A particular night to share unleavened bread and red wine

From isolation followers of Christ shall have to remember his sacrificial offering from home. Wednesday Apri 8, shall be a night where we look at the unleavened bread and fermented wine as a symbol for the body (flesh) and blood of Christ, which was given as a ransom price for our sins.

Spoken in the name of Jehovah God for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience

With the month of March, we come to days that we can greet Spring, but also to days that we remember the prophet of God, who came to suffer a lot. Already early, at the beginning of mankind, a first prophecy was given, that he would come into the world and would get wounded for […]

Peace of God surpasses all understanding

The peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts.​—Phil. 4:7. Pray, and then you will receive the peace of God. But notice that “the peace of God . . . surpasses all understanding.” What does that mean? Some translators render this expression “surpasses all our dreams” or “excels all human planning.” Paul was, in […]

The New Covenant Intercessor

After mediating the Law Covenant, Moses did not leave the people to their own devices, but was still interested in them. So much was he devoted to them that, he became mediator in the sense of reconciler or intercessor with God on their behalf. The first occasion for this came soon after the covenant had […]

The Atonement in Type and Antitype 2 Going forth to Jesus

In Heb. 13: 13-16, the Apostle speaks of us going forth to Jesus without the camp, to bear his reproach. Does this mean that we are to consider ourselves and our sacrifices (Rom. 12: 1) as sin offerings, as it were the goat following the bullock? It cannot mean this, for the goat sacrifice has […]

A Ransom for all 3 Seeing Him as He is

A Ransom for all 2 Corresponding price

Divine Justice requires the punishment of disobedience, and cannot allow the guilty to be cleared.(Exodus 34: 6, 7; Rom. 3: 19.) This is the basis of God‘s dealings; “Justice and judgment are the habitation of Thy throne.” (Psa. 89: 14; 97: 2.) He is ” the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither […]

A birthday passed nearly unnoticed

Two days ago it was in certain way a special day we would have loved to celebrate. But it passed before we knew it. Days were floating letting sun and moon exchange the night and days. Normally on the religious part we would not celebrate other feasts than those God gave us to celebrate. The […]

A god who gave his people commandments and laws he knew they never could keep to it

Sayings that Jesus has to be God Very often we encounter Christian writings where is said Jesus has to be God because no man is ever capable to be without sin or to keep to God’s commandments. This month is not different to others. Once again we found a person saying on his website If […]

Atonement And Fellowship 6/8

There is great emphasis in Exodus 26 that the tabernacle was ” one” , joined together in such a way that taught the lesson of unity. The spiritual tabernacle, the believers, was ” pitched” by the Lord- translating a Greek word which suggests ‘crucifixion‘ (Hebrews 8:2). Through the cross, the one, united tabernacle was pitched. […]

Atonement And Fellowship 3/8

When we call ourselves Christian it should be Christ who brought us together through his death on the wooden stake. We were redeemed in one body by the torture post which got us to embrace, and that was the end of the hostility. Christ came and preached peace to all the outsiders and peace to […]
