Torah and as such are an abomination in the eyes of the Elohim. Therefore saying “From our perspective, Hebrews are people who choose to leave the culture of idol worship in order to seek Truth. ” is giving a wrong idea about the present Hebrew speaking population, but also against the religious Jews who do not speak Hebrew, but have adopted the languages where their ancestors and they have been brought up in the previous years.
- Abram’s genealogy goes back to a man named Eber, a great-grandson of Noah.
- The designation of “Hebrew” refers to the fact that Abram descended from Eber and that he came from the “other side” (ever) of the Euphrates River.
- term Hebrew = of “crossing over” = exemplified through Abram’s life’s journey <= no longer wanted to follow ways of idol-worshipping culture => crossed over to seek YAH with all his might.
- modern-day connotation of a Hebrew > Hebrews =?= Jewish.
Abram was born in the city of Ur in early Babylon, His father sold idols. We find that Abram’s genealogy goes back to a man named Eber, a great-grandson of Noah. The designation of “Hebrew” refers to the fact that Abram descended from Eber and that he came from the “other side” (ever) of the Euphrates River.
The term Hebrew takes on a meaning of “crossing over” which is exemplified through Abram’s life’s journey. He was a man who no longer wanted to follow the ways of an idol-worshipping culture. Instead, he was a person who crossed over to seek YAH with all his might. Read Genesis 14:3
The modern-day connotation of a Hebrew is that Hebrews are Jewish. But as can be found in Scripture, Abram is not so restricted. Instead, Abram becomes Abraham a father of many nations and believers in a Living Elohiym.
From our perspective, Hebrews…

As oldest Jewish congregation in the United States they held… Lees verder First New York Synagogue (1728)
Our understanding of Scriptures is received by our different characters with different views and necessarily conveyed in human words and imagery.
Out of nothing, using nothing, from nothing, simply by God’s Word speaking ‘Into Being’ everything came into being.
Theology should simply be understood to be the ‘study of the Theos,’ The God Who gives a theological illumination in chapter 1 of Genesis.
Even when we do not know how God made everything, it is not as such something to know, but something we have to accept and believe.
In the end, people shall come to understand that “Its all up to God. God’s will be done.” People also shall come to see that everything is connected and that by following God’s advice, given in the many assembled books, man shall be able to make the best of his life, capable for the challenges of our lives in corporately challenging times and circumstances.

Genesis 2:5-9 passage
He looks at the introduction of the El or the Mighty – high-ranking god, YHWH or Jehovah and compaes Him with the heathen’s el (or god).
- we can only know the One who was called ‘El’ by men if the real God chooses to reveal their Reality. And so YHWH does!
- God = explicit first cause
- ground described metaphorically = having a face which God has tended with gentle moisture >God takes dust of the ground + forms an animate being with a face that is really sensitive + responsive +> first conception: ‘God formed… God breathed… > the man became
- scope for an ongoing relationship with God as equals in nature in some vital respects.
- God = only One capable of making a universe or matter with capacity to form life
- God’s world = placed under our authority + control > our delicate stewardship, which must consider whether this plant is to be made a crop or a weed, and whether this bush will live here or there or not at all.
- God’s creation = designed to point to a quality of life which reaches beyond our physical existence for a few short decades, + a quality of wisdom which is grounded in simple knowledge but then goes beyond what we might find out for ourselves.
On the 17th of January 2021 the article we reblogged was not anymore to be connected. Well are the following articles there to be read where he a.o. mentions that God is a hard worker and that it is how the universe got to be here.
God is an abundantly creative worker: that’s how the world with all its variety (including you and me) came to be here.
For him, it is also clear that Jehovah God doesn’t want us to ‘’die’’, but remarks:
That, of course, is what did happen when the first people trespassed across this known boundary. They sinned to their own eternal harm. We break God’s commandments and find that we ourselves are broken on them. If we break them, it is even more the case that they break us.
It is also by the bond of people:
The marriage of one man to one woman is God’s invention, and like the rest of His creation it is ‘good’. Also, like the rest of the created order, it has been affected by the fall. Sin spoils marriages and ultimately blasts people apart. But if we will keep looking to the One who gave us the gift of marriage, and if we trust in His resources, we can nevertheless know a wonderful harmony and intimacy.

Passing of Maimonides (1204) Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, Talmudist, Halachist, physician, philosopher and communal leader, known in the Jewish world by the acronym "Rambam" and to the world at large as "Maimonides", passed away in Egypt on the 20th of Tevet in 1204 (4965).

Perhaps we still have to wait until mid-2021 before we can come to normal living again, but at least we can see already a tiny light at the end of the tunnel.
To all a better and newer year full of hope.
May we be blessed to use 2021 for further refection and repair – repairing a world that has been torn by a pandemic and our own wastefulness.
It is perhaps fitting that the Jewish community will finish its annual reading of the book of Genesis just as the secular year is ending. Or maybe not; Genesis ends with the deaths of both Jacob and Joseph, on a sorrowful note that portends hundreds of years of slavery.
This year we need something more upbeat, something stirring and hopeful as we exit a year that took the planet by surprise, a year that shattered our expectations of the 21st century and a year whose very name stands for clear vision.
And yet 2020 was a year marked by murkiness and uncertainty. It felt as if we were moving in a fog. We couldn’t see the end, and didn’t know how to fight an invisible enemy that might or might not kill us. At first we were told that we didn’t need masks. Then we were told that masks…

Onder auspiciën van de stichting Morasha voltrekt zich een studie naar de veranderende relaties russen de Sefardische en de Asjkenazische gemeenten in Amsterdam, gedurende de tweede helft van de achttiende eeuw.
Every day man is able to see “Creation”, though many do not see the Hand behind all those beautiful things around us.
Let us not forget that The Hand behind everything is The Eternal Invisible Great MasterMaker, Who wants the best for all and looks forward to the days that His creation shall be restored and mankind shall be as a child with Him as Father again.
We look at the raki’a, hashomayim, creatures and chok foreseen by the Bore. With admiration we can then perceive the revelation of the Hand behind all this and hear His whispering Voice.
When God spoke to Job, He gave him some considerations from creation that everyone should ponder about
The expanse in the sky and their lights, the sea, vegetation, birds of the air, fish in the sea, animals and all creatures that move in the water and along the ground were created by God before humankind. ‘God is not a God of disorder’ (1 Corinthians 14:33) and so He ‘made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding’ (Jeremiah 10:12). In creating all else before mankind, God wanted us to learn from creation, and ‘rule over all the earth and over all the creatures’ (Genesis 1:26). However, some take it to extremes and ‘worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator- who is forever praised. Amen’ (Romans 1:25), while others neglect the earth, pollute the environment, and mistreat animals and people alike. God did not intend creation to be worshipped, neither to…
