I hear a lot of talk lately about how many things are not fair. Who said life was fair?

Whose standard would be used in order for something to be judged fair? The mere fact that a judgment must be made insures a standard must be used to measure against. A judgment of competing ideas or goal requires that a determination be made as to which idea or portion of an idea is better than another. When a judgment is made it also means one idea or part of an idea was discriminated against. Judgments such as this have been made by each of us for many years, such as what we wear and how we wear it. The clothes we chose not to wear could complain it is not fair that they were not chosen and that they were discriminated…

Hoe om God se stem te hoor

Baie keer as ek sê dat die Heilige Gees vir my hierdie-of-daardie gesê of gewys het, is die eerste vraag wat ek kry: “Hoe?”.

God praat met ons op verskillende maniere. Omdat Hy ons inside out ken, weet Hy ook watter kommunikasie metodes om te gebruik sodat ons kan hóór. Dit is ook ‘n leerproses om Sy stem te kan onderskei.

God ken ons harte en weet wanneer ons regtig ‘n hunkering na Hom het. As ons tot Hom nader, sal Hy tot ons nader. Maar ons moet die eerste move maak.

Ons gedagtewêreld moet ‘n…

(Openbaring 18) ‘n Verwikkeling wat regstreeks met die komende verdrukking in verband staan, is die herbouing van die eens roemryke wêreldstad, Babilon, aan die oewers van die Eufraatrivier.

As we move into the Passover/Easter season, we once again reflect on who Jesus is and what he has done for us. This prophecy by Isaiah was foretold over 700 years before Christ was born. Jesus wasn’t murdered by accident, God had a plan for our salvation and Jesus came to fulfill it

Jesus was wounded for our transgressions or sins. All the punishment that Jesus endured was because of you! Think about that, if you ever feel like nobody loves you, guess what somebody really does. God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son (John 3:16) he took the punishment of the cross for yours and my sins. We must never forget the love of…
