KYKNET HOE LIEG HULLE VIR JULLE – Kerk is ‘n Werkwoord, AANVAAR!

Johan Geyser - aanvaar

Johan Geyser

Leuens kom hoofsaaklik in mooi geskenkies toegedraai. Sommige van hulle is selfs oordek met die beste Bybel leeromslag en is met potsierlike strikkies toegedraai, net om jou ingebore behoefte na aanvaarding te troetel. Paulus praat daarvan in Galasiërs 4. Die aanhaling kom uit die Amplified Bible omdat dit die kerninhoud van die gedeelte soveel beter omskryf.

17 These men [the Judaizers] eagerly seek you [to entrap you with honeyed words and attention, to win you over to their philosophy], not honorably [for their purpose is not honorable or worthy of consideration]. They want to isolate you [from us who oppose them] so that you will seek them. 18 Now it is always pleasant to be eagerly sought after [provided that it is] for a good purpose, and not just when I am with you [seeking you myself—but beware of the others doing it]. 19 My little children, for whom I am again in [the pains of] labor until Christ is [completely and permanently] formed within you— 20 how I wish that I were with you now and could change my tone, because I am perplexed in regard to you.

The two stops and two justs

In the business world and particularly in the estate agency business, referrals are one of the best ways to create a constant stream of new customers. It is one of the quickest ways to advertise your expertise as a competent and successful seller of property. Referrals are not only applicable to the business world. In the ordinary and everyday life it has the tendency to either enhance your status as a citizen or to denigrate it, depending on the people with whom you like to associate. I suppose this is why people would rather refer to distinguished persons in society.

Johan Geyser and The “Mosaïek” Seat of Moses

Johan Geyser and The “Mosaiek” Seat of Moses

In 1926 a unique stone seat was found near the southern wall of the Chorazin synagogue. Since then it has been called the “Chair of Moses.” The Chair of Moses is a special seat that is used in some synagogues, even today, on certain occasions, usually located near the most important wall, that which faces Jerusalem. (BAR 13:05 (Sep/Oct 1987).

The photo on the left is of a replica of the Chair (or Seat) of Moses. The original is displayed in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

Jesus once said:

“The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, so do and observe whatever they tell you, but not the works they do. For they preach, but do not practice. (Matthew 23:2-3)

I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to one of Johan Geyser’s most recent sermons on the Mosaiek Church’s podcast page. It formed part of a series on Psalms which he entitled “Psalms as Companion: Psalm 1 – Happiness.” Hadn’t I been familiar with the Mosaic Church’s tomfooleries and dabbling in all kinds of mystical spiritual practices (Centering Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, Listening Prayer, Lectio Divina, Silence, Labyrinths, Retreats, Meditation et al) I would have thought that he truly is a man of God who boldly proclaims the unadulterated Word of God.
