Passover: What is freedom?

24th Mar 2013, hej.

The Passover is often called the feast of freedom. But is this correct? No-one is totally free, but some have less responsibility than others. Those who think they are free often have huge responsibility and are bound by things they think they should do as duties to others dependant on them, or to obtain the things they wish for in life. Those who are least free have the least responsibility. But the highest honour is to be the servant of God. There are lessons for the true servants of Christ.

God, (Dice), Coincidence and Chance

12th Mar 2013, hej.

There is much philosophical and some theological discussion about things we have (and have not) been told about regarding how God operates in this world. This article is in response to a co-incidence: an article on weather, the rejection of co-incidence, sensing Japan's quake in space, an unexpected asteroid and the first Chaos maths. They all have in common one fact: there are things we don't understand about the complexity of how the world works about us. But let's look at them.

There fell a great star from heaven: Chelyabinsk meteor

17th Feb 2013, hej.

Many might be worried about portents in the heavens, but we are not. What we need to know has been told us. But we do like to note whether events in the natural world might 'speak of' things observed in the political world.

Dragon, Year of the Snake & Snake Oil Healing

10th Feb 2013, hej.

It is a matter of culture; one culture reveres snakes the other believes they have their place. In the matter of Dragons. In one culture mighty warriors are described as 'dragons', in another the mighty warrior defeats the dragon. But they may have the same source. It all has to do with the beginning, and cunning.

Gamma Ray Burst, Climate Change and Prophecy

27th Jan 2013, hej.

Some things strike us as interesting. Someone thought the world would be interested that a 'Gamma-ray burst 'hit Earth in the 8th Century'. It was a long time ago. Yet a bunch of scientists have found traces of such an event and are now asking 'why?' and the similar question 'how?'

Pilgrim Strangers & the State

How do true Christians relate to the state? We follow the scriptures and see where our place might be.

2012, end of the world, what the Bible says

21st Dec 2012, hej.

The first point is that when God put the rainbow in the sky, he meant what he said to Noah. God promised to Noah in a covenant, “the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” (Gen 9:12-15).

Palestine … whose land is it?

3rd Dec 2012, gah.


Bible study is research into the unknown, one never knows where they will end up or what conclusions they will draw at the end.  Such is true for me in this journey, the findings were not quite what I thought they would be! ... More

Sandy Storm USA: Awe Inspiring

2nd Nov 2012, hej.

A storm that does things never before seen by this generation: a late summer hurricane meeting an early winter storm,bringing lightning, winds, floods and snow. A storm that seems to target the most populated parts of the USA, New Jersey, New York City and the coasts, including Long Island. It targets these areas just as USA goes to significant elections, when how Israel is treated is a factor.

Why Lightning is a challenge

28th Oct 2012, hej.

This article is going to perhaps test you a little. Is it 'superstitious' to believe the God of the Bible can cause lightning, and might more often than not do so, or is it ignorance to believe science has the answers?
