Lots of people do have lots of questions where man does not seem to have some good answer for. In the world we do find enough people who utter their ideas and bring lots of philosophical thoughts. We can listen to them and they can bring us at thinking about certain things. It is nice when people can help each other with handing out some ideas and answers.
Many years ago there where people who wondered about the same matters as we do today. Some people came to understand that they existed, not by coincidence, but that everything had a certain order and fitted in a constructed system which was allowed to exist by a Higher Being.
They too had to suffer like we today can have pains and have to face up to difficulties. Centuries long gone, more people were concerned about their being. They were also more interested in their nephesh (a Hebrew word sometimes translated into English as ‘soul’) meaning a ‘creature’, something alive. Genesis 1:21,24 are examples, thus when man was created (2:7) he was a “living creature”.
Genesis 1:21-25 (TS2009)
21 And Elohim created great sea creatures and every living being that moves, with which the waters teemed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good. 22 And Elohim blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and increase, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the fifth day. 24 And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth the living being according to its kind: livestock and creeping creatures and beasts of the earth, according to its kind.” And it came to be so. 25 And Elohim made the beast of the earth according to its kind, livestock according to its kind, and all that creep on the earth according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good.
Genesis 2:7 (TS2009)
7 And יהוה Elohim formed the man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of lives. And the man became a living being.
Having those living creatures man has to relate to them and to the Maker of them. When God made the creatures in His image, He spoke to them and wanted them not only to hear His Word but to follow His Words as well. But already soon they took against Him and did not want Him having all authority, therefore they did not obey His Words. God did still want to keep a good relation with His creatures and kept speaking out of the midst of the fire, and asked people to give ear, so that He would speak, and let the earth hear the words of His mouth. He hoped and still hopes that His teaching shall drop as the rain over the earth and that His speech will distill as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass, and like showers upon the herb.
For He will proclaim the Name of the Most High Adonai. He wants also the world to know that His wonderworks are perfect and that He wants His people to ascribe greatness to their God, Who is He Alone! People have to know that The Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are justice.
People do have to come to know that God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright He is. but we know that in the past, like today, man has dealt corruptly with Him. For that reason He does not consider them as His children because they are blemished; they are a crooked and twisted generation.
Him who made us and established us is often put aside and forgotten. For that reason we created some websites to bring those who are looking for answers, for the truth and for God to bring in remembrance the days of old. With looking at the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures, we want to consider the years of many generations and want to show others how God shows us the things we do need to know. We want to bring forth how God educates those who are willing to listen to His Voice.
As Christadelphians or Brothers in Christ, we want to get others also to become our brethren and sisters under Christ, following rabbi Jeshua, today better known under the false name Jesus. But this name being taken hold we also shall use this established name at those websites as well. But we will also show the world the right set-apart names of the main characters of the bible and shall proclaim among the Gentiles, the unbelievers or kafirs, the coming Kingdom of God where the Divine Creator hopes to see all those who love Him to be united under Christ.
Certainly now the time is getting near, we want to bring more people to see the Way to God so that they can prepare themselves for the Big Battle to come. Nations will rise against nations and religions against religions, nations in the valley of being cut to pieces: for the day of the Lord fittingly takes place in the valley of being cut to pieces. Having the world darkening the Almighty Creator will roar from Zion and utter His Voice from Jerusalem. And the heavens and the earth will be moved. And the Lord will be the hope of his people and the strength of the sons of Israel. And those who hear the Voice of God will know that He is the Lord of the Lord of lords, the Host of host their God, dwelling on Zion, His holy mountain. And Jerusalem will be holy, and strangers will not cross through it anymore.
Genesis 1:26 (TS2009)
26 And Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the livestock, and over all the earth and over all the creeping creatures that creep on the ground.”
Deuteronomy 32:1-8 (TS2009)
1 “Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak; And hear, O earth, The words of my mouth. 2 “Let my instruction fall as rain, My speech drop down as dew, As fine rain on the tender plants, And as showers on the grass. 3 “For I proclaim the Name of יהוה, Ascribe greatness to our Elohim. 4 “The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are right-ruling, An Ěl of truth and without unrighteousness, Righteous and straight is He. 5 “A twisted and crooked generation has corrupted itself, Their blemish, they are not His children. 6 “Do you do this to יהוה, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father, who bought you, Who created you and established you? 7 “Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. Ask your father and let him show you, Your elders, and let them say to you: 8 “When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance When He separated the sons of Aḏam, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl.
Deuteronomy 4:29-38 (TS98)
29 “But from there you shall seek יהוה your Elohim, and shall find, when you search for Him with all your heart and with all your being. 30 “In your distress, when all these words shall come upon you in the latter days, then you shall return to יהוה your Elohim and shall obey His voice. 31 “For יהוה your Elohim is a compassionate Ěl, He does not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them. 32 “For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that Elohim created man on the earth, and ask from one end of the heavens to the other end of the heavens, whether there has been a Word as great as this, or has been heard like it. 33 “Has a people heard the voice of Elohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? 34 “Or has Elohim tried to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of a nation by trials, and by signs, and by wonders, and by battle, and by a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and by great fearsome deeds, according to all that יהוה your Elohim did for you in Mitsrayim before your eyes? 35 “You have been shown it, to know that יהוה Himself is Elohim; there is no one beside Him. 36 “From the heavens He let you hear His voice, to instruct you, and on earth He showed you His great fire, and you heard His words out of the midst of the fire. 37 “And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their seed after them, and brought you out of Mitsrayim with His Presence, with His great power, 38 to drive out from before you nations greater and stronger than you, to bring you in, to give you their land as an inheritance, as it is today.
Joel 3:9-17 (TS98)
9 Proclaim this among the gentiles, “Prepare for battle! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of battle draw near, let them come up. 10 “Beat your ploughshares into swords and your pruning-hooks into spears, let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ ” 11 Hasten and come, all you gentiles, and gather together all around. O יהוה, let Your mighty men come down here. 12 “Let the gentiles be aroused, and come up to the Valley of Yehoshaphat. For there I shall sit to judge all the gentiles on every side. 13 “Put in the sickle, for the harvest has grown ripe. Come, go down, for the winepress is filled, the vats overflow, for their evil is great.” 14 Crowds, crowds in the valley of decision! For the day of יהוה is near in the valley of decision. 15 Sun and moon shall become dark, and stars shall withdraw their brightness. 16 And יהוה shall roar from Tsiyon, and give forth His voice from Yerushalayim. And the heavens and earth shall shake, but יהוה shall be a refuge for His people, and a stronghold for the children of Yisra’ĕl. 17 “Then you shall know that I am יהוה your Elohim, dwelling in Tsiyon, My set-apart mountain. And Yerushalayim shall be set-apart, and foreigners shall not pass through her again.
We are waiting for the return of Christ but do not want to sit still. Following the tasks Jesus has given our soul longs for the salvation for God’s children; hoping in His word. Meaning our whole attitude of mind is longing for salvation which we not only want to keep for ourselves, but want to share with others. But for the others also to be accepted they too shall have to accept our Creator’s word and must not make the same mistake of Adam and Eve. And so, as with the Psalmist, “our soul longs” for God’s “salvation”.
Psalms 119:81 (TS2009)
81 Kaph For Your deliverance my being has pined away, For I have waited for Your word.
Psalms 119:42 (TS98)
42 So that I answer my reprover, For I have trusted in Your word.
Psalms 119:72-82 (TS98)
72 The Torah of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of gold and silver pieces. 73 Your hands have made me and formed me; Make me understand, that I might learn Your commands. 74 Those who fear You see me and rejoice, For I have waited for Your Word. 75 I know, O יהוה, That Your right-rulings are righteous, And in trustworthiness You have afflicted me. 76 Please let Your kindness be for my comfort, According to Your word to Your servant. 77 Let Your compassions come to me, That I might live, For Your Torah is my delight. 78 Let the proud be put to shame, For with lies they perverted me; [But] I study Your orders. 79 Let those who fear You turn to me, And those who know Your witnesses. 80 Let my heart be perfect in Your laws, So that I am not put to shame. 81 For Your deliverance my being has pined away, For I have waited for Your word. 82 My eyes have pined away for Your word, Saying, “When would it comfort me?”
We have to be patient, but we can help each other to endure and to grow up together in the knowledge of God’s Word. With the new websites we do hope to bring more longing souls together and show them that it is worth to “long for God’s promise” (Psalm 119: 82) knowing that God’s “faithfulness endures to all generations” (Psalm 119:90). Those who “long for the salvation provided by God” and “love God His Torah (law or word) and make it their “meditation all the day” (Psalm 119:97) will, as a result say, “I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word” (Psalm 119:101).
Psalms 119:90-93 (TS98)
90 Your trustworthiness is to all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. 91 According to Your right-rulings They have stood to this day, For all are Your servants. 92 If Your Torah had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. 93 Let me never forget Your orders, For by them You have given me life.
Psalms 119:97 (TS98)
97 O how I love Your Torah! It is my study all day long.
Psalms 119:101 (TS98)
101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I might guard Your word.
Our aim is to bring people to God and have them read the Scriptures regularly so that they too can taste the sweetness of those words. We also dare to ask the readings coming along our sites to compare what we say with that what is written in the set-apart or holy Scriptures. This way we do hope they shall come to see who is who in the Bible and shall be able to say like we are saying:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalms 119:105),
believing that their path is nearing its destination to receive the longed for salvation. Make sure that is true for you.
Psalms 119:103-104 (TS98)
103 How sweet to my taste has Your word been, More than honey to my mouth! 104 From Your orders I get understanding; Therefore I have hated every false way.
We want to show people that all that is written down in the ages ago has to be taken together and can not be separated one book from the other. Those Words which were never produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:21 (TS2009)
21 for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elohim spoke, being moved by the Set-apart Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:11-12 (TS98)
11 And all these came upon them as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come, 12 so that he who thinks he stands, let him take heed lest he fall.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (TS98)
16 All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 (TS98)
3 For this is good and acceptable before Elohim our Saviour, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Micah 4:1-6 (TS98)
1 And in the latter days it shall be that the mountain of the House of יהוה is established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And peoples shall flow to it. 2 And many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of יהוה, to the House of the Elohim of Ya῾aqoḇ, and let Him teach us His ways, and let us walk in His paths. For out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah, and the word of יהוה from Yerushalayim.” 3 And He shall judge among many peoples, and reprove strong nations afar off. They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks – nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither teach battle any more. 4 But each one shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, with no one to make them afraid, for the mouth of יהוה of hosts has spoken. 5 For all the peoples walk, each one in the name of his mighty one, but we walk in the Name of יהוה our Elohim forever and ever. 6 “In that day,” declares יהוה, “I gather the lame, and I bring together the outcast and those whom I have afflicted.
Matthew 5:3 (TS98)
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
Proverbs 30:5-6 (TS98)
5 Every Word of Eloah is tried; He is a shield to those taking refuge in Him. 6 Do not add to His Words, Lest He reprove you, and you be found a liar.
Romans 15:4 (TS98)
4 For whatever was written before was written for our instruction, that through endurance and encouragement of the Scriptures we might have the expectation.
With our writings we do hope to bring that unaltered Word of God in front of our readers their eyes and look forward to them opening them for the Biblical truth, setting aside all those human dogma’s which shed a mist over the real Word of God.
Please do find our new websites and be welcome to follow them.
