Even though we have a standing invitation to eat at “the table of Jehovah,” we must never take that invitation for granted. (1 Cor. 10:21)
We should look at the Most High Elohim, how He had chosen Himself a set-apart (or holy) people. Also in the parable of the Wedding banquet, mentioned in Matthew 22, we hear how He as the king invited His people. Because many did no go into His invitation He sent out His servants to invite… Lees verder Husband to an ancient nation
From the Hebrew Scriptures, including the Talmud we can learn that the Chosen People or Israel is eternal, so the bond with them is irreversible, unbreakable and eternal, once a Jew always a Jew. As a Jew following the Jewish rebbe Jeshua should not mean that one has to give up the Jewishness, even better being a follower of the sent one of God one can become even closer to God.
Men kan iets denken en iets uitspreken wat verwezenlijkt wordt door wat men noemt "het Woord" of "Logos". Naast dat Woord of Logos (het spreken of uitspraak) is er ook het Rhéma of wat wordt gesproken, een uiting in een toespraak of geschrift (= vorm van het gesprokene).
God has given the world His Word and Guidance for life, but everyone is free to follow it or not. It is not by doing good or doing bad that everything in life shall run like we would like it, or would go good or bad. We all know that “bad” things happen to “good” people, and no spiritual building can hold by pretending otherwise. It’s simply untrue that every well-lived life leads only to outwardly positive outcomes. It’s equally untrue that difficult circumstances prove that someone strayed from the path.
When celebrating Passover we should count our blessings and be thankful that God was willing to be by His People and to guide all of those who are willing to believe in Him and praise Him. That gratitude we should share with others and we should be ready to witness about that salvation and hope which is given to us and the rest of the world.
Bnei Yisroel as Am kadosh shall always be the most favoured or set-apart people of God, no matter that the Elohim provided now a means of others also to have their relationship with Him restored, by the ransom offering of the mashiach.
14-22 Nisan gives us time to read about how the HaShem took care of His People and provided also a solution for the goyim. All should come to recognise the Bore as their Father of fathers and God above all gods, making them pure and clean to come close to Him as His children.
how Ethan Katz looks on tefillah
- With so many different mitzvos for us to be cognizant of + so many aveiros available for us to do = impossible to actively keep all of Hashem’s mitzvos without stumbling a few times
- view aveiros as “stumbling” > instead believing that we’ve “fallen.”
- we say same two words during Shemoneh Esrei > someich noflim => someich, “He supports,” noflim, “those who are (currently) falling.”
- Satisfied, I continued my davening keeping this new way of thinking in mind.
- a machlokes in the gemara in Kiddushin 36a on the pshat of the beginning of the pasuk in Devarim (14:1) “Banim atem l’Hashem Elokeichem,” (you are sons to Hashem, your God).
- no matter what, bein kach ubein kach, we are always Hashem’s children!
Yirmiyahu (4:22)= “foolish sons.”
Devarim (32:20) “faithless sons.”
Yeshayahu (1:4) “the seed of evildoers, destructive sons.”
Hoshea (2:1), pasuk > “instead of being told (by Hashem) “you are not My nation,” Hashem will call them b’nei Kel-Chai (sons of Living-God).”
- gemara explains: granted when Jews are foolish = despite all shortcomings > still sons > not faithless > even when there is no faithfullness => faithless Jews = still called sons
- pasuk > banim mashchisim = destructive sons
in our spiritual lives, in our lives striving to keep Hashem’s Torah + mitzvos, THERE IS NO BOTTOM.
Hashem never lets us hit the bottom because we are His children eternally
=> forever child of Hakadosh Boruch Hu.
Hashem brought geulah to the Jews in Mitzrayim because a parent is always there for his children

Before I start discussing my thoughts on tefillah, I want to quickly say that although I hope to consistently post, since these ideas are actual thoughts I have when davening that help me with my kavannah and not me being mamshich through tefillah as a limud, I will be posting ideas at random, with no real seder. Having said that, I hope one day I can really go through the siddur and learn it like a mentsch. Now on to my first official post.
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
This quote, taken from a Life Alert commercial, reflects how many Jews, including myself at times, constantly feel. With so many different mitzvos for us to be cognizant of and so many aveiros available for us to do, it is impossible to actively keep all of Hashem’s mitzvos without stumbling a few times. The problem many of us face…

Looking at ge’ulah or redemption, as an echo of yetzi’at Mitzraim. The Book of books speaking about redemption from the past but also speaking about a redemption, which can come in different forms and quantities, in the future.
Jeshua asks his followers to repent and offered himself as a ransom to liberate us from the curse of death. 14 Nisan may than be the opening of Hag ha-Herut or The Holiday of Freedom.
In West-Europa hebben we de afgelopen twintig jaar veel mensen hun kerk zien verlaten, maar ook zien twijfelen aan de essentie van God. Mensen zouden moeten weten dat God Zijn Woord niet gaf om een veelheid van instituties of kerken te hebben, maar om de mensheid te leiden zodat zij uit allerlei soorten ketenen bevrijd konden worden.
Weer eens in de vroege geschiedenis van de mens komt God hem tegemoet na een verzoek van strafvermindering. Kaïn uitte wel dat hij zijn misdaad te groot vond om te dragen en besefte wel dat hij zich voor Gods oog moest verbergen terwijl hij zwervend en dwalend op de aarde moest vertoeven. Volgend op zijn… Lees verder Bereshith 4:1-24 Kaïn en de Kaïnieten #6 Bereshith 4:9-16 Straf voor de broedermoord #3 Bereshith 4:15-16 Kenteken ter bescherming
What the Scriptures tells us about how God reacted on Kayn (Cain) his act of offering and killing his brother
We come now to the position that the 1st man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, who when older brought offerings to please God.
Een kijk op "El" en "Elohim" woorden om machtigen of hogergeplaatsten zo wel als een god en/of Dé God aan te duiden.
De mensheid heeft van zijn hemelse Maker de mogelijkheid gekregen om te vallen onder Zijn Beloften van Redding. Maar ieder individu zal voor zichzelf de keuze voor de aanvaarding van die genadegave moeten maken.
