As the secular year comes to a close, we may look at a new year full of hope and for many also with a lot of resolutions being set.
Looking at my starting years at WordPress
This year we face an extra special solstice because it will be followed the next day by a full moon known as the Cold Moon, and you might be able to see a meteor shower to boot. For many the winter-holiday starting we think about the light in the darkness and having a nice family time.
The world shall have to recognise that there is a Source of beginning and life, or a divine Cause for everything. The divine Source is the only One Who can create out of nothing whilst man has always to use something which is already existing to come to a new creation.
The narrative of the Biblical creation story is the idea of ordering that is the result of divine intent. It is a fundamental biblical teaching that the original, divinely ordained order in the physical world has its counterpart in the divinely ordained universal moral order to which the human race is subject.
By the different peoples of the world we can find very similar myths in an effort to explain the beginning, of everything from nothing, by a divine intelligence or a Source of life.
Giving verbal expression to explain that which is outside any model of human experience without obscuring the enduring meaning of the text of the scrolls, showing a One self-sufficient, self-existing and transcendent Being outside of nature.
Mankind has always looked for an understanding concerning the existence of things. They imagined divine powers bringing all those things a life or causing things.
To often we are surrounded by lots of negativism. Best is not to give it an opportunity to make a heavy imprint in us. We better concentrate on the positive things and let us surround by positive people so that we can grow instead of diminishing.
When the Jew ceases to see beyond the black ink on parchment of the Torah scrolls, when the Jew no longer feels a living covenant and an eternal bond with the infinite; when the Jew finds only curious legends, quaint stories and archaic laws, and dissects the Torah as though it were the frozen cadaver [...]
Een Thora-rol is het dichtstbijzijnde ding dat het jodendom heeft voor een heilig object. Nog steeds geschreven vandaag zoals het duizenden jaren geleden was - op perkament, met behulp van een veer, door een meester-schrijver - is het ons meest gekoesterde bezit. We staan in zijn aanwezigheid alsof het een koning is. Men kan vele [...]
De shabbat en het weekeinde liggen alweer achter ons. De laatste dag van het Loofhuttenfeest is begonnen, zondagavond vierden we in Israël het begin van de feestdag Simchat Torah, Vreugde der Wet. (Buiten Israël wordt dit dinsdag gevierd). Zodoende was ook deze zondag weer als een soort vrijdag. De kranten hadden het formaat van de [...]
Not only on Hoshana Rabbah we should ask the Elohim to save us now. Each day of our life we should beseach the Most High: Ana Adonai Hoshia'na, We may count on it that those who call upon the Elohim His name will be saved. "And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be [...]
To the world Words were given, notated by Moshe and his offspring, which are useful for us today, like they were useful in the past and shall be in the future; to to pay attention to, to listen to what Adonai the Most High Elohim says and to obey His mitzvot and laws, so that we shall be able to bear the right fruits and shall be able to live with the hope of His promises.
Willing to communicate with mankind the Elohim giving them His Torah shot his arrows at mankind [y-r-h, "to shoot (an arrow),"] and gave them a first teacher or instructor of God's Laws, hence also often called Torat Moshe. Moshe not writing down a Fable or Fairy tale, but bringing a real life story of man or history of the peoples in an easy way to remember.
