Don’t mess with God’s grace

Many people don’t understand God’s grace. We live in a world where you have to work for everything you want, and we don’t understand that we receive grace for free. That’s why people often want to do something to receive grace. But grace cannot be “earned”. Grace came into the picture because of God’s incomprehensible […]

Sorry, you didn’t make it …

In the army, my corporal and I butted heads very, very often. I suspect one of the main reasons was that I didn’t like exercise very much. I’m really not built for it and it’s always been a struggle for me. I could never understand why the guy who came first didn’t have to run […]

The Plan Maker

The opinion often is that it is because of people’s choices that God’s plan flopped. Often people say that it’s because of people’s stupid choices, especially in the Garden of Eden, that God’s plan A flopped. Then God had to introduce a plan B, by letting Jesus die on a cross. That’s not true. Jesus […]

His precious blood

We’ve been referring to this a lot, but it’s good to look again at the practice of forgiveness of sins in the Old Testament.

Hindsight, people say, is always the best insight, because when something has already happened, everyone knows exactly how and what the outcome is. A friend of mine always says “Hein’s sight” is the best. Of course, his name is Hein. Try to put yourself in the shoes of the prophets when the Holy Spirit convinced […]

Like Daisy de Melker, or not

Not for sensitive readers. There are stories from the past I don’t want to hear, much less write about, but this is one we need to tackle. Daisy de Melker poisoned two of her husbands and her son with arsenic. All three of them died a terrible death. I read on Netwerk24 what Jans Rautenbach […]

Salvation for all

When God comes knocking at your door, He comes to add value. The value of the roads of death that you won’t have to walk one day. Jesus paid with His life on the cross at Golgotha for this. This adds life-saving value for people. This option is available to all people. Anyone can open […]

A brand-new altar for you

The altar was central to the Old Testament. The altar was the main channel of communication between the people and God. It was the place where the people brought sacrifices to God. It was the place where blood had to flow for the people’s sin. The altar and the animals sacrificed on it were people’s […]

Mountain-climbing, ropes and trust

There’s this story about a man who often went mountain-climbing. He was an experienced mountain-climber and enjoyed discovering all the different routes. One day, on a new route, he stopped for lunch. He opened his packed lunch and thanked God for the privilege to eat in such a beautiful place. The climber got so caught […]
