The Potter and the clay

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in repentance, Sabbatical Year

Every day we get up and face life with all its challenges. Life can be difficult and often is. We all suffer in some way and some, like Job, suffer in many ways at the same time. It seems to me, from personal experience, but also from speaking to other people, that life’s challenges have increased. Have you noticed it too? Not only are we facing increasing natural disasters, threats to our freedom, personal issues, but spiritually things have heated up as well. We live under immense pressure and it is increasing.

Why is this? Could it be that YHVH is trying to show us or teach us something?

Strength to go on

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Faith

We need strength to get through every day, some days more than others. Sometimes life is hard. During these downs we often find it difficult to drag ourselves through yet another day. It seems that there is no light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. This may cause us to be depressed and despondent not wanting to go on.

These are the times we need extra strength. Where do we go to for this? YHVH teaches us through His Word, that there are a number of ways in which we can be strengthened.

Our commission

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Scripture

While doing Bible study this morning, Psalm 96 popped into my mind, and I took my Bible to read it. After having read it a few times a realized just how very profound it was. Here, in this Psalm, we are given instructions on what our focus in life should be, YHVH. YHVH also gave us a commission through King David. What is even more profound is that this commission is in line with the commission given by Y’shua in the Apostolic Writings.

When is First Fruits and how to count the Omer

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in First Fruits, Shavuot

This day also marks the beginning of the counting of the Omer which leads to the next feast, the feast of weeks, 50 days later. The purpose of this article is to go into some more detail regarding this day, especially when it is to take place. There is some disagreement on this among believers. Some say that we are to celebrate the feast of First fruits on the day after the first day of unleavened bread, like Judah does. Others, like ourselves interpret the instructions to celebrate this day on the day after the weekly Sabbath. So, what are we to do? Which interpretation is correct?
