WE HAVE MANY REASONS TO REJOICE!

Ps 30:5 For His displeasure is for a moment, His delight is for life; Weeping might last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. (We can rejoice in the knowledge of the character of Yahweh: His slowness to anger, and readiness to save). Pro 10:28 The righteous look forward to joy, but the … Continue reading

WAT IS DAAR OM NA UIT TE SIEN IN DIE SEWENDE MAAND?

Daar is baie mense wat frons oor die feeste en wat geen rede sien waarom gelowiges in die Messias vandag nog die feeste moet hou nie. Om hulle standpunt te steun, gryp hulle na verse in die Skrif soos Jes 1:14 “Julle nuwemane en julle feestye haat my siel; hulle is vir My ‘n oorlas”; … Continue reading

THE DELIVERANCE OF ELOHIM

I experienced something this past week that I am sure many of you have experienced before. While I was reading Psalm 50 earlier this week, I was suddenly reminded very clearly of something that happened many years ago – 21 years ago, to be exact. I am not sure why I started to read this … Continue reading

VAN ONGESUURDE BRODE TOT ONGESTOORDE RUS

Afrikaans is ‘n taal wat lief is daarvoor om woorde met “onge…” te begin, soos ongeduldig, ongebonde, ongebore, ongehoord, ongedaan, ongeletterd, ongesuurd en nog tientalle ander. In die Hebreeuse taal kom hierdie verskynsel glad nie voor nie. Vir die Afrikaanse “ongeduldig” het Hebreeus bloot “katsar” (wat iets soos “vies” beteken); vir die Afrikaanse “ongehoord” het … Continue reading

Ezek 45:18 Thus said the Master Yahweh, “In the first month, on the first of the new moon, you are to take a young bull, a perfect one, and shall cleanse the set-apart place. ” A perfect offer is to be brought before Yahweh in this time before Pesach (and during). While we don’t have … Continue reading

YOM KIPPUR OF AFGEWATERDE VERSOENING?

Met die aanbreek van Yom Kippur vanjaar (2017) is dit ʼn vraag of mense vandag nog enigsins verstaan wat versoening werklik beteken. Nie net mense wat NIE die Skrif erken nie, maar ook mense wat bely dat hulle die Skrif ken en hulle lewens op die beginsels van die Skrif bou. As sommige gelowiges hoor … Continue reading

ALLES OP SY BEPAALDE TYD

Prediker 3 is ʼn hoofstuk wat mense soms teenoor mekaar aanhaal, sonder om te besef dat dit eintlik uit die Skrif uit kom. ʼn Mens hoor dikwels dat iemand sê: “Alles het sy tyd” of “Daar is ʼn tyd vir alles”, min wetende dat hulle in werklikheid die bekende Prediker van die Skrif aangehaal het. … Continue reading

LAAT JULLE STEMME HOOR!

Die fees wat vanaand (21 September 2017) begin, staan bekend as die Trompettefees of Yom Teruah, wat letterlik eintlik maar net “Dag van die harde geroep of die harde geluid of die harde geskal” beteken. Die Jode (of Yehudiem) het reeds gisteraand met die fees begin en hulle noem dit Rosh Hashanah wat “Begin van … Continue reading

SHAVUOT (FEAST OF WEEKS / PENTECOST)

Let us look at some of the main features of SHAVUOT by highlighting each of the seven letters making up the word S-H-A-V-U-O-T (A Hebrew word literally meaning “weeks”): S   Setting aside the Set-apart days of Yahweh The sanctity of time … Lev 23:21 And on this same day you shall proclaim a set-apart gathering … Continue reading

IN THE WAKE OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

We are into the third week after Unleavened Bread and pretty much in the middle of the period known as “Counting the Omer”. What is a bit confusing about this designation “Counting the Omer” is that it is NOT really the OMER that is being counted, but the DAYS between the WAVING OF THE OMER … Continue reading

CROSSING OVER THIS PASSOVER

Read 2 Chronicles 35:1-2; 16-19. In the weeks before this Feast of Unleavened Bread we have focused on the urgent need for believers, in this particular point in time, to take a critical look at their own lives and to the world around them – a world that seems to have lost its moral compass … Continue reading

DIE PROFETIESE BETEKENIS VAN TROMPETTE

Die fees reg aan die begin van die sewende maand, volgens die kalender wat in die Skrif gevolg word, word “Yom Teruah” genoem en normaalweg as “Trompettefees” of “Feast of Trumpets” vertaal. Die boek van Openbaring, wat bekend is vir sy herhaalde gebruik van die getal “sewe”, maak melding van die “sewe trompette” wat in … Continue reading

DIT WAT OP DAARDIE PESAG GEBEUR HET

Verlede week het ons gefokus op die beskrywing in Johannes 12 toe Y’shua 5 dae voor Pesag (en dus ook 5 dae voor sy dood) op die vul van ʼn esel Jerusalem binnegegaan het. Ons het na die oorweldigende reaksie van die skare gekyk, met hulle palmtakke en uitroepe van sekere profesieë oor die Messias … Continue reading

DIT WAT VOOR DAARDIE PESAG GEBEUR HET

Die vraag word soms gevra waarop ons vandag behoort te fokus, wanneer ons die Pesag vier. Behoort ons te fokus op die eerste Pesag, toe die Israeliete uit Egipte getrek het of behoort ons liewer die fokus te laat val op die belangrike en deurslaggewende Pesag (kom ons noem dit die tweede Pesag) toe Y’shua … Continue reading

YOM HASHEMINI 2015

Hierdie dag staan ook bekend as “Shemini Atseret” wat gewoonlik vertaal word met “The Assembly of the Eighth Day”. Lev 23:36 “Sewe dae lank moet julle aan Yahweh ‘n vuuroffer bring. Op die agtste dag (“Yom Hashemini”) moet daar vir julle ‘n afgesonderde byeenkoms wees, en julle moet aan Yahweh ‘n vuuroffer bring. Dit is … Continue reading

SHAVUOT 2015

“Shavuot” kom van die woord “sheva” wat in Hebreeus twee betekenisse kan hê: (1) Om iets sewe maal te doen en (2) om ‘n eed te neem, te sweer of iets te belowe. Hierdie twee betekenisse hou baie sterk met mekaar verband, want in die antieke tye het jy ‘n eed geneem of gesweer deur … Continue reading

HOE BEREI MENS VOOR VIR PESAG?

Sommige mense sal daarop wys dat Pesag (Pasga) en Ongesuurde Brode ‘n fees van herinnering is. Dit herinner ons jaar na jaar aan gebeure wat lank gelede plaasgevind het. ‘n Mens berei jou immers slegs voor vir iets wat nog moet gebeur – nie vir iets wat reeds gebeur het nie. Of is Pesag dalk … Continue reading

TIEN DAE VAN VOORBEREIDING

Die tien dae tussen Yom Teruah (Dag van Trompette) en Yom Kippur (Dag van Versoening) word normaalweg gesien as dae van voorbereiding met die oog op Yom Kippur. Die Yehudiem noem dit “The Days of Awe”. Waarom moet ‘n mens spesiaal voorberei vir Yom Kippur? Daar word geen melding in die Skrif gemaak oor “The … Continue reading

HOSHIANAH – GEE TOG REDDING!

Onder die Yehudiem staan die sewende dag van Sukkot bekend as Hoshana Rabbah, wat vertaal kan word as “Die groot Hoshana” of “Die groot Begeerte na Redding”. Die woord “Hoshana” of Hosanna (soos dit allerweë in Afrikaans bekend is) is afgelei van die Hebreeuse uitdrukking “hoshiah na” wat eintlik beteken: “Gee tog redding!” of “Red … Continue reading

COUNTING THE OMER

PESAG EN NUWE LEWE

Daar is soveel simboliek van nuwe lewe wat na vore kom as ‘n mens na die gebeure kyk wat met die Israeliete se uittog uit Egipte gepaard gegaan het. Dieselfde bonatuurlike ingryping van Yahweh wat gelei het tot die dood van die eersgeborenes van Egipte, het gelei tot LEWE (of die behoud/bewaring van lewe) van … Continue reading

PESAG, IN WIE SE NAAM?

Die Joodse tradisie is om 4 bekers te gebruik tydens die Pesag seder maaltyd. Ons volg nie hierdie gebruik nie, omdat dit nie ‘n Skriftuurlike voorskrif is nie. Daar moet egter ‘n rede wees waarom daar spesifiek VIER bekers gebruik word. Baie verklarings word hiervoor aangebied. Party sê dis omdat die Israeliete van VIER bose … Continue reading

Daar behoort by ons geen twyfel te bestaan dat Yom Kippur inderdaad ook vir ons bedoel is nie. As iemand … Continue reading

GEPASTE INLEIDING VIR PESAG

(die mens moet) voedseloffers bring – “voedseloffer” (mingah) beteken om te gee, om op te offer, prys te gee; “bring” … Continue reading

SUKKOT AND THE MEANING OF LIFE

We have seen that Sukkot is a feast of joy.  Funny that the book of Kohelet (Ecclesiastes / Prediker) is traditionally seen as a fitting book to read during the feast of Sukkot.  Many people feel that Ecclesiastes is a depressing book.  It begins with the words “All is futile” (1:2) and it ends with … Continue reading

MET YOM KIPPUR HET EK ONTDEK …

Dit is nie vreemd om in die Skrif ‘n uitspraak aan te tref nie wat só verwoord word asof dit alreeds plaasgevind het, terwyl dit gaan oor ‘n werklikheid wat nog eers êrens in die toekoms moet plaasvind. So het Yahweh byvoorbeeld vir Mosheh in Num 21:34 gesê: “Wees nie bevrees vir hom (die koning … Continue reading

TRUMPETS AND THE COMING OF MESSIAH

Yom Teruah beteken letterlik “Dag van die groot geskal” (Engels: “Day of clamour”) en in die Skrif word die woord “teruah” normaalweg binne die konteks van die blaas van ramshorings (“shofars”) of trompette gebruik. Soms is daar egter ook sprake van ander bronne van “geskal” of “geraas” en daar is ‘n hele aantal gevalle waar … Continue reading
