It is good to hear this message

Mat 25:23  Zijn heer zeide tot hem: Wel, gij goede en getrouwe dienstknecht, over weinig zijt gij getrouw geweest; over veel zal ik u zetten; ga in, in de vreugde uws heeren. 

Ik werd herinnerd aan de gelijkenis van de talenten (Mattheüs 25). Eén was er die uit vrees zijn talent verborg en we weten de uitkomst…

We kennen de gelijkenis van het graan en ook daar lezen we de uitkomst na de keuze.

Het is zaak dat we niet talmen, maar onderzoeken welke weg van ons, welke keuze de Vader de eer zal gaan geven.

Maak mijn uren en mijn tijd tot uw lof en dienst bereid” Woorden uit een oud liedje, maar de moraal is niet verouderd.

Shema een woord dat zowel horen als doen inhoudt. Wij Nederlanders hebben daar twee woorden voor nodig, maar Shema zijn twee handelingen ineen.

Wat we hebben ontvangen is niet zo makkelijk uit te leggen. En er zijn er die veel tegenstand bieden en dan is het goed om niet heen en weer bewogen te worden.

Eddie Chumney is al langer op de weg om het ons duidelijk te maken.

Voor een ieder die echt wil weten wie wij zijn en eruit wil handelen en de engelse taal machtig is, is dit gedeelte van een serie aanbevelingswaardig.



Een andere, ook goede, uitleg is deze van 119ministries met Nederlandse ondertiteling:

Surprised by tears….

Keuzes hebben condities, welke we ook maken…
Geschiedenis geeft inzicht. Goed advies is in het Levende Woord te vinden…Laten we nadenken over levensveranderende keuzes, voordat we de beslissende stap maken..


Over the course of the last six months, Al McCarn and I have been co-authoring a book, Ten Parts in the King, that is about to be published.  We really had most of the book finished within two months of starting, but have sensed Abba guiding us toward refining the text and insuring the tone is right and compassionately humble.  Part of His guidance toward that end, He has led us to place the manuscript before a number of persons from a broad background, both Christian and Jewish, for input, review and feedback.

One such reviewer invited us to middle Tennessee last weekend for a Sunday morning interview to be edited into two segments for her international ministry’s online video program.  While details and links to this upcoming program will be released at the appropriate time, I tell you that to give the background for why we were there…

Upcoming reunion of two separated nations

When we were on our trip through some nations, we arrived one evening in France near an abbey, where a camperplace was…It was quiet, two other campers were there as well.

We were glad to have a place as well. When we spend the evening outside, some locals passed us for a walk in the park… some of us took a walk as well.


After spending the night and breakfast, I took the chance to take a walk and discovered the following sculptures…


There was a whole park with many sculptures and every one told me a story, especially this one!


I took a closer look and the picture explain from my view a story…an important story.

The first thought what came into my mind was chapter 37 of Ezekiel and then the whole story of the one nation, the separation until a certain time, written in Scripture.

Both and different

Hosea 6:1 “Come, and let us return unto YHVH: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know YHVH: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee?”

“Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. 9 Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not. 10 And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to YHVH,their Elohim, nor seek him for all this. 11 Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria. 12 When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard. 13 Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me…”Hosea 7:8-14

Jer.3:8   “And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. 9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. 10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith YHVH. 11 And YHVH said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.”

Jer. 5:11 “or the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith YHVH

The promise

Deut 30:1-7 “And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither YHVH, thy Elohim hath driven thee, 2 And shalt return unto YHVH thy Elohim, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; 3 That then YHVH thy Elohim will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither YHVH thy Elohim hath scattered thee. 4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will YHVH thy Elohim gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: 5 And YHVH thy Elohim will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. 6 And YHVH thy Elohim will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love YHVH thy Elohim with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. 

Both are becoming in one accord


Ezekiel 37: 15- 23 “The word of YHVH came again unto me, saying, 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? 19 Say unto them, Thus saith YHVH ELohim; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. 21 And say unto them, Thus saith YHVH Elohim; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their Elohim”

The next sculpture reminded me of YHVH’s Scriptures…mostly we cant explain simply what He shows us, so we need more books to write or more gigabytes to type our thoughts about His revelations.


It was here that I received these thoughts I now share with you


Shalom, Hadassah

A precious gift from Chanah

It was for the first time I heard about Chanah when our son came home from the US. Tzefanyah P and his wife had invited our son to stay at their place in Georgia.

We met Tzefanyah and Reyyna when we experienced Ariel1.

During the stay, our son, met several people, he experienced the Summit at Tampa, organized by Bney Yosef North America and he was there during a National Shabbat at South Carolina.

One of the persons he met was Chanah, a professional weaver, also known with the name Anita Heist. She would give him a beautiful woven tunic, but our son saw her investment therein, so he personally found out it was too much from her  to give it to him so he thanked her and let it. Chanah told him to create something for me, his mom and so we start with contact together.

Chanah asked me my favorite colours, picture1, she asked also what to weave for me… I was wondering that a woman who have never seen me, would give me something she worked with her whole heart, investing in time, thoughts and materials.

Special is also she put on two tablerunners, one for Reyyna and one for me. Two women, two sisters from the same household of the Father in two different countries.

During this proces Chanah and I realized ourselves we had more in common what we didn’t realize when we start with sharing.

Some people, friends, family do know her also. I have read some articles Pete Rambo wrote about her, illustrated with different pictures I have, so you can read from several sides and sources.


I will show you some pictures from Chanah and I of the tablerunner with the colours and design.

The family of Bney Yosef do have precious talents and gifts. We are just in the beginning to show it to eachother with the humble hearts of children who know they received it from a Father Who love them.

Shalom, Hadassah

Ik hef mijn ogen…

Een trektocht met alleen ons gezin deze zomer heeft mij opnieuw bepaald bij de bijzondere natuur van de schepping. Eén plaats in de Dolomieten trok wel heel direct mijn aandacht en ik besefte dat wij in ons lage land toch wel wat de instelling hebben, dat we iets vrij makkelijk naar de hand kunnen zetten…we polderen land in, maken dijken, pompen water weg enzo…Onwillekeurig nemen we aan dat het land toch vrij makkelijk naar onze hand gezet kan worden. Maar zoiets is in de Dolomieten niet zo eenvoudig. Daar besefte ik opnieuw onze afhankelijkheid, Maar ook de troost ten gevolge van overgave…

Ik mijmerde over de lagelandse instelling van onafhankelijkheid en de gemoedelijkheid van de bevolking die geen bergen opzij kunnen schuiven om hun plannen uit te voeren. Zou de aard van natuur onze instelling kunnen beïnvloeden?

Omstandigheden kunnen dat wél.

Voor mij was het loskomen van velerlei beslommeringen en na een inleiding dat ultieme moment op 1/3 hoogte van de berg te mogen beleven, dat natuur de hand van de Vader laat zien. Natuur die we niet kunnen omzetten of naar onze hand, is een middel tot bevrijding van onze lasten. Hij heeft het gemaakt en naar ons persoonlijk gaat Zijn aandacht uit.

In dat los mogen laten, is er ineens zachtjes naderbij komend het besef dat Hij er is, altijd is, ook nu!

Toen die realiteit me als het ware ging omringen, kwam bij mij die psalm omhoog, waar ik een paar jaar geleden zo’n bijzondere droom overkreeg en ik op zoek ging naar de melodie die bij de droom paste…. Psalm 121

Ik had de melodie “bij” me en dáár…dáár liet ik de klanken komen en de woorden… Als het ware vasthouden wilde ik et, onthouden voor “later”…

Wanneer wij soms ongemerkt, zonder plan vooraf, naar stille plaatsen gaan en de zaken achterwege laten om beslist bereikbaar te zijn of  steeds “online” , kan ons zo’n moment als deze overkomen en gesterkt kunnen we dan weer aan de slag wat op ons pad komt, het woestijnpad …om ons te vormen.

Dank aan Abba YHVH, Die ons gedenkt waar wij ons mogen bevinden,

Shalom, Hadassah
